The original juristic tradition was formulated and fixed during the first three Islamic centuries, a time of widespread sociopolitical turmoil. Of course, the jurists’ legal outlooks and thinking processes could not have escaped this reality. While Muslims of the prophetic and râshidûn periods adhered closely to the authentic texts due to their sincerity, piety, prophetic training, and proximity to the revelation, the changing environment in which their descendants functioned gradually started to impact how the authentic texts were understood, interpreted, paraphrased, and implemented. Both the Muslim and the non-Muslim worlds have drastically changed since that time. The new geopolitical and scientific realities of our rapidly changing world demand a fresh look at some aspects of the established juristic tradition.
The way forward involves a systematic fresh look at and reevaluation of the old fatwas, as well as the issuance of new ones with a maqâsidî outlook that can deal successfully with today’s ever-changing global realities. In this edited volume, papers on fatwa and iftâ’ point to an approach that is both rooted in the Islamic legacy and committed to meeting the challenges of the modern world.
