The book covers the affirmative evidence in the Shari'ah and demonstrates that indeed Islam does allow freedom of speech. While reading, I found western legal theory borrowing a lot from Islamic Law and the Islamic legal system in may ways. This book will expand your understanding of what Shari'ah is and isn't, even though its not written for that. Mohammad Hashim Kamali, being a legal scholar, explores Islamic rights such as Freedom to Express Opinion, Freedom of Association (political parties, etc) Freedom of personal reason, freedom of scientific inquiry, Freedom to Criticise (people or government for the purpose of the betterment of society at large), freedom of consulation and more. It is a great book that lays waste to the myth of Shari'ah. It gives it its respect that it deserves from an academic and legal perspective, rather than a cartoon version of Shariah in which we imagine angry bearded men and oppressed shrowded, beaten and battered women.

The book later goes into the limits of freedom of speech. I have not gotten this far yet, but I am roughly halfway through and I am honestly loving this book.

Buy this book and read it.

Wonderful insight on an important subject

Excellent treatment of the concept of freedom of expression in Islam. Those who question islams commitment to this most important aspect of the human condition should definitely read this.
