The real problem of Ummah are the Hijab wearing and Beard keeping Muslims.
These are the same people who have made Islam a Religion much against the knowledge of the Qur’an by stating that secular education is Western, worldly and Christian and will not help in the akhirah (hereafter). And, these are the same people who state that the Sunnah of the Prophet (s) is something he said and did “outside” of what is written in the Qur’an.
If you wish to know why the hijab is not a Muslim woman’s dress code and why the beard is not the Sunnah of the Prophet (s) then you will have to consider the worldview knowledge of the Qur’an on this issue, not one or two verses here and there out of context with what is written in the Qur’an as a whole.
For example, as far as the hijab and beard is concerned, you will have to consider the worldview knowledge of the Qur’an, which states that in the unified field of the Islamic way of life, there is no universal sign, symbol, art, dressing, culture or socio-economical and political affiliation.
This is because, this is the knowledge of the Qur’an which differentiates God-given diversities from man-made ones and rightly distinguishes what constitutes true Diversity, Democracy, globalization, nationalism and freedom of speech.
Therefore, in the light of this, the Sunnah of the Prophet (s) is defined as “the path and practice of the Qur’an” and not something he is alleged to have said and done “outside” of what is written in the Qur’an.
Hence, it is not difficult to establish the worldview knowledge of the Qur’an to solve all the problems of the ummah in all the areas of our lives. All one has to do is correlate the Word of God in the Qur’an with the Work of God in Nature.
From this point of view, the Qur’an expects us to believe in God as the Creator, Designer, Sustainer, Protector, etc, of the Universe without believing in Religion and follow the secular and scientific path of the creation (sun, moon, stars, trees, mountains, etc) without being Godless.
Therefore, if you wish to solve the problem of sectarianism, secularism, globalization and nationalism in the Muslim world, then all you will have to do is teach Qur’an in the context of God’s Work in Nature in a Post-Modern way according to the Creeds of Abraham (pbuh) and the worldview teachings of Tawhid (an Arabic word for unity and universality), which are found in the Qur’an.
