particularly when the area of scholarship is a religion that presents
itself as being suited to all communities at all times.
The selection has to start with the founders of the eight schools of
jurisprudence who have had a continuous following over the centuries
up to the present day.
This book introduces nine scholars from these schools and adds two
more from a much later era whose influence extended far beyond the
area of pure scholarship.
In simple language, this book gives a clear picture of how the Islamic
schools of jurisprudence differ in their methodologies, showing at the
same time how much interaction they project.
It serves as a primary source for those who wish to follow a course in
Islamic studies, this book is indispensable for others who wish to have
a fair but concise idea about the most important personalities who
have shaped Islamic scholarship for centuries.
