Joseph Schacht born in Ratibor, 15 March 1902, died in Englewood, 1 August 1969. He was a Britsh-German professor of Arabic and Islam at Colombia University at New York. He was the leading Western scholar on Islamic Law, whose Origins Of Muhammadan Jurisprudence (1950) is still considered a centrally important work on the subject. He wrote articles in many version of Encyclopaedia of Islam and and also edited The Legacy Of Islam for Oxford University Press. Another his famous work is An Introduction to Islamic Law (1964). He manipulated people by his writing because he wrote only the bad side of Islam. He also influenced people not to trust Prophet Muhammad and His Companion.
