FIELD OF RESEARCH
Chief interests: classical Islamic law, lawmaking in modern majority Muslim states, ḫilāf literature, Muslim legal reform, Muslim family law
My field of research is Islamic jurisprudence. During my previous studies, I’ve been most interested in the role Islamic law plays in the jurisprudence of majority-Muslim countries. As part of my PhD work, I’m studying the lawmaking of modern Near Eastern states, the classical works of the four great sunnī school of jurisprudence as well as their post-classical commentaries.
In my dissertation, I’m examining cases wherein the secular law of modern majority-Muslim countries diverges from the locally adopted maḏhabī legal tradition. In the legal systems of the countries I’m examining, only laws of personal status are directly based off šarīʿa manuals, so I’m primarily focusing on family law, namely, marriage and divorce law, inheritance law and laws regarding legal capacity.
