A Hujjah/Indictment against Said Rageah: a Muslim-Hatemonger

Standard

20191113_203912

Author’s-Note:

Said Rageah is a Muslim-Somalian/Canadian-National, whom is a Pseudo Person-Of-Knowledge. This Article is in Response to Said Rageah’s Comments, concerning Afro-Americans being largely Products of “1-Nite Stands”.

The Video is available here:

This Pontification/Claim of Said Rageah, as per Afro-Americans being Products of “1-Nite Stands” is the Kalām/Rhetoric of al-Buhtān/al-Humazah (Slander): a Major-Sin.(al-Kabā’ir/The Major-Sins, adh-Dhahabī). Also, this Posture is Islāmically-Unjust. Within his Heart is Pure-Evil. His Disgusting-Claim possesses absolutely 0-Merit. His Kalām is the Product of Pro-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia Slanderous-Rhetoric. His Xenophobic-Postures mimic the Jāhiliyyah of the Pagan-Arabs. And, what does Allah state, concerning the Arabs?!!! Allah states, “The Arabs are closest to Disbelief&Hypocrisy.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.9, V.97) Muhammad (Peace be upon him) stated, “Whomever imitates any People is of them.”.(Abū-Dāwud) He also stated, “Whomever calls to, fights for, dies upon the Path of al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobe isn’t from us.”.(Abū-Dāwud, as-Suyūtī)

I’m Personally-Disgusted via these Statements of Said Rageah, for 3-Reasons:

a. I’m Muslim-1st & this Xenophobic-Posture, not based upon any Credible-Evidence, is Diametrically-Opposed to Islāmic-Teachings.

b. I, myself, am Afro-American.

c. I know who the Fuck my Father is & I’ve never been the Product of a “1-Nite Stand”. And, I know whom the Rest of my Fathers are, as Allah states, “Address them via their Fathers.”.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.33, V.5)

These Untrue/Unjust-Claims of Said Rageah are a Direct-Reflection of Imitation of the Kuffār (Disbelievers/Non-Muslims) via al-`Asabiyyah. Now, let’s look at what al-`Asabiyyah is/means: it means to discriminate for/against soneone based upon Things which they’ve little to no Control over (Ethnicity, Skin-Complexion, Birthplace, National-Identity, Birth-Gender, Birth-Disability/Circumstantial Disability, Disease, etc.).(Lisān-ul-`Arab: Lexicon of the Arabic-Language, ibn-Manzhūr) Also, as per 1-Nite Stand Culture: the Muslim-World is notorious for Zinā/THOTery-Culture. In fact, Muslim-Countries/ the Arab-World is the Only-Place that I’ve ever been to in my Life where I was personally approached by Male&Female-Prostitutes. Allah states clearly, “And don’t let your hatred, against any People, prevent you from behaiving justly.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.5, V.8)

Said Rageah, Persons like him, etc.: they hate Persons other than themselves so much, that they’re willing to attempt to use al-Islām to justify their `Asabiyyah. However, there’s aboslutely 0 Islāmic-Justification to be Xenophobic. This Xenophobic-Rhetoric of Said Rageah is exactly how/why Muhammad stated, “Whomever boast of their Heritage, as per how it was done via al-Jāhiliyyah, then let them bite-off the Penis of their Father & don’t sugar-coat it.”.(an-Nasā’ī, Ahmad)

So, in Conclusion, to Said Rageah, as per your Xenophobic-Statements against Afro-Americans: go suck a Dick.

Dissecting & Disproving the Kalām/Rhetoric of al-Qur’āniyyah/Qur’ānism

Standard

Author’s-Note:

This, sadly, is becoming a more Popular-Phenomenon: Persons ponfiticating/claiming that al-Qur’ān/The Qur’ān is the Only-Text necessary for one to be a Muslim & to function properly Islāmically. This Pathological-Madhab/Religio-Posture, which has evolved into a Hizb/Religio-Sectarian Grouping, known as al-Qur’āniyyah/Qur’ānism. This Hizb deems to encourage Muslims to abandon the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition, not only as per following it. But, this goes much deeper down the Rabbit-Hole…their Religio-Posture more sinisterly pontificates/claims that the Sunnah itself isn’t even at-Tanzīl/Revelation, just as The Qur’ān is. Now, for Obvious-Reasons, this Type/Kind of Religio-Posture is not only Theologically-Problematic, but equally Theologically-Dangerous.

