In this fascinating study, Daniel Brown traces the emergence of modern debates over sunna, focusing in particular on Egypt and Pakistan where these controversies have raged most fiercely, and assesses the implications of new approaches to the law on contemporary movements of Islamic revival.
Using the case of modern Islam as a starting-point, the author considers how adherents of any great tradition deal with change and explores the impact of modernity on attitudes towards religious authority generally. This important book makes a major contribution to the understanding of contemporary Islam, and will be of interest to scholars of the Middle East and South Asia, as well as to those specifically concerned with the teaching and implementation of Islamic law.
