For starters, Saxton retired almost a decade ago, but the Taliban, despite being “defeated” way back when, didn’t do the same. Today, they contest for or control about 44% of Afghanistan. That country also hosts many more terror groups -- 20 in all -- than it did 12 years ago. “Vicious Iraqi dictator” Saddam Hussein is, of course, still dead and gone, but in 2014, about a third of “the new, democratic Iraq” was overrun by Islamic State militants. The country was only re-liberated in late 2017 and the Islamic State is already making a comeback there this year....

 

First, politicians in a country propose banning the face veil, which is worn by a small number of Muslim women and reflects one interpretation of the Quran’s injunction to “cover and be modest.” They argue that a ban will promote integration, or public safety, or that wearing a veil is inconsistent with national values like gender equality. Pundits and lawmakers loudly debate the policy, and the argument rages in the press. A few propose legal challenges. Eventually, the ban is passed into law....

 

There have been clear recent indications of this difference. The Crown Prince has recognized Israel's right to exist and was reported as saying the Palestinians should either "shut up" or makes peace with Israel. Pushing back, King Salman reiterated "the kingdom's steadfast position towards the Palestinian issue and the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to an independent state," and lately declared that U.S. President Trump's peace plan had to include East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital....

 

This adjustment between the secular ruling elite and the Deobandi scholars had evolved over decades and it survived close to two centuries. Both classes had a lot in common and both were entrenched in the system. The new religious parties bring new social dynamics to the political arena. Khadim Hussain Rizvi and his party has found resonance with a section of Pakistani society that had been left untouched by the political activism of the PTI and were discontent with the patronage politics of other parties....

 

Among them the more striking one includes the crystallisation of the electoral power of the Barelvi school of thought in the shape of the remarkable performance of the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan.  The party has won just two provincial assembly seats. However, the truly exceptional aspect of this party has been its candidates and their vigorous modern campaigns that included all modern platforms that any party anywhere in the world in this day and age uses for wider reach....

 

The Quran asks us to see signs of God’s Qualities in the book of nature, and it’s worth contemplating the spider a little further in order to get a better perspective on patience. Web-weaving spiders patiently wait for their prey to come to them – they are receptive in a deadly way. Females are generally the most prolific web-weavers, and are also more deadly than the male. Interesting to note, too, that like patience itself, spiders are often something we would prefer to overlook.....

 

Quran allowed its followers to wage defensive war only in the case of protecting the weak and downtrodden people without exceeding limits and this does not make Islam a religion of violence. Hence those who have been misrepresenting the verses of the Quran related to permitting war in defence against the religious oppressors and have been applying them to kill innocent people living in peace are actually violating the real purpose of Islam, that is, establishment of peace....

हदीस के शारेहीन ने सामान्यतः इस भविष्यवाणी की व्याख्या यह की है कि ईसा अलैहिस्सलाम के नाज़िल होने के मौके पर कुफ्र का अंत और इस्लाम का बोलबाला हो जाएगाl तथापि निकटतम अतीत के प्रसिद्ध मुहद्दिस अल्लामा अनवर शाह कश्मीरी रहमतुल्लाह अलैह ने इस राय से मतभेद व्यक्त किया हैl उनका कहना है कि रिवायत में उस मौके पर इस्लाम के ग़ालिब आने का जो ज़िक्र हुआ है, उससे मुराद पूरी धरती नहीं, बल्कि सीरिया और उसके आस पास का विशिष्ट क्षेत्र है जहां सैयदना मसीह का नुज़ूल होगा और जो उस समय इस्लाम वालों और कुफ्र वालों के बीच दुविधा और युद्ध का केंद्र होगाl

 

تاہم، مدنی دور میں اسلامی ریاست کی ایک جارحانہ تصویر ہمیں دیکھنے کو ملتی ہے جس میں غزوات، توہین رسالت کا قانون، یہودیوں اور عیسائیوں کا ریاست سے نکالا جانا اور ‘‘لا اکراہ فی الدین’’ جیسے قرآن کے پرامن آیات کا منسوخ کیا جانا بھی پایا جاتا ہے۔ پاکستان میں تقریبا تمام اسلام پرست سیاسی پارٹیوں کا نقطہ نظر یہی ہے، اب دیکھنا یہ ہے کیا عمران خان مدینہ جیسے ویلفیئر اسٹیٹ کاحقیقی ماڈل اختیار کرتے ہیں جس کی بنیاد نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے خود رکھی تھی یا پھر اس راستے پر چل پڑتے ہیں جیسے پاکستان میں انتہا پسند نظریہ سازوں نے اغواء کررکھا ہے۔

 

Two recent developments have once again raised questions about the role of the international community with regard to the Rohingya refugee crisis. These are: the appointment of an “independent Commission of Inquiry (COI)” by the Myanmar government, and the decision of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to commemorate the anniversary of the Myanmar Army's atrocities against the Rohingyas. The question is whether the Myanmar government will be able to get away with this charade, and whether the UNSC commemoration will have any impact beyond its symbolic importance....

