The Dignity of Man: An Islamic Perspective

The Dignity of Man: An Islamic Perspective - Mohammad Hashim Kamali, Mohammad Hashim Kamali Short and sweet survey of the significance of human dignity in Islamic law. Probably better suited for people who are already somewhat familiar with the basics of Islamic law (not necessarily with the substance, but with terms, sources, and techniques), but very readable without any prior knowledge - the book has a fairly substantial glossary of terms which provides sufficient guidance.