The Purpose of this Article, actually, is to breakdown what the Qur’ānī/Qur’ānist-Arguments are & how to textually/intelligently dispute those exact Same-Arguments:

1. an-Naskh-ul-Qur’ān/Revelatory-Abrogation of The Qur’ān-

This is an Argument which is common amongst Qur’ānist, suggesting that The Qur’ān & the Sunnah don’t intersect, define, refine, correct one another, etc. Particularly as per the Naskh of The Qur’ān via the Sunnah: this is something which Qur’ānists completely reject. However, there’s Revelatory/Textual-Evidence that both The Qur’ān & the Sunnah affect one another via an-Naskh. The Naskh of The Qur’ān is manifested via 3-Categories:

a. Complete-Removal of Verses from The Qur’ān textually & them being replaced textually with Other-Verses, regardless to whether they were Makkan-Verses or Madinan-Verses.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.2, V.106; Chpt.87, V.6&7; at-Tabarī; as-Suyūtī)

b. Makkan-Verses from The Qur’ān being replaced by Madinan-Verses from The Qur’ān as per at-Tashrī` (Legislation): al-Ahkām (Judgments/Rulings).(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.13, V.39; Chpt.17, V.86; at-Tabarī; as-Suyūtī)

c. Verses from The Qur’ān being replaced by the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition, as per at-Tashrī`/al-Ahkām (Legislation/Ru: Wife-Beating, al-Mut`ah/Temporary-Marriage, etc.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.4, V.24&34; Mālik; Abū-Dāwud; at-Tabarī; as-Suyūtī)

2. Mistrust/Distrust of Masānid (Hadīth/Narration-Collections)

This is literally one of the most commonly used Qur’ānī-Arguments. They pontificate/claim that since the Masānid were compiled by Human-Beings then, by definition, it’s to be Matrūk/Religio-Rejected.

As per the Qur’ānist (those whom claim to only adhere to The Qur’ān), referring to the Hadīth/Narration by Abī-Sa`īd al-Khudhrī (May Allah be pleased with him), concerning the Command of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) to document/record only The Qur’ān & not the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition (al-Bukhārī)…there’s 5-Things one must/should introspect upon.

They are the following:

a. How do they even know whether or not this is: Authentic, Reliable, Weak, Fabricated, etc.?!!!

b. The Fact that this Narration has been authenticated (as being Sahīh/Authentic) thus proves that the Religio-Postures of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) are just as much at-Tanzīl/Revelation as The Qur’ān itself.

c. The Fact that they’re literally relying upon a Hadīth/Record of the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition, to attempt to disprove the Validity of the Hadīth/Kitābah (Documentation) of the Sunnah, thus proves that the Sunnah is Mahlūl/Mafrūdh (Islāmically-Allowed/Mandated) to be recorded.

d. Had this Hadīth not/never been recorded, realistically we would’ve never even known that Muhammad had even stated this.

e. How do you know whether or not this Hadīth/Documentation of the Sunnah wasn’t made Mansūkh (Abrogated/Canceled) via Other-Nuzūl (Revelatory-Texts)?!!!

3. The Classic “Hadīth vs. Bible/Hadīth-Bible Comparison” Argument-

There’s a Pathological Pseudo-Narrative, pontificated by both Muslims & Non-Muslims alike, that Hadīth-Collections are exactly like The Bible, as per “mixing Truth with Falsehood”. The very 1st-Time that I was ever confronted with this Argument: I was 17-Years old at the Time. Fake-Wokers (those upon that Fake-Wokeness Rhetoric) actually, literally, spew this Rhetoric all of the Time. Yet, don’t be worried…here’s some Useful-Tools to help combat those Kinds/Types of Arguments:

a. Both the Qur’ān & the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition are at-Tanzīl/Revelation.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.53, V.3&4) This Revelatory-Text, alone, proves that anything which Muhammad (Peace be upon him) stated, did, etc. regarding al-Islām is automatically at-Tanzīl, whether it’s within The Qur’ān or not.

