A Convenient Adversary?

The Emergence of violent Islamism in the heart of the Western world, and the "war on terror" proclaimed against it, led to some interesting ideological trends. One might be described as progressive Islamophobia: a school of thought which, from a left-of-centre perspective, insisted that militant Islam was really a reactionary force ….

God is a Spiritual Realisation beyond Description

The world of Hindu gods and goddesses is varied and complex. Nobody really knows how many gods and goddesses are actually there. Spiritual masters and Indian scholars are unanimous, however, that although the Puranas and other scriptures refer to numerous gods and goddesses, Vedic monotheism considers these godly figures to be various aspects of a single god.…..

Arun Kundnani’s “The Muslims Are Coming!”

The War on Terror unleashed immense violence in several Muslim-majority countries, either through outright invasions and occupations or through drone strikes and special operations undertaken by the CIA and various branches of the American military. The ideological justification for these wars rests upon the construction of a nebulous enemy—driven either by an adherence to Islam or,….

The Crucible of Iraq

Hallucinations merge with reality in wartime. Your eyes and memory play tricks on you. You experience things and then wonder if you experienced them.  Morality is turned upside down. Killers prey on the weak, the vulnerable and the innocent in the name of God or the state or some twisted ethnic loyalty. Murderers and assassins are rich and powerful statesmen. American soldiers blow up houses on a whim, obliterating entire families. Death is a lucrative industry.….

The Islamophobes Have Arrived

This is a book about western hypocrisy and western fear. It is also about the artificiality of race and the hateful idiocy of its spawn, racism. The content is simultaneously provocative and thoughtful. Kundnani indicts a system based on prejudices and falsehoods and presents a future that is bleak at best unless that system changes. The Islamophobia of western governments has already caused at least two wars this century…..

The Trouble with France: The Largest Muslim Community in Europe Seethes on the Periphery

Here, Hussey argues, a grim struggle is unfolding, pitting France’s Muslim minority, Europe’s largest, against the French state. Combining history, travelogue and reportage, Hussey explores the long, tangled history of France’s colonial conquest of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia in the 19th and 20th centuries and the fraught legacies of the period that the author says cast a shadow over contemporary France…..

Islamic Economy During Khilafat-e-Rasheda (Concluding Part)(خلافت راشدہ کا اقتصادی جائزہ (آخری حصہ

کاروباری عرب کبھی  غلام کی ایمانداری او رکار گذاری  سے خوش ہوکر او رکبھی کسی با ہنر ، باشعور اور مخلص غلام کی صلاحیتوں  سے اپنی تجارت  یا کاروبار میں فائدہ اٹھانے کے لئے  بلامعاوضہ آزاد کردیا کرتے تھے ۔ بوڑھے اور دور ازکار غلامو  ں کو بھی جو آقا پر بار ہوتے عام طور پر آزاد کر دیا جاتا تھا ۔ آزاد کردہ غلام کو مولیٰ ( تابع) کے لقب سے یاد کیا جاتا تھا، اس کی آزادی  کے ساتھ بہت سی پابندیاں لگی ہوئی تھیں ۔ عرب معاشرہ میں مولیٰ آزاد  عرب کا ہمسر نہیں ماتحت  اور دوسرے درجہ  کاشہری  تھا ۔ اپنے آزاد کنندہ  کا تا حیات وفادار و مددگار رہنا اس کا سماجی فرض تھا ۔ اس کی میراث میں اس کاآزاد کنندہ  شریک ہوتا تھا لیکن  آزاد کنندہ  کی میراث سے مولیٰ  کو کوئی حصہ  نہیں ملتا تھا ۔

Islamic Economy During Khilafat-e-Rasheda (Part 24) خلافت راشدہ کا اقتصادی جائزہ حصہ 24

عثمان غنی رضی اللہ عنہ نے اپنے عہد میں فاروقی سنت پر عمل کیا لیکن علی حیدر رضی اللہ عنہ کاطریق کار اپنے تینوں پیشرووں سے مختلف تھا ۔ انہوں نے نہ تو غلاموں کو کچھ دیا نہ مسلمانوں کے درمیان فرق مراتب قائم رکھا ۔ انہوں نے عمر فاروق رضی اللہ عنہ کے دیوان العطا کی درجہ بندی تو بر قرار رکھی لیکن نئی تنخواہیں مقرر کرنے میں فرق مراتب کا اصول ترک کردیا اسی طرح وہ اس روپیہ  پیسہ او رمال و متاع کی تقسیم میں بھی مساوات سے کام لیتے جو غنیمت کی راہ سے آتا یا تنخواہیں دینے کے بعد بچ رہتا تھا ۔

