Ahmad, you wrote to Kris: "...unfortunately there's no muslim country that implements sharia...."

Have you asked yourself why? Are they really Muslim countries or are there no Muslim countries either? What use a law that Muslims themselves are unable or unwilling to implement. Has sharia ever been implemented and what was the result? Did the countries that implemented sharia become the greatest on this earth. And if a counrty that managed to implement Sharia disappeared from the planet it would mean Sharia was a failure.

You are trying to perform the same trick that other Muslims have tried here and elsewhere. Trying to have your cake and eat it too. Sharia is Allah's own law so it has to be perfect. But it has never been implemented or if implemented that society has disappeared forever. So you can never prove that it is not perfect. Therefore it is perfect!!
