The Evil of Secret Societies

From the fitna of the Dajjal which afflicts the Muslim Umma is the harm of secret societies, like the freemasons, illuminati, etc. It isn’t a coincidence that the symbol of freemasonry is the so-called ‘Eye of Providence’ which in fact corresponds to the one-eye of the Dajjal. This symbol appears on the U.S. dollar bill, as part of its ‘Great Seal’. The origin of this symbol is in Renaissance era Europe, the one-eye enclosed within a triangle represents the Christian trinity. Undoubtedly, the secret societies which may have had humble beginnings but having endured with many centuries have grown extremely powerful. Being able to count powerful individuals as their members, these secret societies have strong geopolitical influence. The individuals at the highest levels of these secret societies remain largely unknown to the public. The higher up you go in the hierarchical pyramid, the more diabolical individuals are to be found. The ideology of Salafi modernism which penetrated into the Muslim world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was as a result of the influence of freemasonry and imperial powers like Britain and France. Individuals like Jamal al-Din al-Afghani and his associate Muhammad Abduh were known freemasons. These were the individuals who introduced modernism into the Muslim world. Likewise, ‘Sir’ Syed Ahmad Khan, the modernist and neo-Mu’tazilite, was extremely pro-British and was their agent in introducing Western ideas to the Muslims of India. In Egypt, Hasan al-Banna founded the so-called Ikhwan-al-Muslimun or ‘Muslim Brotherhood’, a secretive organization, and likewise the Jamaati Islami founded by Abul-Ala Mawdudi in the Indian subcontinent. These two groups spawned numerous splinter groups and copycats throughout the Muslim world, carrying on a certain political ideology, but with the activities of its leadership shrouded in secrecy. The Religion of Islam prefers transparency in the activities of the Muslims, and has condemned Najwa or secret counsel:

إِنَّمَا النَّجْوَىٰ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ

Private counsel is only from Satan

[Sura 58:10]

Of course an exception is made for Najwa or private counsel that is for a good purpose, such as enjoining Sadaqa, Ma’ruf, or Islah among the people [Sura 4:114]. The Prophet said:

وَعَلَيْكَ بِالْعَلانِيَةِ ، وَإِيَّاكَ وَالسِّرَّ

“Upon you is transparency, and beware of secrecy”

[as-Sunna of Ibn Abi Aasim]

Certain secretive sects like the Nusayri Alawites, the Druze, and the Isma’iliya are in fact Batini esotericists who are highly secretive, are condemned as Satanic by the Holy Quran. There should be no secrecy in beliefs among any group of Muslims. The Shi’a who practice Taqiya or dissimulation likewise fall under this category. As for the political Jama’aat or parties, the ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ being the largest of them, but also the likes of Hizb-ut-Tahrir, their secrecy is quite dangerous because their behavior is conspiratorial and aimed at seizing power for themselves above all else. Muslims should be careful not to join any political party in general, but be particularly aware of the fact that those political parties which cloak themselves in the garb of Islam are deceptive and have ulterior motives. They have many secret counsels and meetings which are not open to the public, a tendency which is altogether un-Islamic and makes them suspect. These groups that operate among the Muslims in secrecy are in fact modelled after the evil secret societies like the Freemasons. Allah Most High says that this Najwa is from Satan, because Satan himself is secretive and meets in secret with his devilish minions among the Jinn. Those individuals who are at the highest echelons of the secret societies remain anonymous and hide their identity not only from the general public, but from the majority of the society’s members who are occupying the lower rungs. Indeed, those at the very top practice abominable things such as communication with devils and demons, and take instruction from the latter. I have become aware of this reality through deep reflection and through a sort of Kashaf making me acquainted with some of that which is enigmatic to the ordinary people. Believing Muslims should combat and resist the evil of the secret societies by exposing and speaking openly about them, warning their fellow Muslims about their reality and how they seek to misguide the people. And Allah knows best.
