Search: Middle East and Islamic Studies - Islamic Law, 2007
Joseph E. Lowry
This book offers a comprehensive reinterpretation of Shāfiʿī’s Risāla and shows how Shāfiʿī sought to formulate an all-embracing hermeneutic that portrays the law as a tightly interlocking structure organized around defined interactions of the Qurʾān and the Sunna.
The book examines the drafting of the Egyptian Civil Code of 1949, exposing its unknown sociological strata, under the leadership of Dr. ‘Abd al-Razzāq al-Sanhūrī, one of the most prominent jurist to emerge to date in the Arab world.
Edited by Eugene Cotran and Martin Lau
