Abstract

Sanford H. B ederm an Georgia State College The Koran, a religious doctrine as well as a legal code, has exerted infinite influence on the people who have accepted it as their way of life. The life cycle of a Muslim is guided in one way or another by the direct sayings of the Koran or the subsequent traditions or Hadiths which evolved to delineate further vague statements made by M uhammed or his immediate successors. The Koran and the Hadiths (which together form the Shari'a tell prim arily how Allah should be worshipped, so that the believer might prepare himself for paradise. For this same reason, rules on civil and social activities such as m arriage, divorce, property, inheritance, trusts (w aqfs), crime and justice are also rigidly presented. The Shari'a also contains specifics on how agricultural practices and uses of land and water should be carried on. The purpose of this paper is to examine these practices in the light of K oranic law; for the utilization of land and water forms the most im portant bridge between the Muslim and his environment, and Islamic law is a profound acknowledgment of the need to regulate these
