The urgent need to bring sanity and justice to the fabric of Nigerian society, through divine laws (Shariah) is quite apparent, as well as desirable. The main objective of the shariah law is therefore to construct human life on the basis of Ma'rufat (virtues) and to cleanse man of all munkarat (vices). <br>These virtues are good qualities that have been accepted by human nature, while vices are the opposite of virtues. In this regard, the overall meaningful development of any society squarely depends upon the moral behaviours and attitudes of its people, hence the agitation for the introduction of Shariah law by the adherents of Islamic Religion in some parts of Nigerian polity.
