Therefore, there should be a paradigm shift from logical based approach to nature-based approach for understanding Sufism and their philosophy which has its roots in religion. We need to reexamine the religious texts of Sufis and Rishis. And, we need to make our faith very strong enough by understanding the metaphysical outlook of different religions which Sufism and Rishiyat had to come across in its path of growth and development...

Almighty Allah reveals in the Holy Qur’an: “And the servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth easily, and when the ignorant address them harshly and cruelly, they say words of peace (Salaam!).” (Surah Al-Furqan 25:63.). Realistically speaking, we will not come across good people at all times in our life; there will always be people who will test our patience, our moral endurance and our spiritual fortitude by vexing, taunting, troubling and persecuting us. However, according to this Qur’anic passage, it is the believer’s duty to react to our persecutors with greetings of “Salaam!” or “Peace be with you!”. Saying “Salaam” is the sign of a sound heart, of a heart at ease, as mentioned in the above Qur’anic quotation from Surah Al-Furqan. In other words, a pure and clean heart or a "heart at ease" is a heart which has reached security and peace, a heart of taqwah (piety) that respects the rights of Allah and the rights of fellow humans. Saying “Salaam!” sincerely to one-and-all is an affirmation of peace in our whole being, and a commitment of a genuine Muslim towards world peace and harmony among all peoples of good will....

"اے محمد !ان اشخاص کو زیادہ ہدایت مت کرو،ان کےلئے اسلام کے واسطے مشیت ازلی نہیں ہے،یہ مسلمان نہ ہوں گے "۔اور ہر امر کے ثبوت میں اکثر آیات قرآنی موجود ہیں،تو پس کیونکر خلاف مشیت پروردگار کوئی امر ظہور پذیر ہوسکتا ہے،کیونکہ مشیت کے معنی ارادہ پروردگار عالم کے ہیں،تو جب کسی کام کا ارادہ اﷲ تعالٰی نے کیا تو بندہ اس کے خلاف کیونکر کرسکتا تھا۔اور اﷲ نے جب قبل پیدائش کسی بشر کے ارادہ اس کے کافر رکھنے کا کرلیا تھا توا ب وہ مسلمان کیونکر ہوسکتا ہے " یَہدِی مَن یَّشَآءُ"[1]۔ القرآن الکریم ۲/ ۲۷۲ کے صاف معنی یہ ہیں کہ جس امر کی طرف اس کی خواہش ہوگی وہ ہوگا۔پس انسان مجبور ہے اس سے باز پرس کیونکر ہوسکتی ہےکہ اس نے فلاں کام کیوں کیا،کیونکہ اس وقت اس کو ہدایت ازجانب باری عزاسمہ ہوگی وہ اختیار کرے گا۔علم اور ارادہ میں بین فرق ہے،یہاں من یشاء سے اس کی خواہش ظاہر ہوتی ہے۔


IT HAS been over a week since Jamal Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi journalist and government critic (pictured), walked into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to get paperwork for a marriage. No one has seen him since. Turkish officials say that he was killed by a team of Saudi assassins, who dismembered his body, on orders from the top of the royal court (see article). The Saudis retort that Mr Khashoggi left the building of his own accord. If so, when? Are there witnesses or written records? Why is there no security-camera footage? And why did 15 Saudis fly in on private jets just before he disappeared, and leave shortly after? The Saudis must provide answers, or the world will assume the worst.


The heaviest price for this indifference will be paid by the Saudi people, who will be intimidated into silence by the length their prince is willing to go to silence dissent or even mild, well-informed and well-meant criticism of his policies and conduct In November 2014, Khashoggi had written: “Democracy, popular participation or shura … will inevitably be realised...


The purpose of this examination of judgements and proceedings of the Supreme Court over the last two years at this juncture is merely to say that while celebrate this victory we must, we must be conscious that the theatre of the battle perhaps lies elsewhere.

Though Islamic law does not bar women from praying in mosques, Kerala’s more traditionalist Sunni Muslims keep women out of their places of worship. Sunnis make up the majority of Kerala’s Muslims, who constitute 26% of the state’s population. By contrast, mosques administered by the ultraconservative Salafi sects and the sociopolitical organisation Jama’at-e-Islami provide segregated prayer spaces for women....

The Only Person We Can Change
Roshan Shah, New Age Islam

“Please forgive me for my foolishness,” Romi would pray to God. “I used to ask you to transform the whole world, and then to transform my family. But never once did I ask you to transform the one person I should have—me. But that’s what I request you to please do now, God, before it’s too late.”...


