The development of a Fiqh tailored towards the Muslims of a country where Muslims are a minority like England,North America, India or the European countries has been of recent discussion in some Muslim organisations. The justification for “Minority Fiqh” is two fold. First, the argument is that the old Fatwas are no longer applicable and reinterpretations are necessary in order for Islam to be applicable to Muslims in these countries. Secondly, that Muslims in these countries face problems that never existed before, and the solutions to these problems have to be applicable to those specific problems that are faced by them.


Is this just another attempt to change Islam and make whats haram into halal e.g likes if riba?

Any thoughts?
