Islamic Law in Malaya by Prof. Ahmad Ibrahim / edited by Shirle Gordon (1975)

RM51.00

About

Much has been written on Islamic Law, as law per se, and it is varied and applied in particular countries of Africa, the Middle East, and Indonesia, but nothing had been written on Islamic Law in Malaya. Yet, one could not assume that the Malay would exclusively apply Shafi’i Islamic doctrine when, organic to his life reality, a totality of Customary Law or ‘Adat had evolved.

This work is a major contribution, not only to our knowledge of the Malays as Muslims but to our knowledge of how a society can contain and assimilate apparently contradictory systems.
