About this item

Drawing mostly from legal opinions and rulings or decisions in recently published collections of the Mahdi's letters and papers, Layish examines the legal methodology of Muhammad Ahmad from his manifestation as the Mahdi until his death (1881-85). He concludes that the Mahdi had quite moderate impact on subsequent legal activities in Sudan. He describes the Mahdist state and the Mahdi's legal methodology as introduction. Then he focuses on the Mahdi's legislation regarding slaves, property, obligations and contracts, marriage, divorce, custody, inheritance and wills, homicide and bodily harm, hadd offenses such as unlawful sexual intercourse and false accusation thereof and apostasy and repentance, international law, alms tax, public morality, and testimony.
