"SHARIA IS "INVALID AND INEFFECTIVE": Huffington Post Writer Goes WAY OFF THE RESERVATION With Post About How Backward Sharia Is
The writer is Kamrul Ahmed. If all Muslims were like this man, we may not need a Donald Trump.
The language is a mess here, either because it is poorly translated, or because English simply is not the man's first language, but man, is this article a breath of fresh air, coming from the PuffHo.
In my opinion, there are some problems with the article. For instance, Mr. Ahmed seems to believe it was later-day "Imperialist" Muslims who brought about Forced Conversion. Truth is, Forced Conversion is enshrined in the Koran itself. The Koran itself says,
Quran (8:38-39) - “Say to those who have disbelieved, if they cease (from disbelief) their past will be forgiven... And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.” Translation from the Noble QuranQuran (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued." Suras 9 and 5 are the last major chapters that Muhammad narrated - hence abrogating what came before, including the oft-quoted verse 2:256 -"There is no compulsion in religion...".Quran (9:5) "But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for them..."Still, the article is a wonder. As in, I wonder how long until this man has a Fatwa on his neck.
I Screenshot the entire article and have posted it beneath the page break, because I am afraid the PuffHo will try to erase it from the memory hole on Monday morning.
From the HuffingtonPuffington Post:
The Sharia law forbids women from going outside of their houses, on the other hand the Jew and the Christians gave their women the freedom to conquer the universe a long time ago. Muslim women showed courage to reach the plane cockpit now a day following their footsteps. World has progressed so far and it is not looking back. In these circumstances Muslims should reevaluate what they are offering to the human civilization and the people of different beliefs.
What women right is provided by the sharia that Muslims going to deliver? Sharia forbidden women from loitering outside of their houses and going in front of men other than her own family, whereas the women in this world put their steps on the moon. There is no reason they are going to accept these Sharia rules.
There are no implications of these rules today. Instead can Muslims offer any solutions to the problems women face today?
Can Muslims question the democratic system or any other systems that only a small number of women are fortunate to have such freedom but could not ensure same freedom for majority of the women in our society? Is it possible for Islam to promise the freedom that no other can provide? Can Muslims today say that our prophet Muhammad (pbuh) once promised to the people of that society that a young woman would be able to travel alone from one city to another without any fear and that is what Islam stands for? Can Islam still deliver this kind of security and freedom to the women that the society today still not able to provide? Can Islam give what democracy, socialism and other systems failed to deliver?
These questions sound absolutely absurd because the Sharia law is not going to permit any of these things. So naturally the sharia becomes invalid and ineffective.
To win over democracy and socialism ideologies it is necessary to have a better alternative that can ensure liberty and security. Sharia failed to raise any of the solutions to the crisis people have neither have the intention.
Islam is restricted to narrow boundaries of rules, regulations and traditions. Centuries of slavery under occupied forces Muslims argued over beard and Islamic outfits among each other and giving fatwa against individuals. People are not going to accept these barricades voluntarily.
So when Sharia supporters realized this truth they break the fundamental principle Islam that is not to superimpose anything on a person. They changed their policy to force Islam on others.
The extremists then aligned with the imperialist to strengthen their muscle power to do militancy and decided to impose their authority violently. I admit they can continue doing this till eternity and wait for the prophecy of emergence of Imaam Mahdi and reincarnation of Jesus (Isa) to come true.
Is it possible to establish a better future with philosophy of notorious Hulagu khan and Timur?
These policies by the Muslims brought devastating consequences to the Muslim world, there are refugee crisis, women raped, forced prostitution, even men have to sell their body, all that happened to the Muslim Arab countries.
The extremist should accept that it is impossible for them to win over their so called enemy. They do not have any idea of their opponent’s military capabilities neither they have the intelligence and maturity to accept the reality. It will only take one split of a second to destroy Middle East for superpowers. It is not their generosity to take such decision, and absolutely not because they are worried about 1.6 billion Muslim population, that is only because of their interest purpose. It is because of their Arms market in war zones and sales of weapons and military technology and equipment and their control over the assets of Arab lands.
The philosophy of extremists is that maybe they don’t care whether they win or lose; all they can think of is that they are going to heaven. What really happens to them afterlife is not possible for anyone to know, so they blindly believe they are going to heaven. This is how terrorist and all other sects in Islam all going to heaven.
Well they can keep on believing that, nobody can change their mind but the fact is no body can expect to have heaven waiting for them when they make life miserable for everyone in the world. There is no shortcut to heaven; they could not possibly go near heaven. I am afraid this common sense to think rationally is missing from the Islamist long ago.
