Back to the old ignorance

Ignorance (jaheliya) is the mother of all failures. And, today’s Muslims stand as the perfect testimony to that. An ignorant man or woman can only survive as a physical being; but can never be a true Muslim. Nor can be even a true humane. Deprivation of Qur’anic knowledge works as the key barrier to that. Before Islam, the Arabs had a long history of ugly failure for the same reason. Whereas, the same Arabs could build the finest and the only humane civilisation on earth in the whole history of mankind. Others could build big empires, amazing monuments, pyramids, palaces, temples, walls, sculptures, potteries and paintings; but the Muslims are the only ones who could raise a civilisation based on the Divine laws, higher values, justice, equality and trans-ethnic brotherhood. On the top of all those huge achievements, they are the only ones who could show the right path to the paradise and saved hundreds of millions of people from the hellfire. Such a miracle could only happen because of their deep conversion to Islam –the only true Divine religion on earth, and total abhorrence of the ignorance. Assimilation of the Qur’anic knowledge in their beliefs and deeds worked as the key to all of their successes.

AIDS in the conceptual premise

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.

The moral disability & the 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.

The non-existent ummah!

The Muslims as an ummah is now non-existent. They exist only as some national, racial or linguistic identities, not as ummah. A human body can’t survive with its truncated skeleton. Likewise, the body of the ummah can’t survive with divisive maps, flags, walls and borders. This is why, causing division among Muslims is haram (forbidden) in Islam; it is the job of the most evil enemies. The Qur’anic command “la tafarraku” (don’t be divided) is obligatory on every Muslim; only those who are stubborn disobedient to Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la can ignore such stern warning. Islam is all about full submission to His all orders; and any disobedience to any order is kufr. The current political map of the Muslim World is indeed an accurate indicator to show how deep such disobedience runs among the Muslims today. It also reveals how far they have deviated from the legacy of the prophet (peace be upon me) and his rightly guided companions. No amount of religious rituals like 5 times prayer, month-long fasting or haj can hide such failure. It also shows, how the obsession with ethnic, linguistic, tribal and other parochial interest has undermined the concept of ummah and dismantled Islam’s most powerful institution like khilafa. Now the same process of disintegration has started in newly formed states like Iraq, Syria and Yemen.

The disconnetion

The most important agenda of Islam is to connect humans with their Almighty Creator. 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. The basis of this Divine connectivity of a believer is the perfect congruity of his vision, mission and objective with that of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. For that, one needs to hold fast the teaching of the holy Qur’an. But now, the Muslims are known for a deeper disconnection. Their vision, mission, ideologies, politics, warfare, law, constitutions, education and culture show little or no connection with the objective of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and His final Book of guidance –the holy Qur’an. Moreover, the state and the institutions that the last prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam built in those early days of Islam, hasn’t been accepted as a model in the state building. With such disconnection from Almighty Lord, the holy Qur’an and the last prophet (peace be upon him), if the Muslims had achieved any success, peace or glory, that would have easily nullified any need of Islam for any human. But, that didn’t happen in any part of the Muslim World. Instead, such disconnection has caused catastrophic deviation from the straight path (siratul mustaqeem); and has led to a destination far away from the early Muslims. The difference is so huge and the failure is so disgraceful that one can genuinely ask whether today’s Muslims believe in same Islam and follow the same Qur’an.
