The Kitāb al-Umm is a book of law that is used as an authoritative guide by the Shafi’i school of fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence). The work was composed by the founder of the Shafi’i school, Imām ash-Shāfi‘ī (767-820 CE). The term “al-Umm” means “the exemplar.” The book is noted for its hermeneutic approach to developing legal principles, basing them on revelation rather than traditional authority.
