look into the role of Psychaitary.
The Role of Psychiatry &
"Self-help" in Instituting the New World
Intentions and Disclaimers: Please
do not misunderstand my intentions in writing
this chapter. I do not intend to offend those
who have chosen the professions stated in this
article, nor do I mean to imply that such individuals
are evil or consciously bringing evil about. My
intention is to call all of us, myself included,
to a critical eye. In this day and age, things
are most often not what they seem. And it is for
this reason that I am one to analyze and critique
much of what I see, hear, and experience. This
is not to say that I advocate judging people with
a "holier than thou" attitude (a charge
most often brought against any spiritual or religious
position on matters). But rather to judge actions,
situations, choices, experiences, and trends to
their degree of rightness, wrongness, and appropriateness.
With that said, what is to follow represents some
of my own personal observations and thoughts.
I am a Muslim, a physician, a male, a husband,
a father, a son, a white American, and I have
a BA in Africana Studies; However, my opinions
stated below reflect my own personal biases. My
views are not meant to represent the views of
anyone of the above groups to which I belong.
Though I seek only the pleasure of our Creator,
Allah, I do not speak for Muslims or Islam. I
am male, but I do not speak for men. And I am
a physician, but I do not speak for doctors.
For a long time, I considered entering
the field of psychiatry after completing my medical
school training. I was quite interested and felt
that I had a lot to offer the profession and the
people it set out to serve. However, I came to
realize that the professions of psychiatry and
its many ancillary disciplines (which include
psychology, social work, case management, addiction
counseling, advertising, and many others) are
but subsets of a much larger force attempting
to direct human society and human history.
Some may call this force the New World Order,
some may call it materialism, others may call
it globalization, and still others may call it
progress. Whatever it is, it serves as a trend
toward separating out truth and falsehood, spiritual
and material, good and evil, and, ultimately,
Christ and AntiChrist. The world is being wrenched
apart into two camps, and our everyday lives are
This is not an attempt to paint some elaborate,
fantastic, other worldly, apocalyptic picture
of these times. It is merely to call us all to
examine what is happening around us, in context.
Our world, as we live it today, is disjointed
to such a degree that we do not see the common
threads uniting our entertainment, world events,
history, our own personal emotions, our interpersonal
relationships, our careers, our preferences for
soft drinks, etc. These things are not separate.
It is only presented that way...intentionally.
Psychiatry, self-help groups, and the like
are but cogs in a much larger machine set out
to bring about the New World Order and to, thus,
pave the way for the Masih ad-Dajjal, or AntiChrist.
These professions serve to further disjoint our
world through the multi-leveled destruction of
the family, through marginalizing religion, through
manipulating language to direct opinion (and "fact"),
through normalizing that which is not normal,
and via instilling false hope and trust in a system
set out to destroy us.
Please forgive the reference to "priesthood"
in the title, but it is the way in which psychiatrists
and their colleagues (physicians included) normalize
deviancy that makes the analogy appropriate. People
are leaving the world's religions in herds. And
whenever something is removed from an individual's
life, it is most often replaced with something
else. As a Muslim, when I do something wrong,
I simply ask God for forgiveness after confessing
my wrong to Him through prayer. Then I set out
to do my best to change my ways. Similarly (to
some degree), Catholics seek forgiveness of God
through confession. Openly, they admit their sins
to a priest who then gives them the regimen to
obtain God's forgiveness, and then they set out
to change their ways as best as they know how.
Psychiatry and self help groups serve a similar
function, however on a more worldly level and
with worldly criteria and values, nearly entirely
divorced from any religious or prophetic traditions.
And while the religious approach is based (at
least remotely) on revealed literature and guidance,
the disciplines of psychology, psychiatry, and
self help are based solely on self and worldliness.
And just as the self and the world are subject
to change, so too are the worldly criteria of
separating what is right from what is wrong, what
is normal from what is abnormal, and what is appropriate
from what is not appropriate.
Psychiatrists, psychologists, and group counselors
have replaced the confession boxes with group
sessions, psychoanalysis, self help books, and
medications. And they, themselves, have become
the "priests" to which we confess our
sins. They are Dajjalic priests because they do
not call to guidance or truth. Their regimen for
forgiveness is for you to forgive only yourself,
and thus allow you to seek fulfillment of your
desires (good and bad) uninhibited. Their regimen
is to teach the one confessing to turn his or
her natural feelings of guilt and remorse into
affirmation and adoration of the very sin he or
she set out to confess and correct.
Homosexuality is perhaps the most blatantly obvious
example of such a phenomenon. A few short decades
ago, homosexuality was listed in psychiatric and
medical texts as a disease and was treated as
such. Psychiatry, medicine, religion, and society
were all in agreement. Such people needed help.
