As BH said, 1% owning 99% wealth. sharia makes sure of economic redistribution.
Sharia protects the weakest against the rich.
A rich may get immoral if he stops caring for the poor because he believes that what he earned is by his talent. Its untrue, he din't really earn the talent, gratefulness to God keeps him humble and makes him give charity.

If God is loving to the criminal, it would be injustice to the victim.
So would you say that people who die in the act of murdering innocent people are in Hell?
i find punishment for rape lenient if its less than capital punishment.
As long as it's
not in excess and a person who gets
violent when "uninhibited".
2.219. They ask you about
intoxicating drinks and games
of chance(gambling). Say: "In both there
is great evil, though some use
for people, but their evil is
greater than their usefulness. " They also ask you what they
should spend (in God's cause
and for the needy). Say: "What
is left over (after you have
spent on your dependents'
needs). " Thus does God make clear to you His Revelations,
that you may reflect
96:14. Knows he not that Allah does see (what he does)?
15. Nay! If he (Abu Jahl) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock,
16. A lying, sinful forelock!
Also the fronal lobe is responsible for lying and sinning as Qur'an said 1400 years back.

It's pretty simple actually, people should stop being immoral because it's the right thing to do.
I'm guessing you are fishing for a particular answer? If god were needed for morality, you'd never see religious people killing one another and you'd only see atheists acting immoral. In my experience, the opposite is usually true. In fact, god has been one of the main justifications for people acting immoral throughout history.

I say the OT was modified by a bunch of fanatic terrorists during many times in history and they blamed it on God and they are still doing it to grab land, to kill and call themselves as chosen!!
Really? So, you think the Old Testament was correct?
If so, I really don't know how to effectively respond to that assertion. It's clear to me that the Old Testament "God" was a capital creep!!
You think God changes from OT to NT to Qur'an?
OT is a revelation but got corrupted as people added their own desires in it.
So...we are talking, then, about the 'rich' exploiters of the system, and not the general public....is that correct (my thinking that is what you mean)?
1 a : an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger b (1) : an instance of this emotion (2) : a state marked by this emotion 2 : anxious concern : solicitude 3 : profound reverence and awe especially toward God 4 : reason for alarm

So, you ARE saying that rape deserves the death penalty. Is that correct? Again, is this thread a push for Sharia law? EDIT: It really makes me wonder what your personal experience is with "rape." I have not personally experienced it, nor has anyone in my family.
Recently in India a 5 yr old was raped by her neighbour for two days and things inserted in her.
He deserves nothing less than a public execution or will you advocate mercy for him?
And, a mature and healthy adult will NOT be inspired to "rape" or otherwise commit a sin against another person just due to drinking beer - unless they are already screwed up by their upbringing.
I am not saying drinking causes rape.
It just increases the chances of rape, violence, rash driving etc.
The only stats I could find were 435,000 deaths/year in the US and ~5 million deaths/year worldwide.
By 1954 the major U.S. tobacco companies had formed the Tobacco Industry Research Council to counter the growing health concerns. With counsel from TIRC, tobacco companies began mass-marketing filtered cigarettes and low-tar formulations that promised a "healthier" smoke. The public responded, and soon sales were booming again.
Getting rid of religion and forcing people to be aware of the natural effects of their actions on themselves and others might do the trick. I'm sure a lot of people would be shocked once they were exposed to the effects of their actions without a barrier to protect them.
Do I think the actual (possible) "creator" changes? No. But, the RELIGIONS certainly change "God" around to suit their motives....there is no question about that.
How can you say that and not suspect
the same about the Qu'ran
(Mohammed's) version of it?
