Islamic Ideology (09 Mar 2018 NewAgeIslam.Com)


  • The point that Sufi schools need to stand up more decisively against the
    Wahhabist onslaught is well made, but it seems to me that the author is
    mistakenly lumping everything into one basket.

    For example, the author writes about Wahdatul Wujood and Wahdatush Shuhood and somehow makes the conclusion that one has been preferred to the other to make it
    acceptable to the Salafist mindset. This is simply a blind leap. Does 
    the learned author not know that Wahdatul Wujood has always been handled
    gingerly by the scholars? Does the learned author not know that these 
    have been 2 great schools of thought in Tasawwuf throughout history and
    there have been great scholars in every camp? Does the learned author 
    not know that Shaykh Ahmed Sirhindi said that Wahdatush Shuhood is a 
    spiritual station beyond Wahdatul Wujood? Does the learned author really
    think that Shaykh Ahmed Sirhindi is acceptable to the Salafists? Does 
    the learned author not know that Wahdatul Wujood or Wahdatush 
    Shuhood are not academic discussions, but spiritual states that the 
    spiritual seeker attains and as such any academic discussion on this is 
    simply talk and nothing else? The fact is that in history, many 
    discussions and debates arguments and denouncements have been made on these topics and now the consensus seems to be that talk is not going to decide these 
    issues, only walk. Hence, it is generally agreed that one may NOT TALK
    about Wahdatul Wujood or Wahdatush Shuhood. As one progresses 
    spiritually, one or the other station is attained. It is NOT a topic for
    public consumption. As such, it makes no sense to talk about it in 
    public. Personally, I am aware of Sufi Shaykhs who actually teach 
    Wahdatul Wujood to their students, but would never ever discuss this 
    matter in public. It is simply not for each and everyone.

    The other point the author makes is regarding works authored by Sufi saints.
    Yes, it is true that many books authored by great Sufi saints, 
    particularly Rumi, Ghazali, etc. have been removed for the curriculum. 
    However, the reason the author ascribes to this exclusion is erroneous. A
    variety of reasons led to this decision. One, the falling out of favor 
    of Persian, This meant that the Madarsa had to spend lot of hours to first teach Persian and secondly, teach the book itself. Yes, translations are available, but not enough. Second, the inclusion of other theological works which the Madarsa 
    management deemed more important. Third, the pressure to make Madardsa 
    curriculum more "modern" which resulted in addition of subjects like 
    English, computers, etc. To add these things and keep the workload 
    manageable, they had to reduce something. Since the traditional 
    methodology followed is that one first acquires the normative sciences 
    (Uloom al Zaahiri) and then turns to the mystical sciences (Uloom al 
    Baatini), this made is easy for the Sufi works to be dropped from the 
    syllabi. These and a variety of other reasons led to the exclusion of 
    great works of Sufi greats.

    And yes, they feel the difference. The rector of a Madarsa when invited to an inaugural session of lectures on Masnavi of Rumi rued that when he was a student, anyone who did not study Masnavi was not considered a scholar and nowadays scarcely any young student studies it. The Madarsa folk realize this and they 
    are taking baby steps to fill this gap. Some Madarsas include Sufi books
    in readings, i.e. the students are asked to read the books, but no 
    exams are conducted in them.

    The desire to pander to the Salafist mindset is most prevalent in schools partial to Deobandi School of thought. The general Ahle Sunnat have not, thankfully, fallen prey to this, but they have their own problems going on.

  • The great leader of Iran’s Islamic revelation Ayatullah Rohullah Khomonei also had the same opinion about the Islamic jihad. He writes in 'Islam is not a religion of pacifists’

    Islam's jihad is a struggle against idolatry, sexual deviations, plunder, repression, and cruelty. The war waged by [non-Muslim] conquerors, however, aims at promoting lust and animal pleasures. They care not if whole countries are wiped out and many families left homeless. But those who study jihad will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world. All the countries conquered by Islam or to be conquered in the future will be marked for everlasting salvation. For they shall live under [God's law]. ....

    Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against was. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them [the non-Muslims], put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. Does this mean sitting back until [non-Muslims] overcome us? Islam says: Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you! Does this mean that we should surrender [to the enemy]? Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to paradise, which can be opened only for holy warriors!

    There are hundreds of other [Quranic] psalms and Hadiths urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim

    By Mehsud Marazi - 3/25/2018 10:23:17 PM

  • Many of the intellectuals donot have proper understanding of Islam as their knowledge is sourced from the commentaries of people who have again never read the holy book of Quran. If this is done and many are doing now there will not be any room left for such observations. Islam preaches universal brotherhood and life of piety. It teaches the path of truth and peace and rewards those who follow it and also rewards punishment for those who deviate from this path and indulge in violence and spread hatred.

