The most complete concise sourcebook for Sharia Law is ‘Umdat al-Salik, or Reliance of the Traveller, compiled by Ahmad ibn Niqib al-Misri (d. 1368).

This “classic manual of Islamic Sacred Law” was translated into English by Nuh Ha Mim Keller in 1991. The 1,200 page volume has been certified by Al-Azhar University (Egypt) and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (USA).

Many of the provisions have been brought more up-to-date with commentary by ‘Umar Barakat (d. 1890). While the volume represents the Shafi’i School of jurisprudence, it is identical with 75 percent of the other three Sunni Schools of Islamic law.  References in the text are to this manual or the Quran.

One of the most important law of war documents to emerge recently is the much-anticipated U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Law of War Manual .  Decades in development, the 1,200 + page treatise aims to state the lex lata (the law as it is, not as we might want it to be) of the international law of war – or at least DoD’s opinion in that regard.

Almost immediately, however, the Manual drew criticism, much of aired on blogs like Just Security and Lawfare, but also in op-eds in major media outlets.  The New York Times, for example, published an apoplectic editorial condemning the Manual’s assessment of the law related to those who claim to be journalists.  As I detailed elsewhere , that claim was way off-base.

But there have been other critiques of various aspects of the Manual , including serious debate about its treatment of a variety of issues including human shields, cyber operations, the precautions to be taken prior to attacks, and even the role of honor in war.
