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? 




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.

 

 




Disconnection with Allah (SWT): The Mother of All Failures

The failed priority –

The prime agenda of Islam is to connect humans with their Almighty Creator Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Such a connection is indeed the most crucial issue in human life. For a human, nothing is more important than this connectivity with his Supreme Lord. Whether a man will reach heaven or hell is solely decided on this single factor. But now, the Muslims are known for deeper disconnection. Their deeds and behaviour, states and ideologies, politics and warfare, law and constitutions, education and culture show little or no connection with Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and His final Book of guidance –the holy Qur’an. With such robust disconnection from Almighty Allah and His holy Qur’an, if the 1.6 billion Muslims had achieved any success, peace or glory that would have easily nullified the need of Islam for the humans. But, that didn’t happen in any part of the Muslim World. Instead, such disconnection has caused terrible deviation from the straight path (siratul mustaqeem); and hence proven to be the mother of all failures in the Muslim World.

In Muslims’ life, the symptoms of such disconnection and deviation are huge. Because of that, the Muslims do not hesitate even to stand against Islam and against the tradition of the prophet (peace be upon him) and the early Muslims. Such disconnection from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la can only lead to spiritual death. Hence, in the Muslim majority countries, those who oppose the practice of sharia, hudud, khilafa, jihad, Muslim unity and other Qur’anic basics are not the kuffars; they are the spiritually dead Muslims. Because of such massive epidemic of spiritual death, the warmongering kuffars are not alone in their war against Islam to kill more Muslims, occupy more Muslim lands, and prevent resurgence of any Islamic state in any part of the world. For the same reason, the imperialist kuffars of the West were not alone to dismantle the Osamnia khilafa in 1917; they could easily get millions of Muslim mercenaries in their rank. The British, alone, could recruit more than a million Arab Muslims. The other imperialists like the French and the Italians also got the similar successes. It is astonishing to know that such a large number of Arab Muslims never fought any war for Islam in any segment of the Muslim history. About half a million of the Arabs gave their lives for the British cause only in the First World War. (Source: Al Jazeera English, the First World War through Arab Eyes). Their spiritual death was so complete that they hated to sell their life in exchange of deathless life in paradise. But they sold the same amanah of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la only for a salary of few hundred pounds per month to the kuffars. Thus the Arab contribution in the disintegration of the Arab World and in the creation of their own enemy –Israel, is immense. The state of the Indian Muslims was not different either. More than 200 hundred thousand Indian Muslims fought as mercenaries for the British in the World Wars. They helped in the occupation of Iraq and Syria. All the ruling military elites of Pakistan like General Eskander Mirza, General Ayub Khan, and General Yahiya Khan started their life as the perfect mercenary of the colonial British. Later on, these proven Trojan Horses of the enemies and the ideological cum cultural converts of the West could easily grab the highest post of the country as its despotic President. While in power, they could cause rapid and immense ideological meltdown of Pakistan – a country that was created with a great Islamic civilisation objective by pan-Islamic coalition of the South Asian Muslims. In a Muslim land, the success of the cow-worshipping Indian infidels were also huge; they could easily recruit millions of Bengali Muslims to kill Muslims and destroy Pakistan in 1971. The USA’s huge success in quick occupation and destruction of Afghanistan, Iraq and now in Syria also owes to the same spiritual disconnection and death of the Muslims. More awfully, millions Muslims and their pro-occupation governments in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Libya, Turkey, and many other Muslim countries have already joined he US-led coalition in its destructive war in the Muslim World. So, rapes, deaths, destruction and eviction in the Muslim lands get more expanse and a new speed.

A Muslim’s strong commitment to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la’s agenda is not utopian. Rather, it automatically generates from a stronger spiritual connection with Him. Such a strong linkage pulls men or women out of the devilish march and puts them onto the straight path towards the paradise. Such a reality is very explicit in the holy Qur’an: “Whoever holds fast to Allah, he is indeed guided onto the straight path.”–(Sura al-Imran, verse 101). The question arises, how can one hold fast to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la? Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’al is not visible; but His vision, mission and agenda became distinctly audible and easily recognisable through the holy Qur’an. One gets connected with Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la only through fully aligning with those expressed vision, mission and the objective –as expressed in the holy Qur’an. In fact, such connectivity is the true spirituality of a man or a woman. The holy Qur’an works as the rope of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la, Hence, whoever wants to connect with Him, must connect with Qur’anic teaching. Only this way one can build up his true spirituality. A person may spend thousands of nights in sufi khanqa, darwishi circles or shrines; but his disconnection with His vision, mission, and objective proves his spirituality as fake. Such a disconnected man can live a pain-free complacent life even after the enemy occupation, deaths, rapes and destructions in the Muslim lands. He can even celebrate the kuffar occupation, and adapt their culture and life-style. Absence of sharia, hudud, jihad, khilafa and the fragmentation of the Muslim Ummah is not an issue for him. Amidst such disconnection, true Islamic belief can’t survive in their heart; only grows disbelief and hypocrisy. The early Muslims could achieve all their successes only due to strong connection with Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la.

