The Maqasid Centre

Share this:

The study of the philosophy of Islamic law, especially its maqāsid (objectives, purposes, goals, intents and underlying principles) is a pre-requisite to understanding the Qurʾān and the prophetic tradition, and to developing the Islamic law in a way that achieves common good for Muslims and protects them from harm. For that purpose, Al-Furqān Islamic Heritage Foundation established the Centre for the Study of the Philosophy of Islamic Law (Maqasid Centre). The founding seminar of the Centre took place between 1st and 3rd March 2005, in London, and included many distinguished scholars and dignitaries.
