Memory Lane Monday: If It’s not Sharia---It’s Haram!

Sharia. “Man-made law go to hell.”When it comes to brain surgery and Sharia, it seems that 2016 hopeful Dr. Benjamin Carson is well-versed in both.

The first surgeon in the world to have ever successfully separated conjoined twins at the head, explained on Meet the Press yesterday that, “I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country. Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.”An unexpected and firm, back-boned answer from a candidate.

Sharia is defined in the Quran and Hadith as Allah’s law, an eternal, unchangeable view on all aspects of life that should be adhered to over man-made laws. Anything against Sharia is considered to be haram. So, apart from the obvious points, what else is haram?

Not using DJ Pauly D tanner? That’s haram, bro.Well, if you notice a few grays crop up, dyeing your hair or your beard is considered to be haram.

It is haram for men to wear gold and silk, since according to Islam Q A, “It is well known that gold is something with which people adorn and beautify themselves, but a man is not meant to do this, i.e., he is not a person who may be perfected by means of adding something, rather a man is perfect in and of himself, because of his manhood, so he has no need to adorn himself for someone else that he may like, unlike women. A woman needs to adorn herself so as to make herself attractive to her husband, thus creating a bond between her and her husband.”The haram police.

War on Women? Please…

Having sexual relations with your wife while she is menstruating is also considered haram, a point which goes into another aspect of Sharia where even if you hate your wife, you cannot divorce her while she is menstruating----only after when she is considered clean is that allowed.

Absolutely creepy.Surah Al Baqarah (2:222) :

“And they ask you about menstruation. Say: It is a discomfort; therefore keep aloof from the women during the menstrual discharge and do not go near them until they have become clean.”

Oh yeah, once you get the ball rolling you’d be surprised how much is haram.

    Using "Haram" is no laughing matter. To Islam the West is HARAM!
