In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
Yesterday, we saw that people of the UK voted to leave EU without properly knowing the consequences of leaving the Union.
We saw that people of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland want to remain in the EU. The Scottish prime minister said: They will look for a New Scottish referendum to leave UK and join EU.
The common man in the UK had never thought of such a situation would arise, in which the Scotland Will seek a referendum to leave UK for joining the EU. That will cause a double-blow in the socio-political-economic structure of the United Kingdom, if people of Scotland vote to leave UK for EU. This Will encourage Wales and Northern Ireland to seek Referendum to leave UK for EU. This kind of situation will not help the country or any people.
Therefore, I suggest Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon to consider my suggestion. My suggestion is this:
Consider holding a British Referendum on Scotland instead of holding a Scottish referendum.
The Referendum must give all people the right to vote . To save the UK and to Save EU and the interest of the common people , this is very important. And this suggestion must be taken seriously by Scottish people for the goodness of all people.
In the Referendum, Scotland’s interest must be respected and it should be a win-win referendum.
Therefore the Referendum must have two questions for whole of the UK.
1- UK remain in the EU for the mutual interest of Scotland Wales and N.Ireland (all UK ballot)
2- UK Leave EU (All UK ballot)
3- Scotland leave UK for EU if UK leave EU (For Scotland only)
I hope people who understand the real life situation will accept option 1 and in the event of a new Referendum. And third option give Scottish people a reasonable right to negotiate with respect of the people in the United Kingdom.
This is for the good of all people. It is easy to join a Union and feel it’s benefits and comfort. But to divide and leave is painful to families, children relatives society and communities etc.
This referendum should take place as early as possible, so that the damage caused by current Referendum can be eliminated and cured as soon as possible.
I hope the Scottish people consider this suggestion and they may negotiate in a better way for the mutual benefit all people. And this will save not only the interest of Scotland but also the interest of the rest of the people in the UK and EU who are directly or indirectly affected by Brexit. Let’s Fixit the Brexit.
Peace be upon the Prophets of Allah Almighty
Praise be to Allah Lord of the Worlds

BREXIT REFERENDUM AND IT’S IMPACT ON BRITISH MUSLIMS AND ETHNIC MINORITIES: (23/06/2016)
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem. Today Britons voting for a referendum to decide whether to leave the European Union or to remain in the EU. For Muslims Jews and other ethnic and religious minorities what does it mean?.
Britain’s membership in the European Union has helped british people especially religious and ethnic minorities, vulnerable and youth from all back grounds. In safeguarding human rights and youth development European Union has played a vital role. In Civil and Economic areas and supporting refugees European Union rules and regulations helped in upholding social values and human rights.
For Muslims and other people in general to enjoy this social securities and benefits , Britain should remain in European Union.
About Britain Exiting European Union:
I heard many Muslims and non-Muslims voting to leave EU and encouraging their friends and relatives to vote for leave!. However, this is one of the suicidal act of Muslims and non-Muslims alike!. It is coming from people’s narrow mindedness and lack of deep insight.
Because: The only organisations that want Britain to leave thie European Union is far right, fascist, anti-Muslim, anti-Mainstream christian, anti-Human right, intolerant groups and parties. The Fascist , anti-Muslim far right political groups want the same Asians and Muslims to be kicked out from the UK or to be persecuted.
You may ask, how this (leaving EU) affect us Muslims and non-Muslims?. Even conservative prime minister, David Cameroon want Brits to stay in the EU. So you must understand the importance of staying in the EU. So if Britons vote to leave EU and a Brexit would happen , that time, it will be a national success for the far right , fascist , anti-Muslim that their campaign become a success.
That success will eventually lead, Britain to become a fully nationalist state, with no-control from an external Judiciary. Over the time, if fascists take over British politics, that time the suicidal drop that Muslims swallowed today by voting to leave EU will start working and harming Muslims.
So Muslims and others favoring their organisational interests means, supporting their cause indirectly. Which means it is suicidal to vote to leave the EU.
So, over the time, if the fascists take over the rule of the nationalist state,, it will be an opening to conflicts and riots, between far right groups in different religions and ethnicities. This will harm British society a great deal, that time it affect everyone, it’s consequences will befall on everyone regardless of their back-ground.
