Investigation of Condition of Qurayshi Lineage for Khalifah

Source: https://sunnitaraash.wordpress.com/2022/12/30/investigation-of-condition-of-qurayshi-lineage-for-khalifah/https://sunnitaraash.wordpress.com/2022/12/30/investigation-of-condition-of-qurayshi-lineage-for-khalifah/

By Muhammad Sabih

The issue of the condition of a Qurayshi for leadership can be divided into three views:

1- It is a condition for Khalifah just like it is a condition to be a Muslim male.

2- A Khalifah should be Qurayshi so long as no Mutaghalib non-Qurayshi claims power by force.

3- Being Qurayshi by lineage is not a condition; rather, it was due to other reasons like the Quraysh’s prowess in Siyasah and the geopolitical environment of Arabia or the lack of certainty on the matter. This is the view of Juwayni al-Shafi’i, Ibn Khaldun, Munawi, few Hanafis, and I also found it argued rigorously by Mufti Abdul Sattar Dehlawi among AhleHadith of IndoPak in his Fatawa Sattariyyah and Mawlana Hussain Ahmad Madani and Mufti Sa’id Ahmad Palanpuri among Deobandies.

The arguments for (1) are well-known, (2) are also found in various sources but the arguments for (3) are also interesting. The strongest argument is two narrations from ‘Umar(ra) and ‘Ayesha(ra) and a deeper look into the narrations used for Qurayshi lineage as a condition. It is narrated from ‘Umar(ra) that he said about Salim Abi Hudhayfah or Mu’adh Ibn Jabal that he would have made a Khalifah[1، 2]. ‘Ayesha(ra) narrated same about Zaid Bin Haritha that if he was alive he would have succeeded Rasulullah(sa)[3]. The chains of both statements are sound. 

Hafiz Ibn Hajar has to concede that the claim of Ijma’ requires a ta’wil of what is narrated from ‘Umar which proves that the narration holds considerable weight in weakening the Ijma'[2]. A similar statement also narrated from ‘Ayesha which Hafiz Ibn Hajar did not deal with, so essentially we need Ta’wil of two authentically narrated statements from two major companions. So what can be the Ta’wil?

  • The comments of ‘Umar (and by extension ‘Ayesha) are regarding leadership positions lesser than Khilafah; this goes against the clear apparent meaning of the narrations from ‘Umar and ‘Ayesha.
  • ‘Umar changed his view. Hafiz Ibn Hajar counts it as a possibility. This is also strange since the narration of ‘Umar appears to be from his death bed. So this is also not possible.
  • Ijma’ occurred after ‘Umar and ‘Ayesha despite their dissenting views. This is the only possible viable interpretation and the one also given by Hafiz Ibn Hajar; however, this concedes that two major companions did not agree with this Ijma’ from the start. What compounds the problem is the principle that if a companion narrates a narration and acts or expresses another contrary view, he must have a ta’wil of narration. So even if Ijma’ is accepted to have occurred later, its strength is affected by views of ‘Umar(ra) and ‘Ayesha(ra). Instead, it appears that the narrations used for Qurayshi lineage being Shart could have been understood differently by ‘Umar himself.

The narrations people often bring for Qurayshi lineage, being Shart have other possibly better explanations. First is which is in Bukhari:

إن هذا الأمر في قريش، لا يعاديهم أحد إلا كبه الله على وجه، ما أقاموا الدين

There is firstly a debate if it’s Amr or a Khabr. If it is Khabr, then it is qualified by “ما أقاموا الدين”. Many scholars understood it as a prophecy and justified it until their times when Mamluks had a puppet Khalifah in Egypt. Its discussed in Fath-ul-Bari:

قالَ الكِرْمانِيُّ لَيْسَتِ الحُكُومَةُ فِي زَمَنِنا لِقُرَيْشٍ فَكَيْفَ يُطابِقُ الحَدِيثَ وأجابَ عَنْ ذَلِكَ بِأنَّ فِي بِلادِ الغَرْبِ خَلِيفَةٌ مِن قُرَيْشٍ وكَذا فِي مِصْرَ

However, from our vantage point, the prophecy can no longer be accepted except with the meaning: “Khilafah will remain with the Quraysh and no one will be able to wrestle it from them so long as they establish Din”. By contrast, when they no longer establish the Din or are ineffective puppets, someone can take the matter from them as the Turks did. This narration does not indicate Shart. It may indicate the opposite that if they do not establish Din, Allah(swt) may take it away from them and give it to someone else who will establish it.

Another narration which is used for arguing that Qurayshi lineage is Shart also weakens that view. It is the one in Tirimdhi:

المُلْكُ فِي قُرَيْشٍ، والقَضاءُ فِي الأنْصارِ، والأذانُ فِي الحَبَشَةِ والأمانَةُ فِي الأزْدِ يَعْنِي: اليَمَنَ

This weakens the Shart view because the phrase (leadership is in Quraysh) is followed by Judgement is in Ansar, Adhan in Habashah and Amanah in Azd. As Ummah did not understand the rest of the three in the manner of حصر, the first phrase (الملك في قريش) must also not be understood as حصر. As Mufti ‘Abdul Sattar al-Dehlawi points out, this Hadith is used to say that leadership skills are found in Quraysh, judicial skills are found among Ansar, and so on.

The same goes for other narrations, which simply describe the political reality of that time that people follow Quraysh. In the end, my personal view is that of Anwar Shah Kashmiri that this issue is originally a Furu’i fiqh issue that has nothing to do with Aqidah. Ultimately, it is better to have a Khilafah who is Qurayshi in lineage as it potentially solves the tensions that may occur within ethnic groups of Ummah. However, the claim of Ijma’ and certainty on this issue are not well founded given the narrations from ‘Umar, ‘Ayesha, and how the narrations themselves can be interpreted. What is especially important to understand is that the side which does not consider Qurayshi lineage as a condition can explain away all the narrations while the other side faces difficulty in explaining the narrations from ‘Umar(ra) and ‘Ayesha(ra).

