Downfall of the Muslims: A Review (Part-7)
An invincible immunity is crucial for survival in an environment embedded with millions of lethal bugs and viruses. Hence, the Almighty Allah –the Most Merciful, has blessed every man and woman with an inbuilt system of immunity. An effective defence barrier with highly potential cellular and biochemical weapons exist in every part of the body against any invading toxic agents. Similar defensive immunity is also crucial for healthy conceptual or ideological survival of a believer. Otherwise, his mind gets quickly occupied by corrosive beliefs and ideas. Such ideas quickly kills iman. This is why, colonisation of the Muslim mind always receives the highest priority in enemies’ ideological warfare against Islam and the Muslims. Hence the enemy bombing campaign or occupation is always accompanied by powerful propaganda war. The European colonialists always launch such invasive project from day one of their occupation of the Muslim lands. In fact, Islam now stands defeated in every Muslim country not for any sustained military or political occupation; but for deep colonisation of the Muslim minds. Because of such intellectual occupation by evil ideas, Islam doesn’t stand victorious even in Muslims’ conceptual premise, let alone overwhelm in other arenas.
Proper nutrition and vaccination help immensely to enhance the body’s immunity. A man with enhanced immunity can walk safely even amidst the infected people with killer bugs and viruses. The HIV (Human Immune Deficiency Virus) does the opposite. It causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) and brings death by dismantling the body’s protective immune barrier. As a result, millions of opportunistic bugs that live normally and silently on the body surface quickly get access deep inside the body and speed up the dying process. Similar immunity lapse has developed in the ideological cum conceptual premise of the Muslims. As a consequence, there exists little or no barrier in most of the Muslim minds against the wicked ideologies like racism, tribalism, nationalism, secularism, capitalism, socialism, fascism and many other toxic ideas. Hence, instead of Islam, these illicit ideologies get practised in most of the Muslim countries. So, the Muslim countries make little or no difference from a non-Muslim country in practising kufr, shirk, hypocrisy and betrayal against the commands of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la.
Against Islam, the imperialists now gives enormous importance to ideological warfare. They call it Cold War. They have seen its efficacy against the Soviet socialist bloc. Islam is the next target. The western imperialists deployed only its ideological weaponry to dismantle the United Soviet Socialist Russia (USSR); and needed not to fire a single bullet to dissolve this nuclear World Power. But against the Muslims, the imperialists’ war is two-pronged; they are fighting both militarily and ideologically. It is indeed the intensification of the same old war that started about thousand years ago in the name of Crusade. The European colonialists never stopped by mere military occupation of the Muslim lands; rather continued with colonisation of the Muslim mind, too. Now, such project has received further re-enforcement through an aggressive western media all over the world. The ongoing socio-political engineering is also an important part of it. The secularist governments of the Muslim countries also work as the close partners of such project.
AIDS dismantles the bodily immunity; therefore brings physical death. But, the ideological invasion of the enemies destroys the intellectual cum conceptual immunity; hence cause spiritual death. Since, Qur’anic knowledge is the lifeline of iman; the imperialists and their native mercenaries could inflict a lethal blow to iman by restricting the Qur’anic education and destroying the Islamic institutions in the occupied Muslim lands. In fact, it has always been the key strategy of all anti-Islamic forces in the Muslim lands. Moreover, it has never been a hidden strategy of the enemy. Mr. William Gladstone -the nineteenth century British Prime Minister and a prominent promoter of colonialism and imperialism, very emphatically told in the Parliament that unless the Muslims are taken away from the Qur’an, they can’t be brought under the British rule. He didn’t make any mistake to realise that the holy Qur’an makes the Muslims totally incompatible with the kuffars’ ideologies and rule. Therefore, the colonialists’ war of occupation was not aimed at cleansing the Muslim lands of the Muslims; but to cleanse their minds of the Qur’anic teachings. And, the project still continues.
