By Abu Khadeejah ʿAbdul-Wāhid.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, the Lord and Creator of all the worlds who has blessed us with Islam, the Religion for all of mankind – and He, the Mighty and Majestic, closed all the pathways to Paradise except by this one path, and that is the Straight Path (as-Sirāt al-Mustaqeem), the Steadfast Path, the Path of the Prophets and Messengers, from the first of them to the last.

إِنَّ ٱلدِّينَ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلْإِسْلَـٰمُ ۗ

“Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam.” (Aali ʿImrān: 19)

And those who reject it after hearing its message and the message of its Prophet, Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) will be punished by Allah because the excuses are cut off once the truth and guidance is conveyed to him. Allah (the Most High) warns the deniers:

قُل لِّلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا سَتُغْلَبُونَ وَتُحْشَرُونَ إِلَىٰ جَهَنَّمَ ۚ وَبِئْسَ ٱلْمِهَادُ ١٢

“Say to those who have disbelieved, ‘You will be overcome and gathered together for Hell, and wretched is the resting place.’” (Aali ʿImrān: 12) 

That is because, on that frightening Day, no religion will be accepted except Islam―it is the only Religion that calls man to submit himself to the Will of Allah, in His worship alone and in His devoted obedience. Allah stated:

وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ ٱلْإِسْلَـٰمِ دِينًا فَلَن يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِى ٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ مِنَ ٱلْخَـٰسِرِينَ ٨٥

“And whoever desires other than Islām as religion ― never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.” (Aali ʿImrān: 85) Allah calls upon the People of the Book (the Christians and Jews) to join the people of Islam and single out the One Lord and Almighty God in worship:

 قُلْ يَـٰٓأَهْلَ ٱلْكِتَـٰبِ تَعَالَوْا۟ إِلَىٰ كَلِمَةٍۢ سَوَآءٍۭ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكُمْ أَلَّا نَعْبُدَ إِلَّا ٱللَّهَ وَلَا نُشْرِكَ بِهِۦ شَيْـًۭٔا وَلَا يَتَّخِذَ بَعْضُنَا بَعْضًا أَرْبَابًۭا مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ ۚ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا۟ فَقُولُوا۟ ٱشْهَدُوا۟ بِأَنَّا مُسْلِمُونَ ٦٤

“Say: O People of the Scripture! Come to an agreement between us and you: that we shall worship none but Allah, and that we shall ascribe no partner unto Him, and that none of us shall take others for lords beside Allah. And if they turn away, then say: Bear witness that we are those who have surrendered unto Him.” (Aali ʿImrān: 64) The name Allah refers to the Lord and Creator, the only God worthy of worship. 

Today, various forms of religion and religiosity exist, including traditional ones like Islam, Judaism and Christianity. Additionally, there are numerous ideologies today that resemble religion, with dedicated followers who espouse their beliefs. These ideologies propound theories, laws, practices, and even rituals, such as Satanism, Wokeism, Liberalism, neo-Marxism, Western Socialism, Radical Feminism, the Big Bang Theory, and Evolutionary Darwinism.

(Above Image 1: Satanism is a way of life and religion practised by a growing minority in the West. They espouse the same ideas of egalitarianism and social justice as Wokeism. Thus, you will find many Wokeist SJW activists in their congregations.
Image 2: The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), together with its Pennsylvania chapter, sent a letter to the Saucon Valley school district demanding that they allow the After School Satan Club, or ASSC, access to school facilities in accordance with the US constitution’s first amendment right to practice religion freely. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/mar/08/pennsylvania-after-school-satan-club 22 March 2023, The Guardian newspaper.)

Many of these groups and group identities intersect with each other sharing values, beliefs, and political aims that can be easily depicted in a tightly-knit Venn diagram. Wokeism is presently the dominant ideology in the West that brings together varied political orientations and group identities through which they exert significant societal influence, and they seem to ‘shout’ with a voice that seeks to silence all opposition.

The Big Bang Theory in a Few Words

The Big Bang theory is an unproven [and an impossible-to-prove] pseudo-scientific explanation for the origin and evolution of the universe. According to this theory, the universe began as a singularity—a point of infinite density and temperature—and it has been expanding ever since. The term “Big Bang” was coined by physicist Fred Hoyle in the 1940s, and it refers to the rapid expansion of matter and energy from a highly compressed state. According to the Big Bang theory, the universe started approximately 13.8 billion years ago! A time span that is unimaginable to the human mind, and completely impossible to state what happened at that point in time! At the moment of the Big Bang, all matter and energy were contained within a small, hot, and dense region (a point). As the universe expanded, it cooled down, allowing the formation of subatomic particles such as protons, neutrons, and electrons. As time went on, these particles joined together to form atoms, which eventually led to the creation of stars, galaxies, and the vast structure of the cosmos that we observe today. [1] The purpose of the theory, in essence, is to disprove the existence of the Creator (Almighty God). Sadly, some religionists seeking to appease the secularists have tried to integrate the theory into their religious beliefs using vague textual references―and by doing so, have only managed to add to the dismantling of religiosity and belief in a sole Creator of the universe who is deserving of worship and obedience. That is because these atheists and secular cosmologists have no room in their theoretical science (and universe) for angels, Paradise or Hell unless expressed metaphorically as a state of mind let alone that a Unique Lone Creator and God (Allah) should exist high above the universe, above all of the worlds, who controls His dominion and commands mankind to worship and obey Him. Wokeists, who have rejected traditional religion and belief in an Almighty God, embrace these made-up theories and tout them as indisputable facts!