 

Amidst a world of ideological warfare, one can think of neutrality only for those who are infant, insane or dead. It needs little effort to prove that every man or woman takes a side. Those who fail to connect with Almighty Allah and His agenda, definitely connect with the falsehood. They align with the army of evil forces: they differ only with the degree of involvement. And, while connected with Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la, a believer receives strong inner motivation to work as His most obedient servant on earth. Only through such connection, a believer feels an inner urge to invest all of his talent, energy, skills and even blood to fulfil the Wish of his Supreme Lord. Due to such connection, more than 70 per cent of the companions of the prophet (peace be upon him) could sacrifice even their life to fulfil the agenda of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la.

 

The disconnection with the Almighty

The Divine connectivity cum spirituality of a Muslim does not mean mere remembrance or glorification (tasbeeh) of His holy name. Rather, it is the deep commitment to abide by His every Qur’anic decree. True faith of a believer gets expressed only through such commitment. So, a true believer shows his uncompromising attitude to implement His prescribed code of life (deen) in every arena of life. He shows his commitment to run the judiciary only according to the sharia. He never shows any leniency in executing the sanctioned punishment (hudud) on the convicts. And establishing khilafa, Muslim unity and jihad (holy war) in His way become the parts of his life. Absence of such Qur’anic prescription in Muslims’ life indeed presents evidence of their disconnection form the Almighty Lord. No amount of religious rituals can’t repair that disconnection. The ongoing downfall of the Muslims indeed owe to such disconnection. With such grotesque disconnection, how a Muslim can deserve any success or glory? In fact, any amount of success of these disconnected Muslims would have gone against the Divine principle. Moreover, on the top of such awful disconnection from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la, their connectivity with Satan is huge. These are expressed through their character, culture, politics, judiciary, economics, warfare, and religious beliefs. Supremacy of the kufr laws in the judiciary, riba in banking, acceptance prostitution in the society, and nationalism, racism, tribalism and despotism in politics are indeed the examples of such Satanic connection.

Each faith, ideology or religion has its own ways to build the connection with its deities. Hindu faith takes its followers to jungles or monasteries and asks them to do contemplation or yoga in isolation with specific posture and recitation of some specific mantra. But these are only for some special people called guru; the common people are allowed only to go the temple as visitor. The same is true in Buddhism. The Christian faith try to connect people by means of some short-lived weekly congregation in churches. Singing songs and reading pages from bible remain as the practice. All these devices are human interventions; hence do not show any universal procedure or standard. Western hedonism, materialism and liberalism have their own way to connect their followers, too. Pubs, clubs, casinos, brothel houses, opera houses, theatres, drugs, pornography and many other stuff do the job to connect the people to the new life style.

Without a strong connection with the Supreme Creator, a Muslim can’t survive as a true Muslim; nor can be party in His way. Such a disconnected man can’t stand against the strong current of corruptive faiths, thoughts, life styles and cultural cum political forces. Rather gets quickly pulled away from the straight path; and then taken to the hellfire. But such connection can’t be built by mere pronouncement of faith in Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and belief in His books and prophets. Belief needs to be added with deep understanding. Religious rituals of an ignorant man can’t help build such connection; neither does help mere recitation of the Qur’an without any understanding. For a full revolution in character and deeds, it needs a total revolution in the conceptual premise –the birth place of all revolution. For that, it is crucial to strongly connect humans’ body, mind and conscience with the omnipresent and omnipotent Creator -Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’al. Islam has its own methodology to build such a connection. In fact, Islam is the only religion that can successfully connect people with Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. And it owes to the methodology devised only by Him. All obligatory religious rituals like 5 time daily prayer, month long fasting, charity, haj are indeed the parts of that methodology. And the most powerful tool to build this connection is the holy Qur’an. The word “Qur’an” means the act of recitation. It is itself a great ibadah. In initial 13 years of prophet hood, there was no obligatory five time salah (prayer) like today. Standing in the middle of night and recitation of the holy Qur’an was the recommended ibadah. So, in one of the earliest chapter of Qur’an it is revealed: “Stand (to pray) all night except a little; half of it or a little less than that. Or a little more. And recite the Qur’an (aloud) in a slow (pleasant tone and) style. Indeed, We will send down to you heavy words (the obligatory prayers, jihad and the sharia laws). Verily, the rising by the night is most potent way to govern one’s self and suitable for understanding the Word (of Allah).” –(Sura al-Mujammel, verse 2-6). Through slow and mindful recitation of Qur’an, mind gets the much needed nutrition for his spiritual growth –crucial to survive as a true slave of the Almighty Lord. An anaemic patient needs regular transfusion of blood for his survival. For the survival of iman, a believer, too needs regular transfusion; and it is the transfusion of Qur’anic knowledge. It works through recitation of the holy Qur’an. The Message, the Vision and the Mission of the Almighty Lord then get direct access to his heart. The knowledge of the unseen world then get the powerful expression through believers’ voice only in His Own vocabularies. While a man or woman recites the holy Qur’an in prayers, indeed the message of the Almighty Lord gets dip down into his soul and recharges his iman. Hence in salah, the best part is the qiyam when Qur’an is recited. Deep understanding of the holy Qur’an (not mere rote reading), five time salah in congregation, month-long fasting in Ramadan, haj, and regular charity in the way of Almighty Lord are the prescribed means to build and continuously strengthen such connection. In the early days of Islam, this Divine prescription worked with tremendous success to build the best people on earth. Five time salah worked as the meeraj of the believer –as described by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Meeraj is the ascension to the nearness to Allah; it the communication of Divine message deep into the heart of the believer. It is the deep integration with His mission. That happens when a believer stands in salah and recites the holy Qur’an with the full understanding of its meaning. In the holy Qur’an, they are described as the people who say “Samey’na wa ata’na” meaning “we listened and we obeyed.” But such a motivation of listening and obeying seldom works in the Muslim mind. Therefore, the disconnection with Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la gets deeper.




