Yet it is impossible to say that this discipline, which is a prerequisite for the students of Islamic law, has received the attention it deserves. It can be said that the most important way of exploring the basic structure and evolution process of a discipline is to analyze the literature produced by those who specialize on that discipline. Literature of Usul al-Fiqh is analyzed in relevant works by dividing into three categories
