    Sharia law is a concept that now is annoying a lot of people in the west and even some Muslims in the Islamic states, as people is thinking that what’s being enforced in Iran, KSA and Pakistan is the Shaira law, but actually these states are the most secular state in the world of Islam more than turkey and Tunisia, yes apparently they enforcing some of the Islamic laws but they apply it in a false way leading people to got a totally wrong ımage about the law of Islam.
    Actually there’s no state is applying the law of Islam, so Muslims are not living in Islamic state, they are living in a state with a majority of Muslims population, I’m not takfiry but this is the fact, there’s no state applying the Islamic law as quran and the correct hadith commanded us.
    The majority of people “Muslims and non Muslims” thought that the Shaira law is a set of punishments law against the thieve, adulteress,.. but the fact that these punishments laws representing too little part of the law of Islam which contains lots of other things like economy, foreign affairs, law of fighting, monetary system, treatment of minorities
    And too much other branches
    I’ll start by writing about the minorities rights in Islam not because what happened couple of days in Pakistan but because this is the second thing the prophet did in the Medina after his immigration from Mecca, and for sure everybody is welcome to correct me if I wrote a false thing about Islam.
    How Muslims should treat the minorities in the states of Majority Muslims population?
    Bombing their churches, killing them, steels their markets and business, I know some people are thinking that cuz of what they saw of some muslims actions in the news, but the fact it’s not like that at all.
    I’ll mention here what the prophet Mohamed had did when he came to Medina, his role as a mere religious leader ended; he was now the political leader of a state, governed by the precepts of Islam, which demanded that clear laws of governance be laid out to ensure harmony and stability in a society which once had been distraught by decades of war, one which must ensure the peaceful coexistence of Muslims, Jews, Christians and polytheists. Due to this, the Prophet laid down a ‘constitution’ which detailed the responsibilities of all parties which resided in Medina, their obligations towards each other, and certain restrictions which were placed on each. All parties were to obey what was mentioned therein, and any breach of its articles was regarded as an act of treachery.
    The first article of the constitution was that all the inhabitants of Medina, the Muslims as well as those who had entered the pact from the Jews, Christian, and idolaters, were “one nation to the exclusion of all others.” People of other faiths were protected from harm as much as the Muslims, as is stated in another article, “To the Jews who follow us belong help and equity. He shall not be harmed nor his enemies be aided, The lives of the practitioners of other religions in the Muslim society were also given protective status. The Prophet said: “Whoever kills a person who has a truce with the Muslims will never smell the fragrance of Paradise.” (Saheeh Muslim) Since the upper hand was with the Muslims, the Prophet strictly warned against any maltreatment of people of other faiths. He said: “Beware! Whoever is cruel and hard on a non-Muslim minority, or curtails their rights, or burdens them with more than they can bear, or takes anything from them against their free will; I (Prophet Muhammad) will complain against the person on the Day of Judgment.” (Abu Dawud)
    Prophet Muhammad received a delegation of sixty Christians from Najran in Medinah. They were received in the Prophet’s mosque wearing their crosses. The companions of prophet Muhammad tried to prevent them from praying in the mosque, but the prophet allowed them to pray in the mosque, and they did so facing East.He said, "The one who kill a mu'aahid “Non muslims who lived among Muslims majority”will not smell the smell of the Paradise although its smell can be smelled from a distance of forty years (i.e He will not enter the Paradise nor be close to it)." (Bukhari)
    It is reported that a funeral of a Jew passed before the Prophet (peace be upon him). As a sign of respect, the Prophet stood up. The Prophet was asked "Why did you stand up for a Jewish funeral?" The Prophet replied, "Is it not a human soul?" (Al-Bukhari)

    Also Islam grants for Christians and the Jews to judge among themselves by their laws, Allah said “But how is it that they come to you for judgement while they have the Torah, in which is the judgement of Allah ? Then they turn away, [even] after that; but those are not [in fact] believers” 5:43 and said “And let the People of the Gospel judge by what Allah has revealed therein. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the defiantly disobedient. 5:47


    In the era of the four righteous Caliphs, right after the death of our Noble Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him
    • During the reign of Ali Ibn Abi Taleb (4th ruler of Islamic state after the prophet), he lost his Shield in a battle and a Jew took it. After knowing that the Jew had it, the Prince of the Believers, as Islamic rulers were called, asked the Jew to give him the shield back. The Jew refused and insisted that this shield belonged to him and not Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, Ali took the case to court.
    As the Jew and Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, stood before of the judge called Shuraih. The judge said:”Please lay your case O Aba AlHassan (meaning The father of AlHasan, this way of figure of speech in Arabic is called Kunya, that is when you call a man by his son’s name and it is considered a sign of friendship and closeness)”. While he called the Jew with his name (without titles) Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, refused that the judge privileged him by calling him in a way to show friendship and did not do the same thing with the Jew.
    After each one finished stating his case, the judge decided that by the Islamic law and due to lack of proof that the shield belonged to Ali Ibn Abi Taleb, then the Jew owns it.
    The Jew could not believe that Justice would be applied in the Islamic state even against Ali, the Caliph who is at the same time the Prophet’s beloved and trusted cousin. Then the Jew said: “I declare that there is but one God and that Muhammad is His Prophet. O Prince of the believers the shield was yours, I followed your army while you were leaving “Seffeen” and it fell from your camel “ALAwrak””
    Ali said: “You became a Muslim so I give it to you”
    • Another famous story is the story of a Copt and Amr Ibn Al-'As, the ruler of Egypt. The ruler's son, proud of his parentage, hit the Copt's son with a whip. The Copt complained to Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, who then summoned Amr and his son to Madinah. Umar gave the whip to the Copt’s son and said, “Now whip this son of noble parents” After he had done so, Umar said, “Now whip the bald head of Amr,
    • because his son beat you on account of his father's authority.” The Copt repaid, “I have already whipped the person who whipped me.” Then 'Umar turned his face to Amr and uttered his everlasting words, “O Amr, since when do you treat as slaves those who were born as free men?

    Do you still think that Egypt, Pakistan ,Iran and KSA are Islamic states?
    If you are bombing Christian churches as they are disbelievers so you are ally with the devil as you are bringing them in to hell as they will die as Christian but if you wait before the church with books about the true Islam not yours, you may be the reason of saving a soul, but you made an alliance with the devil to kill them and distort the face of Islam and causing misguidance for others

    It is difficult to have a meaningful discussion on this topic within the confines of the Islam Dir.
