The Evil of Good Deeds and Good Thoughts

After the Mumbai jihad there was a response of “Do good deeds.” The Jews of Chabad (the sect that had its members tortured to death) asked for Jews to do “a mitzvah,” good works. A yoga group that had some of its members killed believes that love will triumph. Then Deepak Chopra weighed in with his “think good thoughts” campaign. Chopra’s effort has the “magic” of if a million people pledge to think good thoughts the world will change for peace. All of these efforts may be summarized by one phrase: Be Nice.

I have nothing against being nice. Who does? But is that enough? What happened at Mumbai was evil. Any response must be aimed at preventing it from happening again. How can Being Nice prevent evil from recurring?

There is a strain of New Age, hippy, pacifist, and utopian thought which believes just that. Cue the Beatles, All We Need is Love. The Be Nice theory raises a question: if good deeds and good thoughts will prevent another Mumbai, then does that mean that the rabbi and his pregnant wife, who were tortured to death, had just not done enough good works? Is a 9-year-old girl who is raped just not nice enough?

Pacifists say that you should never respond to violence, because that just creates more violence. We should never use pain to correct. War is never the answer. These theories don’t seem to take into account that learning how to avoid pain usually consists in remembering what led to the pain, so we don’t do that again. Pain can and will change people’s behavior. Pain works.

But, the first step in resisting jihad is not violence or war, but education. The Be Nice people deny that Islamic jihad even exists. Therefore, there is nothing to learn. The Be Nice people will never even use any language that would point towards Islam. Be Nice people are doctrinal deniers. The real Islam has nothing to do with jihad, and therefore there is nothing to learn.

When the Be Nice people speak they never refer to any Islamic doctrine or history. If they speak of doctrine it is about American foreign policy. Internal motivation is missing from the “gunmen.” It is as though they only respond to us. They don’t have an ideology, just reactions. Or maybe they were poor, economically impoverished.

The reason that the Be Nice people do not want to learn about political Islam is that they have too many suspicions about the truth and know that they don’t have the courage to face the reality. So it is better to deny that an Islamic doctrine exists and ignore it. Then when the history and doctrine are pointed out, they hint that we are bigots, we are worse than the jihadists, that such talk is offensive and should not be tolerated. To quote Islamic doctrine has been defined as bigotry and not nice.

Being nice, in and of itself, is not wrong. What is wrong is the lack of balance. Being nice is feminine. We need both compassion and wisdom. Compassion by itself leads to idiot compassion. There are some things that love can’t do. We must have an approach that it practical and includes wisdom.

We need being nice as a carrot, but we must have a stick. We have already had a culture respond to Islam with good thoughts. Part of Alexander the Great’s army settled down Asia and became Buddhists. They created the Ghandarvian Buddhist culture, a high point in human history. The Ghandarvian Greek Buddhists created the first Buddhist art and sculpture. When Islam invaded they had no army, only good thoughts. Alexander the Great’s best soldiers had become absolute pacifists. After the jihad, we do not find a single Buddhist in what is Afghanistan today. Good thoughts and good works are not enough in the face of violence.

We must have the masculine response as well. Look at our bodies. Do you think that our immune system just gives those misguided germs a big hug and understanding? No. It kills them. No inter-species dialogue, no being nice. Is that a bad thing? If you think so, then try AIDS, the failure of that viral/bacterial murdering (immoral, since its not nice?) immune system.

Being tough has come to mean cruel and, hence, evil. A feminized Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and secularism can no longer conceive what courage, honor and pride of civilization even means. We relegate the military and police to some social corner to do the dirty work that we don’t want to think about, but criticize.

All of the religions love to each feel superior to the other. But in the face of Islam, the Christians, the Jews, the Buddhists, the Hindus and the secularists all fall under the same banner-Be Nice. They all add Be Polite to Be Nice. Be Polite means that not only do we (Christians, Jews, Buddhists…) not talk about Islam, but Nice People don’t let others talk about Islam, that would impolite, since quoting Islamic doctrine and history offends Islam. And we don’t want to offend and doing more than Being Nice would cause us to examine our moral collapse and intellectual failure.

So go out there and Be Nice and Be Polite. Remember-a mitzvah a day keeps the evil away. Think happy thoughts. Love. That will change Islam. Oh wait! Islam does not need to change. We just need to Be Nicer!

