    Muslim clerics are required to clarify the universal message of Islam and the Prophetic models which encourage peaceful coexistence with all communities. They are required to do so in the best way both in words and actions, in order to curb the rising hatred and disorder [Fasad] in the land. Based on the established major maxims of Islamic jurisprudence supported by the Quran and Sunnah, as they learn in their Islamic seminaries, they should step to the fore and help the multi-cultural society live with positive mindset....

    Historically, Islam was never imposed on the natives of captured or conquered territories; they were free to continue practising their own religion and abide by their own religious laws.

    The Institution of Zakat in Islam and its Contemporary Applications
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The institution of Zakat in Islam is aimed to bring comfort to the poor who need financial assistance. The idea behind the obligation of Zakat is that the enormous wealth that one possesses is not one's own. The creator of the world is the real Owner of all the wealth we think we possess. The rich are only His trustees. Therefore, they must earn and spend the wealth as per His will. “O believers! Spend of the good things which you have earned, and of that which We have produced from the earth for you, and do not aim at that which is bad to spend from it” (Quran: 2:267)….

    Finally, the fact that India’s sizeable Muslim population has not yet reacted with any vigour to the ideological inducements offered by the IS — thanks probably to our democratic system — must not be taken for granted. The IS is reportedly already knocking on the doors in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. India, therefore, needs to urgently look at pro-active and out-of-the- box solutions that will help them integrate and achieve Muslim aspirations through the democratic system. One measure that could be given serious consideration is Singaporean housing system — wherein the law there requires each locality and housing community to have specific quotas for every section and ethnicity of the population. This enhances inclusiveness among all sections of society.....

    Following the ban on ISIS in India, Urdu media has shown a slight change in its reporting style, though not in its editorial policy,  but the Sunni ulema have continued to maintain a mysterious silence over ISIS claim to represent Islam, with Khalifa  Baghdadi presenting Islam as a religion of permanent war, continuous violence and strife. Even the Baghdadi claim that Islam has not been a religion peace, even for a day, did not bring out any response from Indian Muslim ulema or Urdu media. ....

    The following steps and initiatives can be taken by the government if it seriously wants to contain the growing sectarian and radical inclination among the Muslim youth.

    1. A joint statement of prominent Indian ulema from all Sunni sects should be acquired, condemning the ideology and violent theology of terrorist organisations like ISIS, Taliban, Boko Haram, etc by name. General statements criticising extremism have not worked. Ulema will have to be specific.

    If in these classical families, the man displays the guts to voice his choice, his poor wife is forever labelled a ‘fast, cunning, no-good who netted the son hence ruining him for life’. On the other hand, if the girl happens to voice her choice, she is forever shunned by all dear and near, and even the not so near and dear, as a ‘Paraya’ (stranger) whose bad morals can influence and corrupt a good girl living a mile away. Considering that this stumbling road block in the marriage scene is in a majority of families, there is a perfect way to fast forward the situation from the 15th to the 21st century; single events and speed dating.....

    Wahhabism, which is derived from the preaching of Muhammad Ibn Abd al-Wahhab, an 18th century religious scholar, denounced as un-Islamic many of the popular beliefs and practices prevalent among the Arabs those days. Wahhab rejected Muslims worshipping the dead or having any saints and making pilgrimages to tombs or special mosques. He asked his followers to return to the “fundamentals” of Islam, condemned practices of Shia, Sufi and other Muslims as invalid interpretations of the religion, and emphasised that his version of Islam alone had validity. The modern-day Islamic State uses Wahhabi ideals to explain its barbarism.....

    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....
