Sharia Law for Non-Muslims – Chapter 1

May 20, 2010

This is a chapter from an upcoming book: Sharia Law for Non-Muslims. The book was designed to be short, only 48 pages. Many people do not want to know anything about Islam, but experience shows that they may have an interest in Islamic law. Since it doesn’t make any difference which part of a rope you pick up first, Sharia law is a great way to start learning about the true nature of Islam.

CHAPTER 1

Sharia in Europe Today

When you study Islam in Europe today, you are seeing America in 20 years. Why? The actions by Muslims in Europe are based on Sharia law, the same Sharia law that is beginning to be implemented in America today.

    · Traffic cannot move in London streets as Muslims commandeer the streets to pray-a political result based on Sharia law.
    · Entire areas of Europe are no-go zones for non-Muslims, this includes the police. These are Islamic enclaves where only Muslims live. The Muslim-only policy is based on Sharia.
    · In England an Anglican bishop calls for the rule of Islamic law for Muslims. The bishop is obeying Sharia law.
    · In the schools only Islamic approved texts can be used. This is based on Sharia law.
    · Christians may not speak to Muslims about Christianity nor may they hand out literature. This is a political result based on Sharia law enforced by British courts.
    · Rape by Muslims is so prevalent that Sweden has forbidden the police to collect any data in the investigation that would point to Islam. Rape is part of Islamic doctrine as applied to non-Muslim women.
    · In London mass demonstrations by Muslims call for the end of British law and Sharia law to rule all people. This political action is based on Sharia.
    · In some English hospitals, during Ramadan fast (an Islamic religious event) non-Muslims cannot eat where a Muslim can see them. The submission of non-Muslims is based on Sharia law.
    · At British hospitals, Muslim women are treated only as Sharia law demands.
    · If a Dane says that he is proud to be Danish near a Muslim, it can be seen as hate speech and racism. This is in accordance to Sharia law.
    Sharia in America Today
    Here are current and historical events in America that are driven by Sharia law:
    · On September 11, 2001 jihadists attacked and destroyed the World Trade Center. This was in compliance to the laws of jihad found in the Sharia law. The attack was a political action based upon a religious motivation.
    · All textbooks in America must be approved by Islamic councils that are controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood. This is in accordance with Sharia law.
    · American employers and schools are met with demands for time and space to do Islamic prayer. These demands are based on Sharia law.
    · The American banking system is becoming Islamicized with Sharia financing. Our banking system indulges in Sharia financial law and does not know the rest of Sharia law.
    · Universities are asked to close swimming pools and other athletic facilities to be used for Muslim women.
    · Hospitals are being sued for not having Sharia compliant treatment.
    · No course at the college level uses critical thinking in the history and doctrine of Islam. Under Sharia no aspect of Islam may be criticized.
    · Muslim charities give money to jihadists, as per Sharia law.
    · Muslim foot-baths are being installed in airport facilities, using tax money. This is in accordance with Sharia law.
    · American prisons are a stronghold of proselytizing for Islam.
    · Workplaces are being made Islamic worship sites through special rooms and time off to pray. This is in accordance to Sharia law.
    · Islamic refugees bring all of their wives for welfare and medical treatment to America. Authorities will not act even when presented with evidence. Polygamy is pure Sharia.
    · We are fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to implement constitutions that have the supremacy of Sharia law as their first article.

Why Do We Need to Know Sharia?

ISLAMIC SCHOLARS CLAIM: Islamic law is perfect, universal and eternal. The laws of the United States are temporary, limited and will pass. It is the duty of every Muslim to obey the laws of Allah, the Sharia.

SHARIA: Sharia is based on the principles found in the Koran and other Islamic religious/political texts. There are no common principles between American law and Sharia.

