Chapter Summary

This appendix presents a list of all the jurists and fuqahāʾ mentioned throughout this book; the list is arranged alphabetically. The author tried to identify each one of them as thoroughly as possible and in order to do so the author relied on the main sources available on jurists, namely bio-bibliographical dictionaries. The Miʿyār has also been used to ascertain where some jurists worked, in particular those from the Maghrib belonging to a later period and to whom al-Wansharisi refers in more detail. The Fihris aʿlām al-ashkhāṣ wa-l-qabāʾil wa-l-umam wa-l-Firaq of the thirteenth volume of the Miʿyār has been quite useful in this respect, although it contains some errors and is unfortunately incomplete.

Keywords: fuqahāʾ; jurists; Miʿyār
