Malaysian mufti warns: don’t fight Islam with reason

“To argue with a man who has renounced the use of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead.”
― Thomas Paine

Avoid intellect, logic when it comes to Islam, Perak mufti tells Cabinet 

From the Malay Mail, thanks to Andrew Bolt


Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria reminded federal ministers yesterday against issuing statements based on logic and intellect when it comes to Islam, claiming that the intellect is influenced by desires and subsequently susceptible to the devil.

In a report carried by Malay daily Sinar Harian, the Perak mufti also warned Muslim ministers against deriding and belittling Islamic laws, as they risk breaching their oath of loyalty that was made in the name of Allah.

“I advise them not to go overboard. Islam is based on faith… Don’t make any remarks based on the intellect or logic because they are laws of Allah,” Harussani said. 

But here’s the problem:  if you can’t settle differences through reason, only force is left.

  1. I can see both sides of this one, but he certainly has a valid point to make here: Arguing with a fascist is a dead end. You may argue to draw the center away from the fascists. But when a man is holding a gun to your head and simply waiting for the order to shoot you, the argument method is weak.

  2. Just like all religions, logic and sense and reality and truth have nothing to do with them.

    All religions are founded on dogma and delusion, every single one of them. They are all bullshit.

    islam is the worst, but there is very little difference to the rest of them otherwise.

    Invisible sky daddy baloney, the lot of them.
