हमारे इन प्राचीन मदरसों का ही कमाल था कि सिविल सर्वीसेज़ के लिए अफ़राद तयार होते थे l पुरे उपमहाद्वीप की सिविल सेवा मदरसों के ही स्नातक पर ही निर्भर थी l क्षेत्र का कोतवाल, खजाने के रक्षक, अदालतों के न्यायाधीश, इमारतों के इंजीनियर, तहसील,जिला,विभाग के सारे जिम्मे दार और सरकार के सारे विभागों में यही मदरसों के स्नातक काम करते थे l लाल किले,ताजमहल, क़ुतुब मीनार समेत उपमाद्वीप की शाह कार इमारतों को बनाने वाले कोई और नहीं इन्हीं मदरसों के स्नातक थे लेकिन 1781के बाद इतिहास ने जो पलटा खाया तो मुसलमान जो संसार के नेतृत्व करने के लिए आए थे केवल अपने धर्म तक सीमित कर दिए गए और अंग्रेज़ आसानी से सारी चीजों पर हावी हो गया।


ऐसे विचारों और मोअतकेदात पर भी आलिमों की सहमति है कि मक्का में नाज़िल होने वाली शांतिपूर्ण और कसिरीयत पसन्द प्रारंभिक आयात को बाद में मदीना में नाज़िल होने वाली जंगो जेदाल पर आधारित आक्रामक आयतों ने रद्द कर दिया। और उन्हीं उलेमा की शिक्षाओं का परिणाम है कि मुसलमानों को भी अब यकीन हो चला है कि आम सहमति (इज्माअ)का महत्व इस्लाम में कुरआन से भी अधिक है और शांति और तक्सरियत पसंदी, अन्य धर्मों के अनुयायियों के साथ सहअस्तित्व, कठिन परिस्थितियों में धैर्य और दृढ़ता,मामूली बहानों पर युद्ध में जल्दी न करने आदि जैसे कुरानी आदेश एक हजार साल से भी पहले रद्द किए जा चुके हैं। उलेमा गैर मुस्लिम जनता के सामने तक़ैय्या प्रसार के तौर पर इन आयतों का हवाला देते हैं,लेकिन मुसलमानों को यह पता होगा कि ये आयतें रद्द हो चुकी हैं और केवल धोखा देने की रणनीति के तहत इन का हवाला पेश किया जाता है।

For all those who have become awake and conscious or otherwise put; have escaped the western media pit of lies and brainwashing, the six year long resistance of the Syrian people in the face of the US Deep State and its terrorist proxy troops ISIS, Al Qaeda et al has been a deeply tragic but historically heroic inspiration to us all....


I wonder, Mr Netanyahu, what kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? To reap the real fruits of the Six Day War is to make peace. Nothing short of peace will make the Six Day War a triumph, because the war is continuing. You, more than any other human living in Israel, will be responsible and accountable to the next generation who will be asking, why? Why must we live in a prison of our own creation when the state of Israel was created to liberate us?...


“Before being killed, she begged the men who had dragged her out of the house not to slit her throat, which they would usually do, but shoot her instead. They fulfilled her last wish and shot her in the head. Her corpse was hung from the lamp-post like those of other such victims in the main square of the chief city of the Swat Valley, where such executions were regularly being carried on.”....


Either tacitly or explicitly, Saudi Arabia and Israel have cooperated enough times to make any guise of hostility pointlessly transparent. The only surprise is how Saudi Arabia has been able to feign its concern for Palestinians in the midst of the partnership with their oppressors, while also earning the respect of staunchly anti-Israeli states like Pakistan....


Once again defying popular perceptions, it was during the tenure of Maharaja Ranjit Singh that shrine began to grow. A library was built here, the first of its kind, with a vast collection of handwritten copies of the Quran. The religious texts were donated by Maharani Jind Kaur, Ranjit Siingh’s youngest wife who, after his death, briefly served as her young son Maharaja Duleep Singh’s Regent....

One of the evils in modern societies is racism, believing that one is born superior and hatred for those who belong to different faiths, culture and creeds. This arrogance comes from the Devil and pushes one away from being touched by the Divine Mercy. The Quran clearly says: “I will divert My signs from those who show arrogance.” It denounces such false claims of superiority, proclaiming that the only rank that matters is one’s relationship with God....


Just a few days ago a man in a van yelling he wanted to “kill all Muslims” drove into a group of worshippers outside a mosque in London. This attack followed several violent acts of terror including those in Manchester and an earlier one in London. Islamophobia has been growing steadily and public figures like Nigel Farage have fed into it calling Muslims  “a fifth column living within our country, who hate us and want to kill us.”...


