The resurgence of Islam has generated a strong interest in understanding Islamic law. The challenges of new realities has impressed upon Muslims the need to rethink classical jurisprudence and a powerful contemporary ijtihad—the process of making a legal decision by independent interpretation of the legal sources -- has unleashed a tremendous intellectual energy that is transforming legal systems across the Muslim world. This book explores the limits and controversies of this development in the context of the diverse needs of Muslim cultures and communities living in Muslim and non-Muslim nations.
