إن القرآن يأمر المؤمنين الذين يتركون المال بالوصية (2:180) أمام اثنين ذوي عدل منهم. وإذا كانوا يضربون في الأرض ويخافون مصيبة الموت، فكان عليهم أن يأخذوا الشاهدين من غيرهم (2:180، 5:106). وإن كنتم في ريب حول الشاهدين فعليكم أن تجعلهما يقسمان بالله تعالى من بعد الصلوة أنهما لن يشتريا به ثمنا ولو كان ذا قربى ولن يكتما شهادة الله تعالى (5:106).كما جاء في القرآن الكريم أنه إذا عثر على أن الشاهدين ارتكبا إثما كان الآخران يقومان مقامهما من من بين الأقارب أو المستحقين بعد القسم بالله تعالى (5:107 ، 5:108).

 

The stereotyping of religious people, beliefs and communities is not always intentional or even overt. Journalists sometimes rely on widely-used terminology without considering the broader implications. For example, referring to “Islamic terrorism” can make terrorism seem Islamic, just as referring to terrorists as “extremist Muslims” can make terrorists seem extremely Muslim. …..

ISIS and other Islamist groups -- such as the Taliban and al Qaeda -- collectively rain violence and misery upon the world but most directly upon imperiled Muslims who are subject to their rule. Muslims who are not Islamists, but followers of Islam.

Rekha Kalindi, an 11 year old girl, raised her voice against forced marriage. She was tortured and even starved by her mother but she didn’t give up. Here’s an excerpt from the book, The Strength to Say No: One Girl’s Fight against Forced Marriage, that chronicles her brave actions and how she fought against everyone to continue her studies.

 

Nazrul Islam, all the same, faced condemnation and stiff resistance from all quarters, Brits, Hindus and Muslims alike. Some wiseacres happened also to be admirers of Fascism, if not outright Fascists. One of these tooth and nail colonial fighters survived long enough to reminisce, to carry it kit and caboodle, till the 1980s…

 

The fact is that one does not need religious faith to justify violence. While it is true that violence is committed in the name of Islam, Christianity, Judaism or Buddhism, religion is not the sole driver of violence in the modern world. If one of the promises of the Enlightenment was more peace and less violence through rationalism and secularization, it has hardly come true.

As only the Islamophobes, who hate Islam or those Muslims, who want to enforce Shariah Law, of their imagination, by hook or crook, make headlines, the compassionate teachings of the Holy Quran are lost to the ordinary, non-Muslim observer.

The Holy Quran talks about One God and one human family.......

قد حدد القرآن قواعد ومبادئ توجيهية واضحة لتقسيم الميراث في سيناريوهات الأسرة المتفاوتة. وردت هذه القواعد في لهجة فقهية تستمد من آيات القرآن الكريم (4:7 إلى 4:12 ، 4:33 ، و 4:176) وهي قد تكون مشكلة معانيها للقارئ العادي وتخلط المشككين. لذلك، للبساطة، وضعنا مختلف عناصر أحكامها موضعيا، مع إشارات الآيات، قبل تفسير الآيات. قد يقول بعض العلماء إن هذا الموضوع يتعلق الانضباط الفقهية وينبغي أن يترك للفقهاء للتعامل معه. ومع ذلك، فإن القرآن لا يحتوي على أية إشارة على الإطلاق لقطاع مبادئه عبر المجالات المختلفة، وبالتالي فإننا نقدمه كجزء لهذا العرض الشامل للإملاءات الواضحة للقرآن.

There are two theories. First, the lack of economic opportunity in a well-educated, predominantly youthful country, four years after the Jasmine Revolution that toppled the dictatorship of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. Secondly, southern Tunisia has been relegated to the sidelines of the more fashionable story — a mindset to match the Mediterranean influences on food and light on religion…

 

For many centuries now, Islamic punishments have remained one of the hottest subjects of debate both inside and outside the Muslim world. “Islamic punishments are barbaric”, “Death to the death punishment”, “Civilized societies do not flog, stone to death or amputate hands” are a few of the typical slogans and comments that echo and reverberate among the intellectual elite of this Ummah. Without refuting the fact that Islamic punishments are indeed very severe, two things may perhaps help the modern mind in understanding the nature and logic of this severity.....

