The Sixth Age like all of the Seven Ages of this Calendar, is genuinely unique, and unlike any of the other Ages both in the way the Age Number itself is expressed in history, and in the unique beliefs and disciplines which arose in the Age, from 750 A.D. to 1530 A.D..Incredible but true, but virtually all the 6th Age Buddhists teachers, spanning both the many hundreds of years and miles between them, all expressed their disciplines based on the number Six. Not five, not seven, but Six. This book describes the history of both the 6th Age of Buddhist traditions and developments, and also the history of the series of primary 'Wise Men of the East' for all of the previous Five Ages, with for instance Gotama Buddha being correctly the primary 'Wise Man of the East' of the 4th Age. This book opens up a new view of Buddhism, as not just a belief system and its disciplines founded only by the Gotama Buddha, but as part of an ongoing process of religious development and of a series of teachers mostly from the East, spanning back ward and forward in time for all the Ages! I trace and describe this world wide super natural effort and series of seven Age Templates, in my Age books, spanning 3150 B.C. to 2050 A.D..

This manuscript will attempt to clarify a major misconception that has gained widespread acceptance in some academic circles. The misconception is that the Muslim judge judges blindly according to a rigid set of outdated laws without giving due consideration to what is in the best interest of either the public or in upholding the rights of a person.
Finally, it will seek to demonstrate how the ethical standards that govern the conduct and office of the qadi reinforces the public trust and confidence in the Islamic judicial system as a whole. Given that the Islamic judiciary does not have the powers of the sword or the purse - powers that are reserved for the executive and the legislative branches of government - respect is said to be the greatest strength of the institution itself.Islamic law requires a Muslim judge (hakim or qadi) to conform to the highest ethical standards both in their personal conduct and in issuing rulings that are just and seen to be just.
