They did not pronounce “La Ilaha Illa Allah” and just did rituals of worship (Salat, Hajj, Siam, Zakat) and then went back to the system of their forefathers as they were doing before in their daily life. No, they did not. That was not Islam for them. They did follow every system their messenger taught them.
Those who believed in Allah as their Rabb, Allahu Akbar!
Then why they were called Mushrik?
Only because they asked help through somebody or something else (that’s how entire system of Idolatry took roots, the basic was that they thought they could not ask Allah directly because they are sinful and ‘Allah’ to them was so ‘holy’, therefore they introduced idol as a mediator between them and Allah and just for that reason they are called Mushrik.)
Then why they called ‘Jahil Arabs’?
Because they had a system of life made by themselves or by their forefathers (the root causes were actually the absence of a system from their Rabb. Popularly in the Muslim minds, the reason of them being called ‘Jahil’ was because they buried their daughters alive and their tribal bonding above justice and morality and their adultery but the Muslim minds today fail to understand that it was a SYSTEM of the society, they or their forefathers developed, thought it was better for them, it surely worked for them at least for those who made it). So, basically, the reason they were called ‘Jahil’ was nothing other than having a SYSTEM they had in absence of a guidance from their Rabb, Allah to whom they believed in.
how to dress, what not to dress
how to marry, when to marry, who to marry?
how to raise their children, how to go out, how to educate their children, when to bring children home, when not to take children out,
how to maintain the family, how to maintain modesty, how to talk, how to greet others
how to associate with the neighbours, how to maintain social relations, who to maintain the relation with, who to keep away from,
how to sale, how to trade, how to do business,
how to build a state, how to do politics, how to elect their ruler
What not in the life of those Quraish were taught. So, they changed their forefather’s system to the system of their Rabb and then only after that they called themselves Muslims. Once they pronounce “La Ilaha Illa Allah” they did not follow the system, rules of the society they used to do which they learned from their culture form their forefathers, they did everything according to what their Rasul taught them.
They did not pronounce “La Ilaha Illa Allah” and just did rituals of worship (Salat, Hajj, Fasting, Zakat) and then went back to the system of their forefathers as they were doing before in their daily life. They just did not come to Islam and limited themselves knowing which food is halal which is not, they just did not limit themselves knowing that having a beard for men and hijab for women is the next thing to do and then went to their previous lifestyle. No. they did not. That was not Islam for them. They did follow every system their messenger taught them.
This is the premise of this blog. Curing corrupt minds. Helping Muslim to understand Tawheed. Helping Muslim to submit to their Rabb entirely, whole-heartedly. May Allah accept from us. Ameen.
