FIELD OF STUDY
Interests: modern and classical Islamic jurisprudence, iḫtilāf-literature, Muslim legal reforms, personal status laws
My area of research is Islamic jurisprudence. I’m most interested in the impact of Islamic law on the lawmaking of contemporary majority-Muslim states, with a particular attention to Arabic speaking countries. For my work, I study the legislations of modern Near Eastern states, the classical literature of the four extant Sunni schools of jurisprudence as well as post-classical commentaries from the 17th-19th century AD.
In my doctoral thesis, I intend to examine the reasons and extent to which modern Muslim legislators chose to depart from regionally established legal traditions. Since laws pertaining to personal status are almost invariably based on Islamic law in Arabic speaking countries, I will be focusing my research on marriage and divorce law, inheritance law and the concept of legal capacity.
