কোরআনী জ্ঞানের অপরিহার্যতা 

জনগণের জীবনে রাজনৈতিক, সাংস্কৃতিক, চারিত্রিক ও নৈতীক বিপ্লবের পূর্বে যে বিপ্লবটি অপরিহার্য তা হলো চেতনা-রাজ্যে কোর’আনী জ্ঞানের গভীর বিপ্লব। এটিই মহান আল্লাহতায়ালার পবিত্র সূন্নত। নবীজী (সাঃ)কে তাই সর্বপ্রথম নামায-রোযা, হজ্ব-যাকাত বা জিহাদ দিয়ে ইসলামী রাষ্ট্র গড়ার কাজ শুরু করতে বলেননি। বরং তাঁকে প্রথম যে নির্দেশটি দিয়েছেন তা হলো “ইকরা” তথা পড় অর্থাৎ জ্ঞানার্জনে মগ্ন হওয়ার। নবীজী (সাঃ)কে বলা হয়েছে, রাতের অর্ধেকাংশ বা এক-তৃতীয়াংশ ধীরে ধীরে পবিত্র কোরআন পাঠে কাটিয়ে দিতে –যেমনটি বর্ণিত হয়েছে সুরা মুজাম্মিলে। পাঁচ ওয়াক্ত নামায ফরজ করা হয়েছে নবুয়ত লাভের দীর্ঘ  এগারো বছর পর। রোযা, হজ্ব, যাকাত ও জিহাদ ফরজ হয়েছে তারও পর। ঘোড়ার আগে গাড়ি জোড়া যায় না। তাই কোর’আনের জ্ঞানে আলোকিত করার পূর্বে যারা ইসলামী রাষ্ট্র গড়ার লড়াই শুরু করেন -তারা বস্তুতঃ ঘোড়ার আগে গাড়ি জুড়তে চান। তাতে শুধু রক্তক্ষয়ই বাড়ে, কিন্তু কাজের কাজ কিছুই হয়না।

ইসলামের গৌরব যুগে মুসলিমদের মাঝে পবিত্র কোরআনের জ্ঞানার্জনের আগ্রহটি  এতই প্রবল ছিল যে, তারা নিজেদের মাতৃভাষাকে দাফন করে আরবী ভাষাকে গ্রহণ করেছিল। ফলে ইরাক, সিরিয়া, মিশর, মরক্বো, আলজিরিয়া, লিবিয়া, মালি, সূদানের দেশের জনগণ আরব না হয়েও আরবে পরিণত হয়েছিল। কিন্তু আজ অবস্থাটি ভিন্ন। পবিত্র কোরআন থেকে মুসলিমদের দূরে রাখার ষড়যন্ত্রটি ছিল কাফের ব্রিটিশ শাসকদের। তাদের ভয় ছিল, মুসলিমগণ কোরআন বুঝলে তারা জানতে পারবে শরিয়তের আইন প্রতিষ্ঠা ছাড়া মুসলিম হওয়া যায় না। তারা জানবে, মুসলিমদের উপর ইসলামী রাষ্ট্রের প্রতিষ্ঠা দেয়া ও প্রতিক্ষা দেয়া ফরজ। এবং এ লক্ষ্যে জিহাদ হলো সর্বোচ্চ ইবাদত। ফলে এমন জ্ঞানের প্রচার হলে বিপদে পড়তো ব্রিটিশ ঔপনিবেশিক শাসন। ফলে তাদের প্রকল্প ছিল মুসলিমদের কোর’আন থেকে দূরে রাখা। এ লক্ষ্যকে সামনে রেখেই তারা ময়দানে নামায় মোল্লা-মৌলভীদের –যারা বলতে শুরু করে কোরআন তেলাওয়াতেই অনেক সওয়াব, বুঝার দরকার নেই। এ প্রসঙ্গে তারা নবীজীর একটি হাদীসের উল্লেখ করে। সেটি হলো, নবীজী (সাঃ) বলেছেনঃ পবিত্র কোরআনের একটি অক্ষর যে পড়বে সে ব্যক্তি দশটি নেকী পাবে। প্রশ্ন হলো, নবীজী (সাঃ) কি না বুঝে পড়তে বলেছেন? কোন সুস্থ্য ব্যক্তি কি এমন কথা বলতে পারে? খাওয়ার অর্থ খাদ্যকে গলাধঃকরণ করা এবং হজম করা; নইলে সেটিকে খাওয়া বলা যায় না। তেমনি কোন কিছু না বুঝলে কি পড়া হয়? তাছাড়া বহু আয়াত নাজিল হয়েছে পবিত্র কোরআন যাতে বুঝে পড়া হয় -সেটির উপর তাগিদ দিয়ে।

একটি জাতিকে শিক্ষিত করার কাজটি অতিশয় বিশাল। এটিই রাষ্ট্রের সবচেয়ে গুরুত্বপূর্ণ খাত। এটিকে ইসলামে পবিত্র ইবাদতের মর্যাদা দেয়া হয়েছে। ইহকালে ও আখেরাতে ব্যক্তির প্রকৃত সফলতাটি নির্ভর করে এখাতের উপর। জনগণ কতটা মুসলিম রূপে বেড়ে উঠবে সেটি নির্ভর করে জ্ঞানদানের এ আয়োজনের উপর। এজন্য চাই, লক্ষ লক্ষ শিক্ষক। চাই, লক্ষ লক্ষ শিক্ষা প্রতিষ্ঠান। চাই, প্রতি মহল্লায় পবিত্র কোর’আন শিক্ষার আয়োজন। প্রতিটি মসজিদকে এ জন্য মাদ্রাসায় পরিণত হতে হয়।  এজন্য প্রতি মুসলিমকে হয় শিক্ষক অথবা ছাত্র হতে হয় –যেমনটি নবীজী (সাঃ) বলেছেন। (হাদীসঃ মুসলিম জীবনের দুই অবস্থা। হয় সে শিক্ষক, না হয় ছাত্র।) কিন্তু বাংলাদেশে এটিই সবচেয়ে ব্যর্থ খাত।  ছাত্রগণ স্কুল, কলেজ ও বিশ্ববিদ্যালয় থেকে বেরুচ্ছে পবিত্র কোর’আনের একটি আয়াত না বুঝেই।

দেশের হাজার হাজার মাদ্রাসা থেকে যারা বেরুচ্ছে তারাও স্রেফ নিজেদের ঘর-সংসার ও রুটিরুজী নিয়ে ব্যস্ত। দেশের রাজনৈতিক ও সমাজ বিপ্লবের অঙ্গণে দায়িত্ব পালন থেকে তারা বহু দূরে। নিজেদর সার্টিফিকেট আদায় বা বেতন বৃদ্ধির জন্য তারা দলে দলে রাস্তায় নামলেও ইসলামী রাষ্ট্র ও শরিয়তের প্রতিষ্ঠা নিয়ে তাদের কোন ভাবনা নাই। আন্দোলনও নাই। আদালতে মহান আল্লাহতায়ালার শরিয়তি বিধানের বদলে কুফরি আইনকে প্রতিষ্ঠা দিলে বা সেটিকে মেনে নিলে যে মুসলিম থাকা যায় না -সে হুশই বা মাদ্রাসায় শিক্ষিতদের মাঝে ক’জনের? সে হুশ থাকলে তো তারা রাস্তায় নেমে আসতো। রাষ্ট্রপ্রধানের যে আসনে খোদ নবীজী (সাঃ) বসেছেন সে আসনে কোন ভোট-চোর, ভোট-ডাকাত ও গুম-খুনের রাজনীতির অনৈসলামিক ব্যক্তিকে বসতে দিলে যে নবীজী (সাঃ)র সূন্নত বাঁচে না এবং জনগণের ইসলাম নিয়ে বেড়ে উঠাটিও সুনিশ্চিত হয় না –সে হুশই বা ক’জনের?

 

 

 

 

 




নির্বাচনে ভোট-ডাকাতির অসভ্যতা ও অতি পজেটিভ বিষয়

যে কোন বিবেকহীন নৃশংস স্বৈরাচারির ন্যায় শেখ হাসিনার ভাবনাটি ছিল নির্বাচনে স্রেফ তার নিজের ও নিজ দলের বিজয় নিয়ে। বিজয়টি ন্যায়ের পথে হলো, না অন্যায়ের পথে হলো, নির্বাচনে কতটা নৃশংস ভাবে ভোট ডাকাতি হলো এবং ভোট প্রয়োগ থেকে জনগণকে কতটা বঞ্চিত করা হলো – শেখ হাসিনার মাঝে সে ভাবনার লেশমাত্রও নাই। অথচ সে ভাবনার মাঝেই তো মানুষের নীতি-নৈতিকতা ও সভ্য বিবেকবোধ। সে ভাবনা না থাকাটাই তো চরম অসভ্যতা। এরূপ চরিত্রটি একান্তই ডাকাতদের। ডাকাতদের কাছে গৃহস্থের ঘর থেকে অর্থলুটটাই মূল। কতটা নৃশংসতা ও বর্বরতার সাথে ডাকাতি হলো, কতজন সে ডাকাতিতে মারা পড়লো -সে ভাবনা তাদের থাকে না।

তবে সাধারণ চোর-ডাকাতদের থেকে শেখ হাসিনা ও তার দলীয়  চোর-ডাকাতদের একটি বড় রকমের পার্থক্য সহজেই নজরে পড়ে। সেটি হলো, চোর-ডাকাতগণ যত খারাপ চরিত্রেরই হোক, তাদেরও মান-সন্মানের ভয়-ভাবনা থাকে। এজন্যই তারা রাতের আঁধারে নিজেদের পরিচয় অতি গোপন রেখে ডাকাতি  করে। কারণ, ডাকাতদেরও ছেলেমেয়ে, পরিবার পরিজন নিয়ে জনগণের মাঝে বসবাসের ভাবনা থাকে। শুধু পুলিশের ভয় নয়, নিজের পরিবারের লোকজন, আত্মীয়স্বজন এবং পাড়া-প্রতিবেশী কি বলবে সে লজ্জা-শরমও থাকে। এজন্য ডাকাতি করতে  গিয়ে ধরা পড়লে ডাকাতেরা লজ্জায় পারলে গ্রাম ছেড়ে অন্যত্র চলে যায়। কিন্তু সে লজ্জা-শরম যেমন হাসিনার নাই, তেমনি তার দলের নেতাকর্মীদেরও নাই। নইলে মানুষের চোখের সামনে তারা কেন ভোট-ডাকাতিতে নামবে?

লজ্জা থাকার কারণ সম্প্রতি ঢাকার এক অভিজাত স্কুলের ছাত্রী নকল করতে গিয়ে ধরা পড়ায় আত্মহত্যা করেছে। কিন্তু লজ্জা না থাকার কারণে শেখ হাসিনার নৃশংস ডাকাতি শেষে উৎসব করেছে। যে পুলিশেরা তাকে ডাকাতির ফসল ঘরে তুলে দিয়েছে তাদের খুশি করতে ১২ই জানুয়ারি দেশের ৬৩৩টি থানার সবগুলিতে সরকারি খরচে বিশাল ভোজের আয়াজন করা হয়েছে। এবং কেন্দ্রীয় ভাবে ভোজের আয়োজন করা হয়েছে ঢাকার পুলিশ সদর দফতরে। এবং সেটি ১৩ই জানুয়ারিতে। ব্রিটিশ আমলে এবং পাকিস্তান আমলে জনগণের রাজস্বের অর্থে পুলিশদের এমন ভোজ কখনোই হয়নি। কারণ এভাবে ডাকাতির ফসল তারা কারো ঘরে তুলে দেয়নি। প্রশ্ন হলো, দেশের দরিদ্র জনগণ কি ডাকাতদের বিজয় ও বিজয় শেষে আনন্দ বাড়াতে রাজস্ব দেয়? পুলিশের প্রতি এরূপ বাড়তি  আদর কি ভোটডাকাতিতে তাদের সংশ্লিষ্টতাই প্রমাণ করে না?

সাধারণ ডাকাতগণ এভাবে ধরা পড়লে এরূপ উৎসব দূরে থাক, লজ্জায় গ্রামছাড়া হতো। কারণ, ডাকাতেরা ডাকাতি করলেও তাদের লজ্জা বলে কিছু থাকে। এজন্যই তারা রাতে লুকিয়ে, চেহারা ঢেকে ডাকাতি করে। কিন্তু শেখ হাসিনার সে লজ্জা-শরমের কোন বালাই নাই। অথচ নবীজী (সাঃ)র হাদীস, লজ্জা ঈমানের অর্ধেক। অর্থাৎ যার লজ্জা নাই, তার ঈমানও নাই। প্রশ্ন হলো, যে ব্যক্তি সামান্য ভোটের লাভ সামলাতে পারে না, তার হাতে দেশের স্বাধীনতা এবং দেশের লক্ষ লক্ষ কোটি টাকার সম্পদ নিরাপদ থাকবে কেমনে?

