Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA): Helping Muslims Live by Sharia

Unfortunately we continue to see that Muslims in America are in support of Islamic Law (Sharia Law). Today the target is the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA), which is located at 4801 El Camino Ave., Suite # C, Carmichael, CA. They also have another location in Cairo Egypt. Lets take a closer look at them.

AMJA Goals
Issuing fatawa (religious formal opinions or rulings) pertaining to the cases and queries submitted to the Assembly according to the rulings of Shari’ah.

Holding training courses for the Imams and directors of Islamic centers in all juristic fields such as issues of family, finance, and legitimate judging, etc.

Establishing the AMJA fund for Zakah (poor-due) and social joint liability, within the limits allowed by the rules and regulations in addition to getting the approval of the authorities responsible for that.

What they do not tell you is that Zakat is divided into eight categories. The seventh is those fighting for Allah.

From the Reliance of the Traveller. Zakat Chapter.

THOSE FIGHTING FOR ALLAH
h8.17  The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster.

Sharia Law should be outlawed in America. Then Muslims who call for Sharia shall be arrested, and deported if possible. Sharia loving Muslims are to be looked upon as enemies of the state. Just like Nazis were.

AMJA Distinctive Features
Specialization: All AMJA members are holders of Ph.D. in Islamic Shari’ah.

Lets take a look of some of their rulings.

Women:
Women should not travel alone, this sounds real modern…

Woman’s Travel with no Mahram. Question
Asslamu alaikum,

I thank you for this wonderful website. I ask Allah to grant you success, and help you. Please, I need your advice about this issue.

I am a graduate of architectural engineering college, and I am 23 years old. I want to travel abroad, e.g. UK, or USA, for four years in order to continue my education, that is, obtain a doctorate degree, and I will travel with no mahram (a person whom a woman can never marry e.g. her farther, and her own husband). Is it permissible to do so? Note that I will travel by plane, which means that the travel will definitely be safe. In addition, my dream is to continue my education.

Fatwa
In the name of Allah, Ar-Rahmaan, Ar-Raheem.

All praise is due to Allah, and peace and blessing be upon the Messenger of Allah, his household, his companions, and his followers.

The basic principle is that a woman is not allowed to travel without a maharam. One of the proofs of this ruling is the following hadith: Ibn Abbas may Allah be pleased with him narrated the prophet sala Allah alayhi wa sallam said, “It is not permissible for a woman to travel except with a mahhrm.” Then a man got up and said, “O messenger of Allah! I have enlisted in the army for such-and-such Ghazwa, and my wife is proceeding for Hajj.” The messenger of Allah said, “Go, and perform the Hajj with your wife.” Narrated by Al-Bukhari. The prophet sala Allah alayhi wa sallam commanded this man to leave Jihad, and proceed for Hajj with his wife though he was enlisted in Ghazwa, and his wife’s travel was for offering an act of obedience and piety to Allah, that is, Hajj, and was not for a tour, or suspicious travel.

O my daughter, your issue is more complex because your travel will be to a non-Muslim country, and for many years. Thus, a sane person will not say that such travel is permissible. O my daughter, the happy person is the one who learns from other people’s experience. In fact, we know a woman who disobeyed the command of the messenger sala Allah alayhi wa sallam, and traveled to the West with no a mahram, thus, Allah did not bless her travel. In addition, she is still suffering from its evil consequences. Therefore, be patient until Allah grants you an opportunity for lawful travel, i.e. travel with a husband or a mahram. Finally, O my daughter, you should know that what Allah chooses for His slave is better than what the slave chooses for himself. May Allah increase your knowledge and help you apply it. And Allah knows best.

Women should not shake the hands of men. Which is backed up by a poll, that can be seen HERE.

Shaking men’s hands. Question:
Is it prohibited or permissible for women to shake hands with men? I meet a lot of men during the day and I find it embarrassing to leave their hands forwarded as I may make them dislike the religion for that.

