Asma Akter, Abdul Jalil Ramli, Yasmin Ahmad and S M Sohel Rana

 

ABSTRACT

Social entrepreneurship is the catalytic behaviour of social benefit organizations that engender value and change in the sector, community, and industry through the combination of innovation, risk-taking and reactiveness. It has attracted growing interest from policymakers, young people, entrepreneurs,
funders, and established businesses. Significant advances have been seen in the practice of social entrepreneurship without a commensurate surge in the literature on the theory underlying the practice. The increased attention on the practice has revealed a significant lack of cohesion in the area of social entrepreneurship which has resulted in a stifling of the academic research devoted to the social sector. As the demand and interest in social entrepreneurship increases, it requires a comprehensive understanding of what social entrepreneurship really is. Therefore, this paper tries to provide an in depth discussion on the meaning, purpose, scope and the socio economic effects of social entrepreneurship.

Towards the Settlement of Civil and Criminal Disputes through Arbitration under Islamic Law

Md. Shahadat Hossain, Md. Shamsuddin Masum and Most Yasmin Ara

 

ABSTRACT

Islam is not just a religion; it is an exhaustive way of life. Din-the Arabic word for religion, encompasses, theology, scripture, politics, morality, law, justice, and all other aspects of life relating to the thoughts or actions of men...it is not that religion dominates the life of a faithful Muslim, but that religion...is his life. The Shari'ah regulates all aspects of life, ethical and social, and to encompass criminal as well as civil jurisdiction. Every act of believers must conform to Islamic law and observe ethical standards derived from Islamic principles. Dispute settlement is one of the fundamental affairs of the Muslim as he was ordained to do so peacefully and this was declared as best way of resolving problems among them. Arbitration and amicable settlement (sulh) have a long history within Arab and Islamic societies and have their roots in pre-Islamic Arabia. Sulh is the preferred result and process in any form of dispute resolution. Further, arbitration is favoured to adjudication in Islamic jurisprudence. In tribal and Islamic cultures, the overarching objectives in conflict settlement are collectively. Sulh or reconciliation is becoming an alternative problem solver in many cases lately. It is a mutual agreement between the conflicting parties so that the dispute is solved amicably. Many people assume that sulh is only applicable in civil cases. Nevertheless, in Islamic law sulh is also applicable in criminal cases particularly in homicide and bodily injury cases.
