Aceh Provincial Regulation No. 5 of 2000 on the Implementation of Islamic Shari'a

This provincial regulation obliges the regional government of Aceh to develop, guide, and monitor, the implementation of shari'a to the best of its abilities. The regulation defines implementation as including, among other things, aqidah (correct doctrine), ibadah (ritual worship), mu'amalah (commercial and civil matters), akhlak (goodness), Islamic education and the defence of Islam.

Chapter V of the regulation specifies punishments, including imprisonment, fines, and adat sanctions (art 19), but hudud penalties are not included.
