    Malaysia is often put forward as a rare example of tolerance and democracy among countries with a Muslim majority.

How much this changes depends on the good faith and efficiency of the new government....

    However, nowhere in the world can these types of attacks be indefinitely prevented, unless the group in question surrender. Terror can strike anywhere. Sadly, the streets of London, Paris and New York, nations whose security capacities outstrip that of my nation, bear testimony to this truth. In Nigeria, we remain vigilant to intercept and prevent these assaults. But a final guarantor of peace will be Boko Haram's formal renunciation of violence in both speech and deed....

The phrase, often repeated in anger or haste, is clever, but it ignores political realities. We do not deserve the government we get if the government we get is the consequence of fear and uncertainty, poverty, weakened democratic institutions, systematic racism, gerrymandering and a system stacked in favour of those in power....

    Why the AIMPLB Refuses to Learn Any Lessons
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Despite the SC verdict, the AIMPLB still clings to its view that though triple talaq is sinful but yet it is valid in the eyes of Islamic law. None other than Mahmood Madani endorsed such a view soon after the verdict. Thus it is clear that the AIMPLB does not take even the Supreme Court and its decision seriously and opens itself to the charge that actually it does not believe in India’s constitutional democracy. Had there been a different political climate, the AIMPLB would surely have filed for a review petition. They have themselves argued that since the judge has changed, filing a review petition might throw up other practices like polygamy, nikah halala, etc. into the limelight and they fear that there might be another adverse ruling for them….

    Darul Uloom Deoband Against The ‘Erroneous’ Thoughts Of The Tablighi Jama’at: A Critical Analysis Of The Key Allegations In The Deoband’s Fatwa Against The TJ
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Of late, Darul Uloom Deoband issued a strongly-worded fatwa declaring the Tablighi Jama’at "misguided" and the “preacher of perverted views". Deoband seminary has also urged the current chief of the Tablighi Jama’at, Maulvi Sa'ad Kandhalvi to ‘repent in the court of God’. Accusing him of ‘an ideological perversion, misinterpretation of Islamic texts and desecration of Prophethood’, the fatwa pronounced by the Deoband clergy has stated: “It is our religious duty to warn Muslims particularly those with the Tablighi jam ‘at that Maulvi Sa'ad Kandhalvi, the current chief of the Jama’at, is misinterpreting Quran and Hadith”. ....

    Reflections on Qur'anic message - Part-13: Broader Dimension of Zakah - ‘Purifying ‘One’s Thoughts by Dispelling Defilements of Mind
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    Human mind is constantly stalked by evil thoughts and there is a perpetual tug of war between depravity (Fujurah) and moral uprightness (Taqwa) in man’s sub-conscious mind (Nafs) (91:8, Reflection 7). The depravity of mind can trigger a whole series of mental defilements such as anger, jealousy, greed, arrogance, hatred and contempt of others, cruelty, vengeance, and other negativities, and disturb the equanimity of mind and keep it locked in futile thoughts with adverse impacts on personal, social and family life and in the overall well-being of the community….

The Qur’an also refers to them as Nafs al Ammara, (12:53) - the Nafs that draws man to evil, and Nafs al Lawwama, (75:2) – the Nafs that restrains him from evil.....

    The War Within Islam

    Why are Islamic countries not coming forward to take Rohingyas? Are Human Rights for Muslims only?
    In a recent debate on Times Now (Rohingya Debate, 9/9/17), New Age Islam founder-editor, Mr. Sultan Shahin posed a pertinent question to the Muslim panellists: why do Indian Muslim leaders and ulema remain silent onlookers when human rights of religious minorities are violated egregiously in so-called Islamic countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other parts of the Muslim world? Thousands of Hindu girls are, for instance, he pointed out, abducted, forcibly converted to Islam and raped in the name of nikah with their abductors every year. Why no outrage among Indian Muslims who keep, rightly, protesting vigilante killings and other persecutions of Muslims in India and elsewhere. He reminded the Muslim leaders on the panel, that Huqooqul ibad (rights of the creations of God, and just humans, but even animals and plants) is a sacred value in Islam. Have we forgotten this, he asked forcefully.

    We welcome the fact that each one of the three separate judgments reflecting the views of all the 5 members on the constitutional bench have made it clear that the verdicts are concerned only with the practice of instant triple Talaq (“Talaq, Talaq, Talaq”).  The verdict does not in any way interfere with other forms of Talaq – Talaq Ahsan and Talaq Hasan -- which are based on reasonable grounds for separation, provide for a 3-month “cooling period” and stipulate genuine attempts at reconciliation. ....

