This encyclopedia is the work of a team that includes professors and lecturers from five Saudi universities: Imam Muhammad ibn Saud Islamic University, University of King Saud, the University of King Khalid, the Islamic University of Madinah and al-Qaseem University.
The encyclopedia provides a focus on contemporary Fiqh issues. The subject matter of this encyclopedia is the legal provisions and rulings of detailed actions of Muslim adults. It does not tackle other legal or general issues. It is concerned only with issues of Fiqh that relate to the present. However, it may discuss some questions that are not new because they are particularly needed in explaining a contemporary issue or because some of their aspects or forms require reconsideration as a result of new developments. Jurisprudence (Fiqh)
It is divided according to Fiqh topics. The encyclopedia includes seven parts: worship; monetary transactions; family questions; questions of food, dress and adornments; offences, judgement and international relations; Muslim minorities; and contemporary questions of medicine. Since we are keen that every part will incorporate all relevant issues and remain independent of other parts, some questions may come up in more than one part.
Peer reviewed. No less than twenty-one specialized reviewers from Saudi Arabia and other countries have participated in the process of peer review, so as to ensure that each of the seven parts was reviewed by three independent reviewers. The process was carried out in two stages: one when each part was half way through and the second after it was completed. After that the Centre formed a special committee to review the entire work, revising its style and arrangement and adding an index to each part.
