Satan's Kingdom


Satan apparently has an established kingdom on earth. This is obvious from the spread of disease, famine, poverty and disasters allover the planet.  The following is a brief description of the main ailments the world is suffering from today, Satan's main players who control the world are not the focus here though.

Transgression # 1:

Inequality



God
didn't create us all equal in attributes, ofcourse we are equal in rights and humanity, however there are differences that only God controls, for example wealth, health, color, race and gender. It is wrong to think that we can control these factors, those who tried to change their color, or status on their own always failed, why?

They either did change their condition but lost their happiness and peace, or failed to change it.

The reason is that there is only one way to change your condition positively, and it is by making a decision to denounce the devil, say No to your sinful lusts, and side with God alone.

[13:11] Shifts (of angels) take turns, staying with each one of you - they are in front of you and behind you. They stay with you, and guard you in accordance with GOD's commands. Thus, GOD does not change the condition of any people unless they themselves make the decision to change. If GOD wills any hardship for any people, no force can stop it. For they have none beside Him as Lord and Master.


It is impossible to achieve total equality between the people, some tried to eradicate all natural differences like the feminist movements who are trying to be totally equal with the men in both rights and roles in defiance of God's design (Man is the captain of the ship), while others like the communists tried by force to eradicate the differences between the rich and the poor. Others fell in the other extreme which is "Capitalism", but it was also doomed to fail because of the "Jungle mentality" where there is no compassion.

The answer that God gives is not "total eradication of differences" nor is it "glorifying differences", it is a middle path inbetween. A society that is over-connected (like in communist countries), where the group mentality and conformity reigns, risks losing the indiviual freedoms and uniqueness which God designed each one with.
Also a society which glorifies the individual freedoms above justice risks idolizing its ego, and losing the compassion that should link the citizens together.

[49:10]
The believers are members of one family; you shall keep the peace within your family and reverence GOD, that you may attain mercy.

So in Submission the answer is not "one for all" nor is it "all for one", the answer is "All for God", a society where every individual knows his responsbilities, feels the needs of his bretheren and thinks twice before putting his self-interest above righteousness. The answer is "reverence of God".

Thus such a society will not suffer from the rediculous inequality that can be seen in Satan's kingdom today, there wouldn't be such huge gaps between the rich and the poor. Every community will try to be self-sufficient first, and if it became self-sufficient, the excess should go to the other poor communities or traded with other rich communities in an equitable, God-reverencing manner.

But this is not happening now, the rich get richer by stealing the shares of other poor nations, and the poor nations get poorer because of this theft. Ironically the rich nations then cover this theft by false donations and easing debts, when these debts are questionable to begin with!

A society based on just, equitable relations will most assuredly prosper in a natural manner.

[7:96] Had the people of those communities believed and turned righteous, we would have showered them with blessings from the heaven and the earth. Since they decided to disbelieve, we punished them for what they earned.

There is a big difference between God's natural differences, and Satan's enforced, extreme differences.



Witness the clear unbalance and inequality in Satan's kingdom.

Top 1% earn as much as the poorest 57%

Research from Branko Milanovic, published today in the Economic Journal, shows a staggering increase in global inequality, which has been rising as rapidly internationally.In a wide ranging study covering 85% of the world's population from 91 countries, Mr Milanovic has found that :

-
The world's richest 50 million people earn as much as the poorest 2.7 billion
,
the richest 1% of the world have income equivalent to the poorest 57%.

-
Four fifths of the world's population live below what countries in North America and Europe consider the poverty line.

-
The richest 10% receiving 114 times the income of the poorest 10%

(
The research, carried out for the World Bank, is published in the Economic Journal, January 2002)








 


Main Reasons

1- The main cause of  the earth's distresses is Satan, for his chaotic system leads only to disasters and inequality. Eventhough God has raised some people over others in terms of wealth, a huge gap between the rich and poor implies a transgression. Many thinkers in the world alerted us that poor countries are actually strugling now as a result of five centuries of occupation by the rich countries, during which a systematic suction of these countries resources has been commited, resulting in inequality between the north and the south.

