- Now, divine laws affecting men are all for their good and envisage the interests (of men). This is attested by the religious law. Bad laws, on the other hand, all result from stupidity and from Satan, in opposition to the predestination and power of God. He makes both good and evil and predetermines them, for there is no maker except Him … After one knows the principles of jurisprudence, one can enjoy, as its result, the knowledge of the divine laws that govern the actions of all responsible Muslims. This is jurisprudence… whatever actions you perform and conversations you have should be in accordance with the Shari’ah (Divine law), because whatever the knowledge and actions of [God’s] creations not in accordance with the Shari’ah (Divine law), are clearly misguided and keep them (i.e. creations/human beings primarily) away from the truth. [i] Ibn Khaldun
The Three Principles of Spiritual Determinism
or Pillars of Spiritual Law
Obtaining a divorce from the truth is an endemic proceeding in which man is the litigant and Satan the solicitor. On the day of Mohammad’s entry to Madinah, the Prophet gave a resounding speech containing several important principles; three of which are crucial determinants for the successful establishment of any Islamic polity and College of Islamic Science:
- Fear of God
- … ”My words cannot be changed nor am I indeed unjust to the slaves.” (Q 50:29) Therefore fear Him in this world and the world to come, in the seen and the unseen, since who fears Him, God grants him redemption for his sins and favors him with great reward. This person alone is highly successful. Fear of Allah saves man from His wrath, His punishment and anger. This will brighten the faces of people and elevate them on the Day of Judgment. Fear Allah, walk on the path of virtue and piety.
This principle, once established in the heart, is ground for all sober contemplations leading to truth and right action. It stands alone as the metaphysical rock upon which responsible decisions must be held forth in light of man’s ultimate accountability. Therefore, the Muslim is compelled to “walk on the path of virtue and piety” in ‘Fear of Allah’ in order to succeed in this life as well as the next.
- Obedience to God;
- Do not show any slackness in obedience to God. Allah has revealed the Book for your teaching and has made the right path clear for your guidance so that truth can be distinguished from falsehood. Just as Allah has shown you His favor, likewise you should obey Him in right earnest. Look upon His enemy as yours and exert your best for winning His favor. Allah has chosen you for Himself and has given you the name of Muslims. God has ordained that those who are to be destroyed will be swept away and those who are to survive, after the clear signs have come to them, would live with insight and on the strength of evidence.
This passage makes clear the right path for decision making, meaning the attentive and firm application of man’s will towards choosing what is good by means of correct moral discernment. This faculty actively segregates the beneficial from the harmful and is only acquired as the result of obedience, which demands assiduous attention to the acquisition of knowledge via diligent activities and avoidance of God’s enemies.
- Remembrance of God;
- No power is of any avail except the Power of Allah. Therefore, remember God as much as you can and live for the Hereafter. The man whose relation with God is based on sincerity, Allah will help Him against evil. None will be able to harm him [protection]. Allah’s command is supreme over the people [Authentic Authority]. But people cannot command God. Allah alone is Master of all men and men have no share in His lordship. Therefore, keep your relation with Allah on the right footing.
The establishment of this ‘right footing’ of remembrance in a person’s life consequently leads the spiritually sober individual to choose treasures in heaven rather than ‘goods and chattels of deception’. Yet this does not imply that chanting like Buddhist monks is sufficient practice as such activity falls short of the goal. Nevertheless, those who sincerely remember Allah live their lives for the Hereafter and in so doing they consequently discipline themselves to relentlessly choose what is ultimately and absolutely beneficial and moral in the ‘here and now’. Were Muslims in truth so actively compliant then ‘no harm’ would come to them save for impediments that are quickly balanced by the rewards that greet those who meet life’s trials successfully.
I will establish that most of what Muslims experience at the hands of God’s enemies is judgment rather than trial. This negative estate represents inverse consequences that follow the course of physical and metaphysical entropy. The laws which govern this degradation are default determinants of spiritual laws that inductively derive from the three principles just presented. But before discussing these estates of demerit, required contingencies that attend the divine grace of what is beneficial should be presented.
