    Islamic Ideology

    For Islam is an ideology that stands apart from its adherents in the same way that capitalism is a social system which stands apart from those who commit crimes it its name. Islam is a pro- market religion with a pro-capitalism ideology. The principles and spirit of capitalism took root in Islamic civilization long before the seeds were even planted in Europe. Long before there was Adam Smith there was the father of modern economics, Ibn Khaldun. And long before there was John Locke there was Ibn Tufyl, who is said to have heralded in the scientific revolution....

    Jihad is the form of war that Muslims use to strive or struggle against bad habits.

    اس بڑھتی ہوئی اسلامزم کی  انتہا پرستی کے حوالے سے سرد مہری اس حد تک بڑھ چکی ہے کہ کچھ اعلی تعلیم یافتہ مسلم اب یہ کہتے ہوئے دکھائی دے رہے ہیں کہ، ‘‘کیا ہوا اگر ایک سال کے اندر 86 ممالک سے تیس ہزار مسلمانوں نے اسلامی ریاست میں شمولیت اختیار کی؟ 1.7 بلین لوگوں کی برادری میں ان کی شرح کتنی ہے؟! اس قدر چھوٹی اور محدود تعداد کو بڑھتی ہوئی انتہاپسندی کے ثبوت کے طور پر کیسے پیش کیا جا سکتا ہے؟’’۔ عقل حیران ہے  کہ ایسے مفکرین اور اہل علم کو کیسے جواب دیا جائے۔ حقیقت یہ ہے کہ اگر ایک مسلمان کو یہ لگتا ہے کہ ایک انسانی بم کی شکل میں مسجد کے اندر جانے اور خود کو اور دوسرے مسلمانوں کو دوران نماز دھماکے سے اڑا دینے پر خدائی انعام حاصل ہوگا ، تو امت کے لیے یہ ضرور لمحہ فکریہ ہے  کہ ہمارے مذہب میں ایسا کیا ہے جس کی آڑ میں  دھشت گرد تنظیمیں اس طرح کے گھنونے جرائم کا ارتکاب کرنے کے لیے تیار ہو جاتے ہیں، کیا ایسا کرکے وہ جنت میں داخل ہو جائیں گے ۔امت کے لیے یہ یقینا غور کا مقام ہے ۔ امت کو سوچنا چاہیے  کہ تشدد  میں نمایاں اضافہ ہوتا جا رہا ہے ، حتی کہ دہشت گردانہ جرائم  کے سینکڑوں واقعات کے باوجود بھی ہم بے حسی کی زندگی گزار رہے ہیں، ہر روز دنیا کے کسی نہ کسی حصہ سے  دہشت گردی کے واقعہ کی خبر ملتی ہے لیکن ہمیں اس کی فکر کہاں ، ہمیں تو بے حس ہی بنے رہنا ہے !!

    Religion Requires the Humbleness to Adapt
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Over a period, through practice under compulsion, man learned the great benefits of following the religion and became a willing follower.  Allah has civilized mankind through progressive revelations and finally revealed the Quran which contains the complete and perfected religion to Muhammad (pbuh), the seal of the prophets. Was the final revelation completely clear and understandable, or were certain parts still counter intuitive and required faith to follow? Adaptation is different from following based on reason. We adapt to our environment over which have no control, or to a religion under compulsion or to the religion because we have faith in it although not everything is clearly understood….

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Mr. President,

    The US is withdrawing from Afghanistan as well as from Iraq and Syria. Inspired by the Taliban declaration of victory, a radicalised terrorist in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, backed by a Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist organisation, attacked an Indian military convoy, killing 40 soldiers. Similar suicide attack killed 27 elite revolutionary guards in Sistan, Iran. Emboldened Jihadists will surely carry out more such attacks in future. The gloating in Islamist circles for having “defeated” both the superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, has reached its peak.

    Mr. President,

    Still fresh in our minds is what happened when the international community abandoned Afghanistan in 1989. Taliban ruled and Al-Qaeda got a safe haven. A series of atrocities including 9/11 and horrors of Islamic State followed.

     In this backdrop, the complacency of the world community in allowing Taliban to govern Afghanistan is inexplicable. Jihadist strength does not come from their soldiers and territories. It comes from an ideology and ideologies cannot be defeated militarily.

    Mr. President,

    The Jihadist ideology is based on very solid foundations in Islamic history, scriptures and theology. Moderate Muslims have not yet succeeded in evolving a satisfactory alternative theology of peace and pluralism to challenge the current theology of violence and exclusion. Even when such a theology evolves, it will take time and effort for it to be established. Mainstream Muslims should be allowed the time and space to work out and propagate a counternarrative. I would, therefore, urge the international community not to repeat the mistakes of 1989 and invite further disasters....

    Interfaith Dialogue

    “An attack on the sovereignty of madrasas” is how the All India Muslim Personal Law Board secretary described the suggestion to bring the Muslim religious schools under the Right to Education (RTE) act. Madrasas’ autonomy and independence guaranteed under Articles 29 and 30 of the Constitution will be threatened, Khalid Saifullah Rahmani said recently.

    But, the question is what have Indian madrasas, where more than seven million children go for basic education, made of their autonomy? Even if one concedes that it is okay for them to teach just Islamiyaat, they must be asked what brand of Islam are they teaching these impressionable children?...

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    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....

The moral code from religion enabled us to develop trust in strangers through shared values from religion and cooperate in large numbers without which we may not have survived as a species...