Fatwa
In the name of Allaah, the Benevolent, the Merciful. All praise is due to Allaah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allaah, his family, companions, and those loyal to him. Shaking hands of foreign men is unlawful because of what al-Tabarani and al-Bayhaqi reported from the way of Ma’qal bin Yasaar  who reported that the Prophet  said: “If one of you were to be struck in the head with an iron needle, it would be better for him than if he were to touch a woman he is not allowed to” and because of the hadeeth of Aisha who said: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) would test the believing women who emigrated to him with the aayah (interpretation of the meaning): “O Prophet! When believing women come to you to give you the bay’ah (pledge), that they will not associate anything in worship with Allaah, that they will not steal, that they will not commit illegal sexual intercourse, that they will not kill their children, that they will not utter slander, intentionally forging falsehood (i.e., by making illegal children belong to their husbands), and that they will not disobey you in any ma’ruf (Islamic monotheism and all that which Islam ordains), then accept their bay’ah and ask Allaah to forgive them. Verily Allaah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [al-Mumtahinah 60:12] ‘Aa’ishah said: “So whoever of the believing women agreed to these conditions, the Messenger of Allaah  would say to her: ‘I have accepted your bay’ah by words.’ By Allaah, his hand never touched the hand of any woman when accepting their bay’ah; he accepted their bay’ah by saying ‘I have accepted your bay’ah on this basis.” [Sahih Bukhari: 11/354 and Sahih Muslim: 10/13]. This is the principle and foundation that no one must leave. In addition, we live in a society that understands the concept of multiculturalism and religious diversity and respect toward those with different cultures and religions in most cases. So, whoever becomes weak in his heart in one situation needs to ask for the forgiveness of Allaah, most High, because whoever commits a sin or is unjust toward himself then seeks Allaah’s forgiveness he shall find Allaah Oft-forgiving and Most merciful. We ask Allaah to grant everyone success. And Allaah, most High, knows best.

Where is the respect for non-Muslims? As usual Islam is a one-way street.

Issues of Muslim Minorities

AMJA tells a Muslim truck driver to find another job, because he had to transport empty bottles that once contained alcohol. He should have been fired for refusing to do what was required of him.

A truck driver hauling empty alcohol bottles. Question:
I am a young Muslim man working as a truck driver in a Western country. One time, they filled my truck with empty glass bottles, but these are used for being filled with alcoholic beverages, so I refused to transport them because that is against my religion, but some of the brothers told me that it is permissible for me to transport them as long as they are empty. What is the opinion of Shari`ah?

Fatwa
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful,

All praise is due to Allah and may peace and blessing be upon the Messenger of Allah.

To proceed: May Allah increase you in eagerness to obey, in seeking the truth and in being successful.

There is no doubt that carrying empty bottles to be thrown away is a lighter [offense] than carrying bottles full of alcohol to be delivered to drinkers or to places where alcohol is prepared for people to drink and the difference between the two situations is obvious.

So, if this carrying of empty bottles is an incidental occurrence, of a passing, temporary nature, then there would be no blame on you, so keep doing your job. If, on the other hand, your work predominately consists of carrying empty alcohol bottles to be discarded, we advise you to look for another job that would keep you away from doubtful matters.

We ask Allah to grant success and accuracy to us and to you.

Here we have a Muslim man who was told to cut his daughter from his inheritance, because she left Islam. What a nice showing of freedom and support.

A daughter disobeying her father and living the life of the disbelievers. Question:
Peace be upon you. There is a Muslim father who lives in America and he has a daughter from a foreign woman. They separated and the girl has gone to live with her mother. She has left Islam and followed a life of trivial diversions. To shock her father, she has gone to live with a foreign man in one house. He has tried in many ways to bring her back, and to call the young man to Islam so that he can marry her on the Sunnah of Allah and His Messenger, but he has refused. The father later found out that his daughter is pregnant. He now asks: What is the proper Islamic way to handle the situation with his daughter, in terms of his name which she still bears and in regards to inheritance.

We hope, or rather, we implore you to provide a comprehensive response to the question. Thank you.

Fatwa
All praise is for Allah, and may peace and blessing be upon the Messenger of Allah.

He must be patient in calling them to Islam, however, as long as she remains an apostate, she has no share in his inheritance. The issue of inheritance is simple in the West because every individual is able to control it as he pleases. As for his name, there is nothing against him because of it, so he should be patient—may Allah make him patient—and let him make plenty of istighfar (pray for forgiveness) and pray to Allah for her.

