ARABIC TRANSLATION of Occasional Paper No. 15

THE ISLAMIC VISION OF DEVELOPMENT IN THE LIGHT OF MAQASID AL-SHARIAH


Original English edition by Mohammad Umer Chapra


English edition description:
In this paper Dr. Chapra explores the Islamic vision of development in relation to maqasid al-shariah maintaining that Islam has emphasised all the ingredients of human wellbeing, including the human self, faith, intellect, posterity as well as wealth for society to flourish. Dr. Chapra also concludes that economic development may only result in growth in the short term, but in the long term will lead to increased inequities, family disintegration, juvenille delinquency, and social unrest.

MAQASID AL-SHARIAH A BEGINNER'S GUIDE

Original English edition by Jasser Auda


English edition description:
There is a lack of consideration and functionality of the overall purposes and underlying principles of Islamic law as a whole. These misapplications lead to a lack of spirituality, intolerance violent ideologies, supressed freedoms, and authoritarianism. Thus, a maqasid approach takes juridical issues to a higher philosophical ground, and encourages a much-need culture of conciliation and peaceful coexistence.

MAQASID AL-SHARIAH MADE SIMPLE

Original English edition by Mohammad Hashim Kamali


English edition description:
This paper focuses on a general characterisation of maqasid al-shari'ah and its origin in the Qur'an; the classification of maqasid; historical developments and the contributions of some of the leading 'ulama' to the theory of maqasid; the differential approaches the 'ulama' have taken toward the identification of maqasid; and finally the relevance of maqasid to ijtihad and the ways in which maqasid can enhance the scope and calibre of ijtihad.
