    hahahah you don't know anything, a large chunk of western Russia lies in Europe :facepalm:

    Clearly you need to go and get yourself educated, Russia is both in Europe and Asia.

    How is it personal attacks, as your being biased, clearly as shown as before, your saying Muslims can't help non-Muslims if their oppressed or poor, just put that there based on how you see it, rather than looking at the faith. When charity in Islam is allowed to be given to all people, than how would helpings others be restricted based on faith.

    would be pretty equal, you'll be under a different law technically, if you commit a crime,you get punished accordingly to your laws.

    How would I know, if he hasn't committed sodomy, he'll be fine.

    What has the west got to do with anything................lets see, a large group of these Muslim majority countries are run by what, Monarchies, which are not allowed under Islam, so why would they want to give up their power....it's all about greed as I stated before, keep up
    lol

    why is that funny..............look at the time of the Muslim's prophet, Christians in Medina who committed crimes were punished according to their laws, Jews likewise. Even though the law of the land was Islamic law, they would only get involved under that if a Muslim was involved.

    How is it a "law of the land" if it only applies to muslims?

    Contradict much?

    its funny that you think "you would be equal" and "you would be under different laws" aren't contradictions of each other.
    I am aware that this is how Mohammed ran Medina and I can agree that relative to other places at the time it was a good move towards freedom of religion but it still is efficiently not equality to hold one person to one set of laws and a second person to another.

    I don't care about circumstances under which it extends to people.

    I just want to know how it is the law of the land, if it only applies to muslims or when muslims are involved.

    Do you even understand what "law of the land" means?

    What would happen to a gay non-muslim having sex with a homosexual muslim.

    How would they be judged?

    I think there should be a choice for Muslims (only) in this country, meaning when Muslims commit a crime they are given the choice of whether or not they want to be dealt with by the Sharia law or this country's law?

    no because the law of the country should always override any religious rules.

    What's so special about muslims that they get a choice?

    Also, let's say that in democratic law, there is no penalty for homosexuality but under Sharia, the penalty is death.

    Why would a muslim (if given the choice as you say) choose Sharia in this case?

    The whole penal system would become a laughing stock if you gave muslims a choice haha...what a ridiculous suggestion :lol:

    WHY OH WHY did this thread have to become 5 pages long.

    We have people on here trying to act like a controversial politician here after receiving an A on one little end-of-term politics exam at AS level - when all they are in reality are internet trolls.

    'I am UK's future, controversial, cool politician, and Oh, Islam? Ha!'

    No one on here knows ANYTHING about Islam and Sharia law, they just watch the news and their childish wannabe politician is ignited. All hail the TSR politician!

    P.S And some muslim on this forum thinks 'it is my duty to educate the world about Islam' and so they write and write and write. But over the past few years, there's always a new breed of these immature, troll, wannabe politicians bringing up Islam again.

    There's no point.

    But that's what makes it fair for followers of each faith, why should they be judged based on another, it would cause even more inequality, and cause religious strife.

    The main law of the land would obviously under Islamic, the way things are run, etc....but different faith followers are given their right to an extent to be trialed by their faith.

    I wouldn't know, but if it can be proven, than its sodomy under Islamic law for the Muslim, not sure about the non-Muslim.

    So it brings us back to square one...Sharia for muslims and whatever people want for non-muslims. How exactly do you expect a country to run this way?

    How would the police work? Let's say that Sharia bans homosexuality. Well how would the police arrest someone for being homosexual? It's not like all non-muslims will have a giant stamp on their foreheads identifying them as non-muslims. How would the police know who is muslim and who isnt?

    Secondly, what would happen to apostates? If someone converts from Islam to another religion, will they a) be allowed to do this and b) if they are allowed, will they stopped getting judged under Sharia and get a choice to pick a different system since they aren't muslims anymore?
