Liberal Muslims mourn the death of David Bowie

David Bowie the British music “legend” died yesterday due to his long standing battle with cancer.  Widely herald in the media for the “tremendous and ingenious work” he had done in his field of music, achieving worldwide fame and respect as a musician .  From leading politians to musicians from across the world  condolences have been flooding in all full of praise and adulation for the singer. 

Why does this matter and why am I even writing about the self-proclaimed occultist

The simple answer is, among the throng of famous and the not –  so – famous people heaping praise on the singer,  there are, as usual, mole Muslims who go to great lengths in order to feel inclusive and appease the white folks as it were to show they are not extremists but just normal human beings.  That, like many they too listen to music and “appriciate” a masterclass when they hear it.  Facebook has been awash with very liberal Muslims expressing their sorrow and shock at the demise of a “great creator,  icon and genius” . 


An interesting response to anyone who wishes to disagree with this.  Here it is:-


It is beggar’s belief to think doing this in some way will do them favour to help them fulfill their goals –  make them be seen as someone different from the “rag wearing dirty Muslims of the backward cave dwelling places of the Muslim world”.
Here is another “public commentator” Mohammed Ansar expressing his undying love for Bowie.


It’s no surprise why liberal Muslims are often times in the public limelight.  Na’eem Raza is the fundraising director of Human Appeal International who is also a TV presenter and Mohammed Ansar is the go-to-guy for all the media when Muslims need to be questioned on controversial issues. These two individuals are an advertisement of how society would like Muslims to be: open and accepting to changes of reforming Islam for the 21st century whether through subtle or apparent means.  This leads on to the following question which is bound to be on the mind of some people:

What’s the big deal if someone is showing remorse for a being who has died?

For a detailed answer the following rethorical questions are appropriate:-

Is this now another compulsory thing to have to have to do; express sadness and remorse for all celebrities who die and failure to do so is a sign of extremism?
Should we not see who a person is and what his goals in life was before we jump headlong into the bandwagon with the rest?
Thirdly,  does it mean now the younger generation of Muslims growing up in the west should listen to music as it is a harmless form of expression and art,  regardless of who sings it or what his background is?

Yes I am aware of the hadith in which the prophet Sallahu alihi wasallam  stood up for a Jewish person who had died and his funeral was passing by.  This was done as a gesture of respect to a fellow human.  If this is the reason why these the liberals are expressing their remorse then this should be done for all, the famous and the not so famous.  But this does not happen and nor will it ever, as there are ulterior motives why someone does an act. 
For the liberals there is no question on where they stand.  These are the people who will, if not already, in a few years time say whats wrong with a harmless pint or a night at the club?

Finally  it brings me on to asking who was David Bowie? – (for all those who may not have heard of him) .  In brief, he was a devout occultist who was a hardened follower of Alcester Crowley, author of the Satanic Bible and Anton Levay, the founder of the Satanic Church.

In one of his songs (I won’t mention which one) Bowies dedicates his life to Alcester Crowley:-

“I’m closer to the Golden Dawn
Immersed in Crowley’s uniform
Of imagery
I’m living in a silent film
Himmler’s sacred realm
Of dream reality
I’m frightened by the total goal..”

Below is another example of the type of person he was; a man with dark intentions right though to his very soul.

A devout occultist

Yet despite the facts liberal Muslims who are on the increase will see these sorts of RIP posts issued through Facebook or otherwise as harmless show of respect for humanity at the loss of a life . This is not in the least but instead a sign of feeling the growing unease within themselves at current events around the world resulting in needing to post, write, read, listen to and watch all things everyone else is doing in hope of extinguishing the unease and making it vanish.  A sign they are fearful one day their cosy trouble free lives will be destroyed and completely overturned,  a feeling of nervous anticipation of the white folk and what he might think of them. In an age of awesome deception and foolhardy lifestyles it is becoming more difficult is live as a traditional Muslim upholding the classical image,  thought and understanding of Islam. The Prophet Sallahu alhi wasallam said:

Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him) said: “There will come upon the people a time when holding onto the religion will be like holding onto hot coal.” (Tirmidhi)

Islam is in the spotlight now more than ever before and this has caused people to question the faith itself and none more so than the new-age modernists muslims, largely from the convert western countries who are hell-bent on reforming Islam and its traditional values. This blog is a small space in the vastness of the internet where the fight to preserve, uphold and dignify the traditional inherent human values, are proactively argued against the onslaught of modernist propaganda and hate. Covering topics from current affairs to life-enriching inspirations, though to the traditional teachings of the pious and the awliyah of the past and the present.

I understand why something like this is wrong, but what about classical music? I listen to classical music all the time, and it helps me to be calm. It relaxes me. By classical I mean like Beethoven, Chopin, etc.

I can’t see how this could be condemned. It is so beautiful, and I think it demonstrates the perfection of Allah’s creation.


Islam will benefit and live up to its expectation as the ‘religion of peace’ only when liberal muslims take control of it, just as liberals have done to Christianity. Conservatives and Religion never mix well.
