मुस्लिम उलेमा इस्लामी शरई कानून को समझने के लिए चार महत्वपूर्ण स्रोत का इस्तेमाल करते हैं; कुरआन, सुन्नत, इज्माअ और कयासl आखरी तीनों स्रोत के लिए ज़रूरी है कि वे निश्चित तौर पर कुरआन करीम के मुताबिक हो जोकि इस्लामी बुनयादी उलूम का एक बुनियादी मसदर व सरचश्मा हैl जब कुरआन किसी समस्या पर खुद से बराहे रास्त रौशनी नहीं डालता या उसका विवरण प्रदान नहीं करता तभी मुस्लिम उलेमा इस्लामी अह्कामत के वैकल्पिक स्रोत से रुजुअ करते हैंl


آیات کریمہ اور احادیث مبارکہ میں جابجا  یہ تعلیم دی گئی ہے کہ تمام امت  دعوت ہو یا استجابت آپس میں ایک دوسرے کے ساتھ الفت وبھائی چارگی قائم کریں،ایک دوسرے کے حقوق کو پہچان کر ان کو ادا کرنے کی کوشش کریں، اور ہر مصیبت اور ضرورت کے وقت ان کا ساتھ دیں۔  محبت کرنے کا بنیادی مطلب یہ ہے کہ ایک دوسرے کے بارے میں عمومی پسندیدگی،قبولیت اور تعاون کا رویہ رکھا جائے۔اس عمل کی ابتدا والدین سے ہوتی ہے، پھر اس میں بیوی بچے ، بھائی بہن، رشتے دار، پڑوسی، دوست احباب اور دیگر متعلقین یکے بعد دیگرے سبھی کو شامل ہوتے چلے جاتے ہیں۔


طالبان کا کہنا ہے کہ کشمیر کو ہندوستان اسی وقت آزاد کرے گا جب اس کے دوسرے شہر غیر محفوظ ہو جائیں گئے، اسی لئے انہوں نے ایک نیا ویڈیو جاری کر کے اپنے نام نہاد جہاد کو ہندوستان کی سرحدوں میں منتقل کرنے کی دھمکی دی ہے۔ویسے ہی یہ بھی ممکن ہے کہ ہتھیاروں کے کارخانے چلانے والے کسی اسرائیلی یا امریکی صنعت کار نے اپنے ایجنٹوں کی معرفت یہ دھمکی جاری کروائی ہوتا کہ ہندوستان اپنے ضروری اخراجات میں کمی کر کے مزید ہتھیار خریدنے پر مجبور ہو اور یہ بھی ممکن ہے کہ یہ دھمکی طالبان نے ہی جاری کی ہو، اگر یہ دھمکی واقعی طالبان نے جاری کی ہے تو پھر مسلمانان ہند کوبہت زیادہ سرگرمی کے ساتھ طالبان کے ارادوں کو ناکام کرنے کے لئے جد و جہد کرنا ہوگی۔

When Donald Trump ran for the U.S. Presidency, his biggest foreign-affairs promise (which he copied from Ted Cruz) was to defeat “radical Islamic terrorism”; but, on December 27th, the Russian Government publicly accused Trump’s military of backing ISIS terrorists to fight against Syria’s Government (which is allied with Russia). Russia’s RT international television network headlined "US lets militants train, mount attacks from its Syrian bases – chief of Russian General Staff", and opened:....


In sum therefore, on the one hand we see reports emanating from Western quarters on atrocities on Rohingyas which are purely of academic interest while on the other a segment of the Rohingyas are being armed to the teeth, indoctrinated and trained by undesirable elements which in all likelihood will abet the growth of radical Islam and eventually terror. This looks plausible as the actors involved are against any kind of peace and tranquillity in the region. Affected areas will not be confined to Myanmar alone....


Rouhani, urging the nation to be vigilant, acknowledged that people were unhappy about the state of economy, corruption and a lack of transparency. “People are allowed under the constitution to criticise or even protest but […] in a way that at the end they lead to a better situation in the country for the people,”...

Neighbours in al-Salhi’s home district in the southern city of Basra decorate cars and homes with posters of him in military gear, rifle in hand, standing next to Shiite saints. His face appears on wristwatches for sale in the markets and on cakes in a bakery. One of Iraq’s top sculptors, Ahmed al-Bahraini, has started work on a 6-meter (20-foot) bronze statue of al-Salhi for a main square in Basra....


When Jinnah in Pakistan and Nehru in India lauded their civil services as the “steel frame” for their nations, they recognised their central importance. Unfortunately, the ways of the CSP attracted jealousy and hatred, and each government diminished it. Today, Pakistan, always own-goal champs, have reduced the services to malleable plastic, making the pursuit of good governance nationwide much harder to achieve....


“American” is not a default standard against which Muslims, or any group, can objectively be measured. The country is too complex, and Muslims are far too diverse. Just like any marriage process, a lot of negotiation is necessarily involved. As Grewal put it: “Two families coming together is a lot more complicated than, ‘Hey, old people from another country and another world. Get with the program here.’”...


Imam al-Kadhum said: “The one who does not perform self-assessment every day is not one of us. When he finds that he did good, he is to pray God to help him do more good, and if he finds himself having done wrong, he is to seek God’s forgiveness and never return to it.”...