  • God knows what the writer knows about Islam.Does he not know that Islam has never claimed for itself to be a new religion which had not been revealed earlier and all that was known to the world was fake.Quran is witness that believers have been Commanded to believe in all messengers of God without exception.Explicitly u find mention of the righteousness of the faith preached by Jesus,Mosses,Ab _Ram,Nuh(Peace be upon them all),to name a few but humans had somehow lost tract of the original religion preached by glorious prophets.Islam or for that any version of religion in original form is same,this is what we learn from Islam.Islam is for universal brotherhood.No false distinctions in the name of colour of our skin or it lineage.Humanity is introduced as one family.Genuine Sufism is the highest form of obedience to the Lord.Who is unaware about the Sufism practised by great Sofia like Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jeelani,Mir Syed Ali Hamdani,Moin ud Din Christi(peace be upon them all).What type of world we live in.For whose destruction Atom Bombs,missiles,and other deadly ammunition is being manufactured.Is it not human destruction?Is not mass massacre of humanity going on presently in every nook and corner of world .Who is responsible?

  • Dear Sultan Shahin Sahib,

    Well said. ‘Barelvi’ Sufi Sunni Muslims do not allow their followers to sit in company of Wahhabis and Deobandis and neither they allow to make any sort of marriage relationship with these cults. It is the attitude of Wahhabis and Deobandis which has forced the ‘Barelvis’ to take this strong step. It is the fear of Wahhabisation that ‘these Barelvi Sunni-Sufis prevent their followers from sitting with Wahhabis or Deobandis. Once a man sits with Wahhabis or Deobandis, the preacher of Wahhabis starts converting him to Wahhabism.

    Many parents do not know as to why and how their children are and were brainwashed by Wahhabi cults to join the radical groups. Today many parents think their children are going to Wahhabi mosques for performing Namaz or listening to preaching, but there is no surety whether these children will be commanded to go to join the terrorist cults or remain there in India to give heart-and-mind support to the militants.     

    Today if there is any group in India which has curbed the growth of Wahhabism, it is ‘Barelvi’ Sunni-Sufis. I give this credit to them. They are far away from any sort of wrong politics or opportunist nature. They are unlike pseudo-Sufis who are, most of the time, opportunists and talk like Wahhabis in front of Wahhabis, talk like Deobandis in front of Deobandis, and talk like ‘Barelvis’ in front of ‘Barelvis’. By this so-called attitude of ‘liberalism’ and ‘intolerance’, they are allowing the growth of Wahhabism in India.

    The distinction between Sufi-Sunnis and Wahhabis is not limited to the concept of Wahdatul Wujud but more than that there are many issues which originally differentiate between these two groups. These are the issues on which Wahhabis base their Fatwas justifying the killing of non-Wahhabi Muslims. And these are the Fatwas which essentially need to be refuted on academic and public ground.

    How can a ‘Barelvi’ find peace while he is suggested by Wahhabi preachers that he is a ‘Bid’ati’, “Qabar-Pujwa”, “Mushrik” And “Kafir” and “liable to be killed”? How can a “Barelvi” find peace when Wahhabis/Salafis force him to convert to ‘Wahhabism’? According to Wahhabis, unless a “Barelvi” stop believing the doctrines of “noori-bashar”, “ilme-e-ghaib”, “Tauheed and shirk”, “Milad celebrations” “Nat and Salam reciting”, they will not be considered “true and puritanical Muslims”. Should the “Brailvis” then allow their supporters and followers to sit with Wahhabis to accept their Wahhabisation.

    Deobandis are opportunists. When they needed Saudi funding, they helped the growth of wahhabism in India and now since they are being condemned along with wahhabism all around the globe, they have shaken their hands with ajmer khuddams and dargahis, while these khuddams do not know that these deobandis still believe them to be “qabar-pujwa, bida’tis” and hence they do not that they working as opportunists.

    When ISIS came into existence, many Indian Wahhabis and Deobandis supported this militant Wahhabi-affiliated group, but when the ISIS is about to die, these Deobandis and Wahhabis have started claiming their anti-ISIS nature.

    As regards “Barelvis”, they boycotted ISIS on both ideological as well as doctrinal ground. They did not need to send their letters to parliament or Indian government to be showy. The spirit of patriotism does not require a true patriot to display his patriotism in front of power and authority to gain benefits but it requires sincerity and honesty which automatically comes to the notice of public.

    Today not a single group of “Brailvis” is involved into what is being committed by Wahhabi-affiliated ISIS and Deobandi-affiliated Taliban.

    “Barelvis” are true Hanafis and they have certain broader and comprehensive methodological approaches to come at par with the changing needs of time. There were certain war-related rulings made by the scholars of the past, but they are not applicable today for reasons based on Quran and Sunnah. They have understood the spirit and flexibility of Islam and hence they can make ease for their followers in every changing phase of time.

