The Territorial Spirit that is Puritanical Islam

The territorial spirit that underlies the Islamic faith has been playing on my mind for too long now and so I decided to share it with the wider world, enough of whom I feel are quite oblivious to it. It never ceases to amaze me when non-Muslims in particular gear up in defence of Islam regarding the territorial issue. Throwing aside the very mechanism through which Islam effectively spread globally and fast-tracking to present day, I cannot help but feel disgusted at the blatant ignorance displayed by these Muslim-sympathisers. To such people, unless Muslims are going round, in a land-grabbing surge then it is unjust to label Islam as territorial. These ignorant people have clearly missed the Islamic State story but that is not what this post will focus on.
The key word in my message is territorial spirit, not the physical seizing of property. The spirit behind Islam’s territorial nature is something I have experienced most of my recollected life. The name ‘Islam‘ itself means ‘submit’, with  the need to dominate, the need to maintain and preserve Islam. Utter tyranny. A creation of an Islamic State.
The territorial nature of Islam is entwined within politics also, where a zero sum game is played in Islam’s favour. Muslims are not expected to allow a non-believer to rule over them, let alone defy them. Puritanical Islam’s tyranny – a cruel and unjust application of force and power over those who do not adhere to its ideology has been slapped in the face over the course of 18 years as the Muslim neighbours have been unsuccessful in spreading their beliefs onto the Hussain family.
My family’s refusal to be intimidated like and our staunch stand for Christianity has shaken the very foundation of what such Literalist Muslims stand for. That is no exaggeration, I have felt it for too long now in my veins: the clenched teeth at the sight of us, the curls of fists, the hostile glares and bitter mutters, the spits and snarls, the threats to burn down our house and shoot us into the next life; has revealed to me just how territorial they are. The fact they are unwilling to let go of just the one family in non-compliance to Islam, the unforgiving and brutal attitude against my family shows just how desperately they need complete submission to their ideology. The sole ex-Muslim family living and breathing in the community they see as their own, threatens and yet evokes that territorial spirit.

    Great article, brought light to a problem that not many people are addressing. And just to clarify, I wanted to add that in Islam we are supposed to be accepting of each other, so I don’t know how those people would be so rude and call themselves muslim, it really bothers me when I hear about these muslims who not only choose to not follow the religion, but do things that oppose the teachings of the religion, in the name of that very religion they don’t follow. We are having a similar problem in Iraq right now as I’m sure you’ve heard in the news, we pray daily for them and hope that this nightmare ends soon. People really need to stop picking on the minority.

      Hey! Thanks for reading, appreciate your comment. It’s frustrating that in the 21st century we still have the issue of many Muslims following a literal form of Islam that is completely intolerant of non-Muslims. I’m actually writing about my experiences in the UK where this happens more often than most people realise so it’s on another scale for Christians and minorities in places such as the Middle East!

    Heya are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi! No I’m actually very bad at technology so have no coding knowledge! Once you set up your blog on wordpress you get step-by-step instructions on how to set it up. I just googled ‘word press blog’ and a ton of help sites cropped up. Hope that helps 🙂

    I do enjoy the way you have presented this specific difficulty plus it really does present me personally some fodder for thought. Nevertheless, coming from what I have personally seen, I simply trust as other opinions pile on that folks continue to be on point and in no way start on a soap box regarding some other news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this excellent piece and while I can not go along with the idea in totality, I respect your standpoint.
