Description from the publisher:
A must for every Muslim household, this best seller is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of Islamic Law including family relations, marriage and divorce, crime and punishment, inheritance and disposal of property, economics and much more.
A comprehensive yet concise study of the Islamic legal system based on divine guidance. This book considers both the sources of Islamic Law and its application to all aspects of life, including family relations, marriage and divorce, crime and punishment, inheritance and disposal of property, trading and commerce, economics including the collection of zakat and taxes, international laws and jihad. This masterful work of Professor Doi continues, as it has done for many years, to provide an authoritative reference for university teachers and students, as well as being enlightening for wider general readers, for it is by the Shari'ah that the balance, effectiveness - and above all the ability to administer justice - of other legal systems can be truly assessed. A detailed manual on the permitted and prohibited in Islam in regards to most external and social matters, with this one dedicating a good portion upfront to the principles of jurisprudence, resulting in a handy volume that has both theory and practice of shari'ah.