BIOGEOMETRY, PYRAMID EDUCATION AND THE LIKE ARE KUFR INSPIRATIONS OF IBLEES

Question

In the light of the Shariah what is the reality of spiritual healing associated with sciences such as ‘biogeometry’ and ‘pyramid education’ promoted by one Dr. Ibrahim Karim who is a biologist. He even presents the Asmaaul Husna in the light of these sciences. Is his teaching Islamically valid? Is it permissible to adopt the measures he promotes? What is the status of these type of esoteric sciences?

Answer (By Mujlisul Ulama):

Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:

“Thus have we appointed for every Nabi enemies from human shayaateen and jinn (shayaateen). They whisper to  one other (satanically) adorned words in order to deceive.”

(Al-An’aam, Aayat 112)

This is the sum total of the satanic biogeometry and pyramid sciences. It is pure satanism camouflaged with a smattering of Deeni matter to deceive and misguide. This is the purpose of the introduction of Asmaaul Husna by the Satanists. Their objective is to beguile ignorant and unsuspecting Muslims so as to ensnare them into the clutches of Iblees.

These types of ‘sciences’ in Qur’aanic parlance are termed Zukhruful Qawl which are satanically adorned words and ideas. To add deceptive ‘islamic’ hue to these potions of Iblees, some Satanists posing as Muslims, have innovated the veneer of Asmaaul Husna. This is the chimera which they dangle in front of morons and unsuspecting Muslims to entrap them into their snare of shaitaaniyat and kufr.

“Energy healers” are Satanists who seek to accord authenticity to their Satanist cult to befool Muslims with the peripheral blend of Asmaaul Husna. Their presentation of Asmaaul Husna as validation for their satanic ‘energy healing’ is most insidious and ludicrous. These very same Satanists also believe that Hindu and Buddhist cults are imbued with similar powers.

Describing this Satanist science, the Satanists say: “Sacred Geometry refers to universal patterns used in the design of sacred architecture and sacred art. Its roots are in ancient temple sciences and esoteric practices most of which have long since been deliberately obscured from the public domain.”

In Islam there is no ‘sacred’ architecture and ‘sacred’ art. Their esoteric practices are shirk and kufr. These are practices inspired by shaitaan. The ‘patterns’ mentioned are all artefacts of Iblees. The ‘ancient temple sciences and esoteric practices’ are all practices of shirk and kufr. Muslims should not be fooled by this satanic drivel simply because the Names of Allah Ta’ala (Asaamul Husna) are being utilized by the Satanists to give credibility to their satanism.

The Satanists say:

Although popular in spiritual circles today, most information about sacred geometry is abstract and shrouded in mystery.”

The ‘spiritual circles’ referred to are of the mushrikeen and kuffaar. The satanic ‘geometry’ is most certainly not associated with Islamic spiritual circles, that is with the Sufi Auliya.

The Satanists aver:

Biogeometry unites ancient Egyptian energy science with modern tools for fulfilling contemporary needs. It embraces holistic and practical intelligence and applies lost secrets of Sacred Geometry to elevate modern living.”

Ancient Egyptians were idolaters of the ilk of Fir’oun. There is absolutely no relationship between Islam and ‘ancient Egyptian energy’ which is the energy of the devil. And what are these ‘modern tools”? These ‘tools’ are also artefacts and inspirations of shaitaan. It is a combination and a compound of ancient satanism with modern satanism. The mixture is pure kufr and shirk.

The origin of biogeometry

Explaining the origin of this satanic science, the Satanists say:

 “The revolutionary science of BioGeometry was founded by Egyptian scholar Dr.Ibrahim Karim in 1968. An Egyptian architect and scientist, Dr.Ibrahim Karim always had a fascination with Ancient Egypt. Karim was inspired by the knowledge that the ancients possessed.”

The ‘knowledge’ of the Egyptian ancients as well as this fellow’s fascination with ancient Egypt are of the science of Zukhruful Qawl mentioned in the Qur’aan. Ancient Egypt with its pyramids of kufr and shirk are the preserves of Iblees. The pyramids by virtue of their shape constitute important media for the satanic ‘energy’ in which the Satanist scientist excels. The pyramids are symbols of shirk and house the mummified bodies of the ancient mushrik kings. This fact alone speaks volumes for the shirk of this satanic science.

Conceding the shirk of this satanism, the Satanists themselves say:

“Many BioGeometry’s principles are based on the harmonious effects of sacred power spots and subtle energy (which is shaitaani energy – The Majlis)……..The earliest humans would place a special rock (specialized by Iblees – The Majlis) in that location to mark it and to amplify those different energy qualities. As time progressed, that rock turned into obelisks, statues and eventually places of worship.”


And this idolatry, shirk and kufr constitute the fundamental basis for Dr.Karim’s shaitaani BioGeometry science.

Sacred Geometry

The Satanists say:

“Sacred Geometry refers to universal patters used in the design of sacred architecture and sacred art. Its roots are in ancient temple sciences and esoteric practices…..

  BioGeometry unites ancient Egyptian energy science with modern tools for fulfilling contemporary needs. It embraces holistic and practical intelligence and applies lost secrets of Sacred Geometry to elevate modern living.”

The kufr and shirk are manifest in this satanic science. From the Islamic perspective there is nothing sacred in art and ancient architecture. Everything of this ‘sacred art’ is kufr and shirk. The originator of sacred art is Iblees himself. He was the first being who had prepared a drawn picture of one of the Ambiya in the era prior to Nooh (Alayhis salaam). This picture, with the progress of time, became ‘sacred art’ which was worshipped, and later it developed into idols of stone. These forms and shapes of ‘sacred’ idols are the tools which so much fascinated the unfortunate Dr.Karim who structured his shaitaani science on this Ibleesi foundation of form and shape – the shapes of the pyramids of shirk and idols.

