The Rotten Capitalist Social System is the Root Cause of Immorality
A new government survey has exposed the extent of extramarital affairs in the country, revealing that Kenyan men have an average of seven sexual partners whereas women have two sexual partners in their lifetime, as well as the various counties with the most cheating.
In this regard, we in Hizb ut Tahrir in Kenya wish to expound the following:
Under the framework of secular liberal system, adultery, fornication and prostitution including other immoral acts as socially and culturally acceptable and legally valid. Secularism upholds the corrupt concepts of personal freedom and freedom of association thus driving individuals to interact with the opposite sex without feeling any single cell of modesty. Therefore, extramarital affairs are a crisis of the families under this corrupt environment.
The social system of Capitalism has systematically ruined marriage, deconstructed motherhood, and fuelled the disintegration of the family bond. Secular constitutions have too failed to clearly declare criminality of adultery and prostitution which are an open air business within the secular regimes. In addition, international human rights laws give activists such as feminists a conceptual framework to fully champion these evils thus attacking Islam which has forbidden unlawful sexual intercourse and regard it as an evil way.
The Islamic social system has laid out foundations toward organizing the society based upon the correct view of the relationship between men and women that achieves cooperation between the sexes while also protecting her status. Consequently with comprehensive implementation and enforcement of the values and laws of the Islamic social system, the community’s view towards the relationship between men and women are far from the obsession with the sexual aspect and pleasure.
Furthermore, Islam has forbidden extramarital, adultery, fornication and all immoral acts. Allah (swt) says:
(وَلَا تَقْرَبُوا الزِّنَا إِنَّهُ كَانَ فَاحِشَةً وَسَاءَ سَبِيلًا) “And do not approach unlawful sexual intercourse Indeed, it is ever an immorality and is evil as a way”. [Al Isra: 32].
It is Islam which has made Taqwa as a driving force of an individual to abstain from not only adultery but from all immoral acts. Men and women are obliged to observe the high standard of modesty to abide by all the Islamic social laws in their social life. Marriage is sought to protect chastity and the sexual aspect and pleasure to that which is in line with the true purpose of the sexual instinct and beneficial for the society according to Islam.
To prevent these social evils, people should reject this secular-liberal values championed by Capitalism and its political frame of Democracy, instead they should work to establish Islam and its political system of Khilafah (Caliphate) upon the methodology of the Prophethood.