During the 1970's huge sums of money were borrowed recklessly by  the dictators of the poor countries, resulting in a situation now were the international bankers are controlling these countries' policies through usury, needless to say that these depts with the unjust intesrest rate is the very thing Quran warned from in many verses. Because usury not only takes advantage of a poor and needy person/nation, but also is an effective tool of controling the person/nation, and dictating on him conditions and satanic commands!

Proverbs [22:7] The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

1-Riba = Usury


And because of the struggle to repay the debts and the huge interest rate, the development of the poor countries is deemed impossible.

50 years is enough
US Network for global economic justice

The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF)

Since the 1980s the debt situation has steadily worsened, so that now the total debt of the developing world equals about one-half their combined GNP and nearly twice their total annual export earnings. Because of this crushing debt-service burden, foreign governments have virtually no bargaining power when negotiating a structural adjustment program and must accept any conditions imposed by the World Bank and the IMF. And SAPs themselves, by orienting economies toward generating foreign exchange, are designed to ensure that debtor countries continue to make debt payments, further enriching Northern creditors at the expense of domestic programs in the South.

Development projects undertaken with World Bank financing typically include money to pay for materials and consulting services provided by Northern countries. U.S. Treasury Department officials calculate that for every U.S.$1 the United States contributes to international development banks, U.S. exporters win more than U.S.$2 in bank-financed procurement contracts.

Why is this bad?

Given this self-interest, the Bank tends to finance bigger, more expensive projects--which almost always require the materials and technical expertise of Northern contractors--and ignores smaller-scale, locally appropriate alternatives. The mission of the World Bank to alleviate poverty, not provide business for U.S. contractors.

The 50 Years is Enough Network calls for an end to an obscene system that considers interest payments sacrosanct while the most minimal quality of life for citizens of indebted countries becomes a luxury to be splurged on if the debts have been paid. When Charles Dickens exposed the plight of the children of imprisoned debtors in London, the society reacted in horror and quickly reformed the system. Today entire societies are imprisoned, their children starved and deprived of health care and education, and yet the logic of international account balances exonerates the bankers who insist on seeing their profit line grow at the expense of entire generations.



[2:275]
Those who charge usury are in the same position as those controlled by the devil's influence. This is because they claim that usury is the same as commerce. However, GOD permits commerce, and prohibits usury. Thus, whoever heeds this commandment from his Lord, and refrains from usury, he may keep his past earnings, and his judgment rests with GOD. As for those who persist in usury, they incur Hell, wherein they abide forever.

 

 
2-Exhausting the natural resources


God has taught us that we shall be balanced in everything without transgression, therefore we have to conserve the natural resources He bestows upon us and reverence Him. A good example is the prohibition of game hunting during the pilgrimage to Mecca, because if allowed it would exhaust the resources quickly, disabling the natural renewal process.

During and after the industrial revolution, countries turned resources-centered, forgot God and started a fierce competition to seize and use more and more, thus exhausting the natural resources and driving the world into global problems, e.g: war and global warming.

Another reason of today's poverty as noted by the experts is the policies the international organizations as the world bank require from the poor countries in order to recieve aid, these policies have tempted some countries to over-exploit the resources,

Some welfare economists claim that structural reforms required by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have sometimes led to a speeding up of the decline in natural resources

The temptation to blow natural resources is high for some countries when they struggle to increase GNP after taxes and subsidies have been removed.

The emphasis on trying to increase any one nation's GNP could be increasing the pressure to destroy future resources.

Some countries for example, have boosted timber exports in order to raise export quotas without taking into account the future implications of deforestation.

The World Bank's World Development Indicators report, released on Sunday, says that:

  • Of the world's six billion people, 1.2 billion live on less than $1 a day
  • About 10 million children under the age of five died in 1999, most from preventable diseases
  • More than 113 million children do not attend school - more of them girls than boys
  • About half a million women die each year during pregnancy and childbirth from complications that could easily be treated or prevented if they had access to appropriate care.
