Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam (05 Jul 2017 NewAgeIslam.Com)


  • Akhtar Islam one of the verses of quaran tells u that who so ever in non believer should be killed. So tell me where u stand. Do u have a separate quaran. Why the non believer should be killed at all. U n all Muslims believe that God is urs only rest r fodder cannon. This can not be the word of Allah. If at all it is then the God is worth spiting. U r yesterdays religion not even that but a cult n the content of belief is just trash n nothing else n on that u ridicule all world religions. U say we r the only right school of thought. It is just ignorance n kac of Muslim intellect. U have no logic in ur school if thought it is like a gun carring gunda saying follow me. 
    U hv no right to intellectually interpret ur quaran. U HV been ordered to slaughter intellect if it finds some thing to be corrected. U just blind n dumb.

  • As per quran, one should not live in a non Islamic state, but most of the Muslims die to get into western countries and once they settle there and grow in numbers they ask for sharia, ain't it funny?

  • Not all Hindus see bad part of their religion , nor do all Muslimsm. Customs of Quran was acceptable in old days, may not be now. The problem with all organized religions is that they think older the better. Why not just have Humanism leaving the Unseen untouched?

  • @Mr Himanshu Shekhar Mishra, you are unlucky that you are continuously meeting third class Muslims, who are not practising Muslims. No practising Muslim would be interested for gaining fame with the help of media. You are in constant touch of Muslim terrorist and terrorism sponsored by gulf countries under various title. Just open your eyes and you will see many top class individuals surrounding you without your knowledge. Take Care. Good Night !
    By Mansoor Sahab - 7/29/2017 2:05:00 AM

  • Atleast we as Hindus don't deny existance of evils in our customs and some practices. But with time we introspect and realize the fallacy of such rituals and with time we do away with such rituals. So we have inherent mechanism to accept changes. But Muslims should ask themselves do they introspect and ready for change which is the demand of present time and do away with medieval practices.

  • @Vijay Prakash Before raising finger on other religions see yours. Not much before in Hinduism when a husband in family was dead , his wife was also thrown into burning flames of fire, what a justice Hinduism teaches to their desedents. Idol worshiping, human sacrifice on temples, prostitution , indecency etc etc what wisdom is in these things.

  • There is everything good in me because I consider others same as me, nowhere I burst any bomb, I don't kill any people even related to other religion ,I trust in humanity these all characters are in me because I am a Hindu and I proud to be a Hindu. After all I told the truth and didn't condemn others.

  • @Taslima Ansari,

    You must have heard a Persian statement "Naqle Kufr, Kufr na bashad" that means "quoting kufr is not the act of kufr". 
    If you think anything is kufr-based statement, there is no harm in quoting it to guide the people and save them from misguidance.  

    By Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi غلام غوث الصديقي - 7/27/2017 11:28:39 PM

  • Dear Vijay Prakash!
    Nothing is good in Qur'an for this era when the animal self of man dominates his activities and aspirations - for the Qur'an is a living crusade against man's animal instincts and base desires.

    Which person on earth this day would not like to amass wealth, live in luxury, enjoy company of the young and beautiful of the opposite sex, have all the good things of life for himself or herself. Which person is not liable fall prey to the diverse defilement of mind – arrogance, selfishness, greed, gluttony, prejudice, hatred, bigotry, anger, vengeance, stinginess, fraud, self-righteousness, giving oneself to excesses, sexual freedom, and other innate passions and temptations. How many traders in a typical 3rd world country would not like to maximize profits by unethical means? How many witnesses in the court of law will refrain from giving false witness to save their accused under trial. How many men will keep their wives under divorce notice at their homes allowing them all their pre-divorce facilities? The answer in each case and and many more cases in real life - is barely few for humankind is prone to be controlled by his ego – his animal instincts and readily succumb to the innate defilements of mind. There are other moral strings that were relevant to the era of revelation that included freeing of slaves, forbiddance of adultery, arbitrary punishment, all round empowerment of women and so forth.

    The Qur'an warns the animal self of man against all its selfish craving - so there is nothing good in it for a man of this era

     Not surprising even some Muslims are fed up with it and talk of editing it. A non-Muslim is not expected to appreciate the beauty of the Qur'an for he naturally judges it by what he sees the Muslims doing. But these Muslims do not represent Islam. The vast majority of Muslims are peace loving. Imagine if Islam taught terrorism  your country will turn into a cauldron of blood shed. One terrorist Muslim is enough terrorize a whole nation and you have 200 millions of them in India. So think carefully before what you write. And do not take the Muslims for the Red Indians of Inkas. Do not forget that you lived with them side by side in harmony for more than 600 years prior to the bloody partition of India and think how can you recreate an atmosphere of harmony when the political table has turned in your favor - rather than the Qur'an

  • Dear Taslima Ansari,

    If NAI does not  publish such articles, you do not have the opportunity of show-casing your faith. I have just posted an article under the caption,

    Some Muslim Intellectuals of this era cry lies or half-truths against Islam creating doubts and suspicions against it – ignorantly or fraudulently - God knows best.

    It may be posted in a couple of hours. As you read down the lines you have this statement that exposes the true character of people like Hassan Radwan:

    Scholars are free to hold any view but if they take to lies or half-truths to support their views, they do far greater harm to their community than any good. They become conspirators and traitors.
    By muhammad yunus - 7/26/2017 10:36:39 PM

  • I have also once stated in one of my comments that in London a school has been established where anti-Islamic people are trained and taught Arabic, Quran and Hadith, with the purposes of defaming Islam, making hate propaganda against Islam and Muslims. Hassan Radawan is one of them.

    Having evil purpose in my mind, if I am trained in any non-Islamic religious school, I may turn any good education into bad education.

    By Tasleema Ansari - 7/26/2017 7:24:05 PM

  • "My view is that the Qur’an is not perfect and I believe it’s time we Muslims admitted that the Quran and Sunna can indeed lend itself to very harsh and violent - yet perfectly valid interpretations. The solution is not to try and twist the texts to come up with a counter-interpretation but to simply accept the fact that the Quran is not perfect. It is not infallible. It can be wrong."

