The Dictionary of Maqāṣid Terms is considered one of the keys to an important discipline. It meets the need of Islamic law (sharī‘ah) students for explanations of the terms and expressions peculiar to the objectives of Islamic law (maqāṣid al-sharī‘ah). It clarifies the uniqueness and differences of words and terms that are common to a number of sciences and arts. Its benefit extends to enabling rapid, sound, and precise understanding of the components and specific attributes of knowledge, as well as saving time. This extensive tome fills a large gap that needed to be filled, and is a necessary constituent element of the maqāṣid framework. The terms in the dictionary are alphabetically-ordered, according to forms in use, or most common usage. The majority of terms relate to legal theory (uṣūl), while some are jurisprudential, and others theological. Some terms developed initially within the realm of maqāṣid and were expressions in that discipline, yet others were contemporary and recently-coined. The reader will find within this dictionary, a contribution bridging the gap within the fabric of knowledge. It offers rich, condensed content on maqāṣid terminology, and is an indispensable reference for students in the area of Islamic law (sharī‘ah) sciences and objectives.
