Prints in 3-5 business days
This book is about qawa`id fiqhiyyah, which are sometimes referred to as legal maxims. In reality, the qawa`id play a much wider and more effective role as compared to legal maxims. Islamic law is... More > all about principles and rules; it has been so from the day of its birth. The reason is that principles and rules were laid down by the Qur'an and the Sunnah. The relationship between the disciplines of usul al-fiqh and qawa`id fiqhiyyah is like the relationship between the two arms of the human body; they cooperate with each other to yield the rules of fiqh. This vital relationship has been kept concealed by separating the two disciplines and by severing the bond between them. This book attempts to uncover this relationship, and to restore the bond. Understanding this relationship will enhance understanding of the discipline of usul al-fiqh as well.< Less

LexIslamica Series – Book 2 – The Original Meaning of Ḥanafī Uṣūl al-Fiqh By Imran Ahsan Khan Nyazee & M. Ibrahim Abdullah Khan Nyazee
Paperback: $12.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
The texts of the Ḥanafī School on uṣūl al-fiqh written up to the end of the Fifth Century of the Hijrah show that the discipline of uṣūl al-fiqh was significantly... More > different from what it turned out to be in the later centuries, which were more theoretical in nature as compared to the earlier texts. As Shāfi‘ī uṣūlīs started wielding greater influence, especially the promotion of a different concept of the Sunnah and a more literal approach, Ḥanafī writers probably went on the defensive, incorporating ideas from Shāfi‘ī uṣūl. The purpose of this book is not to trace the historical development of uṣūl al-fiqh, but to merely identify what the early uṣūlīs like Jaṣṣaṣ, Dabbūsī and Sarakhsī had to say about the discipline of uṣūl al-fiqh. Another aim is to find out the nature of the discipline during the early period that was responsible for growth and dynamism. The main emphasis, however, is on the meaning of uṣūl al-fiqh as a discipline and on the nature of the rules of interpretation (qawn̄īn uṣūliyyah).< Less
