Mainstream Islam distinguishes between fiqh,
which means 'understanding of
details' and refers to the inferences drawn by scholars, and sharia, which
refers to the principles that lie behind
Scholars hope that fiqh and sharia
are in harmony in any given
case, but they cannot be sure.
Sharia has certain
laws which are regarded as divinely ordained,
concrete and timeless for all relevant
situations (for example, the ban against drinking liquor as an intoxicant).
Sharia also has certain laws which are
extracted based on principles
established by Islamic lawyers and judges (Mujtahidun).
The sharia as
interpreted by Islamic lawmakers is
believed by Muslims to be merely a human approximation of the
true Sharia, which is understood as the
divine and eternal correct
In deriving Sharia
law, Islamic lawmakers are not, therefore,
actually creating divinely correct or
incorrect actions beyond question,
but rather attempting to interpret
Sharia in general is
considered divine, but a lawyer's or judge's extraction or
opinion on a given matter is not, though the
process and intention to refer to
Allah's law is divinely sanctioned.
An Islamic lawyer or judge's attempts to
rule according to Sharia, can be described
as 'ruling by Sharia', but this
ruling is not beyond question.
Sunni Muslims, the primary
sources of Islamic law are the Qur'an, the Hadith or directions of the
Islamic prophet Muhammad, the
unanimity of Muhammad's disciples on a
certain issue (ijma), and Qiyas (drawing
analogy from the
Qiyas - various
forms of reasoning, including by
analogy - are used by the
law scholars (Mujtahidun) to deal with
situations where the sources provided no
concrete rules. The consensus of the
community, public interest,
and others were also accepted as secondary sources where the first four primary

(usul al-fiqh) are the Qur'an, anecdotes of Muhammad's practices and those of
the 12 Imams, and the intellect
The practices called Sharia today, however, also have roots in
local customs (Al-urf). Islamic jurisprudence is called fiqh and is divided
into two parts: the study of the sources and
methodology (usul al-fiqh - roots of the law)
and the practical rules (furu' al-fiqh -
branches of the law).
The authority of
Sharia is drawn from two primary sources, as
well as two secondary sources. The first
major source is the specific guidance in the
Qur'an, and the second source is the Sunnah,
literally the 'Way', i.e. the way that Muhammad (the
prophet of Islam)
lived his life. (The compilation of all that Muhammad said,
did or approved of is called the Hadith.)
sources of authority is Qiyas, which is the
extension by analogy of
existing Sharia law to new situations.
Finally, Sharia law can be based on
ijma, or consensus. Justification for this final approach is drawn from the
Hadith where Muhammad states; "My nation cannot agree on an

Sharia is the

law, European civil law, Socialist law,
Hindu law and the law of Moses.
most striking difference between Sharia law and
English common law or European civil
law is that in both English common
law and European civil
law lawfully executed and valid contracts can
not be revised. Under Sharia law if one party to
a contract feels the contract is unjust he may ask the Sharia
law authority to change the terms, modify or
invalidate the contract on the grounds that fairness and justice under Sharia
law requires the equal enrichment of both
participants to the contractual obligation .
IslamSharia has a very high level of proof for the most serious
crimes and punishments. If
proof is not as specified then the crime must be considered a lesser crime. The
major myth is that judges in Islamic nations
have fixed punishments for
all crimes. The judge under Sharia is not bound by precedents,
rules, or prior decisions as in English
Hadd crimes, the most serious crimes in Sharia
law, are murder, apostasy,
making war upon Allah and His messengers, theft, adultery, defamation,
false accusation of adultery or fornication,
intoxicants. These are considered crimes against Allah.
Tazir crimes are acts which are punished because
the offender disobeys Allah's
law and word.
Tazir crimes are crimes against society.
A Qesas crime is one of retaliation. If you commit
a Qesas crime, the victim has a right to
seek retribution and retaliation.The
concept of retribution was found in the
first statutory "Code of Hammurabi"
and in the law of Moses in the form of "an eye
for an eye." Muslims add to that saying "but it is better to forgive."
Contemporary common law today still is
filled with the assumptions of retribution. The American justice
system has adopted a retribution model
which sets fixed punishments
for each crime. The American federal code
contains "mandatory minimum" sentences for drug
dealing. Many states have fixed punishment for
drug, violence and the use of particular

The assumption is that victims will be
compensated for their loss.
English common law, the
victim or family must sue the offender in a civil tort
action for damages. Qesas law combines the
process of criminal and civil hearings into one, just as the "civil
law" is applied in many nations on
Earth. Qesas crimes are compensated as
restitution under common law and civil
law. Qesas crimes require compensation for each

of Khomeini himself it could be argued that Khomeini's
motivation for issuing the fatwa is
irrelevant as Rushdie's apostasy was the formal ground for the imposition of
the death sentence.

agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which
requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church
buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a
personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the
knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has
enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against

due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over
the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more
power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general
through mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed
into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The
results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social
structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a
perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
