اسلامی ممالک میں آپسی تعاون کو بڑھانے کےلئے بنائی جانے والی تنظیم آرگنائزیشن آف اسلامک کنٹریز (جس کو عربی میں منظمۃ التعاون الاسلامی کہا جاتا ہے) نےاپنے ایک متنازعہ بیان میں کشمیر کے مسئلے پر پاکستانی موقف کی تائید کرکے کروڑوں ہندوستانی مسلمانوں کے جذبات کو مجروح کیا ہے۔ کل اسلام آباد میں پاکستانی حکومت کے خارجی امور کے مشیر سر تاج عزیز کے ساتھ ایک ملاقات میں او آئی سی کےسیکریٹری جنرل ایادبن امین المدنی نے یہ کہہ کر سب کو حیران کردیاکہ کشمیر ہندوستان کا داخلی معاملہ نہیں ہے۔

 

سوم،صدق اور سچائی۔ اس کا مطلب سچا ہونا ہے۔ کبھی کبھی آپ سچ اس وقت بولتے ہیں جب وہ آپ کے لیے نقصاندہ نہیں ہوتا – اور لوگوں کا عمل بھی اسی پر ہے۔ جب لوگوں کو سچائی سے نقصان نہیں پہنچتا تو وہ سچے بن جاتے ہیں۔ کبھی کبھی جب کسی سچائی سے دوسروں کو نقصان پہنچتا ہے تو لوگ سچے بن جاتے ہیں۔ لیکن جب سچائی آپ کے حق میں معاون نہیں ہوتی تو آپ سچائی کا دامن چھوڑ دیتے ہیں، اور اس صورت میں آپ کی سچائی بے معنیٰ ہو جاتی ہے۔

 

In spite of the overwhelming evidences and US's own realization of Pakistan's continued perfidy in Afghanistan, the US continues to rely on Islamabad, at least in with regard to peace talks. Despite a disastrous record of manipulation and failure, Pakistan has been given prominence in the latest peace initiative in Afghanistan....

 
Spooked By Burkini?
Hasan Suroor

But we are in France in the midst of a charged atmosphere after the recent wave of attacks. And in the climate of prejudice and paranoia these have generated there's an automatic assumption that if Muslims are hung up on something there must be a sinister motive behind it. So, the axe has fallen on the humble Burkini....

As for those who believe in the notion of “choice”, well, I’m sorry, but nudists should not have the choice to roam naked on Toronto’s lakefront or Vancouver’s shores; white supremacists should not have the choice to wear KKK bath wear while sun tanning, and neo-Nazis should not have the choice to have swastikas stitched on to their briefs or bikini tops....

And yet, “oppressed”, “sad”, “helpless” are tags that are too freely, too unthinkingly, too carelessly attached to Muslim women wearing headscarves. Such descriptions took off during Taliban’s rule over Afghanistan in the late ’90s, and rightly so, but have since been so abused and hardened, that it’s almost impossible to give an alternative view without being dismissed as “a defensive Muslim” or a “pseudo-secularist”...

 

I would be learning them out of paranoia, an invisible shield meant to protect me. And if I do that, then those five young zealots who killed those hostages would triumph in a way they could never have imagined....

 

Who is going to convince the SC, and how, that these practices are “an integral and essential part of Islam” and that a ban on such practices will “change the very nature of Islam”? Muslim women now know their Quran and the Constitution.

I see it as only one of several important Islamist movements. The most important is the Wahhabi (or Salafi) doctrine espoused by the Saudi government with all its vast resources, then the Khomeinist line of the Islamic Republic of Iran, then the Muslim Brotherhood, then the Deobandi School in India....

