   schema:description ""Muhammad ibn Idris al-Shafiʻi (767-820) was one of Islam's foundational legal thinkers. Shafiʻi considered law vital to social and cosmic order, since the key obligation of each Muslim was to obey God, and it was through knowing and following the law that human beings fulfilled this duty. Drawing on the most recent scholarship on Shafi'i's work as well as her own investigations of his life and writings, Kecia Ali explores Shafi'i's innovative ideas about the nature of revelation and the necessary if subordinate role of human reason in extrapolating legal rules from revealed texts. This study sketches his life in his intellectual and social context, including his engagement with other early figures such as Malik and Muhammad al-Shaybani. It explores the development and refinement of his legal method and substantive teachings as well as their transmission by his students. It also shows how he became the posthumous "patron saint" of a legal school; he remains today a figure of popular interest and veneration as well as a powerful symbol of orthodoxy"--Back cover."@en ;
