There is a HUGE disconnect between what the author of the attached article thinks the Sharia is and what I know about Shari’a. This is the cause of huge confusion about the Shari’a. What the author has pointed out in the comparison are the opinions of Muslim scholars and their interpretation of the teachings of Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). We do not have to agree with their opinions and interpretations. I directly go to the source; Qur’an and my beloved Muhammad (peace be upon him) and I do not find such things there. The Constitution of USA and the teachings of Qur’an are absolutely in sink. No difference what so ever.
For God’s sake do not call people’s opinion, the Shari’a. This is what the Islamophobes and the terrorists have in common, the misinterpretation of Islamic teachings.
I am a Sufi and do not see and practice Islam the way many narrow minded, rigid and fanatics hate monger see and practice Islam.
Thanks for sharing.
The 1st Amendment protects the people’s right to practice religion, to speak freely, to assemble (meet), to address the government and of the press to publish.
The Koran does not grant equal freedom to other religions.
YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
The 8th Amendment guarantees that punishments will be fair, and not cruel, and that extraordinarily large fines will not be set.
Excuse me Syed, but this sounds pretty cruel to me.
YUSUFALI: As to the thief, Male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of example, from Allah, for their crime: and Allah is Exalted in power.
The 13th Amendment abolished slavery in the entire United States. Well, the Koran clearly advocates slavery.
YUSUFALI: Never should a believer kill a believer; but (If it so happens) by mistake, (Compensation is due): If one (so) kills a believer, it is ordained that he should free a believing slave, and pay compensation to the deceased’s family, unless they remit it freely. If the deceased belonged to a people at war with you, and he was a believer, the freeing of a believing slave (Is enough). If he belonged to a people with whom ye have treaty of Mutual alliance, compensation should be paid to his family, and a believing slave be freed. For those who find this beyond their means, (is prescribed) a fast for two months running: by way of repentance to Allah: for Allah hath all knowledge and all wisdom.
YUSUFALI: Ladies said in the City: “The wife of the (great) ‘Aziz is seeking to seduce her slave from his (true) self: Truly hath he inspired her with violent love: we see she is evidently going astray.”
In conclusion we see that Syed is just another lying Muslim who cannot be trusted. Sorry Syed, we are on to your kind and within the law you will be defeated!
I would like to ask all of the readers to shower Syed with some “Logan Love” and let him know that we will not fall for the religion of peace lie anymore.
Here is his contact information.
