Shariat courts in Britain

London, Sept. 14: Five shariat courts in Britain now have official powers to rule on Muslim civil cases, according to a report.  The rulings made by the five courts in London, Birmingham, Bradford, Manchester and Nuneaton in Warwickshire are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or high court, according to The Sunday Times.  The issues that the “official” shariat courts can rule on range from financial rows to divorce and domestic violence.

Two more shariat courts will be started in Edin burgh and Glasgow son, the report said. Till now, the rulings of shariat courts in Britain could not be enforced and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims. The shariat courts are run by Muslim Arbitration Tribunal, which was set up in 2007 to provide a viable alternative for the Muslim community seeking to resolve disputes in accordance with Islamic law. British Muslim scholar and lawyer Shaykh Faiz Siddiqi, chairman of the governing council of the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal, which deals with cases involving family disputes, forced marriages.

Narrated AbuHurayrah:
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to say: "O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from four things: Knowledge which does not profit, a heart which is not submissive, a soul which has an insatiable appetite, and a supplication which is not heard."