Wisdom is the specific knowledge of God that engenders the understanding of purpose. Man’s discernment of right or wrong, good or evil, harm or benefit in the thing or creature that is ‘scientifically’ observed, devised, socially structured or physically manufactured is contingent on the acquisition of wisdom. Hence, moral idiocy embraces secularism by Islamic standards as it compartmentalizes the remembrance of God thus making it a form of forgetfulness. This follows metaphysical inebriations that attend the neglect of spiritual laws since positive consequence requires moral action? Inherent with the faculty of wisdom that ‘begins with the Fear and Reverence of God is the knowledge of our accountability and purpose in this world and in the world to come — “the Meeting with Us” as oft written in Al-Qur’an.
It is within this moral sphere of reflection and activity that the sciences be they hard, soft, political or otherwise lack wisdom. And though virtue is oft aired in theatres of pomp and circumstance, it is rarely applied consequently as justice in political, economic and social commerce. This is because leadership autonomously defaults towards reprobation when the three principles described above are not consciously activated and maintained. This activation and maintenance is not an individual task but a collective responsibility. Hence, when leaders, educators, advisors and alim et alia ‘sell the purpose of religion’ to unrighteous benefactors — to whom they then owe their obedience — collective responsibility is abandoned and the default status of spiritual law immediately begins to fog the entire political and social realm.
This estate does not reflect fear or reverence for the three principles cited and realms that preach but do not practice these principles reflect a collective form of hypocrisy.
- What makes it so plausible to assume that hypocrisy is the vice of vices is that integrity can indeed exist under the cover of all other vices except this one. Only crime and the criminal, it is true, confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the hypocrite is really rotten to the core: Hannah Arendt – Political philosopher
When integrity surrenders to such ‘rottenness’ it proceeds towards reprobation as a natural course of human events though outwardly things look otherwise until calamity strikes and all is lost, including reactionary reserve. It is very simple: righteous dominion is abandoned along with moral imperatives while the Rights of God are replaced by collective rituals that serve to cover communal pretense. Only those who withdraw in active protest are exempt from the natural consequences that follow the group’s gradual reprobation. Those who protest and remain within the group are marginalized and repressed as per customary sub-human response. Although Muslims have been instructed to flee such oppression, the sad fact is that many are oppressors, from the palace to village.
Reprobation is God’s abandonment of man to his own devices. It happens in stages until the heart is completely given over to overt wickedness of worse, hypocrisy as habit. Many nations have and are now following this pattern of inevitable behavior.
Righteous dominion is contingent on activating and maintaining the moral Imperatives. What you are about to read is an examination of the process of their abandonment and the absurdity of denying the fact. This is a kind of morbidity and mortality report utilizing the IOK and Islamic Science movements as tip-of-the-iceberg pathological indicators whereby many strain at gnats to justify elephants they have already swallowed. Here is an example of that effort: 
- Yet they have also provided important for a for the Administration’s articulation of its vision of “right” Islam: as a “balanced, moderate and modernizing force that would not impede foreign investment, that was accepting of certain secular Western forms and that has taken account of current political realities in the Muslim and outside world.” In the PM’s view, “true” dakwah, unlike “the wrong interpretation of Islam” is distinguished by its reason, logic and sound argument. A real resurgence of Islam needed a solid foundation of contemporary ideas and analysis derived from the Quran and Sunnah, which could only emerge if there was “true” ‘ijtihad.
You might imagine my chuckle as I read this because it is the position Muslims leaders have taken for quite some time, especially the part about the ‘wrong interpretation of Islam’. To hear the leader of a profoundly corrupt political party whose Minister of Religion is not a qari’ espouse such sublime thoughts is, well … as I’ve already explained.
So much for the “right” approach to Islam as long as authentic mujtahids and qari don’t sit on dais of power and practice the authentic ‘ijtihad that would impeach two-thirds of the party. Therefore, let substitutes be suitably attired in correct cultural garb and given pulpits paid for by the State. Sounds Anglican to me — exactly what the enemies of Islam desire. Don’t think so? Let’s see:
- … that even while it was promoting greater values in society, this was “contradicted” by its pursuit of an intensive pace of economic growth and development that continues fundamentally to be based on secular Western models and to be over-concerned with material acquisition.