The ideological cleansing
A man’s vision, mission, objective, deeds, attitude, behaviour, culture, politics and warfare are indeed the exact expression of his conceptual model. It is equally true for a Muslim, too. The immense importance of such a conceptual model is revealed in the following Qur’anic verse: “Tell (O Muhammad), every one acts according to his (conceptual) model (shakela) and your Lord best knows who is rightly guided.” –(Sura Isra, verse 84). For a Muslim, his conceptual model is fully based on the teaching of the holy Qur’an. If such internal model of his belief pattern gets dismantled, no more one can survive as a true Muslim; rather becomes a kafir or munafiq. The importance of occupying the conceptual premise is not unknown to the enemies. Hence, they occupy not only the Muslim lands; but also the Muslim minds. And, cleansing the Muslim mind of the Qur’anic teaching is indeed their topmost agenda. Therefore, the Muslims’ fate for survival as a true Muslim is not decided on the prayer mats, rather by their ability to defend the Islamic state and their conceptual territory. But the Muslims have terribly failed on both. So, in Islam, jihad is so crucial; spending few minutes in jihad is more valuable than whatever exist on earth.
What the colonialists did in the past, now the US-led imperialist coalition is doing the same all over the Muslim World. Not only bombs, drones and missiles are added to their arsenal; billions of dollar are also invested to enhance Muslims’ deviation from the Qur’anic road map. The teaching curriculum of the Muslim countries are strictly under their rudder. They have enforced tight restriction on teaching and learning of the holy Qur’an not only in schools, madrasahs and mosques but also in all media, public discourses and seminars.
Absence of sharia, hudud, shura, jihad, khilafa and other Islamic basics in the Muslims’ life clearly demonstrates how badly they have lost the ideological war. It shows total ideological collapse. In fact, the imperialists’ coercive cum manipulative strategy has been very successful to cause a deep ideological cleansing of the Muslim mind. During the long colonial era, the enemies used and abused the whole education system as a massive tool to take the Muslims away from the holy Qur’an. They even established religious madrasahs to corrupt the Muslims intellectually. They could also raise even a huge army of ulama, mullah and Muslim intellectuals to serve their cause. According to Hanafi school of thought, on day one of the enemy occupation, jihad become obligatory on the Muslims of the occupied land. But, because of ideological cleansing, the Muslims show little commitment or motivation for such jihad.
The ideological cleansing has other sinister consequences. It brings not only deviation from the right path –siratul mustaqeem; but also generates deep distaste to know the right path –as shown in the holy Qur’an. Instead of seeking knowledge on the holy Qur’an, mere recitation gets the priority. They even think that understanding of the holy Qur’an is the exclusive domain of the ulama. To make it worse, the subservient governments of the Muslim countries work as partners of such project.
Al-Qur’an is the only book of true Divine guidance. Therefore, without understanding it, how one can get the Divine guidance? In fact, it is the ugliest criminal neglect of the greatest gift of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Such a neglect of the holy Qur’an can only leave a man with no choice but to seek guidance from kufr -like the western ideas, laws, politics, and economics. Even the political maps of the Muslim countries are made by the enemies. Such a deviated state of the Muslims can only please Shaitan.
Seeking Qur’anic knowledge is obligatory on every Muslim man and woman; not only on the imams, ulama, and sheikhs. Ignorance makes it impossible for any human to stay in the true path; hence it is a major sin. It is revealed: “Among all His servants, only those who are filled with the knowledge (of Qur’an) are the ones who truly fear Allah.” –(Sura Fatir, verse 28). Hence, for becoming an Allah-fearing Muslim, one must be a man of Qur’anic knowledge. This is why, every companion of the prophet (peace be upon him) was a great a’lim. Moreover, how a seeker of the true path can ignore or stay ignorant of the only treasure of true guidance on earth? Such guidance can’t be acquired by mere rote recitation or memorisation; it needs proper understanding. This is why, in the holy Qur’an, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la has repeatedly asked for tafah’hum (understanding), tawaq’qul (contemplation), tadab’bur (pondering) on the Qur’anic revelation.
More disastrous than AIDS
Any distaste against the understanding of the holy Qur’an can only increase the deviation from straight path and can take people directly to the hellfire. Those who ignore the understanding of the holy Qur’an, Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la is very explicit on them. They are labelled as deaf, dumb, and blind; even called inferior to the cattle. The early Muslims could excel as the followers of the straight path only because of their deep Qur’anic knowledge. In those days, the thirst for seeking guidance from Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la’s revelation was so intense that those who were from the non-Arab countries like Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Sudan, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Mali and many others left their mother tongue and embraced Arabic as their own language. Whereas, in those days, there was no school, college or government institute to do the job.
