Summary Whatever their opinions on abortion in any given situation, a vast majority of Jewish thinkers agree that decision-making with respect to abortion must be left in the hands of the woman involved, who may consult her husband, her physician, and her rabbi. The issue of abortion in Jewish life is both complex and multi-faceted, with roots going back to the Bible. Its complexity is due, in large measure, to the reluctance of Jewish legal authorities to establish a single principle by which to determine the morality of abortion. Within the context of an overriding Jewish concern for the sanctity of human life, legal authorities have relied largely on individual cases and derivative legal concepts in determining when an abortion may take place. Especially during the 20th century, the increased diversity of traditions and practices within the Jewish community has naturally led to a diversity of approaches to the abortion issue. Nonetheless, out of this complex diversity a clear, general concept can be adduced from the centuries of Jewish tradition; and it is that concept which this article will address. But if other damage ensues, the penalty shall be life for life….

Traditional theory of Islamic jurisprudence recognizes four sources of Sharia : the Quran, sunnah authentic hadith , qiyas analogical reasoning , [note 1] and ijma juridical consensus. Classical jurisprudence was elaborated by private religious scholars , largely through legal opinions fatwas issued by qualified jurists muftis.
It was historically applied in Sharia courts by ruler-appointed judges , who dealt mainly with civil disputes and community affairs. In the modern era, traditional laws in the Muslim world have been widely replaced by statutes inspired by European models. The role of Sharia has become a contested topic around the world. Jan Michiel Otto distinguishes four senses conveyed by the term sharia in religious, legal and political discourse: .

In recent years, the norms and expectations that once ensured that our government was guided primarily by the public interest rather than by individual or partisan interest have significantly weakened. There are now far fewer constraints to deter abuse by executive branch actors. This report focuses on two distinct areas: the growing politicization of government science and research and the breakdown of processes for filling key government positions. Objective data and research are essential to effective governance and democratic oversight.
But over the last few decades, the safeguards meant to keep government research objective and publicly accessible have been steadily weakening. Recent administrations have manipulated the findings of government scientists and researchers, retaliated against career researchers for political reasons, invited outside special interests to shape research priorities, undermined and sidelined advisory committees staffed by scientists, and suppressed research and analysis from public view — often material that had previously been made available.
In many cases, they have appeared to pay little political price for these missteps. This trend has culminated in the efforts of the current administration not only to politicize scientific and technical research on a range of topics, but also, at times, to undermine the value of objective facts themselves. Political officials have the prerogative to make policy decisions, and even challenge the science and methodology of career experts, but accurate, nonpolitical, government-supported research and analysis should be protected.
Indeed, government research has shifted the course of human history through, for example, the space race, cures for disease, food- and water-safety measures, and computer and internet technology innovations. For their part, lawmakers have rubber-stamped some nominees who are unqualified or have conflicts of interest while dragging their feet on considering others, often based on whether or not the Senate majority and the president share a party.
The consequences are readily apparent: less than half the senior roles at the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security are filled; at least a dozen agencies — including two cabinet departments — are run by non-Senate-confirmed acting officials two years into this administration; and the Senate confirmation process takes five times longer than it did 40 years ago.
The Shiite Interpretation of the Status of Women
Their services were limited to investment and home finance and were available only regionally. From the late s, the market size grew significantly, paralleling the growth of the Muslim population in the US: from 50 per cent in the s to 66 per cent in the s. In , JP Morgan started to offer Islamic banking services. Retail banks operate in several states: University Islamic Financial a subsidiary of University Bank , based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is the first and only exclusively shariah-compliant bank in the US; Devon Bank in Chicago regularly offers Islamic finance services; Guidance Residential, in Reston, Virginia, is the biggest non-bank financial institution that offers Islamic finance services; and another large Islamic mortgage lender is LARIBA, in California, which also provides business financing.
Shariah requirements have made further proliferation of Islamic finance difficult.

