(p.31) 1 Ibn Nujaym: The Father of Late Ḥanafism?
Law, Empire, and the Sultan

Samy A. Ayoub

Oxford University Press

This chapter starts with a discussion of Ibn Nujaym’s legal writings and his contributions to the late Ḥanafī tradition. It explores the characteristics, influences, and authority structure of late Ḥanafī scholarship as expressed in Ibn Nujaym’s works. The chapter examines how Ibn Nujaym relates late Ḥanafī authority and positions to the early opinions of the school. The chapter argues that his writings forged the backdrop against which later Ḥanafī works of the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries were articulated. As a consequence, Ibn Nujaym is a central figure in the crystallization of an Ottoman late Ḥanafī tradition.

Keywords:   late Ḥanafīs, juristic authority, conversion to Islam, endowments, women’s congregational prayers
