Shariah means ‘way’ or ‘path’. It is the religious law of Islam, a way of life, based on the Quran (words of God) interpreted by Muslims and actions from the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). It is a code of conduct with Islamic principles to help guide Muslims the moral way of living. This 'law' is not a legal system. 37
