Details:  The Rise & Development of Societal Obligation - 'Fard al-Kifayah'
- in the Fundamentals of Islamic Jurisprudence,
Paperback - 198 pages,
by Nahla Elharaki.

Description :

The book at hand studies the development of Fard al-Kifaya and answers the questions of who, what, where, when, why and how it developed by looking at various perspectives of Islamic theological jurisprudence. It examines the theory and practices of societal [community] obligation.

In order to set this research within a historical perspective, the line of development during the medieval period is traced. The extension and various approaches in resorting to this concept for achieving certain social objectives are examined. Finally, the recent excessive use of this obligation is analysed and related to the social objectives inherant in the concept itself. It will become apparent how the concept of Fard al-Kifaya is an example of the way modern reformists acquire.
