Sharia law

images copy 3

Sharia (the path) is a legal, political, theological, military system developed over 1000 years since Muhammad.  Strict Sharia is implemented in 35 countries and to a lesser extent in many other Muslim countries. Most Muslims only know of the five ‘pillars  of Islam’ namely the creed, fasting during Ramadan, the  pilgrimage (hadj), praying five times daily and giving to the poor. It is a complete way of life. An example of Sharia is Afghanistan but many today fear it and don’t want to live under it.

The organisers of this prayer bulletin believe God is working among muslims through Christian witness but also direct revelation, which contradicts ‘Sola Scriptura’  one of the basic tenets of the Reformation.

Pray for more muslims worldwide to be disillusioned with Islam and to be drawn to Christ in the Scriptures.
