Abstract

In June 2010, this writer participated at the plenary session of the Constitution Commission of Somalia and made presentations on various aspects of the shari'ah and how the relevant parts of shari'ah could be articulated in the proposed constitution. During the first two days, models of 13 Muslim countries and their respective constitutions were discussed at considerable length. The focus of this writer was on briefing the Commission on references to Islam and the shari'ah that are found in the constitutions of Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Jordan, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia and Oman. The provisions of these constitutions and their references to Islam bear a great deal of uniformity yet are also different in some ways.
