If the Mughal emperors could connect East Africa to India, then American efforts should seek identical aims in state formation throughout the Indo-Pacific, for civil society remains the last bulwark against the vicious wiles of Islamism....

    Takfeer, Wala Wal Bara’a, Darul Islam vs. Darul Harb—Three Major Catalysts of the Jihadist Radicalization: Rebuttals from the Classical Islamic Sources
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    There is no room for "us versus them" mentality in Islam. All human beings are creatures of God and we therefore must show respect to each other. This implies a multi-racial, multi-religious society. Islam came as a Rahmah (Blessing) to the Universe. Qur’an shows Allah’s love for man as infinite and all-embracing: “And My Mercy embraces all things” (Surah Al-A`raf 7:156).

    Not a single creature is exempted from Allah’s bountiful grace and divine mercy. The beloved Prophet said, “When Allah created the creatures, He wrote in the Book, which is with Him over His Throne: “Verily, My Mercy prevailed over My Wrath.” (Al-Bukhari) He also said, “Allah has divided mercy into 100 parts, and He retained with Him 99 parts, and sent down to earth 1 part…

    There is also a new movement of atheists in countries such as Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, which takes the form of secret societies. A 2012 WIN/Gallup International poll showed that 5 percent of Saudis identified as atheists — more than in the United States — while 19 percent did not consider themselves religious, in a country that punishes unbelief with death. An average of 22 percent expressed doubts about religion elsewhere in the Middle East....

    The Quran, Islamic Theology, Philosophy And The Sciences - What Is God And How Do We Go About Trying To Know God Better? (Part 1)
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Science informs us that the world and time have a beginning. Science also informs us that what originates in time and at a point in time has a cause. Nothing happens by itself. There must be a cause therefore for the creation of the universe and this cause we call the Creator. Unless there is a cause for the creation of the Creator of this Universe, the Creator is the First Principle we call God. Every being and thing has a cause and every cause has its cause and if we go back in this series which cannot be infinite, we end at a cause that has no cause which is God who is uncaused and the cause of creation. If the world itself was uncaused, then the world itself would have been the first principle, and the atheists would have been right in rejecting the notion of a God who is among other things the Creator….

    The Quran, Islamic Theology, Philosophy and the Sciences – On Soul and the Creation of Man (Part 2)
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Without religion, there wouldn’t have been a civilization let alone the excellence man has achieved in the sciences and man would have been just another animal living the life it lived as a primitive. This fact however gets obscured because of the visible presence of the naïve fundamentalists who oppose reason and science. The atheists see religion with disdain as some appendage from the past, unable to acknowledge its contribution and relevance. Such intellectuals deserve being called ingrate rebels against God more than any other group of people, for they can surely ascertain the truth of a revealed Book such as the Quran. On the question of evolutionary biology, there is no need to doubt either Science or the Scriptures. The question is not as it is unfortunately posed “do you believe in evolutionary biology or do you believe in religion?....

    Some Muslim Intellectuals of This Era Cry Lies or Half-Truths against Islam Creating Doubts and Suspicions against It – Ignorantly or Fraudulently - God Knows Best
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    Scholars are free to hold any view but if they take to lies or half-truths to support their views, they do far greater harm to their community than any good. They become conspirators and traitors.  And as for any Muslim scholar who dreams of editing the Qur’an or dismissing it altogether, he must learn lesson from history. The Moghul Emperor Akbar the Great who styled himself a reformer of Islām - arriving almost 1,000 years after the Prophet Muḥammad, introduced a modified version of Islam, Din e Ilahi. He couldn’t make even a score of converts in his long life. Where do people like the present day proponents of a modified Qur’an stand...

    Before World War II, Nazism was an ideology expressed in “Mein Kampf.” Before 2 million Chinese died in the Cultural Revolution, ideas were written down in a “Little Red Book.” And in 1928 another ideology appeared, with the founding of the Muslim Brotherhood, which seeks a totalitarian system of government and forced implementation of Shariah law. This ideology fuels ISIS and al-Qaida, subjugates women, executes homosexuals, kills Christians and inspires some “home-grown” American Muslims to commit acts of terror....

    By definition the subscription to progressive Muslim thought also implies that the sacred scriptures cannot offer us humans an unequivocal, clearly accessible and once and for all valid understanding of God through the simple process of reading/interpretation. Instead, progressive Muslims’ consider the human interpreter and her subjectivities and contingencies as most significantly determinative of the process of interpretation envisaged as a never ending dynamic process that continually evolves with reason....

