It was a challenging effort to render the term Maqasid in English. We chose to leave it as it is in the book's title. However throughout the book, it was translated as : Goals, Objectives, Higher Objectives, principles, Intent, Purpose, and ends depending on the context. (From the Foreword )

Ibn Ashur’s famous and pioneering study of the Shariah’s higher objectives and goals. To restore the intimate contact between Muslims and the Qur’an scholars developed the study of the objectives of Islam. The Shariah is marked by a universal wisdom whereby every legal ruling has a function which it performs, an aim which it realises, an intention which it seeks to fulfill and all of this in order to realise benefit to human beings or to ward off harm or corruption.

Muhammad al-Tahir ibnAshur  (1879 -1973~)was an eminent figure in the institution of the Tunisian scholars  for most of the twentieth century. He is also highly regarded as a Muslim reformist and his Qur’anic tafsir  al-Tahrir wa’l-tanwir, is among the influential tafsirs produced in the modern era. 
Since he lived during the colonial period, as well as the early period of Tunisian independence, IbnAshur’s intellectual output reflects different forces and stands witness to the dilemma experienced by the ‘ulama’ in a time of unprecedented change.
Influenced by Muhammad ‘Abduh, and responding to modern challenges to Islamic traditions, IbnAshur called for substantive reforms in Islamic education. His work on the ultimate purposes of the Shari‘a represents not only an attempt to revive the maqasid theory of Shatibi, but also a significant addition to modern efforts to renew Islamic legal theory. IbnAshur, however, seems to have become disappointed with the independent state’s drive for modernisation and radical secularisation.
