Manmade Laws vs. Shariâ€˜ah: Ruling by Laws Other Than What Allah Revealed
This book discusses the knowledge that faith is composed of both belief and action, and that it may increase and decrease; sin does not necessarily constitute unbelief, but there are some sins which do put a person beyond the pale of Islam. Then, it examines the position of ruling by something other than that which Allah has revealed.
This book appears at a time when many other books and ideas are being propagated to justify the status quo of the Ummah (community), and the position of those who are not ruling by that which Allah has revealed, and to detract from the seriousness of the situation. This book presents a detailed discussion of the extreme views of the Murjiâ€˜ah and the KhawÃ¢rij, views which are clouding the Ummahâ€™s vision as they have for far too long. The view of the Murjiâ€˜ah is that faith is simply a matter of belief in the heart, with no link to action. The view of the KhawÃ¢rij is that any sin constitutes major kufr (unbelief), which puts a person beyond the pale of Islam. The author highlights these distorted views, then explains the middle way of Ahl as-Sunnah wal-JamÃ¢â€˜ah (the People of the Sunnah and the Community), based on the Qurâ€™an and the Sunnah. This is the knowledge that faith is composed of both belief and action, and that it may increase and decrease. Sin does not necessarily constitute major kufr, but there are some sins which in and of themselves do constitute major kufr and put a person beyond the pale of Islam, such as ruling by something other than that which Allah has revealed. Then the author discusses the rulings and conditions of such situations. Once this concept is clear in the minds of ordinary Muslims, then the Muslim Ummah will not accept anything from their governments and rulers except the Shariâ€˜ah to rule their lives, and they will realize that any other system or law is nothing more or less than deviation from Islam.
