SKU: 9789675062575 Category: Tags: , , , ,

This book takes an important step “towards the realization of the higher intents of the Islamic law”. First, it opens the door towards the integration of contemporary values and worldview into the maqasid terminology. Secondly, the book gives answers to the complex theoretical questions on the role of maqasid in ijtihad, juristic theorization and the islamization of the human, social, and physical sciences. It also highlights the role and the necessity of a ‘maqasid-informed’ mindset on the intellectual and communal levels, and takes a futuristic look into this branch of Islamic knowledge. The original Arabic version of this book has enjoyed wide success and acceptance in the juridical and intellectual circles of the Islamic world.
