Maḥmūd Shalt=ut and Islamic Modernism


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the works of Maḥmūd Shaltūt relevant to the Islamic fiqh. During the 19th and 20th centuries, the development of fiqh was overtaken by the rapid pace of legal reforms and in many cases the Shari'a was displaced by Western-style codes of law. Despite this, Shaltūt did not confine his works on acts of worship and family laws and expanded his scope to cover the subjects of civil, criminal liability, and penal law. His legal works were always based on the framework of traditional Islamic jurisprudence.

Keywords:   Maḥmūd Shaltūt, fiqh, Shari'a, codes of law, Islamic jurisprudence, penal law, criminal liability, civil law
