Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with some of the basic principles of Islamic international law and analyses them with the principles of public international law which have long been recognised in international relations of states.The nature of both systems of international law is discussed side by side to present both laws simultaneously and also to emphasize that even though their sources have different bases and methods of application, their aims, more or less, coincide with each other for the peaceful implementation of the rules of the international legal community and the peaceful settlement of international disputes. The chapter is also devoted into some of the general philosophies of both systems and their jurisprudential value. It has a leading function in the presentation of some of the issues arising from the misinterpretation of both systems within the international legal and political community as a whole.
