The last decade or so has been difficult for Muslims in many countries, but Muslims are still suffering the most in their own countries due to bad governance, low literacy rates, and poverty. If many non-Muslims are anxiety stricken by the savage actions of some bloodthirsty fanatic Muslims, it is helpful to remember the victims are overwhelmingly Muslims. However, some politicians have found the blanket accusation of all Muslims beneficial for their hate mongering.

It has now become too common for fascists to hide behind the terrorist curtain and show their naked prejudice. Worse, ignorant elements who hail from religiously diverse countries, have found it serving to their bigotry to insult all Muslims. And it will be good if Western politicians remembered their governments and intelligence agencies were responsible for creating the modern-day Hydra, with a hundred heads, that is terrorizing Muslim countries more than others. Yet, the Muslim revival movement is already gaining ground among different sectors of the societies, mainly the youth. Since a few years ago, many Muslims are being influenced by fervent preachers who are challenging the long-held misconceptions and cultural problems that until recently, were considered a taboo. Unfortunately, some of the narrations were compiled two centuries after the death of the prophet, and they have been in the center of the misconceptions that burdened Muslims for centuries.
Ijmaa, or consensus, is somewhat equivalent to the Christian Ecumenical Council. Over the years, the narrations have become so revered that many consider them akin to the Qura’an, and many consider Bukhari, a person who could have prejudices, wrong judgments, and misquotes, as infallible. Unfortunately, some narrations do not sound logical to the critical minded who reject them. In addition, the compilations are based on word of mouth told by someone who quotes a chain of sources that lived many generations earlier. Sadly, holding such a view could arouse the wrath of the fundamentalist establishments and expose one to the risk of being considered an apostate. For so long, many critical issues remained a taboo and whatever was discussed, hardly reached the common Muslim, unlike today when social media has become accessible to many Muslims who are feeding on information they never knew existed.
Christianity passed through many such phases, particularly Catholicism, which went through more than twenty ecumenical councils and congresses to discuss on a host of controversial issues, such as the use contraceptives, and Liberation Theology that started in Latin America, and the like. The Protestant churches also hold such congresses and ecumenical council, but if they reach a dead-end, they leave it to the rational judgement of the adherents. The Abyssinian Tewahdo Church still holds to the decisions of the Fourth Ecumenical Council of the Chalcedonian churches that was held in Modern Turkey in AD 451. In the last few decades, religious edicts issued by fanatic personalities, or by those who think they can legislate Islamic laws on behalf of God, has been wreaking havoc everywhere. For instance, in Egypt alone over 200 people were killed by extremist Muslims in less than two years between 1992-1993. Orthodox Muslim fundamentalists believe they are the only genuine Muslims and act as if they have a divine authority to kill anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their worldview.
It is worth remembering that the modern phase of Islamic fundamentalism was sparked by the return of thousands of young Muslims who were trained and armed by the West, mainly the USA, to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. When the Soviet Union left Afghanistan, the haphazard plans failed to transition the country to normalcy. Elsewhere, the same haphazard plan failed or provide rehabilitation and accommodation for the thousands of Muslim youth who returned to their countries with heavy doses of fundamentalist ideology, only to be marginalized and hopelessly unemployed, and they couldn’t re-integrate into their original societies. The same has happened to the adventure of the West in Iraq, where Bremer disbanded the Iraqi army whose members faced the same fate as those who returned from Afghanistan.
Al-Qaeda to establish a franchise in Iraq with the Afghani-Arab Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, as its leader. Over time, the chaos created by the power vacuum and mayhem in Iraq, and the dictatorship in Syria, and the restless youth who were emboldened by fiery fundamentalist preachers, and intelligence work by some countries, gave birth to ISIS whose transgressions added to the already spreading fundamentalism, particularly in the Arab world. That gave rise to a new breed of preachers, or provoked them to be critical of what is happening in the Muslim world. The monopoly of discussion agendas in the Muslim public and intellectual realms by the Orthodox strain of Islam, is being eroded. Muslim thought is being shattered as a new wave of scholars and preachers are taking the center stage.
Renowned thinkers and scholars, including The Syrian Engineer, Dr. Mohammed Shahrour, the Saudi thinker and scholar Dr. Hassen Maliki, the Tunisian Lawyer and politician Abdulfattah Moro, the Lebanese preacher Shiekh Yassir Aoudah, and a few others are shaking the strong foundation of hate preaching, to the chagrin of the Orthodox Muslims. There is also another group of rebellious sheiks and scholars who are making their non-conformist views known. Though eloquent, Mizu does not belong to the heavyweights, but he has a considerable following among the young, particularly in Egypt where his criticism of the Al-Azhar University curriculum and Selefi establishments, are centered around the concerns of the young: love, marriage, music, liberal lifestyle, women’s rights, etc. Adnan Ibrahim, who was born and raised in a refugee camp in Gaza, and moved to Yugoslavia before settling in Austria where he is an Imam of a mosque.
