Changing the Unchangeable (Modernism) by Abu Mussab Wajdi Akkari

The Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad and it perfected the religion of Islam. There is even an ayat in the Quran which says “This day we have perfected your deen”. It was perfect back then, and it is still perfect now.

Yet there are still people today who believe that Islam was never perfected. They claim to be Muslims on one hand, yet on the other they disbelieve in the verse which acknowledges the religion was perfected. These are the so called “Modern Muslims” who want desperately to change the unchangeable: The Quran.

These deviant groups have adopted a number of new words for their movement: reform, progressive Islam, progressive Muslims, moderate Muslims, western Muslims, modernist group, modern Muslims, and many more. Instead of following the Quran and Sunnah, they ask the westerners how Islam should be.

“Don’t worry, I’ll change it for you”

“What part of it don’t you like?”

“We are no longer living in the dark ages”

According to the modern muslims, Islam must adapt to the current circumstances in society. What was acceptable back then in the times of the Sahabah is no longer acceptable today. They say beards were just a fashion to protect people from the harsh desert, and women need to be liberated and are allowed to dress half naked to prove this.

Not only do the modernism movements led by well known deviants such as Suhaib Webb and Hamza Yusuf reject certain teachings of Islam, they also completely change the religion to suit their own desires. For modernists, “Everything is Halal” is their mantra, they promote Nationalism to extremes, and call for the unity of all religions so that even the disbelievers will end up in Jannah.

Another of their frequent catch cries is “Only God can Judge me”, as they deny the right to others to refute or criticise them, even though they deserve it and it is obligatory for us Muslims to warn others of them. Deviant Suhaib Webb will even threaten you with violence if you expose his “personal brand of Islam”.

The deviance has reached the highest of levels. They acknowledge the 73 sects but claim they are in the right sect so it’s ok. But what they do not realise is that often their deviant beliefs have taken them so far outside of Islam, that they do not even qualify to be one of the sects. Take heed of this advice: Beware of the Modern Muslim.
