THE EFFECTS OF THE ATHEISM OF WESTERN SECULAR EDUCATION
A Deeni Student from the U.K. writes:
Indoctrinated by western and secularist values of ‘tolerance’, ‘kindness’ and liberalism, many Muslims, living in the west, who do little to preserve their Imaan, often ask, how is it possible that a loving, kind Jew or Christian with exemplary character will go to Jahannam?
Implicit in this question is their lack of knowledge of explicit text of the Qur’an in which Allah Ta’ala says the only Deen acceptable to him is Islam & that every sin can be forgiven except kufr/shirk.
Some of these so-called Muslims who ask this question in various ways to obtain the answer they want, do in fact have a vague knowledge of these verses. Hence, by their continuous questioning on this issue, they demonstrate the kufr lurking in their hearts. What other conclusion can be drawn when a person implicitly and continuously questions the Law of Allah?
These youth fail to understand that values of kindness, tolerance, love etc. are divinely determined by the Almighty, not by their own intellect which has become vegetative due to the values of secularism they have absorbed over a period of time.
The abode of Abu Talib, who supported, defended and loved Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is made clear in Qur’an, yet so-called Muslims argue that a Member of Parliament in UK, namely Jo Cox, who supported Muslim causes and was murdered will go to heaven because of her “good character.”
When the youth of today are presented with the explicit text of Qur’an and Ahadith which negate their notion that not all Jews and Christians will go to Jahannam, they then throw a curve ball in to the equation stating: “Who are we to judge, Allah is most merciful?” Yes, Allah is most merciful, but he is also the: Avenger, Just, Reducer, Abaser and Retaliator.
When He has laid out explicitly and unambiguously the position of a non- Muslim in the hereafter, regardless of his good deeds, since when did it become acceptable to impliedly plead his/her case in this dunya?
Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam was forbidden from making du’a for his beloved uncle after he passed away, due to his disbelief, yet Muslims today are praying for Ms Jo Cox.
Love, tolerance, compassion, mercy are all encapsulated within the Deen, yet lack of effort on Imaan has led to adoption of western and secularist definitions.
Little do these Muslims realise the gravity of the crime of kufr and ascribing sons to Allah. This is treason like no other, yet “Muslims”, fearful of their shadow, continue their concomitance with kufr by stating: “I break boundaries and not hearts.” The surreptitious kufr present in this statement is obvious to a person with true Imaan. (End of the Student’s article)
It is only hidden kufr lurking in the heart which constrains people to pose this type of question which is in diametric conflict with the Qur’aan Majeed. Allah Ta’ala states explicitly in the Qur’aan Majeed that:
Besides Islam, no other religion is acceptable to Him.
The deeds (i.e. good deeds) of the kuffaar are like mirages and will not be accepted in the Aakhirat.
With their emotions constrained by their hidden kufr, they will not be able to gain salvation for the kuffaar in the Hereafter. Regardless of their emotions and views, the lot of the kuffaar cannot be altered. How exactly Allah Ta’ala will treat the kuffaar in general, and kuffaar in particular in the Aakhirah is not our concern. We have no power over the decrees and decisions of Allah Azza Wa Jal. What we are aware of is that Allah Ta’ala is Aadil (Just)and Rahmaan (Most Merciful), and Hakeem (Most Wise).
Thus, whatever Allah Ta’la will do with the kuffaar in the Aakhirat will be in consonance with His Adl, Rahmat and Hikmat. If Allah Ta’ala wills to assign all the kuffaar to Jannat and all the Muslims to Jahannam, it will be in conformity with His eternal Sifaat of Adl, Rahmat and Hikmat.
We are bound to focus on the Shariah – on the teachings of the Qur’aan and Sunnah. We are not supposed to glance beyond the confines of the Shariah and to create turmoil in our beliefs by postulating unfounded, unsubstantiated theories acquired by means of hallucination. Regardless of how appealing and appeasing to the westernized intellect the theory of salvation for kuffaar may appear, the fact remains that it is totally unsubstantiated by the Qur’aan and Ahaadith. In fact, it is in glaring conflict with the teachings of the Deen.
If a westernized brain is overwhelmed with a peculiar conception of ‘kindness’. ‘tolerance’ and ‘mercy’, which in terms of the Shariah is kufr, the repository of such a kufr theory should endeavour to understand that his theory is firstly uncorroborated by Shar’i evidence, and secondly, his theory cannot compel Allah Ta’ala to change His Law. The Qur’aan Majeed states several times: “You will not find any change for the Sunnah of Allah.”
Then it is imperative for the westernized person who professes Islam, to understand that whatever Allah Ta’ala will do with the kuffaar on the Day of Qiyaamah will be His prerogative, and no amount of concern by people will be able to interdict Allah’s prerogative. Thus, he should convince himself that whatever treatment Allah Ta’ala will mete out to the kuffaar and to the most benevolent and kind kaafir will not be the effect of the theory he has conjectured. Now why encumber oneself with a theory/belief which could spell disaster for one’s own Imaan and which could destroy one’s salvation in the Aakhirat?
The question which these westernized minds pose is not only futile. It is destructive since it destroys Imaan. Fabricating theories of compassion will not avail Jo Cox. Whatever Allah Ta’ala has decreed for her will be her lot. It is most unintelligent to say the least, to become embroiled in an argument about the situation of Jo Cox and similar others. Our ideas and theories will not be the determinants for Allah Azza Wa Jal to decide their fate.
The springboard or the fundamental pivot of western education is atheism. It is therefore to be found that in every branch of western secular education the ethos is atheism. Atheism permeates every aspect of western secular education. Innumerable Muslims – Muslims by the million – have lost and destroyed their Imaan at the altar of western secular education. It is no wonder that the Akaabir Ulama had branded western education Haraam.
Whilst the products of western secular institutions do not openly profess to be atheists, their hearts are corrupted, brains convoluted and eternally ruined with the attitudes and ideas of atheism. May Allah Ta’ala save our Imaan from the onslaught of satanism and atheism.

A NOBLE “IGNORAMUS”
If the end result of western education is what we are witnessing, viz. emulation of western culture, atheistic mockery of the Deen and of the people of the Deen and the worship of kuffaar rulers, then for a Muslims it is noble to remain ignorant (of western education).
–Hadhrat Shaikul Hind Maulana Mahmudul Hasan [rahmatullahi alayh]
IT IS NOBLER TO BE A SCAVENGER!
The profession of western education (i.e. the acquisition of secular sciences in western institutions) is worse than the profession of the street-sweepers. The work of scavenging entails external impurity whereas western education entails baatini (Inner, esoteric – pertaining to the Rooh) impurity. Beliefs are corrupted by this form of education.
