Dhalika - that is it!
By Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir as-Sufi
The first rule, when under attack from many quarters, is to strengthen the centre. In order to do this, our first duty is to reject utterly the persistent mantra of the USA and European media which defines the Iraqi conflict as Sectarian. There cannot be two sects of the Deen al-Haqq. There is Islam, and it is One Nation. Shi‘ism is another religion. We must put clear blue water between us, the Muslims, and them, the Shi‘a. Once that is clear in our actions and discourse, we simply must see that our differences do not separate us, and remember we have been told by the Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, that they are a mercy for us. It is important that our Community unifies itself not psychologically but in practical terms. The key to this unification, therefore, has to manifest in our support and assured protection of King Abdullah of Arabia.
The world is a very different place from the one in which Roosevelt, a great World War over, knew he had to stop over to visit the king of Saudi Arabia. Any critic of Arabia would be foolish to imagine, after all that has happened since the establishment of Aramco, that the rulers of the country are unaware that geopolitically they have one enemy, the USA, and at the same time, also geopolitically, yet another enemy, the Shi‘a hegemony which has effectively conquered the whole of the Middle East. King Abdullah is a wise man, and as a ruler he is entitled to make concordance with whatever powers he considers necessary. The Bush regime declares others evil, implying that they are good, as a result the whole world now laughs at them in their military dilemma. The Americans are over-stretched, over-taxed, and over-fed. King Abdullah can summon an army from the four corners of the world.
The first protection of the King has to be a recognition that any attempt to introduce the suave discourse of democracy into the Kingdom must be interpreted as an overt sabotage on the Muslim rulership of Arabia. The next protection of the King is dependent on his perception, one he is well able to make, that the Age of Politics is effectively over and that, this being the case, the OIC can neither help nor harm. What would be a protection for this Muslim monarchy would be to transform the OIC into a Palace of Muslim Trade and Commerce. This would allow a forum for the strengthening of Muslim wealth everywhere, a wealth which has been shattered into a thousand poverties by the Nation-State system. Such a commercial hub should have a basic form which would allow all Muslim traders to trade together with other Muslims, rather than strengthening the kuffar, while operating under the current financial system which we all know, participate in and recognise. The second tier of operations should allow the Centre to be an arena where modules and parameters of modern commerce should be practised step by step more inside the modalities of the Islamic trade of our common Fiqh. This of course would entail at a certain point the monarchy issuing an Islamic currency based on the Golden Dinar and the Silver Dirham.
At this time of Hajj we thank Allah the Exalted that it is being celebrated. We thank Allah that it is protected. We thank Allah that its rites are overseen by a Muslim ruler. As we recite the following Ayats we also ask Allah, glory be to Him, to make them the Du‘a of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, in order that Allah sustain him as the Protector of the Haramayn.
