Allah Cannot Stop the Islamic Reformation
Allah Cannot Stop the Islamic Reformation by JC Collins
Using Jihad-Reversal to Forever Alter the Interpretation of the Muhammadan Law
Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come.
Over multiple centuries the Christian faith went through periods of change which forever altered the religions context and interpretation. From the Lutheran Reformation to the onset of the Enlightenment, the Christian religion and Catholic Church transformed from its regimented and structured past to establish the framework which carried it into the modern world.
It can be reasonably argued that the advancement in technology which the Gutenberg Printing Press represented was one of the causative factors which set the Lutheran (Protestant) Reformation in motion. These advancements continued throughout the Age of Enlightenment, or Reason, and brought the Western world into the 20th Century.
Changes which are taking place in the world today are also causative factors in the transformation of the Islamic faith, though this may not be as obvious as one would expect. The first hint of this Islamic Reformation is the wide disbursement of Muslims around the world. Comparing this Islamic migration to previous migrations which contributed to the Holy Crusades would be a mistake as the world is a fundamentally different place than it was 9 centuries ago.
Whereas the instinctual reaction from those in the West to this large Islamic migration brings about images of an allegorical Trojan horse which will release a horde of Muslim invaders from inside Mosques throughout the land, the more probable outcome will be that Muslim migrants will be swallowed up by Western culture.
There are various contributors to such an outcome. The most obvious is the insidious nature of Western culture itself. During the build up to the crusades Christendom was more disciplined and provided a clear oppositional contrast to the Islamic faith. The divide was well defined and when the momentum built the turnaround came with little resistance.
The Islamic migration which the Western world is encountering today is one where boundaries and limitations are not as well defined. Islam cannot be blamed for misconstruing this as weakness, as on first glance that is what most would conclude. But the ever moving cultural norms, flexibilities and allowances will inevitably cause fractures within those migrating to the West.
Consider that instead of an Islamic Trojan horse the West has left the gates open to draw as many in as possible with the intent of remoulding the religion through an incremental process of cultural and socioeconomic interception. This process would leverage the Islamic predisposition for Jihad against the very structure which Jihad is meant to protect and expand, being the Muhammadan law.
