Description from the publisher:
An attempt to recapture the original vitality, which was ever concomitant with high moral code of Islam. In order to address the amazingly complex, intertwined and fluxional aspects of modern life, forms much of the argument of the paper. In the process, both past and contemporary trends are scrutinized and major areas of debate delineated. Emphasized throughout is to need for reform and redefinition in area’s like Ijma, `Ifta and qiyas’. This is also extended to such concepts as reasons, knowledge, and education in relation to divine revelation. Fashionable and borrowed concepts like democracy and sovereignty are examined in the context of a considered Islamization of one discipline, that of political science.
