    Who Will Dominate Iraq and Syria after ISIS?
    Jonathan Spyer

    Ownership by the US and its allies of eastern Syria in the post-Islamic State period is the best way to prevent the possibility of the realization of Iran's aims, while presenting Russia with a fait accompli. The indications are that the US administration is thinking in these terms. If so, Iranian victory emerging from the ruins of Syria and Iraq can be prevented. The post-Islamic State landscape in Iraq and Syria is emerging. The contest for primacy within it is set to begin.....

    Muslim Countries Should Follow the Holy Quran  اگر اقوام متحدہ کے چارٹر پر نہیں تو مسلم ممالک کو قرآن کریم کے اصولوں پر ضرور عمل کرناچاہئے ۔ جنیوا میں یو این ایچ آر سی سے سلطان شاہین کا خطاب
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    توہین رسالت کے قوانین اب بھی پاکستانی قانون کی کتابوں میں موجود ہیں۔ پنجاب کے لبرل گورنر سلمان تاثیر کو محض اس لیے موت کے گھاٹ اتار دیا گیاکہ اس نے ایک ایسی عیسائی خاتون کے لیے ہمدردی کا مظاہرہ کیا جسے غلط طریقے سے توہین رسالت کا ملزم بنایا گیا تھااور اس نے توہین رسالت کے قانون کی منسوخی کا مطالبہ کیا تھا۔ اس قانون کی بنیاد پرجبراً مذہبی اقلیتوں پر توہین رسالت کا الزام عائد کیا جا سکتا ہے اور اس الزام کو بنیاد بنا کر مشتعل عوام یا عدلیہ انہیں موت کے گھاٹ اتار سکتی ہے۔اور اس کے لیے کسی ثبوت کی بھی کوئی ضرورت نہیں ہے اس لیے کہ یہ مبینہ طور پر الزام لگانے والے کو دوبارہ توہین رسالت پر آمادہ کرنے کے مترادف ہو گا۔ اسی طرح اقلیتی ہندو، عیسائی، شیعہ اور احمدیوں پر مختلف قوانین کی بنیاد پرحملوں کا سلسلہ اب بھی جاری ہے۔ پاکستانی قوانین میں اپنی شناخت مسلمان بتانے پر احمدیوں پر پابندی ہے۔

    Trump’s Farewell to Charms
    S. Mubashir Noor, New Age Islam

    Liberal internationalism is dead. Or at the very least on death row awaiting execution should US President Donald Trump push forward with his campaign promises. Why? Simply put, his declared priorities as president are at complete odds with the fundamental feature undergirding the post-1945 world order sired and steered by the US. Once the continents emerged from the ashes of World War II, Washington as the only standing superpower promised a benevolent model of international relations that shunned the petty realpolitik of old Europe and its exploitative colonialism. Positive social virtues like human rights and self-government would thenceforth illuminate the twentieth century.….

    The Quran and Acceptance of Other Religions
    Waris Mazhari

    Had your Lord pleased, all the people on earth would have believed in Him, without exception. So will you compel people to become believers? (10:99) […]and had God so willed, He would have made you all a single community, but He did not so will, in order that He might try you by what He has given you (5:48)The Quran, as is readily evident from this discussion, reflects a universal notion of religious tolerance. If this is not reflected in Muslims’ behaviour, the fault lies with Muslims themselves, and not with the Quran....

    I am a firm believer in secular democracy not because I don’t believe in Islam’s progressive elements, but because I see the faith hijacked by retrogressive forces and little inclination within the majority to challenge their hold and develop a progressive Islamic vision. In such a situation, secular democracy seems the best available option....

    Should Muslims Believe In The Jinn? The Hard-Won Mujahid Reformation Movement Is In Danger of Being Undone

    However, after less than a century of leading the Muslim community from the front, the Mujahid movement, the Salafi sect in Kerala, seems to have reached a dead end — some of them, who claim they too are following Salafi Manhaj (methodology), have declared that democracy and secularism are un-Islamic; others are unable to decide whether seeking help from the ethereal being jinn is allowed in Islam or whether Sehr (black magic) will have any effect on human beings.....

    100 Years after the Balfour Declaration
    Robert Fisk

    On an official visit to Israel in 1986, Thatcher said that she regarded discussion of Jerusalem as “internal politics”. In 2001, Tony Blair’s government granted 90 arms exports licences to Israel for “defensive” weapons – including torpedoes, armoured vehicles, bombs and missiles. There is much, much more of this in Cronin’s book, including Blair’s useless and disgraceful period as “peace” envoy to the Middle East and the growing business contracts between British companies and Israeli arms providers – to the extent that the British army ended up deploying Israeli-made drones in the skies of Afghanistan and Iraq....

