Deviation in Western Countries (Part 2)
When I was in the United States, I was told about the story of a young man who loved his neighbours’ daughter
Consulting his father about marrying her, he replied: “O son, beware of this marriage! She is your sister but your mother knows not about it.”
It’s the fact that his father was a womanizer. When the son consulted his father again about another girl, he gave the same reply.
And he gave the same reply about a third girl
He then complained to his mother who told him “Choose the girl you want to marry; you are not his son but he knows not.”
I fear you misunderstand my talk as a generalization. I don’t generalize. Generalization is a form of ignorance,
In each country, there’re still some good people, there’re still some discipline people, there’re still some moral ones
What I’m talking about is the vast majority
I’m talking about is the vast majority as I live in a society where there’re still morals,
where there’s still chivalry, but the point is: the past societies’ morals are not found today
Nonetheless, the law is above all. There are equal opportunities and specific standards by which people now are evaluated
All these are positive points, this is why they are powerful
dominating the whole world
Therefore, the noted great scholar, Ibn Taimiyyah, said,
“Allah allows the just non-Muslim state to gain victory over the unjust Muslims state.”
A just unbelieving nation may continue to prosper, whereas a believing and unjust nation may fail.
That’s a fact, the bitter truth. All I wish with every cell in my body and every drop of my blood,
that we combine authenticity and values.
I probably visited America six times.
On my last visit, I went to visit Islamic organizations and Islamic institutes
Old rules changed now are different
If one is sure that he will live and practice their faith in the Western countries, so there is no harm in it
But if the price of living there is to leave behind one’s religion
and all one’s values, then it’s better to stay in your country
I remember Sheikh Qaradawi (may Allah protect him) saying that if you cannot ensure that your grandson will be Muslim
then it is not permissible to stay in these countries where religion is unconsciously unwelcome
Undoubtedly, there’re descent families, but the majority…
