    Islam Has No Role to Play in Politics: A Review of Ali ‘Abd Al-Raziq's Revolutionary Essay on Islam and the Foundations of Political Power
    Douglas Garrison

    Religion, and Islam in particular, appear to be mainstays in discussions about politics in the Middle East. But while readers may be quite familiar with contemporary debates about the role of religion in Mideast politics, this phenomenon is far from a recent one. One of the seminal texts on the topic—one that generated a firestorm of criticism and debate—was published in 1925 by an Egyptian Islamic scholar and Al-Azhar faculty member, Ali ‘Abd al-Raziq.

    Islamic Ideology

    The Khawarij are those who were described by the Prophet ﷺ as being: 'the worst of mankind and beasts'1 and 'dogs of Hellfire.'2 We saw how their defining traits were: (i) rebellion (Khuruj) against legitimate state rule; (ii) declaring Muslims to be apostates (Takfir) for sins or opinions that do not warrant apostasy and; (iii) shedding peoples' blood and causing chaos and terror throughout the land (Fasad fi'l-Ard). Such have tended to be this heinous group's timeless traits……

    Islam and Spiritualism

    “…I believe that religion is a form of gaining power and influence. It is an easy way to control masses hence anybody who seems to have a convincing message can lead a few needy souls astray. It is why we have all these opposing sects and ideologies within even one religion...someone always profits from it. I’m not sure if this will ever change though...it is an age old problem...”

    Uniform Civil Code: A Relook at the Past Happenings
    V.M. Khaleelur Rahman for New Age Islam

    Unless we discuss and debate things which confront us, we cannot understand and solve them. Hence this humble attempt to make sure that in matters of faith which are of course one’s personal affairs, there should be no interference from any quarter at all. This is a ‘since qua non’ for unity and integrity of our country. Let our ancient country India remain a garden of different flowers and spread its message of unity in diversity and composite cultural heritage without any religious fanaticism so that all people, whatever their religion or faith, may live in peace and harmony. Our aim should be to make our country materially prosperous and spiritually “a shining symbol or model of peace”. .....

    Islamic Ideology

    As ISIS continues its murder and violence across the provinces it controls and seeks to control, and as it continues to plague the conscience of the great majority of Muslims around the world, what's worth recalling is that we've seen this before in history with the sect called the Khawarij (anglicized to Kharijites). So before tackling ISIS, let's look at their forerunners; the Kharajites, to whom their pedigree can be traced……

    Lethal Remnants: Islamic extremists of Bangladesh have been blamed for killings of bloggers
    S. Binodkumar Singh

    At least four Bangladeshi bloggers have been hacked to death by apparent Islamic extremists this year alone, and a total of five of Bangladesh's seven victims of unsolved murders over the last decade are bloggers who criticized religious extremism. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the nominally secular ruling Awami League party have done little to speak out for justice in these crimes, allowing political interests to trump rule of law.

    Are The Ahadith More Than Just Unreliable Hearsay?
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The damage that the Ahadith do is multi fold. Since the Ahadith are full of contradictions and sometimes utter nonsense, a Muslim learns early that he should not expect his religion to either be logical or make sense. The environment is created for domination by the Sheikh ul Hadiths! A religion of reason has been reduced to a cult of nonsensical mumbo jumbo. The Ahadith are used as Furqan or criterion to abrogate verses of the Quran – the ultimate blasphemy! …..

    Islamic Fatalism: Lifting the Shroud

    The man of God whose will is perfectly attuned to the Will of God, becomes the maker of history and destiny: (Bang-e Dara) With his hand he can work miracles, for Iqbal believes that "man is really free only in God, the source of his freedom," and can see the source of divine law within the depths of his being, he is troubled by doubt. It is a dynamic conception of time which operates organically that gives the real sense of time – time as a whole and continuous process which never lasted in particular period –it actually ‘lives’ in past, present and future, and this is why Qadar or in Iqbal’s usage, Taqdeer, could not be regarded as a fix and unchangeable matter. It is in fact a continuous process. ....