  • Anybody who does not believe in Islam will burn in hell fire. This is the core message of Islam. All great people of the world including Newton, Einstein, Pasteur, Aryabhatt, Gandhi etc who were not Muslims will burn in hell fire as per clear and unambiguous laws revealed through the holy Quran. Sufis can not change this factual position. So no point in discussing further.

  •  Islam has no place for sectarianism or insurgency. 
    It should, infact, be responsibility of the religious leaders and scholars to promote peace and harmony to prevent sectarian violence. 
    As a Muslim we should rise above the religious and sectarian divides and join hands to work for promotion of interfaith harmony, tolerance, shunning sectarianism and establishment of peace.

    By Arun Sharma - 3/21/2018 6:02:48 AM

  • The sufi word, actually means the inner felling of soul, and follow only the right path of prophet S. A. W, and adopting the methods of teaching of prophet S.A.W, and spreading the real tawheed in the whole universe in his real life. This is the actual position of sufi thinking,and spending the whole life, in the way of Allah, and developing his real personality in the front of Allah, in the real sense, in the real eternal life.
    By Muzamil Gul - 3/21/2018 5:59:15 AM

  •  Kuldeep Madaan ji,
     One thing you have said well but if you don’t use the right method while understanding the Quran, Sunnah or sira—the terms as you used in your comment—you may then be confused. Before the modern sort of jihadism there was no need to explain the war-related verses as much as it has become in this age. Today’s terrorists, in the name of Islam, Sharia, Jihad and war-related verses and ahadith, have practically made such an effort that even intelligent non-Muslims like you may be easily confused. You may also be confused with some Muslims who dislike narratives of wahhabism calling for destruction of human beings but at the same time they can be found supporting one another at the voice of so-called slogan of unity and peace. The ideological supporters of extremist wahhabi narratives have become very opportunists and smart, as for example in India, where they can be seen in coffee or tea party with the government or any other security elements; solely because they have realized that if they do not do so they may be banned in India like their likes in some Muslim countries. But when these supporters face any factual ground of investigation, they either use the slogan of Muslim victimhood or hide their real identity under the cover of so-called Muslim unity. Yes, this is so-called “Muslim Unity” on their part, as long as they believe the same fatwas to be available to justify the killing of all non-wahhabi and Sunni-Sufi Muslims.
    Wahhabism is so deeply rooted and smart in India now that you cannot recognize their identity while they will be working under various titles to basically support and upgrade the same thing that is practically being done by ISIS and its likes. Indeed they are appearing to show the false presentation of anti-terrorism conference, while their narratives can be tested in talks to any of their followers.
    Anyway, leave it who is it that truly cares much for that? Everyone is busy worrying about his personal needs. Even I am busy doing the same.  To me, I am not the man to do anything in this regard, nor do I expect from myself to do anything better than before, but since you have appeared to me confused regarding some verses of the Quran, I request you to read my article referenced below;

  • The link of Tahirul Qadri’s speech on wahdatul wujud and wahdatush shuhud


    By Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi غلام غوث الصديقي - 3/21/2018 2:56:29 AM

  • Dear Sultan Shahin sahib, 

    Since you have quoted Dr. Tahirul Qadri in your article, please listen to his speech on the idea of Wahdatul wujud and wahdat Shuhud. According to his research, both the concepts are same with only difference of terms.

    As regards "Barailvis", they still support the concept of Wahdatul wujud. The difference in their behavior is that some of them like Tahirul Qadri think wahdatul wujud and wahdatush Shuhud are same while others prefer and focus more on wahdatul wujud and treat the concept of wahdatush Shuhud only as a matter of respect of the arguments presented by Shaikh Alif Saani. 

    'Barailvis' support Shah Waliullah, Ahmad Sarhandi only for their mystical and sunnah attributes. As for their ideas of war, no "Brailvis" support them in today’s context, and this can practically be seen. All "Barailvis" including Tahirul Qadri condemn terrorism and fatwas of wahhabism that call for killing all non-wahabi Muslims. During the urs of Ala Hazrat, lakh of ulemas gathered and issued a brief fatwa against terrorism. The only call of their ulemas has convinced all Brailvi citizens to remain peaceful and describe ISIS cults as misguided and kharijites.

    It is truth that they prevent their followers from sitting with wahabis and deobandis, not for the purpose of inciting violence but for saving the gullible Muslims from being misguided and brainwashed by wahabis and deobandi ideologues. Already tablighi jamaat and wahabis have turned Indian Muslims into anti-Sufis.

    The ‘Brailvis’ still compose and hear sufi songs known as ‘naat’ in praise of the beloved Prophet [peace be upon him] and as ‘manqabat’ in praise of sufis and saints.

    The ‘Brailvis’ are far from politics and with no support of funds are deeply restricted to their khanqahs, mazars, and madarsas. In my opinion they are not opportunists as, I think, many can be exposed.

