    डॉक्टर ज़वाहिरी, आपने कुरआन की एक विशिष्ट संदर्भ वाली आयत का हवाला देकर मुसलमानों को गुमराह करने की कोशिश की है, और एक ऐसी कुरआनी हिदायत में विस्तार पैदा करने की कोशिश की है जो स्पष्ट रूप से उस एक ख़ास जमात के हक़ में नाज़िल हुई थी जो इस्लाम के पैगम्बर सल्लल्लाहु अलैहि वसल्लम के साथ जंग के लिए तैयार थीl पिछले पांच छः सौ सालों से अनेकों उलेमा यही कहते हुए आए हैं कि इन आयतों को उसी संदर्भ में देखा जाना चाहिए जिसमें उनका नुज़ूल हुआ थाl

     

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    The objective of maintaining peace, inherent in such Ahadith, must be instilled into the minds of the present 21st century Muslims. To achieve this objective in modern times, they need to first understand it that those who live under a particular government, corrupt, unjust or truly democratic, they are required to obey the ruling government and live peacefully....

     

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Dr Ayman al-Zawahiri, you should have sought to understand the philosophy of Kashmiriyat that reigns in Kashmir before writing your latest missive. The Muslims of Kashmir have traditionally understood the message of Islam much better than the fundamentalists and exclusivists who present Islam as a totalitarian, fascist, political ideology of world domination, which seeks to eliminate all the scores of religions sent by God before Prophet Mohammad. This is the reason why even those Kashmiri politicians who now advocate secession have contested elections for the legislative Assemblies constituted under India’s secular and progressive constitution. This is the reason why only a few Kashmiri youth have taken to the path of terror, which you call Jihad. Most of the terrorism seen in the state of Jammu and Kashmir has been part of a proxy war waged by neighbouring Pakistan for its own ends. Pakistan, of course, has turned export of terrorism to a fine art, affecting all corners of the globe....

    ڈاکٹر ظواہری، آپ نے قرآن کریم کی ایک مخصوص سیاق و سباق والی آیت کا حوالہ دیکر مسلمانوں کو گمراہ کرنے کی کوشش کی ہے، اور ایک ایسی قرآنی ہدایت میں تعمیم پیدا کرنے کی کوشش کی ہے جو واضح طور پر اس ایک خاص جماعت کے حق میں نازل ہوئی تھی جو پیغمبر اسلام صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے ساتھ برسر پیکار تھی۔ گزشتہ پانچ چھ سو سالوں سے بےشمار علمائے کرام یہی کہتے ہوئے آئے ہیں کہ ان آیات کو اسی تناظر میں دیکھا جانا چاہئے جس میں ان کا نزول ہوا تھا ۔ آپ نے ایک ایسے مسئلہ میں کشمیر کے لوگوں کو گمراہ کرنے کی اپنی کوشش میں ایک ضعیف اور موضوع حدیث کا حوالہ بھی پیش کیا ہے جسے آپ جیسے لوگ غزہ ہند سے تعبیر کرتے ہیں ۔ آپ سے کہیں زیادہ مستند سعودی سلفی عالم دین شیخ محمد صالح المنجد نے ان تینوں اسناد کو کہ جن کے ذریعہ ہندوستانی برصغیر کی فتح کے بارے میں یہ حدیث ہم تک پہنچی ہے ، ضعیف یامدلس قرار دیا ہے۔ امام بخاری یا امام مسلم جیسے کسی بھی بڑے محدث نے اس حدیث کو اپنی کتابوں میں نقل نہیں کیا ہے۔ کوئی بھی سنجیدہ عالم اپنی بات کی تائید میں اس طرح کی حدیث نقل نہیں کرے گا۔

    بارہا یہ دیکھا گیا ہے کہ لوگ قرآن کے خلاف کوئی اصول وضع کر لیتے ہیں یا کوئی دینی نظریہ قائم کر لیتے ہیں اور جب اس پر مواخذہ کیا جاتا ہے تو ان کا جواب ہوتا ہے کہ ہم اس نتیجے پر علم و تحقیق کے ایک غیر جانب دار اور فطری طریقہ کار (Natural process) کے ذریعہ پہونچے ہیں ۔ لیکن قرآن کہتا ہے کہ کچھ ایسے لوگ بھی ہیں جن کے دلوں میں شیطان غلط باتوں کی القاء کرتا ہےاور انہیں ہدایت سے ہٹا کر گمراہی کے راستے پر لاکر کھڑا کر دیتا ہے…….