As a result of long colonial occupation, the Muslims went far away from the Qur’anic guidance. Hence, they fail very badly to grow up as true Muslim. The fallout of such a failure is catastrophic; more disastrous than AIDS or any killer disease. AIDS and other killer diseases do not take people to the hellfire; but the conceptual perversion cum moral death definitely takes them there for an infinity. The European colonialists allowed the Muslims only to live with rituals like 5 time prayers, month long fasting, haj and charity; but not with Islam’s project of educational, cultural and socio-political engineering –as was the key tradition of the prophet (peace be upon him). Rather, they started their own state-run project of de-Islamisation. They raised educational, cultural and political institutions as tools to vaccinate the Muslims with various evil ideologies. They also heavily embedded the Muslim countries with the wicked institutions of evil like pubs, clubs, prostitution, gambling, dancing, sports, and riba-based banks and other civil and military institutions. Those who are raised and trained in such institutions developed strong immunity against the core concept of Islam. Due to such deep de-Islamisation, the wicked ideologies like secularism, tribalism, racism, nationalism, socialism, capitalism, fascism and hedonism got strong base and huge clientele even in the Muslim majority countries.
The direct enemy occupation of Muslim lands has ended. But the same evil occupation still survives by the hands of the native mercenaries. Therefore, the enemy project of corrupting and colonising the Muslim minds still continues. These native mercenaries work as the major ideological cum political bulwark against the resurgence of Islam in any part of the Muslim World. Because of them, those who violently oppose the implementation of Islamic basics in Muslim countries are not the infidels; they are the de-Islamised local Muslims. Wherever, these local mercenaries face defeat, their imperialist masters are very quick to dispatch the heavy re-enforcement. It goes to the credit of the local mercenaries that they could successfully foil any effort of implementation of Islam in the Muslim lands. This way, they could raise their servile usefulness in the eyes of the enemies.
The Sunnah of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la
Humans’ journey towards hellfire doesn’t start for a disease in any of the body parts; rather it owes entirely to a disease in the conceptual premise. The only treatment is through enlightenment with the Divine Truth. Only this way, one can fortify his own defensive immune barrier against evil. So, it has been the strategy of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la to accomplish the first thing first. He sent thousands of prophet and revealed Divine Books to address this critical issue. And, the holy Qur’an is the final Divine prescription to do the same. Hence, learning the holy Qur’an was made the first and the most important obligation for every believer since its revelation; rituals like five times prayer, fasting in Ramadan and haj were made obligatory more than a decade later. The holy Qur’an is the source of Divine Light; it shows right path even in deep darkness. Because of the Qur’anic enlightenment, the early Muslims could strengthen their souls; and could raise enough resistance and fighting spirit against the falsehood. As a result, even in kuffar environment of Makkah, the diseases like idolatry, adultery, vulgarity, obscenity, racism, tribalism, and others evil dogmas couldn’t touch their souls. Thus, the conceptual premise of the early Muslim remained heavily protected from enemy occupation. In fact, this worked as the moral foundation of all great successes of the early Muslims.
The Divine Truth has always shown its massive strength in raising people’s immunity against falsehood. Because of that, a true believer in Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la never gets meltdown in a kuffar society. This is why, Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) could stand alone and declare war against Nimrod and his whole tribe. And Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) could stand in front of brutal tyrant like Pharaoh. Because of similar immunity, the early Muslims in Makkah could roam amidst the vulgar idolaters and their obscenity without an iota of influence. In absence of such resistance, melting down into the dominant political and ideological milieu becomes the rule. Now, such a melting down phenomenon is indeed working not only among the Muslims living in non-Muslim countries, but also among those who live in the Muslim majority countries. This is why, tribalism, nationalism, secularism, fascism, monarchism, despotism and other evil ideologies could get massive followers even among the Muslims. Because of such moral collapse, hubs like pubs, clubs, riba-based banks, prostitution enclaves and secular political parties could attract huge number of clients even in Muslim societies. In prophet’s (peace be upon him) time, could anyone ever imagine such inclination of the Muslims to evils?
