The Shariah: Islamic Rule of Law

Shariah, or Islamic law, is the centerpiece and backbone of Islam. It's principles are based on the Qur’an & Sunnah.

The rules of Islamic law provides all that which is necessary for a person's spiritual and physical well-being. As a Muslim one is obliged to follow the Shariah with great care. We have included the Shariah within our site to help our Disciples perform their obligatory duties with correct due care and attention.

Islamic law is divided into two main sections:

Acts of worship Human interaction
Principle Beliefs

Financial transactions

Purification (Wudu)

Endowments

Prayer (Salah)

Laws of inheritance

Fasting in Ramadhan (Sawm)

Marriage, divorce, death and child care

Charity (Zakah)

Food and Drink

Pilgrimage (Hajj)

Penal punishments

 

Warfare and peace

  Judicial matters

Fiqh, literally understanding of details, expands on the basic principles set out in the Shariah. There are four schools of fiqh named after the exceptional scholars who derived the finer details, all of which conform with the Qur'an & Sunnah.

  1. Hanafi : Named after Imam Abu Hanifa, 702-767 CE
  2. Hanbali: Named after Imam Ahmed ibn Hanbal 778-855 CE
  3. Maliki: Named after Imam Malik ibn Anas, 717-801 CE
  4. Shafi: Named after Imam Muhammad Idris al-Shafi, 769-820 CE

It should be noted that Imam Malik, Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Shafi' and Imam ibn Hanbal all embraced Sufism, tasawwuf. It has been narrated from Imam Malik that:

"'He who practices sufism without learning the shariah corrupts his faith, while he who learns Shariah without practicing sufism corrupts himself. Only he who combines the two reaches his goal."

FOLLOW ONE OF THE FOUR IMAMS

It is Wajib to follow ONE of the four Imams of fiqh. This is known as Taqleed Shakhshi. It should be noted that one cannot mix & match the various rules and should only follow the rulings of any one Imam.

The Islamic Law listed on this site has been taken from "Rules of Islamic Law" by Moulana Shams-ud-din Amjad. It is based upon the Hanafi school of Fiqh.
