Rich People's Islam

Once upon a time there were Imam Abu Hanifa (RA), Imam Malik (RA), Imam Shafe'i (RA) and Imam Hanbal (RA). Then the people followed one or another one of these four Imams. And then oil was found in the deserts. Then there were some people, followed by western educated masses, who told the rulers in the oil rich regions that forget about those four Imams (RA). There is nothing special about them. Follow Muhammed (PBUH). Isn't Muhammed (PBUH) superior to the four Imam (RA)'s? Yes! Nodes the ruler. Then follow us. We'll give you the real Islam - not the riff raff that you have been practicing so far. Forget following the four Imams follow us. Publish our books. Through out the books of those other people. They are Ash'aris. They are not Muslims. They are Maturidis. They are not Muslims. They are Sufis. They are not Muslims. They are too faith based people. We follow our intellect. Do you want to follow those people who are not intellectuals? Do you want to follow those people who do not belong to your race? What happened to your nationalism? Forget them Sufi Dufis. Follow us. We shall guide you away from Abu Hanifa(RA), Imam Malik (RA), Imam Shafe'i (RA). We are the true representatives of Imam Ahmed ibn Hanbal (RA). You are safe in our guidance.
