Will Turkey Become another Pakistan?
Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

The regularity with which terrorists are able to attack key cities in Turkey is alarming. The previous year saw more than 25 terror attacks in different parts of the country including Ankara and Istanbul. Most of these attacks have been attributed to Islamist terrorism but then even the erstwhile secular formation like the Kurdistan Workers’ Party is not unknown to have used terror tactics. The latest attack yesterday on a nightclub in Istanbul is just one more in a series of such attacks. It is not clear whether there were multiple attackers involved but surely the analysis is veering around the consensus that it seems to be the handiwork of the ISIS. ...

اور صوفیائے اور عرفاء فرماتے ہیں کہ جب کوئی انسان نفلی عبادات اور سخت ریاضات و مجاہدات کے ذریعہ نفس کو مار کر اس کے علائق اور اس کی کثافتوں اور شقاوتوں کو دور کر دیتا ہے تو وہ جلوہ ذات حق کا بلاحجاب مشاہدہ کرتا ہے۔ گویا کلمہ شہادت زبان سے اللہ کی وحدانیت کا اقرار کرنا ہے اور نظریہ وحدۃ الوجود  روحانی حقائق و معارف اور باطنی اسرار و رموز کے مشاہدے  کی بنیاد پر اللہ کی وحدانیت کا اعلان ہے۔ جس کا اعلان حضرت شیخ اکبرمحی الدین ابن عربی(637ھ/1240ء) نے ان الفاظ کے ساتھ کیا ہے: "الحق محسوس والخلق معقول"۔ حقیقی وجود تو صرف ذات حق تعالیٰ کا ہے اور باقی تمام مخلوقات حقیقت کے اعتبار سے کچھ بھی نہیں صرف سمجھ کاپھیر ہے۔

At the Hindu temple, the men huddle together in rooms for a shared meal of delicacies of sweet rice made with raisins, sweets, and dried fruits. In the evening, they sit around in a candle-lit courtyard talking and speculating over the future of Afghanistan, a country they love dearly....


For generations of military history students, the story of how the humble pig defeated the Indian elephants of the King of Macedonia, Antigonos II Gonatas, has had a simple lesson: in war, it’s often the smarter side, not the stronger one that wins.....


The Awami League (AL)-led Government, which came to power on January 6, 2009, has consolidated its secular commitments through 2016, reining in Islamist extremist groups and targeting the Left Wing Extremist (LWE) movement in the country. According to partial data collected by the South Asia Terrorism Portal (SATP), 74 Islamist terrorists were killed and another 1,227 arrested across Bangladesh in different raids in 2016....


This is a picture of the two women, Sharmila and Fouzia, whose main existential purpose in 2016 was to travel to various European countries to get harassed. Both landed in a European country without niqabs but wore hijabs the moment they left the airport. When they didn’t face any harassment, they wore an open-faced burqa. When even this didn’t trigger any harassment, they adorned a full head-to-toe niqab. When this too failed to attract any Islamophobic pestering, they felt offended and believed that they had let down their faith.....


To interview a Jihadi is one thing, to live among Jihadis quite another. To share their prison cells and their jail trucks on the way to a dictatorship’s trials is both a journalist’s dream and a journalist’s nightmare. Which makes Mohamed Fahmy a unique figure: in a prison bus, he hears his fellow inmates rejoicing at the beheading of a captured journalist in Syria. “They won’t let us out,” a voice shouts at Fahmy in Egypt’s ghastly Tora prison complex. “We haven’t seen the sun for weeks.” And he hears the rhythmic voices of prisoners reciting the Quran....


When state institutions fail to understand the nature of a challenge, they tend to propose old, traditional solutions. The same is happening in the case of madressahs. Introduce English language, mathematics and computers in madressah curriculums and that will transform the institutions. This is what the interior and religious affairs ministries recently proposed....


"We will take revenge from everyone who kept silent and everyone who applauded the death of all innocent immaculate souls in Aleppo," Hosam Al-Bakri, a teary-eyed youth refugee told me, referring to the recent recapture of Aleppo, considered as a fateful victory for the Syrian regime over the armed opposition. "Assad is worse than ISIL, believe me," he continued. This judgement may raise a few eyebrows, but it shouldn't, as this is an inevitable sentiment of young people watching their fellow countrymen killed in cold blood and evacuated from their homes....

From 1745 to 1818, the Wahhabi movement waged the global jihad going berserk more than even the Kharijites in their atrocities, as the 18th century Arab scholar Shaykh Zaini Dahlan Makki, writes in his Arabic book “Al-Balad Al-Haram” (the sacred city). The aggression of the Wahhabi jihadists spread rapidly throughout the Muslim world, causing great distress among the common people. Given this, the governor of Egypt, Muhammad Ali Pasha sent his army to Saudi Arabia on the behest of the Ottoman Caliphate. After a long battle, the Egyptian forces defeated the Najdis and completely destroyed the capital of the first Saudi dynasty, Diriyah where the Wahhabi movement spearheaded. Thus, the Wahhabi jihadsim was militarily defeated to an extent, but it remained active on an ideological level to this day and age…..

