Several moons ago, I was talking to a friend about an issue.
He claimed to be backing the war on terrorism. He was extremely adamant and I
made a statement which he could not reply to. I said, “A brainwashed person does
not complain about being brainwashed!” Why because he does not know he is
How does one get brainwashed? Look around you and you see
the same thing being presented to you continually and constantly.
We will save you
If you look at every movie about any major disaster and
you’ll be given one message. The west is going to save the world. Armageddon,
Deep Impact, 2012, Outbreak, Independence day, some superhero movies and so
forth. This is not about good film making it’s about re-enforcing the ideas
that the west is the best. The west is going to save you. Only the west can
So whenever there is problem in the world we expect western
governments to get involved. But do we ask the question if they are already
involved? Who is funding these rebels with guns?
For the last twelve years killing Muslims is seen as killing
terrorists. So now when we look at the problems in Sham. Why would anyone get
involved? They will fund two sides and watch them kill each other as they count
the profits made. This is what happened during the Iran and Iraq war of the eighties. The bad press that is aimed at Muslims fuels the fire for war because they claim we are evil and need to eradicated.
The media is but a tool to spread propaganda of war. Very
few media outlets carry credible information. Most are tools in spreading
hatred and racism to the brainwashed masses who do not ask nor question the
methods of those who act in their names. Through the media is permission sought for military intervention. The greatest massacres occur in print before innocents pay with their lives. The media have a role to impartial role to play yet they are biased and told what to print.
The main point that I am trying to make is that the Muslims
should help each other. We do not have a caliph and in its absence Muslim presidents
should help each other. The Arab and Muslim leagues have proven to be
ineffective. Their ineffectiveness was exposed when they sent observers to
Syria who seemed to have their eyes closed during the killings.
Why are we looking to others to clean up our mess? We need
to take some responsibility and work together to support each others economies
and as well as other types of assistance.
When things are going wrong in a country then we must come
together forward a resolution for the greater good of those involved. Instead
of looking on in silence as people are killed we should do something for the
The state of the Muslims could be changed overnight if we
chose to come together and work together. I am not talking about unity rubbish
rather I am talking about working together, that’s what we need. The trade of
oil to the west strengths their oppression upon the countries that they have
invaded. So we do not have anyone to blame but ourselves.
Look in the books of
fiqh and it’s unlawful to trade in any items that strengthen those against the
Muslims. Of course, the
normal person cannot do much but he can make others aware that we will not
stand for our leaders to be corrupt.
We have to apply fresh thinking and that does not include
putting ourselves or others into danger. We need to be able to sort our own
problems out and not allow countries to invade our lands.
I would like to see leaders who have guts to look into our
glittering past and take from the lessons of the four rightly guided caliphs
and lead like them. But who will stand? When most of them are flat on their faces
fast asleep whilst the common folk struggle to make ends meat.
If we can't trust politicians to
tell the truth about their expenses; how can we expect them to tell the trust
about international affairs!??! It’s easy to speak in public as all you need is
confidence. You do not even need any knowledge.
Our main problem is that we cannot see past the media and
their brainwashing. We are programmed during the evenings and speak about it the
next day. Why don’t we make our media sources with trust worthy reports instead
we rely on unsound information. How do we know any of it is true? We cannot be
sure because are supposed to confirm the information that comes from someone unrighteous,
so what would it be about someone with no faith who detests yours!
Look beyond what you are seeing. There is another story
being told that you can see the outlines for but not see the whole picture, so
use other sources of information that your television news. Free your mind and
think. Or are you not concerned that things are so wrong but you do not care.
The system is there to control manipulate your soul so be aware of this. Look at who benefits from a terrible event then you find red hands covered in blood. Historically many false flags have lead countries to war when the true reason is natural resources. Big companies who supply military products make money hand over fist as some brown person who they have never met dies in a drone operation.
The best means to alleviate the suffering of Muslims is by
sending money to those in need and of course supplication, especially for the
Muslims could change our situation overnight if we had some
guts. The west has not overpowered Muslim countries, it the Muslim countries who have empowered the west over us. And we have the audacity to blame others for our state. As long as we do that nothing will ever be solved.
Yet we are not concerning with anything except building empty buildings
and wasting valuable resources. So if none of this bothers then you are
brainwashed. So what am I calling you to? I am calling you to break the boundaries of thinking that have been placed upon you by the media. When you do this then you'll understand exactly why things happen and what your response should be.
If we cannot trust politicians to tell the truth about their expenses
then how can we expect them to tell the truth about foreign affairs?
The politicians and the evil people of the world have set the world on fire and who pays the price? The normal people peace loving people of the world. Who want to do nothing more than get on with their lives and live in peace. I refuse to buy into hatred so you can keep it and tell it to yourself. I don't listen to hatred from any fool. Its time the good people speak and silence the dissident voices of war.
Or do you chose to remain brainwashed? Like cattle consuming and not thinking at all.
O Allah please help the Muslim Ummah. May Allah
forgive us all.