    Mazameer is a kind of music strictly forbidden in the book of Shaikh Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia, but there arose differences of opinion regarding sama’ in later period. To Sufism, sama’ which was purely for remembrance of Allah Almighty and praise of the beloved Prophet peace be upon him was and is allowed. The kind of sama’ which has become more professional than mystical and which even disturbs the deep meditation and pure realization of Allah Almighty is disliked by them. However this much difference has nothing to do with intolerance.

    In case of A. R. Rahman’s music, the first thing to note is that music is his business and he can never display the real rhythm of Sufism’s sama’. The “Brailvis” should not take this matter to the protest, leaving the matter of his intention up to Allah Almighty.

  • We used to but when we came to know how Muslims are continually working towards establishing Islamic rule by clear population explosion etc, how they hate govt chosen by Majority, how they support terrorists, we backtracked.

    To understand Muslims, please read following verses from the Quran.
    • 9:5, 3:151, 4:95, 5:33, 8:12, 8:39, 8:67, 9:14, 9:29, 9:73, 9:111, 21:44, 25:52, 47:3-4, 48:29, 61:4, 66:9 (all preaching violence)
    • 98:6, 8:55, 7:176, 7:179, 9:28, 23:55, 5:60 (all dehumanizing non-muslims)
    • 56:12-40 (non-muslims to hell and Muslims to heaven to enjoy sex and wine)
    • 30:45, 4:56 (Allah does not love unbelievers)
    •18:103-106 (It doesn't matter how many good deeds an unbeliever does, he will go to eternal hell). Here follower of all other religions are called unbelievers.
    • 10:100, 36:7-10 (Allah prevents unbelievers from understanding)
    • 58:22, 4:144, 5:51, 3:118, 4:101, 86:15 (Non-muslims should not be taken as friends)
    • 10:68-69, 5:13, 11:14, 29:17, 4:48, 40:12, 3:82 (other religions are cursed by Allah).
    • 9:30, 4:76, 8:60, 66:9, 9:73, 9:123 (people of other religions are to be violently punished in this world)

    *These verses can be searched using Google. There are many more such verses in Hadith and Sira. Without reading Quran, Hadith and Sira, you cannot understand Muslims.*

  • श्रीस्वामीसमर्थाय नमःDear Shri Bilhan Kaul Sir Namaskar With Full Regards Sir.
    1. Congratulations for being Forthright and absolutely Truthful. In fact of there are more Human Muslims they must stand up and revolt against Inhuman Commands given in the Koran. Lord Benting stopped the Idiotic practice of " Sati "
    by putting a legal ban. So Human Muslims like you must come together and denounce Inhuman Commands given in Koran and rise against Maulavees if any found preaching these Inhuman Commands.
    Thanking you Sir

  • @Arshad Andrabi But why are you keen that others must follow. Show your keenness to yourself. You are entitled to hold your opinions. But why are you preaching. Is it because you know very well propaganda has played an important role in Islam's spread. And sword too.

  • Prophet pbuh & his companions are the role model of real Sufis.they follow the command of Quran & Sunnah.jihad in its right perspective invigorates human values in a randomized society.there is no place for writers to misquote Islam to please non-believers.

  • Don't try to Create confusion Mr manzoor. Ideology of sufism is love and peace as per teachings of Islam and sufism is a way to present Islamic perspective among people and jihad is mandatory against the evils of society. Understand pseudo Muslim or liberal Muslim.

    By Ajoy Dutta - 3/20/2018 1:52:03 AM

  • Islam doesn't need any admonition from any sultan to cleanse it of this or that.A complete code of conduct, encompassing the whole gamut of life and fully equipped to meet and solve the problems humanity at large is afflicted with.islam is by its nature multidimensional and addresses every aspect of human life.The sovereignty lies with Allah alone,and he alone should prescribe the Doe's and songs for his creatures. Islam in order to make itself prevail adopts no coercive methods, and gives full rights to human beings to profess this faith with dignity.

    Dear Shri Iqbal Husain Sir Namaskar With Full Regards Sir.
    1. I have read from the Internet that Koran Commands its followers to Convert Idolators by force or Kill them if they refuse to convert. Apart from this the whole history of Islam is fully soaked with the blood of Idolators massacred by Muslims. Don't you this was most Inhuman action having no parallel anywhere.

    By Vasant Narayan Deshmukh - 3/20/2018 1:49:51 AM

  • @Vasant Narayan Deshmukh Would you please quote from Quran to prove your point. Please also describe the context .

