    Blood and Cash Fighting God’s Holy Wars

    In our age, Islam is often taken to task for the violent imagery that is contained within the Qur’an, and the example set by its warrior-prophet, Muhammad, but less often scrutinised is the propensity of Christianity for acts of savagery. Many early Christians held to the pacifism of St Basil, who laid down that Christians who had shed blood were not eligible for communion, but St Augustine of Hippo developed the doctrine of the just war, arguing that it was meritorious to use violence against those who held other religious beliefs....

    There Can Be No Such Thing as Subjective Terrorism
    Syed Kaswar Gardezi

    A terrorist is a terrorist irrespective of race, colour or religion. Stephen Paddock was a terrorist and the only way forward in the war against terror can only be by acknowledging the same. There can be no such thing as subjective terrorism. A terrorist and a violent individual cannot be separated at the will of the west. There can be terrorism in this world without the word Islam present and our western friends need to realise that....

Majlis-e-Ahrar called Pakistan Kafiristan and called Jinnah Kafir-e-Azam, but in this country that Jinnah founded, we have to live by the diktat of these personnel.

    Islam, Women and Feminism

    Men are the main cause of half the problems of the world. Let us imagine a world without men for one day.

They would swim in seas and in swimming pools, and would walk in parks late at night without the fear of being attacked. No woman would cry. In fact, life would be a bed of roses....

     
    Islam and Sectarianism

    But what he could not do was to put an end to the Safavid Empire in Iran – it survived. And part of its strategy for survival was to give permanent form to its borders with neighbouring Turkic Sunni empires. The Safavids made their borders permanent by vigorously promoting Twelver Shi’ism on the Iranian plateau and persecuting those who would not conform. Both Ottomans and Safavids used sect to define themselves against the other, mark out their grand strategic goals and above all – to justify using fire and sword against internal dissent....

    The allegations directed against the Syrian Arab Republic in the recent 28 August 2017 report of what is referred to as the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic, with the word “Independent” emphasised to prevent any questioning of the report, reminds us of the infamous false allegations against Iraq prior to the 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq, and the case against Libya by the Human Rights Council submitted to the General Assembly to suspend Libya, prior to bombings on Libya by coalition forces....

    Aung San Suu Kyi Has Not Changed – We Simply Ignored Evidence of Her Ideology

    Aung San Suu Kyi is the therefore same person she has always been. She remains the pro-democracy leader and visionary she was when she received the Nobel Peace Prize. All that has changed is that now, her bubble has truly burst and we all finally get to find out that her vision for democracy for her country never included the Rohingya. She may not have chosen to cleanse the Rohingya from the country herself, but she doesn’t terribly mind if that were to come to pass....

    علماء نے ہمیشہ اپنی بساط بھر امت مسلمہ کو دین سے جوڑے رکھنے اور اسلام کو اللہ کی زمین پر نافذ کرنے کی کوشش کی؛ چوں کہ ان کی یہ کوشش حکمراں طبقہ کے عیش و عشرت کے منصوبوں میں خلل انداز ہوتی تھی؛ اس لئے زیادہ تر وہ اپنے اپنے عہد کے حکمرانوں کے معتوب ہی بنے رہے، حضرت حسین رضی اللہ عنہ نے تو قرنِ اول میں نذرانۂ شہادت پیش کردیا تھا، امام ابو حنیفہؒ کو بنو امیہ اور بنو عباس دونوں زمانوں میں حکمراں شبہ کی نظر سے دیکھتے تھے، دونوں حکومتوں میں انہیں کوڑوں سے مارا گیا۔

    Why Muslims Need Their Own Media House
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Muslims are also reported in the mainstream media through their ‘peculiarities’, particularly in terms of their religion. Thus stories on triple Talaq, polygamy and such issues gain wide prominence within the mainstream media. A bit of research would tell us that polygamy is more among Hindu castes than Muslims, but when there is a discourse of relating a community to the practice of its religion, and then all facts and figures are given a go by. The problem is compounded by the well-entrenched belief among the media establishment that Muslims are best represented by the Ulema. And thus we have in television studios Muslim religious clerics who through their ignorance and trying to reduce everything to religion, end up giving a bad name to Muslims.....

    Challenging Male Authority In Muslim Contexts: What Can We Learn From The Recent Report By Musawah?
    Dr. Adis Duderija, New Age Islam

    Briefly and generally speaking, in neo-classical articulations of Islamic law men as husbands and/or fathers as a category are given authority, asymmetrical and privileged  rights over many aspects of their female folk ( e.g. wives and daughters) including unilateral right to divorce ( Talaq) , custody over children , unilateral right to polygamy, right to marry off minors ( usually girls-marriage to girl minors as young as  nine in places such as Saudi Arabia and Iran is still legal), nearly absolute sexual rights and various forms of disciplining...

    Islamic Society

    The Muslim world throughout is plagued with the presence of two parallel education systems Schools, colleges and universities on the one hand and Madaris or Darul Ulooms on the other. They are parallel in a textbook definition of parallel lines; two lines that never meet. Together they are tearing the fabric of the Muslim community by pulling it in opposite directions. In order to understand where we stand and where we are headed with what we have, it is important to look at how we ended up where we are now.....

