Last Updated Date:   9 November 2021

5 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
The purpose of this course is two-fold: on the one hand, to examine parts of the legal history and heritage of Islam and the development of the traditions of Islamic law on the other, to reflect upon the nature and concept of law coming from this heritage and its influence on other aspects of society. As such, we will read materials, and consider issues, related to three topics: the history of Islamic legal thought from the formative period; the crystallisation of Islamic legal thought into works of fiqh and usul al-fiqh; and the contemporary application and practice of Islamic law.
