Open Access Encyclopedia: al-Mawsû'a al-fiqhiyya

al-Mawsû'a al-fiqhiyya (Encyclopedia of Islamic Jurisprudence)
"(...) the most successful of a series of Islamic law encyclopaedias. (...) a cross between a dictionary and an encyclopaedia. The main entries consist of digests of various areas of Islamic law. Some of the articles are monographic in length. The exposition is synthetic - the law of each [sunnite, AN] school is not treated in seperate sections." Aron Zysow, in: Aptin Khanbaghi (ed.): Encyclopedias about Muslim Civilisations (2009), p. 18