    Regarding pacifists, George Orwell had the right description about them and pacifism:

    “Pacifism is objectively pro-Fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side you automatically help that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one.”

    GOOD CHARACTER
    Bukhari :: Book 4 :: Volume 54 :: Hadith 489
    Narrated Abu Wail:
    Somebody said to Usama, “Will you go to so-and-so (i.e. ‘Uthman) and talk to him (i.e. advise him regarding ruling the country)?” He said, “You see that I don’t talk to him. Really I talk to (advise) him secretly without opening a gate (of affliction), for neither do I want to be the first to open it (i.e. rebellion), nor will I say to a man who is my ruler that he is the best of all the people after I have heard something from Allah s Apostle .” They said, What have you heard him saying? He said, “I have heard him saying, “A man will be brought on the Day of Resurrection and thrown in the (Hell) Fire, so that his intestines will come out, and he will go around like a donkey goes around a millstone. The people of (Hell) Fire will gather around him and say: O so-and-so! What is wrong with you? Didn’t you use to order us to do good deeds and forbid us to do bad deeds? He will reply: Yes, I used to order you to do good deeds, >>>>>>>>>>but I did not do them myself< <<<<<<<<, and I used to forbid you to do bad deeds, yet>>>>>>>>> I used to do them myself<<<<<<<<<." Muslim being Positive attitude/good hope: 94: 1. Have We not opened your breast for you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))? 2. And removed from you your burden, 3. Which weighed down your back? 4. And raised high your fame? 5. So verily, with the hardship, there is relief, 6. Verily, with the hardship, there is relief (i.e. there is one hardship with two reliefs, so one hardship cannot overcome two reliefs). 7. So when you have finished (from your occupation), then stand up for Allāh's worship (i.e. stand up for prayer). 8. And to your Lord (Alone) turn (all your intentions and hopes and) your invocations. Bukhari :: Book 2 :: Volume 23 :: Hadith 373 Self Pride/boast prohibited: 4: 36. Worship Allah and join none with Him in worship, and do good to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, Al-Masākin (the poor), the neighbor who is near of kin, the neighbor who is a stranger, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (you meet), and those (slaves) whom your right hands possess. Verily, Allah does not like such as are proud and boastful; 57: 23. In order that you may not be sad over matters that you fail to get, nor rejoice because of that which has been given to you. And Allāh likes not prideful boasters. 31: 18. "And turn not your face away from men with pride, nor walk in insolence through the earth. Verily, Allāh likes not each arrogant boaster. 23: 46. To Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his chiefs, but they behaved insolently and they were people self-exalting (by disobeying their Lord, and exalting themselves over and above the Messenger of Allāh). 23: 67. In pride (they Quraish pagans and polytheists of Makkah used to feel proud that they are the dwellers of Makkah sanctuary Haram), talking evil about it (the Qur'ān) by night. 28: 39. And he and his hosts were arrogant in the land, without right, and they thought that they would never return to Us. 28:76"". "Do not be glad (with ungratefulness to Allāh's Favours). Verily! Allāh likes not those who are glad (with ungratefulness to Allāh's Favours). 77. But seek, with that (wealth) which Allāh has bestowed on you, the home of the Hereafter, and forget not your portion of legal enjoyment in this world, and do good as Allāh has been good to you, and seek not mischief in the land. Verily, Allāh likes not the Mufsidun (those who commit great crimes and sins, oppressors, tyrants, mischief-makers, corrupts). 79. So he went forth before his people in his pomp. Those who were desirous of the life of the world, said: "Ah, would that we had the like of what Qārun (Korah) has been given? Verily! He is the owner of a great fortune." 80. But those who had been given (religious) knowledge said: "Woe to you! The Reward of Allāh (in the Hereafter) is better for those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and this none shall attain except those who are patient (in following the truth)." 31: 18. "And turn not your face away from men with pride, nor walk in insolence through the earth. Verily, Allāh likes not each arrogant boaster. 53:".. So ascribe not purity to yourselves. He knows best him who fears Allāh and keep his duty to Him [i.e. those who are Al-Muttaqun 57: 23. In order that you may not be sad over matters that you fail to get, nor rejoice because of that which has been given to you. And Allāh likes not prideful boasters. 