About the book: In the Evolution of Fiqh (Islamic Law & the Madh-habs). The author very clearly presents a brief overview of the historical development of Islamic Law and its schools (the madh-habs). The book identifies the main reason for the appearance of the madh-habs and the factors leading to difference among them. For those to whom the madh-habs have been mystery, this aspect of the book will be extremely enlightening. Although the author sheds light on both the positive and negative roles of the madh-habs in the past, the main message of the book is to call the understanding of logistic differences (with an aim to remove them where possible), and a proposal for the unification of the madh-habs.