The Theory of Evolution in a Few Words

The theory of evolution is an explanation for the diversity of life on Earth and the processes by which species came into existence and changed over time. The theory seeks to remove the innate belief and natural disposition in humans that there is an Almighty God and Creator who brought everything into existence just as He stated in the Revealed Scriptures that He sent to His Prophets: the Torah, Gospels, Psalms and the Qurān. This scientifically and intellectually flawed and fraudulent theory of evolution has led millions to reject the existence of God under the guise of “following science”. Darwinist evolution is now taught as an irrefutable fact in schools rather than a made-up story. The Western state school system does not teach that God created the universe and the creatures within it, and to suggest such a thing in science lessons is derided and ridiculed. The theory of evolution was formulated by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace in the 19th century. At its core, it proposes that all species share a common ancestry and have evolved through a gradual process of descent with modification over millions of years. Due to this, children are brainwashed in schools to believe religiously that humans are descended from apes without a shred of physical evidence to prove that one species has evolved into another. To convince young children and the masses, they show them illustrations of an ape gradually turning into a human! In essence, the key element of this fraud seeks to convince people that one species of animal can (over time) turn into another species through a process referred to as random selection. Random selection in the theory of evolution refers to the element of chance or randomness that influences which traits or characteristics are favoured or eliminated in a population.

I have left the image of the Descent of Man as it is purely for educational purposes so that the reader can see in very simple terms how Darwinists believed man evolved from a unicellular organism into a cluster of cells that led to sea creatures, then lizard-like land animals, then to apes and monkeys and finally to humans. This theoretical pseudo-science where it is claimed one species transforms into another cannot and has not been proven through the scientific method which involves the following stages: (1) Ask the question that needs an answer, (2) make your hypothesis, (2) test your hypothesis by conducting experiments, (3) make and record your observations, (4) analyse the results and measure them against your hypothesis, and draw conclusions, (5) present the findings to peers and people of intelligence and be prepared to be challenged. So where have Darwinian Evolutionists shown us (beyond these child-like illustrations) that species can or have evolved from one animal species into another? The answer is never. There is no proof for the idea of speciation. Just because animals (including humans) share similarities with other animals is not proof of speciation and random selection―it only proves the diversity of Allah’s creation. Allah has created animals with a head, feet, two eyes, hands, ears, skin, fur and genitals, but this is not proof [at all] that these creatures changed through random selection from one animal to another. Just because we see hundreds of different vehicles in the street (buses, cars, trucks, bikes and bicycles), it does not mean that some have autonomously evolved into others, let alone the belief that a car should evolve into an aeroplane, ship or hospital! Just as someone made these vehicles because it is not possible for them to have made themselves or come together by themselves, likewise, there is One who is greater than all things, the Eternal God who created and fashioned the universe and whatever is in it.

While we are on the topic of evolution, Charles Darwin believed that random selection favoured men over women. Darwin stated: “The chief distinction in the intellectual powers of the two sexes is shown by man’s attaining to a higher eminence, in whatever he takes up, than can woman, whether requiring deep thought, reason, or imagination, or merely the use of the senses and hands. If two lists were made of the most eminent men and women in poetry, painting, sculpture, music (inclusive both of composition and performance), history, science, and philosophy, with half a dozen names under each subject, the two lists would not bear comparison. We may also infer, from the law of the deviation from averages, so well illustrated by Mr. Galton, in his work on Hereditary Genius, that if men are capable of a decided pre-eminence over women in many subjects, the average of mental power in man must be above that of woman.” (The Descent of Man (1871) Volume II, p. 327.)

Then, he went on to say (pp. 328-329): “Thus, man has ultimately become superior to woman. It is, indeed, fortunate that the law of the equal transmission of characters to both sexes prevails with mammals; otherwise, it is probable that man would have become as superior in mental endowment to woman, as the peacock is in ornamental plumage to the peahen.” (Ref: aboutatheism.net Read also “A Muslim’s Guide to Naturalism, Atheism and Evolution” at aboutatheism.net)

The Sound Intellect Proves the Existence of our Lord and Creator (Allāh).

All of the created beings from the first of them to the last of them must have a Creator that brought them into existence—and it is not possible that these created things brought themselves into existence, and it is not possible that they came into existence by chance, randomly.

It is impossible for a soul to create itself because a thing cannot create itself—before its existence, it was absent and non-existent, so how can something that does not exist (and is not there) create itself?! Furthermore, it is not possible for a being to come into existence by chance or coincidence out of nowhere! That is because every occurrence must have for it someone that causes its occurrence—everything that exists must have a creator that brought it into existence.

The existence of the universe and the whole of creation in such an unprecedented and original manner—its harmony, arrangement, order, and coordination—the coherence between the causes and their effects and outcomes—and that which takes place between the bodies and beings within the universe all prohibits any thought (however remote) that they took place through random chance occurrences—of elements clashing against each other over millions of years! Furthermore, if that was the case, then who brought those elements into existence for them to be clashing in the first place?!

And that which occurs randomly by chance is not organised, coordinated, and ordered from the outset of its coming into existence—then how can it possibly be organised and ordered in its subsequent random and unguided state of existence?!

Therefore, it is not possible that the universe created itself—that is non-sensical—and it is impossible that it came about by chance to become this mighty and ordered universe—because that opposes sound intellect and requires believing in fantasies, and the abandonment of reason and rationale. So, the only reasonable conclusion is that the universe has an originator, creator, and maker (moojid) and He is Allāh, the Lord of the worlds, the sole Deity worthy of worship.

