However after the passing away of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and expansion of Islam as religion in other parts of the world, new and different matters were encountered by Muslim Leaders that were not originally covered or explained in either Quran or Sunnah. This required the usage of Ijma and Qiyas. Although, most of the Muslim scholars admit on Qiyas being a source of Shariah Law; however, there are reservations about the laws laid out through Qiyas. Qiyas is basically analogical reasoning by an individual so many muslim jurists feel that any law laid out through qiyas may be open for debate.

Shariah Law in Islam has significant importance along with legal law in Muslim countries. Few Islamic countries have tried to merge Shariah law with Legal law, trying to find a middle ground. However, this limited approach to Shariah Law is controversial.
