    Islamic Society

    Given the high level of pride Muslims have for the Golden Age, it is surprising how little examination or even awareness Muslims give to this early decline. This decline coincided with fundamental changes in religious doctrines reflected in the decline of a rationalist school of thought (the Muatazilites) and the rise of a traditionalist one (the Ashaarites) whose influence continues to dominate till this day. A fact that eludes most Muslims today is that the majority of the star scientists and thinkers of the Golden Age were followers of the rationalist school of thought.....

    Orwell Casts His Shadow on Istanbul’s Culture Scene
    Nazlan Ertan

    The exhibition does not seek to duplicate Orwell’s concept of doublethink, where the state denies the individual the right to his own thoughts. On the contrary, Moscow conceptualists such as Pavel Pepperstein, who have inspired this exhibition, flip the concept of doublethink back to the state. For them, doublethink is a form of resistance to what the state imposes and a beginning where the artists can freely play with text and image. “You probably think of doublethink as a negative concept. We in Russia think of it as just the beginning,”....

    Tushar Ranjan Mohanty

    The complex, multilayered, seemingly never-ending security crisis in Balochistan appears more dangerous with the entry of Daesh onto the scene. Balochistan has been under attack by separatists, insurgents, and Islamist terrorists for over a decade and the situation can only worsen with Daesh's entry. The Government, however, continues to deny Daesh's existence in the Province and, most recently, on June 13, 2017...

    Why General Rawat and Major Gogoi are Wrong about Kashmir
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    While the section of the media which supported major Gogoi was doing so for obvious ideological reasons having thrown to the wind the cautious journalistic ideal of speaking truth to power, those who were mildly critical of major Gogoi’s action were the more interesting of the two. This later section of the media portrayed the entire incident as an exception rather than a rule and that in doing so this major had erred and deviated from the norm followed by the Indian army. ...

    Islam and Spiritualism

These areas comprise the human consciousness. The mannerism of the human being is a culmination of these three things....

    Theism Vs Atheism
    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?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    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.....

    Enjoining Good and Forbidding Wrong
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

    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
    Arshad Alam, New Age 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. The problem of the loss of pluralism starts from there: till that model of early Islam heavily infused with Arab cultural traditions gets questioned, there is no point pitting moderate Barelvis against the radical Deobandis....

    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    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.....

    Treatment of Enemies in Islam, Christianity and Judaism—A Common Tendency towards Repelling Enmity

On A good human being is identified as kind even towards his enemies. He does not deprive them of the rights that they deserve as his human counterparts. He does not punish his enemies any more than would be just, but if possible tries to forgive them.

    Islam brought to women their dignity, freedom, justice and equality. It infused in them a sense of self confidence and a seeking sprite of truth and hunger for knowledge .That is why in early Islam a woman is seen participating in all the vibrant social activates, say, learning knowledge, propagating it even teaching men for that matter, participating even in war zone and political arena. In prophetic era Hazrat Ayesha as first lady of Islam not only was a great Aalima having deep knowledge of Quran and Hadith, but was enjoying an expertise in areas of Arabic poetry, medicine teaching and jurisprudence….

    This is a trying time for all the Sufi practitioners and shrine-visitors in India and Pakistan. First time in the history, Ajmer Sharif--the biggest Sufi shrine in India--is being used in a large political campaign of the Jami'at Ulema-e-Hind (JUH), whose key members and religio-politicians declare Sufism "un-Islamic", yet chose the largest Sufi shrine to organise their 33th annual conference, clearly in an attempt to woo the mainstream Sufi-oriented Muslims in India….