Allah mentioned this intellectual proof and indisputable evidence in His Book where He (the Most High) said:

أَمْ خُلِقُوا مِنْ غَيْرِ شَىْءٍ أَمْ هُمُ ٱلْخَـٰلِقُونَ ٣٥

“Were they created by nothing? Or were they themselves the creators?” (At-Tūr 52:35) Meaning they did not come into being without a creator, nor did they create themselves—so from this, it is proven that they have a creator, and He is Allah (the Mighty and Majestic). When Jubayr Ibn Muṭʿim (may Allah be pleased with him) heard the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) reciting the verses:

أَمْ خُلِقُوا مِنْ غَيْرِ شَىْءٍ أَمْ هُمُ ٱلْخَـٰلِقُونَ ٣٥
أَمْ خَلَقُوا ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ ۚ بَل لَّا يُوقِنُونَ ٣٦
أَمْ عِندَهُمْ خَزَآئِنُ رَبِّكَ أَمْ هُمُ ٱلْمُصَيْطِرُونَ ٣٧

“Were they created by nothing? Or were they themselves the creators? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, but they are sure of nothing! Or are with them the treasures of your Lord? Or are they the tyrants with the authority to do as they like?” (At-Tūr 52:35-37)

Jubayr heard these verses being recited when he was a pagan, and he later recalled: “My heart nearly flew out of my chest—and that was the first time that Faith (Imān) settled in my heart.” (Reported by al-Bukhārī).

And we can provide an example to further clarify this point:

If a person was to come and talk to you about a lofty palace surrounded by gardens with rivers flowing between them—and the palace was furnished with thrones and couches, beautified with various kinds of furnishing, drapes and ornaments. So, then this person informs you: “This splendid palace, its manicured gardens, its thrones and furnishings came into existence by themselves.” Or he informs you: “It came about randomly, by chance without a maker, falling into place with this ordered perfection.” You would immediately reject it and disbelieve his statement—you would consider his speech to be nonsense and insane.

So, after this, is it allowed for anyone to claim (by way of reason or rationale) that this vast universe with its earth, sky, planets, sun and stars and their states of perfect orbit and motion in an amazingly organised system of order all came about randomly, by chance or accident without an all-knowing, all-powerful, mighty creator and maker?! That is why Allah says to those who propound these false notions: “Nay, but they are sure of nothing!” (At-Tūr 52:36)

As for the believers, they are sure and certain, just as Allah has said:

ذَٰلِكَ ٱلْكِتَـٰبُ لَا رَيْبَ ۛ فِيهِ ۛ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ ٢
ٱلَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱلْغَيْبِ وَيُقِيمُونَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَـٰهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ ٣
وَٱلَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ وَمَآ أُنزِلَ مِن قَبْلِكَ وَبِٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ هُمْ يُوقِنُونَ ٤

“This is the Book (Qurān) about which there is no doubt, a guidance for the pious, those conscious of Allāh. Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them. Those who believe in what has been revealed to you, O Muḥammad, and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith].” (al-Baqarah 2:2-4)
(See Sharh Usoolil-Imān of Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Ṣālih al-ʿUthaimeen)

So, What is Woke Ideology?

Wokeism refers to a political and cultural movement that emphasizes awareness and activism surrounding social and political injustices. Wokeism has gained prominence in recent years, particularly within social media platforms and youth activism. It focuses on issues such as race, gender, sexuality, class, climate change, etc., aiming to convert people (especially young people) to Wokeism through raising awareness of these multiple causes and struggles, challenging power structures, and advocating for social change. It is a miserable ideology that teaches young people that humanity as a whole is malevolent and corrupt, and that there is no Creator Lord and God who sent Prophets with Revelation and guidance. 

They hit out hard against what they call ‘the patriarchy’. Patriarchy refers to a social system in which men hold primary power and dominance over women. It is a hierarchical structure that has been prevalent in many societies throughout history. So, patriarchy everywhere is the enemy that must be rooted out.

Every person with any semblance of intellect knows undeniably that men are physically stronger than women, more suited to heavy labour and fighting wars, and they can endure extreme situations that women would find near impossible. Men have greater muscle mass, bone density and endurance than women. So, in societies over thousands of years of human history, and right through the industrial (and technological) revolution of the past 250 years, men have typically occupied positions of authority, and women have by in large been under the care and protection of men. In all civilised societies, men have cared for, maintained and protected women from other men who have sought to take advantage of them, sexually abuse them, enslave them and use them. 

Responsible male authority operates at various levels: in the family, the community, and within larger societal institutions such as the army, police, etc. It manifests in different ways as cultural norms, natural laws, and customs that give authority to men while maintaining the rights and opportunities of women―and for good reason since men are expected to maintain, shelter and protect their women and families. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

كُلُّكُمْ رَاعٍ، وَكُلُّكُمْ مَسْؤولٌ عَنْ رَعِيَّتِهِ، فَالأَمِيرُ رَاعٍ وَهُوَ مَسْؤُولٌ، وَالرَّجُلُ رَاعٍ عَلَى أَهْلِهِ وَهُوَ مَسْؤُولٌ، وَالْمَرْأَةُ رَاعِيَةٌ عَلَى بَيْتِ زَوْجِهَا وَهِيَ مَسْؤُولَةٌ، أَلاَ وَكُلُّكُمْ رَاعٍ، وَكُلُّكُمْ مَسْؤُولٌ عَنْ رَعِيَّتِهِ‏.‏

