Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam


  • Ahmad AL-Hakeem, B.A Civil Engineering, Qassim University comments,

    “True Sharia law is never practices in any Muslim country despite what they might say .. Muslims countries are of three types:

    “Countries ruled by western-backed military dictators who struggle against Islam in general since it goes against them.

    “Monarchies that claim to follow it but really don’t .. they might restrict it to one class of people or allow what’s not allowable (like financial interest) by giving it some bullshit name.

    “democracies like Malasia and Turkey where they’re slowly regaining a lot of their freedom back (turkey un particular) and implementing aspects of Sharia back into the government.

    “Sharia is both very detailed and broad in subjects. So, on personal and community level it’s practiced and held by the people themselves, not governments. On the government level, somethings like divorce or inheritance laws generally follow Islamic ruling.”

  • Muslim ulema still demand rajam stoning of adulterers though there is no verse in the Quran to that effect. Even if such a verse existed in the Quran it has been abrogated. So for that they have discovered a wahi-e-Khafi allegedly narrated by the prophet pbuh according to which even if the Quran tells Muslims to only flog adulterers, they insist that the hadith which is weak should be given precedence over the statement of the Quran. And ulema of the ISIS did impose stoning, flogging and amputation in their so called khilafat for two years because they do not understand the meaning of urf and maruf in the Quran. However, development the world may make they will insist on adopting the path of the people living in the sixth and seventh century ignoring the teaching of the Quran that Muslims should make advancement according to the time.

  • @Praveen Gutta , Mohammad Ashraf Mr Gutta not secular but say manuvadi laws. unde r income tac you get benefit of hindu undivided family By Iqbal Husain - 10/12/2016 9:38:21 AM

  • @Mohammad Ashraf  Yes, apply Sharia criminal laws for Muslims, rest of us will follow Secular laws for us. :) By Praveen Gutta - 10/12/2016 9:35:41 AM

  • I endorse your suggestion for implementation asap and I assure you that the glaring problems like raping a daughter in front of a helpless father will not recur. By Mohammad Ashraf - 10/12/2016 9:34:17 AM

  • New Age Islam, Pls enlighten us about sharia. What is Sharia? By Mohd Abu Rayhan - 10/12/2016 9:33:26 AM

  • No Muslim in his senses will ever support ISIS. Indian Muslims scholars have already condemned its unIslamic acts. Moreover, Muslims know very well that this outfit has been created by the US in order to defame Islam and distort its teachings. There are many fake videos made by vested interests showing the cruelty of ISIS. But it cannot be denied that they are masters in perpetrating cruelty and Muslims know why. It should also be noted that this outfit has killed more Muslims than others. It gets orders from Tel Aviv. By Serajuddin Khurram - 10/12/2016 9:30:09 AM

  • @Iqbal have you read those books by Dr.B.R Ambedkar or by Periyar or by poula richman or by Doniger......and what to say about these books....in your last comment you have asked about reservation....he have made reservation only for low level casts and minorities.....do you think Muslims are low level cast or is minor now....the answer is "NO".....i intentionally avoided your point.....which point....of debating with zakir naik....hmmm first of all now his telecast are not acceptable and next he is not present in India....and last but not the least he have never accepted any debate challenge form anyone....and I m not wasting my time here....i m giving information about true Islam not that "filtered Islam" which you followers know....you answer me "Do you support ISIS?" Please briefly explain me your answer and be in the topic related to "religion".....XOXOXO By Subhashish Rock - 10/12/2016 9:26:02 AM

  • @Subhashish Rock be specific . tell me about rejoinders / rebuttals written till date for these books "Riddles of Hinduism" by Dr Ambedkar and his book "annihilation of caste" , "True ramayana' by Periyar , "many ramayana's " by poula Richman , "many books of wendy Doniger like "alternativae history hindyuism" , "shiva lingam ---- ..." etc etc. you intionally avoided my points on zakir. why not going and confornting zakir saheb in OPEN FORUM debates instead of wasting your time of facebook By Iqbal Husain - 10/12/2016 9:23:19 AM

