Sadr al-Shari'a, a Bukharan Hanafi theologian and jurist who lived in Bukhara and Herat in the post-Mongol period, attempted to synthesize the prevalent Ash'ari theological tradition with the Central Asian Hanafi juristic tradition.
He focused in particular on the Hanafi Usul work of al-Pazdawi (d. 1089), on the one hand, and the two most influential theological works of the period, the al-Mukhtasar (The Abbreviated) of lbn al-Hajib (d. 1249) and al-Mahsul (The Harvest) of al-Razi, on the other. Many commentaries were written on Sadr al-Shari'a's work, al-Tawdih, itself a commentary on al-Tanqih (The Revision) by the same author.
One such commentary, al-Talwih (The Alluding) by Sa'd aldin al-Taftazani (d. 1390 ), was so successful that it gained unrivaled prestige in usul al-fiqh within the Ottoman intellectual circles up until modern times. The Central Asian Sa'd al-din al-Taftazani may be regarded as one of the most influential scholars within the Ottoman milieu. His works set the standard in Ottoman higher education in three fields: rhetoric (balagha), philosophical theology (kalam), and legal theory (usul al-fiqh ).
