ETHICS AND GOVERNANCE14 November 2019 Azahari
Maqasid Shariah is mainly to enable human to live happily on the path of Allah both in this world and hereafter. The Maqasid Shariah is to promote the well-being of the people, which lies in safeguarding their faith (din), their lives (nafs), their intellect (‘aql), their prosperity (nasl) and their wealth (mal). Whatever ensures the safeguarding of these five serves public interest and is desirable, and whatever hurts them is against public interest and its removal is desirable. These purposes are achieved through values, norms and laws adopted by Muslims.
