Description

Addressing 100 key issues relevant to contemporary Muslims, this collection of Islamic legal opinions seeks to concentrate on the most controversial and divisive issues within Islamic life. Providing invaluable insight into the Islamic tradition, the Grand Mufti answers thousands of questions that have been posed to him over the years. Topics of discussion include, "What is the relationship between Islam and other religions? How can Muslims respond to the claim that women have been oppressed through Islam's system of inheritance? What is the Islamic view of democracy? "and "What are the main, touchstone books for each of the four schools of Sunni law?" Each fatwa attempts to clarify important concerns that pose difficulty for the Muslims of today, and the complex answers offer answers that can be utilized daily.
