Perhaps al-Quduri's most famous work, Al-Mukhtasar is also known as al-Kitab. The number of issues it addresses is 12,500, spanning the entire spectrum of fiqh, for the book covers not only matters of worship, but also business transactions, personal relations and penal and judicial matters. Abu `Ali al-Shashi said about the book, "Whoever memorizes this book is the best accomplished of our associates in memorization, and whoever understands it is the best accomplished of our associates in understanding."
It is related that when al-Quduri wrote this book, he carried it with him to the Ka`bah, and hung it from its curtains. He asked Allah the Exalted to bless him in it, and this prayer was apparently fulfilled. The book is recognized and respected as a reliable book of the school, and has had various commentaries written on it. It has been said that Hafiz Ibn Taymiyyah, the Hanbali scholar, used Al-Mukhtasar as his primary reference for the Hanafi School's positions. Up to this day, the book enjoys a wide acclaim, still forming a part of the teaching curriculum in many traditional Islamic Schools, and with prominent and accomplished contemporary scholars continuing to recommend and approve it as a teaching text.
Knowledge about matters of faith and creed is a priority for every Muslim. Learning about the creed is obligatory and promises protection from deviant beliefs and misunderstandings. The Creed of Imam al-Tahawi is the simplest, most reliable and is considered if not the most accepted book of Aqeedah by the Muslim Ummah.
