Islamic Fiqah and Jurisprudence

A proportional, interdisciplinary history of the related nomadic life, Arabs were living according to their tribe patterns wallowed in ignorance, pressing the poor and extolling the rich. They were not introduced with the civil manner; it was the time when Muhammad (saw) the son of Abdullah who was known for his honesty and truthfulness vowed to bring about reforms with Devine guidance .The whole society met with drastic change. The one who were the exploiter of human rights became the strong advocate of human rights. They were ready to die at a single call of Prophet (saw).  Muhammad reached at his level of self-actualization attained the cave of Hira propagated new Sharia which abrogated the old shrias of old prophets’ .He proclaimed himself the prophet of Allah at the age of 40.he rendered solution to every problem of humanity . The expansion of Islam reached beyond the Arab world. the time came by and Muslim got strength and became one the most powerful nation not of peninsula rather the whole world was singing the praise of this nation .Setting the curriculum for the world and new conspicuous trend by Muslim paved the way for the world in the field of natural sciences, art and craft, which Europe owes too much to Muslim and Islamic civilization finally met decadence due to slothfulness and sluggishness of its descendant who never bothered their predecessors’ grandeur and glory which crafted it way to Spain , Africa ,Rom and Asia .

Unconcerned with the might of Islamic world, the Muslims consequently met with unprecedented repercussion of their vulnerable policies and paradigm nexus to the capricious change in the world which resulted in the fiasco of Muslim glory .following the Muslim leader fall prey to imperialistic design of imperial states.

An earnest desire is felt for another Imam Abu Hanifa to codify the Islamic laws to drag out Muslims from the present quagmire and give impetus to fight against the challenges of 21st century

The story of Islam in 20th and 21st century is one the exponential growth with increase in diversity in culture, demography and geographical boundaries but it could not bind its followers into a single nation as dreamt by Allama Iqbal. Defining the idiosyncrasies of Muslim Ummah, Allama does not confine Muslim nation to a limited concept of a nation living in a demarcated boundary rather the whole Muslim Ummah living in different geographical boundaries constitutes a single nation but the present century presents the grim picture of Muslim Ummah who are split into  various races, creeds ,tribes and stratum.

The time to move the debate on is long overdue. The questions to be asked should

no longer be: “Is Islam compatible with the West? Can Muslims be British Citizens? Do Muslims want to engage with society? Rather, the questions that need to be asked are: “What are the challenges of multiculturalism? Is the playing

Field level? Does British society cater for the legal and political recognition of

Minority groups.

Fiqh and its compilation:-

The victorious advancement of Muslim armies transversely the inter-connecting island of Asia, Europe and Africa were annexed under the Islamic Empire and the large ample of people who were previously Christian, Zoroastrian, Buddhist or Hindu. Converted to the new faith although with snail’s pace but this change was substantially vibrant in nature and resilient in influencing the environs.

The inhabitants of these territories were given the choice to live autonomously by paying the tax as realized Jazia in Islamic laws and in return they would seek protection from Muslim rulers and other invaders and they would be ensured to enjoy the fundamental rights.

the reign of Omar bin Abdul Aziz (717-719) proved to be fruitful due to expansionist design over the hearts of people not on the physical territories which resulted in the widespread conversion of masses into the realm of Islam due to the fact that all the taxes were withdrawn. Muslim and non muslim minorities enjoyed equal rights given by the state.
