Sources of Islamic Law

The scholars have classified the sources of Islamic law into various categories. One of these classifications is based on the origin of the sources. This classification views Qur’an and Sunnah as the primary sources while other sources based on reasoning are called secondary sources. The Qur’an and Sunnah are considered as the sources that originate from the text of revelation which is called textual sources or al-nass. Other sources based on the power of reasoning are called non-textual sources or al-ra’y. For further details see: ISRA, Islamic Financial System; Principles and Operations.
