Islamic Society

How remarkable then that a young non Arab woman from the West should tell us what Islam is, however much she was misguided to Arabinise it – innocently, with couple of Arabic words; JazaakAllah?...

While we Muslims do seem to value the building of Muslim schools, we must value even more so the teachers that work there, as well as those Muslim teachers employed in state schools hoping to attain likeminded outcomes. We continue to do both ourselves, our younger generation and our religion, a great disservice if we do not appropriately value Muslim teachers, or realise their paramount role in the community...

 

When a delegation of Christians from Yemen came to Madina to discuss bilateral issues, the doors of Masjid-e-Nabvi were opened for the delegate members to pray according to their own religious beliefs. This is a wonderful example of promoting interfaith harmony and ensuring respect to all religions...

 

The abandonment of Indonesian principles of diversity was made evident when it jailed the ethnically Chinese and Christian former governor of Jakarta, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama. In 2016 “Ahok” questioned a political rival’s interpretation of the Koran and was humiliatingly jailed for blasphemy...

 

The French sociologist Emile Durkheim emphasised the role of religion in enhancing the ability to endure suffering. Discussing the reason why suicides have been rare in Islamic societies in the past, he quoted from the Qur’an: “We estimated death among you, hastened it for some and delayed for others”...

On 12 August, a 23-year-old Kashmiri student in Jamia Nagar, a locality in Delhi, was asked to vacate his three-bedroom flat along with two of his flatmates who are also Kashmiri. He had been residing there for two years. While the landlord told him that this was for conducting house repairs, the student suspected that he was being evicted because he is a Kashmiri....

 

The madrasas are giving birth to a traditional, backward looking leadership while the secular education is shaping a different leadership. The division is complete and compartmentalized. Each section respects the invisible contract of not breeching into the territory of the other. Madrasa educated Ulema with sectarian outlook always express opinions about Islam even if sectarian and hold sway over the masses....

It makes sense to latch Mujahid’s Rahmat ul lil Alamin policy to the UAE’s tolerance manifesto. However, compassion towards religious minorities in Malaysia, especially how Shia Muslims are perceived and treated, is still a work-in-progress that our state and federal authorities persist in ignoring.....

Liaqat Ali Khan’s Objective Resolution, Khatm-i-Nabuwat Movement of 1950’s, Bhutto’s role and the Zia’s policy of Islamization strengthened religio-political stratums. Many of these assemblages have empathies with Talibans or Al-Qaida and eager to implement radicalise ideologies, which can be devastating for Country....

Parents must work hard so as to provide adequately for children in inheritance. It is reported in a Hadith, “it is better for parents to leave their children adequately-provided (financially) than to leave them in poverty”....

After Umno and PAS signed their so-called “Piagam Muafakat Nasional” (national unity charter), they talked about how it will be non-discriminatory and of benefit to all Malaysians. Now we see their true colours...

 

As an official serving in a country that adopts a democratic system, Razi should understand the essence of democracy itself. Things he has done that are contrary to democracy, such as unilateral decision-making, should not happen....

 

And, when he threw at Khan the deadline of “two days” — in which Khan was to bow out of power or face “arrest” at the hands of his madrasa followers — everyone knew that the Maulana was taking on the “Idara” in extremis, which neither of the two parties would be able to do....

 

Urdu was also the first literary language for many of those who also wrote in Hindi. For instance, Upendranath Ashk and Munshi Premchand were famous Urdu authors before they even began to write in Hindi....

 

As a Muslim who has travelled extensively in the Muslim majority world, living in Saudi Arabia and visiting Pakistan for over four decades, I have seen how the device is used to introduce and enforce lethal modern-day blasphemy laws....

Sharia law has a long tradition in this part of the world anyway. It was practiced in the Sokoto Caliphate and Kanem-Bornu African trading empire prior to British colonial rule in the 19th and 20th centuries....

The Islamisation of law is hardly criticised within Brunei, unlike in neighbouring Malaysia. This is because of three unique elements resulting in an arguable lack of internal discourse....

 

In Iraq, these issues are not an ideological luxury; they are a societal necessity. There are over a million war widows in Iraq, many of whom have no access to welfare or assistance....

 

Lo! Once again Nobel Prizes for Sciences have been awarded for this year – although by one of the biggest armament and killing industries of the world. May be in next generation a Muslim might be awarded one, or at least share in one, as did Dr Abdus Salam, about a generation ago. However here too the churches intervened, just as did other churches previously; and a practicing Muslim scientist to the core was declared a non-Muslim; usurping what the scripture itself says is the Creator's sole right and prerogative....

Among the most high-profile killings relating to blasphemy was that of the Governor of Punjab, Salman Taseer, came forward in the support of Aasia Bibi, the first woman to be accused of Blasphemy....

 

I find myself, from time to time, recalling that mythical Arab nation of my youth, and with every remembrance comes the realisation that today the very geography of our soul has become irreparably skewered....

 

Bridge-builders come at the issue from the opposite direction by encouraging universal appreciation for Islam and insisting that they alone are capable of deciphering the true meaning of Islamic texts....

There is no constitutional responsibility of the President to lead prayers or to officiate religious ceremonies because the President is not the Ameer-ul-Momineen and we have stoutly resisted any such attempts to make an elected constitutional office into the office of a Caliph...

 

Arabs love power and they will do anything, including suicide bombing and cold blood murder to cling to power directly or indirectly. That is why democracy in the Arab world knows no  voting in a democratic sense. It is a mere matter of nomenclature....

Though Khuda Hafiz is not exactly frowned upon by the Arabs, an undercurrent of the supremacy of Persian and Arabic languages has always existed right from the inception of Islam, which came into being a little over 1,400 years ago....
