Ishrat Jahan: ‘I Have Fought Many Battles Alone’
Ziya Us Salam

If the husband and wife want to be husband and wife again, who can stop them? In my case, I had filed a case under Section 498 [of the Indian Penal Code], but when my husband promised to be good to me in future, and swore by the Quran, I took back the case. I even paid for his bail. But what did I get in return...

Listen; regarding the possibility of war, it is real. As for the degree of probability, we cannot rule it out, not even for a moment. Because with such a mentality, such an administration... And whatever they say, it's not just Trump, but the Vice-President, the whole of this administration, their vision... You see how some approached the cause of Al-Quds. He approached it with a religious point of view! These things are related to.......

 

All We Want Is an Honest Bill Which Will Keep a Civil Issue within Civil Domain … And Better the Lives of Muslim Women
Sugandha Indulkar

The status of such a woman isn’t clear at all: is she still married because of a Talaq which has been declared void, or is she divorced? How will such thoughtlessly made provisions do any good to anyone – either the oppressed woman, her children, or her family?...

We Can’t Let the India-Pakistan Relationship Be Hostage to Dispute: Husain Haqqani
Vidya Ram

There are many voices in Pakistan and of Pakistanis living in the diaspora that can only be raised effectively outside Pakistan and we hope that these voices will start having a resonance back home. It is important that the discourse on Pakistan that has been streamlined and subject to specific parameters defined by the Pakistani establishment opens up. That people start asking questions that they are not allowed to ask....

 

What Does Islam Say About Interfaith Dialogue?

Thus, Islam's position is that self-knowledge and knowledge of the other are interwoven and complementary, being integrated in an overarching knowledge of God. In that regard, the goal of dialogue in Islam is not to assert one worldview over the other, but, instead, to see the process of dialogue, like all forms of relationship, as a Mirror of Consciousness pointing towards the Divine, eventually allowing for the means of self-realization and in an  ultimate sense realization of God....

Get Tough on Beirut to Rein in Hezbollah Threat
Tony Badran

Hezbollah has vastly upgraded its capabilities. It has tripled the size of its rocket arsenal and increased the accuracy of its missiles (i.e.: the Fateh-110), and will inflict significant damage on Israeli cities and civilian infrastructure in any future war....

 

US Should Pressurise Saudi Arabia to End Its Stance on Radical Islam: Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Radical Islamists are promoting a global world view which is destabilising us. Look at all the civil wars which radical Muslims have started. Bangladesh is well in the frame to become a serious democracy. There are established madrasas in Dhaka where a lot of money is coming from Saudi Arabia and Gulf countries. These seminaries produce people who hack people to death simply because they don’t agree with them....

Will A New Generation of Terrorists Turn to Bitcoin?
Yaya J. Fanusie

If we did see more terrorist interest in using virtual currency for the dark web, I’m not sure this would create any major developments. For example, in 2014, a Virginia teenager who was an Islamic State supporter posted a white paper he wrote encouraging others to fund IS through bitcoin payments. So, this idea of using virtual currencies as a way to support terrorism has been out there for a few years, without it seeming to play a significant role in inspiring others. ....

 

'Education Must Be Muslim Priority'
Frank F Islam

I recognise that many Muslims ~ too many ~ still need to improve their socio-economic life and may be experiencing hostility, prejudice and discrimination. I think the starting point for changing that situation must be with education for those Muslims. Here are some sad facts related to the educational circumstances of Muslims in India: The 2001 Census Report showed that the literacy rate of Indian Muslims was 59.1 per cent. The rate for Muslim males in urban areas was much higher than in rural areas. The rate for females was substantially lower in both areas....

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan Talks on Islam and Peace Building
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

They often conflate Islam with Muslims. I repeatedly stress that Islam and Muslims are two very different things. The foremost source of knowledge about Islam is the Quran. The next source is the Hadith, from which we learn about aspects of the Prophet’s life. Now, according to my study, people generally refer to some battles that the Prophet fought, and on that basis say that Islam is a religion of war, of violence. …

 

‘Supreme Court Has Already Declared Triple Talaq Invalid’: Legal Expert Faizan Mustafa
Faizan Mustafa

Opinions of Abu Hanifa (who established one of the five schools of Islamic jurisprudence, Hanafi) and other jurists given over 1,000 years ago cannot be struck down as unconstitutional. Can we, for instance, ask the Supreme Court to declare (19th century legal philosopher) John Austin’s opinion on sovereignty or, for that matter, the Hindu law-giver Manu’s view as unconstitutional? This cannot and should not be done....