According to the Satanists, pyramids are ‘energy emitters’. Yes, they do emit shaitaani energy,. Shaitaan in fact also has ‘noor’ which is an ‘energy emitter’. With his ‘noor’, the Devil has obfuscated and corrupted the brains of these Satanists who practice biogeometry. Shaitaani inspiration and urination in their minds have caused such cognitive dissonance which has exploded their brains rendering these people incapable of understanding the snare of Iblees in which they have been trapped.

Assuming that there is any reality in the ‘energy’ emitted by the pyramids, it is nothing to be awed about. Shaitaan too emits energy. But Muslims are not permitted to utilize satanic energy which this satanic science claims to be emitting. Just ponder on the following kufr and shirk prescription:

“Pyramids and hemispheres are energy emitters that focus a penetrating carrier wave called Negative Green which gives these shapes strong communication properties that facilitate prayer and spiritual communion.”

Yes, it facilitates worshipping Shaitaan. It is the basis for the cults of satanism. Islam does not teach prayer and spiritual communion rising from a satanic base rooted in idolatry. The Auliya have confirmed that shaitaan deceives and entraps people into his plot of kufr and shirk by means of the ‘energy’ he emits from his ‘noor’. Some Aabideen due to lack of Ilm had ended up prostrating to Iblees. Shaitaan had imposed on their minds that the energy/noor they are observing is the Noor of Allah Ta’ala. This is the ultimate consequence of subscribing to these satanic sciences and modalities.

The Satanists say: “Vertical Negative Green has a preserving influence (as employed for mummification in the pyramids of Ancient Egypt.”

Mummification of human bodies as practices by the ancient mushriks of Egypt is inextricably associated with shirk. On the basis of this satanic science, even the Hindu and Buddhist idols emit energy which exercise ‘beneficial’ influences. But the Qur’aan Majeed explicitly and emphatically refutes this satanic hypothesis: These idols can neither benefit nor harm, says the Qur’aan Majeed. But in terms of the form and shape stupidity of the Satanists, the idols do have the ability to benefit and harm by virtue of their shapes and forms. Thus the slaves of the Devil say:

“However, it is important to note that Negative Green has two distinctive wave properties – horizontal and vertical. Horizontal Negative Green has a beneficial influence on living systems. Vertical Negative Green has a preserving influence (as employed for mummification in the pyramids of Ancient Egypt). Prolonged exposure to this vertical aspect is detrimental to living systems.”

This Satanist theory attributes harm and benefit to even idols which are worshipped by the mushrikeen. They have form and shape, hence in terms of the biogeometry satanic nonsense, these idols do have the ability to harm and benefit. The shirk of this Satanist science should be manifest to all thinking Muslims.

The Satanist, Karim has even brought the Mi’raaj of our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) within the purview of his Satanist theory. Thus the agent of Shaitaan said:

“I present to you this lecture about the astral journey of the prophet Mohammed from Mecca to Jerusalem as mentioned in the Holy Quran and the spiritual ascension that has been included as part of our Moslem prayer. I further explain the scientific background and methodology of Out-of-body experiences as well as permanent connection to the highest spiritual dimensions perceived by the heart intellect that is part of our being.”

This is a drivel lumping of words to accord a ‘scientific’ explanation for the Mu’jizah of Mi’raaj which the Karim character explains was a ‘spiritual’ experience. The Mi’raaj was NOT a spiritual experience. It was not an ‘out-of-body’ experience. It was a real physical journey miraculously accomplished by the command of Allah Ta’ala. It defies every theory and logic of science. There is absolutely no scientific explanation for the Mi’raaj. It was a pure Mu’jizah enacted by the decree of Allah Ta’ala. There is no rational explanation, that is, rationality as understood by the atheists, for the Mi’raaj or for any act of Mu’jizah. Karim’s theory and explanation of Mi’raaj is plain kufr.

It is haraam for Muslims to adopt any of the satanic advices of the Satanists who peddle this shaitaani biogeometry cult. It is kufr an shirk.

BIOGEOMETRY SHIRK – ANCIENT SHIRK – OLD WINE IN A NEW BOTTLE

It is the shirk of the ancient Egyptians, of the Hindus and of the Buddhists. All SHIRK is a single breed of KUFR. The scientific definition of shirk does not change the kufr status of shirk. The shaitaan’s bait to entrap Muslims into this snare of SHIRK is the chimera of Asmaaul Husna.

Biogeometry is also referred to as ‘sacred geometry’. Its origin is in idolatry, especially the type of idolatry of Fir’oun and the ancient Egyptian mushrikeen. The ancient concept of this brand of idolatry and shirk as defined by the Satanists themselves is:

    “Sacred geometry refers to universal patterns used in the design of sacred architecture and sacred art. Its roots are in ancient temple sciences and esoteric practices…”

Ancient temple sciences and esoteric practices are SHIRK and are inextricably associated with idol-worship.

The Satanists further that “Biogeometry is the design language of energy and shape.”

Shapes and forms emit energy in terms of this concept of shirk. These emissions exercise both beneficial and harmful influences. This is precisely what the mushrikeen of all ages believe in. Ancient Egyptians, Hindus, Buddhists and all breeds of idolaters believe that their stone idols have powers by which they exercise beneficial and harmful influences on people. Idols have form and shape.

The Satanists say that biogeometry is “the patented science of using the energy principles of shape”. The ancient idols, viz., Wadd, Suwaagh, Yagooth, Ya-ooq, Nasr, etc. which were worshipped   during the era  of Nabi Nooh (Alayhis salaam) and prior  to his age, were objects  of form and shape which the mushrikeen believed had the power of granting benefit or inflicting harm. That is why they prayed to the idols. This is precisely what these Biogeometry Satanists believe. Thus they say:

“Pyramids and hemispheres are energy emitters that focus a penetrating carrier wave  called Negative  Green which gives these shapes strong communication properties that facilitate prayer and spiritual  communion………

 Vertical Negative Green has a preserving influence as employed for mummification in the pyramids of Ancient Egypt. Prolonged exposure to this vertical aspect is detrimental to living systems.”

