    I don’t know what happened but it clearly seems that there are parts missing (like the lesson zakah on livestock starts off carrying on from a previous lesson zakah, plus the chapter of fasting,hajj is missing), last time I checked there just over 30 lessons. seems strange and it may be a technical error.
