The history of Egyptian legal thought provides keys to appreciating the origins and content of present-day Islamic legal thought worldwide, and this book has attempted to facilitate the positing of connections between past and present. To find connections, one can look to contemporary practices that would have appeared novel or foreign to an Egyptian jurist in 1875. Many attitudes of today were either hard to conceive or inconceivable then. This concluding chapter summarizes novel practices in Islamic legal thought from present-day Egypt that can also be, in many cases, observed worldwide. The concluding chapter discusses the decline of Franco-Egyptian methodologies and their function within the wider spectrum of Islamic legal revivalist thought. Finally, this concluding chapter evaluates at a high level the dilemmas and priorities of Islamic legal revivalism in the present day.