And Allah Almighty knows best and from Him is all success.

A Muslim should not eat at a restaurant that serves wine, or “forbidden food”. Nor should they sit at the table of people who drink wine. Is this the assimilating part?

Eating in restaurants which serve wine. Question:
In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful

Peace, blessings and mercy of Allah be upon you.

What is the ruling about going to restaurants that serve wine with avoiding eating the Haram or forbidden foods and sitting on the same table with people who would drink wine? Jazakumu Allahu Khairan.

Fatwa
In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful

Peace, blessings and mercy of Allah be upon you.

Praise be to Allah, prayers and peace be upon His kind prophet, family members, companions, and true followers till the Day of Judgment.

It is worthy for a Muslim to avoid going to places that doubts and suspicions spin around, as the prophet, prayers and peace of Allah be upon him, said: “And whoever avoids suspicions (doubts), then he has freed himself for his religion and honor, and whoever has fallen in suspicions (doubts), then he has fallen in the prohibited”.

However, if it is rare to find a restaurant in some country that does not serve wine, then it is possible to go to such restaurants, but one must be very cautious in behavior and manners, to sit on a table with people who would drink wine there, because the prophet, prayers and peace of Allah be upon him, has strongly warned against that, and warning necessitates prohibition, as it is stipulated by the fundamentals of Fiqh. However, a Muslim should not make this as a habit; for he is required not to go to such places as much as he could. Allah is the Objective of our goal to the right and straight path. Allah knows best.

Ditch the music.

can a newly convert sell items banned in Islam? Question: is it permissible for a newly convert to sell forbidden items, like music tapes, that he owned before embracing Islam?

Fatwa
It is better for him to be pious, and to get rid of these cassettes, and to sacrifice his loss in anticipation of Allah`s reward; for if Allah prohibits something, he prohibits its price or value, and whoever sacrifices anything for Allah`s sake, surely Allah will better compensate him!

Hopefully you guys get the point. This organization is not about assimilating, they are about advancing Sharia, and to make matters worse, they recently held their 7th annual Imam training workshop in Texas.

Don’t be surprised when you see a push for Sharia courts across America. There is already one in Texas.

6.Each party will cause the above cause numbers to be abated pending the decision by the arbitrators, and submit the decision of the arbitrators for adoption by the respective courts. The parties will ask the courts to refer the cases for arbitration to Texas Islamic court within “Seven Days” from the establishment of the Texas Islamic Court panel of Arbitrators. The assignment must include ALL cases, including those filed against or on behalf of other family members related to the parties. Each party will notify the other party, Texas Islamic Court, and their respective attorneys, in writing of the assignment of all the above Cause Numbers from the above appropriate District Court to Texas Islamic Court.

They will look to start with civil matters, and then move forward from there. Allowing these courts, is to open Pandora’s Box. We should learn a lesson from the mistakes of the UK. When it comes to Sharia, just say no!

  • AmericanMe

    Why oh why are we allowing a parallel govt operate in Texas? How can this not be against our constitution?

    Oh yeah women are treated equal under islam uhuh yeah I can see that clearly now.

    • http://madaboutmahound.blogspot.com/ Gary Rumain

      Yes, they are treated equal to animals.

      • AmericanMe

        Actually animals may be treated better!

    • admin

      In the UK they went from civil matters to criminal cases such as a stabbing, and domestic violence. The door should have never been opened.

      • http://madaboutmahound.blogspot.com/ Robin Shadowes

        Next step is the chopping off hands and feet. Then later they will push for the whole package of hudud punishments. And it is not their intention that this will apply to arelifters only. Oh no, they have every intent of subjugating the kuffar to it as well. Especially the kuffar I would say.

