What about "Islam within a democracy"?

Reader comment on item: A Democratic Islam?
in response to reader comment: Islam and democracy

Sometimes I think it would be wise to look at Islam within "democracy" before we try to imagine a "democratic Islam".

It's not like Islam has no rules for how to deal with "democracy".

"Dar al-Dawa" - "house of invitation"

"Dar al-Amn" - "house of safety"

But when their numbers are enough -

"Dar al-Harb" - "house of war", in order that they might achieve "Dar al-Islam" and "Dar as-Salam".

>No secularism means no democracy.

Very succinct and to the point.

I agree with you, dhimmi no more.