A Matter of Dance or Death: No Religion Asks Women to Be Ashamed Of Their Bodies
Sheema Kermani

Kermani contends that no religion asks women not to stand straight or be ashamed of their bodies. “The minute a woman stands straight, she feels strong and no male can harass her.” What dress a woman wears does not matter; what matters is “her stance, physical being, presence and aura”.....

A dialogue between communities and interacting with one another helps break down myths and creates understanding. It is always good to be open-minded and honest. Apart from the indigenous people of Australia, we are all migrants and share this land. Being isolated is harmful, as it leads to distrust from both sides....

 
On Da'wah and Dialogue
Yusuf Jha, New Age Islam

In the above verse the Qur'an instructs Muslims that as a concomitant to believing in a similar historicity of revelation as the People of the Book they also believe in the same God and accordingly should tell them: ‘Our God (Iilāhunā) and your God (ilāhukum) is One’. The fact that Muslims are instructed to state this as a matter of fact and not as a postulate that needs to be proven is consistent with the Qur'anic world-view that regards Abraham, the patriarch of the Judeo-Christian tradition, alongside other Prophets such as Noah, Moses and Jesus, as being Muslim, i.e. those who submitted themselves to God....

 

Dial-a-Divorce against Spirit of Islam: M J Akbar
M J Akbar

I am asking the Qazis opposing triple Talaq to go research the holy Quran. Look for the future in your holy book. Those Muslim clerics who become obstacles to women's emancipation are against the spirit of the Quran. How can anyone go by triple Talaq which is instant, when it is clearly mentioned in the holy book that one must have consultations?...

Cross-Border LOVE

Difference between Dawah Work and Social Work
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

Difference between Dawah Work and Social Work
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

A basic difference between the two kinds of work—Dawah work and social work—is that in Dawah work, the Dai develops a close relationship with God. While engaged in his work, he remembers God often. He prays to God. He seeks guidance from God. In contrast to this, in social work, the enthusiasm is for bonding with people....

AR Rahman: At Medina, an Imam Said To Me, Music Is the Language to Reach God
AR Rahman

The Imam instantly had a smile on his face, and said, oh, music is, in a way, the language to reach God. And he is from Medina; he's an Imam in Medina. I was stunned, I was expecting him to frown, to change his expression or... (but) nothing like that happened. So when people look at things like that in black and white, they are perhaps just being safe in analysing something that is very complex. It is very complex, but it is also very beautiful...

 

Taking the Lead: To Give Rebirth to All the Great Female and Male Scholars within Islamic Philosophy, Sufism
Cathy Russell

But the legitimacy behind female Imams is of course the same as male Imams.  The one who has knowledge should be able to speak.  The one who’s good in recitation and who knows the rules behind such should be able to lead the prayer.  I think it’s important to understand that the Quran, our sources, are seeing men and women as equal spiritual partners.  And there’s nothing in the religious tradition or in the Quran that does not allow a woman to become an Imam.  Women have the same possibilities as men....

 

‘The Pakistani State Should Not Define People’s Religion for Them’
Farahnaz Ispahani

The process of ‘purifying’ the population did not end there. Pakistan’s Christians and Parsis have gradually emigrated from the country and the exodus continues to this day. Ahmadis were deemed Muslim by the state until 1974 when they were declared non-Muslims for legal purposes through a constitutional amendment....

Shariah with Chinese Characteristics: A Scholar Looks at the Muslim Hui
Matthew S. Erie

The vacuum created by the end of Maoism has led to a commercialization of Chinese society that is in its own way spiritually void. There’s no question that people are searching for meaning. What’s really important is that some people are doing it through Islam....

 

Islam and the West:  ‘The Longest and Most Vicious Confrontation, but not a Clash of Civilisations: An Interview with Daniel Pipes

I see it as only one of several important Islamist movements.

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan on Islam, Dawah and Interfaith Relations
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, New Age Islam

Through my study of the Quran, I have found that Islam’s concept of life is that a person should intellectually develop himself to such an extent that he is able to turn a minus into a plus. I had learnt this principle through my study of Islam. Later, I came to know of an incident of the famous Indian monk Swami Vivekananda. ...

 

Pakistan’s Military Perpetuates an ‘Anti-India’ Narrative: Husain Haqqani
Husain Haqqani

I am a pragmatic moderate and I think that hard-line ideology of all sorts actually hurts human beings. The subcontinent is mired in ideological politics. So, my assessment is very different from my desire. My desire is that people should resolve issues in a pragmatic manner, but at the moment, ideological and emotional politics prevails, that creates the difficulties that you and I are discussing....
