DEATH PENALTY IN SHARIA LAW

April 29th, 2014Posted by Islamic Sharia

Sharia Law has been considered by many people, irrespective of them being Muslims or Non Muslims, as a cruel law. One of the various criticism directed towards Sharia Law is with regards to death penalty in Islam.

Death Penalty Debate in Sharia Law

People have questioned the death sentence handed out to a guilty person for an offense that is punishable by death. Although every judicial system allows death penalty to be handed out for certain crimes; however, Sharia Law comes under special scrutiny. Perhaps, the reason is the ‘type’ of punishment rather than ‘why’. Islam expects the execution to be carried out as swiftly as possible and in a quick manner. Hence, beheading is used since it is considered the most efficient way to execute a person.

According to Sharia Law, murder is punishable by death. This means that murderer has to face death if he has killed an innocent person. However, Sharia Law permits the murderer to reconcile with the family of the victim if he feels guilty. He can ask them for forgiveness and in exchange for certain amount, the family of the victim can also choose to forgive the murderer. Islam lays great importance on forgiveness and also encourages its followers to be forgiving.

Stoning to death for Adultery

This is a topic that is up for debate even in present times. However, the basic understanding is that if a married man or married woman is found to be involved in adultery, they are to be stoned to death along with a certain number of lashes. For unmarried man or unmarried woman, they are to be punished by lashes.

This particular aspect of Sharia Law has received widespread criticism, especially from west. They consider this punishment to be quite harsh. However, this is the case because of lack of understanding about Sharia Law. The requirements to prove an act of adultery are quite strict. There need to be four adult witnesses to such an act and these witnesses should be able to testify that actual penetration took place. These requirements make it quite difficult to prove such an allegation.

Number of Deaths through Execution

Death toll through execution or death penalties in muslim countries, that follow Sharia Law, are low as compared to countries where modern judicial system is followed. The primary reason is again the requirements to be quite strict to prove an allegation and also the focus on forgiveness rather than revenge in religion.

ISLAM IN UK

April 29th, 2014Posted by Islamic Sharia

Islam is the fastest growing religion in world according to various estimates and surveys. It is the second largest religion, after Christianity, of the world. Hence, it comes as no surprise that Muslims make up for the second largest religious group of UK with an estimated population of around three million. Muslims are scattered all over UK and they represent a significant portion of UK’s current population. This makes it quite essential for Muslims to have religious freedom and also exercise their right to practice their religion in their daily lives. This also includes legal matters. Sharia Law, also known as Islamic Law, is to be followed by all practicing Muslims in legal matters.

Muslim  Sharia Law in Action

Sharia Law:

The basic difference between any modern judicial system and Sharia Law is primarily the scope and area that both these laws govern. While modern judicial systems focus on how individual behaves and acts in society, Sharia Law governs every aspect of an individual life. It is not limited to just society. Sharia Law covers minute details as well; such as, brushing teeth using a toothpaste while fasting.

 

Sharia Law in UK:

Since Sharia Law has quite a significant impact on Muslims and how they lead their lives, this makes it real important for them. In a developed country that is predominantly not a Muslim country, authorities have to hit the right balance between their current judicial system and Sharia law (Islamic Law). This becomes quite cucumber some. However, in recent times, Sharia Law has been applied where both parties are known to be Muslims and especially in issues such as property and marriage. Sharia Law has been implemented with help of Islamic Sharia courts, better known as Sharia Council.

Purpose of muslim sharia council

These councils play a vital role in implementing Sharia Law, especially in matters such as marriage, divorce and property. Although these councils do not have the right to impose their judgements on both the defendant and plaintiff but they play a significant role in resolving issues of Muslims in UK on basis of Islamic Law.

However, there is a widespread opinion about these councils and Sharia Law to be basically against women. Media in UK has tried and published various articles, opposing Sharia Law and its implementation in UK. Sharia Law basically requires very thorough understanding and only learned scholars can pass judgements on basis of Sharia Law due to the complexities involved. But this is gaining popularity in UK because of its efficiency and effectiveness amongst Muslim community.

Hence, everything is governed by Sharia Law. An adult Muslim can make his own     decisions if he has enough knowledge but several Muslims take advice from a learned Muslim scholar on different issues.

Rulings in Sharia Law:

Like every other judicial system, Sharia Law courts require a learned and expert judge to make rulings on various legal matters. Since it is quite expanded, hence it takes years for a person to become an expert in one aspect of Sharia Law. It does not simply mean that this person may also be an expert in any other field of Sharia Law.

And as with other  judicial systems, a ruling on a particular issue becomes a precedent and is applicable on all similar cases. However the term used for such a ruling in Islam is known as Fatwa. Only learned Islamic jurists are qualified to give out Fatwas.
