Siyasah shar'iyah is a broad doctrine of Islamic Law which authorizes the ruler to determine the manner in which the Shari'ah should be administered. The ruler may accordingly take discreationary measure, enact rules and initiate policies as he deems are in the interest of good government, provided that no substantive principle of the Shari'ah is violated thereby.
