The article analyzes of the use of mediation in the Muslim world. The authors proceeds from the idea that one of the most important conclusions of the cross-cultural studies of conflict resolution is that religion is a perennial and, perhaps inevitably, to both conflict and conflict resolution. Religion, after all, is a powerful component of the cultural norms and values, and because it’s addresses the deepest existential questions of human life. Unlike the Western model of mediation, the Islamic system of mediation is different in that it reinforces religious principles. Mediation should only be applied when settlement of disputes in permitted activities should be useful. Considered to be bound by the settlement agreement by Shariah law, disregard of which is unreasonable and constitutes an offence and carries a more severe punishment in the afterlife.
