The truth about Sharia Law.
To me it is ridiculous that Britain allows Sharia Law Courts to operate within their Sovereign Nation or any other country for that matter.
Sharia law (Arabic: شريعة) is the body of Islamic law. The term means “way” or ” path”; it is the legal framework within which the public and some private aspects of life are regulated for those living in a legal system based on Islam:
Here are just a few reasons why Sharia law is horrible for societies and criminal against Humanity:
1. Islam commands that drinkers and gamblers should be whipped.
After going through two previous confusing stages before coming down hard on drinkers and gamblers, the Quran finally prohibits alcohol and gambling in Sura 5:90—91; they do not prescribe the punishment of flogging, but the hadith does. A poor ‘criminal’ was brought to Muhammad who became angry:
The Prophet felt it hard (was angry) and ordered all those who were present in the house, to beat him [the drinker dragged into Muhammad’s presence]. (Bukhari, Punishments, nos. 6774—6775)
Thus, we see no offer of help for the alcoholic when he is dragged before Muhammad and his followers. Why does Muhammad not offer rehabilitation? Why does he immediately go to corporal punishment?
2. Islam allows husbands to beat their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives.
The Quran says:
4:34 . . . If you fear highhandedness from your wives, remind them [of the teaching of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. God is most high and great. (MAS Abdel Haleem, the Qur’an, Oxford UP, 2004)
3. Islam allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge—physical eye for physical eye.
The Quran says:
5:45 And We ordained therein for them: Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth and wounds equal for equal. But if anyone remits the retaliation by way of charity, it shall be for him an expiation. And whosoever does not judge by that which Allah has revealed, such are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers . . .). (Hilali and Khan, The Noble Qur’an, Riyadh: Darussalam, 1996)
4. Islam commands that a male and female thief must have a hand cut off.
5:38 Cut off the hands of thieves, whether they are male or female, as punishment for what they have done—a deterrent from God: God is almighty and wise. 39 But if anyone repents after his wrongdoing and makes amends, God will accept his repentance: God is most forgiving and merciful. (Haleem)
5. Islam commands that highway robbers should be crucified or mutilated.
The Quran says:
5:33 Those who wage war against God and His Messenger and strive to spread corruption in the land should be punished by death, crucifixion, the amputation of an alternate hand and foot or banishment from the land: a disgrace for them in this world, and then a terrible punishment in the Hereafter, 34 unless they repent before you overpower them: in that case bear in mind that God is forgiving and merciful. (Haleem)
6. Islam commands that homosexuals must be executed.
This hadith passage says that homosexuals should be burned alive or have wall pushed on them.
7. Islam orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped and adulterers to be stoned to death.
The Quran says:
24:2 The fornicatress and the fornicator, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. [This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime (illegal sex), but if married persons commit it (illegal sex), the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah’s law]. (Hilali and Khan).
8. Islam orders death for Muslim and possible death for non—Muslim critics of Muhammad and the Quran and even sharia itself.
9. Islam orders apostates to be killed.
10. Islam commands offensive and aggressive and unjust jihad.
Therefore, Islam is violent—unjustly and aggressively.
The nightmare must end.
Sharia oppresses the citizens of Islamic countries – Islam must reform, but the legal hierarchy in Islamic nations will not do this because the judges and legal scholars understand the cost: many passages in the Quran and the hadith must be rejected and this they cannot do.
After all, the Quran came down directly from Allah through Gabriel, so says traditional theology. So how can Islam reform? It can start by rewriting classical fiqh (interpretations of law). That would mean leaving behind the Quran and Muhammad’s example.
How can the legal hierarchy in Islamic nations do this?
Since Islamic law cannot be reformed without doing serious damage to original and authentic Islam — the one taught by Muhammad — then a second plan must be played out:
Sharia must never spread around the world.
At least that much is clear and achievable and the hard evidence in this article demonstrates beyond doubt that Sharia does not benefit any society, for it contains too many harsh rules and punishments.
One of the most tragic and under—reported occurrences in the West in recent years is the existence of a Sharia court in Canada and Muslims are pushing for a Sharia divorce court in Australia as well. Having a court of arbitration if it is based on western law and legal theory is legitimate, but Sharia does not hold to this standard. Whether Sharia is imposed gradually or rapidly, Canada should promptly shut down any Sharia court and Australia should never allow one.
Such a court should never be permitted in the U.S., the rest of the West or anywhere else in the world that is battling Islam.
