April 6, 2017 marked the 100th anniversary of the United States’ reluctant plunge into the World War I.  Fearful of foreign entanglement, America stood watching for three years while on the other side of the Atlantic young men slaughtered each other. Finally, Congress gave the go-ahead and President Woodrow Wilson declared war against Germany on April 6, 1917. One is not sure if President Donald Trump had been conscious of the historic backdrop of his decision when he ordered the US missile attack on Syria last week, on April 6....

 

After gaining early momentum in the eastern parts of Afghanistan, Daesh's capabilities and territorial dominance began quickly to wane, both as a result of disproportionate focus by the Afghan and Coalition militaries, and because the group, unlike the Taliban, is not seen as an indigenous entity, and has consequently failed to consolidate local support. Moreover, Daesh's practice of accusing fellow Muslims of apostasy for deviating from its own violent interpretation of Islam does has found few takers in Afghanistan's tribal cultures...

 

During an era when Europe had only two universities, the Moors had seventeen. The founders of Oxford University were inspired to form the institution after visiting universities in Spain. According to the United Nations’ Education body, the oldest university operating in the world today, is the University of Al-Karaouine of Morocco founded during the height of the Moorish Empire in 859 A.D. by a Black woman named Fatima al-Fihri.....

 

"Islam itself is moderate in its nature and never promotes violence. Most Islamic scholars agree on this. And when you turn your back on a country representative of this 'middle way' you leave Europe vulnerable toward the influence of other extreme movements," he said. "Islamophobic sentiments, discrimination provoke radicalism, and radicalism feed the violence-prone far-right. Europe needs brave politicians to break that dangerous cycle,"...

 

The argument that triple divorce is Bid’at (repugnant to true Islamic law) but it cannot be legally done away with does not stand to reason. The strange formula of “bad in theology but good in law” associated with triple Talaq — to which the British Indian courts adhered in the distant past — has no legs to stand on in a modern 21st century society which is, or must be, governed by the principles of law, and not theology....

 

The root of the problem for the ulema lies in the stagnation in Islamic theological thought for over a millennium. Orthodox Islam had called for creative rethinking of issues as and when new situations emerged. This was called ijtihad. It was practised by jurists like Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Shafei, Imam Malik, Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal, etc. The gates of ijtihad, however, were closed after that. It was said that fresh thinking is no longer required. No one had the authority to close the gates of ijtihad, but ulema accepted that. This is what has caused the biggest problem. Indian ulema are perhaps the most conservative of all today. They would not even accept what their counterparts in Pakistan and Bangladesh have....

ہمارے ان قدیم مدرسوں کاہی کمال تھا کہ سول سروسیزکے لیے افرادتیارہوتے تھے ۔پورے برصغیرکی سول سروس مدارس کے ہی فارغین پرمنحصرتھی۔علاقے کاکوتوال،خزانہ کامحافظ ،عدالتوں کے قاضی،عمارتوں کے انجینئر،تحصیل ،ضلع ،ڈویژن کے سارے ذمے داراورحکومت کے سارے محکموں میں یہی فضلاے مدارس کام انجام دیتے تھے ۔لال قلعے،تاج محل ،قطب مینارسمیت برصغیرکی شاہ کار عمارتوں کوبنانے والے کوئی اورنہیں انہی مدرسوں کے فارغ التحصیل تھے لیکن 1781کے بعدتاریخ نے جوپلٹاکھایاتومسلمان جودنیاکی قیادت کے لیے آئے تھے صرف اپنے مذہب تک محدودکردیے گئے اور انگریزآسانی سے ساری چیزوں پرحاوی ہوگیا۔

 

उन्हें सोचना होगा कि केवल भाजपा को सत्ता में आने से रोकने की कोशिश को वे लोग चुनाव का कोई मुद्दा क्यों नहीं बना सके? अपनी सत्ता खोने वालों को खुद से ही सवाल करना चाहिए कि राष्ट्रीय उलेमा काउंसिल, उलेमा और मशाईख बोर्ड और शिया आलिमों ने उनके खिलाफ वोट डालने की अपील क्यों कीं? पराजित पार्टी ने मुसलमानों के कल्याण का ख्याल रखा या अपनी पार्टी के मुस्लिम नेताओं की झोलियाँ भरीं? क्या मुजफ्फरनगर दंगा पीड़ितों का पुनर्वास ऐसा कोई मुद्दा नहीं था जिसकी वजह से मुसलमान नाराज होकर दूसरी पार्टी को वोट दे देने पर मजबूर हुए?

The fundamental issue in the Jakarta election was religion. The emergence of hardline Islamic movements in recent years, whether through promulgation of shariah laws or realisation of more conservative attitudes constitutes a new phase of the relationship between state, democracy and Islam. Hardline political Islam has long had a following in Indonesia, bubbling beneath the surface.....

