520 "The diversity of interpretation within Islamic legal
traditions can be challenging for those working within
this field of study. Using a distinctly contextual
approach, this book addresses such challenges by combining
theoretical perspectives on Islamic law with insight into
how local understandings impact on the application of law
in Muslim daily life. Engaging with topics as diverse as
Islamic constitutionalism, Islamic finance, human rights
and internet fatawa, Shaheen Sardar Ali provides an
invaluable resource for scholars, students and
practitioners alike by exploring exactly constitutes
Islamic law in the contemporary world. Useful examples,
case studies, a glossary of terms and the author's
personal reflections accompany traditional academic
critique, and together offer the reader a unique and
discerning discussion of Islamic law in practice"--Back
