"Based on primary sources, this study...surveys the evolution of Hanafi legal reasoning (fiqh) in the Islamic world and assesses its historical distinctiveness." -Islamic Horizons

Abu Hanifah Nu'man ibn Thabit was one of the greatest pioneers in the history of Islamic Law, particularly in legal reasoning. The Hanafi Legal School that he founded has become the most widely followed among the world's Muslims. Based on primary sources, this study of the life and legacy of Abu Hanifah also surveys the evolution of Hanafi legal reasoning (fiqh) in different regions of the Islamic world and assesses its historical distinctiveness.

Mohammed Akram Nadwi is a research fellow at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, and is the author of several works including al-Muhaddithat: the Women Scholars in Islam (2007).

About the Author:

Mohammed Akram Nadwi: Mohammed Akram Nadwi, former student then teacher of Hanafi‚ and Shafi‚ law at the prestigious Nadwa ul-Ulama (Lucknow, India), is now a Research Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies. He is the author (in Arabic) of several biographies, and editions and translations of classical fiqh works. His most recent publications in English are a multi-volume primer of Hanafi fiqh (al-Fiqh al-Islami, 2007 ), and al-Muhaddithat: the Women Scholars in Islam (2007).

Review:

"The author has successfully delivered his promise to understand as to 'why' and 'how' Abu Hanifa came to deserve the title 'Al-Imam al-A'zam'; it now remains the duty of the scholars to imbibe Abu Hanifa's teachings in trying to understand the Qur'an and Sunna holistically in both letter and spirit." Dr M Mansur Ali - Cardiff University