In simple terms: These shapes and forms – the pyramids, idols and the like – have the power to benefit and to harm. Thus, stone constructions such as the pyramids and stone idols have the power of emitting beneficial and harmful influences according to the biogeometry ideology of modern-day mushriks masquerading as scientists and even as Muslims. They have presented ancient shirk in a new bottle painted with scientific hues. But the contents are the same old shirk which is vehemently condemned in the Qur’aan Majeed and Ahaadith.

The ancient mushrikeen believed in such powers of their false deities. Referring to this false and baseless belief of the mushrikeen, the Qur’aan Majeed records the statement of the mushrikeen against Nabi Hood (Alayhis salaam). Refuting the Nabi’s call of Tauheed, the mushrikeen said:

“We only say to you that some of our gods have afflicted you with a malady.”

This belief of the Mushrikeen comes within the scope of the Negative Green Wave” theory propounded by the biogeometry mushrikeen of our age. Refuting this stupid negative green wave for which is asserted the power of benefit and harm, the Qur’aan Majeed states:

“Say: ‘Do you worship besides Allah that (idols) which cannot harm nor benefit you?”                                 (Al-Maaidah, Aayat 76)

   What! Do you take as friends besides Allah, that which cannot benefit nor harm you?”                                (Ar-Ra’d, Aayat 16)

  What! Can they not see (understand) that it (the calf idol) cannot reply to them nor does it have the ability to harm them nor benefit them?

                                        (Taa Haa, Aayat 89)

 They took (worshipped) deities (idols) besides Allah whilst they (the idols) cannot create anything, but they are made (by the hands of people), nor do they have the ability to harm or benefit themselves, not do they have the power over death and life nor over resurrection.”   (Al-Furqaan, Aayat 3)

There are many more Qur’aanic Aayaat  which categorically refute power of any kind for these shapes and form, i.e. idols which the mushrikeen of all ages  worshipped  and even today worship with the corrupt  belief  of  these idols  being able to  benefit  and harm  just as  the stupid, satanic biogeometry Satanists are propounding. Muslims should not allow themselves to be beguiled and trapped in the shirk of these biogeometry  mushrikeen  who  are offering ancient shirk and kufr in a new bottle painted with ‘scientific’ colours.

WHO WAS REALLY BORN ON DECEMBER 25th???

When Nimrod, the founder of Babylon, died, Semiramis told the people that her husband’s spirit had taken possession of the sun. She encouraged the people to pay homage to her husband by worshipping the sun. Thus began the evil practice of sun worship. Later on when Semiramis gave birth to a son by the name of Tammuz, she hid her licentious form of living by lying to the people. She told them that she was miraculously overshadowed by the spirit of her dead husband, Nimrod, and it was in this way she was able to bring forth this so-called “son of god.”

Semiramis also declared that her son, Tammuz, was in actuality the return or rebirth of her husband, Nimrod. Hence through this teaching the doctrine of reincarnation was born. And since Tammuz was born on December 25, this day was highly honored and recognized by Nimrod’s supporters. Note, therefore, that this date (December 25) was observed in honor of the birth of Tammuz long before Christianity existed, and that it was not until many centuries later this pagan custom was “Christianized” as being the birthday of Christ (or Christmas day).

The similarity between some of the ancient pagan beliefs and the truth is notable. Those who existed after the Flood knew the true prophecies of God very well because the Creator had made His plans known unto all the descendants of Adam and Eve. Therefore, it was not difficult for Satan to counterfeit the truth with erroneous applications. The notable writer Alexander Hislop tells us:

“If there was one who was more deeply concerned in the tragic death of Nimrod than another, it was his wife Semiramis, who, from an originally humble position, had been raised to share with him the throne of Babylon. . . In life her husband had been honored as a hero; in death she will have him worshipped as a god, yea, as the woman’s promised seed, ‘Zero-ashta,’ who was destined to bruise the serpent’s head, and who, in doing so, was to have his own heel bruised.” The Two Babylons, p. 58-59.

Of course, because of the deifying of her husband, it was not long before Nimrod’s followers began to also worship Semiramis. And her son Tammuz (Zero-ashta) was worshipped as well. More and more Semiramis was revered by the people and was viewed by many as a priestess and goddess. Later on she also became known as “the queen of heaven.” Thus began the awful practice of exalting human deities. These false beliefs have led up to the many different forms of idolatry that are still practiced by different people today. Yes, it was through the introduction of these satanic evils and the many sacrilegious practices of ancient Babylon that witchcraft, priestcraft, spiritualism, and other forms of paganism were born. Says the well-known author Ellen G. White:

“The doctrine of man’s consciousness in death, especially the belief that spirits of the dead return to minister to the living, has prepared the way for modern spiritualism.” The Great Controversy, p. 551.

The FIFA “Tablighi Karguzari”

Please comment on the under mentioned message. I am not sure how credible this message is.

“FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Karguzari 

MashaAllah Karguzari of 21 Jamats of Raiwind Markaz making efforts on the eve of Fifa World Cup in Qatar under the Mashwera of elders 

Alhamdulillah upon the request & Taqaza of Qatar Markaz Elders in Raiwind Ijtema, 2 months ago, our  Elders Sheikh Maulana Nazarur Rehman, Sheikh Maulana Ibrahim Dewla, Sheikh Qari Zubair & others decided to send 21 Jamats for the efforts of Deen

The way of work by above mentioned jamats is that, they do short bayan after Fajr salah, then mashwara. After slight rest, they gather for Taalim from 10 am & do remaining fikr along with any taqaza (requirement) for that area. 