b. The Bible isn’t/has never been at-Tanzīl, but rather Distorted-Remnants/Versions of at-Tanzīl. Also, the Bible pontificates/promotes ash-Shirk/Association & al-Kufr/Disbelief.(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr)

c. The Qur’ān, by Virtue of how Allah personally describes it, within itself, is a Hadīth. Allah, in fact, literally refers to The Qur’ān within itself, Word4Word, as “al-Hadīth/Hadīth”.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.18, V.1-6)

d. Literally: the Same-Persons, via as-Salaf (as-Sahābah/the Companions [May Allah be pleased with them altogether] & Generations-1&2 of at-Tābi`īn/the Followers), whom’re Humanly-Responsible for documenting The Qur’ān also in turn documented the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition as well.

e. The same Mustalah/Authentication-Process which the Sunnah underwent, The Qur’ān underwent as well. And, this is a Non-Debatable Religio-Historical Fact. Also, the Mustalah of The Qur’ān was literally that much easier than the Mustalah of the Sunnah: in fact every/all Authentic-Hadīth (Narration/Documentation) concerning The Qur’ān is Scholastically-Classified as Sahīh-Mutawātir/Undoubtedly-Authentic.

f. By Virtue of their Religio-Posture, they clearly don’t even know or care to know what the Term “Hadīth” actually means. The Word/Term “Hadīth” means: Story/Tale, Relation, Narrative/Narration, Document/Documentation, Record/Recording, etc.(Lisān-ul-`Arab: Lexicon of the Arabic-Language, ibn-Manzhūr)

I hope that this Info. was helpful to any/all Persons whom’re serious about the Reality of al-Qur’āniyyah.

Standard

Author’s-Note:

This Article is deemed to expose the Reality of the Non-Islāmic Nature of Abuse, via any & all Manifestations/Forms. The Focus of this Article, however, is actually Domestic-Abuse & how/why Muslims particularly, whom still either pretend that it doesn’t exists amongst us, or whom still attempt to justify it.

The Islāmic-Justification to rebel against Toxic-Leadership

Standard

Author’s-Note:

Historically (even prior to the Revelation of The Qur’ān), and especially contemporaneously (via the Collapse of the Ottoman-Empire), there’s frequently been this Kalām/Rhetoric amongst Elitists to retain/preserve their Powers of Populaces. With this being said, Muslim-Elites are clearly no different from our Non-Muslim Counterparts. However, unlike Non-Muslins: Muslims Past&Present, Pre-Qur’ān & Post-Qur’ān, etc. have continuously attempted to misuse at-Tanzīl/Revelation, Muslim Religio-Scholars, Islāmic-Concepts (like Waliyy-ul-Amr/Loyalty of Authority pertaining to Muslim-Leaders/Rulers) & so on to attempt to justify their Oppression against Others. And, it’s done in such Ways exclusively to preserve their Self-Serving Authoritarian-Control. Fortunately, for us though, in spite of their Oppressive-Tactics to attempt to convince Populaces that regardless of their Oporession that they’re entitled to receiving Respect, Loyalty, Obedience, etc. there exists Revelation to debunk any, every, all Things which Oppressive-Leaders/Rulers stand for. The following applies to any/all Manifestations, Forms, Degrees of al-Imārah (Leadership/Rulership) by the way.

