Birth Control Leading to Extinction of “White Man” in Europe
 
By: Hussain Khan, Tokyo

 

Even though it is clearly prohibited in Quran and Sunnah in unequivocal terms, unfortunately, the Chief Justice (CJ) and the Prime Minister of Pakistan (PM), who has a sincere desire to develop Pakistan on the model of Medinah State, both have started an evil campaign to reduce birth rates in our country through birth control and family planning measures The very concept of regarding children as a burden, and not as a blessing of God, had been always abhorrent in the entire history of mankind in all religions, cultures, civilizations, countries and societies until 19th century.

 

This evil thought of reducing population was presented for the first time in history in early 19th century by Malthus in England. His theory and all his predictions proved totally false and baseless after 40 years due to the tremendous advances in technology in all European countries. But the decadent, morally bankrupt, Europeans, who were abandoning Christian teachings  in large numbers in favor of materialistic, godless, secular  Western civilization liked this idea very much. Considering it a short-cut to fight against poverty, all of them speedily jump started to adopt all possible measures of birth control and family planning. It suited to the materialistic parents in a godless Western society to limit their household expenses to 2 children only in order to maintain their high standard of living. This was a Western value  adhered to. Islamic value is just opposite to it.

 

However, they became prosperous and the standards of living of their populations also improved and were raised to very high levels. But it was not due to their population control measures. Thanks to their other positive efforts to discover new technologies and the Industrial Revolution. No country in the world today boasts that its economic development was due to success of their birth control and family planning measures. All of them will tell you the story of their innumerable positive measures they took to improve their agriculture, industry, corruption-free good governance, of their efforts to discover and develop natural resources in their countries, of their implementation of free education to all children and establishment of high-standard educational and technological institutions to produce high-skilled labor and specialists in various technological fields, of developing infrastructure, roads, railways, bridges, tunnels, dams and communication networks in their countries, of their efficiency in collecting taxes, and of their efforts to increase exports and reduce imports and so on. In their economic development story, you will find the contribution of negative measures like birth control and family extremely negligible and near zero. It had no effect on the development of the country, but the individual families indulged in and enjoyed hedonistic life style due to lower  burden of children expenses. But this hedonistic life style is also an extra reason for the the incoming death of the Western civilization and the extinction of the 'White Man'.

 

If our CJ and the PM prefer to close their eyes to the history of mankind before 19th century, they should, at least, have a look on the consequences of their recommended birth control and family planning measures during the last 200 years after the 19th century. What were the historic lessons of this experiment in all West European countries?

 

Western Europe had been the pioneer and leader of the world in this respect since then.

Now have a look on its results. Where do they stand now? As a result of adopting birth control and family planning measures during the last 200 years, they are now heading towards an unavoidable disaster of their own making in the form of their own extinction possibility from the surface of the earth forever.

                                                                                                    

Moreover, despite realizing the incoming pain of this disaster, they have additional pain of their helplessness and inability to avoid it. They are just lamenting on it, but cannot find any way out of it. They have no solution how to avoid the extinction of their White race forever. They know Europe is now going to be wiped out of the ‘White Man’. But they have no way out to rescue him from extinction.

 

President of France, has elaborated the reason for such an unfortunate helpless situation in the following words:

 

Douthat is referring to two speeches by the French president, Emmanuel Macron. In 2017, Macron called Africa's problems "civilizational" and lamented that they "have seven or eight children per woman." In a second speech at the Gates Foundation last week, Macron said: "Present me the woman who decided, being perfectly educated, to have seven, eight or nine children." The question Macron implicitly raised is: How can Europe manage its own educated people with their low birth rates while confronting massive African and Middle Eastern fertility and immigration? It seems that Europe is in a demographic struggle with the rest of the world, and can only lose.”----------------- Europe's Crisis of Survival by Giulio Meotti : https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/13186/europe-crisis-survival

 

Here we come across with one more additional factor, other than falling birth rates, leading to the extinction of the 'White Man'. It is ingrained in his civiilizational values and in his cultural norms. These are totally different from those in Muslim culture and non-Muslim cultures of other Asians and Africans. Attitudes towards the birth of children are completely different and divergent in each culture.

 
We can call Western civilization a new religion of materialism without any Prophet and without any sacred Book like any other religious Book, as Quran, Bible, Bhagwat Geeta and others. It preaches its own different values or norms as a religion, as its values and norms are quite distinct and different from those of other religions. This difference of values is what that has led Europe to an extreme disaster of its own making towards its unavoidable extinction forever from the face of the earth..
 
President of France, Emmanuel Macron is clearly admitting his defeat graciously. In the demographic struggle with the rest of the world, he truly says, Europe can only lose. The reason he explains is that no European educated woman will accept to have 5, 7, or 9 children as compared to the women in Asia and Africa. Remember, Bin Laden, father of Osama, did not stop even after 9 children and never resorted to any birth control or family planning measure. He was extremely happy and boastful for having 22 children. Figure 9 is the limit of French President's imagination. He cannot think of any parents who could go on having more children even after having nine of them.
 