  • Yes we can find multiple books out in market but we can also find books like Quran,hadiths out there and people like me are referring from Quran and hadiths.....according to Vedas cast system is not by birth but by profession....same cast system is shown in China's flag....4stars and 1 star shows communism and sati system....Hinduism was included by some evil Brahmins in the 10th century....but Hinduism is much more greater than just a cast system.....and Late Dr.B.R Ambedkar made sure reservation for only Hindus is lol😁😁😂😂.....he was more brilliant than more peoples know him to be.....no such reservations can be granted to Muslims because you all cant say that Muslims are SC and ST or OBC.....if you can then reservations are for you also😉 By Subhashish Rock - 10/12/2016 9:19:13 AM

  • Hmmm for question (2).....yes in market multiple books are there...but book like Quran and hadiths are also there and people like me are not referring from other books but only from Quran and hadiths..... By Subhashish Rock - 10/12/2016 9:18:50 AM

  •  @Iqbal Husain And for your first question my answer is "YES"...yes we should preach our religion....but the thing is when someone's religion is producing back to back something which is not acceptable by humans then how can you think of preaching that religion and people to accept that.....conversation by self will is different and force conversation is different....like I m preaching my religion not Hinduism but "agonistic".....i want people to understand that in past few people made these rules to control humans from crossing their limits.....from hurting nature else there will be no difference left between humans and animals. By Subhashish Rock - 10/12/2016 9:18:26 AM

  • @Krishna Kumar Saboo, let me remove your misunderstandings about Islam. Islam does not allow killing of those who do not follow it. If anyone claiming to be Muslim does so, he violates and disobeys the holy Quran and will be punished in the hereafter also. Says the holy Quran: "No compulsion in matters of faith"(2:256). The holy book also says: "....Whosoever kills an innocent human being, it shall be as if he has killed all mankind, and whosoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he has saved all of mankind"(5:32). By Serajuddin Khurram - 10/12/2016 9:13:36 AM

  • The issue here  is triple talaq, on which Privy Council had famously put the lid by pronouncing that triple talaq may be bad in theology but is good in law (being strongly customary in India). The fact however is that there is urgent need to reform statutorily,  the talaq  laws for the Muslims in India. One question I had raised which nobody took up to clarify. The issue requires deeper study. By Manzurul haque - 10/8/2016 1:07:15 PM

  • Awesome.hats off to your stand for the truth. By Rubina Tabassum - 10/8/2016 5:40:21 AM

  • yes faraz you are absolutely right..Apply the laws of shariat for bad deeds too.why should they apply only for triple talaq.. people agree that it is sinful and invalid ...why do they beat about the bush and push a man for quick exit and an unreasonable bigamy at the cost of others rights..You have rightly pointed out the deficiency.Today our women stand for their rights and the society should stand up to protect them. By Rubina Tabassum - 10/8/2016 5:33:03 AM

  • Faraz Kazmi...I appreciate your guts....the root cause of disharmony among Indians is differential treatment by law based on religion. But we call our self a Secular country. Religion is personal matter it should not be brought in politics, sadly our country has failed in this regard.

    By Amit Lingras - 10/8/2016 5:30:27 AM

  • Why in India Sharia should be practiced where Great Dr Ambedkar only asked to have common civil code....I think those who want sharia law are not willing to accept common law for all no matter what the religion is ....So they all are against Dr Ambedkar thought.....Anybody wants sharia or fantasy law can go and implement elsewhere and stay there out of India.....Neruian thought has messed and confused the vision of Bharat ....where world is moving towards the develop and some evils are wanting to impose Sharia ( own law ) in multi religious country like India.... By Prafull Goriwale - 10/8/2016 5:28:00 AM

  • Hats off to Faraz... Wish everyone had the same ability to be able to differentiate between right and wrong without being blinded by ones religion. Mr Mahmood, i feel pity for you at the same time. You seem to have lived your life under the influence of radicalism and find it hard to come out of it...but sadly for you your days of radicalism seem to be over soon with the new youth brigade of the likes of Farazs taking over.. By Neeraj Gururani - 10/8/2016 5:26:11 AM

  • who is preventing the govt..??
    We Muslims support Criminal part of Sharia for Muslims is the govt and the paid Author have any concrete plan to implement it...??? if sharia for criminal aspect is allowed we will have the same kaafirs crying human rights abuse......!!!!

