Chapter Summary

This preliminary material presents the contents section of the book The Spiritual Background of Early Islam: Studies in Ancient Arab Concepts. A preface and an introduction by Andrew Rippin are provided here. The book comprises essays that find their place as essential elements in the unfolding of scholarship on the emergence of Islam. The author's treatment of the concept of the sunnah is clearly one where his contribution remains a vital part of the discussion that started with Ignáz Goldziher and Joseph Schacht, and is continued today by Gautier Juynboll and Harald Motzki.

Keywords: Ancient Arab concepts; Islam; sunnah