কিন্তু হাসিনা এবার ভোট-ডাকাতিতে হাতে নাতে ধরা পড়েছে। ভোটদান শুরুর আগেই ভোটের বাক্স ভরা হয়েছে। যেখানে ভরতে দেরী হয়েছে সেখানে দলীয় মাস্তানেরা ভোট কেন্দ্রে দাঁড়িয়ে তাদের চোখের সামনে ভোটারদের নৌকায় সিল মারতে বাধ্য করেছে। ভোট কেন্দ্রে ধানের শীষের পোলিং এজেন্টকে ঢুকতে দেয়া হয়নি। ধানের শীষের পক্ষে কোথাও মিছিল হবে এবং পোষ্টার লাগানো হবে সে সুযোগও দেয়নি। শুধু তাই নয়, ধানের শীষের ভোট দেয়াটি ধরা পড়লে ভোটারকে নির্যাতনের শিকার হতে হয়েছে। নোয়াখালীতে ৪ সন্তানের এক মা’কে ধানের শীষে ভোট দেয়াতে ধর্ষণ করা হয়েছে। সে খবরটি পত্রিকাতে ছাপা হয়েছে। রাজশাহীর তানোরের কলমা গ্রামে ধানে শীষে বেশী ভোট পড়ায় সে গ্রামে যানবাহন চলাচল বন্ধ করে দেয়া হয়েছে। বন্ধ করা হয়েছে কৃষিক্ষেতে গভীর নল কূপের পানি। গ্রামের বাইরে বেরুলে মারধর করা হয়েছে।  খবরটি ছেপেছে ঢাকার ডেইলী স্টার। শেখ হাসিনা ও তার দলীয় কর্মীদের হাতে মানবতাবিরোধী এরূপ অসংখ্য অপরাধ ঘটেছে।

প্রশ্ন হলো, এরূপ ভয়ংকর ডাকাত ধরতে বিচার বিভাগীয় তদন্ত বা বিদেশী পর্যবেক্ষকদের সাক্ষীসাবুদের প্রয়জন পড়ে কি? দেশের কোটি কোটি মানুষ এ ডাকাতির সাক্ষী। প্রত্যক্ষ সাক্ষী কয়েক লাখ সরকারি কর্মচারি। এরূপ ডাকাতদের বিচার না করাটাই তো অসভ্যতা। অথচ হাসিনার কাজ হয়েছে সে অসভ্যতার সাথে নিজে জড়িত হওয়া এবং সেটিকে প্রবলতর করা। যুদ্ধাপরাধের বিচারের ধুয়া তুলেছে স্রেফ নিজের মানবাধীকার বিরোধী নৃশংস অপরাধকে আড়াল করতে।

দেশের নর-নারী, কিশোর-কিশোরী ও শিশুসহ সকল স্তুরের মানুষ জানতে পারলো শেখ হাসিনা কত নীচু মনের নৃশংস ডাকাত। কোন দেশের প্রধানমন্ত্রী যে এতোটা খারাপ হতে পারে সেটি হয়তো তারা কোনদিনই ভাবেনি। সাধারণত চোর-ডাকাতেরা গৃহস্থের সবকিছু লুটে নেয় না। গরু-বাছুর, তালাবাটি, ঘরের দরজা-জনালা খুলে নেয় না। কিন্ত শেখ হাসিনা ও তার সহযোগী ডাকাতেরা কোন কিছুই ছেড়ে দেয়নি, সবটাই নিজ পকেটে তুলে নিয়েছে। ফলে শেখ হাসিনা তার প্রতিদ্বন্দি বিএনপির প্রার্থীর জন্য কোন কোন ভোটকেন্দ্রে একটি ভোটও ছাড়েনি। হাসিনা গোপালগঞ্জ-৩ আসনে  ২ লাখ ২৯ হাজার ৫৩১ ভোট নিয়েছে। সেখানে বিএনপির এস এম জিলানী সকল ভোটকেন্দ্র মিলিয়ে পেয়েছেন মাত্র ১২৩ ভোট। কোন সুস্থ্য মানুষ কি এমনটি ভাবতে পারে? সুষ্ঠ ভাবে ভোট পড়লে কখনোই এমনটি হয় না; কিন্তু ভোটের উপর ডাকাতি হলে এমনটিই হয়।

তবে এ ভোট-ডাকাতির নির্বাচনের একটি বিশাল পজেটিভ দিক আছে। বিরোধী জোট হেরে গিয়ে প্রমাণ করেছে শেখ হাসিনা কত বড় নৃশংস অপরাধী এবং দেশের জন্য কতটা ভয়ংকর। এভাবে নগ্ন ভাবে শেখ হাসিনার কদর্য চেহারাটি দেশের আপামর মানুষের সামনে আসাটি জরুরী ছিল। এটি ঠিক, কিছু বেঈমান জাতের মানুষ চিরকালই গরু-ছাগলকে দেবতা মনে করে। অতীতে এজাতের চেতনাশূণ্যগণ ফেরাউনকেও ভগবান বলেছে। আওয়ামী লীগের মাঝে সে জাতের মানুষ অসংখ্য হলেও বাংলাদেশের অধিকাংশ মানুষ সেরূপ নয়। হাসিনার চরিত্রটি তাদের সামনে আসাটি অতি জরুরী ছিল। ভাল হয়েছে যে, শেখ হাসিনা নিজেই তার কুৎসিত চরিত্র নিয়ে দেশবাসীর সামনে নিজে হাজির হয়েছে।

তিন শত সিটের মাঝে ১৬০ সিট দখলে নিলেও কি তাকে সরকার থেকে কেউ সরাতে পারতো? কিন্তু সেটি হলে তাতে  দীর্ঘস্থায়ী বিপদ বাড়তো দেশের স্বাধীনতার, গণতন্ত্রের ও ভবিষ্যতের। তাতে বিরোধী দলের কিছু সিট বাড়লেও তাতে ভয়ানক বিপদ বাড়তো দেশ ও দেশবাসীর। তাতে হাসিনার চরিত্রের কদর্যতাটি বিশ্বজুড়ে ঢাকা পড়তো। ঢাকা পড়তো ২০১৪ সালের ভোট ডাকাতির দুর্নাম। ঢাকা পড়তো তার গুম, খুন, চুরি-ডাকাতি এবং বিচারের নামে নিরপরাধ মানুষ হত্যার রাজনীতি। দেশের ইতিহাসের বইয়েও তার একটি সন্মানজনক স্থান থাকতো। কিন্তু মহান আল্লাহতায়ালা সেটি চাননি। তিনি চেয়েছেন, মানবতা বিরোধী এ ভয়ানক অপরাধীর মুখোশটি খুলে ফেলতে। যাতে মানুষ অদূর ভবিষ্যতে কাঠগড়ায় তুলে তার অপরাধের বিচার  করতে পারে। যাতে ইতিহাসের বইয়ে নিজের কুকর্ম নিয়ে মীর জাফরের ন্যায় হাজার হাজার বছর বেঁচে থাকে।

মহান আল্লাহতায়ালা যাকে বিশ্ববাসীর সামনে অপমানিত করতে চান তার স্বাভাবিক কাণ্ডজ্ঞানটুকু তিনি কেড়ে নেন। এমন কাণ্ডজ্ঞান-শূন্যতার কারণেই শেখ হাসিনা নিজেই নিজের বস্ত্র খুলে উলঙ্গ বেশে বিশ্ববাসীর সামনে হাজির হয়েছেন। নইলে ধানের শীষের প্রার্থীকে নিজ আসনে প্রায় তিন লাখ ভোটের মাঝে কেন ১২৩ ভোট দেয়ার ব্যবস্থা করবেন। প্রতিদ্বন্দী প্রার্থীকে এক লাখ বা ৫০ হাজার ভোট দিলেও তার বিজয় কি তাতে ঠেকে থাকতো? এভাবে নির্বাচনে শেখ হাসিনা জিতলেও তাতে বিরোধী দলগুলির ফায়দাটি হয়েছে বিশাল। হাসিনার আসল চরিত্রটি মানুষের সামনে তুলে ধরার কাজে তাদের নিজেদের আর মাঠে নামতে হচ্ছে না। অথচ হাজার হাজার জনসভা করে বা শত শত বই লেখে কি সে কাজটি করা সম্ভব হতো?

আওয়ামী লীগকে স্রেফ নির্বাচনে হারানোর মাঝে দেশের তেমন কল্যান নাই। কারণ তাতে হাসিনা ও তার দল হারলেও ক্যান্সার নির্মূল হতো না। অতীতে দলটি বহুবার হারলেও তার দেশ-ধ্বংসী বিষ বেঁচে আছে। বাংলাদেশের কল্যাণে যা জরুরী তা হলো বাকশালী ফ্যাসিবাদীদের আমূল নির্মূল। এ জন্য নির্বাচন নয়, অপরিহার্য হলো একটি প্রচণ্ড গণবিপ্লব –যা নির্মূল করে ছাড়বে এ ভয়ংকর অপরাধীদের। আর গণবিপ্লবের জন্য জরুরী হলো দেশের প্রতিটি নারী, শিশু, যুবক, যুবতীর মনে শেখ হাসিনার নৃশংস ডাকাত চরিত্রের নগ্ন রূপটিকে গভীর ভারে ক্ষুধিত করা। তবে সে কাজটি অতি প্রবল ভাবেই হয়েছে। এবং বিরোধী দলকে সেটি করতে হয়নি। বিরোধী দলের হাতে সে সামর্থ্যও ছিল না। অথচ শেখ হাসিনা ও তার দলের লোকজনই অতি সুচারু ভাবে এবং প্রবল ভাবে সে কাজটি করে দিয়েছে। এবারের নির্বাচনের এটিই হলো বিশাল পজিটিভ দিক। জনগণ ভোট ডাকাতির এ করুণ স্মৃতি আর কোন কালেই ভুলবে না। বাংলার ইতিহাস থেকেও তা আর কোন দিন হারিয়ে যাবে। জঘন্য অপরাধীদের তো এভাবেই মহান আল্লাহতায়ালা হাজার হাজার বছর বাঁচিয়ে রাখেন। ফিরাউন, নমরুদদের তাই ইতিহাস থেকে তিনি হারিয়ে যেতে দেননি।

এখন বিরোধী দলগুলির  কাজ হলো, জনগণের মনে জমাট বাধা সে গভীর ঘৃণাকে গণবিপ্লবে রূপ দেয়া।  তবে একাজে জনগণের নিজের দায়িত্বটিও কম নয়। দেশ কোন দল বা কোন নেতা-নেত্রীর নয়। দেশ সবার। তাই দেশ থেকে  চোর-ডাকাত তাড়ানোর দায়ভারটিও সবার। তাছাড়া দেশবাসী কতটা চোর-ডাকাত মুক্ত সভ্য পরিবেশে বসবাস করতে চায় সেটির পরিচয় মিলবে তো ডাকাত তাড়ানোর সে লড়াইয়ের মধ্য দিয়ে। পাড়ায় আগুন লাগলে আগুণ তাড়ানোর চেয়ে গুরুত্বপূর্ণ কিছু থাকে না। তেমনি দেশ ডাকাতের দখলে গেলে ডাকাত নির্মূলের চেয়ে গুরুত্বপূর্ণ কিছু থাকে না।

রবীন্দ্রনাথ বলেছিলেন, “হে বিধাতা, সাত কোটি প্রাণীরে রেখেছো বাঙালী করে, মানুষ করোনি।” বাঙালী কতটা মানুষ রূপে বেড়ে উঠেছে এবার সে পরীক্ষা দেয়ার পালা। মুসলিম রূপে দায়িত্বটি তো আরো বেশী।  রাষ্ট্রপ্রধান রূপে যে আসনে বসেছেন খোদ নবীজী সাঃ সে আসনে হাসিনার মত এক ভোট ডাকাতকে মেনে নিলে ও তাকে মাননীয় প্রধানমন্ত্রী বললে কি ঈমান থাকে? দেশ যখন চোর-ডাকাতদের দখলে গিয়েছিল তখন ডাকাত তাড়াতে নিজের কী ভূমিকা ছিল -রোজ হাশরের বিচার দিনে সে প্রশ্ন তো অবশ্যই উঠবে। শত্রুনির্মূলে নবীজী (সাঃ)র শতকরা ৭০ ভাগের বেশী সাহাবা শহীদ হয়েছিলেন। অথচ বাংলাদেশে ক’জন তাদের অর্থ, শ্রম, সময় ও রক্তের কোরবানী দিচ্ছে ইসলামের শত্রু এবং মানবতার শত্রু নির্মূলে? ১০/০১/১৯

 




The Muslims’ Past Glory & the Current Downfall: A Short Review

The victory & the precondition

The history is very revealing to tell how Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la brought victory to a small Army of the believers against a huge Army of the evil forces. The believers’ investment of time, talent, wealth and life in His Way doesn’t work alone; the Almighty Allah’s own investment also comes very quickly to their side. The mighty angels and other blessing of the Almighty Lord descend down to help them. In the past, even tiny birds called ababil turned into precision bombers and the pebbles became destructive shells to decimate King Abraha’s huge contingent of elephants –as narrated in Sura Fil in the holy Qur’an. As a result, the promised victory and glory came to them; and khilafa, sharia, hudud, shura, justice and other basics of Islam could get rightly established in the newly launched Islamic state. Hence it is clear that one can’t be a full Muslim, nor can be the part of the Divine mission by mere participation in rituals like 5 times prayer, fasting in Ramadan, haj or spending money for the poor. Fighting in the way of Almighty Lord must go side by side with these obligatory rituals –as was seen in the early days of Islam. In fact, fighting in His way is the highest act of piety that pleases Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la the most -as mentioned in the holy Qur’an: “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks as if they were a cemented wall.” –(Sura Saf, verse 4).

But today, the Muslims live with a different brand of faith, objective, politics and culture. Their faith doesn’t recognise any deal with Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la; nor does incorporate any fighting in His cause. The government media, the textbooks and the so-called ulama of the Muslim countries are busy to hide those Qur’anic verses from the public eyes. As a result, the basics of Islam like sharia, khilafa, hudud, trans-ethnic Muslim unity and jihad have no place in the lives of the most of the Muslims. The betrayal of the deal is so explicit that fighting in the way of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la has no place in the list of their priorities. Rather they have forged bondage with invading enemies –as evidenced by the presence of thousands of Turkish, Afghan, Albanian and other Muslims in the NATO forces. For certain time, one of the Turkish Generals even hold the position of the commander of the occupying NATO forces in Afghanistan and led the killing of Muslims there.

