Abstract

Muhammad Hamidullah was a genius and a prolific writer. Anyone who has interest in the Qur'an's translation, Hadith literature, the Prophet's (peace be upon him) biography, international Islamic law, Islamic politics and archival heritage of Islam, cannot ignore Dr. Muhammad Hamidullah's contributions. But very few may be aware that he was one of the pioneers of modern Islamic economics. Hamidullah started his writings on Islamic economics in 1930s. In fact, it is not easy to get records of some of his early writings. Some of his articles were published in journals that discontinued publication. This may be one of the reasons why his contribution to Islamic economics could not be fully known. The editor's three papers - “Hamidullah: Life and Works”, “An Introduction to Hamidullah's Contributions to Islamic Economics”, and “Zakah as the State Finance: A Critical Study of Hamidullah’s Views” - give plenty of information about Dr. Hamidullah’s personality and multifaceted achievements in Islamic sciences in general and Islamic economics in particular. The book also contains collection of Dr. Hamidullah’s papers with useful notes and editing and corrections.
