The Position of Justice Within the Cosmic Laws – Sa’ad Al-Faqih

TRANSCRIPT:

[Dr. Sa’ad Al-Faqih] The second thing is that in the recent era, particularly in the 19th century, these countries have justice. It’s true that there is corruption and decadence, disbelief, but there is justice. Justice, the law, there are many factors at play. One of these factors outweighs the others. The more there is justice, the more this outweighs the effect of corruption, and the effect of disbelief.

As Ibn Taymiyyah said, Allah grants victory to a just state even if it is unbelieving, and He defeats an unjust state even if it’s Muslim. So, justice is important. Justice is a very strong factor in the rise of nations, and their stability and strength. Justice is a very strange thing. Now, there are signs of a decline in justice in America and Europe. This rise of populism will constrain justice and now they are enacting laws and regulations that go against the concept of justice. The more this gains ground, they will eventually end up getting divine punishment. Wait and see. We don’t know the future, but, the signs of things happening in America in terms of populism taking hold as well as the harassment of people, at the expense of the true concept of justice, and the media war and the mutual accusations of treachery while sidelining the concept of justice, this will lead them to a dangerous collapse.

So, number one, they did experience problems. Secondly, what holds back punishment greatly is justice. If justice goes away, I don’t think it will take long before they are hit by punishment, and Allah knows best.

(FULL SESSION) Tough Questions on the Issue of Cosmic Laws – by Sa’ad Al-Faqih

TRANSCRIPT:

[Dr. Sa’ad Al-Faqih] Peace and Mercy of Allah be upon you. Praise Allah, Blessings and Peace be upon his Messenger. Welcome tonight, brothers.

We’re continuing with the series on Allah’s laws governing societies. This topic is worth spending time on, because it’s enlightening for us regarding many of the issues that we deal with individually and socially. On the level of society, the nation, on the global level as a whole. It explains history to us, and it explains many of the phenomena that are obscure to us. This is why it’s beneficial to talk about this, from several aspects. Tonight, we will answer a number of questions which we can say are disturbing and embarrassing on this topic. Because, those who read about Allah’s laws in society will notice certain issues that need to be clarified.

These questions come up constantly. People repeat them frequently. Some are repeated by most people, while others are repeated by people interested in this topic. Answering them is beneficial, and will complete one’s understanding of this issue, I.e., understanding Allah’s laws governing societies. I want to remind you that what is meant by Allah’s laws governing societies is these laws, these rules that govern societies, individuals like the laws of physics, chemistry, gravity, etc. Whoever does such thing, produces a particular result. Whoever avoids such thing, ends up with a particular result.

Well, a question, the first question, why aren’t the unbelievers afflicted by the calamities that affect us, such as death and expulsion, even though they have corruption, perversions, and they are unbelievers, after all, Allah has given them warnings of punishment because of their disbelief? Why don’t the unbelievers in Europe, America, China, Russia, Japan, suffer the calamities that we suffer, in terms of death and expulsion, even though they have corruption, perversions, disbelief, and impiety? Firstly, people throw this question around with short-sightedness as they only know the years that they’ve lived. They only know what they see on TV. They don’t read history, and they don’t know the nature of nations. Continue reading (FULL SESSION) Tough Questions on the Issue of Cosmic Laws – by Sa’ad Al-Faqih
