The monotheism included in the Muslim profession of faith is a liberating principle of reason. Firstly because it places the divine beyond human representations and conceptions, and therefore undermines all forms of fetishism and superstition.
The monotheism included in the Muslim profession of faith is a liberating principle of reason. Firstly because it places the divine beyond human representations and conceptions, and therefore undermines all forms of fetishism and superstition. It forbids granting real power to beings and things, decreeing that nothing happens without the will of the Creator. Finally, he makes man master of the things that God has placed in his hands.
Then, by the vigor of its dynamism: by affirming that there is no god..., it calls on man to break the chains of ignorance and exploitation. He told him to refuse to bow down to his fellow man. He told him to refuse to bow down to his fellow man. He restores his dignity. And this precisely because he adds: ...if not God. Man is thus free to the exact extent that he submits himself to God Alone. And his freedom is proportional to the degree of his submission.
The first part of the shahada, that is to say of the Muslim testimony of faith, is "la ilaha", no god. Negation that reason understands. Whenever our imagination or our senses fix an image which would signify the divine, reason tirelessly says "no", and overthrows the idol. This categorical "no" is a refusal of all the gods. It is part of all areas of life: it overthrows ideologies and the cult of people. He denounces the pretensions of kings and dictators, he transgresses the fallacious laws by which man enslaves man. He accuses usurious practices and the exploitation of poor countries, he mercilessly attacks the cult of gold.
In short, to any being who claims to dress up in the mantle of divinity, to any manifestation that takes on the appearance of a ritual, he opposes a condemnation that is without appeal.
