This publication examines how a medieval Syrian Shāfiʿī jurist, Ibn Qāḍī Shuhbah (d. 851/1448), depicted the formation, decline, and the sources for the revival of Islamic law based on his Ṭabaqāt al-fuqahāʾ al-shāfiʿīyah (The Generations of the Shāfiʿī Jurists).

This volume explores the recent decision by Egypt to constitutionalize sharīʿa and analyzes the Egyptian judiciary’s attempts to argue that sharī‘a is consistent with human rights. It will interest anyone studying Islamic law, constitutional thought in the Middle East, or Islam and human rights.
