In this lecture, delivered at the celebration of the publication of Dr Makhlouf’s book, I claim that it makes a significant contribution towards establishing the foundations of the Law of Islamic Finance as a specialist sub-field of Islamic finance, and that it therefore makes a significant contribution towards the making of further progress in the study and practice of Islamic finance generally. It does this mainly by filling significant gaps in a largely unsatisfactory body of literature on the Law of Islamic Finance. It also makes all the benefits of the book available to the francophone world, provides access for that world to an entire body of anglophone scholarship, and lays the foundations for a ‘doctrinal substrate’ of the Law of Islamic Finance in France.
