Description

Islamic law never achieved unity but developed into five surviving schools, which, when first established, were in competition with one another. This scholarly book is the first to examine critically the differing Islamic theories of abrogation (or Naskh) upon which each school based its claim to be the correct interpretation.show more

Review quote

Nine chapters make up this detailed, well-dcumented study ... Burton's arguments make a great deal of sense and add a good measure of additional proof to general contemporary understandings of the emergence of Muslim law.
