:salam2: i dont know how to start. I just heard of news a 14 year old girl in bangladesh was whipped until she died because she was accused of having a relationship with a married man. Of course thats a bad sin but shouldnt the punishment be between her and Allah SWT ? its not only in this case but many others who punished people under the name of Islam. These sort of things really puts my faith into a depression. Should Sharia really be practiced in todays world ? Yes I do know the teachings are from the Quran but isnt it true some teachings in the Holy Book were only meant for the Arabs back then ? dont you think that If the Quran was revealed lets say in Asia , wouldnt the teachings like forms of punishments would be different ? I dont like to question. But when I hear things , scary things, happening under the name Of Allah SWT , The Holy Prophet, and Islam I have no choice but to question. I honestly dont know what to believe. Im sure If Allah SWT were to reveal the Quran in todays world , it would be very different. I believe that Allah revealed the Quran to fit with the Arab culture of the time. Do you guys believe that these people that are following the Shariah are really following the Shariah or they,re just abusing it ? Or that the Shariah shouldnt be practiced in todays world because some of the teachings were only meant for Arabs at the time ? please answer! Thank You PLease TTI dont edit or delete this thread.
