A Legal-hermeneutical Examination of Modern Shīʿī Discourse
To enrich the existing debates on Islam and sexual diversity, in the present book, I seek the potential discursive spaces on homosexuality in modern Imāmī legal debates. I have undertaken this research on the thesis that modern Imāmī legal tradition on homosexuality is more flexible and dynamic than one might expect. To address this essential issue, I build the study around the following constructive question: what are the discursive spaces on homosexuality in contemporary reflections within modern Shiʿi legal scholarship? Responding to this central query, the study is premised on the notion that Imāmī legal sources consist of a tradition of sacred (textual) sources, intellectual reasoning, a vast stockpile of (often contrasting) interpretations of these sources, and a distinguished methodological repertoire called ijtihad. Following the same methodology, in this work, I describe, analyse, and critique such textual-exegetical and intellectual-rational discursive aspects concerning homosexuality.
يعدّ الوقف (وجمعه: أوقاف) جزءًا لا يتجزأ من المجتمع اليمني لإدارة الثروة الخاصة وكإطار قانوني للأعمال الخيريّة والبنّية التحتيّة العامة. يركز الكتاب على أربع ميادين اجتماعية في المعرفة القانونية وهي: الفقه والتقنين وبعض حالات الوقف والمعرفة المتعلقة بالوقف في الحياة اليومية. يجمع الكتاب بين تحليل النصوص والدراسات الإثنوغرافية بهدف فهم كيف تم التعامل مع الشريعة الإسلامية واستخدامها وتحديدها واعتمادها في مسائل معينة من مسائل الوقف حيث يوجد توتّر بين النظرية الإسلامية والتطبيق على أرض الواقع. تقوم الدراسة بتحليل أهم أعمال الفقه الزَّيديّ مثل شَرْح الأزْهَار، والأحكام الإماميّة، والفتاوى، والوقفيات، معظم هذه المصادر يأتي من المناطق الشمالية الزيدية.

Islamic foundations (waqf, pl. awqāf) have been an integral part of Yemeni society both for managing private wealth and as a legal frame for charity and public infrastructure. This book focuses on four socially grounded fields of legal knowledge: fiqh, codification, individual waqf cases, and everyday waqf related knowledge. It combines textual analysis with ethnography seeking to understand how Islamic law is approached, used, produced and validated in selected topics of waqf law where the tensions are strong between ideals and pragmatic rules. The study analyses central Zaydī fiqh works such as the Sharḥ al-azhār-cluster, in addition to imamic decrees, fatwās, and waqf documents, mostly from Zaydī, Northern Yemen.
