Product Description

Review

'… a magnificent survey of jurisprudence, treating especially the problem of what scholastic writing was intended to accomplish: the guidance of Muslim laymen, the display of erudition, aesthetic pleasure, and reassurance and inspiration for the pious … stresses the literary pleasures of reading Islamic law books, normally unavailable except to those with advanced ability in reading Arabic.' Christopher Melchert, Journal of Islamic Studies

Book Description

In this book, Colin Imber has put together and edited four previously unpublished essays by Norman Calder. Typically incisive, they categorize and analyze the different genres of Islamic juristic literature that was produced between the tenth and fourteenth centuries, showing what function they served both in the preservation of Muslim legal and religious traditions and in the day-to-day lives of their communities.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a collection of essays discussing scholarly disagreements concerning the interpretation of Sharia. I didn't finish reading it because it was very boring and repetitive.
