The Faculty was established in 1996, about three decades after the establishment of Darussalam Institute of Islamic Studies. The rationale for its inception is to respond the growing need of Indonesian Muslims towards the knowledge of Shari‘ah. There are number of problems faced by Muslims society that require the mastery of Shari‘ah law either at the level of Islamic court or at the society. The development of the studies of Islamic economics and bank in some countries justified the importance and relevance of Shari‘ah. Now, the relevance of this faculty becomes significant when the discourse on Islamic Economics and Laws flourished in various universities in the world, especially in the Muslim worlds. That is why the study of Shari‘ah, especially on muamalah (Islamic Economics and Laws) grows very rapidly.
This faculty has two departments: Department of Comparative School of Law, and Department of Islamic Economics and Laws (Muamalat).
