The study of the philosophy of Islamic law, especially its maqasid (objectives, purposes, goals, intents and underlying principles) is a pre-requisite to understanding the Quran and the prophetic tradition, and to developing the Islamic law in a way that achieves common good for Muslims and protects them from harm.

Al-Furqan supports the publication of monographs and studies which specialise in the understanding of the Islamic law through al-maqasid.


The Theory of 'The Revolving of Provisions' in Islamic Jurisprudence: A Study Based on the Methodology and Objectives of Islamic Law

By Jamila Tilout

This book considers the application or development of Islamic legal rulings in changing contexts from a perspective that combines knowledge derived from both the legal theory and maqāṣid domains. The book attempts, in all its chapters, to blend legal theory and maqāṣid; indeed, considering that legal theory lays the foundation . . .

It meets the need of Islamic law (sharī‘ah) students for explanations of the terms and expressions peculiar to the objectives of Islamic law (maqāṣid al-sharī‘ah). It clarifies the uniqueness and differences of words and terms . . .
