Islam and Sectarianism


  • Bhat we are Muslims that is final don't try to separate us from each other By Tanveer Ul Islam - 3/2/2017 11:48:40 PM

  • Mr. Sudhir Bharti: You know nothing about a believer of Islam. It's ridiculous that you claim to understand Makki and Madani Surah. You can't understand a single Kalmah of Quran as your intentions are negative and destructive. Last month an RSS minded police officer had disclosed that all the fake encounters were plannings of evil minded that made Mr Modi reach to Delhi. Likewise, Godhra train fire was lit was Sanghis to polarise the Hindus with an eye on forthcoming elections in 2002.  By Raihan Nezami - 2/26/2017 10:49:45 AM

  • Mr Sudhir Bharti: Recently a great number of Hindus are arrested in MP who are linked with ISIS. Furthermore, the RSS, ABVP, RAM SENA. DURGA VAHINI and associates
    are trading in hatred in various temples of learning to earn vote and support for their creators.

In terms of islam believer in not a person who believes in the supreme power and is at liberty to establish link with him in his desire...See More By Sudhir Bharti - 2/26/2017 8:01:22 AM

  • Unbelievers see the world with their eyes as they are not blinded by a mere belief. Peace and tranquility among its followers is the basic sign of a Dharma. Muslims through out the world are deprived of it. Thanks to its theory of Taqfirism and self proclaimed soldiery of Allmighty which they call Allah. By Sudhir Bharti - 2/26/2017 8:00:56 AM

  • @Naeem you deliberately skipped mentioning the valor of those brave men who burnt unarmed and unsuspecting Hindus in train compartment at Godhara. It had triggered all unpleasant incidents. I know it does not suit you.

  • @Naeem Ahmed, you have turned blind eye towards Supreme Court which said RSS was not involved. Either you are ignorant or lying blatant. By Sudhir Bharti - 2/26/2017 7:33:32 AM

  • Sura al Qafiroon. Mr Dr. What does it read? What is prescribed for a Qafir in quran by Allah? What treatment should be done with those who discard Islam? Please explain it to kafirs. Let us know how peaceful Islam is. Practical proof is visible through out the world. Where ever Islam reached it brought bloodshed and destruction. By Sudhir Bharti - 2/26/2017 7:23:43 AM

  • Tariq Fateh ...lol...

  • @Sudhir Bharti, Your are totally lying. How many RSS workers are arrested with Bomb and other material, they have killed Mahatma Gandhi. With goverment support they are set freed and evidence against them removed. By Naeem Ahmed - 2/26/2017 7:20:02 AM

  • I think you are lonely voice in Islamic world. There is nothing wrong in any religion but priest of religion in connivance with Politicians made it worse . Religion came in to existence for liberation of men but instead it made people slave by suppressing free thinking. By Indrajeet Singh - 2/25/2017 2:41:13 AM

  • Ulemas r enemy of Islam. They preserve their own interests. People think law made by ulemas r unchangeable and paralled them to Quran. By this actually they r doing shirk. By Rouf Molla - 2/25/2017 2:33:11 AM

  • Mr Sultan Shahin,
    I admire your brave effort as an eye opener for the Islamic orthodox,being driven by selfish politicians and Mulla's.
    Sir,your effort should reach the lowest rank in the Islamic society which are badly extorted,and the elite islamists like to keep them backward for personal gain.
    Hence you think a method that your mission may reach the downyrroden poor ,who ate deprived of social media.

  • I have time and again challenged this person that is the author.. to show where is it .. the sects.. killing innocent people.. in Quran..
    he is a paid writer to malign Islam and just to further divide Islam.. if not he or his admirers show something that is wrong from Quran..first then give lectures....

    By Mastan Shaik - 2/25/2017 1:31:26 AM

  • @Vishnu,.its the Wahabi interpretation of the verses. Wahabism teaches sectarian fanaticism, intolerance and killings of non-believerd.

