This definitive sourcebook presents more than sixty authoritative new translations of key Islamic texts. Edited and translated by three leading specialists, Classical Islam features eight thematically-linked sections covering the Qur'ān and its interpretation, the life of Muhammad, hadīth, law, theology, mysticism and Islamic history. The new edition has been expanded to cover a fuller range of material illustrating the growth of Islamic thought from its seventh-century origins through to the end of the medieval period. It includes illustrations, a glossary, extensive bibliography and explanatory prefaces for each text. Classical Islam is an essential resource for the study of early and medieval Islam and its legacy.

Jawid Mojaddedi is Associate Professor of Religion at Rutgers University, USA. He received the Lois Roth Prize for translations of Rumi’s Masnavi and is author of The Biographical Tradition in Sufism (RoutledgeCurzon 2001).

Review:

"The vision of a comprehensive anthology of medieval Islamic religious texts has reached its zenith in this second edition. The readable translations and helpful introductions provide faculty and students with a necessary library of texts for close reading and discussion in courses on Islam." - Richard C. Martin, Emory University, USA

"A substantial and rich selection from key texts, together with clear and helpful explanations of the literature and subjects discussed." - Gerald Hawting, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, UK

"An invaluable sourcebook.' - Centre for Islamic Studies Newsletter
