In broad Islamic terms, Islamic Shariat means `Law of Islam`. Religiously, it consists of a set of injunctions, provisions and tenets, which dictate the ways to make life comfortable, contended, balanced and disciplined. The most significant source of Islamic law is Holy Quran, which was revealed to the last Prophet Hadrat Muhammad (Pbuh) in a period, spanning over 23 plus years, bit by bit, as per timely requirements in Mecca and Medina. Besides Holy Quran, Holy Traditions also serve as an important source of Islamic law. These Traditions are words of the Prophet (pbuh), which he spoke either in elaboration of a verse of the holy Quran or in exhortation or in response to queries presented to him by his companions and the common people, regarding various issues in theory and practice. Broadly speaking, Islamic law can be divided into some major heads, such as, ideology, belief, faith, morality, family, society, polity, economy, rewards, crime and punishment etc. Simply, Islamic law touches upon every aspect of life. It speaks at length, how to live in peace and integrity and how to strengthen the nation, society, community and the weaker sections in particular. Of all these, faith holds the most important place in Islamic law. To call a spade, faith is the foundation stone upon which, rests the grand edifice of religion, known as Islam. Present book is an authentic work on Islam. Prepared with utmost care by great researchers and scholars and verified by accredited theologians. This encyclopedic work covers every relevant item in a best possible and practical manner. It`s an asset for all scholars, researchers, students and knowledge seekers, with regard to Islam.
