What does sharia law say about non muslims
Sharia Law for Non-Muslims by Bill WarnerIslam is a political system with its own body of laws called Sharia. Sharia law is based on entirely different principles than our laws. Many of these laws concern the non-Muslim.
What does Sharia law mean for the citizens of this state? How will this affect us? What are the long-term effects of granting Muslims the right to be ruled by Sharia, instead of our laws? Each and every demand that Muslims make is based on the idea of implementing Sharia law in America. Should we allow any Sharia at all? Why? Why not?
How can any political or legal authority make decisions about Sharia law if they do not know what it is? Is this moral?
The answers to all of these questions are found in this book.

Shariah Law: The Five Things Every Non-Muslim (and Muslim) Should Know
The tragic incidents of September 11 have shocked the world. It is unthinkable that anyone could be so full of hate as to commit such heinous acts and kill so many innocent people. We people of Muslim origin are as much shaken as the rest of the world and yet we find ourselves looked upon with suspicion and distrust by our neighbours and fellow citizens. We want to cry out and tell the world that we are not terrorists, and that those who perpetrate such despicable acts are murderers and not part of us. This is all the work of a few misguided individuals at the fringes of society. The real Islam is sanctified from violence.
Under sharia , the dhimmi communities were usually governed by their own laws in place of some of the laws applicable to the Muslim community. For example, the Jewish community in Medina was allowed to have its own Halakhic courts ,  and the Ottoman millet system allowed its various dhimmi communities to rule themselves under separate legal courts. These courts did not cover cases that involved religious groups outside of their own community, or capital offences. Dhimmi communities were also allowed to engage in certain practices that were usually forbidden for the Muslim community, such as the consumption of alcohol and pork. Historically, dhimmi status was originally applied to Jews , Christians , and Sabians.
What does it mean for Muslims in the UK today? I think everyone interested in exploring how we live well with people different from us should know something about this, since this topic can be such an obstacle to good relations between Muslims and non—Muslims. Christians, like myself, should take a particular interest in this debate. As fiqh is the result of human interpretation, it is recognised as being fallible. Islamic law incorporates diversity and differences of opinion, within certain limits. But the stated punishments were coupled with very high standards of proof so were rarely carried out; they were primarily to act as a deterrent.

Sharia is more accurately understood as referring to wide-ranging moral and broad ethical principles drawn from the Quran and the practices and sayings hadith of Prophet Muhammad. These broad principles are interpreted by jurists to come up with specific legal rulings and moral prescriptions. It is the result of human intellectual activity and is therefore, by definition, fallible and changeable. I want to caution against reducing Sharia to just one or two legal principles and picking out certain punishments as being characteristic of Sharia.
Shariah is the law of the Qur'an and literally means "A path to life giving water. Therefore, Shariah is actually ingrained in Abrahamic tradition. Shariah is comprised of five main branches: adab behavior, morals and manners , ibadah ritual worship , i'tiqadat beliefs , mu'amalat transactions and contracts and 'uqubat punishments. These branches combine to create a society based on justice, pluralism and equity for every member of that society. Furthermore, Shariah forbids that it be imposed on any unwilling person.
