Remarks: How many times have you heard this; Islam just needs a reform? Well, why does it need reform?
Well, then it would be nicer without that jihad business. So, let’s just reform it.
It is impossible to reform Islam. It’s almost like a mathematical business.
But Christianity and Judaism were reformed, therefore Islam can be reformed. Well, not really.
Let’s say that you’re going to reform Islam by picking out the good and dropping what is bad, and you’re the one deciding what is good and bad.
Well, this Islam you’re going to pick and choose from, what is it? It’s the Quran, Sira, and Hadith, so therefore if you’re going to reform Islam, you have to reform the Quran, the Sira, or the Hadith.
Let’s start with the Quran. What does it say about itself?
Quran 3:7, “No one knows the true interpretation except Allah,” that’s the interpretation of the Quran, “but those firm in knowledge say, “we believe in it, all of it is from our Lord.“
So, since every verse comes from Allah, who are you to pick and choose amongst it?
Here’s an example that you don’t even know how to pick and choose anyway.
Quran 2:216, “Fighting is prescribed for you, and you dislike it. “But it is possible that you dislike a thing “which is good for you and that you love a thing “which is bad for you.“
So, therefore, you the person picking and choosing, Allah says you don’t know how to pick and choose anyway. “This is a book whose verses are perfect.” [Quran 11:1.] So, every verse is perfect, who are you to say they’re not?
Quran 5:3. “This day I perfected for you your religion “and completed my favour upon you “and have approved for you Islam as a religion.“
Its religion is perfect.
That includes the Quran and Sunna. What are you going to do about that? How do you reform perfection? Look, Islam is perfect in its entirety and each individual part. Every verse, every sentence, every Hadith is perfect.
Muhammad is a perfect model for human life. There are 91 verses in the Quran which say so. So, therefore, his Sunna is perfection. There’s not good Sunna and bad Sunna. It’s all Allah’s perfection.
But let’s say you’re so brilliant that you’re smarter than Allah, and you’re smarter than Muhammad, and you come up with this brilliant plan for reformation. So, what, who do you go to?
There’s no authoritative body to approve or disprove. You can’t go to Al-Azhar because they don’t have any real authority. They’re just a group of scholars issuing opinions.
There is no central body that can issue changes in Islam, so your brilliant reformation plan doesn’t have anywhere to go, no one cares.
Now look, you say we need to reform Islam because it will make Islam whatever we mean by this, nice. So, the part you want to remove is jihad.
• In Mecca Quran, there is no jihad
• In the Medina in Quran, 24% of it is about jihad.
• In Bukhari’s Hadith, 21% is about jihad.
• In the Sira 67% or 2/3 is about jihad.
This is not a verse or two, this is a systemic problem. It is a doctrine that you need to change, and you can’t change it with a sentence or a verse or two. Islam is not what a Muslim says, it’s what Muhammad says.
So, therefore, you can’t go to ask some Muslim, well here’s what I think a reformation would be, and he would go, oh I think you’re right.
There’s 1 1/2 billion Muslims, so which one are you going to ask for to approve of your plan for reformation? Whereas when we quote Muhammad, it is objective.
Now look, we’ve all met nice pleasant Muslims, and so we say well look, if Muslims are nice, there is a nice Islam they’re following. No, they’re not following all of Islam.
They’re just practising the Islam that’s found in Mecca, not in Medina. Nice Muslims cannot condemn or say Medina is wrong, they just don’t practice it. But that’s not reforming, it’s just not doing what it says.
Now remember this too, Muhammad was a failure until he came up with jihad. His career, 13 years in Mecca preaching the religion of Islam, no jihad, but only 150 followers.
About 10 a year. Then when he turned to jihad and politics, he was an overwhelming success…