    This view and belief is absolutely kufr. Why does New Age Islam publish such kufr-based articles?  
    The study of all environment around the world tells us as if the entire scenario is being created by anti-islamic hooligans and so-called muslims to force the Muslims for being apostates.
    May Allah protect Muslims from such kufr-brainwashing articles!

  • There is no God, no Allah, no Vishnu...nothing. All preachers of a new religion started out as greedy pretenders looking for power, and nothing else. Understand this and you will realise that humanity has only itself to blame for all the atrocities committed over the centuries in the name of religion.
    I truly pity the one who thought up the concept of religion in the first place...he is responsible for so many deaths. If there had been no religion, humanity would not have been so divided as it is today.

    How can a shapeless and formless God reveal a religion to human,????
    If God needs to reveal the RELIGION to humans , HE SHOULD have spoken in some human language , If he can speak like a human then surely SHOULD be in some human shape....
    SO either the claim that God is SHAPELESS is absolute lie OR the claim of God revealed RELIGION is absolute rubbish...
    The ONLY Other way is Hallucination ...

Ans, No my dear Rawan you have misunderstood it not Muslims.

  • In fact in practice we haven't taken into consideration many things and more importance is given to hadith's whereas most hadith's are not authentic.Can anybody analyse ayate mobahela and prove the position of the people who were with rasulallah in mobahla. Likewise triple talaq.It should b pronounced in three months.l don't want to go in detail of many things.Ist and second months is talaqe tajaee and the third is talaqe baiyan.This is at all different from triple talaq as is justified by pseudo molvis.Quran doesn't need any reformation.It is perfect.Such sort of questions are irrelevant as everything is Quran is relevant.We ignorant can't understand and denounce q Quran Shareef

  • Here Muslims are branded as extremists by some innocent people. B'caz they r unable to understand / know the international politics of its long periods. The world media r mostly in the hands of America and the American jews. They deliberately brought the propaganda against the Muslims worldwide. Muslims r the only community suffered in the hands of the Christian terrorist nations and the leaders.
    pls take note :
    Joseph Stalin killed 20 million people.
    Benitto Mussolini killed 4 lakh people.
    Hitler killed 11 million people.
    200000 people were killed by bombing in Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
    17 million people were killed in world war I.
    55 million people were killed in WW II.
    500000 people were killed in Bosnia and Kosovo.
    60000 people were killed in Afghanistan.
    5 million people were killed in Vietnam.
    12 million people were killed in Iraq.
    The murderers mentioned above r Christians and the murders were made by Christian nations.
    Can anybody else come forward to deny it.?

    By Arnab Kumar DE - 7/24/2017 11:45:39 AM

  • Not only Islam,but in my opinion all religions including mine ,are not perfect throughout the long course of hisrory.But most religions transformed in one or other way,in their course of journey.The transformations had mixed effects,sometimes the results were not always satisfactory. All major religions had undergone revisionism and bifurcated into sects and subsects.In my opinion at the very earliest stage all religions were better than what those became in medieval age.Medieval age destroyed the spiritual essence of all religions and chained them by host of superstitions. Enlightenment of Europe was a blessing for mankind as the scientific temperament grew some religions like Christianity had broken the shackles of superstitions and opened up the horizon with the idea of Liberalism. Other religions continued with sluggish pace .Some religions moved slowly and finally transformed under the influence of colonialism. Hinduism and Buddhism follwed this slow transformation path.I think from this point Islam remained static because it refused to transform under the influence of Western world and under the impact of Christianity. Because of Islam,s huge following it considered itself a competitor of western Christian world and refused to change.Colonialism had it,s own negative effect on civilization as it poltically chained populations of many countries and created utter confusion resulting in revolution in the Western world and finally triggered two world wars.Religions which could transformed themselves before the start of the war flourished socially and economically.Islam quite naturally got confused under the impact of World wars ,created by western countries and grew hatred against western world and world wars and completly refused to transform itself.Most of the religions and countries were transformed before world wars but Islam remained static under negative impacts of World wars.The essence of all religions lies to bring prosperity and peace in a society.To achieve that goal religions and society must make arrangement for food and employment for all.When the basic needs are fulfilled ,religion and society must make provisions for quality education to bring material prosperity. Without having proper democracy, however rich one country may be power and wealth would be concentrated with the hand of princly classes and the ordinary people will remain impoverished which will create law and order problems in the society finally culminating into extremism.Just watch and compare some of the Scandinavian countries like Sweeden,Denmark,Norway,Switzerland ,unlike USA or UK they are so small but so advanced.They are not militarily powerful as China ,USA,UK ,India or Russia but there people are so advanced,rich and happy,because their social structure are very advanced.But Asian countries were more advanced than European or American countries thousand of years ago.Mesopotemia,Babylon modern day Iraq,Egypt,Iran,ancient India,China and Arabian countries were cradle of civilization and far advanced than Western countries before the advent of Islam,even during first five hundred years of Islam.So were Indian Hinduism,Buddhism, Jainism, but all Asian countries and religion fell back because of conservative approach and sectarianism. The same people,same race who were so advanced, struggled and decayed,for want of farsightedness and vision.

    This is my analysis of evolutionary process of world religions.

    Now it is upto all the religious leaders of different sect of Islam to make a positive move towards global integration.None else but Only they can undertake this complex process..

  • Possible through wider interpretation of verses and paradigm shift of Muslims all over the world. Every sect and organisations in islam interpreted quran in their own way and claim themself to be real muslim. If only one wider interpretation is there then it is possible but it is easy to say , hard to pursuate fundamentalist terrorist groups sprouted in the name of Islam. Site, sunny, hanafy , hanbali ,shafie, Maliki,ja ferri, wahabi,salafi, Isis,bakoharam, abu syaf ,nusrat etc all claim themself to be real muslim.
    By Hanif Mustaque Ahmed - 7/24/2017 11:43:45 AM

  • The followers of every religion do not always adhere to tenants of the religion. The perform the rituals but do not follow it's spirit. They are selective in following it and interpret things as that suits them. 
    It is not the reform but the interpretation in the light of present century demands.

