Al Sisi and the religion of ISIS

I wrote in Arabic many articles attacking ISIS and its Wahabi Sunny religion, proving that Al Azhar is keeping this religion of ISIS, defending it, using its influence in persecuting us because we prove the contradiction between Wahabism and the religion of Islam. I called the fanatic  leaders of Al Azhar ( The Sheikh of ISIS ) . I made these articles one book published in our site in Arabic under the title : ( The doomed religion of ISIS ).

I kept sending call of reform to the Egyptian president ( Al Sisi ) through my Arabic article . The last one was published on  Sunday , January 4, 2015 :

Under the title :(On President Al-Sisi’s call for a religious revolution )

I said: (We People of Quran have started the religious revolution since 1979 to date.

Making the religious revolution a reality cannot happen without Al-AlQuran.

1.       President Al-Sisi’s confronted Al-Azhar’s religious leaders with a notable call for religious revolution during the annual celebration of on Profit Mohamed’s birth. His direct call, in front of the media, echoes earlier calls for religious reforms which Al-Azhar responded to by insisting not to attack ISIL.

2.       Also notable in President’s Al-Sisi’s address is his religious tone of believing in responsibility in front of Allah on Judgment Day. In his recent address he used the same tone and said he will be their litigant in front of Allah on Judgment Day.

To that, I say:

1.       God Almighty does not burden any soul beyond its capacity. Did the President, with all the powers he has, do his capacity to reform religious thought? How would Al-Sisi defend himself on Judgment Day before Allah, for not doing what he could have done?  

We are talking here about what is possible to be done in reforming Al-Azhar and religious discourse. We have written here about this lot, and sent him messages on it. It is clear that he knows the writer of this article and has quoted him in a research paper that he wrote while he was a graduate military student in America. Also, no one who has worked in the intelligence could claim not knowing about the Quranists and their struggle and suffering. They have been monitored by state agencies during four waves of arrests and they continue to banned from appearing on Egyptian media. However, they represent the true thought that could be that very same religious revolution Al-Sisi has called for. Discriminate against, persecuting, and ignoring Ahl-Alquran and their reformist writings, under President Al-Sisi rule, is a great contradiction for his call for religious reform.)>

I also said : ( President Al-Sisi, the most powerful man in Egypt now, so far has not done his best or what he could to renew and develop the religious discourse and to express the highest values of Islam; which are peace, justice, freedom, compassion and human dignity. He could still have the chance of doing it, if he does the following:

2.1   Lifting the ban on people of Ahl-Alquran, the publication of their books, which represent a real religious revolution, and paving the way for them to participate in peaceful religious reform.

2.2   Abolishing laws that shackle freedom of thought, opinion and peaceful assembly, and giving amnesty to political prisoners and prisoners of conscience.

2.3   Isolating Al-Azhar religious leaders and the rest of ISIL religious leaders. They are worthy of being sacked, according to the law of Al-Azhar, because they refuse to renew religious thought and deny the Islamic values of freedom, peace, justice and mercy. They also show an attitude that lessens their stature as Al-Azhar scholars.

2.4   Appointing reformist professors at Al-Azhar University to replace those who support ISIL and forming a specialized committee to reform the law of Al-Azhar and its curriculum. We have a whole proposal on this that we featured more than once.)

Finally:

1 – Al-Sisi is keeping the same ugly state of Mubarak. It is the same military, police, state with its corruption and its ugly legislations.

2- In response to a new religious reformist awakening, and in an attempt to dismantle Muslim Brotherhood, he is playing with words in the field of religious reform while keeping the same corrupted sheiks in their rank. He talks about reform in a gradual way while it is a must to make real reform immediately.

3 = Let us wait until the middle of this year to see the real answer.