Over the past thirty years, the tables have turned...The
predominant view presented by physicians, psychiatrists,
psychologists, group counselors, and the media
is that religion and society have been wrong for
the past 3000 years or so. Obviously, indirectly
implying that religion is wrong has far deeper
implications than allowing a deviant practice
to flourish and become "normal" and
"okay". It also calls the entire spiritual
order and prophetic tradition into question...precisely
the goal of a Dajjalic order.
When it comes to other sexual deviancies such
as transvestitism, beastiality, pedophilia, etc,
these disorders are still held as such. However,
even this is changing. The more these things are
presented on talk shows and in movies, the more
normal they are becoming. But the realms of psychiatry
and self help have yet to call such practices
"lifestyle choices" or normal.
of the Tongue:
A far worse and more subtle meddling of
psychiatry and its subsidiary disciplines revolves
around the sins of the tongue. Because of the
intense focus on the self and one's feelings,
much of the treatment for psychiatric and addictive
disorders involves talking about emotions, interpersonal
relationships, impulses, childhood upbringing
etc. This opens the door to say things about people
when they are not present. In Islam, to say something
about someone which they would not want you to
say, is a major sin, regardless of whether or
not what you are saying is true. This is called
backbiting. It does not heal any wounds, it just
makes new ones. It is divisiveness and only serves
to tear people apart. Again, precisely the goal
of a Dajjalic system.
Psychiatry, psychology, self help groups, and
addiction counseling are not alone in their sanctioning
and normalizing of backbiting. It's on the news,
it is in comedy shows and movies, and now it is
used for treatment by the above said groups. This
"talk it out" approach to personal problems
deepens the rift between generations, between
family members and loved ones, and of course between
groups of people.
Even the dead are not spared. This is especially
the case in addiction counseling where recovering
addicts are encouraged to dredge up early family
experiences of abuse or neglect on the part of
their parents or other caregivers. Again "talking
it out" is portrayed as a purging of the
feelings, that somehow these things will up and
go away after talking about them. But they do
not. I have seen it with my own eyes. I have seen
one member of a family go through the early phases
of recovery and then feel it necessary to discuss
their new-found revelations regarding their childhood
with their other brothers and sisters. It did
nothing but stir up old bones and destroy the
nostalgia of "Mom and Dad". Perhaps
this is why the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon
him) instructed us not to speak ill of the dead,
saying that it has no effect on the dead and only
hurts the living.
Psychiatry and its underlings manipulate
language. Definitions are changed, and with them,
public opinion. In a sense, it becomes a form
of social engineering...on par, and often in conjunction
with, the advertising industry. A few examples...
With the move away from "judgmental"
language and a move away from religious terminology,
the Dajjalic priesthood prefers the use of the
phrase "sex outside of wedlock" over
words such as "fornication" and "adultery".
Fornication and adultery are far too harsh. After
all, such words are deterrents in and of themselves,
let alone their religious connotations. What better
way to destroy the family than to encourage fornication
and adultery? In this Dajjalic system, teachers
and administrators introduce concepts such as
"falling in love" and "dating"
to children in preschool and kindergarten. Of
course, with loads of assistance from the television.
(Tell-Lie-Vision or Dajjalavision...take your
In fact, "adolescence" itself, is an
invention of modern times. With the arbitrary
definition of adulthood at 18 or 21, the time
between puberty and participatory adulthood must
be accounted for. Traditional societies differentiated
between adulthood and maturity, with the onset
of adulthood quite logically set at puberty, the
age at which an individual becomes capable of
having children. Nowadays, biological and societal
adulthood are off by about seven or eight years.
When young, biological adults begin to express
their adulthood and individuality, they are called
adolescents. They are then labeled rebellious
"Rebellion" itself has changed. Thanks
to the logical conclusion of a Dajjalic priesthood
operating in a capitalist global economy. Rebellion
has become an expression of fashion and tastes
now rather than a true resistance to a system
or government. Dressing differently, in-your-face
attitude equipped with the appropriate tattoos
and earrings, and listening to the latest in "alternative"
or "underground" music what we are taught
The psychiatrists, psychologists, and sociologists
who serve the advertising wing of the Dajjalic
priesthood, have effectively marketed rebellion.
It has become fashionable and trendy. And as such,
easily manipulated. The primary goal is profit,
and this is obvious. However, a little less obvious
is the secondary goal...namely, preventing true
rebellion. The framework is set. There will be
no discussion of alternatives to capitalism or
globalization or the two-party system.
The self-proclaimed bastion of family entertainment
(or should I say family programming), Disney,
has produced numerous cartoon feature films with
rebellion against the family as a dominant underlying
theme. As I sit here typing this paragraph I cannot
recall even one Disney film devoid of a rebel-against-your-family
theme. Most, if not all, show a hero or heroine
who disobeys their parents or societal norms,
things go bad, and then everything turns out fine
in the end. Think about it...In Aladdin, Princess
Jasmine leaves the palace, finds a "street
rat", falls in love, he saves the day, and
in the end the father changes the law. In Mulan,
she breaks tradition and takes her father's place
in the military, saves the kingdom, and in the
end dad is proud. The same holds true for the
Lion King and the Little Mermaid. This underlying
message exerts far more impact than those alleged
sexual allusions in Disney films. In fact, I wonder
if those things are only distracters from the
real problems with Disney programming the family
(I mean Disney family Programming). Change the
language, change the people, change society. This
is social engineering.
