The Meltdown of Nazism and Communism
By Shaykh Abdullah Faisal
(Evening dars) PalTalk – May 18, 2013
Notes ( AT-10 & wearefromwater ) / Edit (AT-10 /Z)
Allah Told us that these isms and schisms will fail
- They are called bautil -
- any ideology with “ism” at the end, is the hallmark of bautil
Examples: socialism, capitalism, Nazism, Judaism..
- these are ideologies not creeds
- Islam is not an ideology,
- Islam is a Creed (Aqeedah)
- It is haraam to say "Islam is an ideology".
The word aqeedah is taken from the root word aqada, which means "to tie something tight".
You do not digress from Quran and Sunnah,
- your creed is tightly tied to Quran and Sunnah.
- You do not stray from Quran and Sunnah.
We have seen many ideologies rise and fall,
- all around the world, especially in Europe.
- THE MELTDOWN OF NAZISM
NAZISM :: (Why did it fail?)
Nazi-ism = The Arian race is superior race, the master race
- All other races are inferior.
Hitler got his ideology from Darwinism,
- Charles Darwin believed that we all evolved from monkeys,
- and the white race are fully evolved,
- all other races are yet to evolve, - therefore less intelligent.
Hitler believed that the German race was the master race,
- and they have the right to rule the world,
- they should conquer the world because they are the master race.
- Nazism is also nationalism and racism.
- It's all about the survival of the fittest.
- So if there should be a race war, the white race would wipe out all other races.
- THE SEVEN CATEGORIES OF RACISM -
1) Biological racism.
- blue eyes and blond hair, they are the most handsome race,
- Hitler launched a sterilization program,
- in which only women with blue eyes and blond hair were allowed to give birth.
- all other women were sterilized.
- if you didn't have blue eyes and blond hair, you didn't reach the standard of beauty.
2) Academic/Educational Racism.
- eg, when Malcolm X wanted to be a lawyer,
- His teacher took away his confidence,
- saying that he would never make it,
- no one would employ him.
- All you need to be to be a good lawyer is an erudite speaker.
The man who won the case for O.J. Simpson was black.
- So to keep a certain race out of certain courses, is educational racism.
In South Africa, only white people went to certain schools during the apartheid.
- The school was in Johannesburg.
- It was only for the elite (the whites).
3. Economical Racism.
- To use the IMF and the World Bank, to bankrupt other economies and trash their currencies
- Lending them money and charging them high interest rates.
- Many generations will have to pay back the loan.
- They use the riba to trash the currencies.
The Prophet (saws) said:
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (SAW) said: "Riba has seventy segments, the least serious being equivalent to a man committing adultery with his own mother." [Sunan Ibn Majah (3/337) No. 2274 and Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/43) No. 2259]
4) Political Racism.
To use the veto of certain nations, to bully other nations.
- The whole purpose of seeking economic power is to establish political power
- because if you don't have any money, you don't have any power.
- you have nothing say, because “money talks and (‘b.s.’) walks”
5) Propaganda Racism.
To use the media to slander your enemies.
Look at Fox News - when they show documentaries about other countries,
- they slander and look down upon the countries.
- They use the media to propagate snobbery and white supremacy.
- "Fox Spews". - They spew venom.
- Especially at the Ummah Of Muhammad.
6) Technological Racism.
They want to have the nuclear bomb, but non-whites are not allowed.
- To put a monopoly on the technology.
- Israel is allowed to have the nuclear bomb,
- but not non-Israelis.
- If a Muslim country should have a nuclear bomb; it’s not permitted
- they say the difference is that Israel is a democracy;
- but Pakistan and Iran are also democracies, so why can’t they have nuclear weapons?
- Hitler also believed in technological racism,
- he said Germans will drive Benz, but the non-Germans will drive VW. (Volkswagen cars)
7) Military Racism
- Hitler firmly believed in military racism:
- that they should conquer the world,
- to him, it was his God-given right, he was a Catholic.
- Hitler opened up 23 war fronts;
- Not even the Prophet Muhammad did such
- when you conquer these lands, who is going to manage and control these lands.
- Poland, invaded and occupied.