20190923_021242

یَـٰۤأَیُّهَا ٱلَّذِینَ ءَامَنُوۤا۟ أَطِیعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِیعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُو۟لِی  ٱلۡأَمۡرِ مِنكُمۡۖ فَإِن تَنَـٰزَعۡتُمۡ فِی شَیۡءࣲ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَٱلرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمۡ تُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلۡیَوۡمِ ٱلۡـَٔاخِرِۚ ذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ خَیۡرࣱ وَأَحۡسَنُ تَأۡوِیلًا

“Those whom believe pay attention: obey Allah & the Messenger, as well as the Possessors of Authority amongst you. If you differ, concerning anything, then refer to Allah & the Messenger, providing you believe in Allah & the Last-Day. That’s best & a most excellent Conclusion.”(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.4, V.59)

وَٱقۡتُلُوهُمۡ حَیۡثُ ثَقِفۡتُمُوهُمۡ وَأَخۡرِجُوهُم مِّنۡ حَیۡثُ أَخۡرَجُوكُمۡۚ وَٱلۡفِتۡنَةُ أَشَدُّ مِنَ ٱلۡقَتۡلِۚ وَلَا تُقَـٰتِلُوهُمۡ عِندَ ٱلۡمَسۡجِدِ ٱلۡحَرَامِ حَتَّىٰ یُقَـٰتِلُوكُمۡ فِیهِۖ فَإِن قَـٰتَلُوكُمۡ فَٱقۡتُلُوهُمۡۗ كَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ جَزَاۤءُ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِینَ

“And combat them wherever you find them & expel them wherever they expelled you. And, Drama/Oppression is worse than Killing/Slaughter. But, don’t combat them within the Sacred-Mosque, unless you’re combated within it. So, combat them, if they combat you. Such is the Retribution of the Disbelievers.”(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.2, V.191)

`Abdullah ibn-`Uthmān ibn-`Āmir/Abū-Bakr as-Siddīq (May Allah be pleased with him), after the Death of Muhammad (Peace be upon him), assumed al-Imārah over the Muslims. Upon that, he publicly stated, “I have been granted Authority over you, in spite of not being the Best from amongst you. If I do well, then help me. But, if I error, then correct me. Empathy for Truth is Loyalty, whereas Apathy for Truth is Treachery. The Weak amongst you shall be Strong to/with me, unless/until I have secured/restored his Rights, if Allah wills. And the Strong amongst you shall be Weak to/with me, unless/until I’ve seized from him the Rights of Others, if Allah wills. So, obey me, so long as I obey Allah & His Messenger. But, if I disobey Allah & His Messenger, then you owe me no Obedience. Arise for your prayer: may Allah mercify you.”.(az-Zuhrī, ibn-Ishāq, ibn-Hishām, at-Tabarī, at-Tabarānī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Sa`d, al-Wāqidī, ibn-Kathīr, Martin Lings)

Now, please, keep in Mind that Abū-Bakr is Unanimously-Recognized amongst the Scholars of the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition as being the Best/Number-1 Companion of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) & the Most-Senior amongst all of his Companion-Peers (May Allah be pleased with them altogether)…this is what he stated concerning about his own Self, his own Imārah over the Muslims. So, upon that, whom’re we to posture as though we’re somehow Entitled to Imārah and/or Entitled to oppress via our Imārah without Consequence?!!! So, just know: it honestly really doesn’t matter which Muslim-Leader/Ruler, Muslim Religio-Scholar, egc. attempts to make you think/feel that you must obey them regardless of how they are. This “Be Patient with/Obedient to the Muslim-Leader/Ruler” Rhetoric only emboldens Oppressors to remain Oppressors. Basically, this Rhetoric spewed by Oppressors is like imposing Stockholm-Syndrome upon People: when the Oppressed begin to not only tolerate/accept Oppression, but also defend the Oppressor. And, that’s exactly what’s been happening within the Muslim-World for a Long-Time. Ironically, these Same-Oppressors command their Muslim Religio-Scholars to spew this Stockholm-Syndrome to their Populaces/Citizenry, merely because they don’t want what their Geo-Political Ancestors did to occur to them: pertaining to al-Kharajiyyah/Rebellion against the Ottoman-Empire for example, when the Muslim-Arabs assisted Non-Muslim Powers to fight against Fellow-Muslims, in the Name of al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia.(See: https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2013/12/06/hujjahagainstsaudiarabia)

As per my Conclusion: don’t ever let anyone tell you to not, that you shouldn’t/can’t, that it’s Sinful to rebel against Oppression.

