In a 2 volume Hardcover Set. The book starts with a vivid introductory discourse on the origin of Muslim Law followed by a historical account of the great Prophet of Islam (PBUH), and traces the growth and development of the law and creation of the various sects though the ages. The principles for the most part have been derived from several Arabic books of paramount authority. Thus, for instance, the principle of the Law of Inheritance has been mainly drawn from the Sirajiyyah and Sharifiyah, the highest authority on the subject, and where they appeared deficient in any respect recourse was had from the Fatawa-i-Alamgiri, Durr-ul-Mukhtar and other works of unquestionable authority. The principles relating to the subjects have been primarily deducted from the Hidayah, the Fatawa i Alamgiri, Sharhul Viqayah, Jami ur Rumuz etc. Care has been taken to insert only such matter as is authentic and the principles, explanations and annotations are versions of passages form their Arabic books as translated by reputed translators.
In short, divorced as it is from the case law and interpretations made by modern writers, this compilation is a thesis on Islamic law as it existed in the original form and as such is a a useful guide for Research Scholar of Islamic Law.
