Islamic laws

Islamic Laws

Islamic laws distinguish among:

Halal,
or that which is permitted by God the Law-Giver;
Mustahabb, that
which is loved by God but is not obligatory and is
rewardable;
Makruh, that which
is disliked, but is a lesser degree than Haram; and
Haram, that which is
prohibited. Anyone who engages in Haram is liable for
God’s punishment and in an Islamic State may be subject
to legal prosecution and discipline.

Some supportive issues include:

The
basic principle in Islamic law is that all things and
actions are allowed (Halal), except those which are
specifically prohibited by God.
Every thing or
action which is Haram is very harmful to the individual
and/or the family, community, etc.
Good intentions do
not make any Haram action acceptable.
Doubtful things are
best to be avoided.
Whatever leads to
Haram is in itself considered Haram.
God has prohibited
(as Haram) all killing (except for capital punishment),
stealing, robbing, consumption of any intoxicant, all
types of gambling, sex outside marriage, all types of
pornography and prostitution, homosexuality, wasteful
spending and consumption, interest on money (usury),
bribery, spreading gossip and backbiting. Additionally
art, music, movies, TV, books, or magazines that promote
any acts which are Haram are prohibited
