The changed objective & the betrayal
In some diseased conditions, the human body even fails to discriminate its own cells from the cells of the invading bugs. In such misplaced immunity, the body’s own organs is perceived foreign and get badly damaged. It is called autoimmune disease. Similarly, the self-harming conceptual state runs very high in the Muslim ummah. The disease has gone to the extent that the Muslims have turned themselves the worst enemy of the Muslims and Islam. In the early days of Islam, the Muslims fought unending chain of wars for defending the Islamic state –established and headed by the prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam himself. More than 70 per cent the companions sacrificed their life such holy combat. Because of their huge sacrifice, the Islamic state could stand on its feet and showcase the beauty of sharia, hudud, shura, trans-ethnic unity, jihad, khilafa and other Qur’anic prescription; hence could create a strong trend of mass conversion to Islam. The state and its various infrastructures worked as the powerful instruments for social engineering to embed Islam’s core teaching and values in the heart and mind of the new Muslims. Thus, the Islamic state worked as a powerful vehicle to take people to the paradise.
But now, the priority has changed. The Muslims now fight wars, sacrifice lives and establish state with an exact opposite purpose. They fight wars in coalition with the kuffars to stop emergence of any Islamic state. Instead of implementing sharia, they showcase kuffar law in their judiciary. They celebrate the divisive walls, borders and flags of the Muslim lands, instead of dismantling them. They even welcome the enemies in the Muslim lands and ask them to bomb the Muslim cities and villages –as seen in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. Instead of showcasing Islam, they showcase racism, nationalism, secularism, fascism, despotism, monarchism and other evil ideologies through their constitution, administration, state media and politics. Betrayal against the Qur’anic agenda thus has become the politics of the Muslims.
Such betrayal against one’s own faith doesn’t exist anywhere among the kuffars. Even the illiterate idolaters of an Indian village know the exact meaning and implication of idolatry. So, they do not do any compromise in the practice of their religion; so the primitive ignorance (jaheliyah) like idolatry could thrive even in modern India. Hence the most devout worshippers of idols, cows, snakes, monkeys and staffs could easily defeat the modern secularists in general election; and could become the Prime Minister, the Chief Minister or MP in India by popular votes. On the other hand, Islam stays as the most misunderstood as well as the most betrayed religion by its own followers. Such misunderstanding cum betrayal is even much deeper among the mullahs, the imams and the religious leaders. So, in most of the Muslim countries, in order to get any electoral victory, one receives impetus from his own followers to get secularised and de-linked from Islam. The Qur’anic Islam –as was practised by the prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam and his companions, stands alien and ignored even in the Muslim lands.
Such a milieu of betrayal and misunderstanding has twisted even the leaders and the activists of the so-called Islamic parties to entirely shift their political agenda. As a result, the Qur’anic vocabularies like sharia, shura, hudud, khilafa, jihad and many others are dropped from their intellectual or religious discourse, let alone struggling for the implementation. The fear of evil forces -not the fear of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la, has influenced to bring such political swing. While inside the mosque or standing for rituals, they declare their allegiance to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’ala; but while in politics, judiciary or other worldly business, they appear in their real colour. Then they show their full ideological and cultural conversion to secularism and complete submission to kufr law. Like any nationalist or racist, they too, celebrate their political cessation from other Muslims based on ethnic, linguistic or tribal identity. For protecting such divisions, they even fight bloody wars.
Such inconsistency in faith and practice is indeed the clear symptom of deviation from the Qur’anic straight path. Such deviation now overwhelms the whole Muslim World. The key point of Islam is not to build mere mosques, madrasahs and minarets; but to change the whole world. Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la’s Own narrative “li’euzhira’hu alad’dini kullihi” (meaning: to overwhelm all religions of the world) is very explicit on that issue. The early Muslims exactly got the message; hence, a few millions of them could do a lot to overwhelm huge parts of Asia, Africa and Europe by Islamic faith. But now, the 1.5 billion Muslims are doing exactly the opposite. Instead of influencing the others, they are themselves overwhelmed by the kuffar faiths and ideologies.
