शब्द तक़वा और इसका शाब्दिक नाम मुत्तकी और इसके माद्दह से मिलते जुलते दुसरे शब्द सैंकड़ों कुरआनी आयात में वारिद हुए हैंl मुस्लिम उलेमा ने इसकी विभिन्न परिभाषाएं पेश की हैं जैसे खुदा की तरफ आकर्षित होना, खुदा का रास्ता दिखाना, खुदा से डरना, खुदा को याद रखना, बुराई से बचना, खुद की बुराई से सुरक्षा करना और परहेज़गारी आदिl संदर्भ व एक विस्तृत दृष्टिकोण में व्यक्तिगत शब्द के मुताबिक़ तक़वा का अर्थ इंसान का अपनी उन सार्वभौमिक और व्यवहारिक जिम्मेदारियों से सचेत रहना है [1] जिनका खुदा ने उसे अमीन बनाया है, या एक शब्द में यह अखलाक़ी दयानतदारी  है जैसा कि शीर्षक मे प्रयोग किया गया हैl

 

سر سید نے مسلمانوں کی اصلاح و ترقی کا بیڑا اس وقت اٹھایا تھا جب مسلمان انگریزوں کے ظلم و ستم کا نشانہ بنے ہوئے تھے۔ 1857 ء کی جنگ میں مسلمان، انگریز استعماریت کے خلاف اٹھ کھڑے ہوئے لیکن انہیں نہایت بے دردی سے کچل دیا گیا۔ ہر طرف نعشوں کے ڈھیر لگے ہوئے تھے اور وہ جنگ ایک ناکام بغاوت ثابت ہوئی۔اس کے نتیجے میں مسلمانوں پر حالات مزید تنگ ہونا شروع ہو گئے۔ سر سید احمد نے اس صورت حال کو مسلمانوں کے لئے نقصان دہ پایا اور مراد آباد پہنچتے ہی ایک کتابچہ لکھنا شروع کیا ، جس کا عنوان تھا’ اسباب بغاوت  ہند‘۔ اس کتابچے میں انہوں نے یہ ثابت کرنا چاہا کہ مسلمان باغی ہرگز نہیں اور وہ حکومت سے وفاداری کا عہد کئے ہوئے ہیں۔

 

قرآن کو مبین (واضح اور بے عیب) سمجھنے کی کوشش میں بھی مسئلہ ہے اور ا س کی وجہ بڑی واضح ہے کہ مختلف آیات کی توضیح و تشریح میں بہت ساری تفسیریں لکھی گئی ہیں لیکن اگر قرآن اتنا ہی واضح اور مبین ہوتا تو ان کی ضرورت پیش نہیں آتی۔ حقیقت یہ ہے کہ نصیر احمد جیسے اسکالر قرآن کے 'حقیقی' معنی کی وضاحت میں طویل مضامین لکھتے رہیں گے اور ساتھ ہی ساتھ یہ بھی دعویٰ کرتے رہیں گے کہ قرآن مبین ہے! اگر متنِ قرآن کا معنی اتنا ہی واضح تھا جیسا کہ دلیل دی جاتی ہے ، تو اس کی تعبیر و تشریح میں اس قدر طویل مضامین کی ضرورت کہاں ہے؟

 
Saudis on the Move
Javed Anand

For a world plagued by extremism and terrorism in the name of Islam, what could be better news than this? But within hours of the declaration of grand intent, Prince Mohammed gives the game away. In an interview to the Guardian, he blames Shia Iran for all the ills of the overwhelmingly Sunni, Arab world. “What happened in the last 30 years is not Saudi Arabia. What happened in the region in the last 30 years is not the Middle East. After the Iranian revolution in 1979, people wanted to copy this model in different countries; one of them is Saudi Arabia… Now is the time to get rid of it.”

Harassing Women
Bina Shah

Sexual harassment can be blatant or subtle, but the result is that it creates a hostile environment for women, in which they become psychologically affected and unable to do their job. In the case of a patient, the doctor’s office or emergency room transforms from a safe space in which she entrusts her life to the doctor’s care into yet another minefield where she has to defend herself against unwanted attention — the doctor holds power over the patient, no matter what their classes outside the emergency room…

And the Taj Stands Tall
Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

It is true that the Taj was worked upon by Indian labourers, that it is they who built the magnificent structure. It is also possible to look at the monument as an exercise in wasteful expenditure, like Aurangzeb did. But to simply criticise it because Muslims built it is nothing but silly. The Taj is a symbol of love since centuries. The Mughal discourse and subsequent history writing have made this object of love into the common-sense of Indian people. Hindus and Muslims both look up to it as the monument dedicated to love. It is not surprising therefore that there was backlash from within the Hindus which forced Yogi to pick up a broom and run to the service of Taj. That is called the triumph of hegemony and the Hindu Right will be advised to think hard before they renege on the pledge that UP Chief Minister gave while speaking on the Taj. 

