al-Waraqat

Al-Waraqat is a renowned Islamic classical text on the subject of Usul al-fiqh. It paves the way for a foundational education on the sources of Islamic law and the procedures by which the law is derived from the sources. It is called Waraqat because it is concise, with the Arabic text (matn) fitting in roughly five pages. It is part of a series of Islamic classical texts, known as summarised works (mukhtasarat), that are considered essential study for every serious seeker of Islamic knowledge who wants to follow the methodology laid out by the scholars of Islam to facilitate the acquisition of beneficial knowledge.

There are many explanations of this book available, amongst the best is the sharh by Shaykh Abdullah bin Salih al Fawzaan (generally his sharh of classical books is excellent)
