Reforming Muslim Political Existence
There are two types of systems: alien foreign system and native local system. The Prophet PBUH changed the system of Arabia to Islam through dialogue and wars. The system of Arabia was foreign to Islam and the message of Islam was also foreign to Arabia.
The native local system is the system under which Muslims are. This can be Islamic or anti-Islamic or un-Islamic. Except Islamic republic of Iran, today’s Muslim systems are mixture between anti-Islam and un-Islamic. Anti-Islamic system is a system which actively fights political, social, economic and/or cultural Islam. Un-Islamic system is a passive system which has un-Islamic laws and allows some form of Islam in it.
Muslims must follow Imam Hussein to change their native local system. Imam Hussein started his struggle and movement with a call and awareness campaign. This campaign was against Yazid the infidel. Today Muslims lack Islamic political leadership in their native lands. Islamic republic of Iran cannot help unless there are movements in native Muslim countries. These political movements are being actively hunted down by anti-Islamic rulers.
It is individual duty of the true Muslims to take the matter of resistance in their hands. They must use their resources to spread awareness of Islam and what the enemies of Islam have done to Muslims and are doing. This campaign must be first political and intellectual. These true Muslims must resist the status quo by refusing to contribute to un-Islamic establishment either by voting them or by assisting them to have a grip on their power. However, Muslims must join this system to change the system from within and to empower the resistance by political facilitation. Political facilitation of Islam and resistance means promoting Islamic values, religious, intellectual, economic, social and/or cultural and fighting un-Islamic values.
The aim is to reach power for Islam. Why? First, it is because the land must be ruled by God through His religion to create justice and harmony for all and stop exploitation and transgression.
Quran 12:40 “Legislation is not but for Allah”
Quran 5:47 “And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the defiantly disobedient.”
And second, see the ending paragraph, as well as the legacy of colonialism we are facing today. Our society is in decay from secular diseases of pornification, free sex, feminism, a society based on temptation and sin, anti-family laws, economic exploitation and interest based financial system, corrupt rulers supported by foreign imperialists, abolishment of Islamic criminal laws which increased crimes and criminal activities and many other problems that Muslim society are facing today.
In native Muslim countries there are two systems: democratic and authoritarian. The democratic process must be infiltrated by Islamist either by forming Islamic political party or infiltrating the un-Islamic parties and/or security apparatus and civil service of the system.
If all these fails and the real Muslims are monitored and censored, then the last step is the military campaign as Imam Hussein did. To attain this, help of foreign nations/donors are needed given:
- This foreign aid does not support anti-Islamic block or establishment
- This does not hamper other Islamist movements and activities.
- This aid must not be conditioned with total submission to the foreigner unless
- The foreigner is an Islamic block or entity seeking to extend Islamic block and Islamic unity
Now this may take time, or it may be swift and Allah willing we will find victory and Islamisation of native countries or we may continue until the savior Imam Mahdi comes and we have prepared for him the mindset of the Ummah. All these steps and policies are part of the Jihad (struggle). The spirit of Islam and it’s heart the Holy Quran must be alive and beating in our native countries and among us. We will not accept the colonial legacy. We inherited Islam from our Prophet (PBUH) and Imams of Ahl Bayt and it was taken away by colonialism and force. We have not given up Islam!
This Islamic revival needs a great plan. A plan is a model towards an end. A plan is realized not only by its quality, which however is understood from past data, but essentially how the plan unfolds and realized by a chain of hands. The first step to realize plan is to believe in it. The next step is to make it work by forming collaboration. Collaboration will implement the detailed steps in the plan and make it work. The collaborators are all stake holders of the plan. The success of political Islam and Islamic revival is no different and is also a plan which starts by Muslim politicians' belief in it and subsequent collaboration. But Muslim politicians are dumb as new born monkeys!
A plan requires design and implementation study. It requires the identification of immediate obstacles and required resources. A resource is anything which will sustain and further the plan's success and survival.
For political Islam the plan to revive it has needs and obstacles.
Obstacles & Needs
Propaganda and psyops against it. Duty of Islamic activists not to play meek but go on the offensive through aggressive dialectics and practical activities such as study, falsification and verification.
Lack of Islamisation of education & human capital. This must start from Muslim governments. Islamisation means anything Islamic publicly implemented. For education system entire education must teach Muslim diaspora and Islam 101 so that everyone understands Islam and does not become Islamophobic in ignorance. In western countries immigrants and refugees are integrated by a form of brainwashing? Or rather call it education! Why won't Muslim countries also integrate people who do not understand the Muslim ways?
Muslim politicians' apathy and poor intelligence. This is a disease not only of Muslim politicians but of the entire secular political landscape. Muslims must learn from the historical caliphate of four caliphs, specially Imam Ali, how they were self learning always and self inquisitive.
Lack of their courage to stand up against bold aggression. Muslim diplomacy is not based on sustaining and survival of Islamic values and sentiments. Muslim diplomacy must always ensure Islamisation is not threatened but sustained and Muslim demography empowered culturally, spiritually and intellectually. Muslim diplomacy must not paralyze Islamic renaissance and resistance and must never abandon Muslim diaspora.
Muslim masses apathy and meekness can only be remedied by Islamisation of education and moralisation of economic and social activities.
Individual Muslim awareness should be persistently maintained and contribution to Islamic causes such as political Islamic activities, activists and sanction of anti Islamic activists and activities by preventing funding, doing exposure and shunning support must be standardized and evolved.
Collaboration and solidarity among Muslim demography are essential. It is sharing, informing, understanding, promoting and financing our culture, trade and technology among ourselves and among others. To maintain Islamic culture anti-Islamic culture must be censored.
Declare Islamic republic and allow time to adopt Islamic system. Declaration and implementation need not be simultaneous so that ignorant Muslims and non-Muslims have enough time to learn and understand Islamic system.
