मुस्लिम होने का मतलब शांति के लिए काम करने वाला है जो संघर्षों को कम करता है और मानवता के शांतिपूर्ण सहअस्तित्व के लिए सद्भावना को बढ़ावा देता है। खुदा चाहता है कि हम उसकी रचनाओं, जीवन और तत्वों के साथ शांति और सद्भाव के साथ रहें।

 

إن المسلمين المعتدلين يدعمون عموما الإصلاحات الرئيسية في قوانين الشريعة والإصلاحات التي تتفق مع المبادئ القرآنية الأساسية من العدل والعدالة والمساواة والرحمة والحس السليم وكرامة الإنسان والتي تتفق أيضا مع الأعراف والحقائق المعاصرة. ويرغبون في إلغاء تعدد الزوجات والطلاق الثلاثي وأن تتمتع النساء بالمكانة المتساوية وحقوق التساوي في أمور الدين والطلاق والميراث والحقوق والفرص الكاملة لمتابعة أهدافهن التعليمية والمهنية وحتى يقدرن على المنافسة والعمل في المهن والأعمال والسياسات والفنون والحرف ونحوها مثل نظرائهن من الذكور.

 

عام طور پر مسلمان بہت روادار رہے ہیں۔ آج ہمیں ہمارے درمیان اور پوری دنیا میں اس خوبی پر زور دینا ضروری ہے۔ ہماری برادریوں کے درمیان رواداری کی ضرورت ہے۔ ہمیں شاندار پالیسیوں اور کوششوں کے ذریعے رواداری کو فروغ دینا ضروری ہے۔ ہمارے مراکز کثیر نسلی ہونے چاہئے۔ ہمیں اپنے بچوں کو ایک دوسرے کا احترام سکھانا چاہئے۔ ہمیں دیگر نسلوں اور ثقافتوں کی ترجمانی نہیں کرنی چاہئے۔ ہمیں زیادہ سے زیادہ ایک دوسرے کے ساتھ ملاقات اور تبادلۂ خیالات کرنا چاہئے’’۔ ‘‘غیر مسلموں کے ساتھ ہمیں بات چیت کرنی چاہیے اور ہمیں ان کے ساتھ اچھے تعلقات بنانے چاہئے، لیکن ہم وہ چیزیں قبول نہیں کر سکتے جو ہمارے مذہب کے خلاف ہیں۔ ہمیں ان کو مطلع کرنا چاہیے کہ ہمارے لیے کیا قابل قبول ہے اور کیا نہیں۔ مزید معلومات کے ساتھ مجھے یقین ہے کہ باہمی احترام اور باہمی تعاون کو فروغ ملے گا’’۔

 

عصر حاضر میں مسلمانوں کی خواہش "دعوت" (مذہب تبدیل کروانے یا اسلام کی تبلیغ) کے ذریعہ مغرب پر اسلامی اقدار کو نافذ کرنے کی ہے۔ لہذا ، مغرب میں بسنے والا ہر مسلمان بنیادی طور پر اسلام کا سفیر ہے اور اپنے اخلاق کے ذریعہ کافروں کے لئے ایک رول ماڈل بن کر اسلام کے اخلاقی اقدار کی نمائندگی کرنا اس کا  فریضہ ہے۔ مختصر یہ کہ  وہ ‘‘محبوس بچوں’’ کی طرح ہیں کہ جنہیں اپنے دائیں اور بائیں کی بھی تمیز نہیں ہے اور ان کی آنکھیں کھولنا اور ان کو صحیح راستہ دکھانا یعنی سچے مذہب کی دعوت دینا ان کی ذمہ داری ہے۔

 

This near death experience with bullets flying over me and shattered window glass falling over me reminded me of the way my own country was turning into a laboratory of violence. Worse, that when I saved myself, it was not without a price. A young man, who had been working as my driver for some time, was almost dead. I stood on a busy road asking for help and not a single car stopped.....

