Western Civilization in View of Sheikh Muhammad Wadeh Al-Rasheed Al-Hasani Al-Nadawi
Keywords:Western civilization, human values, innate qualities, duality, Islamic awakening, exploitation policy
Western civilization as described by many scholars is a civilization accused of exploitation and duplicity. The reality is colonialism, distortion, and forgery. Western thought, which originated in the hands of Pagan Greece and the worship of the Roman God Caesar, then tainted its legacy with the distorted myths of Judaism and the concepts of Christianity. Today, it has become a global thought, and it is trying to impose its influence on all the people in general and on the Islamic nation in particular. Thus, the Islamic nation should have done today a comparative study between the Arab-Islamic civilization and the European civilization and try to know the realities of the two civilizations and determine its position on Western civilization and Western thought, and not be far from the Arab spirit and innate characteristics.
Allah the Almighty blessed the Islamic nation with many jealous Islamic scholars to carry out this responsibility, so they criticized Western civilization and thought, exposed its falsity, and called on people to resist it and protect their souls from assimilating into it. The prominent Islamic scholar, Sheikh Muhammad Wadeh Al-Rashid Al-Hasani Al-Nadawi(1935-2019 AD.) belongs to this group. He analysed Western thought and its materialistic philosophy in a scientific way and proved with evidence that it is a civilization of exploitation and dualism, and human feeling is missing in this civilization. He published articles in this field in Al-Raid newspaper and Al-Baath Al-Islami magazine (both are published in Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama, Luknow). The Islamic Scientific Academy in Lucknow collected some of these articles and printed them as a book in 2012 AD. entitled 'To a New World Order'. In this article, humble efforts have been made to study the book and analyse it to understand the facts raised by Sheikh Muhammad Wadeh Al-Rashid Al-Hasani Al-Nadawi in an objective manner.