 

The detachment & the changed priority

The Muslims have grown only in number, but not in iman and good deeds. The Qur’anic text of the transaction with Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la doesn’t work in their heart and mind. Hence, they feel free from any bondage or agreement with the Almighty Lord. Because of such detachment from the Divine Deal, they now live with different priority. They set their priority linked with their family, race, language, tribe, and geographical entity. Agenda of bringing glory to Islam enjoy hardly any place in the new set of the priorities. Because of de-Islamisation of agenda, they do not feel restrained to get closer to the enemies of Islam. Instead, they even become partner in their war of occupation, death and destruction in the Muslim lands. Thus their fake claim of iman get easily exposed. Those who helped the kuffar invasion of Bengal in 1757 and 1971, Middle East in 1917, Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003 were not the idol-worshipping infidels. Rather, they were the fake Muslims who possessed no feeling or respect for the Muslims’ life, honour, interest or independence.  Because of such moral and spiritual death, hundreds of thousands of the Arab, the African and the Indian Muslims fought in the British, French and Italian Armies as mercenary in the 1st and 2nd World Wars. They think, rituals like 5 times prayer, month-long fasting in Ramadan, charity and haj are all about Islam. As if, the holy Qur’an doesn’t give any political guidance vis-à-vis warfare and the selection of friends and foes. As if, they are free to select even the kuffars as friend and fight with them to kill the Muslims. Islam -as was practised by the prophet (peace be upon him) and the early Muslims stands totally foreign to them. As a result, the societies or the states they have built are grossly dissimilar to that of the prophet (peace be upon him). Rather stand very similar to those of the contemporary kuffars: with secularism, nationalism, racism, capitalism and the kuffar law in the heart. Thus, the continuation with the gross deviation from the Qur’anic straight path becomes the norm in the Muslim World. Hence the city life  and culture of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Beirut, Cairo, Istanbul with their pubs, clubs and casino are little different from that of London, Paris, Rome or New York.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       The forgotten benchmark   

The deal with Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la sets the bench mark of a true Muslim. He needs to be a full Muslim not only in name and rituals, but also in faith, dedication and action. Because of fake belief and treacherous acts, even five times prayer behind the prophet (peace be upon him) in prophet’s mosque in Medina couldn’t help the hypocrites to become true Muslim. The word “Muslim” means who fully submits to the revealed wishes, rules, and guidance of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. It is a life-long commitment. Hence, in the time of prophet (peace be upon him), a Muslim was not only a symbol of a humble man engaged in prayer, pilgrimage, charity and other good deeds, but also a model of steadfast fighter against the enemies of Islam.

Every word, every pledge and every declaration of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la in the holy Qur’an has a serious binding on a believer. It doesn’t need any repetition of an order again and again to make any deed obligatory; simple announcement in the Qur’an is enough for that –as has been the case of obligatory rituals like 5 times prayer, fasting in Ramadan, performance of haj and deliverance of charity. To add an extra importance to His pledge, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la has incorporated a word “inna” (means: certainly) in the beginning of the verse 111 of Sura Taubah. To reinforce the pledge further, the Almighty Lord has also invoked the names of three Divine books like Taurat, Injeel and Qur’an in the same verse. Thus the most power deal of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la was made public to the benefit of the true believers.

 

The neglected change-maker

The holy Qur’an worked as the most powerful change maker in Muslim life. But now the Muslims stand disconnected from this powerful engine. Only a single verse of 185, Sura Baqara, made a month-long fasting in Ramadan obligatory; and didn’t need a second verse to emphasize its importance. Similarly, above mentioned single verse of Sura Taubah was enough to bring an overwhelming conceptual shift in the Muslim mind vis-à-vis their role on earth. The pledge of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’ala thus worked as the greatest change-maker in the whole human history. For any societal or civilizational change, such a ground-breaking conceptual shift is indispensable. The earth is not flat, rather round -such a discovery of Copernicus laid the foundation of Europe’s huge political, territorial and material gain and gave Europe a quick global domination. Because, the new concept of a globular shape of earth prompted Cristopher Columbus to navigate westward to find a shorter route to India. While searching a new route for India, he instead discovered America. Thus he opened a gateway to add enormous material splendour to Europe. The Muslims’ glory in the past also owes to such a huge paradigm shift. The holy Qur’an could successfully raise a new conceptual base in the Muslim mind. The new concept brought a ground-breaking revolution vis-à-vis humans’ understanding on the ultimate fate. It reconfirmed the resurrection of every man and woman after the death, the accountability in the hereafter and abode in the paradise or in the hellfire. In the new conceptual premise, the worldly life is viewed only as a short exam period to qualify for the paradise. And an abode in the paradise is considered the greatest achievement in life; and hellfire comes as the punishment.

The new conceptual revolution instilled a new set of priorities in the Muslim mind. Whatever Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la wishes got the topmost importance; and the personal agenda wasn’t given any preference to that. In the deal, Allah Subhana wa Ta’la asks not only to slay His enemies; but also ask to be slain in His way. So the companions of the prophet (peace be upon him) showed an exceptional valour not only to kill the enemies of Islam, but also to embrace martyrdom. Khaled bin Walid was a great hero of Islam; he is recognised as a famous war strategist of exceptional talent. He led Muslim Armies so many times to victory. He could kill numerous enemies, too. But he couldn’t be killed in the cause of Islam; that very point remained a source of his deep frustration in later years. Such a conceptual state of the believers tells a lot about the impact of the Qur’anic deal on the psyche of the early Muslims. Many other verses of the holy Qur’an reinforces the same spirit. For example: “O you who believe! Shall I guide you to a trade that will save you from a painful punishment? (It is that) you believe in Allah and His messenger and do jihad in the way of Allah with your wealth and your lives. That is the best for you if you could know.”-(Sura Saf, verse 10-11). It is also revealed, “Therefore, let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell their worldly life for the hereafter; whoever fights in the way of Allah, then he be slain or be victorious, We shall grant him mighty reward.”-(Sura Nisa, verse 74). Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la also asks the Muslims to examine their own compliance with the Divine decree. Hence they are asked, “And what is (the matter) with you that you fight not in the cause of Allah and (for) the oppressed among men, women and the children who say, “Our Lord, take us out of this city of oppressive people and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself a helper” -(Sura Nisa, verse 74).

 

The deal with Satan!

Islam stands firmly on some fundamental pillars of faith; a Muslim can’t grow up as a true Muslim with compromises on those basics. Any amount of compromise on those basics are not trivial; these are grave sins that reveals detachment from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. The deal with Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la means strong attachment with the Qur’nic roadmap and jihad in His way. The Qur’anic straight path is only one; all other paths are the Satanic deviation. The Qur’anic straight path exists not only in prayers, but also in politics, warfare, trade, education, culture and all other aspects of life. Hence, there is no scope of deviation in any arena of life; deviation means following the Satanic roadmap. Then, the journey starts towards the hell fire.  The political and military pledges with the Satanic forces on earth are indeed the markers of such deviation.

The deviants don’t move alone; rather take other people to the hellfire, too. Hence, in Islam, it is the greatest jihad not only to defend the geographical frontiers of an Islamic state, but also to protect the ideological purity of Islam and save people from Satanic truck. But the Muslims have terribly failed on both the counts. The mission of great prophets like prophet Musa (peace be upon him) and prophet Isa (peace be upon him) collapsed mostly due to ideological corruption of their Divine teachings. Due to such corruption, monotheism of prophet Isa (peace be upon him) turned to polytheism with a deceptive façade of so-called trinity. And sharia –as delivered to prophet Musa (peace be upon him) as Ten Commandments remains captive in the Book of Torah and didn’t receive any chance for implementation.

 

Immunizing against Islam

The Muslims now face the same evil strategy of the same enemy who corrupted the Divine faith of Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) and Prophet Isa (peace be upon him). The several-century-old war of these enemies not only aim at occupying and exploiting the Muslim land, but also at corrupting and dismantling the core elements of Islamic faith. As the colonial occupation got its grip on the Muslim World, the sharia-based judiciary along with the Islamic education was dismantled. The enemy used the whole education system as a tool of immunising people against Islam; hence those who received education in the colonial institutions become the hard core opponents to Islam. They easily became Trojan horses cum political agents of their colonial masters. Because of them, growing up as full Muslim, practising full Islam and implementation of obligatory sharia remained impossible even in the Muslim majority countries.

The colonial occupation has ended long ago. But, the colonial legacy still survives with greater ferocity –as seen in Islamabad (Lal Masjid, July 2007), Dhaka (Shapla Roundabout, Dhaka, May, 2013) and Cairo (Rabaa Al-Adawiya, August, 2013) by the secularised Army’s mass-slaughtering of unarmed Islamists. In fact, the new occupation of Muslim lands under the home-grown de-Islamised Trojan horses now goes unfettered. Hence, under this new occupation, more wine shops, more brothel houses, more casinos, more obscene sea beaches, more interest-based banking, more enforcement of kufr laws and more public shows of vulgarity are visible in the Muslim. On the other hand, basics of Islam like sharia, hudud, shura, Muslim unity, jihad have become invisible. As a result of long kufr indoctrination during the colonial era, most of the Muslims have forgotten the most basic element of iman that entails abiding by the solemn transaction with Allah Sub’han wa Ta’la. Such a binding deal has gone completely to oblivion. As a result, fighting in His way is no more a part of their political, ideological or cultural roadmap. And the very few those who still try to fight in His way have fully forgotten that fighting in His way means fighting for His sharia, hudud, khilafa, justice and trans-ethnic Muslim civilizational state. Such gross derailment from the Qur’anic straight path can only expedite further disaster and downfall.  And the Muslims are indeed in the midst of that. 18/12/2016




The Qur’anic Strategy against the Evil & the Strategy of Treachery of the Muslims

The treachery

The several hundred years’ downhill course of the Muslims hasn’t ended yet. Rather, has gained new speed to take them to a new low. The ongoing deaths, rapes, destruction, occupation, and cleansing of the native Muslims are setting context for further decimation and humiliation of the Ummah. A new generation of Sykes and Picot (Sykes and Picot -the two insiders of the British and the French colonial establishment who drew the current map of the disintegrated Middle East at the time of World War I) are drawing up a new map for further fragmentation of the Muslim heart land to fit into their new imperialistic agenda. Scores of Sharif Hussain (Sharif Hussain: the Ottoman Governor of Hejaz who betrayed the khalifa and worked with the British Army in 1917 to bring colonial occupation that caused creation of Israel and fragmentation of the Middle East) are already working with the new brands of Lawrence of Arabia (Lawrence: a British Army Officer, known for his deceitful role in igniting the Arabs revolt against Osmania khilafa) to prolong the new colonial occupation of the Middle East.

Now, the success of the enemies is so huge that true Islam -as revealed in the holy Qur’an and practised by the holy prophet (peace be upon him) and the early Muslim, exist nowhere in the Muslim World. It is indeed the number one failure of about 1.5 billion Muslims. The failure is so total that one can discover only from history book that sharia, shura, hudud, khilafa, justice based on Qur’anic law, trans-ethnic Muslim brotherhood and jihad in the way of Almighty Allah were the integral part of the golden early days of Islam. It is worth noting that today’s Muslims are little concerned about such missing fundamentals of Islam; rather show violent incongruity cum enmity against any attempt of revival of such obligatory Islamic basics –as Islamists are facing under the secularists’ occupation in many Muslim countries. In such a state of abrogation of sharia, hudud, khilafa, jihad and other basics of Islam, how a Muslim -who has an iota of love for his Almighty Allah can pass a single day or night with mental peace and complacency. Becoming a Muslim means to be an exclusive member of the party of Allah –the Almighty Lord. And it is a total commitment. That implies that he must dedicate his time, energy, money and even life so that His deen (the code of life) prevails over all the different brands of falsehood. Therefore, how can he join the secularist, nationalist, monarchist, socialist or imperialist camps to fight their wars against Islam? But it is the stern reality that there exist hundreds of thousands people in the Muslim World who are working hand in hand with the foreign infidels to fulfil their anti-Muslim agenda. These home-grown Trojan horses are working since the colonial era. The ongoing decline of the Muslim Ummah indeed owes to these inimical insiders.

It is not difficult to understand that a catalogue of causes worked together to bring down the Muslims to the current quagmire. But the root cause is the betrayal of the core agenda of the Muslims’ survival –prescribed by Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la in the holy Qur’an. Here, the crime is huge; it is indeed the ugliest treachery against the greatest transaction that has ever been made by Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la with any people. The text of the transaction comes as follows: “Surely Allah has purchased from the believers their life and their property for this that they shall have the paradise; and they fight in Allah’s way, so that they kill and get killed; a promise which has been binding on Him in the Taurat, and the Injeel and the Qur’an; and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? Therefore, rejoice in the pledge which you have made (with your Lord); and that is the greatest achievement.”–( Sura Taubah, verse 111).

 

The Divine transaction

The value of the above deal can’t be measured in material term. Mountains of gold can’t get near to its worth; its value is invaluable. In the above deal, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la pledges to offer a house in the paradise. A house in the paradise can’t be bought even by trillion tons of gold; can only be earned by full belief in Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and sacrificing the wealth and life in full practice of His deen (the Qur’anic code of life). Thus, has been kept within in the reach of a very poor man. The transaction between Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and the believers worked successfully in the days of the early Muslims; and had the ground breaking impact. As a result, the deal could accomplish the finest and the most remarkable revolution not only Muslims’ personal life but also in the whole human history.

The whole focus of survival of these early Muslims was only to please Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Therefore, they could build the unshakable moral force; and could raise an army of the death-defying people to fight the evil forces. Their success was huge. Not only they could eradicate the evil forces from a large part of the world, but also could raise the finest civilisation on earth. Changing people’s faith, culture, ideology and the life style is the most formidable task in any segment of history; even cow, snake or idle worshiping paganism causes more intense and more durable addiction than the strong narcotics.

There is no substitute of a powerful fighting force. Without such a strong force, even the best man on earth and his most truthful ideology can’t get any place on earth. In fact, in absence of such a force, the great messengers like Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him), Prophet Musa (peace be upon him), and Prophet Issa (peace be upon him) couldn’t prevail over the contemporary evil forces. Whereas, the most evil ideologies of the human history like colonialism, imperialism, nationalism, racism, fascism, communism and paganism could make history of long-lasting successes because of strong army. In such context, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) set an exemplary example how to raise an army to serve the cause of the divine Truth and defeat the evil forces. Which is why he stands as the best model for the mankind in all aged.

