    Interfaith Dialogue

    This year, for the first time in 33 years, the solemn days of Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Muharram (the Islamic New Year) juxtapose. In both faiths, the advent of the New Year is a time for introspection and self-examination. The upcoming holiday season for 16 million Jews and 1.6 billion Muslims offers the opportunity to reflect on the current state of Muslim-Jewish relations, how far we have come and the journey as we venture forth....

    But if Saudi Arabia withstood the storms that the Arab Spring caused in its neighbourhood, credit must also to the House of Saud which enjoys awe and respect among the civilians. Or are the citizens too afraid to raise a voice against the House of Saud? The same House of Saud concluded a pact in 1733 with Ibn Abdul Wahhab, the preacher whose dangerous ideology would be known as Saudi-funded Wahhabism. The good thing is that bin Salman acknowledges the mistakes the kingdom made in the past....

From Copenhagen to Los Angeles, a handful of female mosques now cater to Muslim women who want their own place of worship, just as men have had through the ages....

    Instant Triple Talaq Judgment and After
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The statement of the Jamiat Ulema e Hind suggesting that they would not follow Supreme Court verdict only goes on to say how much faith they have in the Indian judiciary. For them, as for a majority of religious fundamentalists, the matter is very simple: if the courts rule in their favour then they would hail the verdict, but if the law goes against then, the judiciary becomes a pawn in the hands of ‘vested interests’. People like Madani bring shame to the Muslim community and people like him are responsible for making the community a sitting target for the Hindu Right wing forces who quickly announce to the world that Muslims do not believe in the Indian nation, far less the judiciary....

    Reflections on Qur'anic Message - Part-12: Institutional Zakat - The Bedrock of Islamic Socialism Feeds Islamic Capitalism in This Era – God Witnessing
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    In sum, the populist model of Zakat in this era is liable to gross manipulation or rationalistic interpretation by the rich, who can become richer and richer without sharing their wealth with the poor in any substantive way. This has created virtually an Islamic Capitalism that frustrates the Qur’anic message on social justice, and widens wealth gap and income disparity between the rich and the poor in practically all Muslim countries. Hence, there is an urgent need to redefine the base and arithmetic of Zakat to bring it in line with the economic order of this era…..

    Islam Calls for Individual Idealism, On The One Hand, And Social Pragmatism, On the Other
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

    The majority of the present Muslims have deviated from Islam. They have adopted a political goal, and a political goal always leads to violence and war. I can say that political rule is not the goal or target of Islam. But many present-day Muslims have adopted political rule as their target and they claim that this is an ‘Islamic’ mission and that their activities in this regard are a ‘jihad’. But I say that this is completely wrong. This claim of theirs has no sanction in the Quran and Hadith. It is an innovation—or what is called Biddah. All these activities in the name of jihad, in the name of ‘Islamic rule’, are wrongful innovations....

    Reflections on Qur'anic Message - Part-10: Spending For Others in Need – Or In Charity
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    The Qur’an that dominated the social, commercial and civil ethos in early Islam must have greatly reduced the income disparity of the times but the remoteness of the era and from the Qur’anic ideals has turned the clock back by many centuries in the Islamic societies. This is reflected in rampant poverty, rising income disparity, lack of social securities, growing number of beggars and child labor, and an increasing availability of cheap industrial and domestic labor in most 3rd world Muslim countries. Hence, the rich and resourceful Muslims who recite the Arabic Qur’an or listen to its beautiful recitation from U-Tube must also heed what it says…

    Al-Qalam's Jihadist Rhetoric: How The Extremist Magazines And Social Media Groups Feed ‘Muslim Victimhood’ Narrative In India?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The in-house Urdu magazine of the extremist outfit—Jaish-e-Muhammad—al-Qalam has published an article urging the South Asian Muslims to wage a violent jihad in Myanmar in retaliation of the persecutions of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. The mainstream Muslims in the subcontinent must refute the radical rhetoric being promulgated for the violent Jihadism in the name of ‘Rohingya Muslims’ like in the Al-Qalam’s article or Al Qaeda’s recent proclamation.  Indian Muslim leaders’ compassion and moral support for the Rohingya refugees is not misplaced. But they should also feel impelled to distance the community from monsters of the jihadist radicalisation....

