Jurisprudential Texts with Regard to Issuing Fatwas and Teaching

The author demonstrates his proficiency at powerful lucid expression, and dividing issues in different chapters. Al-Mukhtaar al-Nāfi‘, is another book of Sheikh Ṭūsī, which is an abridgement of Sharāyi‘ al-Islām. Jurists have paid attention to this book and have written some interpretations on it.
