"Lisān al-ḥukkām fī maˁrifat al-aḥkām" is the only work by Lisān ad-Dīn Abū'l-Walīd Aḥmad b. Aš-Šiḥna al-Ḥalabī al-Ḥanafī, who was appointed to the Upper Kadi of the Ḥanafīts in Aleppo in the year 862/1458. He wrote this book whilst exercising the duties of his office. This work deals with two main issues: judicial verdicts and the rights of a human compared to those of his fellow men. By the time he died from the plague at the age of 38, he had managed to write 21 of the 30 chapters that he had planned. His book is one of the most practical and popular among the Fiqh books due to its extensive legal sources, its structuring and the procedure it follows. An Aleppinian scholar by the name of Burhan ad-Dīn Ibrāhīm al-Ḫālifī al-'Adawī al-Ḥalabī al-Ḥanafī went on to complete the book. He continued to use the same legal sources and follow the original structuring and procedure until the book was complete in 1015/1606.
