Understanding Islamic Law

Understanding Islamic Law

Understanding Islamic Law (Shari'a) is the first comprehensive textbook and treatise on Islamic law written by an American law professor for the English-speaking market. Written by Raj Bhala, Rice Distinguished Professor at the University of Kansas, School of Law, the book is the first to systematically compare and contrast Islamic law with American law and Christian teaching. Even as legislatures in 20 states consider more than 40 bills that would ban or restrict the use of Shari'a in their courts, global practitioners are no longer immune from the influences of Islamic law.