17:37. And walk not on the earth with conceit and arrogance. Verily, you can neither rend nor penetrate the earth, nor can you attain a stature like the mountains in height. Muslim :: Book 1 : Hadith 195 It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) observed: Three (are the persons) with whom Allah would neither speak, nor would He absolve them on the Day of Resurrection. Abu Mu'awiya added: He would not look at them and there is grievous torment for them: the aged adulterer, the liar king and the proud destitute. Dawud :: Book 41 : Hadith 5097 Narrated AbuHurayrah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Allah, Most High, has removed from you the pride of the pre-Islamic period and its boasting in ancestors. One is only a pious believer or a miserable sinner. You are sons of Adam, and Adam came from dust. Let the people cease to boast about their ancestors. They are merely fuel in Jahannam; or they will certainly be of less account with Allah than the beetle which rolls dung with its nose. Bukhari :: Book 5 :: Volume 57 :: Hadith 17 Bukhari :: Book 4 :: Volume 56 :: Hadith 692 Muslim :: Book 24 : Hadith 5203, 5205 Malik :: Book 48 : Hadith 48.5.9, 48.5.11 Muslim :: Book 24 : Hadith 5191 Muslim :: Book 24 : Hadith 5193 ,5195,5197, 5199, 5201 Muslim :: Book 1 : Hadith 164,165, 166 Love each other /present each other / Shake hands each other Bukhari :: Book 8 :: Volume 74 :: Hadith 279 Malik :: Book 47 : Hadith 47.4.16, 47.4.17,47.4.17 Muslim :: Book 32 : Hadith 6225 Dawud :: Book 41 : Hadith 5193 , 92, Do Good deed: virtue 2: 44. Enjoin you Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and each and every act of obedience to Allāh) on the people and you forget (to practise it) yourselves, while you recite the Scripture [the Taurāt (Torah)]! Have you then no sense? 2: 177. It is not Al-Birr (piety, righteousness, and each and every act of obedience to Allāh, etc.) that you turn your faces towards east and (or) west (in prayers); but Al-Birr is (the quality of) the one who believes in Allāh, the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, the Prophets and gives his wealth, in spite of love for it, to the kinsfolk, to the orphans, and to Al-Masākin (the poor), and to the wayfarer, and to those who ask, and to set slaves free, performs As-Salāt (Iqāmat-as-Salāt), and gives the Zakāt, and who fulfill their covenant when they make it, and who are As-Sābirin (the patient ones, etc.) in extreme poverty and ailment (disease) and at the time of fighting (during the battles). Such are the people of the truth and they are Al-Muttaqun 3: 104. And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong,and those will be the successful. 3: 110. You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allha. 3: 114. They believe in Allha and the Last Day, and they enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and hasten to good deeds. And those are among the righteous. 4: 114. There is no good in most of their secret talks save (in) him who orders Sadaqah (charity in Allāh's Cause), or Ma'ruf (Islāmic Monotheism and all the good and righteous deeds which Allāh has ordained), or conciliation between mankind, and he who does this, seeking the good Pleasure of Allāh, We shall give him a great reward. 6: 26. O Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover yourselves (screen your private parts, etc.) and as an adornment, and the raiment of righteousness, that is better. Such are among the Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allāh, that they may remember (i.e. leave falsehood and follow truth). 9: 112. (The believers whose lives Allāh has purchased are) those who repent to Allāh (from polytheism and hypocrisy, etc.), who worship Him, who praise Him, who fast (or go out in Allāh's Cause), who bow down (in prayer), who prostrate themselves (in prayer), who enjoin (people) for Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islāmic Monotheism and all what Islām has ordained) and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism of all kinds and all that Islām has forbidden), and who observe the limits set by Allāh (do all that Allāh has ordained and abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which Allāh has forbidden). And give glad tidings to the believers. 13: 22. And those who remain patient, seeking their Lord's Countenance, perform As-Salāt (Iqāmat-as-Salāt), and spend out of that which We have bestowed on them, secretly and openly, and defend evil with good, for such there is a good end; 16: 90. Verily, Allāh enjoins Al-Adl (i.e. justice and worshipping none but Allāh Alone - Islāmic Monotheism) and Al-Ihsān [i.e. to be patient in performing your duties to Allāh, totally for Allāh's sake and in accordance with the Sunnah (legal ways) of the Prophet SAW in a perfect manner], and giving (help) to kith and kin (i.e. all that Allāh has ordered you to give them e.g., wealth, visiting, looking after them, or any other kind of help, etc.): and forbids Al-Fahshā' (i.e all evil deeds, e.g. illegal sexual acts, disobedience of parents, polytheism, to tell lies, to give false witness, to kill a life without right, etc.), and Al-Munkar (i.e all that is prohibited by Islāmic law: polytheism of every kind, disbelief and every kind of evil deeds, etc.), and Al-Baghy (i.e. all kinds of oppression), He admonishes you, that you may take heed. 20: 82. And verily, I am indeed Forgiving to him who repents, believes (in My Oneness, and associates none in worship with Me) and does righteous good deeds, and then remains constant in doing them, (till his death). 22: 41. Those (Muslim rulers) who, if We give them power in the land, (they) order for Iqamat-as-Salāt. [i.e. to perform the five compulsory congregational Salāt (prayers) (the males in mosques)], to pay the Zakāt and they enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islāmic Monotheism and all that Islām orders one to do), and forbid Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism and all that Islām has forbidden) [i.e. they make the Qur'ān as the law of their country in all the spheres of life]. And with Allāh rests the end of (all) matters (of creatures). 22: 77. O you who believe! Bow down, and prostrate yourselves, and worship your Lord and do good that you may be successful. 25: 70. Except those who repent and believe (in Islāmic Monotheism), and do righteous deeds, for those, Allāh will change their sins into good deeds, and Allāh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. 