The Usage of the Homosexual-Agenda against Muslims

Standard

20190712_013316

Author’s-Note:

This is based on a Pro-Homo Article, attempting to pontificate/promote a Pseudo-Narrative, claiming that al-Lawāt/Homosexuality is from al-Islām. This Pseudo-Narrative is the Argument used within this Article:

The secret gay history of Islam

There’s Several-Things incredibly wrong with this Article…yes, I’m going to highlight all this Agenda.

The Entire-Title & the Entire-Article is purposely Religio-Historically Untrue/Dishonest:

1. al-Islām predates the World’s 1st-Homosexuals: the People of Lot. Moreover, there were 4-Reasons as per how/why the People of Lot were Destroyed:

a. They committed ash-Shirk/Association (Ascription of Sifāt [Characteristics/Qualities] attributed to Allah not predicated upon at-Tanzīl/Revelation [The Qur’ān & the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition]) via Idol-Worship.

b. They were the 1st-Humans to initiate al-Lawāt. Moreover, via at-Tanzīl/Revelation: it’s clearly detailed that the Men amongst the People of Lot chose to have Consenual Homesxual-Intercourse with one another. And, Allah states Directly that the Men from the People of Lot chose/prefered Men instead of Women. So, for those whom claim that Homosexuality only existed amongst the People of Lot via Rape: those Persons are clearly Pathologically-Ignorant, as per Revelatory/Islāmic-Texts. Them & People like them are methodically & deliberately Textually-Untrue/Dishonest.(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr)

c. They were the 1st-Humans to commit Gang-Rape.

d. They were the 1st-Humans to commit Highway-Robbery/Human-Trafficking.

(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr)

2. There’s no such Thing as “Gay History of Islam”. There’s a History of Muslims (relative to the Revelation of The Qur’ān) whom were/are in fact Homosexuals.

3. This is literally nothing more than a Pathetic-Attempt to justify al-Fusūq/Sinning, as Muhammad (Peace be upon him) stated, “Verily, the Action of the People of Lot is what I fear for my Nation the most.”.
(al-Kabā’ir/The Major-Sins, adh-Dhahabī)

4. There’s detailed Hudūd/Islāmic-Punishments for al-Lawāt:

a. Male-Male/Anal Sex is automatically Punishable via Death-Penalty, unless it’s Proven that the Dominated-Person was/is a Victim of Rape, Child-Molestation, etc.

b. Female-Female Sex is Punishable based upon Marital/Non-Marital Status, unless it’s Proven that the Dominated-Person was/is a Victim of Rape, Chil-Molestation, etc.

(al-Kabā’ir)

This is simply at-Tahrīf: (Religio-Textual/Religio-Historical) Distirtion, to attempt to normalize al-Lawāt to Muslims, and sadly: Muslims whom’re Religio-Ignorant, Ego/Desire-Driven, etc. fold under the Pro-Homo Pressure. This is one of the Prophecies of Muhammad (Peace be upon him), when he warned us that his Nation is secure/safe from the Wrath of Allah, unless/until they become al-Mujāhirīn/Shameless. When the Companions present (May Allah be pleased with them) asked him whom al-Mujāhirūn are, he stated that they are those whom sin without: Reservation, Consequence, etc.(al-Bukhārī) Clearly, this is Article is 💯% Agenda-Driven, to pontificate, proliferate Sinning. The Fact that there’s such a Desperate-Agenda to seduce Muslims, to turn them out towards al-Lawāt, thus proves how much Insecurity the Proponents of al-Lawāt are actually operating with/from.

Articles, Writings, Postures, etc. such as this one confirms that this is why Muslims must (at All-Times) be Religio-Knowledgeable, as well as Socio-Politically-Knowledgeable, pertaining to what al-Islām allows, prohibits, etc. & how the Enemies of al-Islām work Nite&Day to attempt to lead Muslums astray.

Saudi Arabia’s Religio-Hypocritial Love-Hate Relationship with Music.

