I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
You people want to act like because there is no Muslim Pope that there is no Islamic leadership or established religous dogma.
So there is historical precedent to re-conquering land that was once Muslim.
Ijma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaThe hadith of Muhammad which states that "My community will never agree upon an error" is often cited as support for the validity of ijmā'. Sunni Muslims regard ijmā' as the third fundamental source of Sharia law, after the divine revelation of the Qur'an, the prophetic practice or Sunnah. The analogical reasoning or qiyas is described as fourth source in Sunni Islam, whereas Shi'a Islam uses 'aql (intellect). [B]Many conservative Muslim writers have claimed that the use of ijmā' makes Islamic law compatible with democracy.[/B] Usuli Shia accepts ijmā' under restricted conditions as a source of Islamic law. Technically, it is “the unanimous doctrine and opinion of the recognized religious authorities at any given time”.
Various proponents of liberal movements within Islam criticize the traditional view that ijmā' is only a consensus among traditional Islamic scholars (ulema). They claim that truly democratic consensus should involve the entire community rather than a small and conservative clerical class, especially since there is no hierarchical system in Islam
Sort of puts the idea that the Ijma is the end all of Islamic beliefs does it not as none seem to agree as to how much to accept or not
