Product Description



‘This masterpiece, to which Wael Hallaq brings the full force of his unparalleled knowledge of the Shari`a … supplies a riveting account of the history of Islamic legal institutions and doctrines, as well as the lived experience of the law. His discussions … mark the coming to full fruition of a new and compelling paradigm in Islamic legal studies. This book promises to be the seminal work in the field for many years to come.’ Judith E. Tucker, Professor of History and Director, Academic Programs in Arab Studies, Georgetown University.

‘A work of deep learning and great theoretical sophistication, yet highly accessible, this book offers an unrivaled introduction to the Islamic legal tradition. The moral underpinnings of the law have never before been highlighted more clearly or in such varied social and political contexts. Hallaq’s portrayal of how the Shari`a has come to be imagined in the modern world and the transformative impact of the nation-state on all facets of Islamic law brings new perspectives to the study of colonial and post-colonial societies, Muslim politics, and modern Islamic thought.’ Muhammad Qasim Zaman, author of The Ulama in Contemporary Islam.
