Radical Islam and Liberal Islam: Where have they been coined from?

By Abdul Hannan Siwani Nadvi

Radical Islam or liberal Islam or radical Muslims or liberal Muslims have been hitting newspapers and headlines for long times.

Entire world with the help of a few Muslims belonging to a so-called liberal Islam has been united to fight against radical Islam. Some Muslims, who are educated but have no sense of education, have been busy in spreading liberal Islam in the world.

The religion which was revealed to Prophet Mohammad (Sallalaho alaihe wasallam) was only one and it was Islam which was approved by Allah Tabrak-o-Ta'ala.

Qura'an says:

الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الإِسْلاَمَ دِينًا

“This day I have perfected for you your Deen and completed My favour upon you and have approved for you Islam as Deen.” (Qura'an5:3)

This Qura'anic verse clearly states that there is only one religion and one Islam approved by Allah Tabarak-o-Ta'ala. So, when there is only one Islam approved for the Ummah of Prophet Mohammad (Sallalaho alaihe wasallam), then from where radical Islam, or liberal Islam or radical Muslims or liberal Muslims emerged.

Qura'an approves only one Islam, except that all kinds of Islam are disapproved by Qura'an itself. So, calling Muslims a radical Muslim or a liberal Muslim is incorrect completely. It is a bid to divide Muslims and fool other communities, who are much interested to know about Islam and Islamic life, to keep them away from the light of Islam.

Qura'an dose not approve radical Islam or liberal Muslims or liberal Islam. There is no room of such terms or such religion with new names in Muslim and Islamic society.

Eventually, in every era dictatorial governments and tyrant systems had been using some terms and some reasons to take Muslims and their states under their despotic government's control, like that, in this era in which education has become a source of carrying out massacres, the term like radical Islam or radical Muslims or liberal Islam or liberal Muslims coined and are being used frequently to be easy in targeting Muslims anywhere in the world.

These terms manufactured and generated by the people and elements who want to put Islam and Muslims always in violence so that they cannot be able to get the atmosphere pushes them toward peace, education and development.

The war on terror, which destabilized Muslim countries, destroyed their economic system and became a cause of unwanted violence and forced Muslim youths to take weapon in their hands to protect sovereignty of their countries and their lands, is based on radical Islam and radical Muslims. Using these terms, US, EU, and NATO allies have been on hunt for Muslims and Muslim countries across the globe.

Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed in Pakistan tribal areas in drone attacks which US says eliminated many people belong to radical Islam or radical Muslims.

This time, when International community is assisting Libyan people militarily, there is strict vigilance on National Transitional Council of Libya by US and NATO over the issue of radical Islam and radical Muslims.

US and its allies went Afghanistan for eliminating the root causes to radical Islam or radical Muslims by pointing the gun toward Taliban and Alqaeda as US thinks they are leading radical Islam and creating radical Muslims, in fact there was no such kind of religion in Afghanistan which is called radical Islam or radical Muslims.

The elements, who are leading the war and spreading destruction in entire globe, made entire glob feel that radical Islam and radical Muslims are a constant threat to world peace however neither radical Islam nor radical Muslims exit anywhere in the world.

When there is no Islam called radical Islam or Muslims called radical Muslims, these religions or terms lose their legitimacy even it makes all kinds of wars, all kinds of violence and all kinds of hidden and covert operations are carrying out in the guise of these terms baseless, groundless and reasonless.

It is upon Muslims to be careful from such kind of educated propaganda whose aim to bring anarchy, devastation, and destabilization in Muslim countries as well as in Muslim community, and don't allow others to make hole in their religious affairs for their political and economic interests.
