Abstract

On 27 April 2018, IAIS and the Maqasid Institute of Malaysia (MIM) jointly organised a public lecture entitled ‘The Future of Maqasid al-Shariah Discourse,’ delivered by Prof. Jasser Auda, currently a Distinguished Professor at the Sultan Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Centre for Islamic Studies (SOASCIS), Brunei. Auda explained that, similar to other ideas, fiqh needs renewal and rejuvenation in order to stay relevant. With the current rapid pace of economic and technological advancement, new fiqh categories are needed, such as the fiqh of the environment, the fiqh of construction, and the fiqh of performing arts.
