पाकिस्तान की समस्या यह है कि वहां मुस्लिम समाज के भीतर बड़े पैमाने पर असहिष्णुता और घृणा पाई जाती है। वहां शिया और सुन्नी और यहां तक कि खुद सुन्नियों के बीच जबरदस्त दुश्मनी है, मुसलमान इस्लाम की अन्य व्याख्याओं को गवारा नहीं करते। इसलिए सल्फियों को बरैलवियों के साथ जबरदस्त परेशानी है जिसका जवाब वह उसी ऊर्जा के साथ देते हैं। क्या यह सच नहीं है कि हजारों देवबंदी मदरसों के अंदर युवा मन में यह जहर घोला जा रहा है कि बरैलवी इस्लाम के दुश्मन हैं और क्या यह भी सच नहीं है कि बरैलवी मदरसों के अंदर नव युवकों को देवबंदियों से नफरत करने की शिक्षा दी जाती है।

Since terrorism has survived through the ages, is it possible that it is part of human nature? As children we were afraid of the ‘bully on the block’. When the local Badmash terrified the neighbourhood, we wanted someone to do the same to him. We relished the thought that others would live in fear of us. Maybe terrorism is merely a more radical version of scaring, intimidating, petrifying or frightening others. But then that is a subject for social scientists and psychologists....

 

Meanwhile, a video by a local Barelvi cleric is making the rounds on social media in which the said cleric claims that ours is not a religion of peace. He goes on to argue — quite inaccurately that there is no verse in our holy book that speaks of peace. This goes against the very grain of what Muslim activists all around the world have been at pains to establish. Now here comes a cleric with a huge following telling people that what we have been saying is untrue.....

 

A dialogue between communities and interacting with one another helps break down myths and creates understanding. It is always good to be open-minded and honest. Apart from the indigenous people of Australia, we are all migrants and share this land. Being isolated is harmful, as it leads to distrust from both sides....

 

Extremism has cast a web over diverse religious practices. Whereas death anniversaries and pilgrimages to shrines have usually involved the veneration of peaceful Sufi saints symbolising tolerance and religious syncretism, today thousands pay homage to the shrine of an assassin and organise an “Urs” – death anniversary of a Sufi saint – transforming a murderer into a saint....

 

The Prophet also declared an area of 12-miles in distance from the centre of Medina as Haram (forbidden by religion) and also prohibited the cutting of trees and the killing of animals within its borders. 1400 years later, our planet is paying a huge toll due to the shift in lifestyles, overconsumption and unsustainable practices and we are desperately in need to implement the Prophets (PBUH) ecological Sunnah so we can protect our planet and conserve its resources for the next generation....

When it comes to Kerala, political killings are nothing new to the CPM or the RSS. North Kerala’s soil is soaked in the blood of innocent victims of this decades-old ideological vendetta. It is no exaggeration to say that in those parts, leaders from both sides encourage cadre to annihilate each other on a regular basis. But this time when such a call came from the distant land of Madhya Pradesh, not everyone thought it was appropriately timed. In fact, the call by a misguided and emotionally charged RSS man to behead Kerala Chief Minister and CPM strongman Pinarayi Vijayan came at a very inappropriate time....

 

Sufism thus stands in marked contrast with the fanaticism, intolerance, bigotry and militarism of the Taliban, their mentors and like-minded individuals – who, on their part, look upon it as heretical. According to the Taliban ideology, ‘the heretics’ deserve only one type of treatment: death. The militants regard bombing the shrines and killing the pilgrims who visit these places as a religious duty. Not surprisingly, several shrines in Pakistan have been soaked in blood by the militants.

 “What happens in the Qur’an is deeply related to the travail of our time, and we need the Qur’anic word in the face of it. This would be true, of course, if only for the reason that multitudes of mankind, to be guided or persuaded about modernity at all, will need to be guided and persuaded Qur’anically.....Even where secularism has gone far among them or irreligion presses, their judgments and their sanity, their priorities and their ideals, will always be in large measure within the mind of the Qur’an.”…

तस्व्वुफ (सूफीवाद) दुनिया को शांति, अहिंसा, प्रेम और भाईचारे का पाठ देता है। सूफियों ने पूरी दुनिया को प्यार का संदेश दिया है। उनके भाईचारे व प्रेम का संदेश आज भी सार्थक है जो दिलों को जोड़ने का काम कर सकता है। तस्व्वुफ की सबसे बुनियादी शिक्षा है कि इंसान अपने निर्माता और मालिक से ऐसा आध्यात्मिक रिश्ता जोड़े कि उसे अपने दिल के आईने में सारी दुनिया का तस्वीर दिखने लगे। इस तरह दिल से दिल के तार जुड़ते चले जाएंगे और कोई भी इसके लिए गैर और पराया नहीं रह जाएगा।

