Description

This is a fabulous little giftbook for the intellectually-minded family member who always rolls his/her eyes when they receive those normal giftbooks. Translated here are some of the principles of shariah into sound-bite sized maxims. Perfect for those who speak about Islam in lofty grandiose "concepts" and "grand narratives" that nobody else at the dinner table understands, except that it allows everyone to quickly eat from the cake while his/her lordship's mouth is busy speaking "down at the masses".

From Publisher's Site:

This inspiring collection of sacred maxims is drawn from the genre known in Arabic as al-qawa‘id al-fiqhiyyah. These maxims are pithy sayings that Islamic scholars use as a guide for Islamic practice in a wide range of areas, from the rituals of worship to financial transactions. Though technically translated as “legal maxims”, the array of topics these maxims cover encompass the core ethical principles at the heart of the Shariah.

Given its concision, each maxim is rich in meaning, and the commentary provided by Dr Shahrul Hussain gives us a glimpse into the maxim’s significance. The commentaries, written by a Western Islamic scholar, bring out the relevance of each maxim to the English speaking reader.

Author: Shahrul Hussain
Size, Format: 168 pages, 4.5"x 7" Hardcover [2016]