Under Sharia law:

    · There is no freedom of religion
    · There is no freedom of speech
    · There is no freedom of thought
    · There is no freedom of artistic expression
    · There is no freedom of the press
    · There is no equality of peoples-a non-Muslim, a Kafir, is never equal to a Muslim
    · There are no equal rights for women
    · Women can be beaten
    · A non-Muslim cannot bear arms
    · There is no equal protection under Sharia for different classes of people. Justice is dualistic, with one set of laws for Muslim males and different laws for women and non-Muslims.
    · Our Constitution is a man-made document of ignorance, jahiliyah, that must submit to Sharia
    · There is no democracy, since that means that a non-Muslim is equal to a Muslim
    · Non-Muslims are dhimmis, third-class citizens
    · There is no Golden Rule
    · There is no critical thought
    · All governments must be ruled by Sharia law

Unlike common law, Sharia is not interpretive, nor can it be changed

THE SOLUTION
This book uses a fact-based approach to knowledge that uses analytic or critical thought. When you finish reading, you will know what Sharia law is. More importantly you will know why Sharia is what it is. You will understand how Sharia “works” and why it cannot change. For the first time, you will understand Islam. It will all make sense.

The Three Views of Islam

There are three points of view in dealing with Islam. The point of view depends upon how you feel about Mohammed. If you believe Mohammed is the prophet of Allah, then you are a believer. If you don’t, you are a nonbeliever. The third viewpoint is that of an apologist for Islam. Apologists do not believe that Mohammed was a prophet, but they try to be tolerant without any actual knowledge of Islam.

Here is an example of the three points of view.

In Medina, Mohammed sat all day long beside his 12-year-old wife while they watched as the heads of 800 Jews were removed by sword. Their heads were cut off because they had said that Mohammed was not the prophet of Allah. Muslims view these deaths as necessary because denying Mohammed’s prophet-hood was an offense against Islam and beheading is the accepted method of punishment, sanctioned by Allah.

Nonbelievers look at this event as proof of the jihadic violence of Islam and as an evil act.

Apologists say that this was a historic event, that all cultures have violence in their past, and no judgment should be passed. They have never actually read any of Islam’s foundational texts, but still speak authoritatively about Islam.

According to the different points of view, killing the 800 Jews was:

    · A tragedy
    · A perfect sacred act
    · Another historical event. We have done worse.

There is no “right” view of Islam, since the views cannot be reconciled.

This book is written from the nonbeliever point of view. Everything in this book views Islam from how it affects non-Muslims. This also means that the religion is of little importance. A Muslim cares about the religion of Islam, but all nonbelievers are affected by Islam’s political views.

This book discusses Islam as a political system. There is no need to talk about Muslims or religion. Muslims are people and vary from one to another. Religion is what one does to go to Paradise and avoid Hell. It is not useful nor necessary to discuss Islam as a religion. But we have to talk about Islam in the political realm, because it is a powerful political system.

    Do you have any evidence to support these statements about sharia law in Europe?

    I live in Britain and can tell you that this is all a load of rubbish.

  2. Kris says:

    The first link: one busdriver apparently stopping his bus to prey (and from the sounds of it getting into trouble from his bosses) really isn’t “Traffic cannot move in London streets as Muslims commandeer the streets to pray-a political result based on Sharia law.”

    The second link: All big cities have areas that are dominated by certain racial and cultural groups where people from other groups might feel uncomfortable going. It’s not a good thing, but it has nothing to do with Sharia law, it’s just about people’s tribe mentality and wanting to surround themselves with people who think the same way as them.

    I don’t know much about the Sharia courts in Britain, though I would never trust the reliability of any article written by the Daily Mail. They are well known to make stuff up and hugely exagerate to back up their racist, right wing agenda.

    Most of the statements in the article are scare-mongering and distortion of facts to make it sound far more dramatic than it actually is. Very much like the daily mail in fact.

    • Bo Perrin says:

      Hi Kris. First, I did tell you to get in touch with Bill and gave you his website. The articles I gave to you were a few and you can google others. But you make some statements that you do not back up with evidence.

