Role Of Islam In Contemporary Iranian And Nigerian Politics
Number of pages:
7 pages in length. Islam's Sharia Law has a long reach into the political underpinnings of other Muslim nations, not the least of which includes Nigeria and Iran. The extent to which the guiding principles of Islamic jurisprudence are in need of restructuring within the context of contemporary Nigerian and Iranian politics is both grand and far-reaching; that much scholarly research has been applied to reaching viable resolution to specific issues that stand in the way of ironing out challenges speaks to ongoing debate over ijtihad (scriptural interpretation) liberalism and reform. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
