Baru-baru ini di Malaysia, sebuah pertubuhan yang sering mempertikaikan Islam walaupun menggunakan Islam dalam nama pertubuhan mereka iaitu SIS (Sisters in Islam) menyarankan untuk menghapuskan sistem perundangan syariah di Malaysia. Ia adalah sesuatu yang memalukan, malang & menyedihkan sedang di waktu yang sama, semakin ramai non-muslims di United Kingdom memilih Mahkamah Perundangan Islam untuk mendapatkan keadilan. Di  Malaysia pula sebagai contoh, di waktu ramai orang Islam (melayu)  sendiri menentang usaha untuk mendaulatkan Islam & memilih cara hidup sekular, alhamdulillah pada masa yang sama masih ada golongan manusia-manusia yang gigih berjuang untuk melihat undang-undang Allah yang menjamin keadilan kepada semua manusia ditegakkan.
Moga Allah memberi keinsafan & membuka mata mereka-mereka yang menentang itu, sebab Islam tidak memerlukan manusia, tapi manusialah yang memerlukan Islam, wallahu alam.

According to various UK media outlets, non-Muslims are increasingly going to Shari’ah (Islamic law) courts for justice. The fact that non-Muslims are willfully using Shari’ah courts in the UK for adjudication in disputes should not be entirely surprising.[i]
There are two reasons for this. The first is that the UK justice system is failing its people:
  • The system is bringing justice in only 3% of offences committed.
  • Punishment is not changing the behaviour of repeat offenders.
  • The courts are still not equipped with powers to attack the problems which generate crime, with the result that they continue to send too many defendants to custody.
  • Courts continue to experience delays – 24% of prisoners are not delivered to court on time; 52% of civilian witnesses come to court and do not give evidence; 64% of prosecution witnesses come to court and do not give evidence. Files of evidence provided by police to prosecutors are on time and up to quality in only 43% of cases; and the preparation by prosecutors is effective in only 60% of cases.
  • 44% of fines are unpaid; up to 40% of community punishments are not served.[ii]
The second reason is that the Shari’ah is based upon a unique set of values. For example the Qur’an (the divine scripture upon which the Shari’ah law code is founded) resonates with teachings of justice,
.
“O You who believe! Be upholders of justice, bearing witness for God alone, even against yourselves or your parents and relatives. Whether they are rich or poor, God is well able to look after them. Do not follow your own desires and deviate from the truth. If you twist or turn away, God is aware of what you do.”
[iii]
.
“O You who believe! Show integrity for the sake of God, bearing witness with justice. Do not let hatred for a people incite you into not being just. Be just. That is closer to faith. Heed God [alone]. God is aware of what you do.”
[iv]
.
The two main terms used in the Qur’an for justice are ‘Adl and Qist. The literal meaning of ‘Adl is to divide into exactly equal parts so that there is no disparity between them. Qist means to be equal. Of course it would be difficult to apply these terms to the current situation in the Muslim world due to an absence of true political governance. Although ‘Adl and Qist are not witnessed in any considerable measure in the Muslim world today, Islamic history paints a different picture, one offers a better alternative to the gross corruption and abuse that we see today.
.
In Islamic history, where the unique values of Islam such as justice were propagated and implemented, the conclusions made by some historians are unparalleled. The Jewish historian Amnon Cohen states that the Jewish minorities sought justice from the Islamic courts rather than their own,“The Jews went to the Muslim court for a variety of reasons, but the overwhelming fact was their ongoing and almost permanent presence there. This indicates that they went there not only in search of justice, but did so hoping, or rather knowing, that more often than not they would attain redress when wronged…”
[v]
.
So it is no wonder that today there are a growing number of non-Muslims seeking justice via Islamic courts. It is difficult to think of a time in history when the host community of a population sought redress and justice from the courts of the minority. One can only imagine what it would be like if true Islamic governance was implemented in the Muslim world.
