should all muslims try to live according to Sharia ?

No matter where in the world you live ?

Update:

There is no "terrorist" one. Sharia is a peaceful and positive law.

    Definately! Just because you may not live in a Muslim country doesn't mean you should give into the temptations in a non Muslim country. Just think of the rewards from God!

    Well I would say no. You can't always obey sharia law because your governments laws will oppose it. Also I think some of the aspects of sharia law need to be adapted as they cannot be carried out in modern life. If we were to cut all thiefs hands off in Britain then like 1 in 20 people would have missing hands. So once again no.

    Which interpretation of Sharia law?

    The terrorists' interpretation or the other less violent one?

    Edit:

    So the not-violent interpretation it is then... isnt that what Muslims are supposed to live in the first place?

    unfortunately when the word Shariah law is brought up people automatically think stoning to death or beheading. ignorance is bliss.

    they dont know that it's HUGE and covers EVERY aspect of human relation like marriage, divorce, inheritance and many other issues.