        • veildmuslimwoman

          Actually Ms. Shadowes, the chopping off of hands is only for the career pick pocket and not for a petty first time offending thief especially if he is one stealing food due to a need like katrina victims, they would not be punished but rather provided for after an assessment of their circumstances.
          If you make a lifestyle out of robbing hardworking families blind then yes, you need your hand chopped off, how dare you. Removing the hand is a punishment and a deterrent but more a deterrent than anything else, do you think people would actually steal if they thought for one second that their hand would get chopped off? Of course not, only if they are crazy – in which case the hudood would NOT apply there are exceptions for the developmentally delayed, but if they were truly evil or sick in their heart, the punishment would apply.
          also, the Quran says that there is NO COMPULSION in religion, what the explanation of this is, means that you cannot force non Muslims to abide by Islam, and you can see this in a study of Islamic spain and even in the history of India. During the ottoman empire the jews would go to jewish jurists, the Christians to be dealt with according to the bible, and the Muslims to the shari’ah – the Quran says to say to the non Muslims ” O kaffiroon, I do not worship what you worship, and you do not worship what I worship, nor will you worship what I worship, nor will I worship what you worship, to you be your religion and to me be mine.” There you have it – true sharia. Look it up if you think I am just trying to sugar coat things, its all there in plain ink http://www.quran.com
          You have your way, we have ours, and it is a way we establish for ourselves w/o forcing it upon you. You fears are unsubstantiated.

          • admin

            Of course you leave out the fact that Islamic Law is to be forced on non–Muslims as per Koran verse 9:29. Here is a clue, I will continue to expose deceptive Muslims like you. I will continue to rally non-Muslims against Islam. Got it?

            In all these places, Muslims carried out atrocities, many of them much more heinous than anything the Christian populations could mete out.

    • Me oh my

      Get out of our country and take your qurack with you. We are a Christian nation. We dont want your dirt here.

      • veildmuslimwoman

        O Christian, where is your Christ-like behavior, or did you forget? “By loving kindness have a drawn them near?” “Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth” I have read the bible from cover to cover and never heard Jesus speak this way of any one’s religion. Jesus was compassionate and humble and has been several times likened to a “lamb” whereas you are behaving more like an ass (HEE! HAW!), what is this O christian? Do you know the true Message of Jesus Christ? The Muslims do, its in the quran. the Quran tells us to relate the story of Mary ( in a chapter named after her)it discusses how the angel gabriel came to her, spoke a word to her from her Lord and became pregnant with no man having touched her, divine conception, how she was driven by her labor pains to a far place, delivering him in solitude, returning home where the Jews accused her of fornication, then Jesus spoke in defense of his mother and said the he was a caller to the One God, He called people to worship him alone and to do good deeds,peace be upon him the day he was born and the day that he shall die. He healed the sick, made the lame walk, raised the dead, all by the power and permission of his Lord. Sounds to me that you are about as christian as a pagan Easter Sunday celebration, you know, christian in name only but not in reality. You don’t want our dirt here you say? But doesn’t your bible say you were made form dirt, and that someday you will be nothing more than dirt, I will take that as a compliment, the earth is quite an amazing thing and I am honored to be from it and returning to it someday. “From dust you came and to dust you shall return” and btw, jesus is MORE than a Homeboy to us.

          1 John 2: 18-24 Warning Against Antichrists
          18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
          20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.[d] 21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. 22 Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist—he denies the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

          24 See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is what he promised us—even eternal life.

          2 John 7-11
          7 Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8 Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. 9 Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take him into your house or welcome him. 11 Anyone who welcomes him shares in his wicked work.

          John 14:5-7
          New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

          Jesus the Way to the Father
          5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
          6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really knew me, you would know[a] my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

          veildmuslimwoman- the isa of the qur’an is NOT Jesus of The Holy Bible! The qur’an says Jesus was merely a a prophet, a man. The Bible tells us differently. The qur’an says Jesus wasn’t Crucified and Resurrected, we know better. You follow an EVIL Cult, a false prophet, the antichrist, hopefully you will find the truth before its to late for you.

          The Jesus in the Koran is not the Jesus of Christianity. Because Jesus would not want his people dominated by Muslims as the Koran calls for. If you think Jesus would have approved of Mohammad the rapist you are in series denial.

