“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” – Matthew 6:25-27

Love those verses!
Just one clarifying point since some think (such as @darthtimon) that the fact that Islam rejects one side of democracy which is human sovereignty therefore the only thing that remains in it is “theocracy”: Islam obligates the right of the people to choose their leader, as the Caliph Umar said as recorded in Sahih al-Bukhari:
Whoever gives the pledge of allegiance to anybody among you without consulting the other Muslims, neither that person, nor the person to whom the pledge of allegiance was given, are to be supported.
من بايع رجلا من غير مشورة من المسلمين فلا يتابع هو ولا الذي تابعه

Sovereignty belongs to god in Islam with one important, unspoken rule- as interpreted by men.
Sharia is mans interpretation. Even then it is not agreed upon. Ergo, Muslims don’t in actuality believe in the sovereignty of god
Paulus, Islamic Law is simply a combination of the divine law in other words the Sharia(found in the Quran and Sunnah) in addition to the “Usul al Fiqh” which constitute the Qiyas(analogical reasoning) and Ijma(ratification or Consensus)…the last two are needed to put forth laws that aren’t found in the Quran and the Sunnah…
So you are mistaking Sharia with Fiqh…
You cannot stop being a perfect troll, can you?
