Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) September 28, 2015
Within the pages of Emma Paul Smithson’s new book, Why Islamic Law, Shari'a, Is Unappropriate In A Land Of Christian Traditions, ($12.99, paperback, 9781498442015; $6.99, e-book, 9781498442022) readers learn the difference between the directives of Jesus to a limited number of disciples to carry on peacefully, and Muhammad who gave directives BOTH to his successors in government and to faithful Muslim men to fight non-Muslims. Thus, divided military power can emerge, which makes government weak and tribes or groups strong. The author explains that Muslims have a great deal of charity for their own but it does not extend to others around the world as does Christian charity. The history of Muhammad shows a man inspired to preach one God, a unified God, and who was trying to improve conditions for his people, both men and women. Nevertheless, he was a warrior.
“I hope readers will have a realistic view of Islam, why its economic system is not as productive as that of the West and how rejection of the use of reason handicaps them in business, education, science research, and government,” states the author. “I hope readers will not assume that Muslims will act just as Christians do.”
Smithson’s post-college life was occupied in charitable endeavors which explains why 9 /11 shocked her deeply. Since the attack, she has endlessly studied this subject. While this book contains her original insights, it is the blended wisdom of many academic scholars and reporters. She does not recall another book on Islam and its law that combines nearly all aspects of human endeavor – a guide to Muslims, Christians, Jews and others.
