Pre-Canonical Islamic Legal Canons: An Analysis of Early Hanafi Literature

March 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

On Tuesday, March 8, 2022 at 12PM EST via Zoom, Prof. Issam Eido (Vanderbilt University) will present “Pre-Canonical Islamic Legal Canons: An Analysis of Early Hanafi Literature” as part of our Islamic Law Speaker Series. 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.
