To understand the nature of Islam, and its laws, one must know what they are. This is site that is teaching about Islam. I urge you to read this and to see just what the laws state, so you can understand what Sharia Laws include other than the basics. If you need more info about Islam, go to www.Jihadwatch.com to research the issues.
Here is another site, that is promoting Shariah Banking. This blog shows how incidious the nature of Shariah and Islam are when they invade the financial arena.
I am NOT promoting these blogs for any other reason other than for the layperson to understand how Shariah is being promoted in the financial world, and in the Islamic blogs.