 

Again and again over the past two years, a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia and backed by the United States has claimed it won decisive victories that drove Al-Qaida militants from their strongholds across Yemen and shattered their ability to attack the West. Here’s what the victors did not disclose: many of their conquests came without firing a shot....

 

The "deal of the century" that President Trump has promised will resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict may be easily dismissed in terms of its substance, considering the extremist views of its authors, but it will have to be dealt with eventually - one way or another...

 

Despite unqualified support and immense help from the tribal elders and communities in the war against terrorism, Islamabad has demonstrated little concern for the safety and development of the tribal regions. The populations of KP (including erstwhile FATA) continue to suffer under sweeping and indiscriminate military operations, largely executed through haphazard bombings and artillery attacks on populated areas, which has brought ruination to the entire region and its populations.....

 

Islam calls for intellectual freedom and breaks any restrictions that stand in its way. So arts must go out to the horizons of freedom so that an artist will be able to perform with greater creativity. When will we have institutes and colleges that teach fine arts? And when will we teach music at public schools? These are two ways for arts to get out of its cage in our society....

 

I tried talking to a Muslim called Anil a couple of months back. Not only did he not talk to me, he glowered and told me to go talk to myself if the urge to communicate with another Muslim was that acute. When Anil isn’t making a livelihood selling tea out of a small hole-in-the-wall shop down the road from where I live, he’s just another Muslim offering his prayers whenever he can and shielding his identity as Anil....

Something the Qur’an and the Masnavi both have in common is that they are not books as we normally think of books being written. Both originated as oral expressions, and oral texts are different from written ones. Whereas written texts “set things in stone”, laying words like bricks on paper, oral texts are more like jazz standards: individual performers provide their own interpretation of familiar songs. In the same way, oral texts are open and flexible....

इस्लाम से पहले का वह दौर जैसा कि उसे जाहिलियत के दिन कहा जाता है वैसा ही है जैसा दुनिया के दुसरे क्षेत्रों में अंधियारे का राज रह चुका हैl और जिस प्रकार रौशन ख़याली ने यूरोप को अँधेरे युग से निकाल कर आधुनिकता की दहलीज पर ला कर खड़ा कर दिया इसी तरह इस्लाम ने भी उस अरब क्षेत्र और उसके नागरिकों को अत्याचार, अज्ञानता, बर्बरता और वहशत के अंधियारे से निकाल कर मानवता, इल्म व फिक्र, सभ्यता व संस्कृति, और रौशन ख़याली की एक नई सुबह से परिचित कियाl इस्लाम की आधुनिक इतिहास में सैयद क़ुतुब और मौदूदी के अनुसार अब भी इस दुनिया के अधिक क्षेत्र जाहिलियत के अँधेरे में डूबे हुए हैं और अपनी इस स्वयंभू अज्ञानता के अँधेरे से आज़ाद होने के लिए अब भी इस्लाम का मुंह तक रहे हैंl

 

اگر انہوں نے اپنے رہنما مرزا غلام احمد قادیانی کو نبی کے بجائے ایک امام قرار دیا ہوتا تو کوئی مسئلہ ہی نہیں پیدا ہوتا۔ میری رائے میں احمدیہ کی ویب سائٹ قرآن کریم بہترین تفسیر فراہم کرتی ہے اور احمدی اچھے مسلمان ہیں جو نبی ﷺ اور اللہ کی عزت کرتے ہیں۔ ان کے عقائد اسلام کے لئے ذلت کا سبب نہیں ہیں ، اور وہ ایسے لوگ ہیں جن پر ہم فخر کر سکتے ہیں اور دوستی بھی کر سکتے ہیں۔ بہر حال، اللہ نے ہم سے ایسا کوئی وعدہ نہیں لیا ہے کہ ہم دوسروں کو اپنا عقیدہ قبول کرنے پر مجبور کریں۔

 

They (Daesh loyalists) came in on many white pickup trucks mounted with big machine guns and fought the Taliban. The Taliban could not resist and fled… Unlike the Taliban, they (IS) don't force villagers to feed and house them. Instead, they have lots of cash in their pockets and spend it on food and luring young villagers to join them. Some villagers welcomed the new arrivals....

 
Palmyra: A Changing Townscape
Emanuele E. Intagliata

Based on a reassessment of published reports and unpublished archival data from past archaeological excavations and surveys, along with a large corpus of Latin, ancient Greek, Syrian, and Arabic written sources, the project has so far managed to shed new light on the fate of Palmyra. It appears that the events of 272/273 CE marked an important watershed for the history of the city....

 

Indeed, the growing electoral support for the extremist outfit whose politics is based on animus against other religious groups and that justifies violence in the name of faith is worrisome; yet it is not likely to change the power matrix in the country. The rout of the top leadership of the MMA came as a huge surprise in the elections, and so has the expansion of the TLP’s popular base. ...
