This article discusses the sustainability of the law of fiqh in critical fatwas (jurictic rulings) concerning tithe in Terengganu. Sole reliance of the fatwas on the As-Shafi'i teachings alone may cause difficulties to society. Henceforth, fatwas that are appropriate to current needs and general interest should be properly sustained. The issue of tithe is one of the matters which require sustainability as it is one of the key instruments in the development and economic prosperity of a nation. Nevertheless, can these fatwas on tithes, deemed critical, resolve the many problems of the society and government in order to ensure that the economic and social circumstances of the Muslim society will be enhanced in line with the requirements of syarak (Islamic Law)? Do the said fatwas, either influenced by the Shafi'i sect or views from other sects, including contemporary scholars, take into account the changes in situations and time? This article will study the sustainability of tithe in critical fatwas on tithe in Terengganu as a research material. The research results will show that there is indeed sustainability of fiqh in the decision of a particular fatwa on tithe, in overcoming an issue, and it is considered to be appropriate to current times and public interest.
