Sources of Shariah Quran, Ahadith, Sunnah, Ijtehad, Fatwa For an area of human activity or which there is no mention in Quran, Sunnah or Ahadith, the theologians indulge in Ijtehad ’. The resulting jurisprudence is termed fiqh (literally comprehension) and the passing of a judgement is termed a ‘fatwa’. Fiqh is derived in two ways. Firstly, through achieving a consensus among ulema, termed Ijma ’, and secondly through deduction by analogy with existing principles, termed Qiyas ’. Shari`ah is thus composed of laws derived from the Qur'an, Sunnah, Ijma and Qiyas. Four schools of thought: Hanifi, Maliki, Shafi'I and Hanbali 9 Islamic Banking

Sources of Shariah: Quranic Verses on Riba Surah Ar-Rum: (30:39) A Makkan Surah wherein the term Riba finds mention in the following words: "And whatever riba you give so that it may increase in the wealth of the people, it does not increase with Allah." [Ar ‐Rum 30:39+ This verse is not of prohibitive nature. It simply says that riba does not increase with Allah i.e. it carries no reward in the Hereafter. However, it may be taken as a subtle indication to the fact that the practice is not favored by Allah. 12 Islamic Banking

Sources of Shariah: Quranic Verses on Riba Surah An-Nisaa: (4:161) Surah An-Nisaa where the term riba is used in the context of sinful acts of the Jews in the following words: "And because of their charging riba while they were prohibited from it." *An‐ Nisaa 4:161] While listing the evil deeds of Jews, it is mentioned that they used to take riba which was prohibited for them. The exact time of this verse is very difficult to ascertain. The commentators are mostly silent on this point, but the context in which the verse was revealed suggests that it would have been revealed before the 4th year of Hijra.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
