دعا و عبادت کی حقیقت کو سمجھنے کیلئے دو چیزوں کی تشریح ضروری ہے۔اوّل الفاظ: ماہرین ِ روحانیات کے ہاں ہر  حرف کا ایک خاص رنگ، اور اس میں ایک خاص طاقت ہوتی ہے۔غیب بینوںClairvoyants نے حروف کو لکھ کر "تیسری آنکھ" سے دیکھا تو انہیں الف کا رنگ سرخ، ب کا نیلا، د کا سبز اورس کا رنگ زرد نظر آیا۔پھر ان کے اثرات کا جائزہ لیا تو بعض الفاظ کے پڑھنے سے بیماریاں جاتی رہیں۔

 

قرآن مجید کی متعدد آیات میں خاص طور پر ماؤں کے خلاف کسی بھی رویہ کو سخت حرام قرار دیا گیا ہے۔ آج بھی بہت سے مسلمان ان قرآنی تعلیمات کا احترام کرتے ہیں جن میں ان خواتین کے ساتھ احسان اور حسن اخلاق کا معاملہ کرنے کی ہدایت دی گئی ہےجو ہر نسل کی مائیں ہیں۔مسلمان مائیں آج بھی بے شمار مصائب و آلام کا شکار ہیں کیوں کہ مسلم معاشروں میں خواتین کے قانونی حقوق پر اتفاق رائے نہیں ہے اور ان کے کردار کو حاشیہ پر ڈال دیا گیا ہے۔

 

आई एस आई एस के नाम पत्र जारी करने वाले सभी उलेमा इस बात पर सर्वसम्मति है कि इस्लाम के नाम पर अंजाम दिए गए उपरोक्त सभी अपराधों कुरानी एह्केमात से पूरी तरह अलग हैं। मुख्तसर मुद्दत की खिलाफत राशदा (632-660ई ) से, उनके जैसा होने की तो बात ही छोड़ दें, जिसने एक महान सामाजिक और विचारों की क्रांति ला कर दिया था, आई एस आई एस एक आतंकवादी संगठन है जिसने इराक में अमेरिकी हमले के बाद जन्म राजनीतिक खोला को इराक और उससे मिले क्षेत्रों में एक भौगोलिक पहचान हासिल किया है।

 
Yemen: The Houthi Enigma
Robert F. Worth

Yemen, in other words, has become the latest proxy battleground in the sectarian struggle now playing out across the Middle East. It did not have to be this way. The Houthis, unlike Hezbollah and other Shiite movements, do not take directions from Tehran, and have received relatively small amounts of aid....

 

In neither Iraq nor Syria has Iran invaded or even sent infantry, rather supplying some special operations forces in aid of local Iraqi and Syrian initiatives, at government request. In both countries, Iran has Sunni clients as well as Shiite ones. In both countries, local forces reached out to Iran for patronage in the face of local challenges, not the other way around….

 

Terms such as “Islamic,” “Islamism” or “Islamist” are offered to distinguish Islam -- the peaceful religion -- from Islamism, the extremist ideology. The problem, of course, is that all of these terms are derivatives, by way of suffixes, of the word “Islam.” If the term created to describe the ideology is a linguistic derivative of the word “Islam,” then the ideology concocted to inspire the act must also be a theological derivative of the religion Islam; such is the underlying messaging at play here, however inadvertent....

 

The most recent poster child for this misogyny is Maulana Sherani, of the good old Council of Islamic Ideology. He’s back with yet another statement on marriage, divorce and all things women….

 

The Prophet's Constitution of Medina brought together what Muslim scholars describe as an Ummah Wahidah where all the residents of the state, Muslims, Jews, Christians and pagans, ensured religious freedom, gave all groups representation, established the security of women and declared that no weapon can be carried or blood be spilled on the Haram land of the Islamic state....

 

Islamists view Sharia as the sole legitimate source of politics and government; consequently, they believe that Sharia must be enforced around the world by a powerful and expansive Islamic State….

While militant groups and hot-button issues like Sharia law have understandably drawn significant attention, more fundamental questions about the causes of Islamic extremism in the region have not been adequately examined. Why is the culture of intolerance, hate and violence that permeates so much of the Middle East now being manifested in Southeast Asia….

