Custom in Islamic Law and Legal Theory : the Development of the Concepts of ʻUrf and ʻĀdah in the Islamic Legal Tradition


This book, “Custom in Islamic Law and Leal Theory: the Development of the Concepts of ‘Ādah in the Islamic Legal Tradition“, explores the relationship between custom and Islamic law and seeks to uncover the role of custom in the construction of legal rulings. On a deeper level, however, it deals with the perennial problem of change and continuity in the Islamic legal tradition (or any tradition for that matter).
