तीन तलाक पर सुप्रीम कोर्ट में बहस शुरू हो चुकी है और जब फैसला सुनाया जाएगा तो भारत के हर नागरिक को यह मानना होगा। क्या ही अच्छा होता कि हम कह देते कि जो कानून 26मुस्लिम देशों में प्रचलित है हम भी उसी पर चलेंगे। ऐसा करके हम कानूनी चर्चा रुकवा सकते थे और अपने गैर मुस्लिम भाइयों के सामने शर्मिंदगी से बच सकते थे। न्यायिक चर्चा से गैर मुसलमानों को यह कहने का मौका मिल गया कि कुछ मुसलमान कुरआन पढ़ने के बावजूद उसे समझ नहीं पाए।


’’ مسلم لاء کچھ بنیاد میں قرآن ، حدیث ،اجماع اور اجتہاد نماز کے متعلق قرآن اور حدیث دونوں کاسہارا لینا پڑتاہے تب یہ موضوع صاف ہوتا ہے۔ جہاں تک قانونی نقطہ نظر کا سوال ہے اس موضوع پر 1937میں محمد احمد کاظمی ممبر سینٹرل اسمبلی کی کوشش کے Application Act Muslim Lawپاس ہوا جس میں میراث اور طلاق دونوں کا تذکرہ ہے لیکن اس کی تفصیل سے گریز کیا گیا ہے غالباً انہیں مسلکی اختلافات کی وجہ سے ۔ یہ قانونی درجہ ہوگیا او رآئین ہند میں دفعات 25/26وغیرہ میں تحفظ فراہم کیا گیا ہے۔


بعض الحقائق أو العادات العالمية حول الإسلام هي فوق النقاش ولا يمكن رفضها من قبل القانون، ولا تحتاج إلى توثيق من قبل ما يسمى رجال الدين عما إذا كانت عناصر ضرورية أو غير ضرورية من الإيمان. القرآن يبشر أن هناك إله واحد. المسلمون يقرأون من القرآن في صلواتهم اليومية. ويطلب من المسلمين القيام بالوضوء قبل بدء الصلاة. القرآن قد حرم لحم الخنازير كغذاء. وألغى القرآن عادة دفن البنات وهن أحياء. وقد ألغى القرآن الطلاق الفوري وقدم إطارا زمنيا للطلاق. وألغى القرآن علاقة المحارم بين العلاقات الوثيقة المحددة بوضوح.

CNN's Marc Randazza, after mentioning video footage showing Erdogan speaking to the black-suited agents before they rushed the protesters, said, "It was brutal -- with the agents punching protesters and kicking them while they were on the ground.... The word outrage," he wrote, "does not come close to describing this incident." ....


Today, Joplin’s mosque is housed in a plain building surrounded by a black gate and a fluttering American flag. One afternoon last month, kids were running around there, getting ready for an Arabic lesson. On the wall, posters explained the similarities between Islam, Christianity and Judaism....


This is a Kafkaesque moment. Time flows fast without giving one the mental space and energy to reflect and understand. Maybe we had lost many chances in the past for reflection and understanding before we reached this moment. This is perhaps a form of divine justice for all the past and present injustices committed by the republic against all the undesired and unwanted minds and bodies. Who knows? The history of the Turkish Republic remains to be one of constant and systematic violence. ...


A white man riding on that train on Friday began screaming anti-Muslim insults at a black 16-year-old girl and her 17-year-old Muslim friend wearing a Hijab. One can imagine people pretending not to hear and staring fiercely down at their phones; instead, three brave passengers stepped forward to protect the girls....


A similar synthetic debate shrouds the role of Islam. Many point to the religion as the ideological evil involved. Yet many of these young Muslims attracted to Daesh, Al-Qaeda and such groups have little to no understanding of the religion. Some who joined Daesh bought “Islam for Dummies.”...


The violence that shrouded Gaddafi’s death footage summarizes another face of many rebels. The world failed to see beyond the violent aggression of that scene to praise the doing of Libyan militant youngsters, among of which was Salman Abedi. No one imagined that one of these youngsters was opting to become the architect of our girls’ fate, signing up for a future of terror where he came so close to our streets, and kill us all.....

In the age of Isis, we should remember Nasr Abu Zeid. He was a hero of his time, who would, had he lived – now that the Salafist cult has been let loose in the Europe of his exile as well as the Egypt that was his home – have long ago been murdered. Before I telephoned him for the first time in Cairo, I wondered if he’d be still alive to talk to me by the time I reached his home.....

Why not Consider Inferior Minds
Dr Muhammad Maroof Shah

Major figures in Islamic intellectual tradition are distinguished by their comprehensive review of existing state of art affairs, ability to invoke the First Principles, keen insight on zeitgeist of their age and great moral-spiritual credentials. They are ultimately valued not in themselves but in leading us or connecting us to the Fountainhead of Ilm/gnosis. Popular writers/preachers may often suffer from certain ideological prejudices and don’t command requisite qualifications to make accessible the best of the legacy of Elders. It is sin against intelligence to debate and regurgitate what is cheaply or popularly available. Likes of Ibn Sina, Mulla Sadra, Anwar Shah, Heidegger, Whitehead are not/can’t be popular....


