"Law Giving verses of Quran and Sunnah" Compilation by Mr. Zia- Ur- Rehman, Addl; District & Sessions Judge, Director Instructions-II KP Judicial Academy

  The Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan 1973, by virtue of Art 2-A and Art 227, sets platform for Islamization of the Laws. Accordingly, not only new enactments were introduced but some of the existing laws were also amended so as to bring them in conformity with Injunctions of Islam. Promulgation of Hadood Laws, Qisas and Diyat, Family Laws, Preemption Law, Qanoon-e-Shahadat etc and amendments in many others is result of the said process. Islamic law, besides providing substantive rights also gives comprehensive procedural mechanism for enforceability of the rights.
  The legal fraternity has always been in need of a refrencer | a’ handbook for tracing law giving provisions of Islam. However, basic knowledge of the Islamic Jurisprudence and sources of the law is a must for such an endeavor. Having this perspective in mind the compilation in hand was aimed at. The Holy Quran and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) are the only two agreed upon sources of law by all the famous and renowned schools of thoughts. There are almost five hundred (500) verses of the Holy Quran which provide laws and legal principles and only almost two hundred and thirty (230) verses amongst them are relevant to enforceable rights and administration of justice. These verses have been categorized in this compilation under different heads, Civil, Criminal, Family, Adjudication etc by further classifying them into sub-heads of the existing enactments.
However, subjects of Governance, Fiscal matters and International Law have not been included in this work. Further, an attempt has been made to cite law giving traditions | Ahadith under the relevant heads and sub heads. For Ahadith, the most authentic compilations Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim were resorted to. A brief introduction of Islamic Jurisprudence and of the two compilations of Ahadith has also been given. This effort will help the judicial officers and members of the bar in tracing the Laws of Islam by referring to the original text.
