    The Maulana explains that before asking a question to someone, one should oneself deeply reflect on the issue. In this way, one would “gain the benefit of intellectual development”. Before asking a question, the Maulana advises, one should try to find the answer to it oneself. “Don’t consider a question as simply a question”, he says. “Rather, make it a means for intellectual development”....

    Three Arguments on Islam That Counterterrorism Scholars Need To Junk
    Aersh Danish

    At this moment, let us understand that Islam, like other Abrahamic religions, is a religion of books. Hence, who reads the books, and how, becomes critical to the manner in which the religion will manifest itself in practice. Texts are nothing without readers, and instead of looking at the words, it would be worthwhile to look at the people who are reading these texts, not just to themselves but also to their followers....

    Why Patriot Tests are Designed to Fail Muslims
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    As a community, Muslims in India have always been burdened to prove their loyalty to the country. They are repeatedly asked to take tests of nationalism and patriotism in order to prove their love for the country. Whether it is cricket match against Pakistan or the matter of singing the national song, accusatory fingers have always been cast on Muslims, reminding them that as a community, they will always have to go through this test of loyalty.....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    The Ikhwan al-Najdiyun influenced by the Wahhabi scholars declared the regional taxes too as un-Islamic and strictly opposed the formation of their country's embassies in foreign lands. According to them, there was no religious legitimacy for the flags of foreign countries being hoisted in the embassies in the 'only' Muslim country—Saudi Arabiya. Those among the Wahhabi followers who did not forcibly convert Sunnis, Sufis and Shia into Wahhabism were castigated as the ‘treacherous’. Those who delayed the demolition of the Green Dome (Gumbad-e-Khizra) which is above the sacred grave of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) were also treated as ‘seceders from Wahhabi Islam’….

    Muslim Women Can Marry Outside the Faith
    Junaid Jahangir

    What is very important, and is stuck out in your conversation, is that you are challenged that your understanding of Islam, and what you’ve come to understand as being standards that you admire as a human being, are not being met by Muslim standards either demonstrated in your family, extended family or community. But what I can encourage you to do is to become more familiar with the Islamic faith and its diverse of opinions – for it is never been a monolithic faith – and come to understand that one has an array of opinions from different schools of Islamic theological thought from which to choose to follow, or utilize Ijtihad (individual thinking) in assessing your particular situation…..

    Maajid Nawaz’s Radical Ambition
    Maajid Nawaz

    On one hand, it’s a distillation of his larger rhetorical project, capturing the confused and painful textures of contemporary Muslim experience that can lead to the embrace of Islamism: an initial lack of familiarity with religion; local grievance spun into a narrative of global victimization; a tribal relation to other Muslims beyond racial and ethnic categorization; the illusion of empowerment through threat of violence. ...

    Assessing the Value of Buddhism, for Individuals and for the World

    Anyone writing (or reading) about Buddhism faces a critical question. What is Buddhism, really? A religion, complete with supernatural deities and reincarnation? A secular philosophy of life? A therapeutic practice? An ideology? All of the above?....

    We Must Develop Ourselves as a Spiritual Personality: A Person Who Loves All Humankind
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

    Jesus Christ rightly teaches us that man cannot live by bread alone. It means that material things aren’t enough for man. Man needs spiritual food, too. I am a follower of Muhammad, and at the same time a follower of Jesus, too. The gist of Sufi teaching, according to my study, is Sulh-e Kul or love for all. It is the same teaching that we find in the New Testament....

    The Dogmatic Atheists
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The earliest philosophers were also believers. They believed in an afterlife, an immortal soul and in justice finding perfection in our afterlife. They took the moral principles from religion and the ample empirical evidence that was available from practicing these within religious beliefs, and discovered that these made immense practical sense. The moral principles from religion appeared perfectly logical in hindsight. They therefore used reason, and developed theories of ethics based on reason and pragmatism. We therefore have theories of Utilitarianism, Consequentialism etc in philosophy....

    ISIS in India?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The media overreach which happened in this case actually helps no one. Going ballistic over the ‘ISIS in India’ and coming to conclusions even before the investigating agencies have started looking into the profile of alleged terrorists only helps stoke negative fears about a section of Indian population. More so when the same media houses have maintained a studied silence on the alleged links of some members of Madhya Pradesh unit of BJP with the ISI or the recent conviction of some members of the RSS in Ajmer blast case. This hypocrisy only lends credence to the perception that the media is biased and has an agenda which makes the Muslim community nervous.....

    Aspects of Islam in Asia – Part One
    Dr. Mohamed Chtatou

      For faith, in general, the effect is reverse, the further one moves from the centre, the stronger and purer it gets. Indeed, in Christianity the further one moved from the Vatican, in Rome, the more devout the people are, as is the case in Latin America and in the Philippines. This concept also applies to Islam, and thus the people of Pakistan, Malaysia and Indonesia are definitely very devout and pious in their Islam day in and day out, as a result.....

     
    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Jamat-e-Islami, founded by Maulana Abu ala Maududi, had grown out of Deoband madrasa system. Jamat from the very beginning was inspired by Ikhwan ul Muslemin or Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt with the aim of bringing about an Islamic revolution and creating an Islamic state. Initially in undivided India Jamat was opposed to the concept of Pakistan. Later, however, when Jamat came to support Pakistan as the Islamic state for the Indian Muslims, Bengali nationalism was totally unacceptable to them....

    Tarek Fatah, Liberal Hypocrisy and the Limits of Muslim Tolerance
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    In absolute terms, the attack on Tarek Fatah must be condemned. There cannot be any context to what was pure and simple an act of heckling, intimidation and violence.  There is simply no excuse for this kind of behaviour. Certainly there are more civil ways to air one’s differences, but then who cares to keep a tab on their own instincts of hatred. I am appalled to hear excuses like Tarek Fatah shouldn’t have been there in the first place, that his mere presence ignited the mob because of his Islamophobic utterances. This is all nonsense...

    Deepening Signs of a Civil War in Islam: Massacres of Sufis in Pakistan In The Name Of Pure Islam Reveals a Worsening Global Crisis
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Today the question is: Is this pure Islam or true Islam, as Salafis claim? Not for the first, nor for the last time, to be sure, over hundred devotees of Sufi saint Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sindh have been killed in the name of what Salafi-Wahhabis consider true, pure Islam. Salafi-Wahhabis abhor Sufism because they believe that Sufi practices resemble pre-Islamic polytheistic Hindu traditions. Any Muslim who strays from the path of what Salafis consider true Islam is an apostate and deserves to be killed. The murderer has been brainwashed by ulema of his sect into believing that he can be assured of a place in heaven if he kills apostates and kuffars....

    Reflections on Kindness to Humanity in Qur’anic Message – Part 4
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    Other Qur’anic verses on this theme that were relevant to the phased unfolding of its message are excluded from this focused reflection, as read one after another - topic-wise, their linguistic nuances and lyrical character will give way to a repetitive effect and compromise the impact of the message…..
