Wael Hallaq’s Rejoinder to Shaykh Nadwi’s Review of Origins and Evolution of Islamic Law

The author of the book Origins and Evolution of Islamic Law, Dr. Wael Hallaq, responded to Dr. Nadwi’s critical review of his book (that was posted earlier on this site).

We have attached the rejoinder that JIS made an exception to publish, in the words of Ml. Nadwi, bowing down to the pressure from certain academic quarters.

In comparison to the actual review, the worth of this rejoinder will immediately become evident.

One thought on “Wael Hallaq’s Rejoinder to Shaykh Nadwi’s Review of Origins and Evolution of Islamic Law

  1. Have you actually read both the review and the response? Hallaq destroyed Nadwi’s review to the point that it seems very much possible that Nadwi didn’t even read the book before doing a review of it.
    I think that very much calls into question both Nadwi’s academic integrity and ability.
