Ibn Abdin, Muhammad Amin ibn Umar

(d. 1836 )

Syrian scholar. Trained in Shafii jurisprudence but eventually became known as a scholar of Hanafi jurisprudence. Worked outside the official Ottoman religio-legal bureaucracy. His fatwas dealt with issues represented by his nineteenth-century context and exhibited the workings of the process of rulemaking; he disagreed with some key positions of his own school, arguing that rules continuously evolved, leading to differences even from those of Abu Hanifah , the eponymous founder of the school.
