URDU: 'احکام القرآن 'اور 'الفصول فی الاصول' از امام ابوبکر جصّاصؒ کا اسلوب و منہج
Methodology of Imām Abu Bakar Jaṣṣāṣ’s Ahkām-ul-Qur’ān and Al-Faṣūl-fil-Uṣūl
Books of Imām Abu Bakr Ahmad Bin Ali Al-Rāzi Al-Jaṣṣāṣ Hanafi (RA) (305-370 A.H) especially his juritic encyclopedic Tafsīr “Aḥkām-ul-Qur’ān” and its preface “Al-faṣūl-fil-Uṣūl” are included among the last compilations written after his accession to Hanafī throne. These books are an extract of his lifelong experiences and many important reference sources. On the whole, besides the commands and problems of Fiqh with its principles of jurisprudence, Ahkām-ul-Qur’ān and Al-Faṣūl-fil-Uṣūl encompass multiple sciences and artistic values like sciences of Hadith, dictionary, grammar, notation, poetry, eloquence, logic, philosophy, history, discussion or contest and criticism, etc. These sciences are collectively required for juristic deduction from the Qur’ānic and Ahādīth texts. However, this has transformed Tafsīr book into an encyclopedia of different sciences. This aspect reflects the methodology of many precedent scholars, prevalent in the comprehensive writings of that time.
