Islamic Society

Hanafism, which started to emerge in the 9th and 10th centuries stretched its teachings across Central Asia and nowadays is one of the most widespread Sunni schools of law in the world....

 

Did Imam Hussain (also spelled Husayn and Hussein) sacrifice his life and the lives of his noble family for “Shias” only or for “Shia Islam”? Is commemoration of the tragedy of Karbala a lesson for Shias only...

 

For some, the religion has been influenced by norms and traditions. It is shocking when you witness the rise of vice while virtues continue to fall asunder. It has been long since I met someone who perfectly adheres to moral standards...

 

“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?...

For Bosnia, the debate over Saudi influence comes at a particularly challenging time. Around 300 Bosnians had joined the ranks of foreign fighters for ISIS in Iraq and Syria, among the highest per capita rates from any nation....

Islamic Concept Of Marriage
Islamic Concept Of Marriage
S. Arshad, New Age Islam

Thus the concept of marriage as a life long union between a man and woman exists since the primitive age and subsequent religions put their seal of recognition on the sanctity of the institution of marriage. …

 At present, Turkey’s status as a modern, Muslim, secular republic with its ideologically polarised and segmented society remains contested....

 

We must view verses in the Quran from a lingual, social, philosophical as well as jurisprudential lens in order to understand the divine intent behind the legislations that they carry, and not from the lens of Meccan heritage or Arabic culture that applies the laws of its backward culture onto the Torah, Bible and Quran....

The persecution exercised against Muslims increased, especially after the death of Prophet Muhammad’s beloved wife, Khadijah and his uncle, Abu Talib. At a certain point, it was necessary to look for a new soil to plant the seed of Islam, to spread the word of Allah, and to practice Islam in a secure and receptive environment....

 

A wealth tax like Zakat may seem unorthodox to the point of being unworkable, but it is already implemented in many Muslim-majority countries whose economies are not completely dissimilar to those in Europe and North America.....

Let’s take it upon ourselves to get our act together, and be educated and economically sound. That alone can get us on the same platform as anyone else. We should lead by example as instructed by our own Prophet....

I have strong convictions that as a person who dedicates his life in the field of Da’wah, one of your main goals is to get non-Muslims come closer to Islam. Unfortunately, in Malaysia, your presence is doing the opposite. It is counterproductive....

Eid prayers usually happen in an open public space like a park and with a permit — not on a public street. Park prayers allow Muslims to gather together on a day the celebrates community, without being a public nuisance to non-Muslim neighbours....

The Quran discouraged it by telling men that a wife who they did not like might be carrying some divine good for them, and the Prophet declared it to be “the worst of permitted things in the eyes of God.” …

Humans do not have any right to be cruel to animals, just as they cannot be cruel to other humans. They can, however, for the sake of consuming their meat, kill animals under certain conditions. These conditions have been prescribed in the Quran. These are hunger and specific sacrifice....

Since Tunisians toppled their dictator in 2011, they have avoided handing absolute authority to either the secularists or Islamists, forcing them to collaborate in a delicate balance of power....

 

As Saudi Arabia seeks to move economic dependency of hydrocarbons and recognizes the economic potential of Hajj and Umrah, we are likely to see a greater number of Muslims visiting Makkah and Madina....

 

The immigration trend continued under the Islamic Republic as several important rights including religious freedom, freedom of speech, press, and assembly, equal opportunities and women rights were suppressed with the regime’s iron fist....

 

Some retired generals regularly appearing on TV in Pakistan — the army chief is on record saying they are not briefed by the army — have been recommending the “mainstreaming” of religious elements, dubbed “terrorist” at the UN. ..

 

Islam neither allows forced conversion nor accepts the faith of those who are forcibly converted to Islam. Forced conversion can’t create love and faith in one’s heart, as Islamic faith is not related to outward following of rituals, but rather it is a matter of acceptance by heart....

But while that has made them targets of murders and attacks on their mosques, another point of divergence from more mainstream sects is helping them spread. The Ahmadiyya follow a model of international proselytisation more common with Christian missionaries than with Shia or Sunni clerics....

Such is the lot of post-colonial nations. Pakistanis imagining themselves brown idolise fair skin and as a country think of themselves as more beautiful than Africans....

 

Muslims should make alternative arrangements for Friday prayers instead of insisting on offering prayers in public places. They should arrange Friday prayers in their locality mosques. Since the number of people is unaccommodable in most mosques, they should conduct multiple Namaz (two or three Jamats)....

From silly to serious, the range is really amazing. As a member of a Muslim society I must confess that most of this overindulgent invocation of religion doesn’t reflect our seriousness about Islam....

All those who are interested in reconciling the role of religion in private life with the secular imperatives of a modern, democratic state will find much to ponder in Tunisia’s reconstruction of the state over only eight years or so....
