Prof. Ebrahim Moosa has written a thoughtful article on Imam Ghazali’s legal thought and it can be found here. This is a cause for celebration as this is a field that is hardly treated by those who study Imam Ghazali in the west. So it represents an important milestone in Ghazalian studies. Imam Ghazali’s legal theories are well studied in Arabic and especially practical laws (fiqh) in his school of law namely Shafi’i fiqh.
A blog on things Ghazalian and intellectual history of the premodern era. I am interested in intellectual history and how knowledge furthered the progression of humanity in the pre-modern era. My emphasis is on philosophy, though I digress into medieval history at the drop of a hat. l.