    Reflections on Qur'anic Message - Part-8: Universal Notion of Taqwa in the Qur’an – A Level Playing Field Of Self (Nafs) - Dictated Moral Imperative for All Humanity
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    Ironically, most Muslims argue that those who are regular in prayer and spend in charity (2:3) are the Muttaqin and will receive the guidance of the Qur’an (2:2). Such an interpretation shifts emphasis from Taqwa to prayer and charity and transforms the din of Islam from one that is designed to promote Taqwa to one that is devoted to prayer and charity (2:4). The Qur’an clarifies the primary role of Taqwa in the concluding verse of the passage (2:5):“the Muttaqin are on true guidance from God.” Across it text, the Qur’an repeatedly declares: it is “guidance and counsel for the Muttaqin” (3:138); it is “counsel for the Muttaqin” (24:34)….

    The Triple Talaq Case: The Unjust Muslim Men and Their Unjust Leaders
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    When a people and their leadership become iniquitous (Zalim), Allah tests them with a case that exposes the extreme degree of their depravity, before visiting His wrath on them. The Shah Bano case was just such a case....

    The case has shown that the AIMPLB and the Ulema have not learnt any lesson from the Shah Bano case. The practice of TT is admitted being a Bidat or innovation and against the Shariat of the Quran and distasteful and yet our Ulema are not ready to ban it on their own although Muslim women and their organizations have been demanding it. Are they waiting for some more of Allah’s wrath to be visited on the Muslims? Do they not see the writing on the wall that unless they change and reform to render justice to their own women, they will be wiped out?...

    The teaching of the religion or Allah’s Deen is through revelation of the Book to the Messengers of God or the prophets. The revelations are connected with the different phases in the prophetic mission and incidents. It was also therefore experiential learning for the prophet and the people of his times. The teaching is also by way of the stories of the previous prophets and their people. The prophet is also cited as the best model to follow since he epitomizes the Book in his words and deeds in the matter of following the religion as detailed in the Scriptures or revelations. ...

    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    There are therefore two types of verses – Muhkamat verses that use precise words in which we should take the literal meaning of the words and the Mutashaabihat verses that use a “tashabaha” or similitude and the similitude is not the reality itself but gives an approximate idea using what is familiar, to convey what is beyond our comprehension. While the word used is a similitude, the meaning of the verse itself is clear and never ambiguous.

    Simply, designate the child so killed as an object of sacrifice, and close to the religious sacrifice external to the precinct of Hajj. What is more, honour the child as the martyr “Shaheed” for the politician’s imperatives! Thus many birds are killed with one stone. The politician gains a symbol for his cause, the child is elevated as Jannati entitled to enter paradise and the parents raised to the exalted position of – however very reluctantly and heartbroken though – to apostolic status of Ibrahim the Haneef, the apostle who willingly (almost) sacrificed his son and in whose name this festival is celebrated....

    'Make Revolutionary Changes in the Islamic Theology of Consensus to Fight Jihadism': Sultan Shahin Asks Muslim Nations at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Sixteen years after 9/11, the issue of Jihadi terrorism has become even more complex and widespread.

    First, though Jihadism is a violent offshoot of Wahhabism and Salafism, the international community has allowed the fountainhead of Wahhabi/Salafi ideology to continue to spend tens of billions of dollars to Wahhabise the world Muslim community.

    Second, we recently saw with horror, but without any protest from the international community, the sight of a UN-designated terrorist, with a ten-million-dollar bounty on his head, launch a political party and nominate another US-designated terrorist to contest democratic elections in Pakistan. Apparently, some countries can ignore UN directives with impunity.

    Third, the Muslim community has failed to grasp that Jihadism spread so rapidly around the world because at its core it is not very different from the theology of consensus that informs the religious beliefs and practices of all Muslim sects. That is why Jihadis are not impressed when we Muslims either proclaim that Islam is a religion of peace and pluralism or when we try to wash our hands off Jihadism by claiming that it has nothing to do with Islam. If we Muslims want to live as honourable citizens in the 21st century’s globalised world, we must rethink our consensus theology in all its dimensions and make revolutionary changes to bring it in line with the needs of present times....
