Why secularism is Evil
Allah the Most High Lord created us to live on earth as imperfect beings. He sent us Prophets to guide us with His Shariah Law, that is, His approved rules and regulations on how to worship Him and how to live together in peace (Islam). The last of the Prophets was Muhammad (Pbuh) sent with the authentic Revelation the Qur’an and the authentic hadiths, the best guidance for all mankind. Those who disobey his Prophethood are the disbelievers or hypocrites who invented secularism, that is , to live according to man made secular laws that has nothing to do with Islam but to follow the selfish interest of the enemies of Islam and die for hellfire.

They used not to forbid one another from Al-Munkar (wrong, evil-doing, sins, polytheism, disbelief) which they committed. Vile indeed was what they used to do.
كَانُواْ لَا يَتَنَاهَوْنَ عَن مُّنكَرٍ فَعَلُوهُ
They used not to forbid one another from the evil they committed.
They did not forbid each other from committing sins and the prohibitions. Allah chastised them for this behavior, so that their behavior would not be imitated.
لَبِيْسَ مَا كَانُواْ يَفْعَلُونَ
Vile indeed was what they used to do.
Hadiths that Order Enjoining Righteousness and Forbidding Evil
There are many Hadiths that order enjoining righteousness and forbidding evil.
Imam Ahmad recorded that Hudhayfah bin Al-Yaman said that the Prophet said,
وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَتَأْمُرُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَلَتَنْهَوُنَّ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ أَوْ لَيُوشِكَنَّ اللهُ أَنْ يَبْعَثَ عَلَيْكُمْ عِقَابًا مِنْ عِنْدِهِ ثُمَّ لَتَدْعُنَّهُ فَلَا يَسْتَجِيبَ لَكُم
By He in Whose Hand is my soul! You will enjoin righteousness and forbid evil, or Allah will send a punishment on you from Him. Then, you will supplicate to Him, but He will not accept your supplication.
At-Tirmidhi also recorded it and said, “This Hadith is Hasan.”
Muslim recorded that Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri said that the Messenger of Allah said,
مَنْ رَأَى مِنْكُمْ مُنْكَرًا فَلْيُغَيِّرْهُ بِيَدِهِ فَإِنْ لَمْ يَسْتَطِعْ فَبِلِسَانِهِ فَإِنْ لَمْ يَسْتَطِعْ فَبِقَلْبِهِ وَذلِكَ أَضْعَفُ الاِْيمَان
He among you who witnesses an evil, let him change it with his hand, if he cannot do that, then by his tongue, if he cannot do even that, then with his heart, and this is the weakest faith.
Abu Dawud said that Al-Urs, (meaning Ibn Amirah), said that the Prophet said,
إِذَا عُمِلَتِ الْخَطِييَةُ فِي الاَْرْضِ كَانَ مَنْ شَهِدَهَا فَكَرِهَهَا وَقَالَ مَرَّةً فَأَنْكَرَهَا كَانَ كَمَنْ غَابَ عَنْهَا وَمَنْ غَابَ عَنْهَا فَرَضِيَهَا كَانَ كَمَنْ شَهِدَهَا
When sin is committed on the earth, then whoever witnesses it and hates – (once he said):forbids it, will be like those who did not witness it. Whoever was absent from it, but agreed with it, will be like those who witness it.
Only Abu Dawud recorded this Hadith.
Abu Dawud recorded that one of the Companions said that the Prophet said,
لَنْ يَهْلِكَ النَّاسُ حَتَّى يَعْذِرُوا أَوْ يُعْذِرُوا مِنْ أَنْفُسِهِم
The people will not perish until they do not leave -or- have any excuse for themselves.
Ibn Majah recorded that Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri said that the Messenger of Allah gave a speech once and said,
أَلَا لَا يَمْنَعَنَّ رَجُلً هَيْبَةُ النَّاسِ أَنْ يَقُولَ الْحَقَّ إِذَا عَلِمَه
Behold! Fear from people should not prevent one from saying the truth if he knows it.
Abu Sa`id then cried and said, “By Allah! We have seen some errors, but we feared (the people).”
Another Hadith that Abu Sa`id narrated states that the Messenger of Allah said,
أَفْضَلُ الْجِهَادِ كَلِمَةُ حَقَ عِنْدَ سُلْطَانٍ جَايِر
The best Jihad is a word of truth proclaimed before an unjust ruler.
Recorded by Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi, and Ibn Majah.