Not only this, those scholars who died many years back their records lectures are presented as live and now a days it is not considered ' bidat '

  • Most of what is written in Koran is pretty good. There may be a few verses which can be interpreted according to proclivity. The greater shortcomings among many Muslims is the obduracy , total denunciation of critical thinking and a tendency of spinning conspiracy theories about other people being after them.

  • Swamijee said all versions of religion is the same which converts man from animality to manhoodness then upgrades into Divañity So every religion is true and its epics also like Geeta Baibel Koran shorif etc are important in order to become the above transmation of man.

  • It seems very funny a human is talking about to reform the truth of God who gave him birth and all well... Probably writer is under cover and working for enemy of Islam... Btw I m very very thankful to my almighty Allah who correct my ancestors to become Muslim...And God sake who are taking about reformation they are actually curse for humanity... They believe in to promote nudity over the world which is common nowadays.. And last I pray to Allah forgive me and give strength enough to face the devil of Islam...

  • Why single out Islam alone? Christianity is equally dangerous for its conversion tactics. Both the religions survive on brain washing and uses either terror or coercion as tools to propagate. The earth will be inhabited by spiritual beings only if these two religions vanish. Hinduism or any other eastern religions or even the aborigines have good spiritual wisdom than these religious fanatics. Indians are jeopardizing the future generations' future by not waking up to the danger lurking around them.

  • Central Asian societies mostly coexist just fine combining Islam and modern secularism. Uzbekistan is a prime example of a society which didn't allow wahabism to creep and yet they retained Islam. 
    Arab and south Asian societies tend to be most resistant to change. This is a sociological issue of west and south Asia and not so much Islam par se.

    1.whatever is written, does it stand the test of truth and reasonableness? 
    2.Does it give positive message to reader? 
    3.Does it promote harmony among human beings?
    4. Does it stand the test of equality, gender justice, truth and righteousness? 
    5. Does it allow to change with time and move with time?

  • Because there is solution of every problem in Quran pak. Every way of life is shown in Quran. There is no space for terrorism or violence in Quran. The person who knows and follows Quran cannot be a terrorist. Hazrat Umar was one of the famous muslim kings who was follower of Quran. Was he terrorist. Gandhi ji has said that a king of nation should follow Hazrat Umar. Friends who is best judge in the present world them Gandhi ji. Who advised his friends to become king like Hazrat Umar. Know you are the best judges to judge that threre is no need of reforms in Islam.

I don't know about others: I can only talk for myself. Trying to talk lofty about Islam when most of its tenets are incompatible with the rest of the world @ 2017 is what is argued. We can sit and troll each other as donkeys and monkeys but such a lowly way of argumentation will never lead to solutions. Cheers.

This is what actual problem of you and all muslims, u people cant think beyond the islam and qooran, this single reason is enough to show that how islam and qooran brainwashes its followers and make them dangerous like terrorist, qooran is just one book in islam but in sanathana there are thousands of religious books you can choose any one which can be best for you and u can adopt it in ur life , but in islam there is no choice for selection you have to choose qooran or else you will get killed by muslims if u regret the qooran ! In sanahan dharma even atheists are considered as part of our religion thats greatness of our sanatana dharma hope u understand the differences btween muslims and sanathan dharmis we dont have intention to make sanathana kingdom like islamic kalifa -like that muslims have , we believe in vasudaiva kumb kutumbam means whole world is one family and all human beings are one family members !

    Love and fear cannot coexist. When there is love, there is no fear or where there is fear, there is no love. So, the term God-fearing doesn't exist, if at all it exists, then you don't trust that God, simple! Islam promotes a God-fearing mindset.

Even the weak army led by Shah Alam dared to ask Maharaja Ranjit Singh to pay Jazzia tax or face death if not converted to Islam. The Maharaja being very powerful laughed it away and defeated Alam. Manusmruti holds even shudras to be protected in all costs and a village where they shed tears will perish.

I do hope that being a self respecting person you too will re – think about your religious commitments after reading above episodes . culture is immaterial .
    By Iqbal Husain - 7/20/2017 9:06:24 AM

  • @Iqbal Husain , it is not possible for any Muslim to understand the depth of Hinduism . Hisduism is for those endowed with reason . Islam is for those who are brainwashed and conditioned from childhood to learn by rote and accept dogmas . The Bukhari family of Delhi Jama Masjid, and so many other hereditary imams are having control of Islamic mosques and dargahs . If there is caste system amongst Hindus , there is twice the caste system amongst Muslims . The Arabs don't even consider the Indian Muslims , who are all converts , as proper Muslims , what to talk of equals . As regarding hereditary caste status , it was there only in Kalyug . Before Kalyug there are so many references showing that caste was based on gunas and occupation not birth . Now that Kalyug has ended , so has caste system . The greedy secularists , in partnership with jihadis, for political gains, were flogging this horse to deliver votes . Now this model of vote garnering has come to its logical end , and caste system is also breathing it's last breath . In Satyug, which is round the corner , there will be no caste system and only sanatan dharma will flourish . Islam was like the ant which takes wing during rainy season . It's allotted 1400 years have been completed . Today is the period known as Quiyama or resurrection , which is krita yug in sanatan terminology. It is a short period of transition from Kalyug to Satyug . The real meaning of resurrection is to resurrect oneself spiritually . The process is known as Miraj in Quran . It is atam sakshatkar in sanatan language . There is a dormant residual energy at the Base of the spine in sacrum bone , which when awakened , rises upwards , pierces the fontanelle bone at top of the head, to unite with the all pervading power of God's love , to give the person his second birth or resurrection or Quiyama . Those who achieve such resurrection will be saved .

