The Salafi Call has been known to modify and review several Fatwas in the past, in light of prevailing political circumstances. Between 2011 and 2014, the movement had issued a fatwa prohibiting Coptic candidates from running in the parliamentary elections, but then in 2015 it changed its mind to include a number of Copts on its electoral lists, as per the election law at the time. This time, the Salafi Call seems to be having a change of heart in regard to women in leadership positions.....

 

The prospect of a strategic defeat in Afghanistan is playing into the growth of US rivalries and tensions with Russia. With growing stridency, American military and strategic figures are making provocative accusations that the Russian government of President Vladimir Putin is supporting the Taliban in order to undermine the Kabul government and the US position in the country....

 

The history you’ve inherited is a history tainted with the blood of certain individuals. When a religio-centric government tried to quash your protests under a unified-linguistic dictatorship, you protested. What else could you do? What was the alternative? Grit your teeth and take it in stride? Hell no. Bengalis weren’t real Muslims, they said. And real Pakistanis can’t be allowed to speak Bangla. How could they?...

 

After killing 47 worshippers at churches in two cities in Egypt a little over a week ago, the terrorist group struck again on Tuesday, this time in the tourist hot spot of southern Sinai....

 

First, extern the Hurriyat separatists from the Valley. They are the poison that kept voter turnout to a dismal seven per cent in the recent by-polls. India has indulged the Hurriyat far too much for far too long with farcical house arrests and hush payments in the hope that such bribes can buy peace. They can’t, they haven’t, and they won’t....

 

Students of computer science, engineering and medicine are increasingly the target of radicalisation by militants who view their technical ability coupled with sharp but uncritical thinking skills as an asset, experts have said....

 

The ambiguity in the interpretation of civil and criminal laws by clerics is also pretty evident from some of the infamous incidents in the country such as the ‘Imrana rape case’. In the said case, a woman from Uttar Pradesh who was raped by her father-in-law was asked by the local minority community Panchayat to treat her husband as her son. The local Panchayat also termed her marriage to her husband as null and void. The leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom too issued a fatwa supporting the stand taken by the local Panchayat on the issue.....

 

And yet the Prophet himself gave us a very different message. One of the stories about him is that he was daily abused by a woman when he used to preach the message of Islam. The Prophet never rebuked her but actually went to her house and inquired about her health when she fell ill. That message seems to have been lost on his followers. They want to do what the Prophet never taught. Perhaps this generation of Muslims understand Islam much better than the Prophet himself. Allah definitely warns all those who insult the Prophet, but then he goes on to say that He is the only one to judge them. But today, Muslims have themselves become the judge, the jury and the executioner in cases related to blasphemy...

Listen To Sonu Nigam, Please
C. M. Naim for New Age Islam

Undistorted and un-amplified, an ordinary human’s voice was perfectly able to do the task in the days when few people had alarm clocks or, for that matter, even a wristwatch. But now, even the tiny mosque in my neighborhood that can accommodate no more than 50 or 60 people has two loudspeakers tied to its minaret, and a sound system that sends its call out to a body of people 50 times larger than its capacity. But one cannot suggest a change. Apparently, the people who attend the neighborhood mosque can do perfectly well without an amplified alarm in all aspects of their daily lives except when it comes to reaching the mosque to form a congregation. Their grandfathers could do without loudspeakers but not these stalwarts of the 21st century. ….

इस्लाम में महिलाओं का बड़ा ऊंचा स्थान है। इस्लाम ने महिलाओं को अपने जीवन के हर भाग में महत्व प्रदान किया है। माँ के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, पत्नी के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, बेटी के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, बहन के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, विधवा के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, खाला के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, तात्पर्य यह कि विभिन्न परिस्थितियों में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है जिन्हें बयान करने का यहाँ अवसर नहीं हम तो बस उपर्युक्त कुछ स्थितियों में इस्लाम में महिलाओं के सम्मान पर संक्षिप्त में प्रकाश डालेंगे।

 

