The Moral Disability & the Downfall of the Muslims
The moral disability & its fallout –
The most important cause of Muslims’ downfall is not any natural disaster or economic collapse or any epidemic of a killer disease. It is indeed the moral disability that has brought them to the current quagmire. Such disability even kills any fresh attempt to rise up as a civilizational force on earth. If not treated, the ongoing disability can bring moral death. Then, a man survives only as an animal with human shape. None of the physical disabilities brings such a disgraceful end to a man or woman. In the history of mankind, such disabilities caused catastrophic calamities –much worse than any earthquake, epidemic or tsunamis. Hundreds of earthquakes or epidemics couldn’t kill 75 million people; but only two World Wars could kill more than that. The ugliest crimes on earth like colonial genocides, imperialist occupations, ethnic cleansings, slave trading, gas chambers, World Wars, and dropping of barrel bombs, chemical bombs, drones and nuclear bombs are indeed the works of these morally disables.
Moral disability takes humans to a level much inferior to animals; animals do not show such deviation from their own path or style of survival. The Qur’anic narratives like “in hum illa ka’al an’am, bal hum adallu sabila –(Sura: al-Furqan, verse: 44)” (meaning: they are nothing but as cattle, rather they are deviated farther off from the path) gives testimony to that. The annals of history abundantly display such terrible ills. Like animal, such ill people become insensitive to Truth; even miracles make no impact on them. Cattle search only for water, grass and grazing fields; they do not ponder on Truth. Hence, the miracles like resurrection of the dead, talking while in the cradle, cure of the born-blind, walking across the sea, foods coming down from the sky, water gushing out of a stone -as shown by Prophet Isa (peace be upon him), and Prophet Musa (peace be upon him), utterly failed to impress them. For the same reason, today, the morally disabled Muslims are turning a blind eye to the horrendous crimes of the imperialists against the Muslims. So, the killers, the occupiers and the bombers are taken as close friends. Even millions of Muslims registrar as the mercenaries to fight their war.
No nation collapsed or disappeared from the history for any physical disability. It is the moral collapse or lewdness that destroyed many nations in the past; and ruined the Muslims as the civilizational power. What could be the worst disgrace for the Muslims that many Muslim countries stand top in the list of the most corrupt countries in the world! What is the impact of their faith and prayers? About 1.6 billion Muslims claim that they believe in Islam; more than a billion take part in five-time daily prayer and month-long fasting in Ramadan; and several millions perform haj and umrah each year; but that couldn’t help them to come out of awful moral illness. It owes to a total shift in their agenda of survival. They do not bother about their moral failures. They are so much deluded with the pleasure of worldly gains that corruption has become the common tool of their survival. Hence, “enjoining the right and eradicating the wrong (a’maru bil ma’ruf wa nehi’anil munkar)” – the obligatory Qur’anic mission, enjoys little importance in their practical life. Instead, they are engaged exactly in the opposite mission; so they relish corruption, crimes and even serving in the enemy armies.
Such a shift in the purpose of survival has generated a new set of self-serving priorities and political culture at all levels. This is why, even the worst despots do not face any shortage of supporters on the street of the Muslim countries. Even those who are known as imams, sheikhs and religious scholars also rub their shoulder with them. A’maru bil ma’ruf wa nehi’anil munkar is not an issue for them. And sharia, hudud, khilafa, and jihad have no place in their life. The Muslims thus display the vilest betrayal of the Cause of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. It tells a lot about the severity of their moral illness. How can such betrayal bring any blessing from Him? Awfully, it has fully incapacitated them to understand even the dire consequences of the disease. Hence, how could Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la select such sick people to accomplish His Own vision? So, the Muslims now stand unseated from the position of His khalifa. They show fitness only to work as khalifa of the internal and external enemies of Islam!
