The World is an Abode of Faith and Islam

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
والصلاة والسلام على رسوله الكريم
وعلى اهل بيته الطيبين الطاهرين المظلومين
والعاقبة للمتقين
The idea of “minority fiqh” is a clever ruse to get Muslims to water down their obversance of the Shari’a. Islam is a universal faith, relevant and applicable in all times and places. This division of the world into the “abode of Islam” and the “abode of unbelief” has no clear basis in the divine revelation. It is actually a construct of medieval jurisprudence. The Prophet (sall Allahu alayhi wasallam) said:
فَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ الأَرْضَ لِلَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ
“Know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle”
(Sahih al-Bukhari)
The great imam of ahl as-Sunna, Imam al-Hasan b. Ali al-Barbahari (rahimahullah) (d. 329 H), did not recognize the division of the world into two opposing abodes, but wrote:
واعلم بأن الدنيا دار إيمان وإسلام
“Know that the world is a place of faith and Islam”
(Sharh as-Sunna #45):
