Synopsis: With the end of the early Islamic period, Muslim scholars came to sense that a rift had begun to emerge between the teachings and principles of Islam and Muslims daily reality and practices. The most important means by which scholars sought to restore the intimate contact between Muslims and the Quran was to study the objectives of Islam, the causes behind Islamic legal rulings and the intentions and goals underlying the Shariah, or Islamic Law. They made it clear that every legal ruling in Islam has a function which it performs, an aim which it realizes, a cause, be it explicit or implicit, and an intention which it seeks to fulfill, and all of this in order to realize benefit to human beings or to ward off harm or corruption. They showed how these intentions, and higher objectives might at times be contained explicitly in the texts of the Quran and the Sunnah, while at other times, scholars might bring them to light by means of independent reasoning based on their understanding of the Quran and the Sunnah within a framework of time and space.

About the Author: Al-Raysuni sheds light on al-Shatibi inductive method, demonstrating both its value and importance. Sound approaches to understanding the Quran and Sunnah are promoted in particular by the author discussion of the issue of talil, that is, the practice of identifying the causes underlying Islamic Law and its rulings.
