The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “You will follow the wrong ways, of your predecessors so completely and literally that if they should go into the hole of a lizard, you too will go there.” We said, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! Do you mean the Jews and the Christians?” He replied, “Whom else?”

Allah has given repeated accounts of the mistakes of previous nations in His Book.  However, if Muslims do not learn from the telling, they will make the same mistakes, including:

  • Belief in exceptionalism and entitlement to Paradise for namesake:
    • “And they(Jews) say, “Never will the Fire touch us, except for a few days.”
    • “And they say, “None will enter Paradise except one who is a Jew or a Christian.””
  • Attachment to the temporal, material life:
    • “And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life – [even] more than those who associate others with Allah . One of them wishes that he could be granted life a thousand years, but it would not remove him in the least from the [coming] punishment that he should be granted life. And Allah is Seeing of what they do.”
  • Contorting the revealed teachings to suit one’s opinion:
    • “Among the Jews are those who distort words from their [proper] usages and say, “We hear and disobey” and “Hear but be not heard” and “Ra’ina,” twisting their tongues and defaming the religion. And if they had said [instead], “We hear and obey” and “Wait for us [to understand],” it would have been better for them and more suitable. But Allah has cursed them for their disbelief, so they believe not, except for a few.”
  • Failing to prevent their cohorts from wrong-doing and wrong living:
    • Cursed were those who disbelieved among the Children of Israel by the tongue ofDavid and of Jesus, the son of Mary. That was because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed.  They used not to prevent one another from wrongdoing that they did.”
  • Living like cattle, without moral purpose:
    • “while those who disbelieve take their comfort in this life and eat even as the cattle eat, and the Fire is their habitation.”
  • Making the mistake of thinking they are doing good, while they are creating their own destruction:
    • “Say, [O Muhammad], “Shall we [believers] inform you of the greatest losers as to [their] deeds?  [They are] those whose effort is lost in worldly life, while they think that they are doing well in work.”

Today’s Muslims are deluded.  Most ignore Islam entirely.  Many believe their rituals, like Salah and hijab, will save them.  This is a Jewish belief.  Others believe that merely “being Muslim” will save them.  This is a delusion of both Christians and Jews.

Musims are living as the slaves of capitalism, a system which all experts agree is destroying human civilization.  And Muslims do not take a moral stand on real issues.  The worst situation is the ruination of the soul through moral degeneracy.  Allah says:

“And indeed he fails who corrupts his own self”

A Political Agenda that Western Muslims Can Fight for

And what is the result of our negligence?  Allah has sent destruction and suffering across the entire Muslim world !
