The study of the philosophy of Islamic law, especially its maqasid (objectives,
purposes, goals, intents and underlying principles) is a pre-requisite to
understanding the Quran and the prophetic tradition, and to developing the
Islamic law in a way that achieves common good for Muslims and protects them
Al-Furqan supports the publication of monographs and studies which specialise in the understanding of the Islamic law through al-maqasid.