 



طلاق کے بارے میں اسلام کی پہلی کوشش یہ ہے کہ اس کا وقوع نہ ہو؛ لیکن اگر شدید ضرورت پیش آجائے تو پھر دوسری کوشش یہ ہے کہ اختلاف اور نزاع کے پہلے ہی مرحلے میں طلاق نہیں دینی چاہئے ، بلکہ ایسی تمام صورتوں کو عمل میں لانا چاہئے جن کے ذریعے زوجین کے درمیان کی کشیدگی ختم ہوجائے۔ دونوں میاں بیوی ایک دوسرے کے منفی پہلو کو نظر انداز کرتے ہوئے مثبت پہلو پر نظر رکھیں، کیو نکہ ہر انسان کے اندر اچھائی اور برائی ہوتی ہے، کوئی بھی انسان صرف شرکا یا صرف خیر کا مرکز نہیں ہوتا ۔ اسی کی طرف اشارہ کرتے ہوئے قرآن نے فرمایا :



 

حلالہ ہندوستانی مسلمانوں کے اندر سب سے زیادہ فحش سماجی معمول ہے جسے علماء کے تمام طبقوں کی حمایت حاصل ہے۔ اگر تین طلاق کا عمل ختم کر دیا جائے یا ایک ہی نشست میں دی جانے والی تین طلاق کو ایک ہی قرآنی طلاق مانا جائے تو یہ سماجی معمول خود بخودختم ہو جائے گا۔ جیسا کہ مراکش، کویت، یمن، افغانستان، لیبیا، کویت، قطر، بحرین، متحدہ عرب امارات، سعودی عرب، پاکستان، بنگلہ دیش، مصر، شام، اردن، عراق، سوڈان سمیت 22 مسلم ممالک میں اس پر عمل کیا جاتا ہے۔

 
President Trump’s Muslim Ban Lite
New York Times Editorial

While it may disrupt fewer lives, the new ban, and its justification, conveys the same spurious messages: that Muslims are inherently dangerous and that resettling refugees represents a dire threat. As part of the new order, the government intends to disseminate data on “honour killings” committed by foreigners in the United States. This step, and Mr. Sessions’ unsubstantiated claim about refugees under F.B.I. investigation, can be read only as a cultural smear....

 

This revised order is a Muslim ban. All the countries he has excluded are more than 90 percent Muslim. Three of them — Iran, Somalia and Yemen — are more than 99 percent Muslim. Even though Mr. Trump tailored his order to survive legal challenges, as his former adviser Rudolph Giuliani conceded on national television, his objective is clearly to exclude Muslims....

 

Gradually, a cult of river worship developed in some of the areas where the Indus flows. The devotees personified their beliefs: Muslims would call him Khawaja Khizar, Zinda Pir, and Sheikh Tahir, while Hindus would evoke him by the names like Uderolal, Amar Lal, Uday Chand, and Jhulay Lal...

 

Finally, one cannot help but ask a question of our Uber patriots who are frothing at the mouth over the recent events at Delhi University: Why has this Government not taken heed of what transpired in the Delhi bomb blast case? Is it also complicit like the Congress or does it find it easier to terrorise a 20-year old student and organise flag marches rather than to deal with the actual business of making the country safe?....

 

The notion of the absolute and therefore single Truth was inherited by Islam which announced that while partial truths had been revealed earlier through the agency of prophecy, Muhammad was the last in the line of prophets and therefore the single ultimate Truth was embedded in the Quran. Indeed, a synonym of God in Islam is the Truth (al-Haq). The slightest deviation from any word of the Quran was tantamount to Bida’t (heresy) and strictly unlawful. It also imbibed the concept of the Day of Judgment from Christianity and therefore the other attributes of the singularity of Truth and its inevitable triumph over falsehoods, termed Kufr, with the same meaning and intensity as infidelity....

Having said that, I think Qadri’s act shouldn’t be a surprise. Qadri, in his own words, was motivated by a sermon of a local imam. The government should, at least, monitor Friday sermons at all mosques. This is essential to check hate-preaching and extremism which has become an existential threat for Pakistan.....

Subject to various conditions and restrictions, husbands can end the marriage simply by declaring they are divorcing their wife – known as a Talaq. A wife can also initiate a divorce (known as a Khula), and if the husband agrees, the marriage can be ended. If he contests it, a third party can dissolve the contract – which is where Sharia councils step in. Without the council rulings, the panel tell me, many women feel they are still married in the sight of God – even if they have had a civil divorce....
