( 2 ) : The Egyptian Constitution includes the sharia laws of Wahabism, not the Islamic sharia at all
Introduction:

Introduction: The Egyptian Constitution includes the sharia laws of Wahabism, not the Islamic sharia at all.  

 

Firstly: About the MB constitution

1- About the Egyptian Constitution formulated within the rule of the deposed MB president of Egypt, M. Morsi, we have written 16 articles that were later on grouped in a book form published online on our website here. The very first article is titled "The Constitution of Morsi Allows the Killing of All Egyptians!'', and the last one is titled "May the Curse of Allah Be Upon Morsi, his MB, and his Constitution! The Solution Is to Perform Jihad to Oust Morsi, along with his MB and Constitution!", and we have written in this last articles that we have written this series of articles while the MB Constitution of Egypt was being formulated within its committee, while the Egyptian revolutionaries would go on with their revolt against the terrorist MB.

2- Eventually, the 30th June 2013 Revolution managed to depose Morsi, and we hoped that the new Constitution of Egypt would be free from all the disgraceful flaws of the MB-imposed Constitution. Yet, we have been disappointed because the biggest flaw in the annulled Wahabi/Salafist/MB Constitution has been repeated in the new Constitution; Article No. 1 contains phrases about the principles of the Islamic sharia that include its comprehensive rules and its fundamental tenets of Fiqh (religious jurisprudence; i.e., theology) derived from acknowledged sources in the Sunnite doctrines as the main sources of legislation. Article No. 7 stipulates that freedom of opinion and expression is for all Egyptians, in speech and in writing as well as by all means permissible within the Egyptian Law, and the State guarantees the freedom of religion and the performance of religious rituals for the believers in the celestial creeds. Hence, this new Constitution of the 30th June current regime retains the worst flaw of the annulled MB Constitution; the sharia of  Wahabism would be applied within a civil cover. this crime against Egyptians is perpetuated in the current Constitution just to please the Salafists who remain loyal – as always – to the terrorist MB, as both are tools and pawns of Wahabism, a creed that goes contrary to Islam and the Islamic sharia in the Quran.

3- Accordingly, this danger that lies in this Constitution is to copy and paste vague contradictory phrases from the annulled MB Constitution about sharia. The term 'Sunnite doctrines' is undefined; it mixes the four main doctrines within the Sunnite creed and the sub-doctrines and thought trends branched from them, which differ a great deal based on the ancient scholars and their eras. There are millions of contradictory religious fatwas/edicts in such ancient schools of thoughts. Such vast differences and contradictions lead to disagreements about how to define the so-called 'rules and tenets' within 'acknowledged sources' of the Sunnite Fiqh. Even scholars, present and past, never agree about an inclusive list of 'acknowledged sources'; each ancient scholar had his own distinct and different views concerning almost everything. The eras of Fiqh innovation and creative thought lasted ONLY from the 2nd to the 4th centuries A.H. No one now among the Wahabi Sunnites now can be specializing in innovation and creative thought within the Sunnite legislation; all they do now is to copy phrases from M. Ibn Abdul-Wahab, Ibn Taymiyya, and Ibn Al-Qayyim. That is why we assert that the vague phrases in the Constitution are not definable; such phrases are put as decoration and as a tool to justify their applying falsehoods of the Wahabi/Ibn Hanbal legislation and sharia, to threaten the Egyptian society. It is absurd to combine two contradictory terms: 'principles of the Islamic sharia' and 'Sunnite doctrines', and we are proving this contradiction in this research.

4- Regardless of embellished decorative phrases about 'sharia' in the Constitution of Egypt, the practical real-life application is the main criterion. The application of Wahabi/Salafist sharia imposed on Islam has allowed the terror of organizations, like the MB and their likes, suffered by Egyptians recently: waves of assassinations, massacres, mass-killings, and vandalism. The unprecedented demonstrations, the biggest in number in human history, during the 30th June Revolution stand as proof of the failure of the terrorist MB rule, and the terrorist MB members try to punish all Egyptians by terrorizing and mass-killing, with the MB motto 'To Rule or to Kill You All!'. If the MB would have ruled for another three years, Egypt would have been another Taliban's Pakistan or Al-Bashir's Sudan, and Egyptians would have suffered like dwellers of the KSA under the oppressive rule of Al-Saud royal family! Such suffering and oppression are under the banner of applying the Wahabi sharia laws that have nothing to do with Islam: the Quran alone.

