Unknown place of origin.

This is one of the most authoritative texts in Shiʿa jurisprudence. It contains all aspects of jurisprudence, with a sequence known to the authors within Shia discipline, namely Prayers, Contracts, Unilateral Obligations, and Precepts. The author provides a clear, explicit, and brief overview of the Shia jurisprudence in this book. Muḥaqqiq Ḥillī had a book called 'Sharāyiʿ al-Islām fī Masāyil al-Ḥalāl va al-Ḥarām' in jurisprudence. He abridged it some time later to create al-Nāfiʿ fī Mukhtaṣar al-Sharāyiʿ, which gained a reputation as al-Mukhtaṣar al-Nāfiʿ. Mukhtaṣar-i Nāfiʿ is a book in jurisprudence that Muḥaqqiq Ḥillī has compiled based on his own Fatwas, containing the most important Shia jurisprudential issues in a concise manner. The book includes a full course of Shia jurisprudence with very detailed definitions and discussions, which show the mastery of the author in the field. The author himself has written a commentary on this work, called by him as 'al-Muʿtabar'.
