This work sets out in a concise format, the laws governing Islamic society as dictated by the Qoran. Among the topics discussed are fundamental social matters relating to marital relations, slavery, inheritance, charities, criminal offences, trade and commerce, and food.

In addition, various appendices treat sects and divisions, and other matters relating to the main theme. Muhammed not only codified the religion, he also appeared as a social reformer, and the direction his reforms took was naturally determined by the character of the practices which operated in Arabia at the time of his appearance. Furthermore, allowance has also to be made for the debt which Islamic laws owe to those found in the Old Testament and Talmudic literature.

This work is full of Qoranic quotations which support the main theme, and thereby give scriptual authority to the interpretation of the social laws of Islam.