The Muslims’ Betrayal of the Civilizational Role

The neglected objective –

The Muslims claim to be the followers of Islam; but they live without pursuing Islam’s key objective. Because of that, they could ignore the importance of politics –the most powerful tool to purse any civilizational objective. In fact, the downfall of the Muslims not only owes to colonisation of Muslim lands and their minds by the colonial enemies, but also to their own insane attitude towards politics –especially of those who claim to be religious scholar or ulama. Among the so-called puritan Muslims –called traditional ulama, politics is a highly detested taboo. As if, politics is a tool of distraction from ibadah and the Qur’anic straight path. As if, it is an exclusive domain of dirty worldly people.

Because of such a conceptual epidemic in the Muslim World, most of the religious scholars and the common Muslims stay out of politics. As a result, an empty space was voluntarily created for the foreign or home-grown anti-Islamic forces to occupy the driving seats of almost every Muslim country. Even when the Muslim lands were occupied one by one by the kuffar colonialists these so-called ulama remained confined inside their own religious seminaries. The enemies of Islam thus could take control of the whole Muslim World without fighting a single significant war. It is indeed the most calamitous event in the whole history of Islam. They terribly failed to understand the importance of politics. They fail to recognise that the prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) not only engaged in politics but also was the head of Islamic state. This way he left a sunnah cum legacy for his followers. Moreover, for others, politics is a tool for grabbing power and pursuing the selfish interest. But for Muslims, it is the holy mission for attaining Islam’s civilizational vision. Therefore denial of politics is indeed the betrayal of Prophet’s (peace be upon him) teachings. It is also a betrayal of Islam’s humanising cum civilizational objective. How such betrayal can be reconciled with the vision of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la that entails that His deen should prevail over all other faiths and religions?

Even now, the antipathy to politics is playing the most damaging role to speed up the ongoing downfall of the Muslims. Such a conceptual collapse of the so-called ulama could only happen due to total deprivation of an ideological cum political understanding. It is their utmost intellectual incompetence that owes to their utter ignorance of Islam’s early history and its sociological and philosophical concepts. Because of such conceptual incompetence and ignorance, they proved totally unfit to have any leadership role in the Muslim World. They have totally withdrawn even from the ideological frontline and captured the back seats. Whereas in the early days of Islam, ruling and leading the ummah always remained the exclusive domain of the most religious people. As long as the prophet (peace be upon him) was alive, such a key role was always in his hand. After his death, the role was undertaken in succession by the next most religious man in the ummah –like the rightly guided four khalifa. Therefore, it is the legacy of the prophet (peace be upon him) and his rightly guided companions that the best Muslims must be in the central stage of the state and must take the driving seats in every steps of its governance, defence and expansion. Hence, withdrawal from the politics is indeed the betrayal of the core legacy of the prophet (peace be upon him) and his best companions. Such betrayal always causes the most disastrous consequence. In fact, because of such a betrayal, the whole Muslim World now stands seized from all sides by the worst enemies.

