    مسلم میریج ایکٹ کا مطلب ہے۔ فرد کے نکاح و طلاق کے اختیار سلوک کر کے عدالت کو سونپنا ۔مطلب دیگر برادران وطن کی طرح ایک مسلمان کو بھی کسی ناچاقی کے وجہ سے طلاق لینے کے لئے سالہاسال عدالتوں کے چکر کاٹنے اور مقدمے بازی میں اپنی جان و مال صرف کر کے بھی بے مراد اور در ماندہ ہوتے رہنا ہوگا۔ جو پریشانی کے ساتھ ساتھ غیر شرعی عمل ہے۔

    اگر احکام شرعیہ کے لیے صرف حدیث کا صحیح ہونا ہی کافی ہوتا ۔ تو صحابہ میں اختلاف کیوں ہوتا، ان کے حق میں تو تمام روایات صحیح سے بھی بڑھ کر قطعی یعنی قرآن کے ہم پلہ تھیں۔ انہوں نے احادیث کواپنے کانوں سے جناب رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کو ارشاد فرماتے ہوئے سنا تھا، صحابہ میں سب سے زیادہ حدیث روایت کرنے والے حضرت ابو ہریرہ رضی اللہ عنہ ہیں، مگر فتاوی حضرت عمر و حضرت علی رضی اللہ عنہما وغیرہ کے چلتے تھے ۔ وجہ اس کی یہی ہے کہ احکام شرعیہ کے لیے صرف نصوص کافی نہیں ، بلکہ ا س کے لیے ’’ نفقہ‘‘ اور دینی سمجھ کا ہونا بھی ضروری ہے۔

    दीन सही समझ रखने वाले विद्वानों चाहे किसी विचारधारा से संबंध रखते हैं, कभी यह काम नहीं कर सकते, लेकिन ऐसा उनकी मस्जिदों में होता है, जहां का प्रबंधन इल्मे दीन से अपरिचित सज्जनों के हाथ में है। कभी-कभी यह सज्जनों पूरी नेकनीयत से यह काम करते हैं, वे उसे धर्म प्रचार का एक स्रोत समझते और उसे दीन सेवा बताते हैं, लेकिन हमारे समाज में यह नियम भी बहुत गलत प्रसिद्ध हो गया है, कि इरादा अच्छा कोई से कोई गलत काम भी जायज़ और सही हो जाता है, घटना है कि किसी काम सही होने के लिए केवल नेकनीयत ही प्रति नहीं, उसका तरीका भी सही होना चाहिए, और लाउडस्पीकर ऐसा क्रूर प्रयोग न केवल कि निमंत्रण और प्रचार के बुनियादी सिद्धांतों के खिलाफ है, बल्कि इसके उल्टे नतायज सामने आते हैं।

    Triple Talaq, an Extra-Quranic Practice, Has No Place in the Quran
    Nizam Pasha

    The Sura' in the Quran dedicated to the subject of divorce which is titled "Talaq" prescribes the following procedure for divorce: a period of Iddat of three months (or in case of pregnancy, the duration of pregnancy) has to be provided to the wife after divorce is pronounced during which it is prohibited to turn her out of the house. In fact, it is recommended that the woman should also not leave of her own accord as this reduces the possibility of reconciliation. Further, divorce can be pronounced only during prescribed periods, which must not be during the wife's menstrual cycle....

    Living the Truth Is A Tough Road, but Living in Delusion Is the Path of Cowards
    Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

    One inevitable outcome of the phenomenal violence we all suffer as children is that most of us live in a state of delusion throughout our lives. This makes it extraordinarily difficult for accurate information, including vital information about the endangered state of our world and how to respond appropriately, to penetrate the typical human mind. 'Phenomenal violence?' you might ask. 'All of us?' you wonder. Yes, although, tragically, most of this violence goes unrecognised because it is not usually identified as such....

    But they won’t, because blasphemy laws don’t exist to protect God: they exist to protect the fragile egos of corrupt clerics.

But Governor Ahok’s conviction, along with the ongoing violent persecution of Indonesia’s Ahmadi Muslims, threatens this thriving democracy’s future.....

    On Triple Talaq, Court Must Say: Religious Practice Cannot Trump Modern Constitutional Morality

     This is the “essential practices” test of the court. In order to ascertain whether something deserves protection under religious liberty clauses, courts may have to inquire whether the practice is in fact religious. But our courts have gone further. Rather than subjecting religious practices to the test of constitutionality, they have given lexical priority to the religious practice. One line of argument in the triple Talaq case suggests that the only issue in this case is whether the practice is genuinely Islamic. If it is, uphold; if not, abolish it…..

