“Maqāṣid al-Qur’ān” appears as an emerging science in the field of Islamic studies that promotes a particular understanding of the Qur’ānic discourse. As scholars’ contributions in this subject are lacking a scholarly definition of this very science, this study aims to formulate its definition in a scholarly manner. In doing so, this research firstly presents the meaning of “maqasid” as well as the “Qur’ān”; secondly, it explores the key elements for this definition in scholars’ views on this subject; finally, it formulates a definition for it in the light of these elements and explains them in brief.

argue that the muftis’ arguments for their fatwas are translatable into a more widely accessible language that allows clarifying fundamental values and their interpretations.

There has been much debate in the last century about how to modernise Islamic law so as to make it appropriate for a changing society. Among the solutions that have been proposed is the theory of maqāṣid al-sharīʿa as a legal theory for Islamic law. In the contemporary Shīʿī context, the calling

It is challenging to do justice to an edited volume in a review; space does not allow detailed discussion of all contributions, and uneven quality can compromise the value of the whole. Overall, the editor is to be congratulated for gathering a broad spectrum of current debates on maqāṣid al

Kitāb al-Maqāṣid al-saniyyah li-maʿrifat al-aǧsām al-maʿdiniyyah
Editor: Fabian Käs
Der kurze Traktat al-Maqāṣid al-saniyyah li-maʿrifat al-aǧsām al-maʿdiniyyah des berühmten ägyptischen Geschichtsschreibers al-Maqrīzī (gest. 845/1442) befasst sich mit der Klassifikation der Mineralien, ihren medizinischen Anwendungen sowie Theorien über ihre Entstehung. Käs legt hier erstmals eine kritische Textedition mit deutscher Übersetzung und ausführlichem Kommentar vor. Grundlage der Edition des arabischen Texts war in der Hauptsache ein Leidener Codex, der von al-Maqrīzī eigenhändig korrigiert und mit Glossen erweitert wurde. Ein Faksimile der Handschrift wird in diesem Band ebenfalls abgedruckt. Käs konnte nachweisen, dass der Traktat fast vollständig von den Enzyklopädien Ibn Faḍlallāh al-ʿUmarīs und al-Qazwīnīs abhängig ist. Die Inhalte der Mineralienkapitel dieser Werke lassen sich ihrerseits bis zu den frühen arabischen Naturphilosophen und ihren griechischen Vorläufern zurückverfolgen.

The short treatise entitled al-Maqāṣid al-saniyyah li-maʿrifat al-aǧsām al-maʿdiniyyah by the famous Egyptian historiographer al-Maqrīzī (d. 845/1442) deals with the classification of minerals, their medicinal uses and theories of their coming into being. Käs presents for the first time a critical edition of this text along with a German translation and a detailed commentary. The edition of the Arabic text is mainly based on the Leiden codex corrected and enlarged by al-Maqrīzī himself. A facsimile of this manuscript is also provided in this volume. Käs was able to prove that the treatise depends almost exclusively on the encyclopedias by Ibn Faḍlallāh al-ʿUmarī and al-Qazwīnī. The contents of their chapters on minerals can in turn be traced back to the early Arabic natural philosophers and their Greek precursors.
