78. What is the intended outcome of the tradition of the Qur’an?

The Islamic Assembly Council has two types of laws it enacts:

1. One type is for the management of itself: how to elect the president and vice president, number of committees and number of representatives per committee, wages earned, number of holidays, conditions for which to hold public sessions and closed door sessions, conditions for secret ballots and open ballots, and for the interpellation of the minister etc.

2. The second type is for that of the nation and the people.

Allah SWT has also implemented a set of laws and system upon Himself and another set for the people, which have been revealed through the prophets. Laws that have been imposed upon Himself are called1سُنَّةَ اللَّـهِ )Gods Tradition), including such laws as:

• The Law of Guidance:

إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا لَلْـهُدَىٰ

“Surely upon Us rests the guidance”2

• The Law of Accounting:

إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا حِسَابَهُم

“Then upon Us shall rest their reckoning.3

• The Law of Provision of Blessings:

عَلَى اللَّـهِ رِزْقُهَا

“Its provision rests on God.”4

• The Law of Security:

إِنَّا لَنَنصُرُ رُسُلَنَا

“Surely We shall help Our Messenger.”5

• The Law of Mercy:

كَتَبَ رَبُّكُمْ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِهِ الرَّحْمَةَ

“Your Lord has prescribed for Himself mercy.”6

But the laws that have been prescribed upon mankind are considered to be Sharia Law.
