We’ve talked about “shari’a law” on occasion on this program, but not everyone really knows what it means. Shari’a, which can be loosely translated from the Arabic as ‘legislation,’ is the moral code and religious law of Islam. It is derived from two sources: the religion’s holy book, the Quran, and by the actions taken by the prophet Muhammad and recorded during his lifetime. Shari’a deals with both secular concerns (economics, politics, crime) and religious issues (sexual relations, prayer, fasting, hygiene), and is interpreted by Islamic judges.

With immigration, shari’a law is starting to make inroads in Western countries, mainly in the area of family law within Muslim communities. In the United States, we live under the tenets of ‘Equal Protection Under the Law’ – but is such a thing possible if there is more than one set of laws that don’t necessarily agree with one another…not to mention that some of the underpinnings of shari’a law can easily be described as antiquated, or even barbaric by modern standards. Some jurisdictions are taking steps to prevent shari’a law from gaining a foothold in the U.S.; the state of Kansas last year passed a law preventing its use. We’ll learn more about that tonight from Republican Kansas state representative Peggy Mast.

    at least some cities got it right!

  2. Oklahoma tried to pass the same law, where Sharia Law would not be practiced in Oklahoma, but Cair to them to Federal Court to stop it. Cair is Council of American Islamic Relations. A Muslim group dedicated to installing Islam Sharia Law in this Country.

    • The Kansas law is quite different than the Oklahoma law which was a constitutional amendment specifically naming “sharia”. The Kansas law does not single out “sharia” and was statutory legislation. Kansas is the 4th state to pass “American Laws for American Courts”, and CAIR has been unsuccessful in bringing a lawsuit in any of them.