Take a mortgage from one of these “Islamic Banks” and compare your final costs to a loan from a non-Islamic Bank and see how much costs you haven’t saved. My old friend, Haji Taufik in Kuching did exactly this with a Dakwah Project that required a mortgage and was absolutely furious (in my presence) when he counted the cost as 50% higher than that of a Chinese lender. I personally know one of the ‘Economic Hitmen’ sent to the country by a well known Boston firm responsible for a new IT development and capital city project. He reported in 2010 that after his firm received their portion of the pie for its extremely sophisticated planning, over the years greater than fifty percent of the tax funded project meant to benefit the people never materialized. The money disappeared into coffers of this more ‘correct’ interpretation of Islam. Naturally his superiors were disappointed because they had anticipated future takings.
As distinct from sophists[ii] and politically-correct impresarios of abstraction and Orwellian spin, it is clear that only the pragmatic application of monotheist wisdom via the strong arm of hisbah qualifies a people as fully Islamic. In addition, as knowledge is morally neutral until man willfully acts on it in order to reap its reward, it is also clear that the term ‘Islamic’ does not qualify as a scientific adjective unless actions applied to knowledge are moral. Furthermore and to the contrary, inaction on moral imperatives represents an inverse corollary and as such qualifies the inaction as immoral. Therefore, moral ends cannot possibly be achieved by talking heads at Islamization conferences when rhetoricians and program pundits are underwritten by felons who hold the offices of hisbah at bay as they control the pulpits and await acceptable versions of “true” ijtihad.
To comprehend the indictment, one must remember that ‘Islam’ is not a term that applies to God but to man. It is a conditional term that infers obligations towards God, towards creation and towards each other. These duties are what I refer to as the ‘Rights of God’ because it is He, the Almighty, who defined them and taught them to man as moral imperatives. Think of these contingencies in terms of an assignment owed to your teacher and you’ve got the everlasting point of the matter. Without meeting these indispensable conditions by willfully appllying moral action man neglects the ‘Rights of God’ even if he keeps religious ritual.
Pol Pot, Stalin and Peking’s Gang of Four killed respective majorities of traditional teachers then replaced them with suitably attired new ones as part of the Comintern’s grand twentieth Century experiment. David Rockefeller is on record for having acknowledged the success of the ‘social experiment’, especially in China. Silencing or relegating the sound traditions that define high culture to museums and text books is what Black Hats do, which is the real reason Malaysia’s Islam Hadari campaign suffered its stroke from pen of ‘One Malaysia’. In the craft of the West’s cultural war this is called neutralization, a process that has several degrees requiring a wide range of agents, from Penthouse to jackal’s den.
An analogy that describes the dilemma IOK confronts is that of a man who promises a woman at age twenty that he intends to marry her but sixty-five years later has not done so. In this case consider IOK proponents the groom and the office of Hisbah the bride or at least lady in waiting. Does this qualify as moral action, immoral inaction, as just plain idiocy, or as despicable hypocrisy: the non-deed of a man who claims Islam as his ‘complete’ religion? How much more impotent are those who claim to defend Islamic Science without annihilating the evil in their midst? But then again, perhaps they fail to perceive it. Black Hats and their Magi really are that good you know.
Hence, I posit that discussions on Islamic ‘anything’ whether Science, Islamization, ritual or food are indeed moot or at best academic in light of the principles described by Mohammad (pbh) and the endemic Muslim failure to impeach the evil in its midst and treat the enemies of God as their own. To the contrary, they embrace them; especially their money.
