Contents:
Public policy in Islam : a Maqasid approach Muslims and the dilemmas of governance The historical roots of Maqasid studies The challenges of founding a new discipline Human rights as the binding fabric of the Maqasid for governance Ethics of governance and public policy in Islam Public policy in Islam as a process of reform and renewal.
Summary: This work charts new territory in Islamic scholarship by attempting to address the field of public policy from a maqasid (higher objectives of the Shariah) perspective. Public Policy is an independent discipline from both law and politics. Thus, Public Policy in Islam is introduced here as a qualitatively different enterprise from both fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) and siyasah shar'iyyah (Shariah-oriented politics). The book deals with a number of critical topics that include methodology, governance, human rights, ethics, political power, and reform and renewal. It highlights how the maqasid approach is indispensable to the theory and practice of public policy in Islam, how it could resolve some of the most persistent governance dilemmas throughout Muslim history, but more significantly, how it forces a re-conceptualisation of the wealth of knowledge available in Islam s primary sources to introduce Public Policy in Islam to mainstream policy studies. https://www.amazon.com/Public-Policy-Beyond-Traditional-Jurisprudence/dp/1565643763/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=9781565643765&qid=1598971977&s=books&sr=1-1
