Hello, Could you tell me more about your topic and how it relates to U.S. law and poverty? Lisa Cline

It does not have a direct connection with the US law. It is a comparative law. I plan to write a research on the poverty laws and Sadaqat in Islamic, jurisprudence, law and (mal)practices Islamic countries. Shams

Hi Shams, It sounds like you have a really interesting topic. Unfortunately, the topic does not meet the requirements for publication in this issue. I wish you the best in publishing your article. Lisa Cline
