Abstract:

This chapter discusses the limited application of Sharīʻah under the constitution of Nigeria. It explains the rationale behind the present status by tracing the history and nature of the Nigerian state as well as the applicability of Sharīʻah in colonial Nigeria. It then focuses on the application of Sharīʻah in the immediate post-independence Nigeria as well as the Great Debate on the constitutional status of Sharīʻah in Nigeria since the 1970s. The example of Nigeria shows that it is possible for Muslim states to separate religion from the state, respect constitutionally guaranteed human rights, and comply with international human rights conventions while practicing the Muslim religion.
