    Muslims Need To Reclaim Their Spiritual Values -3  زوال بندۂ مؤمن کا بے زری سے نہیں
    Misbahul Huda, New Age Islam

    لیکن اقبال نے برسوں پہلے ہمیں سراغ حیات یہ دیا تھا کہ امت مسلمہ کی زندگی اس میں ہے کہ وہ اپنا روحانی رشتہ دوبارہ پتھروں کے اسی دور سے استوار کرے جب محمد عربی ﷺ کھجور کی ٹوٹی ہوئی چٹائی پر بیٹھ کر زندگی کا درس دیا کرتے تھے۔ امت اپنے افکار و خیالات کو اس دور زرین سے آشنا کرے جب آپ ﷺ ابو بکر و عمر، عثمان و علی، بلال حبشی اور مسجد نبوی کے باہر چبوترے پر بیٹھنے والے اصحاب ِصفہ کو زندگی کا سبق دیا کرتے تھے، جب مسجد کی دیواریں کچی تھیں لیکن لوگوں کے ایمان مضبوط تھے اور جس دور میں یتیم بچیوں کے سروں پر شفقت کا ہاتھ پھیرا جا رہا تھا۔

    Muslim Scholars Must Go Back To the Teachings of the Prophet and Rethink Issues Related To Religious Pluralism Afresh
    Waris Mazhari

    Islam aims at enabling people to rise above narrow boundaries of colour and race and work together for welfare and justice and help each other. The Treaty of Medina is a brilliant illustration of this objective. After the Prophet’s demise, Muslim history went through many ups and downs. Yet, even then people of other faiths often enjoyed considerable religious freedom, although not everywhere and at all times. ...

For whatever reason, the cancer of extremism is fast eating into the vitals of the whole of Muslim world.

    In countries like Somalia and Pakistan, the impoverished segment of the population depends upon religious seminaries or madrasas for the education of their children. In these seminaries, the children are educated in theological subjects and are heavily indoctrinated in the extremist version of religion. According to Karin von Hippel, an amount of $1 billion has annually been spent on such madrasas, out of which 75 percent of the contribution comes from abroad, mostly from Saudi Arabia....

    Radical Islam: The Geo Political Effects of its Errant Violent Ways
    Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain

    It is obvious that Islam is in ferment, uneasy with itself.  The discomfort comes from its spread beyond the shores of the original land where it took birth and shape. Faiths adapt to situations and to people, settling into comfort positions, especially if there is no ecclesiastical authority to force issues as per a single order. Islam’s spread was rapid and its adaptation to regional and local environment gave it acceptance. There was also confrontation, as there inevitably is when a faith attempts to expand its scope and ambit of reach....

     
    Islam and Spiritualism

    The act for which we perform Taubah and Istighfar is not necessarily a sin, or an act of disobedience to Allah; it also includes our shortcomings. As we realise Allah’s immense favours to us, all of our thankfulness and devotion clearly appears to be inadequate. As we realise the grandeur of Allah, Most High, our acts of worship and obedience clearly are seen to be insufficient. The higher a person is on the scale of Taqwa, piety and God consciousness, the greater is this sense of inadequacy....

    Louis was so desperate to recover his health that he ordered that the word ‘death’ never be uttered in his presence! He paid his personal physician an enormous salary of 10,000 gold crowns a month, something that in those times in Europe even a military officer would never earn after 40 years of service. Louis was willing to give away his entire treasury to anyone who could prolong his life by a single day….

He was a religious scholar who was well versed in Persian, Arabic, Urdu and English.

Later he became a Persian language teacher at Delhi College....

    Ramazan Wave of Terror: Islamic Scholars Must Join Ideological War Against Islamist Ideologues
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    What used to be Happy Eid has come this year blood-spattered. … Muslims believe any good deed done in this period is doubly rewarded. Apparently the terrorists consider their acts “good deeds” that will take them to heaven, with the Prophet himself and a horde of houris waiting to welcome them….

    The problem is the theology of consensus among ulrma of nearly all schools of thought. What is called Wahhabi-Salafi theology propounded by Ibn-e-Taimiya and Mohammad Ibn-e-Abdul Wahhab is not very different from the theology propounded by revered Indian theologians like Sheikh Sirhindi and Shah Waliullah, etc. It is this entire theology, a theology of political domination, that will have to be rethought. Islam requires a new theology, a theology of spiritualism, peace and pluralism.

    This requires vast, seminal effort. Except for a few progressive scholars, hardly any classical scholars seem willing to engage in this endeavour at the moment. They are willing to give anti-ISIS fatwas and say that Islam is a religion of peace, based on some initial Meccan verses of Quran. But they are not willing to engage with militant ideologues who say that Meccan verses advocating patience, perseverance, peace, co-existence, pluralism and respect for other religions have been abrogated and replaced by Medinan verses of war, xenophobia, intolerance of other religions. Maybe the present global wave of terror will induce Muslim governments and ulema to think that they have no option but to join the war within Islam.

