“If I told you that Christian missionaries were going to your child’s school and aggressively proselytizing to them and pressuring them to leave Islam and become Christians, wouldn’t you be alarmed? Wouldn’t you be angry and concerned?
What if I told you these missionaries weren’t at your child’s school one day but were there every single day, just constantly pressuring your kid to accept Christianity and leave his Islamic faith behind. Would you keep your child at that school?
The reality is, virtually all schools in the Western world (and many in the Muslim world as well) are indoctrinating your children, but the religion being imposed is not Christianity. It is secular liberal materialism.
If you have ever wondered why our youth are leaving Islam in droves, there is a clear reason for it. It’s not some freak phenomenon that no one can control. It has a clear cause. We have to do something, anything, to protect our kids and counteract any damage that has already been done.”
~ Daniel Haqiqatjou
Though this letter is probably bogus, I am sure many of us have at times come across teachers like Adam Hilliker here, who regard questioning their authority as only a shade below questioning the will of God.
Though I am certain there are many great teachers out there, there are also way too many who teach by rote, rigidly according to the set syllabus, or else are themselves trapped in the mindset of modern western education, a methodology designed to mold and train our children and youth to become obedient workers rather than thinkers and creators of ideas.
This is one of the many reasons why myself and my wife chose to home school our kids and have stuck to that decision when many others have fallen by the wayside, gone over to the dark side of packing their kids off to secular schools in the UK.
You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah .
Quran translation, Surah Ale ‘Imran, 3:110
How can we hope to rise up to that level and be the best nation when we have given up on trying to change the crookedness of society around us?
May Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala protect all our kids, and allow us to be his instruments in raising up a generation who come to set a better example for the whole of mankind, not just to be conformists, but changers and reformers of society, enjoining the ma’roof and forbidding the munkar, ameen
Here is a copy of the full report commissioned by 5 Pillars on ‘Normative Islam’ i.e what can be considered the normal practice and beliefs of the Muslims in the UK, as pretty much agreed across all mainstream Islamic groups.
The importance of this report is vital for the current debate taking place in the UK establishment’s attempts to deform, distort and change Islam to something more pleasing and palatable to secular / liberal / democratic values in the UK.
It can now be shown that when they seek to cast doubt over islamic teachings, claiming differences of opinion, or ‘some scholars’ disagree etc, we can now quite clearly show with empirical proof that the overwhelming majority of Islamic scholars / thinkers / speakers / leaders across the UK are with us on this and a few crackpots cannot alter that, no matter how much they are loved by the liberal media arm of the British establishment who seek to amplify their voice.
May Allaah (subhana wa ta’ala) reward the brothers and sisters involved in 5 Pillars for all their efforts in pulling everyone together from so many different strands of Islamic thought to produce this report, and guide those non-Muslim professionals and acedemics who have brought it all together, ameen
