Islamic Law Speaker Series: Prof. Issam Eido, Program in Islamic Law, March 8, 2022 @ 12:00 pm
March 8, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for the Program in Islamic Law’s Islamic Law Speaker Series! Prof. Issam Eido (Vanderbilt University) will present “Pre-Canonical Islamic Legal Canons: An Analysis of Early Hanafi Literature.” Eido will attempt to trace the legal canons that were used in early Hanafi sources, beginning with Muḥammad ibn al-Ḥasan al-Shaybānī’s (d. 189/805) works and ending with Abū Zayd al-Dabūsī’s (d. 430/1038) works. These canons, throughout their evolution, have been exposed to multiple procedures among them are adjusting, polishing, changing, or creating a new canon. The talk will explore these shifts with some examples. This event will be moderated by PIL Research Fellow, Dr. Hedayat Heikal.
