The Legislation Of Islam
Because scholarly lectures are among the best means of clarifying realties, bringing out the virtues of the things that is being spoken of, and expounding upon it, I felt that it would be befitting to make the topic of my lecture this evening: “The Legislation of Islam – its Virtuous Qualities and its Necessity for Humanity.”
I have selected this topic due to its great importance, as is well known. For verily, study of the Islamic Legislation (Sharee’ah) and what relates to its virtues, its benefits, its concern for the servants (of Allah), and its necessity, is a great matter. The need for it (the Islamic Legislation) is very serious. Seeking to understand this and giving much attention to it is from the most important of matters. Therefore, due to the importance of this topic and the great need for increasing the understanding and insight concerning it, I decided that it should be the topic of this lecture. So with this, it should be clear to my brothers who are listening that this lecture is divided into two parts:
The first of them is, “The Islamic Legislation and its Virtuous Qualities.”
The second of them is, “The Necessity of the Islamic Legislation for Humanity.” I will address both issues in my speech, if Allah wills.
