Sharia Law

In attempting to learn about Sharia Law, I found the following on one page of a website.
Sharia Law definition:
Muslim or Islamic law, both civil and criminal justice as well as regulating individual conduct both personal and moral.
Take a look at that web page for yourself from the website of, which in itself I think you will find to be an interesting and useful resource.

You may find more about Sharia Law at:
Islam, Sharia law: A brief introduction from the Religious Tolerance website of Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance,
and at
Backgrounder, Islam: Governing Under Sharia (aka shariah, shari’a) from the Council on Foreign Relations.

I find learning new and different things to be so very interesting. And, Sharia Law is something about which I have previously had only very little factual information.

I love learning. Don’t you?

    There are times when learning is an illuminating experience. There are others when it’s something that scares the crap out of me. Government attempting to legislate morality is both.
