The lafz mukhtasar means brief, short.

The lafz has been used wonderfully in the song Tum Pukar Lo from the movie Khamoshi, when Hemant Kumar sings Gulzar saab’s poetry – “…mukhtasar si baat hai, tum se pyar hai” (it’s a short and simple thing really, I am in love with you).

Mukhtaṣar in Islamic law, refers to a concise handbook of legal treatises, characterized by neatness and clarity. Mukhtasars originated during the Abbasid caliphate and were created as a method to facilitate the quick training of lawyers without the repetitiveness of lengthy volumes, yet evolved into a mode of access into the fundamentals of Islamic law for the educated layperson.

The opposite of mukhtasar is taweel or tawalat, which means to prolong or to elaborate.
