News Right Now: An Oath of Treachery
Welcome to another episode of News Right Now: An Oath of Treachery
It has been a decade since the Revolution started in Tunisia with hope and desire to bring a change. Has the Revolution brought a change to its people? Has the system fallen despite a change of face? Of course, they need to find a different approach to steer Muslims from the love of Islam so the reoccurrence of an Arab Spring never arises. The fear shakes their chairs so how can they steer them away?
One tactic to steer them away is using new terms such as “Islamists, terrorists, etc” to divert them away for their love of Islam. Tunisian President Kais Saied said Tunisians are "Muslims, not Islamists" after his visit to Egypt, sparking widespread controversy. He also slammed representatives of “political Islam” in the country. He addressed Tunisians at the start of Ramadan, he hoped for an end to the coronavirus pandemic and to “political epidemics,” in an implicit reference to Islamists. Tunisian President Kais Saied still insists that political Islam shouldn’t be addressed and he affirmed “bring down” representatives of political Islam in the country. He wants change in Tunisia all while still respecting and adhering to the man-made constitution. How? How will you resolve this issue while you omitted the Quran & Sunnah from the constitution?
Saied gave an oath, swearing by the Quran that he will respect the constitution and then praised former president Habib Bourguiba, who Saied believes liberated the Tunisian society, minds, and achieved an educational revolution in the 70’s. By changing the way they dressed, behaved, and changed all aspects of their lives. How is it that he gives an oath, swearing by the Quran, to exclude the Quran from Ruling?!!! This is a contradiction and a crime! Then he praises Bourgudia- who fought Islam, as well as openly contradicting the Quran! As well as leading a project of westernization, changing the curricula to one that holds western thoughts! This is only little of what he has done, and he has been praised!
Does he not know that the colonizers of Tunisia made them issues of development, poverty, hunger, work and increasing salaries, as if we are a nation of hungry people waiting for someone to feed us? As for our plundered wealth, it is an exclusive concession seized by Western companies with the aid of traitors and brokers of the people. The West and its agents work tirelessly to prevent return of the state of Islam by trying to separate the Ummah; implying Muslims are extremists, making it sound like when we abide by the laws of Allah (swt) we become extremists. They try to make it seem like you can take what you want from Islam and leave the rest by separating religion from life, so they remain in power.
(وَمَنْ يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الْإِسْلَامِ دِيناً فَلَنْ يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ)
“And whoever desires other than Islam as religion- never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter will be among the losers.” [Al-i-Imran: 85].
One day, they will see that all the plans they planned and all the words they said will, in the end, lead to their downfall. That day will come and we will all stand tall, as one whole. Bizin Illah!