  • 'People of the book' refers to Christians

    By Vishnu Prasad S - 2/25/2017 1:28:54 AM

  • Quran (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."

    By Vishnu Prasad S - 2/25/2017 1:28:26 AM

  • @Mohd Yunus Quran (9:5) - "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the #idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them."

    By Vishnu Prasad S - 2/25/2017 1:27:43 AM

  • Dear Vihnu Prasad ji please quote Qur'anic verses with full detail I will tell you that what is it for and what was context because some verses are contextual .

    By Mohd Yunus - 2/25/2017 1:26:59 AM

  • Sir.. you said extremism is found in all sects of Islam. We cant blame #Wahabbism alone. I had gone through some of the 'verses' frm #Quran. Now im jst pointing one of the #theology frm quran. ' Christians, vedic followers, non followers of islam r truth-less peoples. If Allah want 'those' peoples can be coverted into goodness, but Allah will never ever do this. You need to always keeps distance frm 'those' peoples, because 'they' r truth-less peoples'.

  • Wahabis are promoting this ideology.

    By Dar Tauseef Dar - 2/25/2017 1:16:52 AM

  • Extremisam is possible in every religion due to so many factors - Religion must controlled-guided by knowledgeable - intelectuals - spritualist. All religious leaders will be respected when they are humanitarian. We appeal all religious heads to condemn masscare - extremisam. All friends we need inculcate more thought process - equitable distibution - equitable opportunity along with knowledge management. Exploitation - emotions will be balanced thru education - knowledge sharing. some freinds try to ask about manuvadi. what manuvadi we are looking the above philosphy in every religion. let us not to criticise and work for peace - development. If strong human life any body feed first we work and Kashmir or pakistan relatives pl awake and see the experience in syria - iraq . As u see Afganistan progressing but some forces disturbing. wish share share and get results - forward. OH GOD BLESS ALL OF US FOR PEACE - DEVELOPMENT.

  • Yes.. u also said the #Quranic verses were corrupted during war-times. Is that is the problem with Islam nd quran now??

    By Vishnu Prasad S - 2/25/2017 1:12:21 AM

  •  One has to hear Goenkaji's talks on extremism and why Vipassana must be maintained in its pristine purity so that any sectarianism must not be entertained. I moot any interested in addressing extremism explore more of Goenkaji and Vipassana ... I will see what I can add relevantly with time.

    By Deepa Natarajan - 2/25/2017 1:11:50 AM

  • Jihad is the peak of ISLAM.
    Khalid bin Waleed was known as sword of ALLAH
    Wht does it imply?
    We r proud if v r called terrorists n fundamentalists bcoz v terrify the anti social elements n follow the fundamentals of ISLAM.
    We also denounce the INDIAN RAW BACKED TTP HANDLED SUICIDE BLAST,but wht z unfortunate is that u r presenting ur view from wrong context.
    Wht u refer to i know is Hafiz Saaeed,Hazrat Moulana Masood Azhar sahab and mullahs like them
    Let me clarify u that these terrorists r not the products of any madrassa run by these previliged Mullahs.These r exclusively Indian sponsored.If they terrorists had been orthodox muslim products,then they could not have carried out blasts in busy places thereby killed number of Muslim Ummah becoz ISLAM COMPLETELY DENOUNCES INNOCENT KILLINGS.So to point at the esteemed Mullahs,u r just trying to ridicule ISLAM.It is bcoz f them Muslims hv security.Our Mullahs always defended never offended.They could have carried out blasts mainly in Non Muslim States,but never did so,had they been Terrorists.The terrorists in world r sponsored by the three big TERRORISTS OF ERA,i.e.,INDIA AMERICA AND ISREAL.Moreover name of ur page is itself contradictory.
    Never again point ur finger towards our Mullahs,otherwise we KASHMIRIS will cut ur finger.

    By Rouf Molla - 2/25/2017 12:59:46 AM

  • @ Rouf Molla If Pakistan calls itself Islamic republic, it should be on its priority to prohibit shirk, instead it promoted it. Hence, somebody else corrected it.

