ALTHOUGH A CHRISTIAN OR A JEW OR A BUDDHIST, ETC, [ALL CONSIDERED INFIDELS BY SHARIA LAW, BTW] MAY NOT TESTIFY AGAINST A MUSLIM IN, FOR EXAMPLE, EGYPT, OR SAUDI ARABIA OR IRAN, A MUSLIM MAY GIVE TESTIMONY AGAINST ANYONE.
AND IF FOUR MUSLIMS TESTIFY THAT YOU STOOD ATOP A UFO AND FLUNG LIGHTNING BOLTS AT MECCA, WELL,THEN THAT'S PRECISELY WHAT YOU DID, LIKE IT OR NOT.
FOUR WITNESSES CARRY THAT MUCH CLOUT.
ASK ANY INNOCENT MUSLIM WOMAN ACCUSED OF INFIDELITY BY FOUR MUSLIM MALE WITNESSES
THIS IS MERELY A CASUAL OBSERVATION BY THE TEA ROOM, NOTHING MORE.
IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS WE READ AND SHAKE OUR HEADS AND GO, "SHEESH! WHO KNEW?"
I KNEW IN 1967.
WE WERE REMINDED OF THAT FACT ALMOST DAILY.
I MUST ASK...WHAT IF THE PROVERBIAL SHOE WAS ON THE OTHER FOOT?
WHAT IF, SAY, AMERICA OR THE UK PASSED A LAW THAT SAID NO MUSLIM COULD TESTIFY AGAINST A NON-MUSLIM?
WHAT IF, NO MATTER WHAT BEFELL A MUSLIM AT THE HANDS OF A CHRISTIAN OR ATHEIST OR HINDI OR NAME IT, THAT MUSLIM COULD NEVER GO TO COURT AND ACCUSE WHOMEVER?
WHAT WOULD BE THE OUTCRY FROM ISLAM?
IT'S 'LITTLE THINGS' LIKE THIS THAT BEFUDDLE ME AND CAUSE ME TO SEARCH AND SEARCH FOR ANSWERS.
ISLAM IS NOT THE MAJOR RELIGION IN THE U.S. OR CANADA OR MEXICO OR RUSSIA OR CHINA OR JAPAN OR, WELL, YOU GET THE IDEA.
JUST BECAUSE IT IS NOT THE MAJOR RELIGION AND JUST BECAUSE NONE OF THOSE NATIONS HAVE SHARIA LAW, THAT HAS NOT PREVENTED MUSLIMS BEING ABLE TO GIVE TESTIMONY IN ALL THOSE NATIONS' COURTS.
SUCH A THING UNBALANCES THE SCALES OF JUSTICE WHEREVER IT IS ACCEPTED THAT (A) ALL WHO ARE NOT MUSLIM ARE INFIDELS IN NEED OF CONVERSION TO ISLAM, AND (B) INFIDELS CANNOT TESTIFY AGAINST MUSLIMS.
WELL, ACTUALLY, A MUSLIM CAN ALSO BE AN INFIDEL.
HERE'S HOW, ACCORDING TO AN ISLAMIC INSTRUCTIONAL WEBSITE:
3. Not agreeing that the atheists are disbelievers or doubting their disbelief or believing that their religion is correct.
This nullifier consists, in turn, of three parts:
Secondly, whosoever hesitates in the status of the infidels (i.e. he is not sure they are disbelievers or not).
Firstly, whosoever does not agree that the atheists are disbelievers, while Allaah announces in the Quran in many verses that they are indeed infidels.
"Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein." [Quran 98:6]
Thirdly, whosoever praises the faith of the infidels and believes that their faith is correct and that they are on the right path;
This type is even worse than the first two. There are two points that must be mentioned here:
1.By infidels here, we mean those about whose disbelief there is no doubt, like those who worship humans or any false gods other than Allaah and those who claim to be Muslims, but who are ruled by the majority of the Muslim scholars to be disbelievers, such as people who believe that a prophet was sent after Prophet Muhammad salllallaahu alayhi wa sallam, or deny the Day of Resurrection."
I THINK WE CAN SEE WHAT THEY MEAN, SO....HOW ELSE CAN A MUSLIM BE AN INFIDEL?
