To those that are struggling to figure things out, I’m here to tell you that you will get through it, just like I did. Unfortunately, what we study doesn’t guarantee that we will end up doing it and enjoying it. Keep reaching out, keep looking, keep researching and you will find what really calls out to you.....


One is “virtual ISIS.” It is satanic, cruel and amorphous; it disseminates its ideology through the internet. It has adherents across Europe and the Muslim world. In my opinion, that ISIS is the primary threat to us, because it has found ways to deftly pump out Sunni jihadist ideology that inspires and gives permission to those Muslims on the fringes of society who feel humiliated — from London to Paris to Cairo — to recover their dignity via headline-grabbing murders of innocents....

The Quran places great emphasis on individual and collective research. It gives great importance to ‘men of understanding’ – scientists and engineers – whom it frequently refers to as ‘men who are wise’, ‘people of knowledge’, ‘the ones who consider’ and ‘those who understand’. No wonder Islam’s inspiration for scientific investigation served as a catalyst for the Muslim spirit of enquiry in the heyday of their civilisation. They made revolutionary contributions to scientific thought and activity at a time when the pursuit of science was considered taboo and punished like witchcraft elsewhere in the world.....


Don't fool yourselves, the rabbis were told at that meeting. According to a military source, the rabbis were also told that they were not the ones to come up with the idea of separate barracks and restrooms for men and women in the army. The order has existed in the IDF since day one. The chief of staff promised to enforce this order more vigorously and ensure that there are no exceptions. The rabbis also received an assurance that the army is not being run according to the agenda of feminist organizations, nor does it subject itself to such groups. .....


Rigid interpretation of the veil as a metaphor for obscurantism is recent, thanks to Wahhabism and the Salafi movement that obfuscated the free spirit of Islam and misconstrued Quranic teachings. Even Prophet Muhammad never advocated that women must wear a Hijab. Bukhari’s Hadith (compilation of Prophet Muhammad’s teachings) mentions a specific teaching with a story attached. A woman approached Prophet Muhammad and asked whether she should wear a veil after marriage. The Prophet answered that whether married or unmarried, she was not required to hide her face from strangers or male gazers because those determined to gaze at women would continue to gaze, anyway, whether or not one wore a veil. Prophet Muhammad added that the sacredness of an uncovered face is its Hijab.....


The Quran requires that you read it in full. No “cafeteria Quran” here. As Quran 3:8 says, “We believe in it, the whole is from our Lord.” Isis and Islamophobes instead cherry pick. Quran 3:8 pre-emptively calls out people who cherry pick as “perverse” people, declaring, “…those in whose hearts is perversity seek discord and wrong interpretation of [the Quran].”....

Apart from the major regional divisions in the Muslim world based on religious factional divisions; even internally almost all these countries have Sunnis and Shias population within their borders. Many Sunni majority countries have sizeable Shia population and vice versa. Therefore this alliance based on ‘Them and Us’, the ‘Inner and Outer’ and those ‘of us and amongst us’ grouping of people does not augur well for internal unity of any country let alone the Muslim world as a whole.....

किसी अंतर्राष्ट्रीय अधिकारी की ओर से यह एक अच्छी अभिव्यक्ति थी। वह ईसाई हैं और इसके बावजूद उन्होंने इस्लामी आस्था की सराहना की है लेकिन संयुक्त राष्ट्र का मिशन ऐसे प्रतीकात्मक अभिव्यक्ति तक ही सीमित नहीं रहना चाहिए बल्कि संयुक्त राष्ट्र को शांति और न्याय की बहाली के लिए गंभीर कदम उठाना चाहिए क्योंकि जहाँ न्याय और दया का बोलबाला होगा, अल्लाह के दीन भी बुलंद होगा। इसके लिए स्पष्टीकरण के समुद्र में गोता लगानें की भी आवश्यकता नहीं होगी। यह एक कठिन बात है और इसके लिए बहुत कौशल की आवश्यकता पड़ती है।


اسلام کو ایک جارح مذہب اور مسلمانوں کو دہشت گرد قوم قرار دینا اسلام کے محکم اصولوں سے بے خبری کی دلیل یا دیدہ و دانستہ تنگ نظری کی بدترین مثال ہے۔ اسلام ہمیشہ مذہبی تقدس اور قومی تشحص و امتیاز ، انسانیت نوازی برقرار رکھنے کے لئے عمل پیہم او رجہد مسلسل کی اجازت ضرور دیتا ہے اور تبلیغ وہدایت کی ہر ممکن راہ کو خوش اسلوبی کے ساتھ طے کرنے کی تعلیم پر زور دیتا ہے۔ اللہ تعالیٰ نے ( سورہ النحل ) میں فرمایا ’’ اے نبی اپنے رب کے راستے کی طرف حکمت اور عمدہ نصیحت کے ساتھ دعوت دو اور لوگوں سے مباحثہ کروایسے طریقہ پر جو بہترین ہو‘‘۔