The best deed & the worst crime
Moral disease is the commonest and the most calamitous disease of the mankind. Even the physically fit people are not immune to it. Now, it prevails as a global epidemic. Awfully, the damage is eternal; hence more than billion times awful than any worst cancer. Not only it inflicts a catastrophic damage to the worldly life, but also takes the diseased men or women to eternal hellfire. The virus of the disease is conceptual. Hence, the disease run through thoughts, beliefs and ideologies. Since the pathology lies in soul, can be treated only by curative thoughts, beliefs and ideologies –as was the methodology of all Divine prophets. For that, the holy Qur’an exist as the only final prescription. In the history of mankind, only the holy Qur’an has proven the full treatment efficacy; as treated successfully one of the most morally diseased people on earth 14 hundred years ago. No other prescription has shown similar success in any part of the world in any time. In fact, here lies the greatest and the unique strength of Islam. It possesses the most important and the only curative prescription for the moral ills of the mankind. This is why, Islam is the only target of all satanic forces on earth. In the whole length of human history, never worked such a huge global coalition against any faith as it is now against resurgence of Islam.
The deprivation of Divine knowledge is lethal; it leads to death of soul. It is indeed the greatest catastrophe in an individual’s life and also for the destiny of the mankind. Men and women then survive only as a biological entity; but possess full physical ability to commit the worst crime. Thus they possess the full potentials to add worst calamities not only to their own lives, but also to others. The world enters into disastrous wars and World Wars only because of such morally dead people. So, it is the most important task on earth to remove this deprivation of Divine knowledge. People can grow cattle, grains, fruits and vegetables, but can’t grow food for soul. It is the exclusive domain of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Hence, He sent down the angel with the Divine knowledge to His apostles to address this crucial issue. And the holy Qur’an survives as the final and the only unadulterated source of such knowledge. So, it is the only life line of moral survival of the whole mankind. Hence it is the greatest deed to adhere to this Qur’anic knowledge. And it is greatest crime to get delinked from that life line of Qur’anic knowledge. So, the prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam therefore said, “Those who learn Qur’an and teach Qur’an are the best people on earth”. Hence, Islam has a crucial role to play.
The ancient ignorance as a religion
The denial of cure of the moral ills has other calamities; it becomes the satanic obsession to live with the disease. Then, it thrives as a culture. Such culture may even survive as a religion –as happened in India. This is why, the most primitive falsehood like idolatry, cow worshipping, snake worshipping, river worshipping and such other practices could survive as a powerful popular culture in India through millenniums. Such cultural cum religious bulwark could effectively protect the falsehood against the Qur’anic Truth during six hundred years’ Muslim rule in India. Billions of dollars are being spent in India every year to build and maintain temples, seminaries and other cultural institutions to strengthen such cultural fortification. It has also proven that false propaganda could do miracles; it could promote idols, cows, monkeys and snakes to the rank of goddess. And in such jingoistic cultural milieu, slaughtering cows is a punishable crime but not massacring the Muslims or demolishing mosques. The people thus take huge pride in becoming the defender of falsehood. Therefore, those who want to survive with falsehood and defy Truth –
The replication of Indian kufr
Since the ancient ignorance could survive in India even in modern days with its primitive originality, India works as the perfect model for those who want to sustain their ignorance and to stand against Islam. Now the Indian model of cultural fortification against the resurgence of Islam is being replicated all over the Muslim World. Since conversion to idol worshipping, cow worshipping, or snake worshipping doesn’t work in the Muslim World, the enemies of Islam have deployed other hybrid strategies. The fortification against resurgence of Islam is being done in the form of a cocktail of nationalism, regionalism, traditionalism, secularism, racism, monarchism, tribalism and other parochial obsessions. Every day, they are inventing new means of distraction from Islamic revival. Billions of dollars are being spent in such projects in the Muslim countries.
