Shari'a Law and the Modern Nation State: A Malaysian Symposium

by Norani Othman (ed)

Condition: Very Good

Kuala Lumpur: Sisters in Islam, 1994. First edition. Paperback. Very Good. This is a collection of papers presented at a symposium of Muslim social activists in Kuala Lumpur in 1992 to attempt to grapple with the question of how should an Islamic state be run. While the Prophet Muhammad experimented with a model that recognised the needs of both Muslims and non-Muslims, the less flexible model of the 'Western state' has today tended sideline the openness of early Muslims. In addition there are big differences in time and context between the Medina city state and where Muslims find themselves today. 160 pages with an index. Weight: 0.5kg. Post free within Malaysia The cover has a bit of wear with a nick at the base of the front cover and a crease on one corner of the back cover. The binding is tight and the text clear with no tanning throughout.
