Legal theory, or uṣūl al-fiqh, provides a general framework or methodology for the process of inferring Sharia rulings. It deals with the evidences that can be utilised and the linguistic and hermeneutical principles for interpreting the Qur’an and sunna. Students will engage in close reading of Muḥammad Riḍā al-Muẓaffar’s uṣūl al-fiqh. The course covers linguistic discussions, rational discussions, authority of evidence and procedural principles.
