As Salaam Alaikum is Secularism Shirk can anyone explain please ? I have heard many Muslims say Secularism is Idolatry is this true ? Does only God have the right be the Legislator since God created Natural Laws Day and Night and the Universe and Humanity and Life ? Does denying that God is the Legislator is this a form of Atheism or Godless thinking ? Yes I know there are Religions that would allow a Secular State or World view but this just proves that these religions are man made religions anyone agree ? I believe man made law is denying God would Islam agree ? Also do Islamic Texts say anything about why God is the Legislator not Mankind since God is the Creator of Everything and Everyone I know Darwinism/Evolution/Materialism does deny this since Atheism/Secularism/Humanism leads to a Corrupt Society in my opinion and view thank you agreed ? I know that the United States of America and many other Western Nations have Freedom of Religions in their Constitutions but so did the Soviet Union's Constitution but the Soviet Union was still an Atheist Society and Marxism/Socialism/Communism is Atheist Communists are Materialists are they not ? A Secular Society leads to a Corrupt Society it is Inevitable what does everyone here think feel free to agree or disagree with me thank you very much ? Both Capitalism and Communism are both Secular Materialist Systems in my view. as is Nationalism Patriotism and Atheism. I think Secularists worship their Politicans not God they take their Political Leaders as gods a Cult of Personality I don't much care for Western Politics many Americans I know just view Politics as Entertainment which it is not made to be Entertainment Politics is about Solving Problems not Entertainment like Sports. There are Religions and Followers of Religion that take their Clergy as gods or like a god doesn't the Quran say this anyone know what verse ? God sent Prophets and Messengers to guide Humanity to follow God's Laws correct ? I know I typed a lot of words on this post but I had a lot to say thank you would anyone here agree with my staements and views ? My last question is if Secularists and or Atheists and Humanists have no Absolute Morality than all you have is man made Laws/man made Constitutions/man made Morality that can Change why is this good ?

(Assuming partners for God)
(Assuming partners for God) There are indirect connotations too for Shirk in al-Ebadah. Already we have seen how people "worship" their clergy or secular leaders just by giving them the status of lawgivers. In fact “worship” may include even “worship” of money or one’s own desires. For example God says:
“Have you not seen the one who takes his desires as his God

Ten facts about Sharia law (Islamic law)
The aim of the Shari'ah is to preserve society in a form which is healthy and fruitful for the inhabitants on earth. Shari'ah helps mankind live the way the creator has decreed us to live, and to ease our worship to Allah (SWT).
In (Western) society, there is a race to maintain a basic lifestyle, to provide food, shelter and clothing for you or your family, only to meet the basic necessities. You will see this same behaviour anywhere where the Shari ah is not implemented. To provide even the most basic commodities such as electricity, gas and water it is a hassle and something western democracy has failed to give or provide us even till today, this is why we find the population resorting to crime, effectively leading to mass corruption and depression.
Is it in the governments interest to serve God (Allah) or the political elite? With broken families, high rape, paedophilia, massive percentages of alcohol related diseases and deaths, homelessness, obesity. These statistics reflect the success of a government which rules by man made law and it paints a picture that tells us the government only serve the interests of the political elite, including big corporations, banks and man's desires.
Let us look to what the Shari'ah offers us, and lets see what Allah (SWT) has legislated for mankind. Ultimately, if any book is divine, it will detail all affairs for man and tell us how to deal with today's problems.
A believer adheres to
these moral values because his nature, fortified by faith, induces him to do so,
and because the religion he believes in commands him with them and promises him
a reward for them in the Hereafter. Secularism, on the other hand, even in its
less virulent form that satisfies itself with removing religion from political
life, rejecting it and the innate values as a basis for legislation, undermines
the two foundations for moral values in the hearts of mankind. As for
secularism in its extreme atheistic form, it completely demolishes these two
foundations and replaces them with human whims, either the whims of a few rulers
in dictatorial systems or the whims of the majority in democratic systems.
you seen the one who has taken his own desire as his god? Would you then be a
guardian over him?” (Quran 25:43)
Since whims and desires
are by their nature constantly changing, the values and behaviors based on them
are also mutable. What is considered today to be a crime, punishable by law
with the severest of penalties, and causes its practitioners to be deprived of
certain rights granted to others, becomes permissible tomorrow, or even
praiseworthy, and the one who objects to it becomes “politically incorrect.”
This shift from one point of view to its opposite, as a result of society’s
estrangement from innate religious values, is a frequent occurrence. However
ignorant a traditional society may be, it, or many of its members, will maintain
some innate values; but the further a society penetrates into secularism, the
fewer such individuals will become, and the more marginal their influence will
be, until the society collectively rebels against those same innate religious
values it used to uphold. There may be another reason for some traditional
cultures to maintain innate religious values:
they might appeal to their desires, or they represent their heritage and do not
conflict with their desires.