Today’s Muslims terribly fail to understand even the key message of Islam; it is indeed the mother of all failures. Islam was never revealed for the man-fearing cowards who even can’t announce publicly their faith on sharia, hudud, jihad, khilafa, border-dismantling Muslim unity and Islamic state. There is no proof that Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la has ever built any paradise for such fake Muslims. A Muslim is required to express his Allah-fearing courage in his politics and warfare. The early Muslims sacrificed their life and wealth for spreading and defending Islam. But today, the Muslims are moving exactly in the opposite direction; they are spreading and defending their own perversion. They even die for the cause of the enemies. More than a million fought and several hundred thousands died in both the World Wars for the cause of the western imperialists. For the same known enemies, several millions are now fighting in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and many other parts of the world. Because of them, the whole Muslim world now stands fully occupied by the internal and external enemies who fiercely oppose any victory of Islam even in the Muslim majority countries. Such a betrayal against Islam cum submission to the kuffars has serious consequences; it makes people fully unfit for making any acceptable taubah. It also deprives them from the Divine guidance and blessings. As a result, they get farther away from Islam. The sustained deviation and downfall of the Muslim ummah indeed a living testimony to that.
The culture of compromise
Islam is a religion of all-time full submission to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Hence, there is no scope of part-time compromise or short-term deviation from the Qur’anic roadmap. Every wilful compromise or deviation is a major sin and nurtures a culture of rebellion against Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Only a quick correction of such deviation and deep repentance on doing such sins can save one from eternal hellfire. A Muslim ceases to exist as Muslim with the continuation of any compromise or deviation. Such a compromise or deviation indeed takes a Muslim to the enemy camp. It is the route of Iblis that made him a rebel against Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. But it is awful that such compromise on Islam or the deviation from the Qur’anic roadmap has become the norm in Muslim life. Because of such compromise and deviation, even many obligatory key parts of Islam like sharia, hudud, jihad, shura, khilafa are no more visible in the Muslim World. On such flip-flopping believers, the holy Qur’an reveals a very stern warning in the following verse: “Surely, those who disbelieve after believing and then increase in the disbelief, their repentance shall not be accepted, and these are the people who stay deviated.” –(Sura al-Imran, verse 90). So, the consequence of any compromise and deviation is very catastrophic; his or her taubah doesn’t get accepted. And, the rejection of taubah equals nothing but entering into hellfire for an infinity.
The Muslim enmity against Islam has other ugly faces. If a brave Muslim stands against the internal or external occupying forces and starts working with a mission for establishing sharia, hudud, khialfa, shura, jihad and trans-ethnic Muslim unity –as was practised by the prophet (peace be upon him) and the early Muslims, is quickly labelled as terrorist. As if, adherence to Qur’anic Islam and the prophet’s tradition is the doctrine of terrorism. The brutal murder of such Islamists by the US-led coalition in any part of the Muslim World even get celebrated by these so-called Muslims.
The Muslims’ failure to distinguish jihad from terrorism is huge. They even distort the dictionary meaning these two distinctively different words. Jihad is the holy war prescribed by Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la for dismantling the rule of kufr and for implementing His Own sovereignty and His sharia law. It is the defensive and executive arm of Islam. Without jihad, the Muslims can’t engage in the Divine mission of “enjoining the right and eradicating the wrong”. In absence of jihad, the full practice of Islam becomes impossible even in Muslim lands. The occupying forces in the Muslim countries never leave any space for practice of such Islam.
Whereas, terrorism –as per standard lexicon, is the use of violent act to frighten people of an area for political and economic gain. It is the offensive arm of kufr to bring the rule of kufr and to dismantle the rule of sharia. Terrorism was the tool of the European colonialists to occupy and exploit the weaker Asian and African countries. This way, they abused the weakness of the weaker people of the world for their imperialistic benefit. In Muslim countries, they act as terrorists not only to dismantle Muslim rule, but also to abolish the pre-existing sharia law and judiciary. Israel is using the same terrorism against the people of Palestine. And India is showing the same in Kashmir.
Now the US-led coalition is using the same tool to terrorise the people of the whole Muslim World. Recently, the US Army has dropped 10 ton bomb –called mother of all bombs, in the eastern part of Afghanistan. Its destructive power is only next to a nuclear bomb. Flattening a hill or killing some Islamists was not the only target; the objective was to show the terrorising power of the USA. The predator beasts show their teeth with the same purpose. For the same reason, they also dropped nuclear bombs in the past. To give sustenance to their imperialist dominance in the world, displaying such terrorising power is the part of their key strategy.
The greatest benevolence act on earth
Iblis never failed to understand the meaning of Islam. He didn’t fail either to understand Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la’s vision, mission and objective vis-à-vis the creation of mankind. Hence, from day one, he stood against it. Hence, ignorance vis-à-vis Islam’s objective is not an issue among the followers of Shaitan. Even in the very early days of Islam, the kuffars of Arabia didn’t make any mistake to understand the agenda of Islam either. They could foresee their doom in Islam’s victory –as was the case also with Nimrod and Pharaoh. Hence, in those formative days of Islam, all brands of the enemies made the coalition to destroy the nascent Islamic state headed by the great prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam. Then, the newly formed Islamic state was inflicted with an unending chain of wars. Even the two contemporary World Powers –the Roman and the Persian Empires, engaged in war against the prophet’s state. Islam could secure its security and stand as the number one World Power only after defeating those enemies.
