#SurvivingHypocrisy: The Anatomy of the RKelly Scandal-Saga

Standard

img_20190107_203928

 

Allah tells us:

1. “And don’t approach az-Zinā/THOTery: verily, it’s Shameful-Character/Behavior & an Evil-Path.”.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.17, V.32)

2. “And don’t let your Hatred, against any People, prevent you from behaving justly.”.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.5, V.8)

Muhammad (Peace be upon him) has told us:

1. “Whomever amongst any of you has Children they should/must:

a. Give them a Positive-Name.

b. Teach them Literacy.

c. Get them Married.

But/and whomever fails to get their Children Married, whatever THOTery they do, their Sins become the Sins of the Father.”.(al-Bayhaqī)

2. “The Pen (of al-Hisāb/Accountability) is lifted from 3-Persons:

a. A Child (Non/Pre-Pubescent-Person).*

b. A Mentally-Challenged/Ill Person.

c. A Sleeping-Person.

(*Purposely highlighting the Above-Category from this Particular-Narration, this is where our Discussion is to begin.)”.(Abū-Dāwud, ibn-Mājah)

As per the Narration concerning al-Balāghah/Puberty, we learn the following:

a. There’s no Hisāb for any Human-Being unless/until they live long enough to experience al-Balāghah.

b. The Definitions of both Childhood & Manhood/Womanhood via the Islāmic-Lens is clearly defined.

c. The Definition of Child-Molestation is clearly defined.

As per a: A Non/Pre-Pubescent Person isn’t Islāmically-Responsible for any Positive/Negative-Actions which they do, unless/until they’ve reached al-Balāghah.

As per b: al-Balāghah is 💯% predicated upon Basic-Biology…once a Human experiences al-Balāghah they’re no longer a “Child”: depending upon their Birth-Gender, they’re now either a Biological-Man or a Biological-Woman.*

(*Now, there’s some/many whom will attempt to mention Psycho-Emotional Maturity as a Factor…granted. And, Psycho-Emotional Maturity, of course, is essential. However, Puberty & Psycho-Emotional Maturity are clearly Mutually-Exclusive, and Psycho-Emotional Maturity is predicated upon Personal-Constitution, Familial-Upbringing, Societal-Conditioning, etc.)

As per c: the Islāmic-Definition of Child-Molestation is to have any Sexual-Contact with a Fellow-Human prior to them experiencing al-Balāghah. And, this is exactly how/why we know that the Marriage between Muhammad ibn-`Abdillah: the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) & `Ā’ishah bint-`Abdillah/Abū-Bakr as-Siddīq (May Allah be pleased with her) was never consummated until after it was confirmed that she had reached al-Balāghah.(al-Bukhārī, Muslim)

Now, on to the Issue of Sexual-Abuse Allegations surrounding the Mythos of Robert “RKelly” Kelly via the #SurvivingRKelly Phenomenon…here’s what my Assessment is:

a. Is RKelly a Sexual-Predator/Sexual-Abuser…Yes. In fact, in all Truthfulness/Honesty many of us (Countless-People) are self-manifestations of Sexual-Predatism/Sexual-Abuse. For example: if/when we’re gawking on the Social-Media Pages of Sexualized-Persons, finding enjoyment in browsing Porn-Sites, Sexualized Mainstream-Entertainment (TV-Shows, Films, Cartoons, Music, etc.), allowing our Daughters to dress-up as Nicki Minaj & Cardi B for Halloween, having a Pre-Pubescent Male dress as a Transformer/Transgender at a Homosexual-Male Bar/Club & dancing in front of Grown-Ass/Horny-Ass Homosexual-Men: all of this is equally Sexually-Predatorial/Sexually-Abusive.

b. Is RKelly a Child-Molester…No. I say this, definitively, because none of the Women confirmed to have had Sexual-Encounters with RKelly were Non/Pre-Pubescent, thereby confirming that they weren’t Islāmically-Children. This is, as is expected, going to rub People the Wrong-Way. But…as if I actually care: my Maslahah/Purpose is to make the Uncomfortable Comfortable.

