Sharia For Dummies by Nonie Darwish

Posted by Nonie Darwish on August 27, 2010

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. and awaken to the fact that our reality is stolen from us and massive deception is put in its place.

    Think Obama is deferential to muslims? Look at his appointments to his Cabinet. See the national menorah in front of the White House during ‘holiday season’.

    Who covers-up 9/11 are the real traitors. It wasn’t muslims.

      Judaism isn’t taking over the world, Islam is.

      • It takes chutzpah to accuse others of that which you yourself are doing. Some would also consider this inversion of reality to be a manifestation of psychopathology. In either case, those who deceive and have caused huge harm to the human journey deserve to be put where they can do no more harm. FEMA camps are ready to receive tens of thousands. Let’s use the FEMA camps.

      • luchadora41 says:

        What I myself am doing, or the regime in the White House? What am I doing? I’m posting articles I find interesting and informative. You think I should be in a FEMA camp for that? Is that your implication? Big words may make you look intelligent, but in my opinion you didn’t say much.

      • Your assessment that Islam is taking over the world is deeply flawed–without basis in fact. In my opinion, it is a propagandistic lie which is designed to bring further attacks and harms on innocent muslims.

      • luchadora41 says:

        Without basis in fact? Hello? Europe, London, Norway, Great Britian, and Dearborn Michigan have been deeply affected by Islam. Anjem Choudary wants to turn Buckingham Palace into a mosque. Christian Copts are being killed in Egypt. Jews in France. CAIR is busy shutting America up about it. FBI documents have been scrubbed, as well as schoolbooks. Propaganda? The propaganda I see is people trying to blind us to the truth about Islam. Careful, your Taqiyya is showing and I’ve read the Quran. I don’t wish attacks on innocent Muslims. I wish to protect America from Sharia law.

  2. Everything you say about Islamic encroachment is exactly what zionist jews have already accomplished–and even the media spin which you regurgitate arises from the jewish-controlled mass media. Do you know what noahide law is and how it applies in the US? Do you know who control US Congress, Federal (not) Reserve (none) and who, predominantly, run the ABC agencies of the Federal government? It isn’t muslims. Who control Hollywood? It ain’t the Irish. CAIR won’t engage the 9/11 lies. Who control CAIR?
