[This injunction defies reason:
It is not for a believing man or a believing woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decided a matter, that they should [thereafter] have any choice about their affair. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has certainly strayed into clear error. (Quran 33:36)]
More nonsense! "This injunction defies reason" The author of this line has not understood the Quran
The role of the Quran is to bring about peace, balance and prosperity for everyone regardless of what or who they are, THE ONLY PROVISO is that everyone should help and not hinder this. If you accept what is right then you cannot disagree and do wrong, hence the command that the peacemaker, the human rights leader, the one who has the interest of everyone at heart in all affairs, should and must be listened to PROVIDED HE DOES EVERYTHING ACCORDING TO THE QURAN.
In the USA people put hand on hearts when the national anthem is played and swear allegiance to the constitution. This is right but when the Quran says the same, it it is wrong!