Efforts of Deen among FIFA guests are done after asr salat. There are some zones namely “fan zones” where guests are available. Our saathis used to spread amongst them in various zones & do ikram with dates, juice, water, fruits, etc.

When guests saw the Jamaats in Sunnah Appearance they reach us themselves. Ma’sha’Allah we don’t need to reach them. Maximum of them address jamat as “tableegh, tableegh”. They understood from beard, cap, turban.

We do remember some guests came towards us & revealed that their grand & GREAT grand father was Muslim. They became Christian. May Allah forgive.Efforts is going amongst guests. Thousands of various language-based Preachers from ministry of religion (Govt of Qatar) has been given responsibility for guests of various countries. Daily 5 to 7 are getting blessed with Wealth of Islam. 

An incidence of few days back,One Croatian citizen, American passport holder, came to Qatar. By seeing culture and akhlaq of Qatarian arabs, after returning to New York, he met with imam (son of our late Maulana Abdul Aziz) of local masjid, expressed his desire and embrraced Islam. After that, within few days, he made more 25 persons of his family  embrace Islam. Work is going on. Allah is putting impact of His work anywhere thru’ this noble efforts . It’s not known, on whose crying &Fikr ,Allah will give Hidayah . One doesn’t know that his dawat to that Croatian helped to embrace Islam & ultimately helped to convert more than 25. Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah. Allah is doing everything. Make dua for us. AssalamuAlaikumwarahmatullahewabaraqatuhu.”

The above is verbatim reproduction of a ‘karguzari’ by a tablighi.

COMMENT (By Mujlisul Ulama):

The Tableegh Jamaat is really not concerned with Islam and Imaan whose objective is the Pleasure of Allah Ta’ala and Aakhirah, and this is acquirable only by total submission to the Shariah which is the uncompromising Divine Ideology – the product of Wahi. Thus, everything must be viewed and scaled on the criterion of this Shariah, and nothing else. Results, benefits, advantages, number of converts gained, sitting on the Arsh by a tablighi buzrug or dreams of felicitation and the like have no role in this determination.

But these tablighis assign their methodology and ideology a greater pedestal than the Shariah which they believe could be compromised for promoting their ideology to which they have added a new satanic principle, Ihaanatul Muslim (Disgracing Muslims) after the excision of their principle of Ikraamul Muslim (Honouring Muslims) emanating as a consequence of the daggers the opposing Tablighi camps have drawn for their oppositions. Thus the two mutually oppugnant camps of this fallen jamaat consider it an act of great merit to violently assault each other, and to demonstrate their goondagerryabilities.

Their objective is their specific methodology of ‘tableegh’ which has greater significance   for them than even the Masnoon Salaat and the Ahkaam of the Shariah in general. That is why they almost always abandon the Shariah and compromise the Deen’s teachings for promoting their own methodology. When any hukm of the Shariah clashes with their innovated methodology, they set aside, misinterpret and even reject the Shar’i hukm. Their ambassador, Tariq Jamil is a prime example of their leadership of misguidance.  For example, their kitaab-reading immediately after Fardh Salaat is of greater importance to them than the Sunnatul Muakkadah Salaat following after the Fardh. Their methodology has greater importance that the Shariah’s laws applicable to Purdah and the like.

It is haraam to go to a haraam place and compromise with haraam even if the intention is tableegh just as it is haraam to intentionally go to a brothel, smile and dine with the prostitutes, then convert one or two, then climb on the roof cackling like a hen who has just laid an egg.

Furthermore, these people are adept in the art of hallucinating and fabricating dreams to promote their ideology. They are also adept bootlickers of officials, the wealthy and western professionals. They suffer acutely from mental inferiority, hence the conversion to their cause of a doctor or an engineer is a huge feather in their cap.

Whatever is stated in the “Fifa karguzari’ is stupid fifa bunkum disgorged for promoting the ideology of the tablighi sect, not the Shariah/Deen of the Sunnah.

Difference between إنشاءلله and إن شاء الله

By Mubashir Hussain

Throughout the Qur’an and ahadith we found the meaning If Allāh wills written as إن شاء الله.

Both have different meanings in Arabic grammar. 
إنشاء لله 
Means contruction/creation

So that is definitely wrong. How can you construct/create Allāh? That’s absurd.We seek refuge in Allah from this (meaning)!

It is
إن شاء الله
if God willing

In the Grammar of Nawh

1. In is shartiyah [conditional].
2. Sha’ is fi’l madhi m’aruf [active past tense verb]
3. Allah is ismu jalalah [the Exalted Name] and the doer of the action sha’, according to grammatical analysis.

It is mentioned in Tafsir Tabari

:
إن عجبتم من إنشاء الله إیاكم

In another place:
إنّ فی إنشاء الله السحاب

In these two statements, the word insha’ is present and the meaning of the word in both these statements is, ‘to create’. In the above statements, the root word insha’ is the mudaf [possessed], and the doer, i.e., Lofty Name (Allah) is the mudaf ilayh [possessor]. The meanings are, “Allah’s creation of you” and “Allah’s creation of the clouds”. The purpose of mentioning this is, even if insha’ is considered as mudaf [possessed], the purpose of saying in sha’ Allah will be nullified. Because, when we say in sha’ Allah,we hand over the results of our deeds to the Divine Will of Allah and seek help from Him. But, when we write insha’ Allah in the form of mudaf and mudaf ilayh, the meaning becomes “creation by Allah”, which is not our intended meaning.

We should use إن شاء الله and write in English with three words In Sha Allāh.

