Shatibi’s Philosophy of Islamic Law

A revised and enlarged version of the author’s Islamic Legal Philosophy

Abu Ishaq al-Shatibi (d.1888) had sought an answer to the challenge posed by modernisation and change to Islamic law, by introducing maslahah, which forms the basis of his philosophy of Islamic law. In a fascinating way, the author leads us step by step to what he considers the true import of Shatibi’s views concerning Jurisprudence.
