This publication delves into Islamic property and land rights by leveraging a diverse array of socio-historical, classical, and contemporary resources. It explores the profound impact of Islamic theories of property and land tenure regimes on the intricate 'webs of tenure' pervasive in Muslim societies. The study evaluates the potential utilization of Islamic legal and human rights systems to foster inclusive and pro-poor approaches to land rights. Notably, it concentrates on the property and inheritance rights of Muslim women. Through an examination of institutions such as the Islamic endowment (waqf) and principles of Islamic microfinance, the publication assesses the feasibility of implementing 'authentic' Islamic proposals. Positioned within both human rights and Islamic debates, this well-researched study provides a constructive appraisal of property and land rights in the Muslim world.
