  2. Muslim or Islamic law*, both civil and criminal justice as well as
    regulating individual conduct both personal and moral. The *custom-based
    body of law based on the Quran and the religion of Islam*. Because, by
    definition, Muslim states are *theocracies*, *religious texts are la*w,
    the latter distinguished by Islam and Muslims in their application, as
    Sharia or Sharia law."[6]
    - "a discussion on the *duties of Muslims*," —Hamilton Alexander
    - "*a long, diverse, complicated intellectual tradition*," rather than a
    "well-defined set of specific rules and regulations that can be easily
    applied to life situations," —Hunt Janin and Andre
    - "a shared opinion of the [Islamic] community, based on a *literature
    that is extensive, but not necessarily coherent or authorized by any
    body*," —Knut S.

    The* primary sources of Islamic law* are the Qur'an and
    Certain Sharia laws are regarded as divinely ordained, concrete, and
    timeless for all relevant situations. It also has laws derived from
    principles established over time by Islamic lawyers.

    Mainstream Islam distinguishes between *fiqh* (deep understanding,
    discernment), which refers to the i*nferences drawn by scholars*, and *
    Sharia*, which refers to the *principles that lie behind the **fiqh*.
    Scholars hope that *fiqh* (jurisprudence) and *Sharia* (law) are in harmony
    in any given case, but they cannot be sure.

    *In Summary;*

    1. It is a custom based law derived from the Quran, the religion of Islam,
    complicated Islamic religious tradition, extensive but incoherent literature
    and discussions on the duties of Muslims.

    2. Sharia deals with many aspects of life, including
    , politics ,
    economics ,
    banking ,
    contracts, family ,
    sexuality ,
    hygiene , and
    social issues.Dr Kiome Muketha
