Default Re: "Creeping Shariah"


Nice comments. But while I am definitely happy you linked to the piece by Dr. Jackson because a real understanding of what Shari'ah actually means and is is beneficial to the larger discussion, I'm not sure I would have wanted Mr. Wright and Mr. Ahmed trying to explain it. Mr. Ahmed is an anthropologist and not a religious scholar and while I differ with him in his approach to Islam, I thought his presentation here as an anthropologist was helpful.

Of course, what people who hate Islam mean when they use the word "Shari'ah" has very little relationship to what the word actually means to Muslims. Which is why someone like "Chainlink" can say that the most iconic aspect of Shari'ah is stoning...it is such only to those who hate Islam and whose knowledge of Islam, as little as it may be, comes only from or filtered through others who hate Islam.