 

I say pantomime because surely no one believes the event was not set up to mask the true level of male control in Islam. If you doubt it, look at the laws on marriage, or succession, or rape in marriage among our key migrant source Islamic countries: Lebanon, Pakistan, Indonesia and Malaysia. A striking feature of the laws is that they distinguish the application of the law by religion. Religion first; the rule of law second....

Iqbal’s Wrong Turn
Pratap Bhanu Mehta

Many modern Hindu thinkers like M.S. Golwalkar suffered from Prophet Envy. They wanted Hinduism with a totem of unity. They settled on the cow, not as religious piety but as symbol of Hindu unity, and it is beginning to psychologically function in the same way. It is not an accident that there is chilling similarity in the way Mashal Khan was killed, and the way in which people are killed on suspicion of trafficking in cows....

Anatomy of a Lynching
Aatish Taseer

Almost 60 percent of India now lives in B.J.P.-controlled states; there is no opposition left to speak of. What voices of moderation and reason there used to be within the B.J.P. are either too cowed to speak or feel that it is politically inexpedient to do so....

Journey into the Light
Islamic Unity Society

Completing our first Umrah was a beautiful and joyous experience. Many group members over the course of the remaining nights performed the Umrah again on behalf of family and loved ones. Performing the rituals helped strengthen our willpower and discipline. It was a workout for the soul. Every Tawwaf (circumambulation) we completed around the Holy House was a step closer to achieving nearness to Allah (swt). We felt lighter. Cleansed.....

 

Extremism perpetrated and justified on ideological and religious basis has been a key issue of contemporary societies and states. In recent decades, Pakistanis have also been the victim of extremism particularly justified in the name of religion. Understanding and explaining the causes underlying radicalism, extremist movements, groups and individuals has been quite difficult....

 

.... Talaq al-Bidat emerged during the second century, when Omayyad rulers found that the laws “imposed by the Prophet on the facility of repudiation interfered with indulgence of their caprice and endeavoured to find an escape from the strictness of law.” Ahmad further writes, “It must be noted that it was not Islam, but Omayyad practices that gave validity to these divorces.”....

Clearly, this would be typically seen by the 'conspiracy theorists' among Muslims as an 'onslaught' of the 'Hindutva nationalists' on the madrasa education system. Nevertheless, unlike the previous governments which loudly announced the 'reform movements' in the UP madrasa, Yogi Adityanath's government is gearing up for a major overhaul in the age-old madrasa education system. Apart from the new vocational courses which are highly required in the educational curricula of the UP Madrasas, tech-based education programmes and professional skill development will also be included in the new educational curriculum....

अल्लाह के अंतिम पैगम्बर हज़रत मुहम्मद सल्लल्लाहु अलैहि वसल्लम हिदायत का पैकर बनकर इस संसार में पधारे l उन्होनें सम्पूर्ण संसार को ज्ञान के प्रकाश से जगमगाया l यही कारण है कि पवित्र कुरआन में अल्लाह पाक ने फरमाया कि शिक्षित (अहले इल्म) और अशिक्षित (जाहिल) कभी बराबर हो ही नहीं सकते l शिक्षा अर्थात इल्म ही सभी तरक्की और सफलता का माद्ध्यम है l या इस प्रकार कह सकते हैं कि दुनिया की कयादत (नेतृत्व) के लिये इल्म सबसे आवश्यक है l

 

حنفی ،اہل حدیث اور شیعی تینوں مسلکوں کے برخلاف میرا نقطہ نظر یہ ہے کہ قرآنی ہدایت کے علیٰ الرغم دی گئی طلاق خواہ ایک ہو یا زیادہ دو واقع نہیں ہوگی ۔ ایک مجلس کی تین طلاق کے بارے میں قارئین نے دیکھا کہ ائمہ کرام کی رائیں ایک دوسرے سے مختلف اور متضاد ہیں ۔ اس لیے دونوں رائیں عین شریعت قرار نہیں دی جاسکتی ۔ ورنہ لازم آئیگا کہ خدا کی کتاب اور اس کی شریعت میں تضاد بیانی پائی جاتی ہے۔ جو بہت بڑا نقص اور عیب ہے ۔ البتہ دونوں متضاد رائے رکھنے اور ماننے والے یعنی مقلداور غیر مقلد سبھی قسم کے علماء کا اس بات پر اتفاق ہے کہ ۔۔۔شوہر کومکمل اختیار ہے کہ وہ جب چاہے یکطرفہ طور پر لفظ طلاق بول کر نکاح کوختم کرسکتا ہے۔ اس معاملہ میں مسلم معاشرہ یا عدالت کودخل دینے کا کوئی حق نہیں ہے۔ مگرکوئی عورت نکاح کو ختم یا فسخ کرناچاہے تو اسے عدالت سے رجوع کرناپڑے گا ۔کیا اسے شرعی اور انصاف پر مبنی قانون قرار دیا جاسکتا ہے؟