Wine is a taboo in the Islamic tradition, but it was one of the first things Shah Hussain acquired after his mystical awakening. By taking up a forbidden act, he wanted to challenge the traditionally held concepts of the pure and sacred. Purity lies within the heart and not within earthly objects, he conveyed. Bulleh Shah did the same, by visiting the house of a courtesan to learn how to dance. Music and dance are frowned upon in puritanical Islam, both are professions reserved for the so-called lower castes, the Kanjars and Mirasis....


In later days when someone asked Sarkar Ghaus-e-Azam what brought him to his high spiritual level, he replied, “The truthfulness which I promised to my mother”.  Sarkar Ghaus-e-Azam was the authority, the imam, in religious matters, theology and law, and the leader of the Shafi’i and Hanbali groups of Islamic Jurisprudence. All the Sufi Masters and common people of his time profited from him. His prayers were immediately accepted. Through the authentic chains of narrations we come to know that he performed many miracles. He devoted his entire life to remembrance of Allah, meditating, thinking, taking and giving lessons…..

آجکل لوگ مدارس سے بہت زیادہ کتراتے ہیں۔ بہت کم ہی لوگ اپنے بچوں کو مدارس کی تعلیم سے اراستہ کراتے ہیں۔معاشرے کے غریب لوگ جو انگریزی اسکول کے اخراجات کو برداست نہی کرستے وہی لوگ اپنے بچوں کو مدرسے بھیجتے ہیں۔ لو گ کہتے ہیں کہ مدارس میں جدید تعلیم نہی دی جاتی ہے۔وہاں پر اچھے اورماہر استاذ نہی ہوتے ہیں جو بہتر طریقے سے بچوں کو تعلیم دیں سکیں۔کچھ لوگوں کا گمان ہیکہ مدارس کے لو گ دقیانوس ہوتے ہیںاور تنگ نظری کے شکار ہوتے ہیں۔


اب سوال یہ پیدا ہوتا ہے کہ اس کا متبادل کیا ہوسکتا تھا۔ مسلم تنظیموں اور آل انڈیا مسلم پرسنل لا بورڈ کو تقریباً دو سا ل اس غور و فکر کے لئے مہیا تھے کہ وہ کوئی تجویز لے کر حکومت کے پاس جائیں اور طلاق ثلاثہ کے تدارک کے اقدامات یا قانون بنانے کا ایسا مشورہ دیں جو شریعت کی حدود میں ہو۔ لیکن ایسا نہیں کیا گیا۔ اور تو اور مجوزہ بل کا اعلان ہوجانے کے بعد بھی اس مسئلے پر ’’غور و خوض‘‘ ہی کیا جاتارہا۔ یہاں یہ نہیں بھولنا چاہئے کے سپریم کورٹ میں داخل کئے گئے اپنے جوابی حلف نامے میں پرسنل لا بورڈ نے خود کہا تھا کہ معاملہ کورٹ کے دائرہ اختیار سے باہر ہے اور صرف پارلیمنٹ کو اس قانون سازی کا حق حاصل ہے۔ دوسرے الفاظ میں بورڈ نے طلاق ثلاثہ پر قانون بنانے کا عندیہ دے دیا تھا۔

“Unfortunately, Israel has taken advantage of the unacceptable decision regarding Jerusalem, which is in violation of international law, and has used it to further extend its action by declaring war on the Palestinian people, Palestinian lands and Palestinian holy places,” Fatah said....


Two weeks ago a memo was leaked from inside the Trump administration showing how Secretary of State and DC neophyte Rex Tillerson was coached on how the US empire uses human rights as a pretence on which to attack and undermine noncompliant governments. Politico reports: The May 17 memo reads like a crash course for a businessman-turned-diplomat, and its conclusion offers a starkly realist vision: that the U.S. should use human rights as a club against its adversaries, like Iran, China and North Korea, while giving a pass to repressive allies like the Philippines, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.....

Iranian Spring — Finally!
Dr. Khaled M. Batarfi

The slogans raised in the demonstrations are telling: “Neither for Gaza, nor for Lebanon, my life is only for Iran,” “Forget Syria, remember us!,” “May your soul rest in peace, Reza Shah,” “freedom or death,” “Release political prisoners,” “Leaders live in paradise, people live in Hell,” “Death to Hezbollah.”....


“Death to the dictator” has rung out across the cities of Iran, but Iranians have been conditioned for nearly 40 years to reflexively shout “death to” something when they are enraged. It can mean anything from “please overhaul this whole system” to “please get rid of this particular leader who embodies all my grief at my troubled life”. This is what happens when a people with a strong tradition of sophisticated engagement with politics face severe consequences for expressing dissent....


Ghalib’s personal life was also a series of traumatic events. His father died when he was five years old and his uncle who took charge of the family passed away when he was nine. None of Ghalib’s own children survived beyond infancy. Throughout his life he faced financial difficulties. The early life facts are obscure and we really do not know who inspired him to start writing poetry at the age of 11. Maybe it was just a refuge from personal pain.....


Rise in extremism cannot be quantified. The greatest impediment in investing in counter-extremism programming is the inability to measure and evaluate progress. How many fewer young men and women have engaged in acts of violence? How many vulnerable young people toying with the idea of violence have not been recruited either online or in-person...