      If women are treated so badly in Islam can you please explain to me why the conversion rate in america for women versus men is 6 to 1?
      Yes, former models, cheerleaders, trainers, current doctors, lawyers, jurists – they are all coming to Islam in crowds because it is a religion that honors the woman and dignifies her, teaching her the roper respect for herself and her Lord. The woman is not allowed to travel w/o a man to protect her not to stifle her. Celebrities travel with a protective entourage of chaperons and security guards regularly, so does our president and all living former presidents, apparently Islam gives women the “presidential treatment.” A survey confirmed that 98% of all american women have been molested on the job ( myself included) and how many women per second are raped beaten and kidnapped in this country if only because they are attractive and physically weaker than the average man? and these women are always found alone, I cannot think of one case ( not saying it is not out there) where this happened to a woman walking with a man. Islam is practical and knows the nature and short comings of mankind and takes preventative measures for the safety and purity of the society.

      • http://SurroundThemwithPrayer@blogspot.com Reverend Dan

        The Qur’an:
        Qur’an (2:282) – Establishes that a woman’s testimony is worth only half that of a man’s in court (there is no “he said/she said” gridlock in Islam).

        Qur’an (24:4) – “And those who accuse free women then do not bring four witnesses (to adultery), flog them…”

        Qur’an (24:13) – “Why did they not bring four witnesses of it? But as they have not brought witnesses they are liars before Allah.”

        Qur’an (2:223) – “Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will…” There is no such thing as rape in marriage, as a man is permitted unrestricted sexual access to his wives.

        Bukhari (5:59:462) – The background for the Qur’anic requirement of four witnesses to adultery. Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, was accused of cheating [on her polygamous husband]. Three witnesses corroborated the event, but Muhammad did not want to believe it, and so established the arbitrary rule that four witnesses are required.

        The Qur’an:
        Qur’an (4:11) – (Inheritance) “The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females” (see also verse 4:176). In Islam, sexism is mathematically established.

        Qur’an (2:282) – (Court testimony) “And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women.” Muslim apologists offer creative explanations to explain why Allah felt that a man’s testimony in court should be valued twice as highly as a woman’s, but studies consistently show that women are actually less likely to tell lies than men, meaning that they would make more reliable witnesses.

        Qur’an (2:228) – “and the men are a degree above them [women]”

        Qur’an (5:6) – “And if ye are unclean, purify yourselves. And if ye are sick or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it” Men are to rub dirt on their hands if there is no water to purify them following casual contact with a woman (such as shaking hands).

        Qur’an (24:31) – Women are to lower their gaze around men, so they do not look them in the eye. (To be fair, men are told to do the same thing in the prior verse).

        Qur’an (2:223) – “Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will…” A man has dominion over his wives’ bodies as he does his land. This verse is overtly sexual. There is some dispute as to whether it is referring to the practice of anal intercourse, which it has been used historically to justify. If this is what Muhammad meant, however, then it would appear to contradict what he said in Muslim (8:3365).

        Qur’an (4:3) – (Wife-to-husband ratio) “Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four” Inequality by numbers.

        Qur’an (53:27) – “Those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names.” Angels are sublime beings, and would therefore be male.

        Qur’an (4:24) and Qur’an (33:50) – A man is permitted to take women as sex slaves outside of marriage. Note that the verse distinguishes wives from captives (those whom they right hand possesses).

        From the Hadith:

        Bukhari (6:301) – “[Muhammad] said, ‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?’ They replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence.’”

        Bukhari (6:301) – continued – “[Muhammad said] ‘Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?’ The women replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her religion.’” Allah has made women deficient in the practice of their religion as well, by giving them menstrual cycles.

        Bukhari (2:28) – Women comprise the majority of Hell’s occupants. This is important because the only women in heaven ever mentioned by Muhammad are the virgins who serve the sexual desires of men. (A weak Hadith, Kanz al-`ummal, 22:10, even suggests that 99% of women go to Hell).

        Bukhari (62:81) – “The Prophet said: “‘The stipulations most entitled to be abided by are those with which you are given the right to enjoy the (women’s) private parts (i.e. the stipulations of the marriage contract).’” In other words, the most important thing that a woman brings to a marriage is between her legs.

        Bukhari (62:58) – A woman presents herself in marriage to Muhammad, but he does not find her attractive, so he “donates” her on the spot to another man.

