Debates on the subject of ijtihad have been continuous among reformers in Egypt, Syria and Tunisia since in the end of the nineteenth century. They intensified in the second half of the twentieth century, where many writings have appeared addressing the definition, conditions, necessities and applications of Ijtihad, including the qualifications of the mujtahideen, and other issues.
