Abstract

This is an analysis of an evidence doctrine in Islamic law, based on a close reading of a chapter in an authoritative Zaydī school manual in conjunction with nineteenth and twentieth-century commentaries. As I follow the presentation of the doctrinal issues by these Muslim jurists, I examine concepts and procedures surrounding the witnesses and their testimony, the related role of the judge, the distinctive institution of jarh wa-ta'dīl, and the special case of written evidence.
