Double Standards of a Kafir Mindset [Quote – 953]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


Kafirs are those who knowingly and willfully deny and reject God. The mindset from which such a total denial and rejection of God proceeds carries all kinds of concomitants and attachments with it. 

And all kinds of consequences too. Most of them unpleasant and terrible.

Such a mind, I mean Kafir Mindset, does not believe either in Truth or in JusticeTruth for it is what it says it is at any particular time and with regard to any particular issue or situation.

And Justice for it always comes tailored to its own needs and circumstances. For such a Kafir Mindset, there is always one Justice for self and one’s own and a totally different Justice for everybody else.

Double standards are endemic to a Kafir mind. It is like Heads I Win, Tails You Lose.

Islam, on the other hand, is the name for Universal Truth and One Justice for All

Islam means Truth is Truth, no matter who says it, and no matter whom it benefits or hurts.

And Islam means friends and foes alike will receive the same kind of Justice. Under Islam, it is not One Justice for Me and My People, and a Different Justice for Others.

It was to end the Disparity in Truth Telling and Double Standards in Meting Out Justice that Islam came into this world. And Islam has been holding this fort ever since, all alone.

I am a Muslim today for these reasons. Not because I am a good or nice man. I am a Muslim because Islam gave me refuge when I was lost and I had nowhere to go.

I read the Qur’an and was blown away by the Aayat that says, in effect, Believers, Tell the Truth and Uphold Justice even if it be against yourselves or your own parents and relatives. 

This was a big deal in Pagan Arabia of Fourteen Centuries ago. These Arabs lived and died and waged wars and killed and marauded for their fathers and relatives. 

For such a fanatical people to be told in such stark terms: Tell the Truth and Uphold Justice without looking at whom it helps or hurts? 

That is simply mind-boggling. It is not possible that such a statement could have a human source. So, I ended up being dragged into Islam, bound but not gagged. For, no one was ever able to gag me, thank God Almighty for that.

Life to me is not life if it means loss of the right to think and to speak. That is why the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States is to me a reflection of the same Islam that came into this world 1400 years ago.

And then the words of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, sealed for me any possible exits there might have been. He said, in effect, people, listen carefully, earlier nations were destroyed because they had one system of Justice for the Rich and a very different system of Justice for the Poor.

And then he declared, what I am paraphrasing here: 

“I swear by God Almighty in whose hands my life is, if my own daughter 
Fatimah commits a crime like theft, she will also receive the same 
punishment that is prescribed for that crime. Just like everyone else.”

This was in a world 1400 years ago. In a place called Arabia where might was right and sword was the ultimate arbiter of who got what.

I cried and cried and cried and said: God Almighty, this is not human. Only you can create a system like this. And only a man who was selected and trained and appointed by you could think and speak like that.

Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam!

That is how I got stuck with Islam. I had nowhere to go. Nothing else was worth the bother. There was no competition from anywhere. Not even close. 

And I became a fan. If it is all right to use that expression, Fan. I never used that expression for anyone or anything with regard to myself. Never did. But when Islam cornered me the way it did, I became a fan of Islam. 

So, today I am calling myself a Fan. Not of a celebrity. Not of a sports team. Not of something else of that kind. But of all things Islam.

And if I were not terrified of fellows hitting me with all kinds of Fatwas — not that their Fatwas really matter — I would even say a Fan of the Qur’an; and a Fan of the Hadith; and a Fan of God Almighty himself; and of his most amazing Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

And I want to devote my life, and I have indeed done so for decades now, to build a life and a world whose contours I see in the Qur’an and in the Hadith. A world in which Truth and Justice will be the same for everybody, for friends as well as for foes.

Today, the world is 1400 years older. Nations and societies pride themselves how civilized they have become. 

Balderdash, I say. Nothing has changed for the world from the Pagan Culture of Arabia of 1400 years ago. It is the same Pagan Culture of Double Standards and a Kafir Mindset that we see prevailing everywhere.

Today, for nations and peoples, as well as for individuals, families and groups, the Kafir Mindset of Double Standards controls thought as well as action, policy as well as practice: In both Truth Telling and in Delivering Justice.

And it is this Kafir Mindset of Double Standards that has been at the root of much of Humanity’s troubles all these 1400 years. And that includes the barbarism of European Colonialism as well as World Wars One and Two.

Today, politicians of all stripes put out their fingers in the wind and then decide to speak. Media all over the world think long and hard how to cover a certain story and then go in the direction they think is the best. Neither group, not politicians and not the media, are committed to the simple notion of One Truth for All and One Justice for All.

The Kafir Mindset of Double Standards prevails everywhere. Except in Islam. So, what choice do I have but to be a Muslim?

END
