Ahmad Ibn Idris, Vikor, Knut S., Radtke, Bernd

SUMMARY

The Moroccan mystic and theologian A'mad b. Idr's (1749-1837) was one of the most dynamic personalities in the Islamic world of the 19th century. Through his teachings and the activity of his students important Sufi orders were founded which exerted wide-ranging social and political influence, orders such as the San'siyya in Libya and the Khatmiyya in the Sudan. To date, publications dealing with him have especially focused on his biography and particular aspects of his mystical doctrines. In the present work an Arabic edition and translation with commentary of two texts are made available which throw light on Ibn Idr's' attitude towards the religious-dogmatic questions of his day and age. The first text, "Ris'lat al-Radd 'al? ahl al-ra'y, provides information about Ibn Idr's' relation to the Islamic schools of jurisprudence, in particular his position regarding the "ijtih'd-taql'd debate which was so significant in the 18th and 19th centuries. Like many similarly minded scholars of his time, A'mad b. Idr's categorically rejects the authority of the established schools of jurisprudence and favors instead the application of personal methods in deriving a legal judgement. The second text presented here is a vivid report by one of his students describing a debate which Ibn Idr's, at an advanced age, entered into with a Wahh'b? theologian in the Yemenite city of saby? in 1832. The text makes clear with regard to which points Ibn Idr's hoped to establish agreement with the Wahh'b?s, and where it was not possible to reach any mutual understanding. The introduction of the present book examines the tumultuous political circumstances in which both Arabic texts were composed and sketchesthe larger cultural and intellectual context which shaped Ibn Idr's' world of ideas.Ahmad Ibn Idris is the author of 'Exoteric Ahmad Ibn Idris A Sufi's Critique of the Madhahib and the Wahhabis Four Arabic Texts With Translation and Commentary' with ISBN 9789004113756 and ISBN 9004113754.