It is deeply regrettable that the euphoria that surrounded the end of the Mubarak reign was short lived. Egypt today has reverted to an autocracy and any dissent or challenge to the ruling military administration will seemingly be quickly silenced. Democratic rule must return to Egypt. A process of justice, accountability and reconciliation must find a place in Egypt's next chapter whether it is in Minya, Cairo or ultimately The Hague……

 

I brought messages not just from Malala, but from her two friends who were also shot in that tragic bus massacre two years ago –– Kainat and Shazia –– and who will now be joining our organisation “WORLD AT SCHOOL” in a round-the-world campaign to highlight the struggle being waged by girls in every country.....

 
Here Are Some Shocking Truths
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

According to the law of nature, life is not a smooth journey: it is a journey through shocks. One has no option but to accept this as a reality. Indeed, the course nature takes is determined by shocks and challenges. Anyone who seeks to make himself successful should understand this reality and take shocks as stepping stones in life.....

 

“These are all different women living in different patriarchal structures,” she said. “A woman in Pakistan has different rights than a woman in Morocco. A woman in Morocco has different rights than a woman in Saudi Arabia. A woman in Saudi Arabia has different rights than a woman in Yemen…and we are quite wide spread. We are 1.5 billion people in the world today.” And those different rights often come from cultural traditions overlaid by misinterpretation of the Quran, said Afridi…..

 

Young men who in the west are considered to be grown up, act like teenagers here with the mentality to match. It is hard to believe that any one society could produce so many mentally crippled men. They are so afraid of their parents that the truth becomes a lie in the name of respect. For young people in Pakistan, the future is bleak: no promising jobs and no opportunities....

 
The Mirage of Peace
Ramzy Baroud

As the US-imposed April 29 deadline for a “framework” agreement between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority looms, time is also running out for the American administration itself. The Obama administration must now conjure up an escape route to avoid a political crisis if the talks are to fail, as they surely will…..

 

The relative weakness of the Al-Qaeda leadership in Afghanistan and Pakistan is deceptive. The organisation’s strength now lies at the periphery. Today the Al-Nusra front controls huge tracts of Syrian territory. And there are signs that the jihadis there have learnt an important lesson: if they want the consent of the people, it’s best not to murder too many of them....

 

"The defenders of every kind of regime claim that it is a democracy, and fear that they might have to stop using the word if it were tied down to any meaning. Words of this kind are often used in a consciously dishonest way," said George Orwell in "Politics and the English language", highlighting a pattern of statements that "are almost always made with intent to deceive".....

 

Shia cite a number of Fatwas targeting them as non-Muslims, such as one that declares:  “To call for closeness between Shia and Sunni is similar to closeness between Islam and Christianity.” Christian churches are considered places of idolatry and polytheism because of pictures of Jesus and his mother and the use of the cross, all of which shows that Christians do not worship a single God. This is not a view confined to Saudi Arabia….

 

Let me put it blatantly: If Muslims can freely cherish their religion, perform their religious duties and rituals, establish institutions defined by their religion, teach their religious values to their children or other aspirants, speak their mind about their religion in public debates, and make religious demands in compliance with laws and democracy, then they do not have to try to establish a religious or “Islamic” state....

The Islamic call to worship, known as Azaan and recited by the muezzin at prescribed times, had not been obligated in Makkah, as Makkan Muslims were a very small minority and hence they used to offer their prayers in secret places fearing the pagans of the Quraish. It was, then, impossible to openly announce the timings of the Islamic prayers to Muslims......

 

There is a new kind of entrepreneurship in America, the socially conscious kind. It’s the kind which makes profits by condemning the profit motive.  It’s a less controversial form of capitalism which goes by different designations like caring capitalism, creative capitalism and the newest buzzword:  conscious capitalism.  As a Muslim I am conditioned to equate capitalism with greed. But the aversion to capitalism in the Muslim world is less ideological and more personal.....

Treating religion as a political ideology is the greatest betrayal against religion, as it amounts to reducing Islam to a simple or lowly set of principles and caricaturing it. The role of the centuries-long colonialism in this should be noted. Indeed, the tendency to reduce religion to politics and to resort to violence is more prevalent in countries which were colonized in the past. To our dismay, the violence by these radical groups is sometimes given wider coverage in the media when compared to the vast majority of Muslims, who do not approve of them….