Text without Context: The Rise of Evil Extremism

By Mohmand Afghan

1- It has been reported:

وقال أيضا عمر لابن عباس: كيف يختلفون وإلههم واحد وكتابهم واحد وملتهم واحدة؟
فقال: إنه سيجيء قوم لا يفهمون القرآن كما نفهمه

Omar asked Ibn Abbas: ‘𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘔𝘶𝘴𝘭𝘪𝘮𝘴 𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘓𝘰𝘳𝘥 𝘪𝘴 𝘖𝘯𝘦, 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘉𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘪𝘴 𝘖𝘯𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘙𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘪𝘴 𝘖𝘯𝘦?’
Ibn Abbaas replied: ‘𝘛𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘢 𝘱𝘦𝘰𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘘𝘶𝘳’𝘢𝘯 𝘢𝘴 𝘸𝘦 𝘥𝘰.’
[‘Al-Bidayah wa al-Nihayah’, 7/276].

2- The Prophet said to his companions:

إن منكم من يقاتل على تأويل القرن كما قاتلت على تنزيله

‘𝘈𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘨 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘪𝘴 𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘧𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘪𝘯 [𝘥𝘦𝘧𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘳𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘵] 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘵𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 [𝘵𝘢’𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘭] 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘘𝘶𝘳’𝘢𝘯, 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘢𝘴 𝘐 𝘧𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘵 [𝘪𝘯 𝘥𝘦𝘧𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦] 𝘰𝘧 𝘪𝘵𝘴 𝘳𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 [𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘻𝘦𝘦𝘭].’
[“Mustadrak ‘ala Sahihayn”, 4685 – حديث صحيح].

3- Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalani said:

أنهم كانوا يتأولون القرآن على غير المراد منه

‘𝘛𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘘𝘶𝘳’𝘢𝘯 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘵𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘥 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘘𝘶𝘳’𝘢𝘯.’
[‘Fath al-Bari’, 12/25].

4- Ibn Taymiyah said:

وكانت البدعة الأولى مثل بدعة الخوارج، إنما هي من سوء فهمهم للقرآن، لم يقصدوا معارضته، لكن فهموا منه ما لم يدل عليه

‘𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘪𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘭𝘺 𝘒𝘩𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘫 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘥𝘶𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘮𝘪𝘴𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘘𝘶𝘳’𝘢𝘯. 𝘛𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘥𝘪𝘥 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘰𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘘𝘶𝘳’𝘢𝘯, 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘪𝘵 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘵 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘴𝘢𝘺𝘪𝘯𝘨.’

——————–

So, don’t be fooled by people quoting Qur’an and Ahadith… the real question is: the Qur’an and Sunnah, according to the understanding of 𝘸𝘩𝘰𝘮?!

A 𝘥𝘢𝘭𝘦𝘦𝘭 may be correct, but its 𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘥𝘭𝘢𝘢𝘭 may be incorrect:

فليس كل دليل صحيح يكون الاستدلال به صحيحاً!

Our dispute with ISIS and other thugs is not about the texts themselves, it’s about the understanding of them.

The problem with these extremist Khawarij is not that they lack evidences… they can cite plenty of evidences. Their problem is with their dark-reading of the texts and their foolish and outlandish interpretations!!

About Using Sufi Terminologies or Unclear Statements to Justify Shirk

By Brother Muhammad Sabih

Some people when they completely fail to justify beliefs like a creation having detailed knowledge of everything in universe, control over it, etc., they resort to tertiary citations. They will not use Qur’an, Sunnah, or the standard creedal works of the school they claim adherence to (Ash’arism, Hanbalism, or Maturidism). What they will do is provide you some citations of much later scholars or use some terms of Sufis without properly contextualizing those statements. These are the things which entertain a duality of meanings, such as:

– Mazhar of Allah’s attributes

If is is said that Rasulullah is the Mazhar of attributes of Allah(swt), there is a Tawhid compliant meaning and a Shirk compliant meaning. The Shirk compliant meaning is that Rasulullah became an all-knowing being, etc., this is the Isma’ili view about their Imams. The Tawhid compliant view is that God’s Uluhiyyah reflected as the act of creation of a man who was a complete and perfect ‘Abd of Allah(swt) telling people how to worship Allah (swt), or a manifestation of mercy of Allah(swt) was to send Rasulullah(sa) to us.

– Awliya as pillars

There is a concept that Awliya are the pillars of universe. There is again a Tawhid compliant understand and a Shirk compliant understanding. The Shirk compliant understanding is that these Awliya literally control the universe and if they wish so or with a gesture of their eye, entire universe will collapse. The Tawhid compliant view is that it is Allah(swt) who does not punish the inhabitants due to presence of His slaves, this can be argued directly from our texts, such as day of judgement occurring when there won’t be a believer and the verse that Allah(swt) won’t punish them when you are there.

– Khalifah of Allah

The Tawhid compliant understanding is that man enacts will of Allah(swt) and is supposed to establish His worship, His rule on earth. A number of classical authorities did not probelmatize this Istilah, some did. The Kufri/Shirki view is that God is succeeded by Fulan or God has a second-in-command.

– Faiz of fulan

There is a concept that such and such affairs are “faiz” of such and such Wali. There is a Shirk compliant understand which is that these affairs are managed by that Wali, the Tawhid compliant understand is that Allah(swt) sends His Barakah due to presence of righteous. Such as  how it is reported that many Barakat were taken away when Uthman(ra) was assassinated, or how its mentioned in the narration that you will be given victories over enemies especially for first three generations

– Zikr of Awliya

It is also an acceptable type of Wasilah and practice that one remembers the Awliya and sends blessing upon them. Loving the righteous is a good deed of Qalb which you tell Allah(swt) that you love the prophet or the Awliya or even the Ummah and its oppressed people, so Oh Allah, due to this good deed of mine, accept my Du’as. Then there is an area which is not problematic from a creedal perspective but it should not be practiced, it is to invoke names for the sake of Barakah. The Shirk compliant interpretation is that the Awliya listen to you and can grant to you anything you need.

– Wahdat ul Wujud

This one is controversial. The Tawhid compliant view is that everything’s importance or value tends to zero infront of Allah(swt) as if its not there or everything’s existence was granted by Allah(swt) and dependent on Allah(swt) to such a sublime dependence that its as if the real existence is of Allah(swt). The Shirk compliant view is that creation is God.

