collectiveness is a prominent characteristic to the Ḥanafī jurisprudential school. This means that adjudication and fatwā under its principles must rely on the most accepted opinion that is authentica
lly attributed to the founder of the school, abū Ḥanīfa al-Nʿmān. For that reason, it was in the interest of the scholars of the school to develop the tools of verification (taṣḥīḥ) and preponderance (tarǧīḥ) through their works. These tools are meant to identify the standpoints that are authentically attributed to abū Ḥanīfa as transmitted through his main students and favoring one of these standpoints over the other, in case of a contradiction occurs. The author wrote this book in al-taṣḥīḥ and al-tarǧīḥ as a commentary on the text of al-Qudūrī; al-Muḫtaṣar, which is considered one of the most prominent texts in the transmission of the Ḥanafī school. Al-Qudūrī's book covered all the fields of jurisprudence, including worships, social transactions, personal status, politics, inheritance, etc. Ibn Quṭlūbuġā in his commentary highlighted the main disagreements between the leading scholars of the school and concluded the approved or most accepted standpoint.
