A reader’s guide to al-Shāfiʿī’s Epistle on Legal Theory (al-Risāla)

Vishanoff, David R.

al-Shāfiʿī’s famous Epistle on Legal Theory (al-Risāla) has long been hailed as formative for the discipline of Islamic legal theory (uṣūl al-fiqh), but its structure and the wording of some of its most important passages remain a puzzle. This essay is intended as an aide for the study of the Risāla’s Arabic text. It surveys scholarly disagreements about the work’s significance and structure, and ... more

The Islamic penalty for adultery in the third century AH and al-Shāfiʿī's Risāla

Pavlovič, Pavel Veselinov, 1968‒

At the end of the second century ah al-Shāfiʿī (d. 204/820) advocated stoning as the sole penalty for adultery instead of an earlier rule that combined flogging with stoning. Al-Shāfiʿī's innovative doctrine was barely noticed by the jurisprudents, exegetes and ḥadīth collectors during the first half of the third century ah, but apparently provoked a legal debate shortly thereafter.

Uṣūl al-Fiqh and Shāfiʿī’s Risāla revisited

Hallaq, Wael B., 1955‒

In an article published in 1993, I argued that Muḥammad Ibn Idrīs al-Shāfiʿī (d. 204/820) was not, as commonly thought, the architect of uṣūl al-fiqh and that this discipline emerged only after the main battles over what became the Sunnite sources of the law were won. I had dated the emergence of writings on uṣūl al-fiqh to the last part of the third/ninth century and the first half of the fourth/... more
