Why I Do Not Subscribe to the Conspiratorial View of History

Rarely do we stop and think about our general approach to looking at history. Although, it is very easy to do. All one has to do is pick an event or an apparent turning point in world history, and then ask oneself what is cause and what is effect. Let me illustrate with some examples:

The American War of Independence. Was it the result of one great leader's ability to lead the militias across the Delaware river to defeat the British in New Jersey? Or was it the result of a think tank of great men who, after reflecting on world history, government, politics, and oppression back home, developed a beautiful system of checks and balances and formulated the Constitution? Or, was it a movement of the masses driven by the pains of oppression and economic hardship to resist injustice? Or, was it the plotting of a number of influential European statesmen, bankers, and businessmen who wished to establish the first freemasonic state?

This example is not unique. It sums up some of the predominant views of history. One, is the "Great Man" or the "Great Woman" view of history. This approach tends to say that Washington was a phenomenal leader, and the victory over the British may not have happened were it not for him. The same would go for Ghandi, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Jr, Malcolm X, Jesus (peace be upon him), etc. This approach says that situations turned out as they did because of these individuals and their ability to stir the people and stand up to adversity. It was their charisma, their leadership, their insight, etc.

Another view of history is the materialist view. Historical materialism assumes economic forces to be the cause of historical change. Economic pressures create the need for a leader to arise, and someone rises to the challenge. This view says that if it wasn't George Washington, then it would've been someone else, because the times called for it. The high taxes, trade restrictions, and tariffs imposed by Britain created the economic and monetary environment necessary for change.

The accidental view of history says that things happen at random, by chance. An earthquake or drought strikes an area by chance and the people respond accordingly. Wars are driven by the greedy or the insane, who, by chance come to power.

The conspiratorial view of history essentially says that every major war, depression, and famine was the result of planning and plotting by any number of world controllers, be they international bankers, members of secret societies, etc.

I subscribe to none of these views. I approach history and world events with a deep belief in qadr. The Arabic root for qadr implies "a specified amount with particular qualities, all well defined". In the religious sense, it is the reality that nothing happens except what Allah wills. That Allah has full knowledge of things before they occur, and that Allah allows those things to take place. If He did not allow them to take place, they would never occur. It is much better said in an article called Belief in Qadr by Sheikh Ja'far Idris:

He knows before creating it, that He is going to create it and that it shall be of such and such magnitude, quality or nature etc. and specifies the time of its coming into being and passing away, and the place of its occurrence. If so, then one who believes in the true God should believe that there are no accidents in nature. If something disagreeable happens to him, he should say "God qad-dara (ordained), and He did what He willed" and not waste himself over wishing that it had not occurred, or worrying why it should occur. If on the other hand something agreeable happens to him he should not boast of it, but thank God for it.

Allah says in the Qur'an:

"No affliction occurs in the earth or in yourselves, but it is in a Book, before We create it; that is easy for God; that you may not grieve for what escapes you, nor rejoice (vaingloriously) in what has been given to you, God loves not any man proud and boastful." [Holy Qur'an 57:23]

So, I do not subscribe to a conspiratorial view of history. But because I do not approach history in this manner, it does not mean that I do not believe in conspiracies. I do believe that there are attempts to alter world politics, economics, etc. But this does not mean that their conspiring is what actually drives world events. No. It is Allah Who steers history, not corporations, not governments, not the UN, not the Israeli lobby, and not the freemasons. Their plottings may, on the surface, appear to succeed and appear to turn out the way they intended, but this is not the case. Allah says in the Holy Qur'an that

"Although they plan, Allah also plans. And Allah is the Best of Planners." [Holy Qur'an 8:30]

Well, then, one may ask why would I even set out to develop a page such as The reason stems from my belief in the Day of Judgment. On that Day, each and every individual will be called upon by Allah to answer for what he/she did, said, intended, believed, etc. That being the Reality which we will all face one Day, I am concerned about the questions I will be asked. In serving and obeying Allah, we must do what is right and forbid what is wrong. This is one of the things we will be questioned about. Not only do what is right, but also, forbid what is wrong and evil. My development of and is a small contribution of mine to forbidding what is wrong in the world and, in so doing, to point out the trends in the system which will ultimately welcome the AntiChrist.

Allah knows best.