اسلامی قانون اسلامی معاشرہ کا امتیاز ہے، اس سے بہتر قانون پیش نہیں کیا جاسکتا ہے ، تاہم اسلامی معاشرہ کا اس سے بھی بڑا امتیاز وہ اخلاقی تعلیمات ہیں جو رب حکیم کی طرف سے قانون کے ساتھ ساتھ عطا کی گئی ہیں۔ اسلامی قانون کی ساری آب و تاب انہیں سے ہے۔ ایمان و اخلاق کا ساتھ نہ ہو تو قانون بے روح اوربے کشش ہوکر رہ جاتاہے ۔ یاد رہے صرف قانون کی حکمرانی سے اسلامی معاشرہ ایک مثالی معاشرہ نہیں بن سکتا ہے۔ ایک پرکشش مثالی اسلامی معاشرہ کے لئے قانون سے پہلے اور قانون سے کہیں زیادہ ایمان و اخلاق کی حکمرانی ضروری ہے۔

 

So why is it, finally, that Ms. Le Pen cannot become president? Because while the far right has changed its discourse, the mainstream elites still hold on to their old ways of seeing the world, or imagining what it is. Their analysis of the rise of populism is out of sync. It rests on assumptions, faulty reasoning and denial.....

 

But even without that war, the U.S.-Israeli bilateral relationship has been an expensive proposition for Americans. Whether Israel is a strategic liability or not, or whether its complicated geostrategic situation merits virtually unquestioning support from the United States, the reality is that it has a lopsided relationship with Washington.....

To think that by backing anti-Assad forces or removing him from power will lead to a flowering of democracy and peace is a fantasy. It would behoove this administration to examine the tumultuous French experience in Syria under the League of Nations mandate; we are not dealing with Anglo-Saxons. Unless the United States and the West is prepared to put troops on the ground, who would be first welcomed and then shot at, it is advisable to stay out and make them sort it out on their own...

 
For A More Just World
Aijaz Zaka Syed

No wonder words like the UN resolutions, peace process and international community invariably evoke cynicism in the Middle East. The UN has been extraordinarily prompt and effective in dealing with the so-called rogue regimes across the Muslim world but has been totally helpless in the face of real offenders and crimes against humanity.....

 

The world seems awash in chaos and uncertainty, perhaps more so than at any point since the end of the Cold War. Authoritarian-leaning leaders are on the rise in Europe, and liberal democracy itself seems under siege. The post-World War II order is fraying as fighting spills across borders and international institutions — built, at least in theory, to act as brakes on wanton slaughter — fail to provide solutions. Populist movements on both sides of the Atlantic are not just riding anti-establishment anger, but stoking fears of a religious “other,” this time Muslims....

 

He may grant our prayers here; or He may reward us for it in the hereafter; or He may give us something better than what we asked for. In any case a praying person can never lose for prayer is the highest form of submission to Him. “The Holy Prophet (PBUH) was the best of mankind because he was the best in submission to Allah,” says Maulana Manzoor Naumani. “Anyone who studies his supplications cannot but be awestruck with the perfect understanding of our relationship to the Creator reflected by them.”....

 

The Obama-Clinton disdain for naming the real enemy allowed them to pretend that the Islamic State (ISIS) was the only problem in Syria and Iraq. Meanwhile, groups with an identical jihad ideology got a pass. Al Qaeda was barely mentioned. Arms continued to flow via Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey to a rogues gallery of supposed “moderates” — Jaish al-Islam, Ahrar al-Sham, Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki, the Free Idlib Army and the Islamic Front. These jihadists operate mainly in alliance with al Qaeda, but sometimes with ISIS...

 

Just as our material body is in constant need of food for its sustenance, our spiritual soul (or rooh) is also in perpetual need for its nourishment. And while the food for our bodies is derived from the earth, the nutrition for our souls is obtained from the Word of Allah, the Holy Quran itself....

 

It is pertinent to note here that the Quran has not dealt with every possible issue, but has chosen to illustrate only on matters for which there can be no single objective matrix. It has, however, dealt with the issue of divorce in depth. The Quran grants equal right to divorce to both men and women, the only difference being that a man divorces a woman, while a woman demands divorce from her husband....

Women in Islam: Beyond Stereotypes
Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

Too much of the thinking about Muslim women is done along predictable, clichéd lines. This is true of all shades of opinion, perception and scholarship .This opinion profiles  Muslim women in stubborn stereotypes: supposedly powerless and oppressed, behind walls and veils, demure, voiceless and silent figures, discriminated and bereft of even basic rights. This picture keeps reinforcing itself, largely because this is how the Western media caricatures women in Islam.....
