What Muslims Dare Not Acknowledge.

By Dr. Jasim Pasha

Muslims do have the power and the means to eliminate terrorism, if they just dare to recognize the Achilles’ heel of Radical Islamism with an open mind.

The whole body of Radical Islamism is conceived in the womb of dubious religious literature. It derives its oxygen from religious ideology and opinions buried in “Islamic literature”, though in direct conflict with Quranic principles, but unfortunately justified and fostered by mainstream Muslim scholars.

However, this little monster child of Radical Islamism cannot grow and develop into a real threat for the whole world, unless it receives ample nourishment, which is derived solely from few Muslim and many non-Muslim rogue world powers.

Principal theme of Radical Islamism & associated terrorism:

The principal theme of Radical Political Islam is to propel a fabricated Islamic duty of every Muslim to do jihad throughout one’s entire life with a declared purpose of establishing “Islamic State”1 anywhere and everywhere, wherever a Muslim is residing.

The Islamists’ doctrine and the associated terrorist activities have to be based on religious grounds in order to make it appear convincing and theologically legitimate.

Radical Islamists use 3 sources to deceitfully justify Radical Islamism & associated terrorism:

1. Hundreds of thousands of ahadith (oral narrations), regardless of the extent of their unreliability.

2. Opinions, fatwas, and traditions originating from various Imams, Muslim scholars and past Muslim rulers belonging to scores of sectarian based Sunni and Shia Islamic Shariahs, without any regard to their validity.

3. Diabolically mistranslated Quranic verses, craftily interpreted through the unreliable context of ahadith and opinions of Imams and other Islamist scholars and Muslim rulers.

Radical Islamists routinely and advantageously exploit the following pre-existing ideological weaknesses of the entire Muslim Umma, based on centuries of indoctrination with false beliefs, which are in conflict with the Quranic principles:

1. A great majority of Muslims has been indoctrinated to falsely believe that the entire ahadith literature, Imams’ opinions and fatwas are as sacred and divine as the Quran itself, and this justifies interpreting the Quran only in the context of these ahadith and

1 The concept of “Islamic State” was taken up by Muhammad Rashīd Riḍā, the al-Azhar shaykh, ʿAlī ʿAbd al-Rāziq, Ḥasan al-Bannā, Sayyid Quṭb, Abul A’la Maududi, and Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

religious fatwas. Understanding Quran, without the hadith context, is outrageously admonished by majority of the mainstream Muslim clergy.

2. Muslims are unaware that there are many ahadith that are assumed to be “reliable and authentic”, yet are in serious conflict with Quranic principles. The Islamists deceitfully evade these very Quranic verses that highlight those principles, and despicably claim that these Quranic verses have been ‘abrogated’, and out rightly reject them as ‘obsolete’. For example, all Muslim scholars who promote the concept of imposing “Islamic State” on people, instead of governance based on Islamic humanist values, reject the Quranic verse 2:256 that states emphatically that there is no compulsion in the Deen of Islam.

The dangerous religious myth about the pious duty to establish “Islamic State”, often suggested by the “mainstream” Muslim scholars, provides enough authentic justification to Radical Islamists to exploit this myth for recruiting Muslim youth.

3. Pointing out to ‘moderate’ Muslims, the non-divine fallible status of ahadith and opinions of various Imams as the main source, which the rogue Islamist scholars use to misquote and distort Quranic verses to justify violent jihad, runs the risk of being branded as ‘Westernized secular Muslim’ or Islamophobic.

Most of the Muslims believe in the myth that everything that Islamophobia propagates was fabricated entirely by non-Muslims. They are oblivious of the fact that the roots of most of the contents of Western Islamophobia can be traced all the way back to a large portion of ahadith, with no remote connection to Quran, which is only misquoted to make their opinion appear authentic to Muslims and non-Muslims.

4. One can safely assume that the great majority of Muslims all over the world have neither read the entire ahadith literature, nor have read the Quran seriously to be able to grasp the Quranic principles that are in serious conflicts with the ahadith literature and fatwas of various Imams. The Muslim Umma remains perpetually confused about what is coming from Quran and what is originating from ahadith.

Had there been no emphasis of linking ahadith context as mandatory through which to interpret and understand every Quranic verse, there would be no Islamic Extremism.

This is why Muslim leaders, choosing to just issue a statement condemning terrorist acts periodically might be helpful for P-R purposes in the West, but it does nothing to discourage Muslim youth joining al-Qaeda and ISIS to kill Shias, Ahmadis and Ismailia Muslims, Jews and Christians – all of whom have been labeled as the ‘enemies of Islam’.

Muslim youth who join the extremist organizations are unaware that although ahadith have historical significance for all Muslims and some spiritual benefits, but unlike Quran they are still non-divine and fallible. Using ahadith as a source of instruction to

learn all about Quranic Shariah (principles) is a grave mistake and dangerous for one’s spiritual well-being.

