QiyÃ¢s dan Istiá¸¥sÃ¢n dalam Rasionalitas Uá¹£Ã»l al-SarakhsÃ®
There are two conceptual terms that this paper will try to expose. The first is analogy (qiyÃ¢s) and the second is Istiá¸¥sÃ¢n, an analogy?like method of extrapolating jurisprudential rules. The paper will try to speak of their relationship in the light of al-SarakhsÃ®s rationality. In the field of Islamic jurisprudence, the two concepts are often seen as contradicting to one another. The Shafi?ite jurists are even of belief that using istihs?n is legally forbidden for that would contradict the general rules of Islamic law. The paper assumes that despite general view of the jurists that istiá¸¥sÃ¢n is an equivocal method it can nonetheless be fitted into qiyÃ¢s. To show that however, the paper would inevitably re-define both qiyÃ¢s and istiá¸¥sÃ¢n as proposed by al-Sarakhs?. By exploiting the ideas of al-al-SarakhsÃ®, the paper hopes that new lights may be shed as far as the richness of Islamic method in jurisprudence is concerned.
