On Schacht’s Origins of Muhammadan Jurisprudence
By Professor Muhammad Mustafa Al-Azami
Paperback 238 Pages 
ISBN : 9780946621460
Publisher : Islamic Texts Society (ITS), Cambridge UK

About The Book

This in-depth study presents a detailed analysis and critique of the classic Western work on the origins of Islamic law, Schacht’s Origins of Muhammadan Jurisprudence. Azami’s work examines the sources used by Schacht to develop his thesis on the relation of Islamic law to the Qur’an, and exposes fundamental flaws in Schacht’s methodology that led to the conclusions unsupported by the texts examined. This book is an important contribution to Islamic legal studies from an Islamic perspective.

Whosoever is awake (to the material world) is the more asleep (to the spiritual world); his wakefulness is worse than his sleep.
 
(Mathnavi of Maulana Rumi)
