Encyclopaedia of Islamic Law is a significant contribution in the field of Islamic jurisprudence. Islam is significant and distinguished among all religions. It is the first and foremost faith on earth. It talks not only of praying and fasting but also guides whole of the mankind how to lead a happy and prosperous life, here and hereafter. Not a single walk of life is spared, which does not find mention in the Glorious Book of Quran. From the day first down to the present hour, men of exceptional qualities came in this world, who held the banner of Islam high and promoted the cause thereof, professedly and professionally.
As an ideal faith and perfect system, Islam, however, goes a step ahead here, too. Islam advocates love for the whole mankind, devotion and dedication to the Almighty. Further, it also enjoins upon a believer to have interaction with society, he lives in. It means, renunciation and solitude is not favoured by Islam. That's why celibacy is also condemned in Islam. Similarly, service to mankind, dissemination of knowledge, promotion of love for every creature, regard for elders, affection for the kids, etc. are some of the salient features of Islam.
Islam is different, it is not only a religion but also a complete code of life. Its do's and don'ts are based on scientific reasons. It is a different matter that science has not yet, unearthed all secrets and the search is still on. Laws and directives, covering social, economic, political, familial and educational life are all as per the needs of human beings. Be it distribution of wealth and property, matters of marriage, issue of human rights all find tacit and clear-cut mention in the Holy Quran and Holy Hadith, the original sources of Islam.
Islamic law is but the injunctions laid down by the Holy Quran. Besides Quran, traditions of the Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) are the second source of Islamic law, which address every aspect of human life. Encyclopaedia of Islamic Law is the most authentic source of knowledge, which has been prepared with painstaking efforts. A ready reference for every scholar as well as general readers, it covers a variety of issues - common and specific - in its fold without an iota of doubt."