  • Ashok Chohan , Rohan Chakravorty , Rasikbhai Gandhi , Malik Mehraj , Piyush Mukherjee , Mansoor Sahab , Ajit Singh Mankotia this post of mine is in response to bigoted post of rasikbhai. Few points.
    (1) before accusing other religions first study your religion properly and correctly. In the early pure Hinduism “IDOL Worship” was not present. No early text of Hinduism mentions about “IDOL Worship”. The later age innovations cannot erase originality of Hinduism. Refer to Arya Samaj books and indologist like DD Kosambhi and others.. 
    (2) if you are so proud of your dynamism then are you willing to (A) abolish current system where almost 100% jobs of pujaries / mahants are reserved for one community. (except few exceptions here and there). (B) distribution of charity in form of food, money, clothes etc also given to one community preferentially at the cost of teeming needy people. Are you willing to change it. (3) will you strive to make VARNA convertible . will you plead with RSS to promote some of their SC ST OBC members to the higher varna of Brahmin or Kshatriyas . YES or NO.
    (3) as regards history. We too can quote from books of ancient India about atrocities committed on SC ST OBC. But we refrain ourselves from this negativity because our holy books prohibits us for speaking ill about reverential figures of other religions.
    (4) Your silence on the matter of laws of manu summoned up the entire debate.

    By Iqbal Husain - 7/20/2017 9:03:56 AM

  • Feridoun Fathi what you are stating here is mere taquiya . The interpretation of the entire Quran is as per convenience . The plain fact of the matter is that the moment percentage of Muslims increases , through covert means , the meaning of jihad changes and the methods become overt . Islam is not equipped to co-exist with any other faith . In Bharat Varsha, where already a very deep and enlightened faith exists which has stood the test of time since creation itself , a faith which has been nurtured time and again by the almighty himself coming as Poorna Avtar, the faith which has been nurtured by God's power , Shakti, herself , the one who created creation for the pleasure of God herself came to rid this most pious land of the demonic characters( like Osama bin laden ) who became powerful from time to time , this Dev Bhoomi is so pious that it's stones , mountains , rivers , and oceans , it's trees and flowers and birds and animals , it's soil , it's water , it's air , it's fire and it's ether all are worth worshipping , on such a land and such a culture , such a never ending stream of spiritual endeavour by mighty rshis, who learnt the greatest secrets of creation and the creator through the whisperings of the deities in the depth of their meditative states to give rise to spiritual wisdom known as sanatan dharma , what value addition could a religion of dogmas , born in a violent , deprived desert , bring ? Why don't Muslims realise the futility of trying to bring value addition to the land of sanatan dharma?

  • Behare Lal Dhar , In Arabic, Jihad means endeavor. endeavor for betterment of the society, endeavor to defend one's motherland against invaders. but, the biggest Jihad is to fight against the evils within one's own and it is call Jihad-e-Akbar. but, unfortunately, the enemies of Islam, for now, have succeeded projecting any terror act by a Muslim as a Jihad.
    By Feridoun Fathi - 7/19/2017 10:05:47 AM

  • Firstly , why are you writing under a pseudonym , Rajeesh Jaf ? Love jihad is carried out under pseudonyms , so it is hateful . Anyway , coming to the issues raised . When the mosque in my neighbourhood proclaims in ear splitting fashion , five times a day , that there is only one God known as Allah , it hurts my ear , my mind and my sensibilities . I want to ask you , why are such provocative pronouncements being made over a screeching loudspeaker in my area ? Why this "la ilha ilallah " on loudspeaker ? Next . We all live in society , we want to live amicably with each other , so we seamlessly blend with each other . How ? By adopting decent , but modern clothing and outward appearence. So , obviously , those who maintain outward appearence as in medieval ages , want to show some kind of superiority towards us . So how can we like such people ? It is not that we do not know how our ancestors dressed and maintained themselves in the medieval times , when they fought wars , but keeping in view the modern needs , we don't care to dress outlandishly. Why the Muslims ? Every Friday , when they file past in their skull caps , beards , and Pakistani style kurta pyjama suits , they resemble army men proceeding for a fallin in fatigues . I should know the implications very well . So how can I like such people ? Next . Why do these people occupy roads , rail tracks , intersections to offer enmasse namaaz ? Is it not a threat and a show of force ? How is devotion and piety enhanced by such rituals performed by exclusively male hordes ? How can I like it viewed in this light ? Next . The Muslims who have undergone no formal education except some madrassa learning , and may not be able to write their name very well , they can recite by heart all the 'suras' of Kuran regarding idol worship , polytheism , worshipping goddess , kuffr. The wahabi mullahs have done an excellent job of filling these surplus and empty minds with hatred , at young and impressionable ages . One can suppress them , but they can't be changed , so we'll are they conditioned . How can I like someone who hates my religion and my gods ? I could give you reason after reason , but this much should suffice . The small minority of educated middle and upper class Muslims do not count . Because one never finds them condemning openly the Islamic obscurantists , the jihadists and the love jihadists , the terrorists , and the Kashmir Muslims who threw out their brethren by blood , the pandit , merely on the basis of religion . In fact , this lot itself has been in the forefront in love jihad .

  • @Gulfaraz Ahmed Malik I have no issues with Islam perse, and certainly nurture no need to advise Muslims on the matter of reform . If the Muslims feel the need , they should reform themselves as per their need . Hindus have always accepted diversity . There is so much of diversity and freedom of choice within Hinduism itself that diversity is not an issue at all . Now for the issues .
    I have an issue that Muslims don't allow their girls and women to go out of their houses freely to mix with hindu males but don't restrain the boys and men to mix with Hindu females . How can these two faiths coexist peacefully , when one believes in equal right of freedom of females , other is predatory . 
    I have an issue with induced conversions , with love jihad which exploits emotional nature of women .
    I have an issue in the population explosion due to sharia driven opposition to birth control , aimed at changing demographic pattern . Traditionally , contraception was forbidden in all faiths , only Muslims continue to follow this regressive practice .
    I have a problem with use of loud speakers five times a day to announce that there is only one God called Allah , something which is against my faith .
    I have a problem that a religion which advocates murder of kafirs , exists in my neighbourhood . I have come to know that I am a kafir as per Islam , hence there are people nurturing belief that it is right for them to kill me when they become strong , who are prospering in my neighbourhood . As a rational person I have reached the conclusion that in the interest of my future safety , I must do something today , while still strong , so that those who would kill me in future , never become strong enough to fulfil their dreams .