In the Qur’ān, Muslims are reminded that “[t]here shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion [of Islam]” (2:256). Classical commentators on the Qur’ān, such as the famous Ismā‘īl ibn Kathīr (d. 1373), and more recent ones such as Sayyid Qutb (d. 1966) and Mawdūdī (d. 1979) are in agreement that this passage forbids any form of coercing non-Muslims into embracing Islam. [1] However, many (if not most) of the people who express curiosity about whether Islam spread “by the sword” are interested in whether this is a historical reality....

इस बात से अक्सर लोग परिचित हैं कि ऐसे मदरसों की एक बहुत बड़ी संख्या है जो किसी भी मदरसा बोर्ड से जुड़ा न होने की वजह से पूरी तरह से असंगठित और गैर विनियमित हैं। और इस तरह के मदरसों के मालिक अपने विकल्प का अक्सर उन अर्थों में दुरुपयोग करते हैं कि वे पाठ्यक्रम और शिक्षा प्रणाली के मामले में मदरसा बोर्ड के दायरे से बाहर हैं। अधिकांश उन मदरसों में कि जिन्हें स्वतंत्र मदरसा कहा जाता है, मुख्य रूप से दीनीयात की शिक्षा दी जाती है जो मुख्य रूप से सदियों पुरानी पुस्तकों का एक संग्रह है। यहां तक कि उनके धार्मिक लेख में भी उन बहस कोई जगह नहीं दी जाती है, जिनका संबंध रोजमर्रा की समस्याओं से है। और इस प्रकार की शिक्षा प्रणाली का उद्देश्य लेख के आवश्यकताओं और उसकी नज़ाकतों पर विचार किए बिना उन्हें केवल मौखिक रूप से रट कर याद कर लेना है।


ولا ريب فيه أن جرائم يرتكبها تنظيم داعش– مثل ذبح و قتل الأبرياء بمن فيهم المسلمين وغير المسلمين و قصف الأماكن العامة وشن الهجمات الانتحارية أو تشويه أجساد القتلى كلها أعمال معادية للتعاليم الإسلامية. لم نجد لهذه الأفعال أي موافقة من قبل الأئمة والفقهاء والعلماء الكرام ولا من الأغلبية الساحقة من المسلمين.


ذاکر نائک صاحب کی تبلیغ سے کسی کو تکلیف نہیں ہے، پریشانی اس سے ہے کہ وہ تبلیغ کس چیز کی کر رہے ہیں؟ ان کی دعوت کا انحصار جس یک سطری اصول پر ہے وہ یہ ہے کہ میرا مذہب اور میرا مسلک ہی صحیح ہے باقی سب کے سب گمراہ ہیں۔ یوں تو ہر ایک کو اپنا راستہ، اپنا موقف، اپنا مسلک اور اپنا دین صحیح ہی لگتا ہے لیکن جب میں یہ کہنا شروع کر دیتا ہوں کہ میرے علاوہ باقی سب غلط ہیں اور ان کا بیڑہ اسی صورت میں پار ہو سکتا ہے جب وہ میری راہ پر آ جائیں۔ یہ باتیں دل آزاری کا سبب بنتی ہیں۔ یہی فکر زیادہ آگے بڑھے تو امام بارگاہوں اور خانقاہوں میں دھماکوں، مہاتما بدھ کی مورتوں کے انہدام اور لال مسجد کی شکل میں نتائج سامنے آتے ہیں۔

While in prison, the regime's agents harassed and tortured my brother in front of my eyes. They used to beat him, saying "no one knows about you outside of these walls." The loudmouth agents would add while still beating him: "No one is paying attention to what is happening to you here, and everyone will forget about you because you don't matter. Those words still echo in my brain: "No one knows about you outside of these walls..."..


A thousand years ago, as much of Europe languished in the Dark Ages; the Iberian Peninsula was a cultural oasis, the brightest beacon of civilisation. Under the Umayyad dynasty, the caliphate of Al-Andalus stretched from Lisbon to Zaragoza, and centred on the Andalusian cities of Córdoba, Granada and Seville. From the 8th Century, the caliphate oversaw a period of extraordinary cross-cultural creativity known as La Convivencia (the Coexistence)....


The Gaza story is taking a sinister twist. The Israeli siege has been imposed on the Gaza Strip for over ten years. The 2 million people living in the small coastal enclave have suffered not only a lack of food and medicine, but also several deadly wars and almost complete Arab and international neglect....


Radical Islamists are promoting a global world view which is destabilising us. Look at all the civil wars which radical Muslims have started. Bangladesh is well in the frame to become a serious democracy. There are established madrasas in Dhaka where a lot of money is coming from Saudi Arabia and Gulf countries. These seminaries produce people who hack people to death simply because they don’t agree with them....

Following the introduction of the Qisas and Diyat law the crimes affecting human body are no longer considered offences against the society or state, but are now considered offences against an individual. Thus, if these individuals so decide, offenders can walk free even after committing heinous crimes like murder. The legal heirs of a deceased have the right to make a compromise with the offender under section 309 and 310...
