Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the sources of Islamic international law but sources of public international law have also been focused on when they have been seen to be necessary. It examines the sources of both these legal systems and study if their principles are adaptable to one another. The intention is to find out whether they can be referred to in certain international conflicts with Islamic nations. The aim is to minimise any serious violation between the two legal systems with the chief purpose of achieving a peaceful settlement in international disputes. Consequently, the constitutional machinery of Islamic law differs from the constitutional machinery of other laws. The Qur&t; ¯an constitutes the prominent source of Islamic international law. Sunnah is the behaviour, collection of sayings and decisions of the Prophet of Islamconcerning different situations. Ijma constitutes one of the subsidiary sources of Islamic law.

Keywords: constitutional machinery; Ijma; Islamic international law; public international law; Qur&t; ¯an; Sunnah
