Born-Muslim Syndrome

The “Born-Muslim Syndrome,” is a disease that humans contract from Iblis in his statement of claim to be better than Adam, “I am better than he.”

The prophet and his companions were successful in Islam because they accepted Quran as instructions from Allah by which they conducted their lives. They had nothing to distract from Quran and desired only the Word of Allah in their sincere devotion to Allah.

Islam has failed in people who became complacent because of their self-acclaimed “born-Muslim” status.

Islam places a serious responsibility upon the one who begins his life with Muslim parents, too serious for him to allow himself to suffer the loss of awareness and guidance as he slips into false pride and gullibility within a racist group, for Iblis was being racist when he refused to bow at the creation of Adam.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 “Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to your parents whether one or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of contempt nor repel them, but address them in terms of honour, and out of kindness lower to them the wing of humility, and say, My Lord, bestow on them Thy mercy even as they cherished me in childhood.” Sura Bani Israel, xvii: 23,24

 “We have enjoined on man, kindness to parents, but if they strive (to force you to join with Me in worship) anything of which you have no knowledge, OBEY THEM NOT, YOU HAVE TO RETURN TO ME AND I WILL TELL YOU ALL THAT YOU DID.” Sura Ankabul, xxix: 8.

 “And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents; in travail upon travail did his mother bear him, and in years twain was his weaning: Show gratitude to Me and to your parents: to Me is your Goal. But if they strive to make you join in worship with Me things of which you have no knowledge, OBEY THEM NOT, yet bear them company in this life with justice and follow the way of those who turn to Me: in the end the return of you all is to Me, and I will tell you the truth of all that you did.” Sura Luqman, xxxi: 14, 15.

The parents are duty bound to guide the child as commanded by the Quran just as the child is expected to honour the parents by the command of the Quran. Allah speaks the Truth.

The parent-to-child/child-to-parent command goes around and comes around, and this is instruction that begins with the birth of the Muslim to the child as well as to the parents who are first in line for shaping the life of the Muslim, and this command calls on the child to accept responsibility with the parents as witness and as first teacher.

No man who reads the Quran in submission to the Will of Allah will imagine himself to be fortunate to be born of Muslim parents and therefore born in possession of the favours without any effort of his own.

When one accepts his Islam as a gift from his parents, this Islam that he imagines then comes, not from Allah, but from someone who was commanded to be a slave of Allah and failed in his duty towards Allah and towards his offspring:

 “They impress upon thee as a favour they have embraced Islam. Allah has conferred a favour upon you that He has guided you to the Faith if you be true and sincere.” Q. XLIX: 17

The Muslim is duty bound to make every effort to convey to others the purity of the Quran, to the best of his ability, in which he must avoid fabrications to make up for his lack of knowledge or lack of understanding, which misleads others.

Islam gives to the man his rightful place and his manhood, which he earns by his obedience and his sincere devotion to Allah. Womanhood is a gift from Allah to the woman and to the man, but a man must earn his manhood in obedience to his Lord and with his fear for the displeasure of his Lord.

If a man is blinded by the Light of the Quran and he fails to see this Light because he places the sayings that are attributed to the man other than the Revelation from Allah before the Word of Allah, then he ignores this:

 “Were We to send down this Quran on a mountain you would see it humble itself and cleave asunder for fear of Allah.” Quran lix, 22

And he becomes a living example of this:

 “We did indeed offer the trust to the Heavens and the Earth and the Mountains but they refused to undertake it being afraid thereof, but man undertook is. He was indeed unjust and foolish.” Quran xxxiii, 72

The above information from the Quran provides a picture of proof for success or for the failure of the Deen of Islam. Any belief that ignores the Power of the Quran, even if it is presented as operating alongside the Quran, it joins another in worship of Allah in derogation of Allah.

The Born-Muslim Syndrome provides us with a Greek God as a prophet of Islam who will return from the sky, and order the Biblical stoning to death of women for adultery only to satisfy cowardly racist desires, and this leads men away from the Path of Allah.
