Islamic Renaissance

A Voice for the Muslim Freedom Struggle

Politics is not a dirty word

politics

I absolutely hate how stupid and thick the average person is. The word “politics” has deliberately been demonised in the average person’s vocabulary as “unpopular”/”uncool”/”boring”/”dirty”.

The point is to keep you enslaved, politics is about humanity, it is about lives, and it is about blood that is spilled in your name.

It’s funny, when I was young, my friends used to think I was “uncool and boring” for caring about “politics”. My passion for human life was seen as a craze. I would be asked why I would get so worked up about politics, why I was so serious about it.

But they failed to understand. I wasn’t the crazy one, they were. The average human being is a slave that walks around wearing the freedom badge. But wearing the freedom badge doesn’t make you free.

No I am not normal, no I am not like you, no I don’t fit in. Yes I am angry, yes I am depressed, yes I am overwhelmed by the condition of the world. Yes I do feel lost and alone most of the time, but I’d rather have that then to sell my humanity like most human beings have.

It’s like what Allah says in the Quran, they only wrong their souls. Their soul demands them to live for a cause that is greater than themselves, that is the only road to freedom. But they chase poison wrapped as freedom.

You throw the word “politics” around like it’s a dirty word or an obsession of mine, but the truth is it’s about lives, it’s about the future of this world, and it is the greatest service to God.

Humanity can only advance when human beings realise that happiness can only be achieved collectively.

We can only achieve happiness when we realise we were never sent to achieve our purpose alone, the human purpose was always collective, we must become one before we can reflect the oneness of God and fulfill our mission.

Introduction to Narrative

Islamic Renaissance is embarking on a new journey, a journey of education. The most important part of this journey is our ability, as a community, to understand the ideological war against us.

Therefore, I introduce to you part one of this module, “Narrative: The Ideological Weapon of Mass Destruction”.

We will be answering the following questions:

What is a Narrative?

What is the power of a Narrative?

How have Narratives been used in the past?

If there were one thing we would like you to take away form this video, it would be for you to think, reflect and spread what you have learnt.

We are no longer relying on our University professors, our Imams at the Mosques, our Scholars from Saudi Arabia to educate us, from today we will be true to the command of God, and we will educate ourselves, no matter what it costs, because the price of remaining ignorant is one we cannot afford to pay.

What we are about to tell you is a threat to our oppressors, because for the first time, you will understand the weapon they have used against us, and you will learn how to overcome them using the same weapon, the weapon of narratives.
