BARMM convenes Shari'ah practitioners

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur, Sept. 8 — The Office of the Chief Minister (OCM), through its Office of Attorney General (OAG), convened Shari’ah practitioners in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) on Tuesday, September 3, to tackle significant issues and concerns on Shari’ah practice that need to be addressed.

Bangsamoro Chief Minister Ahod “Al haj Murad” Ebrahim said that it is very important for the Bangsamoro government to establish a condition conducive to the application of the Shari’ah law.

“Our advocacy in the Bangsamoro is moral governance, and this is actually in line with the Shari’ah. We, therefore, take this challenge of moral governance not only as representatives of the Bangsamoro entrusted with responsibilities to govern the newly established BARMM but more importantly as Muslims in accordance to the teachings of Islam,” he said.

Organized in partnership with The Asia Foundation,  the Bangsamoro Shari’ah Practitioners Assembly is part of the series of activities for  2019 for the integration of Shari’ah Bar pursuant to Article X, Section 15 of R.A. No. 11054 otherwise known as the Organic Law of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