    Historicism or Historical Methodology Is Vital to the Evolution of Progressive Islamic Theology: A Contribution to the Ongoing NAI  Debate on the Possibility of Reformation within Islam
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    To put it simply, Historicism in Islamic studies connotes an intellectual approach for the contextualisation of the Qur’anic texts in order to produce accurate explanations. In other words, it implies that what happened in the past, should be discussed and elucidated in terms of when it happened. Even the early Islamic historians like Ibn Khaldun employed this scientific methodology and remarkably advanced it in his seminal work “Muqaddama”. He referred numerous Islamic traditions back to the pre-Islamic customs of what is known as “al-Arab al-Jahili” (Arab in the era of ignorance)……

    In today's increasingly global world, the stakes are higher than ever—for everyone. Societies that limit women's educational and employment opportunities and their political voice get stuck in a downward spiral. They are poorer, more fragile, have higher levels of corruption, and are more prone to extremism. To those opposed to reformist ideals, let us remind them of Iqbal’s assertion: “[t]he teaching of the Qur’an that life is a process of progressive creation necessitates that each generation, guided but unhampered by the work of its predecessors, should be permitted to solve its own problems.”...

    Put Every Effort First Into Establishing Peace—Peace At Any Cost
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

    This principle is taught in Islam, too. It was exemplified in the life of the Prophet Muhammad. For instance, in the case of the Hudaibiya Treaty, the Prophet agreed to the conditions set by his opponents, and in this way secured peace. The Quran refers this treaty as Itmam-e Naymat (48:2). This means that the treaty signed at Hudaibiya was a sign of completion of God’s favour to the Prophet. Why does God call the treaty Itmam-e Naymat? This is because now that peace had been established because of the treaty, it provided the opportunity to do other, constructive things, using peaceful methods....

    Quran is Not the Source of All Problems but It Must Be Brought within the Ambit of History
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    However, the reason that Hassan Radwan gives for historicizing the Quran is simplistic and problematic. Firstly, it is not true that one cannot beat the traditionalists in the game of selective quotation from Quranic passages supporting moderate and liberal voices. Scholars, both modern (like Amina Wadud) and traditional (like Fazlur Rahman) have shown how a different hermeneutical reading of the Quran is possible: one that is consistent with a modern and liberal worldview. It is true that in most of the Muslim countries, such interpretations have either remained marginal or have altogether failed....

    The Sufis: Islam’s Anti-Terrorists

    Sufi orders formed in the ninth and tenth centuries as spiritual movements to bypass the legalism of the Ulema and the worldliness and luxury of the caliphate. At a time when Islam was becoming dogmatic, claiming that Muhammad’s religion was the only true faith and that the Qur’an was the only valid scripture, Sufis saw God everywhere, even in pagan traditions. At a time when the Ulema had closed the gates of Ijtihad, regarding revelation as complete, Sufis sought new revelations from God. At a time when the Ulema preached a God of law, Sufis spoke of God as love....

    Islam’s Reform:  Can Passages of the Quran Be Cherry-Picked — To Embrace What Is Appealing and To Skirt around What Is Not? That Is the Question
    Javed Anand

    But now enters a British Muslim, Hassan Radwan. In an article recently published by the online portal New Age Islam, he makes an altogether radical prescription for salvaging Islam from “the hard-line literalists undermining the soul of a loving, universal creed”. According to him, “Liberal and progressive interpretations depend mostly on nuanced readings of the Quran and Sunna, or forcing new meanings out of them. But by playing the extremists’ game of interpreting the texts, we allow them a semblance of legitimacy. We also give them the opportunity to come back with theological workarounds”. So, what is to be done? Radwan’s answer: “We Muslims need to take the bold step of challenging the very idea that the Quran and Sunna are infallible.” But how can the Quran, the word of God, be fallible? Simple. “The Quran is not the speech of God”, he maintains, quoting several modern-day Muslim scholars as also quite a few from the early period of Islam in support. According to Radwan, once Muslims accept that the Quran is not the Word of God, they can “unashamedly cherry-pick” from among the Quranic verses, accepting the good ones and rejecting the bad. Like the Christian reformists did 500 years ago?...

    Refuting ISIS While Interpreting the Quranic Verse ‘Kill the Mushrikin Wherever You Find Them’
    Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    The fact that the biggest terrorists since the advent of Islam were the Kharijites, who used Islamic titles, appearances and mercilessly killed the rightly guided caliphs and Muslims, is also that ISIS as neo-Kharijites have adopted the same tactics to kill the modern-day Muslims and non-Muslims living under the peace-pact environment. These neo-Kharijites have shattered the true image of Islam, committed heinous crimes and distorted the historical fact of the rightly guided caliphate. In their mouthpiece “Rumiyah” magazine, they repeatedly misinterpret the war-related verses for terrorist propaganda and recruitment; it is, therefore, our responsibility as Muslims to correctly interpret those verses in a bid to thwart their ambitions....
