: Fiqh for Minorities: a Theoretical Study. Fiqh for Minorities—which in Arabic is called Fiqh al-Aqaliyyât— is a fiqh model that maintains legal association of sharia and the dimensions of a particular community, namely minority Muslim communities in western countries. Fiqh for Minorities is a product of reinterpretation of the existing arguments on the basis of the benefit whichis the spirit of sharia. The designers of this fiqh are Taha Jabir al-'Alwani in his book, Toward a Fiqh for Minorities: Some Basic Reflection, and Yûsuf al-Qarâdawî in his book, Fî Fiqh al-Aqalliyât al- Muslimah. Fiqh for Minorities originated from the accumulation of the concerns of Muslim minority communities in western countries when it should be doing something related to their religion. This fiqh is designed to provide guidance and a handle on the things that are prohibited and permissible for Muslim minorities living in western countries to carry out their obligations as a Muslim.
