Imagine a World without Oil – Muslim Oil!

You do not need to be a great scholar. You do not need to be a great researcher. You do not need to be a great thinker. You do not need to be great anything. All you need to be able to do is to sit down. All by yourself. In a corner somewhere, if you wish. And imagine. Just imagine.

Imagine a 20th Century without oil – Muslim Oil.

Imagine World War I. Imagine World War II.

Imagine a world without ships: passenger ships, cruise liners, freighters, merchant vessels – and naval carriers, submarines and destroyers.

Imagine a world without the aviation industry. A world without commercial airlines – without Pan Am, without Lufthansa, without British Airways, without UPS and Federal Express and without all the other passenger and air freight carriers – and without all the air forces of the world and their fighters and bombers and transports and helicopters.

Imagine a world without the automotive and locomotive industries. A world without GM, Ford, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz and all the cars, trucks, trailers, buses and trains that populate roads or ply the tracks all over the world – and all the tanks and armored personnel carriers and military supply vehicles.

Imagine a world without the oil industry – a world without Exxon, Chevron, Mobil, BP, Total, Shell, Citgo and all the other oil giants and all that they mean in terms of meeting the world’s oil needs, providing jobs and everything else.

Oil, Oil, Everywhere – Muslim Oil

Imagine all of these things without oil – Muslim Oil – and its countless byproducts and derivatives.

Imagine a medical industry without oil – Muslim Oil – and its byproducts.

And imagine the space industry.

And imagine just plain life without oil – Muslim Oil – and all the many, many byproducts it yields.

Imagine all the clothes and sneakers you wear; all the plastic you use; all the construction material; and all else that make human civilization possible.

Imagine a world without ID and Credit Cards or a world without CDs and computers.

Imagine everything else that is a direct product or derivative of oil – Muslim Oil.

And then ask yourself what life would have been without oil – Muslim Oil. What the 20th Century would have been and what the history and fate of the world would have been without oil – Muslim Oil?

Thinking Is Critical to Human Life

You don’t need anyone to tell you all this, or to explain to you any of this in any great detail, backed up by reams upon reams of data.

All you need to be able to do is to sit all by yourself somewhere in a quiet place – and then think. That will tell you everything about the role of oil – Muslim Oil – in our world: yesterday; today; and tomorrow.

It will tell you everything you need to know about how oil – Muslim Oil – played a critical and determining role in forming, shaping and moving the modern world all through the 20th Century. And what role it is set to play going forward into the 21st Century.

Qur’an Wants Everyone to Think

That is why Qur’an puts a premium on thinking. Thinking in general as well as thinking on specific questions. Thinking alone, all by oneself, or thinking in the company of others.

A-falaa tatafakkaroon – admonishes the Qur’an – meaning: do you not think? The Qur’an uses this or a derivative of this root word Fikr close to 50 times! Imagine that!

A-falaa ta’aqiloon – asks the Qur’an – meaning: do you not understand? Once again, the Qur’an uses this very expression, or one related to it from the root word Aql, close to 20 times.

That is Qur’an, mind you, what most people in the world would call a “religious” text, not a manual or textbook of modern logic, philosophy or science.

Let us not forget that the Qur’an came down to earth – 1400 years ago – in the barren and backward land of Arabia, not in one of the ancient centers of civilization and culture like Rome, Greece, India, Persia or China.

Nor is the Qur’an a product of advanced and sophisticated research in premier educational and research institutions of America and Europe today.

Let us not forget also that the Qur’an came to us through the medium of an unlettered, unschooled child of Arabia’s trackless desert, Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. The Qur’an is not the product of the mind of any of the ancient or modern giants of learning, language, thought or scholarship like Socrates, Plato or Aristotle; or Bertrand Russell or Einstein; or Noam Chomsky or Stephen Hawking.

Qur’an vs. Great Books of Human Authorship

Not that it would have made the Qur’an any better – being the product of a great human scholar or thinker, or of several of them working together in committee. All that it would have done is to put a serious human limitation – a palpable upper limit – on the form, content and style of the Qur’an.

The Qur’an then would have been just another book – albeit a great one perhaps – like all the other great books that human beings compiled and crafted from time to time. Full of visible holes, errors, doubts and uncertainties, soaring to great heights of fame and recognition today and fading into oblivion or a faint and distant memory tomorrow.

It would not have been the divine book that the Qur’an is today – error-free and so visibly and definitively defying and transcending all constraints of time, space and cultural specificity.

For, human books, no matter how brilliant, erudite or distinguished their authors, are still human creations. They are limited by all that limits human existence on earth. The Qur’an on the other hand is a divine book from beginning to end, fresh and relevant forever, and full of miracles and surprises at every turn.
