Development in information communication technology (ICT) has created new ways for everyone to interact and conduct business. It is no doubt that Internet is one of the most popular mediums of communication in cyber environment. However, this medium can also create more opportunities to people to commit various types of offences and wrong doings. The offences include cybercrimes, violation of privacy, defamation, pornography and insult on Islam.

For Muslims, the above offences and wrongdoings are unethical and against Islamic value. Thus, this paper will discuss some legal issues on the above offences and wrong doings by referring to the relevant laws and cases. The objective of this paper is to highlight that Islamic value is very important and complying with the laws (civil and Islamic) will help to prevent crimes in the cyber environment.
