    Islam and Human Rights

    Pakistan is already on the watch list of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), and now being blacklisted as a country where religious freedom is usurped will add more worries over its standing in the global community. The fact that the US has put Pakistan and not India on this blacklist clearly states that the diplomatic ties between Islamabad and Washington are not good. In any case, Pakistan being named as one of the worst countries for religious freedom and expression endorses the fact that despite paying a heavy cost for spreading extremism in society, the country is still not ready to give space to its minorities....

    قدرت وطاقت نہ ہونے کی وجہ سے اگر انسان انتقام نہ لے سکتا ہو تو یہ عفو (معاف کرنا) نہیں ہوگا بلکہ اسے بے بسی کا نام دیا جائے گا ۔عفو تو تب ہوگا  جب کوئی شخص قدرت وطاقت رکھنے کے باوجود کسی کو معاف کر دے ۔غصہ پر قابو پانے  کی حقیقت یہ ہے کہ کسی غصہ دلانے والی بات پر خاموش ہوجائے اور غیظ وغضب کے اظہار اور سزا دینے اور انتقام لینے کی قدرت کے باوجود صبر و سکون کے ساتھ رہے۔ نبی کریم (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) نے غصہ ضبط کرنے اور جوش غضب ٹھنڈا کرنے کے طریقوں کی ہدایت دی ہے۔

    We are told of the vastness of Paradise and Hell in the Quran. Keeping in mind the structure of Cosmic bodies as well as the stated size of the Angels and Allah’s Throne in the Quran, it can be inferred that Paradise and Hell are immense structures, much like the massive Black Hole Gargantua in Interstellar. According to the theory of relativity, time dilation occurs near vast structures due to their strong gravitational fields. Hence, the slowing down of time in Paradise and Hell relative to the passage of time on Earth may be seen as an example of Gravitational Time Dilation....

According to many, Rumi's view played a big role in the formation of his understanding of universal human rights. ....

    “We call upon the people of this county to bring their unmarried girls so they can fulfil their duty in sex jihad for their warrior brothers in the city and anyone who will not appear will feel the full force of the Shariah law upon him.” These men are not Norsemen raiding other lands, plundering and enslaving women. They’re not even those savage tribes of Caucasian steppes invading peaceful cities, and this is not even the fictitious story of the Game of Thrones, famous for showing disturbing and explicit scenes and events, but the similarity is striking. This is reminiscent of medieval men possessing the arms of the 21st century....

     Qur’anic repeated rejoinders on freeing slaves, it’s clear dictates to looking after them, to setting them free and to marrying them off, its specific ennobling vocabulary for slaves, bondmaids and captives, and its avoidance of any distinction between slaves and freeborn in all its social and civil laws, amply demonstrate that the Qur’an aimed at rooting out the institution of slavery. Accordingly Caliph Umar abolished slavery among the native inhabitants of Arabia. He also gave a clear instruction to his generals, on the strength of the Qur’an, not to turn the civilian population of conquered nations into slaves.....

We need to curb the influence of anyone who uses his or her position to advocate hatred and discrimination.

    Focus your energies more on the good that God enjoins on us avoiding what God has clearly forbidden. For all other things not specifically forbidden, use your reason and discretion and avoid excess or that which takes us away from what is good and pure and enjoined on us. Once we prioritize the good that is enjoined, we will automatically avoid all that which takes us away from it. Going into excessive detail about what is forbidden will make us avoid what is trivial ignoring what is important. It is far more important to do the right things than avoid minor mistakes through excessive caution.....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    A specialization course titled ‘Islam and Terrorism’ is being introduced by Jamia Razvaiya Manzar-e-Islam Madrasa of Bareily, UP for classical Islamic scholars. ...The madrasa has not given any details of its curriculum. Until that comes out, it is difficult to judge, how effective this course will turn out to be. Its efficacy will also depend on the orientation of teachers and their ability and indeed courage to go against established Islamic theology which generally favours political Islam and violence inherent in takfeerism and anti-apostasy laws of the so-called Islamic Sharia.

     Though considered Sufi-oriented, even Bareilvi Islamic theological literature is known to promote takfeerism, the practice of calling Muslims of other sects kafir, and violence against so-called apostates. Wahhabi-Salafi Takfeerism is one of the reasons behind terror against non-Salafi-Wahhabi sects like Sufi minded Sunni Muslims, Shias, Ahmadis, etc. The killer of Governor Salman Taseer of Pakistani Punjab, who killed him on the pretext of the latter having called Pakistan's Blasphemy laws black, belonged to and was influenced by a preacher of Bareilvi sect.

    Defeating Islamism and Jihadism: Evolve a New Theology of Peace, Pluralism and Gender justice, Sultan Shahin asks Muslim States at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    A War on Terror has been raging for 17 years now but we are no closer to defeating Islamist terror. Jihadism continues to attract Muslim youth. This is because the world has not paid enough attention to the ideology of Islamism and Jihadism.

    Mainstream Muslims have considered Islam a spiritual path to salvation, one of the many. Islam aims at reforming society for a peaceful, harmonious, pluralist existence. However, due to certain historical factors, the theology and jurisprudence of Islam that evolved in the 8th and 9th centuries (CE), present Islam as a political, totalitarian ideology of supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance and gender discrimination. It is this theology of violence, exclusivism and world-domination that is taught in madrasas and sustains Islamism. But despite the Islamist violence against peaceful Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the community is still not focussed on the need for evolving a counternarrative of Islam.

     It is imperative that Muslim countries that have signed the UN Charter look into the issue urgently and work towards developing a new theology of peace, pluralism and gender justice. While several countries like Morocco and now Saudi Arabia appear to be moving in this direction, the one country that has made a solid contribution is Turkey. In a decade-long exercise 100 Turkish scholars have managed to limit the number of authentic ahadith to just 1600, out of over 10,000, and provide each hadith with context and suitable interpretation. This book of authentic Hadith has been provided to all mosques in Turkey but I hope it is made available to the global Muslim community in their own languages as soon as possible.

    Allama Iqbal, a poet-philosopher of the South Asian sub-continent had called for the reconstruction of religious thought in Islam almost a hundred years ago. Let us at least start working on it now....