No Party for Muslims
Rasheeda Bhagat

The gloves are off. The BJP, which has of late been making lukewarm, noises about inclusive growth for all and communal harmony, has not fielded a single Muslim candidate from its Karmabhoomi of Uttar Pradesh. Muslims, who make up about 17 per cent of the population in UP, are chafing at this insult....

 

हकीकत ये है कि हमारे उलमा गैर मुस्लिमों के करीब आने के लिए बातचीत पर प्राथमिकता के रूप में विचार नहीं करते हैं। इसके अलावा हमारे कुछ ही उलेमा गैर मुस्लिमों के साथ सामाजिक सम्पर्क रखते हैं। और इनमें से कुछ ही और शायद ही कोई उनके धर्म के बारे में जानने की इच्छा रखता हो ताकि वो सहानुभूतिपूर्वक उनके विचारों को समझ सकें। अफसोस की बात ये है कि श्रेष्ठ होने का एहसास दूसरों को कमतर बताता है, और यही मुसलमानों में गैर मुस्लिमों के करीब आने में उत्साह की कमी का सबसे महत्वपूर्ण कारक है।

 

कुरान ने नबी करीम के लिए सूरह अंबिया में फ़रमाया, हमने आपको पूरी आलम के लिए रहमत बना कर भेजा है ! इसका अर्थ ये है नबी के रहमत के आगोश में तमाम इंसानों से लेकर जिन्नात, चरिंद, परिन्द और हर मख्लूक शामिल हैं !इन सबमें से चरिंद-परिन्द  न सिर्फ उसकी रहमत में  शामिल हैं बल्कि उन्हें ये तक एतमाद है कि मुहम्मद (सल्ल0) खुदा के रसूल हैं ! इन जानवरों और परिंदों को लेकर नबी (सल्ल0) की दया इतनी ज्यादा थी कि एक बिल्ली को तकलीफ देने वाली एक महिला के बारे में आप (सल्ल0) ने फरमाया था कि ‘यह औरत इस बिल्ली के कारण नरक में दाखिल होगी, जिसने इसे बांध दिया और न ही उसे छोड़ा ताकि वह जमीन के कीड़े-मकोड़े खा सके!’

 

ایک صحابہ نے جنہوں نے اسلام سے پہلے اپنی بیٹی کو زندہ در گور کر دیا تھا وہ اپنا ماجرا اس طرح بیان کرتے ہیں: "ہم اسلام کی آمد سے قبل بتوں کی عبادت کرتے اور اپنی بیٹیوں کو قتل کرتے تھے۔ میری ایک بیٹی تھی جب وہ بڑی اور سمجھدار ہو گئی تو وہ جب بھی مجھے دیکھتی خوش ہوتی اور جب میں پکارتا تو فوراً جواب دیتی۔ ایک دن میں نے اسے بلایا اور میرے پیچھے آنے کو کہا وہ میرے پیچھے پیچھے آتی رہی یہاں تک کہ ہم اپنے قبیلے کے ایک کوئیں کے پاس پہنچے۔ پھر میں نے اس کا ہاتھ پکڑا اور کنویں میں پھینک دیا اور جب میں نے آخری بار اس کی آواز سنی تو وہ یہ چلا رہی تھی: ‘‘اے میرے والد! اے میرے والد!’’ (الدارمی)

 

وفي نهاية المطاف يجمع موضوع البيئة وحماية الأرض بين أتباع ديانات مختلفة في نضالهم المشترك من أجل الحفاظ على أساس الحياة لكل الكائنات وقد تبين أن هذا الموضوع من الأعمدة الأساسية للحوار بين الأديان. صحيح أن التعامل مع القضية من منظور الدين ليس كافيا لحل مشكلة التغير المناخي، لكنه قد يسهم في تغيير الوعي. لقد تطور الخطاب البيئي الإسلامي بصورة متنامية في شبكة الإنترنت على وجه الخصوص ويبدو أن الكثير من المسلمين يجدون شيئا ملهما في كون دينهم يحض على السلوك الرفيق بالبيئة ويدعمه.