  • yes punish the adultrous muslims according to sharia laws then...why do the male patriachial men ise triple talaq a quick exist and pave a way fr a quick shaadi under cover.have they ever thought of the woman who is rendered helpless and without a home.show these people what law of the land is.woman are no longer uneducated.They can understan quran and interpret it better . By Rubina Tabassum - 10/8/2016 5:19:55 AM

  • Faraz Kazmi bhai u'r words are only assuring that Indian muslims are non radical while upholding the real values and morals of a peaceful islam....but the thing is even 1 bad fish can pollute the whole pond... By Saswat Biswal - 10/8/2016 5:16:09 AM

  • @ Faraz Kazmi: You are a shameless person. No customary laws can be enforced by the state judiciary unless they are enacted by the sovereign parliament. Why should the Indian Supreme Court enforce the penal rules of the Shariat when they have not been enacted by Parliament? Try to understand the difference between Canon law and the positive law. Now join the LL.B. class to learn something of law. By Mohammed Mahmood - 10/8/2016 5:13:52 AM

  • When it is matter of punishment specially physically then in an united state country none can be given freedom except it's original law and order according to one constitutional code and conduct! By Navadya Bharat - 10/8/2016 5:11:24 AM

  • @ Faraz Kazmi: First ask Mahashay Mukhtiyar Abbas to get the penal law of Islam enacted by Parliament then only you are entitled to demand that Muslims should be flogged or stoned to death. For the time-being only that part has been enacted which deals with the personal and family matters of Muslims, as other religious communities are allowed to be governed by their own personal laws. What is medieval about it? If you say Holy Quran is a medieval book then 1000 damns for you. By Mohammed Mahmood - 10/8/2016 5:09:49 AM

  • Comal Mahadevan Amrtheswaran Please define Sharia Laws. Also to the author Please quote verses from the Quran relating to "'Except for drinking alcohol, punishments for all other hudud crimes (mentioned in the Quran, considered crimes against God) are to be amputation, flogging and beheading. By Nasreen Ebrahim - 10/8/2016 5:07:23 AM

  • Don't be selective , if you wani khalifa vacars India settle in those country. As long as you live in India you are covered under IPC and constitution. Our earlier rule by congress govt. has created special privileges on religious ground because Indiraji is not Indira Gandhi but Indira Khan.Time has come for common civil code and law .

  • While all laws should be man made, they should follow the Quranic requirement that laws have to be fair, just, rational and egalitarian. By Ghulam Faruki - 10/8/2016 5:03:37 AM

    Wat is hurting islam and hinduism is xtremism of its own people
    By Shiv Rathore - 10/8/2016 5:00:47 AM

  • @Faraz Bro it's not sharia law basically government has given right to profess n propagate their religion in article 25 of the Constitution 
    And also give rights to make religious personal law board in civil matters like distribution of property,marriage,divorce n etc.
    Other punishment can not be implement according to islam because we have uniform criminal law in india
    And to implement sharia law internal and external security must in the hand of muslim within that state n they must hve khalifa/leader
    And triple talak is totally wrong thing.
    Which is not permitted in islam.
    It has some condition.
    If u r muslim then And hve some knowledge about islam 
    Before speaking these rubbish ...

