    The Enlightening Commentary on the War Related Quranic Verses- Part 3 on 4:89
    Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    In today’s context, when Muslims and non-Muslims including hypocrites are living peacefully, these verses (4:88-90) can’t be applied. It is not an individual’s duty to decide as to who are hypocrites. In the case of the early period of Islam, when the Muslims who were holy companions [Sahaba] were not all sure as to who were then hypocrites and who were not, how come today’s common Muslims categorically call others ‘hypocrites’? Even if we hear some of today’s scholars calling someone ‘hypocrite’, how can one make justification for killing him, while he is living in the state of peace or peace-treaty?...

    In assessing the increasingly active employment of women in all sorts of military engagements, it shouldn’t be disregarded that terrorist ideologists are trying to take advantage of the fact that most Muslims are terrified by the prospect of being murdered by a women. After all, according to Muslim believes, a man who fell by the hand of a woman will not get 72 virgins in paradise. By the way, for the same exact reason Tel-Aviv enlists women in its armed forces in an attempt to destroy the morale of those Muslim armies that are fighting its troops....

    Like other European converts, Pedersen can be thought of as a living bridge between Islam and Europe. He remains proud of his Danish identity and feels it is fully compatible with Islam, “for me, being a Dane and being a Muslim is just expressing Islam in a Danish way of living.” As a Dane, Pedersen feels particularly connected to his Viking roots. He showed us the artwork of his daughter, who painted a calligraphy of the Arabic Bismillah, ar-Rahman, ar-Rahim in the shape of a Viking ship....

However, the Holy Prophet corrected this for the people and said: “The sun and the moon are two signs among the signs of Allah. They do not eclipse because of someone’s death or life. So when you see them, invoke Allah and pray till the eclipse is clear.”....

    India Prepares For Judicial Verdict on Triple Talaq

    Several scholastic understandings of divorce within Islam do not support the notion of triple talaq in its current form and it is banned or not practiced in many Muslim countries, including Algeria, Tunisia, Malaysia, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Tunisia, Algeria, Iraq, Indonesia and Bangladesh. In Islam, marriage is a solemn contract (Meesaaqan Ghaleeza) and both parties have equal rights to revoke this covenant in accordance with Quranic procedure if the other party breaches it….

    He recites plenty of verses from the Holy Quran, which could be scientific. The verses are then compared to myriad scientific theories from several disciplines for example: Medicine, Astronomy, Geology etc. But in the first place, why does Zakir Naik require scientific evidence to prove that Quran is a book of God or that it was never fabricated or altered for centuries?  Does faith require scientific validity? Zakir Naik and his acolytes should read Karl Popper’s Science as Falsification. It is a bizarre idea to use scientific principle to justify religion.…..

On the right, it was like, there are a lot of problematic things in Islamic scripture, so everyone who is Muslim must be banned, or profiled, or demonized. Both sides weren't making that distinction between challenging ideas, which has historically moved societies forward, and demonizing human beings, which only rip societies apart....

    Confusion Worse Confounded: Good That Instant Triple Talaq Struck Down, but Supreme Court Could Have Simply Reiterated Its Own Sensible Ruling In Shamim Ara Case
    Tahir Mahmood

    Coming to the final order of the court based on the majority view, one may ask what will be the effect of “setting aside” the practice of triple Talaq? Will it be a nullity and effect no divorce at all, or will it effect a single Talaq with a cooling off period of about three months during which the man can revoke it and, failing that, the parties can directly remarry (without the so-called Halala)? A clue is found in Kurian Joseph’s judgment which asserts that the decisive law in India is as set out in Shamim Ara to the effect that a Talaq to be legally recognised must have been pronounced in a step-by-step compliance with the true Islamic procedure....

    The Meaning of the Quran Resonates With the Aims of Progressive Islam
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Islamic Shariat was influenced by the practical need to continue with the well-established laws in the conquered lands.  The Ahadith were compiled in the 9th century by At-Tirmidhi (Uzbek died 892), Imam Bukhari – (Uzbek died 870), Abu-Dawud (Persian died 889), Ibn Majah (Persian died 887), Al-Nasai (Persian died 915), Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj (Persian died 875), Ibn Hanbal (Arab died 855). The books of the first six compilers form part of the Kutub Al-Sittah or the six books. The fact that all the six major compilers were contemporaries in the era of Islam’s Golden period under the Abbasid dynasty could be because the compilation may have been a political project to bend Islam to the political compulsions of the Caliph. The Ahadith contradict the Quran on every subject and if these alleged sayings of the Prophet (pbuh) are authentic, then it would appear that the Prophet spent all his life preaching against the message of the Quran!

    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….