    Islamic Society

    Most ulema in Pakistan and even in India extend the applicability of blasphemy laws to non-Muslims living in Muslim countries. Not to speak of the self-avowed clerics like Maulvi Khadim Razvi of the ‘Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan’ (TLP) or the recently killed Maulvi Samiul Haque of 'Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan' (TTP), even the well-known Barelvi and Deobandi theologians,  Muftis (Islamic jurists) and more scandalously, even the so-called Sufi-Sunni clerics are unanimously agreed upon this. They aver that it is incumbent upon the Islamic government to execute all blasphemers, be they Muslim or non-Muslim. This actually emanates from their reference to this Hadith report as recorded in Sahih al-Bukhari: "Slay whoever has desecrated the Prophet" (من سب نبيا فاقتلوه). (Al-Bukhari. 1997, vol. 9, 46)

    Interestingly, Imam An-Nasai, another authoritative Hadith compiler like Imam Bukhari, has reportedly accused one of the narrators of this Hadith of lying....

    Allah is the sole source of all knowledge of what is right and what is wrong or what is moral and what is immoral. If we wish to master this knowledge perfectly, it is essential that we orient ourselves perfectly to receive this knowledge. The orientation is by gaining a perfect understanding of the nature of Allah or of all His attributes. Misunderstanding of any attribute leads to a wrong understanding of His Book, of right and wrong, and this is the way Satan misleads and deprives us of becoming perfect Muslim....

    Islamic Ideology

    Some politically take out the inappropriate meaning of “elevating the Divine Word”, thinking that this elevation can be done by forcibly converting people to Islam, while this stand is clear violation of Islamic teachings. People can love Islam only when its followers (Muslims) practically abide by the human values and good manners enshrined in Islamic teachings…..

    A number of scholars and exegetes misinterpreted those verses enjoining good behaviour with non-Muslims as abrogated though the Quran does not have any list of abrogated verses within the text of the Quran. There are a number of verses that prevent Muslims from committing violence against non-Muslims and ask them to convey the message of the Quran peacefully and by engaging with them in dialogue....

    Can A Woman Be An Islamic Judge? Revisiting the Question of the Judgeship in Islam
    Justin Jones for New Age Islam

    And, less well-known, are women who did fulfil all the professional duties of judges during the Caliphal and classical periods, when Islam was at its most vital and powerful. Caliph ‘Umar appointed women to senior official posts, such as al-Shifa’ bint ‘Abd Allah, the market inspector of Medina, whose duties included administering the law. Even more striking is Thumal al-Qahraman, a woman who acted as a head of the Mazalim court system - the rough equivalent to the civil judiciary - at the height of the Abbasid Caliphate. She occupied a role equivalent to that of the chief Qazi (Qazi-Al-Qaza’). The fact that she is little known, despite her lesson for the legitimacy of female Qazis, owes not to her lack of importance, but to the neglect of her life story by Islam’s official historians. In recent times, Islamic feminists like Fatima Mernissi have recovered her example to justify women’s legitimate legal power....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad
    Do Not Repeat the Mistakes of 1989 in Allowing the Return of Taliban, New Age Islam Editor Sultan Shahin Asks International Community at UNHRC in Geneva

    Mr. President,

    The US is withdrawing from Afghanistan as well as from Iraq and Syria. Inspired by the Taliban declaration of victory, a radicalised terrorist in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, backed by a Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist organisation, attacked an Indian military convoy, killing 40 soldiers. Similar suicide attack killed 27 elite revolutionary guards in Sistan, Iran. Emboldened Jihadists will surely carry out more such attacks in future. The gloating in Islamist circles for having “defeated” both the superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, has reached its peak.

    Mr. President,

    Still fresh in our minds is what happened when the international community abandoned Afghanistan in 1989. Taliban ruled and Al-Qaeda got a safe haven. A series of atrocities including 9/11 and horrors of Islamic State followed.

     In this backdrop, the complacency of the world community in allowing Taliban to govern Afghanistan is inexplicable. Jihadist strength does not come from their soldiers and territories. It comes from an ideology and ideologies cannot be defeated militarily.

    Mr. President,

    The Jihadist ideology is based on very solid foundations in Islamic history, scriptures and theology. Moderate Muslims have not yet succeeded in evolving a satisfactory alternative theology of peace and pluralism to challenge the current theology of violence and exclusion. Even when such a theology evolves, it will take time and effort for it to be established. Mainstream Muslims should be allowed the time and space to work out and propagate a counternarrative. I would, therefore, urge the international community not to repeat the mistakes of 1989 and invite further disasters....
