While reading this article, I cant help but think.Â Imagine a full blown Shariah court system in South Africa – Now before the anti-Islam crowd get defensive.Â I mean just courts for our own Muslim communities.
What I think will pose a bigger problem is not the non-Muslim’s fear or concern on this but rather many of South Africa’s ‘Muslim’ businessmen who have profiteered with anti-Islamic practices. From Riba to gambling to investing in haraam companies.Â That said, I’m positive that if this is built, it will gain popularity and bring us closer to the path of Haqq.

The Mujaahideen have established yet another Shariâ€™ah Court in Afghanistan and it has attracted large gatherings of Muslims in order to solve their issues; and the people want the Shariâ€™ah Court over the corrupt courts of the Murtadeen since it is the law of Allah which is Just. This is obviously frustrating the Disbelievers and Apostates because every day, more people are realizing their corruption and injustice and running towards those who will grant them justice, security and peace.
This is what is meant by â€œuplifting the word of Allahâ€ in the Jihaad. Establishing Shariâ€™ah and being just and fair.
May Allah preserve the Islaamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
Pakistan: Pro-Taliban militants set up Sharia courts in tribal area
Khar, 7 July (AKI/DAWN) – Pro-Taliban militants in Pakistan have established Sharia or Islamic courts in the Bajaur tribal region which borders Afghanistan.
A large number of people are believed to be waiting to use the courts established by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan in order to resolve disputes instead of waiting for action by the tribal administration.
The courts have been functioning for a couple of weeks in the Sewai area, about 20 kilometres northwest of Khar, the regional headquarters of Bajaur tribal region.
About two dozen ulema or Muslim legal scholars have been designated as Qazis or judges ruling in accordance with Sharia or Islamic religious law.
â€œWe have set up the courts in accordance with peopleâ€™s wishes,â€ said Taliban spokesman Maulvi Umar, adding that people were fed up with the previous legal system.
He said that the Qazis were â€œcompetent scholars well versed in Islamic jurisprudenceâ€.
According to a report on the Pakistani daily Dawn, people were seen going to courts with issues relating to monetary matters and land and family disputes, and women bringing complaints about ill-treatment by their husbands.
Some people visiting the court told Dawn that the judicial system under the Frontier Crimes Regulations (FCR) was oppressive and the courts run by the tribal administration were not able to provide them justice.
â€œThe Sharia courts are delivering speedy and cheap justice,â€ said Umar.
One man said that his dispute, which had been lingering for several years in a tribal administration court, had been decided by the Sharia court in a few days.
Maulvi Umar told journalists that people were approaching these courts voluntarily to get their long-standing disputes settled and the Taliban had not forced any litigant to go to the courts.
He said that inordinate delays in resolving disputes resulted in blood feuds which continued for decades.
â€œThe Sharia courts resolve these disputes speedily and in accordance with Islamic jurisprudence,â€ he said.
