Back to the source

“You see, there is no history of fiqh really, although there are many fatawa through the ages and through the times, some very significant ones. There real story is the story of fuqaha, it is a story of MEN. Now, if I may just tell you. I want to do this at length. We have to go on a long journey. If you miss it it will not go deep into your hearts. If we go back a thousand years from now. One of the great fuqaha of Granada and Ceuta of the murabitun was the very famous ‘alim, highly respected by everybody, called Qadi Iyad. Qadi Iyad is most famous for his book ash-Shifa, the most beautiful book on the Messenger, salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. However, Qadi Iyad as many of these great did, he wrote a book on the fiqh to get it back to the source. We do not have canon law, every case every case every case, like the romans do, we have institutional law, we have parameters”.
