About The Book
The well known Book on Khilaf, a discipline that records and analyses the differences among Muslim Jurists.
Unlike many recent works which tend to ignore the major Madhahibs this work offers Islamic Jurisprudence According to the Four Sunni Schools, according to the interpretations of more recent scholars trained at al-Azhar University.
It is a valuable and detailed reference work for many scholars and Imams as well as the student of Ilm.
Unlike previous works on Islamic law, which offer a medieval perspective, Islamic Jurisprudence According to the Four Sunni Schools is unique in providing the four legal views, according to the interpretations of more recent traditionalists trained at al-Azhar University.
It is a valuable and detailed reference work for those interested in Islam, Islamic law or comparative law and contains a glossary of Islamic terminology.
This is a must for academic libraries as well as for individuals who want to learn more about the performance of religious duties.
