    Islam, Women and Feminism

    Many Muslim-majority countries have official fatwa councils. Saudi Arabia’s decision to add women to these councils is not particularly path-breaking. There is a long, if contested, tradition of women’s authority in Islam, and women hold official religious positions in Morocco, Turkey and elsewhere. The Saudi government has no doubt examined these experiments and deemed it prudent — and harmless to their grip on power — to install women as state muftis.....

    How Salafism's Rise Threatens Gaza
    Colin P. Clarke

    With ISIS' example in mind and that group's success in taking over large swaths of Syria and Iraq, the active Salafi groups in Gaza have gone to great lengths to position themselves as the most radical organizations within the occupied territories. These groups consider Hamas members infidels for their willingness to participate in Palestinian legislative elections in 2006. Salafi groups are inherently opposed to elections, since they believe that only God's law matters and that Sharia is the only acceptable governing platform....

    Pakistan: One Country, Several Systems
    Yaqoob Khan Bangash

    Since its inception Pakistan has always decried that ‘external forces’ are trying to destabilise and dismember it.  This fear has led the state to become suspicious of all regional movements for rights or autonomy, and everything which does not fit the state’s narrative. This mind-set has not only promoted conspiracy theories and made stars out of conspiracy theorists; it has also led Pakistan to become a prisoner to its own fears....

If yes, then how can they expect the Myanmar regime to give Rohingyas their rights when they, too, are busy side-lining them at home. Are Pakistan’s Rohingya children of a lesser god?....

    National Seminar at Jamia Millia Islamia on Islamic Humanism  جامعہ ملیہ اسلامیہ میں اسلامی انسانیت پسندی پر قومی سیمینار

    پروفیسر واسع کا اہم پیغام یہ تھا کہ مسلمان قرآن کو تو مانتے ہیں لیکن اس پر عمل نہیں کرتے - "قرآن کو تو مانتے ہیں لیکن قرآن کی نہیں سنتے" ، اور یہ کہ نبی صلی اللہ علیہ نے ایک مشترکہ مقصد کے لئے تمام مذاہب کے لوگوں پر مشتمل ایک امت واحدہ کی تشکیل دی ، جبکہ مسلمان ایسا کرنے میں ناکام رہے۔ پروفیسر پینت نے کہا کہ ہندوؤں کو ان کی تاریخ صرف تقسیم کے دنوں سے یاد ہے اور وہ اپنی پہلے کی تاریخ بھول چکے ہیں۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ اسلامی اثر و رسوخ ہندوؤں کی خوراک اور حلوہ سے لیکر جسے وہ اپنے دیوتاؤں کو چڑھاتے ہیں اور "پرساد" کے طور پر تقسیم کرتے ہیں ، لباس، زبان، فن تعمیر، کلاسیکی موسیقی تک ان کی زندگی کے تمام پہلوؤں پر ہے –جس کی متعدد اصناف کو مسلم فنکاروں، فنون لطیفہ، شاعری اور ثقافت نے زندہ رکھا ہے۔

    Insha Allah (God-So-Willing): The Metaphysics of the Future
    T.O. Shanavas, New Age Islam

    Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi describes this universe as a battlefield where atom struggles with atom like faith against infidelity. In this struggle some benefit and others suffer. Islamic metaphysics of the future blends chance, unpredictability, and limited levels of free will to form our universe, within the providence of a Most Compassionate, Most Just, and Omnipotent God. Based on the Islamic metaphysics of the future, God proposes and humankind as well as other creatures together transcribe divine proposals, arriving with the future, into monuments of divine creation in the material world....

    Islamic Mysticism, Provides Rich Resources for Developing Theologies of Interfaith

    Sufism, or Islamic mysticism, provides rich resources for developing theologies of interfaith and inter-community understanding, dialogue and solidarity, an urgent necessity in today's world. In this regard, the works of numerous Indian Sufis are particularly significant because they lived and wrote in a multi-religious context, addressing and attracting people of different faiths—Muslims, Hindus and others. Some of them developed understandings of Islam and other faiths that went beyond narrowly-constructed communal boundaries, defying the empty and soulless ritualism that served to divide communities from each other.....

    Where Are Those Who Trolled Sufi Heads Who Met PM Modi In 2015 And Then Organised The World Sufi Forum In 2016?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The Jamiat strongly opposed the World Sufi Forum calling it a political stunt of the Indian government to divide the Muslim community over "Sufism vs Wahhabism".  At that time, Maulana Madani proclaimed: “Sufism is nothing” and that the World Sufi Forum was an NDA bid to "divide the Muslims". In a direct rebuttal to the World Sufi Forum, another leading figure of the Jamiat, Maulana Arshad Madani stated: “Sufism is no sect of Islam and is not found in the Quran”, while accusing the Modi government of "trying to create acrimony in the Muslim community"....

    Supreme Court Has Already Declared Triple Talaq Invalid – So What Is the Need for the Recent Petition to the Supreme Court
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    The Jurists of Islam must know that in Islamic Law only the best of past precedents are valid for any era and those not relevant to the era or cause injustice to any individual or group must be set aside. Hence, no matter which Imams, Caliphs or scholars approved of triple Talaq, they approved it for their time – that is more than a thousand years ago. They never claimed their rulings to be binding for the posterity for all time – a point Imam Abu Hanifa made categorically as mentioned above in this article. So let there be no dilly dallying in declaring constitutionally invalid what is sinful, unlawful, oppressive and immensely dehumanizing to women and gross violation of human rights…..

    Islam and Politics

    This tragedy besets only the people determined not to use their thinking ability, that Quran, their Book they take their oaths upon extols them over and over again to apply and warns of consequences if ignored.

