Hijrah: Jihad By Emigration And The Death Of Europe

There are many places on the planet that nobody would ever willing move to, especially Westerners who grow up believing in silly old ideas like the value of human life and freedom.

Nowadays though, those places come to you.

More correctly, the people and ideologies from nations where life has little value swamp into Western nations and begin to ingrain those ideologies into their next generations, who frequently grow up hating the West far more than their parents ever could have.

At the moment, Leftists applaud as hundreds of thousands of mostly Muslim refugees pour into Europe demanding the right to freely receive all of the benefits that many in the West died to achieve over a timeframe of centuries.

It’s one thing to want it but nobody gets the freedom of the West freely, especially if it is not treasured and nurtured carefully.

Simply, you cling to Islam once you’re in the West and that’s what you will get: bloody, violent, oppressive, racist, sexist Islam.

The more Muslims there are, the greater the terraforming effect will be. Then one day, the West will look pretty much like the Middle East…somewhere that no refugee would ever flee to.

Robert Spencer’s report outlines the future of Europe and it doesn’t look good:

Approximately 104,460 asylum seekers arrived in Germany during the month of August, setting a new record. That makes 413,535 registered refugees and migrants coming to Germany in 2015 so far. The country expects a total of around 800,000 people to seek asylum in Germany this year. And that’s just Germany. The entire continent of Europe is being inundated with refugees at a rate unprecedented in world history. This is no longer just a “refugee crisis.” This is a hijrah.

Hijrah, or jihad by emigration, is, according to Islamic tradition, the migration or journey of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Yathrib, later renamed by him to Medina, in the year 622 CE. It was after the hijrah that Muhammad for the first time became not just a preacher of religious ideas, but a political and military leader. That was what occasioned his new “revelations” exhorting his followers to commit violence against unbelievers. Significantly, the Islamic calendar counts the hijrah, not Muhammad’s birth or the occasion of his first “revelation,” as the beginning of Islam, implying that Islam is not fully itself without a political and military component.

To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act. “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance,” says the Qur’an. “And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.” (4:100) The exalted status of such emigrants led a British jihad group that won notoriety (and a shutdown by the government) a few years ago for celebrating 9/11 to call itself Al-Muhajiroun: The Emigrants.

And now a hijrah of a much greater magnitude is upon us. Evidence that this is a hijrah, not simply a humanitarian crisis, came last February, but was little noted at the time and almost immediately forgotten. The Islamic State published a document entitled, “Libya: The Strategic Gateway for the Islamic State.” Gateway into Europe, that is: the document exhorted Muslims to go to Libya and cross from there as refugees into Europe. This document tells would-be jihadis that weapons from Gaddafi’s arsenal are plentiful and easy to obtain in Libya – and that the country “has a long coast and looks upon the southern Crusader states, which can be reached with ease by even a rudimentary boat.”

The Islamic State did not have in mind just a few jihadis crossing from Libya: it also emerged last February that the jihadis planned to flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. Now the number is shooting well beyond that in Germany alone. Of course, not all of these refugees are Islamic jihadis. Not all are even Muslims, although most are. However, no effort whatsoever is being made to determine the refugees’ adherence to Sharia and desire to bring it to their new land. Any such effort would be “Islamophobic.” Yet there are already hints that the Islamic State is putting its plan into effect: jihadis have already been found among the refugees trying to enter Europe. There will be many more such discoveries.

Eight hundred thousand Muslim refugees in one year alone. This will transform Germany, and Europe, forever, overtaxing the welfare economies of its wealthiest nations and altering the cultural landscape beyond recognition. Yet the serious public discussion that needs to be had about this crisis is shouted down by the usual nonsense: the Washington Post Wednesday published an inflammatory and irresponsible piece likening those concerned about this massive Muslim influx into Europe to 1930s Nazis ready to incinerate Jews by the millions. Hollywood star Emma Thompson accused British authorities of racism for not taking in more refugees – as if British authorities haven’t already done enough to destroy their nation.

And so it goes. If you don’t accept the brave new world that is sure to bring more jihad and more Sharia to Europe, you’re a Nazi and a racist. Meanwhile, no one is bothering even to ask, much less answer, one central question: why is it incumbent upon Europe have to absorb all these refugees? Why not Saudi Arabia or the other Muslim countries that are oil-rich and have plenty of space? The answer is unspoken because non-Muslim authorities refuse to believe it and Muslims don’t want it stated or known: these refugees have to go to Europe because this is a hijrah. 

This is also Europe’s death knell.

Despite all this, it’s important to remember that true freedom comes from Christ Jesus alone.

We don’t want to see the West die but ultimately it, and its enemies, will be replaced by God’s eternal Kingdom, to the praise and glory of Jesus Christ.

    • Thanks Tony,

      I agree with you in part but I would describe my position as present yet future.

      Jesus says a few thing about the kingdom of God having arrived:

      “Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”” Mark‬ ‭1:14-15‬ ‭ESV‬‬

      “These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay.” Matthew‬ ‭10:5-8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

      The healings and the exorcisms indeed demonstrate the that kingdom has come near.

      Jesus also makes it clear that the kingdom is growing and increasing – as you wrote – in several parables.

      “And he said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground. He sleeps and rises night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows; he knows not how. The earth produces by itself, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. But when the grain is ripe, at once he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.” And he said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth, yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.””
      ‭‭Mark‬ ‭4:26-32‬ ‭ESV‬‬

      However, I don’t believe scripture supports the idea that the Kingdom of God is fully established, as implied by the idea that it is increasing.

      The fruit of the kingdom is being produced now and the people of God are maturing like the grain in the parable but for the kingdom of God to be here in fullness, Jesus needs to assume his earthly throne as King over the nations, just as Psalm 2 describes.

      One could also argue that for the very fullness of the kingdom to be established, sin and death need to be removed from creation and the Father must come down to the earth.

      Daniel makes it clear that the possession of the kingdom is not until the end of the age:

      ““Thus he said: ‘As for the fourth beast, there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all the kingdoms, and it shall devour the whole earth, and trample it down, and break it to pieces. As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise, and another shall arise after them; he shall be different from the former ones, and shall put down three kings. He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. But the court shall sit in judgment, and his dominion shall be taken away, to be consumed and destroyed to the end. And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High; his kingdom shall be an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.’”
      ‭‭Daniel‬ ‭7:23-27‬ ‭ESV‬‬

      In other words, God has gathered Christ the firstfruits but the harvest is not yet in.

      Bless you brother.
