Allah (SWT) condemns fasad and corruption, and this is clear in many verses in the Qur’an. One type of mischief is of those who do not want to work for the domination of Islam (Izhar Ud-Deen), whether they are called “moderates” or “secularists”. They are doing mischief in the earth.
Firstly, this idea of authority without Islam to be in power means the authority is for the individuals for themselves or other men, both being corrupted. There are some who want the Deen of Islam only for themselves individually without being in authority, however its own people will be humiliated and those who do not want Islam in power will be humiliated as well, because they are acknowledging man made power to be in power over the Deen of Allah (SWT). Those who do not want to engage in dawah or Jihad to establish the Deen are establishing fasad on the earth. They admire being slaves to man-made systems, they want to be slaves in this life to the people who are corrupted, the kuffar. This is exactly what destroyed Christianity before i.e. to leave unto Cesar what is Cesar’s and unto God what is God’s. And now Christianity has become a text without meaning by saying mind your business in the church and we will mind or business in the society. Verily Secularism is a form of kufr on high level within society and people who accept this therefore deserve to be humiliated.
This fasad and mischief has become common practise today.
Allah (SWT) says: “And when it is said to them: “Make not mischief on the earth,” they say: “We are only peacemakers.” Verily! They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not.” [EMQ 2:11-12]
We can see from the way we are created that we are so weak our strength emanates from his (Allah) strength and when we follow his laws we will be elevated and when we leave his commands we will be humiliated. We should never accept to be slaves to any other man because we are slaves to Allah (SWT) and that is what elevates us as Muslims. This is the only way we can deserve to be called noble to follow, obey, serve and submit to Allah alone and to make his Deen superior.
Imam Abul Aaaliyah (ra), who was a good mufasir and who returned all he read to the companions of the Prophet, said about [EMQ 2:11-12] that it has been reported that the issue of the corruption on the Earth is when we tell them not to disobey Allah on the Earth and they do. The opposite of destruction is construction and the opposite of good deeds are bad deeds etc? so this ayah means do not disobey Allah (SWT).
Allah (SWT) tells us that the actions of the Jews and Christians are corruption on the Earth. We must obey and worship none but Allah. Allah tells us all power and authority belongs to none but Allah “Innil Hukmu Illa Lillah” in all of Allah (SWT)’s names, attributes and actions. He (SWT) is the one who gives life and takes life, he destined everything and we can’t associate anyone with Allah whatsoever.
You must establish the authority on the Earth, otherwise if we do not engage we will be with Al-Mufsidoun, and we too will have dead feelings. This is what we see today people who think they are doing good deeds but they are doing corruption rather the ones who do not want the Shari’ah do not deserve to be called the followers of the Messenger Muhammad (saw). Verily Allah (SWT) told us how to deal with this issue. We must establish his Deen and will never establish jaahiliyyah. Who is better in judgement than the ruling and judgement of Allah? Rather to say otherwise is the attribute of the Christians and Jews and Allah (SWT) has made their books vanish.
Remember that all glory is upon the one who dominates us through death. Death proves our weakness. Some of us may leave today, some tomorrow, indeed death could reach us in many ways but the cause is only Allah (SWT). At that time you will face your deeds and at that time you will face what you have been trying to avoid all your life.
Do you fear from man made law and fear from the police and government and yet do not fear from the one who created man? Do we fear from men and women who discharge and are weak and needy like us and yet we obey them and listen to them and disobey Allah (SWT)!!! Why do you not fear from the one who will put you in either hellfire or paradise? What will you do if you see a king who oppresses people so much and is always angry with people and who is always attacking people? What will you do when you see him? You will be worried about him and yet the one who knows your inner and outer and who is in control of everything i.e. Allah (SWT) does not imbibe fear from you towards him?
We can see two types of people today corrupted kuffar or apostates, in the East and West etc who want to have authority themselves but do not want the Deen to be in power. There are also those who destroy the Deen by their own interest and benefit, who keep the Deen in their hearts and do not want to struggle for it, so they say its not for the benefit of the dawah to call for the Shari’ah because they will call us fanatics, like the MP’s, like the MCB and MPAC and their supporters. It sounds like they use a divine condition but rather they measure by their own desires.
Allah tells us about these people who have short sightedness and small mindedness: “Do not obey those whose heart is dead away from our guidance and follow their own desires and whose affairs are so useless” and keep away from those who do not follow the Shari’ah.
Allah (SWT) also says: It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error. [EMQ 33:36]
This ayah is so general in all matters according to all the mufasireen and ulema of the past. Rather we do not even have the right to comment over the ayat of Allah. However some so-called Muslims have learnt how to be rebellious against Allah’s law because of freedom, secularism, democracy and liberalism.
Moreover Allah (SWT) says: “But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad SAW) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission.” [EMQ 4:65]
And Allah (SWT) also says:
Make not the calling of the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) among you as your calling of one another. Allah knows those of you who slip away under shelter (of some excuse without taking the permission to leave, from the Messenger SAW). And let those who oppose the Messenger’s (Muhammad SAW) commandment (i.e. his Sunnah legal ways, orders, acts of worship, statements, etc.) (among the sects) beware, lest some Fitnah (disbelief, trials, afflictions, earthquakes, killing, overpowered by a tyrant, etc.) befall them or a painful torment be inflicted on them. [EMQ 24:63]
Imam Ibn Qayyim (ra) used to say that a Muslim has no choice but to take what Allah (SWT) sends.And Allah (SWT) says: O you who believe! Raise not your voices above the voice of the Prophet (SAW), nor speak aloud to him in talk as you speak aloud to one another, lest your deeds may be rendered fruitless while you perceive not. [EMQ 49:2]SubhanAllah, and yet today how many voices are above Allah (SWT)’s and his Messenger Muhammad (saw)’s.
Ibn Qayyim said that if someone raises his voice above that of the Messenger all his deeds will vanish, let alone to put your own views above his, wanting man made laws instead of the Shari’ah!!!
As if its not enough that some people are so corrupted, defeated and humiliation there are those who also want to stand with the kuffar against Muslims in their war, some even want to become their own police, army and intelligence and work with them against Muslims!!!
O Muslims, We are supposed to play the role of Musa (AS) in the house of Pharaoh, they changed everything from within, without to become MP’s and Lords and messengers for them, but rather with the best word i.e. the word of Allah and not what they think is the best word.
Indeed, today many masks have been removed and the ugly faces of the sell outs and sycophants have come out, but with Muslim sounding names. Some have titles like Sir or Doctor or Lord and yet condemn those who speak the truth or those who call for the Shari’ah and yet they never condemn the Prime Minister or those at war with Islam and Muslims. The matter has become black and white nowadays, so clear. Some of these Preachers are seen today begging the kuffar for any benefit. They condemn the Muwahideen and the Mujahideen and instead praise all that the Kuffar say, let us beware and be aware and expose the hypocrites.