All of you are shepherds and each of you is responsible for his flock. The ruler is the shepherd and is held responsible. The man is the shepherd over the people of his household and he is held responsible. A woman is the shepherdess of the house of her husband and she is held responsible. Each of you is a shepherd and each is responsible for his flock.” (Al-Adab al-Mufrad, no. 212, graded saheeh by Al-Albāni) And Allah said in His Book:

ٱلرِّجَالُ قَوَّٰمُونَ عَلَى ٱلنِّسَآءِ بِمَا فَضَّلَ ٱللَّهُ بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍۢ وَبِمَآ أَنفَقُوا مِنْ أَمْوَٰلِهِمْ ۚ فَٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتُ قَـٰنِتَـٰتٌ حَـٰفِظَـٰتٌ لِّلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ ٱللَّهُ ۚ

“Men are in charge of women as their maintainers and protectors by right of what Allāh has given one over the other and because of what the men spend for maintenance from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in the husband’s absence what Allāh would have them guard…” (An-Nisā: 23)

I have heard Wokeist online social justice warriors who ascribe themselves to Islam claim that these narrations are being taken out of context by Muslim men! These are people who know nothing of Islam, or the Shareeʿah, or any of the sciences of the religion and have never studied the foundations of Islam. Furthermore, they have no ability to speak about the intent of the Lord of the Worlds.

Wokeists cry out that traditional patriarchal structures perpetuate old gender roles and expectations where men are expected to be assertive, strong, and independent, while women are often expected to be submissive, nurturing, and focused on domestic responsibilities. But the fact is that this order is natural and has kept human societies in a state of relative balance and order. Wokeists claim that patriarchy is not a system that all men benefit from equally as it can also create rigid expectations and pressures for men to conform to traditional gender roles (i.e., stops them from identifying as women!). Therefore, a prime objective of Wokeism is the dismantling of patriarchies (i.e., male authority and strength and their sense of manliness) that have been present throughout all of human history. So, it is no wonder that radical feminism is the common thread that runs through all Wokeist activists.

Radical Feminism in a Few Words

Radical feminism is a branch of feminist ideology that emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It seeks to challenge and dismantle the patriarchy which is seen as the root cause of women’s oppression and inequality in society. They view male authority to be unfair, morally wrong and evil. That’s where Islam becomes a problem for feminists because built into Islamic Law is the role of the father who is the guardian over his daughters, the husband who is in charge of the household and the breadwinner, the Imām (a man) who leads the congregational prayers and the ruler who a strong man who governs the nation. Anyone who embraces radical feminist doctrine has to abandon, ignore or reject the Revelation of Allah, the Most High. 

So, feminists believe that patriarchy (a society where men have authority over women and are responsible for them) is a system of power that not only benefits men but also perpetuates various forms of oppression, such as sexism, misogyny, and gender-based violence. All of this is of course nonsense because in Islam (at least), women are expected to live their lives as ordained by Allah―they are given rights that are due to them from those around them, whether they are mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, etc.

(Image: The derogatory term “simp” is often used to describe an emasculated man who overly praises, caters to, is subservient to, and seeks the approval of women, especially without receiving much in return. Real men simps will champion the feminist cause because waving the flag may improve their access to sex.)

Key Principles and Beliefs of Radical Feminism:


1. Gender as a social construct: Radical feminists believe that gender is not biologically determined but rather a social construct created and enforced by society and dominated by men for thousands of years. They go as far as to say that there is no difference between the sexes beyond their reproductive organs or genitalia. So, since men are capable of taking multiple female sexual partners, then there is no reason why women also cannot have multiple male sexual partners. Radical feminists live miserable, promiscuous and loveless lives―they don’t marry because that would ‘trap them’ in a relationship where a woman will be expected to serve her husband, get pregnant and give birth to children who she’ll have to raise! Every third-wave radical-feminist’s nightmare!
2. Patriarchy (male authority in society) as the root cause of oppression: Radical feminists view patriarchy as the primary system of power that perpetuates women’s subordination. They believe that patriarchy operates through various institutions and societal structures such as marriage, family, religion, etc. They are vehemently anti-traditional and anti-religious―consequently, the Muslim woman’s hijāb is viewed as a symbol of oppression, as is polygyny (a man taking up to four wives). They cannot tolerate the idea that a woman should obey her father or husband, or that she should save her virginity until marriage.  
3. Radical feminists challenge the idea that there are inherent and essential differences between men and women. Even if one of these radical feminists does decide to marry, know for sure that the “man” she marries has been completely emasculated, i.e., stripped of his male role and identity, and stripped of his masculinity and manliness. 
4. Intersectionality: Radical feminism teaches its followers about the intersections of gender with other forms of oppression, such as race, class, sexuality, and ability. Radical feminism has strongly influenced the changes seen in Western school curriculums over the years. For this reason, we have seen over the last 20 years a huge shift in attitudes and ideas that have brought Western society to its demise.

Warped Equality

So, Feminism seeks to eliminate the differences between the sexes under the often-repeated Wokeist and LGBTQ+ mantra that ‘gender is a social construct’. This belief maintains that gender (male/female) is not determined by biology but rather shaped by cultural, social, and environmental factors. It also implies that there is a range of gender identities beyond just male and female, and individuals may identify as non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, or transgender, among others. 