Rabi’a Basri is a classical example of how faith and love can set you free. She was the first female Sufi Saint of Islam, Rabia al-Adawiyya, also known as Rabi’a Basri. She made one of the greatest contributions towards the development of Sufism. She was a teacher of women as well as of men; a woman who called no man her master. Her reputation excels that of many Muslim men within the early days of Sufism....

History of conflicts is written by historians who after all are humans. They have their biases, axes to grind and or the knowledge that they have of the historic events, may not be complete and so history cannot be taken as the absolute truth. There is always an element of doubt, particularly so if the history is viewed with tinted vision, religious fervour, beliefs and prejudices. With religious biases such conflicts are disguised as 'God's Will' and therefore presented with labels of just wars, holy wars, crusades and jihad. The irony being that, often the inter religious wars, are waged in the name of the same 'God' that all combatants in the conflict fight for....

باایں ہمہ کسی کا خالق ہونا،یعنی ذات ہو یا صفت،فعل ہو یاحالت،کسی معدوم چیز کو عدم سے نکال کر لباس وجود پہنا دینا،یہ اسی (اللہ عز و جل) کاکام ہے ، یہ نہ اس نے کسی کے اختیار میں دیا نہ کوئی اس کا اختیار پاسکتا تھا،کہ تمام مخلوقات خود اپنی حد ذات میں نیست ہیں (یعنی ان کی حقیقت معدوم ہونا ہے ، لیکن یہ موجود ہیں اس لئے کہ اللہ نے انہیں عارضی طور پر وجود بخشا ہے) ، ایك نیست دوسرے نیست کو کیا ہست بناسکے (یعنی جس کی حقیقت خود معدوم ہونا ہو وہ کیا کسی معدوم کو پیکر وجود عطاء کرے) ، ہست بنانا اسی کی شان ہےجو آپ اپنی ذات سے ہست حقیقی وہست مطلق ہے(یعنی اللہ عز و جل کا موجود ہونا حقیقی ، مستقل ، دائمی ، ازلی اور ابدی ہے وہ اپنے وجود اور بقا میں قطعاً کسی کا محتاج نہیں) ، ہاں یہ اس نے اپنی رحمت اور غنائے مطلق سے عادات اجراء فرمائے کہ بندہ جس امر کی طر ف قصد کرے اپنے جوارح ادھر پھیر ے ،مولا تعالٰی اپنے ارادہ سے اسے پیدا فرمادیتا ہے۔

At the time of Independence in 1947, there were only 137 madrassas in Pakistan. According to a 1956 survey, there were 244 madrassas in all of Pakistan (excluding East Pakistan). In Pakistan at present, a reasonable estimate based on multiple empirical and journalistic sources suggests that there are between 20,000 and 25,000 madrassas. Any one student can be persuaded/pressured into becoming a suicide-bomber to kill in the cause of Islam....


The continued chaos offers Iran a low-cost opportunity to drain Saudi resources, and it opens up new possibilities for Al Qaeda and the Islamic State to take root in Yemen. M.B.S.’s overly ambitious and misguided foreign policy initiatives have left Saudi Arabia weaker and the region less stable, undermining American objectives. The same goes for Mr. Khashoggi’s disappearance. ...

تم میں خدا نے کیا پیدا کیا ؟ ارادہ و اختیار،تو ان کے پیدا ہونے سے تم صاحب ارادہ۔صاحب اختیار ہوئے یا مضطر،مجبور،ناچار،صاحبو ! تمھاری اور پتھر کی حرکت میں فرق کیا تھا،یہ کہ وہ ارادہ و اختیار نہیں رکھتا اور تم میں اﷲ تعالٰی نے یہ صفت پیدا کی عجب عجب کہ وہی صفت جس کے پیدا ہونے نے تمھاری حرکات کو پتھر کی حرکات سے ممتاز کردیا،اسی کی پیدائش کو اپنے پتھر ہوجانے کا سبب سمجھو یہ کیسی الٹی مت ہے ؟ اﷲ تعالٰی نے ہماری آنکھیں پیدا کیں ان میں نور خلق کیا اس سے ہم انکھیارے (دیکھنے والے) ہوئے نہ کہ معاذ اﷲ اندھے یونہی اس نے ہم میں ارادہ و اختیار پیدا کیا اس سے ہم اس کی عطاکے لائق مختار ہوئے،نہ کہ الٹے مجبور۔