"... insulting Allaah The Almighty or His Messenger, denying indisputably established rulings of Islam which are known to every Muslim, prostrating to an idol, supplicating to the deceased and seeking their aid in times of distress, allying with non-Muslims and supporting them against Muslims, believing that this world has an infinite beginning, believing that Allaah The Almighty is incarnated in His creation, doubting or denying the resurrection and other issues that are mentioned by the scholars of Fiqh (jurisprudence) in the chapters on apostasy.
"Muslim scholars agreed that whoever leaves the prayer (the obligatory prayer) while rejecting of its obligation, that person becomes infidel (Kafir). But they disagreed about the person who acknowledged the prayer as obligatory, but he leaves it because of laziness"
THERE ARE MANY OTHER WAYS, BUT LET THAT SUFFICE.
ISIS HAS DECLARED THAT ALL WHO WILL NOT JOIN THEM IS APOSTATE AND ARE INFIDELS, DITTO FOR EACH SECT WHEN SPEAKING ILL OF ANOTHER SECT.
I MENTIONED THE INFIDEL THING JUST TO SHOW WHY, PERHAPS, THOSE WHO ARE "INFIDEL" MAY NOT TESTIFY AGAINST A MUSLIM.
BASICALLY THOUGH, THAT'S JUST THE RULING OF ISLAM.
THERE CANNOT BE EQUALITY OF LAW IN PURELY MUSLIM NATIONS BECAUSE INFIDELS ARE LIARS AND SCUM.
HOW ELSE CAN WE SEE IT?
NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT, I AM OFFENDED.
NO, I AM DEEPLY OFFENDED.
I AM REMINDED OF A LAW THAT WAS KEPT FOR CENTURIES BY THE ANIYUNWIYV, OR "CHEROKEE" IF YOU MUST, THE ONLY LAW THE NATION HAD, OR NEEDED.
IT WAS CALLED THE LAW OF BLOOD OR THE BLOOD LAW AND TERMED "BLOOD REVENGE" BY THE HORRIFIED "SETTLERS".
IT BASICALLY BOILED DOWN TO A LAW ABOUT THEFT...WHETHER ONE HUMAN BEING HAD ROBBED ANOTHER OF LIFE, OR STOLEN MATERIAL GOODS, OR ROBBED ANOTHER OF THE TRUTH (LIARS WERE NOT TOLERATED, ALSO FOR WHAT THE NATION SAW AS GOOD REASON), AND THE SAME PUNISHMENT WAS EXPECTED FOR ALL THIEVES.
IT WAS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE FAMILY OR THE CLAN OF THE OFFENDER TO ENACT JUSTICE, TO PUNISH THE THIEF, LEST ONE OF THEM WOULD HAVE TO TAKE THE PLACE OF ONE WHO WAS NOT PUNISHED OR WHO ESCAPED.
YOU CAN READ A BIT ABOUT IT <HERE>, AND ALSO <HERE>, BUT BE AWARE THAT THIS WAS NEVER A WRITTEN LAW AND ALSO THAT NO LIVING MEMBER OF THE "CHEROKEE" NATION TODAY EVER LIVED UNDER THAT ANCIENT LAW.
IT WAS ABOLISHED BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IN THE 1800s.
AND MAYBE YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT THERE ARE THINGS NO ANIYUNWIYV OR ANY OTHER INDIGENOUS NATION'S MEMBERS EVER TOLD TO AN ANTHROPOLOGIST OR HISTORIAN.
DON'T READ AND ACCEPT WHAT IS READ AS "ALL THE FACTS".
THERE ARE MANY PRIVATE THINGS THAT ARE NOT "SHARED" OUTSIDE THE NATIONS TO THIS DAY.
THIS IS LIKELY THE CASE IN ALL CULTURES.
NOT ALL IS "SHARED".
IF THIS LAW APPLIED TODAY AND EXTENDED TO ALL PEOPLE, I AM VERY CURIOUS AS TO HOW IT WOULD BE RECEIVED IN THE NATIONS OF ISLAM.
IF SHARIA LAW WERE THE LAW OF ALL THE LAND, ISIS AND OTHERS WHO TODAY AND YESTERDAY BURNED PEOPLE ALIVE OR BEHEADED THEM OR CRUCIFIED THEM AND IT WAS WITNESSED BY NON-MUSLIMS, AS IT WAS YESTERDAY AND TODAY, WHO WOULD TESTIFY TO THAT?
WHAT A HANDY-DANDY CONVENIENT LITTLE LAW, YES?
WELL, FOR ISLAM ANYWAY.
