From: Criminal Justice Today: An Introductory Text for the 21st Century

Answer:

Islamic law is a system of duties and rituals founded on legal and moral obligations that are sanctioned by the authority of a religious leader, who may issue commands that the faithful are bound to obey. Four aspects of justice include (1) a sacred trust, a duty imposed on humans to be discharged sincerely and honestly; (2) a mutual respect by one human being for another; (3) an aspect of the social bond that holds society together; and (4) a command from God. Items 3 and 4 are the ones most commonly invoked in Islamic jurisprudence and form the basis of criminal justice practice in many Middle Eastern countries.
