Radd al-Muhtar ala ad-Dur al-Mukhtar (Arabic: رد المحتار على الدر المختار‎) is a book on Islamic Jurisprudence [Fiqh] by 18th century Islamic Scholar, Allamah Sayyid Muhammad Ameen ibn `Aabideen ash-Shaami. It means "The Answer to the Baffled" over "The Exquisite Pearl".

Radd al Mukhtar is a super commentary on Imam Ala' al-Din al-Haskafi's Islamic Jurisprudence book Durr al-Mukhtar fi sharh Tanweer al Absaar. It is widely considered as the central reference for fatwa in the Hanafi Madhab. The Indo-Pak scholars often refer to Ibn Abidin as "al-Shami" and to his Hashiya as "al-Shamiyya" or "Fatawa Shami".[1]

This Voluminous work has been translated into different languages like Turkish and Urdu.
