Islamic Law in none-Arabic and Muslim Countries

Sharia or sharia law, is the basic Islamic legal system derived from the religious precepts of Islam, particularly the Quran and the Hadith. Sharia deals with many topics, including crime, politics, and economics, as well as personal matters such as sexual intercourse, hygiene, diet, prayer, everyday etiquette and fasting. Adherence to sharia has served as one of the distinguishing characteristics of the Muslim faith historically. In its strictest and most historically coherent definition, sharia is considered in Islam as the infallible law of God (source).

Let’s see what the Muslims support when they talk about the Sharia or Islamic Law. I think it’s important to know, especially when you live in countries with a large number of Muslims, like the UK, France and Belgium.

Many westerns (and others too) read (and watch on TV)  about the barbaric practices like beheadings, stoning adulterers, floggings, amputating limbs and much more. For the westerns, that’s the ugly part of the Sharia or Islamic Law. ISIS is presenting the ugly part of the Sharia as well, and everyone knows about the beheadings and other barbaric practices, which they claim is executing the Islamic Law (which is true). Saudi Arabia, which fully implements the Sharia, is beheading their criminals as well, and they are not the only country! But you, dear reader from the west, must be aware that large part of your Muslim minority wants to implement the Sharia in your country! Look at the following statistics in this article.