Standard

img_20190710_171953_322It’s Patheitically-Ironic, that in a Nation-State whose Religious-Elite are so Hardline against Musical-Entertainment: Saudi Arabia not only has Music-Concerts within KSA, but also is Home to some of the Most-Popular Music-Artists in the History of the Muslim-World as well as the Arab-World, like Muhammad `Abduh for example (not to be confused with the Founder of Salafism in the 1860’s, C.E. of the Same-Name). However, within the Same-Breath: there’s Fatāwā/Religio-Rulings after Fatāwā as per the Islāmic-Prohibitions regarding Musical-Instruments, Musical-Lyrics, Musical-Genres, etc. & ironically the same Musical-Artists within the Realm of the Saudi-Kingdom pontificate/promote the exact Same-Kinds/Types of Music which is condemned via the Saudi Religio-Elite.

Some very important Facts to note, by the Way:

a. Music, via its Entirety, inherently isn’t Mahrūm/Islāmically-Prohibited.

b. The Term which are used via at-Tanzīl/Revelation (The Qur’ān & the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition) to describe the Prohibited-Elements of Music: al-Ma`āzif itself is too often mistranslated as “Music-Holistically/Musical-Instruments Holistically”.

c. The Correct-Meaning/Translation of al-Maāzif is “Instruments of Evil” & more specifically, via at-Tanzīl is “Woodwind/Stringed-Instruments”.(al-Bukhārī, Abū-Dāwud)

d. There’s a Known-Instrument know as ad-Daff: an Arab-Drum…ironically, ad-Daff is Mahlūl/Islāmically-Allowed & by definition it’s literally a Musical-Instrument. So, obviously, Islāmically: there’s absolutely no Way that all Music/Musical-Elements are Mahrūm.(al-Bukhārī, Muslim, Lisān-ul-Arab: Lexicon of the Arabic-Language, ibn-Manzhūr)

Saudi Arabia, just on the Issue of Music itself, is 💯%-Guilty of spreading Cultural-Colonization. Basically, their Premise is to indoctrinate the Entire Muslim-World to conform to their own valid Individual-Urfiyyah. And, of course: the Best-Way to pull this off is to disguise Arabism with the Cloak of al-Islām. In spite of the Fact that al-Islām is a Dīn/Religio-Spiritual Lifestyle & not an Urf/Culture, KSA readily attempts to lay Claim to al-Islām, as though it’s their Personal-Property, which clearly it’s not. And, because of the Fact that Salafism particularly, unique to any/all other Ahzāb (Sectarian/Deviant-Groups) amongst Muslims, the Religio-Puritanical Postures which is pontificated/promoted via Salafism pushes a very Ugly-Precedent/Agenda that if it comes out of/from Saudi, that if Saudi allows it, if Saudi co-signs/supports it, then it’s All-Good.

This includes:

a. Squandering the Wealth of the Muslims (Petroleum which is the Only-Reason as to how/why KSA & the other Gulf-States even matter to the World at all).

b. Collusion with Non-Muslim/Western Powers against Muslim-Countries/Governments, Muslim-Leaders, etc. (in spite of their Hypocritical-Kalām/Rhetoric concerning “Patience&Obedience in regards to Muslim-Leadership/Rulership).(Nawāqidh-ul-Islām/Nullifications of al-Islām, Muhammad ibn-`Abd-il-Wahhāb)

The Psychology Of Islāmophobia

Standard

img_20190709_123113_022

Ever since the Time of Noah (Peace be upon him), being commanded by Allah to confront the 1st Non-Muslims in Human-History: Humanity has always been corrupted via Islāmophobia.(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr) However, as per the Modern-World: more than at any Time-Period within Human-History, we’re 💯% enthralled Knee-Deep in the Indulgence of Islāmophobia (Hatred towards/against anything/everything related to the Dīn/Lifestyle of al-Islām). And, because of this, Muslims have been globally pinned against the Wall. Pathological-Fears, which are either Self-Imposed or Socio-Politically Imposed, have tantamount Negative-Effects pertaining to what Muslims think/how we feel about ourselves & Others. Islāmophobia has established Intrapersonal&Interpersonal Inferiority-Complexes within the Minds&Hearts of Muslims worldwide.

at-Tajnīn (Jinn-Influence/Possession) vs. Mental-Illness By Gareth Bryant

Author’s-Note:

The Following-Article is based upon Personal-Research: my Role as a Chaplain/Counselor lead me to author this Research, as per my Professional-Expertise via Chaplaincy. I’ve submitted my Research, for review, to the Dept. of Psychiatry, Michigan State University. Michigan State University not only approved my Research, but also invited me to attend the annual Global Muslim Mental Health Conference, hosted by Clare College/Cambridge University, United Kingdom, where I in turn was also invited to orate/defend my Research.

