AbstractThis is a nice treatise in Hanafi Jurisprudence entitled "Kashf alkina'a 'an Mas'alat altabarru'a bima yastahiqqul radhie'e" which means (uncovering the mask of bestowing the suckling's rights), authored by the scholar sheikh Hasan Bin Ammar bin Ali al Sharanbalali. The sheikh answered a question about a man who divorced his wife, and a trivial amount of money was assigned to his ex wife in return of her breast feeding and taking care of his suckling. The man wanted to stop this allocation by claiming that he found another woman who was ready to wet nurse his son for free in addition of his being a poor man.
This treatise, although short, is worth to be considered. It is old , of unique subject, of few versions and its author is well known and estimated. The author was called the Lantern of the Azhar and its shiningt planet. It was said that if the man who wrote the book of al Siraj al Wahhaj saw him, he would quote some of his light and if the author of al dhahira saw him he would disappear at his appearance. He was the master of disputed matters, the one whose treatises and presentations surpassed the most beneficial means.
Allah, be He exalted, bestowed upon me the means to find two hand written copies after long search and much effort. I strained myself to scrutinize it according to accurate scientific scrutinizing, to serve those who seek to learn jurisprudence, I amended the text, classified the ayas, defined the terms and gave a biography of figures as well as a preface of the author's life.
