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.....

Some scholars have held the opinion that it is an obligation to wear the face-veil while others have said a Muslim woman is not obliged to cover her face. For many Muslims then, the face-veil is rooted in Islamic tradition, but they will differ as to whether or not it is compulsory....


But the choices of a few cannot be allowed to bar generations of young Muslims from trying to change the world. Rather than view them with fear, a supposedly open society like the UK should ask how their dynamic potential can be allowed to flourish. The Ummah, or “community of believers”, wherever in the world they are, is a powerful idea among many young British Muslims...


To be frank, this notion that these people living in peripheral lands far away from the Hindi heartland are strange and un-Indian aliens has hit the people of the Northeast as well, though not as violently as it does Kashmiris, but then they are not mostly Muslims. The Nagas and Assamese just feel neglected, not hated....


I am apparently one of the few Indians not excited or moved by the events of last week. I am referring to our attack on Pakistan, and then their response the next day, and then the drama with the Air Force pilot for two days after that, ending with his release on Friday night. There are several reasons and some of them you may disagree with....

 “The truth is that as long as there isn’t a political resolution to communal conflict in India, we’ll continue to face this problem,” an NIA official admits. “This is about what’s happening next door, not in Iraq."...

Pulwama, Before and After
Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

There is certainly some truth in the arguments that militant groups active in Pakistan are majorly responsible for turning this young person into a suicide bomber. However, there is a need to underscore that certain theological precepts may also be responsible for what ultimately became of him. And that’s why there is an urgent need to question such theological discourses which makes someone prone to violence. Without putting an end to such pernicious reading of Islamic theology, it will be difficult to stop another Pulwama....

ہمارے علماء اس بات سے غافل نہیں ہوسکتے کہ آج بڑی تعداد میں مسلم نوجوان دنیا بھر میں جہادی جماعتوں میں شمولیت اختیار کررہے ہیں۔ ہمیں اس بات کی گہری فکر ہونی چاہئے کہ سب سے پہلی مرتبہ کب پاکستان میں ایک سنی مسلمان شیعہ مسلمانوں کی کسی مسجد میں گیا اور ان نمازیوں کو مارنے کے لئے خود کو بم دھماکے سے اڑا لیا جنہیں وہ کافر و مرتد سمجھتا تھا، اور اس کام کو اس نے ایک ایسی نیکی سمجھ کر انجام دیا جس کے لئے اللہ اسے جنت کا انعام عطا فرمائے گا۔


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....


According to partial data compiled by the South Asia Terrorism Portal (SATP), at least 265 Afghan SF personnel have died in the current year so far (data till March 3, 2019). During the corresponding period of 2018, Afghanistan recorded for 162 Afghan SF fatalities....


Recalling the day when Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide-bomber Adil Ahmad Dar rammed the car, owned by Aamir, into the CRPF convoy in Pulwama, Aamir’s uncle Tariq said his nephew sat with him all through the afternoon. “We both searched for the news on my mobile....


      വിയന്ന പ്രസ്താവനയും പദ്ധതി പ്രവർത്തനങ്ങളും നമ്മോട് ആവശ്യപ്പെടുന്നത് എല്ലാതരം സഹിഷ്ണുതകളോടും പരദേശി സ്പർദ്ധയ്ക്കും എതിരെ പ്രവർത്തിക്കാനാണ്.

The scrapping of Article 370 of the Constitution cannot be an answer to the escalating situation in Kashmir. It will only sharpen the anxieties of an insecure people. Nor can the “de-hyphenation of Ladakh and Jammu from Kashmir Valley” yield any fruitful results. Kashmir deserves a dialogical solution by taking on board all the stakeholders....


The bloodcurdling threats we have heard from Narendra Modi won’t solve the problem. Neither will Nitin Gadkari’s warnings over river and canal water or Lt General K.J.S. Dhillon’s thundering. Unlike Israel bombing Iraq’s Osirak reactor or the Americans attacking Al-Qaeda targets in Afghanistan, India has to cope with what is primarily a domestic challenge. Cross-border raids dignified as “surgical strikes” won’t resolve it....

The US President Trump has started especial initiative to get its puppet government led by Ashraf Ghani elected again as he does not want Taliban to come to power. But strangely enough, the Taliban have shown no interest in capturing the power in Kabul. Instead they just want to retain their hold on the area they hold sway over. According the Russian ambassador in Kabul, Zameer Qobolov, Taliban enjoy control over fifty per cent of the country where the writ of the Afghan government does not run....

हमारे उलेमा इस बात से अनजान नहीं हो सकते कि आज बड़ी संख्या में मुस्लिम युवा दुनिया भर में जिहादी जमातों में शमूलियत विकल्प कर रहे हैंl हमें इस बात की गहरी चिंता होनी चाहिए कि सबसे पहली बार कब पाकिस्तान में एक सुन्नी मुसलमान शिया मुसलमानों की किसी मस्जिद में गया और उन नमाज़ियों को मारने के लिए स्वयं को बम धमाके से उड़ा लिया जिन्हें वह काफिर व मुर्तद समझता था, और इस काम को उसने एक ऐसी नेकी समझ कर अंजाम दिया जिसके लिए अल्लाह उसे जन्नत का इनाम अता फरमाएगाl

مندرجہ بالا آیات قرآنیہ کا اگر تجزیہ کیا جائے تو اس کا لب لباب یہ نکلتا ہے کہ اللہ کا ذکر اہل ایمان کے دلوں کا سکون ہے۔ ہمارا ظاہر بھی یاد الٰہی میں مشغول ہو اور ہمارا باطن بھی یاد الٰہی میں ڈوبا ہوا رہے۔ اور جیسا کہ نبی کریم ﷺ نے ارشاد فرمایا کہ: ‘‘اللہ کا ذکر علامت ایمان ہے، اللہ کا ذکر نفاق سے نجات کی ضمانت ہے، اللہ کا ذکر شیطان کے حملوں سے نجات کا ایک مضبوط حصار ہے اور اللہ کا ذکر عذاب جہنم سے نجات کا پروانہ ہے’’۔ لہٰذا اب ہمیں یہ سوچنا چاہئے کہ وہ کون کون سے امور یا افعال ہیں جن پر ذکر اللہ کا اطلاق کیا جا سکتا ہے ۔
