    The Prophets and the Feminine Power
    Saimma Dyer

    As I reflected on the importance of women in Prophethood I realised that Muhammad is not unique in his respect for women. Jesus also had important women in his life, most especially the much revered Mother Mary. Dedicated from birth to God and raised in a temple, Mary’s strength of devotion led to her receiving the spirit of God in the form of her son, Jesus. She bore the malicious gossip around her immaculate conception, raised her son in the service of God and helped in his ministry.  Catholicism’s veneration of Mary is perhaps one of its most attractive aspects, and many Muslims acknowledge Mary as a prophet in her own right...

Today, unfortunately, these teachings can mostly be found in Muslim societies in their violation.

And we just abandon those of our relatives who are economically unfortunate. There are three reasons for this sad situation....

    The War Within Islam

    It is very important to underline this, because an increasingly high number of people now take the manipulations as truth, radicalizing themselves, embracing jihad, and becoming fascinated and indoctrinated by terrorist propaganda that promises salvation of the soul and access to paradise to those who embrace the “true way” or the “true Islam”. This makes it crucial to understand what takfir is and how the concepts of takfir and jihad are used by the terrorist groups, not only to better comprehend how they justify their existence and their bloodshed, but also, above all, in fact, to improve strategies of disengagement and deradicalisation....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    An extreme Islamist group banned in more than a dozen countries is using children as young as 13 to peddle books supporting suicide bombing and jihad in Britain. Last night the Government’s new anti-extremism tsar Sara Khan told of her fears that the ‘Islamist extremists’ were recruiting children and students to help spread ‘supremacist ideology’. Terrorism experts also called on the Government to ban the group for ‘radicalising children’ and spreading the ideology of Islamic State ‘into the heart of England’...

But when it comes to religious liberty for Americans, there’s a disturbing trend that has drawn much less attention. In recent years, state lawmakers, lawyers and influential social commentators have been making the case that Muslims are not protected by the First Amendment. Why? Because, they argue, Islam is not a religion. This once seemed like an absurd fringe argument. But it has gained momentum...

    Islamic Ideology

    … those who blasted the Peshawar church in the name of Islam did not seem to care in the least for these clearly established Islamic codes. One might add, as the Quran very aptly puts it, that what they are engaged in is no form of Islamic jihad whatsoever. In fact, it is its very opposite – what in Islam is called Fasad fil-Ardh (corruption in the land), which is a terrible abomination in the eyes of God……

    Islamic Ideology

    The holy Quran says to the Muslim Ummah:

    "So have Taqwa (fear and obedience) of Allah and reconcile the differences between yourselves."[Al-Qur'an 8:1]

    "Indeed the Believers are but brothers. Therefore reconcile the differences between your brothers, and fear Allah so that you may receive mercy." [Al-Qur'an 49:10]

    "When two parties of the Believers fight each other, then make reconciliation between them." [Al-Qur'an 49:9]

    “Most of their discussions do not contain any good, except of the one who enjoins charity or goodness or peace-making among people; whoever does that to seek the pleasure of Allah – We shall soon give him a great reward” (Surah Nisa: 114).....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

     Those having insight know that Muslims are not given this directive of jihad in their individual capacity; they are addressed in their collective capacity regarding this directive. They are not individually addressed in the verses of jihad, which occur in the Qur’an. Thus in this matter only the collectivity has the right to launch any such armed offensive. No individual or group of Muslims has the right to take this decision on their behalf. It is for this reason that the Prophet (PBUH) is reported to have said: “A Muslim ruler is a shield; war can only be waged under him.” Even a little deliberation is enough for a person to conclude whether the Taliban are following this principle or blatantly violating it……

    Islamic Sharia Laws

    Based on individual cases, punishments could include stoning to death for adultery, severing of limbs for theft, and flogging for violations ranging from abortion to alcohol consumption, according to a copy of the code. The code however applies only to Muslims…….

Plus important encore, ils ont besoin de se voir non pas simplement comme "musulmans", mais comme des individus imprégnés de moyens et d'entreprise, qui ont le choix de mener la vie qu'ils veulent et la responsabilité de laisser les autres faire de même.…..

    Debating Islam

    Candidly speaking, I was dumbfounded to read the comments of so many pertaining to Maulana Wahiddudin’s article titled, “Muslim Separatism is Un-Islamic. The spirit of Maulana’s message was to enlighten us about how the Muslims of modern days have drifted towards “Identity Conscious” ways of living which has helped to trigger the defeatist mentality. Maulana Saheb has correctly pointed out that such an unnatural identity-consciousness has produced “ghetto country, colony, institutions and society.

     I say “GHETTO THINKING” is what we the Muslims are skilfully applying in many of the Islamic forums across the world. This particular on-going discourse on New Age Islam has pretty much gone out of context. Muslim minds are now very deeply entrenched into focusing only on the categorised versions of Hadiths: The Sahih or Genuine; the Hasan or the Fair; and the Da’if or the Weak.

    Islamic Ideology

    Enjoining people to do good and forbidding them from evil (Amr bil Maaroof, Nahi anil Munkir) is a doctrine mentioned in the Quran a few times. Wahhabism associates it with use of force, coercion and violence in society. The words ‘Amr’ and ‘Nahi’ have a variety of meanings but they are beyond every notion of aggression. .... In recent times, this doctrine has been misused to provide the pretext for allowing violence being inflicted on innocents in the name of establishing Islamic law (Sharia). The perpetrators of such crimes, the extremist Talibani-Wahhabi ideologues who the following exegetic analysis refers to, are themselves the evil doers who should be forbidden from their evil practices....

    Defeating Islamism and Jihadism: Evolve a New Theology of Peace, Pluralism and Gender justice, Sultan Shahin asks Muslim States at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    A War on Terror has been raging for 17 years now but we are no closer to defeating Islamist terror. Jihadism continues to attract Muslim youth. This is because the world has not paid enough attention to the ideology of Islamism and Jihadism.

    Mainstream Muslims have considered Islam a spiritual path to salvation, one of the many. Islam aims at reforming society for a peaceful, harmonious, pluralist existence. However, due to certain historical factors, the theology and jurisprudence of Islam that evolved in the 8th and 9th centuries (CE), present Islam as a political, totalitarian ideology of supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance and gender discrimination. It is this theology of violence, exclusivism and world-domination that is taught in madrasas and sustains Islamism. But despite the Islamist violence against peaceful Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the community is still not focussed on the need for evolving a counternarrative of Islam.

     It is imperative that Muslim countries that have signed the UN Charter look into the issue urgently and work towards developing a new theology of peace, pluralism and gender justice. While several countries like Morocco and now Saudi Arabia appear to be moving in this direction, the one country that has made a solid contribution is Turkey. In a decade-long exercise 100 Turkish scholars have managed to limit the number of authentic ahadith to just 1600, out of over 10,000, and provide each hadith with context and suitable interpretation. This book of authentic Hadith has been provided to all mosques in Turkey but I hope it is made available to the global Muslim community in their own languages as soon as possible.

    Allama Iqbal, a poet-philosopher of the South Asian sub-continent had called for the reconstruction of religious thought in Islam almost a hundred years ago. Let us at least start working on it now....
