Women in Classical Islamic Law: A Survey of the Sources

Image not available lge

ISBN13: 9789004174351
Published: October 2009
Publisher: Brill Academic Publishers
Country of Publication: The Netherlands
Format: Hardback
Price: £104.00



Drawing on legal and hadith texts from the formative and classical periods of Islamic legal history, this book offers an overview of the questions prominent jurists asked and answered when they thought about women’s issues. All assumed a woman would marry and thus the book concentrates on women’s family life. The introduction establishes the historical framework within which the jurists worked. A chapter on Qur’an verses devoted to women’s lives is followed by chapters on marriage and divorce which compare the views of jurists during the formative period. The fourth chapter describes the evolution from the formative to the classical periods. The fifth uses material from both periods to describe the array of legal opinion about other aspects of women’s lives in and outside their homes. Throughout, jurists’ opinions are juxtaposed with relevant quotations from contemporaneous hadith collections.
