Contemporary Applications in Islamic Law

Contemporary Applications in Islamic Law by Mahomed Shoaib Omar deals with critical contemporary applications of the Shariah.


The different topics addressed in this book deal with critical contemporary applications of the Shariah. The writer has endeavoured to provide the essence and conclusions on each topic, derived from authentic classical sources , as elucidated, where appropriate, by reliable contemporary fiqh bodies, exercising through combined efforts , collective ijtihad (ijtihad jamai), such as the well known global Fiqh Academy, based in Jeddah, consisting of leading jurists. The detailed arabic references from the classical authorities, across the four schools (mazaaib), have been omitted to facilitate speedy ease of reading.This book represents an ongoing analysis by the writer of key contemporary, modern, new issues and their resolution from a Shariah perspective.

Our Testimonials

I personally know the honourable Shaykh Mahomed Shoaib Omar for over thirty years. I found him to be an ardent seeker of knowledge, quick of mind &  constantly devoted to the study of the books of fiqh &  has written himself a number of papers. He has been amongst the foremost participants in drafting the Muslim Personal Law for S.Africa, so that it may be enforced there; and the majority of local Ulama have endorsed this.
