    ISIS’ Millenarian Theory and its Refutation: Perspectives from Islam on Mahdaviat Doctrine and its Misinterpretations (Part 2)
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Note: A large part of the attraction of ISIS for Muslim youth is its millenarian thesis. It has convinced many that end of times is at hand, that they are engaged in the end-times battle, the Malhama. This has made the war they are engaged in imperative and urgent. Millenarianism or Islamic Eschatology, ilm-e-Aakhiruzzaman, was an inspiration behind some ideologues of al-Qaeda as well. But Osama bin Laden himself and most of his ideologues did not emphasize it much. As for ISIS, even in its previous avatar as Jamāʻat al-Tawḥīdwa-al-Jihād (The Organisation of Monotheism and Jihad) founded in 1999 by Jordanian radical Abu Musab al-Zarqawi which later pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda, several ideologues strongly believed in the apocalyptic worldview, the theory of this war being the final great war, al-Malhama al-Kubra, in which Islam will conquer the world.

    World domination has been a Muslim dream for ever. Books like Qeyamat ki Peshingoyian, or prophesies of the Prophet about the last days on earth have always been a bestseller in Muslim religious bookshops in every part of the world. No matter how irrational, Muslims of all denominations have for ever been waiting for a Mahdi or an Imam who will appear in the final days and set everything right. Indeed, this belief cuts across religious barriers. Believers in a number of religions are looking forward to the sudden appearance of a deliverer. This has made the task of ISIS easier. To help us understand this phenomenon better, New Age Islam is presenting a study by our regular columnist Mr. Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, a classical Islamic scholar who specialises in comparative religion. --- Editor

    How and Why Global Jihadists Have Turned an Islamic Occasion of Peace like Eid-ul-Fitr into a Time of Terror?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    While Muslims the world over are preparing for the Eid al-Fitr that marks the end of Ramadan, jihadists are hell-bent on making it ‘a month of mayhem for the infidels’. It is simple and plain. The spokesman for the ISIS Abu Mohammed al-Adnani had said in the very beginning of the Islamic month that the jihadists should “make it, with God’s permission, a month of calamity for infidels everywhere.”....

    A Muslim's response to the Orlando tragedy
    Saif Shahin

    National and regional Muslim groups in the US, such as the Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Colorado Muslim Society, have strongly condemned Mateen's action and even apologized for it. But Muslim response to this tragedy should not stop there. There needs to be a deeper rethinking about what Islam means, and how it is discussed, understood and practised in our homes, and outside.

    Orlando Killings: Muslims Need to Introspect
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The fact remains that homosexuality is condemned in almost all Semitic religions, but why is it that only Muslims react to it in a violent fashion. Does it have something to do with the way Islam is being taught in religious schools? … Are we doing something to curb the almost routine prejudice which pervades Muslim society about Jews or homosexuals? … And if at all, some Muslims are indeed saying and believing that Islam is a religion of peace, then what have they done to critically engage with those verses in the Quran which ask the believers to wage war in the name of Islam...

Almost the entire Islamic Eschatology is based on Hadees, and we don’t think by strengthening the institution of Hadees, that were collected up to 300 years after the demise of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), seeking to find answers in Hadees itself, we can fight the radical Islamic theology. But it is important to know and understand.  --- Editor

    What Stops Muslim Women’s Entry into Haji Ali Dargah’s Sanctorum: Islam or Male Chauvinism?
    By Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Freshly minted zealot Muslims who abhor women visiting Sufi shrines, historic tombs, mausoleums and graves of the Prophet’s companions (Sahaba) and other great spiritual figures should rethink their position in the light of well-established Islamic traditions. Equating women’s visit to holy shrines with the pre-Islamic pagan practice of moaning and wailing at graves is untenable….

    Syed Ahmed ‘Shaheed’ Rai Barelwi’s Tehrik-e-Jihad in India, Was It to Fight British Imperialism or Establish an Islamic State?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    … Syed Ahmad Rai Barelvi‘s jihad was solely aimed at fighting Punjab’s Sikh community, overthrowing non-Muslim rule and ultimately establishing an Islamic state in the country. His core belief was that Muslims in India could not achieve true freedom unless they launch an ‘aggressive, violent and armed struggle against non-Muslim forces’. He regarded non-Muslims as ‘monstrous evils’ who had corrupted the Islamic society, and therefore, launched a great jihad with thousands of his fervent followers to eliminate the ‘evil’…

    Islamic Society

    “For a poor Muslim child in a village, it may be his only path to literacy. For many orphans and the rural poor, madrasas provide essential social services: education and lodging for children who otherwise could well find themselves the victims of forced labour, sex trafficking, or other abuse… For parents mired in poverty and forced to work long hours, madrasas serve a vital role in ensuring their children are supervised, fed, and taught to read and write,”...

    Muslim Leaders Should Themselves Ban Triple Talaq, Polygamy, Introduce Other Gender-Friendly Reform And Bring the Practice of Islam Closer To Its Spirit
    Syeda S. Hameed

    For this middle path, the AIMPLB has a key role because it has many followers. They should step off the old track and project before the world the true spirit of Islam which is avowedly most gender-friendly and gender-sensitive regardless of its heinous distortion by groups like the Islamic State. They should say that we Muslims have never practised what the Quran and the Prophet taught us.....

It should therefore not come as a surprise that now, along with some reformists Muslims, she is part of the demand to throw open the inner sanctum of shrines for Muslim women. ...

    The Final Words on Triple Talaq: These Barbaric Acts Must Be Abolished and Right Rulings of Islam Should Be Reinstated

    I don't ever understand why Muslims across the nations are so adamant on something which is not part of the rulings of Islam; it is even completely against the teachings of the Holy Quran. There are only two things, either these muftis (jurists) don't know what the rulings of Holy Quran are or they don't want to implement the true teachings of Islam....

    Reviving a Sunnah? How ISIS Justifies Slavery
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    For ISIS, the taking of slaves is a reminder to those who bow before the ‘Taghut’ (idol) that Allah alone is worthy of worship. This is the lesson that is sent from Allah to those who do not follow His command and the Mujahidin (ISIS) are only the fulfilling the will of Allah. Slaves therefore become a reminder to the community to which they belong, that they went astray in terms of religious practice....