    By Hasham Bhai Memon - 3/20/2018 1:49:31 AM

  • @Ksn Sukumaran nothing is irrelevant . still there is almost 100% reservation for the post of pujari / mahant in favor of one caste. charity distribution is also cornered by one caste. first reform your faith by promoting SC ST to the higher varna . if not all at least few of them can be promoted

    By Iqbal Husain - 3/20/2018 1:48:40 AM

  • These are irrelevant today in Hinduism. Islam continues with the primitive concepts. In any case, proof of the pudding is in it's eating. If violence and bloodshed is the outcome, it is high time the faith undergoes change. The right thinking people must fearlessly confront the priests.

    By Ksn Sukumaran - 3/20/2018 1:48:16 AM

  • @Vasant Narayan Deshmukh have you read about your history . shambhuka versus Kshatriyas mabbtles in which unlimited number of kshatrias were killed . about murder of shambhuka . countless battles mentioned in mahabharatha vedas etc. you takled about shivaji. do you you that manuvadies were not ready to crown shivaji as a kind because he was not a Kshatriya. persecution of shivaji's children by manuvadies is a legend
    By Iqbal Husain - 3/20/2018 1:47:29 AM

  • श्रीस्वामीसमर्थाय नमः
    @Dear Shri Latif Ahmad Sir Namaskar With Full Regards Sir.
    1. Kindly read history of Islam fully Soaked with the blood of Idolators massacred by Muslims because they refused to convert to Islam. I have read from Internet the Commands given in Koran to convert Idolators by force or Kill them if they refuse to convert. Further if any Muslim leaves Islam and joins another Religion then he must be killed immediately. I read in News Paper a few years back that a Muslim person there had married a Christian Lady and he became a Christian. Then he remained in hiding for 16 years. When this came to the notice of the people they wanted to kill him but luckily he could go to the U. S. Consulate and was thus saved. Our King Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj who got caught by the Most Cruel Mughal King Aurangzeb. He asked Sambhaji Maharaj to become a Muslim. Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj refused to convert. So he tortured so much to his death as was none ever tortured in the Whole world. But very valiantly Sambhaji Maharaj suffered all the torture but never gave up his resolve. Even today if all Muslims may not be terrorists All terrorists are Muslims only. Islam has thrown away all Human Norms. This is the Inhuman history of Islam. Anyone who knows this history of Islam doesn't need to know if any good things are given in Koran at all. Thanking you Sir.

    By Vasant Narayan Deshmukh - 3/20/2018 1:46:13 AM

  • Dear Vasant Narayan Deshmukh plz understand Quran .according to Quran there is no force to convert others in to Islam Quran teaches us tolerance this image of negative is created by anti muslim force
    By Latif Ahmad - 3/20/2018 1:45:33 AM

  • We used to but when we came to know how Muslims are continually working towards establishing Islamic rule by clear population explosion etc, how they hate govt chosen by Majority, how they support terrorists, we backtracked.
    To understand Muslims, please read following verses from the Quran.
    • 9:5, 3:151, 4:95, 5:33, 8:12, 8:39, 8:67, 9:14, 9:29, 9:73, 9:111, 21:44, 25:52, 47:3-4, 48:29, 61:4, 66:9 (all preaching violence)
    • 98:6, 8:55, 7:176, 7:179, 9:28, 23:55, 5:60 (all dehumanizing non-muslims)
    • 56:12-40 (non-muslims to hell and Muslims to heaven to enjoy sex and wine)
    • 30:45, 4:56 (Allah does not love unbelievers)
    •18:103-106 (It doesn't matter how many good deeds an unbeliever does, he will go to eternal hell). Here follower of all other religions are called unbelievers.
    • 10:100, 36:7-10 (Allah prevents unbelievers from understanding)
    • 58:22, 4:144, 5:51, 3:118, 4:101, 86:15 (Non-muslims should not be taken as friends)
    • 10:68-69, 5:13, 11:14, 29:17, 4:48, 40:12, 3:82 (other religions are cursed by Allah).
    • 9:30, 4:76, 8:60, 66:9, 9:73, 9:123 (people of other religions are to be violently punished in this world)

    *These verses can be searched using Google. There are many more such verses in Hadith and Sira. Without reading Quran, Hadith and Sira, you cannot understand Muslims.*

  • Why Mr. Bilhan Kaul,on one side you pretend to be atheist,and on the other side you are on a mission "Ghar wapsi".plz show some respect for true history. No one in the past enforced conversion on our ancestors. With a huge following round the globe,do you 
    By M Amin Shah - 3/19/2018 11:49:20 AM

  • And theists struggle with basic questions of how universe works. Have you not heard it anywhere Masroor Islam. That people who believe in God have nowhere to go. Because they don't understand complexity that is why they believe in God. Again it is demonstration that you were ordered to believe. You have no original thought
    By Bilhan Kaul - 3/19/2018 11:48:29 AM

  • And tell me my dear,who imposed theism in you. Outsiders. Who told you be afraid of God otherwise we will kill you. Have you any choice?And that too to be theist. Tell something new,we have already heard this lozic. Because as I told you this type of lozic comes from under exposure. If you are thesit how your forefathers were nudged away from it. They too were Godly. Explain how forefathers of Geelani made your ancestors to be frightened due to God and also to make their stay comfortable in Kashmir,using Islam as prop.
    By Bilhan Kaul - 3/19/2018 11:48:12 AM

  • And when you proudly claim that you do not believe in God, you know it at once made me think of you as very stupid and ordinary. Atheists struggle with the very basic questions about life. I hope you introspect and question your atheism, that is very easy to do for now.