Now the Muslims are known for their forgotten mission. They live without an Islamic state; and feels no responsibility to establish one and defend it. In fact, they find it obstructive against fulfilment of their own whims and that of their evil masters. Hence, they have conveniently forgotten the indispensable part of the Muslim history that the last prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) was not only a preacher but also the founder of a state and the first head of that state. The Muslims now show little interest to live with that prophetic tradition. Instead, they have turned inimical to that key prophetic project of Islam; they even call whoever want to take that prophetic path as terrorist with full congruence with the enemy narrative.
In any segment of history, the absence of an Islamic state is catastrophic. The Muslims then miss the powerful state infrastructure on their side. Instead, they are then subjected to state-run social and political engineering only aimed at dumping them in the hellfire. Whereas, the benefit of the Islamic state is huge. The state and the state institutions then turn into powerful instruments to protect people from the hellfire. Through pious leadership, enlightening education, humanising cultural engineering, Divine law and the state-run welfare, an Islamic state works as the most benevolent institute on earth. Because of such a state power, the early Muslims could rescue millions of people from their awful march towards the eternal hellfire. It was indeed the greatest and most successful rescue effort in the whole history of mankind. Economic aid of a trillion dollar to a man is nothing in comparison to such a rescue from the hellfire. One can only understand the worth of such a rescue if he comprehends the meaning of the following Qur’anic verse: “Surely, those who disbelieve and die while they are unbelievers, the whole earth full of gold shall not be accepted from one of them, though he should offer to ransom himself with it.” –(Sura al-Imran, verse 91). By bringing millions of people to the path of paradise –as was possible through conversion to Islam, the early Muslims thus could accomplish the greatest benevolent task in the whole history of the mankind. Through such huge rescue efforts, they could rightly prove their credential as the best people among all people of all ages –as narrated by the prophet (peace be upon him).
Corrupting the meaning of Islam
It is a great mockery that most of the ulama, mullahs, imams and political leaders tell the people that Islam means peace. But what is that peace? And where was that peace found in the history of Islam? Did the prophets of Islam like Prophet Nuh (peace be upon him), Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him), Prophet Musa (peace be upon him), Prophet Isa (peace be upon him), Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and many other prophets and their followers had ever enjoyed such peace? For them, peace exists only in the paradise. Those who tell that Islam means peace, probably they talk about peace that comes through inaction, submission or peaceful co-existence with the evil forces –as they themselves practise in their life. But such peace has never been the part of the life of these great prophets. They took mission of “enjoining the right and eradicating the wrong (a’amaru bil ma’ruf and nehi’anil munkar)” as the life-long motto, hence invited incessant challenges from the enemies. The enemies of Divine Truth never allow such prophetic mission go unchallenged. As a result, from day one of their prophet hood, they had to suffer oppression, suppression, persecution and eviction. Thousands of the great prophets and their followers were labelled as the public enemy by the contemporary rulers; and were killed brutally. So embracing Islam doesn’t bring any peace in believers’ life on earth; rather pushes them towards dangerous challenges that even cost their life. In fact, it gives the believer a Divine purpose of survival; and brings a life-long struggle for the revealed Truth against all ranges of falsehood.
In fact, “Islam means peace” is the most ridiculous expression of ignorance on Islam. They reiterate such cliché with a sinister political cum ideological motive. They want to hide Islam’s real vision, mission and objective by spreading such concocted narrative. This way, they are harming Islam. Islam’s dictionary meaning and ideological connotation is totally different from such hugely circulated lie. In fact, Islam is all about full submission to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’al’s Qur’anic orders. The word “Islam” is the verbal noun of the verb “aslama” which means “to surrender”. Any rebellion against any of the Qur’anic commands is kufr; and such rebellion is indeed the distinctive marker of a kafir. And those who fully enter into such submission are called true Muslim. And how to submit to all Qur’anic prescriptions, the prophet (peace be upon him) and his companions set the perfect example. Implementation of sharia, hudud, shura, Islamic state cum khilafa, jihad, trans-ethnic Muslim unity comes under the gamut of such submission. The same is true even now –as it was true at the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
