Dear Brother / Sister,
It includes all the decrees Allah set for people. Islamic Shari’ah is fundamentally based on the Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) and the general opinion of Islamic scholars and proofs of Qiyas (analogy - foundation of legal reasoning ). A decree bearing an Islamic qualification depends on whether it is based on these principles or not.
