Description :

This third edition of the best-selling title 'Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence' has been completely revised and substantially enlarged. In this work, Prof Kamali offers us the first detailed presentation available in English of the theory of Muslim law (usul al-fiqh). Often regarded as the most sophisticated of the traditional Islamic disciplines, Islamic Jurisprudence is concerned with the way in which the rituals and laws of religion are derived from the Qur’an and the Sunnah—the precedent of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.

Written as a university textbook, Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence is distinguished by its clarity and readability; it is an essential reference work not only for students of Islamic law, but also for anyone with an interest in Muslim society or in issues of comparative Jurisprudence.

        ‘The best thing of its kind I have ever seen. Exactly the kind of thing
         I have wanted for years to put into the hands of students
                                                    ---Professor Charles Adams, McGill University.

        ‘This book is a valuable addition to existing Islamic jurisprudential
         literature in English … remarkably successful
                                                    ---The Muslim World Book Review.

Prof. Mohammad H. Kamali is Chairman of the International Institute of Advanced Islamic Studies, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He was formerly Professor of Law at the International Islamic University Malaysia, where he taught Islamic law and jurisprudence for over twenty years.
