Included in this volume are the proceedings from the Twenty-First Annual Conference of the Association of Muslim Social Scientists (AMSS) held in East Landing, Michigan from October 30 - November 1, 1992. The conference's theme focused mainly on issues in contemporary Islamic thought. The AMSS is a non-profit, professional academic organization founded towards the end of the fourteenth hijri century (1391/1972) for the sole purpose of providing a forum for both Muslim and non-Muslim social scientists interested in pursuing Islamically-oriented research and scholarship in the social sciences. In order to help scholars with their activities, AMSS organizes specialized seminars and an annual conference to help its members keep updated on developments and people who are relevant to their particular fields, and to identify other social scientists who share similar interests. Through its seminars, conferences, and annual convention, AMSS encourages the discovery of Islam and its relevance to their disciplines.

In this pioneering work Siraj Sait and Hilary Lim address Islamic property and land rights, drawing on a range of socio-historical, classical and contemporary resources. They address the significance of Islamic theories of property and Islamic land tenure regimes on the 'webs of tenure' prevalent in the Muslim societies. They consider the possibility of using Islamic legal and human rights systems for the development of inclusive, pro-poor approaches to land rights. They also focus on Muslim women's rights to property and inheritance systems. Engaging with institutions such as the Islamic endowment (waqf) and principles of Islamic microfinance, they test the workability of 'authentic' Islamic proposals. Located in human rights as well as Islamic debates, this study offers a well researched and constructive appraisal of property and land rights in the Muslim world.

Western theoretical approaches of modernization, development, social progress and interaction, have failed to understand the dynamics of the Islamic revival. Deina Abdelkader, in this seminal work argues that questions of social justice are indelibly tied to the phenomenon of contemporary Islamic resurgence as the quest for social justice is in fact motivated by the Shari’ah- hence an integral part of Islamic life and weltan-shauung. Using the two tools of maqasid and maslahah, and through the examination of the dialectical link between fiqh and reality, the author shows their indispensability as important methodological tools for the study of the social sciences and, indeed, of social phenomena.
