Don’t Take The Bait!
Fascists Spread Fear, Hate
And Islamophobia To
Control Your Lives!
They Want To Divide And Rule
Mankind Is One Nation
(M. Javed Naseem)
No religion promotes hatred, bias, racism or sectarianism. Anybody engaged in promoting and preaching that, is an enemy of mankind. He’s the Devil’s disciple, no matter what he claims to be (a Jew, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or anything else). Jesus Christ called such preachers ‘The Miserable Ones’ (Les Miserables).
Addressing the selfish priests and scribes – the hypocrites and the corrupt preachers – Jesus, the son of Mary, said:
“Hypocrites! You do this to fill your purse, and therefore you tithe rue and mint.”
“O miserable ones! For to others you show the most clear way, by which you will not go. You scribes and doctors lay upon the shoulders of others weights of unbearable weight, but you yourselves the while are not willing to move them with one of your fingers. Truly I say to you, that every evil has entered into the world under the pretext of the elders. Tell me, who made idolatry to enter into the world, if not the usage of the elders? For there was a king who exceedingly loved his father, whose name was Baal.”
“Whereupon, when the father was dead, his son for his own consolation, caused to be made an image like to his father, and set it up in the market-place of the city. And he made a decree that every one who approached that statue within a space of fifteen cubits should be safe, and no one any account should do him hurt. Hence the malefactors, by reason of the benefit they received therefrom, began to offer to the statue roses and flowers, and in a short time the offerings were changed into money and food, insomuch that they called it god, to honour it. Which thing from custom was transformed into a law, insomuch that the idol of Baal spread through all the world.”
(From the Gospel of Barnabas, Chapters 32 & 38)
Today, we see the same in the Muslim world. People gather at the tombs with offerings and ask for good luck. The graves are being worshipped and people beseech the dead to solve their problems. This is the real ‘Shirk’.
Last fortnight was the festive season of Christmas and Eid-Milaad. Now we are passing through the New Year festivities. I saw plenty of strange, funny, even ridiculous Fatwahs (decrees) from different schools of thoughts who all claim to be the ‘true’ Muslims.
The “Fatwah factories of Islam”, run by
ignorant (Jaahil) Mullahs, come up with
new products every month, even every
week sometime! If you don’t buy their
product (ideology), they offer you what
you need to support your ideology and
reject what others promote. So, what do
you need? A Fatwah, a Hadith or a story
decorated with Arab names that can
sell your (pro or con) argument?
In the West, Muslims have become the victims of prejudice called ‘Islamophobia’. But what is this ‘Fatwah-mania’ in the Muslim world? Both groups are actively promoting hate and discrimination; bias and prejudice; intolerance, division and anti-freedom behavior. This is against the teachings of the prophets like Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon all of them).
We need unity, not division; we need compassion and love, not hate and bias; we need to take care of each other, not condemn and kill each other!
Despite all Fatwahs, I wish you all a
very happy, peaceful and prosperous
new year – 2016! My only hope is that
love, peace and justice would spread,
the sanity prevails, the wars and the
games of bloodshed stop, ande we
finally learn how to live and let live.
May God protect you from all evils.
Mankind is one community and that community can survive only on love, compassion, sympathy, cooperation, tolerance and peaceful co-existence. We need those virtues badly now, more than ever!
What’s going on in
Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya,
and other Muslim countries is horrible, to say the least. Is that bloodshed not
enough to wake us up? Let’s be humane and talk about humanity! Let’s try to
solve the problems of the suffering mankind! Let’s stop the hand of aggressor!
Let’s get together and stand up united against injustice, oppression and
persecution! Let’s promote justice, peace, harmony and goodwill! Let’s help
The Bible Says:
“We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death.”
“If a man says, ‘I love God’, and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he that loves not his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?”
“Honor all (men)! Love the brotherhood! Fear God! Honor the king!”
“By this shall all (men) know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
“Let brotherly love continue!”
“A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.”
Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, (being) of one accord, of one mind.”
“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.”
The Quran Says:
وَٱعْتَصِمُواْ بِحَبْلِ ٱللَّهِ جَمِيعاً وَلاَ تَفَرَّقُواْ
وَٱذْكُرُواْ نِعْمَةَ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنْتُمْ أَعْدَآءً
فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُمْ بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَاناً
وَكُنْتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِّنَ ٱلنَّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُمْ مِّنْهَا
كَذٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ
“And hold fast, all together, by the rope
which Allah (stretches out for you), and
be not divided among yourselves; and
remember with gratitude Allah's favor on
you; for you were enemies and He joined
your hearts in love, so that by His Grace,
you became brethren; and you were on the
brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you
from it. Thus does Allah make His Signs
clear to you, that you may be guided.”
