Duderija, Adis, Maqasid al-Shari’a and Contemporary Reformist Muslim Thought. An Examination, Palgrave Macmillan, 2014, 288p.
How exactly are the various proponents of contemporary Muslim reformist thought employing the concept of Maqasid al-Shari’a for the purposes of their reformist agenda? Maqasid al-Shari’a and Contemporary Reformist Muslim Thought looks at the effectiveness of Maqasid al-Shari’a – as understood as both a classical legal hermeneutical construct developed by premodern Islamic legal theoreticians, and also in terms of contemporary re-conceptualisations – in meeting the challenges of Muslim reformist thought. This book, at times, critically examines the employment of the concept of Maqasid al-Shari’a in relation to number of specific philosophical, legal, ethical, social, and political issues.
