Halaqa

فَتَعَالَى اللَّهُ الْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ وَلَا تَعْجَلْ بِالْقُرْآنِ مِن قَبْلِ أَن يُقْضَىٰ إِلَيْكَ وَحْيُهُ وَقُل رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا

سورة طه، آية ١١٤

Welcome to the Shariawiz Halaqa


The Shariawiz Halaqa is your source for more information or questions about Islamic Law.

Halaqa literally means "circle" in Arabic. In the 7th century, Muslim juristic knowledge started as study circles in which a pious Muslim scholar - surrounded by people - would debate religious issues and teach interested students. The knowledge and production of legal doctrine began in these circles that gave birth to the maḏāhib (Sharīʿa doctrinal schools): Ḥanafī, Shāfi’ī, Mālikī, and Ḥanbalī, among others.


Consistent with the dynamic Muslim halaqa tradition that encourages learning, knowledge, and lively debate, the Shariawiz Halaqa will regularly publish posts debating, exploring, and explaining Islamic inheritance law topics from a variety of perspectives.
