One of the most misunderstood aspects of Islamic legal practice and thought is the role and position of fatwas or legal opinions.
This three-volume reference work offers a comprehensive overview of and detailed insights into
- the concept of the fatwa as a vehicle of legal opinion-making in Islam
- its historical role in different parts of the Muslim world
- and contemporary debates reflecting both the fatwa's enduring relevance and its ongoing contestation among Muslims today.