Indictment is insufficient as long as the evil remains institutionalized (ponerocracy) well enough to inhibit a people’s moral activity from natural fruition. Under such a condition the adjective ‘Islamic’ applies only in its passive and most debilitated sense. To pretend otherwise is pathetically stupid, yet this very denial is something many have succumbed to. It is a lack of collective resolve and inability to effectively confront the reality of one’s enemy — an inadequacy that Talmudic magi refer to as the psychological gelding of goy slaves. It is no small wonder they particularly hold Muslims in contempt as they tip dominoes in the Middle East. If these matters were not so, their advances into Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Muslim banking and shopping malls during the sixty-five year old Palestinian insult to Islam globally would not have been recorded in tandem with Professor Nasr’s so-called ‘Islamic Science’ — not to mention Religio Perennis.
During the Golden Age of Islamic civilization, one can definitively say that the fear of God, if not obedience and remembrance certainly played its part in intellectual pursuits by permeating the physical and metaphysical sciences. In a sense, we might justifiably call this period the ‘Age of Islamic Science’ but not because science needed Islamizing—although the term as such was never utilized until Nasr’s peculiar 1948 thesis. I say this because most rational contemplators within contemporary Muslim quarters were imbued with a moral force that freely and actively chose what was good and beneficial while seeking the highest dais of ethical endeavor and achievement.[iii] Sadly, and despite its coincidental rebirth since the term’s coinage, this is presently not so. Even the fear of God has given way to a lack of sincere obedience along with ritualized remembrances whereby men are browbeaten at Friday sermons and afterwards set free to continue sinning like Catholics. This is made evident by the horrific state of affairs, crimes, treasons, repetitive Muslim on Muslim slaughters, murders of women, sexual outrages, incest, Mujahidin pederasty and the common embarrassment of an ummah that lacks well informed Imams let alone Allah’s protection.
Without the faculty of discernment that depends upon institutions that are disciplined for obedience to Revelation and the guidance of inspiration, authentic intuition is blocked from reaching veiled hearts whereby man’s reasoning is bound towards the evil he either does not recognize or consequently misperceives as morally good. Both errors are antithetical to Allah’s formative word of creation and thereby activate inverse principles of entropy: a sort of metaphysical ‘reverse’ switch that is highly specific and individualized. Politically, this disintegration of the formative powers of creation becomes fixed on predetermined pathways rather than pliant trails amenable to remediation. It crystallizes towards fascism; or becomes monstrously deformed or morbidly tumescent as did Imperial Rome; or even catatonically vegetative as were Arab chauvinists during their pre-Colonial nap; or hyperactively Dionysian like Africa or India.
Within each degenerative cycle one finds all of these processes with one dominating the other depending upon predisposed temperaments of the peoples subsumed by the misguidance. Look at Italy and you visit Fascism in its Temple and Dionysius in its alleys. This crystallization cum dissolution process happens socially, physically, cognitively, psychologically, politically, religiously, metaphysically and intellectually until chaos is king of devolution.
Under the governance of any of these reversals, man can only accept (rationalize) the acceleration of morbidity as the inevitable result that follows misdeeds and misrule. He is quick to say: “that’s life” when in fact it is death after which for most the second death follows. Examples of this irrational apathy are the conundrum of nuclear waste control, Fukushima’s fallout and the extensive co-lateral damage of modern warfare and free-trade. Furthermore, athough the current devastation of an exploited environment and populace in the cause of Wall Street Profiteering has raised occupation levels of streets and minds, this reflects little more than lytic hyperactivity that accompanies carbuncles, allergies or anxiety ridden histrionics or irritable alimentary systems. It is symptomatic and neither curative nor palliative. It is not medicine.
To find the cure one must make an intimate companion of logic. It is wisdom that modern scientists and governors lack, and the basis for this insufficiency are ideologies that imply human autonomy as per “illuminations” sponsored by Jacobin pluralism and the promotion of abstract concepts like liberty, equality, unity and justice without providing definition. As it is clear that these same constructs gave license for Western elites to make Nation States ripe for world plunder, then the person of common sense who perceives the error will naturally ask: “Quidnam rector universitas est? Who then is Master of the Cosmos and how do I honor Him instead of the cronies and exalted felons of this Empire?”
I will now attempt to explain the how and why in answer to the already known Who.
- God will not grant authentic authority to the disobedient.
