This paper examines the role of Islamic teachings in combating various forms of corruption within Pakistan, drawing upon the principles outlined in Islamic Sharia. Through a specific study focused on the Pakistani context, this research investigates how Islamic values and ethical principles prescribed by Sharia can serve as a deterrent to corruption. The study employs qualitative research methods, including a literature review and analysis of Islamic teachings, to elucidate the mechanisms through which Islamic teachings can prevent corruption.

What is the place of <em>Sunnah </em>of the Prophet (P.B.U.H) in the Pakistani Legal System; what is the importance of the <em>hadith</em>, “actions are to be judged by intentions…”; whether it holds a significant place in a legal system; if so, to what extent; Whether intention has consequences on our legal transactions? The main findings of this paper are that the primary sources of Islamic law are the Qur’an, the Sunnah of the Prophet (P.B.U.H), Ijma‘ and <em>Qiyas</em> (analogy). &nbsp;The Sunnah is a source of Islamic law but is recognized as a subsidiary source in the Pakistani legal system. The <em>hadith</em>, “actions are to be judged by intentions” is a very important <em>hadith</em> as it lays down the framework of not just our religious obligations but also law, especially criminal law. This <em>hadith</em> lays down the important principle that all acts must be done so with a corresponding intention. This <em>hadith </em>also serves as an important principle that forms the very framework of criminal as well as civil actions in a legal system. For a crime to be committed, there must be both a <em>mens rea</em> (guilty intention) and <em>actus reus</em> (actual physical performance of said intention). Hence, where there is no guilty intention, there is no crime, although in cases where there are more severe crimes, the punishment will be severe as well. Hence, the crimes are categorized into intentional and unintentional, where the punishment is greater in the former than it is in the latter. And for some crimes, the punishment can only be given if there was also guilty intention as well. Thus, it is only with intention that we can determine whether the act committed can be constituted as a crime and if such act is a crime, than it shall be a determinant in the punishment for the said crime as well. The methodology used in this paper is doctrinal.</p> Amr Ibn Munir Copyright (c) 2024 Al-Duhaa Wed, 15 May 2024 00:00:00 +0000
