Islam,Terrorism and Jihad (21 Apr 2015 NewAgeIslam.Com)


  • Faujdar saheb
    In India Muslims were prepared against British raj using the verses of the Quran because Muslim leaders knew how they can be prepared in the name of Islam.
     Can you tell me how Husain madani and abul kalam azad and other nationalist Muslim leader gave fatwa of jehad against British?

  • Dear fàujdar saheb
    Of course those people were not prophets, but they were mujaddis of Islam who spent their lives to understand the Quran and hadith. For not only common Muslim scholars were greatly influenced by them. Do you think every Muslim could understand the Quran.
    Why mohammeyunus saheb, GRD, GG and Nasser saheban are teaching us the Quran?
    Did Jesus and Budhha launche jehad if they were prophet too?
    If Muslim scholars could not understand the true message of Islam in 1400 years, when they will.
    Everybody including terrorists call their Islam only right Islam.
    Muslims think they are oppressed and they believing that the Quran is guide for every time and place, and life of the prophet is example for them on what ground you call them wrong?
    The Quran is not understandable by everyone so Muslims are bound to follow scholars right or wrong.
    When there is no freedom to ask a question muslims are cursed to follow them?
    Can you tell me why those scholars were called mujaddids? If they could not understand the simple msg who else will. 
    Imam rabbani saw Islam in danger, didn't like Muslims deviate from Islam they launched jehad and ended the liberal policy of some moghul kings.

    So my dear verses of the Quran and hadith will used as scholars want for common muslims have no such caliber to understand the complex Quran and linguistic nuances muslim scholars play with.
    If the prophet was expelled and he started defensive jehad what was the war against zakat deniers launched by first caliph?
    Who killed uthman? Were not the killers of hz uthman sons of the companions of the prophet.
    Islamic history is full of defensive and offensive jehad.

  • Janab Rational Sahib-- Imam ibn taymayyah, Imam rabbani,Shah Waliullah etc, were not prophets.The Quran says "Those who have been expelled from their houses unjustly only because they said 'Our Lord is Allah' "  against this situation fighting is 'Jihad'  and fighting and war for any other purpose is not count under the definition of 'Jihad',

    was there no jehad before USSR invaded Afganistan and USA backed him citing the Quran?
    The verses of the Qur'an have been used always the way scholars wanted. Indian Muslims were made ready to fight against British. what do you think where the Fatwa came from against British in India.
    Ibn e tamiyah, Imam Rabbani sarhindi and sha Waliullah all eminent figures of Islam used the Quran verses to launch their jehad against other faiths in the name of injustice to Muslims.
    Modern jehadis are followers of these scholarts who extensivley used the Quran and Hadith to establish jehad.

  • Dear Aiman Reyaz 
           your your right, a Quranic term had been used in wrong context to incite the Muslims against Russia by USA. Now the Muslims are  also using the word Jihad for terrorism.

  • Really felt happy to read this. They are doing jihar, alright; but it is not the right jihad. And jihad is done for making the society better, not for killing innocent people.

  • Good conference! Congratulations to those who organized it.

  • Dear Muhammad Yunus Saheb and janab Ghulam Ghaus,

    Reading day in and day out news and events like attempt on the life of a school-girl, Malala Yusoufzai in Pakistan, killing of Sushmita Banerjee in Kabul when she went there to live with her Afghan husband, murder of Avijit Roy and others in Dhaka for ideological differences, abduction of school-girls in Nigeria by Boko Haram and assault and rape of small Yazidi girls by IS rebels, makes news reading an annoying and perplexing business.  Anti-Terrorism Conferences like this do help us raise an awareness about the terrorist goons and real culprits among the common Muslim populace who are in the darkness of all this.  

    However, I think, merely conferences are not the ultimate solution. There is no substance in talking of peace, secularism and pluralism to the people who lay claim on pluralism yet believe in separatism. Don't you think there is an urgent need of a genuine and living common sense and soul-searching within our society? Let us think more deeply.

  • Very encouraging indeed for the loud and unqualified abhorrence against terrorism and expulsion of this notion from the doctrine of Islam. One final step must be taken as recommended in these articles before one deadly suicide blast by an ISIS zealot in a sensitive place of worship triggers a massacre, which in turn will create a small pool of ISIS and a small pool of this deadly monster can create havoc in the country. :

    Declare The ISIS As The Kharijites (Those Who Seceded From Islam) As This Article Demonstrates And Declares: Global SOS To The Ulema, Muftis, Intellectuals And Scholars Of Islam


     The Heinous Crimes That ISIS Is Perpetrating Totally Opposed To Islam And Those Killed Fighting For ISIS May Earn Divine Wrath Instead Of Paradise And ‘Hurs’ – An SOS To All Mosque Imams

  • I am feeling ecstatic to see these Ulemas/Islamic clerics holding anti-terrorism conference, taking pride in being Indians and calling for peaceful coexistence. 

    A very nice and gigantic effort for promoting peace and peaceful coexistence. 

    Thanks Special Correspondent of New Age Islam for this report.
