Liberating the Hijacked Islam

One set of Laws governing the physical universe, Laws that change for no one, challenged the essence of religion which preached that miracles could happen through circumventing these laws. Miracles essentially imply multiple Gods, multiple set of laws! Religion thrives on miraculous happenings. Mohammed’s teachings welcomed reason and logic. Through reason and logic one will always arrive at a correct conclusion. There is only One correct answer. There can be several wrong answers but only One correct answer.

” Indeed if you disbelieve what I preach, then come up with a reason.” The Quran condemned blind faith and promoted conviction. In reality it struck a death-knell to Organized Religion which preached blind faith. In harmony with these laws of Allah and by the Establishment of The System of Government

( Al Salat ) and The System of Economic Justice with charity towards all

( Al Zakat), Mohammed of Arabia was able to liberate mankind from the shackles of exploitation, superstition and religion. What followed was a spread of his order which like wild fire, over a period of just fifty years, engulfed half of the entire globe. From the sands of Arabia to the farthest outskirts of Asia and Africa, the mankind sang the song of Mohammed, the Quran. This meant Liberation from man made religion! Liberation from the shackles of priesthood! Liberation from the injustices of inequality! The Eid is indeed the traditional celebration, rejoicing Freedom and Liberation. It is celebrated in recognition and appreciation of this miraculous revelation called THE QURAN. [ Quran: Arabic, meaning , “A Proclamation of LIBERTY , for all times.” ]

The Quran is indeed a Charter of Liberty for the entire mankind. It liberated man from the shackles of religion, racial discrimination, economic inequality and granted free Justice . Thus post- Quran mankind dawned into an entirely new era. Indeed the Renaissance of Europe followed by the Industrial Revolution owes its glory to Mohammed of Arabia because of whose painstaking efforts mankind had been liberated from an age of Magic into an age of Reason. Who can deny that the liberation of human thought from the shackles of Religious superstition, the creation of a free society with equal opportunity and justice for all was the first great stride of mankind. This is how The Age of Reason dawned over Europe.
Mohammed’s Islam was in essence what we may call Quranocracy. Each man was his own priest. There was no middleman between man and God. No agents or priests to grant penance. No perverts listening to confessions. No Mullahs. No Pundits. No Clerics. No Mythology . No superstitious rituals. The hallmark was an establishment of The System of Government ( Al Salat and Al Zakat) creating an equal distribution of wealth in a society in which those with extra money were happy to part with what was over and above their needs in favor of the have-nots for a reward in the hereafter. A connection with the hereafter was the only practical way for the establishment of a stateless and classless society. Where Karl Marx failed, Mohammed succeeded. Within a period of fifty years the very cattle grazing Bedouins were now making great strides in the fields of Astronomy , Algebra and Medicine. They were head and shoulders ahead and above their Asian and European counterparts.

    Dear Doctor Asarulislam Syed Sahib
    As-salam-mu-laikum: You wrote: “Did you know that first Islamic State, founded by Muhammad, was based on the same ideals of equality and justice, on which a thousand years later, The United States of America was founded?”
    And I completely endorse it, and the explanations you have given, to understand Quranic facts have given me great hope once again. I have only recently read your articles, and message, and endorse your approach and mission and say : Jazak Allah may Allah Bless you-Ameen
    I too want to understand and become a part of the Muslim Renaissance today, by understanding the rise of Islam in the 7/8/9th centuries, it is one of the most important events in world history. As it led to the development of the modern day world.
    Once Muslims scholars understood the value of research, and invented & understood the fundamentals of the universe. But perhaps most important of all they pursued the cause of knowledge, translating and preserving the works of the ancients and building the world’s largest libraries – their quest for knowledge by questioning known as the ‘houses of wisdom’ laid the foundation for Oxford and Cambridge Universities. I believe this started the Age of Christian or Western Renaissance.

    Islam’s final message was the redemption of all earlier messages, through Muhammad [SAW]’s recorded in the Quran. But today the Muslims themselves have hijacked Muhammad [SAW]’s Islam, and made it into a priesthood.
    I have been protesting against it, I read the Quran, and it reaffirms, the fact, that Muhammad [SAW]’s mission was to revolt against priesthood, of mecca, 14,00nyears ago.
    It was a revolt against prevalent traditions, and liberated the human spirit, and addressed Men and Women simultaneously. The last sermon of Hajj further strengthens your topic ‘Liberating the Hijacked Islam’

    Surah Ra’ad
    “God will not change the condition of a people
    until they first change what is wrong in their hearts”

    Look at history, and learn from previous ideas even questioning them, if those ideas/theories were true than questioning them would not change anything as the truth can stand any questions.

    For example Galileo came up with the truth, because he questioned the ideas of authority, but Newton a great scientist, questioned Galileo, but Newton’s ideas were questioned by Einstein.

    Similarly all the Prophets questioned oppressive authority of their times. Quran is full of their examples; let’s take a look at how Abraham [pboh] questioned the prevalent ideas of his forefathers:

    Al Quran: 6 -76 -79: “When the night covered him over, He saw a star: He said: ‘This is my Lord.’ But when it set, He said: ‘I love not those that set. ‘When he saw the moon rising in splendour, he said: ‘This is my Lord.’ But when the moon set, He said: ‘unless my Lord guides me, I shall surely be among those who go astray. ‘When he saw the sun set he said: O my people I am indeed free from your [guilt] of giving partners to Allah. For me, I have set my face firmly and truly, towards him, who created the heavens and the earth, and never shall I give partners to Allah”
