KITAB IKHTILAF USULI'L MADHAHIB of QADI NU'MAN B. MUHAMMAD
KITAB IKHTILAF USULI'L MADHAHIB of QADI NU'MAN B. MUHAMMAD
Description
About the Book:

K. Ikhtilaf Usuli'l-Madhahib of Qadi Nu'man b. Muhammad is an important compilation of the middle of the fourth century, hijra, when the Islamic world was passing through a religio-political upheaval caused by the establishment of the Fatimid State in N. Africa. It was about this time that the political and legal theories were being provided with a definite and irreversible frameworks by the orthodox Islam, in the face of a strong challenge from the Fatimid contenders. The Risala of Imam Shafi'i is the first extant treatise giving us an insight into the state of the Islamic jurisprudence at the beginning of the third century hijra. The Ikhtilaf, appearing nearly 150 years after the Risala, helps us to comprehend the evolution of the principles of Islamic jurisprudence, usul, during the intervening period and know the contemporary state of the four sources of Islamic law and other allied notions. It gives a fair and faithful account of the views and theories held by different juristic schools at the time. The book provides a better understanding of the process that led to the formulation of the Islamic jurisprudence. It makes one realise, how much of human efforts and conflicts have gone into the making of what came to be accepted as the sources of Islamic law, sanctioned by religion.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
