  • Andi Mardika IAIN Lhokseumawe


The development of Ushul Fiqh from time to time is always dynamic so that its existence has undergone methodological and systematic evolution and development. substantially the existence of the science of Ushul Fikih already existed at the time of the Prophet and his companions, for that the science of Ushul Fikih has undergone a very monumental development. This can be proven by the compilation of several great works of Ushuliyyun scholars in Islamic history. Like Imam Shafi 'I, Imam Ghazali, Al-Razy, Al-Juwaini, Ibn Qayim Al-Jauziyah and Imam Al-Syatibi they are great figures in Islamic history who paid serious attention to the discipline of Ushul Fiqh science. Ushul Fikih is a main stream that has become the pioneer of other branches of Islamic thought. Where Ushul Fiqh is a monumental and very urgent methodology. The ups and downs of a scientific discipline must exist, as well as the decline of ushul fiqh science today, it is strongly suspected that it is also due to the lack of relevance of the theoretical tools of Ushul Fiqh science in solving contemporary problems. In subsequent developments, Arkoun said that the Science of Ushul Fiqh experienced "taqdis al afkar al-Islamiy" or what is commonly referred to as the sacredness of Islamic sciences. Thus it can be understood that the Science of Ushul Jurisprudence underwent a process of cult and pemandekan. This paper tries to analyze comprehensively the existence of Ushul Fiqh science which continues to develop in line with the needs of the times. The integration of Ushul Fiqh science entities can produce Islamic law products that can dialectic with the times and according to human needs. Where the historical and human dimensions are very influential with classical Islamic sciences.
