Publisher: Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia
Abstract: Fatwa is an explanation on Islamic ruling, which is needed by local society in facing new issues, as a solution in accordance with Shariah. It also plays a vital role to clarify the confusions and misunderstandings that happen in Muslim community. The solutions offered by Fatwa would satisfy the curiosity and internal feeling of Muslim in their daily life. This article will discuss the concept of fatwa and the challenges of its enforcement according to 'The Administration of Islamic Law (Federal Territory) Act'. Besides, the writer would also identify the relevant authority body which has been given power by the aforementioned Act to enforce the issued fatwa. The article would try to reveal some problems and challenges in enforcing fatwa. Based on writer's observation, the standard of fatwa enforcement in Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur is still below the normal level as it should to be. The number of officers in the Enforcement Division of Islamic Department is inadequate to make the fatwa as effective law. Hopefully, this article would give a clear picture to Muslim community on the reality of fatwa enforcement in Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur.