Britain leaving EU may do some good for Britons, but it will be without Muslims and ethnic minorities living in this country. People are not really following the true message of their religion or values this days!. Everyone is greedy and angry about everything, this kind of social situation caused by a vote will put the responsibility in the hands of everyone. Those who voted in favour of leaving the EU and those who did not vote at all!
United Kingdom leaving the EU will only strengthen far right fascist Anti-Muslim nationalism. You will have mosques banned , Madrassas closed and Hijab banned over the time. For others, multiculturalism will come to an end!.In the event far rights take over the Westminster Parliament in the future, you have no back up plan from the EU to keep your rights and safety.
For rest of the people, social tensions, riots far right-Anti Far right fights and bombs in the streets in the future decades. Just remember anglo-irish war!. Do we need Anglo far right-Muslim wars in the UK? No, we do not need anymore violence in the world. We are tired of seeing and hearing wars and bloodshed!
Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala giving intelligence to man, Ifi he use it n the right way he will make peace with all mankind. But if he use it in the wrong way he will make conflict within himself and chaos and mischief around him.
Islam teach that the best Muslim is the one with best morals and manners. We must uphold the human rights, justice, tolerance, harmony, love and peace. This is an informal statement and whoever listen and obey will find goodness, and whoever turning away from this message, the responsibility will be in their own hands.
IS IT PERMISSIBLE TO VOTE?
Some Muslims say, voting is not permissible at all. They quote a Quran verse out of context and say, voting is forbidden in Islam! In certain times, Islam allows certain forbidden/disliked actions to be permissible, Islam is a practical religion with practical wisdom it is not a classroom philosophy subject.
It is Haram (forbidden) to murder someone, but Islam says, if that one person cause 10 innocent people to die, then better that one person must die instead of 10 innocent people to die by his hands. The Army and Police of all nations work in this principles.
But Islam also says it is important to stop evil. And when all become evil, choose lesser evil.
Or you can run away from the system. If you cannot run away (flee from afflictions) then stop evil that is coming against Islam. We have difficult situation, no shariah no Caliph. So it depends on place to place.
There was a situation In America, the counselor wanted to demolish the Osmanli Cemetery, we had to approach them for our rights and honour to protect the cemetery.
So it is Muslims responsibility to support those who uphold or respect Muslims and their rights.
When it is allowed to eat even forbidden meat in such difficult situations. It is forbidden to elect oppressors. If you fear oppressors will take over the place and harm believers, then it is a duty to choose the Ruler
On the authority of Abu Sa`eed al-Khudree (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say, “Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim] (Imam Nawawi 40 Hadith-number 34
So if you are able to stop anti-Muslim/far right/fascist groups taking power by leaving EU and going to extreme nationalist politics over the time, then it is obligatory (Fard-Ain) for you to step in and vote to remain in the EU. Do not support evil.
So many Christians are voting to Stay in the EU. Some are voting to exit. If they follow the teachings of Gospel , they may vote to stay in the EU. The Bible says to love your neighbour as you love yourself, foreigners residing among you as you love yourself, you must love them as you love yourself. And to submit to the teachings of Christ and resist the evil (James 4:7) and make the evil flee from you.
As we can see leaving European Union and it’s consequences will bring an impact on everyone’s life. A believer must support what is good for all human being. Unfortunately people make fatwa not to vote and do not make fatwa not to open a bank or not to hold a credit card account in HSBC and American Express. You are partaking in riba (usury) institutions and ceasing to stop evil coming against Muslims and all humanity? I see every Muslim cleric with a credit card/bank account that do business in the Riba (usury) contract, though they are not taking usury to their pocket, they are part of the system. But if you are not a part of the system you are living in, then this message is not for you.
TO BRITISH MUSLIMS AND ETHNIC MINORITIES (EUROPEANS AND NON-EUROPEANS) LIVING IN THE UK: 24/06/2016
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem For each (such person) there are (angels) in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of Allah. Allah does not change a people’s lot unless they change what is in their hearts. (Quran 13:11)
“REFERENDUM” IN POLITICS:
Referendum is the highest method of democracy,the final world of general public. So most hailed method of decision making in Democratic system. Referendum is a method that is to be used to make decision that need greater voice of the people than just some elected representative of the people!.
