Synopsis: In this seminal work, Khaled Abou El Fadl analyzes the construction of the authoritative and authoritarian in contemporary Islamic discourses. He argues that authoritarian discourses negate the authoritativeness of Islamic religious texts. Drawing upon pre-modern Islamic sources and debates, Abou El Fadl demonstrates the rigor and discipline required to appropriately analyze and construct contemporary Islamic legal discourses. He presents a methodology by which the authoritative is preserved and the authoritarian avoided.
About the Author: Prof. Abou El Fadl is an Islamic Jurist, Scholar and Professor of Islamic law at the law schoola at UCLA. He previously taught Islamic law at Yale Law School and Princeton University, University of Texas at Austin, and holds numerous degrees from Yale University, Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
