Universal declaration of human rights and the shariah; A case of “the radical muslim” in Ghana


Mumin Mashood, Hamid Mashood

The researchers adopted the black letter law methodology to make a comparative study on the law, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Islam (with focus on the shariah). It was observed that the Islamic rules on fundamental human rights adopted about fourteen hundred years (1400) ago, following the emergence of Islam are no different to those enshrined under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. There is no doubt that some people might hide behind the concept of shariah to perpetuate injustice but the fact also remains that this, respectfully, does not represent the true state of Islamic Laws. It was therefore humbly concluded that the world should carefully reconsider its view on shariah, as Islamic laws has more to offer towards the general development of legal jurisprudence of the world most especially, on the rules of fundamental human rights.
