About this title


The importance of language and its use in legal reasoning in Islamic law is explored in this legal text. Covering such topics as linguistic principles and legal rulings, the clarity and ambiguity of linguistic terms, the general and specific qualities of words, and the ambiguity and clarity of selected terms, this linguistic study places the discussion of Islamic language and law into its context, introducing fundamental principles of Islamic jurisprudence and its development, branches, importance, and relationship with the other Islamic sciences. Readers will learn about the tools developed by Islamic scholars in making the law, the methods used in Islamic legislation, and the sources of Islamic law.
