Chapter Summary

The principle of equality constitutes one of the most important principles of Islamic international law. The basic source of equality under Islamic international law is different from that of public international law. Islamic international law bases its international relations on the principle of peace between all nations and states. Islamic international law puts an important weight on the principle of reciprocal respect. Islamic international law places an important value on the principle of self-defence and the principle constitutes one of the most important policies of Islamic law for the protection of individuals and states. The principle of proportionality is one of those principles of Islamic international law which prevents acts of aggression and oppression in the case of self-defence. Diplomatic immunity and protection is regarded as one of the most predominant principles of the law for the development and consolidation of peaceful international relations between various nations.

Keywords: diplomatic immunity; equality; Islamic international law; public international law; reciprocal respect; self-defence