The Muslim enmity against Islam
In some diseased conditions, the human body even fails to discriminate its own cells from the cells of the invading bugs. In such misplaced immunity, the body’s own organs is perceived foreign and get badly damaged. It is called autoimmune disease. Similarly, the self-harming severe conceptual state runs very high in the Muslim ummah. The disease has gone to the extent that the Muslims have turned themselves the worst enemy of the Muslims and Islam. In the early days of Islam, the Muslims fought series of wars for defending the Islamic state –established and headed by the prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam himself. More than 60 per cent the companions sacrificed their life such holy combat. Because of their huge sacrifice, the Islamic state could showcase the beauty of sharia, hudud, shura, trans-ethnic unity, jihad, khilafa and other Qur’anic prescription; hence could create a strong trend of mass conversion to Islam. The state and its various infrastructures worked as the powerful instruments for social engineering to embed Islam’s core teaching and values in the heart and mind of the new Muslims. Thus, the Islamic state worked as a powerful vehicle to take people to the paradise.
But now, the priority has changed. The Muslims now fight wars, sacrifice lives and establish state with an exact opposite purpose. They fight wars in coalition with the kuffars to stop emergence of any Islamic state. Instead of implementing sharia, they showcase kuffar law in their judiciary. They celebrate the divisive walls, borders and flags of the Muslim lands, instead of dismantling them. They even welcome the enemies in the Muslim lands and ask them to bomb the Muslim cities and villages –as seen in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. Instead of showcasing Islam, they showcase racism, nationalism, secularism, fascism, despotism, monarchism and other evil ideologies through their constitution, administration, state media and politics. Betrayal against the Qur’anic agenda thus has become the politics of the Muslims.
Such betrayal against one’s own faith doesn’t exist anywhere among the kuffars. Even the illiterate idolaters of an Indian village know the exact meaning and implication of idolatry. So, they do not do any compromise in the practice of their religion; so the primitive ignorance (jaheliyah) like idolatry could thrive even in modern India. Hence the most devout worshippers of idols, cows, snakes, monkeys and staffs could easily defeat the modern secularists in general election; and could become the Prime Minister, the Chief Minister or MP in India by popular votes. On the other hand, Islam stays as the most misunderstood as well as the most betrayed religion by its own followers. Such misunderstanding cum betrayal is even much deeper among the mullahs, the imams and the religious leaders. So, in most of the Muslim countries, in order to get any electoral victory, one receives impetus from his own followers to get secularised and de-linked from Islam. The Qur’anic Islam –as was practised by the prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam and his companions, stands alien and ignored even in the Muslim lands.
Such a milieu of betrayal and misunderstanding has twisted even the leaders and the activists of the so-called Islamic parties to entirely shift their political agenda. As a result, the Qur’anic vocabularies like sharia, shura, hudud, khilafa, jihad and many others are dropped from their intellectual or religious discourse, let alone struggling for the implementation. The fear of evil forces -not the fear of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la, has influenced to bring such political swing. While inside the mosque or standing for rituals, they declare their allegiance to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’ala; but while in politics, judiciary or other worldly business, they appear in their real colour. Then they show their full ideological and cultural conversion to secularism and complete submission to kufr law. Like any nationalist or racist, they too, celebrate their political cessation from other Muslims based on ethnic, linguistic or tribal identity. For protecting such divisions, they even fight bloody wars.
Such inconsistency in faith and practice is indeed the clear symptom of deviation from the Qur’anic straight path. Such deviation now overwhelms the whole Muslim World. The key point of Islam is not to build mere mosques, madrasahs and minarets; but to change the whole world. Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la’s Own narrative “li’euzhira’hu alad’dini kullihi” (meaning: to overwhelm all religions of the world) is very explicit on that issue. The early Muslims exactly got the message; hence, a few millions of them could do a lot to overwhelm huge parts of Asia, Africa and Europe by Islamic faith. But now, the 1.5 billion Muslims are doing exactly the opposite. Instead of influencing the others, they are themselves overwhelmed by the kuffar faiths and ideologies.