27: 89. Whoever brings a good deed (i.e. Belief in the Oneness of Allāh along with every deed of righteousness), will have better than its worth, and they will be safe from the terror on that Day. 90. And whoever brings an evil (deed) (i.e. Shirk polytheism, disbelief in the Oneness of Allāh and every evil sinful deed), they will be cast down (prone) on their faces in the Fire. (And it will be said to them) "Are you being recompensed anything except what you used to do?" 28: 54. These will be given their reward twice over, because they are patient, and repel evil with good, and spend (in charity) out of what We have provided them. 28: 67. But as for him who repented (from polytheism and sins, etc.), believed (in the Oneness of Allāh, and in His Messenger Muhammad SAW), and did righteous deeds (in the life of this world), then he will be among those who are successful. 29: 58. And those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, to them We shall surely give lofty dwellings in Paradise, underneath which rivers flow, to live therein forever. Excellent is the reward of the workers. 30: 15. Then as for those who believed (in the Oneness of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism) and did righteous good deeds, such shall be honoured and made to enjoy luxurious life (forever) in a Garden of delight (Paradise). 30: 45. That He may reward those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism), and do righteous good deeds, out of His Bounty. Verily, He likes not the disbelievers. 31: 17. "O my son! Aqim-is-Salāt (perform As-Salāt), enjoin (people) for Al-Ma'ruf (Islāmic Monotheism and all that is good), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief in the Oneness of Allāh, polytheism of all kinds and all that is evil and bad), and bear with patience whatever befall you. Verily! These are some of the important commandments ordered by Allāh with no exemption. 32: 19. As for those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, for them are Gardens (Paradise) as an entertainment, for what they used to do. 33: 4. That He may recompense those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds. Those, theirs is forgiveness and Rizqun Karim (generous provision, i.e. Paradise). 34: 11. Saying: "Make you perfect coats of mail, balancing well the rings of chain armour, and work you (men) righteousness. Truly, I am All-Seer of what you do." 41: 8. Truly, those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism, and in His Messenger Muhammad SAW) and do righteous good deeds, for them will be an endless reward that will never stop (i.e. Paradise). 41: 33. And who is better in speech than he who [says: "My Lord is Allāh (believes in His Oneness)," and then stands straight (acts upon His Order), and] invites (men) to Allāh's (Islāmic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds, and says: "I am one of the Muslims." 41: 34. The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better (i.e. Allāh ordered the faithful believers to be patient at the time of anger, and to excuse those who treat them badly), then verily! he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend. 42:22".. while those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds (will be) in the flowering meadows of the Gardens (Paradise), having what they wish from their Lord. That is the supreme Grace, (Paradise). 23. That is (the Paradise) whereof Allāh gives glad tidings to His slaves who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds. Say (O Muhammad SAW): "No reward do I ask of you for this except to be kind to me for my kinship with you." And whoever earns a good righteous deed, We shall give him an increase of good in respect thereof. Verily, Allāh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Ready to appreciate (the deeds of those who are obedient to Him). 42: 26. And He answers (the invocation of) those who believe (in the Oneness of Allāh Islāmic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, and gives them increase of His Bounty. And as for the disbelievers, theirs will be a severe torment. 73:20"". whatever good you send before you for yourselves, (i.e. Nawāfil non-obligatory acts of worship: prayers, charity, fasting, Hajj and 'Umrah, etc.), you will certainly find it with Allāh, better and greater in reward". 84: 25. Save those who believe and do righteous good deeds, for them is a reward that will never come to an end (i.e. Paradise). 85: 11. Verily, those who believe and do righteous good deeds, for them will be Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise). That is the great success. 95: 6. Save those who believe (in Islāmic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds, then they shall have a reward without end (Paradise). 19:76. And Allāh increases in guidance those who walk aright [true believers in the Oneness of Allāh who fear Allāh much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden), and love Allāh much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)]. And the righteous good deeds that last, are better with your Lord, for reward and better for resort. Muslim :: Book 1 : Hadith 234,235,236 It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) observed: He who intended to do good, but did not do it, one good was recorded for him, and he who intended to do good and also did it, ten to seven hundred good deeds were recorded for him. And he who intended evil, but did not commit it, no entry was made against his name, but if he committed that, it was recorded. Muslim :: Book 1 : Hadith 64,65,66 'Abdullah b.

