Well, well, well. Guess what we found out? The democrat who held up the Constitution doesn’t believe in it. Khizr Khan has been a prolific writer on Sharia Law and in his words the Quran and the Sunnah are superior over all other texts and interpretations:
“The Shari’ah-was completed during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammed, in the Quran and Sunnah. This brings up an important fact which is generally overlooked, that the invariable and basic rules of Islamic Law are only those prescribed in the Shari’ah (Quran and Sunnah), which are few and limited. All other juridical works which have been written during more than thirteen centuries are very rich and indispensable, but they must always be subordinated to the Shari’ah and open to reconsideration by all Muslims.”
From The Daily Caller:
In the journal article, Khan goes on to explain the importance of Islamic laws and interpretations to Muslim followers. He writes that: “The present form of the Quran is one and the same in every part of the Muslim world, and it has been so all through the centuries. This, Muslims believe, is due to the fact that the compilation and arrangement of chapters was completed-under divine instructions-by the Prophet himself.”
It is due to this that Khan writes, “to Muslims, the Quran being the very word of God, it is the absolute authority from which springs the very conception of legality and every legal obligation.”
“It has to be admitted, however, that the Quran, being basically a book of religious guidance, is not an easy reference for legal studies. It is more particularly an appeal to faith and the human soul rather than a classification of legal prescriptions. The major portion of the Quran is, as with every Holy Book, a code of divine exhortation and moral principals.”
Khan has also written “In Defense of OPEC”, “Legal Index of the Quran.” and is a co founder of Journal of Contemporary Issues in Muslim Law.
