    There Can Be No Political Reform and Democracy in Any Arab Country without Accepting That Political Islam Is a Part of It
    Jamal Khashoggi

    Islamists today participate in the parliaments of various Arab countries such as Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain, Tunisia and Morocco. This has led to the emergence of Islamic democracy, such as the Ennahda movement in Tunisia, and the maturing of democratic transformation in the other countries. The coup in Egypt led to the loss of a precious opportunity for Egypt and the entire Arab world. If the democratic process had continued there, the Muslim Brotherhood’s political practices could have matured and become more inclusive, and the unimaginable peaceful rotation of power could have become a reality and a precedent to be followed....

Two years ago when I watched a test match there were four Muslims in the English cricket team. I have met doctors, teachers, civil servants, and entrepreneurs from the sub continent, both Hindus and Muslims, thriving. The Anglican Church never came in their way. In India’s circumstances in 1947, a Hindu India may have been better, than the one cloaked in a hollow and bogus secularism where the police watch on as one Muslim (or Dalit) after another is lynched, some to the accompaniment of expert photography....

    Qurbani Has Become More Like a Craze, a Fashionable Thing, Rather Than a Religious Ritual
    Rahad Abir

    Why isn’t it possible, I wonder, to spend less money on Qurbani and do something to alleviate poverty? It is said that the regular prayer is the command of Allah, which is the first pillar of Islam. Those who passionately sacrifice animals to the name of Allah, what fraction of them actually prays five times?...

Khan has the potential to achieve Iqbal and Jinnah’s Pakistan and represents the Ummah (the global community of Muslims) positively to humanity at large....

    The UN Reports That the Assault on the Rohingyas Amounted To Genocide

    There have been many investigations from a plethora of respected human-rights organisations (Amnesty International, Fortify Rights) about what happened in Rakhine state last year. But this UN report goes further than most. For a start, it declares that the “crimes in Rakhine state, and the manner in which they were perpetrated, are similar in nature, gravity and scope to those that have allowed genocidal intent to be established in other contexts.”...

    UN Report on Rohingya Genocide:  Nothing Destroys Human Beings More Than Ethnic and Religious Nationalism
    Ishtiaq Ahmed

    Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, who became a heroine to all of us when she resisted military dictatorship, has now become the biggest disappointment in recent history. Her apathy and indifference towards the suffering of the Rohingyas is appalling. It seems she is a stone-hearted nationalist who wants to stay in power at all costs. Nothing destroys human beings more than ethnic and religious nationalism, and in Myanmar both coincide to create a diabolical military dictatorship which continues, with the façade of a civilian government head by Aung San Suu Kyi....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam

    One of the most pressing issues in the eyes of the early Muslims was the protection of Qur’an’s sanctity. Numerous times throughout the Qur’an and sayings of the Prophet (peace be upon him), the Muslims are reminded that the Jews and Christians corrupted their texts over time, which now cannot be taken as authentic. As a result, early Muslims developed an isnad system for ensuring that the Qur’an and Hadith would not be subject to change by human error, either intentional or unintentional....

    Islamic Ideology

    While Wahhabism has adherents around the world, many Muslims detest it, because it considers Shiites and followers of other non-Sunni sects — not to mention Christians and Jews — to be infidels. Others blame Saudi Arabia’s promotion of Wahhabism abroad for giving theological fuel to groups like Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, an accusation Saudi officials reject. “It is important for Saudis who are living now, in this century, to know that the state came from a specific place that has been preserved and that it was built on an idea, a true, correct and tolerant ideology that respected others,” said Abdullah Arrakban of the High Commission for the Development of Riyadh that oversees the project....

    Unknown to the world is that Yemenis are being killed just because they don't share the ideology. For the past three months, Saudi Arabia has been using cluster bombs to kill Zaydi Muslims. Under international law any military aggression against another country and its people can never be justified. But of course the world's media and the private club of world leaders have kept silent on such tragedies. Is it because Saudi Arabia has the money, powerful friends and oil that it does not have to abide by international laws? The rulers of Saudi Arabia got away with 9/11 where seven hijackers were from Saudi Arabia….

    Islamic Ideology

    It is a ritual on the part of Muslims to finish reading or listening to the entire Quran during this month regardless of their level of understanding.  Sometime, even those who recite the Quran in their melodious voice do not understand what they are reciting. The guidance comes when we know what the guidance is and what it is all about. So we need to focus on the process of understanding the Quran in whatever language we speak or understand in addition to our readings in Arabic language….

    Almost every system of the world has gone through a slow but steady evolutionary process, where it has been continuously refined with the passage of time.

    When It Comes to Sex Crimes in Pakistan, Is It Better to Remain Silent?
    Hashim Bukhari

    Until social views regarding an issue do not change, it is impossible to have law enforcing institutions combating the problem. Just like honour killings are tolerated by law enforcement institutions because they are tolerated by society, the cover up of sex crimes and the lack of legal help available to victims are part of the same story. A lot of steps need to be taken in a direction that Pakistan is not even yet pointing its nose towards, to install the machinery required for the prevention and management of sex crimes, which involves allowing the victims access to justice and their rehabilitation....

From the second half of the 18th century to the late 19th century, the followers of Wahhabism spread their ideology among tribes in the peninsula and neighboring regions, in Iraq and the Gulf, imposing their ideology forcefully if necessary....
