    Restricting the Meanings according to the Hanafi Fundamentalists: Principles and Results

    Get PDF
    This research aims to review the phenomenon of restricting interpretations among Hanafi fundamentalists, through an investigation of the historical stages and its most prominent symbols, in light of the clarification of the criteria that limit the sections of meanings, and the foundations on which the restriction was based. To achieve this goal, the study followed the inductive approach that confines the history of Hanafi fundamentalist research on the subject of verbal meanings, while relying on the deductive analytical approach. It is based on tracing the fundamentalist tendencies that appeared among the late Hanafi scholars to clarify the nature of these tendencies in determining the foundations and criteria for the exclusive division according to two Sheikhs namely Shams Al-Imam Al-Sarkhasi and Fakhr Al-Islam Al-Bazdawi, and the fundamentalist consequences resulting from the narrowing of meanings. It has been shown through the study that Judge Abu Zaid Al-Dabusi is considered the first to present a vision about limiting the divisions of meanings according to the Hanafi school of thought, and he was followed by Shams Al-Imam Al-Sarkhasi and Fakhr Al-Islam al-Bazdawi. The later discussions were extensive about the basis on which the division is based and the criteria that support it. The researcher concluded that the basis is what the division of meanings is based on is how the word denotes it, and the division is based on two main criteria: the criterion of subjectivity, and the criterion of intentionality

    analytical approach to address the nature of the problems accompanying the means of raising a topic for public discussion as a method of parliamentary control over government actions. This is done by searching for the concept of a request for public debate, the constitutionality of this method, and other topics related to this method; so that we can arrive at a legal and practical evaluation of the effectiveness and accuracy of this method in terms of its inputs and results in achieving the public interest in comparison and approach with other parliamentary means. Within this context, the objectives of the research revolve around demonstrating the effectiveness of this method in light of the limited practice of this method by members of Parliament in comparison with the use of other parliamentary control means such as the parliamentary question, which gives very important indications about the feasibility of raising a general topic for public discussion, both in terms of procedures as well as from the question of practical results, a phenomenon that will be treated with an analytical approach based on the neutral and objective critical method. In conclusion, the research recommended several recommendations, the most important of which are for the Jordanian legislator to find a specific and disciplined constitutional formula that gives legitimacy to the request for public debate; being an effective means of parliamentary control; and that there should be a more influential role for the parliamentary committees within the Parliament with regard to activating the mechanisms of requesting public debate, given that these committees represent the most technically specialized legal place to study this request, and they have the ability to study the request from all its legal and realistic aspects

    The Influence of Unidroit Principles on the Evolving Interpretation of the Contract

    Get PDF
    principles, are not mere agreements in which some clauses were inserted by the will of the parties, but rather are real common economic projects between the parties, these contracts are intended to achieve the common contractual interest of the parties by ensuring that their effects remain effective. Because these contracts are in a situation of constant interaction with reality, this requires preserving them from the risk of rescission and invalidity as much as possible, and by various legal means. Perhaps the most important and qualified way to preserve the international commercial contract (the common economic project) is to resort to the interpretation of the contract in a way that the interpreter puts in mind the purpose of the contract in society, which gives the interpretation the character of (advanced), which is characterized by trying to achieve harmonization between the contract and its changing reality, thus ensuring in the end the contractual common interest. In this sense, the advanced interpretation of the contract means the mental process that attempts to determine the intention of the contracting parties from outside the terms of the contract by harmonizing the contract with the reality and customs of the transaction, as well as maintaining its efficiency and integrity. The advanced interpretation of the contract is also characterized by an objective tendency that is concerned with the search for the contractual intent according to the reasonable person\u27s understanding of the terms of contracts at the time of their conclusion, it is also concerned with the purpose of the contract in light of the circumstances surrounding it. The research concluded that the features of the advanced interpretation in the principles of Unidroit lie in the fairness and efficiency of the contract, in addition to its integrity and realism

    remuneration under the contracting contract, and the mechanisms of enforcing the employer to implement his obligation to pay the remuneration, in light of the Palestinian legislative reality, which is still dependent upon the Mejella (Journal of Judicial Rules), as the Civil Law in force in Palestine. The study attempted to find a solution to the legislative shortcoming represented in the fact that the provisions of the Mejella devoid of a clear and explicit regulation of the provisions of the contracting contract and the responsibilities of the parties to that contract, especially with regard to obligating the employer to pay the remuneration and the means of compelling him to implement such obligation, by expanding the implications of the Mejella’s codes, and the jurisprudential analogy on them in an analytical and critical manner. It will be relying on a special reading of the codes of the Mejella and interfacing them with other legislation in force in Palestine, opinion of scholars and Judges, and the Palestinian courts’ judgments on the issue. Accordingly, the study disused the effects of the employer\u27s obligation to pay the wage, and the means of enforcing the employer to implement his commitment to pay the remuneration. Then the study concluded with a set of results and recommendations, which we consider necessary to be adopted, to fill the legislative gap in Palestine, especially with regard to the contractor’s option to retaining the work, and the expansion of the Mejella’s provisions regarding the precluded excuse, which is synonymous with the principles of force majeure and unforeseeable circumstances