– Kashf as a source of knowledge

The absolutely Qat’i principle is that dreams or claims of meeting angels or whatever have you is Dhanni that is subject to insertion by Shayateen, one’s own imagination, forgetfulness, etc., so they can not become source. The only way to benefit from them is to present them infront of the Mutawatir Din what we have, if a kashf   does not contradict it then you may be free to benefit from it.

– Istighatha as poetic or other expressions

This one does not need a lot of elaboration

Question: Are these scholars to blame for the ambiguity in terms?

Answer: It depends, claiming terms and concepts is a continuous battle and every generation of scholars is responsible for guarding the understanding from corruption. The mere corruptibility in the sense that Allah has allowed evil to use its way, does not mean anything. So people can also flip the concept of miracle and use it for Shirk. They can also flip Mutawatir Nusus.

The key point is that whenever someone wants to intimidate you into the very clearly Shirki belief of considering a creation knowledgeable over every thing, being able to help everyone with all his Ikhtiyari acts, using kalam of Sufis like Shah Isma’il, Shah Waliullah, Kurani, Imdadullah, etc., you need to ask that person to present citations proving that belief clearly without any ambiguity. You will find that even the scholars like Ibn Hajar al-Haythami who were not careful with their choice of words held the belief that Prophet only hears near the Qabr, not everywhere.

Furthermore, the very mindset of using the “grey area” against the clear and mutawatir concepts from Qur’an, Sunnah, and what the creedal schools agree upon by consensus, and what reason affirms with absolute certainty, that in and of itself is problematic. I have asked many people to tell me that after their belief (that XYZ knows every thing in Universe, listens everywhere, can help everyone with all needs), whats the sense of miracles or the concept of Du’a or the Ma’rifah of Allah(swt) or the Shirk of Pagans and there is no answer. Its always throwing around a bunch of dubious tertiary citations. So muslims infact need to be taught how to approach knowledge. Anyone can literally justify anything with such an approach.

Our Closest Family Members may be our Enemies

Our closest family members may be our enemies:

The Prophet Ya’qub said to his son Yusuf:


قَالَ یَـٰبُنَیَّ لَا تَقۡصُصۡ رُءۡیَاكَ عَلَىٰۤ إِخۡوَتِكَ 
فَیَكِیدُوا۟ لَكَ كَیۡدًاۖ إِنَّ ٱلشَّیۡطَـٰنَ لِلۡإِنسَـٰنِ عَدُوࣱّ مُّبِینࣱ

‘𝗠𝘆 𝘀𝗼𝗻, 𝗱𝗼 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝘁𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝗿𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗱𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗺, 𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗺𝗮𝘆 𝗽𝗹𝗼𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗺 𝘆𝗼𝘂. 𝗦𝗮𝘁𝗮𝗻 𝗶𝘀 𝗺𝗮𝗻’𝘀 𝗼𝗽𝗲𝗻 𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗺𝘆.’ [Qur’an 12:5].

Ibn al-‘Arabi al-Maliki explained:


حكم بالعادة من الحسادة بين الإخوة والقرابة 

‘𝘐𝘵 𝘩𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘢𝘤𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘦𝘯𝘷𝘺 𝘮𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘤𝘦 𝘣𝘦𝘵𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘣𝘳𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘤𝘭𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦𝘴.’
[‘Ahkam al-Qur’an’, 3/38].

“O you who believe! Verily, among your wives and your children there are enemies for you; therefore beware of them! But if you pardon (them) and overlook, and forgive, then verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
[Surah At-Taghabun (64:14)]

We often think that all our family relatives are our well-wishers and that our only enemies are distant outsiders.

In reality, our closest family members, who reside within our own homes – may be our direct enemies!

Like sheep, we may spend our entire lives fearing the big bad wolf – but in the end, we get slaughtered and eaten by the shepherd.

It is best to remain vigilant.

Refuting the Contention that Queen Elizabeth II was a Descendant of Holy Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)

Most of the readers might have come across a report or heard of it in the past few years which claimed that the lineage of the now deceased Queen of Great Britain, Elizabeth II, can be traced back 43 generations to the Prophet of Islam. This news was propagated so much that The Economist, Newsweek, Times of London, Observer, Daily Mail and other newspapers around the world printed this on their front pages. Muslim nations too showed great interest in this news.

To begin, we shall briefly mention as to when and by whom this claim was first made, after which we shall examine its reality.

In the United Kingdom (UK), there is an organization called Burke’s Peerage that researches the genealogies of the British aristocracy. This institution was established in 1828 and since then it has been publishing books on genealogies of various celebrities once in a while.

In 1986, a publication of this institution served a report claiming that the British royal family had Arab blood running through their veins and that their lineage was traced back to Hadhrat ‘Ali.

Rather, the director of the institution also wrote a letter to the then British Prime Minister that after this revelation, the security of the Queen of Great Britain should be beefed up for now her life may be in danger.

Since the Internet was not common at that time and social media did not even exist, therefore this news did not become viral. However, it raised its head again in 2015 and the so-called ‘Mufti’ Ali Gomaa, the Grand Mufti of Egypt mentioned it as if adding fuel to the fire. Speaking to an Egyptian television channel, he said that “a member of the Bani Hashim clan was arrested in Britain and forcibly converted to Christianity. He is said to have been the grandfather of Queen Elizabeth II, this is a documented and complex matter; books have been written about this in Arabic and English.”

Ali Gomaa’s claim that Queen Elizabeth’s grandfather was a Muslim was completely baseless. The Burke’s Peerage report goes back many centuries and links her lineage to Muslims.

At the same time, a Moroccan weekly Al-Sahifa Al-Ousbouia published a detailed 43 ancestral genealogy of the Queen and traced her lineage back to Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as if it were a seal of approval.