وَٱلَّذِينَ جَآءُوا مِن بَعْدِهِمْ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا ٱغْفِرْ لَنَا
وَلإِخْوَانِنَا ٱلَّذِينَ سَبَقُونَا بِٱلإِيمَانِ وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ
فِى قُلُوبِنَا غِلاًّ لِّلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ رَبَّنَآ إِنَّكَ رَءُوفٌ رَّحِيمٌ
“And those who came after them say: Our
Lord! Forgive us, and our brethren who
came before us into the Faith, and leave not,
in our hearts, rancor (or sense of injury)
against those who have believed. Our Lord!
You are indeed Full of Kindness, Most Merciful."
وَٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَهَاجَرُواْ وَجَاهَدُواْ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ
وَٱلَّذِينَ آوَواْ وَّنَصَرُوۤاْ أُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ
حَقّاً لَّهُمْ مَّغْفِرَةٌ وَرِزْقٌ كَرِيمٌ
“Those who believed and left their homes
and strove for the cause of Allah, and those
who took them in and helped them – these
are the believers in truth. For them is pardon,
and a bountiful provision.”
Allah is talking about those believers who became victims of aggression, suppression, tyranny, torture and persecution. Today, they are known as the suffering humanity or the ‘refugees’. Now, for one second, think about “those who took them in and helped them”!
Those are the words of Allah from the Quran! There is no mention of the Jews, Christians or others. There’s just one category – ‘those who took them in and helped them’. That’s a noble cause and the Almighty is going to reward them for this act of kindness (whether they are Germans, Swedes, Americans, Canadians, Turks, Saudis, etc.). He promised ‘pardon’ to them with a ‘bountiful provision’ as bonus. So, who wants it?
We can promote love and compassion; we can combat hate, prejudice and division; we can thwart apartheid and bias; we can unite the mankind by helping each other. The choice is ours!
Now, there is one question about the role of Muslim nations in this situation: What are they doing?
The answer is: Nothing, as usual. The Muslim countries are ruled by hypocrites (the ‘Munaafiqeen’) who neither follow the Quran nor the teachings of the Prophet (s.a.w.). Because, if they did, they won’t be entitled to the positions they hold today. They are just puppets.
We need direction and it comes through true guidance. And the true guidance comes from the Quran. We should avoid jumping to Fatwahs. Just do your best to help others and let Allah be the True Judge!
The irony is that there are people who believe in the Day of Resurrection and they know that they would be held accountable for everything they did on this earth. Still they keep walking on the wrong path ignoring all warnings. They would be the real losers.
ٱلَّذِينَ يَنقُضُونَ عَهْدَ ٱللَّهِ مِن بَعْدِ مِيثَاقِهِ
وَيَقْطَعُونَ مَآ أَمَرَ ٱللَّهُ بِهِ أَن يُوصَلَ وَيُفْسِدُونَ
فِى ٱلأرْضِ أُولَـۤئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْخَاسِرُونَ
“Those who break the covenant of
Allah after ratifying it, and sever that
which Allah ordered to be joined, and
(who) make mischief in the earth;
those are they who are the losers.”
In the battle between the ‘good’ and the ‘evil’, it is the ‘good’ that is bound to succeed as the ‘evil’ is bound to lose – that is the law of nature. Allah narrates that the dwellers of the Heaven will ask the dwellers of the Hell about their plight:
فِى جَنَّاتٍ يَتَسَآءَلُون عَنِ ٱلْمُجْرِمِينَ مَا سَلَكَكُمْ فِى سَقَرَ
قَالُواْ لَمْ نَكُ مِنَ ٱلْمُصَلِّينَ وَلَمْ نَكُ نُطْعِمُ ٱلْمِسْكِينَ
وَكُنَّا نَخُوضُ مَعَ ٱلُخَآئِضِينَ وَكُنَّا نُكَذِّبُ بِيَوْمِ ٱلدِّينِ
حَتَّىٰ أَتَانَا ٱلْيَقِينُ َ
“(They will be) in Gardens (of Delight);
“(They will be) in Gardens (of Delight);
they will question each other, and (ask) of
the Sinners: "What led you into Hellfire?"
They will say: "We were not of those who
prayed; nor were we of those who fed the
indigent. But we used to talk vanities with
vain talkers; and we used to deny the
Day of Judgment, until there came to
us (the Hour) that is certain."
So, disobedience to God (not praying, not thanking and not glorifying His name; and not following His commands); not feeding the hungry; not helping the poor/needy; and denying the Day of Judgment are the main causes of our downfall. If we don’t change the course, we are bound for Hell.