 

The Islamic strategy

The followers of the wicked ideologies never give any space for Islam. The history is full of such wickedness. In order to eradicate these horrendous criminals, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’al has His own strategy. He wants to cut the roots of these evil mongers not by the angels but by the hands of those who join His Army of the believers. The holy Qur’an is very explicit on this issue. To execute that strategy, Jihad in His Way thus gets obligatory on all believers. Such a strategy has been repeatedly mentioned in the holy Qur’an.  And for raising such a Divine Army, the deal between Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and the believer –as revealed in Sura Taubah, indeed works as a recruitment tool. Whoever fulfils the deal, gets the promised key for the paradise. Since no man or woman has ever seen the paradise, it is beyond humans’ ability to make a genuine guess on the gain of a believer in the transaction. It is an exclusive domain of All-Knowing Allah Sub’hana wa Tala; and the All-Knowing Lord describes it as the greatest achievement for a believer. The gain is so huge that Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la asks every deal-making believer to celebrate it. The above verse thus makes a ground-breaking impact on the conceptual premise of a true believer. It creates a tremendous moral cum spiritual force in him; could even make him a moving missile into the thick of an enemy army. Since his life and wealth are already sold-out to his Almighty Lord, a Muslim has nothing to lose in jihad; rather gets a chance to win a huge world of plenitude both here and in the hereafter. Thus the deal works as a powerful incentive to drive him directly into the paradise. This is why only three thousands Muslims could face more than one hundred thousand Roman soldiers in the battle of Mutah. And only 17 Muslim soldiers could free the huge state of Bengal from the kuffar occupation in the early year of thirteenth century.

Humans are always moved and motivated by the prospect of better gains. Such a core element of human character is not unknown to the All-Knowing Creator. If a man is given a salary of 20 million instead of 20 thousands, then the most powerful incentive comes to his heart. His devotion, dedication and love for doing the job get sky high. He will do everything to please his paymaster. Every quality moment of his life, every best bit of his talent and every skill under his possession will be invested to improve the performance. In fact, all of his physical, intellectual and professional abilities will be deployed to please his employer. He will not leave the job at his work station; rather will carry it in his head even while he is in the living room, bedroom or in the kitchen. Even while walking in the street or driving the car or taking food and drinks, the same thought that how to excel in doing the job works in his mind. If needed, he will not hesitate to sacrifice even his life. Even for a salary of few hundred pounds, thousands of Arab, African and Indian mercenaries fought bloody wars and even sacrificed their lives for their British, French or Italian colonial masters -especially in the two World Wars. Due to such human nature, culture of mercenarism flourished even in the Muslim lands. Even now, hundreds of thousands of so-called Muslims work as mercenaries to sustain the enemy occupation in the Muslim lands.

 

The compliance & the glory

The Muslims attained the highest glory in the whole history. But such glory didn’t descends on them from the sky like manna and salwa. It is indeed the reward of full compliance with the deal that Allah Sub’hana wa ta’la made with the believers. They will receive more reward in the hereafter. The worth of the deal can’t be measured by trillions of dollars or mountains of gold; one can’t put any value on the heavenly gain. It is invaluable. A drop of water can be compared with the water of all the seas and the oceans; because, both are finite. But one can’t make a comparison between the worldly gains with the gains in the hereafter. Since the gain in the hereafter is infinite, no amount of worldly achievement is comparable to that. One can’t be a true Muslim with an iota of doubt about the truthfulness of the transaction. Since fighting in the way of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la is the part of the deal, fighting spirit in His cause comes spontaneously in Muslims’ life as the part of faith; and jihad becomes an integral part of the Muslim culture. This is why one can’t find a single companion of the prophet (peace be upon him) who didn’t take part in war against the enemies. Of those who were not physically disable, the participation in jihad was 100 per cent; and more than 70 per cent of them became shaheed. The prophet (peace be upon him) himself led 27 wars and he was badly wounded, too.

Jihad was such an integral part of the early Muslims’ life that it stood as the common marker to identify the munafiqs from the true Muslims. The prophet (peace be upon him) too, gave clear directives to know the munafiqs. According to the prophetic narrative, even a claimant of faith in Islam is a munafiq if he hasn’t taken part in jihad in the past and doesn’t intend to do so in the future. Mere belief in Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la can’t generate such a paradigm shift and the sacrificing spirit; even the kuffars of the Arabia had belief in Almighty Allah. Abdullah (meaning: slave of Allah) was the popular name even before the birth of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Even, his father’s name was Abdullah. Today, one and half billion Muslims believe in Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la too. But they couldn’t be the fighting force for Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. On the contrary, they embraced and fought for the political, ideological and cultural concepts of the kuffars. As a result, nationalism, secularism, fascism, capitalism, monarchism and other kuffar ideologies could get the victory in the Muslim majority countries and Islam stands badly defeated. Their iman didn’t go deeper and utterly failed to make any paradigm shift or conceptual change. It is indeed the robust reflection of their disbelief in the transaction with Allah Sub’han wa Ta’la. What could be worst strategy of treachery against the Qur’anic transaction?

 




The Muslims’ Collaboration with the Enemies

The most important issue

Fully aligning with the wish of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la is the most important issue in Muslim’s life. For that, it is crucial to have the Qur’anic knowledge. Otherwise, how one can know the wish of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and the revealed methodology of alignment? In fact, the holy Qur’an is the only source to know the Almighty Lord’s expressed wish, expectation and strategies. Hence, with inadequacies of the Quranic knowledge, the congruence with His mission is impossible. With ignorance, one can align only with the agenda of the enemies. It works as a tool in the hands of Shaitan. So, learning Qur’an was made obligatory on the day one of revelation of al-Qur’an. Five times prayer, month-long fasting in Ramadan and haj were made obligatory more than a decade later.

In those days of Islam, the countries like Egypt, Sudan, Iraq, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania and many others didn’t have the Arabic language as the mother tongue. Only for knowing the Supreme Lord’s message and to align with His mission, they ignored their mother tongue and took the language of Qur’an as their beloved language. So, the Muslims of those formerly non-Arab countries could merge with the great civilizational march of Islam. This could only happen because of their intense desire to be fully congruent and merged with the mission of Allah Su’hana wa Ta’la. But today’s Muslims are known for deeper incongruence with the fundamentals of Islam. It owes mostly to their gross inadequacies of Qur’anic knowledge. They can take part in 5 time prayers, fasting, haj and other rituals, but can’t align with the prophet’s (peace be upon him) mission.

Even an ignorant man can keep fasting, do prayers and give charity. But to develop the level of motivation for taking part in a life-long jihad in the way of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and to receive the honour of a martyr in His way needs much deeper enlightenment with the Qur’anic knowledge. It is a massive prophetic job. Islam could generate such people in significant numbers only after the full Islamisation of the state and its institution. Living in an enemy-led corruptive educational, cultural and ideological environment, it is extremely difficult to attain such a depth of enlightenment. Thus the kuffar occupation commits the most catastrophic crime against the mankind. Hence, what else could be the best rewarding deed (amalus saleh) than releasing the people from such shackles of this evil occupation? It amounts to opening the road to haven and obstructing the way towards hellfire. The early Muslims realised its importance fully; therefore left their homes and crossed mountains, rivers, seas and extremely harsh deserts and become shaheed in the distant warfronts to end such occupation. But, today’s Muslims are failing to end the enemy occupation even in the own homeland! This is indeed the difference between the two distinctive brands of the Muslims.

 

Punishment & blessing: the Divine strategy

Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la has His own revealed strategy vis-à-vis giving prize cum victory to the believers and punishing those who stand against Islam. Almighty Allah could crush the power of Arab kuffars by sending some angels or earthquakes; but that was not His strategy. He asked Prophet Muhamad (peace be upon him) to raise an army of the believers to do the job. Hence, the believers are ordered, “Fight them; (as it is the strategy that) Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and (this way He will) satisfy the hearts of the believing people.” –(Sura Taubah, verse 14). So, victory doesn’t come by mere supplication or prayers; the believers must engage in war and present sacrifices to achieve that. Hence, if there exists no fighting Army for Islam, there is no victory of Islam either. Then, the Muslims stand defeated and humiliated –as is the case of the Muslims today. Only with serious engagement in war against the enemies, the believers qualify for a genuine help from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Such a strategy has been repeatedly revealed in the holy Qur’an. So it comes, “Allah intends to establish the Truth by His words and to cut off the roots of the unbelievers. That He should establish the Truth and abolish the falsehood, even if the criminals disliked it.” –(Sura Anfal, verse 7-8). So, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la loves to cut off the roots of the wicked unbelievers; but it should happen by the hand of the believers. The angels are only to play a supportive role -if needs arise in the battle field. And whoever does the job that Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la likes the most, gets His love, too. And whoever gets His love, he definitely gets a place in paradise. Such a solemn principle of Almighty Lord still operates to punish His enemies; but today’s Muslims utterly failed to be the part of that. Instead, many of them live in the fantasy world that their supplication will do the job.

 

Intoxication & the missing tool of purification

People need an effective tool for the purification of their souls and the community. For Muslims, it is jihad. It works as a filter to keep the garbage out of the Muslim body polity. If the tool of purification stops working, the people get impregnated with the toxic waste. A man can’t survive an obstructive gut that stop eliminating the excreta out of the body. The same is true with the Muslim ummah. The downfall of the Muslims indeed owes largely to absence of such a purifying tool. Even in prophet’s (peace be upon him) time, the dischargeable waste in the ummah was huge. At the time of Ohud expedition, it was about 30 per cent of the Muslim community. The rough estimate comes from the figure of 300 who departed from an army of 1000 at the starting point of the war rally. They are called munafiq –the worse and most damaging elements than the kuffars. Thus, jihad at Ohud helped the Muslim ummah to eliminate these harmful waste out of their body. As a result, the ummah stayed healthy. Now the ummah stands huge -mostly because of accumulation of the harmful waste. The great number hasn’t increased the real strength, rather caused more weakness.

Jihad as a tool of purification has been emphasised by the All-knowing Almighty. It is revealed, “And that He may purify (through jihad) those who believe and deprive the unbelievers of the blessings,” –Sura Al-Imran, verse 141). Such a Divine tool of purification stopped working for many centuries in the Muslim ummah, hence the most harmful waste still stay inside. They even control the ummah’s destiny. As a consequence, the moral, the political, and the cultural entity of the Ummah show symptoms of sever ideological cum conceptual intoxication. Amidst such toxicity, the true Islam of prophet’s (peace be upon him) time has died long ago. Islam with its indispensable components like sharia, hudud, khilafa, shura, judiciary, jihad and Islamic state can be found only in the history books, not in any part of the Muslim World.

An intoxicated man can’t behave or work normally. He can’t be a true Muslim either. They lose the common sense. Under the spell of such intoxication, even the perfect jihad looks terrorism; a genuine war of liberation against the occupation looks crime. Such intoxicated men even embrace the worst enemies as friends and kill the best mujahid as enemy. This is the reason that those who occupied Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq and killed millions of men, women and children and bombed many cities to rubbles, get friends who celebrate their occupation in the Muslim lands -as was seen in Baghdad in 2003. With more occupation, the intoxication gets more intense. The intoxicated Arabs thus invest trillions of petrodollars to enrich the enemy banks and the enemy companies in the west. The enemies want that the Muslims must live with the current level of intoxication; because, they know it is easy to rob and rule the intoxicated people. With the same objective, the British colonialists spread opium freely among the Chinese. But the ideological intoxication is more lasting and more incapacitating than opium. Moreover, opium can’t make people friendly or mercenary, but the corruptive ideologies do. Jihad is the sole and the most powerful antidote to fight against such intoxication. This is why they are deadly against jihad. Hence, it is their key policy that jihad must not be allowed to work in any of Muslim countries.

 

Test, strength and the failure

Islam didn’t reach its golden days by mere 5 times prayer, fasting, haj and other rituals. Hundred times more people perform such rituals now. To emerge as the number one World Power, it indeed needed huge strength to eradicate the deep-rooted kuffar occupation from a vast area of Asia, Africa and Europe. What is the source of such strength? It is true that every victory comes as a blessing from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. But such blessing doesn’t come to a people until they fulfil the precondition. The precondition is nothing else but the believers’ best investment in His cause. Almighty Lord never helps those who doesn’t help themselves. Hence, it is the believers’ investment in jihad that brings down the promised blessing from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. In fact, it is an embedded test in Islam that come to every Muslim’s life. A long-term lack of victory and the continued downfall are the indicators that the Muslims are continuously failing the test. Thus, they are continuously failing to qualify for the blessing, too.

A test always initiates a value-adding process that adds strengths and perfection to the participants. As a result, more tests bring more perfection. This is why, no school or institution can achieve any progress without tests. Likewise, the Muslim ummah can’t attain any moral progress without an inbuilt process of continuous testing either. In fact, in its absence, the ummah quickly degenerates and turns weaker. The current state of the Muslims is a testimony to that. In the early days of Islam, jihad –the continuous test in Muslims’ life, did the most remarkable job to add enormous moral strength to the Muslim ummah. They lost large number of their best men in jihad; but that didn’t make them weaker. In fact, the weakness and the downfall started when they withdrew from jihad. Such cowardice withdrawal could save them from dying in warfronts; but brought destruction and genocidal massacres in their cities and villages –as happened in Spain, Palestine, Balkans, Chechnya, Iraq, Kashmir, Syria and now Arakan.

The paradise doesn’t give any entry to those who avoids or fails the test that happens in the field of jihad. In jihad, the Almighty Lord testifies the level of true belief and picks up the true martyrs. The fake ones get filtered out from the body of true believers. War in the way of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la thus plays a crucial role to purify the community of the believers. It can’t happen in an assembly in a mosque or in the congregation of Arafat. Jihad comes with a huge life and death issue; it shakes people’s heart like earthquakes. The early believers were shaken, too. Those who withstand such terrible shakes in the way of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and challenge the enemies get the pass mark for the paradise. So, it is revealed, “A calamity has afflicted you (at Ohud), similar calamity like it already afflicted the unbelieving people; We bring these days to men by turns, and (so that) Allah may know those who believe and may select from you the martyrs; and Allah doesn’t like the wrongdoers. And (so that), Allah may purify the believers (through such trials) and destroy the disbelievers.” It is also revealed, “Or do you think that you will enter paradise while Allah hasn’t make it evident those of you who fight in His cause and made evident those who are steadfast.” –(Sura al-Imran, verse 142).

