Islamic Society

Zakat is one of the fundamental principles of the Quran and without fulfilling this obligation one cannot be a true or complete Muslim. Zakat has been mandated with a Muslim because God does not want devotion only to him but also wants Muslims to care for the society in which he lives. He cannot be a true Muslim until and unless he fulfils his duty towards his neighbours....

There is a most touching story behind its origin: “After the death of his wife Sati, Lord Shiva cried so inconsolably that his tears formed a pond that came to be known as the Katas Raj pond. Around this pond, temples were built dedicated to the Hindu deities Shiva, Ram and Hanuman....

 

For example, if Islam is the state religion of Pakistan, why have the mosques not been nationalised?  The state ought to nationalize all mosques, madrasas, shrines and their properties.  Every Imam of every Muslim sect should be a government official of BPS-18 trained by the Ministry of Religious Affairs in both Deen and Duniya....

Prior to the revolution, Iran very much resembled Western countries, with a flourishing economy and tourists flocking to the country for its breath-taking landscapes, beaches and various activities, including hiking and skiing. ...

 

 “It teaches students how to perform religious duties, but does not impart the meaning of what it is to be a Muslim, especially in a multi-ethnic society like Malaysia....

 

However, we need to be wary of the long arm of the Saudi state. The state has been known to kidnap its ‘problematic’ citizens residing in other countries and bring them back to Saudi Arabia. Worse still, there have been reports that its hit squads have targeted dissidents even on foreign territory....

The rightly guided Caliphs fought against such zealots called “Khawarij” as every subsequent Islamic empire and dynasty like Ommayids, Abbassids, Mamluks, Seljuks, and Ottomans....

 

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....

The traditional orthodox interpretation of Islam is very much in the ascendant in Turkey, but a burgeoning reformist Islamic narrative is gaining traction...

 let us honour the women who have lately stood up to be counted — from Rahaf al-Qunun to Kanaka Durga and Bindu Ammini, who breached the Sabarimala ban, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar....

For the blind followers who are hostage to the faith mafia and prefer to remain its captives, there is no hope in the world. The world is not going to love the darkness of hatred...

With increasing Islamophobia mania and invoking victimhood, a significant number of scholars working on Islamic communities appear to be distancing themselves from critiquing issues that matter paving way for legitimising the most deleterious practices...

Ibn Abbas reports that the Prophet once said: “The most hated of the people to Allah are three persons: A person who deviates into the unlawful; a person who seeks for the tradition of ignorance to remain in Islam; and a person who seeks to shed another’s blood without right of justice.”...

 

China can look like a great model, in which the economy grows without Western nuisances like human rights, free speech or limited government. For Muslim societies, however, the Uighur crisis must be a wake-up call. It shows what can happen to Muslims when authoritarian governments embrace Islamophobia as state policy....

Based sometimes on the wealth in the coffers of the bride’s family, or in the greed of the groom’s family, a dowry is demanded. ....

But these days, if you get out on the city streets for a walk, you may come to believe that virtually half of Bangladeshi women have taken up the veil. All sorts of Islamic veils are evident these days -- Abaya, Niqab, Chador, Khimar, Burqa, and of course the hijab....

 

Sure you want to make a Riyasat-e-Medina or establish a rightly guided caliphate, by all means do it but what is the point in ascribing to Jinnah these ideas when he never used any such idea ever?....

Even conservative estimates illustrate that the military’s corporate ventures have an approximate value of over $25 billion: in 2016, our senators were informed that the Pakistani military holds assets worth $20 billion. In any country in the world, such economic power concentrated in the hands of a single arm of the state would be extremely worrying but in a poor country like Pakistan, with a faltering and unstable democracy, this situation is even more alarming....

 

The effort is meant to benefit the madrasas themselves as much as it is their students. The ulema, or the world’s body of Islamic scholars, were once intellectual and spiritual leaders within Muslim societies. Today, Moosa says, they are rapidly losing their moral authority as their madrasa educations have left them out of touch with the times....

Religious persecution is as ancient as religion itself and throughout history; millions of people have been murdered because of their faith. Such genocide persists today. Yet, strangely, the campaign for mutual respect of religion does not seem to be afforded the same weight. Whether anti-Semitism, Islamophobia or anti-Christianism, religious hatred of all kinds is a huge problem....

Anyone who imposes any restriction on women’s education on Islamic religious ground acts against the message and spirit of Islam. Islam does not put any such restriction against women. Education is a bounty of Allah which is open to all regardless of gender. To deprive Muslim women of this bounty is to deny them of a great bounty of Allah….

It certainly has nothing to do with Jinnah, whose one major consistent theme was the unfettered march of humanity — something that he harked back to throughout his life in a multitude of his speeches. He did not believe for example that any one generation could bind the next for all times to come. This was the essence of Jinnah’s political thought — that nothing is static in politics and that the march of humanity will not be thwarted. A militarised Pakistani state at odds with its neighbour and non-identical fraternal twin was not what Jinnah had in mind....

Why Does a Play Rile Islamists in Kerala?
Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

The play is about women’s right, dignity and gender justice. It is also certainly humanist in the sense that the father eventually relents and redeems his own humanity. Also, the play would have lent itself to the current Muslim women’s movement in Kerala which is demanding entry of women in mosques. But then, all good things must come to an end. And in Muslim context, many a times it ends before it even starts....

As per the Quran, governance would be based on wide consultation, as in a truly democratic system. Individual and collective lives would be imbibed with Quranic ethos, including welfare of all members. A Muslim society would be pluralistic, open to criticism, accountable to its people and welcoming to people of other beliefs. The Islamic social order, defined by Iman, Islam and Taqwa is essential before Muslims think of ruling the world again or even of creating an Islamic state within a country....

 

Justice in all its forms, social, political and economical, is among the core teachings of Islam, and we need to always remember that, especially at times of major change, like that taking place at the moment in a number of Muslim countries going through “The Arab Spring”, if we are true followers of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Never be unjust towards others, even towards those who oppressed you for many years. Let justice always be the light which guides you in this life, as injustice is darkness on the Day of Judgment....
