"As a Muslim I believe that racism and racialism, and nationalism, are Taghut; idols which are obeyed and believed in over and above Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. The people who follow such things, who believe in such things, are in Ignorance. They in their ignorance use these things to judge people; to judge themselves; to construct laws, and systems to govern people, as they fight for these things, and thus do they contradict Islam.” (Islam-OnLine Live Dialogue Transcript)

All Praise and All Thanks are for Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala to whom we shall all return to be judged on The Last Day.
In respect of National-Socialism - "nazi-ism" - I consider it now from the perspective of a Muslim, as a manifestation of kufr, of Jahiliyyah, of that ignorance of Tawheed which is evident in all the ignorant ways of the kuffar. These ignorant ways all distance us from our true relationship to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala - which is to live as a 'Abd of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala.
National-Socialism depends upon - has its basis in - several errors of the kuffar. The first of these is the Taghut of nationalism; the second of these is the Taghut of racialism; the third of these is the Taghut of "Destiny".
All these Tawagheet (and indeed all Tawagheet) are assumptions - abstract concepts which the kuffar have manufactured and which they impose, or project, upon "Reality" and upon human beings and which "Reality" and which human beings they then, in their arrogance and ignorance, believe they have "understood" (and thus have "knowledge of"). In addition, the kuffar often give their loyalty and allegiance to, and believe in, such Tawagheet, which they come to regard as "ideals" or goals (to "perfection") to be striven for, just as they use such Tawagheet to define and "understand" not only others, but themselves, assuming that the meaning of their mortal lives lies in such things. They also derive their laws and their ethics from such Tawagheet.
All these kaffir assumptions - all these Tawagheet - obscure our true nature, as human beings, as they all lead us away from the Signs (Ayat) of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. Our true nature is Muslim: to understand and know ourselves in relation to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala:
"I created the Jinn and human beings so they might ya-budun Me." (51:56)
Furthermore, the assumptions of the kuffar - all Tawagheet - are examples of human hubris: of that arrogance and pride which was and is manifest in As-Shaitan. Thus do such assumptions of the kuffar - all Tawagheet - profane what is sacred because in place of the knowing of the numinous and the humility (Tawadu) that derives from submitting to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, from relying only on Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, from accepting that only Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala is the provider of ilm al-yaqin, there is instead the belief that they can obtain knowledge and understanding through their Tawagheet, and that their wealth, their technology, their military weapons, or whatever, will enable them to triumph. That is, they pridefully and defiantly rely on themselves and their manufactured assumptions, and what they construct or obtain or appropriate. Thus, they deify themselves and their assumptions, their Tawagheet.
Hence a National-Socialist will define and thus "understand" themselves in terms of the Tawagheet of "race" and "nation" - in terms of their supposed or alleged or assumed "ethnic identity", and in terms of the land where they were born, or where their ancestors were born. They will have a pride in their race and nation, and will give their allegiance to such Tawagheet and may well fight for or on behalf of them, believing that such Tawagheet must be maintained, whatever the cost (in terms of human suffering). Many of them - although not all of them - will also believe that their own race, and/or their own nation, are superior to - and more valuable than - others. Thus, they will judge others according to the criteria of race and nation.
In contrast, we Muslims define ourselves in relation to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, and accept that we have been given the perfect and the complete guidance we need, in the Ayat of the glorious Quran and in the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet, Muhammad (salla Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam). For us, the Tawagheet of race and nation and nationalism, are irrelevant: all Muslims are our brothers and sisters, and the criteria we use is the perfect criteria given to us by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, which means us accepting that the only really important division is that between Muslims and the kuffar, and that our own criteria of judgement is that of how well we obey Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala.
In essence, the fundamental difference between our real Truth, and the ignorance of the kuffar, is that we know and accept that only Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala is Al-Jalil, Al-Qadir, Al-Muqtadir, Al-Awwal, Al-Akhir, and that only Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala can provide us with the guidance, the gifts, we need in order to know, understand, and to live our lives as we should. Thus, we accept that the only true justice is the justice of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, and that the only true manifestation of justice, in the dunya, is that obtained by following the guidance of Allah, Al-Hakam, As-Salam, in the Shariah. In complete contrast, the kuffar accept and believe not only that they can, by their own efforts and/or by their manufactured assumptions, arrive at or attain knowledge and understanding, but also that it is their own manufactured assumptions and "ideals" which manifest or which can manifest "perfection", "truth", and such things as "justice".
National-Socialism. therefore, is just another example of the prideful ignorance of the kuffar.
May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala protect us from all forms of Al-asabiyyah Al-Jahiliyyah, forgive us for our mistakes, and guide us to and keep us on the Right Path.