Paradoxically, instead of promoting an intelligent criticism of religion, new atheism ends up generating hordes of theologically and spiritually alienated people who are even more likely to be recruited by cults and religions, and who will thereafter vehemently deny that they are so much as a little bit influenced by religion. They simultaneously refuse to study religion, whilst denying that they may be under the influence of underlying religious ideas. But how can you know, if you don’t even care to study how religion truly works?...

इस्लाम में तलाक दो तरह से होती है:एक वे जो पत्नी द्वारा शुरू की जाती है जिसे 'खुला'कहते हैं और दूसरी स्थिति में पति द्वारा दी जाती है। तीन तलाक पति द्वारा दी जाने वाली तलाक का एक रूप है। अगर पति तलाक देता है तो उसे अपनी पत्नी का मेहर अदा करना पड़ता है,जो अनिवार्य अदाएगी है जिसे निकाह के समय दूल्हे की ओर से दुल्हन को अदा किया जता है या बाद में अदा करने का वादा किया जाता है। मेहर की निर्दिष्ट निकाह के दौरान हस्ताक्षर करने वाले हर निकाहनामें में की जाती है। अगर पत्नी खुला चाहे तो उसे अपने महेर के अधिकार से दस्तबरदार हो जाना पड़ता है, क्योंकि निकाह का यह रद्द खुद उसके द्वारा शुरू किया जता है।


یورپ میں ہونے والے حملوں پر کسی حد تک ’’اطمینان‘‘ کا اظہار کرنے والے عناصر یہ دلیل بھی سامنے لاتے ہیں کہ مغرب خود اپنی بیجی ہوئی فصل کاٹ رہا ہے۔ اس نے خود ہی مختلف مسلمان ملکوں میں جنگوں کا آغاز کرکے اس نفرت کو کاشت کیا تھا جو اب مغرب کو بھی اپنی لپیٹ میں لے رہی ہے۔ یہ اعتراض کرنے والے اس عمل میں اپنے ملک کے حکمران ، بااثر طبقات ، اشرافیہ اور مذہبی و سیاسی رہنماؤں کے کردار کو یکسر فراموش کر دیتے ہیں۔ اس کے علاوہ اس بات کو بہرحال نظر انداز نہیں کیا جا سکتا کہ مسلمانوں کے مختلف گروہوں نے کسی نہ کسی بہانے سے دنیا بھر میں تباہی پھیلانے اور انسانوں کو ہلاک کرنے کا آغاز کیا ہے۔

Journalists in Afghanistan are often under pressure from different sides such as the Taliban, Islamic State, warlords and the state. When I asked Ms. Raisada and Ms. Kohistani about the challenges, both noted that women journalists are paid much less than their male counterparts. “For both women and men reporters, a critical challenge is difficulty in accessing information from the provinces with Taliban presence,” added Ms. Raisada....


Even when they arrive in the region to chat to their “moderate” friends, the Sunni Muslim head-choppers, dictators and torturers who are now enlisting a mad American President in their alliance against Shia Muslims, the Western visitors do no more than mouth their propaganda and agree with Sunni Gulf plans to annihilate Iran...


The bombing will also intensify the row within the administration of Donald Trump over whether to increase America’s military presence in Afghanistan. Mr Trump’s national-security team has endorsed a plan to deploy up to 5,000 extra troops. Others in the White House remain opposed to further entangling America in a war on which it already spends $3bn a month. ..


Islam is a religion of peace, love, moderation and justice. Islam teaches coexistence and tolerance among various ethnic, social and sectarian entities. Glancing at the history, one finds that despite presence of Islamic civilizations in different regions such as Africa, Middle East, Central Asia, etc the Islamic societies that emerged in cosmopolitan cities such as Cairo, Baghdad, Istanbul, Damascus, Jerusalem, etc have produced perfect examples of endogenous and inclusive cultures embedded in diverse and complex environments under different political establishments....


The fatwa, whose contents are though not new to the scholars of the field, has nine points which can be summarized as follows: a) there is no room for religious extremism and terrorism in the name of Islam, b) those who commit (suicide) terrorism are rebels, c) Fasad-fil-Ard (persecution) is un-Islamic and the Islamic state (of Pakistan) has the right to curb it with military means, d) only the Islamic state (of Pakistan) has the constitutional prerogative to enact Islamic injunctions, and not any (armed) individual or group....


They often conflate Islam with Muslims. I repeatedly stress that Islam and Muslims are two very different things. The foremost source of knowledge about Islam is the Quran. The next source is the Hadith, from which we learn about aspects of the Prophet’s life. Now, according to my study, people generally refer to some battles that the Prophet fought, and on that basis say that Islam is a religion of war, of violence. …


There are two ways to live our religions. We can live them out of their historical particularities, which divide us from each other, or we can live them out of their focus on God, which unites us. There is no doubt which of these God prefers. God commands us not to divide over our religions (Quran 42:13). The religions jointly express in different cultural languages a single eternal truth: our lives founder unless they focus on God....
