Cool Now the problem with the Sharia turns to the wealth of action vs. intentional activity.

...


So, all the laws of Sharia are based primarily on Qur'an and then on Sunnah, and after that, if there was no information in those two sources, judges were free to use their intelligence to make analogies. As in most legal systems, cases could then be referred to by later judges.
in my openion that's why there are some differes between rules isn islamic countries even if they based on shariah


...

What are the basic principles of Sharia?
These are to see the will of God done on earth as it is in Heaven (without any distinctions between religions)
The whole principle of God's will is to bring about compassion, kindness, generosity, justice, fair play, tolerance, and care in general, as opposed to tyranny, cruelty, selfishness, exploitation etc. All the rules of Sharia are towards those ends.

Forced marriage is not at all the same thing as arranged marriage. Muslims from many countries have a system of arranged marriages, in which the spouses may not have seen each other before marriage, but it always has to be with their free consent. The Prophet himself advised prospective spouses to at least 'look' at each other, until they could see what it was that made them wish to marry that person as opposed to any other. Women forced into marriage, or seeking divorce for general reasons, have the same sort of grounds in Sharia as in the west - cruelty, mental cruelty, adultery, abandonment, etc. They may even request a divorce for no specific reason whatever, so long as they agree to pay back the mahr (marriage payment) made to them by their husband if the husband does not wish to let them go but are obliged to


I wondered again over the importance of the concern here-in over good and proper love deeds. Being phyical for that is fine; but is the Sharia anything to do with the factual conjugal relation between the man and woman or deliberately avoiding ... is the Sharia anything to do with the major decisions for physical survival of that family in particular or deliberately avoiding... or is the Sharia trying to mend the irresponsible actions of man to woman with the generalization of tough to take for the opposition in government?

It seems that we cannot determine the equality of all human beings for the freedom to rule by the man and determine the meaning of Love by the woman for so. So therefore Islam gets mad for the majority of the families in the modern age which fail life. Hey, what is the dovorce rate amnogst muslims marraiges in America?