To understand this mentality, we need to explore the reasoning or insanity behind it. Postmodern social constructionists challenge essentialist notions that assume fixed, inherent meanings or qualities in categories such as gender, race, and identity. They argue that these categories are constructed through language and discourse and are subject to change over time. With this in hand, these Wokeist radical neo-Marxists claim that each of the following categories operate independently of each other and should be treated as such:

1. Biological Sex:
This is what a person is born as, i.e., male or female. A male baby has defined male physical features and a female baby has defined female physical features. For this reason, the midwife or doctor will say to the mother, “You’ve given birth to a boy,” or “You’ve given birth to a girl”. And this has been the method of determination of sex/gender throughout the history of mankind.

2. Gender:
Traditionally and throughout human history, gender was defined by your biological sex. However, postmodern social constructionists came along with their neo-Marxist, Wokeist co-religionists and preached that “Gender is fluid; it is a spectrum; you can choose to identify as whatever you want or feel”.
So, a biological male can identify as a woman and a biological female can identify as a man, or either one can identify as non-binary (i.e., neither male nor female) and so on across their delusional gender spectrum.
The contemporary understanding of gender as a social and cultural construct separate from biological sex emerged in the mid-20th century and then evolved through subsequent decades with the rise of feminism, loose morals, homosexuality, and the availability of the contraceptive pill and access to free state-funded abortions which led to increased female promiscuity and the “sex without consequences” culture.
To speak with other than this fraudulent ideology, and to warn against it leads to people being “cancelled” on social media platforms and forced out of their jobs, fired, promotions denied and ostracised.

3. Sexual Proclivity or Orientation:
This refers to sexual attraction to individuals of a specific gender or genders. Wokeists believe that these sexual orientations are on a spectrum that includes the following:
(i) The traditional, normal heterosexual (a straight relationship between an adult biological male and an adult biological female).
(ii) Homosexuals: Gay and lesbians.
(iii) Bisexuals: Individuals who are attracted to others of their own sex and the opposite sex.
(iv) Pansexuals: Individuals who are attracted to people regardless of their gender, emphasizing sexual attraction beyond the binary concept of gender!
(v) Asexuals: Individuals who experience little to no sexual attraction to any gender, but may sometimes engage in sexual activity.
(vi) Queer: A term that has been reclaimed by the LGBTQ+ church as an umbrella term for various non-heteronormative sexual orientations and gender identities.
…and the list goes on and on.

4. Gender Expression:
This is the manner in which a person expresses a gender identity, usually through their conduct, behaviour, outward appearance, and dress. So, this could be a biological male who behaves in a feminine manner, puts on a wig, wears women’s underwear and dresses, applies makeup and wears high heels. Or it could be a woman who carries herself like a man, behaving in a masculine manner, wearing men’s clothes and concealing her feminine traits and features.

To treat each of these four independently of each other is one of the biggest frauds perpetrated by the ideologues of Wokeism and their followers. Their warped mentality contradicts the innate disposition (fitrah) of humans, the intellect, the Revealed Books, reality and the history of human experience. Let me explain why:

  • Biological males grow up to be boys and men; they are (almost) entirely heterosexual (i.e., sexually attracted to biological females); they (almost as a whole) behave in a masculine manner displaying manly traits while avoiding feminine traits; and they wear the clothing traditionally worn by men. 
  • Biological females grow up to be girls and women; they are (almost) entirely heterosexual (i.e., sexually attracted to biological males); they (almost as a whole) behave in a feminine manner displaying feminine traits avoiding butch and masculine traits; and they wear clothing traditionally worn by women.

This simple, self-evident experience of human history proves that biological sex, gender, sexual orientation and gender expression are almost entirely binary: male (boy, man, masculine, heterosexual) and female (girl, woman, feminine, heterosexual). It is only at the very extremes of human behaviour―due to social conditioning, the prevalence of immorality, and the normalising of unnatural/abnormal behaviours such as homosexuality―that you will find any departure from these norms in humanity.

What I have clarified has been the norm for hundreds and thousands of years which shows that these traits are hardwired into the sexes (in the core of their very being) and are not social constructs forced on society by an oppressive patriarchy!

The Intersex Bandwagon

This refers to anomalies and abnormalities within humanity where an organism has physical characteristics intermediate between a true male and a true female of its species. The condition usually results from extra chromosomes or a hormonal abnormality during embryological development. [2] So, a baby is born with male and female biological characteristics. The true prevalence of intersex is seen to be about only 0.018% of all babies born. [3] This means that 99.982% of all babies born are either biologically male or female. It is truly disingenuous (indeed fraudulent) to claim that humans are biologically a spectrum of sexes due to intersex (or hermaphrodite) babies.

