Al-Barr: World Constitutions Allow No Contradicting Articles, Egypt No Exception
Al-Barr: World Constitutions Allow No Contradicting Articles, Egypt No Exception
Egypt’s charter-writing panel assures that it will not accept articles that contradict Sharia (Islamic Law), since that would undermine the main basis of the Constitution itself.

Dr. Abdul Rahman Al-Barr, member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Bureau and also member of the Constituent Assembly (CA), affirmed that the Muslim Brotherhood’s vision with regard to Sharia (Islamic Law) has always been very clear, even before the revolution, and that Sharia is the most important determinant of Egyptian personality and identity.

In an interview with Al-Jazeera Mubasher (Live)-Egypt satellite TV channel, Al-Barr explained that the Muslim Brotherhood has been defending Sharia since the day it was founded, and paid a heavy price for it – with its brave men thrown in jails and hung on the gallows. He stressed that Sharia is the most favorable and appropriate law framework for the people, and the only one capable of taking the homeland forward onto the road of progress in all fields.

"Sharia, from the Muslim Brotherhood’s point of view, is a comprehensive way of life that regulates and organizes the life of the individual, the community and the nation as well as all institutional relationships in the domestic arena and state relationships with other states in the international arena.

"Sharia is not only an article in the Constitution, it is the spirit that pervades the whole national charter. We, therefore, cannot accept any article that violates Sharia in any way at all. This is an absolutely clear unambiguous fact. This is the case in all constitutions in the world: no contradictory Articles are allowed to be written in the same constitution."