  • Dear Manzar Khan,

    Truth blots out falsehood. If  somebody who has a first class honors degree in classic Arabic and claims to be a Muslim, as the author of the above article advocates changing the Qur'an, he has obviously not read the following verse of the Qur'an that was addressed to the Prophet Muhammad.

     “If he (Muhammad) attributed to Us any false speech (69:44), We would seize him by the right hand (45), then We would sever his aorta (46) and none of you could prevent it (69:47).

    He makes some good point in that all reform movements have been retrogressive but rather than blaming the reform-ideologues he is blaming the Qur'an.

    All said it is not fair to blame NAI for posting the article for it only tells us how some people claiming to be Muslims have the audacity to suggest changing the Qur'an as if it were the creation of the Prophet and his comrades.  If that were so, it would have come to light immediately after the death of the Prophet and not 14 centuries later. So the proposition is patently absurd.

    By muhammd yunus - 7/19/2017 6:32:50 AM

  • Islams allows muslims to defend themself & their religion. And with out any reasons killing peoples are strictly prohibited. Killing of any ONE individul is sin as if he has killed whole himanity & saving ONE life is "sawab" good work as if he has save whole humanity - AL QURAN
    ISLAM is a religion of peace and always give lesson of peace and brotherhood both with believers(muslims) & non believers( kafirs) equally .

    By Azhar Jameel - 7/19/2017 2:50:07 AM

  • While the Qur'an is sacred those portions which are irrelevant in today's times or the verses that can be easily misinterpreted should be removed or rephrased to give a clear understanding of peace and love which is the sole intention of any holy book. This has to be supported by learned people preaching in mosques and not those who are there to make money. Countries teaching hatred need to be eliminated immediately before the world starts hating the Muslim world which I guess is already happening creating a very scary picture for the genuine Muslims all around.

Budshah is not their favourite, they extol Sikanderbut shikan, Syed ali Hamdani his son & Mir Shamas DIIn Iraki as path finder of Islam in Kashmir. Because they were intolerant to Hindus & their way of life.

  • Don't act as blind,deaf n dumb.All others have united to save their religion n practices against sharp spreading of Islam among non-muslim communities so hidden n open conspiracies n machinations have been widened even with the help of "Munafiqeens"among muslim community as well "(divisive forces) to help n establish"greater israel with jewism" its religion across the world.All un -rest n in-stability among world countries n especially in muslim countries have the same cause n reason.They believe that at a point when muslims r tired up ,their rulers n scholars will let them down n their noose is tightened by the driving forces they will find no other alternative but to accept other faith for survival n development.But like other things man proposes n god disposes these conspiracies will meet the same fate one after other.Islam means security to all people including those belonging to different faith how can it be in-security n against its divine teachings to the people(His creation") who r addressed repeatedly to maintain peace n tranquality on earth in all circumstances n defend truth against evil n stand by to judicious, truthfulness n righteousness to the people.

  • I find it very common sense that a messenger of God (as we have called the prophet) cannot preach any divide among human beings, less so killing in the name of religion. Also it is known to History that the Caliphs after Mohammad changed the shape of Islam for their own purpose. It was very helpful for them during the years they expanded Islam and fought with Christianity. What kind of a God is it that can differentiate between different lives? The One Power of Creation or Existence only favors life and that is why Life is there all around in all shapes. We have been given power to think and decide and it is for us to make laws and interpret or modify religion, so that it fulfills God's/Nature's purpose. Instead many of us Humans seem to be going against God's wishes and that too using his name to perpetrate crimes against Life.

    By Dipak Kumar Chakrabarty - 7/16/2017 8:34:34 AM

  • Interesting that even the Meccans at the time of the Prophet had dismissed the Qur'an in a very emphatic and uncompromising manner and not until the peaceful integration of Mecca - some 20 years into the revelation did they believe in its divinity, and turned its most ardent defender and promoter and for the last fourteen centuries billions of Muslims have believed in its divinity. But no doubt billions of people of other faith and may be millions of liberal Muslim era of this era question its divinity. Whether or not the Qur'an is divine is largely a matter of faith and how one reads the Qur'an. It acknowledges that it does not touch the heart of the skeptics; and faith is above any statistics.

    This writer his, however, dismissed the featured article's claim of un-intelligibility of the Qur'an in his article referenced below which tables the following counter-argument against this article: 

    "a section of educated youth – mostly the rich elite, business tycoons and those seeking to free themselves from religious bondage, as well as the atavistic among the Ulama and radicalized elements (a small minority though) ready to blow themselves up in public place and terrorize humanity or condone such acts have unwittingly joined ranks to propagate the weakest accounts (ahadith) and the most grotesque rulings of the Classical Sharia to justify their blatantly anti-Qur’anic views.  These insiders (the liberal, rationalist hypocrites and the fanatic and misguided Ulama) thus demonize their Prophet, scandalise his wives (their own mothers in the spirit of the Qur’anic verse 33:6), poison interfaith relations and reduce Islam into a voluptuous and barbaric cult. In historical perspective this is the most dangerous development in Islam, even more dangerous than the recent anti-terror wars on the Muslim lands or the Crusades and the Mongol attacks some eight hundred years ago. These inside demonizers of Islam are unwittingly projecting their faith and fellow Muslims as a heavy and unbearable burden on human civilization and setting the stage for a deadly backlash from the powerful enemies of Islam – the Islamophobic think-tank and military industrial complex - than what the world has seen in the past decade. Therefore, it is absolutely imperative to install the Qur’an in its rightful place as an independent, completed and perfected fount of guidance as it claims and this article aims at.

