    It is cool, God bless America and its people who treat all people in equality, justice for all. This is the true Islamic teaching — this is what I am talking about—Does Saudi Arabia and Iran both of them
    claimed the Islamic state— where Al Quran and Hadith are the book of constitution.—

    Most of Muslim around the world believe that Saudi Arabia, Iran, ISIS, Taliban are the true Islamic state or Syariah Islamic state, but actually they are fake Islamic state. Why?

    Saudi Arabia is an authoritarian regime that discriminates against women, doesn’t permit religious freedom, and prevents freedom of the press. Yet Saudi Arabia isn’t the Islamic state.

    The true Shariah state or Islamic state is where the government protect the right of minority, and freedom of religion, speech and expression. Justice for all people regardless his belief, gender and race.
    State and Church, and Mosque are separated. Government can not take a side of religion, must be neutral.

    This system of Secular-democratic government is compatible with Islamic teaching from Al Quran. As Allah explained in Al Quran as following;

    Allah commanded the existing authority has to protect the right of minority as following;
    QS 4:75. “What has happened to you that you do not fight in the way of Allah, and for the oppressed among men, women and children who say, “Our Lord, take us out from this town whose people are cruel, and make for us a supporter from Your own, and make for us a helper from Your own.”

    This Golden wisdom is found in Christianity and judaism.

    Proverb 31:8. Speak up for people who can not speak for themselves. Protect the rights of all who are helpless.speak for them and be a righteous judge.protect the right of the poor and needy.

    May Allah guide us all to the right path, ameen.

    • As you are enjoying the hospitality of USA it is correct for you to love your (new) homeland. Please permit the rest of us to look at the USA with a more careful view. Saudi Arabia has its faults. It is more a tribal / family affair than an ‘islamic’ state. I recall that once upon a time a Princess was executed for probably relations with an not-family-approved man. He was told that Islamic law does not require her death penalty. Her uncle said ‘I do not care about Islamic law, my tribal law says that she deserves death. Honest …