Let’s observe some Facts:

a. Most Human-Societies have had/still have an established `Urfiyyah/Cultural-Narrative allowing People to marry as long as it’s understood that there’s no Sexual-Engagement with Non/Pre-Pubescent Persons. Now  there’s obviously Exceptions to this Standard, notably via Greco-Roman Civilization which specifically co-signed People having Sexual-Contact with Non/Pre-Pubescent Persons.

b. Within the United States alone: prior to the 20th-Century, C.E. most American-Women were Married prior to Age-18.

c. Within the United States right now, as we speak: there’s US-States which allow People to marry under Age-18, under Age-17, under Age-16, etc. & in some US-States there’s no Age-Limits for Marriage at all.

d. Within the United States right now, as we speak: Thousands of Americans under Age-18 get Married annually.

e. Pornography is hands-down the Biggest-Pontificate/Promoter of Sexual-Predatism/Sexual-Abuse. I say this exclusively because it’s Non-Debatable Truth/Honesty…Pornography is literally a Part of every Element/Facet of our Modern-Societies.

Even when it comes to Social-Media via Hashtagging:

  1. #FoodPorn
  2. #WordPorn
  3. #SportsPorn
  4. #StylePorn
  5. #TravelPorn

Pornography has Distinct-Genres which (directly, overtly, blatantly) pontificate/promote the following:

a. Bestiality

b. Child-Molestation

c. Incest

d. Rape/Rape-Culture

e. Kidnapping/Human-Trafficking

f. School/Teacher-Student Sex

g. Geriatric/Senior-Citizen Sexual-Abuse

h. Homosexuality

i. Adultery

j. Fornication

k. Masturbation

You should well get my Point, by now…my Point is that there’s Millions of RKelly’s in our World. And, many/most of them have been almost exclusively influenced/conditioned to be just like RKelly via Pornography which pontificates/promotes Sexual-Abuse. Yet, ironically, sadly, Pornography is tolerated, accepted as a Legitimate-Element within Secular-Society. Meanwhile, it’s the Premier-Conduit as per grooming, influencing, indoctrinating the Minds&Hearts of Countless-People the World over, and thus turning them into Psycho-Emotional RKelly’s. Some of the most Notable-Figures in the World, whose Influence has spanned Multiple-Generations, and crossing-over Various-Spheres such as Politics, Pop-Culture, Art, Entertainment, Comedy, etc have had both their Hands deeply entrenched into Sexual-Predatism/Sexual-Abuse.

They are the following Individuals:

a. Let’s look at one of, if not the most Popular-Figure in the History of Pornography: Hugh Hefner…the RKelly before RKelly…the Stan Lee, George Lucas, Michael Jordan of Pornography. At the Time of Hugh Hefner’s Death, his Last-Wife: Crystal Harris was in the same Age-Range as one of his 20-Something Year-Old Children, while he was in his 80’s.

b. Let’s revisit the Life&Times of one of the Most-Celebrated Presidents in US-History: John Fitzgerald Kennedy: JFK. He indulged in an Open Adulterous-Affair with Marilyn Monroe as a Sitting US-President, which imposed an Incredible-Embarrassment to his Wife: Jacqueline Bouvier.

c. Let’s travel back in Time to when William Jefferson Blythe, III/Bill Clinton committed Adultery with Monica Lewinsky in the White House, embarrassing completely his Wife Hillary Rodham. And was merely a Culmination of several Sexual-Scandals which spanned his entire Political-Career.

d. William/Bill “The Pill” Cosby: made Date-Rape a revamped National-Conversation, via the Date-Rape Drug Allegations which he indirectly admitted to in a Legal-Deposition, pertaining to 3-Decades of Sexual-Abuse.

e. Allan Stewart Konigsberg/Woody Allen: he initiated a Sordidly-Public Adulterous-Relationship with Soon-Yi Previn: an Adoptive-Daughter of his Domestic-Partner Mia Farrow, as well as Sexual-Abuse Allegations involving one of her other Adoptive-Children: Dylan Farrow.

f. Roman Polanski: Fled the United States in 1978, after pleading Guilty as per Statutory-Rape Allegations, pertaining to Samantha Gailey, whom was 13-Years Old at the Time of these Charges…an Official US-Fugitive ever since. He has not been apprehended by US-Authorities, nor has he been extradited back to the US.