    Dhaka Attack: Facing The Challenge Of Zakir Naik, Will Ulema Rise To The Occasion?
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Our focus should not be so much on Zakir Naik as on the question: why and how he has so easily succeeded in radicalising millions. Saudis and ahl-e-hadithis have only provided him logistical support. In my view the reason he has succeeded is that he is not saying anything new. He is using the theology of consensus, the same theology that is taught in universities and madrasas of all schools of thought.

    His distinction is in the presentation, using modern means of communication. He is reaching those who did not have access to this theology before.

    That is why ulema cannot oppose him or other militant Islamic preachers. Sufi-Barailvis and even Deobandis have tried. They are angry because he has exposed their hypocrisy. ...

    Islam and Judaism
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

    Like Christianity, Islam and Judaism are what are called ‘Semitic religions’. But despite this, due to some reasons there is a widespread negative feeling among Muslims about Jewish people. This kind of negative thinking is not Islamic thinking, however. It is due to some political reasons. Islam is a positive ideology. Islam believes in positive thinking. The most important teaching in Islam is to live with positive feelings even in negative situations....

    Islam’s ‘Golden Age’: Rationalist Disciplines In Islam Survived Well Into The 16th and 17th Centuries
    Ateeb Gul

    Far from being just an exercise in historical pedantry, an accurate portrayal of this historical period has real ramifications for the Islamic world today. Actual recommendations are made by educationists and policymakers based on the now-rejected myth of post-13th century decline. If we are to learn from history, as the old adage goes, we need to first get it right....

    Break Up Pakistan to Resolve Kashmir Jihad
    Tufail Ahmad, New Age Islam

    In present times, nations are invaded by ideas emerging from internal and external sources. There are two recent examples of this argument. One, Syrian refugees arriving in Europe have practically invaded local cultures, disturbing the rule of law in European countries. Two, in India television debates about pellets guns have emerged as more powerful than bullets, thereby posing a threat to peace in Kashmir. The tragedy of the Indian mind is that, in responding to the war in Kashmir created by the Pakistani-jihadi mind – it is seeking a political solution. In this context, discussed below are some difficult ways to resolve the Kashmir issue but first look at a brief history of the conflict....

    Rejoinder to Dr. Tawfik Hamid’s Article, Stop 'Islamophilia' to End Islamophobia
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    While the list of brutal rulings can be extended, they do not constitute ‘Islamic religious ideology (Sharia), as they derive from the Sharia Law of Islam which is distinctly different from the Sharia of Islam. There is a subtle but irrefutable difference as explained below:

    The Qur’an represents the divine Sharia of Islam (5:48) which is preserved verbatim as revealed over fourteen centuries ago, and is not influenced by the opinion of scholars, politicians, intellectuals, philosophers or any human agency. It uses the words Shira (technically Shir’ah) and Sharia (tech. Shar’iah) synonymously with the generic notion of a system or principles of law (5:48, 45:18). It expounds fundamental universal notions for just and harmonious governance of human society. These include, among others, justice, liberty, equity, good deeds, good neighbourly and inter-faith relations, sharing of wealth with the poor, eradication of slavery, deliverance of women from various entrenched taboos, empowerment of women use of intellect (Aql) and rational logic (Fiqha) , striving for excellence – to cite some major examples….

    Madrasas and Failure of Muslim Leadership
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    There was an attempt made by the earlier government to bring all such madrasas under one umbrella by creating an All India Madrasa Board. It was a good idea to start with, but with various interests competing as Muslim interests, there was hardly any headway and eventually the suggestion went to the cold storage. The interesting part of this proposal was the it were Muslims themselves who had drafted this proposal. But then for many successive governments, some Muslims are more important than others. The opposition to this proposal from the Ulema saw to it that the bold proposal by reform minded Muslims was shelved....

    On the Self Acquired Importance of the Ulema
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The ‘golden age’ of Islam tells us that there was always a tension between the Ulema and the philosophers. The latter did not take them seriously and at times publicly lambasted them for their limited understanding of how the world works. To make matters worse, there were poets whose favourite pastime was ridiculing the Ulema for the incoherence of their thoughts. Moreover, philosophers were Aalims in their own right: no one could accuse IbnSina or IbnRushd for not knowing religion. Indeed, in their own worlds there was hardly a distinction between the pursuit of religious and material knowledge....

    Radicalism Under The Banner Of Islam Is Mutation Of Islam Into A Cult Of Satan – So Muslims Must Create An Anti-Radicalization Narrative To Defeat And Disown It – Part 1
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    This article is in response to a recent press report according to which the President Elect of America, Donald Trump in his first telephonic conversation with the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin identified Radical Islam as the no.1 threat to peace and security of the world in this era. Conceivably, by Radical Islam they meant the ideology of murderous takfirism - declaring an innocent person or group of people ‘Kafir’ and killing them individually, in small or large groups or en-masse in terror attacks. The vast majority of Muslims, the world over, may have been offended or even shocked by this remark as this amounts to putting a tag of terror on their faith for the heinous crimes committed by an infinitesimally small minority of its followers. But they must not take the words of these great leaders as anti-Islamic rhetoric and search their souls.....

    For the Muslim nation as a whole, which considers Saudi Arabia, the cradle of Islam and the birth place of Messenger Muhammad, a samite, cannot by any stretch of imagination be branded as anti-Semitic. That would be thoroughly blasphemous. Therefore to say that Muslims, as followers of the faith Islam are anti-Semitic is compounding the felony since they, just as the Jews claim to be of the “nation of Ibrahim” because they follow the faith established by Aba Abraham, long before Moses and Muhammad were born....