 
A Case for Dalit Muslims
Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

Dalit Muslims are those converted to Islam from ex-untouchable castes. They constitute a third category called the Arjals (from the Arabic rizl, meaning of no use) who occupy the lowest rung of Muslim society. These castes are considered unclean even by the lower caste Ajlafs. Some of these castes are Lalbegis (scavengers), Dafalis (the drum makers), Hawari (cleaner), Dhobi (washerman), Halalkhor, Gadhedi, Bakho, Machuara, Nalband, Bhatiara, Gorkan, etc…

کل جب پاکستان  کےایک اسپتال  میں بم پھٹا تو مجھے اپنے بچپن کی وہ کتاب اور اس کا سبق شدت سے یاد آیا۔ مجھے لگاکہ یہ انسانوں پر خود کش حملہ نہیں  ہے بلکہ تعلیمات رسو ل صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم  پر بمباری ہے۔ جس قوم کے رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نےاس بات کی تعلیم دی ہو کہ اگر کافرہ بھی بیمار ہو تو عیادت کی مستحق ہے، اسی رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کا نام لینے والے ایک گروہ نے تقریباً 100 ایسے لوگوں کو مار ڈالا جو کسی مریض کی عیادت کرنے پہنچے تھے یا خود اسپتال میں اپنے علاج کروانے آئےتھے ۔

 

قربانی کرنے کی فضیلت: نبی اکرم ﷺنے فرمایا: ذی الحجہ کی ۱۰ تاریخ کو کوئی نیک عمل اللہ تعالیٰ کے نزدیک قربانی کا خون بہانے سے بڑھ کر محبوب اور پسندیدہ نہیں اور قیامت کے دن قربانی کرنے والا اپنے جانور کے بالوں ، سینگوں اور کھروں کو لے کر آئے گا۔ (اور یہ چیزیں اجروثواب کا سبب بنیں گی) ۔ نیز فرمایا کہ قربانی کا خون زمین پر گرنے سے پہلے اللہ تعالیٰ کے نزدیک شرف قبولیت حاصل کرلیتا ہے، لہذا تم خوش دلی کے ساتھ قربانی کیا کرو ۔

In the Hadith, “Al-Birr is good behaviour.” (Muslim) In the Musnad, from Jabir, Marfu narration states, “They said: ‘What makes Haj Mabrur, O Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him)?’ He said, ‘providing food to people and spreading (the greeting of) Salam’.” (Fath Al-Bari) The following will help one ensure that his or her Haj will be accepted, Insha’Allah....

 

I wish that if I meet a new housemate, they would think of me being more than just my headscarf, that they would think of me as just another human being, with hopes, aspirations and dreams similar to themselves and I hope that they would see me as much, much more than a piece of cloth...

 

I, on the other hand, see semi-clad women as representing a form of enslavement to a social structure that requires them to dress a certain way, be a certain size, and have a certain type of hair and what not. I think that your likes and dislikes are not governed by you. They are governed by your peers, the media and the society in general. I see that as enslavement and I see you as enslaved to the idea of transient beauty and pleasure...

 

Muslims who practice their faith calmly and respectfully are “victims of a semantic problem” when “terrorists” are described as “Islamic terrorists.” “I think we should call a spade a spade,” Bouchamaoui told the UN General Assembly’s high-level forum on The Culture of Peace. “A terrorist is a killer, a murderer, a criminal and I would even say an imposter who is manipulating Islam.”...

Differences of opinion are inevitable wherever people have both intellect and honesty. Complete consensus on every issue is possible only when everyone is dumb, so they cannot think of a different idea, or they are dishonest so they willingly agree with a position that they consider wrong. After all religious interpretations are not personal rights that can be sacrificed away....

مرحوم اکبربگتی کی دسویں برسی کےموقع پر میں نے مناسب سمجھا کہ بلوچستان کی تاریخ، وہاں کی جغرافیائی صورتحال اور وہاں کی خود مختاری کی تحریکوں کے بارے میں کچھ دلچسپ اور نا قابل تردید حقائق پیش کروں۔اس صوبے کو سیکڑوں سال سے ہندوستان کاہی ایک حصہ مانا جاتا رہا ہے۔ صدیوں قبل ‘بلوچ’ لفظ سنسکرت کے دو لفظوں ‘بل’ (طاقت) اور ‘اُچ’ (بلند) سے مل کر بنا تھا ۔ جس سے مراد یہ تھی کہ اونچائی پر رہنے والا ایک طاقتور قبیلہ۔ بلوچستان کی سرحدیں، ایران سے بھی ملتی ہیں اور افغانستان سے بھی اور یہاں کے لوگوں کےلئے سمندر کے راستے بھی کھلے ہیں ۔
