On Islamic Law:
- In “Ijtihād Holds Supremacy in Islamic Law: Muslim Communities and the Evolution of Law” (Religions 13 (2022)), Abdulla Galadari (Khalifa University of Science and Technology, Abu Dhabi) argues that “it would not be unreasonable to argue that ‘ijtihād‘ has supremacy in Islamic law, giving some flexibility to Muslim communities in the evolution of such laws.”
- In “Maslahah Perspective on Husband Nusyuz in Islamic Law and Positive Law In Indonesia”
(Muqaranah 6 no. 1 (2022)), Jayusman Jayusman (Fakultas Syari’ah UIN Raden Intan Lampung) and others discuss the Qur’ānic concept of nusyuz or intra-familial disobedience.
- In “Situating an Informal Funds Transfer System in Islamic Legal Theory: The Origin of Hawala Revisited” (Darulfunun Ilahiyat 33, no. 1 (2022)), Ali Ekber Cinar (Istanbul University) challenges the contention that hawāla, an informal funds transfer system, has an Islamic origin.
On Islam and Data Science:
- In “The performance of Islamic versus conventional stocks during the COVID-19 shock: Evidence from firm-level data” (Research in International Business and Finance 60 (2022)), Falik Shear (Faisalabad Business School, National Textile University, Faisalabad, Pakistan) and Badar Nadeem Ashraf (School of Finance, Jiangxi University of Finance and Economics, Nanchang, 330013, China) “compare the performance of Shariah compliant equities with their non-Shariah compliant counterparts especially during the Covid-19 shock.”
