Religious intellectuals on Islamic law۲۲ شهریور ۱۳۸۷
Some intellectuals in contemporary Iran, among whom one can mention Abdolkarim Soroush and Mohammad Mojtahed Shabestari, hold that Islamic law (fighh) is duty-oriented law. They strongly believe that nowadays in the modern world, which is the age of the prevalence of the paradigm of rights compared with ancient world which was the age of the prevalence of the paradigm of duties, Islamic law has lost its equilibrium between duties and rights. Accordingly they put emphasis on the significance of modifying and reconsidering presuppositions on which duty-oriented law has been constructed. They clearly announced we need “right-oriented Islamic law”.
