The Jahiliyya Trend of The Muslims
The Jahiliyya that is still existing among Muslims continue to divide their conscience and sentiments. This jahiliyya is ancestor worship, ancestor veneration, that is glorification and admiration of pagan polytheistic and misguided ancestors who lost their ways from God. Muslims must pride themselves in the tradition of monotheists whoever that may be even from distinct and different race or ethnicity. Islam guided us and our forefathers from their pagan and polytheistic ways. Glorification and admiration of our pagan forefathers is just an insult to God's gifts. We must remember our root and origin is in heaven and not in our pagan forefathers. Only the lost souls those who only see their roots in this earth venerate their misguided and polytheistic ancestors. We are not allowed to have intimacy, love and inclination towards these pagan ancestors.
Quran warns us not to find honor and glory in them
“Do they seek with them honor? But indeed, honor belongs to God entirely.” (Quran 4:139)
The misguidance of admiring our polytheistic forefathers
“And when it is said to them, "Follow what God has revealed," they say, "Rather, we will follow that which we found our fathers doing." Even though their fathers understood nothing, nor were they guided?” (Quran 2:170)
Our root is the heaven, not our ancestors or this earth
“Indeed, we belong to God, and indeed to Him we will return.” (Quran 2:156)
Our return is to God, not to our ancestors or their lands
“…to Him is the destination” (Quran 40:3)
Our loyalty is to God and our first and uniting identity is monotheism
“And [mention] when your Lord took from the children of Adam - from their loins - their descendants and made them testify of themselves, [saying to them], "Am I not your Lord?" They said, "Yes, we have testified." [This] - lest you should say on the day of Resurrection, "Indeed, we were of this unaware.” (Quran 7:172)
Having failed to defeat Islamic Republic the enemies have started polluting the minds of people of Iran by glorifying pagan Zoroastrian history into Iranian minds. It is like Jews today claiming they are Israelites. This same poisonous ideology was fed to the Arabs by Arab nationalism and reminding them why serve the Ottomans? This division is to make Muslims fight each other for Jahiliyya ancestor worship. Ima Khomeini envisioned this poison and prohibited nationalism. So today some Iranians want to boast about their pagan ancestors of Zoroastrians, some Egyptians about their pagan Pharaohs, some Tunisians about the pagan Carthage, some Turks about their Ottomans even though not all Ottomans were loyal to Islam, and so on with the other Muslim ethnicities. Muslim Jahiliyya into ancestor veneration is divisive, against monotheistic identity and against the requirement of “uniting on rope of God” in Quran 3:103. This jahiliyya must cease. The enemies of Islam want to use this secular construct of nationalism, racism and tribalism to make Muslims fight each other. An active example is the quarrel between Muslim brothers regarding the naming of a dead stretch of water: Persian Gulf vs Arabian gulf. Let’s name it gulf of Islam or gulf of Khomein, or gulf of Imams and be done with it! Let the Muslims create new history!!!
