It makes sense to latch Mujahid’s Rahmat ul lil Alamin policy to the UAE’s tolerance manifesto. However, compassion towards religious minorities in Malaysia, especially how Shia Muslims are perceived and treated, is still a work-in-progress that our state and federal authorities persist in ignoring.....

The clergy is required to counter the exclusivist Jihadi theology of violence and supremacism which is primarily based on the traditional Islamic theology of consensus of all schools of thought. This has to be done through a counter-narrative based on a new inclusivist theology of peace and pluralism. But to do that the clergy will have to work towards evolving a new theology that is different from the traditional theology taught in madrasas. It is this age-old theology that is used by Jihadis to propagate their message. 

It cannot be stressed enough that the reason Jihadis have been able to capture the imagination of thousands of our youth the world over is that they are not saying anything new. They are simply showing a way to practice what the ulema (religious scholars) have been preaching. The Jihadi narrative is the traditional Islamic theological narrative of Islam domination over all other religious beliefs, and eradication of what it considers the biggest crimes humanity can commit, particularly shirk, polytheism or idol worship, and kufr, rejection of the prophethood of Hazrat Mohammad (pbuh). All the most eminent scholars of Islam from Imam Ghazali (11th-12th century) to Imam Ibn-e-Taimiya (13th-14th century), Mujaddid Alf-e-Saani Sheikh Sirhindi (16th-17th century), Shah Waliullah Muhaddis Dehlavi (18th century) have shown a vision of political Islam that was finally given a more definite form in the 20th century by Maulana Syed Abul A’la Maududi, Hassan al-Banna, and Syed Qutb. The Jihadi ideologues of the 21st century may be stressing some parts of this traditional narrative more vigorously and downplaying some other aspects. But they are not saying anything that is entirely new or radically different.

Jihadi literature has not dropped from the sky all of a sudden. This is not the creation of Osama bin Laden or so-called “Khalifa” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Their narrative of world domination, fighting those who do not accept the message of Islam is basically what is taught in all our madrasas. The definition of Jihad as fighting those who do not accept the oneness of God and prophethood of Mohammad (pbuh) is found in books of every school of Sunni fiqh (jurisprudence), be it Hanafi, Malaki, Shafei or Hanbali. Indeed, even Shia theology does not differ much with Sunnis in matters of political Islam. They too want world domination for Islam and desire to subdue all non-Muslims.

ایک ایسے وقت میں جب اجودھیا میں رام مندر کی تعمیر کے لئے ٹرسٹ بنائے جانے پر اکثریتی فرقے میں ٹکراؤ اور اختلاف کھل کر سامنے آرہا ہے، خدا کے لیے ایسی کوئی کوشش مت کیجئے جس سے اس کا رُخ ایک بارپھر مسلمانوں کی طرف ہوجائے او رہندو مسلم تنازعے کی نئی شکل اختیار کر کے ملک کے امن و سکون کو غارت کردے اور ہماری نئی نسلوں کو ایک بار پھر آزمائش میں ڈال دے۔........

A place of worship for Ahmadi Muslims in Pakistan cannot be called a mosque under Pakistani Law, which prohibits Ahmadis from claiming to be Muslim, under Ordinance XX [Anti-Islamic Activities of the Quadiani Group, Lahori Group and Ahmadis (Prohibition and Punishment) Ordinance (1984)]....


If we are to examine avatars from the prism of spiritual goals, Ram’s transformative role was to deliver to the world the ideal of Sattwa through action. Unlike the next avatar Krishna, Ram neither gave any spiritual discourse nor announced to the world his Avatarhood....


What do Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri—that is, the late leader of ISIS, and the late and current leaders of al-Qaeda—have in common? That they're among the world's most notorious Islamic terrorists? Yes, but there's something else, something more subtle that binds them: they all began their careers as members of the Muslim Brotherhood…


It was the ring-leader, Juhayman Al-Otaibi. Then he handed the microphone to another man, and what he had to say shocked the imam and all who heard it. The Mahdi, in the shape of Mohammed bin Abdullah Al-Qahtani, had arrived to wipe the world of its evils and was here among the armed men who had seized the mosque and were now locking inside 100,000 pilgrims and residents. The speaker rejected the authority of the Saudi royal family and the Ulema, the senior theologians of Islam, as illegitimate. Now everyone present, he said, must come forward to swear the oath of allegiance to the Mahdi....

قرآن کے الفاظ و کلمات کو پڑھنے پر اتنا زیادہ ثواب عطا کرنے کا وعدہ کیوں کیا گیا۔ ان ساری ترغیبات کی وجہ صرف اور صرف یہ ہے کہ ہم قرآن پڑھنے کی طرف راغب ہوجائیں اور قرآن پڑھتے پڑھتے اس سے ہدایت اخذ کرنے کی طرف متوجہ ہوجائیں۔ قرآن کے ذریعے ہم اپنے دین کو سیکھ لیں۔.......

We can still reunite some families and help others find closure by finally informing them of the fates of their long lost loved ones. To achieve this the international community needs to act swiftly and demand the relevant authorities make investigating the missing ISIL abductees a priority....


Murder and mayhem erupted in the very heart of Islam, perpetrated by a reactionary sect determined to overthrow the Saudi government and convinced that one among their number was the Mahdi, the redeemer of Islam whose appearance, according to the Hadith, heralds the Day of Judgment....


The madrasas are giving birth to a traditional, backward looking leadership while the secular education is shaping a different leadership. The division is complete and compartmentalized. Each section respects the invisible contract of not breeching into the territory of the other. Madrasa educated Ulema with sectarian outlook always express opinions about Islam even if sectarian and hold sway over the masses....
