As long as Islam is the belief system the pendulum will always swing back to Sharia

Iranian MPs – before & after the Islamic revolution of 1979.

The protests in Iran are not only about?economics and politics, they’re also?about Islam. Iran in the 1960’s saw mini skirts, smiling women with uncovered hair, men and women freely holding hands on?university campuses, and in the air there was a sense that?progress was possible. Then the Shah was deposed during the?1979 Islamic Revolution, and?the Ayatollah and imams came to power. Iran had been purified, returned to its Islamic roots of Mohammed. Today, we are witnessing the Persian people rise up again against the Iranian Islamic regime and say “no more”. How will this play out?

It will play out the way it always does. For a time there will be a secularism once again in government and a moderate/modern version of Islam. Then inevitably because the ideology of Islam still exists the pendulum will once again swing to Sharia and the cycle will continue.

Over the 1400 years of Islam, there is?a pattern that can be observed?that I call THE GRAVITY OF MOHAMMED.?It can be visualized as a cycling wave graph, or a sine wave.[…] An Islamic nation will cycle between secularism?and hard line Sharia, a push and pull of modernity vs?Mohammed or civilizations retracting and embracing the perfect example of Mohammed.?It? is hard to escape the Sunna of Mohammed which the Sharia implements. As long as you have the remnants of Islam in a society, Mohammed will always return. Said another way, as long as a society believes Mohammed is the prophet of Allah, Sharia will return.

Examples of this are Turkey and Iran. Turkey under Ataturk pulled away from Mohammed, only to return with Erdogan. Iran pulled away from Sharia under the Shah only to return under the Ayatollah, and now there is a good possibility that the?Persians may push away?from the Sharia again.?However, this will surely be temporary as the only way to destroy rule by Sharia is to destroy the belief that Mohammed is the prophet of Allah (the Shahada). Thus, the?Gravity of Mohammed predicts that although Iran will pull away from Sharia for now and?maybe for years to come, it will?fall back again to its Islamic roots. Like?gravity, Mohammed is always there.
