There currently exists a body of discourse on finance, economics, and social governance representative of emerging and contemporary Islamic thought with an aim to create an Islamic perspective within these fields. It consists of legal rulings, recommendations, value judgments, and moral positions. Innovative Islamic discourse permeates different facets of the political spectrum, contained by the similar patterns occurring within the construction of arguments. We examine the issues surrounding the theory of knowledge used within this discourse. This study conducts an analysis of the methods of enquiry and lines of reasoning emerging from these discourses along with an investigation of the discursive rationale behind their usage are offered. Focus is centred on the method of enquiry underpinning the creation of this knowledge, while accounting for the line of reasoning applied to verify created knowledge, the origin of its epistemic authority and construction of its ontological justifications within the discourse.
This paper seeks to conceptualise a reusable framework for deconstructing this created knowledge. A resultant conceptualised framework provides a method for using discursive data to deconstruct arguments within an Islamic paradigm. The study aims to benefit future students and academics who wish to elucidate connections between juristic-subjectivity, argumentation, and epistemic sources within Islamic discourse, and the different methods applied by scholars to negotiate relationships between them.