    By Mohammad Arif - 2/25/2017 12:59:16 AM

  • Mohammad arif's statement is condemnable and punishable. He is openly supporting ISIS

  • >> So,does your Qur'an say only muslims committing Shirk should…
    What's "muslim committig shirk"? The one who commits shirk is NOT a muslim.

    By Mohammad Arif - 2/25/2017 12:52:31 AM

  • @Mohammad Arif So,does your Qur'an say only muslims committing Shirk should be killed or non-muslims committing shirk also should be killed? 

    By Shehnaz Naikk - 2/25/2017 12:51:12 AM

  • >> Who have given right to kill innocent people. 
    Allah. He has prescribed death penalty for those who spread fitnah. If openly doing shirk and institutionalising it, is not fitnah, what is it? 
    >>U r not judge. If they r heretic Allah will punish them hereafter
    What I'm saying is not my personal opinion/judgement. Allah says in Quran:"Judge among you by Allah's word"
    That's what I'm doing.
    By Mohammad Arif - 2/25/2017 12:50:31 AM

  • I wondered how people justify killing of human just because of differences in methods of of worship.

  • >> Only a demented idiot will subscribe to the killing of grave visitors.
    Not visitors, worshippers. Prophet also visited graves but he did not ask for a job or for a child from baba.

    By Mohammad Arif - 2/25/2017 12:32:49 AM

  • Only a demented idiot will subscribe to the killing of grave visitors. Who the hell are u to dub them Mushrik..Really half knowledge is dangerous. A section of fanatics among Muslims are the root cause of this demonisation of Muslims among the civilized soul's.

    By Akhtar Imam - 2/25/2017 12:25:22 AM

  • Abbas Abdi Mohammad Arif I disagree with you I too do not subscribe to their ways but at the same time I respect their way of observing their faith and certenly not kllling them , You Mohammad Asif are a potential of violence I hope the law enforcement are monitoring you hopefully they will do the need full...

    By Syed Arif - 2/25/2017 12:23:57 AM

  • >> So are you saying the killings was right....?
    Yes. People danced there. The crowd there was because of women. And women because of superstition.
    People kiss black stone because prophet did it. Qalandar XYZ is not a prophet. Also Muslims just kiss it, they do not worship it or demand things from it. While people visit Qalandar for jobs, babies, cure from ailements, which is equivalent to worshipping.
    How can a dead man inside grave help us. He himself must be in need of help.

    By Mohammad Arif - 2/25/2017 12:18:30 AM

  • @Muhammad Arif So are you saying the killings was right....?

    By Syed Arif Abbas Abdi - 2/25/2017 12:16:45 AM

    By Bhuvaneswar Chilukuri - 2/25/2017 12:10:00 AM

  •  Muslims are only the follower of Allah and any kind of Shirk is not allowed in Islam if any one doing then he will be no more Muslim and he must leave the identity of Muslim so that other could not get confused; those who are creating violence or terrorising people in the name of religion or nationalism or other ism ;they never be religious.

    By Mohd Yunus - 2/25/2017 12:06:43 AM

  • @Mohd Yunus You are not any body to judge a person..May be these Shrine visitors are better than you in hundred ways.you should try to better yourself than criticizing others.

    By DrRahul Kumar - 2/25/2017 12:01:17 AM

  • @Shehnaz Naikk Of course I am not a perfect Muslim and I m trying my best to follow absolutely Islam but I don't deny the the basic of Islam ;these people are doing absolutely wrong as per Islam .It is very clear that Islam does not allow any kinds of violence and terrorism; no one have right to give punishment except Allah .

    By Mohd Yunus - 2/25/2017 12:00:27 AM

  • @ Mohd YunusDo u follow the Islam completely?Are you yourself a perfect muslim?The fact is that nobody is a perfect muslim.if somebody is committing shirk,let god deal with them.

