Perspective from Shariah on Legal and Human Rights  
Yusuf Abdul Azeez

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to examine concepts of Legal and Human Rights from the perspective of Shariah. The discussion is divided into three components, the first of which focuses on the origins, nature and development of Legal and Human Rights law(s) in the Shariah perspective.  The second part discusses debates and declarations on Legal and Human Rights in modern times, while the third evaluates the role and impact of Shariah in the implementation and execution of Legal and Human Rights provisions by modern society. This is done with a view to highlight the dynamic nature of Islamic Legal and Human Rights systems that establish distinctly energetic Legal and Human Rights provisions and values for mankind.  

Keywords:  Shariah; Legal and Human Rights; Modern Society; Mankind; Human Being