  • परम्परा और धर्म 

    इस्लाम की शिक्षा उसी इस्लाम के अनुयायी देशो में सिद्ध हो गयी . इस्लाम के नाम पर हिंसा और क्रूरता के उदाहरण अभूत पूर्व हैं . दुख है की यह आज भी है . तेल पर निर्भर अरब की शक्ति अब कम हो गयी है और इस्लाम की शक्ति से हासिल वह परम्परा अब अधिक नहीं चल सकती. मुगल या मांगोल ज़िसने शक्ति से सारे अरब और योरप और चीन पर शासन किया वह आज कहाँ है ? चीन की दीवार उसी मुगल के डर से बनायी गयी थी . 
    कुछ महीने पहिले मैने एक सच्ची फ़िल्म ज़िसे इनदेपनदेंट अखबार के पत्रकार ने ली थी देखा था . उससे मुझे बहुत कुछ समझने को मिला . वह फ़िल्म बहुत ही भाव पूर्ण था . उसमें एक माँ को जो ज़मीन में गले तक गाडी जा चुकी थी उसे पत्थर मार मार कर मारा गया और उनके पुत्रों को जब अपनी माँ को मारने के लिये कहा गया तब वे ग्लानि से भर गये और फिर उन लोगों ने भी पत्थर मारे . यह कोई हत्या नहीं थी किंतु एक सामाजिक और मानसिक बलात्कार का संदेश था . 
    तब से मैने चिंतन की दिशा में बदलाव किया . भारत में इस्लाम नहीं है यह कभी था भी नहीं. मुगलों ने भी इस्लाम को कभी नहीं अपनाया . यह केवल् शासन के भय का अस्त्र रहा . भारत में हिन्दूओं ने लालच या भय के कारण या हिन्दू परम्परा की कठोरता के कारण इस्लाम को अपनाया था . इसके उदाहरण शेख अबदुल्ला के पूर्वज हैं . ये अरबी या इस्लाम के अनुयायी नहीं हैं . किसी भी भारतीय मुसलमान शासक के पूर्वज का इतिहास ही उनके आज के परिस्थितियों का कारण है . वे लालच या शासकिय पद के अनुयायी थे और उसका लाभ उन्हें मिला . 

    भारतीय या हिन्दू इस्लाम, उदार है और यह वह नहीं है ज़िसके लिये इस्लाम जाना जा रहा है . प्रेम और स्वतंत्र बुद्धि से ही इस्लाम के परम्परागत जडता को नष्ट किया जा सकता है .

  • No religion can be enforced and curb the freedom of human existence.Even Lord Krishna in Bhagavath Gita only speaks of different aspects of human life ,the crisis,the crisis management without any enforcement on His advice.Religion is like a light house guiding us in the midst of our turbulent mental state.Enforcement of any religion is infringement on freedom of human existence.Till today none of the people who have died,have never come back to explain us about meeting 72 virgins in heaven.Then why to incite violence & attrocities in the name of religion.

  • Holy Quran and the religion of Islam always speak about reforming ourselves to bring about goodness of the world. Those who speak against it always considered being misguided or gone stray. May Allah bless them hedaya to come to the truth and not guided by satanic influences. Muslim ummah are I think needs a lot of introspection to shun away crimes and criminalities in every walks of life. However present circumstances remains a chain everywhere and always a point for blaming for everything what this world witnesses. This is really a telling sick on the face of Muslims world.

  • Maulana Jalal- ud-Din Rumi says,

    The prophets were ordinary commoners. Otherwise, in Your bounty, You would have poured the elixir onto the copper of their being.

    All the early scholars of Islam acknowledged that the Prophet Mohammad was an ordinary human being except in respect of his spiritual distinction. This fact is attested by verse 110 of sura 18  "I am only a human like you. It is being revealed to me that your God is One God." None of the Sonni scholars considered perfect knowledge and sinlessness to be essential attributes of the Prophet Mohammad. They saw his prophet-hood as a special gift from God in the sense that God selects for the prophetic task a man who is gifted with human qualities such as knowledge and virtue in an extraordinarily high degree, or rather who becomes gifted with such extraordinary qualities at the time of his appointment to guide the people.

    To understand this, it is necessaty to see how the mission of prophet Muhammad started.

    the Iranian scholar Ali Dashti who wrote a valuable book,”Twenty Three Years- A study Of The Prophetic Career Of Muhammad” writes in page no 24-26 of his book,