In any exam, one needs to know the pass mark; and needs to be focused to achieve that. Likewise, a believer must know the pass mark for getting an entry to the paradise. It is not a hidden issue in Islam. In the above verse and also in many other verses of the holy Qur’an, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la made it clear about the required pass mark. Performing the rituals like 5 times prayers, fasting, haj and giving charity are very important, but not mentioned here. The key issue goes much deeper. It is indeed the full alignment with His revealed agenda. It is the ever-readiness to stand as His soldier to fulfil the agenda. But where is the Muslims’ success to meet this criteria? A munafiq can also perform the religious rituals -as munafiq leader Abdullah bin Ubai and his followers could do even behind the prophet (peace be upon him) in Medina. But they can’t align with the vision, mission and agenda of the Almighty Lord. As a result they can’t go to jihad. Those who have already aligned with the USA and Russia-led international coalition of the imperialists, monarchists, nationalists, secularists and other despots to stop Islam’s resurgence, can they align with Islam? Are they better than Abdullah bin Ubai –the munafiq leader and his comrades? 




Evils of Enemy Occupation in the Muslim World

The evils of kuffar occupation

Every occupation has its terrible calamities. These are much worse than the effects of a disease on the physical health. A disease affects only the body. It doesn’t damage the spiritual entity; neither does harm the infinite life in the hereafter. But the kuffar-occupation of a country damages the moral, the spiritual and the intellectual wellbeing of the common man and woman. (Note: the term kafir and kuffar are the jargons used by Allah Sub’hana Ta’la again and again in the holy Qur’an to describe the deniers and the enemies of Islam, hence used in this article to show deep respect to this Divine description). Oppression, political subjugation and economic exploitation are not the only evils of the occupiers; their crimes are much nastier and much disastrous. Finding the Divine Truth and following the Divine straight path are made almost impossible. In order to escape the calamities of Kuffar occupation, the great people like Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him), Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and many other Truth-seeking people had to leave their own birth places.

Along with obstructing the Divine straight path, the occupying forces construct massive educational, cultural and administrative infrastructure of derailment towards the hellfire. Such projects of derailment are not hidden, rather robustly and seductively displayed not only in the kuffar World but also in the Muslim World. Hence, even in the Muslim majority countries, those who oppose the fundamental basics of Islam like sharia, khelafa, hudud, shura, jihad and establishment of a fully Islamic state are not exclusively the foreign or native kuffars; the most formidable enemies of Islam appeared to be those who are the ideological cum cultural converts raised by educational institutions built by the kuffar occupiers. With such massive ideological cum cultural conversion to non-Islam, can any people deserve any blessing from the Almighty Lord? It can only bring down the Divine punishment. Losing to the invading infidels thus proved to be no less catastrophic than losing directly to the Devil. In fact, the Muslims now suffer the consequences of such evil occupation all over the Muslim World. It has added new momentum to the Muslims’ downfall. Even in the Muslim countries, the Muslims now face restriction not only in practising full Islam, but also face the terrible danger of being drawn towards the hellfire. The non-Islamic states with their manoeuvring laws, politics, education, administration, culture and other institutions, in fact, are in fact doing the heinous job of the Devil.

Hence, fighting such enemy occupation is a crucial issue in Islam. It is crucial not only to save Muslim lands from foreign exploitation, but to save the premise of Islamic faith, ideology and culture from Devilish corruption. There exists no doubt in the Islamic purity and sanctity of such jihad. Taking part in such a war is not an option, but an obligation on every physically fit believer. In fact, it is the indispensable part of the Muslims’ faith that asks every believer to be ever-ready to encounter any kuffar invasion. So, the direct command of Allah Sub’han wa Ta’la comes to every believer: “Hence, make ready against them (the enemy of Islam) whatever force and horses of war you are able to muster, so that you terrify the enemy of  Allah and also your own enemy and others besides them of whom you do not know, but Allah knows. And whatever (wealth, efforts and life) you spend in the cause of Allah will be repaid to you in full; and you will not be wronged.”–(Sura Anfal, verse 60).

 

Cowardice surrender and the destruction: the new normal

In Islam, it is haram to well-come any enemy on the frontier. It is haram to stand non-combative in front of any kuffar invasion. Iman of a true believer shows its instant expression through resistance in all possible means. In the early days of Islam, embracing Islam always meant to have full readiness for war against any enemy attack. Hence, calling people to Islamic faith and prayers wasn’t the only duty of the last prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam; rather, encouraging the believers to take part in a full war against the enemies was also an important part of his mission. The prophet (peace be upon him) was commanded to do so by his Almighty Lord; as it is revealed, “O prophet! Urge the believers to war.” –(Sura Anfal, verse 65). Therefore, calling people to Islam and asking them to perform prayers are not the only issues in Islam. How to fight the enemies also stands as a part of the Qur’anic guidance. Amidst war-mongering enemies, acquiring military skills, collecting weapons and engaging in war are not any luxury, rather important parts of the survival strategies. The prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) himself acquired such skills. He played the role of the Commander in Chief in the war front. Which is why, he made the distinctive difference from other great people of the human history; unlike them, he could implement what he preached. Today, such Qur’anic decree on jihad and the prophetic (peace be upon him) tradition of war engagement receive little importance in the Muslims’ life. Rather, welcoming and supporting occupation by the internal and external enemies of Islam has been a new normal in the Muslim World. Even the so-called ulama are not any exception from such cowardice practice. As a result, the enemies of Islam –both external and internal, faced little resistance in continuing their most corruptive and coercive occupation; moreover, got emboldened to dismantle sharia, hudud, khilafa, Islamic judiciary and many other fundamental teachings of Islam even in predominantly Muslim lands. So the downfall of the Muslims continues.

The Muslims have increased only in number, but not in honour, strength and dignity. They are now being defeated, subjugated, raped and slaughtered in many parts of the Muslim World. Their cities and villages are being bombed to rubbles one after another. The sufferings have been so much unbearable that the Syrians Muslims are dying in the Mediterranean and the Rohinga Muslims are dying in the Bay of Bengal in their desperate move to flee from their ancestral homes. This is the most disgraceful shame for 1.5 billion Muslims now living in the world. Their collective conscience shows little sign that they still possess any moral sense to feel the most despicable shame as shame. The number of Muslims now live only in one district of Bangladesh, Caliph Omar didn’t have such a population in his whole state. But he could defeat the two contemporary World Powers.

The prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) predicted about such an awful state of the ummah about 14 hundred years ago. He also told about the causes of such a catastrophic fate: it is the love for this worldly life (hubbud duniah) and the dislike for the death (kerahatul maut) in the way of Allah Sub’han wa Ta’la. Addictive love for this transient worldly life has caused them forget the infinite life in the hereafter. Hence, martyrdom in His way that opens the door of paradise is hateful to them. Amidst such overwhelming cowardice and surrender to enemies, those who pursue the path of martyrdom to fight the kuffar occupation don’t receive even the recognition for their deep faith and self-sacrificing sincerity. Like the kuffars, they also label them as fanatic, extremist and even deviant from true Islam. As if, there is no place of war against kuffar occupation in Islam! As if, there is no martyrdom or shahada in Islam! As if, those early Muslims who fought and became shaheed to eradicate the kuffar occupation over the vast land of Asia and Africa were also fanatic or extremist! Such a conceptual perversion is the legacy of colonial as well as secularist occupation of the Muslim World. Now it is the common agenda of the USA and Russia-led enemies of Islam that the Muslims must survive with such perversion; and they shouldn’t be give any chance to return to the original Islam that was preached by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Most of the secularist, monarchist, nationalist and despotic rulers of the Muslim world have already aligned with such an enemy agenda. As a result, the Muslims are given no choice apart from continuing with the downhill course.

 

The calamity of disconnection

The Muslims get dignity, honour and victory as the blessing from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Such blessing comes only as a gift for full integration with His agenda. In this regard, the early Muslims made a history. They are known for active alignment with the wish and strategy of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. But today, the Muslims made another history; this is the history of total disconnection from the early heroes and their road map. They are connected only with their personal, national, racial or tribal agenda. Such disconnection form its roots has its own calamity. As a result, they are making a history completely different from the early Muslims. It is the history of moving far away from the Qur’anic straight path and bringing defeat, deaths and disgrace for the Muslim ummah. A servant receives the highest appreciation from his master and he becomes his closest friend if he invests all of his abilities, time and even life to fulfil his master’s dearest desire. That was indeed the exact strategy of the early Muslims. As a result, they got Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la as their closest wali (friend); and also received a promise for a place in paradise. Even against the strongest enemy, they were given the crushing victory; thousands of angels came down in their rank to fight alongside them. The commitment of these early Muslims was so deep that the majority of them died in the war fields. They were passionate not only in prayers, but also in wars. A Muslim household in those days, use to possess not only prayer mats, robes and rosaries, but also the best weapons and logistics appropriate for a war. The per capita weapons was the highest in the Muslim land. As a result, Islam could quickly prevail over a large part of the world. Their faith, patience and sacrifices pleased Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and His prophet (peace be upon him) so much that they were described as the best people on earth.

Since the early Muslims were mentored by the greatest prophet (peace be upon him), they work as the perfect model of a true believer for all ages to come. They showed, how a Muslim needs to be fully aligned with the revealed wish, objectives and strategies of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. In fact, this is the only way to get nearer to Him. On the contrary, by aligning with colonialists, imperialists, secularists, nationalists, fascists, monarchists, and other enemies of Islam, one achieves exactly the opposite. He gets nearer to Devil and receives wrath of the Almighty Lord. Such political, ideological and cultural alignment with the kuffars take people only to hellfire through the same route of deviation that their non-Muslim comrades follow. The whole Muslim World is rife with such Devilish alignment. This is a clear marker of their deviation from the straight path. Five times prayer, month-long fasting, haj and charity may give false hope and deceitful self-satisfaction on their religiosity; but their alignment with the kuffars and deviation from prophet’s Islam will not help them receive the forgiveness from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. The Almighty Lord never likes that a Muslim should be aligned with His enemies who oppose practice of sharia, hudud, khilafa, jihad and other basics of Islam in His Own land. But the Muslims’ problem is not confined within such alignment with the enemies, it has gone far beyond. The enemies who declared Crusade against Islam -as announced by the US President George W. Brush while invading Iraq in 2003, are invited inside the Muslim lands to establish their military bases. This is the case with Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Turkey and Afghanistan. These bases are used as launching pads for further mission of killing and occupation inside the Muslim World. With such capitulation to the enemy, how the Muslims can expect any blessings from their Almighty Lord?




The Assigned Role and the Muslims’ Betrayal

The betrayal of the objective                              

The early Muslims gained unprecedented successes. Their success were not confined in war fronts or civilisation-building. They achieved successes almost in all fields. They could add record speed to the spread of Islam. They made Muslims the most reckoned World Power within decades. They raised higher values, established rule of law and promoted equality between all races, colours and ethnicities. Today’s Muslims are making history, too. But, it is the history of decadence, defeats and enemy occupation. Why such an awful contrast between two brands of the people who claim to be the believers of the same Creator, the same prophet (peace be upon him) and the same Qur’an? The failures of today’s Muslims do not owe to any climate or environmental change or any disaster. It is due to their full blown betrayal of the objective of the creation. They also made the ugliest betrayal of the highest blessing of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la -the holy Qur’an by ignoring its teachings. The path they follow in politics, statecraft, warfare, culture, judiciary, education is far away from the Qur’anic roadmap; and rather mimic that of the kuffars. (Note: the term kafir and kuffar are the vocabularies used by Allah Sub’hana Ta’la again and again in the holy Qur’an to describe the deniers and the enemies of Islam, hence these jargons are used in this article to align with this Divine description). Such betrayals of the objective and such deviation from the straight path (sirataul mustaqeem) are indeed the gravest crimes against the All-Powerful Creator. Other crimes are indeed the offshoots of these major crimes.

Humans are created not for the sake of creation. They were give a role. The Almighty Lord has His specific agenda in raising this best and the most intelligent creation on earth. All the Divine Books and the prophets are very explicit on it. Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la’s narrative on His objective comes as follows: “And I did not create the jinn and the mankind except that they should do ibadah unto me.”–(Surah adh-Dhariyat, verse 56). It is indeed the most pivotal revelation from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. It prefixes the role of every man and woman in every arena on earth. It gives an unequivocal signal to every human that he must set his own agenda only to fulfil the agenda of his Supreme Lord. Such congruence of his own objective with the objective of his Almighty Lord is vital for his success both in this world and in the hereafter. This is the only way to save one’s life from the hellfire. It is so important that thousands of messengers were sent and the Divine Books are revealed to help people understand this most crucial issue in life. Nothing is more important in education, culture, politics or spirituality of people than understanding this revealed agenda of the Almighty Lord. Hence, the greatest crime of the kuffar occupation is not its economic exploitation, subjugation or oppression, but driving people away from the assigned agenda of the survival and forcing on them a project that takes them to the hellfire. This is indeed the greatest crime of a non-Islamic state. The kuffar colonial occupation has ended, but the secularist occupation all over the Muslim World is committing the same crime by continuation of the same colonial legacy.

In the above verse, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la didn’t assign any religious rituals like five times prayer, month long fasting, haj or charity as the prime agenda of life. It is ibadah; hence the verb “le’yabudun” has been used. The word ibadah isn’t mere worship in the form of some rituals; it has much deeper and wider connotation. At the time of revelation of the holy Qur’an, the terms ibadah, abd or ubudiah were not unknown in the contemporary Arabic language; hence the meanings must be understood how they were used and understood by the contemporary Arabs. The word abd means slave; and ibadah or ubudiah mean slavery. Hence the word ibadah gives a defining role to every man. It is indeed a way of life that gives a sense of complete servitude to the Supreme Master. In those days, ibadah or slavery was not a part-time role of a slave; nor was any duty confined within a certain premise with specific job description. It was indeed an all-time lifelong assignment.

The most catastrophic ignorance of the humans is not the ignorance of science and technology, nor even illiteracy. It is indeed the knowledge of his Creator’s objective vis-a-vis his creation. The greatest wisdom in human life indeed builds up on this knowledge. Ignorance on science or technology will not harm anyone in the hereafter; but ignorance of his Lord’s objective regarding his creation will definitely take him to the hellfire. Because, such ignorance leads him to live a life totally incongruent with his Lord’s objective. How can one make any action plan for his life with such ignorance? A man exhibits his greatest ignorance and commits the greatest sin by committing betrayal of the Divine objective. Such betrayal is indeed the ugliest and the most fundamental crime of every kafir; it breeds numerous other crimes, too. Then, all of his wealth, abilities and talent become tools for doing more crimes on earth and make him fit only for the hellfire. So, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la says, “It is the kuffar (the disbelievers) who are the zalim (wrongdoers)”–(Surah al-Baqara, verse 254). In the early days of Islam, the Muslims didn’t have any college or university, but could successfully eradicate such ignorance from Muslims’ mind. That worked as a master key to open the door of success both here and the hereafter. Such knowledge prompted them to invest their wealth and ability –even life, in the fulfilment of the Divine objective.

