There is constant pressure from Islam for Kafirs [non-Muslims] to submit to the Sharia. Most Kafirs think that if we accommodate their demands, then Muslims will be satisfied, and we can go back to our lives. Wrong answer. The pressure from Islam will never cease until there is 100% submission. Bukhari Book 58, Hadith 3: “…Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you until you worship Allah alone or pay the Jizya (the dhimmi tax)…” Translation: the pressure from Islam for Sharia will stop when all humanity converts to Islam or submits to the Sharia by being a dhimmi. Period.
Here are just a few recent demands for Sharia:
- There was a push in Sweden to publicly broadcast the Friday call to prayer.
- Muslim men disrupt Catholic services, demand nuns convert to Islam
- British cops refuse to stop Islamic prayer in a public park
Apologists for Islam say that freedom of religion means we must yield to all Islamic demands. Not true. In our law, there are limits to religious expression. For instance, the Mormons had to drop polygamy for Utah to be a state; there is separation of Church and State in the schools and workplace; child marriage is illegal, and so on. More importantly, if the demand affects a non-believer, it is not a religious demand, it is political.
How do we stop the incessant demands? First, we need to realize Islamic demands in Kafir ruled-countries are about wants, not necessity. If their desires are not met, there is no harm to their religion. Secondly, we need to know Allah and Mohammed have provided Muslims a trap door out of practicing Sharia law when the Kafir makes it difficult.
The Sharia principles of tayseer (ease) and darura (necessity, or obligation) explain that if it is impossible to practice the obligatory Sharia, their burden is lightened (eased). It is no fault of the Muslim and there is no offense to Allah. The “sin” is on the Kafir. So, by not submitting to Islamic demands, we are restricting political Islam, not religious Islam. Sadly, the professionally ignorant refuse to wake up and understand.
You can wake a man who is a sleep, but you can never wake a man pretending to sleep.
