Abstract

https://doi.org/10.12730/13091719.2010.11.10 Zeyd bin Ali : Hayatı, Eserleri ve İslam Hukuk Düsüncesindeki Yeri [Zayd b. ʿAlī: His Life, Works, and Place in Islamic Legal Thought], by Eren Gündüz, (Istanbul: Düsünce Kitabevi Yayınları, 2008), XVI+374 pp., ISBN 978-975-6434-24-6 (First paragraph) The current work is a PhD thesis on Zayd b. ʿAlī (d. 122/740), leader of the Zaydiyya sect and the attributed author of al-Majmūʿ al-fiqhī. It is composed of an introduction, three chapters, a conclusion, and a rich bibliography. Zayd b. ʿAlī is a prominent scholar of the political history of Islam and an authority on the sciences of Islamic law/fiqh, Qur'anic exegesis/tafsīr and Prophetic Tradition/ḥadīth. He is not only the leader of a sect but also at the center of discussions on the author of the first fiqh book and his political activities. Eren Gündüz selected the issue of the place of Zayd b. ʿAlī in Islamic legal thought as the main concern of his PhD thesis by focusing on the scientific value of al-Majmūʿ al-fiqhī, the attribution of which has been disputed.
