What does sharia law say about non muslims
Sharia Law for Non-Muslims by Bill WarnerIslam is a political system with its own body of laws called Sharia. Sharia law is based on entirely different principles than our laws. Many of these laws concern the non-Muslim.
What does Sharia law mean for the citizens of this state? How will this affect us? What are the long-term effects of granting Muslims the right to be ruled by Sharia, instead of our laws? Each and every demand that Muslims make is based on the idea of implementing Sharia law in America. Should we allow any Sharia at all? Why? Why not?
How can any political or legal authority make decisions about Sharia law if they do not know what it is? Is this moral?
The answers to all of these questions are found in this book.
Shariah Law: The Five Things Every Non-Muslim (and Muslim) Should Know
Under sharia , the dhimmi communities were usually governed by their own laws in place of some of the laws applicable to the Muslim community. For example, the Jewish community in Medina was allowed to have its own Halakhic courts ,  and the Ottoman millet system allowed its various dhimmi communities to rule themselves under separate legal courts. These courts did not cover cases that involved religious groups outside of their own community, or capital offences. Dhimmi communities were also allowed to engage in certain practices that were usually forbidden for the Muslim community, such as the consumption of alcohol and pork. Historically, dhimmi status was originally applied to Jews , Christians , and Sabians. This status later also came to be applied to Zoroastrians , Hindus , Jains and Buddhists.
What does it mean for Muslims in the UK today? I think everyone interested in exploring how we live well with people different from us should know something about this, since this topic can be such an obstacle to good relations between Muslims and non—Muslims. Christians, like myself, should take a particular interest in this debate. As fiqh is the result of human interpretation, it is recognised as being fallible. Islamic law incorporates diversity and differences of opinion, within certain limits. But the stated punishments were coupled with very high standards of proof so were rarely carried out; they were primarily to act as a deterrent.
Traditional theory of Islamic jurisprudence recognizes four sources of sharia : the Quran, sunnah authentic hadith , qiyas analogical reasoning , [note 1] and ijma juridical consensus.
