Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

By Mufti Z. Bhayat


The West is making a vigorous effort to promote their libertine culture and values upon the nations of the world. To this end, they are employing all the resources available at their disposal. One such powerful medium is education, via the Western, secular educational system. In order to promote it’s liberal culture on sex, the West introduced the concept of sex “education” (Corruption) as an important element of the educational curriculum. Through this, it hopes to imbue the coming generations with its corrupt values on sex from a very tender age. Corrupt and perverted values on sex are being foisted onto the minds of the unwary victims in the name of sex “education”. Young, impressionable minds are being slowly corrupted with debased Western sexual values at secular institutions under the guise of “education”. Tangible examples of such degenerate sexual values is encouragement towards sexual “experimentation” in the form of masturbation, dating, viewing pornographic material, premarital sex, depraved sexual acts and practices and casting aside modesty and natural inhibitions. These are the anti-thesis of all that which Islam stands for. The danger this poses to the Muslims, especially the Muslim youth, is indescribable, as it shakes the very foundations of their faith, their morality and their value systems. Yet many parents and concerned citizens of society are blissfully unaware of the magnitude of the problem. If this trend continues unchecked, the tidal wave of depravity will certainly destroy the morality of the Islamic society. Every member of society has to play a meaningful role in stanching this rot and decay that is sure to devastate our present and coming generations.

May Allah protect one and all from this avalanche of pollution. Aameen.
