This book addresses Sharia-related issues that Malaysia has experienced in recent decades, especially since the 1970s when Islam became a more visible aspect of government policy.The quest for relevant answers to Shariah Law reform through ijtihad adn other issues of concern to society is bound to be a continuing preoccupation of every representative government in this country. This book is a modest contribution to this continuing search for balanced approaches to Sharia-related issues.
