Ibn Rushd - Mujtahid of Europa
A comprehensive study of Dr. Hajj Asadullah Yate

Ibn Rushd
A great mujtahid, teacher, doctor, judge, scientist as well as philosopher. His Bidayat al-Mujtahid is a concise handbook of fiqh designed to train 'Ulama to understand the principles uopn which Islamic Law is based - in order to elevate them and enable them to practise ijtihad. His exposition of the law is traditional and Madinan, i.e. has nothing to do with the islamic model propagated in the Media today, namely Islam as religion of punishment and opression.
He reminds us, at the end of the Bidaya that the Shari'at is all mercy and justice, and as Deen al-Fitrat, not dissimilar to the 'Nomos' of the Greeks - a way which frees man and woman by its emphasis on the virtues of couage, generosity, justice and modesty.