To drive home this idea, Wokeist doctrine states: The terms “gender” and “sex” refer to different aspects of a person’s identity: 

Sex refers to the biological characteristics of an individual, typically categorized as male or female. These biological traits are determined by reproductive organs and people are assigned a sex at birth based on the appearance of their external genitalia. Throughout the sum total of human history (until the last few decades of postmodern constructionist insanity), mankind has only ever classified births as a baby boy or a baby girl by what they saw in the physical features of the newborn child because God showed mankind the way to distinguish between a man and woman (male and female). Upon the birth of Mary (may Allah be pleased with her), Allah stated in His Book:

فَلَمَّا وَضَعَتْهَا قَالَتْ رَبِّ إِنِّى وَضَعْتُهَآ أُنثَىٰ وَٱللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا وَضَعَتْ وَلَيْسَ ٱلذَّكَرُ كَٱلْأُنثَىٰ ۖ

“But when she delivered Mary, her mother said, ‘My Lord, I have delivered a female.’ And Allāh was most knowing of what she delivered, and the male is not like the female.” (Aali ʿImran 3: 36) So, how did the mother of Mary know that she had given birth to a girl? She knew it was a girl distinct from a boy because Allah has made it known to the creation that there is a difference between the two. So, was the mother of Mary a victim of the patriarchy?! Allah’s refuge is sought from the evil-doers who ascribe such madness to our pious predecessors. Furthermore, if a baby was born with obscure, undefined or mixed male and female genitalia, it was seen as an unnatural, abnormal anomaly.

Gender, according to Wokeist doctrine, is a social and cultural construct that encompasses the roles, behaviours, expectations, and identities that societies ascribe to individuals based on their perceived sex. Wokeist belief states that gender goes beyond biology and reflects the ways societies define and understand masculinity, femininity, and various gender roles. So, some individuals identify as the gender they were assigned at birth (which they refer to as cisgender), while others may identify with a gender that differs from the sex they were born with; these people who re-assign themselves are called transgender people.

(Image: This is homework given to a 7-year-old Muslim girl in a British state school.)

These are the deceptive ideas that have seeped into Western society and culture to the point that any opposition to this doctrine is considered to be intolerant hate speech that is anti-science, sexist, transphobic, homophobic, fascist and even racist! 

As Muslims, we are commanded to hold fast to our beliefs, ethics and morals regardless of the avalanche of opposition that goes against the Qur’an and Prophetic Sunnah. In a time when Western Christianity has succumbed to these new-age Wokeist zealots, Islam remains the only religion, the only fortress that has stood firm against this madness and it will continue to do so, and remain unharmed by those who oppose it and forsake it, or sell their religion for worldly desires and ambitions.

Wokeism appeals to young people, the poorly educated who can be indoctrinated – who then religiously follow these neo-Marxist, godless Wokeists. So Wokeism has an army of youth who awaken each morning ready to fight ‘the oppressive patriarchy’ and change society. The underlying objective is to challenge and dismantle systems that uphold religion and traditional values. 

Woke activists advocate for greater inclusivity and representation for people who follow their worldview in education, media, and politics―in a nutshell, they want to be the ones making the laws and indoctrinating innocent children in state schools so they can have an endless supply of Wokeists for future generations! They need homosexuals, trans-people, radical feminists, pro-abortionists, and climate change warriors in influential and leading positions in schools, universities, mainstream media, law enforcement, and entertainment. This would enable them to further exert their influence and bring about widespread societal change, and then export that to the rest of the ‘unenlightened world’. And this is what is taking place right now with very little opposition.

Wokeism seeks to stifle any opposition and to police language and behaviour, and much of it has now passed into law. To make it last for generations to come, they must continue to attack and dismantle the traditional family structure and religious values. Most Western governments have already cowered in front of the onslaught; the legacy news media openly supports them, so today you see Wokeism permeating every sphere of life.

They advocate for the acceptance of gender fluidity and individual choice, endorsing sex change surgery as a preferred option for young people who were born in the ‘wrong’ body. They challenge what they see as societal constructs by deeming terms like man, woman, boy, and girl as oppressive and patriarchal. Vigorously championing transgender rights, Wokeism also advocates for state-funded sex-change surgery, chemical ‘castration’ for teenage boys who want to be girls!

Wokeism (which embraces radical feminism) rejects gender-specific roles such as motherhood for women and leadership for men, even asserting that men can menstruate and conceive (i.e., women who identify as men), therefore enforcing the use of terms such as ‘pregnant people’ instead of ‘pregnant women’!

Wokeism normalises homosexual relationships and views sex between same-sex people as natural and normal. It calls women to sexual liberation and considers promiscuity (having numerous sexual partners) as empowering, so it is not unusual today for a woman who reaches the age of 30 to have fornicated with as many as 30 men and to have had a handful of abortions and several morning-after pills. Through this, the traditional marriage between a man and woman has eroded; as is the stay-at-home mother and bread-winning father―they are perceived as components of an oppressive and ancient patriarchy. Wokeism sees abortion as an absolute right under that oft-repeated mantra of ‘my body, my choice’, regardless of the baby’s age in the womb of its mother, up until the time it is due to be delivered. The baby in the womb is nothing more than a clump of cells having no right to life until it comes out of its mother’s womb. 

They fight for the cause of radical feminism and LGBTQ+ insisting that their sexual proclivities be celebrated for a whole month each year in every Western country; which involves the public display of their adopted identities in ‘Pride Street Festivals’ alongside the replacing of national flags with ‘Rainbow Flags’ and insisting that every school in the country focuses on the ‘Pride Month’. [4]

Wokeists also believe that climate change is the biggest threat facing humanity; and that black people’s rights can only be defended under the Wokeist, neo-Marxist banner of BLM (Black Lives Matter) and other similar misguided, corrupt organisations.

Wokeism Rejects Religion and God’s Commandments

These ideologues of Wokeism do not believe in a Hereafter wherein they will be judged, nor in a sole Lord and Creator who has sent Prophets and Books calling mankind to His worship and to follow His Laws (though among their ranks you may find some deluded and ignorant Muslims who are flag-wavers for their misguided insane cause). They follow the Darwinian theory of evolution propounding the myth that mankind evolved from apes to humans; and in the self-creation and order of the Universe. It is these ideologies that children are taught wholesale in schools in the West and are propagated by the legacy news media and mainstream political parties in most Western nations.

