remains as valid today as when it first appeared.
“Fiqh for Minorities” is an important subject and a much needed
contribution to an area of fiqh that has become essentialfor the well
being and development of Muslim communities living in non-
Muslim lands. Previous attempts to deal with the many serious issues
facing these communities failed to take into consideration the views
and contributions of Muslim social scientists who live in the West,
speak its languages and have a comprehensive understanding of its
social, political, religious and economic systems. As a result, many of
the recommendations and fatwas that came to be issued were inade-
quate and in some cases complicated the issues under consideration.
Dr. Alalwani’s recommendation that existing fiqh councils should
work closely with associations of Muslim social scientists and
involve these scientists on an equal footing with Shari¢ah scholars,
not simply as cosmetic additions, is an essential step towards building
a stronger and valid basis for the much needed perspective on fiqh.
The paper also calls for recourse to principles enshrined in the
(the higher intents and purposes of
Islamic law). Indeed, knowledge of

any attempt to address and resolve contemporary issues challenging
Islamic thought. No doubt such knowledge can help in the process of

lenging one, with most books appearing on the subject written
mainly for specialists, scholars and intellectuals alone, the IIIT
London Office has also produced simple introductory guides to the
subject as part of its Occasional Papers series with a view to providing
easy to read, accessible material for the general reader. These include

In essence Dr. Alalwani’s paper is really a call for Muslim minori-
ties to have a sense of themselves as citizens and develop a positive,
confident view of their place and value in society, moving away
from notions of immigrant status. In broadening the concept of a
fiqh for minorities therefore to a wider notion of a fiqh of citizenship
we give recognition to the cultural and pluralistic milieu in which
Muslim minorities find themselves, governed by a humanistic vision
focusing on the betterment of society.
We hope that this paper with its innovative approach,
