Description from the publisher:
The Mejelle: English Translation of Majallah el-Ahkam-i-Adilya and a Complete Code on Islamic Civil Law
The Mejelle was the civil code of the Ottoman Caliphate, and is considered to be the first attempt to codify Islamic law. In recent decades many research works have been undertaken to examine the provisions contained in Mejelle and the extent of compatibility to the current civil codes of many Muslim countries. Today the Mejelle is used as one of the main sources of the study of Islamic law in institutions of higher learning. This new reprint appeals not only to academics but also practitioners.
