“Whoever disbelieves in Allah after their belief — not those who are forced while their hearts are firm in faith, but those who embrace disbelief wholeheartedly — they will be condemned by Allah and suffer a tremendous punishment.”

– [Surah An-Nahl, Ayat 106]

As Muslims, we are familiar with common topics of Islamic law, such as issues on worship, family affairs, and financial responsibilities. However, at times, decoding the wisdoms and objectives for these seemingly rigid rulings have slipped out of our minds, or have, at most, barely been an afterthought. Understanding the philosophy that underpins Islamic law, will not only present us with clarity on the purpose and benefit of the Islamic legal system, it will also clear some misconceptions that revolve around The Shari’ah, and grant us a greater sense of appreciation and understanding towards the astute nature of God’s code of law.

Islamic law is designed to be effective and efficient in managing and distributing acquired benefits to individuals and to the community at large, all while seeking to prevent harm or any negative outcomes that will cause disruption to the peaceful and progressive life that is necessary for our development. The legal rulings and concepts that form this holistic system each play a crucial role in maintaining the balance of resources that help us sustain the progression of our civilization.

Supporting this philosophy of Islamic law, are several legal mechanisms that serve as guides in the process of comprehending the intended benefits and results of the Islamic legal framework. All of these tools and thought processes lead us to the overarching impetus of the divine legal system, derived from The Quran and The Sunnah.

Join us to discover the philosophy that encapsulates the wisdoms of Islamic law, and the tools of thought that work behind the scenes to achieve the objectives of the religion.