 

Crime of rejecting politics

Politics itself is the gateway to access control of the statecraft. The rulers indeed execute their policies through politics. For that, they use and abuse the state infrastructures. Hence, rejecting politics is itself rejecting a powerful tool; how Muslims could build the finest civilization on earth and emerge as the most powerful World Power without the power of the state craft. One can be saint sitting in tent or cave, but can’t become a builder of a civilization. Nor can he set values, implement law, give protection and deliver justice. Hence staying away from politics is a huge crime against the Muslim Ummah. It is the tool of de-empowerment of the Muslims. Such rejection of politics leaves a void to be taken over by the enemies without a fight. And such enemy occupation always caused awful havoc for the Muslims. This is why, the prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) needed to take away this powerful weapon from the enemies. It is indeed his great sunnah cum legacy of the prophet (peace be upon him). More than 70% companions of the prophet (peace be upon him) had to sacrifice their lives to achieve that. As a result, the state and its institutions were used as a powerful value-adding tool. The best humans in the whole history could be produced only because of such a state-supported value-adding process. In that effort, the holy Qur’an was used as the text book.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught not only the holy Qur’an, but also sociology, psychology, philosophy, history, politics, administration and other social sciences. His own teacher was All-knowing Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. In those days, there was no school or college in Arabia. His mosque-based school in Medina was the only teaching institute. And the prophet (peace be upon him) was its whole-time teacher. In those fateful days of Islam, the best governors, administers, judges and generals got their education and training in that mosque-based institute.  If the politics of manipulating the state power had been in the hand of evil forces, was it feasible for the prophet’s (peace be upon you) to operate such a Divine value-adding process in the midst of the kuffars.

It was the prophet’s (peace be upon you) sociological concept that every human is born as a pure Muslim, but grows up as a Muslim or a Christian or a Jew or an idolater depending on societal cum educational influence. Such a concept makes political, educational and cultural engineering indispensable for nurturing people with a specific moral mould. This is why, in humanising or dehumanising humans and in corrupting or correcting their characters, the social cum intellectual environment raised by the ruler and its political, cultural and educational institutions play the most decisive role. This is why, the state-run institutions of Pharaoh and the cultural milieu could make the people man-worshipping criminals. Likewise, the Indian Hindu rulers and the supportive priests could make the people cow, snake or idol worshipping psychopaths. But the success of the western imperialists and their institutions went further down the dehumanising route; they could make their people perfect ethnic cleanser, slave traders, gas chamber operators and atomic bombers. These flag bearers of modernity could kill 75 million people only in two World Wars.

 

Politics: the crucial tool

Whoever understands Islam and the prophetic concept, can’t ignore or detest politics. Politics is not only about ruling a country; it is also about governing the people’s faith, culture and life style. It is about framing constitutions, building institutions, enforcing laws, doing the good things and eradicating the evils. It is about educating the people, protecting and promoting the ideas, securing the securities for the citizens and the state. It is about mobilising the people, building and cementing the bondages, protecting the borders, making friends with the neighbours and conducting war against the enemies. Hence, politics is everywhere. It is about implementing Islam and promoting the Vision of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. It is all about ibadah. Without engaging in politics, how one can practise Islam? How can one implement sharia, hudud, shura, jihad and other obligatory Qur’anic basics? Politics is indeed embedded in every step of practising Islam. All great civilizational achievements in human history like human rights, women’s rights, abolition of slavery, abolition of colonialism, end of enemy occupation and many others owe to political actions of the people. The great iconic personalities of Islam like Imam Hussain (RA), Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Ahmed Hanbal, Imam Ibne Taimiyah, and many others had to suffer severe persecution; some of them even martyrdom, due to their political thoughts.

Whoever is insane can’t understand the worth of life-saving medicine; they even run away from the treatment. Those who are insane conceptually, they don’t behave differently either. They detest and keep themselves away from politics. It owes to their inadequacy of knowledge not only on political science but also on social sciences. Since such sciences are not taught in religious schools, such ignorance is quiet deeper among the so-called ulama. Hence they fail to realize that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his rightly guided khalifa were not only the religious leader; they were the political leader of the ummah, too. They were the head of the state. How a Muslim can reject their sunnah? Without engaging in politics, is it possible to be a full Muslim? In fact, the political training is indispensable to lead the Muslims wisely and successfully in the war-prone International arena. Otherwise, crippling incompleteness ensues. In fact, because of these incomplete Muslims, the Muslim Ummah has reached the current quagmire.

The Greek philosopher Aristotle described humans as the political animals. Politics is the science of organising, mobilising and governing societies and states for the continuous betterment of people’s lives. Civilizations are the outcome of such collective efforts of men and women. Such an instinct propels humans to sacrifice their time, wealth, energy, even life to bring changes in the country where they live. Animals do not possess such instinct, they survive only to eat, drink and to procure. Hence people with animal instinct can’t build any civilisation. A Muslim must possess the political instinct to fit into Islam’s own framework of vision, mission and objective. Only those who fit into the Vision of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la can engage in jihad and attain shahadah (martyrdom). The Vision is li’yuzhirahu aladdini kullihi; it means that His prescribed code of life (deen) should prevail over all other deens. That was true for the companions of the prophet (peace be upon him). That is why all of them joined jihad and majority of them attained shahada. But those who claim to be the traditional ulama or moderate Muslim they have taken a different path. In their path, there is no Islamic state, no jihad, no shahada and no place for sharia and khilafa. So, it runs far away from the path of the prophet (peace be upon him) and his rightly guided companions. So, no drone or missile falls on heads of these deviated pseudo-Muslims. Rather, all the despotic rulers of the Muslim countries keep their door open to welcome them. Even the enemies of Islam spread prayer mats for them.

