Description from the publisher:
This in-depth study, carried out by one of Islam's leading scholars, presents a detailed analysis and critique of the classic Orientalist work, Schacht's Origins of Muhammadan Jurisprudence. Azami's work examines the sources used by Schacht to develop his thesis on the relation of Islamic law to the Qur'an, and exposes fundamental flaws in Schacht's methodology that lead to conclusions unsupported by the texts examined. This book is an important contribution to Islamic legal studies from an Islamic perspective.