        Muslim (4:1039) – “A’isha said [to Muhammad]: ‘You have made us equal to the dogs and the asses’”

        Abu Dawud (2:704) – “…the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: When one of you prays without a sutrah, a dog, an ass, a pig, a Jew, a Magian, and a woman cut off his prayer, but it will suffice if they pass in front of him at a distance of over a stone’s throw.”

        Abu Dawud (2155) – Women are compared to slaves and camels with regard to the “evil” in them.

        Ishaq 593 – “As for Ali, he said, ‘Women are plentiful, and you can easily change one for another.’” Ali was raised as a son by Muhammad. He was also the 4th caliph. This comment was made in Muhammad’s presence without a word of rebuke from him.

        Ishaq 593 – “From the captives of Hunayn, Allah’s Messenger gave [his son-in-law] Ali a slave girl called Baytab and he gave [future Caliph] Uthman a slave girl called Zaynab and [future Caliph] Umar another.” – Even in this world, Muhammad treated women like party favors, handing out slave girls to his cronies for sex.

        Tabari VIII:117 – The fate of more captured farm wives, whom the Muslims distributed amongst themselves as sex slaves: “Dihyah had asked the Messenger for Safiyah when the Prophet chose her for himself… the Apostle traded for Safiyah by giving Dihyah her two cousins. The women of Khaybar were distributed among the Muslims.”

        Tabari IX:137 – “Allah granted Rayhana of the Qurayza to Muhammad as booty.”

        Ishaq 969 – “Men were to lay injunctions on women lightly, for they were prisoners of men and had no control over their persons.” – This same text also justifies beating women for flirting.

        Tabari Vol 9, Number 1754 – “Treat women well, for they are [like] domestic animals with you and do not possess anything for themselves.” From Muhammad’s ‘Farewell Sermon’

        Doesn’t sound like islam or mohammed treat women to well to me

        Quote:
        how many women per second are raped beaten and kidnapped in this country if only because they are attractive and physically weaker than the average man? and these women are always found alone, I cannot think of one case ( not saying it is not out there) where this happened to a woman walking with a man.
        end

        Women are kidnapped, raped and beaten when they are alone not because they are weak, but because men are criminal.
        By your logic, every woman who walks alone should be raped, beaten and perhaps murdered, with no penalty incurred by the man or men who do the crimes.
        By your logic, you would force all women to be escorted and abolish all laws against rape, assault, murder and theft when these things happen to NON-MUSLIM women.
        You are advocating the confinement, virtual imprisonment of women.
        You are advocating rape.
        You are advocating all crimes against women and all civil rights violations of women.
        Islam is profane.
        And you, are nothing but an advocate of chaos, chaos, and chaos.

    Sharia comes from the depths of hell, and should be considered treason against the United States and prosecuted as such.

    • b

      It is TREASON because it teaches to take over the government where it resides. Wake up people!

  • ’nuff already

    This is soooooooooooooo maddening! Sharia is not at all compatible with western democracy. If you have not already done so be sure to take a look at an article favorably comparing sharia to our constitution as penned by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf in the April 19, 2009 issue of the Huff Post. I believe the article it titled: What’s Right About Sharia. Average Americans suck this stuff up because they are ignorant about Islam. Please continue to educate the masses on the reality…

  • eib

    Sharia is a code based on the idea that the law = fear.
    There is no justice in it, only vengeance.
    Confession, repentance and amendment of life are the Christian, and mostly Western model of redemption.
    In Islam, there is only violence and death for body and soul.
    Will you be ruled by fear or by reason.
    Because reason is the Western Way.

  • GNOSTIC

    There is only one government recognized under the constituion. Religous law cannot supersede governmentlaw. Should they allow that, then every pedophile around can marry littl girl, new religious groups would spring up like a gushing oil well all demanding several wifes. If not,the the Govt opens itself up for many lawsuits.
    Furthermore, we our bound to uphold and defend the constitution of the united states from all enemies,forgeign and domestic. So if Sharia Law is allowed in America,it has thus become a domestic enemy.
    Jesus Heals,Mohammad kills.
    Any questions ?

    Zombies asking stupid questions? What else they can? God, these people are hopeless. Endless structures and endless rituals and endless greetings. They proudly say Sharia touches every aspect of life.