 

The crime of inaction

In the golden days of Islam, building and defending an Islamic state called khilafa always occupied the central part of the Muslims’ agenda. They used to spend wealth, fight wars and sacrifice life for that. Today, it is a very peripheral issue of the common Muslims and a non-issue for the so-called ulama. Some people think casting a vote in every 4 of 5 years is enough to do the job. They have little or no role in islamisation of the state. As a result of such inaction, most of the Muslim states stay unfit or incapacitated to do any meaningful service to Islam and the Muslims. Inaction is not the part of Islam; Muslims pleases Allah Sub’hana wa Tala only through benevolent actions. Muhammad bin Qasim – a brave Muslim general hurried with his Army to save the oppressed Hindu people of Sind from a tyrant ruler. But now the Muslim rulers and their armies stand silent while the Muslims are persecuted in their neighbouring countries. Sometimes, they become part of the persecution. Such collaborator of evil are huge in the Muslim World. For example, the former Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf and his cronies collaborated with the US invasion in Afghanistan and helped arrest hundreds of innocent people to feed Guantanamo Bay prison. The former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak didn’t allow even the injured Muslims of Gaza to enter Egypt while they were heavily bombed by Israel. The Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina didn’t allow the boats of tormented Rohynga Muslims to get nearer to the sea shore of the country. And the Syrian and Iraqi refugees didn’t receive any easy access to Saudi Arabia and other oil-rich gulf states; as a result, they needed to sail their unsafe boat to cross the Mediterranean Sea. Thousands of them died on the way and many women were raped. These are the harsh reality of the Muslim World. It tells a lot about the total incompetence cum criminality of the rulers who now rule the Muslim World.

 

Unsafe even for the Muslims

Under any despotic rule, a Muslim state never works as a safe haven even for Islam and the Muslims. Instead, such a country, like any other kuffar country, turn equally hostile to full practice of Islam. And how one can practise full Islam without practising sharia, hudud, shura, khelafa and jihad. Islam as a complete code of life can never be fully practised in a hut, tent, cave or palace. It needs a conducive and enabling environment of an Islamic state. So, the prophet of Islam and his companions had to build a state. How can a Muslim ignore such a great legacy? Communism ceased to exist as a political power after the collapse of the Soviet Russia in 1991. Communism now survives only in the Marxist books. The same has happened to Muslims after the ruin of the core Islamic state. Now, sharia, hudud, shura, jihad, khilafa and other Divine prescriptions are found only in the holy Qur’an and in the books of Islamic fiq’h. These have no place in Muslims’ life; nor in any Muslim country! Surprisingly, after all these grotesque deviation from the prophet’s (peace be upon him) legacy, they still think Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la is pleased with them and they will enter paradise! In the holy Qur’an, Allah Sub’han wa Ta’la depicted the same funny belief of the Jewish people to warn such erroneous Muslims They were given sharia in Torah; they were asked to establish a state and practise sharia. They betrayed the decree of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. But still they claim that they are the chosen people of the Lord and will enter paradise. Allah Sub’han wa Ta’la never fulfill the wishful thinking of the rebels. 10/03/17




Betrayal of Iman & Showcasing of Disbelief by the Muslims

The abuse of rituals –

The enemies of Islam never preach idolatry to take the Muslims back to the old days of primitive ignorance. They use and abuse Islam’s obligatory rituals to divert them from the core objective of Islam. And the core objective of Islam is not to promote few selective pillars of Islam like five-time prayer, fasting, haj, etc. Rather, to build the whole house of Islam with full practice of all elements of the Qur’anic guidance. In fact, it is all about bringing an overwhelming victory of the Qur’anic code of life with its entirety over all brands of falsehood. Because, it is the only road map to save people from hellfire, nothing is more important for the mankind than working with this agenda.

But awfully, a lot of harms have already been done to the Muslims and to the mankind by abusing Islam’s own prescription. One of the 5 pillars of Islam is five-time daily prayer; but it is being badly abused not only to belittle other pillars, but also to dismantle the project of building the whole house of Islam. A prescription of a physician may contain a combination of 5 very important medicines to save a patient’s life –as it a common practice in treating a complicated disease. But, if anyone emphasize only one medicine and ignore the other four then it would be equal to inviting death to the patient. It is indeed a homicidal crime. The aim of the prescription is to save a life using all suggested medication; not to glorify a specific item. Likewise, a horrendous crime is going on against the holistic prescription of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la in the name of promoting five time prayer. The whole objective of Islam to move with its entire Qur’anic prescription; not to promote a single pillar –whatever important it may be. The whole house cum civilisation of Islam can’t be built on a few pillars. Along with the pillars, it also needs a huge infrastructure of an Islamic state and its numerous state institutions. It is so fundamental and so indispensable that the prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam and his companions didn’t make any mistake to understand its importance. In fact, here lies the greatest gap of understanding between the Muslims of early days and today. So the outcomes are also different. They could attain victory after victory. But, today, the Muslims are sliding to new low every day.