Therefore, Britain or another state cannot ignore results of a “Referendum”. This is why Prime Minister resigned the same day of the result of Referendum published.
So if Britons want to ignore or change Referendum, because now Scotland and Northern Ireland want to leave UK to Join EU, then majority Brits who voted to leave EU will look stupids and wicked. Because it shows people’s lack of knowledge and understanding of the reality. And how they are fooled by politicians who want to get out of the EU by giving people false promise to make them vote to leave EU.
Anyway,spiritually, I would consider this shaking and collapse of leaving EU as a divine punishment (Quran 108:3 for enmity to Allah and Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam), legalising what Allah has forbidden in Torah, Gospel and Enjil and disrespecting holy months (see Isaiah 66:17, 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9). So many arrogant and foolish Muslims voted to leave EU, because they know nothing about the consequences of what they have done!.
Muslims not following the teachings of the Holy Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam), and God’s curse coming down, and whole world is receiving divine wrath because of their disobedience to Divine Orders and dishonoring prophets.
Quran 24:63 Do not make [your] calling of the Messenger among yourselves as the call of one of you to another. Already Allah knows those of you who slip away, concealed by others. So let those beware who dissent from the Prophet’s order, lest fitnah strike them or a painful punishment.
The Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam foretold that people will become corrupt sects and they will fight against one another for worldly possessions. Everyone today worshiping their own ego and they have been deceived to a destruction!
CONSEQUENCES OF BRITAIN’S EXIT FROM THE EU:
In all countries around the world, after globalisation and multiculturalism (the system of Dajjal), the enemy of Mankind inspiring your hearts far right views and extreme nationalism and racism. Brexit is just another example of this. Whatever Allah Almighty has decreed will come to Happen. But our Message is not in Divine Decree or Belief, but in the laws and commandments, that Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala is Giving through Holy Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam and Holy Awliya Allah.
Everyone believes in pre-destiny, but we are commanded to work according to the religious duties and commandments. Everyone knows one day they will die, but no one cease to work ,because they know they die one day unexpectedly.
1-Brexit will inspire other far right groups to seek referendum to leave the EU. 2- It is a victory of the Far right, Fascist, Anti-Muslim, Anti-Immigration groups in the UK, and failure of the Labour,Conservative and Liberals. This means, Far right parties will come to power and will increase tensions between far rights and ethnic minorities.
3- Scotland and Northern-Ireland, who look for independance will seek further referendum to leave the UK, and they will leave UK to join EU, This will terminate the existence of the United Kingdom.
4-Other EU member states may seek to leave EU, will bring an end to not only EU, but also the existence of Other European provinces in Europe who will look for referendum to leave EU or to join EU when the main state leave EU and will cause to leave their national state (like Spanish Catalonia). This will destabilise mainland Europe over the time. Since everyone worshiping democracy, and “Referendum” is the direct election and most straight form of Democracy, “Referendum” which is the mother of Democracy will cause nations to struggle.
5–Far right groups gaining power will lead to communal conflicts and riots over the time. The next British and European politics will be far right domination. Far right supporters may lead violent attacks against ethnic minorities in the event they take over UK and European national politics after exiting the EU. We are going to back to history?
6-Muslims and other ethnic/religious minority will be persecuted in the event of major chaos (see Points 2-3-4). The role of hate preachers and hate speakers will come to practical events and the fruits of this false preachers who preach against Islam and Muslims will cause Syrian type Civil wars and conflicts in the Europe. Which will lead to death of world economy and political system , out of hand situation (Anarchy) 7- People in the UK voted Mr David Cameroon and his party to lead the UK, and they rejected his plead to continue in the EU, this shows people are ignorant. The same people who elected Conservative rejected the same party in the EU referendum and made the far right groups victorious. This shows the ignorance people and weakness of democracy. You may elect doctors and prime ministers through voting!. David Cameroon resigning from the office is a failure of the people who voted to leave EU and voted conservatives last election. Literally, the legitimacy of Conservative government is in question now. This is a failure of the ruling party and opposition parties and a victory of Far right groups!
No-Win Win Solution!.
It has become a lose-lose catastrophe for all parties and even for people , only far right groups have won this referendum.
