For Muslims and non-Muslims alike, much is read into this term, often with scant regard for its historical, cultural or theological underpinnings. The politics of identity has a profound effect on contemporary life, both secular and religious, and this includes our understandings of the shari\'a. Yet at the core of this concept, for Muslims, is the quest for a moral compass by which to navigate a path through life (Qur\'an, 45:18), informed deeply by revelation and its interpretation by the Prophet Muhammad as well as his closest Companions. Built on this foundation is an ongoing human endeavour to grasp and lend expression to that teaching--elaborately in law, but no less so in devotional, ethical and customary practices in diverse Shi\'i and Sunni Muslim communities, including in the West. -- Provided by publisher.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4839282691#Person\/sajoo_amyn_b<\/a>> ; # Amyn B.
