Sharia for Dummies

Posted By Nonie Darwish/Frontpagemag

Imam Feisal Abdel Rauf claims that the U.S. constitution is Sharia compliant. Now let us examine below a few laws of Sharia to see how truthful Imam Rauf is:

1- Jihad, defined as “to war against non-Muslims to establish the religion,” is the duty of every Muslim and Muslim head of state (Caliph). Muslim Caliphs who refuse jihad are in violation of Sharia and unfit to rule.

2- A Caliph can hold office through seizure of power meaning through force.

3- A Caliph is exempt from being charged with serious crimes such as murder, adultery, robbery, theft, drinking and in some cases of rape.

4- A percentage of Zakat (charity money) must go towards jihad.

5- It is obligatory to obey the commands of the Caliph, even if he is unjust.

6- A caliph must be a Muslim, a non-slave and a male.

7- The Muslim public must remove the Caliph if he rejects Islam.

8- A Muslim who leaves Islam must be killed immediately.

9- A Muslim will be forgiven for murder of: 1) an apostate 2) an adulterer 3) a highway robber. Vigilante street justice and honor killing is acceptable.

10- A Muslim will not get the death penalty if he kills a non-Muslim, but will get it for killing a Muslim.

11- Sharia never abolished slavery, sexual slavery and highly regulates it. A master will not be punished for killing his slave.

12- Sharia dictates death by stoning, beheading, amputation of limbs, flogging even for crimes of sin such as adultery.

13- Non-Muslims are not equal to Muslims under the law. They must comply to Islamic law if they are to remain safe. They are forbidden to marry Muslim women, publicly display wine or pork, recite their scriptures or openly celebrate their religious holidays or funerals. They are forbidden from building new churches or building them higher than mosques. They may not enter a mosque without permission. A non-Muslim is no longer protected if he leads a Muslim away from Islam.

14- It is a crime for a non-Muslim to sell weapons to someone who will use them against Muslims. Non-Muslims cannot curse a Muslim, say anything derogatory about Allah, the Prophet, or Islam, or expose the weak points of Muslims. But Muslims can curse non-Muslims.

15- A non-Muslim cannot inherit from a Muslim.

16- Banks must be Sharia compliant and interest is not allowed.

17- No testimony in court is acceptable from people of low-level jobs, such as street sweepers or bathhouse attendants. Women in low level jobs such as professional funeral mourners cannot keep custody of their children in case of divorce.

18- A non-Muslim cannot rule — even over a non-Muslim minority.

19- Homosexuality is punishable by death.

20- There is no age limit for marriage of girls. The marriage contract can take place anytime after birth and can be consummated at age 8 or 9.

21- Rebelliousness on the part of the wife nullifies the husband’s obligation to support her, gives him permission to beat her and keep her from leaving the home.

22- Divorce is only in the hands of the husband and is as easy as saying: “I divorce you” and becomes effective even if the husband did not intend it.

23- There is no community property between husband and wife and the husband’s property does not automatically go to the wife after his death.

24- A woman inherits half what a man inherits.

25- A man has the right to have up to 4 wives and none of them have a right to divorce him — even if he is polygamous.

26- The dowry is given in exchange for the woman’s sexual organs.

27- A man is allowed to have sex with slave women and women captured in battle, and if the enslaved woman is married her marriage is annulled.

28- The testimony of a woman in court is half the value of a man.

29- A woman loses custody if she remarries.

30- To prove rape, a woman must have 4 male witnesses.

31- A rapist may only be required to pay the bride-money (dowry) without marrying the rape victim.

32- A Muslim woman must cover every inch of her body, which is considered “Awrah,” a sexual organ. Not all Sharia schools allow the face of a woman exposed.

33- A Muslim man is forgiven if he kills his wife at the time he caught her in the act of adultery. However, the opposite is not true for women, since the man “could be married to the woman he was caught with.”

34-It is obligatory for a Muslim to lie if the purpose is obligatory. That means that for the sake of abiding with Islam’s commandments, such as jihad, a Muslim is obliged to lie and should not have any feelings of guilt or shame associated with this kind of lying.

The above are clear-cut laws in Islam decided by great Imams after years of examination and interpretation of the Quran, Hadith and Mohammed’s life. Now let the learned Imam Rauf tell us: What part of the above is compliant with the U.S. Constitution?

  1. Sharia law will not prosper as it is building on injustice, untruth-
    fulness and deceit. It will have to give way for something far
    bigger anyway; One world government without religion & politics.

  2. Take in the bigger picture and you see a pattern that describes a parasitic creed. It’s not a coincidence that slavery is still endemic in islam. Most of those achievements peddled of “islamic culture” were in fact the fruits of the labours of the non-muslims in those societies. Look at Cordoba, falsely proposed as showcase of “peaceful” coexistence of muslim and non-muslim. My left foot! Periods of persecution interspresed with short intervals of a more enlightened behaviour. Christians and Jews were always second-rate non-citizens. But then, the obvious question, why not get rid of those hated non-believers altogether? Answer: because they were needed. They had the work ethics, the aptituted and the knowledge to do the work that their masters could not and would not do themselves. Too busy doing jihad somewhere else. Most of the science mentioned as achievements of islam was in fact done by non-arabs, Persians and what was left of the Roman-Greek legacy in the region.

    Islam is a parasitic creed. Mr Rauf is just realising that the host is itching and wants to rid itself of it. And he does not like it one bit.

    Good for us!

  3. @SM:
    “One world government without religion & politics.”
    That would be secularism then.

  4. If Islam is like the Amish then let’s send them all to small communities and not allow them to preach and hold dawa within our own communities.
    The Amish don’t do that!
    The Amish aren’t out to conquer the world and send everyone back to the 18th century.
    Islam wants to send North America back to the Middle Ages.
    Islam is a doctrine of conquest and submission to a pagan god, preserved and exploited for profit by a madman named Mohammad.
    It is represented by a black rock in Mecca that everyone under submission prays to five times daily.
    If anyone refuses to pray to this black rock they are killed or must pay a poll tax.
    There is no difference between Islamism and Islam just as there is no difference between Nazism and Nazi.

  5. Imam Feisal Abdel Rauf claims that the U.S. constitution is Sharia compliant.

    That is neither here not there. The real question is, is sharia compliant with the UN document on Human Rights? Is it compliant withe US constitution?

    I dont think it is. If it is not, then sharia should be made illegal. Anyone who supports sharia should be treated as an enemy of the Constitution, and be deported.

    There should never be equal rights or equal footing between the patriotic and the treasonous.
