The Gravity of Mohammed

The Gravity of Mohammed


The challenges in Iran are not just about financial aspects and governmental issues, they’re likewise about Islam. Iran in the 1960’s saw scaled down skirts, grinning ladies with revealed hair, people openly clasping hands on college grounds, and noticeable all around, there was a feeling that advance was conceivable. At that point the Shah was dismissed amid the 1979 Islamic Revolution, and the Ayatollah and imams came to control. Iran had been cleaned, come back to its Islamic foundations of Mohammed. Today, we are seeing the Persian individuals ascend again against the Iranian Islamic administration and say “no more”. In what capacity will this play out?

Over the 1400 years of Islam, there is a pattern that can be observed that I call THE GRAVITY OF MOHAMMED. It can be visualized as a cycling wave graph, or a sine wave (see figure below). An Islamic nation will cycle between secularism and hard line Sharia, a push and pull of modernity vs Mohammed or civilizations retracting and embracing the perfect example of Mohammed. It is hard to escape the Sunna of Mohammed which the Sharia implements. As long as you have the remnants of Islam in a society, Mohammed will always return. Said another way, as long as a society believes Mohammed is the prophet of Allah, Sharia will return.

Cases of this are Turkey and Iran. Turkey under Ataturk pulled far from Mohammed, just to come back with Erdogan. Iran pulled far from Sharia under the Shah just to return under the Ayatollah, and now there is a decent plausibility that the Persians may push far from the Sharia once more. In any case, this will most likely be brief as the best way to obliterate administer by Sharia is to crush the conviction that Mohammed is the prophet of Allah (the Shahada). Accordingly, the Gravity of Mohammed predicts that despite the fact that Iran will pull far from Sharia for the time being, and perhaps for a considerable length of time to come, it will fall back again to its Islamic roots. Like gravity, Mohammed is dependably there.