    By Shehnaz Naikk - 2/24/2017 11:55:18 PM

  • @Miss Sonia you are requested to use terms appropriately we know that what is demonic faith and in which religion demons are mentioned but I don't wan to discuss more;the Muslims have reservation that in the name of Muslims don't terrorise people and also don't do anything against Islam; at the same time every one either Hindu or Muslim or any one else have right to chose his /her own religion and pray accordingly but there is some rules and regulation of religion which are compulsory to follow if not he or she free to leave religious identity.

    By Mohd Yunus - 2/24/2017 11:53:57 PM

  • @Mohd Yunus In a way u support d act n d hatred behind .... d 1 who has reservations for any faith tht doesn't support violence n is loving is actually a extremist ,a terrorist mentality ,in a way most muslims do that,thts y Islam has emerged as a demonic faith rather than a humane faith.

    By Sonia Sharma - 2/24/2017 11:52:04 PM

  • @Mohd yunus Why not? They r also worshipers of Allah in their own way.

    By Ajoy Dutta - 2/24/2017 11:47:32 PM

  • Islamic problem is that Koran explicitly supports Wahabi ideology - there is nothing in Koran that supports Sufi culture.

    So to eliminate Wahabi ideology one will need to change Koran. Can muslims do this?  By Raman - 2/24/2017 11:47:03 PM

  • @Atul No ;never no one have right to kill any one they all ate creature of Allah they have their own life cycle which is set by Allah; They can go where ever they want but they should not level themselves as Muslim.

    By Mohd Yunus - 2/24/2017 11:46:18 PM

  • @Mohd Yunus.. since sufism is not true Islam we should kill all of them.. who goes majar n.. other places

    By Atul Shukla - 2/24/2017 11:41:25 PM

  • Problem with muslims and their Ulema is that they have never read the Quran.
    They are divided I to sects ready to murder each other .
    Their enemies just have to watch while they slaughter each other.
    This is Allah's Azab on them soon they will realize

    By Shahid Ali Khan - 2/24/2017 11:39:43 PM

  • @Abu Basim Khan  So what? U have no right to kill them in the name of Islam. Let them live with their belief. They r not harmiing u.

    By Ajoy Dutta - 2/24/2017 11:31:47 PM

  • You know that Shahin self agree and write New Islam and he is follower of new Islam like Akbar Deene Ilahi.Sultan Shain don't follow of Qur'an and authentic Hadees Islam.The Islam of Allah and Prophet Mohammad. He is second Tarik Fatha.

    By Abu Basim Khan - 2/24/2017 11:31:01 PM

  • @Sultan Lone you want to say the non muslim if killed in a mosque only would be an example of Islamic terrorism? Do not talk right and left. Recall incident of 1990 when on the valley calls were given from mosque asking Hindus to vacate Kashmir leaving behind their women. No muslim organization came forward to save them. What happens with Hindus in Pakistan? Their women are kidnapped, forcibly converted and married to muslims. You did not say anything whether a non muslim has a right to preach his religion in a muslim country or not. Whether a muslim is allowed to covert his faith or not. Afjal Guru is not a case of bigotry. He mounted an armed assault on unarmed persons. Thanks for suggesting me to go to a mosque and to read quran. For your information I have read quran and I find my religious books are far superior. I am a daily reader of Gita and try to follow it in my life. I invite you to go through it, read commentary on it by OSHO. You will get peace which ever alluded muslims.

    By Sudhir Bharti - 2/24/2017 11:29:42 PM

  • @Sudhir Bharti Please cite examples where nonmuslims have been killed in mosques for not believing in Islam under legal system. I don't subscribe to terrorists acts. Yes one who spreads fitna that means a conflict which leads to war or fighting is to be killed. Every country has this law. Under this law Afzal Guru was hanged. Allah says your job is to convey message not to force it. I will request you to visit Masjid read Quran yourself. It is in simple language. Don't listen to anybody.

