ISLAMIC LAW

THEORY AND PRACTICE
By (author)ROBERT GLEAVE

 15,426

This classic study deals with the theory and practice of Islamic law in both the formative classic and modern periods and over a range of societies. It is divided into four sections dealing with legal theory; fatwas and muftis in classical Islamic law; the position of religious minorities under Islamic law, and modern developments in Islamic law. The book explores the concept of Ijtihad, or juristic disgression–the process through which a jurist apprehends God’s law and can turn it into a legal ruling–and how this has influenced the formulations of law in both Sunni and Shi’i Islam. The subject is viewed from an historical as well as a theoretical angle.
