Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s electoral victory has been extraordinary despite the Opposition’s attacks on him on various issues: farmers’ distress, youth unemployment, poor implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), demonetisation, lynchings, Hindutva, assault on institutions, media gagging, intimidation of intellectuals, tampering of electronic voting machines, politicisation of the armed forces and the Rafale deal. But the country was not swayed by these accusations….

... if a search does not end up promoting hate preachers such as Choudary who distort Islam from within, it often leads to WebPages that defame Islam from without. Such websites include Jihad Watch...

For decades, Pakistan has been harbouring terrorism and jihad by extending support to the jihadist groups in Asia. In recent years, its spy agency, Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) has been actively helping ARSA as well as other regional terror outfits with logistics and training. Pakistani ISI has hands behind trafficking in narcotics as well as printing and distributing counterfeit currency [mostly Indian rupees], which helps it in generating fund....

What Does Taqwa Mean?
Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

The methodology that I have followed to derive the meaning of Taqwa was to let the Quran teach me its meaning. This is the methodology that I follow for all my articles. To the best of my knowledge and belief, no other person has derived the same meaning of Taqwa, because no one else follows the same methodology with the same Taqwa or intensity. They follow it loosely, or without adequate Taqwa, which is why their meanings do not fit well the usage of the word in the Quran....

اس نظم میں شاعر نے کہیں دور اشارہ کر کے ایک مسجد کی نشاندہی کی ہے ۔ برگدی گھنی چھاؤں میں ماضی اور حال گناہگار نمازی کی طرح رات کی تاریک کفن کے نیچے اپنے اعمال پر آہ و زاری کرتے ہیں ۔ اسی برگد کی چھاؤں میں ایک ویران سی مسجد ہے جس کا ٹوٹا ہوا کلس پاس بہتی ہوئی ندی کو تکا کرتا ہے ۔ اسی مسجد کی ٹوٹی ہوئی دیوار پر کوئی الّو (چنڈول) کوئی پھیکا سا گیت چھیڑ دیا کرتا ہے ۔

دیگر مضمون: اختر الایمان کی نظم ’ مسجد‘ ایک دلکش مرقع ہے


Unsurprisingly, the Palestinians have rejected what they deem as the "slap of the century" and refuse to participate in any meeting that is meant to facilitate its implementation. But why are so many Arab governments - who have repeatedly voiced their support for Palestinian national rights in a state of their own – facilitating...

Most of what is now Portugal was under Islamic rule for over 500 years. In 711, Muslim armies sailed from North Africa and quickly took control of large parts of Portugal and Spain, which became known in Arabic as al-Andalus....


Why the Muslims of yesteryears got the respect and goodwill of the Sinhala and Tamil communities? Muslims behaved according to Islam – they were trustworthy, honest, and helpful, empathized with the difficulties of others, never hypocritical and so on. But today most of the Muslims, especially businesspersons, lack the qualities...


Obedience towards parents has been in very clear terms made subservient, to the cause of worshipping none, but the True One Allah. Abraham, who even Allah the most merciful, refers to as a kind hearted man, was admonished, when he supplicated for his father Azar,...


Thus, Islamophobia has become a tool for populist politicians to describe Muslims as the ‘other’ and the ones to blame for the economic or cultural decline of a Western country....

At the same time, however, others should not make the mistake of judging Islamic civilization by looking at its worst products, many of which are now rampant. It is a great civilization that has made significant contributions to humanity, especially the West....

Sufis believe in love for humanity and prefer Haqooqul Ibad to Haqooq-ullah for they contend that if one wishes to please Allah, the sublime, he must please his creatures. It is vividly reflected in their literature.....

There is certainly a need to bridge the chasm which has been created between the Muslim community and the ruling dispensation. Owing to a number of factors, Muslims have thought that the BJP is their enemy number one. This perception needs to change for the very simple and pragmatic reason that no minority can prosper without cooperating closely with the state. But for this there has to be genuine rethinking amongst the Muslims on a number of issues....

जब मुसलामानों की एक बड़ी जनसंख्या अपनी जाती ज़िन्दगी में कुरआनी शरीअत नाफ़िज़ कर ले तभी रियासत के कानून में परिवर्तन हो सकेगीl लोकतंत्र एक बेहतरीन और वाहिद रास्ता है और निश्चित रूप से यही एक ऐसे धर्म में परिवर्तन पैदा करने का इस्लामी रास्ता है जिसका एलान यह है कि “दीन में जबर व इकराह की कोई गुंजाइश नहीं है”l

قرآن و سنت  اور احوال سلف صالحین کے مطالعہ سے یہ بات واضح ہوتی ہے کہ اللہ کے جو نیک بندے  اس دار فانی سے کوچ کر چکے ہیں یا جو اب بھی زندہ ہیں ان کے دل ہمیشہ خشیت الٰہی کے نور سے معمور رہتے ہیں اس لئے کہ سچی خشیت ہی معصیت سے کامل طہارت کی بنیاد ہے۔  لیکن اس کا ہرگز یہ مطلب نہیں کہ جنہوں نے خود کو گناہوں سے پاک کر لیا ان کے لئے خشیت ایک بے معنیٰ شئی ہو گئی اور انہیں اب اللہ کا خوف کرنے کی کوئی ضرورت نہیں بلکہ قرآن کی تعلیمات سے یہ مستفاد ہوتا  ہے کہ نیک اور صالح بندوں کے لئے خوف اور خشیت الٰہی کی ضرورت اور اہمیت و افادیت میں مزید اضافہ ہو جاتا ہے۔ اور بزرگان دین کی روش سے بھی یہی ثابت ہے ۔


In addition to Saudi Arabia’s human rights abuses is also another little noted but critical reason to close the Centre, and in fact other similar foreign-funded Centres with funding from Islamic states that claim to advance “interrelgious and intercultural dialogue.” Such centres are also often fronts for advancing the Sharia values of Salafi-promoting states....


There are important geopolitical dimensions to these three scholars’ files. Odah, Qarni, and Omari are not dissidents or revolutionaries. None of them called for the royal family to step down from power. For most of their careers, they avoided criticizing Al Saud royals.....


Akin to America’s 9/11, Sri Lanka’s 21/04 – the black Easter Sunday where a spate of despicable terror attacks targeted some churches and high-end hotels by an ‘extremist’ group – has become the latest watershed which would hereafter divide this island nation’s post-independence period...


Reflecting Khan’s understanding that spirituality isn’t something cut off from daily life, but, rather, deeply rooted in it, this book is framed around anecdotes from the lives of people (famous as well as ‘ordinary’), aspects of Nature, key events in the history of countries, reports in newspapers and so on....
