This detailed book provides a scholarly critique of the classic Western work on the origins of Islamic law. It refutes Schacht's thesis that Islamic law is not founded on the Koran and presents historical evidence to support the traditional Islamic view that Islamic legal tradition is rooted in the teachings of Muhammad. Al-Azami's On Schacht's Origins of Muhammadan Jurisprudence will be of critical interest to scholars in early Islamic legal history, and, in addition, will prove attractive to Muslim readers. In defending legitimacy of Islamic Law, the book is of special topical interest in countries where Islamic legal code prevails, eg Saudi Arabia, Gulf States, Iran and Pakistan. A useful and detailed analysis of early historical texts is also provided.
