The khutbah delivered today at my local IAR masjid, was an enlightening one: What is Shari'ah?
Most of us are aware that some few states have passed anti-Shari'ah laws, and more states are discussing about the ban. The khutbah actually jolted me into action. Up till this time, at 12:37am, I cannot say I know what exactly sharia'ah is. So, how would an ignorant Muslimah like me do da'wah to someone who has fears about shari'ah? I have taken it upon myself to educate myself first before I educate someone else.
And that is exactly the purpose of a khutbah: To learn, be informed, and go into action, be it through speech or through the power of the pen.
Here is what SoundVision says about the ban and what we can do as active role players in our society at large:http://www.soundvision.com/info/shariah/shariah101.asp
