    This text discusses sharecropping in the Yemen against the background of Islamic law and customary law. Sharecropping is interesting in Islam since its basis is ostensibly inconsistent with the Islamic prohibition against transactions involving gharar (risk or uncertainty).This book discusses sharecropping in the Yemen against the background of Islamic law and customary law. Sharecropping is particularly interesting in Islam since its basis (rent as a proportion of an unknown future harvest) is ostensibly inconsistent with the Islamic prohibition against transactions involving gharar (risk or uncertainty). The first half of the book analyses how Islamic theory views sharecropping and is based on a detailed analysis of key legal texts, while the second half focuses on sharecropping as it exists in practice in the Yemen. Textual sources (Islamic legal texts, contracts, pleas and fatwas are related throughout to Yemeni sharecropping in practice, a task not previously attempted, and the work has been written so as to be accessible both to social scientists and to Islamic legal specialists.