So, these secularist, atheistic, liberals are following a religion and dogma of their own making without recourse to revelation. They champion the rights of every type of misguidance, immorality and sexual deviation―even genital mutilation of young people in order to alter the body that Allah gave them but outright they will not uphold the rights of Allah and His Religion, completely disregarding His Law while He (the Mighty and Majestic) is their Creator. Allah calls them to worship Him in His saying:

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ ٱعْبُدُوا۟ رَبَّكُمُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُمْ وَٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ ٢١
ٱلَّذِى جَعَلَ لَكُمُ ٱلْأَرْضَ فِرَٰشًۭا وَٱلسَّمَآءَ بِنَآءًۭ وَأَنزَلَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءًۭ فَأَخْرَجَ بِهِۦ مِنَ ٱلثَّمَرَٰتِ رِزْقًۭا لَّكُمْ ۖ فَلَا تَجْعَلُوا۟ لِلَّهِ أَندَادًۭا وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ ٢٢

“O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous and pious. He who made for you the earth a bed spread out and the sky a ceiling and sent down from the sky, rain and brought forth thereby fruits as provision for you. So do not attribute to Allāh equals in worship while you know [that there is nothing similar to Him].” (Al-Baqarah: 21-22)

They talk of human rights, but what are human rights according to them? According to them, human rights are only for the godless ones, open sinners, sexual deviants, criminals, and oppressors who turn away from right-guidance and decency. So, this is the human [whose rights need protecting] according to them—those who are disobedient to Allah, who do not worship Him and deny His very existence. As for the Muslim, the monotheist, worshipper of Allah who fears his Lord and Creator and lives a pious life, does not fornicate, does not drink, does not believe in the false religion of Darwinism, etc., then this is not the human they are referring to who needs protecting. The human right that is most deserving of protection is the man who demands that he be called a woman, who dresses as a woman, who has surgery to have his genitals mutilated and then wishes to enter primary schools dressed as a ‘drag queen’ to indoctrinate children into the LGBTQ+ ideology.

As for believers in God, His Religion and His commandments, those who live moral lives, believe in the importance of the family, and traditional values―in their eyes, Muslims are extremists, backward, and intolerant. Evangelical Wokeist Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) want laws passed against those who stand up against them, and their wicked ideas, and those who uphold religious values. Wokesits demand the forced indoctrination of children in the state school system—and they want religious teachings and morals to be cast to one side. Allah (the Most High) described such people in His Book:

يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطْفِـُٔوا نُورَ ٱللَّهِ بِأَفْوَٰهِهِمْ وَٱللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِۦ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ ٱلْكَـٰفِرُونَ ٨

“They intend to extinguish the Light of Allah (i.e., the Religion of Islam) with their mouths. But Allah will bring His Light to perfection even though the disbelievers hate it.” (As-Saf: 8)

They want to extinguish that which cannot be extinguished, because the worship of Allah will remain, the believers will endure, and the Message of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) will be preserved till the descent of Jesus (peace be upon him):

هُوَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُۥ بِٱلْهُدَىٰ وَدِينِ ٱلْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُۥ عَلَى ٱلدِّينِ كُلِّهِۦ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ ٱلْمُشْرِكُونَ ٩

“He it is Who has sent His Messenger Muhammad with guidance and the religion of truth to make it victorious over the religions even though the pagans hate it.” (As-Saf: 9) And this is why you are seeing so many people in the Western lands entering into Islam with astonishing numbers―because Islam remains the fortress of monotheism, faith and morality without equal. Just look and see how many ‘influencers’ on social media are turning to Islam or praising Islamic values, may Allah guide them to the way of the Salaf which is the true Path of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and his Companions, the Path of Salafiyyah

Oppression of Women in the Name of Feminism, Equality and Empowerment

The noble scholar, Shaikh Sālih Al-Fawzan said: “They call to the liberation of women, and what they intend by that is that she leaves her home uncovered, semi-clad and without her hijāb. That she should leave as a sinner, disobedient to Allah, and to her husband and guardian” —i.e., that she focuses on her career rather than marriage, family and raising children; that she goes wherever she pleases and sleeps with whoever she pleases notching up numerous sexual partners. All along, she is told that this is freedom, liberation, and advancement of women’s rights.

By the time she reaches her late 30s, she is unmarried (or divorced), sad, lonely, childless (or her children have abandoned her), she has been used by men and left unwanted… and she only finds fleeting pleasure in the odd one-night stand, purchasing more designer handbags, shoes and possibly the comfort of a pet cat and TV to watch each night before bed. And they call this liberation and freedom! This woman is sad and unfulfilled but has realised too late. 

Many women (in the West), as they grow older, experience feelings of regret about their choice to pursue a career instead of settling down, getting married, and having children. They may feel a sense of longing for the traditional path of family life, where they could have experienced the joys of marriage and parenthood (and becoming a happy grandmother). Younger women may not feel this way because they are indoctrinated from an early age at school, and they encounter societal pressures or personal desires that lead them to seek fun, fashion and the approaches of men rather than marriage; they want to pursue careers, and chase after money rather than settle down and build a family; they want to follow what other young women are doing on YouTube, Tik-Tok and Instagram. The regrets come when it’s too late!

