Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the case studies, including those that belong strictly to the ritualistic part of Islamic law, which have a clear social dimension. This makes possible drawing conclusions about the concerns that may have underlined various views thereon, as well as putting to the test some of the conclusions about Dāwūd and his Ẓāhirism and how it compares with the juridical thought of both the Ahl al-Raʾy and the Ahl al-Ḥadīth. In the first two case studies("Touching" Women and Men's Ritual Purity, and Breastfeeding and Foster Relationships) the evidence that could have been available to jurists starting from the second half of the 2nd century AH is presented. This includes Qurʾanic verses as well as Prophetic traditions and non-Prophetic reports. The chapter also presents short case studies such as the status of Imraʾat al-Mafqūd, Ṭalāq al-Sakrān, and Al-Luqaṭah.

Keywords: Ṭalāq al-Sakrān; Ẓāhirism; Al-Luqaṭah; Dāwūd; foster relationships; Imraʾat al-Mafqūd; Islamic law; Prophetic traditions; Qurʾanic verses; ritual purity
