Hadiths, Sharia, and Fiqh (Islamic Law)

There are numerous elements in the Islamic Legal Corpus that do not end at the Qur'an. The Hadiths concern various events or sayings during Muhammad's life that confirm or explain various Islamic traditions. Islamic Jurists, called Faqihs/Fuqahaa', have interpreted the Qur'an, Hadiths, and the Biography of Prophet to determine the proper laws and codes in Islam. This jurisprudential study is called Fiqh and the final corpus of laws is called Sharia.
