    Let’s Be Humble, We Come From Him
    Sadia Dehlvi

    The 13th century Sufi master Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani of Baghdad said, “All the doors of God are crowded except one, the door of humility and humbleness.” Moses once asked Allah, “Oh my Lord! Who is the most deserving of your wrath and displeasure?” He said, “It is one whose heart is filled with arrogance, tongue abusive, eyes lustful, hands miserly and whose character is doubtful.”...

    Like Cold War: Pakistan Is Counting On China to Balance India-US Bonhomie
    Khaled Ahmed

    US President Donald Trump’s challenge to a “double-dealing” Pakistan has provoked commentators in the country to invoke the threat of a Cold War-like confrontation between America and China — with Pakistan safely operating on the Chinese side while India draws closer to the US. But Pakistan needs to be realistic. The 2008 Mumbai attack issue is still not resolved and Pakistan continues to prevent the UN from subjecting its main accused, Hafiz Saeed, to trial....

    The Terrorist Attack That Failed to Terrify
    Ben Judah

    The worst attacks are generally planned, coordinated, military-inspired operations by terrorist organizations that claim to represent Islam. These, and not something about London, are what inspire the copycats. The spike in attacks in recent years is a direct result of the Islamic State’s establishment of a military force in Syria and Iraq that has, by some estimates, been comparable in size to the British Army...

    Take Away Aung San Suu Kyi’s Nobel Peace Prize, She No Longer Deserves It
    George Monbiot

    This week, to my own astonishment, I found myself signing a petition for the revocation of her Nobel peace prize. I believe the Nobel committee should retain responsibility for the prizes it awards, and withdraw them if its laureates later violate the principles for which they were recognised. There are two cases in which this appears to be appropriate. One is Barack Obama, who, bafflingly, was given the prize before he was tested in office. His programme of drone strikes, which slaughtered large numbers of civilians, should disqualify him from this honour. The other is Aung San Suu Kyi....

    How Do Palestinians Define ‘Terrorism’?
    Jonathan Schanzer

    That means the clock is now ticking for the Palestinian Authority, which receives around $350 million from the U.S. each year. The Taylor Force Act wouldn’t block humanitarian or security aid, meaning U.S. funds wouldn’t be zeroed out, but our sources say the total could fall as low as $120 million, depending on how far Congress and the Trump administration want to go. ...

    Political Islamist Leader Erdogan’s Diplomatic Visit To India With A Doctorate From Jamia Would Not Go Down Well With The Democratic Ethos Of The Country As Well As The University
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Earlier, Jamia has fairly conferred the honorary degrees to Dalai Lama, Ban Ki-moon and Amartya Sen. These spiritual, social and intellectual dignitaries have richly contributed to the global peace activism, human rights protection and scientific temperament. They do inspire the university’s students and academicians to explore the greater potentials to uphold the universal human values. But what contribution has Erdogan rendered to the educational, social or other humanitarian pursuits? Evidently, the political Islamist leader does not fit into the list of the distinguished awardees of the Jamia....

    Here Is Why Donald Trump Has No Idea about Islamist Terrorism
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    In the run up to the presidency, Donald Trump, embraced a rhetoric about Muslims which put even his far right friends in Europe to shame. Calling Muslims as enemies, he told the Americans that ‘they hate us’ that ‘they’ want to overrun America and all this because there was some fundamental flaw in their religion. For some time, it looked as if Islam and Muslims became the other of America. This polarizing campaign helped him garner votes from even non republicans who were fed on a daily diet of Islamic takeover of Christian America.  The man who advocated a complete ban on Muslims entering America, today has done a complete u-turn and is now telling Muslims to dispel extremist teachings from within their societies. His speech in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia is ridden with confusion and only tells us about his ignorance of the problem that the world is confronting today in the name of Islamic terrorism.…

    Supreme Court's Question Is Relevant: How Come A Pre-Islamic Arabian Custom Is Fundamental To Islam In India?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    But the Islamic clergy, while boasting of their Qur’anic epithet of Ahl-e-Zikr, have cunningly preached the gravest misgiving on the Islamic viewpoint of Triple Talaq; that it is one of the fundamentals of the Islamic law enshrined in the Quran. A far more negative role they are playing now is that they are tarnishing the image of Islam and the egalitarian message of Quran by misleading the Muslim women who work with them...

