Chapter Summary

This chapter commences by briefly defining the concept of public property in Islamic classical societies and subsequently moves on to examine how pious endowments are incorporated within the same theoretical framework. Considering the role of the concept of the public in Islamic classical societies leads us to one of the main strands of recent scholarly debate on the nature of Andalusian social formation. Men of religion appear to be the social collective most closely linked to pious endowments, and the most benefited by them as well. The relation between the fiscal system and ḥubs properties is one of the most difficult issues to tackle due to, on the one hand, the intrinsic complexity of the subject itself and, on the other, the fact that the information available on the topic is particularly scarce.

Keywords: ḥubs properties; Andalusian social formation; fiscal system; Islamic classical societies; men of religion; pious endowments; public property