 

A Muslim’s slavery

A true Muslim is known for his slavery (ubudiah) for Almighty Allah Sub’hana wa T’ala. A kafir is known for his rebellion. Here, the rebellion is against Almighty Allah’s prescribed code of life. Hence, to understand Islam one needs to understand slavery in the context of the contemporary Arabs who practised it while the holy Qur’an was being revealed to them. Since the Arab men and women were familiar with the norm of slavery, they didn’t find any difficulty to understand the implication of the Qur’anic vocabularies like ibadah, a’bed and ubudiah. In those days, a slave didn’t possess any right to have his own wish or agenda; used to be an exclusive tool of his master to execute his agenda. In slavery, slave’s own life and family stay irrelevant, he lives a life only to please his master. He had to take his master’s friend as his own friend and his enemy as his own enemy. He had to fight a war and sacrifice his life only for his master’s cause. The master possessed the right to punish and even kill his slaves without any accountability to anyone.

Islam abolished slavery of a man for another; but established slavery as ibadah exclusively for Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’al. Those who accept such slavery (ubudiah) are called Muslim. In those days, one could buy slaves by paying money only to the slave-owner. The slaves didn’t receive any share in the transaction; and never considered a beneficiary of the deal. Like a commodity, used to be handed over from one owner to another. But, Islam introduced new ethics of universal equality; made all men and women the equal slave of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Hence, none was made owner of another. The Almighty Lord makes the direct transaction with His slaves, hence becomes the beneficiary of the deal. For a role as a faithful and humble slave of the Almighty, a Muslim gets a place in the paradise for an infinite life. It is the greatest deal that a man can think of. No one can buy it; and gains only as a reward. The whole earth full of gold can’t match its worth -as revealed in the holy Qur’an: “Surely, those who disbelieve and die while they are unbelievers, the earth full of gold shall not be accepted from one of them, even if he offer to ransom himself with it. –(Sura al-Imran, verse 91).

The Qur’anic text of the ground-breaking transaction between a believer and his Lord comes in surah at-Taubah, in verse 111. As per transaction, a believer needs to perform his role to get the promised reward from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. The rule of engagement is made clear and simple. More a believer invests in His way, more he receives as the reward. He receives the highest rank as a martyr if sacrifices his life in His Cause; and the victory comes to such believers as a bye-product. Today, such slavery for Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la seldom exists in Muslims’ life. Rather, they show rebellion against Him. And the old form of slavery has returned in a new form with new masters. They have turned slaves of their own whims. The absence of sharia, hudud, khelafa, shura, the Muslim unity and jihad in Muslim country tells a lot about such rebellion. Instead, they show full alignment with the kuffars. The corruptive state and its institutions, the riba-based banking, the non-sharia laws, the prostitution as legalised trade and the coalition with the kuffar in war against Islam are indeed the markers of such alignment. They recite the Divine law (sharia), but these laws have no place in their daily life. Thus, they stand distinctively different from the early Muslims; and follow a path altogether different from them.

A man needs Divine blessing for his ultimate success. But to qualify for such blessing, one needs to follow the revealed roadmap in every step of his life and avoid every deviation. A Muslim –like the early Muslims, must excel in his compliance. And it needs to be holistic. Hence a Muslim must not limit his religious practices within the religious rituals like five times prayer, month-long fasting in Ramadan, haj and charity. His politics, education, culture, law, judiciary, warfare and all other segments of life too, must fall in line with the Qur’anic guidance. It is indeed the believers’ slavery. But today, the Muslims made history in deviation. Instead of compliance with the holy Qur’an, they show sheer rebellion. They are more focused on worldly gains and stand far away from the Quranic straight path.

 

A class of neo-donkeys

Today, the Muslims are known for failures in almost all fields. Whereas, they are given the roadmap for sure success. They are also given the largest treasure of unearned wealth on earth that worth hundreds of trillions of dollars. These are the oil, gas, solar energy and other resources. The Muslims didn’t invest even a single day or the slightest effort to produce such huge asset. But today, the Muslims terribly failed to draw any benefit from such enormous Divine gift. They still stand as the most defenceless, the most defeated and the most humiliated people on earth. Their countries are occupied, the cities are bombed to rubbles, millions of Muslim men and women and children are either killed or stay evicted from their homes and now wander as the vagabond refugees in the streets of foreign lands! Their failure can only be compared with that of the people of Israel. The unearned wealth of the Muslims can be compared with manna and sal’wa –the unearned food staff that came down from the sky to feed several hundred thousands of the Israeli people during their 40 years’ stay in the desert of Sinai Peninsula where they had nothing to eat and drink. But such blessing didn’t help the people of Israeli tribes to enhance their servitude or gratitude to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la; rather increased their deviation, greed and arrogance. Their deviation from the Divine Truth went so far that they started worshipping a self-made statue of a cow –while they were still surviving on manna and salwa from the sky. Today, the failure of the Muslims to use the unearned wealth for moral, educational, spiritual and economic wellbeing of the people is also catastrophic. It is very calamitous that they fail even in using the legal (sharia) and the punitive (hudud) prescription of Almighty Allah –as revealed in the holy Qur’an.

The sharia law and hudud are not the simple gifts of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’ala. These are indeed the greatest blessings of the Almighty Allah for the mankind. Sharia was given to the great prophet Musa (peace be upon him) in Torah. Another great messenger Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) also came to the world to revive the same sharia that was revealed to Prophet Musa (peace be upon him). But both the Jews and Christians have fully ignored the teachings of these two great prophets; as a result, the sharia law revealed in Torah stay fully abandoned. The sharia and hudud were finally revealed to the last prophet of Islam Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in the holy Qur’an. Such laws are more important than any foods, drinks or any other material endowments. Foods and drinks are given even to the animals. But that do not add any civility and moral highness to the animals.  Many of the kuffars also receive a lot of foods, drinks and material endowments. But that do not help them either.

Law of a country is the most authentic marker of wisdom, sagacity and moral highness of a people; not any tower, pyramid, or scientific achievement. Even the worst people on earth could achieve a lot of wonders in the past. In the court of Almighty Allah, these will have no value. The people who are morally low and indulge in racism, nationalism, colonialism, imperialism, fascism, paganism and other wickedness are exactly known by their immoral laws. All kuffars indeed showed such moral, spiritual and conceptual disabilities in all ages. So, they could convict the greatest people of the history like 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 others as criminal; and did everything to kill them. Those old kuffars died; but their legacy still thrives. So, the enmity against Islam’s roadmap still continues. This is why, the self-sacrificing Islamists who fight against the enemy occupation and for implementation of sharia get killed as terrorist. And the enemy occupation get eulogised as liberation -as happened with the US occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. Such moral sickness is so global that even the brutal occupation by the imperialists get endorsed by the UN. Therefore, when the British Army occupied Palestine and Iraq in 1917, and the French Army occupied Syria in 1922, such colonial occupations were given the legal mandate by the League of Nations –the fore-runner of the UN. Following the footsteps of the imperialists, the Israeli terrorists, too, used terrorism as a tool for illegal state building. They occupied Palestine, evicted its original people from their homes and established Israel as an apartheid state only for the Jews. Since the UN itself stands under the occupation of the imperialists, such a criminal act of occupation never got condemned in its forum. Rather, Israel was given the quick recognition as a legal state.

 




Denial of the Divine Guidance & the Muslims’ Earned Calamities

The crime & the promised punishment

Islam’s highest glory doesn’t lie in mosques, minarets, Islamic arts or other artefacts. The real glory and strength of Islam lie in the Qur’anic Guidance and the rule of the most distinctive law called sharia -that were framed by none but by the All-knowing Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Only because of this Divine gift, the Muslims could built the finest civilisation on earth. What could be the worst and the ugliest crime against Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la than denial of space for His sharia and hudud in the courts of the Muslim states? How one can claim to be a Muslim with such a neglect of His law and the greatest wisdom in it? Such crimes never go unpunished -it is indeed His Qur’anic promise. In fact, the Muslims are already receiving the promised punishment in different forms. Deaths, defeats, occupation, destruction and humiliation by the hand of enemies are already visiting the Muslim lands.

Islam’s every law and the punitive prescription reflects the greatest wisdom of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. It works as a tool to enforce the Divine justice on earth and eradicate the crimes. It is indeed the humanising arm of Islam. Hence, without implementing sharia, Islam can’t deliver its real benefit to the mankind. Such a policy makes His project of delivering justice non-functional. The Muslim Ummah does not have any shortage of people who perform the religious rituals; more than a billion do that regularly all over the world. But that rituals didn’t add any glory to Islam and the Muslims; nor could end foreign occupation and humiliation.

The Muslims can emerge as the best people on earth only because of enjoining the good deeds (a’maru bil maruf) and eradicating the crimes (nehi anil munkar) –as indicated in sura al-Imran, verse 110. For that, it needs the full enforcement of the Divine instrument called sharia. The state that implements sharia becomes the safest haven on earth –as happened in the early days of Islam. Therefore, those who stand against sharia, they indeed stand against Allah –the Almighty. It is a rebellious move to look for peace and success without the Qur’anic roadmap. On such pretext, these rebels launch a criminal war to dismantle the most crucial civilizational instrument of Islam. Because of them, the Muslims now terribly suffer from an ongoing huge internal war. This way, they could contribute more speed to the continuing downfall. This is why, in the golden days of Islam, such ruthless enemies of Islam used to get capital punishment for their heinous crime.

Allah –the All-Knower never overlooks the crimes of these monstrous enemies of Islam. So, in the holy Qur’na He depicts these enemies in real colours. Those who do not run the judiciary according to the revealed sharia and do not apply hudud on the convicts are branded as kafir, zalim and fasiq.-(Sura Maidah, verse 44, 45 and 47). Five times prayer, month-long fasting, haj and charity of these criminals can’t undo such labelling. Awfully, these are the people who currently run the Muslim countries. As a result, the Muslims are deprived of the blessing of sharia law and hudud. It is the greatest deprivation of the Muslims; it is indeed the utter deprivation of guidance. Satan and his followers can easily claim leadership of these ideologically lost and confounded people. Which is why, even the infidels and evil ideologies get millions of followers in the Muslim countries. With such deprivation of moral guidance, how the Muslims can move forward in the right direction? Therefore, like a blind man, they fall again and again in the same hole.

A donkey -like any other animal, can’t understand the worth and importance of sharia- the highest gift of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Nor is it capable of showing any interest to implement it -although it can carry a holy Book day and night for years on its back. The people of Israel didn’t show any better sense towards sharia and other Divine guidance either. They were given sharia in Taurat. They could carry it as book, too; but they failed to understand its worth and importance. As a result, they didn’t show any interest to implement it. For such a sheer lack of sense and responsibility, Allah Sub’hana wa Tala made a comparison of these people of Israel with an animal like donkey. It is revealed, “The likeness of those who were entrusted with the Taurat, then they do did not take it on is like that of a donkey who carries (volumes of) books. Wretched is the example of the people who deny the signs of Allah. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.” -(Surah al-Jummah, verse 5). The unearned manna and salwa that they received in Sinai Peninsula for years couldn’t help them take the guidance, rather increased their greed and cowardice.

Sharia can’t be implemented in any land that stands occupied under the enemies. The enemy occupation needs to be dismantled. For that, it needs jihad against the enemies and the sacrifice of lives and wealth –as was the case with the prophet of Islam and his companions. Because of withdrawal from jihad, their land remained occupied by the enemies and the sharia revealed in Taurat didn’t get any chance for the implementation. It was indeed one of the ugliest betrayals of an assigned mission; and invited the Divine punishment. They had to roam as refugees in the cities and villages of various countries in Asia, Africa and Europe. During their stay in Arabia, they also showed their deadly enmity against Islam. They even aligned with the pagan infidels to dismantle the only sharia-state at its nascent stage in Medina. Awfully, the Muslims, today, are going down the same route. They recite Qur’an, but do not bother to understand it. Nor do they bother to abide by it. They are showing the same incompetence to understand the worth and importance of sharia. Like any kuffar, they too, stand firmly against the implementation of sharia in any Muslim land. They also show full alliance with the global coalition of the kuffars to dismantle any sharia-compliant state in any part of the World. They look like a class of neo-donkeys in the modern world. So the Christians, the Jews and the Hindus are not alone in their fight against Islam and the Muslims, the new generation of donkeys have joined their rank too. Before the colonial occupation of the kuffars, it was unimaginable that the Muslims will run the judiciary according to laws that are incompatible to sharia. In those days, the Muslims didn’t know any other law apart from sharia. Now, it is exactly the opposite. As an ummah, they also move to the opposite direction: the direction of defeat, decadence and humiliation.

 

The deprivation of the religious right

It is an extreme tyranny that the Muslims are deprived of the religious right even in the Muslim lands. It is the worst calamities of occupation by the secularist enemies of Islam. In the early days of Islam, the Muslims had to engage in bloody jihad to get their religious right from the kuffar occupiers. But now the so-called Muslim states under the so-called Muslim rulers do not provide any peaceful option to enjoy such right either. The Muslims fight wars, sacrifice live and build states -not only for the voting rights, civic liberty and other worldly gains. These are not the distinctive specifics of a Muslim state. Even in kuffar states, one can enjoy plenty of such rights. The religious right of a Muslim doesn’t entail only the right of religious rituals; it is much more than that. It is the full freedom to perform the full slavery to their Supreme Lord Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’ala –the sole reason for creation of the mankind. Such slavery to the Almighty Lord includes the full practice of His revealed law (sharia), hudud, shura, khelafa, jihad, Muslim unity and other obligatory Islamic fundamentals. The right to perform these Islamic obligation is million times more important than other civic rights. Voting rights, economic rights or cultural rights wouldn’t save humans from the hellfire. In absence of his full slavery to Almighty Allah, a Muslim runs the real risk of entering into hellfire –the holy Qur’an is very explicit on that. But how can a Muslim perform the full slavery to his Supreme Lord when he is not allowed to practise His revealed sharia and can’t dismantle the divisive walls in the Muslim World? How can he claim to be full Muslim when he can’t establish khilafa and can’t do jihad in His way? Compliance with a non-sharia state is indeed a clear marker of deficiency in faith and gross deviation from the Qur’anic straight path. Such deviation can only add more speed to the Muslims’ ongoing downfall; and bring more disgrace both here and in the hereafter. Those who really worried about life in the hereafter, how they could be oblivious or callous about this serious issue?

