This book was reviewed in the journal, AR-RA’IQ, by Dr. Sulaiman Dorloh and Dr. Muhammad Atiullah bin Othman – “The book, ‘Islamic Sources and International Law’ (Nehaluddin Ahmad & Gary I. Lilienthal, 2023), conducts a critical investigation of whether people are bound by international treaties, in either or both Islamic and liberal democratic traditions. It considers those countries, that identified as liberal democracies, as being the primary adherents of western-derived international law.” To read the full review, click here.


This book has taken an extremely important and unexplored subject, Islamic international law, which has often been largely presented only within the theological texts. However, this book has made a sincere attempt to present this subject with the much-needed academic rigor in the context of modern international law. The learned authors, through their in-depth research, have identified the following facts and principles. Both systems recognize the doctrine of pacta sunt servanda. Ahd, or pledge, or commitment, has a huge significance in Islamic law.
