However, the state of this moment of freedom of expression can be characterized by the decline, retreat and contraction of freedom of expression after the aggravation of war, terrorism and disorder in Syria.
This contraction has been accompanied with the emergence of the Islamic jurisprudential perspective which rations, phagocytizes and penalizes the freedom of expression. Thus, Syrians became before a rise in the freedom of expression and the possibility to realise it, on one hand, and before its decline and digestion into the fiqh inheritance, on the other.
In the process of interpreting the ideal of freedom of expression into lived reality in the Arab culture, there emerges the Fiqh obstacle to delay and hinder its realisation, working, thus, in synergy with the war, terrorism, despotism and disorder. Thus, we see the Fiqh discourse canonizing the freedom of expression, which justifies the reality and ascribes a kind of mental and religious legitimacy to it, while, at the same time, it bans and suppresses the freedom of expression, which criticizes and opposes it, or epistemologically overcomes and breaks up with it.
Though the Fiqh does not answer or respond to tangible existential problems, and to abstract epistemological problems raised by the revolution of freedom and dignity in Syria, it is still prevailing as a mainstream that has no answers other than those provided by the traditional Islamic jurisprudence about problems that have nothing to do with the current moment. It is worth mentioning here that our Syrian society is no longer a perfect natural society, like that of bees and ants; rather, it is an imperfect epistemological one that seeks to perfection but does not achieve it; this means that the Syrian society is a historical, intentional, rational, realistic and current, and not a mere existence like the existence of rocks, or like an existence in the jurisprudential past.
Yes, rocks exist and people exist, but the existence of people is much more than the existence of rocks, and needs so many definitions and new perspectives rather than the jurisprudential one. The Syrian society has become a world, reality, history and will… it has become knowledge and not jurisprudence. Thus, the case lays dead or as a shapeless substance on the bed of Fiqh. What we need in Syria is to have freedom of expression open for our mental judgments as a compass to lead our route. We also need the Islamic jurisprudence to restrict itself to its domain.
What happens now is that Fiqh legislates for freedom of expression, judgments and mental reasoning, getting beyond its domain.
This way, the Fiqh practices itself searching for a principle for what it supposes to be a branch, for an old origin for any new thing. It does that by measuring against the old and the principle, depending on the ancient texts which it believes to contain everything.
The failure to achieve an epistemological discontinuity with the Fiqh , therefore, enhances the Fiqh obstacle in the face of freedom of expression, and confirms the circulation in a vicious circle ending with further decline of freedom of expression. Mental health issues are on the rise and the topic is attracting attention.
