Abstract

This paper offers a model for conceptualizing the interaction between law and morality in religious legal systems, with specific reference to Islamic law. The doctrinal discussion concentrates on the dog in Islamic law, but the analytic focus is to shift focus on the law/morality distinction by adopting the perspective of religious legal traditions in order to return the gaze on the presumptions of secularity that animate contemporary conceptions of law.

Keywords: Islamic Law, Law and Morality, Dogs and Purity, Law and Religion