In conclusion: as per Sexual-Abuse, there’s more than enough blame to go around, and all of us, whether we’re willing to admit it or not, we’re either directly or indirectly Active-Participants in the pontification, promotion of Sexual-Abuse. As I always tell People, “It’s easy to judge People, when our Sins aren’t Public-Knowledge”…”You either judge everyone or judge no one.”

Some Brief Islamic-History (the origin of Sodomy & Homosexuality):

Standard

Author’s note:
The following post, which is based upon two main sources: Qasasu-ul-Anbiya’ (Stories of the Prophets), by Abil-Fida’ Isma`il ibn-Kathir ad-Dimashqi & al-Kaba’ir (The Major-Sins), by Muhammad ibn-`Uthman adh-Dhahabi, contains very mature & detailed subject matter about the People of Lot & the origins of Homosexuality. So, if anyone is not comfortable with this particular subject matter, I advise you to stop reading right now; otherwise, sit back, relax, and enjoy this article.

The People of Lot:

These people lived during the time of the Prophet Lot (Peace be upon him). They were a people who dwelled in an area that is now known as the Dead Sea, in modern-day Palestine/Israel, also bordering modern-day Syria & Jordan. They were a people whom were merchants & traders. They were a people of 7 satellite cities, the chief cities were known as Sodom (where the term Sodomy itself actually derives from, basically meaning the action of the people of Sodom) & Gomorrah.

They initiated three things (aside from the fact that they were already a rag-tag gang of idol-worshippers:

1. They are the first people to indulge in any acts of Sodomy/Anal-Sex and/or same-gender sexual-intercourse.

2. They are the first known people to initiate the practice of gang-raping.

3. They are the first people to initiate highway-robbery.

Oftentimes, what they would do is raid caravans, which came through or near their satellite-towns. They would rob them, gang-rape the men from among them, and keep them captive, in their towns. Now, when Allah had sent Lot to his people, to call them back to Allah, to stop worshipping idols & return back to worshipping Allah exclusively, via Tawhid (Islamic-Monotheism), Allah, knowing that Lot was able to succeed in his prophetic-mission on his own, decided to send Lot some assistance, via two Angels. These Angels came to the towns of the people of Lot in the forms of young, well-kept men. They had first encountered the daughters of Lot. They knew that these two (Angels) were complete strangers to the satellite towns of Sodom & Gomorrah. So, they had warned them to not initiate contact with these people, because of their wicked ways.

But, unbeknownst to them (the daughters of Lot), these two (Angels) were in fact sent to help protect Lot & his family, from the great punishment which was on the way, to destroy their people. The daughters, being wise, decided to take them directly to their fathers home, to make sure that they were not approached by the men of their people. However, the wife of Lot, who was not only a disbeliever in the revelation that was given to Lot, by Allah, she was also very empathetic to the desires of their people. And, when she had caught-wind of these two “young-men”, in the home of her husband, she had immediately informed as many people as she possibly could, that these “young-men” were at the home of her husband.

So, of course, these sexually-deviant clowns attempt to storm the house of Lot. Lot pleads with them just one last time, in the hopes that they are not victimized by the wrath of Allah-He tries any & every way that he can to try to call these people to Islam & warn them of the chastisement that’s right-around-the-corner. But, alas, they don’t listen, they are punished, by stones from the skies, which are ablaze. They rain down upon the towns of the people of Lot with such accuracy & rage striking down and hitting every single person in these towns.

Lot & his family, along with the few among his people, who had taken heed to his prophetic call, were escorted & protected by the two Angels, whom Allah had sent, and given asylum from the punishment of their people in their towns. However, the wife of Lot was not spared-She was so attached to the evil ways of these people, she decided to  once again disobey the command of (her prophetic-husband) Lot, to seek the asylum of Allah & go with the Angels, whom were sent to protect them-She didn’t listen; she stay behind & was destroy right along with them. Now, unfortunately, even though the People of Lot are dead, their legacy didn’t die with them.