    By Masroor Islam - 3/19/2018 11:47:28 AM

  • I don't believe in God. Why are you frightening me?I know your ancestors were frightened by it. And used it as instrument to your ancestors
    By Bilhan Kaul - 3/19/2018 11:46:54 AM

  • @Masroor Islam You are posing rational and irrational at one go. Pretty obvious. You thought,oh no, I am arrogant enough. To bend others to your will. We know that your forefathers were helpless enough. And this is not to score points. Because I may not understand other subjects,but I understand history perfectly well. You are trying to show I have other things to worry other than religion. I respect that. But your ancestors were not allowed that luxry.

    2." Why are you making a concious effort to say that I am reverted?"
    Because you sound to assume that I must be oppologetic about Islam?
    Don't waste your time with me now. I will by the way take a look at what you would have to say! Bye

  • Come on, Masroor Islam,why have you fallen silent? Obviously those who browbeated your ancestors told you,you need not to worry. Others have no arguments. But if you beat me in arguments,I will felicitate you. Pretty obvious, you have no experience outside your circle
    By Bilhan Kaul - 3/19/2018 11:44:44 AM

  • @Masroor Islam  You are bound to stand by it. It is normal in majority. Go and tell people you are reverting to original local customs. And your life would be in danger. And if I announce I will lose my faith,no one bothers. And it seems you have not met any man of my experience. Go through my posts. And by the way conversion is conversion. Why are you guilty?Why are you making conscious effort to say that I am reverted. It is not your language.
    By Bilhan Kaul - 3/19/2018 11:44:04 AM

    By Bilhan Kaul - 3/19/2018 11:42:28 AM

  • And I know how they reverted en-masse!! Out of free will. May be even my grand grand grand parents reverted to Islam someday. I am proud that they did.
    By Masroor Islam - 3/19/2018 11:42:01 AM

    By Masroor Islam - 3/19/2018 11:41:41 AM

  • Islam will win and you will lose. Is Islam about sprituality or is it about cricket match. But yes. You have lost yourself. Go to archives and see it how poor peasants were converted in ancient Kashmir. So others victory became your victory. Quite a lozic

  • Iqbal Husain, due want to follow our Parushram culture and Vedas culture, than we would like to see you as asurs, like samelsly for centuries you call as kafir and kill us as well.

    Our relgion is evolving religion, starts from Matshya Avtar to human forms, and still evolving, not like you and Allah tells to kill humans, 

    Shameless Muslim, stagnant since started their relgion 1400 years ago and kill millions of humans on name of blood sucking Allah with his Paigmbwr Mohammad.

    You know Sultan Shahin is doing great job, re-writing the history, may be false but will bring the illusion of peace of Islam and deciving non-Muslim. actually he helping you extrimist Muslims.

    He did not find goodness in his wife Hindu  religion, so you will never find any series of articles on Hinduisim through him, so do not worry Iqbal Husain, he helping, he just about to became another Zakir Naik, in start Zakir Naik was talking about similarity of relgions and all goody, goody, than he start to do mock, sultan Shahin is doing same but he added, he is taking new route, he use Muslim victimisim approach, which creates sympathy but he is on your extremist side only.

    He talking of Pluralism, but  Capital "P" is approach, that means Islam is best, proven with different angle with his brigade of writers.

    Dear brothers first of all this chap runs away from debate. till date he never entered any debate. just like abu lahab he foments hate and venom and when cornered he goes into deep silence. history seen many such pharoahs , abu lahabs and he is one of their tribe. SORRY I CANNOT BE CIVIL TO A PERSON WHO ATTACKS QURAN AND hadees .

