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

The principles

The principles concerning awqâf should not be discussed in such ignorant terms but by examining minutely. To be brief, fortunately the religious foundations have survived without changing up to now, and as the result, the properties which amount to almost half of the State’s budget have been reserved for the nation. If it had not been for the principles of religious foundations, may be this great wealth would have no longer existed today. 20 - The reformer says: “Many parasitical people live among Muslims today. Though it is declared that man has nothing but his labour, madrasas, imârets (food-kitchens for the poor) and dervish lodges get filled by millions of lazy, so not useful but harmful, people.” It is an âyat in the sûrat an-Najm which declares that man has no profit other than of his labour. Religion reformers mention this âyat very frequently but they understand its meaning little. Those who know the preceding and following âyats easily comprehend that this âyat is about the advantages pertaining to the next world. Moreover, men can utilize also the things which they do not work for. Inheritance is an evident example for this. This âyat declares that as one will not suffer harm from another’s guilt in the next world, so his advantage will be only what he deserves. Every Muslim has to try to work for the advantages of this world provided it will not harm the advantages of the next world. Such work is an ’ibâda, a religious duty. In urging people to work, it is out of place to interpret this âyat wrongly. It is appalling that the reformer regards students as parasites, and the imârets established for the benefit of the poor and the destitute, not as good places but as harmful places. There is no doubt that madrasas and imârets help education, culture and humanity. Should not we build hospitals for the poor, either? 21 - The reformer says: “Christianity also was fixed. They strove not to change it. Later, the rebellion of a Christian reformer spread out far and wide. The fixed, unchangeable rules fell down.” All the heavenly religions were fixed. The thing called “religion” must be stable. If it is changed by people, the new one will be called not a “religion” but “irreligiousness”. 22 - The reformer says: “The white may mix with the black race. The mulattos cannot establish a civilization. The spirit, that is, the common feelings, of – 30 –

each race will fade away. This theory put forth by Gustave Leubon has been witnessed by the Ottomans. With the foreign blood which mixed with their race as the result of the method of devşirme (recruiting boys to be brought up as Janissaries) and through concubines, the Ottoman spirit deteriorated. This added to their genius but spoiled their morals.” Gustave Leubon said, “Of the mixed races, the minority will die, their blood changing after a few generations.” Because the majority was Turkish in the Ottoman Empire, the Turks did not vanish but they increased in number and became stronger. Today, democracy has improved so far as to be said to be limitless in European countries, and races have been mixed altogether. Did this cause them to lag behind? There is not a pure race in the United States, where the mixture of various races has not prevented advancement in civilization. If they were honoured with being Muslims, their morals also would be perfect and the ancient Islamic civilization would enlighten the whole world. While races have mixed more in the course of history, there has not been any decrease in civilization. According to the reformer, people must have been more civilized in the old times when people mixed least. It is very unsound, and extremely ridiculous, to regard the mixing of races as the reason for the immorality or corruption which led the Ottomans to a catastrophic end. The one and only real cause of the corruption and immorality was the irreligiousness of the educated and the ignorance of the uneducated. The role of irreligiousness in worsening morals was much more effective than that of ignorance. It is for this reason that the educated irreligious are worse and baser. Therefore, survival of societies necessitates religious knowledge and a method of education based on religious knowledge. In order to prevent the fall of the Ottomans, those who wanted to rescue them from ignorance, which was yet their own disease, dragged them to the destruction of irreligiousness, which was more perilous, and thus they annihilated them altogether. 23 - The reformer says: “After caliphate increased the power of the Ottoman rulers, sultans became sort of semigods in the eyes of the people. A gesture on their part could cancel personal wealth, honour and even life. This dictatorial torment was feared more than Allah’s Hells were.” Islam’s first article at the head of all its constitutions have been – 31 –