    Teaching Islam In The Age Of ISIS
    Amina Steinfels

    I am not an expert on ISIS or any of the warring parties that have made a battleground of Syria, Iraq, Libya, and Yemen. I do not study militancy and insurgency, or the politics, culture, and history of the Middle East. Nor am I an expert on the French satirical tradition, the alienation and radicalization of minority youth in France, or the politics of free speech. The focus of my scholarship is a world away from any of this: most recently Sufism (Islamic mysticism) in medieval South Asia.

    Islamic Society

    The so-called 'Islamic State' is inspired by an extreme form of Wahhabism, the official interpretation of Islam in the Saudi kingdom. Wahhabis prohibit praying at shrines or maintenance of historic sites as a purported form of idol-worship. Wahhabi vandalism of historical sites began in the early 19th century C.E. when Wahhabi raiders attacked the Shia holy sites at Karbala and Najaf in Iraq. During the 19th century, and following the definitive Wahhabi-Saudi takeover of Mecca and Medina in 1924-25, Wahhabi fanatics were granted power over the Holy Cities. They proceeded to destroy the Islamic cemeteries of Jannat al-Baqi in Medina and Jannat al-Mu'alla in Mecca. In both, the family and companions of Prophet Muhammad were buried. The Wahhabis uprooted the shrines and gravestones there, leaving spaces with unmarked stones. In recent times, extreme Wahhabi clerics in Saudi Arabia have called for the removal or closure of monuments associated traditionally with Prophet Muhammad.

    People Generally Live In an Anachronistic Mindset

    People generally live in an anachronistic mindset. Although the Age of War is over, some people still continue to advocate for, and engage in, war. In The Age of Peace, I have proved that such changes have been brought about in the present age that war has now become totally futile. Today, we can achieve more successfully through peace what people in previous ages could not have attained by resorting to war....

    The Role Models in the Quran
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The faith is helped and strengthened by the five (including the sub categories) categoriesof people discussed on whom is Allah’s Grace. These are the role models to emulate for success in this life and in the Hereafter. Seeking to become Maqtul fi Sabilillah is neither part of any prayer in the Quran or Dua of our Prophet nor a worthwhile goal. The chances of being merely slain in an unjust fight can make us lose both this world and the Hereafter. The worthy goals of becoming one among the Siddiqin or the Shuhuda or the Salihin requires living a long life and doing enough good deeds to qualify for being admitted to these exalted ranks. There is no short cut to Heaven. All temptations and short cuts lead only to Hell……

    It Is Time to Clearly Understand the Pristine Message of the Qur’an Rather Than Reading It with the Eye of Its Medieval Era Jurists, Scholars and Ideologues

    It is time to clearly understand the pristine message of the Qur’an rather than reading it with the eye of its medieval era jurists, scholars and ideologues. There is an urgent need to understand the core message of Islam that remains buried under layers of medieval interpretation. The  world is now too complex, too interconnected, too globalised to be divided into ‘black’ and ‘white’: ’the abode of Islam’ and ‘the abode of unbelief’. The overall message is: break the monolith wherever it comes from. The   fundamentalists must realize that their blind literalism could lead them to follow the letter of the law, but betray the intents of foundational texts……

    Justice: The Cornerstone of Islam

    Justice: The Cornerstone of Islam
    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    Justice, in the Islamic paradigm, has a very broad connotation and even our individual actions vis a vis other individuals and the society at large are amenable to the rules of justice. Those who enquire about the basics of Islam are usually told about the “Five Pillars” of the religion. These relate to faith and to practice, but at a deeper level it might be said that there are two great pillars which support the whole edifice. These are Peace and Justice. Although God in Himself is beyond comprehension or analysis, the Qur’an gives us hints as to His true nature through what are sometimes called “the 99 names” and one of these is al-ªAdl, “the Just”. Another of these names is al-Muqsiö, “the Dispenser of Justice” or “He who gives to each thing its due”….