  • Mr Subrata Roy Ji thanks for ur kind words. Yes,I will try my level best to do what u said but before doing so, I will try to read abt his work and contribution made to the country.... By Faraz Kazmi - 10/7/2016 9:25:53 AM

  • Mr Faraz you sound very balanced in your comments. Today many Indians have not heard about the great bangla poet lyricist and composer and a reformer second to none. He and his works are so relevant in todays world. Can you make people aware of the great Quazi Nazrul Islam? His contribution towards Indias freedom struggle is immense. By Subrata Roy - 10/7/2016 9:19:58 AM

  •  And y to worry on the matter of triple talaq, if our intention is not to take divorce...I will never worry on it because I don't have any intention of speaking it thrice and getting remarried.... Baki app log apna soche muje Na triple talaq SE dar hai Na single SE kynki mera koi aisa irada ni hai jinka irada hai aisa k wo teen baat bol k dubara krna chahte hai unko dar hoga muje ni By Faraz Kazmi - 10/7/2016 9:17:24 AM

  • @Ziauddin Avais If it's not Muslim country then y r u implementing Sharia law only in one matter...u suggest y it's so...Dr firoz Ali..... By Faraz Kazmi - 10/7/2016 9:08:28 AM

  • They say the God spelt the Sharia, and hence it should be adhered to. But, they reject the criminal codes and reject it in its entirety. Is it not tantamount to blasphemy? Or else, one has to conclude they have no belief in their own statement. By Comal Mahadevan Amrtheswaran - 10/7/2016 9:05:49 AM

  • @Faraz Kazmi  it is not islamic country By Ziauddin Avais - 10/7/2016 9:01:54 AM

  • Hmmm #Iqbal you got another question...you mentioned something abut debate....yes they are conducted all those places u have mentioned but your zakir naik wouldn't accept challenges na....have you seen any debate of zakir naik...no as I know he was challenged by more than 20 experienced debaters throughout the world but he didn't even replied them....do you know why because he knows it very well that he is strong infront of those people who dont know anything what he is speaking but listen to him because he is speaking related to them.... By Subhashish Rock - 10/6/2016 10:00:00 AM

  • Subhashish Rock , Arbaaz Saiyad debates are not conducted on fb. debates held on TV or in seminars and in OPEN forums. we believe in ONE GOD almighty the GOD of all humans and not in any moulana or fakir. nevertheless make an appointment with zakir and present your faith there. you have not answered previous question (1) do you agree that all anti conversion laws enacted by various states govt must be removed . let every community and leader including you my dear should be allowed to preach their religion and convert other people to their faith. AGREED or NOT. (2) in markets you will find hundred of rejoinders written for the books criticizing islam . but at the same time til date no one cound rebut or contradict Dr Ambedkar's riddles of hinduism. periyar's many ramayana's , By Iqbal Husain - 10/6/2016 9:53:57 AM

  • Hindi Idol: The implementation Shariah Laws as a whole in all spheres of life will positively affect the Muslims as it will become a deterrent to their criminal cravings, but Alas! the Hindus will become the dwellers of the Hell. By Raihan Nezami - 9/30/2016 12:11:55 AM

  • I think only a Muslim should talk about it, who fears Allah and love Muhammad(SAW) and read and follows noble Quran.
    for others it just time to abuse Islam and its followers.
    in Islamic countries they are practicing shariah only, India is a secular country not an Islamic country.
    Secular means in the matters of governance no religion is allowed. People who does not understand and follow it are confusing us with wonderful English.

  • Hindus would be more than happy to implement Sharia ONLY for muslims. It would end the lawlessness and riots from muslim criminals.  All punishments for muslim criminals must be as per sharia by our criminal courts.  You speak against our idolatory and we will punish you as per sharia blasphemy laws. Good.  Be ready.   By Hindi idol - 9/29/2016 7:48:41 PM

  • Reading all of above comments especially by Muslims , am Amazed at the intellectual deprivation of this community, and their willingness to follow the dictates framed thousands of years ago when humanity was largely barbaric. The  mentality of this community remains barbaric , and that's why compared as a ℅ of population Muslims achieving anything other than violence is miniscule. It's almost like they exist to kill or die  By Raghu - 9/29/2016 11:37:17 AM

