Is UAE a muslim nation.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
In one of the answers to a question, u happned to mention this "If you live in a muslim nation like the UAE,". What do you mean by a muslim nation?? is it where islamic sharia is followed?? then UAE is not such a place. Please clarify,
Jazakallah Khair for all the knowledge you are sharing with us.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Respected brother, it is indeed unfortunate that although 50+ nations or countries of the world today claim to be muslim nations, to the best of our knowledge not even one amongst them has been able to apply Shariah Law in its entirety in their countries!
When one says that such and such a country is a muslim nation today, it only implies that the majority of the its citizens and/or its rulers claim to be believers.under no circumstances did we mean to imply that the UAE or any other nation has been successful in implementing the Laws of Shariah in its entirety in their lands.
We sincerely apologize if our statements might have given rise to any confusions or misunderstandingsfor Allah is our witness, that was never our intention.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
