Human rights issues are an important topic for discussion in all countries and religions. Naturally, these issues become important for business managers who work as expatiates in foreign countries that are predominantly Islamic. Due to stereotypes and misinformation, many fear that human rights are being violated due to religious responses in Islamic countries. However, Islam is compatible with international human rights. Some people claim that international human rights objective is an imperialist agenda that should be rejected; and others state that Islam is incompatible with international human rights. The responses are discussed from the perspective of Shari’a, the Islamic Law, in this paper so business managers and expatriates who work with Muslims have a better awareness of the facts.
