Sadakat Kadri: A Journey Through Shari'a Law
In the wake of the terrorism of the last decade, legal historian Sadakat Kadri corrects Western misconceptions about shari'a, or Islamic law. Kadri, also a human-rights lawyer and author of Heaven on Earth, says that even as "shari'a" became a loaded word, most of us remained ignorant of its true meaning at our peril. Analyzing the story of Islam's foundation and expansion, Kadri shows the gradual evolution of legal ideas; how the shari'a has been appropriated and transformed by hardliners; and how the shari'a is taught, read, reinterpreted, reverenced, and challenged in the Islamic world. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
