What does the western civilization lack?
The western civilization was set upon science and technological progress, they reached high degrees in physical development and prosperity but it needs basic principles found in Islam so that it can be mature and prevail its benefits, such as:
1- The western civilization reached assured facts without doubt, but western people don’t follow or apply them though they trust those facts, such as the harms of wine, all medical and scientific researches proved that there are harmful effects of wine and drinking alcohol on both the individual and the society. Though they trust this, all the laws, rules and initiatives failed to stop this bad habit and plague, they need to apply what God says:
61:2, 3. “O you who believe! Why say you that which you do not? Grievously odious is it in the sight of God that you say that which you do not.”
2- The western civilization claims that it concerns and keeps human rights but it contradicts this practically. Those countries spend most of their budgets in making ordinary, chemical, germinal, atomic and other weapons. Those weapons are only made to destroy man; they also fabricate wars among people for fragile reasons or even for no reasons so that they can sell their weapons or test them, though they know how destructive and ruinous are those weapons to humanity.
If they spend small amount of their investments in weapons on what humanity needs, in agriculture, food or medicine, all humanity will be happy and there will be no poor or ill people on earth.
3- They claim they are merciful to animals and they manage different associations for this. They also attack human bad behaviors against animals, but we see them not merciful towards man. The cruelty and savagery in their wars at this age exceed the cruelty and savagery of last ages of the Romans, the Mongols and the barbarians everywhere, as if they think that the man who needs rights, duties and care is only the western man. Their behaviors imply that they treat other people as if they are lower than animals.
4- Most modern inventions need to be accompanied by Islamic morals especially in the field of propagation and giving birth. If surrogacy, sperm banks and artificial insemination work without Islamic moral regulations, they will result in many afflictions that menace the destruction of humanity as lineage will mix, origins will vanish and venereal diseases will spread especially AIDS. Consequently this leads to moral putridity. Any society leaves morals will certainly loose its civilization, as God says:
17:16. “When We decide to destroy a population, We (first) send a definite order to those among them who are given the good things of this life and yet transgress; so that the word is proved true against them: then (it is) We destroy them utterly”.
5- Physical western civilization only cares for its people’s physical and worldly needs. It destroys passion, cooperation and beneficence in them, they only seek physical utility from people they deal with. Even their aids to poor countries have conditions that those countries follow their policies and orders and whoever does not follow them even if he had to do, they deprive him and stop their support. They even throw butter, wheat and corn in oceans because it’s expensive to store them and they want their products to be more expensive instead of giving them to the poor. This mere physical attitude needs to be reformed and treated by adding doing the good and benefaction for God’s sake and for the hereafter, this only comes from heavenly religions revealed from God.
6- Western civilization provided its peoples with all the physical constituents of this life such as work, salary, dwelling, food, nourishment and medicine, but it neglected social needs such as honoring one’s parents, being kind to one’s children, friendship and cordiality among neighbors and colleagues. So they are exposed to mental and psychological diseases that cost them so much to get rid of.
If we know that mental hospitals and insane asylums in those western countries are much more than other hospitals, this is so dangerous and may lead to the destruction of this western physical civilization, because man is the basis of civilization, man invent equipments and benefits from them so man’s safety should be the first aim of this civilization apparently, interiorly, mentally, physically and socially, this only happens when we take these social Islamic ways of life.
