Welcome to Shariah.Ws. It is not possible to have an informed, factual and reasonable discussion regarding this topic without considering the role of the following crucial factors: a) geopolitical interests and interventions in Muslim lands b) institutions and think tanks erected and funded just for the purpose of serving those aims by shaping public opinion, c) a slick, hostile, antagonistic media machine, d) the rise of the ideology of the Kharijites centred around issues of rulership (due to those influenced by Marxism, Communism, Socialism such as Hassan al-Banna, Abu A'la Mawdudi, Sayyid Qutb, Taqi al-Din al-Nabahani) and their alleged desire to establish what they understand to be the "Shariah", e) the culmination of that extremist ideology in the form of al-Qaidah and ISIS and acts of terrorism intended primarily against "apostate" Muslims but exported to the West due to Western meddling in Muslim lands, f) Messianic end-time beliefs of Jews and Christians which play a role in distortions against Islam and hatemongering against Muslims, as well as numerous other factors.
Within an interplay of all of these factors, discussions rage about the "Islamic Shariah" but they are dominated unfortunately by two fringe groups: a) agitated, misguided, extremist, ignorant dumb fools (Kharijites) who are condemned by the very Islamic Shariah on whose behalf they claim to speak and b) spiteful, hateful, pseudo-scholastic Islamophobes (from amongst Secularists, Jews, Christians and others). Both groups feed off each other and create an environment where a reasonable and intelligent discussion cannot be had or is drowned. This prevents open-minded people from recognizing and appreciating the ethics, values and legal injunctions enjoined by the Islamic Shariah and its many admirable aspects which would help solve the social and economic ills plaguing many societies today.
Note: This website is NOT calling for "the implementation of Shariah law" in any non-Muslim land but is aimed at removing misconceptions regarding it by exposing the excesses, lies, deviance and oppression of two factions of people, a) the generality of the Kharijite extremists (in all their varying forms, violent and non-violent) and b) the resentful, spite-filled hatemongering Islamophobes.