      1) I agree that all big cities do have areas dominated by certain racial groups. Often it is uncomfortable for some of a different ethic background to go into these areas and you are right that it is not a good thing. But then you make a claim you do and cannot support. You state that these no go zones have nothing to do with Shari’ ah. What is your evidence for this? In fact you contradict yourself when you argue it is simply a tribe mentality and they want others around who think the same. What is the source from which the Islamic tribe thinks? The Qur’ an, hadiths and Sunna. This IS Shari’ ah. Shari’ ah does not allow Muslims to fully integrate into a democratic nation because it is a clash of the sovereignty of man verses Allah.

      2) Second, I don’t know much about the integrity of the Daily Mail and you may be right that they make things up. Our news media can be accused of doing the same thing no matter their political stripe. What is interesting is that the only reason you claim the Daily Mail makes things up is because you are a liberal and they have a right wing agenda. So, according to your thinking process any one you believe that has a right wing agenda must be making things up. Is this really the heart of why you dismiss the article? If they are making this up then you have nothing to fear. If they are not making this up you (England and yourself) will not survive! If you decide to reject this as nonsense at least doing some foot work and check it out from all viewpoints. At the moment you are simply rejecting it because it is politically correct to do so.

      3) You said the statements are scare-mongering – Where’s your proof?
      4) You said the statements are a distortion of the facts – Where’ s your proof?
      5) You said The statements are far more dramatic that it actually is – Where’s your proof?

      Merely because you make a claim does not mean the claim is valid. Provide proper authentication for your accusations (used here in a good sense). Kris, what do you know about Shari’ ah? Have you read any Muslim publications about the guts of Shari’ ah? You need to get the umdat al-Salik or the Reliance of the Traveller and Tools of the Worshipper. This is the classic work on figh. It lays out the guts of Shari’ ah and then you need to ask yourself, do you really want to live under this jurisprudence?

      Thanks

    “Merely because you make a claim does not mean the claim is valid. Provide proper authentication for your accusations (used here in a good sense).”

    I could say exactly the same thing about this piece of text. I’m not going to waste my time arguing anymore because it’s obvious from the lack of comments that this isn’t a particually widely read blog anyway and frankly I can’t be bothered.

    I will say about areas being predominantly muslim though, in bristol where I live there areas that are predominantly afro carribean, areas that are predominantly pakistani, areas that are predominantly polish,a reas that are predominantly white british, etc etc. This is how I know it has nothing to do with shaira law.

    • Bo Perrin says:

      Actually, you can’t say the same thing about the text. You have been given some evidence from British newspapers. You dismiss them because they are “right-wing.” You don’t dismiss them due to any supportable facts but your own preconceived ideas. I have given you the author of the piece and his website. Did you get in touch with him? I gave you the umdat al-Salik as a Muslim resource. Did you purchase it? Are you going to read it? I guess my next question is, do you care?

      Interesting. In order not to provide the evidence I ask for from you (as you did from me) you instead just belittle the website. That’s fine. It is a new website and others have found it very useful. It is the only website of its kind because the purpose is to investigate every writing and statement made by Hizb ut-Taharir. But it is an interesting way to keep from providing real evidence to support your accusations. It simply shows you are not interested in the truth about your own country and its future.

      Your analogies do not prove your point. It seems to me that the fact is that you have not checked out the Islamic communities and you are simply hoping that the analogies you provide do prove your point. In addition, it does not seem to me that you really what to.

      I am sorry you can’t be bothered. I find it interesting that you could be bothered until I answered your accusations, provided some evidence and then ask you to prove yours. Kris, your attitude is the reason why Europe is awashed in Islamization and it is the reason why Muslims are making such inroads into mine. The difference between us is that I am willing to look at the evidence and follow it where it may. I hope someday you will overcome your liberalism and also do the same.

      Thanks
