  1. Alhamdulilah, I just had a conversation about this sort of Sharia law nonsense on Friday night with a Muslim in Singapore. The Ustaz’s, who are Islamic lawyers, join together and think through, how they want to interpret the meaning of The Holy Qur’an. Muslim’s are already directed in The Holy Qur’an to follow..The Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah (The teachings of The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him (PBUH)). That’s It!

    The Holy Qur’an states not to follow any other word. But it must be clear, The Holy Qur’an covers events found in the Old Testament, New Testament and then completes the journey – (not exactly but) sort of the third book in a trilogy.

    The Holy Qur’an covers law, business dealings including contracts, sex, life, death, funerals, inheritance (including percentages), sex, marriage, your wife, children, education, permissible and prohibited foods, how to worship, hygiene, respect of others, defending one’s self, when to go to war, how to deal (peacefully) with non-believers, the Prophets Bismillah hir Rahman ir Rahim Sayyidinna Nabi Adam (PBUH), Isa (PBUH), Musa (PBUH), Ibrahim (PBUH), Sayyidina wa Nabiyyina Muhammad (PBUH) and many, many others.

    Of course other aspects of our lives are covered in The Holy Qur’an. Islam means “a way of life”. A Muslim means “one who submits peacefully to Islam”. This way of life Islam was passed on to the final prophet ,in the long line of prophets, The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) by the angel Gabriel. Islam is captured in The Holy Qur’an. The Holy Qur’an is Allah’s, Subhanahu wa ta’ala (SWT) will and direction to mankind. For all people.

    Note: I was born into Catholicism, was baptized, took communion, attended Catholic school 6 or 7 years of my childhood, attended church every Sunday with my grandmother and some times my parents, and studied and learned the bible in Catholic school for many of those years. After graduating Catholic school, a year later at 15, while in high school, I was seeking the “truth” about our existence as human beings and the grand scheme of things (Universe). At which point, I was constantly directed back to Islam. In addition, after graduating high school, I voluntarily studied Judaism (which I was indirectly being taught while in Catholic school), Buddhism, Sikhism, Hinduism and Islam. I internally found Islam. Now I was connected. Connected to life, the universe and the truth.

    Islam is very powerful. I believe I can attribute my entrepreneurial success from 16 years old on, to my connection with Islam. Soon after, I found transcendental meditation (TM) and by applying the two my health and life have been amazing. Of course there are some adverse incidents you have to over come. But that’s a part of everyone’s life…Ying/Yang, hot/cold, right/wrong etc. Within the past 8 years I really consistently adopted my lifestyle to Islam. It’s a peaceful and powerful way of life, I encourage all people to experience. Ignore the idiots and nonsense and get to the core of Islam for you. Mashallah.
