Islamic Society

Maulanas and clerics are not leaders here; instead, youth and home-makers are. These are not “Muslim” mobilisations as earlier seen against Salman Rushdie, triple talaq or Taslima Nasrin. Instead, this new inclusive movement is one where Bhim Army’s Chandrashekhar Azad — and not the Shahi Imam — has addressed crowds at Jama Masjid....

Interestingly out of the two different displays of “Islamic conduct” what was being supposed has been proved wrong. The Jihadist ideology was trying to brainwash Muslims to fight ‘Jihad’ for their religion and eliminate the “Kufr-system” of democracy. But the protesting Muslims have rejected the jihadist ideology, exclusion and supremacism. Instead they have proven with their peaceful protests that they will die remaining, though as a minority part of the Indian democracy, but will never walk on the path of violence, nor on the path that leads to ‘detention centres’....

How remarkable then that a young non Arab woman from the West should tell us what Islam is, however much she was misguided to Arabinise it – innocently, with couple of Arabic words; JazaakAllah?...

Ultimately, it is up to the 1.8 billion Muslims in the world to do some soul-searching and honestly decide if they are “living” Islam as believers should or “wearing” Islam as cultural Muslims do....

 

But what is unique about Islam is that while other religious movements, particularly Christianity, got over their early violent origins, it continued to move on and update its precepts within the ambit of Holy Quran. There has been no Islamic equivalent of Enlightenment and Renaissance, and the true Islamic mindset remains a torch bearer with historical progress, and therefore with modern times...

The RTS fiasco and unsigned Form 45 in such a large number of polling stations on the Election Day raised serious questions about the integrity of 2018 election. We are currently living through an era when democracy is probably in the weakest state.”...

 

In recent years, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, a notable Islamic scholar from North America, has gained global prominence by supporting efforts by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to deal with the fallout of the Arab revolutions. The UAE is a Middle Eastern autocracy that has been the chief strategist behind quelling the Arab revolutionary aspiration for accountable government in the region....

When Geography, History, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry etc were drawn out from madrasa system, there remained very few subjects to be taught in madrasas. So, such subjects that had less or no use in practical affairs of Muslims were included in madrasa curriculum. The opinions and personal deductions of ulema were made a part of Islamic Shariah and a parallel theology came into being....

The Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent and the Islamic State provide varying degrees of external inspiration and promote radicalization that is riding in on the latest wave of Arabisation, making the most of shambolic governance and vast inequalities.....

For decades, social scientists studying Islam discussed whether this second biggest religion of the world would go through the major transformation that the biggest one, Christianity, went through: secularization. Would Islam also lose its hegemony over public life, to become a mere one among various voices, not the dominant one, in Muslim societies?...

As a discipline of knowledge, Islamic economy was never discussed in classical Islamic sources. The classical sources of Islam referred to economics as norms, behaviours, lifestyle and institutions, but not as a science....

The new year—2020—is around the corner. One of the resolutions with which Muslims in general and Indian Muslims in particular can start the New Year is: Rethink the Islamic postulates in the light of the 21st century’s changing dynamics, the key objective behind the formation of this forum as a New Age Islam movement....

The UAE, home to more than 200 nationalities and a multi-religious expatriate community that outnumbers the population of Emirati nationals, is viewed as a beacon of tolerance and peaceful coexistence for millions of people in the Middle East...

The issues that should be taboo and where Muslims should be most sensitive are neglected and accepted as normal but regarding the issues that can be described as personal are put up for public scrutiny and judgment. This dichotomy is hurting the real message of Islam with Muslims indulging in the worst form of hypocrisy….

In the absence of any official documentation to shed light on the origins of the manuscript, the most common account is the one that has been orally passed on from the Kurdish villagers' distant ancestors. It is a well-structured story with mythological and miraculous elements and has remained unaltered over the centuries....

 

Nevertheless, there is also significant evidence that indicates that most Indonesian Muslims are “cultural Muslims” rather than believers in Islam. The term “cultural Muslim” refers to a person who adopts a number of Islamic traditions in his life but lacks Iman (faith), Islam’s fundamental value....

The most dangerous aspect of democracy is the perception of its existence; for people to think that they have it. They enjoy the right to elect their leaders and indulge in critique with their right to free speech....

 

“It’s the same new world Americans will be facing in the coming decades. It’s no different for a 30-year-old in Ohio than it is for a 30-year-old in Riyadh or Abha.”…

An International Conference titled, “The Nation-State, Territorial Conflict and Peace” was organized by Asian Muslim Action Network (AMAN) on 9-10 November, 2019 at Bangkok, Thailand. I was also invited as a panellist in one of its sessions. Time and again it was emphasized by scholars of the subcontinent that in Asia Nation-States have been created at the end of colonialism. So this Western import (Nation-State) is creating numerous problems for the inhabitants. The partition of the Indian subcontinent is still a wound that bleeds different communities....

 

Saudi Arabia has taken a step in this direction, recognising that this is the way to the future. One can only hope that Pakistanis, who so often take directions from the kingdom, will do the same....

 

Though most religious truths claim to be above time and history, they do manifest themselves through philosophical reflection, asceticism, personal psyche, dance, architecture, rituals, poetry, war, meditation, music and many other ways....

“Today, 130 million girls still do not have access to schooling,” Bhatia said. “Twelve million are married annually before the age of 18, and only 25 percent of the world’s parliamentarians are women.”…

Dr Shaz observes that after the demolition of Babri mosque in 1992 the Muslim leadership was left with no work so All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) jumped the bandwagon and through Babri issue the failed leadership found a new refugee. He calls this leadership as Kaapu who just work to intimidate Muslim masses from an unknown, perceived or constructed fear of Hindus or government onslaught....

 

Hundreds of singers have rendered it in genres ranging from Qawwali to film songs. It is believed to have been originally written by Amir Khusro in the 13th century and then added to by Bulleh Shah in the 17th century....

 

“Though polygamy is not prohibited in the Quran, if justice between the wives is not observed, it is advisable to remain monogamous.” Iranian women reacted with fury...
