Syed Muhammad Ayub Bukhari :
Islam is simultaneously a moral code and a secular dispensation. Its claim is that it has solution for mankind in what ever culture or clime they are. It has basic norms which are touch stone for validity of any irritant in a given society. It does not mean that Islam compels us to follows Arab's culture. If this was the imperative then the difficulty would be culture of which tribe to be followed because varieties of culture among Arab are as numerous as the number of tribes. It is available in the Sunnah of Holy Prophet that he adopted an existing element of a particular culture when ostensibly that element was supposed to be an irritant in a puritan society. It was both in case of jubilance and sorrow i.e. when the holy Prophet Madina for the first time he was welcome by a group of young girls beating drums which the fundamental is now do not accept as an Islamic act secondly when he came back from Ohd to Medina lamentations were audible even more than hundred meter distance from the extreme of town. The limitations were by the ladies whose men were martyred in the battle field of Ohd; the holy Prophet stopped and bade that he will not enter the town as long as he does not hear lamentation mourning Hamza assassination. But the fundamentalist of today says that the mourning of dead is heretic. These are the routine matters which are make bone of contention by the clerics of different denominations resulting in tragic event often witnessed in Muslim society in Pakistan and particularly during Moharram. It is not for offence or flattery to any site yet it is an instance which shows that interpretation of Sharia has so far not been available in unanimity in these more than fourteen centuries. A group of clergies insist that whatever in Saudi Arabia i.e. is sharia and other say that whatever is in UAE that is Sharia and the rest maintain whatever is in Iran that is Sharia. In my view Sharia for Pakistan is which does not offend basic human values as prevalent in our own culture in different zones. We are not answerable to anyone or any state; our transferability is only to Allah and the holy Prophet. For us the decrees and addict of those who have gone by and no binding authority may be they have some persuasive value. If there is any class of clerics who intent to make a submit to someone who is not living (except the holy Prophet) as our final legislator or arbiter it will not be an Islamic demand no group of individual and no individual has the authority to compel us to frame or formulate our culture according to his or their inhibitions. Constitution of Pakistan is very vocal to have the laws consistent with the Qur'an and Sunnah. There is very significant and important departure from the constitution of 1956 because the mandate of that constitution was Qur'an and Sunnah as interpret it by each sect. The framers of 1973 Constitution consciously and rightly rid the injunctions of Islam to be interpreted in sectarian bias. Those who are raising claimer that they are should be Sharia they mean Sharia of their choice and the mandate of Quran and Sunnah.
Religious decree: ‘Constitution completely in line with Sharia’
Govt obtains fatwa from cleric Rafi Usmani to preempt demands for enforcement of Sharia by Taliban.