- The Americans went into Afghanistan to occupy w/ holy hatred
- now they are being blown up every day by IEDs
The 23 War-Fronts of Hitler
1.POLAND - invaded and occupied
- Hitler firmly believed that the German race was the master race,
- the Pope gave Hitler his blessings to conquer the world.
- Hitler used the teachings of Darwin to launch his racist ideology called Nazism
- "Natzi-ism" – spelled Nazi but pronounced w/ a T
3. NORWAY- (1940) he launched a program there to sterilize women, ‘The Sterilization Plan’
5. HOLLAND – King and Queen ran away into exile
7. FRANCE – Hitler humiliated the French (France is the worst country in the world)
8. THE CHANNEL ISLANDS – under British rule
19. RUSSIA – Hitler’ army reached Moscow (he starved 3 million Russians to death, ‘The Hunger Plan’)
20. ITALY – because they decided to change sides
22. USA (Hitler’s allay, Japan, attacked USA @ Pearly Harbor)
23. UK – the Queen’s mother and Winston Churchill rallied the country to stand up to Hitler
However, Hitler did not say Insha Allah and lost the war with the UK
THE STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMEL’S BACK :: ‘Operation Barbarossa’ (June-Dec 1941)
-he broke a peace treaty he mad w/ Russia in 1939 (broken it in 1941)
-he invaded w/ 4 million soldiers and 600,00 vehicles
-this was the harshest winter Germany ever had (the vehicles’ engines froze)
WHY DID THE IDEOLOGY OF NAZISM FAIL?
-because Hitler believed in white supremacy (Aryan race)
-and the survival of the fittest
-and it was his God-given right to conquer the world
-but this ideology was repugnant, repellant and obnoxious
-most of the 55 million people he killed were white people
-he gained too many enemies, who conspired against him
-it also failed because he opened up too many warfronts
-he spread his army too thin
-he wanted people to speak German
-he performed “eugenics” – choosing who is propagated with
-he bit off more than he can chew, so Germany choked to death
It is insanity to open up too many war-fronts
-it’s easy to conquer a nation
Muhammad (pbuh) signed a treaty @ Hudabiyyah w/ Qureysh
-and didn’t open too many war-fronts
How did Hitler help America?
-by starting these wars w/ countries who needed weapons
-so US made money selling countries weapons
-this drew the USA out of the Great Depression
-Hitler was a baraka for America
-the Enola Gay (plane that dropped the bomb on Hiroshima – ordered by US President Truman)
-Britain even became bankrupt so they gave independence to other countries (Malaysia, Singapore)
Nazism failed because
-when you use the war on the battlefield, your ideology becomes null, void and useless
The Prophet (pbuh) conquered Makkah, the people came to Islam
-Because the Prophet (saws) humiliated kufr on the battle field.
- people like to identify with power, they like to see power.
- we were commanded to humiliate kufr
Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people, (9:14)
- If you don't humiliate kufr, the weak Muslims will apostate and become kuffaar.
- If you don't humiliate democracy the Muslims will become apostates believing in democracy.
- The Nazis lost because they opened too many warfronts,
- they bit off more than they could chew, and choked to death.
Not even the prophet Muhammad did that, he signed the treaty with Quraysh, at Hudaybiya.
- Then he took on the Jews of Khaibar.
- When the prophet signed the treaty Allah Revealed 48:1
Verily, We have given you (O Muhammad SAW) a manifest victory. (Al-Fath 48:1)
Nazism failed because the ideology is cursed, they hold Allah's creation with contempt.
- These are the ayat to refute racism : Allah Said: 82:8 - 49:13
In whatever form He willed, He put you together. (Al-Infitar 82
O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. one of the Muttaqûn (pious - see V.2:2). Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Al-Hujurat 49:13)
- Whenever an ideology is cursed it shall fail, because it is bautil;
- Allah made a Promise in the Quran:
And say: "Truth (i.e. Islāmic Monotheism or this Qur’an or Jihad against polytheists) has come and Bātil (falsehood, i.e. Satan or polytheism, etc.) has vanished. Surely! Bātil is ever bound to vanish." (Al-Isra 17:81)
- THE MELTDOWN OF COMMUNISIM
WHY DID COMMUNISM FAIL?
