Islams Reformers

The bigotry of the religion reformers or bigots of science who surfaced lately to blame all previous scholars, basic fundamental beliefs or practices

comprehended Allâhu

comprehended Allâhu ta’âlâ better than anybody did. However, in comprehending Allâhu ta’âlâ’s existence and Supperior Attributes, these philosophers have proved to be the most ignorant. A few of them mortified their flesh and endeavoured and shined their nafs by subduing it with methods that they had learned from prophets ‘alaihim-us-salawât-u-wa-t-taslîmât’ and from Muslim men of Tasawwuf, thereby attaining a few facts; they did not know, however, that purifying and shining the nefs, and anything attained in this manner, would be aberration. It is the heart that must be purified and shined. Purification of the nafs begins after the heart has become purified. The nûrs (spiritual lights) will make their entrance from the heart. Purifying the nafs before the heart has been purified is like providing the enemy with a light to support its night attack. The enemy whom the nafs helps is the devil. Yes happiness and truth can be attained also by starvation, by denying physical desires, by subduing the nafs and by reasoning. But this may be possible only after having believed in prophets and what they have brought from Allâhu ta’âlâ. For, all the statements made by prophets were reported by unerring angels. The devil cannot meddle with these teachings. As for those who do not follow these great persons, they cannot escape the devil’s deceit. Plato, one of the great ones of philosophers, attained the honour of being contemporary with ’Îsâ (’alaihi ’ssalâm). Yet he was vulgarly ignorant and presumed that he did not need to learn anything from anybody. He deprived himself of the divine blessing that he would have attained through that exalted prophet. “It is surprising that philosophers, i.e., those who suppose that reason never errs, deny not only Allâhu ta’âlâ but also the Last Judgement. They say that matter never stops existing and that everything goes on as they have come.” [Scientists’ words that are not based on experimentation and calculation incite this aberration. When French chemist Lavoisier [1] saw that matter did not cease to exist in chemical reactions, he said with his short mind that matter would never cease to exist. Upon hearing this, the progressives, being unable to think that Allâhu ta’âlâ’s Infinite Power could go beyond the laws of physics and chemistry, readily took his word for granted; [1] Antoine Laurent Lavoisier (1743-94), French chemist and physician. – 294 –

which did not conform with experiments or calculations. But when it was found out that matter ceased to exist and turned into energy in atomic fissions, in radioactive events and in nuclear reactions, those who believed Lavoisier were stupefied. It was understood that the progressives, who, being unable to comprehend that Lavoisier’s conclusion applied only to chemical reactions, said that nothing would cease to exist in nature, were wrong. It is a shame that thousands of imitators had been blindly tagging along behind this wrong belief until the truth revealed itself. Presuming Lavoisier’s words to be scientific, although they were merely expressions of a surmise mistaken for truth, they denied the the belief in Rising After Death, which caused them to die without îmân and drag into endless disasters only after imbuing many other people with their harmful ideas. Those who trusted the Ahl as-Sunna scholars and held to ’ilm al-hâl books did not fall for progressives, thereby saving their belief. The lessons taught in high school, university and the teachings pertaining to mathematics, matter and science are certainly useful. They protect intellect from erring in matters within its own limits. They help in discovering new things that provide people with a comfortable life and facilities in doing their work in the world. These branches of knowledge are utilized in worldly affairs and the things that can be discovered through intellect. By means of them, television, computer, radio, ultrasonic airplane, nuclear submarine, spy satellite, travel to moon and many other accomplishments can be achieved. These things are not against Islam; they are parallel to Islam and strengthen îmân. For, Islam conforms with science in all the branches of knowledge within reason. Reason, because it is able to find out the truth in these branches of knowledge, is compatible with Islam. Muslims should learn and utilize these things.] “It is a disgrace for men to utilize scientific findings in worldly affairs and, instead of utilizing them also in comprehending the teachings pertaining to Allâhu ta’âlâ and the Hereafter, to be complacent about these findings, to consign themselves to their sensuous indulgences and mental preferences, to try to solve the teachings pertaining to the Hereafter within their mental precincts, and to consequently deviate from the Islamic path. This case is like that of a person who prepares for war and goes into much labour and expense and who, when the time for war comes, – 295 –
