    What Is Kufr And Who Is A Kafir In The Quran? (Full and Revised Text of the New Age Islam Series on the Subject)
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The Qu’ran has been mined to understand how the words Kafir and kufr (kufr is what makes a kafir or what a kafir does) have been used. It turns out that Sunni theology has erred grievously in treating all non-Muslim as kafir because the Quran does not do so. In verses that deal with the temporal dimension or this World, the Quran uses the word in a faith-neutral way. For example, miserliness is a form of kufr which clearly is a characteristic independent of one’s faith. There are “Muslims” who are niggardly and there are non-Muslims who spend freely in charity. ...

    There is not a single verse in the entire Quran that directs the Muslims to treat people of other faiths with anything other than kindness and justice. The war is only against the Kafir among them for the exclusive Kufr of:

    Those who fight the Muslims for their faith and drive them out of their homes.

    Those who break their treaties and fight or aid other enemies of the Muslims

    There is no verse in the Quran that asks the Muslims to fight with the kafir for any other form of kufr such as: Blasphemy, ridicule, rejecting faith etc. Surah 109 Al-Kafirun is explicit about living in peace with the peaceful Kafirun and ends with “(109:6) To you be your Way/religion, and to me mine.

    Suicide Attacks By ISIS or Any Other Muslim Militants Are Brazenly Un-Islamic and Categorically Forbidden [Haram] Under All Circumstances: Evidence from the Quran and Hadith
    Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    Islam never justified suicide attacks for any reason, not even in any special circumstances, like a tactic of war. However, ISIS militants are practicing it indiscriminately. Though they forcibly try to justify it under their Wahhabi pretext as a war tactic, this act is strictly and categorically forbidden [haram] in Islam. The suicide bombers or attackers are the openly disobedient of Allah Almighty. According to numerous hadiths, they will reside in the Hell forever...

    The Heinous Crimes That ISIS Is Perpetrating Totally Opposed To Islam And Those Killed Fighting For ISIS May Earn Divine Wrath Instead Of Paradise And ‘Hurs’ – An SOS To All Mosque Imams
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    While ISIS does not command any sympathy among the Ulama and Imams of the world – with the exception of its own ideologues, they all share the global disgrace ISIS evokes for its claim to representing true Islam. There is also a growing misconception among the non-Muslims of the world that the Muslims’ claim of Islam being a religion of peace is a mere propaganda and a bluff.  The sad reality is ISIS is continuing to attract recruits, especially from among the new converts or those having no knowledge of the message of Islam, and those opposed to Islam are producing pamphlets with false information and quotations to directly implicate the Qur’an as the ideological fount of ISIS…..

    The woman tells her she has given birth twice and that both babies were stillborn. Now she is pregnant again. Her doctor has said the foetus is showing signs of severe complications and will probably die. The woman wants to know if Islam will permit her to have an abortion. After clarifying a few other details, Sheikha Naeema issues a fatwa. “If the foetus is severely ill and will not survive, you may have an abortion,” she tells the woman. “You must take advice from your physician, he will guide you. Religion does not conflict with medicine.”....

    The Ahadith That Distort The Message Of The Quran – Part Two
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    What about the Lakhs of Ahadith that were rejected by the compilers as unreliable? Did Imam Bukhari, Muslim, Dawood, Tirmidhi, Nasai and Ibn Maja insult the Prophet by rejecting hundreds of thousands of his reported sayings? If the answer is no, then there is no insult to the Prophet if anyone rejects every Hadith as unreliable. That is every person’s choice. Believing in the Ahadith is not an article of faith for a Muslim and indeed these Books were only compiled some 250 years after the death of the Prophet….

