The social values of human life vary from society to society and culture to culture. However there are some values that have been universally recognized throughout the human history. The protection of life and property is one of them. In addition, Islamic Law regards the protection on the religion and the sanctity of the family as one of the fundamental creed of islam. This Islamic Criminal Law, an important branch of the shariah, addresses these basic societal needs in a comprehensive and rational manner.

This book discusses the principles of Islamic Criminal Law in its modern context and will prove to be a valuable reference for legal practitioners and the general reader.

The author, Prof. Dr. Anwarullah, is an Islamic legal specialist attached to the Ministry of Religious Affairs, Brunei Darussalam.