Today’s Muslims terribly fail to understand even the key message of Islam; it is indeed the mother of all failures. Islam was never revealed for the man-fearing cowards who even can’t announce publicly their faith on sharia, hudud, jihad, khilafa, border-dismantling Muslim unity and Islamic state. There is no proof that Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la has ever built any paradise for such fake Muslims. A Muslim is required to express his Allah-fearing courage in his politics and warfare. The early Muslims sacrificed their life and wealth for spreading and defending Islam. But today, the Muslims are moving exactly in the opposite direction; they are spreading and defending their own perversion. They even die for the cause of the enemies. More than a million fought and several hundred thousands died in both the World Wars for the cause of the western imperialists. For the same known enemies, several millions are now fighting in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and many other parts of the world. Because of them, the whole Muslim world now stands fully occupied by the internal and external enemies who fiercely oppose any victory of Islam even in the Muslim majority countries. Such a betrayal against Islam cum submission to the kuffars has serious consequences; it makes people fully unfit for making any acceptable taubah. It also deprives them from the Divine guidance and blessings. As a result, they get farther away from Islam. The sustained deviation and downfall of the Muslim ummah indeed a living testimony to that.
The culture of compromise
Islam is a religion of all-time full submission to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Hence, there is no scope of part-time compromise or short-term deviation from the Qur’anic roadmap. Every wilful compromise or deviation is a major sin and nurtures a culture of rebellion against Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. Only a quick correction of such deviation and deep repentance on doing such sins can save one from eternal hellfire. A Muslim ceases to exist as Muslim with the continuation of any compromise or deviation. Such a compromise or deviation indeed takes a Muslim to the enemy camp. It is the route of Iblis that made him a rebel against Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. But it is awful that such compromise on Islam or the deviation from the Qur’anic roadmap has become the norm in Muslim life. Because of such compromise and deviation, even many obligatory key parts of Islam like sharia, hudud, jihad, shura, khilafa are no more visible in the Muslim World. On such flip-flopping believers, the holy Qur’an reveals a very stern warning in the following verse: “Surely, those who disbelieve after believing and then increase in the disbelief, their repentance shall not be accepted, and these are the people who stay deviated.” –(Sura al-Imran, verse 90). So, the consequence of any compromise and deviation is very catastrophic; his or her taubah doesn’t get accepted. And, the rejection of taubah equals nothing but entering into hellfire for an infinity.
The Muslim enmity against Islam has other ugly faces. If a brave Muslim stands against the internal or external occupying forces and starts working with a mission for establishing sharia, hudud, khialfa, shura, jihad and trans-ethnic Muslim unity –as was practised by the prophet (peace be upon him) and the early Muslims, is quickly labelled as terrorist. As if, adherence to Qur’anic Islam and the prophet’s tradition is the doctrine of terrorism. The brutal murder of such Islamists by the US-led coalition in any part of the Muslim World even get celebrated by these so-called Muslims.
The Muslims’ failure to distinguish jihad from terrorism is huge. They even distort the dictionary meaning these two distinctively different words. Jihad is the holy war prescribed by Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la for dismantling the rule of kufr and for implementing His Own sovereignty and His sharia law. It is the defensive and executive arm of Islam. Without jihad, the Muslims can’t engage in the Divine mission of “enjoining the right and eradicating the wrong”. In absence of jihad, the full practice of Islam becomes impossible even in Muslim lands. The occupying forces in the Muslim countries never leave any space for practice of such Islam.
Whereas, terrorism –as per standard lexicon, is the use of violent act to frighten people of an area for political and economic gain. It is the offensive arm of kufr to bring the rule of kufr and to dismantle the rule of sharia. Terrorism was the tool of the European colonialists to occupy and exploit the weaker Asian and African countries. This way, they abused the weakness of the weaker people of the world for their imperialistic benefit. In Muslim countries, they act as terrorists not only to dismantle Muslim rule, but also to abolish the pre-existing sharia law and judiciary. Israel is using the same terrorism against the people of Palestine. And India is showing the same in Kashmir.
Now the US-led coalition is using the same tool to terrorise the people of the whole Muslim World. Recently, the US Army has dropped 10 ton bomb –called mother of all bombs, in the eastern part of Afghanistan. Its destructive power is only next to a nuclear bomb. Flattening a hill or killing some Islamists was not the only target; the objective was to show the terrorising power of the USA. The predator beasts show their teeth with the same purpose. For the same reason, they also dropped nuclear bombs in the past. To give sustenance to their imperialist dominance in the world, displaying such terrorising power is the part of their key strategy.