 
What It Means To Be a Muslim in India
Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

This isn’t so much a battle of what it means to be a Muslim in India. It’s a greater battle between broader India, of how tolerant and open-minded they will be about minorities, about Indian values of democracy and secularism., about recognizing how true they want to be to the Indian values of openness and freedom for all. ...

At present the impact of the IS group is minuscule in India, and according to official figures only 13 Indians have joined IS, and of them six are already killed. According to another report, 25 teenagers from India wanted to go to Syria to join IS but they were restrained from leaving the country.

 

A PROMINENT Melbourne-based Muslim religious leader has supported the idea to train imams domestically, saying that having clerics grounded in “Australian values” would have a huge impact on reducing the number of people attracted to violent extremist ideologies.

 

Both ISIS and AQIS threaten the security of Bangladesh. ISIS has the potential to empower existing Islamist militant movements with the ideology, network capabilities, financing and, most importantly, with its brand image. And despite ISIS’ growing influence, AQIS’s local focus means it will likely continue to have its own niche of support.

The Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act, 1937 was passed to ensure that customary law does not take the place of Muslim Personal Law. However in the absence of a codified law, customary practices which are divergent from the values and principles of the Quran have emerged. New codes have been introduced globally with the hope that they will introduce the rule of law in family matters and end arbitrariness and variances in judicial decisions. In India there is a need to have a comprehensive codified family law to ensure justice within the family.

ایک معاشرہ اور سوسائٹی میں رہتے ہوئے آپس میں اختلاف کا پیدا ہونا یقینی ہوتا ہے، کیونکہ انسانوں کی طبیعتیں مختلف ہیں، ان کا سو چنے کا انداز الگ الگ ہے ، ایک دوسرے کو برتنے اور سمجھنے کے زاویے علیحدہ ہیں،اس لیے سماجی زندگی میں بھی رایوں کا اختلاف سامنے آتا رہتا ہے اور مذہبی و عملی زندگی میں بھی ایسے واقعات رونما ہوتے رہتے ہیں ۔ ایسے موقع پر اسلام کی ہدایت یہ ہے کہ فطری تقاضے کے مطابق اختلاف تو ہوگا، مگر اس اختلاف سےنمٹنے کا راستہ اچھا ، معتدل اور متوازن ہونا چاہئے، کسی کی دل آزاری نہ ہو، سامنے والے کو برا بھلا نہ کہیں، گالی گلوچ نہ کریں۔

 

إن القبائل باختلافها في الجزيرة العربية ما قبل الإسلام كانت مجتمعات مستقلة يرأسها رئيس وتحكمها تقاليدها. وفي غياب أي دولة مركزية أو محكمة الاستئناف كان يتم تسوية المظالم والمنافسات في ما بين القبائل من قبل الأعراف القبلية التي سمحت بالقصاص. وبالتالي فإن الثأر كان عاديا لكل قبيلة حتى إذا قتلت قبيلة أخرى أي عضو من الأعضاء دون قصد ، وذالك من خلال قتل عضو للقبيلة الأخرى. وفي الوقت نفسه فإن ندرة الموارد والحقائق القاسية لحياة الصحراء كانت تؤدي إلى إشعال العنف حتى في الأمور التافهة مثل رعى الجمل لما في حقل جار أو أكله للماء في نهر شخص آخر، فإن مثل ذالك كان يفضي إلى القتل عمدا وإقامة سلسلة من أعمال القتال الانتقامي. ونتيجة لذالك، معظم القبائل كانت تنشغل في ثأر الدم الذي غالبا ما استمر على مدى أجيال. عندما نزل القرآن الكريم أصلح ذالك لجميع الأوقات.

 

قرآن کی آیت 2:236 میں شادی کی مہر کے لیے آیت 4:4 میں لفظ صدقات کے بجائے فریضۃ کا استعمال کیا گیا ہے (باب 33.4)۔ اول الذکر سے مہر کی فرضیت کی طرف اشارہ ملتا ہے جبکہ مؤخر الذکر سے مہر کے تحفہ یا صدقہ ہونے کی طرف اشارہ ملتا ہے۔ اس طرح، قرآن مہر نکاح کی قانونی حیثیت کے بارے میں کوئی ابہام نہیں چھوڑتا کیوں کہ یہ ایک مرد کی جانب سے اس کی بیوی کے لیے ایک مذہبی فریضہہ ہے، اور اس کی ادائیگی خیر سگالی یا صدقہ کی صورت میں کی جاتی ہے۔
