Islamic Society

The two sister’s forceful conversion to Islam has shown how religious zealots turned her body into a mute token of male honour, bereft of the ability to speak for herself. Finally, social workers in Sindh confirm that a portion of these incidents consist of women who willingly leave their homes to marry into Muslim families. Such incidents of female agency also need to be considered when dealing with cases of forced conversion....

In this time of the Muslims practising generosity, compassion and patience, mosques should refrain the broadcast of the loud recitation of the Quran during the Tarawih prayers as it could disturb the neighbourhood. I am sure God can listen even when we recite our prayers softly....

 
Right of Parents and Disobedient Sons in Islam
Right of Parents and Disobedient Sons in Islam
Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

In spiritual observation substantiated by Islamic teachings, one idea comes across that only God Almighty can give our parents their deserving due and reward. However we should do take care of their rights and perform our duties, to the best of our capacity, as the Quran says, “Allah tasks no soul beyond its capacity” (2:286/2:33/6:152/7:42/23:62)....

Very soon after the kidnapping, a video went viral social media in which a Qazi was purportedly exposed solemnizing the Nikah of both the girls. Surprisingly, in another video the minor girls can be seen saying that they accepted Islam of their own free will....

A student killed Prof Khalid Hameed, head of the English department at a Bahawalpur college, because he thought that a mixed gathering of male and female students that was planned to welcome newly enrolled students was un-Islamic. This is a new excuse for taking the life of a fellow Muslim, and a teacher at that....

 

However, this is a very frequent occurrence. Hindu to Muslim conversions in Sindh seem to be exclusively underage girls or women of marriageable age who disappear and later emerge to reveal they had eloped with Muslim men and converted to Islam freely....

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....

 

What could be the logic behind this desire to convert those schools to imam hatip schools? The only logic here is a desire to conservatise the area. There is no need for an imam hatip school, and they are acting on the basis of political motivations rather than educational needs.”...

The religious identity of the Egyptian armed forces has been clear since their reformation after the July 1952 coup d'état. At base, it is an Islamic army, with religious ideology constituting an important element in its orientation and decision-making. Its leaders continue to believe in the principles of the July 1952 regime, founded by officers imbued with Muslim Brotherhood principles....

 

The slide into authoritarianism has made Turkey no longer an example for other Muslim-majority countries to aspire to.  Some may view the negative example Turkey presents under Erdogan as evidence of an incompatibility between democratic and Islamic values. But that would be an erroneous conclusion.....

Do the Muslim scholars not need to reclaim spiritual message of Islam to defeat the modern radical narratives emanating from the wrong interpretation of Islamic books? Is it enough for us to issue some anti-terror Fatwas, while the ‘jihadist extremists’ repeatedly issue their propaganda, every time with slight changing and new tricks?... 

I have never seen my country at peace with its neighbour. But never before have I seen a war played out between two nuclear-armed states with Twitter accounts. On Feb. 14, a suicide bomber hit a convoy of paramilitary forces in Indian-controlled Kashmir. Jaish-e-Muhammad, a militant group based in Pakistan, claimed responsibility for the attack....

 

This may seem an arrogant viewpoint for a teenager to hold but my heart felt that this must be so – as my God could not be so patriarchal, judgemental, and mean – otherwise why create the universe if it was just going to be a long, miserable wait to get to hell?...

Pakistan is one of the countries where radical groups affiliated to the Saudi-sponsored Wahhabi ideology are found in large numbers. Under this diabolical project, many madrasas (schools) are being run, where youth are indoctrinated to join armed insurgent groups like Jaish e Adl, a little-known terrorist group operating out of Pakistan’s Baluchistan province, bordering Iran....

 

No doubt there is pain and suffering in life but it is simply a touchstone to judge his worth and intensity and truthfulness of his faith .Sufism is complete submission to the Quranic teachings.....

The new Sharia Laws of Brunei are influenced by extremist interpretations of the injunctions of the Quran. In some cases the new laws are not in accordance of the injunctions of the Quran but on age old practices and traditions. ....

A decade later, after a reign of unbridled terror that culminated with the infamous fatwa against Salman Rushdie and the 1988 mass murder of thousands of political prisoners, including children, there was another false dawn. Several, in fact....

The house of Hamza, the Prophet Mohammad’s uncle, was flattened to make way for a Meccan hotel. Saudi royals have also transformed the house of Mohammad’s uncle and custodian, Abu Talib, into a garbage dispensing centre because he never embraced Islam....

In the months after the revolution, Khomeini and his hardline followers, nicknamed “the beards”, made decisions that set the country on a terrible path. Iran today is less pious than the mullahs would like...

 

The ritual led by Pope Francis at a stadium in Abu Dhabi, his meetings with officials, primarily those with the UAE’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed and Al-Azhar’s Sheikh Yousef El-Tayeb, is the milestone of a century-old strategy that will turn upside down the theopolitical and geopolitical maps specifically of the Arab world, and in general that of the Islamic world.....

 

Muftis (fatwa issuing mullahs) are not answerable to anybody, nor can their Fatwas be challenged at any forum. There is no check and balance on Fatwas or muftis and they can play havoc with anybody’s life...

 

Its growth rate last year (7.8 per cent) put it at par with India (8.0pc) and well above Pakistan (5.8pc). The debt per capita for Bangladesh ($434) is less than half that for Pakistan ($974) and its foreign exchange reserves ($32 billion) are four times Pakistan’s ($8bn)....

 

Why is Pakistan poor? Why is our life expectancy up to 15 years less than Japan? Why do we have such high infant mortality? Because we don’t produce enough (or any) Newtons, Einsteins, Feynmans and Salams....

 

A good Muslim idolizes the Prophet’s (PBUH) way of life. Now the Prophet (PBUH) married a twice widowed and financially independent businesswoman. But the good Muslim men of Pakistan seek virgin brides and refuse to educate their daughters in case they ‘get out of hand’....

 

Islam is rooted in history and Prophet Muhammad lived and preached what God revealed to him. Legendary historians like Renan (1823-1895), Watt (1953), and Hart (1978) validate how he inspired his followers to establish an Empire, and how his bequest as a Prophet claims more than a billion believers....
