The reconciliation of the fundamentals of Islamic law by Ibrāhīm ibn Mūsá Shāṭibī( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
V. 1. First published in 1884 in Tunis, The Reconciliation of the Fundamentals of Islamic Law (or al-Muwafaqat fi Usul Al-Sharai'a), written by Ibrahim ibn Musa Abu Ishaq al-Shatibi, was an innovation in Islamic jurisprudence. It was the first book to address the objectives of the shari'a. The difficulty that some may find in comprehending some of its parts may be attributed to the fact that it was the first time that the codification of the maqasid or objectives of the shari'a was undertaken. The book has been a source of inspiration, moderation, and renewal in fiqh. However, it deals with much more than the maqasid, and substantial research is needed to unravel its full contribution. The author described the contents of his book as follows: When the concealed secrets began to be revealed...I started collecting their unique meanings...I did this to the extent of my ability and strength, while elaborating the purposes of the Book (Qur'an) and the Sunna...organizing these precious gems and gathering these benefits into meanings that have re-course to the principles helping in their comprehension and attachment, and I merged them with the interpretation of principles of fiqh and organized them on a shining and radiant string. The resulting book is divided into in five parts: the fundamental concepts of the discipline; the ahkam (rules) and what is related to them; the legal purposes of the shari'a and the ahkam related to them; the comprehensive treatment of the adilla (evidences); and the rules of ijtihad and taqlid. This current v.1 covers the first two parts described above by the author. V. 2. The Reconciliation of the Fundamentals of Islamic Law (or Al-Muwafaqat fi Usul al-Shari'), written by Ibrahim ibn Musa Abu Ishaaq al-Shatibi, was and remains an innovation in Islamic jurisprudence (fiqh), since, for the first time, the objectives of shari'a were addressed. The book is an authority in understanding the objectives of the shari'a. This was the first time that the codification of the maqasid, or objectives of the shari'a, was undertaken. It was first published in 1884 in Tunis, and since then it has been a source of inspiration, moderation, and renewal in fiqh. The book, however, deals with much more than the maqasid, and substantial research is needed to unravel its full contribution. This highly skilled, contemporary English translation of the work has been divided into five sections: the fundamental concepts of the discipline, the ahkam (rules) and related concepts, the legal objectives of the shari'a and the ahkam, the comprehensive treatment of the adilla (evidences), the rules of ijtihad and taqlid. -- Amazon.com

Recommended research priorities for the Qatar Foundation's Environment and Energy Research Institute by Rand Corporation( file )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Qatar⁰́₉s leadership has created a vision of sustainable development for the country. The Qatar Foundation (QF) is moving this vision of sustainable development forward in part by establishing a national research institute that conducts and collaborates on applied research in energy, environment, and water issues, the Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute. This book recommends applied research priorities for the new institution and reports on a survey of related research institutions in the region. The authors identified 14 priority research topics that QF should consider for the institute: natural gas and petroleum production and processing, carbon capture and storage, solar-energy development, fuel cells, green building, smart grids, strategic energy planning, desalination, groundwater sustainability, water demand management, integrated water resource management, environmental characterization, and crosscutting environmental research. These topics address key challenges that Qatar⁰́₉s energy, water, and environment resources and industries face, and they are areas in which Qatar could be well positioned to pursue research. Through the survey, the authors also found that Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries have common resources and concerns about energy, water, and environment issues, and that GCC institutions are engaged in a range of research activities to address such concerns. The authors recommend that Qatar⁰́₉s institute take a multidisciplinary approach to research, and collaborate with other GCC institutions. It should also seek input from and involve the Qatar government to ensure that research priorities are aligned, resources allocated to energy and environment research reflect the institute⁰́₉s capabilities and needs, research findings reach their intended audience, and the institute and government agencies collaborate
Sustaining the Qatar National Research Fund by Gary Cecchine( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
Established in 2006 by the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) awards research grants to recipients, from undergraduate to professional, in a wide range of disciplines in Qatar and abroad. In view of recent developments, most notably the passing of Decree-Law No. (24) of 2008, which promises to expand the QNRF⁰́₉s mandate dramatically when it is implemented, RAND was asked to investigate what might be needed to ensure the QNRF⁰́₉s sustainability in the decades to come. This report presents the results of that investigation. A systematic analysis of the issue indicated that the QNRF will need to (1) make measurable progress toward achieving its core mission of fostering a research culture in Qatar and (2) evolve its governance structure and related infrastructure to accommodate its new responsibilities. The report assesses how well the QNRF has done to date in its efforts and presents recommendations for future activities to continue pursuing these parallel objectives. The QNRF has made progress in evolving its infrastructure as originally envisioned, but challenges remain. The former QNRF acting director has been named the permanent director, but a governing board has not yet been established. In addition, the funding model, organizational structure, and staffing levels, which are geared toward investigator-driven research in clearly defined fields, would have to be modified to respond to the projected expansion of the QNRF⁰́₉s roles and responsibilities called for in the new legislation
This house believes that Gulf Arabs value profit over people ( visu )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
This house believes that Muslims are failing to combat extremism ( visu )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
An overwhelming majority at the latest Doha Debate has criticised Muslims around the world for failing to combat extremism. Ed Husain, a British campaigner against fundamentalism, challenged the many Muslims who travel each year to Mecca to stand up to extremism 'right there'; claiming 'Saudi Arabia has totally demolished our heritage in Mecca and Medina.' Such public criticism of the Saudi Kingdom -- as well as Muslims in general -- is extremely rare in the Middle East. During the early 1990s Husain was a recruiter to fundamentalist groups at university campuses in the UK. Now deputy director of The Quilliam Foundation, a counter-extremism think tank, he insisted, "Muslims have to change their mindset of blaming others or we will be the laughing stock of the world." The motion was supported by US human rights lawyer Arsalan Iftikhar, who criticised Muslims for the mass demonstrations over cartoons in Denmark and the comparative silence over sectarian violence in Iraq. Speaking against the motion, Daisy Khan, executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, claimed the era of extremism was over. Alongside her, Moez Masoud, a Muslim 'televangelist' watched by millions in the region, accused the media of ignoring Muslim calls for tolerance

"The founder of the library, H.E. Shaikh Dr. Hasan Bin Mohamed Al-Thani ... has been able, in a period of 20 years, to collect about 85,000 titles in different subjects which some date back [to the] 15th century, the discovery of printing in Europe ... The Library was established in early 1979 when Sheikh Hassan took an initiative of collecting rare and famous European books and encyclopedias in different fields ... Today, this library is one of the most important research centres not only in the Gulf region but also in the Middle East. It contains about 85,000 invaluable books in Arabic and foreign languages, about 600 antique maps, charts and 2000 manuscripts"--P [8]
