Abstract

The Islamic legal system, like any other legal system, adjusts to political events, evolving social circumstances, and intellectual developments. Therefore, it is hardly suprising that Muslom jurists have referred to traumatic events, such as the civil strife that began during the reign of Utman b. Affan (r. 23-35) and reached its climax in a series of battles during the reign of Ali b. Abi Talin (r.35-40) in their writings. [from the article]
