Islamic theology, philosophy and law : debating Ibn Taymiyya and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya by Alina Kokoschka( )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume sheds new light on central themes of Ibn Taymiyya's (661/1263-728/1328) and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya's (691/1292-751/1350) thought and the relevance of their ideas to diverse Muslim societies. Investigating their positions in Islamic theology, philosophy and law, the contributions discuss a wide range of subjects, e.g. law and order; the divine compulsion of human beings; the eternity of eschatological punishment; the treatment of Sufi terminology; and the proper Islamic attitude towards Christianity. Notably, a section of the book is dedicated to analyzing Ibn Taymiyya's struggle for and against reason as well as his image as a philosopher in contemporary Islamic thought. Several articles present the influential legacy of both thinkers in shaping an Islamic discourse facing the challenges of modernity."--The publisher
Sport Across Asia by Katrin Bromber( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed to reflect both our current knowledge regarding sport, globalisation and '""encounters"" with several important ""post-colonial"" or non-western societies and to draw together scholars from a range of different disciplines. Case studies of cultural encounters in Central, South-East Asia, Asia Minor and the Arabian peninsula capture the paradoxical processes of emulation, resistance and transformation that are at work in the diffusion and development of ""sport"" and body cultures. These case studies bring together insights from anthropology, cultural studies, geography

Hierarchie der Rechtsquellen im tradierten sunnitischen Islam by Birgit Krawietz( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in German and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die vorliegende Arbeit ist die erste umfassende Untersuchung in deutscher Sprache, die sich der sunnitisch-islamischen juristischen Methodik und Rechtsquellenlehre in systematischer Absicht zuwendet. Der Verfasserin geht es darum, normative Systemzusammenhänge und Charakteristika islamischer Rechtsquellenlehren herauszuarbeiten, so wie sie sich für arabischsprachige muslimische Autoren und Adressaten heutzutage üblicherweise darstellen, auch wenn diese $ade facto$z unterschiedlichen Rechtsordnungen angehören. Zwar darf islamisches Recht nicht mit dem Recht islamischer Staaten verwechselt werden, doch ist die Scharia in islamischen Ländern und vielen arabischen Staaten Ausgangspunkt, Grundlage und Maßstab der Beurteilung. Als solche beansprucht sie auch zukünftige Geltung. -- Die Autorin rekonstruiert die Entwicklung des islamischen Rechts von den Anfängen bis zur Gegenwart. Sie folgt dabei den Eigendeutungen und den (Selbst- ) Periodisierungen des tradierten wie des zeitgenössischen Rechtsdenkens aus der Binnenperspektive des islamischen Rechtssystems. Der begriffliche Rahmen und das von ihr entwickelte Verfahren gestatten ihr einen hinreichend weiten wie detaillierten Blick auf das Gesamtgefüge approbierter Rechtsquellen. Im Zentrum stehen dabei vor allem diejenigen Rechtsquellenlehren, die einem tradierten Verständnis folgen. Diese Orientierung am Mainstream zeitgenössischen islamischen Rechtsdenkens schließt jedoch gewisse Neuerungen nicht aus. Insgesamt zeigt die vorgestellte Literatur einen hohen Grad an Reflektiertheit und Flexibilität. -- Zu den Zielen dieser Untersuchung gehört es auch, dem unter westlichen Betrachtern verbreiteten Zerrbild einer vermeintlich apodiktischen, wenig differenzierungsfähigen Scharia und ihrer Jurisprudenz zu begegnen, das nun wirklich nicht der Wahrheit entspricht. So kann sie u. a. zu dem Ergebnis gelangen, daß es im Bereich der juristischen Methodik, $aformal$z gesehen, mehr Gemeinsamkeiten mit der westlichen Jurisprudenz gibt, als gemeinhin angenommen wird. Dies gilt auch eingedenk der Tatsache, daß zwischen islamischem und westlichem Recht, $arechtsinhaltlich$z betrachtet, vielfach radikale Unterschiede bestehen, die man in Rechnung zu stellen hat
Ways of Knowing Muslim Cultures and Societies : Studies in Honour of Gudrun Krämer by Bettina Gräf( )

2 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume showcases a variety of innovative approaches to the study of Muslim societies and cultures, inspired by and honouring Gudrun Krämer and her role in transforming the landscape of Islamic Studies. With contributions from scholars from around the world, the articles cover an extraordinarily wide geographical scope across a broad timeline, with transdisciplinary perspectives and a historically informed focus on contemporary phenomena. The wide-ranging subjects covered include among others a "men in headscarves" campaign in Iran, an Islamic call-in radio programme in Mombassa, a refugee-related court case in Berlin, the Arab revolutions and aftermath from various theoretical perspectives, Ottoman family photos, Qurʼān translation in South Asia, and words that can't be read
The heritage of Edirne in Ottoman and Turkish times : continuities, disruptions and reconnections by Connectivities and Imaginative Attraction of a Turkish Border-City in Europe Captivating Edirne. Resources( )

