The intellectual invasion
The intellectual invasion is a modern term refers to the efforts that are exerted by a nation to capture another nation or to influence it to go in a specific direction.
Q1: In your opinion, what is meant by the intellectual invasion?
A: the intellectual invasion is a modern term refers to the efforts that are exerted by a nation to capture another nation or to influence it to go in a specific direction. It is more dangerous than the military invasion, because it is a secret invasion infiltrates secretly in the heart of the nation. Hence, the invaded nation does not notice it or be ready for combating it, till it is defeated. The invaded nation turns to suffer from the lack of its own thought and sense; it desires what its enemy wants it to desire, and hates what its enemy wants it to hate. The intellectual invasion is a dangerous disease destroys the nation and eliminates its character and power. The nation that is invaded by such a disease does not feel or know what is happening to it, hence telling it what occurs is difficult and guiding it to the right path is not easy.
Q2: Is Arab generally, and the kingdom of Saudi Arabia specifically, facing that kind of invasion?
A: yes, all Muslims (including Arab) are facing dangerous intellectual invasion from the nations of the east and the nations of the west. The most dangerous of these intellectual invasions are:
· The crusader invasion.
· The Jewish invasion.
· The Atheist communist invasion.
As for the crusader invasion; it does its best. When Salahul-Deen defeated the invader crusaders who invaded Muslim countries with the armies, they realized that normal wars could achieve just temporary victories. So, they searched for the best alternative. After making studies and holding conferences they decided that the best alternative is to intellectually invade Muslims’ youth and children, because having the mind and heart is valuable than having the land. The Muslim whose thought is not polluted does not accept to see the disbeliever rules his country, and he does his best to get him out his country, even if the cost was his life and properties. This is what happened after the great victories over the invading crusader armies. On the other hand, the Muslim that is invaded in his heart and mind does not see any dangerous in the presence of the crusaders or the like in his own country; rather he might think that this is good and facilitates the development and progress. The crusaders took the intellectual invasion as an alternative to the military invasion, because it is stronger and lives longer; why should they prepare armies and spend money while there are Muslims who service them intentionally or unintentionally and with something in return or for free?! Therefore, they rarely fight Muslims openly with the armies and power; they do this in emergencies only (e.g. the case of invading Uganda and Pakistan), or when it is necessary to establish foundations for the intellectual invasion (e.g. the case of invading Egypt, Syria, Iraq and other countries before the independence).
As for the Jewish invasion; it is the same, because the Jews do not waste any effort that may lead to destroying Muslims’ manners and creed. There are ambitions for the Jews in Muslim and non-Muslim countries, and they have plans; some of which are achieved and others are under achieving. As they fought Muslims with power and armies and captured parts of their lands, they also fight their thoughts and creeds; so, they are propagating in Muslim countries for wicked concepts and ideas such as Freemason, Qadianism, Bahaism, Tiganism and the like. They achieve their purposes and goals by the help of the Christians and others.
As for the atheist communist invasion; it infiltrates in Muslim countries, nowadays, like fire. This is a result of Muslims majority’s weakness of belief, ignorance and not having the right breeding. The communist parties in Russia, China and other countries gained the ability of catching the weak believers to make them centers of spreading atheism and communism in their countries. They promise to facilitate to those weak believers achieving the highest positions, then after holding them well, they control them, punish them by each other and shed the blood of who opponents or stops serving them. They continued doing so till they made groups of people shape torture to their nations and people. The communists’ parties used these people to disunite Muslims, and to make them soldiers to the Satan with the help of the Christian and Jews. They are one hand against the Muslims and consider Islam their most dangerous enemy. So, even if they appeared to be different between themselves, we see them cooperate against Muslims. And it is Allah almighty Whose help can be sought, He (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).
Q3: What are the means of the west for propagating its ideas?
A: the means that are used by the west for propagating its ideas are numerous, they include:
1- Trying to invade Muslims’ minds and planting the western concepts in them to think that the western way is the best way in everything; whether it is a religion, language, manners, habits or methods.
2- Caring for many Muslims in each country and taking care of their breeding. And then, when they become saturated with the western ideas and return to their countries; they praise and compliment them till they gain the exalted positions in their countries. Hence they in return propagate to the western concepts and establish educational institution similar in its style to the western institutions or subordinate to them.
3- Encouraging learning the western languages in Muslim countries and threatening the Arabic language (the language of the Holy Quran and worship). They also encourage the wicked movements that seek to weaken the Arabic language in Muslim countries; such as the movements that call for using the slang language, performing studies for developing the Arabic grammar and ruining it, and praising what is called folklores and national heritage.
4- Building western universities, missionary schools, nursery schools and hospitals in Muslim countries and making them centers for their evil intentions. They incite the rich classes to teach their children in these schools, and they help them later in gaining the positions of leadership and the high jobs to help their masters in achieving their goals in Muslims countries.
5- Trying to control the policy of designing education’s curriculums in Muslim countries, whether directly such as what happened when the Christian priest, Dunlop, did this by himself, or indirectly through the students who graduated from the schools of Dunlop and became enemies to their nations and did all their best to turn education to be secular; not based on believing in Allah and His messenger, rather it leads to atheism and calls for the corruption.
6- Many Christian and Jews people had studied Islam and Arabic, compiled books in them and became deans in the universities till they managed making intellectual Fitna between the educated Muslims through the misconceptions that they teach their students or put in their books which are propagated in the Muslim countries. Some of these books became resources for the authors and researchers who write in intellectual or historical subjects. There are many Muslims learned from these orientalists and roused dangerous Fetan with the help of the praise and admire and the positions that they occupy in the educational institution and in the leadership in general. They completed what their masters had begun and could not complete by themselves. The students achieved what their masters could not achieve because they (the students) are considered Muslims live in Muslims’ countries and talk in Muslims’ languages.
