Contemporary Maqasid Projects: An Evaluation and Rectification

The maqasid studies have known a substantial accumulation of knowledge demonstrated by one of the most descriptive and statistical works carried out by the late Dr. Muhammad Kamal Al-Din Imam entitled “Al-Dalil al-Irshadi Ila Maqasid al-Shari`ah (Guidelines for the Objectives of Islamic Law). Institutionally, there had also been several research centres dedicated to “maqasid” within the Muslim and Western worlds, providing significant qualitative and quantitative works on the epistemological and methodological maqasidi thought.
Accordingly, the Fifth Issue of the Journal of Contemporary Maqasid Studies focuses on understanding the maqasid-based knowledge produced by these research centres and institutions and their impact on the maqasid research in order to evaluate and rectify it for the development of the maqasid methodology within the following compasses:

  • The “maqasid project” at the Centre for Maqasid al-Shari`ah Studies
  • The “maqasid project” at the Maqasid Institute
  • The “maqasid project” at the Maqasid Centre for Studies and Research
  • The “maqasid project” at the International Institute of Islamic Thought
  • The “maqasid project” at the Journal of Al-Muslim Al-Mu'asir
  • The “maqasid project” at the Centre for Civilizational Renewal, Legal & Future Studies
  • The “maqasid project” in Kamal Al-Din's “Al-Dalil al-Irshadi Ila Maqasid al-Shari`ah
