NEW BOOK from the Late Classical Period Project
al-Lumʿa fi’l ḥudūth wa’l-ḳidam wa’l-ḳaḍā wa’l-ḳadar wa taḥqīq’t-taklīf
Ibrāhīm Ibn Muṣṭafā al-Ḥalabī al-Madāri (d. 1190/1776)
ed. Dr. Münzir Şeyhhasan
Ḥalabī was a sophisticated scholarly person who lived in Istanbul in the 18th century. In his book al-Lumʿa, he systematically tackled some of the most problematic subjects like ḥudūth, ḳaḍā, and ḳadar, validity and truth of liability in a broad sense. He developed his method considering the elements of the disciplines of philosophy, kalam, and tasawwuf. He compared the views of various schools on the relevant subjects. Not only he criticized flaws in those views, but also he presented his own ideas.
The book was previously published in 1939, by M. Zāhid al- Kawt̲h̲arī (d. 1371/1952). For our edition of the book, the author's version of the manuscript has been used with his and some of his students’ side notes. Additionally, Kawt̲h̲arī’s edition is regarded as another version and the differences between the two editions have been added to the footnotes, along with Kawt̲h̲arī’s notes as well. With the elaborate classification system, notes, and 12 schematics and tables, we strived to provide an understandable book. The book begins with a memoir about the author and his works, and it concludes with a newly added comprehensive index.
