What are the similarities between #Trump and #NoumanAliKhan ?
Read more and find out..!
Nouman Ali Khan a popular Muslim preacher is on a dangerous trajectory and Muslims of all, practicing or non practicing, must be aware of his deliberate attempt to disregard classical core beliefs of Orthodox Islam; crucial tenants of the faith which anchors a person to traditional Sunni Islam. It’s not been long since he was caught in a firestorm of a scandal which spread across the world through social media as a result of which he has come to be known as the “vanilla Imam”. Giving the benefit of doubt, I decided be on the fence rather than join the social media black belt keyboard warriors and what they had painted him out to be; an older creepy middle-aged man trying to groom a younger girl/lady into illicit relations.
Having managed to survive that scandal and claw his way back to some degree of redemption, Nouman Ali Khan is now unashamed of anything, ‘if I can survive this, I can survive anything‘ and is not holding back any longer on any of his twisted beliefs. A man who has survived a scandal and come out of the other end without bruises or cuts seems to think all the years of the cabinet of curiosities he has kept hidden away can finally now get displayed, clearly knowing he will not lose any of his dedicated fans who swoon on his every word.
In a growing line of controversies under Nouman Ali Khan the latest exploit causing an uproar, (and rightly so) is using his global reach to dishonour and ridicule the noble and glorified status of the Prophets of Allah (may peace be on them all). On his Facebook page which has over a million “likes” he highlights how the father of mankind Adam (peace be on him), was a failure, and how all our lives began with a failure, an uncanny Christian belief which he has clearly taken and adopted, known as “the original sin“. A set of dogma which teaches all humans born into this world are born sinful due to the sin committed by the father of humankind, Adam (peace be on him) astagfirullah. In his latest Facebook post he claims Adam (peace be on him) was a failure and this is the reason why our lives begin with failure.
Going after the honourable status of the Prophets of Allah azzawajal; dishonouring their legacy and the powerful rejuvenating teachings they have left behind is tantamount to disbelief in the essential core beliefs of Sunni Islam. This blasphemous attack is coming on the back of another dangerous repugnant statement he made with regards to the master of the Prophets (peace and blessings be on him), in which he said Rasulallah (peace be on him) “became” a Muslim when angel Jibrail (peace be on him) came to him with the first Quranic revelation. La hawla Quwata illah billah, astagfirullah! A man clearly out to cause as much controversies as possible. (watch here)
Instead of trying to be relevent for his large fan base by attempting deal with issues of the day head on, when droves of young Muslims are having serious doubts about their faith due to the onslaught of virulent Atheism in which some are becoming the mouth pieces of the far right, openly rejecting the faith and ridiculing it, Nouman prefers to pick on non issues, to spur on his elaborate marketing ploy by attracting free publicity for his business, – being the centre of social media discussions across the Muslim world undoubtedly brings in extra revenue through word of mouth publicity!
Adam (peace be on him) and all the other Prophets and Messengers of Allah were sinless and certainly not “failures” even before they were “officially” ordained as prophets and messengers of Allah.
When Adam (peace be on him) ate the forbidden fruit he did it out of forgetfulness and did not do so deliberately to rebel against the command of Allah unlike the cursed Shaitan. Islamic scriptures are clear on anyone who commits an act out of forgetfulness even a “sin” the deed is not counted against him as “sin”, instead overlooked as a simple mistake and he or she has not become a failure. There is a difference.
Muslims around the world should be aware of such off-the-cuff attacks on core beliefs of Sunni Islam. Otherwise anyone who prefers to ignore these types of comments is willingly joining the growing bandwagon of muslim liberal feminism who have begun to openly lambast the best of best, the prophets of Allah azzawajal. This slowly pushes a person into the abyss of the religion of pluralism, a dark and twisted belief mechanism which essentially teaches all religions are true and are avenues to Allah; something that is unfortunately gaining traction among the social media celebrity Imams and orators.
Nouman has taken a page out of the US President Donald Trump’s handbook of “how to be an expert marketing strategist”. Everyone is well aware how nothing is off-limits for the narcissist president who often makes bombastic comments and remarks on anything, always causing controversies and firestorms of condemnations from across the world.
It’s good for his brand and businesses, creates awareness; this is the ultimate reason why he does it.
His crazy outbursts always ensures he is in the news and people from across the world are talking about him on TV, internet, radio, forums, social gatherings, ultimately benefiting the “Trump” brand and makes him more known to people who may not be aware of him, playing the age old game of name and fame..
Nouman Ali Khan is doing exactly the same. By increasing his outrageously dangerous comments it ensures the limelight is always flashing on him and this (for him) is all the FREE business advertising anyone can dream of.
Lastly, Nouman Ali khan should make a public tawbah and retract his insane remarks and make amends for his mistakes. Unless, like #trump Nouman Ali Khan also never apologies for anything he utters instead twists to get through his agendas.