In the days of rightly guided Caliphs, there was no electoral process like today; but the people enjoyed the full civic liberty as well as the religious right to practise full slavery to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Hence they could give birth to the best civilisation on earth. Now in most of the Muslim countries, one can practise adultery, gambling, obscenity, riba and other evils but can’t be full Muslim! Annihilation of slavery to one Almighty Allah –as is the norm in kuffar and secularist occupation, opens the flash gates of slavery to other extreme evil forces. In the Muslim World, thus emerged the satanic rule of tyrannical despots. It is an irony that the Muslims show more submission to these criminal despots than to the laws of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. The voting rights of the common people now proved to be a mere façade for more sinister agenda of the evil forces. So the established liars, killers, robbers, rapists, fraudsters, and manipulators enjoy a free rein to bully and bluff the people for easy electoral victory. An honest and propaganda-shy man can’t compete these devils. Hence, people like Adolf Hitler, Norendro Modi, Donald Trump and many other evil-mongers could easily use the electoral process as a ladder to grab the topmost post. In India, the voting rights couldn’t protect even the survival rights of the minorities. The Muslims get beaten to death even on the suspicion of eating beef –as happened to many Indian Muslim men and women. The democratically elected governments, the party cadres and the law-enforcing agencies jointly take part in genocidal massacre against the minorities. It happened against the Muslims hundreds of times –more despicably in Gujrat (in 2002), Bombay (in 1992-93), and Muzaffarnagar (in 2013). Such massacres also took place against the Sikh in Delhi (in 1984) and against the Christians (in 2008) in many Indian provinces.

It is an irony that the disease in not confined within the enemies. It has also badly affected the people who believe in Islam and perform religious rituals. The symptoms appear through the wrong setting of their priorities.  Even many pro-Islamic parties and their leaders are focussed more on achieving the voting and civic rights; and give little importance to getting the full religious rights. As if, getting a Muslim elected as the President of the country or becoming a minister or an MP is a great victory for Islam. It has proved to be a great distraction from the real Islamisation methodology –as prescribed in the holy Qur’an and practised by the prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) and the early Muslims. This is why, elections in Turkey, Pakistan, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Malaysia, and many other Muslim countries and the participation of the so-called Islamic parties didn’t help getting the basic religious rights for practising the full slavery of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Because of the failed strategy, the Islamic parties couldn’t show any success to take politics, judiciary, administration, education and culture onto the Qur’nic roadmap. Therefore, even repeated exercise of voting rights do not help fulfil the core purpose of survival; rather strengthen and legitimise the secularists’ occupation. Under such occupation, the whole state infrastructure does everything to take people to the hellfire. Therefore, what else could be worst catastrophe for humans than such evil occupation? Such occupation now survives in a Muslim country through Muslim vote, Muslim taxpayers’ money and Muslim manpower!




Moral Collapse of the Muslims & Alignment with the Enemy Agenda

The moral collapse & the complacency –

More awfully, the Muslims have added new low to their history. The pre-Islamic Arabs didn’t invite the Roman or Persian Empires to kill the compatriot Islamists in their midst; nor did they invest their wealth to finance the enemy’s war against Islam. But now, the unearned wealth of Islam’s heart land is given to the enemy camps and companies to finance their war of occupation, killing and destruction in Iraq, Syria, Yamen, Libya, Nigeria, Mali, Somalia and many other Muslim countries. Hence, every bomb that is now dropped in the Muslim cities or villages has a Muslim contribution in its production. Now they are inviting the US, Russian and the French bomber planes to kill the innocent Muslims men, women and the children. In the early days of Islam, the Muslims made jihad even in distant foreign lands to free the non-Muslims from tyranny. But now most of the Muslim countries stay under occupation of the worst types of despots. It is also a great irony that the so-called Islamic parties of the Muslim countries show the same moral collapse and complacency. They look very complacent even with the voting right under the enemy occupation. They show their complacency even with the secularists, hence make political alliance with them. They show little eagerness to perform full slavery to the Almighty Lord; hence do nothing in the implementation of sharia, hudud, khelafa, Muslim unity and jihad in the Muslim lands. As if, they are more fearful of the US-led coalition than Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Since Islamic fundamentals like sharia, khilafa and jihad are deeply detested by the US-led imperialists, they keep themselves far aloof from these basics.

More importantly, the Muslims show utter ignorance about the source of their own strength. Hence, look more focused to find more unearned wealth. Therefore, the holy Qur’an –the most powerful gift of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la receives little attention as a book of guidance. It is considered only as a book for recitation. They also show little wisdom to learn from the history of the early Muslims. For moral development of a people, there is a need for an effective value adding process. Humans get that added value not from any industry; but from the book of knowledge and from teachers and mentors. But what can be the better book of knowledge than the holy Qur’an. And who can be best teacher or mentor than the great prophet? The Muslims are the only people on earth who possess the Qur’anic roadmap –the miraculous key for successes both here and in the hereafter. The highly valued car doesn’t help reach the right destination, the correct road map is crucial. For the same reason, huge unearned wealth of the Arab Muslims didn’t help them attain any strength or glory. They are as defenceless and weak as the pre-Islamic Arab. They are repeated beaten by a tiny Israel. The early Muslims didn’t get any unearned wealth; but they could attain the glory of the most powerful civilizational force on earth. That was possible only because of the Qur’anic roadmap.  The ongoing downfall of the Muslims indeed owe to the fact that they didn’t make use of the highest gift of Almighty Lord.

A Muslim demonstrates to be a true Muslim only by his agenda of his survival; not by his name, dress or rituals. His prayers, politics, business, behaviour, culture, judiciary, warfare and all others activities must show the full alignment with the path revealed in the holy Quran and shown by the final prophet (peace be upon him). Any mismatch or non-alignment plays the decisive role to fix his place in the hellfire. These are not obscure issue in Islam. In fact, it is the central point of the holy Qur’an’s all revelations. The true distinctiveness of a Muslim from the non-Muslims has never been in his name or nomenclature nor in his rituals or customs. It is indeed in his agenda of survival. When the Arab people accepted Islam, they didn’t change their name or dress. They changed their agenda of survival.  The disbelievers also do survive. They also do politics, make sacrifices, and even die. But they make sacrifices and die either for the selfish personal interest or to serve their racial, national or tribal cause. But a Muslim make sacrifices and die only to fulfil the agenda of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la.

The agenda of Allah Sub’hana encompasses all arenas of the human life. In politics, His sovereignty must prevail over every things. No man, no king and no parliament has the right to challenge His sovereignty. A Muslim’s politics must be aimed at only promoting His sovereignty; not an king or parliament or people’s sovereignty. In the field of law and justice, no court or judge has the right to run the judiciary except according to His sharia law. If anyone goes against it, as per Qur’anic revelation he is a ka’fir, zalem and fasik. (sura Maida, Verse 44, 45 and 47). In warfare, no army or a soldier has the right to do any war except in the way of Allah Sub’ hana wa Ta’la. Since his own life is sold out to his Almighty Lord –as a part of a deal that gives him paradise in the hereafter, how can he spend it in causes other than of his Supreme Lord? A Muslims can’t do politics to divide the mankind and raise walls of hatred in the name of race, tribe or language. These are basics of Islam; whoever read the holy Qur’an, the traditions of the prophet (peace be upon him) and the history of the early Muslims must know these basics as he knows his own body, his own hands and feet.

 

Aligning with the enemy agenda

But now, the Muslims have made another history which is 180 degree opposite to the history of the early Muslims. It is the history of aligning with the satanic agenda and betraying the agenda of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. In the early days of Islam, it was impossible to think that a Muslim will offer five times prayers behind the prophet (peace be upon him), but will run the judiciary according to the kuffar law that legalise extramarital sex and protect prostitution as a lawful profession; and allow the banks and other financial institutions to operate on riba. But now it is the common practice in most of the Muslim countries! In those days, could a Muslim ever imagine that the government will open sea beaches, establish hotels and run clubs, pubs and casinos and invite the sex tourists to practise all the haram things there? Prostitutes run their business hidden from the public eyes. But the rulers of the Muslim countries like Turkey, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Lebanon, Malaysia, Indonesia and many others set new low of shamelessness than the prostitutes. They openly run such ugliest sins as the part of their economy. And the Muslim citizens –even those who go to the mosques, keep fast and perform haj, wilfully pay taxes to finance and give police protection to such sins. With such alignment with the satanic agenda, how one can claim to be a Muslim?

Commitment on fulfilling the prescribed agenda of life can’t grow or survive on ignorance. Hence, removing such ignorance must be the most essential element of humans’ education. Seeking such education is obligatory in Islam. It is far more important than reading, writing or numeracy skills. Even the most advanced reading, writing, numeracy skills or a PhD may not save one from hellfire. Such life-saving knowledge is the exclusive domain of the holy Qura’n –the final Book of guidance from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Ignorance on such knowledge can only breed betrayal of the Divine agenda and cause deviation from the Qur’anic straight path; hence it is a major sin in Islam. Thousands of prophets were sent to mankind not to teach technology, business or medicine. They were sent to eradicate the mischievous ignorance that hides the core agenda of life, and to demonstrate how to align with the vision, mission and agenda of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Almighty Lord’s agenda is indeed the agenda of Islam. And His vision and mission must be taken as the life’s vision and mission by every Muslim. Only with the full alignment with his Supreme Lord’s vision, mission and agenda, one can play the desired role as His viceroy on earth and find a place in the paradise. Otherwise, despite his five time prayer, month-long fasting, charity, haj and umrah, he may be sleep-walking with the enemies of Islam or actively engaged in the war against agenda of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. They stand against Islam and forge coalition with other enemies of Islam. In fact, they has already caused immense calamities in most of the Muslim countries. Their animosity against the resurgence of Islam is no less than the known kuffars! It is an irony that their prayers, fasting, haj or umrah and charity do not help them align with Allah Sub’hana Ta’la and His agenda. Rather, they stand against the implementation of sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa, Islamic judiciary and other basics of Islam. The anti-Islamic forces could thrive and even could capture political power in most of the Muslim countries only because of these people. They are the people who cast their votes, donate money and take arms in favour of the secularists, nationalists, racists, despots and other anti-Islamic forces who have already forged alliance with the global coalition against Islam. Such problem has already overwhelmed the whole Muslim World.

 

The wrong diagnosis

Due to poor understanding of the problem, the Muslims feel that their downfall owes to their housing, roads & highways and the lack of air-links. Hence they are spending trillions of dollar of these unearned wealth to construct new houses, new roads, new airports and high-rise buildings even in the seas and the hostile deserts –as seen in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia and other gulf states. Thus they have added a lot of value to their sandy deserts, gulf straits and open skies; but invested very little to enhance their own moral cum Islamic values. Instead, they have devalued themselves to the level of pre-Islamic Arabs. Like the pre-Islamic Arabs, they have raised divisive walls on tribal, racial and geographical fault lines. Through such division, they have succeeded to restrict the flow of their unearned wealth to the Muslims of Yemen, Palestine, Syria, Mali, Mauritania and other impoverished Muslim lands.

 

The calamities of educational failure

Education failure leads to ultimate failure of humans’ survival. A man then terribly fails to set his own agenda of life. Such a man may have a long life; but spends his whole life only to reach the hellfire. Despite all of his rituals, his talent, time and abilities are spent only to bring the victory of the evil forces. Thus, he causes the total wastage of the Almighty Allah’s invaluable endowment trusted on him. Along with their own catastrophic loss, they also turn killing cum destructive tool in the hand of other evil forces. Because of such people, the colonialists could recruit thousands of Muslims as the mercenary to prolong their occupation and extend it to other countries. According to one estimate, by end of 1920, more than 200 thousands Indian Muslims served in the British Colonial Army to serve the British interest. They also fought the World Wars. So, in order to replenish their Army with the mercenaries, it was always a political cum educational priority in the enemy camps to keep the Muslims under the colonial occupation fully ignorant of the Qur’anic knowledge. This way they were kept ignorant of the agenda of Allah Sub’hna wa Ta’la and also ignorant of their own role as a Muslim.

 

In the occupied Muslims lands, the colonial occupiers established schools and madrasas, too. But the aim of the colonial education system was not to remove the most detrimental ignorance that restricted their growth as a true Muslim, but to deepen it. The main focus of the colonial education system was to create servile mercenaries; saving people’s iman and their life in the hereafter has never been their concern. The colonial rule has ended; but the same colonial legacy still prevails in the Muslim countries with few minor changes. Hence the same ignorance vis-à-vis Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’ala’s agenda and the Muslims’ role still survives. As a result, the ruling anti-Islamic forces in the Muslim countries –like their colonial mentors, still thrive on such ignorance. The ignorance on this issue is quite deep even among the Muslims who have qualified as bachelors, masters and even earned PhDs. To promote a class of so-called ulama with the same ignorance, the British colonialists also established religious madrasa too, like one called Kolkata Aliya Madrasa. The real purpose of this religious madrasa was to hide the most important issue of Islam by huge hypes of trivial and peripheral issues like differences between sects of Islam. Their main emphasis on teaching and reading the prophet’s (peace be upon him) tradition was to prove only the superiority of their own sect against other sects; and not for bringing victory or glory of Islam. Hence, in the Muslim World, the number of religious madrasas increased. The number of so-called religious scholars also increased. These madrasas could help fortify the beliefs of the different sects; and could also increase the number of their own followers. But Islam as a code of life and its sharia, hudud, khilafa, jihad and trans-ethnic unity remain badly defeated in Islam’s own lands. On the contrary, the early Muslims –despite their small number, could bring the spectacular success. Because, they didn’t miss Islam’s key points. These illiterate Arab shepherds, small traders or farmers could correctly and deeply understood the agenda of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la; hence could set the agenda of their own life correctly. As a result, they could add golden chapters to the Muslim history.

