American Muslim Group Warns Muslims Against Working in Law Enforcement

The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) cautioned American Muslims in a 22-page Arabic-language paper
in 2008 against working in law enforcement in countries which do not
rule by Allah's dictates. One of their main concerns was that such work
might cause Muslims to gain love and respect for secular laws:

...there are many evils which result from working in law enforcement,
the greatest of which is compelling people to obey rulings which do not
come from Allah. It could also cause reverence and love for these
rulings to enter the heart of the police officer, and perhaps spread to
the hearts of his family members and other Muslims who see him at the
mosque or even Muslims in general. They could lose conviction of governance by Allah, and become pleased with a legal system that does not come from Allah. (
