Preachers should understand that those attending sermons come from all walks of life and from various professions. Friday congregations, when the majority of the people of this country have their ears tuned to the sermon from the pulpit should address such present-day issues. With such a captive audience, it would be a shame not to take full advantage of the situation. Let them be touched by the words reaching their ears....

 

After the Qur’an, the life of the Prophet is the best source of guidance. While elaborating eternal truths, he simultaneously exemplified through his scrupulous behaviour. His life is full of such incidents, where he projects an appropriate sense of morality. Even his bitter enemies confessed that his ethics were great. His thought for human benefit, his works of kindness, his words of love, his effort for peaceful coexistence and his prayers for human salvation are brilliant examples for all to emulate....

 

As I started the in-depth study of the Qur’an some 20 years ago, I came across a passage about the plant kingdom that really caught my attention.

He Who has made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; has enabled you to go about therein by roads (and channels); and has sent down water from the sky. With it have We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others. 20:53...

In the years that the Taliban were busy keeping women at home and uneducated, Akram was uncovering a radically different version of Islamic tradition. Its luminaries included women like Ummal-Darda, a seventh-century jurist and scholar who taught jurisprudence in the mosques of Damascus and Jerusalem. Her students were men, women, and even the caliph. Another woman in Akram’s research discoveries: the fourteenth- century Syrian scholar Fatimah al- Bataihiyyah, who taught both men and women in the Prophet’s mosque in Medina, drawing students from as far away as Fez....

It denounces the practice of celebrating the birth of the Prophet, accusing these people of imitating Christians – the “unbelievers” – in their celebration of the birth of Jesus. Those who make the graves of prophets and the righteous into mosques are also considered evil-natured. Saudi Arabia even had a plan to clear the grave of the Prophet to make way for development! They have already cleared many Islamic historical structures in the name of expansion and development for the Haj and Umrah pilgrimages where they make billions of dollars annually. Apparently, to the Saudi dynasty, money talks more than anything else....

 

ध्यान देने योग्य बात यह है कि आम चुनाव से पहले पाकिस्तान तहरीक ए इंसाफ ने अपने मेनू फेस्टो में भी स्पष्ट रूप से अपना मिशन पाकिस्तान को एक ऐसा इस्लामी कल्याणकारी राज्य बनाना प्रदर्शित किया था जो मानवीय और न्यायप्रिय सिद्धांतों पर आधारित होगी जिस पर मीसाक़े मदीना का आधार थाl जो कि नबी सल्लल्लाहु अलैहि वसल्लम के राज्य में मानवाधिकार का एक लिखित घोषणापत्र थाl

 

I think it could have been much better than what happened in the end - today the situation is getting worse, more and more settlements are being built. “I think Israel will not survive in the end, not the Israel I knew, I honestly do not think that in 50 years Israel will exist as Israel, look at demography, how many Arabs will be there be in another 50 years’ time?”...

 

Wariness bordering on hostility toward India is a part of the Pakistan Army’s institutional memory. No civilian leader, least of all Mr. Khan, can change that. He was the military’s chosen candidate for the job of Prime Minister as events leading up to the elections made evident. Mr. Sharif and several other leaders of the PML-N were either disqualified or incarcerated to prevent them from participating in the elections...

 

There is a pattern here – Muslim women are a quick, easy way to make a point that furthers your interests with certain sections of the media and my party – a useful political football. Where’s the harm in that, you might ask – it’s just politics. Well, this approach is not just offensive, it is dangerous. Johnson’s words have once again validated the view of those that other Muslims....

 

This week, even the Prime Minister was moved to call on the ex-foreign secretary to apologise for claiming Muslim women in Burqas “look like letter boxes” and comparing them to “bank robbers.” Boxed into a corner, Boris turned freedom of speech into the last refuge of a scoundrel, claiming his critics were trying to shut down debate about “difficult issues”....

 

No advocate of human rights, civil liberties and due process would defend the current regime in Iran – with its history of abuses, of clamping down on press freedom, of persecuting minorities and of failing to offer democratic protections and due process. The fact that the US claims the moral high ground when it comes to human rights and civil liberties, including press freedom, is one of the reasons why Trump’s own attacks on the media have been so horrifying...

In order to carry out the command of the holy Prophet (peace be upon him), Hazrat Ali was asked to record the peace-treaty which began with “Bismilla Hir Rahman Nir Rahim” meaning “In the name of Allah the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious”. However, the stubborn pagan Suhail bin Amr objected and said that he was not aware of these words. He insisted that “Bi Ismika Allahumma” should be written instead. The Prophet (peace be upon him) commanded Hazrat Ali to write what Suhail wanted. Then Hazrat obeyed....

