lā ʾilāha ʾillallāh (لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول الله)
A phrase I’ve heard oft-repeated by Muslims after tragic occurrances of one kind or another and the contradiction never fails to bemuse me.
Am I understanding this right: e.g., your adolescent child dies as wartime ‘collateral damage’ so you chant and give praise to some fictitious entity who is conspcious by ‘His’ absence just when you would have needed ‘His’ devine intervention most? :dubious:
Am I missing something here, or is herein essentially why Muslims – issuing from that, the Middle-East – are in such a mire of evolutionary stagnation after giving the world so much culturally for so long?
NB: I’m not fishing for an ‘interventionist Vs passive god’ debate; just a deeper understanding of humanoid delusion, the inculcation thereof and how ingrained it can become.
