Default Liberalism, Secularism, and Globalization ? Explained by Shaykh Uthaymeen

Liberalism, Secularism, and Globalization
Explained by Shaykh Uthaymeen (1421 H)
Questioner:*Is it permissible to apply the term secularist, or liberal upon the person who boast with these labels and he says he is a secularist, and a liberal and he openly opposes the implementation of Sharia?
Shaykh Uthaymeen: Who is the liberal?
Questioner:* The one who calls to absolute freedom without restrictions.
Shaykh Uthaymeen: It is obligatory upon the leaders prosecute the likes of these individuals and sentence them according to what the Sharia requires. Because the person who calls to absolute freedom from every restriction even if it is a religious based restriction; then this person is a disbeliever.
What is the meaning of us saying: You are free, pray or don’t pray, fast or don’t fast, pay Zakat or don’t pay Zakat?
This means the person denies an obligation from the obligations of Islam; rather he denies all the obligations of Islam. He allows fornication and homosexuality, and alcohol; is this not the case? How can this person be a Muslim? This person is an apostate, a disbeliever. This person is to be judged (by the Muslim ruler). He is told to return to the religion of Islam and keephis evil away from the Muslims if he does not do so; then he is executed (by the authority of the Muslim ruler).
As for the secularist; I do not have awareness of them, if you have knowledge of them, then describe them to us and we will judge by what we see is necessary.
Questioner:* They are those who view religion and government should be separated.
Shaykh Uthaymeen: These are lesser than those mentioned first; as they are more dangerous.
If the country does not rule by the religion of Islam then it is lost. And Subhana Allah the Exalted, every verse in the Quran and every Hadith from the Sunnah, all of it proves that Islam is the country. Meaning it is obligatory upon the country to apply Islam upon itself and its laws, and its people.
In any case: I advise my brothers who are true believers to be firm in the face of these movements. Because now the disbelievers, due to what Allah the Exalted has given them from industrial power and control over the people they want to remove the Muslims from their religion, by using words that resemble the truth but they are not the truth.
Like globalization for example. Globalization means: All the people are free and they are all the same. The markets in the metropolis of disbelief and the markets in the metropolis of Islam are the same. Sell what you want, buy what you want; you have freedom in everything.
Thus it is upon the Muslim—upon the ruler first and the people second—to combat globalization, and to not easily accept it. Because the end result is it leads to the Jews, Christians, Magians, apostates, Muslims, and hypocrites are being the same; globalization of the world. Thus it is upon us to reject this ideology. And all praises belong to Allah, perhaps if the rulers find pressure from the people he will respond to them; even the rulers who do not care to apply the Sharia. As for the rulers who give importance to applying the Sharia and advocating it in every opportunity, then we hope the cure will come from their midst and they will not require and cure from the outside.
