Cases in the Muhammadan Law of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh

Tahir Mahmood (Editor)
Synopsis This book, originally published in 1965, was written by Fyzee as a companion volume to his erudite and authoritative Outlines of Muhammadan Law. Since then it has been a source book for the Indo-Anglican interpretation of Muslim law. This long awaited revised edition makes available in one volume the original forty-three cases along with the author's commentary and extracts from judgements, as well as ninety-three new cases relating to significant developments since its original publication. The themes covered in the original edition have now been extensively revised and updated. New judicial rulings from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh have been added to all of its nineteen chapters. The only book of its kind, it is a treasure house of old and new rulings. It provides an incomparable view of contemporary Muslim law, as it is being applied in the three countries within the parameters of their constitutions and under their systems of judicial administration. The revising editor, Professor Tahir Mahmood, who is among the foremost living authorities on Islamic law today, has chosen to adhere strictly to the original scheme of the book and has made no additions to the basic text. The material contributed by him is contained in separate sections placed conveniently at the end of the relevant chapters. The subjects covered include the interpretation of texts, customary law, dissolution of marriage, paternity and legitimacy, guardianship, gifts, life interests, wakfs, wills, inheritance, pre-emption, and mosques. This book will be invaluable for students, scholars, and practitioners of Islamic law.
