Islamic law, or Shariah, already is being applied in the U.S. court system, according to an extensive new report.

“Shariah enters U.S. courts through the practice of comity to foreign law,” Reaboi explained. “This happens, for example, when a judge decides to allow the use of say, Pakistani or Saudi family law (Shariah) in a dispute between Pakistanis or Saudis.”

The report also presents details of 19 more “top cases” and a summary of 50 cases from 23 states that have used Shariah as the basis for court decisions.

American Center for Law and Justice Shariah expert Shaheryar Gill said in the prominent New Jersey case, “the judge actually looked at Shariah law to decide.”
