Islamic Law Scholars’ Round-Up: Apr 15

Rutgers–Camden Magazine recently featured an interview with Prof. Adnan Zulfiqar. The interview discusses his article in the West Virginia Law Review on “Jurisdiction over Jihād: Islamic Law and the Duty to Fight.” In the interview, Adnan recommends that policymakers in Muslim-majority countries

take back control of the jihad narrative. They need to start articulating jihad in its collective form [such as military service regulated by the government]. Don’t run from the term jihad just because it’s being abused and misused in the context of terrorism.

The interview also highlights Adnan’s new course at Rutgers on “Islamic Law: Theory and Practice.”
