(2) Between the different schools of Islamic jurisprudence, there are more commonalities than differences between them. Followers of the eight schools of Islamic jurisprudence agree on the fundamental principles of Islam. All believe in Allah, the glorified and the sublime as he is, the One and the One; that the Quran is God`s revealed Word; and that our Master Muhammad, may blessing and peace be upon him, is a prophet and a messenger for all humanity. All agree on the five pillars of Islam: the two testimonies of faith (shahadatayn); ritual prayer (salad); alms (zakat) The fast of the month of Ramadan and the Hajj at the holy house of God (in Mecca). All also agree on the foundations of faith: faith in Allah (God), his angels, His Holy Scriptures, His Messengers and on the Day of Judgment, in divine Providence in good and evil. The differences of opinion between the “Ulamas” of the eight schools of Islamic jurisprudence are only with regard to the secondary branches of religion (furu)) and not with regard to the principles and bases (usul) [the religion of Islam]. Disagreement over the secondary branches of religion (furu`) is a grace. A long time ago, it was said that disagreements between the “Ulama (scholars) ” are a good deal. The pan-Euro-Mediterranean cumulative system was introduced in 2005. It brings together the EU, Jordan and other European and Mediterranean partners to support regional integration through the creation of a common system of rules of origin.
Rules of origin are the technical criteria for determining whether a particular product is eligible for duty-free access or other preferential access under a specific trade agreement. Palestinian sources reportedly warned that Jordan could review its peace agreement with Israel and decide to denounce it if Israel adopted a plan to annex parts of the West Bank. The accumulation of origin means that a product can be processed from a partner country or can be added to a product from another partner country, but can nevertheless be considered a “product of origin” of that second partner country for the purpose of a specific trade agreement. [Text of the agreement signed by King Hussein of Jordan and PLO leader Yasir Arafat.] The agreement signed by Dr. Youssef Al-Shawarbeh, Mayor of Amman, and Nasser Al-Majali, Secretary General of the Jordanian Olympic Committee, will lead to the connection between the two sides by a COMPUTER system to be put in place by the secretariat before the end of the year. The EU and Jordan have developed their free trade agreement through additional agreements on agricultural, agri-food and fisheries products, as well as through a bilateral dispute settlement mechanism that came into force in 2007 and 2011 respectively. Following the talks in Amman on 11 February, Yasser Arafat and King Hussein reached a joint action agreement, to be published by the Jordanian government on 22 February: Countries for Peace on the basis of UN resolutions (including the Security Council); “The Palestinians will exercise their inalienable right to self-determination if Jordanians and Palestinians are able to do so within the framework of a proposed Arab confederal union between the two states of Jordan and Palestine”; and peace negotiations to be held at an international conference involving the parties to the conflict, including the PLO, as part of a joint Jordanian-Palestinian delegation.