The religious beliefs and the attitudes that are in direct conflict with Quranic principles are also the only religious common grounds, which ironically co-exist and are tacitly shared between the Islamists’ Radical Political Islam and the “mainstream” Muslim scholars:

The naïve moderate Muslims, most of whom loathe violence of every kind, especially the barbarism committed by terrorist organizations, are totally unaware of about the fact that, except for the use of extreme violence, everything else that is non-Quranic that the radical Islamists promote is also ideologically promoted by most of the mainstream Muslim scholars and are part of their usual sermons, khutbas and fatwas given in Islamic Centers and promoted on tapes. And it is this religious material that feeds the minds of Muslim youth and predisposes them to their later radicalization.

The religious beliefs and attitudes that are in conflict with Quranic principles, and are shared as common grounds between Radical Islamists and Mainstream Muslim scholars are as follows:

1. They promote the non-Quranic concept of “Islamic State”, as opposed to Islamic governance, which is based only on universal respect for human dignity, human rights, fairness and rule of the law, without excluding anyone, regardless of one’s ethnicity, nationality, atheistic or theistic beliefs, as was exemplified in the Madinah Constitution of the Prophet.

2. They promote the non-Quranic pre-Islamic Judeo-Christian-Pagan traditions and moral values that Prophet discouraged and finally abolished, like misogynist practices, such as child marriages, women’s passive role to serve men, Judeo-Christian traditions, such as blasphemy & apostasy, and punishments like beheading, burning humans alive, crucifixion, stoning sinners to death, honor killing and female genital mutilations.

3. Haqooq-ul-Ebad is rarely emphasized, since it is a barrier to establishing “Islamic State”, which promotes non-Quranic misogynistic culture and barbaric punishments.

4. They instill an image of Quran as being very complex, too difficult for average Muslim to understand. For them, studying Quran is meaningless, unless read in the context of ahadith chosen by Muslim scholars, depending upon to which sub-sectarian Sunni or Shia Shariah one belongs to.

5. As opposed to Quran’s assertion, most of the moderate and radical Muslim scholars vehemently discourage critical thinking.

6. They emphasize the superiority of ahadith and the opinions of Imams, rather than the Quran itself. They use ahadith as an excuse to understand the ‘principles’ underlying Prophet’s Sunnah, rather than the divine principles in the Quran that Prophet’s Sunnah represented.

7. As opposed to the concept of taqwa based on Quranic principles, major emphasis is unfortunately on the external appearances, such as beard, hijab, wearing Muslim cultural dresses, miswak twig for teeth cleaning, spending more time in the mosques, not shaking hands with women, boasting with the idea of being superior to all the “infidels”, etc., with no emphasis on respect for human dignity, humility, kindness, love and compassion, tolerance, and pluralism that characterized Prophet’s real Sunnah.

8. They de-associate the concept of Shariah, which is derived solely from the Quranic principles, and associate and link it with the fallible ahadith, and the laws, traditions and opinions of the past scholars and Muslim rulers.

9. They avoid the Quranic concept of “People of the Book”, which is not germane to the obsession with the terms, such Kafirs and infidels.

10. As opposed to Quranic injunction that only Allah SWT has the exclusive authority to be a Keeper and a Guardian over all the affairs of people, they believe they have the authority to manage people’s religious beliefs (both Muslims and non-Muslims) and to compel them to be ‘righteous’. This fact is evident if one looks at all the Muslim countries today that claim to be “Islamic State”.

11. Like any despotic ruler, they also practice the principle of “Might is Right”, a mindset not compatible with Prophet’s Sunnah. They totally reject the principles that Prophet used in his Madinah Constitution that respected the rights of all diversities, including Jews, Christians and even pagans.

What empowers and strengthens the Radical Islamists?

Source #1 Muslims’ ignorance of Quranic principles:

As mentioned earlier, the inception of the Doctrine of Radical Islamism takes place in the womb of non-Quranic concept of “Islamic State”. Then it continues to receive its oxygen from the malevolent theological beliefs and sectarian practices founded on ahadith literature and opinions of various Imams. This source is crucial for creating a predisposition in the Muslim youth for future radicalization and recruitment purposes. These same religious sources are also a deciding factor for creating a predisposition even among the older Muslims to trust and go along with terrorist acts as legitimate religious punishments for the victims, who were believed to be on the path of ‘infidels’.

But these sources are helpful only to maintain Muslims’ religious ignorance and recruit Muslims for terrorist activities, but insufficient to nourish global terrorism for years. This nourishment comes from elsewhere.

Source #2: Regular help from Muslim and non-Muslim rogue nations

Regardless how dangerous the radical Islamists are, they cannot survive a day without the cooperation of the global world powers, which include both Muslim and non-Muslim rogue nations.

Terrorism is a trillion dollar business. To assume that ISIS and al-Qaeda are a challenge to the military of the West is bologna. It is an outright myth. ISIS and al-Qaeda, et al. are

West’s proxy armies used by both Muslim and non-Muslims rogue powers to implement their global agenda of getting rid of all World leaders and governments that resist Imperialistic and Zionist agenda, at the cost of turning many Muslim countries into “failed states”.