Communism is the ideology of Karl Marx, a Jew.
- It is the belief that all men are equal, and they work for the interest of the state.
People inherently act for their own self-interest
- so for you to tell them that they work for the interest of the state and not their own self-interest.
- This means that 1% of the state are the masters, the elite.
- The other 99% are slaves.
- The elite are the ones who enjoy the state.
This ideology is absurd, it kills your motivation, ambition and incentive.
- You have no incentive to survive.
- However if you encourage a market economy and the privatisation of companies,
- this motivates the population to survive.
- The people will have ambition, to strive to survive.
- They can see the fruits of their labour.
- it is impossible for a country to progress until the people prosper.
In communism you are a slave, and your salary is fixed.
- This ideology is absurd,
- how can a janitor, who cleans toilets in the hospital , earn the same as a doctor
When the Chinese saw the collapse of communism is Russia, they quickly launched a privatisation program in China.
- Communists do not encourage Privatisation and trade..
Those who eat Ribā (usury) will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by Shaitān (Satan) leading him to insanity. That is because they say: "Trading is only like Ribā (usury)," whereas Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Ribā (usury). So whosoever receives an admonition from his Lord and stops eating Ribā (usury) shall not be punished for the past; his case is for Allah (to judge); but whoever returns [to Ribā (usury)], such are the dwellers of the Fire - they will abide therein. (Al-Baqarah 2:275)
All the rich sahabas were traders,
- there is barakah in trading,
- and riba is cursed.
- So something that Allah has blessed, the communists took it away.
WHAT WAS THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN OF COMMUNISM? -
- When the Russians invaded Afghanistan in 1979
- They invaded in 1979 to install a puppet regime, who was loyal to the Soviet
- Afghanistan is the graveyard of all the super-powers.
- They failed to learn from this history.
- They bit off more than they could chew,
- when a person does this, they shall choke to death.
Millions of Muslims apostated and became communists,
- in the 1970's
- when it was in its hay-days, in the 1970's
- When the communists lost the war against the mujahideen, in Afghanistan,
- their ideology became null and void.
- Millions of Muslims returned to Islam, when they saw the defeat of the communists.
It is important that you humiliate the kufr, if you don't the weak Muslims will apostate.
- Allah told you in Surah Taubah 9:14, to disgrace kufr.
Allah commanded you this.
Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people, (At-Tawbah 9:14)
Today millions of weak Muslims have apostated to democracy,
- Why?, because you the Muslims did not disgrace democracy!
- Many Muslims have the White house in Washington as their qibla,
- Not the Kaaba in Makkah.
- Karl Marx said "religion is the opium of the people".
- Communism failed because it went against your natural instincts,
- They took Allah away from the society.
They turned the entire population into slaves, working in factories as slaves to the state.
- This is why it was bautil, and Allah said:
..... Surely! Bātil is ever bound to vanish." (Al-Isra 17:81)
Falsehood by nature is a vanishing thing.
-the straw that broke the back of communism was Afghanistan.
Allah declared war on them.
'Whosoever acts with enmity towards a Friend of Mine, I will indeed declare war against him"
[Hadith Qudsi: Bukhari]
The mujahideen liberated over 400 million people,
- The Russians left Afghanistan humiliated.
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Verily Allah ta’ala has said: ‘Whosoever shows enmity to a wali (friend) of Mine, then I have declared war against him. And My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved to Me than the religious duties I have obligated upon him. And My servant continues to draw near to me with nafil (supererogatory) deeds until I Love him. When I Love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, and his sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him; and were he to seek refuge with Me, I would surely grant him refuge.’" [Al-Bukhari.]
They saw that communism was nothing but a human folly.
- Any ideology that goes against human instincts, It shall FAIL.
..... Surely! Bātil is ever bound to vanish." (Al-Isra 17:81)
Islam will never fail, it is the fastest growing religion in the world today.
- It is your natural instinct to believe in One God,
- to be attracted to the opposite sex,
- to love wealth and trading,
