About the Book: The World of Fatwas: Or the Sharia in Action
Why are women 'the greatest affliction'? Why is slaughtering cows seen as a 'great Islamic act' when the Quran does not even mention it? Why must believers put down non-believers?
In this meticulously researched book, Arun Shourie looks at the social, religious and political contexts of fatwas down the ages. With a mountain of fatwas as his text, he shows us the Shariah in action; he unravels the history of fatwas, and the implications that a faithful, dogmatic adherence to these Islamic decrees holds for the 'believer'. And hence for the non-believers.
First published in 1995, this revised, up-to-date and expanded edition provides both Muslims and non-Muslims alike an even more clear-eyed look at the controversial world of fatwas.
