This work examines major aspects of criminology and penology in Islamic jurisprudence in the light of the Shari’a classical heritage. Based on the mental construction and spiritual functions of the Muslim classical principles for crime prevention and the treatment of offenders, legal provisions are analyzed in comparison with international human rights norms, as well as American constitutional law, the Saudi and Egyptian criminal procedures, and the Sudanese and Emirates’ penal legislations.
