    Psychological, Social and Political Reasons of Divorce  طلاق کے نفسیاتی ، معاشرتی اور سیاسی اسباب
    A Rahman, New Age Islam

    طلاق کے نفسیاتی اسباب : بیشتر ماہرین نفسیات کانظریہ ہے کہ تقریباً اّسی فیصد مردوں کے ذہن میں شادی کے ابتدائی دس سال کے دوران کم از کم دو چار بار یہ خیال ضرور آتا ہے کہ ’’ یار یہ شادی تو غلط کرلی‘‘۔ حالانکہ یہ ضروری نہیں ہے کہ یہ خیال انہیں طلاق کے ارادے تک لے جائے۔ یاد رہے کہ یہاں امریکی ماہرین نفسیات او رامریکی معاشرے کا ذکر ہے جہاں تمام شادیاں ’ محبت کی شادیاں ہی ہوتی ہیں۔ لیکن محبت کی شادی جذبات کے زیر اثر کی جاتی ہے او رانسانی جذبات میں مستقل تبدیلیاں ہوتی رہتی ہیں ۔

    Who All Are ‘Ahle Zikr’ In the Qur’an? – A Textual Analysis of Qur’anic Passage 16:43-44 to Get a Clear Answer
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    …. analysis of the verse, individually, as well as in conjunction with its immediately succeeding and qualifying verse 16:44 leaves no doubt that the verse was addressed to the Prophet, the word Zikr denotes the previous revelations, and the expression Ahl e Zikr denotes the learned Christians and Jews of the Prophet’s era who were expected to remember the message of the earlier relations. If some Muslim Ulema arrogate the pronouncement of 16:43 to themselves to support the deeply misogynistic custom of triple Talaq, this writer is compelled to say, God witnessing, that the  obsessive misogyny and unmitigated disregard of the misery of instantly divorced poor Muslim women has put a blinker on their mind’s eye against what is clearly written in the Qur’an (about time-framing of divorce as well as in the verse 16:43), or has turned their spiritual bearing upside down that they are telling lie upon lie about the Qur’an to defend the triple Talaq – God knows best...

    Triple Talaq Not Fundamental to Islam
    A. Faizur Rahman

    Given the reluctance of Muslim religious bodies in India to give up their sectarian conformism and delegitimise Talaq-e-Bid’a, the Supreme Court will be well within its rights under Articles 141 and 142 of our Constitution to resort to, in consultation with progressive Islamic scholars, a neoteric interpretation of the terms “Talaq” and “Shariat” mentioned in section (2) of The Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act, 1937, and lay down the procedure of divorce in accordance with the egalitarian and gender-just principles of the Quran....

    Europe and the Muslim Body
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Sex and sexuality was never a taboo subject and early Islamic texts devote pages after pages to its discussion. Hence in Islam liberal ideas may not develop a critique of the body similar to the West for the simple reason that the Muslim body was never denied its pleasures. Thus the reason why some Muslim women would not see the veil as a symbol of sexual repression while the Christian West will is precisely because their historical and religious experiences have been very different. By reading the veil only as a symbol of oppression, Europe wants to universalize its own historical biases, anxieties and particularisms. ...

    God is not a fashion designer and milliner, else Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden would have donned His designer labelled dress and headgear, instead of wearing a giant fig-leaf each to ‘hide their shame’. Nor is He one who orders people to dress up in particular mode of apparel to enter His kingdom. It is not a ‘clubhouse’ that requires a necktie as its “code of dress” to gain entry.

    Islamic Ideology

    “Every word of the Qur’an is God’s message for all times to come, but every injunction of the Qur’an is not applicable for all times. There are mentions in the Qur’an that were clearly applicable for the Prophet’s (PBUH) time alone, like for example the guidance that the Prophet’s (PBUH) wives cannot get married to anyone after his death is a stipulation that is not applicable to our times. Similar is the case with many of the mentions in the Qur’an on slavery. An objective reading of the Qur’an itself clarifies which injunctions of it are time-barred and which of them are eternal.”...

    Muslims have viewed Christians as their rivals instead of looking at them as partners. This was a big mistake that they made. For long, I used to think about why the Quran advises Muslims to help God just as the disciples of Jesus said that they would be God’s helpers. The verse in the Quran which mentions this is in the chapter called As-Saff: “Believers, be God’s helpers, as Jesus, son of Mary, said to the disciples, ‘Who will be my helpers in the cause of God?’...

    Aligarh Muslim University – Muslim Leaders Need to Quit Minority Syndrome
    Tufail Ahmad, New Age Islam

    The Mohammedan Anglo-Oriental College, which Sir Syed Ahmed Khan had established in 1875, was dissolved and re-established as the Aligarh Muslim University by an act of Indian parliament in 1920. The AMU therefore is subject to the provisions of the Constitution. While the Constitution gives rights to minorities to establish educational institutions, such institutions cannot retain a minority character if their funding comes from the Indian state. India being a secular state, AMU cannot get taxpayers' money. Under Article 30(2), the state can give aid to minority institutions. But the AMU's case is not a case of the state giving aid, but a case of the Indian state fully funding and running an institution specifically for a minority community....

These castes are considered unclean even by the lower caste Ajlafs. Some of these castes are Lalbegis (scavengers), Dafalis (the drum makers), Hawari (cleaner), Dhobi (washerman), Halalkhor, Gadhedi, Bakho, Machuara, Nalband, Bhatiara, Gorkan, etc…

"The first condition is that if during waging of jihad the women who come with the enemy forces to support them are captured and the emir of the army distributes them, it is his discretion, we can keep them as concubines. Second, if we explore and find some market where slaves and concubines are sold and the sale is established as a social institution there, the women you buy from there will be concubine....
