Definition: Sharia is a system of law inspired by Islam and the Koran, as well as Arabic traditions and early Islamic scholars. Sharia is understood to rule not only Muslims but those living within a Muslim society, and governs all realms of a person's life. Sharia's influence on the law in Muslim nations, though, varies widely.