5- We refer the readers to our book about Constitution of Morsi, for further details, as we do not repeat them here in this research. It is a shame that most people concerned with the matter do not read our writings, and never read the fundamentalist books at all. We write here in brief and in a simple way the real principles of the Islamic sharia, hoping to arouse and pique the interest of readers.

Secondly: an overview of the principles of the Islamic sharia

1- In fact, the term 'principles of the Islamic sharia' is a modern one used in legislations and laws nowadays; it is never mentioned by Middle-Ages ancient scholars in their books and tomes of Fiqh. It might be nearer in meaning of the term 'purposes of legislation', and some claim that it is intermingling with another ancient term; i.e., 'Fiqh fundamentals'. We assert here that innovations and 'creative' thought of Middle-Ages ancient scholars fit their eras, not our modern times. Such scholars fabricated and invented hadiths (sayings attributed falsely to Prophet Muhammad) and interpreted Quranic verses as per their whims and false, erroneous notions, and hence, they formulated millions of contradictory different religious fiqh edicts. It is absurd to find in the writings of ancient scholars anything related to the principles of the Islamic sharia as a concept of our modern age. The current scholars and theologians of today never read sufficiently, and even if they read, they never rightly understand, lest they should die! We must return and resort to the quean alone, as the only source of Islam. We must discard these thousands of tomes, volumes, and books of fiqh and theology, with their complications, differences, and contradictions. Reading the Quran and contemplating its verses within a scientific methodology, we can deduce and discern easily the principles of the Islamic sharia.

2- The contradiction in faith tenets between the celestial religion of Islam, on one hand, and the faith tenets of the man-made, earthly, fabricated creeds of the Muhammadans, on the other hand, leads to the contradictions we discern between sharia of Islam in the Quran and the sharia laws of the creeds of the Muhammadans. Islam, the Quran alone, asserts that the testimony of Islam is (There is no God but Allah) and shows the tenets of faith, including the belief in the Last Day. In contrast, the man-made, earthly, fabricated creeds of the Muhammadans are filled with mortals who intercede as mediators on behalf of believers in the Last Day before God, as if God is not the Sole Owner of the Last Day. Deities and gods multiply in these creeds of the Muhammadans: starting from the deification and worship of Muhammad himself and end up with the deification and worship of imams, saints, and companions contemporary to Muhammad, within the Sunnite, Shiite, and Sufi creeds. In another contrast, God asserts within the Quran that the Quran itself is sufficient as the only discourse in which believers should believe within Islam, but the Muhammadans believe in many discourses in their creeds alongside with the Quran: countless hadiths fabricated, invented, and written by their sanctified imams, on which their sharia laws are based. There are thousands of 'holy' books of hadith, fiqh, Shiite notions, and Sunnite notions, and all of them replace and supplant the Quran for the Muhammadans! Hence, we understand now the contradiction between the real principles of the Islamic sharia in the Quran and the sharia laws of the Muhammadans, especially in the Wahabi Salafist Sunnite creed of today, adhered to by its agents: the Salafists and Mb members all over the world.

3- Briefly, the basic faith tenet of Islam, the testimony: There is no God but Allah, is the root of the very first principle of the Islamic sharia; equality among all human beings in duties and rights as well as responsibilities and judgment. This equality principle is the root of the second principle: the basic tenets of the Islamic shura (consultation), which means what we know now under the name direct democracy and political freedom within rule by the people, as well as prohibiting tyranny because it entails deification of mortals, which goes against the testimony of Islam. The belief in the Last Day as described in the Quran constitutes the third principle of the Islamic sharia; it means the absolute religious freedom for all individuals (in terms of faith, call, preaching, and rituals) in this worldly life, because every individual will be judged by God alone in the Hereafter about the religious choice, on which eternal life in Hell of Paradise is based. Hence, religious freedom must be applied so as not to use coercion and compulsion as a pretext before God to explain the lack of acceptable belief. This principle is related as well to the testimony of Islam; God alone has the right to judge human beings in their differences of faiths and creeds. Any mortal who does this defies God and commits the sin of self-deification, intentionally or not. The fourth principle of the Islamic sharia is justice; it is the purpose and goal of all celestial messages, and this applies to the last of them, the Quran. Islam is the religion of peace, and hence, the legislation of fighting in Islam aims to impose freedom and peace instead of oppression and coercion, which asserts the peaceful character of the Islamic sharia. Thus, peace is the fifth principle of the Islamic sharia. The sixth principle is the right to live; this is based on the fact that God, the Merciful, has sent Muhammad as a mercy to humankind. Islam prohibits killing and murder; innocent people who never commit murder have the right to live. Islam protects the right to live in peace and security. The seventh principle is stemmed from mercy as well; facilitation and removing of difficulties and complications within Islamic legislation.