    firstly muslims of india are asking him to share and disclose some of his personal details 
    (1) Mr Sultan shaheen you married twice . you divorced your first wife. did you divorced her through triple talaq method or other methods. disclose through full evidence and papers. being a PREACHER OF SO CALLED MODERNISM you must share personal life too. 
    (2) after divorce did you provide financial help to your ex wife and children . so called progressives believe in giving life long support to their ex wives and children. provide proof.
    (3) you proclaim yourself as anti wahabi but you never condemned saudi atrocities in yemen. Why because you do not want to hurt or speak up against USA , israeili interest. like a true imposter sultan shaheen talks and talks endlessly on democracy free speech but never spoken against murder of democracy by general SISSI of Egypt. many journalist of al jazeera channel and others are still in jail of this blood thirsty general you remain mum. because blood is thicker then water. you do not want to write against manuvadi , israili , or USA interest. all your drama for toleraance free speech is natwar lal type trick. 
    (4) sometimes you proclaim yourself as a patriot , perhaps on account of hallucinations . yet your web sites previous issues had insulted , mocked esteemed freedom fighters like Moulana Abdul kalam azad, khan abdul ghaffar khan etc. 
    (5) you falsely accuse theologians that "they did not condemn terror". my counter question is to you this.
    (A) did you or any blog of new age islam condemn terrorist like free syrian army comprising elements of al aqeeda , perverts like isis. did you ever condemn USA assisted terrorist Fetulliah gulian devastating turkey. No you never did it . 
    (B) if you have any elementary scholarship honesty left in you then read retired IG police SM Mushfiq book on subject of terrorism " who killed karkare" published by pahros media delhi.
    (6) you adore your web site with pictures of asgar ali engineer , prof qadri great sufi thinker and wahiduddin khan etc. you project yourself as a "SUFI". inform us about one sufi , aulia whom you are following . just name one. as mentioned in quran MUNAFIQ cannot misled a believer . you in spite of your bigotry , fanaticism and blind hatred for islam you are logically defeated , smashed left , right and center. . 
    (7) consult a dictionary and try to fathom words which you had used like "supremacist " etc.

  • Religion is just a ladder to God, above religions. Sams-e-Tabrez and Rumi began from Islam and transcended it. Though fanatics killed Shams but he rose to divine height. If Muslims accept that their path is just one of the true paths to the God; all others are equally true for their followers, peace will reign in the world.

  • In fact terrorism has grabbed the best part of the world and it has become a global problem. It has emerged out due to the influence of the politics and economic. Petrol in the middle east is one of the causes. Ideology is secondary. The followers of Islam should be educated themselves to see what is right true just noble and beautiful.

    Wherever their population exceeds ten percent they start nuisance of all types.and blame the peaceful people.
    Who is disturbing them in maldeves,who annihilated Afghanistan,why they massacred all Hindus from Kashmir.
    Their blood is barbaric, and satanic.they can not live like gentlemen.

  • The conclusion out of this post n reactions/ comments leads to merely one point that whatever Holy Quran says is absolutely right. In the light of Holy Quran all "ism" are useless. What to talk of Wahabis. Ahlehadis etc.etc.

    Namaskar Sir.
    1. Terrorism is the Soul of Islam. Koran Commands its followers to Convert Idolators by force or Kill them if they refuse to convert. Further if any Muslim leaves Islam and joins another Religion then he must be killed immediately. So there can't be any reforms in Islam.

    Namaskar Sir.
    1. Since you are talking about " New Age Islam ", loudly denounce the most Inhuman Commands given in Koran to Muslims "To Convert Idolators by force or Kill them if they refuse to convert " and " To kill any Muslim who leaves Islam and joins another Religion." All of you need to understand that "All Religions including Island are "Man Made Religions ". I being a Hindu have No Religion but I have many Dharmas like PitruDharm i.e. Naturally Arising Duties of a Father. My other Dharmas are पतीधर्म बंधुधर्म स्वधर्म and so on and on depending upon the relationship with others. 
    Thanking you Sir.

  • Anyone's wrong perception on religion never eliminates truths and facts of Creator and Creation!! Only one religion of human being is been prescribed by Creator since Advant of Adam and Eve to this earth....All prophets tought same basic aspect to live happily but selfish peoples made it different to name as different religions, sects and reigns!!!
    By DrNurul Islam - 3/13/2018 11:13:56 PM

  • Followers of Sufi sect are still the most tolerant & and most devoted group of Islam, who hold no grudge against other sects or religions . They still visit shrines, take Tazia Procession , observe fateha ceremony on special occasions of Islamic calender . They freely intermix with people of other sects & religions.
    The problem lies in the fact , they are mostly poor or lower middle class people, who have very little access to Islamic knowledge. Sufi scholars try to teach them very advanced aspect of Islamic theology which is not properly understood by the followers . So such teachings hardly make any impact . The shift from Sufism to Wahhabism may probably be a phenomena which is attributed to overburdening its followers with excessive rituals & perhaps prevalent amongst small chunk of wealthy followers.The poor & middle class followers are selfcontent in their limited resources & occupation. What they need is smaller doses of Islamic teaching in simple language & simplified version of Sufism. Rest assured, Sufis are dedicated to Unity of Allah , Unity of Religion & Unity of Mankind.
    Another distraction comes from people who equate them too with extremist version of Islam propagated by wealthy nations for political hegemony. 
    Give Sufis some space in religious matters of mainstream Islam. 
    Finally , baring some big madarsas ,Sufi madarsas are run with great difficulty. In such madarsas , only very basic aspects of Islam is taken care of. 
    And What has been said in the past should be seen in context with the circumstances prevailing in that time. Sufi Islam is self adjusting and keeps violence at bay without compromising basic teachings of Islam.As far as , purging Sufism of some aberration that has been suggested , let me tell you, it is applicable to all other sects & religions .

