Isis bans football referees in Syria because they enforce ‘laws of Fifa not Sharia’


Isis has reportedly outlawed football referees in one of its Syrian strongholds because they implement Fifa rules “in violation of the commands of Allah”.

A system of “Qisas” for injured footballers was also brought in, referring to the retributive justice system enacted under Sharia law, where victims can claim compensation or exact revenge.

      Indeed, it’s fascinating to discover that in the Koran it’s Allah who names the animals in contrast to the Bible. Unlike the Bible, Allah hoards all legislative power. Lastly,Allah is profoundly indifferent to human beings. Sure he demand that they worship him but he also leads some astray.

      So I’m not surprised that any activity with autonomous rules is suppressed in Islam because such rules usurp Allah’s absolute legislative perogatives. Thus humans won’t worship him.
