As a news hound I have had the growing protests against Sharia law that have been cropping up around the United States recently. Apparently there are a lot of people who think that there is an effort to impose this law on the citizens of this country and these people also think that if there is no protest against the efforts to impose Sharia law on us would succeed. 

A short debate I got into with one of my followers has caused me to look more thoroughly into this issue. She linked an article about a man who walked into the home of his daughter and shot her in the head. As it turns out this was because he felt she became too “westernized” and that the shooting is what is commonly referred to as an honor killing.

It is not the first time this kind of criminal act has been in the news. There have been ficitional episodes that dealt with this subject. What this man did was clearly against US law and he has been charged with murder.

Since the majority of people in this country would clearly be against imposing Sharia law on them and our constitution would clearly probhibit the imposition of what is obviously a religous belief system upon us, that people who were protesting against Sharia law were either wasting their time or engaging in Islamphobia. 

My follower seems to believe otherwise. It is her strong opinion that there is an intense effort to impost Sharia law upon the citizens of the United States and has urged me to at least look at both sides of the issue.

I have decided to do just that as a start, I am listing just exactly what Sharia law is, according to one article:

Sharia Law

Shariah law

Sharia law is the law of Islam. The Sharia (also spelled Shari’a or Shariah) law is cast from Muhammad‘s words, called “Hadith,” and actions, called “Sunnah,” and the Quran. Sharia law itself cannot be altered, but the interpretation of Sharia law, called “Fiqh,” by imams is given some latitude.

As a legal system, Sharia law is exceptionally broad. While other legal codes regulate public behavior, Sharia law regulates public behavior, private behavior, and even private beliefs. Of all legal systems in the world today, Sharia law is the most intrusive and restrictive, especially against women. According to Sharia law:

As a legal system, Sharia law is exceptionally broad. While other legal codes regulate public behavior, Sharia law regulates public behavior, private behavior, and even private beliefs. Of all legal systems in the world today, Sharia law is the most intrusive and restrictive, especially against women. According to Sharia law:

• Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand (evidence: graphic).
• Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by dea†h.
• Criticizing Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by dea†h.
• Criticizing or denying Allah is punishable by dea†h (see Allah moon god).
• A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by dea†h (Compulsion in religion).
• A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by dea†h.
• A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by dea†h.
• A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
• Girls’ clitoris should be cut (Muhammad‘s words, Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251).
• A girl or woman who has been raрed cannot testify in court against her raрist(s).
• Testimonies of 4 male witnesses are required to prove the raрe of a girl or woman.
• A girl or woman who alleges raрe without producing 4 male witnesses is guilty of adultery.
• A girl or woman found guilty of adultery is punishable by dea†h (see “Islamophobia“).
• A man convicted of raрe can have his conviction dismissed by marrying his victim.
• A woman can have 1 husband, who can have up to 4 wives; Muhammad can have more.
• A man can beat his wife for insubordination (see Religion of Peace).
• A man can unilaterally divorce his wife; a wife needs her husband’s consent to divorce.
• A divorced wife loses custody of all children over 6 years of age or when they exceed it.
• A woman’s testimony in court, allowed in property cases, carries ½ the weight of a man’s.
• A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits (see Mathematics in Quran).
• A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to fitnah (see Errors in Quran).
• A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
• Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah – i.e., be “Halal.”

Now this last one got my attention because there is another religon that does close to the same thing. The representatives are usually those with white shirts and black ties that come banging on my front door when I am trying to take a nap.
• Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.

Now as I said before, I  believe these laws would not make it into our legal system simply because of the severity of them. They also go against the beliefs of the majority of us in this country.

Again, however, there are those out there who think it is possible for this to happen and for that reason I have decided to look into this in depth and make my impressions known here.

Stay tuned

    Sharia law isn’t all rainbow & unicorns.

    This is not about denying ones religious rights either..

    Most of the Muslims who want to bring Sharia Law here is MEN. Ask a man why.. see what answer you get.
