اس فہرست میں متحدہ عرب امارات، قطر، مراکش اور بحرین جیسے ممالک بھی شامل ہیں جنہوں نے حال ہی میں مندرجہ بالا مسلم ممالک کی طرف سے متعارف شدہ تین طلاق کے معاملے میں قابل ذکر اصلاحات کو اپنا لیا ہے۔ واضح طور پر مسلم اکثریتی ممالک کے قوانین میں بیان کردہ یہ طریقہ کار طلاق کے بارے میں قرآن کریم کے طریقہ کار کے مطابق ہے جس کی تشریح نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم نے بھی پیش کی ہے۔ جہاں تک ایران اور اس کے سخت شرعی قوانین کا تعلق ہے، چونکہ یہ مسلم دنیا میں شیعہ اکثریتی ملک ہے اسی لئے یہاں تین طلاق کا کسی بھی طرح کوئی اعتبار نہیں ہے۔

The term has often been used to describe a specific kind of radicalization — that of young Muslim men who are inspired to take violent action by the online messages of Islamist groups like the Islamic State. But as it turns out, it isn’t just violent jihadists who benefit from the internet’s power to radicalize young people from afar. White supremacists are just as adept at it....

 

 Recent survey has found that nearly half of Israeli Jews believe in ethnic cleansing. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin reportedly called the findings a ‘wake-up call for Israeli society’. But what is it that these people should wake up to? The Jewish state was founded on ethnic cleansing of Palestinian Arabs and defends its “existence” by continuing to ethnic cleanse Palestinians. That’s what they should wake up to — the end of Israel as a Jewish state....

Strangely, the ‘US-led Global Coalition to Counter ISIS’ seems to have access to the firepower needed to turn cities into rubble, but not the wisdom to understand that unchecked violence inspires nothing but violence; and that state terror, foreign interventions and collective humiliation of entire nations are all the necessary ingredients to restart the bloodbath all over again....

 

Mandaeans have settled in over 20 countries around the world, with an estimated global population of 150,000 prior to activating laws and addressing the Mandaean community’s material needs in Iraq, it is necessary to promote a culture of respect and tolerance for different beliefs and to combat religious discrimination....

 

Modesty, not inspired by fear or inferiority complex, is a preeminent component in the Muslim's character. That is so because the Shariah loathes arrogance, condemns the arrogant, and warns them of awful consequences on the Day of Recompense as shown in the Hadith: "Paradise is out of reach of anyone with a grain of arrogance in his heart" (Muslim). Pilgrims in Haj, especially on the Day of Arafah, the central event of the pilgrimage, appear so like one another that all seem brothers....

 

Ashraf Ali Thanvi re-established the connection between Shariah and Tariqah and made Tatbeeq (reconciliation) between various subtle issues of mysticism and the sacred text. He considers Abdiyat as the final stage of mystical path. A novice, according to him, should struggle to attain this final stage. The cornerstone of his mystical ideology is the formation of God-conscious personalities. He used to say, “If you want to be saint, Qutb, Ghaus, go somewhere else; if you want to be a human being come here”. He believed that the one who causes pain to any human heart could not attain spiritual experience....

 
Why Are All Those Racists So Terrified?
Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

In fact, of course, western elites are now (unconsciously) projecting their fear and self-hatred onto Muslims as well and this manifest behaviourally in many ways, including as war on countries in the Middle East. And when the blowback from these wars manifests as ‘terrorist’ attacks on western countries (assuming they aren’t ‘false flag’ events, which is often the case), such as the recent attack in Barcelona, it is simply used by elites, employing their corporate media particularly, to justify more intrusive social control under the guise of ‘enhanced security’....

 

Is our fate in the otherworld linked to following particular juristic school in a given case? Is animal sacrifice (Qurbani) mandatory for every individual who can afford it (Sahibi Istita'at)? Is the popular understanding of Qurbani (especially Hanafi one) based on certain reading of prophetic traditions uncontested in Islamic tradition?  No is the answer to all these questions....

Eid-ul-Adha isn’t just a time to reflect on sacrifices, but it is a time to reflect on the universality of the world’s religions. Sacrificing ourselves for others is what we all can learn from Abraham. Believers and nonbelievers alike can appreciate the human capacity to sacrifice one’s most prized possession for one’s beloved.....

Clearly, this solemn occasion cannot be confined to only animal sacrifice. We must engage in all virtuous and harmonious acts based on kindness and sharing to achieve the noble objectives of Eid-ul-Adha. It is indeed ordained on Muslims to sacrifice Halal or permissible animals in remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim’s devotional sacrifice to God and distribute them to the poor and the less fortunate. Some affluent Muslims go as far as donating money and several kilos of meat to feed the poor families in their country as well as abroad. However, the ritualistic animal sacrifice is not the core essence of this festival. Muslims may go for many other ways to emulate Ibrahim’s devotion to God during Eid-ul-Azha.....

The Mind of an Extremist
Dr S Zulfiqar Gilani

Like all of us, extremists are also social beings and the sustenance of their extremist psyche is linked with the social group/s to which they belong. As groups tend to arrive at more extreme positions than any individual members would on their own, the individual extremist’s position becomes stronger and more extreme due to membership of an extremist group or groups. Groups also tend to become less similar to other groups, which leads to dehumanising members of other groups leading to an us-and-them mentality...

 

Over the past three months, significant legal reforms on women’s rights have advanced in a handful of countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Last week, Lebanon’s Parliament finally repealed its rape law, which allowed assailants to escape punishment if they wed their victims. Two weeks earlier, Jordan, too, closed its “marry your rapist” loophole, and has also amended an article in its penal code that granted lesser penalties for “fits of fury,” a.k.a. honour killings —.....

 

It’s impossible to determine in advance who will respond to Isis’s propaganda but there does seem to be a bias towards young, vulnerable Muslims. This was recognised by former PM David Cameron in 2015, when at a speech in Birmingham he said that young Muslims are drawn to fundamentalist Islam in the same way that young Germans were attracted to fascism last century....

 

What’s it like to hear casual bigotry (references to ‘mossies’, ‘terrorists’) in the office, at the parties, and to overhear such things in public places? Did you once feel like punching people in the mouth (I would have) and have you stopped feeling it now? How? When our great leader separates Muslims from other Indians because of their faith (as he did so brutally the gentle Hamid Ansari), do you feel less Indian? Actually, wrong question. What I am searching for is more likely this: do you feel pushed away from all of us, and your country, or just the man who said those words? I hope it’s the latter.....

It gets far worse when religion is infused into politics. This produces a highly toxic, explosive mix as large masses of people blindly and unquestioningly follow holy men. Instead of dividing people still further, whether inside or outside national boundaries, South Asian states should aspire towards becoming a part of cosmopolitan world society removed from the prejudices of religion, caste and race....
