Q: Are Islamic laws applicable in a non-Muslim country?
A: If the internal and external affairs of a country are run by a non-Muslim
government, and the government has not appointed a Muslim leader or judge
for its Muslim subjects, then it is incumbent upon the Muslims of that
country to appoint a leader for themselves if they are free to practice
Islam in that country. However till they do not unanimously decide on a
leader, it is permissible for them to appoint a Muslim judge (or body), with
whom the people are pleased, to handle their affairs according to Shariáh.