But that too is no easy task especially for those who carry big dreams of changing the world as God’s female soldiers and yet lacking even basic skills of bhikshus to beg for sustenance.

    1.         Does Islam, as a great religion of peace, support terrorism and extremist activities?

    2.         Did our prophets, especially our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pubh), preach Islam by applying this type of brutal and ferocious method?

    3.         Is Jihad and terrorism the same thing in Islam?

    4.         Is terrorism a path to Heaven or Hell?

    5.         Can suicidal deaths be termed as a death of a martyr?

    6.         Is genocide legal in Islam?

    7.         Does Islam support killing children, women and old people?

    8.         Isn’t killing people while they are praying a crime?

    9.         Is attacking churches, temples, pagodas etc. legal in Islam?

    10.       Is it or is it not our duty to form social resistance against terrorists and extremists in the eyes of Islam?

    Global Terrorism Stems From Takfirism:  How Ulema Can Curb It By Just Issuing Fatwas Of Kufr Against The Terrorists?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    To begin with it, Indian ulema will have to evolve a robust and progressive interpretation of the Islamic scriptures and a well-reasoned and rational understanding of the Islamic doctrines such as jihad, hakimiyah (God’s rule over the earth), khilafah (Islamic caliphate) and ishtishhad (seeking martyrdom) and al-wala wal-bara (love and hatred for the sake of God). These are some of the theological terminologies and references from the Quran and hadith that the violent Jihadists misconstrue to justify their atrocities. Indian Muftis need to articulate a complete and coherent Islam-based refutation of the takfirist theology itself, rather than resorting to the takfirism against the terrorists. Only then they can help to rescue the new-age gullible Muslim youths from the creeping ...

    Why Muslim Ulema Should Confront Zakir Naik? How Does He Encourage Islamist Terrorism?
    Sultan Shahin, Founder Editor, New Age Islam

    Our focus should not be so much on Zakir Naik as on the question: why and how has he so easily succeeded in radicalising millions. Only a few of these millions may go on to join terrorism, but radicalisation of the millions is the real problem. … In my view the reason he has succeeded is that he is not saying anything new, or vastly different from what other clerics say. He is using the theology of consensus, the same theology that is taught in universities and madrasas. … That is why ulema cannot oppose him in a meaningful way. …

    You cannot say in the same breath that instructions in all verses of Quran and narrations of Hadees are applicable to us Muslims even today in the 21st century and that those who are following these 7th century war-time contextual instructions in Quran and Hadees to fight and kill the combatants as well as civilians are wrong. If ulema indeed want to save the community from further radicalisation, they just have to introspect on their own hypocrisy and help evolve a new and coherent theology of peace and pluralism based on the foundational, universal verses of Quran. We will have to come out and say clearly and repeatedly that contextual verses meant for war in the seventh century are no longer applicable to us today. They have merely historical value and tell us the story of what nearly insurmountable difficulties our prophet (pbuh) had to face to safeguard the nascent religion of Islam then. Islam is no longer an infant today. It ahs grown up and found space in 1.6 billion hearts. It can very well take care of itself. Muslims n longer need to fight and kill and put terror in the hearts of so-called kuffar and mushrikeen for Islam to survive as was the case in the 7th century (C.E).

    Why Muslims Should Condemn the All Indian Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) For Projecting Islam as a Regressive Religion

    Due to AIMPLB’s Deobandi leanings, the Shias and the Barelwis now have their own personal law boards. And because of the entrenched misogyny of the AIMPLB, Muslim women are now represented by another board. This largely self-appointed leaders whose knowledge of Islam is deeply suspect, have taken upon themselves to defend the Muslim community from the onslaught of the state. In the process, they have ended up doing irreparable damage to the Muslim community. All those who actually think that AIMPLB is the representative body of Indian Muslims must be thinking Islam is a mediaeval misogynist religion and that Muslims are the most regressive community in the country....

    The Muslims We Do Not See
    Omair Ahmad

    If you search for images of Indian Muslims in any database, you will find the vast majority to be those of clerics in long beards, women in Burqas, and people in skullcaps at prayer. But this is not how the vast majority spends its life — at home or at work. Most of them — to the disappointment of the clerics — rarely spend their time at prayer, but if you were to go by the images that are most commonly found, you would think that is all that any Muslim is up to, all the time.....

    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    “The Qur'an, like the Old and the New Testaments, recognizes and regulates the practice of the institution of slavery. The Qur'anic legislation subsequently confirmed and elaborated in the Shariat Law, brought two major changes to ancient slavery with far-reaching effects. One was the presumption of freedom; the other, the ban on the enslavement of free persons except in strictly defined circumstances. The Arabs practiced a form of slavery, similar to that which existed in other parts of the ancient world. The Quran urges kindness to the slave (4:36; 9:60; 24:58) and recommends liberation of slaves by purchase or manumission….

    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.....
