Abstract:

This is an extensive and far-reaching examination of Sharia law and its incompatibility with Western-derived concepts of human rights. Bringing together a collection of recent essays, this volume elucidates, unapologetically, Sharia's defining Islamic religious principles and the consequences of its application, with a focus on contemporary settings. A wealth of unambiguous evidence is marshalled, distilled, and analysed - including objective, erudite studies of Sharia by leading scholars of Islam; the acknowledgement of Sharia's global resurgence; and the plaintive warnings of contemporary Muslim intellectuals, believers and freethinkers alike, about the incompatibility of Sharia with modern concepts of human rights.
