    Why Shah Waliullah’s Thesis should be Repudiated by Indian Muslims
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The Muslim must become puritan in order to relive the supposed lost glory of Islam. For this, purging itself of all accretions and all traces of syncretism was to become the sine qua non of Indian Muslims. As a political project, this tradition continues to this day through the activities of Deobandis, the Ahle Hadees and even the Barelwis. More than anything else, Shah Waliullah’s writings seem to be a fatal recipe for the political future of Muslims in India. ...

    It pained him to think of how he had so much of his life trying to reform others but with no success. One day, tired of these haunting memories, he turned to God and poured out his heart: “Lord, I’ve wasted my entire life! Trying to change others while never once thinking of changing myself only made me a very bitter person—and it didn’t help make others any better. My desire to change others made people avoid me, and it completely ruined my family.”...

    Islam and Politics

    Then there are Muslim minority contexts which are in the form of historically established communities who have been living together with other communities for centuries. India is an obvious example. Yet, over the years, owing to a number of factors, there has been a growing alienation of the Muslim minority communities. Some reasons for this are internal: there is increasing reliance on particular readings of religious texts which is weaning Muslims away from their shared cultural contexts. But the problem is also from the outside: increasing Islamophobia has meant that Muslims have come to be considered as untrustworthy and their religion as the epitome of backwardness....

    Muhammad Asad asks Muslims to take resort to Ijtihad in the formulation of the new Shariah taking into consideration all the necessities and needs of the time and the challenges faced by the modern-day Muslims rather than sticking to Fiqhi deductions made one thousand years ago by the scholars of that time. He says that God wants Muslims to be a thinking community asking in Quran numerous times to think, to ponder and to do research. In other words Quran does not want Muslims to be parrots or a nation devoid of creative thinking....

    Writing from the American context, but making a point that has much broader relevance, Isaacs says, “Today, the doors are open in our society to remove God from everything.

Materialist evolutionists think there’s no God, no ultimate foundation for ethics, and no ultimate meaning to life.....

    If he is really serious about bringing reforms, then it must start with a deep introspection rather than blaming someone else. And one of the first questions that he needs to ask is how the pernicious ideology of Wahhabism has very nearly destroyed the soul of his country. From the looks of it, one can only say that he is not ready to question anything related to the Wahhabi superstructure. Till the time that happens, MBS and his reforms should only be understood as a mere sham. There comes a time in any nation’s present when it is confronted with its own history. Very often, the present offers two possible ways to deal with the situation: either

    “...[A]fter  I was released and reached home safe, I realized that my mission is to be a witness to the fact that THE LORD ALIVE HEARS OUR PRAYERS AND THAT HE WOULD SURELY ANSWER THEM IN HIS OWN GOOD TIME. I realize that I am a living proof that our God still loves us and cares for us. The One who knew me before I was born, formed me in my mother’s womb and called me to follow Him closely is ever at my side, strengthening me. My whole life has been an experience of His presence walking side by side with me.”...

    This situation places an enormous responsibility on people who insist on appearing in public in this distinct manner—for, now they are responsible, in a major way, for the reputation that their religion and community has among others. How they behave in public will play a major role in shaping how others look at their religion and community. It is likely that people who see them will associate their behaviour with the religion that they claim to follow and to their community....

    Why Should an Academic Course on Islamist Terror Rile Muslims?

    We need to differentiate between Islamic and Islamist: the latter only attests the political use of Islam to capture state power where violence is indeed one of the many options. Isn’t this the ultimate aim of Islamists the world over and isn’t it that they have used terror as a method to achieve that end? How do we understand the Taliban and more recently the ISIS except through the lens of Islamist terror? Worldwide, even amongst Muslim scholars, there is now a consensus that it is the ideology of Islamism which needs to be resisted....

    The review is utterly silent on the crucial concept of ‘Zina’ (sex outside marriage), the grave sin punishable by death in many Muslim countries. It is fear of ‘Zina’ which compels many women, even those with civil divorces to seek an Islamic divorce. Procedural changes in Sharia councils will not diminish their role in spreading this concept; to which they provide the only ‘solution’.”...

    Rampant violations of human rights are being perpetrated in the Kashmir valley at the hands of extremist groups and separatist leaders who believe in Pakistan’s two-nation theory. But the UN high commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein has brazenly overlooked all this in his 49-page report. Those who do not believe in the radical Islamic concepts like ‘jihad-e-Kashmir’; global Islamic caliphate and Ghazwat-ul-Hind (Islamic battle against India) face fatal discrimination in Kashmir.  Any traditional Kashmiri Muslim who rejects Wahhabism is targeted by extremist groups. But the first-ever UN human rights report on Kashmir maintains deafening silence on this grave violation of human rights…..

    What Survives Of The Authentic Sunna (Practice) Of The Prophet (PBUH)?
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The Kalima Shahida by making us name only Muhammad violates the Quran as the Quran instructs us not to make any distinction between the messengers. The political compulsion was however to make a pointed distinction to keep the Christians and the Jews from qualifying as Muslims without abandoning their faith.

    The political compulsions combined with the bigotry of the scholars appear to have spawned the project of compilation of the Ahadith to help implement the politicised/bigoted version of Islam. It may not therefore be a coincidence, that all the compilers of the six books of Ahadith were contemporaries as all the six books were published in the latter half of the ninth century. The great stress on following the Ahadith to the neglect of the Quran was necessary to bend Islam to the political compulsions and to what the bigots subscribed to......

    It is time to change the religious mind-set of people to do just that, and obey the Creator's command that He has forbidden to take life except “Rightfully”. There cannot be a more compelling “Rightful” purpose than maintaining the dignity of “Life” at every stage of its journey in this world, for a sensitive person of sound mind and mature age. In dying there is a concern for others. If David Goodall, a nonbeliever in the After-life, but a believer in Life-after was to lobby Muslims for his cause; he would have echoed 'Iqbal's' thoughts to them:

    Defeating Islamism and Jihadism: Evolve a New Theology of Peace, Pluralism and Gender justice, Sultan Shahin asks Muslim States at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    A War on Terror has been raging for 17 years now but we are no closer to defeating Islamist terror. Jihadism continues to attract Muslim youth. This is because the world has not paid enough attention to the ideology of Islamism and Jihadism.

    Mainstream Muslims have considered Islam a spiritual path to salvation, one of the many. Islam aims at reforming society for a peaceful, harmonious, pluralist existence. However, due to certain historical factors, the theology and jurisprudence of Islam that evolved in the 8th and 9th centuries (CE), present Islam as a political, totalitarian ideology of supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance and gender discrimination. It is this theology of violence, exclusivism and world-domination that is taught in madrasas and sustains Islamism. But despite the Islamist violence against peaceful Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the community is still not focussed on the need for evolving a counternarrative of Islam.

     It is imperative that Muslim countries that have signed the UN Charter look into the issue urgently and work towards developing a new theology of peace, pluralism and gender justice. While several countries like Morocco and now Saudi Arabia appear to be moving in this direction, the one country that has made a solid contribution is Turkey. In a decade-long exercise 100 Turkish scholars have managed to limit the number of authentic ahadith to just 1600, out of over 10,000, and provide each hadith with context and suitable interpretation. This book of authentic Hadith has been provided to all mosques in Turkey but I hope it is made available to the global Muslim community in their own languages as soon as possible.

    Allama Iqbal, a poet-philosopher of the South Asian sub-continent had called for the reconstruction of religious thought in Islam almost a hundred years ago. Let us at least start working on it now....
