Inauguration of Rasulullah (SAWA) is a Program of Comprehensive Reform -Part VI-
POLITICAL ISLAM VERSUS PASSIVE ISLAM
One further point on the subject of bi’that and the purpose of raising Prophets (a.s) is that their program, which is being precisely described in the Holy Quran with verse 157 from Surah A’araaf (chapter 7 of the Holy Quran) cited earlier, is not possible by limiting their discourse to some moral and ethical lessons (Akhlaq). The program of reform and revolution of Prophets (a.s) is not confined to spiritual exercises and acts of worship (Ibadah).
To materialize and actualize the program of the divine Prophets (a.s) requires a complete, comprehensive picture of Islam! Their divine program is not possible without political Islam, to put it quite bluntly! Yes, political Islam which has become a swear word these days, where the West are fighting feverishly against it!
Honestly speaking, there is no Islam without politics! It is not possible to imagine Islam without a political system! This is my concluding point to the first khutbah.
On the one side, we have the concept of bi’that and those comprehensive principles and aims of the inauguration of Prophets (a.s) and especially our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAWA). And then on the other side we have the Islam which has nothing to do with politics and social justice! This is not the Islam which the Holy Quran speaks about or what the Prophet of Islam (SAWA) brought to this world!
Naturally, this complete, comprehensive Islam is a threat to the interest of the superpowers and their hegemony and monopoly over the nations. This is a modern type of slavery, and therefore we oppose it! They do not feel threatened by Islam which speaks only about ethics and spirituality and nothing else!
We hope and prayer to Almighty Allah (SWT) to grant us the Taufeeq to understand Islam in its holistic form as the pure and pristine Muhammadean Islam.
