Training Summary

Mr. Mohamed Keshavjee an international cross-cultural specialist on mediation, with a focus on Islamic Law leads the webinars and we are looking very much forward to presentation.

 The role of Sharia in alternative justice within diasporic Muslim communities in Western countries has sparked speculation and controversy. The question of how Muslims resolve interpersonal disputes outside the adversarial legal system raises concerns about individual, communal, women’s, and children’s rights. The lecturer, a respected cross-cultural mediation specialist, emphasizes that there isn’t a single interpretation of Sharia or a uniform mediation model used by all Muslim communities worldwide.

 

Muslims’ alternative dispute resolution (ADR) practices are influenced by various legal systems, including national laws, religious laws, customary practices, and modern mediation conventions. The lecture briefly discusses Sharia and its specific interpretation known as fiqh, as well as how family mediation emerged in the UK Muslim community due to necessity (darura) and public interest (maslaha) – two key Sharia principles that address social needs.

The lecture also touches on Maqasid al Sharia, the higher purposes of Islamic law, highlighting that mediation is a contemporary manifestation of these principles.
