    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    There are a number of websites like Jaish-e-Mohammad's weekly online Urdu magazine Haftroza Al-Qalam(alqalamonline.com) which are consistently trying to brainwash the Muslim youth and function as breeding grounds for suicide bombers. Websites like this repeatedly make terror narratives to brainwash the Muslim youth. Indian Ulama should issue fatwas against terror narratives, refuting them point by point....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam

    Note: This is the story of Imtiaz Shams who says he has left Islam and is now helping others do the same. This young man has been a devout Muslim since his childhood. But now, an ex-Muslim. Having grown up in Saudi Arabia, he is like many other young Muslims, particularly in Turkey, who are leaving Islam, some to become Atheist or Christian, but mostly to become Deist, who believe in God but not in any religion. I think we Muslims should seek to understand this phenomenon as much as that of radical Islamism which is attracting tens of thousands of our children. Merely castigating them as crazy or apostate is not enough. This approach is not helpful at all. We should try to explore the roots of the problem. What is attracting some of our most intelligent, well-educated, youth, who are also well-versed in Islamic theology to violent extremism and some to altogether leaving the religion. Let us listen to Imtiaz Shams’s story and ponder. This might do us some good. – Editor

    Interfaith Dialogue

    The holy Quran encourages interfaith dialogue and calls Muslims to settle issues with the People of the Book through dialogue.

    Islam and Pluralism

    Transition to local languages has not been easy for other religions too. A certain holiness does attach itself to some languages. Vedic Sanskrit, for instance, is sacred for Hindus, Hebrew for Jews. Christianity’s struggle to retain the Bible in Latin and Greek was intense and bloody, with a powerful Church putting up a stiff resistance. Eventually, the Bible did speak to the people in their language. The Ulema in India refuse to accept as Quran an Urdu or English translation of the holy book....

    As a result of this campaign, not only did the non-Muslims visit the mosques but they also had access to Islamic literature available in the mosques.

    Islamic Ideology

    Allah is the sole source of all knowledge of what is right and what is wrong or what is moral and what is immoral. If we wish to master this knowledge perfectly, it is essential that we orient ourselves perfectly to receive this knowledge. The orientation is by gaining a perfect understanding of the nature of Allah or of all His attributes. Misunderstanding of any attribute leads to a wrong understanding of His Book, of right and wrong, and this is the way Satan misleads and deprives us of becoming perfect Muslim....

    Islamic Q and A

    He Almighty is not an ignorant [Jahil]. He is not incapable [‘Aajiz), nor powerless, nor helpless. Ice melts into water and becomes a single unit but Allah Almighty does not incarnate into anything or any shape.

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    A War on Terror has been raging for 17 years now but we are no closer to defeating Islamist terror. Jihadism continues to attract Muslim youth. This is because the world has not paid enough attention to the ideology of Islamism and Jihadism.

    Mainstream Muslims have considered Islam a spiritual path to salvation, one of the many. Islam aims at reforming society for a peaceful, harmonious, pluralist existence. However, due to certain historical factors, the theology and jurisprudence of Islam that evolved in the 8th and 9th centuries (CE), present Islam as a political, totalitarian ideology of supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance and gender discrimination. It is this theology of violence, exclusivism and world-domination that is taught in madrasas and sustains Islamism. But despite the Islamist violence against peaceful Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the community is still not focussed on the need for evolving a counternarrative of Islam.

     It is imperative that Muslim countries that have signed the UN Charter look into the issue urgently and work towards developing a new theology of peace, pluralism and gender justice. While several countries like Morocco and now Saudi Arabia appear to be moving in this direction, the one country that has made a solid contribution is Turkey. In a decade-long exercise 100 Turkish scholars have managed to limit the number of authentic ahadith to just 1600, out of over 10,000, and provide each hadith with context and suitable interpretation. This book of authentic Hadith has been provided to all mosques in Turkey but I hope it is made available to the global Muslim community in their own languages as soon as possible.

    Allama Iqbal, a poet-philosopher of the South Asian sub-continent had called for the reconstruction of religious thought in Islam almost a hundred years ago. Let us at least start working on it now....

    New Age Islam had carried a campaign against the ISIS and had informed the government and warned the Muslim community that the ISIS was an anti-Islamic organization out to tarnish the image of Islam. We had continuously exposed so-called Islamic State's un-Islamic practices and demanded that the IS must be banned immediately as it was influencing the Muslim youth of the country. ....

    Islamic Ideology

    Some people ask: why do you call the militants like ISIS, Taliban and other like-minded groups anti-Islamic, while they base their militancy on what is often considered a popular classical ruling of abrogation which demonstrates that the war-related instructions from God in later Madani verses have replaced and abrogated Makki verses which initially debarred Muslims from fighting?  A plain answer is: the classical ruling of abrogation, as my rigorous study of classical texts reveal, does not accept this consideration. There are many differences on this subject; each needs to be explained in its appropriate context....

    Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Denying freedom of religion to Muslims and ex-Muslims, not to speak of non-Muslims, indeed has a long and gory history. The Quranic dictum (2: 256) la ikraha fid Deen [Let there be no compulsion in religion] did not leave an impact beyond the life of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). Forcible conversions started with the first Caliph Hazrat Abu Bakr (RA) fighting Ridda (apostasy) wars against the tribes who had left Islam after the demise of the Prophet. They were all brought back to the fold of Islam or killed. Similar is the case of Khwarij in the time of the fourth caliph Hazrat Ali (RA) and beyond to neo-Khwarij today, also known as Wahhabi or Salafi.  These groups mostly kill Muslims whom they consider “heretics” including Shias and Ahmadis....
