Classical Islam : A Sourcebook of Religious Literature Hardback

Edited by Norman Calder, Dr Jawid Mojaddedi, Professor Andrew Rippin


This definitive sourcebook presents more than sixty authoritative new translations of key Islamic texts.

Edited and translated by three leading specialists, Classical Islam features eight thematically-linked sections covering the Qur'an and its interpretation, the life of Muhammad, hadith, law, theology, mysticism and Islamic history.

The new edition has been expanded to cover a fuller range of material illustrating the growth of Islamic thought from its seventh-century origins through to the end of the medieval period.

It includes illustrations, a glossary, extensive bibliography and explanatory prefaces for each text.

Classical Islam is an essential resource for the study of early and medieval Islam and its legacy.
