This is the first work in the English Language to deal specifically with the subject of equality and fairness in Islamic Law. The Author relates these concepts to the Islamic legal notion of istihsan, thus taking them back to the origin in the Quran, the saying of the Prophet Muhammad and the era of the Companion of the Prophet in the first two centuries of Islam.