It is narrated on the authority of Abu
Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace
be upon him) said: Islam started as something
strange, and it will revert to its (old position)
of being strange. So give good tidings to the
stranger. (Sahih Muslim Book 1, # 0270)
During my third year of medical school I was amazed
to find out that "religious preoccupation"
was deemed by the psychiatric world to be a sign
of mental illness, often related to psychosis.
This term is often applied to the religious practice
of Muslims, and in fact, anyone who practices
their religion as a way of life rather than services
to be attended on the weekends. Quite ironically,
this element of the Dajjalic priesthood has actually
switched some age-old definitions...homosexuality
has become a lifestyle choice and religious practice
has become a deviant thought pattern, or at the
very least, a mere component of culture.
The excerpt below comes from a monthly, sometimes
bimonthly, class of medical literature called
Clinics. These books often serve as valuable updates
for practicing physicians in their respective
fields. The quotes regarding Muslims and Obsessive-Compulsive
Disorder (OCD) are quite telling...
Islamic religion teaches that a person may be
tortured in his or her grave and after death if
his or her wrongdoings outnumber his or her good
deeds. Obsessional fears concern inability to
control one's own harmful impulses. These were
'invariably attributed to the devil (Shaitin),
who is thought to force them on individuals whose
faith is not strong enough to counter the evil.'
Similarly, in studies of OCD patients seen in
outpatient psychiatry clinics in Saudi Arabia
and Egypt, the most common themes of obsessions
and compulsions were religious.
Muslim upbringing puts an emphasis on religious
rituals, including ritual cleansing before prayer
five times a day as well as warding off blasphemous
thoughts through repetition of phrases such as
'I seek refuge with the Lord from the accursed
satan.' The symptomatology of OCD, here as elsewhere,
then involves repetition and internal struggle
with forbidden thoughts, as these engender the
greatest anxiety for the individual and are most
liable to become part of vicious cycles of effort
and failure to control. The congruence between
religious belief and practice and OC symptoms
also probably contributes to relatively low rates
of insight into the irrationality of the symptoms:
in the context of orthodox Muslim religion moderate
repetitions of protective thoughts and actions
appear normal, at least to the afflicted person,
although others may well recognize that the levels
of religious preoccupation, scrupulosity, and
anxiety are abnormal. (from <i>The Psychiatric
Clinics of North America, Cultural Psychiatry</i>,
Vol 18, #3, September 1995, emphasis is my own)
It is important to remember that this is taken
from medical literature, from which your psychiatrists
and physicians are learning. What is problematic
is not so much the label of OCD being associated
with religious ritual, but more so our inability
to refute it based on the very definition of the
disorder. Our objections to the above concepts
will undoubtedly be attributed to the "low
rates of insight into the irrationality of the
symptoms". Our "actions appear normal",
at least to us, "the afflicted".
...What better way to implement a worldly order,
than to disqualify the religious order.
The Role of Social Work and the Case Manager:
I have seen it time and time again. A young,
energetic, idealistic college student fresh with
new ideas and unparalleled drive starts off on
a career directed at social change and impact...social
work. They study hard in college, they debate
their friends and colleagues in late night dorm
room discussions on social issues, and bring a
few under their sway of idealism. They graduate,
enter the workforce, and become a frustrated,
demotivated, paper-pushing machine.
I have intense respect and admiration for all
I have met who have taken this course. Social
work is a demanding profession that requires a
special soul to pursue it. But I have seen the
light die. Over and over again. I have seen it
die. And it is certainly not the fault of the
social worker. It is the fault of the parameters
already in place. It is the fault of a systemic
plague that is not remediable with a new committee
or a new governmental department. The problem
is multi-leveled. One, the system, with all of
its laws, issues of funding, and mounds of paperwork.
Two, the workload of the social worker, being
forced to spread his or herself too thin to make
the impact on any one life that they had hoped
to make on the world upon entering the profession.
And three, the very people it sets out to serve
are being directed by media, materialism, and
mental colonization that shapes the lens with
which they view the world. Furthermore, the relentless
paperwork and the long lines make for a frustrated
My point? Social workers and case managers are
a special group of people, allies in our fight
against the Dajjalic influences of the New World
Order. However, their nine-to-five shifts as they
exist today make them the altar boys of the Dajjalic
priesthood, ringing the bell when they are told
to ring the bell, and opening the book when their
priests command them to open the book. The ones
who will help will be the ones who struggle to
maintain the family unit and to foster its growth.
Those who simply call around to find the nursing
home nearest the family are not doing what they
set out to do in the first place by entering such
a noble profession.
