From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fatawa-e-Alamgiri (also known as Fatawa-i-Hindiya in Turkey, Egypt and Syria) is a compilation of law created at instance of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb (who was also known as 'Alamgir'). This compilation is based on Islam's Sharia law, and was the work of many scholars, principally from the Hanafi school.

The Fatawa-e-Alamgiri is notable for several reasons:

  • It spanned 30 volumes
  • It served as the basis of law and doctrine imposed by Aurangzeb throughout his empire