    By M Sultan Lone - 2/24/2017 11:22:48 PM

  • @Sultan Lone Islam without doubt is a political and military doctrine. Mosques are the places which are permitted to be used for these purposes. Killing kafirs, capturing their women and distriuting them among muslims, put those to death who desert Islam, all are commanded in quran which some believe are the words of Ishwar. All powers are inherent into Caliph and those should be killed who create FITNA in an islamic country is the laid principle. It clearly proves my point. What is the definition of fitna and who would decide it? Clearly, it is mulla who has this authority. Even a peaceful person giving message of his own religion other than islam is to be blamed for fitna. This religion portraits the image of Allmighty of a jealous, cruel and intolerant power. Where ever it reached people lost peace, lost their heritage, culture and identity. Its concept of Allmighty is so poor that it can not compete with Dharma of the East. Any way so far you have not come clear on any of the point raised by me. You can not I think. By Sudhir Bharti - 2/24/2017 11:18:21 PM

  • @Sudhir Bharti Muslims have a socio- legal system not poltical system . As per modern lines. Modern poltics follows mechavalianism. Nothing is wrong in achieving the end. While as religion follows the pleasure of Allah or Almighty or God. So to achieve the pleasure of Almighty wrong ways can't be treaded. But to achieve power religion, caste, colour, money power, musle power, wine etc can be used. It depends what works that will be used. Einstein discovered formula for solving energy crises of world it was used in the creation of nuclear bombs. But we can't blame Einstein By M Sultan Lone - 2/24/2017 11:12:56 PM

  • Sultan Lone. Islam is inclusive of politics. It is a cocktail. The point is non muslims are ignorant of its reality. They have a misconception that all the religions are same. No it is not. Islam at least does not think so. It is the root cause of kashmir problem. By Sudhir Bharti - 2/24/2017 11:09:52 PM

  • @Shafeeq correct your information. Babari Mosque was.constructed demolishing a temple. Not only it Some Nath Temple was also destroyed in Gujarat. Gyanwapi mosque at varanasi and mosque at krishna janm bhumi at mathura were also constructed on demolished temple sites. These are only few examples. Terrorists activities started with muslim attacks on hindus. Hindus had every right to take back their place of worship in a similar fashion in which muslims demand Al Aksa mosque. You are envy of RSS because it talks of Hindus, it unites them. This right to unite in the name of religion you want to keep only for muslims. Is it not true? Another thing. None is interested to know who is true muslim and who is not. It is up to you to discuss it. We have enough experience to know the muslim behaviour. Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Kashmir are glaring examples that Hindu population disappeared from those places. It is amusing that instead of coming clear on the points raised by me in my comments, you talked of Babari masjid. For you if I am a kafir, why I should not treat you a Mlechha!!!

  • @Sudhir bharti terrorist activites in india stared after babri majsid demolishen but no true muslim in india or any other part of thecworld support terrorism 
    If we indian wants to live peacrfull It is up to government and RSS because the governments be it congress or any otger party in india are not taking communialism seriously

  • @Sudhir Bharti These are poltical games of polticians. These are played everywhere.

    By M Sultan Lone - 2/24/2017 11:06:12 PM

  • Muslims brought Congress leadership on its knee and made , pakistan,homeland for them. What is the condition of muslims in their homeland? The same Kadiyanies who were in forefront for pakistan were second only to Hindus to be killed. Not only it they lost even their muslim identity . Jinnah was a Shia and his clan too suffered same fate. We know the condition of human rights in POK is worse. Even then if want a separation, migrate to that side.