 

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a very gentle man, he was famed for his honesty, kindness and gentle ways; it was the Prophet’s (pbuh) humanity that made many a people of that era, and of today, convert to Islam. There are countless stories of born again Muslims who have studied the Prophet (pbuh) and his teachings and have changed the course of their own lives for the better….

 

Media outlets in the Arab world were flooded by news, explanations, and interpretations condemning the Islamic State, calling it un-Islamic. Prominent Islamic scholars from different countries all over the world condemned the actions of IS and confirmed the message that IS is not related to Islamic teachings, but on the contrary destroys Islam….

 

The book is comprised of four chapters; the first presents an analytical critique of this elitist current. El-Sharif explains that Islamic feminism searches in religious texts, the Quran, the Prohet's sayings and in Islamic Fiqh(jurisprudence) with the purpose of presenting new readings and interpretations of some matters regarding women....

 

The Sufi Islamic traditions evolved over history with a degree of interaction with Hinduism on the sub-continent. It is a school that includes philosophers and mystics. Sufism embraces the Koran and most of Shia and Sunni Islam's beliefs. Sufis believe that Sufi teachings are the essence of every religion, and indeed of the evolution of humanity as a whole….

 
Islam, Peace, Justice and Dialogue
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

Some of the Prophet’s companions wanted to first solve the problems that existed at that time between the Makkans and the Muslims, instead of first accepting peace. The Prophet did not agree with this approach

 

While promoting her new book, Heretic, on a March 23 episode of "The Daily Show," Somali-born author and anti-Islam activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali made a staggering claim: “If you look at 70 percent of the violence in the world today, Muslims are responsible,” she told host Jon Stewart....

The theatre of brutality and barbarity enacted by Daesh — the Arabic acronym for the self-styled Islamic State — is not new to Pakistanis. For a country long embroiled in the seemingly endless fight against the Taliban, nearly all of Daesh’s acts are a repeat telecast. When the Taliban march into a town, Swat or Miramshah or even the outskirts of Karachi, they ban women from public spaces, mete out their own brand of justice in town squares, unleash a barrage of floggings, beatings and beheadings. All of it is carefully documented in videos and pictures….

.... a particular stream of which is actually disseminating a distorted outlook of life among the students, to an extent that they are apparently willing to kill or get killed without any question in the belief that they would be rewarded in the afterlife. It is instructive that none of the assailants did even read any of Oyasiqur’s blog postings yet killed him because a ‘senior’, maybe a teacher or a student of one Madrasa or the other, told them that Oyasiqur ‘was writing against Islam and the prophet Muhammad’....

 

Over the last few years, religious groups and sub sects have mushroomed in West Bengal that advocate a strict observance of Islamic practices. For example, the followers of groups that wear a green turban believe that a Muslim should not eat or drink in a house where the people do not grow beard. Similarly, other group suggests that the funeral prayer of someone who was not a namazi (saying prayers five-times-a-day) should not be attended and the person should not be allowed to be buried in a Muslim graveyard.  A senior journalist of Kolkata had said on this situation, “Now we feel scared with the growth of religious intolerance in the state.”

While ISIS does not command any sympathy among the Ulama and Imams of the world – with the exception of its own ideologues, they all share the global disgrace ISIS evokes for its claim to representing true Islam. There is also a growing misconception among the non-Muslims of the world that the Muslims’ claim of Islam being a religion of peace is a mere propaganda and a bluff.  The sad reality is ISIS is continuing to attract recruits, especially from among the new converts or those having no knowledge of the message of Islam, and those opposed to Islam are producing pamphlets with false information and quotations to directly implicate the Qur’an as the ideological fount of ISIS…..

Referring to the assault on him, Masum Akhtar said he was attacked by a group of radicals who were unhappy about his writings and views. These radicals thought Akhtar was anti-Islam, though he himself repeatedly countered that perception….

 

You can stop the spread of the violent ideology espoused by the Islamic State (IS) movement and keep free speech. In fact, the best way of fighting IS is by strengthening democratic governance and not by turning to undemocratic and repressive measures….
