In The Politics of Islamic Law, Iza Hussin compares India, Malaya, and Egypt during the British colonial period in order to trace the making and transformation of the contemporary category of ‘Islamic law.’ She demonstrates that not only is Islamic law not the shari’ah, its present institutional forms, substantive content, symbolic vocabulary, and relationship to state and society—in short, its politics—are built upon foundations laid during the colonial encounter. Drawing on extensive archival work in English, Arabic, and Malay—from court records to colonial and local papers to private letters and visual material—Hussin offers a view of politics in the colonial period as an iterative series of negotiations between local and colonial powers in multiple locations. She shows how this resulted in a paradox, centralizing Islamic law at the same time that it limited its reach to family and ritual matters, and produced a transformation in the Muslim state, providing the frame within which Islam is articulated today, setting the agenda for ongoing legislation and policy, and defining the limits of change. Combining a genealogy of law with a political analysis of its institutional dynamics, this book offers an up-close look at the ways in which global transformations are realized at the local level.

Some of the most exciting and innovative legal scholarship has been driven by historical curiosity. Legal history today comes in a fascinating array of shapes and sizes, from microhistory to global intellectual history. Legal history has expanded beyond traditional parochial boundaries to become increasingly international and comparative in scope and orientation. Drawing on scholarship from around the world, and representing a variety of methodological approaches, areas of expertise, and research agendas, this timely compendium takes stock of legal history and methodology and reflects on the various modes of the historical analysis of law, past, present, and future. Part I explores the relationship between legal history and other disciplinary perspectives including economic, philosophical, comparative, literary, and rhetorical analysis of law. Part II considers various approaches to legal history, including legal history as doctrinal, intellectual, or social history. Part III focuses on the interrelation between legal history and jurisprudence by investigating the role and conception of historical inquiry in various models, schools, and movements of legal thought. Part IV traces the place and pursuit of historical analysis in various legal systems and traditions across time, cultures, and space. Finally, Part V narrows the Handbooks focus to explore several examples of legal history in action, including its use in various legal doctrinal contexts.

Justice is considered the basic norm of human coexistence. Every legal order refers to the concept of justice, and Muslims also regard their religious norms (the Sharia) as offering just solutions to legal questions. But is the assumption that the Sharia is just merely an acceptance of a status quo correct? And is justice the necessary aim of the Sharia? In this volume, renowned scholars discuss these questions from different perspectives. In principle, the first normative source of Islam, the Qur'an, orders justice and fair conduct (Rohe). At the same time, an analysis of the concept of justice in the classical age of Islam (Ahmed and Poya) also shows that there existed ambivalent understandings of this concept. The relationship of the idea of justice in Islam to political questions (Ende), to war (Poya), and to modern reform (Mir-Hosseini) again confirms the importance of the concept for a critical reflection on traditional assumptions and existing circumstances. The discussion on the hijab in Western countries (Ladwig) shows paradigmatically how justice can regulate the relationship between the secular state and the Sharia. The essays in this volume endeavor to show that debates about justice, in Islam as well, express an underlying tension between the perception of an order as just on the one hand, and the feeling of injustice under the same order on the other. This discussion validates the idea that justice should be understood as a concept subject to a perpetual reexamination according to changing times and circumstances.

Debunking conventional narratives, Faiz Ahmed presents a vibrant account of the first Muslim-majority country to gain independence, codify its own laws, and ratify a constitution after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. Afghanistan, he shows, attracted thinkers eager to craft a modern state within the interpretive traditions of Islamic law and ethics.

Die meisten Kommentare und Untersuchungen zu den Johannesbriefen sehen sie in der Auseinandersetzung mit einer gnostischen Strömung. Demgegenüber – so wird gesagt – versuche der Autor, seine Adressatengemeinden zur Rechtgläubigkeit zu rufen, während die Gegner als Verführer und Antichristen bezeichnet werden. Der vorliegende Kommentar macht aber deutlich, dass es in den Johannesbriefen nicht um die Frage der Recht- oder Falschgläubigkeit geht. Dem Verfasser geht es um das eine Bekenntnis zu Jesus Christus, dessen Bejahung einen Christen von einem Nichtchristen unterscheidet. Die Gemeinden, die er am Ende des ersten Jahrhunderts im Blick hat, werden von staatlicher Seite massiv gefährdet und unter Druck genommen. Daraus resultiert eine Abwanderungsbewegung, der sich der Verfasser speziell des ersten Johannesbriefs entgegenstellt. Glaube ist deshalb für ihn nicht eine Satzwahrheit, sondern Ausdruck der ausschließlichen Bindung der eigenen Existenz an Jesus Christus. Das Bekenntnis zu Jesus vermittelt zugleich die Zugehörigkeit zur Bekenntnisgemeinschaft der »Kinder Gottes«. Nur denjenigen, die an diesem Bekenntnis trotz hoher Gefährdung festhalten und gegenüber der christlichen Gemeinde gegenüber solidarisch bleiben (»Bruderliebe« üben), ist das ewige Leben zugesagt. Das Bekenntnis zu Jesus Christus zielt also sowohl auf die Vergewisserung der eigenen Heilsorientierung – der gegenwärtigen Gefährdung zum Trotz – als auch auf die Abgrenzung nach außen. Eine innerchristliche Differenz ist im ersten Johannesbrief nicht im Blick.
