    Transition to local languages has not been easy for other religions too. A certain holiness does attach itself to some languages. Vedic Sanskrit, for instance, is sacred for Hindus, Hebrew for Jews. Christianity’s struggle to retain the Bible in Latin and Greek was intense and bloody, with a powerful Church putting up a stiff resistance. Eventually, the Bible did speak to the people in their language. The Ulema in India refuse to accept as Quran an Urdu or English translation of the holy book....

    The equitable division of the wealth of society and bounty of the earth between all people, regardless of their social station, through the instrument of charity, is seen not just as an act of piety but a cardinal   obligation for Muslims .Ramadan is the focal point of philanthropy: during this month, Islam’s obligation to give to the poor intensifies. Those who miss the daily fast, for example, must feed a poor person. The idea that helping others is part of a meaningful life has been around for thousands of years.  They are taught to live as trustees of God’s blessings....

    The beauty of India’s secularism lies in its taking a completely different course from them. India’s secularism means equal treatment of all religions by the state. With the 42nd Amendment of the Constitution of India enacted in 1976, the Preamble to the Constitution asserted that India is a secular nation. Though neither the constitution of India nor its laws define the relationship between religion and state, India recognizes each and every religion and ensures to give them equal respect. The citizens of India are allowed to enjoy their respective religions such as Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism etc. with full freedom....

    At the moment of birth, a baby is genetically programmed to feel and express their feelings in response to the stimuli, both internal and external, that the baby registers. For example, as soon after birth as a baby feels hungry, they will signal that need, usually by crying or screaming. An attentive parent (or other suitable adult) will usually respond to this need by feeding the baby and the baby will express their satisfaction with this outcome, perhaps with a facial expression, in a way that most aware parents and adults will have no difficulty identifying….

    “I spend no time working for conversions. I love the poor and respect Islam. So does God. I believe that Muslims can be, and are saved within Islam. So I make no effort to convince Muslims to profess Christianity. What I do is to try to live a Christian life in the midst of Muslims...We trust that Allah is using us to move hearts towards Him. I haven’t yet met a Muslim who really wants to hear a Christian’s views on Jesus (They have their own idea about Jesus). But I have met hundreds who appreciate very much seeing someone who follows Jesus. Therefore, that’s what I spend my time trying to be—a follower of Jesus.”...

    But whether it is dubbed as 'religious terrorism', 'Islamic' or 'Islamist’, or even couched in neutral terms—such as Counter-Radicalization or Countering Violent Extremism (CVE), the question is: why most academic exercises on this subject have eroded other faith-based acts of violence or religious persecutions? Why they are focused exclusively on the study of violence in Islam? ....

    It is an open sin to hurt the believers who have not done anything wrong, according to the holy Quran.

    Some of the crucial issues that the book deals with are: how faith in and commitment to a particular religion and witnessing to it among others can go along with respect for other religions and their adherents; the contemporary importance of interfaith and inter-community bridge-building; varied purposes and forms of interfaith dialogue and collaboration; religion as a means for promoting peace, as opposed to its misuse as a vehicle for fomenting conflict; theological arguments to counter radicalism in the name of religion;  the need for rethinking religion in a contextually-relevant and spiritually-elevating manner....

    Muslim Jurists Are Wrong, Husbands Cannot Beat Wives

    We, Muslims, must ask “Does anyone know a woman who spot ‘beauty and dignity’ in spousal brutality?”  Probably, Women suffering from the abnormal mental condition called masochism may find “beauty and dignity” in it.  There is no way to unmask the “beauty or dignity” in the jurists’ license of spousal abuse hinging on the verse.  There is not one incident in the life of Prophet (s) when he beat or treated disrespectfully any of his wives.  And if the Muslim’s claim of Islam being a liberator of women ought to be valid, Muslims must reject the jurists’ sanction of shameful act of wife beating by husbands.....

    Their teachings might have been distorted over time but indeed they belong to the category of revealed religions. The Quran gives testimony to this fact. Different religions had different ways of fasting. In some religions, ways of fasting were distorted and were directed towards deities and false gods but the presence of ritual of fasting in them hint towards the fact that originally they were followers of prophets of God and revealed religions....

    Islam and Spiritualism

    Islam has a beautiful word to describe this war against man’s carnal instincts. It is called jihad. In fact Islam repeatedly emphasizes it and calls it the ‘greater jihad’, The "greater struggle" is the personal one: the struggle to resist temptation, combat one's own evil traits and imperfections, and become a better person in God's sight.  the King James Bible speaks of it as seeking 'The Kingdom of God' and the Hindu spiritual classic Bhagavad Gita represents it in the battle of Kurukshetra....

    Given that the decision has been taken to cooperate and help the peace-loving Muslims observe Ramzan—the 30-day-long festival—in a peaceful environment, it should be welcomed as a great bonhomie. Now, it is incumbent on the Kashmiri Muslims to segregate the forces that bring a bad name to Islam by resorting to mindless militancy and violence. Thus, the trust deficit between New Delhi and Kashmir which has greatly widened for decades can be minimized now.....

    Rebuttal to Zakir Musa’s False Premise of Pitching Democracy and Secularism against Islam
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Pitching democracy or secularism against Islam is the key jihadist narrative that has been flogged off by the false ideologues of Islam—from Zawahiri to Zakir. But on the contrary, there is substantial evidence in the Quran and Sunnah (the Prophetic traditions) to make it possible for us to adopt both democracy and secularism as compatible to Islamic principles. It is sufficient to quote these two verses of the Qur’an: “Those who respond to their Lord and attend to their prayers; who conduct their affairs by mutual consultation and spend out of what We have provided for them” (42:38).....

    The Last Prophet—the Paragon of Mercy in the Quranic Light

    It should be remembered that Allah Almighty has called Himself ‘Lord of the worlds’, while for the holy Prophet (peace be upon him), He has used ‘Mercy for all worlds’. This tells us that he whose Lord is Allah Almighty, the Prophet is mercy for him. Thus, his mercy is absolute, complete, and in its entirety. It includes everything and it is for everything.….

    Defeating Islamism and Jihadism: Evolve a New Theology of Peace, Pluralism and Gender justice, Sultan Shahin asks Muslim States at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    A War on Terror has been raging for 17 years now but we are no closer to defeating Islamist terror. Jihadism continues to attract Muslim youth. This is because the world has not paid enough attention to the ideology of Islamism and Jihadism.

    Mainstream Muslims have considered Islam a spiritual path to salvation, one of the many. Islam aims at reforming society for a peaceful, harmonious, pluralist existence. However, due to certain historical factors, the theology and jurisprudence of Islam that evolved in the 8th and 9th centuries (CE), present Islam as a political, totalitarian ideology of supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance and gender discrimination. It is this theology of violence, exclusivism and world-domination that is taught in madrasas and sustains Islamism. But despite the Islamist violence against peaceful Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the community is still not focussed on the need for evolving a counternarrative of Islam.

     It is imperative that Muslim countries that have signed the UN Charter look into the issue urgently and work towards developing a new theology of peace, pluralism and gender justice. While several countries like Morocco and now Saudi Arabia appear to be moving in this direction, the one country that has made a solid contribution is Turkey. In a decade-long exercise 100 Turkish scholars have managed to limit the number of authentic ahadith to just 1600, out of over 10,000, and provide each hadith with context and suitable interpretation. This book of authentic Hadith has been provided to all mosques in Turkey but I hope it is made available to the global Muslim community in their own languages as soon as possible.

    Allama Iqbal, a poet-philosopher of the South Asian sub-continent had called for the reconstruction of religious thought in Islam almost a hundred years ago. Let us at least start working on it now....
