It is designed to prepare the jurist for the task of the mujtahid, the independent jurist, who derives the law and lays down precedents to be followed by the judge in the administration of justice. In this manual Ibn Rushd traces most of the issues of Islamic law, describing not only what the law is, but also elaborating the methodology of some of the greatest legal minds in Islam to show how such laws were derived.

This text provides a still-relevant basis for the interpretation and formulation of Islamic law. Combining his legal and philosophical knowledge, Ibn Rushd transcends the boundaries of different schools and presents a critical analysis of the opinions of the famous Muslim jurists and their methodologies. The legal subject areas covered include marriage and divorce; sale and exchange of goods; wages, crop-sharing and speculative partnership; security for debts and insolvency; gifts, bequests and inheritance; and offences and judgements.

Please try again later. Even if you have several books of Islamic law, this mujtqhid is extremely valuable for two main reasons. First, it outlines the positions of the major schools and the sources and reasoning they use to arrive at those positions. Second, and more importantly, Ibn Rushd Averroes to most of his European admirers explains the divergence of views among the schools on the basis of the different methodologies they employ on a particular issue; or the different weight they might mujtahir to two apparently conflicting verses or mujtayid or their different judgements about abrogation or the relative authority of Qur’an and Sunnah.

Because of this, both Muslims and students of Islam are able to grasp how Muslim law is not simply reducible to a code but remains an ongoing conversation even an argument about how God wants us to act.

The translation is excellent and the production of the book is of very good quality. The work is available in two volumes or one. One volume is obviously cheaper, but I would recommend the two-volume version because of the size. I would like to thank all individuals who financially and intellectually contributed into the translation and publication of this book for the benefit of those who does not know Arabic. Their differed opinions on some issues or any combination of them.

It is not just the difference but most importantly he clarifies why they differed on certain issues and what was their reasonings. Some time he inserts his own opinion. In this book you see how an imam’s mind works with the principals of Qura’an, tradition and logic.

Perfect book to ponder about.

I hope second volume will follow soon. Recommend to all persons who are bidaywt in the Islamic Legal history. Excellent Jurisprudence book to understand the contributions of Muslim Jurists and Scholars. This author is famously known in the West as “Averroes” has contributed to much of the intellectual thought that ignited the Industrial Revolution. Highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to think out of the box.

This helped me so much in my third year. Definitely see myself using it after I finish inshaAllah, too. Bidaytul Mujtahid is a text studied by all major students of knowledge, jurists, and those interested in Islamic Law. The translation is mujtahd understood. However, I must state that I personally read the arabic along with the first and second volumes, and found many times the translator leaving out quoted opinions from Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal and others.


This is not a huge blunder, but it is leaving out a primary source of knowledge; the scholars. I am not sure if manuscripts disagree or? Overall the book is awesome and a great resource for students of fiqh. This is a very important English work on Islamic Fiqh Jurisprudence. Any serious student of Shari’ah studying in English should have volumes 1 and 2.

This is dense material. Be sure you have general knowledge of one school of thought before delving in or you will get confused. It is a summary of opinions, but remember that Ibn Rushd sometimes speaks of other madhabs and is not an expert in other madhabs. Ibn Rushd was also influenced by philosophers. See all 8 reviews.
