The history of Islam traces back to the first couple that dwelled on the surface of earth. According to the divine books Bible, Torah and Zubur; Adam and Eve were sent from the paradise to start a new life on this planet. They are referred as Hazrat Adam and Hazrat Bibi Hawwa in Quran respectively. Since then, a proper code of conduct was given to them and their children depending on the conditions they lived in. It changed with passing time, until Muhammad was sent to the earth. Muslim Sharia was implemented during and by Prophet Muhammad, who is the last messenger from Allah Almighty. This Sharia will not be amended and thus it is obligatory upon every follower of Islam to believe in it.
Muslim Sharia is based on the Holy Quran which was revealed to Muhammad. It has a total of 30 chapters. Each Surah deals with a different aspect such as anecdote of a messenger or an important aspect of human’s life. For example, there is a specific Surah Baqara (meaning Cow) which tells the tale of a man who had a cow. Similarly there are several Surahs which deal with the concept of justice, day, night, elephant, and ants and so on. A concise description of Quran is understood with the help of Sunnah. Sunnah is the second source of Sharia after Quran.
Ijma and Qiyaas aid in understanding Sharia when the answers need more description. Only religious scholars with plenty of authentic knowledge can take part in it. The practical implementation of Muslim Sharia was found during the reign of Muhammad and his four closest companions in Medina about 1400 years ago.
Muslim Sharia gives equal rights to each and every citizen. It discourages discrimination and provides justice. If implemented properly, it is able to eradicate corruption and poverty completely. The family laws ensure that the children are taken care of in a secure and safe environment so that they can play an active role in the development of society. Women and elderly are given due respect. Even the captives and prisoners are given right to educate themselves. Nowadays none of the Islamic country has implemented Muslim Sharia completely.
Acts of terrorism and corruption are strictly prohibited in Islam. According to Muslim Sharia, if a man kills another man then it is equivalent to killing the whole humanity. Even then, Muslim Sharia encourages the arbitrators to settle the disputes between the enemies. It is better to forgive the criminals so that they may learn to live a peaceful life. Only a righteous person can play the role of a judge. The children are taught to display manners and treat the people around them with respect. The role of a mother is significant in the upbringing of her children, but it does not stop her from pursuing her career.
Muslim Sharia depicts a perfect lifestyle for any person residing on earth. It gives them equal rights and encourages a progressive thinking process. Cleanliness, etiquettes, justice, employment, business dealings, education and even war times are addressed properly in it. Hence, it is a complete and concise guideline.