Policymakers must break free of the false dichotomy of America as either a nation of immigrants or a nation of laws, and advance an immigration system that is fair, humane, and actually works. For too many years, the conversation has been predicated on a false dichotomy that says America can either honor its history and traditions as a nation of immigrants 1 or live up to its ideals as a nation of laws by enforcing the current immigration system.
Debates over a liberal immigration policy actually predate the start of the nation itself; they infused the drafting of the U. Indeed, it is precisely because these two visions of the country are intertwined that America cannot be a nation of laws if those laws are antithetical to its history and ideals as a nation of immigrants. Put another way, the U. This report sets out a framework for immigration policymaking that brings together the two visions of America, with the goal of building a fair, humane, and well-functioning immigration system in which the rule of law is restored.
Additionally, it makes the case for why immigration proponents can and should reclaim the rule of law narrative frame from immigration restrictionists who frequently misappropriate the term to drive law and order policies that demonize immigrant communities and communities of color and only worsen the dysfunctionality and cruelty of the current system. The report begins by laying out what the rule of law is, how it has been distorted by opponents of immigration, and the degree to which the current immigration system makes a mockery of American history and ideals—of an America that is both a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.
The report then outlines the emergence over a period of years of the extralegal immigration system that exists today. The inadequacies of the former, and the abject cruelty of the latter, have contributed to a growing sense among some policymakers, as well as many in the pro-immigrant advocacy community, that the entire enforcement apparatus must be unwound.

The rejection of dating is part of a larger pattern of gender segregation that is adhered of Islamic practice that may come into direct conflict with American norms and norms in which teenage youth are expected to date and establish social lives younger siblings experience more leniency and are allowed more freedom.
Nevertheless, there are obvious differences between what is understood as Shiite philosophy and religious prescription and what is actually practiced in a social context within Shiite communities. Those differences are not only due to and justified by theological or legal issues, but various sociohistorical contexts have also played a major role in their development.
The main factors in this regard are: the contribution of religious beliefs and national folklore as well as local literature and the collective conscience of a nation, including the epic history of a nation as told in prose or verse and popular stories that have had an important direct impact on behavior and traditions throughout history.
Women have the same obligations as men when it comes to a belief in God, worship, and the practice of certain religious rituals such as prayer. Women are born just like men, according to divine nature. If Eve—as the first woman—was misled by Satan, her fault is equal to that of Adam—as the first man—and not superior. Insofar as exclusively religious rituals are concerned, Muslim women and men have the same obligations.

Religion has long played a paramount role in the daily life and social customs of Afghanistan. Even under the mujahideen leaders, Afghanistan appeared to be on a course of Islamization: the sale of alcohol was banned, and women were pressured to cover their heads in public and adopt traditional Muslim dress. But far more stringent practices were imposed as the Taliban enforced its Islamic code in areas under its control.
These measures included banning television sets and most other forms of entertainment. Men who failed to grow beards and leave them untrimmed were fined and jailed—full beardedness being perceived by extremists as the mark of a Muslim—and little mercy was shown to convicted criminals. These and other policies were not widely popular, and the Taliban was subject to reproach at home and abroad for its inability to build a national administrative structure. But, in the absence of viable alternatives , most Afghans appeared to accept Taliban dictates for the more orderly society it brought.
Daily life for Afghan women has changed radically. In the s the wearing of a veil became voluntary, and women found employment in offices and shops; some women also received a university education. Strong penalties were applied against women who were not fully covered in the streets or who were found in the company of males unrelated to them. Today, in the post-Taliban era, daily life for most Afghans revolves around the exigencies of rebuilding a war-ravaged state.
With increasing stability has come a greater and steadier food supply, but, in general, poor nutrition among Afghans has remained a serious cause of concern, especially in light of the neglect and destruction wrought upon the agricultural system during the war and the extended drought since the late s. The wide absence of clean drinking water and of adequate sanitation has ensured continuation of a high mortality rate, especially among young children.
