The Sources of Islamic Law

Islamic Theories of Abrogation

John Burton

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Islamic law never achieved unity but developed into five surviving schools, which, when first established, were in competition with one another. This scholarly book is the first to examine critically the differing Islamic theories of abrogation (or Naskh) upon which each school based its claim to be the correct interpretation.