4- The field of application of these seven principles of the Islamic sharia is NOT related to belief and faith within one's heart and mind; i.e., obeying and submitting to God. Rather, the application field is linked to behavior, demeanor, and dealings among people within a given society. The fifth principle of the Islamic sharia summarizes the meaning of faith in terms of peaceful behavior; within Islamic sharia in the Quran, the term 'Muslims' means peaceful ones in terms of demeanor with others, regardless of ones' creeds or religions; being them Sunnites, Shiites, Christian, Jewish, Baha'i, atheist, etc. it is important to be peaceful in dealings with others and be safe and secure to deal with by others. This is the meaning of faith in Islam. Hence, the Islamic sharia is concerned with rights of believers in God, i.e. with human rights within human societies. Whereas differences in faith, and in relation to one's views of divinity and God and how to worship, are God's concern alone to judge people in the Last Day: the Day of Judgment and Reckoning. Human beings have been, and will remain forever, different in views vis-à-vis religion, and as far as this worldly life is concerned, no mortal has the right to interfere in religious views and freedom of human beings.

5- Hence, the seven principles of the Islamic sharia are as follows: 1) equality, 2) direct democracy that include rule by people, political freedom, and prohibition of tyranny, 3) absolute religious freedom, 4) justice, 5) peace, 6) the right to live, and 7) facilitation and removing of difficulties and complications within Islamic legislation. It is clear that the seven principles of the Islamic sharia contradict the sharia laws of the Wahabi, Salafist, Ibn Hanbal, Sunnite creed which is known for its bigotry, fanaticism, and extremism, as well as its tyranny, oppression, confiscation of personal, political, and religious freedoms, and persecution of women and non-Sunnites.

6- What aggravates matters is that we know quite well the fact that the Sunnite sharia, with its four main doctrines, is more fanatical and extremist in comparison to Shiite (Twelver, Jafari) sharia, and that the Ibn Hanbal doctrine is the most extremist rigid doctrine among the Sunnite ones. The trend of thought of Ibn Taymiyya branched from the Ibn Hanbal doctrine is more violent and dangerous than the rest. in our modern age of globalization, human rights, and democracy, Wahabism is stemmed from Ibn Taymiyya rend of thought, and it exceeds its fundamentalism, rigorous rigidity, and violence! The problem lies in the fact that Wahabism spread all over the world via money gained from Gulf-oil profits!

7 Mentioning the above, we understand why Arabs and the Muhammadans could not be civilized by the culture of human rights and democracy; though this culture has reached all over Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and even East Europe countries undergo transition from communist tyranny to democracy with no problems, Arabs retain the status quo of tyranny because of the Wahabi culture. Even the so-called Arab Spring revolts have turned into the worst nightmare because of the Wahabi culture. This nightmare exists now in bloodshed prevalent in Syria and Iraq. This danger is threatening Egypt now.

8- After the 30th June 2013 Revolution in Egypt and the ouster of Morsi, the new Constitution of Egypt retains the major flaw of the MB Constitution by maintaining Wahabi culture as dominant in Egypt as if it were Islam; Islam and its Quranic sharia have nothing to do with Wahabism, and we prove this here in this research.

8- We write this research to explain the principles of Islamic sharia in the Quran and how to apply them, hoping to raise the awareness of those who formulate the Egyptian Constitution, to make it reflect the seven principles of Islamic sharia in the Quran that we list as follows: 1) equality, 2) direct democracy that include rule by people, political freedom, and prohibition of tyranny, 3) absolute religious freedom, 4) justice, 5) peace, 6) the right to live, and 7) facilitation and removing of difficulties and complications within Islamic legislation.

ABOUT THIS BOOK:
The commonly used term 'principles of the Islamic sharia' is vague, because it remains to be the center of hot political debates as well as political manipulation and deceit. This research presents to readers what we deem as the Quran-based real principles of the Islamic sharia and how to apply them based on a Quranist vision, in hope of realizing religious reform among the Muhammadans who think of themselves as 'Muslims'. May God come to the aid of all of us.
