Diplomatic Immunity has always been emphasized in western countries. However, was originated by Islamic Law 1400 years ago with the advent of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). Islamic Law formulated the bases of rights of diplomats, bestowed privileges to envoy of other countries, presented some ideal examples which has much importance and purposeful effects among the different nations, cultures throughout the history of Muslim Ummah. Islamic Law has formulated foundations and rules to protect the diplomats from any sort of harm, killing, damaging their properties instead they must be given privilege and protocol to perform their duties as diplomats in host countries without any fear. Furthermore, even after providing maximum protection, if envoys face a problem, there are laws to protect them in every type of situation including war and peace, chaos and harmony. Additionally, it has never been neglected in the Jurisprudence of Islam, that how the diplomats have to show in the best manner to represent one’s own nation.
