Abstract

The practice of female circumcision in Malaysia has been heavily criticized for being like the practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Africa. This criticism started from the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 2018, organized by the United Nations Human Rights (UNHR), which called on Malaysia to stop the practice of female circumcision. Among the accusations made were that the practice of female circumcision was merely a tradition and not a religious requirement. In addition, they denied the authority of the hadith used as evidence for the legitimization of female circumcision, claiming that they were weak and lacked authority. Therefore, this study aims to reassess and re-evaluate the validity and authority of the hadith used as evidence for the legitimization of female circumcision. This study uses a qualitative method, employing historical-textual analysis, to analyze the opinions of hadith scholars regarding the sanad (Transmission) and matan (Text) of the hadith. The results of this study found that the hadith regarding female circumcision has various pathways that can support each other and can be upgraded to hasan li ghayrihi. In conclusion, this study found that the hadith used as evidence for the legitimization of female circumcision is authoritative, thereby affirming that this practice is part of Islamic law.

Abstract

This study entitled: “Care for people with special needs between the Sunnah of the Prophet and the Algerian law: (The National Association al-Saber Yanal for people with special needs as a model)” discussed the definitions related to people with special needs in linguistic, Qurʾānic and Sunnah context, as well as their definition in Algerian law, while dealing with the most important provisions of the constitution about their rights according to the law 02–09. This study sheds light on their rights in the Sunnah of the Prophet P.B.U.H and had a comprehensive discussion on the difference in their right between the Sunnah of the Prophet P.B.U.H and the Algerian law. The study has also done a field study on al-Ṣāber Yanāl Association for people with special needs in Ouargla (Algeria). The researchers used the inductive approach by extrapolating the hadiths of the Prophet P.B.U.H about people with special needs, and the comparative analytical approach to discuss and analyze the information obtained, and to compare the rights of people with special needs in Algerian law with their rights in the Sunnah of the Prophet P.B.U.H, and the applied approach, which included a field study on al-Ṣāber Yanāl Association, conducted an interview with four (4) members of the permanent members of the association. The study found that the Algerian law is considered a statutory law that falls short of containing the problems and issues of people of special needs, while the Sunnah of the Prophet P.B.U.H was totally the opposite; this is because the law that was legislated was deficient in several aspects and was not studied by qualified officials, and that the good aspects is bad implemented, in contrast to the many rights granted to them by the Prophet’s Sunnah, the most important of which is integrating them into society and making them part of it.
