The Status of Women Under Islamic Law: And Under Modern Islamic Legislation
This book is the first comprehensive examination of the new codes of the major states of the Gulf region. It examines the historical roots & systemization of the theory of contracts according to the classical law of Islam, & charts the dichotomy between the legal theory & practice. The influence of the divine sources of the law, eclectic sources & legal methodologies on the system of contracts is assessed, as is the way in which more rigid, established laws have either resisted or been accommodated to adjust to social changes. Modern legislation in Bahrain, Kuwait & the United Arab Emirates is examined. This work emphasises the continuing importance of Islamic contractual precepts within modern codification of the Arab Gulf States & will be of equal enduring value to commercial & legal practitioners as well as scholars & students of Middle East Law.
