Secularism


Last Modified:  22 Aug 2011 12:42  GMT

Secularism is best represented by the separation of church and state. It is a belief that religion should not in any way have a function in the running of a state. This applies especially to the public education systems and curricula.

Islam promotes and propagates peace. It values religious tolerance and harmony much more than other religions. Michael H. Hart in his book “The 100: A Ranking of the most Influential Persons in History” ranks the prophet of Islam at number one. Hart asserts that Muhammad (SAW) was supremely successful in both the religious and secular realms.

The word ‘Islam’ stands for ‘Peace’ or ‘Submission’. A Muslim believes in one, sole, incomparable God, he believes in the revealed scriptures, in the Prophets through whom his revelation were made to mankind and in the Day of Judgment. However Islam is not a religion that imposes its rule.

Islam has an important political component that most Muslims support completely. The phenomenon that was alien to Muslim culture, in fact, was the period in which Arab countries attempted to establish nationalistic governments that tried to rely on a sense of patriotism without a religious basis (especially in the 50s and the 60s.)

The opposition of many Muslims to secularism in any form can be very strong. Historically Islam has been an important part of a nation's government, politics, and law and has not been limited purely to the Mosque.

Secularism is based on keeping religion out of public affairs. It implies that the proper place for God is inside one's own heart and not in government. The rise of secularism in Western society can arguably be traced to a backlash against the extreme practices of Christian missioners and the oppressive nature of their government of countries conquered by Christian societies.