    By Sudhir Bharti - 2/24/2017 11:05:34 PM

  • @M Sultan Lone Counting heads does not prove any point. Hindus who are the son of soil suffer for no fault. Separatists fueled by Islamic mindset started the bloodshed and are still doing so. Killing unarmed and submissive Hindus they became ghazi. Now they face armed forces and bullet spares none. Despite all we exercise maximum restrain otherwise valley would have been vacant. By Sudhir Bharti - 2/24/2017 11:04:37 PM

  • @Sudhir Bharti Muslims died 80000 and Hindus 225 . But that should not have happened. It was sad incident. But they still are fond of kashmiries and are visiting. We participate in their social functions. By M Sultan Lone - 2/24/2017 11:00:34 PM

  • @ M Sultan Lone Also visit Kashmiri Hindus who were persecuted and purged out of their homeland by Muslims. In 1991 they were massacred and their women raped, property looted. Why ? Because they were Hindus and did not support separation on the basis of religion. Therefore do not play victim as the folly is yours. By Sudhir Bharti - 2/24/2017 10:53:06 PM

  • Let the Sultan shahin visit the jails of India and the world and find how many people are in jails who are undergoing trial in terrorism or crime and were studying in Madrassas and how many are from government schools. When we wanted to find out how many stone pelters are from Madrassas we nill. Actually it is a mind set of Sultan shahin that he will fabricate stories against Muslims and their institutions. He is mentally so sick that he targets Muslims for the wrong of others. By M Sultan Lone - 2/24/2017 10:51:57 PM

  • Nakkarkhaane mein tootee kee aawaaz ? By Dinesh Gupta - 2/24/2017 10:51:21 PM

  • The Wahhabi theology barely allows its followers to survive without resorting to violence.  Its enclosure movement that considers only those agreeably currying favour with the Wahhabi theology as Muslims, and the rest as “Mushrik” or “Kaafir” or “Bidati” while simultaneously justifying the killing of these “Mushrik” is what can be seen as a primary source of terrorism.

    Given the condemnatory words outspoken by the general secretary of JAH, Maulana Asghar Ali Imam Mehdi, it is not unfit to say that the Wahhabi theology is implicitly engaged in manufacturing terrorists and then the Wahhabi leaders condemning and blaming them for being terrorists.

  • Janab Sultan Shahin Sb has been doing his level best for the reformation of the wrongdoings in Islamic practices within his limited resources even risking his life and honor. There is hardly any appreciation and recognition from the elite group of different sects testing the patience in good work to the fullest.

    In India, especially, the Muslims have greater problems of bread and butter, education and employment, equality in government establishment and job opportunities than triple talaq, halala or polygamy etc. No religious leader or political minority group pays attention to these genuine problems except lip service. That is why the leaders of various sects are busy in garnering riches for them forming their parties or by supporting others.

    Some scholars are trying to raise the issues related to the wrong ways of Islamic practices that also goes in vain, as no takers are there in field of the Muslim society; we are unable to solve our problems-social, economical, educational, political, nor religious.

    The euphoria created about triple talaq and halala is simply a case of polarization of votes by the extremist group of Hindus. For polygamy, in a society where about 90% of the population is below poverty line, hand to mouth, living in utter impoverishment; who is going for a second marriage if they do not have resources to marry once, to feed their own parents and kids and family members?

