The meaning of Al-Siyasah Al-Shar`iyyah

Q 5: What is meant by Al-Siyasah Al-Shar`iyyah?

A: Al-Siyasah Al-Shar`iyyah is policy that is based on the Qur'an and Sunnah, by the ruler administering justice and the subjects giving loyalty and obedience. It is explained by the Words of Allah (Exalted be He): Verily, Allâh commands that you should render back the trusts to those to whom they are due; and that when you judge between men, you judge with justice. Up to His Saying: O you who believe! Obey Allâh and obey the Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