7- Sending huge numbers of missionaries to convert Muslims to Christianity. They do this on studied bases and by thousands of men and a lot of money “They intend to put out the Light of Allâh (i.e. the Religion of Islâm, this Qur’ân, and the Prophet Muhammad Peace be upon him) with their mouths. But Allâh will bring His Light to perfection even though the disbelievers hate (it)” [As-Saff 61:8]
Transliteration: Yureedoona liyutfioo noora Allahi biafwahihim waAllahu mutimmu noorihi walaw kariha alkafiroona
While the efforts of the missionaries are directed to the common people, the efforts of the orientalists are directed to the educated people as we mentioned earlier. They both bear great difficulties in their work in the African countries and in the remote Muslim countries in East Asia and other places. Then, they hold conferences from time to time for the purposes of following up and evaluation. They held a conference in Cairo 1906, in Edinburg 1910, in Likno 1911, and in Jerusalem 1935 twice; and they continue holding conferences. So glorified be He and exalted above all that they associate with Him, and in Whose Hands is the dominion of all things.
8- Propagating for ruining the Muslim community and inciting the woman to desert her natural rule in life and go behind the limits that are ordained by Allah. They call for this by various ways and different methods till women would be mixed with men and engaged in the works of them. They do this to ruin the Muslim community and combat its chastity through falsely claiming that Islam mistreated the woman while she has the right of so and so; they want to get women out their houses and lead them to where they are planning. They call for this while Allah’s limits and orders are clear and direct in the Holy Quran and the sayings of the prophet peace be upon him. Allah almighty says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” [Al-Ahzab 33:59]
Transliteration: Ya ayyuha alnnabiyyu qul liazwajika wabanatika wanisai almumineena yudneena AAalayhinna min jalabeebihinna thalika adna an yuAArafna fala yuthayna wakana Allahu ghafooran raheeman
and He almighty says: “and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons,” [An-Nur 24:31]
Transliteration: walyadribna bikhumurihinna AAala juyoobihinna wala yubdeena zeenatahunna illa libuAAoolatihinna aw abaihinna aw abai buAAoolatihinna aw abnaihinna aw abnai buAAoolatihinna
And He says: “And when you ask [his wives] for something, ask them from behind a partition. That is purer for your hearts and their hearts.” [Al-Ahzab 33:53]
Transliteration: waitha saaltumoohunna mataAAan faisaloohunna min warai hijabin thalikum atharu liquloobikum waquloobihinna
And He says: “And abide in your houses and do not display yourselves as [was] the display of the former times of ignorance.” [Al-Ahzab 33:33]
Transliteration: Waqarna fee buyootikunna wala tabarrajna tabarruja aljahiliyyati aloola
The prophet peace be upon him said: “Beware of getting, into the houses and meeting women (in seclusion).” A person from the Ansar said: “Allah's Messenger, what about husband's brother?”, whereupon the prophet peace be upon him said: “Husband's brother is like death.”
And he also said: “Let not a man become in seclusion with a woman, because the Satan would be their third.”
9- Building the churches and temples in Muslim countries and spending a lot of money in decorating them and making them prominent in the best places and the largest squares.
10- Launching broadcasts call for Christianity and praise its aims and mislead the naive Muslims who did not understand Islam or learn enough information about it. This occurs more in Africa and is accompanied by publishing and distributing the bible in the hotels and sending (to the Muslims) leaflets calling for Christianity.
These are some of the methods that are adopted nowadays by the enemies of Islam to invade Muslims intellectually and replace their righteous thoughts with strange eastern or western thoughts. They exert great efforts, spend a lot of money and send thousands of soldiers. They do all of these things to just make Muslims desert Islam, even if they did not convert after that to the Christianity, Judaism or Marxism. They think that the great challenge is getting Muslims out of Islam, then everything comes later is easy. However, we say that Allah would befall them because they are evil-doers and Allah does not set right the work of the evil-doers.
Allah almighty says: “they were plotting and Allâh too was plotting; and Allah is the Best of those who plot” [Al-Anfal :30]
Transliteration: wayamkuroona wayamkuru Allahu waAllahu khayru almakireena
and He almighty says: “Indeed, they are planning a plan, (15) But I am planning a plan. (16) So allow time for the disbelievers. Leave them awhile.” [At-Tariq :15-17]
Transliteration: Innahum yakeedoona kaydan (15) Waakeedu kaydan (16) Famahhili alkafireena amhilhum ruwaydan
Muslims need to think and consider the best way for fighting these plans. Moreover, they should acquire the necessary knowledge and awareness that make them able to understand the plans of their enemies and the way of destroying it. This would never be achieved without seeking help from Allah, abiding to His guidance, returning to him, seeking His forgiveness, remembering His guidance in everything especially the relationship between the believers and disbelievers, understanding Surrat Al-Kafirun, and understanding His saying: “And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion.” [Al-Baqarah 2:120]
Transliteration: Walan tarda AAanka alyahoodu wala alnnasara hatta tattabiAAa millatahum
And His saying: “And they will continue to fight you until they turn you back from your religion if they are able.” [Al-Baqarah 2:217]
Transliteration: wala yazaloona yuqatiloonakum hatta yaruddookum AAan deenikum ini istataAAoo
I invoke Allah almighty to facilitate for this Ummah (nation) its affairs in the right way, protect it from the plots of its enemies and provide it with the righteousness in word and deed, to have the honour, power and glory that Allah has wanted to it. Indeed, He is the best invoked One.
And Allah’s prayers and peace be upon our prophet, Muhammad, and his family and company.