  • The World Bank Group and the Islamic Development Bank published the first Global Report on Islamic Finance, which details the prospects for the global Islamic finance industry and its potential to help reduce worldwide income inequality, enhance sharing prosperity, and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
    Subtitled “A Catalyst for Shared Prosperity?”, the report provides an overview of trends in Islamic finance, identifies major challenges hindering the industry’s growth, and recommends policy interventions to leverage Islamic finance for promoting shared prosperity.
    Islamic finance advocates for just fair and equitable distribution of income and wealth. With a strong link to the real economy as well as risk-sharing financing, Islamic finance can help improve the stability of the financial sector. It can also bring into the formal financial system people who are currently excluded from it due to cultural or religious reasons. Unlike conventional finance, Islamic finance is based on risk-sharing and asset-based financing. By making people direct holders of real assets in the real sector of the economy, it reduces their aversion to risk.
    The report outlines a theoretical framework to analyze Islamic economics and finance based on four fundamental pillars:
    Institutional framework and public policy
    Prudent governance and accountable leadership
    Promotion of an economy based on risk sharing and entrepreneurship
    Financial and social inclusion
    The report notes, however, areas where policy interventions are needed to develop Islamic finance’s effectiveness and fulfill its potential in helping to reduce inequality. These interventions include:
    Enhance harmonization, implementation and enforcement of regulations
    Create institutions that provide credit and other information to support equity-based finance, particularly for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs)
    Develop capital markets and ṣukūk products to help finance large infrastructure projects
    Provide regulatory recognition of products from other jurisdictions to expand the markets through cross-border transactions
    What’s needed to overcome these challenges?
    The Islamic finance industry needs to expand beyond banking, which is currently a dominant component of Islamic finance, accounting for more than three-quarters of the industry’s assets.
    However, for the banking sector, the report recommends creating an enabling regulatory and supervisory environment that addresses systemic risk across jurisdictions; introducing innovative risk-sharing products and services, rather than replicating conventional risk-transfer products; unifying cross-country sharī‘ah rulings on Islamic finance; enhancing access to Islamic finance; and bolstering Islamic finance human capital and literacy.
    Another area of development is Islamic capital markets. While still relatively young, they can provide opportunities to build assets but through equity- and asset-based finance. Particularly, the ṣukūk markets (Islamic bond) are suitable for financing infrastructure and encouraging entrepreneurship. The use of sovereign ṣukūk to mobilize financing is essential to develop the market, as well as to promote transparency and efficiency of the asset pricing, according to the report.
    The report also notes that policy makers should prioritize the development of non-bank financial institutions, which are currently underdeveloped and underutilized. For example, Islamic insurance, takāful, could provide important benefits to households and firms, improving their access to financial services.
    Lastly, the report notes that using Islamic social finance can alleviate poverty and create a social safety net for the extremely poor, considering that these institutions and instruments (qard hasan, zakāt, sadaqāt, waqf) are rooted in redistribution and philanthropy. The report recommends to create governance systems to support orderly function of the Islamic social finance sector.
    By tapping into the potential of the institutions like zakāt and waqf, the report estimates that resource needs for the most deprived in most countries in South and Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa could be met.

  • Why Salafi-Wahhabis refuse to accept that their own theology causes so much of turmoil in the Middle East and other parts of the world?

    What do they think of Islamic Justice and jurisprudence?

    Why their common sense failed to see the truth even after witnessing the horrendous death and destruction by al-Qaeda, ISIS, Taliban, Al-Shabaab and Boko Haram?

    Is there any statistician in this Salafi-Wahhabi group? At this rate how many millions of Shias, Sufis Ahmadis etc will be massacred in the future? How many billions of non-Muslims will be massacred until the end of the world? How many cities in the world will be destroyed like Syria?

    In the circumstances how can we blame the Americans for choosing Donald Trump as President? Or blaming Britons for Brexit?

  • RSS is a.nationalist organization which advocates of inclusive Hindutva. In its domain muslims too come. To identify themselves with Arab muslim invaders is the mindset of muslims which drive them to be in a denial mode from their roots. That is why Allama Iqbal to whom muslims call rehmetulla alaih said he would not even do Sajda on unholy land of Hind. The same man, who wrote sare jahan se achha... . When a person identifies himself as a muslim he takes it in total and this identity is defined by mulla. Indian mulla is no better.

  • Dear Naseer Sahab,

    You have said, NAI could not take its ideas of reform to even University level. I will put it this way. The Muslim intellectual elite in India has almost completely ignored NAI despite its best efforts to attract them through extensive and quality coverage of its site. I am sure many bright students, scholars and faculty members of prestigious Indian universities would be getting their personal copies of NAI every day of and that is the best that Sultan Shahin Sb can do. I don't think his resources permit him to have conferences with University boards to arouse the interest or provoke the participation of their faculty members. And besides, it is not his job, nor is it going to have any impact. He is an intermediary in getting the voices and views of people like you, me, GM Sahab and others published. He cannot do any canvassing for us or for his web-portal. The ball is in your court.

