    Who is familiar with Sharia Law and how it is practiced in the US?

    I stumbled upon this information and thought I would ask the question here. I never heard of it before. My intent is not to disrespect anyone because of their belief, but to learn how religious beliefs intersect with every day living in communities.

    I Googled the subject and found that there is a city in Michigan--Dearborn--that fully incorporates Sharia Law, the first to do so in the US.

    Do you have to be Muslim for Sharia Law to apply?

    How does this impact the separation of church and state in the US? Or does it?

    Maybe this topic should be in the religion section.

    Sharia law is more or less a literal and formed interpretation of the Mosaic Laws.
    Similar to the levels of protestant, agnostic to seven day Adventists.

    But as for the other link posted...

    City of Dearborn Responds to Satirical 'Sharia Law' Article
    City of Dearborn is "not amused by falsehood; sets record straight."
    October 30, 2013

    On Sunday, the National Report, a satirical website that posts stories with headlines such as "Woman Possessed by Demon after Signing Up for ObamaCare" and "CDC Report Reveals Existence of ‘Zombies,’" published an article claiming that Dearborn has become the first U.S. city to "fully implement Sharia Law."

    The story quickly made its way around the internet, garnering nearly 90,000 shares on Facebook, and it seems many people did not understand the joke.​

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_Africa
    Africa was the first continent, outside of Arabia that Islam spread into in the early 7th century. Almost one-third of the world's Muslim population resides in the continent. Muslims crossed current Djibouti, Somalia and Eritrea to seek refuge in present-day Ethiopia during the Hijarat.[1] Most Muslims in Africa are Sunni; the complexity of Islam in Africa is revealed in the various schools of thought, traditions, and voices in many African countries. African Islam is not static and is constantly being reshaped by prevalent social, economic, and political conditions. Generally Islam in Africa often adapted to African culturalcontexts and belief systems forming Africa's own orthodoxies.[citation needed]

    It was estimated in 2002 that Muslims constitute 45% of the population of Africa.[2] Islam has a large presence in North Africa, the Horn of Africa, the Swahili Coast, and much of West Africa, with minority but significant immigrant populations in South Africa.

    Some people have a weird sense of humor...I didn't find it amusing at all. Thanks for the correct information, though.

    Agreed for the most part, but you got to admit there are a whole lot of Muslims in Africa and have been for hundreds of years, whether by conquest or conversion through trading.
