The book examines the various opinions on the maqāṣid and the need to take a middle way position in understanding the holy scriptures, an understanding that is built on objective and sound bases and principles. Dr. Mohamed Salim el-Awa, in this opening lecture for the Centre for the Study of the Philosophy of Islamic Law, discusses how the “middle way” school of thought can play a role in guiding and developing contemporary Islamic intellectual thought and assisting in its renewal. He also details the role of maqāṣid in renewing ijtihād based on a number of holistic principles of the religion.
