The former Muftee of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Imaam Muhammad bin Ibraaheem (may Allaah have mercy upon him)  stated:

“The government [of Saudi Arabia], praise be to Allaah, its constitution (dustoor) is the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger ; and it has opened the Islaamic courts for that purpose, for the actualisation of the statement of Allaah:

‘And if you differ in any affair between yourselves, then refer it back to Allaah and His Messenger.’ [38]

And that which is besides this, then he is one who judges by jaahiliyyah, about which Allaah, the Most High, said:

‘Do they then seek the judgement of (the Days of) Ignorance? And who is better in judgement than Allaah for a people who have firm Faith?’ [1]” [2]
