Towards a Respectful Diversity: Studies in Usul al-Fiqh

Istishab (The Law of Presumption) & al-‘Aql (Intellective Authority) (Session 11)

With Shaykh Abdullah bin Hamid Ali (Bio - http://lamppostwebinar.squarespace.com/shaykh-abdullah-bin-hamid-ali/)

A series of classes that will focus on the origins and sources of Islamic law over a course of 12 sessions. By understanding the rationale and procedures by which we can apply the different elements of jurisprudence, it is hoped that students can see the various levels of diversity and increase the respect for the broad legal rulings present in the Islamic world.

II. The Qur’an: History & Import

III. The Sunnah: The Problem of Finding a Unified Definition

IV. How Semantics Hinder Us: Showcasing Bid’a

V. Interpretative Standards: The Literal versus The Figurative

VI. Ijma’ (Scholarly Consensus): Parameters, Forms & Implications

VII. Qiyas (Legal Analogy): On Base or Baseless?

VIII. Istihsan & al-Masalih al-Mursala (Analogous Digression): Authority & Considerations

IX. ‘Urf (Custom), Shar’ Man Qablana (Pre-Qur’anic  Scriptural Injunctions), and Qawl al-Sahabi (Companion Legal Opinions)

X. ‘Amal Ahl al-Medina (Post-Prophetic Medinite Customs)

XI. Istishab (The Law of Presumption) & al-‘Aql (Intellective Authority)
