Ignaz Goldziher wrote his book 'Die Zahiriten' in 1883. The English translation of this standard work on Islamic jurisprudence appeared in 1971. The book has been in print ever since. This new edition in the Brill Classics in Islam series shows that "The hir?s" has not lost any of its actuality. The individual that adheres to the principles of madhhab al- hir, the Islamic legal school, is called hir?. Goldziher gives an extensive presentation of the hir?te school, its doctrine and the position of its representatives within orthodox Islam. hirism accepts only the facts clearly revealed by sensible, rational and linguistic intuitions, controlled and corroborated by Qur nic revelation. This history of Islamic theology sheds light on the hir?te legal interpretation vis-a-vis other legal schools and gives an interesting insight in questions like 'are all prescriptions and prohibitions in Islamic law commanded or forbidden?'


Ignaz Goldziher (1850-1921) was born in Hungary, into an Orthodox family. He studied Arabic, Turkish and Persian. Goldziher studied in Berlin, Leiden and Budapest and got his doctorate in Leipzig. From 1873 he traveled in the Middle East. Returning to Budapest he was appointed an assistant professor in 1894. He earned his living as secretary of the Jewish community of Pest. He was honored by universities and academies in many countries for his contribution to oriental studies. His primary interest was in pre-Islamic and Islamic law, tradition, religion and poetry. Goldziher regarded Judaism and Islam as kindred faiths and was a proponent of Islam at his time.
