In a documentary aired on Channel 4, in December 2006, “The Trouble with Atheism”, the arch-atheist Richard Dawkins declared:
“The time has come for people of reason to say enough is enough. Religious faith discourages independent thought, it’s divisive and it’s dangerous.”
If one substitutes “Islam” for “reason” and “the Ahmadiyya cult” for “religious faith”, one will end up with:
“The time has come for people of Islam to say enough is enough. The Ahmadiyya cult discourages independent thought, it’s divisive and it’s dangerous.”
It is interesting that those who, despite calling themselves the advocates of the “real” Islam, are determined to destroy the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, also happen to be bent on pursuing the lines of argumentation that characterise disbelievers.
Allah the Most High draws our attention to this peculiar phenomenon in verses 53 and 54 of Surah al-Dhaariyaat:
“Even so there came no Messenger to those before them, but they said, ‘A sorcerer, or a madman!’
Have they made it a legacy to one another? Nay, they are (all) a rebellious people.”
The arguments put forward by disbelievers, whether they claim to be religious or not, are always so similar in their style and wording that it would appear that they have, in effect, inherited these lines of reasoning from one another. The reason is that they are all rebellious to any authority sent by God and they are hindered in very similar ways by their psychology of rejection.
We should therefore expect to see frighteningly similar words pouring out of the mouths and flowing from the pens of those who disbelieve in the truth, whether they are hardened atheists or religious individuals who choose to disbelieve in one or more of Allah’s messengers.
For, according to the well-known saying,
الكفر ملة واحدة
“Disbelief is one nation.”