    Of late, Darul Uloom Deoband issued a strongly-worded fatwa declaring the Tablighi Jama’at "misguided" and the “preacher of perverted views". Deoband seminary has also urged the current chief of the Tablighi Jama’at, Maulvi Sa'ad Kandhalvi to ‘repent in the court of God’. Accusing him of ‘an ideological perversion, misinterpretation of Islamic texts and desecration of Prophethood’, the fatwa pronounced by the Deoband clergy has stated: “It is our religious duty to warn Muslims particularly those with the Tablighi jam ‘at that Maulvi Sa'ad Kandhalvi, the current chief of the Jama’at, is misinterpreting Quran and Hadith”. ....

    Why the AIMPLB Refuses to Learn Any Lessons
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Despite the SC verdict, the AIMPLB still clings to its view that though triple talaq is sinful but yet it is valid in the eyes of Islamic law. None other than Mahmood Madani endorsed such a view soon after the verdict. Thus it is clear that the AIMPLB does not take even the Supreme Court and its decision seriously and opens itself to the charge that actually it does not believe in India’s constitutional democracy. Had there been a different political climate, the AIMPLB would surely have filed for a review petition. They have themselves argued that since the judge has changed, filing a review petition might throw up other practices like polygamy, nikah halala, etc. into the limelight and they fear that there might be another adverse ruling for them….

    Human mind is constantly stalked by evil thoughts and there is a perpetual tug of war between depravity (Fujurah) and moral uprightness (Taqwa) in man’s sub-conscious mind (Nafs) (91:8, Reflection 7). The depravity of mind can trigger a whole series of mental defilements such as anger, jealousy, greed, arrogance, hatred and contempt of others, cruelty, vengeance, and other negativities, and disturb the equanimity of mind and keep it locked in futile thoughts with adverse impacts on personal, social and family life and in the overall well-being of the community….

The Qur’an also refers to them as Nafs al Ammara, (12:53) - the Nafs that draws man to evil, and Nafs al Lawwama, (75:2) – the Nafs that restrains him from evil.....

    The War Within Islam

    Why are Islamic countries not coming forward to take Rohingyas? Are Human Rights for Muslims only?
    In a recent debate on Times Now (Rohingya Debate, 9/9/17), New Age Islam founder-editor, Mr. Sultan Shahin posed a pertinent question to the Muslim panellists: why do Indian Muslim leaders and ulema remain silent onlookers when human rights of religious minorities are violated egregiously in so-called Islamic countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other parts of the Muslim world? Thousands of Hindu girls are, for instance, he pointed out, abducted, forcibly converted to Islam and raped in the name of nikah with their abductors every year. Why no outrage among Indian Muslims who keep, rightly, protesting vigilante killings and other persecutions of Muslims in India and elsewhere. He reminded the Muslim leaders on the panel, that Huqooqul ibad (rights of the creations of God, and just humans, but even animals and plants) is a sacred value in Islam. Have we forgotten this, he asked forcefully.

    We welcome the fact that each one of the three separate judgments reflecting the views of all the 5 members on the constitutional bench have made it clear that the verdicts are concerned only with the practice of instant triple Talaq (“Talaq, Talaq, Talaq”).  The verdict does not in any way interfere with other forms of Talaq – Talaq Ahsan and Talaq Hasan -- which are based on reasonable grounds for separation, provide for a 3-month “cooling period” and stipulate genuine attempts at reconciliation. ....

    'Make Revolutionary Changes in the Islamic Theology of Consensus to Fight Jihadism': Sultan Shahin Asks Muslim Nations at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Sixteen years after 9/11, the issue of Jihadi terrorism has become even more complex and widespread.

    First, though Jihadism is a violent offshoot of Wahhabism and Salafism, the international community has allowed the fountainhead of Wahhabi/Salafi ideology to continue to spend tens of billions of dollars to Wahhabise the world Muslim community.

    Second, we recently saw with horror, but without any protest from the international community, the sight of a UN-designated terrorist, with a ten-million-dollar bounty on his head, launch a political party and nominate another US-designated terrorist to contest democratic elections in Pakistan. Apparently, some countries can ignore UN directives with impunity.

    Third, the Muslim community has failed to grasp that Jihadism spread so rapidly around the world because at its core it is not very different from the theology of consensus that informs the religious beliefs and practices of all Muslim sects. That is why Jihadis are not impressed when we Muslims either proclaim that Islam is a religion of peace and pluralism or when we try to wash our hands off Jihadism by claiming that it has nothing to do with Islam. If we Muslims want to live as honourable citizens in the 21st century’s globalised world, we must rethink our consensus theology in all its dimensions and make revolutionary changes to bring it in line with the needs of present times....