    The Misrepresentation of the Quran through Mistranslation
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The major source of mistranslation of the Quran is the mistranslation by every translator of the Quran of the word “Kafaru” as “disbeliever”. A disbeliever is understood as “those who are not followers of Prophet Muhammad” although even this meaning of disbeliever is incorrect. The Quran does not use the word Kafaru in the sense of “disbeliever” even in a single verse! As a matter of fact, the Quran makes it unmistakably clear that Kafaru means not a disbeliever but one of the following:...

    Unholy-ness Of the Language of Holy Scripture
    Rashid Samnakay, New Age Islam

    Most Holy Scriptures are believed by their followers to be the verbatim utterances of the Supreme Being- the God; annunciating ‘Truth’ by dictating it to His messengers. For Muslims, that being Allah, and the scripture Quran is the Kalaamullah- Logos, the word of God, and generally contended as being holy. However some verses of the Book itself, as understood from translations and comments, does not support this contention....

    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Without the moral precepts we would have remained savages. If human thinking could produce moral precepts, philosophy would have been rich in moral precepts. Without moral precepts, we would have not reached our present state and without these we cannot maintain it either. If human thinking has failed to produce moral precepts, the claim of religions that have given us these precepts as being of divine origin is a very strong claim indeed. The Atheists ‘claim that everything is a result of the evolutionary process, is a weak one and not supported by facts...

    Is a Dalit Muslim Unity Possible?

    Thus in all probability, this alliance is going to be a political alliance of convenience. It would have been much better if this alliance would also become a social alliance between Dalits and Muslims. But for that to happen, Muslims have to engage with the entrenched caste practices and ideas within their own community. It is all very well to say that Islam does not recognise caste, but anyone who is familiar with Muslim society would say that Muslims are as casteist as the Hindu society.....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam

    If the Islamic medieval rationalism that acknowledged the universality of knowledge keeps on being proclaimed an apostasy, and if authenticity is limited down to a polarisation of the self and otherness, then Muslims of the 21st century will keep on being unsuccessful in embarking on modernity. That is why the recovery of reason is imperative for the Muslim mind to be successful.....

    This hadith talks about Taghayyur-E Munkar, which means rectifying or remedying a wrong. The Arabic word Taghayyur means ‘replacement’. Hence, in the above hadith, the word Taghayyur means replacing a condition of evil or wrong with a condition that is not evil or wrong. In other words, this hadith ordains the reforming of a certain condition, not engaging in conflict and causing destruction....

    Islamic Scholars Must Open the Gates of Ijtihad; Reflect Creatively On Islamic Teachings and Their Applications, Particularly Islamic Political Theology
    Waris Mazhari

    In part, the intellectual crisis of present-day Muslims can be traced to the suppression of the movement of Islamic rationalism by the traditionalist, orthodox Ulema in the early centuries of Islam. In the conflict between reason (Aql) and text (Nass), the suppression of reason played a major role in the ensuing intellectual stagnation of Muslims. A second factor for this intellectual crisis of Muslims was the supposed closing of the ‘doors’ of Ijtihad’, creative reflection on and application of Islamic teachings in new contexts...

    Beyond the Moderate and Radical in Indian Islam

     The regime of reform became common to both the Barelvis and the Deobandis, following the model of early Islam which was adopted by them both.

    Speaking historically, belief without a good rational basis or evidence may have been a necessity in the past, but today, this is neither necessary nor a good thing. Today blind belief is more harmful than blind rejection but acceptance on a rational basis is not only good but indispensable to leading a truly “moral” life with values that are transcendental and not merely utilitarian.  Religion gave us concepts and moral principles that were far beyond the capacity of human minds to fully comprehend their utility and role in leap frogging their society on the scale of civilization.....

    The Quran, like any other text (religious as well as other) can be interpreted in diverse, often mutually-contradictory, ways. If radical Islamists champion a violence-driven, politics-centric interpretation of their faith, many Muslim reformists articulate diametrically different interpretations of Islam, which are rooted in a quest for peace. What people read into a text depends heavily on their cultural and ideological baggage....

    God Is Not a Khomeini: The Islam of Identity Should Yield To the Islam of Truth
    Shajahan Madampat

    I believe that the Islam of identity should yield to the Islam of truth. The latter can coexist with other truths. The former, however, is, by its very nature, belligerent and bellicose. It is the Islam of war, not the Islam of peace. Two identities would fight each other, while two truths would cooperate.”

    Islam, as an inclusive faith and as a humane culture, is facing existential threats not from its arch rivals but from its ardent followers. The solution therefore is to seek endogenous remedies because, on the one hand, imagining a future beyond faith is too utopian a dream to achieve and, on the other, like other traditions, the history and textual corpus of Islam could offer ample resources to self-rejuvenate and fight the internal decay.....
