Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Al-Māturīdī and the Development of Sunnī Theology in Samarqand presents the table of contents, preface, and a list of abbreviations. The book examines the Ḥanafite theology of Transoxania preceding al-Māturīdī's scholarly activity. It deals with a preliminary historical survey by a synchronic treatment of the religious environment that al-Māturīdī encountered in Samarqand during his lifetime, and the manner in which he came to distinguish himself from it. The book discusses al-Māturīdī's doctrine, which is presented from two vantage points. The first of the vantage points is a general overview of the theologian's ideas based on an analysis of the framework of the K. al-Tawḥīd; this will allow us to determine how al-Māturīdī systematized his thought and which external stimuli he responded to. The second approach focuses on specific theological questions and problems addressed by al-Māturīdī.

Keywords: Al-Māturīdī; Islam; religious environment; Smarqand; Sunnī theology
