Islam & Politics: Different, Related or Same?

Islam & Politics: 
Different, Related or Same?

Dr. Pasha

At www.IslamicSolutions.com, we bring Islam to the world one small idea at a time. Making that idea as clear as we possibly can. One little nugget of Truth at a time as it were. 

In some rare instances, we comment on some selected current events.

The thing about Islam is billions love or hate it, but few really know or understand it. For example, how many people really know that Islam is all about Truth: pursuing it; knowing it; accepting it; speaking it; supporting it? 

And Truth, according to the Qur’an, is the saving grace of humanity. 

Wa Tawaasawu Bil Haqqi, says the Qur’an, holding up hope for those who practice and preach Truth — and suffer and sacrifice for it.

For Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, Truth came before God. And so it is for all: Truth before God.

Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, was Al-Saadiq, the Truthful One, before the Qur’an ever came to him and declared him to be a Mu’min or a Believer.

Aamanar Rasoolu, is how the Qur’an puts it.

What most people don’t know is also the fact that God is Truth.

As the Qur’an says:

Annallaha Huwal Haqq.

So, to believe in God and run from Truth is a contradiction in terms. It is a lie.

As a result, those who know Islam will readily see that politics done right, and using Truth as its weapon of choice, is Islam. And Islam cannot exist in this world without the use of what most people will call politics, but politics practiced with nothing but Truth as its core methodology and philosophy.

For, Islam is about God and God is Truth.

So, where is the surprise if Truth has the power to shake up the world at any given time, in any given place? 

And Truth is doing precisely that right now in America as two politicians, one from extreme right, Donald Trump, and the other from extreme left, Bernie Sanders, are unleashing, each in his own very unique and special way, an avalanche of Truth on the American electorate for too long poisoned on a steady diet of fraud and falsehood.

Sanders may or may not win. For, the forces of status quo arrayed against him are too strong and too cunning and rolling in too much corrupt money.

Trump on the other hand looks like a sure winner — well, more or less. He has been able to lay the forces of falsehood low — at least for now — by a mixture of personal bravado and fiery rhetoric that is a heady blend of sexism, racism and xenophobia. 

Trump has said some pretty nasty things about Muslims too. But nothing that other politicians of both the right and the left do not believe or have not implied or said in one way or another. Or have not done in actual practice.

But the American public loves Trump’s often outrageous rhetoric, not only because it seems to tap into a latent racist current that runs through American society. but, more so, because Trump’s pronouncements have a distinct ring of Truth to them.

As a result, when Trump speaks, those listening to him know he is telling the truth, no matter how warped his approach or how gruff his demeanor.

And that may be one reason why Trump still may not win and become president. For, his penchant for raw truth-telling may be abhorrent to forces in American society about whom presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower and Carter all warned the American nation.

But Allah has his own way of getting Truth out when and how and where he wants. And right now Truth in varying doses is coming out of the mouths of both Sanders and Trump, one Democrat and the other Republican, in this American presidential election 2016.

Let the smart people decide whether what is going on in America right now is pure politics, pure Islam, or a mix of both.

On my part, I cannot help but say: God bless the Truth Tellers, whoever and wherever they may be. For, they speak the language of God.

Qawuluhul Haqq!

Paraphrase:

God speaks the Truth (6:73).

That is how the Qur’an puts it.

Or again: 

Wa Man Asdaqu Minallahi Qeelaa (4:122)?

Paraphrase:

Who speaks Truth better than God?

And when God goes to do battle, again using his weapon of Truth, results are always interesting. 

END
