There are good points with Sharia, Moslems frequently point out that Widows and orphans should be looed after for example. Unfortunately there are many areas where decent civilized people will disagree with Islamic rules.
Problems with Muslim Sharia Law
Sharia allows slavery. Mohammed himself owned 40 unfortunate slaves. Slaves are helpless before their masters, can be bought and sold and masters can have sex with female slaves whenever they want to.

Wives may be beaten simply for being too independent and not respectful enough.
People may be severely flogged for drinking or gambling
Of course, don't expect any men to be flogged. Even though President Anni drank Sula shiraz, the courts failed to look into the case and have him flogged.
