With the intense interest in the Middle East, and particularly with the western fascination with Islam and the rules that govern it, Shukri’s book continues to demand attention. Concerned that many western-hemisphere individuals did not understand the teachings of Islam, he undertook the task of introducing Islamic teachings on marriage and divorce in this little book. Shukri begins with a discussion of jurisprudence in the Muslim view, which he divides into four schools: Hanifite, Malikite, Shafi’ite, and Hanbalite. His discussion continues to the legal view of marriage and impediments to marriage, including consanguinity and difference of religion. The issue of equality appears in six points of equality between husband and wife. Marriage contracts, duties of both parties, and authority within marriage are addressed. The general principles of divorce, including mutual consent and judicial decree round out the discussion.

Ahmed Shukri (b. 1892) was a student of law. He earned his Ph.D. at Columbia University. This is his only book.

The Jurist and the Theologian

Speculative Theology in Shāfiʿī Legal Theory
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0618-5
This in-depth study examines the relation between legal theory (uṣūl al-fiqh) and speculative theology (ʿīlm al-kalām). It compares the legal theory of four classical jurists who belonged to the same school of law, the Shāfiʿī school, yet followed three different theological traditions. The aim of this comparison is to understand to what extent, and in what way, the theology of each jurist shaped his choices in legal theory.
