This kind of knowledge may be found textually in the Book of God, or may be found generally among the people of Islam. The public relates it from the preceding public and ascribes it to the Apostle of God, nobody ever questioning its ascription or its binding force upon them. It is the kind of knowledge which admits of error neither in its narrative nor in its interpretation; it is not permissible to question it.

Whenever a sunna exists [in this case], it is of the kind related by few authorities, not by the public, and is subject to different interpretations arrived at by analogy. He asked: Is [legal knowledge on this kind as obligatory as the other, or is it not obligatory so that he who acquires such knowledge performs a supererogatory act, and he who neglects it falls not into error? Or, is there a third kind, derived from a narrative khabar or analogy? He asked: Will you explain it, give its source, and state what [portion] of it is obligatory, and on whom it is binding and on whom it is not binding?

But those who do obtain it should not all neglect it. If some can obtain it, the others are relieved of the duty [of obtaining it]; but those who do obtain it will be rewarded. He has made His merits evident by associating belief in His Apostle with the belief in Him. For God, Blessed and Most High, said:. God is only one God. Glory be to Him. His having a son is something alien to him [Q. IV, ]. The believers are only those who have believed in God and His Apostle, and who when they are with him on some common affair do not go away until they ask his permission [Q.

XXIV, 62]. Thus [God] prescribed that the perfect beginning of the faith, to which all other things are subordinate, shall be the belief in Him and then in His Apostle. For if a person believes only in Him, not in His Apostle, the name of the perfect faith will never apply to him until he believes in His Apostle together with Him.

For He said in His Book:. O our Lord, raise up amongst them an Apostle, one of selves, to recite to them Thy signs and to teach them the Book and Wisdom and to purify them. Verily Thou art All-mighty, All-wise [Q. II, ]. And also we have sent among you an Apostle, one of yourselves, to recite to you our signs, and purify you, to teach you the Book and the Wisdom, and to teach you what you did not know [Q. God bestowed a favor upon the believers when He raised up amongst them an Apostle, one of themselves, to recite His signs to them, to purify them and to teach them the Book, although they had formerly been in manifest error [Q.

III, ]. It is He who has raised up an Apostle among the untutored people, one of their number to recite to them His signs, to purify them, and to teach them the Book and the Wisdom, though formerly they had been in manifest error [Q. LXII, 2]. But remember the goodness which God has shown you and how much of the Book and the Wisdom He has sent down to you to admonish you thereby [Q. God has sent down to thee the Book and the Wisdom, and has taught thee what thou did not know before; the bounty of God towards thee is ever great [Q.

And call to mind the signs of God and the Wisdom which are recited in your houses; verily God is gentle, well-informed [Q. This is like what [God Himself] said; but God knows best!

So it is not permissible for Wisdom to be called here [anything] save the sunna of the Apostle of God. For [Wisdom] is closely linked to the Book of God, and God has imposed the duty of obedience to His Apostle, and imposed on men the obligation to obey his orders. So it is not permissible to regard anything as a duty save that set forth in the Quran and the sunna of His Apostle.

For [God], as we have [just] stated, prescribed that the belief in His Apostle shall be associated with the belief in Him. The sunna of the Apostle makes evident what God meant [in the text of His Book], indicating His general and particular [commands]. He associated the Wisdom [embodied] in the sunna with his Book, but made it subordinate [to the Book]. Never has God done this for any of His creatures save His Apostles. Close Menu Search Search.

Forthcoming Publications Thomas Merton Series. Product Description. Excerpt: On Legal Knowledge Someone asked me: What is [legal] knowledge and how much should men know of it? He asked: For example?

He asked: What is the second kind? And He said: The believers are only those who have believed in God and His Apostle, and who when they are with him on some common affair do not go away until they ask his permission [Q.

Anas told us from Hilal b. Yasar from Umar b. For He said in His Book: O our Lord, raise up amongst them an Apostle, one of selves, to recite to them Thy signs and to teach them the Book and Wisdom and to purify them.

And He, glorious be His praise, said: And also we have sent among you an Apostle, one of yourselves, to recite to you our signs, and purify you, to teach you the Book and the Wisdom, and to teach you what you did not know [Q.

Al-Shafii’s Risala

Islamic jurisprudence " is a seminal text on the principles of Islamic jurisprudence. In this work, al-Shafi'i is said to have outlined four sources of Islamic law , [1] [2] though this division based on four has been attributed to later commentators on the work rather than to Shafi'i himself. The above list of contents follows Khadduri's translation. However, Khadduri rearranged the treatise in two places. Khadduri's chapters 8 and 3 in that order both follow Shafi'i's chapter on Traditions in the original.
