The impact of the evidence on convicting the felon - A Fiqh comparative study -

Abstract

Researching the subject of evidence requires thorough examination and entails unbiasness so that the confusion in the verdict, as a result to misunderstanding of the juristic evidences related to it, can be resolved. While the unbiasness in decision is the basis in preparing any scientific research that involves various and different opinions of the scholars relevant to this topic, but evidence is of great importance from one hand, but many criminals commit their felonies without leaving any evidence that prove that they are criminals. So, many of them slip away from the hand of justice. As a result, crimes became more in number and corruption prevails in the society. So, is it possible to rely on the evidences, if there are evidences, in proving the charge and convict the felon who committed it and apply the suitable penalty against him? This what the current research of mine will discuss. This study included an introduction, two sections and a conclusion. The introduction tackled the importance of the subject and its division. But, section one was comprised two sub sections. The first dealt with the definition to the evidence and the second dealt with the significance of the evidence in proving the charge. While the second sub section tackled the nature of penalty related to the evidence. But the conclusion tackled with manifesting the most important findings that were resched through were concluded by the researcher.
