«.Baderin must be applauded for his effort to bridge the two legal systems. He stands in a tradition of Islamic Scholarship that is both proud of itself and aware of modern times and demands.»

Leiden Journal of International Law

«This sort of scholarship is particularly important for informing public policy in the present international environment.»

European Journal of International Law

«Baderin presents a masterful and thoroughly documented definition, exploration, and historical analysis of both 'human rights' and 'Islamic law'.»

European Journal of International Law

«Sensitive, highly informed and eminently readable, it offers a unique perspective that transcends the now trite arguments between the universalistic and cultural relativistic camps - in their evaluation of Human Rights in Muslim societies. It will undoubtedly prove beneficial, for these momentous times, as well as for the future.»
