Islamic Jurisprudence in the Classical Era
“The Rebel and the Imām in Early Islam: Explorations in Muslim Historiography” by Najam Haider is a groundbreaking work that delves into the complex world of early Islamic history and challenges traditional narratives. Haider, a renowned scholar and expert in Islamic studies, presents a comprehensive analysis of the historical events surrounding the rebellion of the fourth caliph, ʿAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib, against the Umayyad dynasty.
In this meticulously researched and thought-provoking book, Haider aims to shed light on the often overlooked perspectives of the rebels who opposed the ruling elite in early Islamic society. Drawing on a wide range of primary sources, including historical accounts, biographies, and legal texts, the author unravels the intricacies of the rebellion and its implications for the development of Islamic political thought.
Haider begins by examining the historical context in which the rebellion took place, providing readers with a thorough understanding of the social, political, and religious.
