Sharīʿa as Rule of Law

Sharīʿa as Rule of Law

(p.167) 5 Sharīʿa as Rule of Law
Religious Pluralism and Islamic Law

Anver M. Emon

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces and explains the analytic purchase of considering Sharīʿa as Rule of Law. The chapter addresses in inductive fashion various features of premodern Islamic law (e.g. curriculum, minstitutions of adjudication, and interpretive theories). It contrasts those features with the contemporary elements that contribute to the legal culture of modern states, and thereby contributes a historical dimension to the Rule of Law analytic framework developed in the Introduction and this chapter.

Keywords:   Rule of Law, Sharīʿa, curriculum, madrasas, history, nation-state
