About

There's nothing today so misrepresented and despised as much as Shariah Law. You will get a gentler response screaming SHARK! in mid summer at a crowded New England island resort than uttering the word Shariah.

About the Author

Hi, I am Amr Metwally, A third generation Muslim from Moroccan Jew heritage. Well, my forefathers really never converted to Islam. It seemed though that they didn't mind that their off springs picked-up the religion of the locals. What's so good about this is that I had no knowledge of Islam growing up. You see, most Middle Easterners attain their teachings of Islam from their parents. With the spread of Wahhabism  by the Saudi's in the 70's, the authentic teaching of Shariah Law and Islam as a whole was unfortunately tarnished.

What's even cooler is that I grew up in the U.S. So I had no association with any of the adverse activities we sadly see so much of in the Middle East now. When I first picked up the Quran and Hadith a few years ago, I studied them both in their most purest and authentic state. And let me tell you, as a person who wrote screenplays out in Hollywood, God is the greatest screenwriter and the Prophet Mohammed is the greatest director!

Ever since I graduated high school class of 2000, I have worked in various industries: from backbreaking, degrading minimum wage jobs to being on set with some of the most famous and richest celebrities in the world!  In the past well over dozen years, I have gained so much insight about people. Just sitting back and observing. As an aspiring screenwriter who diligently and faithfully studied his craft, I have learned the inner workings of people. The hero within, the loser outside.

The people we literally worship as idols, are not what we think. And those whom we look down upon, they're not what we think. For us to further proceed, we must first realize that the Quran is a manual for mankind and the Hadith (teachings) of the Prophet Mohammed are the instructions.

I would like to share true Islam with you now!

Some of the things you will soon learn is that:

  • Muslims don't worship Allah the moon God.
  • Jesus is a revered prophet in Islam.
  • Stoning the punishment for adultery is not found in the Quran.
  • That the terms Jihad and Islam do not at all mean Holy War and religion of peace.
See, most of you wouldn't have known the above unless you read the Quran and Hadith yourself or had someone like me to explain. 

The Project

Right now, mankind is in the greatest fitnah (tribulations) since the beginning of creation. The middle East is a lost cause. But America, has hope! Unfortunately, this country is on a irreversible and slippery slope toward tyranny, injustice, and oppression. If thou believeth not, you would not have read this far :)

Shariah Law for America uses the authentic word of God and the teachings and prophecies of Prophet Mohammad to explain what in the world literally is going on around us. At the same time, in the aftermath of it all, Shariah Law for America will help us build a better society based on freedom, justice and peace.

Some of the topics we'll cover include:

  • The one-eye
  • Secret Societies
  • Fiat currencies
  • New World Order
  • False flag operations

What this book is not about

This book is not about having any sort of revolution. It's about righting what's wrong. Furthermore, SLA is not about imposing views on others, rather, it's about providing guidance for today's and tomorrow's world.

How the project will be carried out

My writing style for this book will somewhat mimic the Quran, structured but non linear. Remember, it took 23 years for the Quran to be downloaded. And the verses were revealed as the situation of the early Muslims progressed. Example, when the Muslims first started praying, they looked toward the Holy Land (Jerusalem). But the command came that they look toward Mecca. A group of people became infuriated and mocked the Prophet and his God for literally turning on their heels to face a different Qibla (prayer direction). The Prophet was speechless to their assaults  So the verse came down from the Almighty, tell those who mock, that all the lands of the East and West belong to Allah. You don't need a PHD from Harvard to figure out this is the good Lord's way of saying you may pray which ever direction I want!

Furthermore, I'll infuse the book with my personal experiences so I can better relate the words of 1400+ years ago to today's world.

What's so exciting about this project is that we are cross referencing the Quran with the teachings and prophecies of the Prophet Mohammad in reference to the world around AND for the first time in Islamic history, analyze Muslim texts from a story teller's point of view. There are over 6,000 verses in the Quran. About 7,000 Hadith. Fortunately, I know what's going in the book (not in what order), I just need to turn the manuscript into reality.

How your money will be used

This is where YOU come in! The money raised is the absolute minimum needed to get at least 250 quality books printed just so I can distribute them to independent bookstores and have some on hand for those thirsty for knowledge. More than half of that raised will go toward other necessities like a  cover design illustrator, an editor, and proofreader. I can manage the website and web traffic on my own, and hopefully have something left over to convert the book over to Kindle and other devices.

Just an FYI, I'm not going solo on this journey. Some of the funds are going toward a righteous Imam to oversee the project. Although the Prophet said he who gives a judgement based on the best of his (religious) knowledge but is not in accordance with the Quran and Hadith still gets one reward. While he who passes judgment in accordance with the Quran and Hadith gets double the reward. Under no circumstance do I want fallacies in this book due to ignorance or careless mistakes on my part!

Oh, to make this project Shariah compliant, the Prophet Mohammad said it is better for a man to take a piece of rope, go into the wilderness, tie a bunch of wood together, and bring them back to the marketplace for sale than to beg others. Kickstarter dissuades project creators from asking for donations, I mean it. If you want to pledge the minimum of $1.00 just to come on the backer only forums to ask questions about Islam, that is totally cool with me. Just don't waste anymore of our hard earned money than you have to :)

Rewards

All rewards in exchange for your pledges are listed on the right hand column starting from the top of the page. All rewards are fairly priced and no matter which reward you choose, you will get a copy of the book. As a show of gratitude to our Kickstarter backers, KS backers shall be the first to get their orders fulfilled no less than a month before the general public. This is our way for saying thanks for believing :)

Risks and challenges

Luckily self publishing a book is a lot less challenging than producing a movie. But some risks albeit almost non existent remain such as death or major illness. Luckily I'm already in the process of compiling the verses from the Quran and Hadith needed to work off of. So it's just me sitting myself down and getting to work. I know some good local book publishers and attaining graphic designers and proof readers from my connections back in Hwood should be easy. Thank you for taking the time to view this project and even if you don't buy the book, ask me any question about Islam!