    “Mount Hera is a rocky, arid height three miles north-east of Mecca. On its almost inaccessible slopes are some caves to which ascetic hanifs used to make their way for spells of retreat and solitary meditation. Mohammad had been doing this for some time. A strong desire to get away from the din of life and be alone had often drawn him to the place. Sometimes he took a stock of food and did not come home until it was finished; sometimes he went in the early morning and came home in the evening. One day, in the year 610, when Mohammad was due back in the evening, he did not come, and Khadija grew anxious and sent someone to search for him; but after a while Mohammad appeared in the doorway, trembling and looking pale. Then he said, "Wrap me up!" They did so. Later, when his strength returned and the agitation passed, he told Khadija about the experience which had brought him to this state. The following account by A'esha {Ayesha} is quoted in the reliable Hadith collections of Bokhari, Moslem b. ol-Hajjaj, Abu Da'ud ot-Tayialesi, Ebn Abd ol-Barr, Nowayri, and Ebn Sayyed on-Nas, and in the Mosnad (Compilation) of the famous theologian Ahmad b. Hanbal (164/780-241/855): "The start of the revelation was a holy vision as bright as daybreak which came to the Prophet. At sunset on a day which he had spent in the cave on Mount Hera, an angel appeared before him and said to him, 'Recite!' The Prophet answered, 'I cannot recite.’"2l According to this account, Mohammad described his experience to Khadija in these words: "He (the angel) took me and pressed me down so hard that it took away my strength. When I revived, he again said 'Recite!' and I repeated 'I cannot recite.' He again pressed me down until I became powerless, and then released me and said, for the third time, 'Recite!' Again 1 repeated, 'I cannot.' Once more he pressed me down and released me. Then he said 'Recite in the name of your Lord who created, created mankind from a clot of blood! Recite! And your Lord is bounteous, He who taught by the pen, taught mankind what they did not know.' Then the angel vanished, and I revived again and walked home." Later Mohammad told Khadija that he had been in fear for his life. How should these words be interpreted? What had caused him to become so afraid? Had he supposed that he was losing his senses, that he had been touched by sorcery or stricken by an incurable sickness? Some such cause can be inferred from Khadija's consoling reply: "The Lord would never deprive you of His care when you are so honest, so good to the poor, so hospitable, so affectionate to your family, and so helpful to the afflicted." After this conversation and Mohammad's recovery, Khadija went out of the house in haste to tell Waraqa b. Nawfal what had happened. Always a loather of the Meccan idolatry, Waraqa had long been urging Mohammad to shun Qorayshite follies and to practice spiritual meditations. He told Khadija, "Probably this event shows that God cares for him and has appointed him to guide his people." There is nothing of the supernatural in A'esha's account. Everything in it is reconcilable with the general findings of psychology. A strong wish can make its object appear real and concrete. Formed in nearly thirty years of meditation, strengthened by contacts with followers of the scriptural religions, and supercharged by ascetic retreats to Mount Hera, Mohammad's wish acquired the shape of a vision or, in mystic terminology, an illumination. In personified form, a call for action 25 rang out from the depths of his subconscious mind. Fear of taking action weighed so heavily on him as to cause prostration and fainting. No other explanation of the angel's pressing him until he became powerless is conceivable. The angel personified the aspiration long latent in the depths of his inner being. This analysis, though hypothetical, is supported by another report, according to which Mohammad told Khadija: "While I was sleeping, he (the angel) brought to me a piece of brocade {heavy cloth with a raised design often of gold or silver threads}, in which there was a book, and said 'Recite!' I awoke, and a book seemed to have taken shape in my heart." The fatigue of a day of intense meditation sent him into a trance-like sleep in which his latent aspiration came to light, but the task daunted him. In A'esha's account, the wording is as follows: "Then God's Apostle returned with his heart throbbing. He went to Khadija and said, 'Wrap me up!' They kept him wrapped up until the trembling ceased." His trembling had evidently been induced by extreme fear or anguish. This condition is known to occur in persons who lead a double life - an ordinary life combined with a shadowy, phantom-filled, and shoreless inner life. After this event, Mohammad twice again went into retreat in the cave on Mount Hera; but now no vision came, no angel appeared, no voice rang out. Was the whole experience no more than a dream and a delusion? Were the message of appointment to prophethood and the prediction ofWaraqa b. Nawfal vain talk? From then onward corrosive doubt beset Mohammad's mind and so nearly prevailed that he more than once thought of suicide, of throwing himself over a cliff; but Waraqa and Khadija were always able to calm him and give him hope. The length of the period in which Mohammad received no message and heard no voice from the unseen (in Islamic historical terminology, the interruption of the revelation) is given in different accounts as three days, three months, or three years. It lasted until sura 74 (ol-Moddather) came down. Then the revelation again ceased. The cause of the interruption of the revelation is not difficult to find. After the vision or illumination, the burning thirst of his questing soul subsided. The manifestation of his long cherished inner wish quenched the flames. Naturally doubt and despair set in. Further meditation was necessary to rekindle the fire. Only then could the inner Mohammad hidden under his outwardly dormant self wake and stir again. A'esha's factual account of the Prophet's appointment has been quoted above. Not much more than a century after his death, reports of a very different type were in circulation. By that time fancy had begun to intrude upon fact, and as the years advanced mythmaking and miracle-mongering became more and more widespread and extravagant. Ebn Es-haq's biography of the Prophet, which survives in the recension {a critical revision of a text} of Ebn Hesham, has already been mentioned. Ebn Es-haq died in 150/767 and wrote sometime before that date. A few lines from the work will be quoted to give objective readers food for thought: "In the days before the appointment, whenever Mohammad walked beyond the houses of Mecca to relieve nature's demands, and as soon as the houses disappeared behind the bends in the path, a voice saying 'Peace upon you, O Apostle of God!' rang out from every rock and tree that he passed. But when the Apostle looked to one side or the other, he did not see anybody. There were only rocks and trees around him." Rocks are of course inanimate, and trees do not have vocal cords with which to utter feelings and thoughts. The story is so repugnant to reason that many later theologians and writers on 26 the life of the Prophet disbelieved it and maintained that the voices were voices of angels. It never occurred to their brains that the voice might have been the voice of Mohammad's own soul. Years of meditation and absorption in an idea naturally tend to concretize that idea. In a totally committed mind, the idea might well resound like a voice. In any case, these theologians who, in their anxiety not to impugn Ebn Hesham's veracity, ascribed the voices to angels, failed to discern the obvious corollary of their assertion. If angels had greeted the Prophet, surely they would have greeted him publicly. In that case, all the people would have believed in him, and God's purpose of bringing the Arabs to Islam would have been fulfilled without any trouble. ::" Admittedly theologians in that phase of history could not be expected to recognise that the voice (if genuine) was the voice of Mohammad's own soul; but they might surely have given some thought to another question. If the Prophet had heard such a voice when he was out of the town and alone, how could anyone else have known about it? He did not talk about it himself; there is no authenticated and reliable Hadith on the subject. Clearly it was a figment of the imaginations of myth-makers and miracle-mongers. Ebn Es-haq did not tell lies in the sense of deliberately concocting untruths. He must have heard the story from someone and have accepted it unquestioningly because it accorded with his own faith and feelings. He probably never asked his informant or himself whether any other people had heard the rocks and trees greet the Prophet or whether there was any evidence that the Prophet himself ever claimed to have heard them. The only recorded words of Mohammad about his appointment are in A'esha's account, which has been quoted above. Human beings tend to be captive to their acquired beliefs and submissive to their bodily appetites and instincts. When this is the case, their rational faculty is dimmed. Instead of thinking clearly, they ignore facts which may dent their convictions or conflict with their wishes, and grasp at straws which give semblances of reality to their suppositions and hopes. This tendency has been the root cause of the spread of superstitions and illusions.”