Example of using some pillars of Islam to undermine the others and even the whole project of Islam is huge. Works of an organisation called Tablighi Jama’at provide an illustrative example. Tablighi Jama’at has invented some new methodology –which were non-existent in prophet’s day, to distract the Muslims from some highly important Islamic obligations. Like the surge of sufism in the past, Tablighi Jama’at got a huge growth in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Malaysia and many other countries. Its main emphasis is to call the Muslims to the practice of five times prayer. The preachers of this organisation seldom talk about implementation of sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa, Islamic state and jihad. Surprisingly, they have no enmity even with the worst enemy of Islam. They have no quarrel even with the most corrupt and despotic governments of the Muslim countries. Bombs, chemical bombs, barrel bombs, drones and missiles are falling on Muslim men, women and children almost every day. Even many secularists and non-Muslims come to the streets to protest against them. But, they keep their eye blind and mouth tongue-tied vis-à-vis what is happening in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and many other Muslim countries. As if, they have seen nothing and have listened nothing. The same is true with the most of the imams, religious leaders and the common Muslims. In the name of focussing on prayers or other rituals, they stay blind on ongoing deaths, rapes and destruction in the Muslim World. They also pay blind eye on dismantling of sharia, hudud, khilafa, and the Muslim unity. Such self-imposed blindness or silence is highly punishable active crime, and will be awarded with eternal blindness in the hereafter. So, the warning comes, “And whoever is blind in this life, will also be blind in the Hereafter and more deviating from the way.” –(Sura Isra, verse 72).

In the past, sufism cum mysticism did the same terrible damage by deflecting the Muslims’ attention from the despotic corrupt rulers while they started grabbing the Muslim countries one after another and destroyed Islam’s civilizational mission. Even while the Mongol murderers were destroying Muslim cities and massacring men, women and children, they stayed blind. They didn’t come out of their homes and khanqas to take part in any jihad against the invaders. They caused a huge mass distraction in the name of purifying heart. What would be worst crime against Islam and the Muslims? The prophet (peace be upon him) didn’t leave such legacy. They built sufi khanqas and ran circles of zikr -as if it needs separate institutions to achieve purification. Whereas zikr is the part of Muslims’ life even while sitting, walking, working or lying in bed -as mentioned in the holy Qur’an (Sura al-Imran: verse 191). Zikr is all about remembering the mercy, glory and greatness of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Five time daily prayer, studying the holy Qur’an, fasting, haj, charity –in fact all acts of ibadah are zikr. And the greatest zikr takes place in jihad. Under the barrage of bullets, bombs, drones and missiles, zikr of a frontline mujahid gets oceanic depth. A parasitic sufi seating idle in his safe haven can’t even think of that.

Sufism and Tabligh Jamaat are in fact two blades of the same scissors. Tabligh Jamaat was started by the people like Sheikh Ilyas and Sheikh Zakaria of India. They didn’t hide that they were deeply influenced by sufism. In Sheikh Zakaria’s book “Fazayel-e-Amal”, he has been introduced by the publisher as a great sufi. These people and their organisations are indeed the part of the same social, cultural and religious engineering to keep the Muslims away from Qur’anic mission. This is why the most murderous rulers are very compatible with them. In response, they, too, do not blame these killers either. As if, condemning and protesting against any massacre or crime is not a part of iman! Whereas, protesting against any genocidal crime by all means is not mere politics, it is indeed the spontaneous expression of true iman. Appeasing the enemies is similar to feeding the crocodiles; it is indeed feeding the enemies’ political ambitions.

In India, even a non-political Muslims TV channel like Peace TV was closed down by the anti-Muslim BJP government, but Tabligh Jama’at is allowed to flourish. In Bangladesh, the secularist fascist government is carrying out every brutality against Islam’s resurgence. But Tabligh Jamaat is allowed not only to hold an assembly of more than 2 million people each year; but also given the full government co-operation. Every year, even the Prime Minister and the President of Bangladesh –who vehemently oppose any effort that can cause resurgence of Islam in the country, also join the supplication (munajat) part of the ijtima. Tablighi people visit millions of households each year to make people performer of five time daily prayers. But what is the impact of such door to door visits and massive annual congregation on the morality, politics and culture of the Bangladeshi people? In the history of Bangladesh, no other organisation could mobilise such a huge number of people to carry out its task. Such massive efforts are not helping the country to come out of the bracket of one of the most corrupt counties in the world. Moreover, the country has now entered into the darkest segment of its history under the rule of the most violent anti-Islamic fascists. Tabligh Jama’at itself now stands as an evidence that innovation doesn’t work. It can only cause huge wastage of time, money and energy. Moreover, it increases the deviation from prophet’s tradition.

