    Muslims Need To Reclaim Their Spiritual Values -4  زوال بندۂ مؤمن کا بے زری سے نہیں
    Misbahul Huda, New Age Islam

    الغرض! اسلام نے دولت و ثروت اور مالی خوشحالی کا یہ دور بھی دیکھا ہے۔ جب مسلمانوں کو بدن ڈھکنے کے لئے پھٹے پرانے کپڑے اور پیٹ کی بھوک مٹانے کے لئے روٹی کے لقمے بمشکل ہی میسر ہوتے تھے اس وقت بھی مسلمان سرخرو تھا اور جب گلیوں میں ریشم کے ٹکڑے پڑے ہوتے تھے اور کوئی اسے اٹھانے والا نہیں تھا، اس دور میں بھی مسلمان سرخرو اور سربلند تھا۔ معلوم ہوا کہ مسلمان کا سرخرو اور سربلند ہونا یا ذلیل و رسوا ہونا غربت و تنگ دستی یا مال و اسباب کی فراونی اور کثرت پر موقوف نہیں ہے۔ اسی لئے اقبال نے کہا تھا کہ ‘‘زوال بندہ مؤمن کا بے زری سے نہیں’’۔ لہٰذا، ہمیں یہ جاننا ضروری ہے کہ امت مسلمہ کے زوال کے دواعی اور اسباب و علل کیا ہیں؟ آج ہم اس دنیا میں ذلیل کیوں ہوئے؟ آج ہم زمانے میں تماشا بن کر کیوں رہ گئے؟ اور ہمارے اوپر وہ ایام کیوں مسلط کئے گئے کہ ہمارے قوم کی بیٹیوں اور ماؤں پر سرِبازار بھوکے کتے چھوڑے گئے؟

    Accusations and Mistrust are Poisonous For the Peace of the Community  معاشرتی سکون کے لئے زہر قاتل

    Instant Triple Talaq Has No Legitimacy in Islam, Point Out Scholars and Social Activists at Event Organised By New Age Islam Foundation

    Arguing that there is no religious basis for the continued existence of triple Talaq amongst Muslims, Sultan Shahin stated that it was only during a specific context that the practice arose and then also, the practice was looked down upon as an exception rather than a rule. Thus the practice of triple had no basis in the Quran as it was patently discriminatory towards women, something which goes against the basic teachings of the Quran. Moreover, this issue is not just religious, but also one of human rights. India being a signatory to the UN charter of Human Rights cannot go against such a law and practice which militates against the concept of justice for women. Sultan Shahin also mentioned that Imam Abu Hanifa, whose followers form the majority of South Asian Muslims and are known as Hanafis, had termed the practice of triple Talaq as Haram and yet Muslims of this region are following it as if it is the practice ordained by Allah. ....

    The Madrasa Myth
    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    Madrasas across the world have suffered great loss of reputation in recent decades, thanks to a wave of extremism. They have been malicious projected as incubators of holy warriors or what has been derisorily called as ‘jihad machines’.  However, the negative stereotypes that we get to read in sections of the media do not present the true picture. The majority of madrasas actually present an opportunity, not a threat. For young village kids, they may be their only path to literacy. For parents mired in poverty, madrasas serve a vital role in ensuring their children are supervised, fed and taught. Madrasas fulfil a vital function by helping   develop a core of   leaders capable of leading the Muslim community in religious matters ...

    On The Religious Sentiment:  Look For a Better Moral High Ground than Empty Religiosity
    Babar Mirza

    But that is not that. While no hanging of a blasphemer accused through judicial process has yet been reported, a 2012 study by the Centre for Research and Security Studies estimated that 52 people were murdered extra judicially since 1990 for being implicated in blasphemy charges, including 25 Muslims, 15 Christians, five Ahmadis (a religious group whose very existence is considered blasphemous by mainstream Islamic sects), one Buddhist, and a Hindu. From the viewpoint of secular human rights discourse, blasphemy in general and against the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in particular is a freedom of speech issue. However, this viewpoint is too limited to deal with the theocracy in the garb of democracy that has ruled Pakistan since 1973....

A standard smug reaction is that all religions, notably Christianity, have gone through upheavals and emerged stronger. So will Islam; a “new” Islam fit for the 21st century will emerge from the debris of the old.

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam
    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.....
