About This Resource

Knowledge Building Brief #1: Shari‘ah, Fiqh, and State Laws: Clarifying the Terms
discusses the differences between the concepts of Shari’ah, fiqh (jurisprudence), and Muslim family laws. Efforts towards reform need to recognise that Shari’ah is both divine and eternal (and not to be conflated with what we call Islamic laws), while fiqh and Islamic law—including contemporary Muslim family laws—are human-made and open to change.

Shari‘ah, Fiqh, and State Laws: Clarifying the Terms is also available in English and French.
