and social welfare. This is why it is important to distinguish between ‘fiqh’ [the legal system] and Sharia. Sharia is a Quran-based guidance on how Muslims should live a more Islamic life (Williams, 2008 p.38); Sharia does not come from the state at all. It is philosophical and its human interpretation is called ‘fiqh’. Sharia is considered immutable and infallible but fiqh is changeable.
The first, and some would argue the only necessary, reason for the supremacy of Islamic government is the fact that it Islamic law is the comprehensive, divine law of God. The fundamental difference between the laws of liberal democracy and that of Islamic government is that the laws of democracy are simply laws made by men. It is folly to believe that laws made by imperfect men are superior to the divine ordinances of God . Khomeini believed that the path to happiness began in the implementation and following of God’s divine law . The fact that Islam is comprehensive means that God as already provided for every aspect of human life including government and society.
It means following the exact actions of someone with higher authority or greater knowledge and that what Kant defined as immunity. The reliance on others to make decisions and not using own judgment or reason. The present Islamic world mainly attempts to either mimic the West or mimic the past and by past Khan meant the glorious and nebulous Islamic golden age which was from 8th till the 13th
He analyzes that we as a society have always been narcissists and we base our pride on the historic facts rather than the current situation that we have been living in, he also identifies the problem that in the minds of almost all the muslims islam is the answer to all the problems and it is the best and perfect way of life, where ias there is nothing apparently with this, this type of thinking gives a rise to hostile behavior of said muslims towards minorities or people who belong to a different school of thought as Mubarak talks about narcissism in muslim societies, it hasn’t been such a new concept as Christopher Lasch talked about the narcissism in american culture in his book “in the culture of narcissism” some 30 years ago. In the book Christopher Lasch describes that a form of pathological narcissism has spread all over america, and he derives his definition of narcissism from freud but uses in a broader sense. He uses the term pathological because he thinks that the narcissism in american culture is heightened and not
Pakistan in its current situation is a developing country, yet to acknowledge the realization of the fact that, a religious state is bound by the existence of its own rules and regulations. Hence, as laid down in the constitution, “No law shall be made in derogation of the injunctions of Islam”. When we talk about the practicality of laws in our country, one may find a practice, which is, if not completely then partly existing on a notion, opposed to the theoretical side, of which we are obliged to study in our pursuit for education. Freedom of religion is a fundamental right which is said to be given to all the citizens of Pakistan. Practically I don’t find that to be the case.
It is the Islam Creed which is simple the “confession of faith” (216). The creed states that “there is no god but God, and Muhammad is His Prophet” which Muslims put much emphasis on God being the sole creator (216). Muslim must say it correctly with much care and respect, “slow” and “aloud” (216). The Shahadah is actually used several times in a Muslim’s life depending on if the person is “overwhelm” in life (216). In a way, it can a help the follower
that the word ‘propagate’ has been used in Article 25 (1), for what the Article grants is not the right to convert another person to one’s own religion, but to transmit or spread one’s religion by an exposition of its tenets. It has to be remembered that Article 25 (1) guarantees "freedom of conscience" to every citizen, and not merely to the followers of one particular religion, and that, in turn, postulates that there is no fundamental right to convert another person to one’s own religion because if a person purposely undertakes the conversion of another person to his religion, as distinguished from his effort to transmit or spread the tenets of his religion, that would impinge on the "freedom of conscience" guaranteed to all the citizens of the country

Even though time has changed but the approach is still suitable until today. For example is the message of Islam conveyed by Prophet Muhammad SAW has been open to all humanity and never been limited to any particular people, nation, tribe, race or social class. The pure essence of the beliefs and teachings were revealed by God to the Prophet Muhammad. Islam is truly unique among the religions of the world because it is addressed to all of mankind. The scripture of Islam, called the Quran, Almighty God is never addressed all human being.