  • while some parts of the argument on a religious issue (raised by this journal) may be sound and rational, the conclusions drawn on basis of such rationale by these non- scholars are not always correct. It is only our ulema (be them of any sect) who are the eligible and legal authority on deciding religious matters. It is important that our youth be not carried away by rhetoric of reformers, whether these reformers are of new age or old age.These people want to give the Indian judiciary the right to interpret Quran with regard to Muslim Personal  Law. This is a dangerous trend started by Indian ultra-seclarists

    Their argument rests on the premise that since we are not following the Islamic criminal laws in this country, why should we still  stick to the  150 year old Muslim pesonal Law Act and not allow Indian judiciary to reframe it . They forget that there are certain pre-requisites for penal laws of Shariat'(like cutting of hands for theft) fto be fully implementated in a Muslim milority country which are absent in our county( like collective Zakat by State is a pre- requisite). But for personal law,it can be observed on individual basis in a society. Just because penal laws(complete shariat) is not enforced ,does not give us an excuse for scrapping of the personal of Sharia (MPL) or make sharia less sacrosanct This is devious thinking and wrong conclusion and  will lead to fitna in our country.

  • Aayina: Have you responded to my comment addressed to Mr. Ghosh regarding his opinion about Shariah Laws and common civil code? You have addressed to me another point in your comment.

    I have reminded him that even BJP leaders favor ultimate and instant punishments of Shariah laws in some cases as he has blatantly criticized the laws.

    I have opined, Shariah laws are not without usefulness. In some cases, astringent and ultimate punishment given to the criminals instantly, serves as a deterrent to severe crimes.

    My opinion is regarding the defunct and redundant Indian penal codes where one lawyer charges the criminal with an IPC, and the other finds a loophole in the IPC to save the criminals-rapists- killers etc.

    By Raihan Nezami - 9/26/2016 11:39:57 PM

  • To Raihan Nezami,
    Just blaming BJP is not going to work, every political power structure through out history had remain business friendly and all other subject made to live hard life.
    Also war business in the past also, when Kings had not enough money left out for their kingdom they invade other country, the only difference in the past and now is humans were also consider product to sell and buy.
    In the past people use to lose the property, their belongings and thier own life in war, in recent era we lose through bank.
    I see bank as blessing the mighty thief are always going to steel from the public only difference in this era humans are not losing life as war business.
    I know you will argue that war is still as business, but my opinion is that the means of earning more money in past was either war or loot the people travelling, this has stopped as bank is looting.

  • Sanjay Gosh Ji: Your BJP leaders even demand Shariah Laws to be implemented in India to punish the rapists. You are right, no need of Common civil code, rather  you should make Shariah laws the common civil code. Your judicial system is already politically-affected, out-dated and billionaires-friendly.

  •  I agree with what he is saying, if Muslims wants Sharia law in the matter of divorce (talaq ) then they should ask the supreme court that whenever a Muslim commits a crime punish him according to the Sharia law...y only in the matter of divorce to implement Sharia law,implement it in other things too like if a Muslim is cought doing adultery the law systems should punish him according to Sharia by throwing stones until he die or lashes if he is a thief cut his hands etc etc By Faraz Kazmi - 9/25/2016 8:49:51 PM

  • Hanif bro please read your quran with meaning and Tafseer. You will understand the logic and reason behind each Surah and verse. It is an absolutely beautiful book .. Each chapter is so different in prose and poetry. When you read it feel the rhythm . For eg Surah mulk has its own rhyme , so does Surah Rahman. Surah muzzammil and muddassir has a different rhyming pattern . Lovely . And try to read the Quran in its chronological order . Start with Surah Alaq , then Qalam ... Pls note that Surah Baqarah which is the 2nd chapter in the book was actually the 87 th Surah to be revealed in medina is after 620 ad . I am sure all muslims if they read in this manner will be able to answer the bigots. By Ravi Kumar - 9/25/2016 10:02:57 AM

