Perennialism leads to terrorism

As-Salamu ‘Alaikum

Taking on from the other article where I mentioned that terrorism leads to perennialism, I wanted to also post a word of caution, and illustrate an example regarding the other extreme. 

A lot of cases of Muslims getting “radicalized” (in the language of the kafir media) are precisely due to the systematic effort of trying to get them to “integrate” and “assimilate” with kafir societies and force-feed kufr values (like LGBT marriage acceptance) down their throats. It causes some people to sometimes become so disenfranchised from their identity, so fed up from the status quo, that they head in the exact opposite direction, miss the true middle path of wisdom, and join the khawarij. 

If we do not stop this vicious circle of kharjiism-perennialism-kharjiism, the problems with Muslim societies, especially where they are minorities, will only become much more severe and worse. May Allah preserve the ummah of His Beloved ﷺ.

The right way for all of us to deal with matters is to not just refute kharjiism, BUT ALSO to shun all forms of syncretism, assimilation, and integration, and work towards protocols and codes of engagement between Muslims and kafirs. This is a duty that our ‘ulema and leaders need to undertake if they care about their religion or the Muslim ummah. 

Alhamdulillah, our fiqh corpus of the four madhhabs of the Ahlus Sunnah, gives us extremely detailed and “nuanced” solutions and codes of engagement that Muslims can implement with the kuffar.

I can not reiterate this enough, to seek knowledge from the authentic sources – the Ahlus Sunnah – the followers of the Ash’ari/Maturidi ‘aqaid and the four madhhabs of the Ahlus Sunnah!

The choice is ours –

a) do we want to follow evil hypocrites and promoters of perennialism whose aim is to dilute Islam with kufr under the garb of “fiqh of minorities” and “interfaith initiatives” to suit the sensibilities of kafirs, in  order to revive the colonial spirit of western hegemony and prepare the group of dajjal; OR

b) do we want to lose our children to the mujassim khawarij enemies of Ahlus Sunnah, the last of whom shall ALSO fight alongside the dajjal; OR

c) do we want to be rescued by the help of Allah that comes to the methodology of the Ahlus Sunnah?

Another word of caution – NEITHER of the kuffar’s right or left wings is a friend of Islam.

They are BOTH traps of satan.

The right wish to destroy Islam outright and explicitly with their insane corrupt biblical beliefs. As but one example, physically, they wish to destroy Palestinians to make their dream of Israel come true.

The left wish to destroy Islam in a sneaky cunning way by psychologically using social pressure to try to make homosexuality, abortions, drug experimentation, music and other sins appeasing and acceptable to Muslims & Islamic law. Physically, they may want to protect Muslim lives. But religiously, spiritually, morally, & psychologically, they are hostile to Islam as previously mentioned in the post in regards to kafir harbiyy. (Click Here to read more about such kafirs who are overjoyed whenever they see Islamic injunctions being negated)

Spiritually, someone has to CARE FOR THEIR OWN SOUL before they can care for others’ true welfare.

Verse 118 of Surah Aal-i-‘Imran says:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا بِطَانَةً مِّن دُونِكُمْ لَا يَأْلُونَكُمْ خَبَالًا وَدُّوا مَا عَنِتُّمْ قَدْ بَدَتِ الْبَغْضَاءُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَمَا تُخْفِي صُدُورُهُمْ أَكْبَرُ ۚ قَدْ بَيَّنَّا لَكُمُ الْآيَاتِ ۖ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ

Translation of meaning: O you who believe! Do not take confidants from other than yourselves [i.e., Muslims], they [kuffar] shall not spare you any harm; rank hatred has emerged from their mouths, and that which their chests conceal is greater! We have manifested the signs to you openly, if you have sense [do not befriend them]. (Holy Quran 3:118)

Imam Fakhr Ad-Diin Ar-Razi’s Mafatiih Al-Ghayb says under this verse:

لأن المسلمين كانوا يشاورونهم في أمورهم ويؤانسونهم لما كان بينهم من الرضاع والحلف ظنا منهم أنهم وإن خالفوهم في الدين فهم ينصحون لهم في أسباب المعاش فنهاهم الله تعالى بهذه الآية عنه،

فمنع المؤمنين أن يتخذوا بطانة من غير المؤمنين فيكون ذلك نهيا عن جميع الكفار وقال تعالى: {ياأيها الذين ءامنوا لا تتخذوا عدوى وعدوكم أولياء} (الممتحنة: 1) ومما يؤكد ذلك ما روي أنه قيل لعمر بن الخطاب رضي الله عنه: ههنا رجل من أهل الحيرة نصراني لا يعرف أقوى حفظا ولا أحسن خطأ منه، فإن رأيت أن تتخذه كاتبا، فامتنع عمر من ذلك وقال: إذن اتخذت بطانة من غير المؤمنين، فقد جعل عمر رضي الله عنه هذه الآية دليلا على النهي عن اتخاذ بطانة،

مفاتيح الغيب

Translation of meaning: Muslims used to consult with kafirs and had affinities with them. Because of this they had close relations and oaths between them. Muslims used to think that even though the kafirs are their opposition in religion, they are our well wishers in matters of trade and other such cases. Then after the revelation of this verse, Allah forbade Muslims from mateship with kafirs and keeping them as confidants (sharing secrets). So Allah commanded Muslims not to have any confidants other than Muslims; and this applies to ALL kafirs. And Allah said, “O you who believe, do not befriend Mine and your enemies” and this narration of Seyyidina ‘Umar strengthens this message where he was requested that a person from Ahl al-Hiirah who was a christian, who had an excellent memory and a beautiful handwriting, be hired by him as a clerk if he so wished. He, radi Allahu ‘anhu, replied that if he did such, he would be taking a confidant from outside of Muslims. Therefore, Seyyidina ‘Umar, radi Allahu ‘anhu, used this verse as a proof that it is forbidden to have [the christian] as a confidant.

Muslims who feel compelled to align with either side of the kuffar, their left or right, will be losers.

Their right vs left battle is THEIRS and NOT OURS.

We should focus on OUR rules of engagement with THEM in general.

wa’maa tawfiiqiy illaa bi(A)llah.
