Audible Editor Reviews

This iMinds case study not only examines Sharia law as a system of jurisprudence, but also, by extension, its place in Islamic daily life - its role in regulating Muslims relationships with both one another and Allah. Listeners will understand Sharia's core tenets - including its categories of human behavior and the Five Pillars of Islam - and how they impact contemporary Muslims' daily life. BBC documentarian David Whiteley traces Sharia's bases to the Quran and the teachings of Muhammad. Continuing through history, Whiteley examines the forms of leadership recognized by Sunnis and Shiites, and the eventual establishment of different schools of jurisprudence within Sharia law. In his soft-spoken baritone, Whitely strikes a leisurely pace, while nevertheless wasting no words as he imparts a wealth of information.
