Thirty Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence by Ayatollah Sayyid Fadhel Hosseini Milani recorded and edited by Amar Hegedus.
Islamic Jurisprudence plays a significant role in Muslim life, be it in regard to involvement in trade and business, family law or legal and illegal action. In short, Muslims search for clarification to ensure they fully meet their liabilities towards their Creator.
In the face of new and more complicated situations that are the result of scientific and technological advancement, the need for shari’ah clarity becomes ever more pressing.
As in every field of knowledge, it is only highly educated specialists who are in a position to provide clarity. Only those specialists in Islamic Jurisprudence who are capable of exercising ijtihad by way of their expertise and experience in utilizing its ‘tools’, are able to provide clarity regarding the matters mentioned above.
Sayyid Fadhel Milani, who for the last 35 years has researched, studied and applied the most common principles and tools used by mujtahids – one of the most complicated subjects of jurisprudence – is in the position of being able to access the reliable sources of shari’ah.
