Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America’s goal – replacing our Constitution with sharia law


The enablers of radical Islam in government, academia and the media regularly dismiss warnings like ours. They have either never heard of, dont want to know about, or dont want you to know about, the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA).

When you read the eye-popping column below (highlights added), posted by our friend Andrew Bostom, youll be reminded why the willful blindness of the enablers of radical Islam is so dangerous.

We take little comfort in the ruling of an AMJA jurist (quoted below), who writes (referring to the Muslim community in America): The Islamic community does not possess the strength to engage in offensive jihad at this time.

Salah al-Sawy, mainstream AMJA jurist, expresses his patriotic views on US citizenship:

As for obtaining citizenships in light of circumstances of Muslims today who are residing outside the lands of Islam on the condition that they do not accept indefinitely the law and legislation of that country and being indefinite belonging to the nation of the non-Muslim country so that they become loyal to all their allies and an enemy to all their enemies and obtaining the citizenship is considered a required means in order to organize the affairs of Muslims who already live there while ensuring fulfilling vows and agreements between them and host countries, and exists due to urgent necessities and needs and this Muslim kept his loyalty to Allaah and His Messenger, then it would not be farfetched to say that it would be permissible.

My colleague Translating Jihad [6] has just rendered into English [7] an Arabic-language paper published by the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA [8]) in 2007, and presented at their 2008 careers conference in Houston [9]. As he observes, aptly, in his introduction to the posting, Credit goes to the Center for Security Policy [10] for discovering this paper and bringing it to me for translation.

The mission statement of the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America(AMJA) maintains the organization was, founded to provide guidance for Muslims living in North America AMJA is a religious organization that does not exploit religion to achieve any political ends, but instead provides practical solutions within the guidelines of Islam and the nations laws to the various challenges experienced by Muslim communities With regard to the Sharia, specifically, AMJAs stated purpose [11] is to clarify the rulings of the sharia which are relevant for those who live in America. AMJA is well-accepted [12] by the mainstream American Muslim community. The Islamic scholars affiliated with this group maintain influential positions in universities, Islamic centers, and mosques throughout the United States. Translating Jihad compiled a list of some of their prominent members, including the names of universities and other organizations with which theyre affiliated, accessed from AMJAs website [13]:

  • Mohammad Naeem AlSaei, University of Texas, American Open University (AOU) (Virginia);
  • Waleed Basyouni, North American Imam Federation (NAIF) (Arizona), Texas Dawah Convention, AlMaghrib Institute (Texas);
  • Hatem AlHaj, Sharia Academy of America (Florida), Albert Lea Medical Center (Minnesota), NAIF, Islamic Jurisprudence Council of Minnesota;
  • Waleed Al-Maneese, Dar-al-Farooq Islamic Center (Minnesota), University of Minnesota, AOU, NAIF;
  • Muwaffak Al Ghaylany, Islamic Center in Grand Blank City (Minnesota), Shari`a Academy in America (Florida), NAIF:
  • Main Al-Qudah, MAS Katy Center (Texas), AOU, Islamic American University (Minnesota), Al-Yarmook University (Iraq);
  • Salah Alsawy, Institute of Arabic and Islamic Sciences (Virginia), AOU, Sharia Academy (Florida), Al-Azhar University (Egypt), Umm Al Qura University (Saudi Arabia); and
  • Muhammad Adam Alsheikh, Al Rahmah Mosque (Maryland), Sudanese courts.
  • Alsheikh, Al Rahmah Mosque (Maryland), Sudanese courts.

Notwithstanding this ma instream acceptance, including uncritical endorsement [12] of its seventh annual American conference in Houston (October 15-18, 2010) to train American imams, AMJA has issued rulings which sanction the killing of apostates (here [14]), blasphemers (including non-Muslims guilty of this crime; here [15]), or adulterers (by stoning to death, here< strong> [16]), and condone [17] marital rape. Even more ominously, another Arabic-language fatwa from AMJAs Dr. Salah Al-Sawy leaves open the possibility for offensive jihad against America and the West, as soon as Muslims are strong enough to do so. When asked whether the Islamic missionary effort in the West [was] to the point where it could take advantage of offensive jihad, Al-Sawy ruled [18]:

The Islamic community does not poss ess the strength to engage in offensive jihad at this time. With our current capabilities, we are aspiring toward defensive jihad, and to improve our position with regards to jurisprudence at this stage. But there is a different discussion for each situation. Allah Almighty knows best.

It is also of grave concern that AMJA, as an American organization, offers only grudging and conditional support to the fundamental notions of acquiring citizenship in, and swearing allegiance to, the U.S. and our Sharia-antithetical governing legal system. Responding to the query: Is acquiring an American citizenship lawful or prohibited? AMJA issued fatwa #77223 [19]:

As for optionally obtaining citizenship of a non-Muslim country it is definitely prohibited without a doubt, moreover it could be a form of apostasy or main means leading to apostasy because willingly accepting the laws of disbelievers and obeying it without any valid excuse or enforcement, or ignorance is considered a nullifier to Tawheed and Islam, as long as the proof has been established upon this person and the matter and its consequences are as I clarified. As for obtaining citizenships in light of circumstances of Muslims today who are residing outside the lands of Islam on the condition that they do not accept indefinitely the law and legislation of that country and being indefinite belonging to the nation of the non-Muslim country so that they become loyal to all their allies and an enemy to all their enemies and obtaining the citizenship is considered a required means in order to organize the affairs of Muslims who already live there while ensuring fulfilling vows and agreements between them and host countries, and exists due to urgent necessities and needs and this Muslim kept his loyalty to Allaah and His Messenger, then it would not be farfetched to say that it would be permissible.

Now [7], Translating Jihad puts what one might wish to deem as these circumscribed, purely Islamic rulings, in a more disturbingand entirely unacceptable, seditious context. AMJAs own words make plain the organization’s long term commitment to superseding the US legal code with its antithesis, a Sharia-based system.

As Translating Jihad notes in his introductory summary [7] of the newly translated 2007 AMJA paper, it provides guidelines for American Muslims on what they can and cannot do vis–vis infidel legal systems. The paper makes clear that according to Islam, the only legitimate law is that which comes from Allah, and in fact authority to make laws rests with Allah alone. This renders every other legal systemincluding the American systemillegitimate.
