Introduction

The Muslim world is entirely disconnected from its own historical past, and today’s Muslims are totally ignorant of one another; Islamic Ages’ History, Sciences, Intuition, Spirituality, Mysticism, Literature, Wisdom, Philosophy, Arts, Architecture, Cosmology and World Conceptualization are absolutely unknown to school children of Muslim countries and definitely absent from their manuals.

Across all the countries of the Islamic world there is not one all-encompassing encyclopedia to duly cover and properly present the contents of the aforementioned Historical Islamic Heritage. Publishing houses, newspapers, magazines, reviews, radio programs, TV channels, and Internet portals are fully devoid of the subjects that constitute the essence of the Cultural and Spiritual Identity of all Muslims.

Historical, literary and philosophical texts of the Islamic Ages’ greatest historians, philosophers, authors, scholars and poets are either difficult to find or not translated in other languages so that Muslims from all over the world can access them. No driving force makes it necessary for Muslims to delve into their own common heritage (that stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from Siberia to Mozambique). Yet, this heritage is the only authentic form of Islamic Civilization that is saved down to our days – in striking contradiction with today’s ignorant sheikhs, idiotic imams, uneducated muftis, pseudo-theological schools, and their pseudo-doctrines and nonsensical, mostly heretic dogmas.

Instead of this,

a) fake theological dogmas (such as Political Islam or Wahhabism),

b) heretic theological systems (like those of Ahmed ibn Hanbal, Ahmed ibn Taimiyya and Muhammad Abdelwahhab),

c) grave and erroneous ideologization of historical past (by those who are totally ignorant of that past),

d) catastrophic politicization of misunderstood parts of the Historical Islamic Heritage (by those who aberrantly represent that heritage), and

e) locally adopted Western, racist, colonial, Orientalist premeditated distortion of World History (therefore involving extensive falsification of the History of Islamic Civilization and nefarious concealment of the overwhelming impact of the Ancient Oriental Civilizations on the formation of both, the Western and the Islamic, worlds) have condemned Muslims in Asia, Africa and Europe to identity loss, obscurantism, ignorance, misery and abject destitution.

—————————————————————————

The only convicted criminal for the above described situation is the Colonial West in its totality: England, France, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Holland, Belgium, USA, Spain, Portugal and their dependencies. By means of military, economic, political, educational, academic, artistic, intellectual, cultural and religious interference, the aforementioned tyrannical, barbarian and inhuman states have done their best to incessantly enforce the above noted conditions that help only prolong mutual ignorance, educational darkness, identitarian crisis, spiritual-religious sterilization, economic withering, political discord and military conflict among all Muslim nations.

Irrespective of the nonsensical pretensions of the racist, colonial, criminal academies and universities of the Western countries, there are no Western universal values and consequently neither Asia nor Africa need any of them. The Muslims have had their own values that date back to the first millennium CE, being the depository of the Ancient Oriental universal values that had been extensively spelled out in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Anatolia, Iran, Central Asia, China and South Asia long before the marginal realms of Greece and Rome came to surface. The same is also valid for all Asiatics and Africans who are adepts of other religions, belonging to other civilizations.

In fact, the so-called Western universal values are not Western, simply because the West does not exist; the Modern Western world, as the foremost expression of cruelty, hatred, tyranny, barbarism and monstrosity, is only a vicious distortion of the Orient.

Today’s West is the world’s Sick Man, who pretends to be Healthy whereas at the same time he accuses the Healthy Man as Sick!

Representing the most excruciating form of putrefaction across World History, the paranoid Western pseudo-academia and bogus-intellectuals designate as “universal” their mental, intellectual and cultural contamination, thus intentionally infecting the rest of the world.

The so-called Western values are merely the parameters of their morbidness, the elements of their lawlessness, the dimensions of their evilness, and the epitome of their abhorrence of the “Other” – as made evident

a) in the massacres of Aztecs, Incas and other indigenous nations,

b) in the outrage of the Jesuit reductions,

c) in the criminality of the Scramble for Africa,

d) in the malignancy of the Opium Wars, and

e) in the perfidy and savagery by which the English and the French demolished the Ottoman, Iranian, Mughal and Chinese Empires that are now being reconstituted.

To reclaim their Historical Islamic Heritage, Muslims all over the world must reconnect with one another, thus totally disregarding, disrespecting and rejecting all things Western. The present paper is a suggestion as to just how Muslims can be comprehensively reconnected with one another and in the process eliminate all negative elements and parameters of their societies which are due to Western infiltration, propaganda and dictatorial imposition.

The present proposal was composed in early 2012, after several discussions that I had in Abu Dhabi (where I was living at the time) with friends originating from various Asiatic, African and European Muslim countries. It consists in the establishment of an international NGO or Foundation, which will undertake the enormous task of bridging the gap among Muslims,

a) rewriting historical, literary, geographical and other manuals,

b) making known the achievements of a Muslim nation to another Muslim nation and vice versa,

c) promoting vast bilateral exchanges among all Muslim countries,

d) materializing bilingual editions of reciprocally unknown authors,

e) organizing seminars and other activities to bring Muslims from all countries close to one another, and

f) popularizing the historical heritage of one Muslim nation among another – and vice versa.

The proposal is briefly outlined (less than 1500 words) and several sections only indicated; it serves for further brainstorming and discussion among educated and cultured Muslims, who have not fallen victims of Western propaganda, materialism, evolutionism, and consumerism. The present introduction was written on 20th July 2020 in Luxor, Thebes of Upper Egypt.

The true, historical Islam remains unknown to today’s Muslims because of their criminal governments that are exclusively made of stooges of the Western colonial gangsters; the following pictures offer only a minimal idea of what today’s Muslims are unaware, although they are the only heirs.
