Comparative Law: The Islamic Legal System
The Johns Hopkins University

Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies
Professor Mohamed Mattar

Fall 2011

Course Description:
Unlike the American legal system, which is secular, the Islamic legal system is of a religious nature. Islam is both a religion and a social order. As such, it comprises rules concerning devotional obligations as well as rules regulating civil and commercial relations. According to Islamic beliefs, these two types of rules are of a divine origin. The origins of Islamic law, its sources, and various schools of Islamic jurisprudence will be discussed as an introduction to the course.
The course will explore several substantive areas of Islamic law, including: constitutional law; banking law and insurance; international law; crimes and punishments; marriage, divorce, and child custody; and succession and wills. These areas will be examined through a study of various cases where Islamic law has been debated in American courts. The course will also focus on human rights in the Islamic legal tradition and in the contemporary Islamic world, especially in countries of the Middle East. Concepts of human rights, women’s rights, and minority rights in Islam will be analyzed in light of international human rights standards. Students will participate in debates in which they will approach different problems representing different schools of the Islamic legal thought.
Students will be asked to select five out of the twelve suggested projects. They will prepare a 1-2 page memo to be submitted before class to my teaching assistant Ms. Julia Braunmiller ( Students will also be asked to choose a book on Islam, Muslims, and the West that was published after 9/11 and write a 10-page book review which is due the last day of the exam period.