Terrorism requires constant source of finances in billions of dollars every year, along with supply of arms, and availability of ‘intelligence’, which do not come from any Muslim holy book; it comes clandestinely from countries, like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Israel, USA, UK, NATO, and their respective intelligence agencies. Counter-terrorism is only a ploy for the consumption of public to justify ongoing war for ‘regime change’.

Glaring facts about Radical Islamism & associated terrorism

1) The close alliance between non-Muslim Western powers USA, UK, NATO, EU and Israel and the Sunni-Wahhabi Royal families of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE helped to employ highly skilled Muslim and non-Muslim multi-lingual individuals for recruiting and training young Muslims willing to fight, kill and die doing jihad on their behalf against perceived “enemies of Islam”.

2) Muslims cannot ignore the fact that the most monstrous and atrocious terrorist acts by Islamists were perpetrated in the name of Islam, Quran and Sunnah.

3) The victims of all such terrorist acts and war against terrorism have been overwhelmingly only Muslims. Four millions2 Muslims died since 9/11. Most of people that were killed were Muslims, including all the intellectuals and the valuable Muslim human capital.

4) The non-Muslims killed by Muslim terrorists in the West occurred right only during the time when the West needed the excuse to intensify the war hysteria to invade anti-West Muslim country.

5) In terms of financial, political, economic gains, the non-Muslim world was the beneficiary 100%. Even the rogue Saudi Arabian regime is expected to go broke.

6) Radical Islamism helped the West in creating a politically conducive environment, justifying invasion of other militarily weak countries for ‘regime change’ and turning them into ‘failed states’. They thus got rid of “unwanted’ secular regimes of Iraq and Libya that were unfriendly to the Wahhabi regime of Saudi Arabia & Israel and threat to US world currency.

What can Muslims do to destroy the source of Radical Islamism & associated terrorism?

One does not need to be a great Muslim scholar to recognize that terrorism is at odds with all Quranic principles. But it needs an open enlightened mind to recognize that there is plenty of stuff in Islamic literature patronized by most of the mainstream Muslim Scholars, which is at odds with every Quranic principle. Muslims can do many things:

2 Global Research: “Four Million Muslims Killed in US-NATO Wars: Should We Call It Genocide?” By Kit O’Connell – 8-18-2016 < http://www.globalresearch.ca/four-million-muslims-killed-in-us-nato-wars-should-we-call-it-genocide/5470424 >

1. A call from educated, open-minded enlightened Muslims, with a serious commitment to serve the humanity, for the renewal of ijtihad. The ijtihad, not just for the sake of ijtihad, but ijtihad based on sound knowledge of all Quranic principles, applying in the context of 21st Century, while at the same time disregarding the dubious context of hundreds of thousands of questionable ahadith.

2. Muslims must reject the concept of personal duty of violent jihad and the concept of “Islamic State”.

3. Muslims should stop embracing any fatwa that adds ‘exception(s)’ to the Quranic verse 2:256 that there is no compulsion in the Deen of Islam.

4. Muslims must revive Haqooq-ul-Ebad, as an integral part of Islam, intertwined with Haqooq-ul-Allah, integrating the basic human values, such as respect for human dignity and respect for human rights of both Muslims and non-Muslims, without excluding anyone.

5. Concerning the ahadith literature and scholarly opinions, adhering to the following dictum would be a wise step:

a) Any hadith or an opinion that is in harmony with all the Quranic principles must be accepted and honored.

b) Any hadith or an opinion, if in conflict with even one Quranic principle, must be rejected, regardless of its authenticity and reliability.

c) Of course, this would require Muslims to study Quran without ahadith, and learn all the Quranic principles that are very simple and easy to understand. Those scholars who disagree with it only contradict the Quran that says that Allah SWT has made it very easy for everyone to understand.

6. Muslims must practice these steps with and without Muslim scholars at their Islamic centers and mosques and remove literature, opinions and fatwas that distort Quranic principles, especially the following two key principles of Haqooq-ul-Ebad:

a) Respect for human dignity, human rights, justice and respect for the rule of the law, without excluding anyone.

b) Prohibition in the use of compulsion in the Deen of Islam.

7. Enlightened Muslims must organize a think tank, which is willing to meet the challenge of separating all the medieval religious indoctrinations, beliefs and practices that are in conflict with the Quranic principles.

    Is this article submitted by Dr. Jaseem Pasha? His last article was next to perfection.

    The essay theme is great. Notwithstanding due to publishing errors, duplication of same sentences out of sequence created confusion and messed up the entire thought pattern.
    After painstaking / reading two or three times, discarding the duplication and arranging in its right perspective the great message is seen.

    Kindly request your management & Dr. Jaseem Pasha to proof read and re-publish as this could be a great benefit to our younger & older generation.

    Thanking you
    Kindest regards
    Syed Ali

  2. Syed Suleman Ali Says:

    Also, missing in the article is an appeal to all Muslims as a conclusion
    example;
    CONCLUSION:
    ALL MUSLIMS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD ARE REQUESTED TO EMBRACE THE SEVEN POINT SOLUTION PROVIDED ABOVE AND HOLD STEAD FAST TO OUR QURANIC VERSES GIVEN TO US BY OUR PROPHET.
    Thanking you,
    Kindest regards