Since the bloodless coup, in 1970, that brought the family to power, the Assad dynasty—the founding father, Hafez, and his heir and second son, Bashar—has exasperated nine American Presidents. “Time-consuming, nerve-racking, and bizarre,” Kissinger said of his sessions with Hafez al-Assad. Republican and Democratic Administrations alike have coaxed and cajoled, prodded and praised, and, most recently, confronted and condemned the Assads to induce policy changes...


The conflict has taken an especially heavy toll on the adult male population, with several tens of thousands of Aleppan men killed or maimed in the past six years. Many more have been drafted by the government or are fighting in the ranks of one of Syria’s many militias, for or against al-Assad’s regime....


Turkey matters not just for its size, but also as a bellwether of the political forces shaping the world. For centuries it was the seat of a great empire. Today, as a frontier state, it must cope with the violence spewing out of war-ravaged Syria; it is a test case of whether democracy can be reconciled with political Islam; and it must navigate between Western liberalism and the authoritarian nationalism epitomised by Russia. In recent years under Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey has gone backwards.....


The weakened norm emboldens Mr. Assad’s use of chemical weapons for two reasons. First, his commanders face less of a taboo in deploying them and so are less likely to object. And, second, Mr. Assad has little to gain in upholding a norm that never worked to his benefit....

Fame and a public persona came early to Malala who, let us not forget, did not ask to be shot in the head by the Taliban — and there are those who still believe the whole thing was somehow faked anyway. She was in her early teens and although she had some small fame in Pakistan she cannot have been prepared for what followed when she opened her eyes in a Birmingham hospital.....


Islamic sources of the Qur’an, Hadith literature and Epistemology, offer some guidance as to how to navigate through the modern media.  As Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a) is narrated to have said, “Working without proper understanding and insight is like travelling in the wrong direction; it only takes one further away from their destination.” In this context, turning to propagandist news for guidance and insight into what is happening in the world will only send you further from the truth.....


India’s Muslims often speak out against discrimination, but this movement of theirs has not yielded even one person of the likes of A P J Abdul Kalam. Similarly, Dalit leaders have initiated a movement for putting an end to discrimination against Dalits, yet they have not produced even one person of the stature of B R Ambedkar. These facts are a wake-up call to rethink our position. ....


But when the new era verges, nothing but a change in Prophethood can usher it in and match the unprecedented capaciousness of its mind. So it is the mission of Abraham to reintroduce monotheism in the globalizing world—and this time for good. For the world will never after return to a state vacant of monotheism....


The most important of these three cases is the petition filed on the subject of triple Talaq, Nikah Halala and polygamy. The title of this petition is Shayara Bano v. Union of India. Under Articles of Indian constitution 14, 15, 21, and 25, this petition has challenged the constitutionality of the three issues; triple Talaq at one go (giving Talaq three times on one occasion by pronouncing Talaq, Talaq, Talaq), Nikah Halala (which involves a female divorcee marrying someone else, consummating the marriage and then getting a divorce in order to make it allowable to remarry her previous husband) and polygamy...

दुनिया में दीन की दावत की निस्वार्थ सेवा और अल्लाह के बन्दों तक उसका संदेश पहुंचाने में सक्रिय जमाअत में गुटीय कलह का प्रभाव मुंबई में नज़र आया। मलाड क्षेत्र की कोकनी पाड़ह की नूरानी मस्जिद में 5 मार्च को तबलीगी जमाअत के दो समूहों में आपसी तकरार और गरमा-गरमी, लाठी-डंडे के स्वतंत्र उपयोग तक पहुँच गई, अल्लाह के दीन की दावत देने वालों के कपड़े और दाढ़ी खून से भीग गए। अस्पताल में भर्ती किए गए, पुलिस ने हिरासत में लिया अब पुलिस वैन के साथ पुलिसकर्मियों को मस्जिद के बाहर तैनात किया गया है। बताया जाता है कि अफ्रीका से आई एक जमाअत के कयाम पर दोनों समूहों में झगड़ा हो गया था। अदालत से जमानत हुई, स्थिति तनावपूर्ण हैं।