 

The basics are ignored

First thing must be done first, and in Islam the first thing is iman (faith). No good deed –even not the sacrifice of life is acceptable to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la without im’an. Iman is the starting point of a Muslim’s life. But iman is not mere belief in Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la; rather the full integration with the objective, vision and mission of Allah Sub’han wa Ta’la. Even the idolaters of Arabian Peninsula believed in Allah and named their children’s name as Abdullah (slave of Allah), Abdur Rahman, etc. But in practice they integrated with the ancient falsehood and did war against His sovereignty, His great prophet and His revealed law. The same arrogance now overwhelms the Muslim World against the fundamental basic of Islam like sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa, jihad and pan-Islamic Muslim brotherhood. Iman, taqwa and jihad go together in Muslims’ life. Iman, taqwa and jihad in His way can get nourishment and sustenance only from Divine knowledge; hence seeking such knowledge was made compulsory on the day one of the revelation of the holy Qur’an. Five-time prayers, month-long fasting and haj were made obligatory more than a decade later. Im’an, taqwa and jihad work together as the most powerful engine in a believer’s journey towards paradise. It also sets the true direction and agenda in life. Otherwise, other religious rituals can’t save people from hellfire.

 

After a failed encounter against Prophet Musa (peace be upon him), the magicians who brought im’an in Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la were cut into pieces by the order of Pharaoh. But such terrible torture couldn’t distract them from faith. Minutes before, they were fully disbeliever and engaged in sin. But the power of their iman was so forceful that it quickly transformed them to 100 per cent believer and made them shaheed. The depth of their im’an impressed Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la so much that He mentioned the event several times in the holy Qur’an and raised their status as the model of true im’an for all people in all ages to come. Although they didn’t get any chance to offer a single unit of prayer, but their strong im’an did the job fully to please Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. But those who perform rituals like 5 time prayer, month-long fasting, haj, and give charities throughout the whole adult life, how many of them attain such impressive iman? In fact, here lies the greatest deficit in Muslims’ life. Iman has lost the true importance amidst rituals.

Hence, im’an and its implication must be understood first before understanding any other pillar of Islam. Without perfection of im’an, one can’t perform rituals like prayers, haj, fasting or others with the required perfection. Even a munafiq can take part in rituals –as was the case at the time of the prophet (peace be upon him). They didn’t need any iman for that. They were the embedded enemies. This moral disease has always been endemic in all ages; but now has reached a diabolic prevalence. With such disease, people get easily deviated from the Qur’anic roadmap. They become friend of the worst enemies of Islam; and get quickly complicit in their crimes. Truly, this is the case with millions of so-called Muslims in the Muslim World, now. So, the US-led coalition could kill more than 1 million people in Afghanistan and Iraq with their complicity. And the Russia-led coalition is running the similar massacre in Syria. Hence, it is the strategy of the enemies of Islam to destroy im’an of a believer first; not his rituals like 5 times prayer, month-long fasting, haj or zakat. Even the White House and the Kremlin staffs spread prayer mat and offer iftari; but they drop bombs and send drones to kill those who nurture im’an on sharia, hudud, khelafat, jihad, Islamic state and global unity of the Muslims.

Like any disease, the moral disease has also its starting point. It starts with the lie in the declaration of ima’an. More than a billion of Muslims claim that they believe in Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and His prophet (peace be upon him). But how perfect and how sincere is the belief? Belief in Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and His prophet (peace be upon him) is an indivisible package. Islam is all about believing and practising all components of the package. There can’t be any disbelief or compromise in any single element of that. Im’an is inclusive and comprehensive. It is the source of light in believers’ everyday life; and shows the Qur’anic straight path (siratul mustaqeem) in every segments of his journey. It is the firm belief not only in the oneness of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’ala, but also in the truthfulness of His prophet’ legacy. It is also the belief in the supremacy of His Sovereignty, His revealed Book –the holy Qur’an, and the Qur’anic prescription of sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa, trans-ethnic Muslim unity, migration and jihad in His way. Iman also entails the belief in the Qur’anic decree of enjoining the right and eradicating the wrong (a’maru bil ma’ruf wa nehi’anil munkar) –as the prescribed mission for every Muslim.