9 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern scholarship has not given Edirne the attention it deserves regarding its significance as one of the capitals of the Ottoman Empire. This edited volume offers a reinterpretation of Edirne's history from Early Ottoman times to recent periods of the Turkish Republic. Presently, disconnections and discontinuities introduced by the transition from empire to nation state still characterize the image of the city and the historiography about it. In contrast, this volume examines how the city engages in the forming, deflecting and creative appropriation of its heritage, a process that has turned Edirne into a UNESCO heritage hotspot. A closer historical analysis demonstrates the dissonances and contradictions that these different interpretations and uses of heritage produce. From the beginning, Edirne was shaped by its connectivity and relationality to other places, above all to Istanbul. This perspective is employed at many different levels, e.g., with regard to its population, institutions, architecture, infrastructures and popular culture, but also regarding the imaginations Edirne triggered. In sum, this multi-disciplinary volume boosts urban history beyond Istanbul and offers new insight into Ottoman and Turkish connectivities from the vantage point of certain key moments of Edirne's history

Under construction : logics of urbanism in the Gulf Region by Steffen Wippel( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interdisciplinary in approach, this volume explores and deciphers the symbolic value and iconicity of the built environment in the Arab Gulf Region, its aesthetics, language and performative characteristics. Bringing together a range of studies by artists, curators and scholars, it demonstrates how Dubai appeared - at least until the financial crisis - to be leading the construction race and has already completed a large number of its landmark architecture and strategic facilities. In contrast, cities like the Qatari capital Doha still appear to be heavily 'under construction' and in countries like the Sultanate of Oman, ultra-luxury tourism projects were started only recently. While the construction of artificial islands, theme parks and prestige sport facilities has attracted considerable attention, much less is known about the region's widespread implementation of innovative infrastructure such as global container ports, free zones, inter-island causeways and metro lines. This volume argues that these endeavours are not simply part of a strategy to prepare for the post-oil era for future economic survival and prosperity in the Lower Gulf region, but that they are also aiming to strengthen identitarian patterns and specific national brands. In doing so, they exhibit similar, yet remarkably diverse modes of engaging with certain global trends and present - questionably - distinct ideas for putting themselves on the global map. Each country aims to grab attention with regard to the world-wide flow of goods and capital and thus provide its own citizens with a socially acceptable trajectory for the future. By doing that, the countries in the Gulf are articulating a new semiotic and paradigm of urban development. For the first time, this volume maps these trends in their relation to architecture and infrastructure, in particular by treating them as semiotics in their own right. It suggests that recent developments in this region of the world not only represent a showcase of extraordinary initiatives by which these desert states have transformed, but also that the commodification of local 'traditions' acts as an essential element in the countries' effort to design an Arab version of (hyper- )modernity and to position themselves as a regional and global archetype, which has frequently been adopted elsewhere
The jurist and the theologian : speculative theology in Shafiʻi legal theory by Mohamed Abdelrahman Eissa( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This in-depth study examines the relation between legal theory (usūl al-fiqh) and speculative theology ('īlm al-kalām). It compares the legal theory of four classical jurists who belonged to the same school of law, the Shāfi?ī school, yet followed three different theological traditions. The aim of this comparison is to understand to what extent, and in what way, the theology of each jurist shaped his choices in legal theory."
Nahrungsmittel in der Arabischen Medizin : das Kitāb al-Aġd̲iya wa-l-ašriba des Naǧib ad-Dīn as-Samarqandī by Muḥammad ibn ʻAlī Najīb al-Dīn al-Samarqandī( )

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Najīb ad-Dīn as-Samarqandī's (d. 619/1222) Book on Foods and Drinks (Kitāb al-Aghd̲iya wa-l-ashriba) is a comprehensive medical encyclopedia with information on more than 500 different food items, dishes, drinks and fragrances. It can be considered to be the last major Arabic monograph on dietetics in the Islamic East and it probably rates among the most widespread premodern Arabic books on the subject of nutrition science. In Nahrungsmittel in der arabischen Medizin, Juliane Müller presents a critical edition of the Kitāb al-Aghd̲iya wa-l-ashriba along with a German translation of the text. An extensive contextual study locates the book and its dietetic contents within Arabic medical literature and examines the sources and the reception of as-Samarqandī's food encyclopedia"--