Being Black In Britain: The Casualties Of The Windrush-Policy & Brexit

Standard

20190401_001010

My Travels via the United Kingdom, the 1st-Time I’ve traveled externally of the United States since 2006, C.E. & my 1st-Traveling within Europe, has given me a Significant Contrasting-Lens to view how Things like: Islāmophobia, Xenophobia, etc. really play-out throughout the UK. Being Visibly-Muslim & African-Descent in the UK is still, I’m sure, is viewed as an Exotically-Foreign Commodity…being African-Descent not so much. However, Opposition to both al-Islām & Blackness may very well be of Equal-Par. Even as I explored the UK for myself, I has met with a Tense-Sense of: Xenophobia, Otherism…I saw it within People’s Faces, I felt it from their Vibes…this was just about anywhere/everywhere that I went-It was extremely: Subtle, Covert, Indirect, Clandestine, etc. But, I knew it when it came my Way, as it approached me. The British, from what I’ve observed possess very Sly-Ways of throwing Shade in the most Sophisticated-Ways, which kind of explains why there’s so much Sarcasm wirhin British-Humor/Comedy.

The UK particularly, not only fully expresses Disdain towards the Other, but even amongst their own Ethno-Continental/European Counterparts, there’s this seemingly British-Style Posture of Superiority, Exclusivity, Anti-Inclusion/Acceptance, etc. One of the Things which proved this to me is the Fact that, to my Surprise there were lots of Interethnic/Interracial Couples: Afro-Euro Couples most commonly, within London particularly/especially. However, I constantly observed Euro-Brits stare, glance, scowl, at these Non-Euro Brit Couples and/or Non-Euro Couples period, as if they were plagued with Jungle-Fever. I mean, I literally saw this every Day I was in the UK. One of the most prominent Displays of Exclusivity I observed was when I went to Stonehenge. Stonehenge was/is actually much more significant than I ever really took it for, in Terms of its Purpose: I learned that the Druids who built Stonehenge used that Stone-Complex to commemorate the Celebration of People transitioning from Life to Death: kind of like a Afterlife-Gateway/Portal if you will. So, as one of the Tour-Guides was telling me Extensive-Details regarding Stonehenge, I had asked whether there were older Stone-Complexes than Stonhenge…her resoonse, “Yes, there’s Stone-Structures all over the World.”; then, however, instead of actually mentioning Stone-Structures across the Planet, they only mentioned the Stone-Structures within the UK. By itself, the Statenent is apparently quite innocent. But, as per Context, it’s extremely telling as to how they view themselves as the Center of the Universe & this is also just as evident pertaining to how they’ve historically conquered & governed Others.

Even as per the Brexit-Fiasco unfolded, pertaining to the UK being politically turmoiled as to whether remain with or depart from the European Union, the Discourse concerning Anti-Blackness is very much apparent, in spite of the Macrocosmic-Narrative surrounding Immigration into the UK, which was the Genesis of the Friction between the UK & EU initially. Anti-Blackness, in lieu of Brexit, comes into play directly, resulting from Mass-Deportation of African-Peoples whom were allowed to immigrate to the UK via Post WWII, when most of the West-Indies, the Caribbean, as welk as Places within Africa, etc. were British-Colonies & even today are still (politically/economically) shackled to the UK via the British-Commonwealth. Many/most of these African-Peoples being forcibly deported are People who’ve made their Families, Careers, Lives within the UK: so much so that they basically have no Life external of the UK. As a Result, these Deportees are literally forced to start-over in Nations which they’ve probably haven’t been to in Decades.

