Sharia for Peace
Below are a few excerpts from my next book:— These are the portents of Allah which we recite unto thee Muhammad with truth, and lo, thou art of the number of our messengers. (Quran 2: 252)— If Muslims wish to govern by the Law of Sharia, they should heed the Messenger of Allah, living in conformity with the true precepts of Islam in all its purity of peace, justice and equality.— The Prophet Muhammad’s Sharia if it is to be called Sharia based on the example of his life and the Quranic injunctions is not about rituals, punishment, jurisprudence, but about love, unity and forgiveness.— He envisioned and practiced Islam as the religion of peace and reconciliation.— Allah would make the burden light for you, for man was created weak. (Quran 4:28)— Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. The Beneficent, the Merciful. Owner of the Day of Judgment. Thee alone we worship, Thee alone we ask for help. Show us the straight path. The path of those whom Thou has favored. Not the path of those who earn Thine anger nor those who go astray. (Quran 1: 1-7)— And O Muhammad say: My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for Thou art best of all who show mercy. (Quran 23:118)— Had it not been for the grace of Allah and His mercy unto you, and that Allah is Clement, Merciful, ye had been undone. (Quran 24: 20)— Proofs have come unto you from your Lord, so whoso seeth, it is for his own good, and whoso is blind is blind to his own hurt. And I am not a keeper over you. (Quran 6: 105)— This is the path of thy Lord, a straight path. We have detailed Our revelations for a people who take heed. (Quran 6: 127)— And lo, thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful. (Quran 26: 9)— And lo, thy Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful. (Quran 26: 140)— And lo, thy Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful. (Quran 26: 175)— Announce O Muhammad unto my slaves that verily I am the Merciful, the Forgiving. (Quran 15: 49)— Know they not that Allah is He Who accepteth repentance from his bondmen and taketh the alms, and that Allah is He Who is the Merciful, the Relenting. (Quran 9: 104)— For them is the abode of peace with their Lord. He will be their Protecting Friend because of what they used to do. (Quran 6: 128)— Confound not truth with falsehood, not knowingly conceal the truth. (Quran 2: 42)— He hath revealed unto thee Muhammad the Scripture with truth, confirming that which was revealed before it, even as He revealed the Torah and the Gospel. (Quran 3: 3)— And of His signs is this: He created for you helpmates from yourself that ye might find rest in them, and He ordained between you love and mercy. Lo, herein indeed are portents for folk who reflect. (Quran 30:21)— And covet not the thing in which Allah hath made some of you excel others. Unto men a fortune from that which they have earned, and unto women a fortune from that which they have earned. Envy not one another, but ask Allah of His bounty. Lo, Allah is Knower of all things. (Quran 4:32)— I cast the garment of love over thee from Me. And this in order that thou mayest be reared under Mine Eye. Quran 20:39)— Create not disorder on earth. (Quran 1: 12)— Work not confusion in earth after the fair ordering thereof, and call on Him in fear and hope. Lo, the mercy of Allah is nigh unto good. (Quran 7:56)— The faithful slaves of the Beneficent are they who walk upon the earth modestly, and when the foolish ones address them, answer: Peace. (Quran 25:63)— And when it is said unto them: make not mischief in the earth, the say: We are peacemakers only. (Quran 2:11)— Wrong not mankind in their goods, and do not evil, making mischief in the earth. (Quran 26:183)— Yet whoso doeth evil or wrongeth his own soul, then seeketh pardon of Allah, will find Allah Forgiving, Merciful. (Quran 4:110)— Sanction is given to those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo, Allah loveth not aggressors. (Quran 2:190)— O ye who believe! Squander not your wealth among yourselves in vanity, except it be a trade by mutual consent and kill not one another. Lo, Allah is ever merciful to you. (Quran 4:29)— Whoso doeth that through aggression and injustice, We shall cast him into Fire, and that is ever easy for Allah. (Quran 4:30)— Fight in the way of Allah who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo, Allah loveth not aggressors. (Quran 2:190)— And when we made with you a covenant saying: shed not the blood of your people nor turn a party of your people out of your dwellings. Then you ratified our covenant and you were witnesses thereto. (Quran 2:84)— O mankind, call upon your Lord humbly and in secret. Lo, he loveth not aggressors. (Quran 7:55)— War is a deceptive error. Prophet Muhammad Al Bukhari LV1:157(3)— The energetic man is not one who uses force, but one who keeps control of himself in a moment of anger. Prophet Muhammad Al Bukhari LXV111:76(1)— The Prophet said, a Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs. Whoever brought his brother out of discomfort, Allah will bring him out of discomforts on the Day of Resurrection and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection. Al Bukhari [3:622-O.B]— The Prophet said, may I tell you of the people of paradise? Every weak and poor obscure person whom the people look down upon but if he takes an oath to do something, his oath is fulfilled by Allah. And may I inform you of the people of hellfire? They are all those violent, arrogant and stubborn people. Al Bukhari [6:440-O.B]— The Prophet said, the most hated persons with Allah are three, an evil-doer, a person who seeks the traditions of the Period of Ignorance and a person who seeks to shed somebody’s blood without any right. Al Bukhari [9:21-O.B]— The Prophet said, none of you should point out towards his Muslim brother with a weapon, for he does not know, Satan may tempt him to hit him and thus he would fall into a pit of fire. Al Bukhari [9:193-O.B]— The Prophet forbade robbery and mutilation of the bodies. Al Bukhari [3:654-O.B]— Do not become infidels after me by killing each other. Prophet Muhammad/ Al-Bukhari [1:22-OB]— There are three things of which God disapproves, cunning plans, waste of goods and excessive requests. And three are the enemies of my religion. The fundamentalists, the fundamentalists, the fundamentalists. Prophet Muhammad Al Bukhari XX1V:53(2)— Is Sharia to be the law of justice, equality, tolerance or compassion?— Or is it to be the law of misogyny, injustice, inequality, intolerance, suppression?— Muslims have to decide which law to implement.— Muslims in truth, not by name?