    And this brings us back to Deoband. Over the years it has become a sort of a franchise, with its graduates setting up their own madrasas based on its teachings and producing some of the most virulent extremists in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. Most of these madrasas are funded by those Saudis intent on promoting their fundamentalist and ultra-conservative Wahhabi Islam – it draws its name from Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, an 18th century scholar who launched a movement to revive pure Islam...

    Book Review: While Islam Is Compatible with Democracy and Pluralism the Current Intolerant, Xenophobic, Exclusivist and Supremacist Theology Is Brazenly Un-Islamic
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The anti-pluralism thesis and theology of the extremist Islamists such as the Salafist author of the book “Mujmal UsulI'tiqad Ahlis Sunnah wal-Jama'ah” should be condemned and refuted point by point to ensure democracy, pluralism and religious co-existence in the Muslim countries. For that, the monopoly of the priestly classes over the Islamic law and philosophy will have to be done away with. A great number of Muslim modernist thinkers, reformists and sociologists who ventured into Ijtihad or rethinking of the Islamic postulates have concluded that democracy is consistent with the progressive Islamic thought. …

    The First Steps toward a Reform of Islam: Muslims should address the violent nature of a certain number of Quranic verses
    Jérôme Blanchet-Gravel

    Muslim representatives should address is the violent nature of a certain number of Quranic verses. Contrary to Surahs revealed in Mecca (610-622), some of the Surahs revealed in Medina (622-632) show a will of power. The reason for this is that Prophet Muhammad has evolved in two different historical contexts in the seventh century in the Arabian Peninsula. If Muhammad was really peaceful in Mecca (610-622), he was more belligerent in Medina (622-632), which explains why a certain number of Quranic Surahs are vindictive...

By shedding human blood and vandalizing the holy graves of prophets and shrines of God's saints across the Muslim world, they continue to defame Islam and Muslims the world over.

Still, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE and other Wahhabi governments are silent onlookers of this dance of destruction. ....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam

    It needs to be reiterated here that the Shariah is a social construct that came into existence at a particular point in time, echoing the values of those times. That was then, this is now. Our times call for a reinterpretation that incorporates the notion of gender equality. Even if these religious bodies baulk at modern ideas of gender justice, they could at least study a few models present in the contemporary Muslim world for ushering in changes. The Mudawana--the new Islamic Family Law--of Morocco is a case in point. ..

    The relevant Quranic verses pertaining to divorce is verse 2:229-30 which opens with Al-Talaqu-Marratan which means 'divorce may be pronounced twice.' Maulana Usmani opines that the word 'marratan' itself implies a gap of time between the two pronouncements of divorce. It is during this period that attempts at arbitration and reconciliation have to be made. After this period, if the differences cannot be resolved, a final and irrevocable third Talaq is to be pronounced, for it has been said that a woman must either be retained in honour or released in kindness.....

    If Islam Means Peace, Why Is Much Of Its Theology Soaked In Hatred, Humiliation, Offensive War?
    Sultan Shahin, New Age Islam

    Among many factors, social, economic, political, psychological, the one common feature is a brainwashing of vulnerable people on the basis of a supremacist, xenophobic, intolerant, exclusivist and totalitarian Jihadi theology. This is a blatant misuse of Islam, a spiritual path to salvation, that 1.6 billion Muslims believe, teaches peace, pluralism, co-existence and good neighbourliness.

     But there has to be a reason why jihadi ideology has gained acceptance so quickly; why fatwas issued by reputed moderate scholars prove so ineffective? How are Jihadis able to create a 100 percent certainty in the minds of some Muslims that violence against innocent people, including Muslims, whom they consider infidel, will please God and lead them to heaven?

     Clearly we Muslims need to rethink some basic features of our theology. Success of jihadism lies in the fact that, at its core, the jihadi theology is not very different from the consensus theology of all other schools of Islamic thought. For instance, jihadists are able to misuse the intolerant, xenophobic, war-time verses of the holy Quran, as Muslims believe that all verses, regardless of the context, are of universal applicability. Indeed, the Islamic theology of consensus, taught in all madrasas, says that Quran is uncreated, meaning that it is just an aspect of God; and so, divine like God Himself.....
