Privacy in Islam

The UK Government is trying to implement an element of Sharia Law after the ‘hacking trial’

We have seen much coverage of the ‘phone hacking’ trail in the media over the last fortnight in the UK. It brought to light the impunity with which the free British media was able to freely invade people’s privacy and hack into mobile telephone conversations etc to get exclusive news, even when it meant committing criminal offences.

In this khutba we look at the instructions given by the Holy Quran and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s) regarding privacy and show how a head of state as highly respected and powerful as Hazrat Umar (r) was required to respect the private lives of people of his state.
