Authoritative Hanafi Books (Diagram)

This is work-in-progress diagram showing the major books that have been considered authoritative within the Hanafi school of law, and the relatonships between them.

Note

– the numbers in each oval represent the year of death of the author in the Hijri calendar

– the list of books of fatawa (shown on the right) is not intended to be exhaustive.

Still remaining to be done:
– Color-code the arrows to show what exactly is going on, whether summary, commentary, use as as source, etc.

– Color-code the book name text to indicate the type of work (matn, sharh, hashiya)

– Color-code the ovals to reflect the geography of the author