    Because, this ‘thinking’ is hand-balled to the religious brigade who in selfishness and greed for power; stripped of any understanding of welfare and unity of humanity. They therefore ply their politics in the name of their religion(s). It is here that the maxim to separate religion and politics is valid and imperative and must be acted upon sooner rather than later.

    Should not then all our efforts be directed first towards eliminating it through enlightenment and knowledge based education and so do away with the self-promoting fat-cats; that the Quran calls Mutrifeen!....

    A Critique of Bin Laden’s Letter to America
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    There is no doubt, about a rising tide of Islamophobia, but a vast section of the American/ Western population does sympathize with Muslims as reflected by their spontaneous protest against President Trump’s Executive Order banning travel to America from seven predominantly Muslim countries [3], and acceptance of millions of refuges from Muslim lands [4].Hence OBM’s letter under review has no leg to stand on and is in fact no more than an attempt to appropriate the Prophet’s mission of peace, forgiveness and reconciliation for terrorizing people and repelling them away from Islam, rather than offering peace and compassion and inviting people to Islam….

    After Manchester: The Blowback Theory Does Not Explain the Unending Wave of Terror in Muslim Countries

    Manchester, Paris, Brussels, Stockholm or even 9/11 cannot be explained as mere blowback. Instead, they involve a Takfiri method. The driving force behind this method is the ideology of religious fundamentalism that justifies violence against ‘infidels’. The problem with blowback theorists is their inability to confront Islamic fundamentalism. It remains politically correct and safe to scream blowback....

    What Is Nikah Halala, How It Was Established and Where It Stands In Modern India
    Radhika Iyengar

    Nikah Halala is a law that requires a woman to marry and sleep with another man in order to return to her first husband. There have been instances where the husband regrets divorcing his wife through triple Talaq and in the hope of reconciliation, hands over his divorced wife to another man for marriage, under the condition that the latter would divorce the woman the next day. Muta (conditional marriage), however, is considered to be a sin in Islam and the Sharia law does not permit it. The husband is therefore considered a sinner....

    Islamic Philosophy of Pluralism
    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    Islamic doctrine provides for religious freedom. The Qur’an is very emphatic, “Let there be no compulsion in religion” (Q2:256) and “Will you then compel mankind, against their will, to believe?” (Q10:99) Neither the Qur’an nor the Prophetic tradition demands of Jews and Christians that they give up their religious identity and become Muslims unless they freely choose to do so. This is a categorical command, not just a statement. Islam prohibits oppression irrespective of the faith, gender, race or economic status of the victim or perpetrator. The Quran instructs, "Help one another in benevolence and piety, and help not one another in sin and transgression" (Q5:2)…..

    Triple Talaq Row: Social Boycott as Punishment Is Juvenile; AIMPLB Scholars Must Follow Quran and Accept Inevitability of Change
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    The root of the problem for the ulema lies in the stagnation in Islamic theological thought for over a millennium. Orthodox Islam had called for creative rethinking of issues as and when new situations emerged. This was called ijtihad. It was practised by jurists like Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Shafei, Imam Malik, Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal, etc. The gates of ijtihad, however, were closed after that. It was said that fresh thinking is no longer required. No one had the authority to close the gates of ijtihad, but ulema accepted that. This is what has caused the biggest problem. Indian ulema are perhaps the most conservative of all today. They would not even accept what their counterparts in Pakistan and Bangladesh have....

    AIMPLB Advocates Of Instant Triple Talaq Are Gender Terrorists And Traitors Of Islam And May Be Sued For Human Rights Violation Under Cover Of Religion
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    It puts no gender based restriction on a growing up girl. As she reaches a marriageable age (4:6), it allows her to choose her own spouse (2:221).It commands a man to give an agreed dower (saduqat) to his bride but permits her to voluntarily remit a part of it (4:4). It obligates a man to pay half the amount of the dower if it was already agreed, or a reasonable dower (if the amount was not agreed) in the event of his refusal to proceed with the marriage (2:236/237). It exhorts him to be considerate and humane in his conjugal relations by adding a spiritual dimension to marital sexuality (2:223) and dismisses any notion of marital rape by its general prohibition of not taxing anyone beyond his/ her capacity (2:233, 65:7). It entrusts man with care, support and maintenance of his wife (4:34), permits a woman in wedlock to have an independent income and to share it with others (4:32).It abolishes the custom of a man’s abandoning his wife by simply taking an oath without releasing her (2:226).It lays down clear protocol of arbitration to reconcile estranged relations in wedlock (4:35) and sets out a three month time-frame or waiting period for a divorce (2:228/229) to become irrevocable….

    There is no dearth of educated Muslims who have researched and worked extensively on women issues within the community. They are progressives and a majority of them want the practice of triple Talaq to be removed. Yet, we do not see them representing the community on the television screens. Instead what we have are stale mullahs known for their antediluvian views which will put any community to shame. I do not believe that they are called because producers cannot find moderate progressive voices within the community. I believe that it is a well thought out strategy paint the Muslim community as backward by representing them through the mullahs....

    Earlier, Jamia has fairly conferred the honorary degrees to Dalai Lama, Ban Ki-moon and Amartya Sen. These spiritual, social and intellectual dignitaries have richly contributed to the global peace activism, human rights protection and scientific temperament. They do inspire the university’s students and academicians to explore the greater potentials to uphold the universal human values. But what contribution has Erdogan rendered to the educational, social or other humanitarian pursuits? Evidently, the political Islamist leader does not fit into the list of the distinguished awardees of the Jamia....