  • Implementation of total Sharia is possible when Islamic government is ruling the country...basic thing is when constitution is formed then for every religion personal law was formed and decided. Earlier there were no problem to any body,,,but soon as the colorization of Hindutva started and people has created lot of confusion and brought the matter to screen a weak system and not serving justice. Personal law in the constitution taking care mainly for marriage and property distribution......as far as triple Talaq is concerned is not a big issue and can easily solved with the mutual discussion of Ulema of all masaalik ,.....in fact media has publicized too much and presented it as a very big fault and sin,  on other hand they are not looking in to the matter of group rap, torching the girls, throwing acid on girls, corruption in ministry and administration, black money----openly  income tax people leaving big company s and business group to charge the real income  tax and un necessarily issuing the letter to retired persons of the age of 65 to 75 year old to show in office records that they are doing some work to get official money and making fool to public---alas I remember the old incident of shah Bano case when people approached the erstwhile pm of India Mr. Rajiv Gandhi and elaborately explained the method of Talaq in Islam ,then after hearing he told that it should be incorporated in Indian constitution, it is a very balance rule and serve other aspects of life........unfortunately the worldly systems implement the rules regulation where guarantee of poor and weak sector of woman is not taking care off.

    First of all, had it not been for the efforts of men like Sultan Shahin and millions of others, you and I would not even had a right to speak out against tyrants – Indira Gandhi’ s emergency rule would have made her president for life – if Modi is spared he could become a Hitler, and the Mullahs, Pundits and Pastors could become tyrants… who will stop them?
    The World is a better place to day because of free speech, without which political, religious and simply men tyrants would have kept billion of souls in misery.  
    God would not have give us the brains, if he did not want us to have freedom. Question everything and then accept o reject. 
    Except the creator, nothing is divine as all of them are finite items subject to erring.  Sharia is not divine at all, it is a system designed to do good, but is flawed and need to be fixed.
    Please check these two pieces Genesis of Sharia Law and fixing Sharia Laws at  World Muslim Congress. worldmuslimcongress.org/genesis-of-sharia-law-by-mike-ghouse/  and worldmuslimcongress.org/fixing-sharia-laws-by-mike-ghouse/

  • Three utterances of talaq by husband in one sitting in a state of anger or under influence of liquor Orr otherwise,  cannot confer legitimacy to the act of  ivorce. In fact impulsive talaq should not be counted at all even if uttered ten times.  Even Islamic talaq should be the result of sober deliberation after the conciliatory efforts have failed. The husband should then tender his talaq either evidenced by writing ( and delivery confirmed) or by witnesses present before both the parties. 

    However I am not clear about a special situation. If both husband and wife are willing to part ways, that is, if aversion is on both the sides, then perhaps quick completion of divorce would me more just and desirable. The three month quranic formula may not work in that case.

  • Firstly Javed Akhtar is self claimed atheist .And as such forfieted the right to speak as Muslim on Muslim matters.Secondly the aimplb is inviting trouble by its stubborn attitude not heeding advise by Muslim elite to ban Triple Talaq.The shariah is being maligned for it.
    The introduction of Triple Talaq was temporary and based on Ijtihad by Hazrath Umer to curb the misuse of Triple Talaq by the people of his time. The board has a precedent to follow and bring about the change. Why is the the door of Ijtihad Is shut.

  • Today's 'The Indian Express' reports: "The Centre is set to inform the Supreme Court that the practice of triple talaq is unconstitutional and also against gender equality."

  • The medieval punishments of flogging, amputation and beheading can not be implemented in India by AIMPLB as the constitution has given very limited powers to the religious groups.                

    Article 26 of our Constitution has given to all the religious minorities theright                                     (a) to establish and maintain institutions for religious and charitable purposes;                                                 (b) to manage its own affairs in matters of religion;                                                                                     (c) to own and acquire movable and immovable property;and                                                               (d) to administer such property in accordance with law                   

    Recently, India's Supreme Court rejected a petition seeking to ban Sharia courts, but stressed that they had no legal powers over Muslims and their decisions could not be enforced. The top court said that Islamic judges, who interpret religious law, could only rule when individuals submitted voluntarily to them and their decisions, or fatwas, were not legally binding.  “Sharia courts are not sanctioned by law and there is no legality of fatwas in this country,” C.K. Prasad said as he read out the judgment from a two-judge bench”.

