    shocked2 Non-Muslims turning to Sharia courts

    Increasing numbers of non-Muslims are turning to Sharia courts to resolve commercial disputes and other civil matters, The Times has learnt.

    The Muslim Arbitration Tribunal (MAT) said that 5 per cent of its cases involved non-Muslims who were using the courts because they were less cumbersome and more informal than the English legal system.

    Freed Chedie, a spokesman for Sheikh Faiz-ul-Aqtab Siqqiqi, a barrister who set up the tribunal, said: “We put weight on oral agreements, whereas the British courts do not.”

    In a case last month a non-Muslim Briton took his Muslim business partner to the tribunal to sort out a dispute over the profits in their car fleet company. “The non-Muslim claimed that there had been an oral agreement between the pair,” said Mr Chedie. “The tribunal found that because of certain things the Muslim man did, that agreement had existed. The non-Muslim was awarded £48,000.”

    He said that the tribunal had adjudicated on at least 20 cases involving non-Muslims so far this year. The rulings of the tribunal are legally binding, provided that both parties agree to that condition at the beginning of any hearing.

    Heh, now this is slightly surprising. Talk about a twist
    i find the idea and guts of using sharia courts against a muslim who has been dodgy amusing. I can imagine that the business man never expected a non-Muslim to use Sharia against him

    WEll imagine the loopholes in 1 book that claims to be answer to everything.

    To me personally or generally?

    Depends on whether you personally hold the other books special.
    The torah and Bible are special in the sense that they are abrahamic but little more after that

    So why should a Religous Special Book be used for any form of Law then.
