Sharia Law

Sharia which is the body of Islam is actually "way" or "path". It is the lawful skeleton within which the both the public and private aspects of life are monitored for those following Islam as their religion. Sharia deals with all aspects of day-to-day life, including politics, economics, banking, business law, contract law, sexuality, and social issues. There is not a strictly codified uniform set of laws that can be called Sharia. It is more like a system of several laws, based on the Qur'an, Hadith and centuries of debate, interpretation and precedent. Extremist elements in the world justify their violent actions by taking the help of Sharia Law. Their interpretation of Sharia law is not the same as that of Quran and Hadith [28].
