INT-11617 Applied Islamic Jurisprudence

Module 4: Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence

Unit 1: Applied Islamic Jurisprudence
Seminar: Critique of al-Waraqat
Tutorial: Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence 

Overview

The study of Usul al-Fiqh is the study of the historical development of Islamic jurisprudence. The goal is to become familiar with the historic, social, and religious factors in the development of Islamic legal schools, and to become acquainted with the framework of jurisprudential discussion. Students who study this module should have completed some previous studies in the area, as tuition will be based less around identifying the sources of Islamic law, and more around how they have been used by Imams and in the practice of ijtihad to form clear and delineated schools of thought.

Primary Text

Ilm Usul al-Fiqh

About the Text

Ilm Usul al-Fiqh was written by one of the pioneers in contemporary juristic studies, Shaykh Abdul Wahhab Khallaf (d.1375 A.H.). The text is counted amongst the contemporary works that make Islamic jurisprudence and legal theory accessible to the modern reader.

About the Author

Shaykh Abdul Wahab Khallaf has written many compilations on Islamic Law and Islamic legal theory. He is an Imam in the Arabic language, constitutional law, and Islamic jurisprudence. He was born in Egypt and memorised the Quran by the age of 12. He completed his studies under many scholars and graduated from al-Azhar University. He was later appointed as professor at Cairo University where he served until his retirement, though he continued to teach through illness and old age until he died in 1375 A.H. /1956 C.E.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this module students should be able to:

  • Understand the historic, social, and religious development of Usul al-Fiqh
  • Apply traditional Usul al-Fiqh to the modern era
  • Demonstrate proficiency in the understanding of the methodology of Islamic law-making
  • Analyse the arguments and propositions used in legal rulings (fataawa), gaining insights to their relative merit