ہجرت سےپہلے علی حیدر رضی اللہ عنہ کی مالی حالت او رمعاشی سرگرمیوں  سے ہم بے خبر ہیں،بظاہر ایسا  معلوم ہوتا ہے کہ ان کا کوئی  مستقل ذریعہ نہیں تھا اور وہ اپنے والد ابو طالب کی وفات کے بعد رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے زیر کفالت زندگی بسر کرتے تھے ۔ ہجرت کے بعد جب ا ن کی عمر بائیس تئیس سال سے زیادہ نہ تھی دو ڈھائی بر س تک وہ سخت عسرت میں مبتلا رہے ۔ ایک وقت ایسا بھی آیا جب انہوں نے فی کھجور ایک ڈول کے حساب سے کسی  یہودی کےکنوئیں سے پانی کھینچ کر پیٹ بھرا ۔ 2 ؁ ھ میں ان کی شادی رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کی صاحبزادی فاطمہ رضی اللہ عنہ سے طے ہوئی تو وہ بالکل تہی دست تھے ۔

Sexuality, Islam and Politics in Malaysia

tan shows how struggles over the symbolic meaning of “Islam” have tangible, material consequences. In particular, her work demonstrates how the “state” is not a fixed entity, but something that is constantly evolving. By extension, through its instrumentalisation of “Islam,” the “state” is also responsible for making different aspects of “Islam” salient at different points in history.  In other words, much of the meaning of “Islam” is also constructed by dynamic social forces. Thus, although anti-gay rhetoric in the name of contemporary Islam appears to be a universal phenomenon….

علی حیدررضی اللہ عنہ کا انتخاب غیر معمولی حالات میں ہوا تھا ۔ انہیں نہ عثمان غنی  رضی اللہ عنہ نے خلیفہ مقرر کیا تھا نہ بڑے صحابہ کے کسی انتخابی پینل نے  بلکہ ان لوگوں کے ہاتھوں وہ اس عہدہ پر فائز ہوئے تھے جنہوں نے چالیس دن عثمان غنی کی حویلی کا محاصرہ کر کے انہیں قتل کر ڈالا تھا ۔ جیسا کہ گذشتہ اوراق میں بیان کیا جا چکا ہے ، پہلے ابوبکر صدیق اور پھر عمر فاروق کے خلیفہ ہونے پر بطور احتجاج مدینہ کے سیاسی افق پر تین پارٹیاں نمودار ہوگئی تھیں ۔ سب سے بڑی اور طاقتور پارٹی علی حیدر رضی اللہ عنہ کی تھی، دوسری طلحہ بن عبیداللہ رضی اللہ عنہ کی اور تیسری زبیر بن عوّام رضی اللہ عنہ کی ۔

The War Within Islam: Niyaz Fatehpuri’s Struggle Against The Fundamentalists: New Age Islam presents a chapter from Juhi Shahin's book

IS RELIGION FROM GOD OR MAN-MADE?

Fateh{puri@ believed in God, and there are various instances in his writings to prove that. However, he was not sure if God had anything to do with religion. As seen in the earlier instance, he tried to rationalize even the divine revelation, and showed that it was possible to see the Qur’an as the personal contribution of the Prophet. This was because, for Fateh{puri@, religion had a more utilitarian purpose, than spiritual. Religion, for him, was to serve as a guide for humanity, to remind them of doing good deeds, being kind to one another, and remembering God, while taking part in worldly pursuits and aiming for progress and success.

In reality, all religions of the world were made by humans and were not related to God, revelation or providence. ...

IS THE QUR’AN REALLY GOD’S SPEECH?

As mentioned above, Fateh{puri@ believed that the only thing that could be proven was that the Qur’an came from Muh{ammad’s mouth; whether it was really God’s speech is debatable. ...

STATUS OF THE PROPHET

Prophet Muh{ammad, according to him, was basically a reformer who was very concerned about the state of his society:­ its illiteracy, ignorance, social evils like polygamy, infanticide, drinking (etc.), its material culture and idol worship. After all, he sat meditating in a cave for weeks even before the advent of the revelation. --  JUHI SHAHIN

Barbaric, Negative And Atavistic Mullahs And Wars In Tribal Areas: Islam in the Indo-Afghan Borderland

Sana Haroon has written an excellent book that will help us understand the killing fields of the Tribal Areas of Pakistan today. This month (April 2008) the local Al Qaeda warlord and alleged killer of Ms Benazir Bhutto, Baitullah Mehsud of Wana, convened a big conference of the Tehreek-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in Aurakzai Agency near the tomb of Haji Turangzai to proclaim that his emirate had come to stay. He was himself not there for fear of being killed by an American drone but his deputy representing Bajaur was there as were warriors from all other tribal areas including Malakand in the NWFP, Book Review by Khaled Ahmed in the Daily Times.
