For the first 23 years after independence in 1947, Pakistanis were denied the right to vote. Since 1970, they have been allowed to vote intermittently but they are still denied the right to vote freely. The upcoming July 25 election in Pakistan has been marred by a series of attacks, some by the judiciary and others by the country’s ubiquitous military-intelligence machinery, aimed at politically decapitating former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his Pakistan Muslim League...

 

Although everybody knows that death is inevitable, nobody is ready to recognise this fact and continue to desire to live for as long as possible. The epic literature of the past comprised many stories wherein rulers and aristocrats indulged in searches for miraculous, potent medicines to escape death and live an eternal life....

 

Majlis-e-Ahrar-e-Islam was a religious party closely allied with Indian National Congress during the 1930s and 1940s. While its president Mazhar Ali Azhar himself claimed to be from a Shia background in evidence before the Munir-Kayani Inquiry Committee after partition, the party by and large was a Sunni-supremacist party. In the curious political permutations of pre-partition British India, Ahrars being fiercely anti-British found themselves in alliance with secular socialist Jawaharlal Nehru. One of the key agenda items of the Ahrars was the idea of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat....

 

In the elections, the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), a motley group of religious parties is also contesting elections. The key players of this alliance — the Jamaat e Islami (JI) and Jamiat e Ulema Islam-Fazl — now appear to be moderate democrats compared to the dangerous rhetoric that the ultra right groups employ. For decades, the JI was seen as a villain by Pakistan’s liber-Left for the kind of politics it introduced and especially the role it played under Zia regime. We certainly have graduated by allowing more insidious players becoming mainstream.....

 

Though Fuat Sezgin had started with the Islamic aesthetics and hermeneutics, "Geschichte des Arabischen Schrifttums" concentrates on natural sciences undertaken by Muslims for more than seven centuries. However, the 17 volumes' study introduces poetry, history, Quran and Hadith studies, Sufism, Islamic theology together with natural sciences including medicine, pharmacology, zoology, chemistry, mathematics, botanic, astronomy, meteorology and such....

 
Bilquis Bano Edhi
Rashid Samnakay, New Age Islam

In the Islamic Republic, a misnomer at that, compounded by the title Pakistan where a woman like Bilquis Bano is showing the male dominated pure-Muslims elite what an State is supposed to do for it citizens without the flag waving of Islam. It is a bright light at the end of dark tunnel for others to emulate....

There is a need to provide a way out for foreign fighters, to encourage them to surrender and provide them with personal safety while awaiting trial. Their families, especially young children, should be extricated and taken home to protect them from abuse and exploitation, lest they become the next generation of terrorist fighters. In most areas it is feasible and certainly necessary to expedite stabilization and development programs to create jobs and provide livelihoods for young people to prevent them from falling prey to recruitment by Daesh....

 

Look closely at figures of the Virgin Mary and Joseph, and you will notice something odd. Their halos feature Arabic script. That might seem sacrilege in a Christian religious painting. Yet as a new exhibition in Florence, at the Uffizi and the Museo Nazionale del Bargello, sets out to show, such cultural and religious cross-dressing was common at the time. Entitled “Islamic Art and Florence from the Medici to the 20th Century”, the show explores “the knowledge, exchange, dialogue and mutual influence that existed between the arts of east and west”.

In all this, the highest judiciary of the country has become the butt of jokes on social media, and the society at large. It seems to be collapsing under the weight of its current partnership with the military establishment in the civil-military battle. While taking “Nawaz Sharif to task”, it allowed former dictator Pervez Musharraf to leave the country. It even found a way to force the government to issue Musharraf with a new passport and identity card.....

 

A Bedouin came to the prophet, grabbed the stirrup of his camel and said: O the messenger of God! Teach me something to go to heaven with it. Prophet said: “As you would have people do to you, do to them; and what you dislike to be done to you, don’t do to them. Now let the stirrup go...

 

(ذا غور کر کہ بارگاہ ایزدی میں) جب فرشتوں نے کہا کہ ہم ان (انسانوں) کے ذریعہ برپا کئے جانے والے فساد اور قتل و غارت گری کی تاب نہیں رکھتے ، تو ندائی آئی کہ (ٹھیک ہے) اگر میں انہیں تمہارے دَر پر بھیجوں تو لوٹا دینا اور انہیں تم سے فروخت کرنے آؤں تو مت خریدنا، اس ڈر سے کہ ان کی معصیت میری رحمت سے بڑھ جائے گی ، یا تمہیں اس بات کا خوف ہے کہ ان (کے وجود)کی آلودگی میری تنزیہہ و تقدیس کے دامن پر دھبہ لگا دیگی۔ (ائے نوریوں سن لو!) یہ وہ مشت خاک ہیں جو میری بارگاہ میں مقبول و مقرب ہیں۔ اور جب میں نے انہیں (اپنی بارگاہ میں) شرف قبولیت بخش ہی دیا ہے تو ان کی معصیت اور آلودگیوں سے انہیں کیا نقصان!