    Note: This book is valuable because it discusses both values and problems which Islam presents to modern Moslems.

  • Who decides the syllabus in the present madarsas? How do we create Madarsas which produce theologians like St. Thomas Aquinas? How to revive rational thought and make it the dominant force within the community? How to revive the culture of the Mu'tazilites? We'll have to fund this, wouldn't we? 
    Plus on the side, we need to promote art and culture (poetry, music, food and cuisines, language and lyrics, attire) as opposed to only scripture.

  • Excellent article.
    The problem of Koran is that it is not in chronological order - hence it cannot be understood - so one picks and chooses whatever one likes. 
    In case someone reads Koran in chronological order - it is quite clear and reflects that it is the work of Mohammed.
    Anyone interested in having a copy of Koran in chronological order, can email me at motorint (at) gmail (dot) com

  • If you will excuse me please, I was born in the Christian religion.  I am not of that any more and I have read many of our bibles and they have numerous copyist errors, and also have been rewritten, due to the powers that be.  It just is. There now are a ton of Christian bibles on the shelf as if you were shopping for shampoo at a walmart.  Not sure you have them there.  You might not want them.  

    However, that missive of God is sold in many different religions, and books of god, which also are like the bottles of shampoo on the Walmart shelves.  So, many that offer different things.  Really? Could I just have the one.  The one that speaks the truth about what all the bibles or shampoos on the shelf are about?
    I just say, the K.I.S. S. principle of God is the Best.  Keep It Simple Stupid.  God is easy to figure out.  

    If you have read many of the Bibles and the works that come from the man of the Bibles...and those bibles are not of a specific  religion, or the words...that speak of God as only a certain way. 
    You have to do God this way.   They are NOT of a Breath of God.
    What does that one breath look or read, or translate of in all of those books.
    It is called the Greatest Commandment, or the Golden Rule, not the silver rule.
    The God I have a breath of after reading many of the breaths of him is of LOVE.
    If you in your religions find God to be of rules and regulations no matter what religion, then you have lost the breath, of a God, that is so majestic, that God rules over the moon, the stars...and God is of the Sun...or Son.
    I wish you the best working this all out within your rules of religion.  Perhaps, if you all would loose that and concentrate on the Message of God...which is Love...we might get a bit further with you all.
    So we will just travel with you and look at Zakats. Here is just one of you, tons others.  However, your Zakat that is vested in 401k's.  Well, let me tell you that one of the investments in the 401K is the Prison system in America that is privatized. Hence, they need to make money, hence innocent men and women in the US are thrown into a jail that is of Privatization and your 401k investment supports that.
    I am just a woman, but could you all get a grip as to what is going on, on this earth.  Please, My Abba is dismayed with what you all believe in the name of what?  We have no clue.

  • Coincidentally, today there is my article which is in 3 parts on Islam and Mysticism which shows that there is no concept of "soul" in the Quran with the help of every verse in the Quran that contain the two Arabic words mistranslated as "soul". The verses, clearly describe the meaning of those words and we do not find the meaning of "soul" in any verse to mean the “indestructible spiritual part of our self that lives on after we die and perhaps pre-existed our birth”. I am not aware if there is another person in the past or present, who has said the same thing, and it would appear that every believing Muslim has believed/believes that we have a “soul”. It is not possible to comment on what the Prophet and the early Muslims believed, since we know nothing about them from primary sources (their own writings), but only from secondary sources written some 200 years later, and from words attributed to them.  So, all Muslims as far as we know, believe or have believed in the “soul”, and all such people have no basis in the Quran to believe so. For the proof read my article: Islam and Mysticism: Is ‘Nafs’ Soul? (Part - 1) and the subsequent parts to be published

     We know that the Prophet preached only for 22 years, and during this period, not more than a thousand Muslims may have been closely associated with him who derived the full benefit of his teachings. Islam spread far and wide very rapidly after the Prophet’s death and there were not enough Muslims to teach new converts the religion of Islam. The new converts brought in their own beliefs into the religion of Islam. As far as the concept of “soul” is concerned, this concept is not only found in every religion but even the rationalist Greek Philosophers did not reject this idea. The idea of a “soul” therefore had a very strong hold on all the people.

     ·         The work of Islamic scholars available to us are from the 9th or 10th century onwards and almost every one of them, and all those who are considered giants, come from the new conquered lands and not from Hejaz. Imam Ghazali, Imam Bukhari, Imam Muslim, Abu-Dawood, Al-Tirmidhi and many others for example, were Persian. Is it a coincidence that all the major compilers of the “ahadith” containing the alleged sayings of the Prophet are Persian? The ahadith have without doubt, completely distorted the religion of Islam on every subject. There isn’t a subject on which the ahadith are not at cross purpose with the clear message of the Quran. if one were to believe the ahadith to be authentic, then one must also believe that the Prophet spent his entire life preaching against the Quran (nauzobillah)!

     However, the followers of the ahadith managed to gain a strangle hold on Islam and what is taught in all the madrasas today, are the ahadith first and then the Quran. If the message of the Quran is found to contradict a hadith, the relevant verse is treated as abrogated! There is therefore no “science” in the reading of the Quran and complete anarchy. In such an environment, is it any wonder that people take whatever meaning that suits them?

     Is it possible to arrive at the correct meaning of every word used in the Quran and every verse without ambiguity? Yes, it is possible.

     Read my articles to find out how:
