I refer to that as the law. The final law. The common law is that of the predecessor or what you term precedents, the past cases where the judge rolls his thumbs and thinks what to apply after the many bygones cases. What is the best fit? This is not in Islam. We have one the Quran. The kadhis and the courts based on these. Not being a Muslim and you living in the UK it is very difficult to explain this in simple English as both the Indian and Islam law are out from UK. India had the first laws that migrated to UK; the laws in UK are based on these laws modified. Read Law by Mulla The lawyer < he has four volumes and you will see a lot of the Indian precedent now polished Islam cannot be translated by you or I as we have scanty knowledge in Arabic.
