سیرت حلبیہ میں فقہ السیرۃ کے اُسلوب کا مطالعہ
Study of Methodology of Fiqh Al-Sīrah in “Sīrat-e-Ḥalabiyyah”
Imām Ḥalabi is one of the greatest scholars of Tafsīr, Ḥadith, Fiqh and Sīrah. His book Sīrat-e-Ḥalabiyyah is a masterpiece and classic work on the sīrah of Holy Prophet ﷺ and has got a significant place in Sīrah literature. In this book Imām Ḥalabi deals with sīrah in a different and unique way. He has derived from it jurisitc implications, instructions and lessons for practical life. This style of Sīrah writing is called Fiqh Al-Sīrah. By applying Islamīc sciences and mechanisms of sharī’ah he has authenticated the sīrah narrations firstly and then, infers out of them Islāmic law and rulings. He also dispelled the contradiction among different narrations and quoted the references from Qur’ān and Sunnah on the points derived by him. Somewhere he referred the opinions of different schools of thought besides his own opinion but mostly, being a follower of Imām Shāf‘ī he has confined himself by giving Shāf‘ī opinion only. This article focuses on analytical study of Seerat-e-Ḥalabiyyah in the context of fiqh Al-sīrah.
