"Big Pharma that produces medicine for money could've never emerged in the Islamic civilization. Big Pharma just doesn't care about the people. They say the 'vaccines are safe'. But they know the statistics that a certain number of people by these utilitarian ethics will be sacrificed. There wont be any informed consent. They'll say its for the common good, But no ! Its more for the bottom line. They're going to make billions"
People have died, thousands have suffered serious reactions worldwide, various women have had miscarriages. The data shows that the countries with greater vaccine rollouts have the highest mortality post vaccination. But the vaccine rollout continues. Developed countries may somehow monitor a certain number of vaccine injuries. But in developing countries, these may not even catch the attention of the government. So the cases by default have to be much more than what we see on media.
I ask you for the love of God, are these people collateral damage for the sake of the so called 'greater good'? Is this some sort of a pagan ritual where some people have to be necessarily sacrificed in the face of a calamity? The pharmaceutical companies are minting money and they've bailed themselves out with government assured indemnity. This is the true face of Corporate Tyranny.
Now new strains have emerged across the globe that these particular vaccines do not protect against. Then what was the point of rushing with the rollout? New data shows how the vaccinated have a higher rate of transmission of the virus than the unvaccinated. Could they not take a note of all of these factors before the so called 'Emergency' authorization?
They say it was a global emergency. Then at least inform people that there would be unforeseen SERIOUS side effects (like death) associated with it and it will not protect against new mutant strains. Informed consent on novel medical technology is a human right. Failure to do so is a violation of the Nuremberg Code. People need to chose for themselves. Why weren't pregnant women warned that they may suffer from a miscarriage? Where there is risk involved there must be a choice. Global mandates without informed consent over an emergency use drug like the covid vaccines is unprecedented in human history. There is no difference between this and Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and their pogroms involving injecting untested drugs in jewish people. The only difference is that the biological pogroms were conducted over a particular ethninicity and now the atrocity has been globalized.
All this has been done just to serve corporate interests. Every civilization functions according to a particular philosophy. This civilization that has taken over the world exemplifies the Machiavellian and utilitarian vision of the 'end justifying the means' and the greater good for the greatest number (or rather the the greater good for the rich and the powerful). So whether it be in military campaigns, policy making, economic measures or medical practice, collateral damage must be expected.
In Islam we don't accept this. That is why our healthcare was patient-specific, unlike today's 'one size fits all medicine' with side effects written in fine print.
Every life is important. A physician came to the Prophet (saw) to ask him if he could use frogs to make a medicine. The Prophet (saw) prohibited it. Even a frog's life is important. SubhanAllah ! Compare this with modern bioethics and the use of human fetuses' in vaccine manufacture. Nevermind the millions of animals that have been sacrificed for medical and cosmetic corporate research.
Pharmaceutical corporations are the biggest sponsors of media channels, investing billions on advertising and promotion. Moreover, this may come as a shock to many that global agencies like the World Health Organization (WhO) receives billions in funds from Bill and Melinda gates foundation and pharmaceutical corporations. Even regulatory agencies like the NHS, FDA and CDC that are in principle required to be absolutely neutral have vaccine patents worth millions. Now how can you expect transparency and fairness in their judgement when there are such massive conflicts of interest and financial incentives involved?
Whenever money is prioritized, ethics are necessarily compromised. My criticism is not directed towards the science of vaccines per se. My criticism is directed towards the corporate vultures that prey on people's health just for their financial incentives and the Muslims who refuse to open their eyes to this 'fasaad' (corruption).
You are a Muslim and your book commands "critical thinking", questioning the mainstream narratives. Think about it Allah Most High wants you and me to even rationalize His truths. He exhorts us to reason and question our beliefs and attain certainty thereby. Allah Most High says that hellfire is promised to people who don't use their faculty of reason (7:179, 67:10). And you, O Muslim cannot even question the media? Has your IQ dipped so low? Here is your Lord saying, "Question and rationalize MY claims.", while He is the Absolute Truth. And compare the current Muslim attitude today, that they have doubts about the promise of Allah but they take corporate media narratives as the absolute truth. Allah Most High warns us repeatedly from accepting information from sinful people and those who are disobedient to Allah's commands.
"O you who believe! If a sinful person comes to you with a news, verify it, lest you harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful to what you have done." (Q 49:6)
And today we have Muslims uncritically accepting information from disbelievers.
How can Muslims today deal with the great tribulations and deception of Dajjal, the False Messiah when they cant even look past the corporate funded media narratives? If you want to survive Akhiruzzman (End Times) with your Iman as well as your physical well being ensured, start now ! Question the media.
The fact is that lay Muslims are not completely to be blamed. When Muslim academia and intelligensia dont possess and exhibit skills of critical thinking, then what to expect of the lay Muslim?
We are living in the End Times. Previously all one had to do to become a scholar of Islam was the memorization and study of religious texts. But now the times have changed drastically and the challenges are tough. Muslim scholars need a deep understanding of the present information age and the corporate takeover of the global economy. The current corporatization of the medical field is absolutely unprecedented in human history. The pharmaceutical industrial complex today is richer than many countries put together in the world.
Now there is a dire need for Muslim scholarship who along with being educated in classical Islamic literature is also well aware of these massive shifts in the world. Shaykh hamza Yusuf, Shaykh Imran Hosein belong to this category (May Allah protect them). Even the great scholar from Yemen Habib Umar (hz) has explicitly warned his huge following from taking the vaccine. Scholars from South Africa were the first few to issue a fatwa against mandetory vaccinations, followed by Mauritanian scholars. So there are critical thinkers in the Ummah Alhamdulillah, even if they are less.
