About This Item

Cambridge University Press. Softcover. New. Among traditionally educated scholars in the Islamic world there is much disagreement on the crises that afflict modern Muslim societies and how best to deal with them, and the debates have grown more urgent since 9/11. Through an analysis of the work of Muhammad Rashid Rida and Yusuf al-Qaradawi in the Arab Middle East and a number of scholars belonging to the Deobandi orientation in colonial and contemporary South Asia, this book examines some of the most important issues facing the Muslim world since the late nineteenth century. These include the challenges to the binding claims of a long-established scholarly consensus, evolving conceptions of the common good, and discourses on religious education, the legal rights of women, social and economic justice and violence and terrorism. This wide-ranging study by a leading scholar provides the depth and the comparative perspective necessary for an understanding of the ferment that characterizes contemporary Islam. Contents 1. Introduction 2. Rethinking consensus 3. The language of Ijtihad 4. Contestations on the common good 5. Bridging traditions: madrasas and their internal critics 6. Women, law, and society 7. Socioeconomic justice 8. Denouncing violence: the ambiguities of a discourse 9. Epilogue: the paradoxes of internal criticism. Printed Pages: 371.