    ISIS/Takfiris Are Friends of Satan, the Enemies of Allah and His Messenger, Foremost In Shirk, Hypocrisy and Apostasy and No Muslim Must Support Them in Any Form or Fashion
    Dr. John Andrew Morrow (Imam Ilyas Islam, New Age Islam

    IS, ISIS, ISIL or Daesh is a terrorist, mercenary, army at the service of imperial forces. They do not speak for Islam or represent Islam in any shape or form. To describe such psychopaths as Sunnis is to insult the Sunnah. To describe Da‘ish as “Islamic” is an insult to Islam. The only terms that adequately describes the ideology of these demons is Takfiri, Wahhabi, Khariji, and Nasibi, Excommunicators, Wahhabis, Separatists, and Haters of the Household of the Prophet. While they call themselves Jihadists, they pervert the term jihad or sacred struggle. While they call themselves Salafi, followers of the pious predecessors, they are an offense to the true Salaf, the righteous Companions and their Followers......

    ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE AND PLURALISM
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    To wrap up this essay and put a seal of peace and pluralism on the Prophet’s mission we quote below the following verses that make it amply clear that the eventual goal was peace, moral uprightness (taqwa) and justice and not war, injustice and ‘Sword’: 

    “You who believe, be upright before God as witnesses to justice), and let not the hatred of any people prompt you to detract from justice. Deal justly: this is nearest to heedfulness (taqwa); and heed God. Surely God is Informed of what you do” (5:8).

    “... And let not the hatred of a people who (once) obstructed you from (entering the) Sacred House, lead you to be hostile. Therefore, help each other to virtue and uprightness (taqwa), and do not collaborate with each other in sin and enmity. Heed God, and (remember,) God is severe in punishment” (5:2).

    “It may be that God will bring about love between you and those of them you (now) regard as your enemies. (Remember,) God is Able (to do anything) and God is Most Forgiving and Merciful (60:7). God does not forbid you to be virtuous and just to those who did not fight you over religion, nor drove you from your homelands. Indeed, God loves the just (60:8). God only forbids you to befriend those who fought against you over religion, and expelled you from your homelands, and backed (others) in your expulsion; and whoever befriends them – it is they who are unjust” (60:9).

    The Qur’anic verses relating to all the major expeditions as captured in this work from Qur’anic allusions were specific to given contexts, and since the contexts cannot be recreated as much as the Prophet and his companions cannot be brought back to life, they are not of any direct relevance this day – and this must be true for all so-called ‘fighting verses’ of the Qur’an. Their presence in the Qur’an is essential to establish Islam as a religion of peace as this discourse aims at…..

    On Televangelist Zakir Naik: Don’t give in to pretenders who condemn Sufi followers as “grave worshippers”, says Sadia Dehlvi
    Sadia Dehlvi
    In the subcontinent, Islam is the legacy of the Sufis who gave us traditions of syncretism and communal harmony. By condemning Sufi followers as “grave worshippers”, Salafi and Wahhabi ideology-inspired speakers such as Zakir Naik reject an entire historical body of Islamic scholarship, jurisprudence and almost 80 per cent of Islamic literature. Naik is on record saying, “If Osama bin Laden is terrorising America or the enemies of Islam, every Muslim should become a terrorist.” Excerpts of this video are circulating on the internet, damaging the already wounded perception of Islam and its followers. – Sadia Dehlvi

What else do they expect when in the 21st century, they want to implement an early medieval law?

    Islamic Ideology

    There isn’t a subject on which the Ahadith do not mislead vis-à-vis the clear message of the Quran whether it is war, divorce, female witnessing, inheritance, or even the hajj. In this article, we discuss one Hadith which is causing the greatest damage and is truly satanic in its scope. Consider the following Hadith:

    The Tafseer of Ibn Kathir on verses 2:191 to 193 and 8:36 to 8:38 quotes a Hadith collected in the two Sahihs in which the Prophet (pbuh) is alleged to have said:

    «أُمِرْتُ أَنْ أُقَاتِلَ النَّاسَ، حَتَّى يَقُولُوا: لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ، فَإِذَا قَالُوهَا عَصَمُوا مِنِّي دِمَاءَهُمْ وَأَمْوَالَهُمْ، إِلَّا بِحَقِّهَا، وَحِسَابُهُمْ عَلَى اللهِ عَزَّ وَجَل»

    (I was commanded to fight against the people until they proclaim, `There is no deity worthy of worship except Allah.' If and when they say it, they will preserve their blood and wealth from me, except for its right (Islamic penal code), and their reckoning is with Allah, the Exalted and Most Honoured.)"...
