Thank you, Issam Eido, for joining us as guest blog editor in November. In case you missed Prof. Eido’s essays on Ḥanafī criteria for using ḥadīth in the ‘courts and canons’ of early Islamic law, here they are:
- Lived or Non-Lived Ḥadīth? Content vs. Narrator Criteria in Early Ḥanafī Law
- Early Ḥanafī Jurists, Court Practice, and the Authority of General Afflictions (ʿUmūm al-Balwā)
- Canons: Specific and General aṣl
- Tools for Interpreting Ḥadīth in Shaybānī’s Ḥujja
Thank you! Follow Professor Eido’s scholarly work on his faculty webpage.