- And we bestowed on Moses evident authority. [An-Nisa, vs. 153]
There are two governments in the earth. These are apposite but opposing authorities and both are legitimate but only one is blessed with divine approbation and grace. When a person obeys God’s Commandments as related to us by His Prophets, or through the common sense (fitrah) of his own heart, God, as his King, grants him the grace of divinely approved validation with the vicegerency and dignity of as-Sakkinah. The existential validation of mankind’s maturity is something men require and strive for, and the various initiation rites of indigenous peoples present this inclination from time immemorial. This same fundamental need drives men of tyrannical ambition to excel and seek peace and security by means of an illicit hegemony that never grants it. Men of sloth, on the other hand, simply go through the motions of phallic wielding expecting validation to be handed to them. Both categories of waywardness easily regress to anger and rage (passive aggression included) when those under their hand do not endorse their authority. Others, when faced by frustration or repeated failure, turn to dissipation to ease the pain of inner-shame, while the pitiful turn to the ultimate indignation of suicide. In any event, men desire to govern; it is their nature—whether hovel or mansion matters not. However, only one type of man governs successfully and he is the obedient believer! The question is: ‘What is the measure of this success’?
The answer is as-Sakkinah. Such men are content in the now and certain of joyful tranquility in the hereafter. Their bearing is the unassuming and unassailable dignitas that brooks no offence. Men validated by Allah are those who strive to live to the fullest of their potential without fear of other men—not being the least concerned for the latter’s approbation unless it is a matter of righteous education. These are people of God’s blessed and authentic Authority. Others have submitted to the league of Satan’s illusion of validation. These have come to require medals, certificates, degrees, trophies, secret initiations and public accolades! This is a kingdom that cannot fail to express continual error, which is why the sunnah of Allah (SWT) is repeated throughout history.
Men in positions of authority without God’s validation (Guidance), whether in shanty or presidential palace, are persistently troubled by the lack of voluntary submission of persons under their hand whether wife and children, employees, political adherents or religious congregations. These become renegades from truth who only regress to tyranny or Wagnerian propaganda, and ultimately, megalomania to greater or lesser degrees depending on capacity.
To the contrary, obedient men of Godly authority carry the big stick of peaceful integrity. Such men are not troubled by the petty complaints of wives and children. Their subordinates and companions quickly fall into line as well—as I did whenever my 6th grade teacher silently walked into class! Disobedient men do not carry such a rod of authority because they haven’t put forth the effort of to get one. It’s a supra-natural grace gift that is simply not made available to them.
- The man who does not submit to God submits to misguidance. For him there is no divine help.
- Even if thou (O Muhammad) desirest their right guidance, still Allah assuredly will not guide him who misleadeth. Such have no helpers. [An-Nahl, vs. 37]
The Qur’an also says that Allah gives such men jinn for walliyah. Such a man or society receives no help from God, neither in this world or on the Day of Judgment. Temporal respite is the only grace made available to misguided men who attend the wayward companionship of such jinn. This hopeless situation is fraught with endless trouble. The exception to this rule is the compliant servant of a righteous man or communities submitted to such a man but who take no thought beyond their paycheck. These are shallow souls for the most part; decent people following commonly acceptable patterns of living who seek not the things or knowledge of God. They never or rarely pray sincerely with comprehension, or perhaps attend communal prayers with a sort of self-effacing embarrassment, often not knowing what they recite or why they should even bother. The world is filled with them and I pray the mercy of God will embrace their limited measure of will given to His cause. Nonetheless, complacent communities that do not rise to the command of preventing evil or migrating from its dominion will certainly not be spared the judgment of God’s Hammer should it fall on their earthly domain as it did recently in the voodoo haven of Haiti where 250,000 were killed in a few moments, or in the shaman saturated countries where a tsunami took an even greater toll.
- If man does not consciously attend to diligence, whatever he possesses and governs will decay prematurely.
