    Islamic Society

    The post Ramazan activities of most Muslims are a testimony of this fact. The mosques once again crave for the big congregations, but millions of gallons of water are saved in the process, as the seasonal Muslims wait for next Ramazan to attend mosques for the daily five prayers.  What are the reasons for the drastic decline and disdain towards ‘piety’ and ‘rituals’ once the Shawwal moon has been sighted?...

    Islam and Pluralism

    By organizing such events and ceremonies, Education for Peace, a New Agr Islam Foundation initiative, aims at creating the atmosphere of peace and harmony in the country and eliminating the creeping bias, hatred and hostile attitude, particularly from the young and impressionable minds, towards people of other religious communities. Though it is not an easy- job, NAI Foundation is actively engaged in its struggle of spreading Islam’s message of peace and inclusiveness.


    The Christmas Day Ceremony was one such event, but, Mr. Sultan Shahin, Editor New Age Islam said that similar events on the anniversaries of other previous prophets of Islam are also being planned. He also intends to bring together spiritual leaders from other Ahl-e-Kitab communities on the next birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad (saw).


    We must present Islam as an inclusivist religion, Mr Shahin pointed out, briefing the New Age Islam staff and close supporters. Of course, no religion teaches hatred of the other or exclusivism and supremacism, but also no other religion other than Islam, to the best of my knowledge, - I will be happy to be corrected - ,  specifically asks its followers so clearly, so repeatedly, and so strongly to be inclusive, to treat all the tens of thousands of prophets of Islam who came to all parts of the world with equal respect, and says that they all enjoy the same stature as Prophrt Mohammad (saw). Like the concept of complete human equality before One God, inclusivism should be our USP.

    The downfall of Saudi Arabia as a US ally is evidenced by the sudden re-opening of long-dormant 9/11 investigations and lawsuits focusing on – who else – Bandar Bin Sultan, sometimes known as “Bandar Bush” due to his position as an honorary member of the Bush (crime) family. In Washington, D.C., Reps. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) are sending chills up Bandar's spine by calling for the declassification of the 2002 “Joint Inquiry Into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001.”….

     
    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Jihad is one of the pillars of Islam that elucidates Muslims’ obligation towards the religion whereas terrorism takes into account ferocious tactics employed by an individual or a group to impart feelings of scare and terror amongst wide-ranging audience. Nowadays, the notion of terrorism has been associated with Jihad by extremists, who attempt to corroborate their activities with Jihad. Abysmal acts orchestrated by terrorists and their misinterpretation of Islamic teachings have distorted the factual image of Islam, resultantly making it imperative to discuss the discrimination between Jihad and terrorism…..

    Islamic Ideology

    There has also existed historically a long tradition of acceptance diversity of culture and faith in Islamic civilisation, a fact that has to be remembered by those wishing to jettison this value in favour of insularity and narrow-mindedness. The question nowadays for the Muslim community in the West is how we want this very same culture of freedom and choice that we enjoy as minorities reflected in Muslim-majority societies....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    One of these historical examples was the Prophet Mohammed, who is seen by the jihadists as a model for their military campaigns. After Mohammed left Mecca and established the first Islamic polity in Medina, his forces began to conduct asymmetrical military operations against their stronger Meccan foes, attacking their commercial caravans and conducting hit-and-run attacks until they were able to amass the power necessary to conquer Mecca and expand the Islamic state to include a large section of the Arabian Peninsula…..

    इस्लाम की मूल धार्मिक पुस्तक यानी पवित्र कुरआन जो हज़रत मुहम्मद सल्लल्लाहु अलैहि वसल्लम पर नाज़िल हुई थी, उसमें आश्चर्यजनक रूप से हज़रत ईसा (यीशु) का उल्लेख 25 बार आया है, जबकि खुद हज़रत मुहम्मद सल्लल्लाहु अलैहि वसल्लम का उल्लेख इतनी बार स्पष्ट रूप में नहीं आया।

    इस्लाम से पहले अनपढ़ समाजों में औरतें हर प्रकार के अधिकारों से वंचित थीं। जहां महिलाएं जीवन के अधिकार से वंचित हो, वहाँ पढ़ने लिखने के अधिकार का तो सवाल ही पैदा नहीं होता। मगर इस्लाम ने जहां महिलाओं को उच्च स्थान दिया है उस पर एक एहसान ये भी किया है कि उसे शिक्षा और प्रशिक्षण में मर्दों के बराबर ही अधिकार दिये हैं। शरीयते इस्लामी ने मर्दों और औरतों दोनो को सम्बोधित किया है, धार्मिक आदेशों का पालन दोनों पर वाजिब है और क़यामत के दिन मर्दो की तरह औरतें भी खुदा के सामने जवाबदेह हैं इसलिए औरतों के लिए भी ज्ञान प्राप्त करना जो उनको मुख्य धार्मिक मामलों की शिक्षा दे और इस्लामी आदेशों के अनुसार जीवन जीने का ढंग सिखाए वो उनके लिए फ़र्ज़े ऐन करार दिये गये हैं। फ़र्ज़े ऐन का मतलब है कि इसे सीखना ज़रूरी है और अगर औरत या मर्द इसमें कोताही करे तो वो मुजरिम है।

    Islam versus Inherited Culture-Based Religiosity
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

    Like other people, the present-day Muslims’ religiosity is, by and large, an inherited one. But this kind of religiosity is not enough. Muslims must rediscover their religion by re-studying the Quran and Sunna. Their faith commitment must be a conscious decision based on discovery of the truth of Islam, and not simply because they have inherited their religion from their forefathers. This principle is given in the Quran (49:14) in these words: “The Arabs of the desert say, ‘We have believed.’ Say to them, ‘You have not believed yet; say rather, “We have submitted,” for faith has not yet entered into your hearts’”....

    Do Not Repeat the Mistakes of 1989 in Allowing the Return of Taliban, New Age Islam Editor Sultan Shahin Asks International Community at UNHRC in Geneva

    Mr. President,

    The US is withdrawing from Afghanistan as well as from Iraq and Syria. Inspired by the Taliban declaration of victory, a radicalised terrorist in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, backed by a Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist organisation, attacked an Indian military convoy, killing 40 soldiers. Similar suicide attack killed 27 elite revolutionary guards in Sistan, Iran. Emboldened Jihadists will surely carry out more such attacks in future. The gloating in Islamist circles for having “defeated” both the superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, has reached its peak.

    Mr. President,

    Still fresh in our minds is what happened when the international community abandoned Afghanistan in 1989. Taliban ruled and Al-Qaeda got a safe haven. A series of atrocities including 9/11 and horrors of Islamic State followed.

     In this backdrop, the complacency of the world community in allowing Taliban to govern Afghanistan is inexplicable. Jihadist strength does not come from their soldiers and territories. It comes from an ideology and ideologies cannot be defeated militarily.

    Mr. President,

    The Jihadist ideology is based on very solid foundations in Islamic history, scriptures and theology. Moderate Muslims have not yet succeeded in evolving a satisfactory alternative theology of peace and pluralism to challenge the current theology of violence and exclusion. Even when such a theology evolves, it will take time and effort for it to be established. Mainstream Muslims should be allowed the time and space to work out and propagate a counternarrative. I would, therefore, urge the international community not to repeat the mistakes of 1989 and invite further disasters....