What I will do now is explain in detail as to how this act of Sodomy has become so popular today:

1.Homosexuality-
The popularity of Homosexuality (via media/entertainment, celebrities, politicians/political-lobbies, etc.) has made it “Okay to be ‘Gay’”. The Homosexual-Community has managed to push their agenda, to gain religious, social tolerance & acceptance, and have amassed great socio-economic & socio-political influence within both Hollywood & Washington. They also managed to manipulate the public into believing that Homosexuality is a “Human-Rights” & “Civil-Rights” issue, more importantly, they’ve been able to convince people that Homosexuality in and of itself is not a choice, rather, it’s an innate sexuality, which one is entitled to, even though, ironically, there has never been any such scientific-evidence (and there still isn’t any scientific-evidence), to prove that Homosexuality is biologically innate, natural, normal, or even genetic.

2. Greco-Roman culture-
No known civilization whose existence has been preserved in the annals of recorded Human-history, has celebrated Homosexuality/Sodomy like the architects of Western-Civilization, themselves: the Greeks & the Romans-From the ancient stories of the Greek/Roman Gods, to the stories of the Greek/Roman Heroes, to the origin of the Olympian-Games, to the origin of the Roman bath-houses, Homosexuality has been an intricate aspect of Greco-Roman daily-life-The pantheons, the literature & poetry, the art, even the origin of the Greek/Roman astrological calendar, all of these are avenues which have projected Homosexuality & has contributed to the fact that the Western-World has accepted the validation of Homosexaulity with open-arms.

3. Pornography-
The Ponogarphy industry is currently a nearly $100-Billion business-The Sex industry has promoted this act more than any one single personality, or group of people, ever. This is a world-wide phenomenon, powered by powerful world-wide sex companies, who profit immensely from the propagation of this act. It is a known fact, within the porn industry, that people (both men & women for that matter) who allow themselves to be anally penetrated are paid significantly more, per sex-scene, as opposed to those who do not allow themselves to be anally penetrated; also, those who perform anal-sex upon others are generally paid more, as opposed to those who do not perform anal-sex upon others. Since Anal-Sex has always been considered a religious and/or social taboo, and even offence, the image of this act being blatantly displayed, so carelessly & freely in a movie is bound to attract the attention of anyone, who is voided of the guidance of Islam, as well as just universal, common, respect & decency. These porn industry producers & marketers are very sly, crafty, and (for lack of a better term) intelligent-They know what attracts Human beings sexually, and they use any & all ways to manipulate their desires for profit, thus, the propagation of this act has made people in the porn industry billions of dollars, literally.
Now, what does all of this mean & what can we do about it?

What this means is that we have a serious problem on our hands, as Muslims, regarding this particular issue alone. Muhammad (Peace be upon him) had once said, “Verily, what I fear for my nation the most is the action of the People of Lot.”.(al-Kaba’ir) Sadly, this fear of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) has come to fruition, in ways that couldn’t have even been imaginable to hear, read, or personally witness.

In terms of what we can do about it, there’s only three things which can be done:

1. Realistically, the only pragmatic thing that we can do, as Muslims, is to look at ourselves in the mirror, recognize & sincerely evaluate any and/or all deviant sexual-desires which affect us, ask Allah for help & work really hard to stay away from these acts, and all things, persons, places which lead to these acts.

2. Be a good Muslim, a good role model for others, that you may be able to be used by Allah, to guide others to Islam, and also towards solid morality generally. Allah has entrusted us with the abilities to lead people away from darkness & into light. But, we have to make sure that we’re even worthy of such a responsibility first, by being examples that people deem worthy of taking seriously & following.

3. Understand the time in which we are living in: Don’t pretend that Homosexuality is not a dominant force within our society, or that Sodomy is just something that Non-Muslims, or Homosexuals do, take your heads out of the sand. Both Homosexuality & Sodomy, respectively, have been widepsread in the Muslim-World. However, you don’t hear a lot of persons, whom are Muslim personalities, popular in the Muslim-World or deemed as “Muslim-Scholars”, addressing these types of issues, as they are obligated to do so.
