HARRISONBURG, Va. --
Sharia, or Islamic law, is concerned with preserving five things: faith, life, lineage, intellect and property, James Madison University engineering professor Adebayo Ogundipe told a crowd here Friday night.
Ogundipe spoke at the college during a ceremonial Eid celebration of the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
“These things are already guaranteed in the Constitution,” he said, which makes the U.S. already Sharia-friendly.
Ogundipe shared his “crash course” on Sharia because its ultimate goal is human welfare, he said. He figures he’s one who might ease the way for others, including non-Muslims, to live in peace, especially now at the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