 




Corruption in the Conceptual Premise & Betrayal of the Core Agenda

 The distraction –

Causing distraction from Allah Sub’hana wa Tala and His objective is the major agenda of the enemies. They do not cause this distraction by the name of idol worshiping, cow worshipping, Christianity or atheism.  Most of the distraction from Islam is done in the name of Islam; and not by the kuffars, but by the so-called Muslims. The damage to Qur’anic teaching is being done in the name of respecting Qur’an. Hence such projects of harming Islam have been very successful. The continuing downfall of the Muslim owes to this deep distraction. As a result of such distraction, the Muslims are distracted from Islam’s prime mission. Hence, unlike the early days of Islam, the guidance of Islam and the laws of Islam are found only in then holy Qur’an; not in the Muslim life.

The enemies’ war against Islam has many frontiers; and in each frontier these enemies have specific strategies. They recruit a lot of Muslims –even Mullahs as their soldiers. Most of the damages against Islam are done not by the non-Muslims but by these so-called Muslims. They have damaged even the Islam’s own methodology to build connection with Allah Sub’hana wa Tala. These are done in the name of Islam. They are harming Qur’an in the name Qur’an too. They have been successful to cause distraction from the holy Qur’an. The holy Qur’an can only help people to show the straight path to the paradise when it is understood and followed. No kafir told Muslim that mere recitation of Qur’an brings reward; but it was told by the Muslim Mullahs and sheikhs. Millions of Muslim children in Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia Afghanistan and many other countries are taught how to read Qur’an; but not to understand it. Whereas it is revealed: “Whoever firmly hold Qur’an, he is guided onto the way of siratul Mustaqeem.” If anyone believes that hold a correct roadmap will lead to the right destination and for that he does not need to understand the roadmap, people will label him as an insane. But such insanity prevails among the Muslims. Hence they failing to get the right path; also failing to build up connection with the Allah Sub’hand Ta’la.

Zikr (remembrance) of Allah Sub’han wa Ta’la is the powerful tool to connect people with Him. Whenever a person remember the Almighty Lord, He also remember him. Fazkuruni azkurukum: you remember me I will remember you –is His promise, as revealed in Sura Baqara). And the best zikr is salah. Five time salah a day gives the best opportunity to do deep zikr of Him –especially on the message, guidance and obligation that have been revealed in the holy Qur’an. In the early days of Islam, the mosques in Muslim World played the most important role to build the connection with Allah Sub’han wa Ta’la. Mosques are the only institution of Allah Sub’hana Tala. The damage against such connecting zikr was done also in the name of zikr. In the days of prophet (peace be upon him) no sufi khanqa or shrines were built for adding any extra premises zikr; nor the Muslims were taken out of the mosques to do that.

Damage to spirit of salah is also done in the name salah. Tabligh-e-jamaati people have been successful to distract millions of Muslims from Islam’s prime agenda. Sharia, hudud, khilafa, jihad and Islamic state do not fit into their agenda. Their whole agenda is confined mostly within the five times salah. They do not call the Muslims to full Islam. So they are adding new calamity to the Muslims.

In the golden days of Islam, the Muslims didn’t have any university or college. The mosques provided the premises not only for prayers but also worked as the Divine institution to disseminate the knowledge of Qur’an. Now the Muslims have millions of mosques, but most of the palacious mosques are non-functional or dysfunctional. The doors are kept open only for prayers. The huge spances of these mosques remain unutilised.

 

The conceptual demise

The foreign occupation, deaths and destruction, the eviction of the Muslims from their own homes are only the symptoms.  The disease of the Muslim ummah is much deeper; it is intensely inside the conceptual premise. Humans’ every deed, behaviour, politics and character are indeed the expression of his conceptual paradigm. Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la –the Most Wisest delivers such a wisdom to His great prophet (peace be upon him) and to the whole mankind. So, it is revealed, “Tell (O Muhammad): every one act as per his (conceptual) form, but you Lord knows the best who is best guided in the path.” –(Sura Isra, verse 64). In this verse, the word “shakela” is used; it means form or shape. But it is not the physical form of a human that shapes his character or act; it is indeed the conceptual form or the paradigm. This is why, a man of secular model of thought profoundly differ from the people of the Islamic model. Hence, every meaningful social revolution owes to the revolutionary gain in the conceptual premise. Islam is not an exception either. So, those who want to bring any societal revolution start with the conceptual premise of the humans. The evil forces do the same, too. The holy Qur’an and the prophet (peace be upon him) took more than a decade to bring a conceptual revolution in the early Muslims; as a result, a group of war-ready people came up to make every sacrifices to promote the cause of Islam. But the deep secularisation process during the anti-Islamic rule of the foreign and native occupiers has reversed the whole process of Islamisation. As a result, the whole ideological premise of the Muslim ummah now stand dismantled. So, the Muslim countries are producing more enemies of Islam than the soldiers.

Since the de-Islamisation process still continues, the Muslims’ downfall also continues. The political and ideological forces in the Muslim countries hence face exactly the opposite direction; and stand far away from Almighty Lord’s agenda. Rather, they are more aligned with the kuffars. So, the imperialists, nationalists, monarchists, secularists and the ugly despots get more friends and soldiers in the Muslim World that Islam. Like the kuffars, they too, look happy with the annihilation of the early days’ Islam. Moreover, they are also desperate to stop any chances of its revival. Because of such animosity towards Islam, the most revered Islamic jargons of the early Muslims like jihad, khilafa, sharia, shura, ummah, ittehad and hudud have turned taboo amidst these so-called Muslims. What Abu Jahl or Abu Lahab used to do with the early Muslims, they are doing the same against those who -like the early Muslims, want to bring back the Islamic rule. They are either being killed or put in prison. The conceptual distortion has gone so worse that even fighting against the occupation of foreign kuffar is criminalised; it is called terrorism. With such a mind-set, even the US-led occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq with the death of about 1.5 million and destruction of numerous cities and villages got legalised -not only by the kuffar states but also by many of the Muslims states. In such a culture of perversion, even the rule of the most inhuman despotic autocrats over the Muslim countries are tolerated with deep silence of approval.

 

 The betrayal of the core agenda

The Muslims have hugely increased in number. But they live with a culture of continued betrayal of the core agenda of survival. Hence, they fail conspicuously to add any glory or success to Islam and the Muslims. Whereas, Islam is the only prescribed religion for the whole mankind; as revealed: “innad dina endallihil Islam” (meaning: certainly, Islam is the only acceptable religion unto Allah). So, how could it happen that the followers of His deen would fail to achieve the promised victory? Such disgraceful failure in all spheres of life can only be the marker of Divine punishment. It proves another core principle of Almighty Lord that His blessings comes only to the people who engage with their life, wealth and skills in the implementation of His deen. Opposing sharia, hudud, khelafa, and Muslim unity or staying away from the implementation of Islam is indeed the crime of the kuffars. Hence how it is possible that such an act of betrayal will bring any blessing or victory?

How crucial is the implementation of Islam’s law, hudud and other principle is not an obscure issue; it has been made very clear many times in the holy Qur’an. It is revealed: “He has made plain to you (O Muhammad) of the religion (deen) what He commanded upon Noah and that which We have revealed to you, and that which We commanded upon Ibrahim and Musa and Isa –to establish the religion (deen) and not be divided therein.” –(Sura as-Shura verse 13). Hence, the sole mission of all the Divine prophets was the establishment of the revealed deen -Islam. Therefore, this verse has a huge ground-breaking implication. It brings an overwhelming revolution in Muslims minds. Those who truly live with Islam, the agenda of establishing His deen (aqamat-e-deen) in fact brings obligatory jihad in their life. Hence, none of the prophet’s (peace be upon him) companion was away from it; more than 70 per cent become shaheed only because of their commitment for establishing Islam. Islam was never revealed to the holy prophets to keep captive its laws (sharia), punitive codes (hudud) and all other necessary directives for full slavery of Almighty Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la inside the Qur’an. Nor should it be confined with in the premise of private life –as envisaged through some rituals, supplication and recitation.

How Islam needs to be practised in social, political, cultural and state level has never been obscure. In fact, it was the prime agenda of the final prophet (peace be upon him) to demonstrate the whole methodology in front of the public eye. He never died until he could fully showcase how this deen (religion) to be established on a land. Since no society, state or ruling clique provides any empty space for its implementation, the real test of iman of a believer initiates here. The task brings a Muslim face to face against the war-ready kuffars; hence it takes a turn into a bloody war. Even the finest and the kindest man like Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) couldn’t avoid such a war. The prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam and his companions had to leave their ancestral homes and migrate to Medina to establish the deen.

In the holy Qur’an, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la has revealed His Own agenda thrice -using almost the same narrative. To make it an obligatory Divine agenda, a single Qur’anic proclamation is enough. But, the Almighty Lord preferred to repeat it thrice: it came in sura Taubah, sura Fatah and sura Saf. Such repetition has added extra importance to His Vision. The common text in all three verses is the same and comes as “liyuzhirahu alad dini kullihi”. It is indeed the core intent of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. It means “to make His din (Islam) prevail over all other creeds or religions”. Such revelation of His vision has indeed a huge implication on those who sincerely believe in Him and has true love for Him. It sets the agenda of a true believer’s life. Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la never likes that His Own revealed religion with its distinctive creed, sharia, hudud, khilafa, justice system, jihad in His way and the concept of united Muslim ummah should get replaced by the kuffar’s way of life. Hence those who have iota of love for Him cannot like any defeat of His religion either. Any amount of compliance with Islam’s annihilation from political, cultural, judicial, economic and other areas of life is enough to cause displeasure of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Such compliance with the kuffar is enough to bring utter failure in the hereafter. Therefore, how a believer can tolerate the current state of annihilation of Islamic fundamentals like sharia, hudud, khilafa, justice system, jihad and the concept of united Muslim ummah from Muslim states and societies? Instead, it will be the heart-felt mission of every believer to bring those Islamic basics back to the Muslims life –as was done by the last prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam and his companions. Only then, his own agenda of survival becomes fully consistent with the agenda of Allah sub’hana wa Ta’al. In humans’ life, nothing can be more important and more sacred than such congruence with his Almighty Lord’s vision.

Islam came to the world to make people fit to fulfil the core objective of their creation (full servitude to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la); and thus to make them competent for the paradise. As a part of the full servitude to Almighty Lord, the early Muslims followed Islam’s own methodology, mission and the roadmap. As a result, they could successfully attain both the stipulated objectives of Islam: enjoining the right (amaru bil maruf) and eradication the wrongdoers (nehi anil munker). Hence they could attain the promised highest rank (khaira ummat) amidst whole mankind. Because of the highest morality, the early Muslims could cause huge religious conversion in Asia, Africa and Europe. But later on, they Muslim failed on both the fronts. As a result, instead of getting eradicated from the face of earth, the corruptive wrongdoers could capture the state power; and they could build huge infrastructure of corruption by the taxpayers’ money. The whole civil and military administration, the police, the judiciary, the educational institutions, the media and even the religious bodies become servile tool in their hand to spread corruption. Now the whole Muslim World stay under their occupation. As a result of the occupation, the downhill march of the ummah got a new speed. Instead of becoming the best people on earth (khaira ummat), they could take them down to the level of the worst people on earth. Even the cow-worshipping Indian idolaters could show better sense than these so-called corrupt Muslims. Despite their ethnic, linguistic and cast differences, more than one billion Hindus could stay united in one country.

As a consequence, the  with the moral collapse, they are doing greater harm to Islam and the Muslims. Because of them, the religious conversion rate to Islam now stands very low. Islam is now hostage in its own lands by the most corrupt and despotic people on earth. Clouds hide even the glowing sun; likewise, the corrupt Muslims could successfully hide the real Islam. Thus, they do the job of the worst enemies of Islam. This way, these internal enemies of Islam have proven their worth as the partner of the external enemies to subvert any effort of Islamic resurgence in any Muslim lands. Because of them, the bombing campaign of USA, Russia, France get support in the Muslim lands. These internal enemies do other catastrophic harms, too. They nullify Islam’s core project of eradicating the wrongdoers (nehi anil munker). As a result, they are inviting more Divine punishment on a Muslim land. from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Corruption breeds more corruption; and makes people’ mind and souls hostile to any faith. It is a moral disease that kills faith and moral instincts of humans. For faithful moral survival, therefore, it needs the total eradication of the source of corruption. Hence, Almighty Lord has prescribed the curative measures, too. Mere enlightenment with Qur’anic knowledge and the religious rituals do not help cure the disease. Full implementation of sharia and hudud hence made obligatory to eliminate the criminals – the source of the disease. So it is revealed, “You are the best of the nations raised for (the benefit of) the mankind; you enjoin what is right and eradicate the wrong and believe in Allah..”-(Surah al-Imran, verse 110).

But the Muslims’ failure in enjoining the right and eradicating the wrong is huge. When a number of the Muslim countries score as the most corrupt countries in the world, it shows the real disease of the Muslims. It reveals that the Muslims are terribly failing to grow up as true Muslim. The huge number of mosques, madrasas, school and colleges can’t hide such failure. Such moral failure indeed gives an exact estimate of the Muslims’ downfall as a civilizational force. It shows how badly they are failing to be the viceroy of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Since sharia, hudud and the Islamic judiciary do the eradicating part of the job against corruption, the Muslims can’t regain moral health without their full implementation. In absence of such eradicating tool in place, corruption is climbing up with an alarming rate. In Islam, the importance of sharia and hudud is so high that Almighty Allah has labelled those who do not run their judiciary as per revealed law (sharia) as kafir, zalim and fasik. –(Surah Maidah, verse 44, 45, 47). But, the Muslims show the ugliest betrayal not only of the assigned mission, but also of the Qur’anic prescription. More awfully, they look quite complacent even with this terrible failure. As if, they can survive as Muslim and enter the paradise without adhering to the prescription. Now, such betrayal is showing the ugliest face. The rulers of these Muslim countries now stand hand in hand with the kuffars against the implementation of sharia, hudus, khilafa, jihad and other basics of Islam.
