*[A5] Paperback - 96 pages, NEW, Revised Edition,
by Dr Taha Jabir al-Alwani,
Published by Int. Inst. of Islamic Thought.

Description :

Usul al-Fiqh is a science which is deeply embedded in the Islamic experience and one which, thanks to its methods and concerns, helped generate an empirical trend in Muslim cluture, in turn benefitting western thinking. Itself a creation of influences from within and without, al-Usul, often called "the philosophy of Islam," invites both reason and revelation to work for the harmony and well-being of human society.

Although this science is mainly concerned with legal matters, its range and the arsenal of tools it uses makes it attractive to students of Islamic jurisprudence as well as to other scholars of Islamic knowledge and culture. The difficulties it poses are inevitable. This book, however, attempts to simplify this "most important method of research ever devised by Islamic thought" during its most creative period, and bring it to the understanding and appreciation of the modern learner, while underscoring its importance and relevance to the world of Islam today.
