People have been warning for years, if not decades against this eventuality. This is what liberal secularism leads to. Anything and everything goes.
Abu Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, among the words people obtained from the Prophets are this: If you feel no shame, do as you wish.”Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 3483, Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Al-Bukhari
People have lost any sense of shame. They can walk outside dressed like dogs with a “master” holding their chain. They’ve for a long time been naked at beaches, and essentially naked with simply string covering their private parts. This was a long time coming. From the inception of America, when they decided to separate church (religion) from the state (society). This is the result. Rather than separating religion from the state, they’ve only inserted their godless religion (liberalism) into the state.
At schools teachers promote and push their ideology. They’re not allowed to push any “religion” but they are encouraged to promote liberalism. And I ask you, what is really the difference between liberalism and other religions? In almost every way I would argue liberalism is far far worse. Liberalism has no foundation. Every few years they push what is accepted and unacceptable in society. At least religions have boundaries, that yes can be re-interpreted to mean nothing, but their reinterpretation is actually based on liberal pressures. Left alone those individual religions would remain mostly the same, or at least the change would be gradual. But with liberalism it’s every few years. From black lives matter, to sexualization of children, to my body my choice, to shut up and get vaccinated, to LGBT, to LGBTQ, to LGBTQ+.
As Muslims we obviously care because we are a part of this society and Allah says in the Quran.
كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِQuran (3:110)
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.
Our job is to enjoin good and forbid evil, so we definitely care. But why I’m writing this article, is because many of our kids are in public schools, which teaches the ideology of liberalism. As Malcolm X said,
Only a fool would let his enemy teach his childrenMalcolm X
Us Muslims were asleep when LGBTQ was knocking on the door less than a decade ago, and now comes the pedophiles. Wake up! No matter how hard it might be, if you can, take your kids out of public schools. Send them to Islamic schools, or homeschool them. There are many resources online and offline. Put in the effort to protect your kids. What good is it, that your kids become doctors and lawyers, but they have no eemaan, they’re atheist, they’re LGBTQ, and they’re headed for eternal damnation. Our first job as parents is to raise righteous children for Jannah. Let us take our job seriously.
How can other groups with insignificant numbers be so brazen about their beliefs, but us as Muslims with nearly 2 billion people are shy to speak the truth of our religion? It is a duty for us to stand up and speak the truth.
