The Role of Judges in defining Islamic constitutional obligation in the Egyptian Legal System
Throughout history, Egyptian constitutions accommodated miscellaneous rights, freedoms and responsibilities. While embracing a vast array of individual rights, Egyptian constitutions have also affirmed a firm compliance to ratified international treaties and to Islamic Sharia principles. As such, the tangled relationship between religion and the rule of law influenced the legal development of a rights framework in Egypt tremendously and incited the emergence of a diversified body of jurisprudence in the interpretation and practice of constitutional rights. The question which requires attention is the role of the Judges in defining Islamic constitutional obligation in the Egyptian Legal System?