Now, let’s explore how/why the UK possesses this Entitled-Posture to treat those whom were once welcomed to contribute to British-Society, yet are now being viewed as “the Other”. Well…let’s take a Look at the Landscape&Scope of Dominance from the Lens of the Victor/Colonizer: the UK, much like it’s other European-Colonial Counterparts, obviously, had and/or has 0-Problem with conquering, exploiting Non-European Peoples around the World, yet ironically are so bothered if/when the Descendants of these Conquered-Peoples make their Way to their Mainlands/Motherlands…ahhhhh, now all of a sudden these People are “2-Close 4 Comfort”?!!!

Whenever you’re the Dominator of any Human-Demographic, particularly/especially if/when you’ve oppressed them, then of course, it makes Sense as to how/why you’d deliberately, purposely/purposefully, methodically, set Social-Political Mechanisms in place to either keep them “in their Place” or to use/drain them of their Potential actualized within your Society & then expel them once donewith them. This is seemingly, most defintely, the Case as per the Climate&Tension surrounding Brexit which is merely yet another Excuse for the UK to put the Lean upon anyone/everyone deemed an “Outsider”, which is simply a Political-Euphemism for Non-Christian/Non-European.

African-Peoples, regadless to where they hail from under the Shadow of the British-Empire (and/or what’s left of it), are simply deemed threatening: not in Terms of Military-Opposition, but more/most importantly, in Terms of them being Historically-Perpetual Reminders of the Fact that the UK as a Global-Power, as well as an Economic-Force, had profitted mightily from Colonization, the Trans-Atlantic Slave-Trade, etc. The Descendants of those whom were oppressed are in many Respects being just as victimized via the Same-Oppressors. So, of course, the greatest Global-Immigration Crisis in Human-History to date-Since the Children of Europe’s Former Colonial-Regions are suffering as per the Proliferation of: Economic-Destitution, Political-Chaos, Religio-Cultural Impossition on Part of European-Powers are now wanting to seek Assylum within Europe’s Borders, then obviously Europe must now “save itself” from being overrun by the Peoples whom have historically/generationally had their Backs broken via the Service of their Colonial-Masters.

And, also, since many of these African-Peoples whom reside within the UK as (Downtrodden, Uneducated, Unskilled) Persons yearing to escape the Poverty & Dead-Ends of their Homelands which were exploited by the UK & whose Hardtimes are mainly the Direct-Result of Colonial-Oppresdion: when they’re too Uneducated to acquire Careers which offer Higher-Standards of Living, when thay’re not Affluent enough to afford Solid-Education leading to Promising Economic-Opportunities, when they can’t afford Private-Properties & must settle for dwelling within the British-Slums which’re Breading-Grounds of/for Criminality, then of course you’re goung to have significant Percentages of these Demographics whom’re: Roadmen/Trapstars, Journeymen/Hustlers, Knifemen/Shooters, Gangsters, etc. & of course Places where these Demographics are mostly concentrated like: London, Glascow, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, York, etc. are going to be Criminalized Hornets-Nests. And, of course, as per the Pseudo-Narrative that the Vast-Majority of British-Crimes are committed by African-Peoples will be readily accepted via the Anglo-Saxon, Welsh, Scottish, Celtic Masses of the UK, allowing themselves to deflect from the Reality that Criminality is never exclusively a Black-Man’s Vice, but rather a Human-Vice.

Instead of actually addressing the Socio-Economic Disenfranchisenent of the UK and/or its Socio-Political Marginalization, Parliament via the Xenophobic Right-Wing Factions of Governence&Government would much rather just point Fingers & shift Blame in a Dishonest-Way. We can/should all agree that there’s 0-Justification to pontificate/proluferate Criminality. At the exact Same-Time though, manipulatiing alarming Crime-Rates also isn’t any Justification to criminalize Human-Demographics & deliberately work towards forcibly expeling/exiling them from the Hone&Life which they’ve made for themselves…what’s being established via this Brexit-Phenomenon is simply an Excuse for the UK, as well as any/all other European-Nations like it to suck People dry of their Personal/Human-Resources for the Good of their Nations, only to repay them with Deportation/Exile, to the exact Same-Places which they once were where these European-Nations have decimated & exploited damn near to Death.