Two men among the children of Israel were the opposite of each other. One of them was a sinner and the other would strive in worship. The worshiper would see the sinner and tell him to stop. One day he found him sinning so he said: Stop! The sinner said: Leave me alone, by my Lord, have you been sent as a watchman over me? The worshiper said: By Allah, Allah will not forgive you or admit you into Paradise. Later their souls were taken and they met in the presence of the Lord of the worlds. Allah said to the worshiper: Did you have knowledge of me or power over what is in my hand? Allah said to the sinner: Enter Paradise by my mercy. And Allah said to the worshiper: Take him to the Hellfire....

اگر خالص علمی  نقطہ نظر سے ان دونوں آیتوں کا تجزیہ کیا جائے تو اس کا خلاصہ یہ ہے کہ مذکورہ بالا دونوں آیتوں میں اللہ رب العزت نے خود ہر شئی  کو مرتبہ  فناء یا حالت عدم میں رکھا ہے اور قرآن میں اس کا اعلان بھی فرمایا ہے۔ اور وہ اس طرح ہے کہ جب اللہ نے فرمایا "کل شئی" یعنی ہر شئی، تو ہم نے ہر شئی کا وجود مان لیا۔  اب اگلا لفظ ہے "ھالک" جو کہ عربی گرامر کی رو سے اسم فاعل ہے اور   اس کی شرط یہ ہے کہ شئی کی شئیت پر فاعل کی صفت یعنی "ہلاکت" کا ورود ضروری ہے۔ اس کا مطلب یہ ہے کہ کسی بھی صورت یہ ممکن ہی نہیں کہ جس شئی کو "ھالک" یعنی ہلاک ہونے والا کہا گیا اس کا وجود صفت ہلاکت کے ساتھ قائم نہ ہو۔اور ہلاک ہونا معدوم ہونے کی ہی ایک صورت ہے۔ اور مذکورہ بالا آیاتِ کریمہ سے یہ ثابت ہوتا ہے کہ ما سواء اللہ کائنات کی ہر شئی کے اندر ہلاکت یا معدومیت پائی جاتی ہے اور یہی اس کی حقیقت بھی ہے۔لہٰذا، ثابت ہوا کہ  اس کائنات میں حقیقی وجود صرف ذات حق تعالیٰ کا ہے اور اس کے علاوہ باقی تمام چیزیں "معرض ہلاکت" میں ہیں۔

The long term solution has to be explored in the contexts of a state and a society that have very little tolerance and affection for a community that are racially and religiously different that has faced relentless persecution over the years and also that the continued persecution not only challenge the humanity but also endanger regional security through refugee crisis and that “like other stateless and unrepresented Muslims, [the Rohingyas] are at risk of producing a persistent terrorist threat”...

Notwithstanding, the Western interest in the Syrian civil war has mainly been to ensure Israel’s regional security. The Shi’a resistance axis in the Middle East, which is comprised of Iran, the Syrian regime and their Lebanon-based proxy Hezbollah, posed an existential threat to Israel; a fact which the Israel’s defence community realized for the first time...


You simply cannot beat an ideology with legal manoeuvring and legislative moves. While we thought hanging Qadri, the gunman, for his disregard for the law would result in establishing some semblance of sanity, what ensued was a stunning mass of his “followers” showing defiance against the writ of the state as they gathered for one of the largest funerals this country has seen. Now there are reports that he is also getting a multimillion shrine built at his burial grounds, which will naturally turn into yet another gathering point for the hardliners....


In the tail-end of this debate, I want to highlight a single incident of Bachabazi occurred on 14 December 2016 in Jowzjan province, where known war criminal and Vice President of Afghanistan, General Rashed Dostum sexually abused a former governor Mr Ahmad Eshchi. He (Mr Eshchi) told journalists that Vice President and his ten cronies sexually assaulted him, raped him and kept in a private jail for five days. This shameless incident painted a transmogrified picture of the Afghan nation in the international community....

Being at places of worship of different faiths helped me to reflect on my own devotion to God or the lack of it.  As I laid out my prayer mat to complete my night Namaz, I was filled with immense gratitude to the people at the Gurudwara, the Bhajan singers at the ashram, the gentle Buddhist monks at the Vihar and my kind Christian friends for teaching me the values of service, devotion and generosity. I am hopeful these values will help me become strong in my connection to Almighty Allah!...

Talking to New Age Islam, Hazrat Syed Muhammad Ashraf Kichchawchchwi, the founder and president of the AIUMB, said that a selected group of Islamic experts on the Hanafi jurisprudence (Fiqh) will govern an all-India body of muftis and Ulema and hence the AIUMB will form a complete council of Islamic jurisprudence (Majlis e Shar'ai) to address Muslim personal laws and other related issues with a unanimous opinion (Ijma’a) in order to help reduce the religious controversies in the Muslim community……
