slam gives great importance to the basic right to privacy. this is often evident from the number of the verses of the Holy Quran: ‘Do not spy on one another’ (49:12); ‘Do not enter any houses except your own homes unless you’re sure of their occupants’ consent’ (24:27). The Prophet has gone to the extent of instructing his followers that a person shouldn’t enter even his own house suddenly or surreptitiously. this text attempts to explore the extent of the sanctity given to the proper to privacy by Islam and therefore the sorts of privacy it recognizes. it’ll also explore the extent to which this right has been recognized within the laws of certain key Islamic Countries. The article contains a case study of Pakistan, an Islamic state that identifies the Quran and Sunnah as sources of law. Under the Pakistani Constitution, there can’t be a law in violation of the injunctions of Islam. In fact, various laws are declared to be in violation of the injunctions of Islam by the Federal Shariah Court. The Constitution of Pakistan, also because the Pakistani law on Freedom of data, recognizes the proper to privacy. Despite this, the maximum objective of the draft Pakistani Data Protection Law isn’t to protect the principles of Islam, but to satisfy the wants of European Union Directive 95/46, especially Article 25 thereof, with the hope of ensuring that data are going to be allowed to flow freely between the ECU Union and Pakistan, thus making Pakistan a beautiful marketplace for outsourcing.
