    Sharia, or sharia law, is the Islamic legal system derived from the religious precepts of Islam, particularly the Quran and the Hadith. The term sharia comes from the Arabic language term sharīʿah, Arabic: شريعة‎ which means a body of moral and religious law derived from religious prophecy, as . This is an apt publication for modern times, in which 'Sharia' has become a byword for an unacceptable social system, and is vilified as such; when crime is rife in communities governed by Sharia; and when in the non-Islamic West, the Islamic social and criminal justice systems are subject to intense public scrutiny and criticism, but remain little understood.

    Sharia law is used in some countries as a reason to retain capital punishment.

Book I -Generalities Chapter 1 -General Articles Article 1-Islamic Criminal Law is about determination of various offences and the punishments and the security and rehabilatory measures which will be applied to the offender. Article 2-Every action or omission of an action for which there is a punishment in law, will be regarded as an offence.