The greatest benevolent act in the history
Iblis never failed to understand the meaning of Islam. He didn’t fail either to understand Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la’s vision, mission and objective vis-à-vis the creation of mankind. Hence, from day one, he stood against it. Hence, ignorance vis-à-vis Islam’s objective is not an issue among the followers of Shaitan. Even in the very early days of Islam, the kuffars of Arabia didn’t make any mistake to understand Islam either. They could foresee their doom in Islam’s victory –as was the case also with Nimrod and Pharaoh. Hence, in those formative days of Islam, all brands of the enemies made the coalition to destroy the nascent Islamic state headed by the great prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam. Then, the newly formed Islamic state was inflicted with a chain of wars. Even the two contemporary World Powers –the Roman and the Persian Empires, engaged in war against the prophet’s state. Islam could secure its security and stand as the number one World Power only after defeating those enemies.
In any segment of history, the absence of an Islamic state is catastrophic. The people are then subjected to state-run social and political engineering only to get dumped in hellfire. Whereas, the benefit of the Islamic state is huge. The state and its institutions then turn into protector of people from hellfire. An Islamic state thus works as the most benevolent institute on earth. Because of such a state power, the early Muslims could rescue millions of people from their ongoing march towards the eternal hellfire. It was indeed the greatest and most successful rescue effort in the whole history of mankind. Economic aid of a trillion dollar to a man is nothing in comparison to such a rescue from the hellfire. One can only understand the worth of such a rescue if he comprehends the meaning of the following Qur’anic verse: “Surely, those who disbelieve and die while they are unbelievers, the whole earth full of gold shall not be accepted from one of them, though he should offer to ransom himself with it.” –(Sura al-Imran, verse 91). By bringing millions of people to the path of paradise –as was possible through conversion to Islam, the early Muslims thus could accomplish the greatest benevolent task in the whole history of the mankind. Through such huge rescue efforts, they could rightly prove their credential as the best people among all people of all ages –as narrated by the prophet (peace be upon him).
Corrupting the meaning of Islam
It is a great mockery that most of the ulama, mullahs, imams and political leaders tell the people that Islam means peace. But what is that peace? And where was that peace in the history of Islam? Did the prophets of Islam like Prophet Nuh (peace be upon him), Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him), Prophet Musa (peace be upon him), Prophet Isa (peace be upon him), Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and many other prophets and their followers had ever enjoyed such peace? For them, peace exists only in the paradise. Those who tell that Islam means peace, probably they talk about peace that comes through inaction, submission or peaceful co-existence with the evil forces –as they themselves practise in their life. But such peace has never been the part of the life of these great prophets. They took mission of “enjoining the right and eradicating the wrong (a’amaru bil ma’ruf and nehi’anil munkar)” as the life-long motto, hence invited incessant challenges from the enemies. The enemies of Divine Truth never allow such prophetic mission go unchallenged. As a result, from day one of their prophet hood, they had to suffer oppression, suppression, persecution and eviction. Thousands of the great prophets and their followers were labelled as the public enemy by the contemporary rulers; and were killed brutally. So embracing Islam doesn’t bring any peace in believers’ life on earth; rather pushes them towards dangerous challenges that even cost their life. In fact, it gives the believer a Divine purpose of survival; and brings a life-long struggle for the revealed Truth against all ranges of falsehood.
In fact, “Islam means peace” is the most ridiculous expression of ignorance on Islam. They reiterate such cliché with a sinister political cum ideological motive. They want to hide Islam’s real vision, mission and objective by spreading such concocted narrative. This way, they are harming Islam. Islam’s dictionary meaning and ideological connotation is totally different from such hugely circulated lie. In fact, Islam is all about full submission to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’al’s Qur’anic orders. The word “Islam” is the verbal noun of the verb “aslama” which means “to surrender”. Any rebellion against any of the Qur’anic commands is kufr; and such rebellion is indeed the distinctive marker of a kafir. And those who fully enter into such submission are called true Muslim. And how to submit to all Qur’anic prescriptions, the prophet (peace be upon him) and his companions set the perfect example. Implementation of sharia, hudud, shura, Islamic state cum khilafa, jihad, trans-ethnic Muslim unity comes under the gamut of such submission. The same is true even now –as it was true at the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
