Compilation of Resources Over the past two decades, research and resources on women’s rights and Islam have proliferated from a variety of sources: academic circles, civil society organizations, governmental policy documents, intergovernmental agencies, etc. Yet the richness of the current stage of knowledge often remains unknown or inaccessible to those who seek to engage with advocacy and reform on topics related to these matters but are not familiar with Islamic studies and/or human rights standards. This document provides a pool of resources – including articles, book chapters, reports, videos, and international declarations and conventions – that are self-contained, accessible to non-specialists, and can be used in work related to women’s rights within Muslim family laws.

1st Issue Brief: Shari‘ah, fiqh and Islamic law (English)

Sunday, June 19, 2016

Shari‘ah, fiqh and Islamic law is part of a series of knowledge briefs for women’s rights activists to provide advocacy arguments and convey key ideas and concepts related to Muslim legal traditions in a simple and appealing way. The boundaries between some key terms such as Shari‘ah, fiqh and Islamic law are often blurred and confused in everyday language. This confusion contributes to gender inequality in modern family laws in ways that are detrimental to women. Attempts to reform state laws in the direction of justice and equality for women have been opposed by those who perceive them as going against Shari‘ah. It is essential to distinguish between these terms in order to set the divine and eternal apart from the human and temporal. This knowledge brief was produced under the UN Women Men and Women for Gender Equality Programme, Arab States Regional Office, funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
