Islamic courts
Oct 13th, 2008 at 2:40pm
 
Is it true that non-Muslims are considered by Islamic law to be inferior witnesses by default when testifying in court?

Probably the same rationale it was 1400 years ago. A non-believer isn't even honest to himself, by denying his maker, and therefore can't be trusted to render reliable reports.

What are 'Islamic Courts?'  What is their jurisdiction?

Oh man, I've read some irrelevant stuff in my time, but that almost takes the cake. Points for humour though! Imagine if the reverse was the case, oh the UPROAR!!!

No jurisdiction here............yet. But that will change if the muslims get their way, so be vigilant.

irrelevant perhaps in a secularist society and therefore regular court

but in Islamic courts it remains relevant- as it all centres around the belief in god & islam

Yes, I know that. 

Does the expression "Islamic Court" refer only to some sort of Tribunal determining matters about Islam, or does it mean the Civil/Criminal Courts in every Islamic country?>

well they have jurisdiction in countries that are run by shariah law. but from my understand there is no country that practices shariah law correctly.

I also believe many muslims reject shariah law because they believe it has been corrupted by man- that it is man's interpretation of god's word, instead of god's word itself.

In an  Islamic Caliphate it's simply called a "Court", not an Islamic court. But of course it rules by the Islamic Shari'ah. Christians and Jews are permitted to have their own civil courts, but not criminal courts.

Abu, just tell me in non Islamic terms.......are the Criminal/Civil Courts in for example, Qatar (being an Islamic Country) 'Islamic Courts' bound by this rule of preference in credibility to a Muslim over a non Muslim?
