Sharia Law and the United States


Is Shria Law worth Fighting to Keep out of United Sates

As defined in Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia “Sharia is a way or path It is the moral code and religious law of Islam. Sharia is derived from two primary sources of Islamic law: the precepts set forth in the Quran, and the example set by the Islamic prophet Muhammad in the Sunnah. Fiqh jurisprudence interprets and extends the application of sharia to questions not directly addressed in the primary sources by including secondary sources. These secondary sources usually include the consensus of the religious scholars embodied in ijma, and analogy from the Quran and Sunnah through qiyas. Shia jurists prefer to apply reasoning (‘aql) rather than analogy in order to address difficult questions. “

Muslims believe sharia is God’s law, but they differ as to what exactly it entails Different countries have different interpritations. Sharia deals with many topics addressed by secular law, including crime, politics and economics, as well as personal matters such as sexual intercourse, hygiene, diet, prayer, and fasting. The imam has varying responsibilities depending on the interpretation of sharia; while the term is commonly used to refer to the leader of communal prayers, the imam may also be a scholar, religious leader, or political leader. Attempts to impose shria have been, at times, controversial, violent, and even warfare.

As it is a “Religious” law It has no place in a constitutional republic that is tolerant of “ALL” religions and separates them from the state. One only has to read the Constitution of the United States to Understand there is no place for religious law such as Shariah or Christian Laws. Like Christian Law, Sharia According to Muslims, sharia law is founded on the words of Allah as revealed in the Quran, and traditions gathered from the life of the Prophet Muhammad. Muhammad was born ca. 570 CE in Mecca  a trading city in the Arabian desert. In addition to being a center of trade on the caravan routes, Mecca was a place of pilgrimage for Arabs of many beliefs. The focus of religion in Mecca was the Ka’aba, a stone building believed to have been built by Adam at the beginning of time, and rebuilt by the Prophet Abraham and his son Ishmael impose death by stoning for many violations, a barbaric means of punishment of the Bronze Age era of Human history. Although there are many different interpretations of sharia, and differing perspectives on each interpretation, there is consensus among Muslims that sharia is a reflection of God’s will for humankind. Sharia must therefore be, in its purest sense, perfect and unchanging.[ The evolution or refinement of sharia is an effort to more perfectly reflect God’s will.

Sharia can be divided into basically five areas:

1 Prayer or ritual worship

2 Contracts and transactions

3 Morals and manners

4 Beliefs

5 Punishments.

It is designed to cover evey aspect of life and to control how one is to live. A rather large conflict in a free society. Classical sharia attributes different legal rights and obligations to different religious groups; in practice, this consisted of curbs on the rights and freedoms of non-Muslims. As can be seen the to concepts of law sharia and Consitiutional can really never be mixed. The US has its laws and other countries and cultures have theirs. If a person chooses to live in the US they a governed by US law not another countries or culture. Any person is bound by the laws of that country and culture. The United States should be no different.
