Description

ʿAbd al-Raḥmān b. ʿAmr al-Awzāʿī will offer the first comprehensive treatment of this important early Islamic figure. The book will present al-Awzāʿī’s biography, along with discussions of his role in the development of Islamic law, his influence on theology, and his political activities. This work will also examine al-Awzāʿī’s continuing influence on aspects of Islamic law, particularly in regard to the laws of war, and offer explanations for his relative obscurity in modern scholarship.
