International Treaties in Islam: Practice in the Light of Islamic International Law is a study that seeks to explain Islamic international legal theory regarding treaties with non-Muslims. The treaties selected in this book cover the full spectrum of what Muslims and non-Muslims could do to develop and to protect the interest of their communities. With an extremely focused subject and approach, Professor Labeeb Ahmed Bsoul, discusses the importance of these treaties and their continually changing interpretations. The book aims to shed light on a relatively untouched branch of Islamic law, while simultaneously elucidating the social ramifications of legal theory and practice.
