Islamic legal orthodoxy : twelver Shiite responses to the Sunni legal system by Devin J Stewart( )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 1,901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Br> Islamic Legal Orthodoxy : Consensus and the Development of the Twelver Shiite Legal Madhhab by Stewart, Devin Terms of use A reading of Shiite jurisprudence that indicates the extent to which the consolidation of the Sunni "madhhabs" or schools of law, controlled the subsequent history of Islamic religious doctrine and institutions not only for the Sunni community but also for prominent marginal or minority groups such as the Shiites and the Kharijis. Finds that the orthodox Sunni legal system set the ground rules by which marginal sects negotiated their identity and place within the Muslim world. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Disagreements of the jurists : a manual of Islamic legal theory by Abū Ḥanīfah Nuʻmān ibn Muḥammad( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Al-Qāḍimal-Nu'mān was the chief legal theorist and ideologue of the North African Fatimid dynasty in the tenth century. This translation makes available in English for the first time his major work on Islamic legal theory (uṣūl al-fiqh), which presents a legal model in support of the Fatimids' principle of legitimate rule over the Islamic community. Composed as part of a grand project to establish the theoretical bases of the official Fatimid legal school, Disagreements of the Jurists expounds a distinctly Shi'i system of hermeneutics, which refutes the methods of legal interpretation adopted by Sunni jurists"--
Vitality and dynamism : interstitial dialogues of language, politics, and religion in Morocco's literary tradition( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interstitial Dialogues of Language, Politics, and Religion in Moroccos Literary Tradition Anti-colonial literature is not necessarily combat literature as Fanon and Déjeux have both suggested in their own writings. While it is often combative, there is also anti-colonial literature that emphasizes the human and the humane rather than the oppositional and contentious; it cannot be fair to label all anti-colonial literature as combative, even if one were to expand the definition of combat to include peaceful struggles against oppression or dehumanization. This book suggests that the relationship between the West and the rest of the world has been imagined as a relationship of Self (the West) to Other (the rest of the world), ordered and bordered geographically by the whims of Europeans and creating a Center-Periphery paradigm. These invented boundaries of humanity serve to separate geographical sites, but more, they serve to enclose the Empire and exoticize other cultures. Boundaries are often spatial, but more often, they are related to relationships and colonialization.

Twelver shīʻī jurisprudence and its struggle with Sunnī consensus by Devin J Stewart( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study attempts to explain how and why the Twelver Shi'is adopted the guild- based system of jurisprudence first developed by the Sunnis. Drawing on Sunni le gal and theological works, it first outlines a theory of legal heresy in Sunni I slam based on the concept of 'violating the consensus' (mukhalafat al-ijma'). Th e study contends that this definition of heresy threatened to exclude Twelver Sh i'is from the system of legal education and scholarhsip, and that it provoked a number of reactions which are seen in Shi'i legal scholarship. Using biographica l dictionaries, ijazah documents, and works on law and legal methodology, this s tudy argues that Shi'i reactions to Sunni consensus may be seen as falling into three broad categories: rejection of consensus, conformance to consensus, and ad option of consensus. Scholarship on Shi'ism to date suggests that the first cate gory would be the prevalent one, since Shi'ism is seen as a religion of protest inclined to reject the majority. While the rejection of the majority's legal sys tem was a significant theme in Shi'i legal literature, and characterized in part icular the Shi'i Akhbari movement, it has not been historically the most importa nt trend. Shi'is often adopted the Shafi'i madhhab in order to participate in th e system of Sunni madhhabs, and have furthermore endeavored to establish Twelver Shi'ism as a madhhab on a par with those of the Sunnis. This last trend has bee n of enormous importance in the history of the development of Shi'i jurisprudenc e, and began in the late fourth/tenth and early fifth/eleventh centuries with th e Shi'i adoption of the concept of consensus
