Developed this system on framework
Distinguishing between legal schools is the degree to which they lye on t he Hadith
Ratio of impor tance of elements differ from one to the next
Relatively liberal school that gives equal weight to the Sunnah and the Qur’an and
allows input from community
Prevalent in Nor th Afr ica, Spain in medieval period, West Africa (Sudan)
Shafi
Founder known as one of the brightest, sharpest legal minds of his day, traveled to
get good span of range of practice in Muslim world
His work significantly changed nature and scope of Islamic law
Shafi advocated absolute reliance on Qur’an and Sunnah and was much more
reticent about including other elements such as reasoning of scholars, input of
community, his view was that law should faithfully be derived from revelation or
life example of Prophet (Sunnah)
Most inf luential in southern parts of peninsula, south East Asia