Regarding this, a newspaper (sarcastically) wrote that now the Queen of Great Britain has also got the right to rule over all the Muslim countries of the world.

According to the detailed genealogies printed in the newspapers, a thousand years ago, one of the ancestors of the Queen of Great Britain was a woman who belonged to the Muslim royal family of Andalusia and she was a Muslim.

The readers may be aware that Muslims have ruled Spain for many centuries. During this time, various royal families ruled there. One of them is known as Bani Abbad which ruled the area of Seville from 1023 to 1091 during the reign of Muluk al-Tawa’if (small kingdoms). The third and last ruler of this dynasty was Mu’tamid bin Abbad who was also a great poet.

The Imprisonment of Mu’tamid bin Abbad:

During the reign of Mu’tamid, Yusuf bin Tashfin, a warrior from North Africa, attacked Andalus and captured a large part of it and added it to his empire. Nasim Hijazi has also written a historical novel on the same Yusuf bin Tashfin and called him a great hero.

While Yusuf bin Tashfin defeated the Christian rulers, he also integrated various Muslim states into his rule. The state of Mu’tamid also came under the same. In fact, the pious hard-working Berber tribesmen did not take kindly to lavish lifestyle of Mu’tamid and they arrested and sent him to Morocco, where he died in prison.

Mu’tamid and the Queen of Britain:

According to the genealogy presented in the newspaper Ousbouia, the same Mu’tamid had a daughter named Zayda. When Yusuf bin Tashfin defeated Mu’tamid, this Zayda went to the Christian region of Castile, where she was included in the harem of the ruler Alfonso VI. After this, the pages of history are hidden in the mist of uncertainties. Some historians believe that Zayda gave birth to Alfonso’s daughter Isabella, who continued his lineage, while others believe that Isabella’s mother was someone else. However, according to the first opinion, a great-granddaughter of the same Isabella, Isabella of Castille, was married to Prince Edmund of Langley on July 13, 1372. This is the same Edmund of Langley who happens to be the ancestor of Queen Elizabeth II.

According to this hypothesis, they are related to the Arabs through Zayda, therefore, the ancestry of the former Queen of Great Britain (i.e. Elizabeth II) is also connected to the Prophet of Islam. This story is certainly strange, but there are big flaws in it.

Firstly, Zayda’s lineage can definitely be traced back to Queen Elizabeth II, but to recognise Zayda’s relationship to Mu’tamid is difficult. It is certain that the ancient Spanish historians have referred to Zayda as the daughter of Mu’tamid but according to the Muslim sources of that period, Zayda was not the daughter of Mu’tamid but she was his daughter-in-law. It is obvious that Muslim sources are more reliable in this regard.

Secondly, even if Zayda is considered to be the daughter of Mu’tamid even then, it is difficult to prove that Mu’tamid was from the descendants of Hadhrat Ali and Hadhrat Fatima (Allah be pleased with them).

According to the Burke’s Peerage, the family tree of Mu’tamid goes up and meets Zahra bint Husayn in the 12th chain, who in turn, was the grand-daughter of Imam Hasan.

Now the issue is that there is no mention of any daughter named Zahra of Husayn bin Hasan (his real name was Zayd, surname was Abu’l Husayn) in the authentic books of history. He had three children, Hasan bin Zayd (who became the governor of Madinah during the Abbasid period), Muhammad (who passed away in his infancy) and a daughter named Nafisa. Thus, Mu’tamid being the descendant of Hadhrat ‘Ali or Hadhrat Fatima cannot be proved.

The bottom line of all this discussion is that the lineage runs on the father’s side, and there are not two or four, but 13 women in the family line from the Queen to Hadhrat ‘Ali. But even if this factor is ignored then too Queen Elizabeth’s alleged lineage depends on Zayda, but according to authentic records, she is not the daughter of Mu’tamid. On the other hand, it is unclear whether Zayda’s lineage continued or not. Even if it is accepted that it continued, and if it is also accepted that Zayda was indeed the daughter of Mu’tamid, then the problem arises of Mu’tamid himself being a Sayyid because it depends on Zahra bint Abu’l Husayn bin Hasan, but her existence is not proved in history.

Therefore, the whole study of Burke’s Peerage or Al-Sahifa Al-Ousbouia, is nothing but an attempt to build a castle in the air. No matter how much it is stretched, whomever has the Queen descended from, but her being a descendant of the Holy Prophet can never be proved.

Therefore, atleast in this issue, they do not need additional security, nor do they have the right to rule over the Muslim countries of the world!

On “Overpopulation” Myth Created by the West

By Mohmand Afghan

There is no overpopulation crisis, there are no food shortages – it is just a mismanagement of resources, due to capitalistic human greed. A single grain planted in the earth gives back 500 grains in return!

Planet earth is vast … it survived meteor strikes, dinosaurs, volcanoes, floods, etc… do you really think it’s going to collapse because of some cows farting or some plastic bags we use?!

No , planet earth will be fine – but yes, we do need to look after it, it’s our home.

The real reason why some upper-class people are pushing this narrative of overpopulation is because: the average lower-class families in the poor third-world countries are having 5-6 kids and in the rich countries upper-class families are having 1-2 kids.

For example Japan, which is a rich country – its current population is 120 million – but by the year 2100, Japans population is predicted to be 75 million!!!

There will be a lot of elderly people, and very few young people to run these countries, to the point that they will struggle to sustain these economies.

The Pew Research Institute (2015) forecasted that shortly after 2050, Islam will be the biggest religion in the world with almost 1 in 3 people being Muslim.

To keep this population balance, and prevent getting outnumbered even more: the upper-class push this idea of overpopulation and introduce birth control, etc.

Unless they start growing motherless babies in labs … these dynamics cannot be reversed.

It is important to remain vigilant and never follow what is being said on auto-pilot.

Maintain your critical thinking….