To replicate such an Indian strategy, thousands of institutions are built and given sustenance by the anti-Islamic global coalition in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Palestine, Iraq, Syria and other Muslims countries to run dance, drama, sports and music classes. As if, these are the causes of Muslims’ downfall and miseries! As a part of the project, the former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif became a great fan of kite flying and Diwali. In Bangladesh, the secularists and the nationalists have become very chauvinistic with the spring festival, the New Year festival, the Valentine day celebration along with other festivals. Very recently they have started with light worshipping in the name of so-called mangal prodip (the lamp of good fortune). To make it integrated with the on-going anti-Islamic cultural cum ideological engineering, the hard core secularists are asking to make it obligatory in the school curriculum. The Afghans and Kurds are being fuelled with the new sense of pride and festivity on the occasion of Nowruz. And in the Arab World, the people are being encouraged to get anchored to their local tribal traditions. The Egyptians are told by the country’s autocratic ruler to celebrate the ancient heritage of Pharaoh and keep distance from the prophetic teachings of Islamic state, khilafa, shura, sharia, hudud, jihad and the pan-Islamic brotherhood. This way, the cultural tide of old jaheliya that could keep the people tightly anchored to the ancient belief and practices of falsehood in India and other parts of the world are now showing heavy resurgence in the Muslim World.
The calamity of moral death
So the prognosis appears very gloomy; every day the Muslims are drifting to a new low. The physical disabilities may make people frail to do anything good or bad; but that doesn’t kill the moral ability to know the right from the wrong. Nor does it destroy the ability to worship the Almighty Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Hence, the physically ill people can still pursue the straight path towards the paradise. But, moral disability brings the worst calamity; much worse than a wild cancer. It kills the soul and the morality. Thus, it destroys the whole ability of a man or woman to align with the project of Islam. Islam wants that every human must live with the Divine Truth. He or she must work as a witness as well as the defender of the Truth. In one’s life, nothing is more important than getting integrated with such Divine project. For that, he or she is called khalifa of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la, and his job turns into a life-long jihad. And those who dies in defending the Truth is called shaheed –the greatest honour that a man can achieve in his life.
A seed can’t grow on a stone; it needs fertile soil and water for that. Likewise, the Qur’anic Truth can’t flourish on a dead soul. This is why, recital and memorisation of the holy Qur’an doesn’t help those who are morally dead or disable. In fact, the powerful Qur’anic verses are falling on many of these dead souls. Of millions who recite the holy Qur’an every day, a very few could come out as the defender of Truth. Such people make themselves unfit for any Divine guidance. Proclaiming belief in Islam and reciting Qur’an is not enough, it has other implication. A believer must live with the assigned mission. Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la reveals His Own disappointment on those who distract from the belief and disengage from the assigned mission. So, He reveals, “How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and has witnessed that the Messenger is true and clear signs had come to them and Allah does not guide the oppressors?” –(Sura al-Imran, verse 86).
Such distraction from Islamic belief and its mission is indeed the most common disease among the Muslims. Such disease makes them morally sick, hypocrite and wrongdoer. Moreover, it makes them morally incompetent to stand for the Divine Truth. Whereas, a Muslim must show his readiness and competence not only in standing for five time prayers and other rituals; but also for sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa and other basics of Islam –as was the practice of every companions of the prophet. Such readiness and competence are indeed the expression of true iman and work as the bench mark of a true Muslim in all ages. Only this way, a Muslim can pass the obligatory tests in this life and enter paradise. About the test, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la reveals, “Do you think that you will enter paradise while Allah has not yet known those who did jihad among you and those who are steadfast?” –(Sura al-Imran, verse 142).
Incompetence to stand for Islam doesn’t build up alone; it makes people directly or indirectly complicit in serious crime against Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. People then work as mercenaries in the army of enemies, as happened in almost every occupational war of the enemies in the Muslim lands –as happening now in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan. Because of such blatant complicity of the Muslims in crime against Islam, the Muslims have lost many vital things. Sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa, trans-ethnic Muslim ummah and other qur’anic basics have become non-existent in the Muslim World. Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la never recruits witness (shuhada) or defender (mujahid) for His deen from these morally dead or disable people. Nor does He guide these people towards the paradise. Hence come the repeatedly pronounced Qur’anic warnings:“la’yahdi’Allahu qaomazzalimeen”,“la’yahdi’Allahu qaomal ka’firun”,“la’yahdi’Allahu qaomal munafiqun”,“la’yahdi’Allahu qaomal fasiqun” (meaning: Allah doesn’t guide the oppressors, the disbelievers, the hypocrites and the wrongdoers). And, those who are deprived of His guidance, they can only pursue a path towards the eternal hellfire. Therefore, downfall in this world is not the only calamity; the worst awaits in the hereafter.
