This book is one of the most important studies of the [Fiqh Zaydite Hdaw£], being the sect whose ideas dominated at the North of Yemen. [Al-Imm Zayd ibn Al£] who died in 122 H/741 AD was the leader who established the [Zayd£] sect, thus its name is derived from his name. The ideas of the [Zayd£] sect are similar to the ideas of the Sunn£ school. The Zaydite accept in their practices in the branches of [Fiqh] those accepted by the school of [Ab an£fa]. The name of the [Hdaw£] sect is derived from the name of [al- Hd£ £la al-aqq Yay ibn al-sayn], a scholar who had studied the science of the fundamentals of [Fiqh] through the teaching of [al-Imm Ab al-Qsim al-Bal¢£] one of the most prominent thinkers of the school [Mutazilite]. Thus, we find that the ideas of [al-Hd£] concerning the fundamentals of [Fiqh] are similar to the ideas of [al-Bal¢£]. On the other hand, [al-Hd£] had liberated himself from the ideas of [al-Bal¢£] in the branches which the latter had presented in his book [Mam al-Fiqh al-Kab£r]. On the other hand, [Al-Hd£] wrote two other books [al-Akm] and [al-Munta¢ab f£ al-Fiqh] where he explained the ideas which got to be accepted totally by the later Zaydites of Yemen concerning the branches of Fiqh. As a result of the expansion of the above mentioned ideas, nobody followed the teachings of [Zayd ibn Al£] anymore. The displayed copy was written by [assn ibn ab£ al-Qsim al-Rab£] in [Nas¢] script. No dots were put for the letters and the first and last pages are missing.