  • I hope one answer will fit to his lengthy question.after9/11,did Islam shrink in size or grown to multi folds,the answer is growing300times faster than any other religions.That means Islam and Muslims are in right direction as directed by Mohammed Rasool (saw )*as instructed by Allah.
    Try not to confuse us, try to clear those minds who didn't have an idea about Islam and Muslim.
    Insha Allah let's pray to Allah for peace and harmony of all Muslims who lives in this world and yet to come.Ameen.

  • No Muslim, a so called Wahabi or a pacifist Sufi can ignore the Quranic injection ' inna deena indAllahi Islam ' whoever contradicts this verse shall lose his /her faith. So, the sufis and others are on the same page while they may differ in their respective approaches to abet and defend their faith. 
    Now, the advocates of anti jehad campaign shall find no supporters among the believing Muslims. It is the same group that finds itself sandwiched between their cultural identities and the satanic western powers. To appease the latter, they want to compromise on the basic tenets of Islam. They shall continue to feel frustrated as there will be no takers of their interpretations of the religion of Islam.

  • It has been narrated on the authority of Jabir b. Samura that the Prophet (ﷺ) said: This religion will continue to exist, and a group of people from the Muslims will continue to fight for its protection until the Hour is established. [Sahih Muslim 4953], Inshallah we will remain until the final hour, put as much efforts as you can we will never cease to exist, we are successful in targeting every false ideology sufism is one of them, Alhamdullillah many sufis accepted islam, this campaign against sufism will never stop rather intensify day by day to crush this evil ideology which kuffar see as a hope to manipulate islam, this hope will be their greatest nightmare inshallah.

    By Khalilur Rahman - 3/11/2018 8:09:36 AM

  • We should remember that the Quran does not call Islam as another religion or faith system existing alongside other so-called religious sects. Instead it calls Islam as 'the only Deen or way of life chosen by the Creator denoted by the name Allah, and it's for the whole mankind. This is the key message Real Sufism is based on.

  • The situation we are living in is different from the past when some scholars nurtured the idea of offensive fighting. Sometimes offensive fighting attire the uniform of defense, as some examples can be easily tabled here in which some countries have made offensive attack on Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Burmese Muslims under the pretext of defense. The attackers can be seen presenting this war as defensive while the innocent Muslims, whose houses were demolished, whose children were killed, who had been left with no one to support, present this war as offensive. Henceforth the idea of offensive or defensive fighting needs to be taken with great care.

    There were some scholars in the past who, when used the term of offensive fighting, used to mean defensive fighting, as, according to them, their opponents were preparing for harming their countries and interests, and if they had not adopted this ‘offensive fighting’, they could not have saved their countries, communities or interests. Personally I do not support offensive fighting but how to deal with it when it is waged under the pretext of ‘defensive fighting’.

    In our age, things have changed much from the time in which Imam Ghazali, Shah Waliullah, Ibn Taymiyya spent their life. And the scholars of Islam who have studied the methodologies to interpret Islamic rulings know well that the Islamic rulings, especially those which are contextual and specific, are affected by the changing phase of time. We can count many examples in which we differ from the scholars of the past, not because they were at wrong but because the causes that affected those rulings have changed now and if those scholars had existed today, they would also have supported the changed rulings, and this would have been much in accordance with the maqasid al-sharia that is, welfare of humanity.

    Once I was reading a subject of tampering the old books. I found that the books of those scholars who are followed both by Sufi-oriented Muslims and Wahabis have been tampered and altered. I am not sure as to who altered them, but something I know is that those alterations have been made with the purpose of establishing conformity between those texts and the wahhabi doctrines. For example, Shah Waliullah’s books have been tampered. This subject needs a great length of time to expose those alterations and is not possible in this comment section.

    We have many things to grope in past, but one thing to inculcate into minds of all common readers that we should ensure peaceful coexistence in present with all people of the world.  

    By Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi غلام غوث الصديقي - 3/9/2018 10:12:00 PM

  •  Eloquent message! Muslims must stop calling other sects "heretical". We should have no problems with the beliefs of other sects as long as they are moderate, tolerant, nonviolent, non-coercive, rational and respectful of the beliefs of others. This includes Sufism as much as Salafism, Shiaism as much as Ahmadism.

    Also religions must keep themselves at a safe distance from the political power structure of the country. And vice versa.