 

The belief in the prophet (peace be upon him) is also inclusive. His legacy includes not only the preaching of Islam, but also the establishment of an Islamic state. And, he was also the Head of the State. Hence abiding by his tradition entails the practice of his state policy in education, politics, warfare, administration, laws, people’s welfare, judiciary, and other practices. His legacy also includes jihad fi sabilillah to defend and expand the territory of the Islamic State. A Muslim also needs to believe in the Qur’anic revelation that obeying the prophet (peace be upon him) is obeying Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la –as revealed in the holy Qur’an “Whoever obeys the prophet, he indeed obeys Allah” –(Sura Nisa, verse 80). Hence, a Muslim must stick to prophet’s legacy; it is an obligation. But if his politics, culture, law, judiciary, economics, state institutions, administration and warfare follow his own obsession or footsteps of the enemy, how can he claim to be a Muslim?

 

Showcasing of the disease and the disbelief!

The best way of marketing a product is to showcase it in a market place; otherwise even the best product can’t catch the public eye. The same is true with Islam. Hence Islam can’t be practised in caves; and nor in a place where showcasing of its beauty is restricted. So, migration from such a state is a great ibadah in Islam. The greatest preacher in the human history like Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) couldn’t convert more than 200 hundred people in his 13 years’ of hard work in Makkah. But when he could showcase the blessing of Islamic state, education, sharia, hudud, social welfare, culture, judiciary and trans-ethnic brotherhood in Medina, a huge mass conversion started. Within a decade Islam appeared as the number one World Power. Other great prophets like Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) and Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) couldn’t attain that success because they were not allowed by the evil forces to showcase the Truth. Shaitan and his followers understand the strength of such strategy; so it is their key objective not to allow the Muslims to showcase the beauty of Islam in the form of a full-fledged Islamic state. Rather, they allow only to showcase the disease and disbeliefs of the fake Muslims. Therefore, like protecting the rare animal species, the US-led enemies of Islam are protecting the most despotic corrupt Muslim rulers as the model of Islam in the world. So their disbelief and disease get showcased on the global stage as Islam. The call this ugly perversion as the moderate or mainstream Islam.

Both belief and disbelief in Islam have their own distinctive expressions. Iman (belief) of a true believer expresses through his good deeds –as fire expresses through its heat. So, in the holy Qur’an, iman and amal-us-saleh (good deeds) are mostly mentioned together –as if they are the twin expressions of a believer. Thus, a Muslim turns into a showcase of true Islam. Only this way the early Muslims could work as powerful magnets to attract millions of people to Islam; otherwise they didn’t have any propaganda machinery. But now, they are doing the opposite. They have turned into ugly showcase of moral disease and disbelief. True iman, sharia, hudud, khilafa, shura, pan-Islamic Muslim brotherhood, jihad have no place in that showcase.  Rather, divisive walls, racial hatred, extrajudicial killings, parochialism, nationalism, secularism, despotism, and corruptions are the parts of it. This way they are serving the cause of Shaitan.

In absence of showcasing of true Islam, millions of visits by Tablighi workers at the doorsteps of the people have utterly failed to make any discernible impact. They are very selective to talk about im’an, yakeen and ibadah, and not about sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa, jihad and Islamic state –as if these are not part of Islam. But this selective and restrictive prescription on Islam has failed to bring any visible change in the behaviour, actions, attitude, politics, and culture of the Muslim ummah –even not in the Muslim life in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan where they are in huge number. Is it the aim of Islam to make some big ijtama and putting more volunteers on the street to call people only to five time prayer? Was it the practice of the prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) and the early Muslims?

If iman and yakeen do not have visible expression in deeds, politics, culture, behaviour of people, do they really exist? They fail to understand that changing people’s beliefs, behaviour, actions, attitude, politics, and culture is a massive task. Prophet Nuh (peace be upon him) worked day and night for 950 years, but with little gain. Spending few minutes in a group in reciting Fadayel-e-Amal (the commonly recited book of Tabligh Jama’at) or listening short lectures by laymen or long munajat by bujurgs (old sheikhs) is not going to make any big difference. That didn’t work in the past either. The same is true about thousands of non-political Islamic organisations working in the Muslim World. It needs to engage in massive social, cultural, educational, political engineering. For that, a powerful Islamic state with its various massive organisational infrastructures are indispensable. Only then, a state becomes the most powerful value-adding industry on earth; then citizens turn into the most refined and the civilised humans –as was the case in the early days of Islam. Only because of such an Islamic state, the early Muslims could raise the only true civilisation on earth. And indeed, this was the highest achievement in the whole length of human history. For establishing such a state, the early Muslims had to pay the price. More than 70 percent of the prophet’s (peace be upon him) companions needed to become shaheed. And, the prophet (peace be upon him) and his rightly guided khalifas needed to be the head of the state. That is the greatest and the most important legacy of the prophet (peace be upon him) and his great companions. How can a true Muslim deny or ignore that? But now, the Muslims are paying a heavy price, too. That is to spread and defend the virus of moral disease and disabilities. By their own money, efforts and blood, they indeed serve the enemies and indeed feed the engine of their own downfall. 08/04/2017
