A Muslim activist living in Toronto who serves as a public speaker, community organizer and marketing consultant, and who volunteers in his spare time with DawaNet, said Sharia in America was a real possibility – that all was needed was patience and a plot of gradual integration.
DawaNet is a group that operates out of Ontario to engage Muslims and fire them up to perform outreach across various communities. Its activities include such campaigns as Sharing Islam, the set-up of booths at shopping malls across the region; My Spirit, a Muslim youth outreach effort; and MuslimFest, a festival aimed at spreading the principles of Islam in a way that celebrates the arts and entertainment.
As Christine Williams of Jihad Watch reports, Taha Ghayyur, who serves as one of DawaNet’s volunteers, has now set eyes on America, to slowly implement Sharia.
In a post on CiJ News entitled “It is certainly possible to apply Shariah in the North American society,” author Jonathan Halevi writes:
“Taha Ghayyur, a Toronto Muslim activist and a board member of DawaNet, believes that the Islamic Law can be gradually implemented in North America. …
“The following are excerpts from Ghayyur’s article:
“[O]ne wonders if Shariah can be practically implemented in our contemporary North American context…
“The principles of Shariah are universal and are not bound by the limitations of time and culture.
“It is certainly possible to apply Shariah in the North American society only if three conditions are fulfilled:
“One, when an environment is developed, provisioned with preventative measures, that is conductive to a just and productive lifestyle, which is often not compatible with a consumer lifestyle.
“Two, if the Shariah laws are implemented gradually, accompanied by continuous public education and training on the importance of justice, freedom, and one’s purpose on this earth, the way it was revealed and practiced, as a strategy of pre-crime social reform, over a period of twenty three years at the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the first generation of Muslims.
“Three, if the punishments in the Shariah are given their due place, only to be used as a last resort, and not to be practiced in isolation from the other major objectives of the Shariah.”
