This book surveys the subject of abrogation (naskh) in the Quran, hadith, and Islamic literature, illustrating that the concept of abrogation was introduced after the prophetic era in order to explain certain verses of the Quran and what has come to be termed as conflicting prophetic narrations (mukhtalaf al-hadith).
It goes on to suggest that the abrogated rulings were merely pre-Islamic cultural practices that contradicted Islamic principles. Furthermore, the book argues that the Quranic verses and prophetic narrations that were misperceived as conflicting should be contextually situated and applied according to the wisdom behind them, with the practical implication being the validation of all Quranic verses and (authentic) prophetic instructions, regardless of their perceived contradictions, allowing Islamic jurisprudence to retain its flexibility within changing circumstances.
