Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s

People have tried to restrict Islām to a Religion like Christianity that is separated from the affairs of State and governance.

The above is a Biblical statement that is purported to be a Statement of the Masīh ‘Īsah – Alayhi As-Salām – telling his People to obey the Earthly authorities that are established on them by the Roman empire.

But it’s interpretation has been used in Modern times to emphasize the separation of Religion from State Affairs and unfortunately some Muslims have fallen into this trap.

The Rasūl -salallāhu alayhi wasallam – came to is with the complete Way of Life in Islām and was a Statesman and Governor over Madīnah firstly, and the Ruler over the Lands that submitted to Islām in his lifetime.

After his passing, his Companions extended the reach of his State and Khalīfah after Khalīfah, the State was governed by the Way of Life which he brought that is embodied in the Sharī’ah.

This continued until the Last Khalīfah of the Muslims was exiled in 1924 and the Caliphate proclaimed abolished by the West after splitting the Muslim Lands into bits and pieces under the control and influence of the Christian Western Countries in what is known as the colonization.

It was this Modern times that the ideas of separating state from religion became a Creed that is preached and is filtered into the ears of Muslims, calling for the non-interference in Matters of State and seeking to restrict Islām to the Masjid and in private matters such as marriage, divorce and childbirth.

Separating religion from State is so Abhorent that the bearers of this filthy understanding seem to imply that every Individual should keep his belief to himself and not disturb the society with it.

A Muslim who believes in Allāh and the Last Day will never assume this for it stinks the influence of the West and the ideologies of state. They built their Nation States on the rubbles of the Caliphate of Islām, they colonised Muslim Lands on the pile of the skills of our Ulamā and Leaders.

Let the Muslims return to their history that they may know what went wrong and where the compass failed…
