Human Dignity and War: the Islamic Perspective

The protection of human life and respect for human dignity are the basis of the teachings of Muslim religion.

War, which threatens this life, and practices that interfere with this dignity, are forbidden by rules of Muslim Law or the Shari'a.

We will begin our report with a general presentation of the rules of Muslim Law or the Shari'a (I). Then, recalling the rules of this Law we will consider the categories of different countries in Muslim Law (II), looking in particular at rules forbidding interference with human dignity (III). Finally we will provide a practical example of respect for human dignity in action through articles from 1990 Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam (IV).

Religion and the law in Syria

par Razi A. Diab Esq
There is a common denominator between law and religion: The idea of a norm. Religion defined as an obligation ensuing from a contract with God, is the group of norms which govern the relationship between mankind and God. Law is the set of rules which govern the relationship between the people. The study of the relationship between law and religion could be done by the scholar from different angles, probably the most interesting for a jurists, is to study to what extent does religion influence the law and whether religion form a source of the law.

Presentation of The Islamic International Court of Justice

by Mohammed Amin Al-Midani, president of ACIHL
The majority of International Organizations function with their own courts of justice. When the 3rd Conference of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Islamic States adopted the Charter of the Islamic Conference Organization (I.C.O) in 1972, however, a judiciary court was not incorporated. The Islamic International Court of Justice was in fact not created until the 5th Islamic Summit of 1987. The Summit amended the Charter of the I.C.O. at that time, incorporating and defining the missions of the Court.