Women were described as fragile vessels by the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him): Al-Barā Ibn Mālik used to sing to drive the camels of the men and Anjashah would sing to drive the camels of the women, and he had a nice voice. So the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said to him: “O Anjashah! Be gentle when driving the camels that carry the fragile vessels.” (Al-Adab Al-Mufrad of Al-Bukhāri, no. 1264, declared saheeh by Al-Albānī)

Shaikh Al-Fawzān stated: “Islam, on the other hand, came with respect for the woman, to uphold her rights, to protect her and preserve her honour. The unbelievers [and liberals] come and oppose this. They want to waste her and bring her loss. So that her honour is lost, her manners are lost, her religion is lost and her body is wasted—she becomes a cheap commodity that is traded between the wolves from among the men” who pass her from one to another, and when she reaches old age, and her body is of no desire to them, she is cast into a small dwelling [or a care home] to live lost, tired, without a loving family and left broken―we ask Allah to guide them. She has no one to care for her nor children and grandchildren who are willing to live with her and love her as an honourable woman deserves―ultimately she does not want to be a burden and has nothing to live for, so she opts for euthanasia―and Allah’s aid is sought from reaching such a low point. This is the liberation of women according to their values which they call Muslim women to. Many Muslims have been deceived by this call—and this idea has been carried by some wicked ones in our ranks who have evil intentions towards our Ummah. (See Al-Khutub 5/19-20) But, we already know that women are not like men. 

فَلَمَّا وَضَعَتْهَا قَالَتْ رَبِّ إِنِّى وَضَعْتُهَآ أُنثَىٰ وَٱللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا وَضَعَتْ وَلَيْسَ ٱلذَّكَرُ كَٱلْأُنثَىٰ ۖ

“But when she delivered her, she said, ‘My Lord, I have delivered a female.’ And Allāh was most knowing of what she delivered, and the male is not like the female.” (Aali ʿImran 3: 36)

In Islam, a woman lives an honourable life, protected and secure from harm—she lives as a wife, as a sister, as a member of the family, treated with respect—she is nurturer of the family, a shepherdess over the family home; she is trusted with the wealth and honour of her husband. Allah (the Most High) stated concerning the Muslim woman:

ٱلرِّجَالُ قَوَّٰمُونَ عَلَى ٱلنِّسَآءِ بِمَا فَضَّلَ ٱللَّهُ بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍۢ وَبِمَآ أَنفَقُوا مِنْ أَمْوَٰلِهِمْ ۚ فَٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتُ قَـٰنِتَـٰتٌ حَـٰفِظَـٰتٌ لِّلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ ٱللَّهُ ۚ

“Men are in charge of women as their maintainers and protectors by right of what Allāh has given one over the other and because of what the men spend for maintenance from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in the husband’s absence what Allāh would have them guard…” (An-Nisā: 23)

The irreligious, secular, Wokeist unbelievers do not want this—they want to strip the woman of this respect, this honour and these rights. They want to cast her into the traps of wicked men who use her for their own pleasures in unlawful ways and then discard her.

These feminist, Wokeist, neo-Marxist groups organise conferences and events calling their ideology and devise curriculums at universities promoting this falsehood, so be warned.

Learn Islam, know its values, and be grateful for Allah’s immense blessings upon you. Islam is the only fortress that is still holding out, so remain within its walls. Allah stated:

وَإِن تَصْبِرُوا وَتَتَّقُوا لَا يَضُرُّكُمْ كَيْدُهُمْ شَيْـًٔا ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ بِمَا يَعْمَلُونَ مُحِيطٌ ١٢٠

“And if you are patient and fear Allah [and show obedience to Him], their plot will not harm you at all. Indeed, Allāh is encompassing of what they do.” (Aali ʿImrān: 120)

I finish by saying that indeed all praise is for Allah, Lord of the Worlds; and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the noble Prophet, his family, his Companions and all who follow him until the Day of Resurrection.

    A very detailed article, an audio version is also needed for those of us whom Allah has tested with dyslexia. White Privilege is also something wokeist promote; you have call out the people that call to it for other reasons; like Shadeed Mohammed. May Allah aza wa jel preserve you and continue to increase your knowledge and benefiting the people

    • Bārakallāhu feek… may Allah aid you, cure you and reward you for you patience with dyslexia.
      People of Sunnah need to be cautious when Wokeists use race to incite communities against each other. This is what is referred to as race-baiting. Britannica Dictionary definition of RACE–BAITING is the unfair use of statements about race to try to influence the actions or attitudes of a particular group of people. As Muslims, we understand and combat racism according to Sharee’ah… Here’s an article on the topic: How should we respond to the unjust killing of African-Americans by the police in the USA?

  2. Jazakallahu Khairan – I can trust that whenever Pride Month comes around, and I am ambushed by these ideologies in school and elsewhere, I can read this article and remind myself of the true insanity of these liberals.

    I recommend others to do the same.

    If you are stuck living in the west, unable to make hijrah, you can never get enough of a reminder of the reality of the derelict, dystopian, immoral society you live in.

    The Deciever, the shaytaan is constantly pulling us towards destruction, beautifiying evil deeds and tricking us to procrastinate about rectifying our situation and strengthening our iman by worshipping Allah and surrounding ourselves with the Salafis, the people of sunnah.

    Make time to listen/attend the lessons and conferences, you will gain immense benefit.

    May Allah reward and increase our Ustaadh and all the da’ees upholding salafiyyah, upholding our religion.

    Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu
