کئی برس سے تین طلاق برابر ایک طلاق کا مطالبہ کیا جارہا ہے اچھے اچھے دین دار تعلیم یافتہ یہ مطالبہ پرسنل لا بورڈ سے کررہے ہیں کہ وہ تین طلاق کو ایک طلاق کے برابر قرار دے۔ ان کے خیال میں یہ پرسنل لا کے عالموں کو اختیار حاصل ہے کہ وہ تین کو ایک کردیں ۔ برس پر برس گذرگئے۔ بورڈ کی طرف سے کہا جارہا ہے کہ یہ انسان کے اختیار کی چیز نہیں ہے۔ حضور اکرم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے زمانہ میں بھی ایک مسلمان نے ایک ہی وقت میں تین طلاق دیدی تھی آقائے کائنات کے علم میں یہ بات آئی تو چہرۂ اقدس غصہ سے سرخ ہوگیا اور فرمایا کہ ابھی تو میں دنیا میں موجود ہوں اس کے باوجود اتنی غلط حرکت کرنے کی ہمت کرلی؟


مسلم پرسنل لاء بورڈ یقیناًمسلمانوں کا ایک ایسا واحد ادارہ ہے جس میں سبھی مسالک کی بھر نمائندگی ہے اور دوسری خاص بات یہ ہے کہ اس کے اندر پھوٹ نہیں ہے۔ اس کے تمام ذمہ داران ایک زبان میں بولتے ہیں ۔ اس ادارے پر مسلمانوں کی اکثریت کو اعتماد بھی ہے کہ جو کچھ یہ بورڈ کہے گا وہ ہندوستانی مسلمانوں کے حق میں ہوگا، مگرایسا لگتا ہے کہ ہندوستانی میڈیا کے زبردست دباؤ کی وجہ سے مسلم پرسنل لاء کے ذمہ داران بھی کنفیوژن کا شکار ہو کر ایسی باتیں کہہ رہے ہیں کہ جو عام مسلمان کے حلق سے نہیں اتر رہی ہیں ۔

The US military forces committed a classical example of the aggression on one sovereign and independent state on April 6th, 2017 by bombing a territory of Syrian Arab Republic by 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles killing civilians who are proclaimed as usually as “collateral damage”. A formal excuse for the aggression was based as many times before (from Vietnam, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya… cases) on traditional political false flags.....


When Mustafa went about establishing a modern and secular state, many of his moves were deemed controversial by existing Islamists who were still loyal to the Ottomans. He would go on to pass laws regarding gender equality and women’s suffrage. He would also introduce religious reforms, abolishing the Islamic Caliphate. He scrapped a ban on alcohol and forbade women workers from wearing headscarves.....


He expressed his opposition to the English-medium schools because they distanced students from “Pakistani culture” and recommended that “education should be imparted in the English language only at the higher levels and even then, the syllabus should be in line with the culture in Pakistan”....


While most societies across the globe are becoming more liberal when it comes to gender, not only are Arab countries the most conservative, there is also little evidence of change. Our research, which looks at how political and social attitudes changed after the Arab uprisings in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia, suggests that although women tend to be more progressive, both women and men share conservative attitudes...

Generating smoke without fire against persons deemed difficult or uncontrollable by Pakistan’s permanent state establishment, the deep state, is often the greatest accomplishment of inquiries created by the Supreme Court on direct petitions like the one over the Panama Papers. The JIT might still find nothing definitive for prosecution but Mr. Sharif is on notice. And that is how Pakistan’s system is designed to work....

God created humans as eternal beings. Human life consists of two parts: firstly, the pre-death period; and secondly, the post-death period. The first extends over a very short period of time, while the latter will continue for eternity.  Other than man, all beings in this world function completely according to the law of nature. They compulsorily do what the law of nature has destined for them. But man’s case is different. In possessing freewill man is an exceptional being....


After 9/11, the US and its allies identified terrorists living in these very communities and allied with central governments in order to target and destroy them. Too often, however, central governments used the pretext of the war on terror and the substantial levels of military and financial assistance they were receiving from the US to settle scores with the tribes, which they often viewed as uncivilized and backward.....

Can We Do Something About Triple Talaq?
Asif Merchant, New Age Islam

I have yet to come across an ordinary Muslim who is in favour of it. The consensus seems to be that this is something which is spoiling the image of Islam, but there is nothing we can do about it. There is this mysterious All India Muslim Personal Law Board which alone is entitled to speak for all Indian Muslims. If it is acting in an illogical manner, so be it….

It puts no gender based restriction on a growing up girl. As she reaches a marriageable age (4:6), it allows her to choose her own spouse (2:221).It commands a man to give an agreed dower (saduqat) to his bride but permits her to voluntarily remit a part of it (4:4). It obligates a man to pay half the amount of the dower if it was already agreed, or a reasonable dower (if the amount was not agreed) in the event of his refusal to proceed with the marriage (2:236/237). It exhorts him to be considerate and humane in his conjugal relations by adding a spiritual dimension to marital sexuality (2:223) and dismisses any notion of marital rape by its general prohibition of not taxing anyone beyond his/ her capacity (2:233, 65:7). It entrusts man with care, support and maintenance of his wife (4:34), permits a woman in wedlock to have an independent income and to share it with others (4:32).It abolishes the custom of a man’s abandoning his wife by simply taking an oath without releasing her (2:226).It lays down clear protocol of arbitration to reconcile estranged relations in wedlock (4:35) and sets out a three month time-frame or waiting period for a divorce (2:228/229) to become irrevocable….

यह सच है कि 'आतंकवाद का कोई धर्म नहीं है'। लेकिन इससे हमें मौजूदा इस्लामी आतंकवाद के जटिल मुद्दे का समाधान नहीं मिलने वाला है। जब तक मुस्लिम समाज इन समस्याओं को स्वीकार नहीं करता तब तक ऐसे तत्व मुस्लिम नौजवानों के सरल मन में अपनी बीज बोते रहेंगे। अल्पसंख्यक संस्थानों और विशेष रूप से मुसलमानों द्वारा प्रशासित संस्थानों को इस्लाम की ऐसी सही स्पष्टीकरण के द्वारा आईएसआईएस को बेनकाब करना चाहिए।

مشال خان کا قتل افسوس سے زیادہ فکر کا لمحہ ہے ۔ مشال کے قتل کا ویڈیو دیکھئے اور دو چیزوں پر غور کیجئے ۔ پہلی چیز ایک نوجوان کو پتھر وں اور ڈنڈوں سے پیٹ پیٹ کر قتل کیا جا رہا ہے اور فضا میں اللہ کی کبریائی کے نعرے بلند ہورہے ہیں ۔ لوگ دم توڑ تے نوجوان کو ٹھوکریں مار رہے ہیں ، لاٹھیاں مار رہے ہیں ، پتھر سے سر کچل رہے ہیں اور ہر ضرب کے ساتھ اللہ اکبر کا نعرہ لگاتے جاتے ہیں ۔ دوسری چیز دیکھئے کہ یہ قاتل کون ہیں ۔ ان سب کے نام تو نہیں پتہ لیکن حلیہ سب کا ایک جیسا ہے ۔ داڑھی ہے اور شلواڑ کرتا ہے۔ دیکھنے میں سب کے سب ماشا اللہ مومن نوجوان لگ رہے ہیں اور یقینی طور پر ان میں سے کئی مولویت پڑھے ہوئے ہیں ۔


حضور نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کا فیصلہ اور امیر المومنین حضرت عمر رضی اللہ عنہ کا فیصلہ ایک دوسرے کے فیصلے کے خلاف نہیں ، بلکہ بوقت حاجت شریعت کے عین مطابق ہے،تو اب اس بات پر غور کرناانتہائی لازم ہوجاتا ہے کہ حضور اکرم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے ایک مجلس میں دی جانے والی تین طلاق کو ایک طلاق کیوں قرار دیا، اور حضرت عمر رضی اللہ عنہ نے ایک مجلس میں دی جانے والی تین طلاق کو تین طلاق کیوں قرار دیا؟


Turkey's soul-searching and societal wars never have a moment of truce. Turkey's wars are not just between political leaders and parties; they are wars between the supporters of a democratic, secular country and those of a caliphate which Ataturk, founder of modern Turkey, abolished almost a century ago. As Kati Piri, the European Parliament's Turkey rapporteur, said of the referendum: "This is a sad day for all democrats in Turkey."....


By the time their relatives realized they were missing, five families – some with small children – had left their comfortable bungalows and jobs as doctors and businessmen to make the perilous journey to Islamic State-controlled territory in Afghanistan. Authorities believe 19 adults and three children settled in Nangarhar province, on the mountainous border with Pakistan. Their departure has raised alarms about the Islamic State's reach in India as well as growing extremism in Kerala, a southern state with deep ties through migrant workers to the Arab Gulf....


Instead, fix your eyes on God above. And as we see only Him in front, we ourselves we ourselves will imbue the purity He has. Then look back and see that others who are behind, don’t focus on you but onto the One whom you continue pointing out to them. Don’t follow human gods or try to be one yourself..!...
