Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses in detail the differences in interpretation, of the various schools, of the terms of Islamic jurisprudence pertaining to various aspects of daily living. Islamic law prohibits usury in six commodities. The Muslim canonists among the proponents of the interpretation vulgata holding different views on this word yauduna all agreed on the general meaning of the Koranic quotation. Musaqat indicates in Islamic agricultural affairs a contract falling under the jurisdiction of social contracts. zakat al-fitr is also discussed by the author. The question of whether a Muslim is permitted to eat meals prepared by followers of other faiths has occupied Muslim theologians on numerous occasions; like for other matters, for this aspect too the author presents the various differing viewpoints. Difference in interpretation of wudu and ghusl are also discussed.
