    Islamic Ideology

    “Wahhabi is the guiding ideology behind modern Islamist terrorism. In the late 18th century a violently intolerant re-interpretation of Islam took root in the Arabian Desert. Its followers became known after their founder (Sheikh Muhammad Najdi ibn Abd-al Wahhab), as Wahhabi. The creed was then exported to India and its north-west frontier Afghanistan.”...

    The state has tried to appropriate ‘Sufism’ for the reasons of ‘nationalist identity’ of Islam and has several times tried to promote it as a form of ‘liberal Islam.’ But the government official claiming to say that it was not the ‘true’ form of Islam and that in itself creates a problematic situation. As the state’s ideology stems from postcolonial culture....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Mr. President,

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

    Mr. President,

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

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

    Mr. President,

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

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

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

    The other defining characteristics of the “moderates” are to be seen to be questioning the religion, Quran, Allah and the Prophet. They make a virtue of it. They define “literalism” as belief in the entire Quran and make a virtue of arguing for the excising of many verses from the Quran.  The western society is paranoid of Shariat and Jehad. These “moderates” therefore reject the verses of the Quran on these subjects to become acceptable.  Such people will surely sink deeper and deeper into denial until they reach a point of no return. There is neither hope nor cure for them and the word of Allah will come true....

    But importantly, the adhesion of Arab-centric “Culture and Religion”, that is, attar, beard, camels, dress mode etc, and church, clergy, icons, apocrypha, rituals etc. with that of ad-Deen that is, the Quranic Codes and Commands, must be dissolved, for humanity's sake, so that mankind follows what was promulgated by God's Messengers over millennia and passed down all the way to Messenger Muhammad....

    A number of scholars and exegetes misinterpreted those verses enjoining good behaviour with non-Muslims as abrogated though the Quran does not have any list of abrogated verses within the text of the Quran. There are a number of verses that prevent Muslims from committing violence against non-Muslims and ask them to convey the message of the Quran peacefully and by engaging with them in dialogue....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    A War on Terror has been raging for 17 years now but we are no closer to defeating Islamist terror. Jihadism continues to attract Muslim youth. This is because the world has not paid enough attention to the ideology of Islamism and Jihadism.

    Mainstream Muslims have considered Islam a spiritual path to salvation, one of the many. Islam aims at reforming society for a peaceful, harmonious, pluralist existence. However, due to certain historical factors, the theology and jurisprudence of Islam that evolved in the 8th and 9th centuries (CE), present Islam as a political, totalitarian ideology of supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance and gender discrimination. It is this theology of violence, exclusivism and world-domination that is taught in madrasas and sustains Islamism. But despite the Islamist violence against peaceful Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the community is still not focussed on the need for evolving a counternarrative of Islam.

     It is imperative that Muslim countries that have signed the UN Charter look into the issue urgently and work towards developing a new theology of peace, pluralism and gender justice. While several countries like Morocco and now Saudi Arabia appear to be moving in this direction, the one country that has made a solid contribution is Turkey. In a decade-long exercise 100 Turkish scholars have managed to limit the number of authentic ahadith to just 1600, out of over 10,000, and provide each hadith with context and suitable interpretation. This book of authentic Hadith has been provided to all mosques in Turkey but I hope it is made available to the global Muslim community in their own languages as soon as possible.

    Allama Iqbal, a poet-philosopher of the South Asian sub-continent had called for the reconstruction of religious thought in Islam almost a hundred years ago. Let us at least start working on it now....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Jihadists interpret a famous verse from Surah al-Baqrah, like many other verses, as applicable to Muslims even today. This makes the Quranic verse appear self-contradictory. Jihadist ideologues have taken the word “Fitnah” to mean “kufr” (infidelity) and “shirk” (associating someone with God) with an aim to kill all non-Muslims and even Muslims who indulge in shirk (in their eyes by venerating idols or visiting shrines etc). This requires a fresh reading of this Qur'anic verse with a deeper insight into its linguistic implications and Qur'anic exegeses. The anti-terror Barelwi fatwa does quote the same verse in its refutation to the terrorist views, but it doesn’t discuss it in detail…….

    Islam and Politics

    Ghannouchi finds no contradiction between democracy and the traditional Islamic tenets—governing the relationship between the political authority and the people—such as Ijtihad (independent interpretive reasoning), Ijma (consensus), Ba‘yah (oath of allegiance), and Shura (consultation).....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Note: As articles on NewAgeIslam.com have pointed out again and again, instructions given in any war lapse with the end of the war. The war-time verses in the holy Quran not only instruct Muslims to kill, but also motivate them, announcing rewards for fighting and punishment for not fighting, i.e., sitting at home, without any valid excuse. All this is quire natural. But at the same time Muslims must also understand that these verses were meant for those wars in the7th century CE and cannot be applicable to us today in the 21st century, 14 centuries after the wars that gave the Prophet and his companions’ victory, establishing Islam on the face of earth. Now our job is simply to see that God’s universal and eternal messages in Quran are available to all the people in their own languages, so they can comprehend it and learn from it. The contextual verses are a part of our glorious history and should be left there, so that we learn from them how near-insurmountable obstacles the Prophet (saw) faced in establishing Islam and leaving us his magnificent legacy. Violent extremists among us have and will continue to use and misuse these contextual verses for their own ends. Let us Muslims not fall in the trap. – Editor

    But what has come more bluntly in the analysis of the Pakistani media reports, which are based less on proper journalistic investigation than on vociferous emotionalism and a feeling of revenge, is the deep-rooted doctrine of ‘Ghazwat-ul-Hind’, an Islamic expedition against India which is reported in one of the six most authentic collections of Hadith compilations (Sunan al-Nasa’i). Orya Maqbool Jaan, an ultra-puritanical Islamist writer who is a regular columnist with the leading Urdu daily Jang, looks at the Indian surgical strike as the beginning of the battle that the Prophet (pbuh) predicted to his companion, Hazrat Abu Huraira (r.a) i.e. Ghazwat-ul-Hind…