    The Lynching of Mashal Khan Proves Pakistan is Dystopic
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    And yet the Prophet himself gave us a very different message. One of the stories about him is that he was daily abused by a woman when he used to preach the message of Islam. The Prophet never rebuked her but actually went to her house and inquired about her health when she fell ill. That message seems to have been lost on his followers. They want to do what the Prophet never taught. Perhaps this generation of Muslims understand Islam much better than the Prophet himself. Allah definitely warns all those who insult the Prophet, but then he goes on to say that He is the only one to judge them. But today, Muslims have themselves become the judge, the jury and the executioner in cases related to blasphemy...

    A Revolutionary Enterprise for Rejuvenating Indian Madrasas
    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    The early Muslims made no distinction between the religious and the secular – this was a concept introduced by the British during colonial rule. Muslim scholars  distinguished between the ‘transmitted’ and ‘rational’ sciences, the former corresponding to Qur’anic commentary, the science of Hadith, and Fiqh, while the latter referred to disciplines such as Arabic grammar, poetry, philosophy, medicine, and the like. Both types of knowledge were valued and taught at the madrasa and were a source of upward mobility, prestige, and employment. Before Mulla Nizam Uddin standardized the curriculum known as the Dars-i-Nizami…

    So What Is The Reason Behind The New AIMPLB Affidavit?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Now again, what authorities do the Qazis have in contemporary India? How are they to ensure that the marriage contract expressly forbids instant triple Talaq? Given the situation that Muslim women are at the receiving end, what if there is pressure on them not to put this component in the contract. How is the Qazi then supposed to behave and act? The simple fact is that Qazis have no authority today and by invoking the institution of the Qazis, the AIMPLB is telling us that they still live in a time when the institution of Qazi was relevant. And that precisely seems to be the problem. They are living in a time warp and refuse to wake from their slumber and see the light of the day. The world has changed while they slept all this while.....

    What is 'Progressive' Muslim Thought?
    Dr. Adis Duderija

    Quran and Sunna were progressive in approaching ethical and legal issues of that time by having a more ethical vision beyond what was considered as status quo and customary (Ma’ruf/ 'Urf) ! Progressive Islam wants to stay true to this vision. Ethical values like justice and fairness do not remain frozen in time. They, as collective human experience testifies, in principle are subject to change as God's creative powers have a direct bearing on our own collective reason and our collective ethico-moral compass.....

And it is another philosopher Mulla Sadra whom he considered Muhaqqiq and highly recommended on such questions as afterlife.  And who can ignore his respect for Iqbal, the sage of the East?....

    Why Patriot Tests are Designed to Fail Muslims
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    As a community, Muslims in India have always been burdened to prove their loyalty to the country. They are repeatedly asked to take tests of nationalism and patriotism in order to prove their love for the country. Whether it is cricket match against Pakistan or the matter of singing the national song, accusatory fingers have always been cast on Muslims, reminding them that as a community, they will always have to go through this test of loyalty.....

    Muslim Women Can Marry Outside the Faith
    Junaid Jahangir

    What is very important, and is stuck out in your conversation, is that you are challenged that your understanding of Islam, and what you’ve come to understand as being standards that you admire as a human being, are not being met by Muslim standards either demonstrated in your family, extended family or community. But what I can encourage you to do is to become more familiar with the Islamic faith and its diverse of opinions – for it is never been a monolithic faith – and come to understand that one has an array of opinions from different schools of Islamic theological thought from which to choose to follow, or utilize Ijtihad (individual thinking) in assessing your particular situation…..

    We Must Develop Ourselves as a Spiritual Personality: A Person Who Loves All Humankind

    Jesus Christ rightly teaches us that man cannot live by bread alone. It means that material things aren’t enough for man. Man needs spiritual food, too. I am a follower of Muhammad, and at the same time a follower of Jesus, too. The gist of Sufi teaching, according to my study, is Sulh-e Kul or love for all. It is the same teaching that we find in the New Testament....

    The Dogmatic Atheists
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The earliest philosophers were also believers. They believed in an afterlife, an immortal soul and in justice finding perfection in our afterlife. They took the moral principles from religion and the ample empirical evidence that was available from practicing these within religious beliefs, and discovered that these made immense practical sense. The moral principles from religion appeared perfectly logical in hindsight. They therefore used reason, and developed theories of ethics based on reason and pragmatism. We therefore have theories of Utilitarianism, Consequentialism etc in philosophy....

      For faith, in general, the effect is reverse, the further one moves from the centre, the stronger and purer it gets. Indeed, in Christianity the further one moved from the Vatican, in Rome, the more devout the people are, as is the case in Latin America and in the Philippines. This concept also applies to Islam, and thus the people of Pakistan, Malaysia and Indonesia are definitely very devout and pious in their Islam day in and day out, as a result.....
