What if I told you that it is OK to drink wine in Islam as long as you believe that drinking wine is haram?
What if I told you that it is OK to engage in zina in Islam as long as you believe that zina is haram?
What if I defended these claims by saying: Actions are separate from beliefs in Islam. As long as you have the right beliefs, you can commit whatever actions you want, no problem.
You would think that I am crazy. More accurately, you would think that I am an apostate because I have invented a principle that does not exist in Islam and actually contradicts the fact that actions are indeed part of Islam.
But this is exactly what those who say we can separate morality from politics are preaching.

They say that Muslims can support LGBT politically as long as they know that morally it is haram.
They say that Muslims can support unlimited abortion as long as they know that morally it is haram after 40 days.
They say that Muslims can support laws that give men and women equal inheritance as long as they know that morally, inheritance should be given based on the Quranic commands.
The principle these imams use is: Politics are separate from morality in Islam. As long as you have the right moral beliefs, you can support whatever political positions, legal system, or government system you want, no problem.
This is what some Unfit Imams have been preaching with no shame. Where did they get this principle? They made it up! It has nothing to do with Islam and, in fact, it contradicts Islam because politics, legislation, and government are, indeed, a major part of Islam!
So we have to recognize that the people who separate religious morality from politics are nothing other than secularists.

They are secularists who want secularism. It doesn’t matter how many times they say they are against secularism or Islamic reform. It doesn’t matter if they dress and act like traditional imams. They are secularists.
This separation of religious morality from politics is exactly what secularized Christianity and Judaism. They are working hard to do the same with Islam. They want Muslims like you to believe that secularism is fully compatible with Islam.
That way, you will never strive for a united Ummah under a khilafa that implements the Sharia.
