We should have a worldwide campaign to repeal the ten unjust Islamic laws below:

1. Death penalty for apostasy. https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2 ... blasphemy/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apostasy

2. Death penalty for blasphemy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blasphemy_law

3. Death penalty for homosexuality. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_in_Islam

4. Death penalty for adultery. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rajm

5. Son gets twice as much inheritance as a daughter. https://quran.com/4/11

6. Two female witnesses are required to counter one male witness. https://quran.com/2/282

7. The victim of rape is punished as it is considered illegal sex. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/worl ... 22326.html

8. Males are allowed to have 4 wives but females are not allowed to have 4 husbands. https://quran.com/4/3

9. Husbands are allowed to punish disobedient wives by beating them. https://quran.com/4/34

10. Chopping off a limb for theft. https://quran.com/5/33-43

Repealing unjust Islamic laws

Post #2

Unfortunately, according to Islam, Islam was PERFECT at the time of Mohammed and given by Allah himself.
Something that is perfect cannot be changed to something that is less perfect.
There is no room in Islam for repealing of Sharia Law or that upheld by the Koran or Sunnah of Mohammed.
The Koran or the Sunnah cannot be seen as being a "mistake" an "Error" or "only for barbaric times".
It is for all time.
Modernists, liberals and Western Muslims are mistaken if they think they can bring Islam into the 21st C.
Surah 65:4 is supposed to be the direct words of Allah...and therefore he ordained that a child married before Puberty can be sexually active. Otherwise she would NOT need an iddah or waiting period to see if she becomes pregnant. IF ALLAH SAYS THAT CHILD MARRIAGE IS LAWFUL...there is no-one who can repeal it.

1- Our Law is something we agreed to and no one has the right to change it.

2- Start studying first when those rules are applied and how many times it was applied and the reason of applying it, at the life of our prophet.

3- ( 2. Death penalty for blasphemy. 5. Son gets twice as much inheritance as a daughter. 9. Husbands are allowed to punish disobedient wives by beating them. )

those claims are misleading and shows lack of knowledge

4- I will reply each one later on

Just because a book is claimed to be of divine origin it does not make it so. There are many religions and they all contradict each other and science. I care about truth and ethics. “Ethics, too, are nothing but reverence for life. This is what gives me the fundamental principle of morality, namely, that good consists in maintaining, promoting, and enhancing life, and that destroying, injuring, and limiting life are evil.” – Albert Schweitzer, “Civilization and Ethics”, 1949.
