European Court to Decide if Islamic Sharia Law Can Override a Nation’s Civil Law

European Court to Decide if Islamic Sharia Law Can Override a Nation’s Civil Law
Can Islamic religious sharia law override a country’s domestic law in Europe? That’s a question the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights is weighing. 
The Court heard a case this week that involves applying sharia law to a disagreement between citizens of Greece who are Muslims. 
The non-profit organization based in London, Christian Concern, intervened in the case, “because of the importance of the case in European law and its implications for countries across Europe, including the UK,” according to a news release from the organization.

Having (gratefully) being taken under the wing of a legal Mufti for a decade of my life, having a decent grasp of the financial implications for widows regarding inheritance, I will do my best to provide a post later today.

If the European Court decides in favor of Shari'ah application - it will be a hard blow against Muslim women in the West.

I have had intense discussions with my Mufti colleague regarding women and basic and humane rights. Even he, has uncovered for me some of the difficulties faced by women residing within an Islamic gestalt.
