Islamic Ideology (18 Jan 2018 NewAgeIslam.Com)


  • All praise is to Allah who has preserved the Message inspite of concerted efforts to corrupt it with concocted ahadith and the tafseers of the  bigoted mufassirin. 

    When I see how different the Message of the Quran is from the ahadith, I realize what would have happened if Allah had not Himself taken the responsibility to protect and preserve the Quran from corruption. The Muslims would have simply written the whole text backwards!

  • Fighting was against persecution and in this sense this article is praiseworthy.

  • If we can be role models, so can others? Are Gandhiji, Martin Luther King Jr, the Dalai Lama and Pope Francis not good universal role models?

  • Histories are written by the victors. If we discard even Ibn Ishaq and Waqidi then there is no way to discover what the Meccans thought and acted upon.

  • Our theology has codified the five pillars and the six articles of faith.  Why has it failed to derive the principles of War from the Quran as guidance to all Muslims? Why have they left every individual to take whatever meaning they wish to take? Similarly, our theology has failed to identify the role models that Allah expects us to become for the rest of the world to follow covered in my article:

    The Role Models in the Quran

    Is this not a sign of poor scholarship? Isn’t the failure to cover these important subjects in the same manner as the pillars and articles of faith that has hurt us most as a community?

  • Dear Steve,

    Thanks for entering this site and posting your comment which only represents the popular opinion based on 'Islamic sources'. Unfortunately the 'Islamic sources' are rooted in the works of Ibn Ishaq, al-Waqid Ibn Sa'd which were compiled some 200+ years after the Prophet's death by piecing together bits and pieces of stories and poems that had evolved in the preceding centuries more as a folk-lore than a historical account. Many of the accounts reported are not supported by any transmission chain or first hand witnessing. The Qur'an whether divine or man-made is preserved verbatim and offers glimpses on the Prophet's mission captured in full light of history. If you care take a look at my following article to see what the Qur'an testifies about the battles fought by the Prophet:

  • Not even asingle war by the prophet was defensive. Behind every war there was a lust for booty and women. The author has either not read the original islamic texts or is just being plain deceitful.

  • While our Prophet  fought valiantly for the defense of Islam  and for the defense of his followers against some ruthless aggressors, it is not necessary to incorporate this war history as an essential component in a religion of peace. The only ones who are being inspired by these verses are Al Qaeda, the Talibans and ISIS.
    War policies are best left to secular institutions such as national governments, the United Nations, the Geneva Conventions and the International Court of Justice.