  • Mohd. Yunus/ Mohammed Arif

    First premises the Qur’an expounded for all humanity is the use of reason. From both of your comments you do not seem to be using reason. You say, “those who were killed were actually committing most heinous crime and in the same breadth you say, Islam does not allow any kinds of mascara or violence against any one Islam is for peace”

    ” If your second premise holds the first premise is contradicted. That is, how a religion that does not allow any kinds of violence can at the same time allow some of its followers to carry out a massacre in the Mazar.

    Obviously you are advocating ‘takfirm’ – an ideology that allows a Muslim to declare other Muslims who commit shirk as kafir and kill them simply on account of their religious orientation. An internationally reputed scholar of Islam has denounced Takfirism through his following article the caption of which speaks for itself:

    ISIS/ Takfiris Are Friends Of Satan, The Enemies Of Allah And His Messenger, Foremost In Shirk, Hypocrisy, And Apostasy And No Muslim Must Support Them In Any Form Or Fashion



     Based on the above fatwa, those who support the massacre at the Mazar stand as Friends of Satan, the enemies of Allah and His Messenger, foremost in shirk, hypocrisy, and apostasy and no Muslim must support them in any form or fashion.

    In one word, the Qur’an does not allow any Muslim to kill a Mushrik or people of any other faith on the ground of their religious beliefs.

    The ugliness in Islam’s religious thoughts in this era is expounded in my following article the caption of which speaks for itself:

    Radicalism Under The Banner Of Islam Is Mutation Of Islam Into A Cult Of Satan – So Muslims Must Create An Anti-Radicalization Narrative To Defeat And Disown It – Part 1

  • mr naseer ahmed should try making a youtube channel about his interpretation of the Holy Qur'an.

    in my opinion, the youtube videos of ulemas are priming pumps for aimless muslim youth brought up on the nihilistic arabian version of islam.

    if his inetrpretations can compete with the stupid, exclusionary, rigid and uncompromising messages in the cyberspace, it could be worthwhile.

    even if his opinions influence a couple of hundred youngsters, he would have made a tremendous impact.

    unless an effort is made to seize the narrative from the likes of zakir naiks, youth will be drawn to the most bizarre,. supremacist and intolerant version they can find.

    and these are just plenty.

  • I am a great fan of Mr. Sultan Shahin. I have been following him since long. His scholarship is profound. 
    But, with due all respect, sir, I must say that the real problem is not that Islamic practices have been corrupted. The real problem is that Islam can not be improved upon. Whenever we call any doctrine as perfect , we effectively declare that it can not adapt with new developments. Now going back and cleaning the corrupt practices can give expected results to some extent. But that is rarely sufficjent in long term.Islam does not need more cleaners, but one good reformer. But again - is the idea of reform itself acceptable within Islam ?
    By Ajoy Chakra - 2/21/2017 12:31:10 PM

  •  An excellent and well researched piece -  it fills the gap in my simultaneously posted article re German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s call to delimitate Islam from terror. My article questions whether Islamic clergy and authorities really believe that Islam is a religion of peace. The article answers it upfront. If Abdul Wahab advocated the killing of mystic Muslims and mushriks on account of their religious beliefs and practices – then he certainly does not believe that Islam is a religion of peace. Posthumously, he appears to be an ideological ally of al-Baghdadi – chief of ISIS who claims that Islam is a religion of violence, and the same may be the case with those Ulama and religious authorities of this era who follow his doctrine – assuming it is reported correctly.

    The problem in Islam’s theological assumptions and determinations is that people take their ‘masters’ of the past virtually like prophets (who must be obeyed and followed) and their writings virtually like the word of God. al-Baghdadi goes on his killing rampage as in his subconscious mind he takes Abdul Wahab as his prophet and his discourses as God’s words. And this tendency can be traced back to the Prophet’s era.

    As long as Islamic religious thought are dominated by the examples of their predecessors, the Muslims can commit the most heinous crime in the name of Islam depending upon their choice of mentor. This deification of mortals has stripped Islam of its divine heritage and is at the root of all kinds of violence in the name of Islam including sectarianism, violent extremism.
