The Muslim Times' Response to ISIS in one Word: Secularism


O ye who believe! be steadfast in the cause of Allah, bearing witness in equity; and let not a people’s enmity incite you to act otherwise than with justice. Be always just, that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah. Surely, Allah is aware of what you do. (Al Quran 5:9)

  1. The prophets had come in the world to teach good moral and bring people close to God Almighty, without any politics. It was the local rulers who dragged the prophets into politics or accused the prophet of politicking. Please see the example of hazrat Abraham and Moses and Jesus and Muhammad. See the life of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.s. the first 13 years in Makkah. It speaks for itself. There was no politics.
    The prophets had never come to force any type of government on their people. They never came to establish their own government.
    That means the religion was not for politics. And the state had to be secular not theocratic.
