Abstract: This study aims to discuss one of the effects of modern development in the law of evidence, focusing on the status of electronic signature on the occasion of the recent developments of information technology. This is due to the various approaches to the authentication methods exist in the Evidence Act, which relates to the issue of validity. It also needs experts in the said field to verify its validity. Other issue is the lack of knowledge on the Electronic signature among the Judges in courts. Based on the current problems, this study focuses on three main aspects; the definition of Electronic Signature based on Fiqh and the existing laws that support the definitions of Electronic signature. The second is on the terms and characteristics of the electronic signature and the third is the authenticity of the electronic signature in the evidence. This study is based on the method of analytical study of the texts of laws and projects, comparative study and different opinions, based on references and related scientific sources. From this study, we can conclude that an electronic signature is related to a sign, phrase, or procedure concerning letters, numbers, symbols, signs, sounds, or any combination that appears in an electronic form. We also find that there are certain conditions for electronic signature to make it an admissible argument in evidence in many respects in terms of delivery, storage and others. What is more, the laws of evidence have recognized the authenticity of an electronic signature and while the traditional signature is recognized under certain conditions.