    The two narrations caught my attention:

    The woman who asked the question whether she can travel for higher education is really a stupid. What did her education teach in the four years? Probably it reflects also the quality of education she received in her country.

    If my memory is good, a Pakistani Muslim women who was sentenced to prison, also came to US for education and she did create enough scare.

    Another one is related to inheritance and mullah’s reply.

    What is Mullah saying about praying to? A Muslim is not supposed to pray for an infidel. Even with out this, that man and Mullah talk as if no relation exists at all between them.

    Men or women, Islam only thinks in one way; to suck from infidel cultures. One thing about Sharia is non reciprocity nature of it. But there are enough foolish infidels who think that there is no danger if Muslims follow Sharia among themselves.

    “Muslim Jurists of America” is a contradictio in terminis (an oxymoron, say)

    For muslims there is only one law, the one by allah and no man-made law can replace this.

    • eib

      Jurists interpret the law.
      Sharia allows no interpretation. It is perfect and immutable.
      Therefore, there can be no Muslim jurists, because jurisprudence itself is a Western concept.

  • camden

    Why are you acting as if muslims are trying to enfore Shariah law on all Americans? If Muslims don’t want to drink alcohol, eat port, shake hands, have extra-marital relations, pray or do whatever the heck they want what does that have to do with you. Get over it and if you call yourself freedom lovers then let the Muslims do what they want with themselves, you cant force them to drink or eat pork or whatever.

    For the record, there is alot of evil that comes from alcohol, extra-marital relations etc and these laws came to protect people of mankind but people are just too stubborn to realise it with their narrow thinking.

    I pray for all of you.

    • admin

      Because Muslims do want to enforce Sharia on America, and this site clearly documents that.

      http://loganswarning.com/islamsharia-101sharia-mosques-in-america/

      Now point out where anyone here said that Muslims should be forced to drink or eat pork.

      A lot of evil comes from Islam, and you do not dictate what is said on this site. I will continue to speak out against Islam.

      Because they are. The imperatives for the conquest and domination of the infidel are all clear in their scriptures. You comment, but have read little of this site.

      Quote:

      There is no Western law demanding that they eat pork.
      There is no Western law requiring that they shake hands.
      There is no Western law demanding that they have extramarital sex.
      (But their religion permits it abundantly).

      Quote:

      Do whatever “the heck they want”?
      Western civilization is not lawless.
      It has laws all its own.
      A Muslim kills his daughter out of honor.
      A man beheads his wife (permitted in Islam).
      These men have committed murder under Western law.
      And they should be prosecuted under Western law.

      A Muslim man takes two wives.
      In American law that is bigamy and illegal.
      The man should and will be prosecuted.

      A Muslim breaks into and desecrates a church.
      He will be prosecuted under Western law because we believe that the infidels are not supposed “to feel themselves to be subdued.”
      In other words, we don’t live in an Islamic world whose chief objective is to frighten or humiliate others into submission.

        Under Western law,
        1. The slave is free.
        2. Women can walk anywhere, any time alone.
        3. Women are capable of holding political offices and other important positions in the society; in other words, their words have authority.
        4. Men are accountable for what they do as individuals.
        5. The individual has value– now whether that is expressed positively, negatively or destructively, is up to him.

        Sharia has no ethical standing in the West.
        It confounds conduct with intent.
        It seeks to control through fear.
        It imposes chaos where there was once order.
        Muslims claim it applies only to non-Muslims, when worldwide, it is applied to all, Muslim & Non-Muslim alike.
        It has extremely destructive consequences in non-Muslim communities.

        Sharia is chaos.
        Islam is profane. Islam can only generate corruption after crime after corruption.

        • eib

          Excuse me:
          Muslims say that Sharia applies only to Muslims.
          This is one of the biggest lies Muslims tell to the rest of us!
          If you are evaluating Islam, do not take the perspective of one of its adherents.
          Evaluate it on your own individual terms.
          Because if you “revert” to it, you will never practice it on your own time, terms, or for your own desires.
          It will control everything you have, want, or aspire to.

    • eib

      Frankly, I’d be honored if you cursed me.
      I don’t need the blessing of such a benighted individual.
      You really don’t know the difference between the sacred and the profane.