Cultural norms in the Muslim societies all over the world are same everywhere  that with more and more children, they will have more and more blessings from God. Bin Laden way of thinking, as with all other Muslims, was that God made him wealthy because of the large number of his children. Even among the non-Muslim Asian and African societies, large number of children are regarded as a security for their old age. More and more children are regarded as better and better security and insurance for their old age.
 
But the godless Western materialist civilization has an opposite cultural norm than that of the Muslims or that of the non-Muslim Asian and African cultures in this regard. And this difference of cultural norms is responsible for the West inability and helplessness to rescue the 'White Man' from his complete annihilation from the surface of the earth. The materialist Western civilization teaches to all its modern adherents that it will be difficult to maintain a high standard of living if you have more than one or two children. This is the cultural norm of Europe and of all the followers of the Western values whether they are living in Japan, in India, or in a Muslim society like Pakistan or in any country of the world.
 
The same thinking has been revealed by our CM and the PM. Unfortunately, instead of having faith in the truth of the Islamic values, like all the followers of the West, they also believe and are courageously preaching the godless Western Civilization value to decrease the number of children beyond two.
  
In this regard, there is a  Hadith of our Prophet (PBUH) especially about the birth of girls as the girls had been the most unwanted beings in most ancient cultures as well. Godless Western civilization regards birth of girls as an extra burden on their resources. But this Hadith encourages the birth of girls. It is an Islamic value opposite to Western and other cultural norms.
 
Among the Hindus in India, it has become a very common practice now to get abortions, if their doctor predicts the possible birth of a daughter. Hindu parents will not request for abortion, if their doctor predicts the possibility of a male birth. It is because that they regard more boys as security for their old age, But in case of daughters, they have to pay a lager handsome amount as dowry to get them married.  The cost incurred on the education and training of the girls is also wasted as they cannot get any return on it. In case of boys, all their cost incurred on their education and technical training is returned to them when these boys start earning their livelihood. There are similar cultural norms problems in China, especially when it was practicing One-Child policy till recently. Hindu, Chinese and Western cultures are all one and the same in respect of abortions of girls. Only Islamic values are different from them, as it will be clear from the Quran and Hadith teachings.
 
In a different context,  a Quranic verse was revealed in Surah 81-Attakveer (Verse 8-9):
 
 وَإِذَا الْمَوْءُودَةُ سُئِلَتْ ﴿٨﴾ بِأَيِّ ذَنبٍ قُتِلَتْ ﴿٩﴾
 "and when the infant girl, buried alive, is asked for what crime she was slain?"  
 
 Not only the Hindus and Chinese will be asked  this question, but every father who has ordered abortion of his would-be daughter will be answerable. What will be the answers of the fathers of the slain girls in the Hereafter, when they will  be asked  "...for what crime she was slain?". The answer of the Pakistani fathers may be that we were so guided by our CJ and the PM. Will our CM and the PM have answers for thousands of such infant-killings through abortions that may take place in Pakistan due to their campaign for birth control. Abortions are just killings of live infants. Who will be responsible for such thousands of infant killings in our country? 
 
As regards an Islamic value about this matter, a special Hadith of the Prophet (PBUH) regarding girls purports, more or less, the meaning that if a person has more than two or three daughters and looks after them carefully from their childhood up to their marriages, he will be bestowed with more and more higher rewards in the Hereafter enabling him to reach higher and higher upper levels in heaven. Compare the difference of Islamic values with that of the Hindu values and that of the Western values about the female births.
 
Moreover, in addition to a lot of other injunctions in Quran and Hadith, above Quranic verse and Hadith is also a sufficient evidence that birth control concept is just opposite to what has been taught above about the childbirth in Islam, especially about the girls.
 
If immigrants with such divergent cultural norms settle in France or in any other European country, can European parents compete with such parents? French President says that such a demographic struggle will ultimately end in the defeat of the Europeans. Culturally, it is impossible for Europeans to think of having more than 2 children. Therefore, eventually and finally, it will result in the extinction of ‘White Man’. It will be a mathematical result of two competing birth rates and divergent moral values of different cultures. The birth rates of 'White Man' are constantly falling year by year below the replacement level as compared to that of Asians and Africans, which had  been and will consistently remain above the replacement level of 2.1. It is because of the difference and divergence in the cultural norms between these two groups.
 
The  inherent materialistic outlook of one group does not allow it to have more than two children, The other group regards them a blessing of God, Who will be responsible for their sustenance as well. Their cultural norms give them the relief that the Author of lives of the children will also take care of their sustenance. The Creator, Who has poured Life in a piece of meat and has designed special form and shape for each incoming  human being to start his life on the planet earth as a living being, will surely and certainly take care of all requirement of His creatures since their birth until death.
 
But the Western norm is completely against it. As we come to the conclusion from the French President's explanation, as a representative of Western thought and cultural norms, that Europeans cannot avoid the ultimate fate of extinction of the 'White Man' despite fully knowing and realizing the repercussions of this incoming disaster. It is because of the Western norm of birth control for not giving birth to more than one or two children..  
 
