Sharia…What is it?
By: Rebecca Figone
Freedom of the exercise of religion is very important, but when that freedom seeks to invoke a new government based solely upon itself with no reverence for current law, there begins the emerging of a catastrophic problem.
Please do the legwork necessary to be an informed, awake populace. Though it may not seem relevant at this moment, be aware that it is highly relevant and imperative that one gain as much true knowledge about this as possible. This is a huge national problem, because this is going to affect the freedoms all of us hold dear, if it establishes here. People here in America need to have allegiance to this land and her laws. Our laws allow the practice and free exercise of religion, but our laws must not be sidestepped in the name of ‘religion.’ This is already occurring here, and we must stand against this ultimately for the greater good. Here is a link to a recent story concerning a relevant issue in this realm. From this link, much can be ascertained as to the way this is going to work for us here in America. Also, here is a link that will allow deeper insight into the current happenings, which can be used to follow the news on this subject.
In addition to this main link, here are 2 links to must see videos on this same subject. Never forget what is seen here, and also, be aware of what is going on in the nation of the We the People. Link 1 and Link 2.
This link is to an article from nearly a year ago by Michelle Malkin concerning a nation free of Sharia law, and Michelle also provided another link in the article to what is called Peace through Strength.
Sharia law is the antithesis to the US Constitution. It will not coexist with the US Constitution, but instead it will attempt to side step and usurp the power of the Constitution. It will win, if we stand back, apathetically and allow it to win. We don’t face it’s imminence today, but as Islam grows here, so will the desire to implement Sharia.
Here are several links for a great amount of information and clarification of what Sharia truly is:
Link 1, is about Islamic law.
Link 2, is about the 10 reasons that Sharia law is not good for any society.
Link 3, is about Islam, and its governing under Sharia law.
Link 4, is a link from the UK, but one that has relevant information regarding Sharia.
Link 5, is details about Sharia via Wikipedia.
Link 6, is a blog with a message of no Sharia in America.
Link 7, is a lesson plan for high school students that is from PBS, that is about Sharia.
Link 8, Where there is Sharia law governing the land, there is a subsequent absence of freedom.
Link 9, is about the different forms of FGM. (Female Genitalia Mutilation) This is something that is required to some extent by Sharia.
Link 10, is about the Ayatollah Khomeini’s religious teachings on marriage, divorce and relationships.
Link 11, is about the recent law change for Indonesia which requires all females to go through FGM by day 7 of life.
Taken from – Gurpreet Lenthdy: Tenets of Shariah Law
“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 (alms) 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 in one case, 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 apostasy 2) an adulterer 3) a highway robber. Making vigilante street justice and honor killing acceptable.
10 – A Muslim will not get the death penalty if he kills a non-Muslim.
11- Sharia never abolished slavery and 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 and other forms of cruel and unusual punishments even for crimes of sin such as adultery.
13 – Non-Muslims are not equal to Muslims and must comply to Sharia 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 commits adultery with a Muslim woman or 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. However, the opposite is not true for 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 a bathhouse attendant. Women in such 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-Muslims minority.
19 – Homosexuality is punishable by death.
20 – There is no age limit for marriage of girls under Sharia. The marriage contract can take place any time after birth and 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 she has no 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. Some schools of Sharia allow the face and some don’t.
33 – A Muslim man is forgiven if he kills his wife caught in the act of adultery. However, the opposite is not true for women since he “could be married to the woman he was caught with.”
Why does it matter so much to those here in United States of America? It matters to all Americans because Sharia is the antithesis to the United States Constitution. Many will read this and think, oh that “can’t happen here.” And for those of this mind-set, here is the link for the doubter.
