Here is what Imam Rauf recently had to say about Sharia, to the Jordanian newspaper al-Ghad.
عندما يكون لأحد ما شكوى في الشرق الأوسط، ويقول “أنه يجب أن يكون هناك قانون”، فهو يعرف أن هذا القانون موجود. القانون الوحيد الذي يحتاجه المسلم موجود في القرآن الكريم والحديث الشريف. لقد سألني الناس مباشرة بعد هجمة الحادي عشر من أيلول/سبتمبر لماذا تتخذ الحركات العديدة ذات الأجندات السياسية أسماء دينية؟ لماذا تسمى “الأخوان المسلمين” أو “حزب الله” أو “حماس” أو حركة المقاومة الإسلامية؟ أجيبهم أن التوجه الإسلامي نحو القانون والعدالة يبدأ باللغة الدينية لأن الحركات العلمانية قد فشلت في إيصال ما يريده المسلمون، وهو الحياة والحرية والسعي وراء السعادة.
Here is the paragraph translated to English.
When a complaint is in the Middle East, says that “there must be a law,” he knows that this law exists. The only law that the Muslim needs exist in the Holy Quran and the Hadith. I have asked people directly after the onslaught of atheist th of September to take what many movements with political agendas, religious names? Why called the “Muslim Brotherhood” or “Party of God” or “Hamas” or Islamic Resistance Movement? I tell them that the trend towards Islamic law and justice begins in religious movements, because secularism has failed to deliver what he wants Muslims, the life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
In the same article Rauf mentioned that Obama had quoted the “Noble Hadith”. The following is the verse that Obama had quoted.
“None of you [truly] believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.” Hadith in al-Bukhari
Now that Ruaf has stated he respects the Bukhari ahadith, lets take a quick look at what else they say.
Bukhari Hadith Volume 6, Book 60, Number 80:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Verse:–“You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind.” means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 182:
When it was the day of the battle of Al-Ahzab (i.e. the clans), Allah’s Apostle said, “O Allah! Fill their (i.e. the infidels’) houses and graves with fire as they busied us so much that we did not perform the prayer (i.e. ‘Asr) till the sun set.”
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 259:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle sent us in a mission (i.e. am army-unit) and said,
“If you find so-and-so and so-and-so, burn both of them with fire.” When we intended to depart, Allah’s Apostle said, “I have ordered you to burn so-and-so and so-and-so, and it is none but Allah Who punishes with fire, so, if you find them, kill them.”
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 280:
Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri:
When the tribe of Bani Quraiza was ready to accept Sad’s judgment, Allah’s Apostle sent for Sad who was near to him. Sad came, riding a donkey and when he came near, Allah’s Apostle said (to the Ansar), “Stand up for your leader.” Then Sad came and sat beside Allah’s Apostle who said to him. “These people are ready to accept your judgment.” Sad said, “I give the judgment that their warriors should be killed and their children and women should be taken as prisoners.” The Prophet then remarked, “O Sad! You have judged amongst them with (or similar to) the judgment of the King Allah.”
