خلیفہ کاقتل اور وہ بھی خلیفہ عثمان رضی اللہ عنہ کا قتل معمولی واقعہ نہ تھا ، اسی لئے تعجب کیا جاتا ہے کہ ایسا بڑا واقعہ اتنی آسانی سے خود دارالخلافہ میں کیسے پیش آگیا اور وہ بھی باہر کے غوغائیوں کے ہاتھوں سےلیکن تاریخی واقعات پر غور کرنے سے یہ تعجب دور ہوتا ہے ۔ بات یہ ہےکہ مدینہ کی عام آبادی حضرت عثمان رضی اللہ عنہ سے روٹھ چکی تھی۔ اکابر صحابہ کے بڑی سردار طلحہ رضی اللہ عنہ اور زبیر رضی اللہ عنہ بھی حضرت عثمان رضی اللہ عنہ کے سخت مخالف تھے ۔ ستم پر ستم یہ کہ خود بنوامیہ جیسا کہ پہلے بتایا جا چکا ہے، انتشار اور خانہ جنگی چاہتے تھے ۔

And yet, it is sadly possible that those not paying attention to circumstances inside the Islamic Republic might be lulled by the Orlando statement into more wishful thinking that domestic reform is still just around the corner. ...

 

Every Ramadan, Hussein’s grandmother cooks him fatayer, a savoury pastry stuffed with cheese or meat and baked in an oven. This year, she replaced the filling with grass and cooked the dish on a fire of burning plastic. “I promise you, it tasted better than it sounds...

 

If we‘re serious about ending terror attacks, there are a host of non-military approaches that hold far more promise than bomb-drone-kill. Diplomacy, humanitarian support, arms embargos, economic assistance, more diplomacy — we need to use them all instead of military action, not alongside it. Step one means acknowledging that the current strategy is failing....

Many a times, we hear people say “Oh well, It was never in my destiny for this to happen” or “What’s written for you will happen”. But is it really like that? I mean, we Muslims believe that God has created us with free will to make our own decisions, that’s why there is a Day of Judgement. Because if we didn’t have free will and everything was written for us already, then there would be no point of having a Judgement Day as we couldn’t be rewarded nor punished because nothing was in our hands. But it isn’t like that...

Just like Zubaida Apa has a solution for every household problem, our Ulema can also provide you with a fatwa (religious decree) for all your religious, or even not-so-religious problems....

Choose One: Sabri or Qadri?
Syed Kamran Hashmi

Recall: just a few months ago, a crowd smaller than that at Sabri’s funeral yet very large poured in to pray for Mumtaz Qadri, a fanatic and the murderer of Salmaan Taseer. Qadri was declared a murderer by Pakistani courts, ...  Arguably so, Qadri’s funeral, one of the largest in the country’s history, was attended by more than 100,000 people who wished to pay last “respects” to a killer-turned-hero...

 

It may be worth mentioning that BJP had attributed ‘love Jihad’ which implies Muslim men trapping innocent Hindu girls into love affairs and impregnating them in order to increase Muslim population and convert the Hindu girls so trapped. The love jihad campaign was, like the present ‘exodus of Hindus’ campaign, is to demonize the Muslim community as terrorists and at best anti-social elements from whom Hindus need to be protected and only a BJP Government would do so....

After the June 12 shooting at the gay nightclub in Orlando in which 49 people were killed and more than four dozen injured, a debate has emerged as to whether such attacks should be called Islamic terrorism. … Generally speaking, writers, politicians, activists and journalists of Left-Liberal ideological persuasion do not want to associate such acts of terror with Islam....

One of democracy’s prerequisites is awareness of cultural, religious and ethnic diversity – lest democracy turns into majoritarianism. We must celebrate plurality – this can be done only by promoting minority studies though. ....

 

“Here’s what is news in the summary – nobody died until 05:13 in the morning, when the SWAT team entered. Prior to that no one had been killed.

مسلم سماج میں ایسے لوگوں کی ایک تعداد ہے جو طلاق کےمسئلے کو غلط طریقے سے پیش کرتے ہوئے ائمہ فقہاء اور علماء کی تحقیر کرتےہیں اور یہ باور کرانے کی کوشش کرتے ہیں کہ اسلام اور قرآن و سنت کو ان سے ہم زیادہ سمجھتے ہیں ،جب کہ معاملہ بالکل برعکس ہے، میڈیا میں ان لوگوں کی غیر علمی اور سطحی باتو ں کو زیادہ نمایاں اور اہمیت کےساتھ پیش کیا جاتاہے ، جو قرآن و سنت اور اسلامی شریعت وفقہ کاپختہ اور ضرو ری علم نہیں رکھتے ہیں ۔ اس کا نمونہ سنگھ کے ترجمان پانچ جنیہ اور تہلکہ کا تازہ شمارہ ( 30 جون 2013) ہے ۔ ایسے عناصر کو وہ افراد ، تقویت فراہم کرتے ہیں جومسلکی وابستگی اور تعصب کے سبب اپنے موقف کو انتہائی جارحانہ اور اصل سوالوں کا جواب دیے بغیر پیش کرتے ہیں ۔

 

The process of “expelling the trash” goes on among many nations. It is visible as is intolerance in India these days but without the sanction of law. Many nations have done it in the past through “pogroms” and concentration camps, but in the 21st century it is the Muslim state that is particularly afflicted by it, at times under law but also with impunity....

 

“Ramadan is a month of deeply spiritual time of reflection and recommitment and a special time for compassion, caring, sharing and giving. This is our chance not only be grateful for all the blessings we have been allotted, but an opportunity to give to those who are poor, who are hungry, who are less fortunate, and who have no means to break the fast. Ramadan reminds us that we have common obligation to uphold the dignity of every human being. Ramadan also reminds us that we need to stand firmly by rejecting the voices that seek to divide us or limit our religion freedom or civil rights”....

 

Speculation had immediately fallen on extremist groups believed to be operating in Bangladesh, including outfits affiliated both with al-Qaeda's South Asian wing and the Islamic State.

India has the world's third largest Muslim population at nearly 175 million but only a handful of them have joined the West Asian group. Intelligence officials say the new trend of ISIS aspirants working as "freelance Jihadis" is alarming. "ISIS modules being set up in India is more dangerous than some youth wanting to travel to Syria," said a counter-terror official....

I learnt about the various legal strategies a woman can use if her husband sends her a Talaqnama. This led me to joining Majlis Legal Centre after my graduation in 2006. Since then, I have been litigating on behalf of (predominantly Muslim) women. It is through this process of interacting with Muslim women and securing their rights that my understanding of Muslim law has evolved....

 

It is true that if a rational common personal law is enacted, it will help eradicate many evil, unjust and irrational practices prevalent across the communities, and will also strengthen the unity and integrity of the country. However, it is wrong to assume that the process of integration is thwarted for want of such law. Such simplistic assumptions may be good propaganda material in the hands of the fascist religious forces, but is a harmful method of achieving unity....

 

Whether it is Sufism, the Bhakti tradition of Hindus or Christian mysticism, the experiences of mystics have a common trait, as philosopher WT Stace puts it, ‘A unifying vision in which The One is perceived by the senses and through many objects, so ‘All is One’’...

 

I’d argue that most Sunnis, like myself, are unaware of Wahhabism and of its ties with countries like Saudi Arabia. Most Sunnis are unaware that their hateful attitudes towards Shia are feeding straight into the hands of Saudi Arabia and their Wahhabi, terrorist agenda....
