When implemented, the systems of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and Islamic criminal jurisdiction have to ensure equality, justice and peace for humanity. Consequently, implementation of international or Islamic justice does not necessarily emphasise applying the power of law but rather, as well as possible, the power to achieve appropriate human rights principles, which can reach the heart of the international community as a whole. Giving priority to any concept of law, thus recognizing one concept over another, diminishes the value of international criminal justice and creates contradictions in the application of an impartial equal jurisdiction and basic philosophy of cultural attitudes. Therefore, when the ICC Statute was being drafted, there was a strong tendency to overlook the cultural context of law within the social structures of various nations. The chief purpose of this article is to look into the basic principles of the Statute and examine whether similar principles can also be found within Islamic criminal jurisprudence. The article indicates the ability of both systems to function together and increase the practical intensification of international criminal justice. The study also offers, in a homogenous manner, to expand the juridical relationship, seeking cooperation and accommodation between the two systems in order to modify, adapt, adjust or alter laws for the better understanding of justice and equality between nations around the world. Prevention of international crimes will not be achieved through Islamic or ICC jurisprudence, or through any other system of law, but solely by cultivating equal justice together with the spirit of love and mutual admiration. This is the only seed for the promulgation of the ethic of reciprocity or the celebration of the golden rule of humanity.
