So i dunno if anyone here has done Islamic Law but if you have it'd be nice to have a little bit of help with this question; it essentially asks you to discuss the extent and nature of legislation in the Qur'an.
I've done the readings, coulson, el awa etc etc and thought I understood them but now that i'm trying to piece things together for some reason I can't seem to form a firm argument here. Usually i can understand exactly what a question is getting at but I'm having a bit of difficulty structuring my argument in this case.
At the moment i'm thinking my line of argument is the fact that obv the Qur'an is the primary source of Islamic law, however in line with classical theories on Islamic law, the Qur'an is not the only source of Islamic legislation...and thus you have to bring in a discussion of the other 3 main sources and their position in the hierarchy of Islamic legislation. Or do i just stick to discussion of Qur'anic legislation and talk about the importance of legal injunctions withing the Qur'an, despite not being primarily a book of law?
If anyone has actually done this course / can shed any light then please reply.
Thanks in advance
