Shari'a Law and the Modern Nation State:

A Malaysian Symposium

Norani Othman (ed)

This is a collection of papers presented at a symposium of Muslim social activists in Kuala Lumpur in 1992 to attempt to grapple with the question of how should an Islamic state be run. While the Prophet Muhammad experimented with a model that recognised the needs of both Muslims and non-Muslims, the less flexible model of the 'Western state' has today tended sideline the openness of early Muslims. In addition there are big differences in time and context between the Medina city state and where Muslims find themselves today. 160 pages with an index.
