This paper seeks to offer the author’s observation of the current state and the development of contemporary fiqh in Singapore. It begins by providing theological basis for a fiqh that is contemporary and contextual to the changing time and place. The observation concludes that the state of a contemporary fiqh development is slow, if not stagnated. It then identifies the challenges that need to be overcome in order to change the current state of a contemporary fiqh. Finally, the paper proceeds with some recommendations for overcoming the challenges and improvement to the current state.
