Islamic schools of law. For Muslim’s to prosper in life it believed they must follow Sharia law, with no faults. Necessities are mattering that worldly and religious life depend upon. Their omission leads to unbearable hardship in this life, or punishment in the next. There are five necessities: preservation of religion, life, intellect, lineage, and wealth. These ensure individual and social welfare in this life and the hereafter. The Sharia protects these necessities in two ways: firstly, by ensuring their establishment and then by preserving them. Needs and comforts are things people seek in order to ensure a good life, and avoid hardship, even though they are not essential. Evaluate how the major branches of Islam, Sunni and Shia, create conflict. Your response should be a minimum of 200 words.- Sunnis make up the majority of the Islasmic world, between 85-90 percent. With Shia being made up of the rest. Both Sunnis and Shias – drawing their faith and practice from the Qur’an and the life of the Prophet Muhammad – agree on most of the fundamentals of Islam. The differences are related more to historical events, ideological heritage and issues of leadership. Muslims who put their faith in Abu Bakr came to be called Sunni and those who trusted in Ali came to be known as Shia. As Islam continued to expand and develop into more complex and overlapping societies, it required more codified forms of religious and political leadership.
