18 Aug Lots of Islamic Values Adopted by Indonesian’s Law

The values ​​of Islamic teachings are widely adopted in the application of law in Indonesia. Several laws and regulations in Indonesia, including the Sharia Banking Law, the Waqf Law, and the Zakat Law, originate from Islamic teachings. This proves that Islamic teachings are one of the guidelines for implementing law in Indonesia.

“In the future, of course, there are still many things that can be extracted from the sources of Islamic teaching law,” said the lecturer at the Department of Civil Law, Faculty of Law Unpad, Dr. Djanuardi, M.H.

This explanation was delivered by Djanuardi when he was a speaker at the Online Seminar “Islamic Teaching Values ​​in the New Normal Period in the Perspective of National and International Law” held by FH Unpad, Friday (14/8)

Apart from Djanuardi, the online seminar moderated by a lecturer at the Department of Economic Law, Faculty of Law Unpad, Dr. Helza Nova Lita, M.H., presented other speakers, namely Lecturer at the Department of International Law, Faculty of Law, Unpad, Dr. Idris, M.A.

Djanuardi explained that Islamic values ​​can contribute to the development of national law. This is based, Islamic teachings are very comprehensive and complete, so that they can provide guidance for all aspects of human life.

Meanwhile Idris explained that the values ​​of Islamic teachings are very relevant in the setting of international law. This is in accordance with the values ​​of Islamic teachings which give mercy to the universe (rahmatan lil ‘alamin). This rule is suitable to be applied in international legal arrangements in various different dimensions.

Idris gave an example, in the Koran Surah Al-Hujurat verse 13 is quite popular as the basis of international law. This verse contains several basic principles of international law, such as the principles of equality, brotherhood, friendship and cooperation in building world peace.

These principles, said Idris, are contained in the U.N. Charter of 1945 and various other international legal instruments. “The value implication of Islamic teachings can also be implemented in other international law provisions such as human rights / humanitarian regulations, sea law, air / space law, treaty law, and SDGs principles,” he explained.

Regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, the social restriction policy was actually taught by the Prophet Muhammad. In the hadith narrated by HR Bukhari and Muslim, the Prophet once reminded his followers not to enter a country that is infected with a disease. If the epidemic broke out in the country where Muslims are located, the Prophet also advised not to leave that place. “This hadith is the basis for the recommendation to lock down during an outbreak of infectious diseases in a country,” said Idris.
