I am writing to you in regards to your recent ruling on Oklahoma’s Sharia Law ban. In your ruling you had made the following statement.
Furthermore, plaintiff has presented testimony that “Sharia Law” is not actually “law”, but is religious traditions that provide guidance to plaintiff and other Muslims regarding the exercise of their faith.
It appears the plaintiff Muneer Awad is not being honest with you, and his religion does encourage Muslims to lie. I suggest that you purchase a book entitled “Reliance of the Traveller” A Classic Manual of Islamic Scared Law, it will clearly show you that Sharia Law has a major legal aspect. The book has the stamp of approval of Egypt’s Al Azhar, the highest learning Islamic school in the world.
First I will show you that Islamic Law allows, what we consider to be lying.
“Reliance of the Traveller, A Classical Manual of Islamic Sacred Law”
HOLDING ONE’S TONGUE CHAPTER
(Ruling) r8.2 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,
“He who settles disagreements between people to bring about good or says something commendable is not a liar.”
“I did not hear him permit untruth in anything people say, except for three things: war, settling disagreements, and a man talking with his wife or she with him (A: in smoothing over differences).”
Another statement you made in the Court document, was the following.
Furthermore, plaintiff has presented testimony that “Sharia Law” is not actually “law”, but is religious traditions that provide guidance to plaintiff and other Muslims regarding the exercise of their faith. Plaintiff has presented testimony that the obligations that “Sharia Law” imposes are not legal obligations but are obligations of a personal and private nature dictated by faith.
I don’t mean any disrespect, but you are mistaken. This is the punishment for theft.
Koran verse 005.038 (Yusuf Ali is the translator)
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.
Islamic Law also dicriminates against women.
Koran verse 004.011
YUSUFALI:Allah (thus) directs you as regards your Children’s (Inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females: if only daughters, two or more, their share is two-thirds of the inheritance; if only one, her share is a half. For parents, a sixth share of the inheritance to each, if the deceased left children; if no children, and the parents are the (only) heirs, the mother has a third; if the deceased Left brothers (or sisters) the mother has a sixth. (The distribution in all cases (‘s) after the payment of legacies and debts. Ye know not whether your parents or your children are nearest to you in benefit. These are settled portions ordained by Allah; and Allah is All-knowing, Al-wise.
Koran verse 2:282
YUSUFALI:Let his guardian dictate faithfully, and get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her.
Those are just a few examples of the legal aspects of Sharia Law, and I hope you take the time to read the book that I suggested. It can be purchased HERE.
The real reason Mr. Awad is against SQ755, is because Muslims are trying to get Sharia Law used in US Courts. A recent example involving a rape case can in NJ can be seen HERE.
I would also like to provide you with some very important information, about the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Recently a Federal Judge had stated that they have ties to the Islamic terrorist organization Hamas. These Court Documents can be viewed HERE.
CAIR members might appear as well intentioned American, but their goal is quite the opposite. Their plan is to slowly advance Islam, until it takesover from within. Here is a statement from Omar Ahmad, one of the Co-Founders of CAIR.
Co-Founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations
President and CEO of Silicon Expert Technologies.
Former Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) Officer.
Omar Ahmad was captured on FBI surveillance tapes at Hamas meetings in the U.S.A. during 1993 explaining that the IAP could not, for political reasons, admit its support for Hamas, and then discussing how the Hamas agenda could be cloaked and advanced. Omar Ahmad’s airfare and hotel bills for this meeting were paid for by the Holy Land Foundation.
“Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam …Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the
only accepted religion on Earth.”
Judging from what I know about Islam and CAIR, I would have to say that Mr Awad knows full well that Sharia Law has a major legal aspect to it. It is even used to govern non-Muslims (Page 607 in Reliance of Traveller). Him and his organization have mastered how to use our freedoms against us, to advance their agenda. I urge you not to aid this organization in their quest for an Islamic USA. I also urge you to question Mr. Awad on his claim that Sharia does not have a legal aspect, and if perjury charges are in order, please follow through with them.
