Al-qawÄÊ¿id al-fiqhÄ«yah or legal forms of Islamic law are the general rules of fiqh that represent the objectives and objectives of the SharÄ«Ê¿ah. They are applied in various cases covered by the joint judgments and play a very important role in the development of many Fiqh rules, as they provide a guideline for the development of certain ̧¥ukm. There are five main maxims, as reflected in Majallah, such as al-umÅ«r bi maqÄá¹£idihÄ (things are determined by intention), al-yaqÄ«n la yazÅ«l bi alshakk (certainty is not supplanted by doubt), al-mashaqqah tajlib al-taysÄ«r (hardness creates the institution), al-á ̧arar yuzÄl (damage must be repaired) and al-Ê¿ädah muá ̧¥akkamah (custom is a basis for judgment). In addition to these five guiding maxims, which are applicable to a number of legal principles, there are other maxims that are not as extensive as the main maxims, but still deal with a number of more detailed issues in Fiqh. Usually, the maxims included in this category are either an extension of the maxims derived from the five main maxims, or they may not be related. This article attempts to analyze maxims that are not the main maxims related to Islamic finance and understand their roles and applications in the Islamic banking and financial sector.