कुरआन जिसका इस्लाम के प्रारम्भिक दौर में समाजी, व्यावसायिक और सामजिक मूल्यों पर प्रभुत्व था इसने उस दौर में आमदनी के असमानता को बड़े स्तर पर कम किया होगा, लेकिन इस ज़माने और कुरआनी दृष्टिकोण से लोगों की दूरी ने इस्लामी समाज को कई शताब्दी पीछे कर दिया हैl इसका प्रदर्शन बढती हुई गरीबी, आमदनी में बढ़ता हुआ अंतर, सामजिक कफालतों की कमी, भिकारियों और बच्चा मजदूरी की बढ़ती हुई संख्या, और तीसरी दुनिया के अधिकतर मुस्लिम देशों में सस्ते औद्योगिक और घरेलु मजदूरों की उपलब्धता में बढ़ोतरी से होता हैl

The chaos in the Middle East has helped sideline the Palestinian question internationally. If Israeli politicians cannot find a two-state solution, the status quo will cement a one-state reality or perpetual occupation. In some ways the two-state slogan is a convenient evasion, leaving unanswered questions over the size and scope of a future Palestinian nation…

While speaking about Islam, we are aware that it is capable of rational interpretation. In spite of several interpretations of religious texts at present, we believe there is room for re-interpretation in the light of new knowledge in disciplines of sociology, politics and history through which we could review traditional understanding of sacred texts, in order to promote the spirit of tolerance and respect for pluralism and human rights.

 

The terrorist attack in New York city on Halloween day – in which a speeding pickup truck ploughed into pedestrians and killed 8 persons – is a reminder of how the threat of Islamic State (IS) is morphing. The assailant, an Uzbek apparently inspired by the IS command to use vehicles to strike at ‘infidels’ in Western cities, has conveyed a larger message through his diabolical act that the nature of the terrorist problem is shifting and so must the policy response to it.

Currently, the Taliban seem capable of upholding a slow-burning war, with the help of outside benefactors. After recent US pressure on Pakistan to crack down on militant sanctuaries, some Taliban fighters consider opting for another regional neighbour, Omari said: “Many Taliban want to leave Pakistan for Iran. They don’t trust Pakistan anymore.”

 

Grand Mufti and the highest Islamic authority in Syria— Shaikh Ahmad Badruddin Hassoun—maintains that he is both “Sunni and Shiite” at the same time. "I am Sunni in practice, Shiite in allegiance. My roots are Salafi [righteous], and my purity is Sufi [saintly]", he said, as reported in an Arabic media outlet. But Wahhabism is not a mainstream Islamic sect like Sunni or Shia. Rather, it is an extremist ideology based on an exclusivist takfirist theology propounded by the medieval theologians……..

لیکن یہ حقیقت زیادہ توجہ طلب ہے کہ اکثر اسلامی علماء مسلم معاشرے کے اس سخت نظریاتی بحران پر غور نہیں کرتے۔ اس نظریاتی کشمکش کو ختم کرنے کے لئے مؤثر طریقوں پر غور و فکر کئے بغیر مسلم معاشرے کی سماجی و ثقافتی ترقی اور سالمیت صرف ایک خیال خام ہی رہے گی۔ یہ صورت حال اس امر کا مطالبہ کرتی ہے کہ علمائے اسلام ثابت شدہ سائنسی ترقیات کے ساتھ مکمل ہم آہنگی میں ترقی پسند اسلامی روایات کو شامل کرتے ہوئے مذہبی نظریات کو وسعت دینے میں پوری سنجیدگی کے ساتھ مصروف عمل ہو جائیں۔ افسوس کی بات ہے کہ دیگر مذاہب کے رہنماؤں نے تازہ سائنسی نظریات کے لئے اپنے دروازے کھول دئے ہیں جبکہ مسلم علماء کے سماجی و مذہبی افکار میں اب بھی منطقی نقطہ نظر کا فقدان ہے۔
