An Introduction to Islamic Law by Joseph Schacht
English | Oct. 27, 1983 | ISBN: 0198254733 | 312 Pages | PDF | 10 MB

This book presents a broad account of the present knowledge of the history and outlines the system of Islamic law. Showing that Islamic law is the key to understanding the essence of one of the great world religions, this book explores how it still influences the laws of contemporary Islamic states, and is in itself a remarkable manifestation of legal thought. THis book contains an account of our present knowledge of the history and of the outlines of the system of Islamic law. It is intended for two groups of readers: students of history, social sciences, and comparative law on the one hand, and on the other, students of Arabic who might wish to embark upon this particularly important and attractive branch of Islamic studies. Islamic law provides us with a remarkable example of the possibilities of legal thought and of human thought in general, and with a key to understanding the essence of one of the great world religions. This book is concerned with the unique historical phenomenon of Iplamic law as such, and not with the contemporary laws of those countries in the Near East and elsewhere where Muslims live.
