If we are to look at the sorry state of affairs regarding the problem of the disintegration of the family institution of Western Society, especially when it concerns the growing numbers of illegitimate children being born over there in the developed nations, we who are Believers in Allah the Almighty as Mukmins, will shudder seeing how holy marriage is now no more being upheld as a pillar of legalised identity amongst mankind over there.
There used to be a time in the Western human society where the very act of the union between a man and a woman was an extremely important matter and those who committed fornication and adultery outside marriage were severely dealt with and ostracised by the whole community.
Sadly, as Mankind started to progress in Science & Technology, the much-appreciated sense of decency and morality started to be shed, bit by bit until today, there are those in the West who have lost it altogether!
Depravity has become the order of the day and there are now millions in America, Britain, Canada, France, Denmark, and many other European countries where men and women do not know who their father is?
They belong to the Nations of Bastards!
There are so many cases of children being raped and turned into sex slaves by their own fathers, grandfathers, uncles, cousins, and brothers that it is mind boggling to even think what has happened to Western society despite them claiming to be fighting for Freedom, Human Rights, Dignity for the entire world!
The number of illegitimate children being born worldwide is alarming. Check out this 2014 chart. Horrendous!
Living together @ cohabiting has become the norm in most of the countries above. Really disgusting!
Even here in Malaysia, we are seeing a worrying case of teenage pregnancies due to sex outside marriage.
So, who do we blame? The authorities, the parents, or the young females themselves or the perverts and paedophiles, often found to be their own family members or close contacts to these unfortunate girls or young women?
We can easily point an accusing finger to so many sources, but it just won’t solve the problem. Some say that the easy availability of social media where videos and photos of explicit content adds to the vulnerability of these young victims.
But that would not be fair as through the internet and other current and future communication methods, Mankind also gains so much to educate and inform those who need to know and learn from billions of informative, immensely beneficial websites and portals.
So, it also comes down to proper parenting and guidance of those who fear Allah and are raised according to time honored traditions and values which do not victimize anyone as per what we hold to be our true values as responsible human beings. Yet we differ from one nation to another, through our cultures and traditions, which might be acceptable to one but offensive to another.
I came across and watched an Ethiopian movie recently showing the injustice suffered by a teenage schoolgirl who was forcibly abducted on her way back home to her parents. She was raped and kept hostage by a man whom she had refused to be betrothed to because she wanted to continue with her studies and dreamed of going to a university.
When she got a chance to escape and, in the process, was forced to shoot and kill her abductor and rapist, using a rifle carelessly left by the man, she was caught and handed over to the police. The villagers bayed for her blood and demanded her to be killed in return.
A dedicated female lawyer, working pro bono, fought tenaciously against all odds to obtain her freedom, facing so many obstacles from a male dominated society, still steeped in age old unjust traditions where a man can just take by force any girl or woman, he likes, rape and do with her whatever he wants!
Watch this award-winning Angelina Jolie produced, Ethiopian movie [Difret] below and try to understand what still goes on in certain parts of our world?
Where girls and young women are still not being given their rights and respect to live life as they deserve.
Society needs to get back to the basics of human decency and accord to the womenfolk true respect and rights that each of them deserves. We need to stop this terrible slide of hedonistic practices that destroyed so many civilizations before us as recorded in human history.
It starts from home and each of us have a responsibility towards saving our loved ones from becoming unfortunate statistics, amongst those who earn the Wrath of the Almighty and perish as a whole from this Life!
Allah Azza Wa Jallacommands that‘As for female and male [unmarried] fornicators, give each of them one hundred lashes, and do not let pity for them make you lenient in ˹enforcing˺ the law of Allah if you ˹truly˺ believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a number of believers witness their punishment.’
You need to learn and differentiate between the Islamic Syariah punishment and that of the ‘Civil Courts’ system of caning.
The proper way of administering the Syariah caning system is like that which is currently being put to practice in the Autonomous Region of Nanggroe Acheh Darussalam, North Sumatra, in the Peoples Republic of Indonesia.
It is meant to be a means of educating society through punishing the wrongdoers in a manner that is more of a milder form of punishment and make them repent than cause them grievous hurt and harm them permanently which is evident in the methods used by the Civil Courts as shown below:
Believe me that whichever convicted prisoner is caned as per the Civil Courts system, he will definitely be not only scarred for life, his libido will be no more as the severe caning will surely cause him internal organ damage!
Try doing that in all these countries having all these skyrocketing adulterous fornication cases and you’ll see an immediate reduction of such crimes.
Watch the video below and see for yourselves how Pastor Steven Anderson, a Christian preacher is lambasting Iceland for being the leading ‘Nation of Bastards‘ with 67% of its population now known to be bastards, born illegitimately!
Pastor Gino Jennings is a straight-talking American preacher who gives his congregation a tongue lashing when it comes to matters such as Sex out of Marriage and Fornication!
I recall reading somewhere that there is only a faint line separating us, Mukmins who are True Believers in Allahu Rabbul Alamin from these Christian preachers Steven Anderson, Gino Jennings and Rabbis from the Orthodox Jewish communities.
I read comments from those who hate Christian preachers like Pastor Anderson and Pastor Gino Jennings accusing him of being agents of Satan or Islam, because they can’t stomach the hard-hitting truth of his arguments!
If only these deaf, dumb, and blind folks obey and listen to preachers Anderson or Gino Jennings, those Western countries wouldn’t be facing the realities of today where their population is now approaching humongous proportions of bastards amongst them!
Sadly, even people here in Asia are falling into the chasm of fornicators and adulterers without giving a rat’s ass about it or bother about the prohibitions from Allah the Almighty to not approach Zina @ Fornication!
I can only do my bit by sharing reminders such as this posting to help you and myself to do our best to avoid succumbing to our Nafs, so we may be saved from falling into the Hellfire by our Repentance and striving to be on the Straight Path that Allah has revealed to us through the Al-Quran, His Final Commandments to Guide us to our Salvation!
