Would you mind expanding on this? I'm quite interested.
It's my understanding that all laws in an Islamic state are derived from the Qur'an and the Sunnah, and then the rest from Qiyas (analogical deduction: ie., alcohol is illegal because it intoxicates, and by extension cocaine, heroin, etc. also are): with the reasoning being that since it's God's world, only God (through the above) has the authority to set laws within it. Is that how Muslims propose it works? - or have I been misled?
