زیادہ ہنسی انسان کی شخصیت کو بے وقعت کر دیتی ہے، خلقِ خدا کو ذلیل کرنے والا خود ذلت و رسوائی کی لعنت کا شکار ہو جاتا ہے ، جو انسان جس چیزکی کثرت کرتا وہ اس کی فطرت میں شامل ہو جاتی ہے، جس کی فطرت میں گناہ اور معصیت شامل ہو جائے اس کے اندر سے حیاء نکل جاتی اور جس کی اندر سے حیاء ختم ہو جائے اس کا تقویٰ کم ہوجاتا ہے اور جس کا تقویٰ کم ہوجاتا ہے اس کا دل مر جاتا ہے۔حضرت سلمان فارسی رضی اللہ عنہ فرماتے ہیں کہ : جب اللہ تعالیٰ برائی اورہلاکت کو کسی کا مقدر بنا دیتا ہے تو اسے حیاء سے محروم کر دتیا ہےجس کا نتیجہ یہ ہوتا ہے کہ لوگ اس سے بغض رکھتے ہیں اور وہ بھی لوگوں سے بغض رکھتا ہے۔(حلیۃ الاولیاء)

 
Aleppo: The West’s Grim Failure
The Guardian Editorial

The fate of rebel-held Aleppo spells the abject failure of the west’s contradictory and piecemeal policies. It is a humiliation for the UN. Its fall will be an unequivocal victory for Russian strategy. Aleppo will join an infamous list of cities whose names are synonymous with mass crimes committed while the world looked impotently on: Srebrenica, Grozny, even Guernica. Once again, it’s never again. ...

 

Corrie froze with horror. Just a few minutes ago, she had preached on forgiveness, and now she was unable to forgive! She prayed for the strength and the will to forgive. No sooner had she prayed than she felt an overwhelming power rush through her system. She grasped the extended hand of the former Nazi guard. “Brother,” she cried, “I forgive you, with all my heart…!Learn to forgive, it’s like a cloud lifting from you, as you live joyously..!.

One member of an Islamist party recently complained, “Throughout the New Order and after, we have always been a minority of second-class citizens, haven’t we?” With such rhetoric, they called on the masses to be ready for Shuhada (martyrdom) in future rallies...

Decades of research on minority communities has documented how stress associated with stigma, intimidation and discrimination is detrimental to physical and mental health. These health effects are especially concerning for Muslims given Trump won the elections on a platform of Islamophobia....

 

The new world order will push more Muslims towards Salafism or Wahhabism, which will, in turn, whip up more hatred and right wing nationalism. An all-out culture war looms. This, as Obama told his daughters, is no time to take up a foetal position and hide. Good liberals and progressive Muslims must wake up and together confront the emerging forces of darkness....

Borrowing words from G. M. Syed, Sindh is a historical country; nation; and the freedom of Sindh is possible, and can be claimed unavoidable. I add with due permission from G. M. Syed that Sindh is also a Sovereign State. Sindh State has evolved through thousands years of Kingdoms/Emirate and finally modernized under colonial Britain like united India, after having more than a dozen treaties and instruments signed between Sovereign Kingdom of Britain and Emirate of Sindh....

 

Every Muslim has the right to perform Hajj and Umrah. What right does anyone have to stop him from this or charge a tax from him for doing so? This is definitely an act of high handedness and the misuse of the authority on Masjid al-Haram. It can have dangerous consequences in this world and in the hereafter....

 

One of his companions said, ‘O Prophet, it was a funeral procession of a Jew!’ meaning that he should not demonstrate such respect for a non-Muslim. The Prophet replied: ‘Alaisat Nafsan’: ‘Was he not a human being?’ This ‘humanitarian’ outlook was typical of the Prophet’s vision of life. He was able to see everyone basically as a human being.....

نبی کریم ﷺ نے فرمایا: جب اللہ تعالیٰ نے حضرت آدم علیٰ نبیّنا علیہ الصلوٰۃ و التسلیم کو پیدا فرمایا تو انہیں فرمایا جاؤ اور فرشتوں کی اس بیٹھی ہوئی جماعت کو سلام کرو اور وہ جو تمہیں جواب دیں اسے غور سے سنو پس وہ تمہارا اور تمہاری اولاد کا سلام ہو گا، حضرت آدم علیٰ نبیّنا علیہ الصلوٰۃ و التسلیم نے فرشتوں سے کہا:السلام علیکم ! فرشتوں نے اس کے جواب میں کہا: السلام علیکم و رحمۃ اللہ، لہٰذآ، انھوں نے "رحمۃ اللہ" کا اضافہ کیا۔ (بخاری و مسلم) پیغمبر اسلام ﷺ نے فرمایا:جب تک تم ایمان نہ لاؤ جنت میں نہیں جاؤ گے، اور اس وقت تک تم ایماندار نہیں بن سکتے جب تک تم آپس میں ایک دوسرے سے محبت نہ کرو، کیامیں تمہیں ایک ایسی بات نہ بتاؤں کہ جب تم اس پر عمل در آمد کرو تم آپس میں محبت کرنے لگو؟ اور وہ یہ ہے کہ تم آپس میں سلام کو پھیلاؤ۔ (مسلم)

The US and the European Union, which have shown unseemly haste in lifting international sanctions on Myanmar following its promise of political reforms, must push the government in Yangon to rein in the troops going on the rampage in Rakhine. Myanmar must open the Rakhine province to international media and allow the UN to probe the widespread abuses and crimes against humanity....     

The 17 men and women who were abducted or disappeared in December 1971 were well-known and highly respected people with unblemished reputations – mainly journalists, editors and academics. They were abducted because of their known support for an independent Bangladesh, with the defeated forces seeking to denude the new country of some of its finest minds and characters before departing....

 
Dileep Padgaonkar—A Thinker Journalist
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, New Age Islam

His colleagues have unanimously observed that he was a strict follower of principle. In this respect he has left behind an example for those who come after him. By profession DileepPadgaonkar was a journalist, but he was a different kind of journalist. We can say that he was a man with a difference, and a writer has very appropriately said that difference is beautiful. ...

 

Beneath the politics, Indonesia is engaged in a quiet but vital ideological struggle - one between the idea of a Muslim or Islamic state, and that of a more pluralistic vision of a multi-religious Indonesia, which in the past was called Pancasila...

 

The overlap between Trumpism and Islamism is no coincidence. In my book Islamic Exceptionalism, which discusses Islam's tensions with liberalism and liberal democracy, I argue that some public role for religion is necessary in religiously conservative societies. Religion, unlike secular nationalism or socialism, can provide a common language and a kind of Asabiyya ....

In my work as the director of an interfaith-youth movement, I have had the privilege of visiting numerous mosques in Seattle and forming close friendships and professional relationships with many Muslims. Through these contacts, I have come to see Islam as a religion that espouses peace, compassion and tolerance. I have been humbled to see the work done by mosques…

They ought to return to dialogue. This is the only way left for them to reach to a final destination and attain a blissful relationship.

As a political system, Islamists insist that Islam is meant to dominate the environment in which it is practised. In a sharply divergent society like Nigeria, any attempt to implement the principles of Islamism portends great danger for the nation. The various military government of Nigeria, starting from the regime of Murtala Muhammad in 1975, did not hide their preferences for the imposition of Islamism upon Nigeria....
