Subverting America’s Legal System?
As Translating Jihad notes about the newly discovered document from AMJA, 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 system — including the American system — illegitimate.
But AMJA’s authoritative rulings require all Muslims to defer to the law of infidels only according to darura, the doctrine of necessity, for “it is required for a Muslim to be hostile to courts which rule by man-made law.” As Translating Jihad states in his assessment,
Throughout the paper it is made abundantly clear that Muslims should view the American and other non-Muslim legal systems as infidel systems, and that they are only to participate in them in specific circumstances in order to benefit Islam and Muslims generally. They are specifically instructed to feel hatred in their hearts toward such infidel legal systems, and to do everything within their power to make the Islamic Shari’a supreme, even if that means engaging in deception in certain cases.
Even if it means engaging in deception.