We may also call this the ‘Law of Neglect’. This law is implicit in the thermodynamic principle of entropy or what appears to be a tendency towards disorder in the absence of divine formative guidance—or better said: towards the energy of chaos (unformed created potential). Here we have the call to work in order to maintain what we have acquired by God’s leave, whether it is material or spiritual in nature. Without man’s diligent maintenance (remembrance), the dynamic formative process fails its mission and purpose, and a marriage will sink just as easily as a poorly tended aircraft falls from the sky. This law is the inverse of the ‘Law of Husbandry’.
Neglect at any level of human activity fails to conserve economy and thus also to preserve effective utilization of resources. This results in waste; something Allah hates. This is an Adamic responsibility incumbent upon husbands and most especially leaders (Imams). When leaders fail this trial of vigilance, they become liable even for the crimes of their basest citizenry who otherwise would have had little opportunity or impetus to commit their trespasses.
Criminal activity, especially crimes of gross immorality and betrayal of the public trust is the direct result of lax husbandry (al’hisbah) and exposes the unredeemed nature of a nation’s government and people. This was made evident in the seerah of Madina. Husbandry is police work of the highest order. In Islam it is the enjoining of good and the forbidding of evil. It is the cloak of the Shepherd and calls for a passionately watchful eye and the dispassionate administration of swift justice:
- [Hisbah] is a broad principle of public law that entitles everyone to take a vigilant attitude towards corruption and abuse … The head of state and government officials are under an obligation … to discharge their trusts faithfully and justly: No servant of God to whom God has made custodian over others dies without this predicament: God will forbid the countenance of paradise to him if he has died while betraying those who were in his custody. [iv]
This applies to husbands who lie to wives and children as well. Betrayal of the public trust is now the Muslim norm as adopted from the globalist’s time honored elitist ethic. Unfortunately, a majority of men are loathe to be good shepherds and intolerant of righteous leadership. The sunnah of Allah SWT demonstrates this repeatedly. Allah SWT intended for Islam to alter this predisposition for recurring social disorder by perfectly designing the Islam of Prophet Mohammad (pbh) to do so. If not for the neglect of her Imams, we would not have witnessed the decay of Muslim civilization as an inevitable consequence. They have done and are doing injustice to themselves and their constituencies and refuse to repent. It really is as simple as that.
In light of this incontrovertible fact, there is little need for conferences on Good Governance unless it is to bring them to their knees by means of the truth. This is an authentic Alim’s duty. So… Where are they?
 Something many who practice a form of sorcery think they are doing, even Christians who have been taught to speak forth a matter in the name of Jesus.
 Islam In Malaysian Foreign Policy; Shanti Nair, p 116, 117.
 The enjoining of good and forbidding of evil in concert with the fear of Allah (SWT) balanced by the hope of His grace.
 B. Anderson described nations and nationalisms as “imagined communities.” See; B. Anderson, Imagined Communities: Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism. London : Verso, 1983
 One must bear in mind here that hypocrites—though they may seek and support each other’s company in secret—are in reality completely self-centered individuals who will betray confederates the moment it is advantageous.

[ii] According to Riane Eisler, in her seminal work, The Chalice and The Blade, the notion of dominance as a ‘natural social order’ has philosophical roots in the ‘might makes right’ ideology originated by the Sophists, a group of men who, with regard to morals and ethics, exemplified the thinking of political rulers throughout history from its beginnings in Ancient Greece.
Theirs was the first official lie-by-design-for-political-gain school of thought.
- Unlike other philosophers who contemplated the big ethical questions of life, the Sophists were primarily interested in the mechanics of how language can be used to control human behavior.
- Sophists were paid well to help rulers write speeches and win court cases through the use of twisted arguments and paradox (not unlike what is known in modern times as Orwellian doublethink).
- A ‘might makes right’ ideology posits that the right to rule over others is just, and earned, on the basis of proving one’s strength, wealth and, or armed might.
- Members of the ruling class competed with one another to attain what was considered the top prize (to do wrong and not get caught), and to avoid what was the worst humiliation (to be wronged and not get revenge).
- Fabricated lies, of the doublethink variety, were necessary for one very good reason, well understood by political rulers and sociology researchers alike — physical strength or violence alone do not work to oppress or dominate human beings.