Awliya Allah (friends of Allah) speak according to the spiritually inspired knowledge from the Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswlathu wa salam). Everything will go according to the Information (Hadith) given by the Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam. Because people have left the commandments of Allah Almighty and living a dirty and corrupt life style. No more wisdom, remains in the hearts of the majority. And we are awaiting to see the Owner of the Time, Sayyidina Mahdi appears and put everything in order.
Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (Q.S) advised Muslims to brexit in 2010. Not to exit EU, but to leave West and return to Homeland.
The people have no intelligence today,, especially Muslims, Muslim clerics ,Imams and scholars. They are only looking to build Mosques make funds from people and government, which will be demolished in the future and they will have to flee. Their misguidance and strayed ways and people following their ego and evil desires and selfishness is going to cause Divine Judgement to fall on them. May Allah forgive us. Whatever must happen by the Will of Allah, Must happen.
I am not going to interfere into that kind of knowledge. But this news is based on the teachings of My Shaykhs Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S) and Sahibul Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-KIbrisi (Q.S), a News that is coming from the Master of the Beginning and End, Sayyiduna Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam.
This is a reminder for people, first to those who claim they are the followers of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S), secondly to all Muslims, thirdly to all brothers and sisters in humanity. Whether they want to listen understand and obey.

Hazret Shaykh Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi (may Allah be well pleased with him) is one of the Grand Masters of Tasawwuf (Sufism/Islamic Spirituality). His works like “Al Futuhat Al Makkiyya and Fusus Al Hikam” are renowned masterpiece in the knowledge of Sufism.
Hazret Shaykh Ibn Arabi is known as “Shaykh Al Akbar” which means the greatest Shaykh (Spiritual knower of Allah the Mighty and Sublime). The teachings of Hazret Ibn Arabi (Radiyallahu Anhu) illuminate the hearts of the seekers and disciples in the gnosis of God , and explores the hidden knowledge of Tawhid (Islamic monotheism) and Spirituality of Islam.
This are some excerpts from the biography of Hazret ibn Arabi (R.A) and his encounter with people of the Book (Christians and Jews).
Hazret Ibn Arabi (Radiyallahu Anhu) at a Church:
One day, one of Ibn Arabi’s opponents was taken sick, stayed in the home.The Shaykh went to visit the sick. he knocked the door and asked the sick man’s wife to inform him that he wished to meet him and pay his respects. The woman went to her husband and conveyed the message and returning to the Shaykh, told that her husband did not wish to see him. The Shaykh had no business in this house, she told him. The proper place for him was the Church. The Shaykh thanked the women and said that since a good man like her husband would certainly not send him to a bad place., he would comply with the suggestion. So after praying for his health and welfare of the sick man, the Shaykh departed for the Church.
When he arrived at the Church, he removed his shoes, entered with humble courtesy , and slowly and silently headed toward a corner, where he sat down. The priest was in the midst of delivering a sermon to which Hazret Ibn Arabi (Q.S) listened with the utmost attention. During the sermon, the Shaykh felt that the priest had slandered Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) by attributing to him the claim that he was son of God. The Shaykh stood up and courteously objected to this statement. “O venerable priest,” he began “Holy Jesus Christ did not say that. On the contrary, he foretold the good news of the arrival of the Prophet Ahmad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)”.
The priest denied that Jesus (Peace be upon him) had said this. The debate went on and on. Finally the Shaykh, pointing to the image of Jesus on the Church wall, told the priest to ask Jesus himself. He would answer and and decide the issue once and for all. The priest protested aggressively, pointing out that a picture could not speak. The picture would speak, the Shaykh insisted,for God, who had made Jesus speak while a baby in the arms of holy Virgin Mary (Peace be upon her), was able to make his picture as well. The congregation following the heated debate became excited at this statement . The priest was forced to turn to the image of Jesus and address it: “O son of God! Show us the true path tell us which of us is right in our claim.” With God’s Will , the picture spoke and answered: “I am not the son of God, I am His Messenger, and after me came the last of Prophets, the Holy Ahmad; I foretold that to you, and I repeat this good news now”.
With this miracle the whole congregation accepted Islam and, with Hazret Ibn Arabi leading them, marched through the streets to the Masjid. As they passed by the house of the sick man , he could be seen within , his eyes wide open in astonishment , looking out of the window at this curious sight. The saint stopped , and blessed and thanked the man who had insulted him, saying that he was to be praised for the salvation of all these people.