Almost all leaders, intellectuals, journalists and authors have abandoned to this ultimate fate of their civilizational, cultural and physical death. A lot of articles, videos and books are published in the West since last 20 years lamenting the death and the suicide of of Europe and the West, resulting in permanent vanishing of the 'White Man' from the face of the earth.  We can observe some of their thoughts in the following passages:
 
As Lord Sacks recently said, "falling birth rates could spell the end of the West". Europe, as it is aging, no longer renews its generations, and instead welcomes massive numbers of migrants from the Middle East, Africa and Asia, who are going to replace the native Europeans, and who are bringing cultures with radically different values about sex, science, political power, culture, economy and the relation between God and man.------“The substitution of Population by by Giulio Meotti  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/8761/europe-population-substitution
 
The statistical projections about the alarming future of the demographic decline of the indigenous European people appear irrefutable. The vice president of the European Central Bank, Viktor Constancio, called it the "demographic suicide" of Europe's aging society----- https://www.reuters.com/article/us-ecb-policy-immigration/ecb-vice-president-says-immigra..
 
“Europe is committing suicide. Or at least its leaders have decided to commit suicide. Whether the European people choose to go along with this is, naturally, another matter. When I say that Europe is in the process of killing itself I do not mean that the burden of European Commission regulation has become overbearing or that the European Convention on Human Rights has not done enough to satisfy the demands of a particular community. I mean that the civilization we know as Europe is in the process of committing suicide and that neither Britain nor any other Western European country can avoid that fate because we all appear to suffer from the same symptoms and maladies. As a result, by the end of the lifespans of most people currently alive Europe will not be Europe and the peoples of Europe will have lost the only place in the world we had to call home.”--------------Murray, Douglas (2017-05-04). The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity,
 
“Yet, a hard look at the demographic and moral trends in Europe does not inspire confidence that this is a winning fight for those for whom the Holy Father speaks. For a Christianity that teaches that God is the author of life and that no one has a right to take innocent life is not a growth stock in Europe. By 2050, over 10 percent of the population of the four largest nations in Western Europe—Britain, France, Germany, and Italy—will be over eighty years old. Will Europe’s workers, whose taxes must rise and whose retirements must be put off to subsidize the pensions and health care costs of this burgeoning aged population, insist that the sick and senile elderly in their eighties and nineties be kept alive?”
 
Why do predictions of the Death of the West not belong on the same back shelf as the predictions of “nuclear winter” and “global warming”? Answer: the Death of the West is not a prediction of what is going to happen, it is a depiction of what is happening now. First World nations are dying. They face a mortal crisis, not because of something happening in the Third World, but because of what is not happening at home and in the homes of the First World. Western fertility rates have been falling for decades. Outside of Muslim Albania, no European nation is producing enough babies to replace its population. As years slip by, that birthrate is not stabilizing; it is falling. In a score of countries, the old are already dying off faster than the young are being born. There is no sign of a turnaround. Now the absolute numbers of Europeans have begun to fall. This is not a matter of prophecy, but of mathematics. The steeper and longer the dive, the more difficult it is to pull out. The First World has to turn this around, and soon, or it will be overwhelmed by a Third World that is five times as populous and will be ten times as populous.”-------------------------New York Times Bestseller in 2010 by Buchanan, Patrick J.. “The Death of the West” (p. 112).  
 
Also please see a 6-minute video of an European about ‘The Suicide of Europe’ on the following link:
 
 
Above are the consequences of birth control and family planning measures taken in the Western European countries during the last 200 years since 19th century.
 
Allah has completely eliminated several nations from the earth through typhoon, earthquake and other means leading to sudden death of these nations. Quran mentions as to how the nations of Aad, Thamud, Loot, Nooh were exterminated by the wrath of God resulting in their sudden deaths. But in case of Europeans and other developed nations of today, He has chosen to punish them in the style of slow poisoning. They are suffering from the wrath of God in a very slow and silent style. He is eliminating them slowly, slowly to ultimate extinction over a span of about 3 centuries, from 19th to 22nd. There may not be a single descendant of any ‘White Man’ in 23rd century or even much earlier than that.
 
It is a self-inflicted death of their entire race due to their own evil policies of birth control and family planning. They are just gazing at their slow-moving death but cannot help themselves and are unable to control it, as President of France says no educated woman of France, (or any other developed country) will ever accept to bear several children beyond one or two. This is the birth control theory and thought they have learnt and practiced during the last 200 years experiment of this ideology.
 
Future historian would write about them, ‘Once upon a time, several centuries ago, there used to be a Continent, whose inhabitants were boasting of its so-called materialistic, secular, godless Western civilization. It was known as Europe, inhabited by White people, who dominated the world, controlled the Continents of Asia, Africa, Latina America and others for about one hundred years during 19th-20th century, but eventually killed themselves through two Great World Wars and through several other misdeeds. Ultimately they eliminated themselves to extinction through adopting birth control and family planning measures to avoid birth of children more than one or two……and so on.”
 
Let us all pray that this bitter experience of Europe serves as an eye-opener for our CJ and  the PM. May Allah guide them to right path of Quran and Sunnah to stop their misguided evil policy to encourage birth control and family planning in Pakistan against the clear injunctions of Allah and His Prophet (PBUH).
