Is there any place for Sharia law in state law?

Background and context

Sharia is the body of Islamic religious law. The term means "way" or "path to the water source"; it is the legal framework within which the public and private aspects of life are regulated for those living in a legal system based on fiqh (Islamic principles of jurisprudence) and for Muslims living outside the domain. Sharia deals with many aspects of day-to-day life, including politics, economics, banking, business, contracts, family, sexuality, hygiene, and social issues.

Significant debate surrounds whether Sharia law has a legitimate place in state government, particularly within the Middle East and Muslim world. Even larger and more developed states such as Egypt and Saudi Arabia, this question generates significant attention.

See Wikipedia's article on Sharia law for more background.