 

She repeatedly mentions how simple Muhammad's (PBUH) message was and how peaceful was the purpose of his revelation. Allah's guided Prophet wanted to bring a system to the fallen Arabs so that it could expel anarchy and put Islam on the map. She points out that unlike the followers of nearby Christians and Jews, Arabs had no revelation of their own. Muhammad, after taking over Mecca from the Quraysh without shedding a drop of blood, destroyed the idols from Kabah, and linked Islam with the story Abraham, Hagar and Ismail....

 

At the time, Prince Abdullah organized the kingdom’s first national dialogue conference that brought together 30 religious scholars representing Wahhabi and non-Wahhabi Sunnis, Sufis, Ismaili, and Shiites. Remarkably, the Wahhabi representatives did not include prominent members of the kingdom’s official religious establishment. Moreover, the presence of non-Wahhabis challenged Wahhabism’s principle of takfir or excommunication of those deemed to be apostates or non-Muslims that they often apply to Sufis and Shiites....

 

This comes within the UAE’s work to restore the status of an Islam that is open to others, a humanistic Islam that does not distrust those with different doctrines but seeks to create common space for different religions and communities, to undermine the threat of conflict and wars in the world....

इस बात से सभी परिचित हैं कि मौजूदा स्थिति संतोषजनक नहीं हैl इन संस्थाओं में जो शिक्षा दी जाती है मध्यकालीन और पुरानी है; वहाँ तर्क (मंतिक) की किताबें पढ़ाई जाती हैं जिन पर छात्र कई कई घंटे लगाते हैं लेकिन इससे उन्हें कुछ भी प्राप्त नहीं होताl एक समय था जब मदरसों से ना केवल फिकही विशेषज्ञों बल्कि बेहतरीन फलसफी, गणितज्ञ और यहाँ तक कि बेहतरीन वास्तुकार भी पैदा होते थेl लेकिन 1857 के बाद मदरसों में शिक्षा का दायरा केवल धार्मिक शिक्षा तक ही सीमित हो कर रह गयाl

 

The uprising in the Middle East was conveniently tagged as a ‘Facebook Revolution’, without critically analysing the link between any uprising/revolution and its communication system. Ironically, the protagonists of this Facebook Revolution have never enlightened us as to what happened to the Facebook Revolution in Syria, Yemen, Libya or even Egypt when the military staged a comeback? Or, why Facebook-and-Twitter did not work in Saudi Arabia, a highly wired and connected country...

 

That would put the final piece in place for Israel to build a substantial bloc of new settler homes to sever the West Bank in two. Those same settlements would also seal off West Bank Palestinians from East Jerusalem, the expected capital of a future Palestinian state, making a mockery of any peace agreement....

 

How is it possible for us and the government who always wanted to be seen at the forefront, championing the rights of the Palestinians and other persecuted Muslims, not to feel anguish and pain for the Uighurs and their present state of affairs, their trials, tribulations and torture? If these Uighurs were simply escaping the political persecution of the CCP, they should be protected at any cost, even if it upsets the Chinese to whom the previous government was indebted due to the hundreds of billions in loans. But this is a new dawn for a new Malaysia!...

 

One wonders how many elections, how many dramatic arrests (or non-arrests), how many rallies and verdicts will have to come to pass before Pakistani politics is not the realm of someone’s daughter, someone’s wife or someone’s sister. This election, creeping up on us, will not be the one to blaze that trail and make that crucial difference....

 

The conviction of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif by an accountability court last Friday has set the stage for him to portray himself as the latest martyr for democracy. He has argued, as others have done before him, that he is being punished not for corruption but for standing up to Pakistan’s invisible government — the military-intelligence combine that has dominated the country effectively since 1958....

 

اس تحریر میں مکتوب شریف کے بعض مقامات کی مناسب تسہیل و تفصیل کے لئے بنیادی طور پر زین الاسلام حضرت عبد الكريم بن هوازن بن عبد الملك القشيری علیہ (متوفى 465 ہجری) کی فن تصوف میں امہات الکتب میں شمار کی جانے والی ایک مایہ ناز تصنیف رسالہ قشیریہ اور حضرت علی بن عثمان الجلابی المعروف بہ داتا گنج بخش علی ہجویری رحمۃ اللہ علیہ (متوفی 465 ہجری) کی شہرہ آفاق تصنیف کشف المحجوب سے استفادہ کیا گیا ہے۔چونکہ آپ دونوں بزرگ ہم عصر ہیں اور حضرت داتا گنج بخش علی ہجویری رحمۃ اللہ علیہ نے زین الاسلام حضرت عبد الكريم بن هوازن بن عبد الملك القشيری کا ذکر اپنی تصنیف لطیف کشف المحجوب میں بڑے ادب اور اونچے القاب کے ساتھ کیا ہے۔ نیز بعد کے تقریباً تمام صوفیائے کرام نے ان دو عظیم ہستیوں کی تصنیفات سے بھر پور استفادہ کیا ہے ،لہٰذا راقم الحروف نے بھی ان کے تحریری شہ پاروں سے استفادہ کر کے اپنی بات مستند کرنے کی کوشش کی ہے۔
