The following is a list of my writings pertaining to Islamic Economics, Finance and Banking.
In evaluating any of these works, Muslims should keep in mind that whatever they accept or reject should be in light of the Qur'an and the Sunnah. Also, Islam always assumes that people will use their reason and conscience in their pursuit of knowledge and understanding. If you find any error (information, reference, editorial, format or other) in any of these works, please do not hesitate to contact me. Also, it is only Islamic and professional that before jumping to any conclusion, if appropriate, seek clarification from the author on any relevant point or aspect.
Also, my writings in this area are based on my understanding about certain broad matters (hadith, ijma and qiyas). Thus, reading the following essays first would help better appreciate my perspective.
- Shari'ah, Laws and Islam: Legalism vs. Value-orientation
- Islamic Law and the Use and Abuse of Hadith
- The Doctrine of Ijma': Is there a consensus?
- Qiyas (Analogical Reasoning) and Some Problematic Issues in Islamic law
- Islamic Fiqh (Law) and the Neglected Empirical Foundation
