ABSTRACT
The doctrine of the Rule of Law is of no doubt a well established and rooted doctrine under Islamic legal system as well as the conventional legal system. From the time of the ruling of the Noble Prophet of Islam (PBUH) to the time of the four rightly guided Caliphs, this doctrine of rule of law is well followed and this can be seen in the various practices of the Noble Prophet and the rightly guided Caliphs. However, over time, due to the partial submission of some aspect of Islamic tenets to western civilization, the doctrine of rule of law appear to have lost some of it’s applicable principle in an Islamic community. In view of the above submission, this essay finds it important to examine the doctrine of rule of law under Islamic law, its juristic approach and its applicability in Muslim state.
