Discouraged 5. Forbidden Sharia comprises three basic elements: 1. Aqidahconcerns all forms of faith and belief in Allah, held by a Muslim. 2. Fiqhgoverns the relationship between man and his Creator (ibadat) and between man and man (muamalat). Political, economic, and social activities fall within the ambit of muamalat.

1. There are different interpretations of the sharia law, which vary between cultures (Hussain 18). As well, there are different perspectives, which look at each of the interpretation of sharia law. Regardless of these interpretations and perspectives, different Muslims have the same opinion that “sharia is a reflection of God’s will for human kind” (Hussain 47). Because of its reflection, sharia should therefore, be perfect and any changes should only be done to reflect the will of God more perfectly. The sharia law is broad and has been divided into different sections. This particular law has two primary sources. The precept as outlined in the Quran is the first source (Sunnah) while the examples demonstrated by Prophet Mohammed forms the second source (Hussain 13). In most cases, sharia law is interpreted by Islamic judges because they have more knowledge of the law and are specialized in this field.

1. What is Sharia? Sharia in Arabic means “the way,” and does not refer to a body of law. Sharia is more accurately understood as referring to wide-ranging moral and broad ethical principles drawn from the Quran and the practices and sayings (hadith) of Prophet Muhammad.
2. Is it true that Sharia does prescribe harsh punishment for acts such as adultery? I want to caution against reducing Sharia to just one or two legal principles and picking out certain punishments as being characteristic of Sharia.
3. Is Sharia anti-women? Most definitely not. The Quran recognizes the absolute equality of men and women as human beings and proclaims that they are each other’s partners in promoting the common good.
4. At least nine states in America have passed “foreign law” statutes banning Sharia in American courts. What was behind the fear? Is Sharia law being implemented anywhere in America?

1. What is shari’a? ‘Shari’a’ is a term used in multiple ways by Muslims. It can be used to refer to correct Islamic behaviour in matters that Western legal eyes would classify as ‘law’ (such as commercial or criminal matters).
2. What are its basic sources? The primary difference between Islamic law and other legal systems, like codified law or our own common law, is that the legislator, the originator of law, is God.
3. Is there space for diversity and change in Islamic law? If we understand fiqh as the various interpretations and rulings produced by humans to discern God’s will, we can see that Islamic law has an inbuilt capacity for diversity and development.
4. What about the harsh punishments for crimes? Shari’a, as we’ve seen, covers a vast range of human behaviour beyond issues we in the West would identify as ‘law’.
5. What’s the position of women in Islamic law? The position of women in shari’a is another area of intense debate. Many non–Muslims assume that women are put in an inherently subordinate position – symbolised by the infamous claim that a woman’s testimony is worth only half that of a man’s.
6. What do shari’a councils do in the UK? Now let’s turn to Islamic law in Britain. Considering all the negative stereotypes about shari’a, unsurprisingly the notion that Islamic law may be present here creates great fear and anger.
7. How should we respond to shari’a councils and what about religious freedom? So what should be done about shari’a councils? The Home Office commission recognised that shari’a councils are meeting a need in the Muslim community.
