If you are in an officer's position aboard a western owned and operated ship, or ashore in management or supervision with Muslims in your workforce you need to understand this all important principle of Sharia law:
IN SHARIA NECESSITY OVERRIDES OBLIGATION
" Islam is a political system with its own body of laws called Sharia. Sharia law is based on entirely different principles than our laws. Many of these laws concern the non-Muslim.
What does Sharia law mean for the citizens of this state? How will this affect us? What are the long-term effects of granting Muslims the right to be ruled by Sharia, instead of our laws? Each and every demand that Muslims make is based on the idea of implementing Sharia law in America. Should we allow any Sharia at all? Why? Why not?
How can any political or legal authority make decisions about Sharia law if they do not know what it is? Is this moral?The answers to all of these questions are found in this book."
OUR OBSERVATIONS AND OPINIONS:
It is a fundamental principle of Sharia law that the Muslim is not obligated to conform to any other law and is obligated to impose Sharia upon all non Muslims. However it is also a fundamental principle of the Sharia that necessity cancels obligation. An example would be a Muslim mariner in a lifeboat where there is nothing to eat but spam which of course contains pork prohibited by dietary Sharia law. There is no other option for survival the Muslim mariner must eat the pork or die. The necessity to stay alive cancels the obligation to avoid pork. Muslims are required to engage in formal prayer five times a day. Suppose you are the foreman on a long shoring gang and the 1 to 4% of your workforce comes to you and says "We are Muslims and you must stop work or allow us off of work to pray at the prescribed times." Rest assured it will be put to you in terms that forceful because you are an infidel and the Muslims are obligated by Sharia to impose Sharia on you and to humiliate you until you submit. Moreover in the Western nations the .083% to .05 of the population which are Muslim have subverted our non discrimination laws and freedom of speech to often seem to give them protection of law for outrageous demands. A knowledge of Sharia law gives you a weapon to push back with. You are still the boss, you control their employment and hence their ability to make a living. The labor laws of your nation are the only court enforceable laws that govern. Assert your power, demand that they conform under penalty of dismissal but remind them that Sharia law provides for relief of obligation due to necessity. They need to make a living and can not do so while trying to enforce the Sharia on non Muslim authority in control of their situation. The Sharia even provides for "make up prayers" for those who miss one or more of the five times daily requirement.
Always remember that Islam regards you as a non Muslim as a target for conversion or death, and every Muslim is under obligation to impose the Sharia at every opportunity even where they are a tiny minority and lack power, even where they are in a subordinate work relationship with non Muslims. But the insidiousness of the Sharia can be made to work towards peace and order in the work place. Once the Muslims have attempted to assert any part of Sharia that is non conforming to safety, productivity, and the corporate goals of the employer, a non negotiable "No" by the employer or his agent actually relieves the Muslim of his duty to impose the Sharia in the particular case. It also relieves the Muslim of his duty to observe the particular disruptive practice himself. A muslim properly instructed in the Sharia should feel no guilt in working through one or more of the prayer times or ritual washings ,etc. if it is an employment obligation to do so.
Unfortunately liberals have so emboldened Muslims with what can only be described as second amendment special privileges and the abuse of majority rights that you may find them particularly hostile and resistant. Figuratively, do what they do literally, shoot a hostage ie fire the most vocal and defiant among them in front of everyone and have security immediately remove that person from the premises. Will you get sued? Yes. Will they win? No. What is the bottom line, the cost benefit ratio? If you fail to do this your Muslim employees will eventually totally destroy your business. For the cost of one legal defense you assure long term labor peace. In addition by enforcing your rules firmly, firing the most vocal dissidents as you would any other obnoxious employee, and especially winning a law suit, Muslims will avoid applying for employment with your company eliminating any real probability of your being attacked by U.S. left leaning civil rights enforcement authorities for discrimination in hiring. Just never adopt a formal policy of not hiring Muslims, avoid mass firings, never fail to hire a Muslim if their resume is demonstrably superior to the competition, but once hired never give in to Sharia demands . You may give in to reasonable requests if they don't bring you extra expense or impose inefficiencies or disruptions, such as paid holiday substitutions. If your place of employment is closed and the Muslim employee is going to be paid for Christmas or July 4th ,even when they don't celebrate it you can't substitute without extra expense. But you could allow them the use of any paid sick leave or annual leave, or personal days off that everyone gets to observe the Islamic holy days.
Learn Sharia, abhor it's intrinsic evil, but learn it well enough to cite the provisions you need like necessity excusing obligation. Remember that every Muslim you hire is taught from childhood that they are obligated to thrust Sharia down your throat at every opportunity, to humiliate you and push you into compliance if not conversion. Assert your control and the Muslim employee is relieved of the obligation to be disruptive and can settle into real productivity in order to make a living.
