Understanding Maqāsid al-Shari’ah calls for the development of a juridical sense that is finely tuned to the higher objectives and purposes of Islamic rulings, the aims of which are the formulation of a new methodology in understanding the revealed texts and the reform of Muslim thought and its application. Al-Qahtani draws attention to the importance of understanding various levels of maqāșid, including distinguishing between primary aims (al maqāşid al-aşliyyah) and secondary aims (al-maqāșid al-tabi ah). He asserts that a positive understanding of the objectives of the Shari’ah should produce affirmative human as well as cultural development in Muslim societies.
