Islam in Crisis: Adopting an Introspective Approach

Picture is showing islam is in crisis

French President Emanuel Macron is the Islamophobic leader of France. He makes no secret of his hatred towards Islam and the Muslims. He objects to Islamic culture and traditions to the core. Most of his claims about this religion are groundless. But we should not blind our eyes to the opponents’ accusations. Macron’s accusations, though he is a fierce critic, do hold some truth such as the one about Islam being in crisis. Instead of passing derogatory remarks in return, the Muslims should have analyzed the situation. They should have focused on the comment he made. But they did not as humans don’t reason when they are angry. But the statement “Islam is in crisis around the world” seems true when we try to understand its predicaments in the age of logic and reason. Yes, Islam is a crisis-ridden religion in the modern age. The religious elite have been doing away with open-minded research against and critical analysis of many religious assumptions for centuries. Questioning great Imams or scholars of past and present is considered taboo, or I must say heretical. As a result, the Ummah faces innumerable problems nowadays. Whenever someone tries to solve these problems with reason and logic, the casual criticism that arises is that in the past no one thought this way and no one went against that certain great scholar’s opinion so how come this reformer does that? But this criticism is self-destructive. No one thought different from objectionable rulings of great scholarship of the past because it was not allowed then as it is prohibited now. This is an inherent defect of the religious education system. One sect of Sunni Muslims in Islam still firmly believes that the Earth is stationary and static. They write books and hold debates on this topic. They don’t like the fact that science has questioned their great scholar’s (of the past) opinion with undeniable and tangible proofs. Their blind following has reached to a point that if someone took them outside of the earth and showed them from space, they would close their eyes instead of seeing the truth. The result of this blind following is that Islam has become a reactionary and regressive religion that abhors development. Many Muslims have the talent to move forward and set their fellow Muslims on the course that leads to development, but the fanatic and ignorant religious leaders are holding them back. In consequence, they cannot find a chance to fully tap their potential. This is Undoubtedly a state of crisis. And it is definitely a truth that “Islam is in crisis around the world.”
