Sharia refers to the system of guidance in Islam.  There are penal provisions within Sharia, these are referred to as Hudood.  The Hudood are a very small part of Sharia.  The following is a reasonable summation: 95% of Sharia protects the life, safety and freedom of individuals and of society, especially women, 5% are provisions to deter those who would threaten the freedom of society.
