Details of book fiqh us sunnah
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Q-1: written by whom
The Book Fiqh-us-Sunnah was compiled by one of the most eminent scholars of the 20th century by the name of Shaikh Syed Saabiq of Egypt. Normally the books of Fiqh or Islamic Jurisprudence before the compilation of this work by Shaikh Syed Saabiq were topic based and extremely voluminous in nature for the average believers. Shaikh Syed Saabiq compiled this masterpiece from the various volumes of Fiqh and Islamic Jurisprudence books of the eminent scholars before him in a concise summary in the Fiqh-us-Sunnah, and is accepted today amongst the scholars as amongst the best reference books on Islamic Jurisprudence.
Q-2: what is authenticity we can be assumed for references?
Beloved brother, every aspect of Fiqh or Islamic Jurisprudence can and must be derived only from two sources of knowledge: The Glorious Quran or the authentic Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws). Thus the authenticity of the various rulings on Islamic Jurisprudence by any compiler or recorder will be based only on the authenticity of the evidence they provide from the Quran or Sunnah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
