This Special Issue of Islam and Civilisational Renewal on the objectives and purposes of Islamic law opens – differently from our previous practice – with a focus article, written by myself, which is entitled "Maqasid al-Shari'ah and Ijtihad as Instruments of Civilisational Renewal: A Methodological Perspective" in which I have tried to provide an outline of maqasid al-shari'ah and its contemporary relevance by developing the idea of a maqasid-based framework for civilisational renewal (tajdid hadari). Maqasid have been the focus of renewed attention in recent decades as shown by the plethora of publications, doctoral dissertations and conferences on the subject in numerous Muslim countries and universities.