मुहम्मद सल्लल्लाहु अलैहि वसल्लम की उम्मत को उलेमा और इमामों की इताअत से भी आज़ाद रखा गया है, हर मुसलमान स्वयं कुरआन का अध्ययन कर सकता है और अपनी समझ के अनुसार उस पर अमल भी कर सकता हैl कुरआन एक ऐसी किताब है जो हक़ के रास्ते के चाहने वालों के लिए हर चीज को ऐसा स्पष्ट करके पेश करती है जिसमें संदेह की कोई गुंजाइश नहीं रहती है, इसमें किसी भी बहाने के तहत किसी भी बातिल की पैरवी की कोई गुंजाइश नहीं हैl अल्लाह ने हम में से हर एक को कुरआन के बारे में अपने इल्म और कुरआन की बेहतर समझ के अनुसार इसकी पैरवी करने की पूर्ण स्वतंत्रता प्रदान की हैl

 

Unlike Trump, Canadian leaders have consistently supported the Badawi family. In 2013, a year after Raif Badawi’s arrest, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, of the Conservative Party, granted Badawi’s wife and children political asylum in Canada. This summer, under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, of the Liberal Party, Canada granted them citizenship. After Canada called for the release Saudi Arabia’s peaceful activists, Marie-Pier Baril...

While taking classes at the US Army War College, the officer, a devout Muslim, sometimes led Friday prayers at the local mosque. During campus debates he took exception to those who claimed that political Islam was incompatible with democracy. In his final paper he argued that Arab democracies must include Islamists, even “radical ones”....

 

Religious-ethnic violence has dominated the Pakistani landscape for several decades. Every now and then, when an identity crisis of national significance surfaces extra measures by otherwise liberal leaders, sweep in to woo support from the masses. While this clause bodes well with the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the state-backed persecution or the silence thereof for the said crimes isn’t warranted....

 

During Ghulam Ahmad’s life, Islamic scholars expressed disapproval with other scholars or individual Ahmadis. However, in 1947, after Pakistan was established as a separate Muslim homeland, some Islamic scholars publicly attacked the theology of the Ahmadis. Various politicians harnessed the controversy to their nationalist politics....

 

قربانی کی حقیقت:قربانی کا عمل اگرچہ ہر امت کے لئے رہا ہے جیساکہ اللہ تعالیٰ کا ارشاد ہے: ہم نے ہر امت کے لئے قربانی مقرر کی تاکہ وہ چوپائیوں کے مخصوص جانوروں پر اللہ کا نام لیں جو اللہ تعالیٰ نے عطا فرمائے۔ (سورۃ الحج ۳۴) لیکن حضرت ابراہیم اور حضرت اسماعیل علیہما السلام کی اہم وعظیم قربانی کی وجہ سے قربانی کو سنت ابراہیمی کہا جاتا ہے اور اسی وقت سے اس کو خصوصی اہمیت حاصل ہوگئی۔ چنانچہ حضرت ابراہیم اور حضرت اسماعیل علیہما السلام کی عظیم قربانی کی یاد میں اللہ تعالیٰ کے حکم پر حضور اکرم ﷺ کی اتباع میں جانوروں کی قربانی کی جاتی ہے جو قیامت تک جاری رہے گی ان شاء اللہ۔

 

On the one hand is the temptation to compromise on the issue of right and wrong to avoid hurt feelings. On the other is the temptation to correct the wrong with total disregard to the fact that one might be insulting or injuring the other person. While we may see these extreme attitudes in people who seem to be poles apart in terms of their practice of religion, both stem from the same narrow vision of religion that holds our dealings with others as worldly affairs, outside the realm of Islam!...

 

Her primary finding is that it is a faulty presumption that only Muslims use Sharia courts as an adjudicatory mechanism. Her detailed ethnography of adjudication shows that different kinds of adjudicatory bodies including Sharia courts, caste councils, sect councils, civil society organisations etc, do adjudicate in family disputes. Sharia courts are the norm and not an exception....

A top Islamic scholar, an inspiration to champions of women’s rights, a military commander riding on camelback, and a fatwa-issuing jurist, Aisha’s intellectual standing and religious authority were astonishing, by the standards of both our own time and hers. Aisha is not the only wife of Muhammad whose life explodes notions of what constitutes a “traditional” Muslim woman. Khadija ran a caravan business in Mecca. A wealthy and successful trader, she was also a twice-widowed single mother, fifteen years Muhammad’s senior, and his boss.....
