Abstract

Research design is essential in constructing any conducted research. It is a plan, strategy and investigation structure in a particular element defined in accordance with research objectives. However, the current research design is based on the Conventional Research Method (CRM) which fails to address Islamic based researches. CRM and Islamic Research Method (IRM) are different in many features. As the first is claimed as being constructed based on a universal perspective, IRM is structured on the pertinent fundamentals of Islamic overview. Somehow, before its good rapport, CRM is considerably counted in Islamic and Muslim intelligentsia. It brings to the question of how far the CRM is relevant to study the above-mentioned items as its perspective and epistemology are different from IRM. Hence, this study was conducted to construct one of the IRM research components that will be able to contribute to the framework of tafseer al-fiqhiy. Tafseer al-fiqhiy is a set of a guideline of commentary or interpretation employed by mufassirin (authors of tafseer) in discussing fiqh’s problems, relevant jurisprudence (laws) which are in line with the interpreted Quranic verses. It laments some strategies, specific steps and indicators focusing on the pattern of tafseer al-fiqhiy are in lieu of applying it into researches of Islamic fiqh. In achieving this aim, the qualitative approach was conducted focusing on exploratory design to study the pattern of tafseer al-fiqhiy. Apart, the study took into consideration the purpose of examining the relevant works of literature. The discussions in this research are divided into two folds: firstly, identifying the tafseer al-fiqhiy and secondly, analyzing the elements of tafseer al-fiqhiy to be applied into IRM. The findings suggest some notions regarding the suitability and relevance of tafseer al-fiqhiy can be utilised in the concerned. It also ties up with the Islamic juristic issues. Under the status quo, tafseer al-fiqhiy posits its appropriateness in the research of fiqh prior to its accuracy and reliability. It is also parallel to the Islamic standard as the tafseer al-fiqhiy is retrieved from the vital branch of Islamic sciences viz. tafseer al-Quran. Thus, it can be a frame of reference amongst the scholars who have the interest to venture into the study of Islamic discourses.