  • The article has raised a recurring issue of “Triple Talaq” which has been under debate for so long, but the outcome has been zero till the date except that it has got some voices like Jawed Akhtar. The scholars agree that “Triple Talaq” in one go is un-Islamic, and the right way of its execution is well explained in the article. If the Muslims scholars emphasize upon the Islamic way of implementation of the “Triple Talaq”, this issue will die a natural death. Its benefits can not be undermined as it saves our time in getting a formal divorce from the court which is already over-burdened so much that 70% of the prisoners are under-trial, a convict-cum-prisoner comes out of jail innocent after 23 years of imprisonment. There are so many dowry- deaths, bride-burnings and domestic violence causing even deaths by the in-laws to save themselves from the painstaking trials in the courts to get legal divorce. The “Triple Talaq” or the Islamic way of divorce saves women from domestic violence causing unnatural deaths and life-long torture. There will be no objection to the jurisprudence of supreme court as all the concerned parties will be satisfied. By Raihan Nezami - 9/23/2016 4:10:02 PM

  • There is nothing divine. There is no proof of that except conflicting claims. Dinosaurs ruled this planet for 180 million years. Humans have arrived on the scene barely 50,000-200,000 years ago. The oldest traces of human civilization are not more than 10,000 years old. Even if we believe that all this was done by a God, then why the hell the so-called God remembered to arrive on the scene only 1,450 odd years ago and that also in a desert to enact a law for all times to come ? Why he did not create a law on cyber crime, shipping, mining, aviation, nuclear power or, telecommunications ? May be, he was not educated enough and knew about only sheep, camels and donkeys. Come on, show maturity and stop fooling people. Even a college student knows more than the writers of Sharia today. Let us frame all laws through debate and discussions and not because of the whims and fancies of less informed people of medieval times.  By Ashok Sharma - 9/23/2016 3:19:39 PM

  • There is no Muslim personal law. There are family laws of every community. Every law needs to be reviewed from time to time. But a family law in Muslim societies would be effective, if it does not contradict the essence of Islam. By Manzurul Haque - 9/23/2016 1:36:53 PM

  • While all laws should be man made, they should follow the Quranic requirement that laws have to be fair, just, rational and egalitarian.

  • I believe there is nothing wrong in thinking sharia is a divine law. All religions seems to have their own version of sharia but majority of religions went through reformation and abandoned in most instances archaic laws and created their own constitutions which gets changed depending on situations and which cannot remain constant. As Muslims believe Quran and its derivatives are divine and cannot be changed under any circumstance non Muslim or secular governments are in a bind which seems to be very difficult to overcome ex: India and UK. I sympathize with Muslim women who become victims to selective sharia and no support from constitution ex: shahbano case. As Islamic reformation is not acceptable in secular countries due to minority fear mongering, and in case of India constant meddling by Pakistan to extort Muslims against India ex: Kashmir. In my humble opinion I think of solutions like

    1. A conference of ulema of all major Muslim institutes and Muslim countries to convene and codify sharia so as to give justice to women, men, children as per sharia and Islamic jurisprudence.
    2. Muslims moving to Islamic nations and follow that countries version of sharia and where Muslims as majority have a major say and acceptable to them as per Islam. This prevents them to have an option of going through country based constitution which Muslims seem to oppose in secular nations. As per Mr.Shaheen it seems Pakistan has amended its personal laws which became acceptable to its awam. 

    Staying either in India, UK, France, USA seems to be triggering a lot of insecurity in Muslim younger generation and we need to find a solution in order to prevent future URI attacks, San bernadino, Orlando, Paris, London, Brussels airport attack. We all vow this humanity what ever our religious beliefs are.
