Failing that, she is identified as a successful CEO, her story misappropriated to fit a capitalist, materialist worldview, where economic worth is the only one worthy of mention.

Without understanding how history changes society and persons, how can the Ulema be the thought leaders in their community?....

    Having failed to establish its case by telling lies upon lies about the Qur'an in their recent submission as reported by the media and exposed by this writer in his last two articles [3-5], the advocates of triple Talaqs an Islamic custom, have taken to a labyrinthine legal argument to support their case. It is reminiscent of labyrinthine Fatwas by terror groups who will cite opinions of different scholars of different era and overwhelm the lay reader into accepting their views but the world knows they are terrorists and so are those who advocated instant triple Talaq…

    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    The motif that binds the symphony of faith into a symbol of hope is love. Where love is, there God is.   Love is that flame which when it rises, burns everything, only God remains. The whole individuality is dissolved in the ocean of eternal bliss .Love is the attribute of God. We all share the same spark of the divine. God is every person's goal. He is   the ultimate beloved .To be in love with other than Him is metaphorical love. ..

    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...

    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.....

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…..

    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!....

    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 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)…..