And fear the Fitnah (affliction and trial, etc.) which affects not in particular (only) those of you who do wrong (but it may afflict all the good and the bad people), and know that Allāh is Severe in punishment. Do good, stop bad: 4:124. And whoever does righteous good deeds, male or female, and is a true believer in the Oneness of Allāh (Muslim), such will enter Paradise and not the least injustice, even to the size of a Naqira (speck on the back of a date-stone), will be done to them. 45: 15. Whosoever does a good deed, it is for his ownself, and whosoever does evil, it is against (his ownself). Then to your Lord you will be made to return. 17: 7. (And We said): "If you do good, you do good for your ownselves, and if you do evil (you do it) against yourselves." 17: 15. Whoever goes right, then he goes right only for the benefit of his ownself. And whoever goes astray, then he goes astray to his own loss. No one laden with burdens can bear another's burden. And We never punish until We have sent a Messenger (to give warning). 5: 79. They used not to forbid one another from the Munkar (wrong, evil-doing, sins, polytheism, disbelief, etc.) which they committed. Vile indeed was what they used to do. 6: 120. Leave (O mankind, all kinds of) sin, open and secret. Verily, those who commit sin will get due recompense for that which they used to commit. 11: 112. So stand (ask Allah to make) you (Muhammad SAW) firm and straight (on the religion of Islamic Monotheism) as you are commanded and those (your companions) who turn in repentance (unto Allah) with you, and transgress not (Allah's legal limits). Verily, He is All-Seer of what you do. 113. And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than Allāh, nor you would then be helped. 28: 84. Whosoever brings good (Islāmic Monotheism along with righteous deeds), he shall have the better thereof, and whosoever brings evil (polytheism along with evil deeds) then, those who do evil deeds will only be requited for what they used to do. 2:82. And those who believe ,do righteous good deeds, they are dwellers of Paradise, they will dwell therein forever. 81. Yes! Whosoever earns evil and his sin has surrounded him, they are dwellers of the Fire (i.e. Hell); they will dwell therein forever. 23: 1. Successful indeed are the believers. 3. And those who turn away from Al-Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk, falsehood, and all that Allāh has forbidden). 4. And those who pay the Zakāt . 5. And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts) 6. Except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, for then, they are free from blame; 7.

Muslim :: Book 1 : Hadith 79 Messenger of Allah as saying: He who amongst you sees something abominable should modify it with the help of his hand; and if he has not strength enough to do it, then he should do it with his tongue, and if he has not strength enough to do it, (even) then he should (abhor it) from his heart, and that is the least of faith.
