On the Day of Judgment, an interesting event will take place. Those who claimed righteousness here will realize that they were committing a grave wrong all along. They will bite their hands, as if to say “Damn it!! I wish I had obeyed the Holy Prophet swm instead of those misguided philosophers, politicians, professors, ministers, priests or so-called scholars”. They had held in high esteem personalities who were nothing but foolish disbelievers, not deserving to be followed or obeyed. Like a blind man following a lunatic.
And the Day the wrongdoer will bite on his hands [in regret] he will say, “Oh, I wish I had taken with the Messenger a way. Oh, woe to me! I wish I had not taken that one as a friend. (Al-Furqan, 25:27-28)
Some muslims praise past and present zalimoon who are at best God’s enemies, openly and secretly. Men like Mustafa Kamal Ataturk, MA Jinnah, Hosni Mubarak, Saddam Hussein, Ghaddafi, Ben Ali, Al-Saud family, Abdullah of Jordan, Assads of Syria, Bhuttos and Sharifs of Pakistan, and so forth. Others conclude that Jeffersonian, Westminister, Socialist, Communist, or other secular style ruling system (i.e. pagan ruling system) is not only Just but also superior to the Holy Shari’ah (God’ Holy Law)!! What has gone wrong with them? Did they not notice a Book lying covered on top of a shelf in their house? It’s called the Holy Quran.
Did Allah swt send the Holy Quran as a guidance for mankind, or as a book for memorization? The Holy Prophet Muhammad swm will have something to say about those people who abandoned the radical revivalist message of Islam in the Quran. This is again from Surah Al Furqan, verse 30 (with three TMQs for getting a wider meaning of the translation):
Waqala arrasoolu yarabbi inna qawmee ittakhathoo hatha alqurana mahjoora (transliteration 25:30)
And the Messenger has said, “O my Lord, indeed my people have taken this Qur’an as [a thing] abandoned.” Sahih International.
Then the Messenger will say: “O my Lord! Truly my people took this Qur’an for just foolish nonsense.” Yusuf Ali.
And the Messenger will say, “O My Lord! These are my people, the ones who had disabled this Quran, making it of no account [They had immobilized it like villagers who bind a cow by tying her front foot to her horn. Mahjoor = A cow thus immobilized] Quran as it Explains Itself (QXP).
