Mabādiʾ al-wuṣūl ilā ʿilm al-uṣūl


Al-Allāmah al-Ḥillī’s Mabādiʾ al-wuṣūl ilā ʿilm al-uṣūl is a testament to the revival of Shīʿī scholarship in the seventh and eighth centuries of the Hijrah. This highly-condensed text set the standard for the subsequent development and discussion of Imāmī Shīʿī legal theory (uṣūl al-fiqh), such that its influence can be traced through to modern times. This is the first Arabic critical edition of any of al-ʿAllāmah al-Ḥillī’s jurisprudential works published to date. It is based on six manuscripts, four of which date from the lifetime of the author, and comes with a full Arabic Apparatus Criticus. It will be indispensable for all serious scholars of Imāmī Shīʿī legal theory.
