    Had The Hadith Already Asked Muslims 1400 Years Ago Not To Join ISIS?

    Had The Hadith Already Asked Muslims 1400 Years Ago Not To Join ISIS?
    By Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    An honest study of the holy Quran and Sunnah demonstrates the fact that terrorist groups like ISIS act in complete disagreement with the injunctions of Islam. The Quran, for example, equates killing of one person to the elimination of all mankind (5:32), and describes persecution and disorder on earth as an even worse offense (2:217). The study of the ahadith [plural of hadith in Arabic] also shows that the beloved Prophet warned us of the evolution of religious extremism and violence 1400 years ago in astonishing detail. For instance, he prophesized that a time would come when nothing would remain of the true spiritual essence of Islam except the word ‘Islam’, nothing of the Quran except its word and many “Mosques would be well-furnished but bereft of the guidance” (see the book of hadith “Mishkat Al-Masabih”).

    Grand Mufti and the highest Islamic authority in Syria— Shaikh Ahmad Badruddin Hassoun—maintains that he is both “Sunni and Shiite” at the same time. "I am Sunni in practice, Shiite in allegiance. My roots are Salafi [righteous], and my purity is Sufi [saintly]", he said, as reported in an Arabic media outlet. But Wahhabism is not a mainstream Islamic sect like Sunni or Shia. Rather, it is an extremist ideology based on an exclusivist takfirist theology propounded by the medieval theologians……..

    The only answer lies in adopting a policy of religious tolerance, and respect for other people’s convictions.

There should be mutual respect for each other’s faiths….

    Education has produced terrorism. It sounds shocking but it is true: The kind of religion-based education given in Pakistan. Such influence doesn’t end even after students join engineering and medical university. Universities turn out nuclear scientists who claim they can make electricity for the whole of Pakistan from a single Djinn. The textbooks don’t let go of nationalism which in Pakistan is India-centric and is useful among Pakistanis for judging each other too because judgemental is what you become instead of being inquisitive.....

    The Sixteen Quranic Verses That Counter Violent-Extremism and Terrorism

    The Sixteen Quranic Verses That Counter Violent-Extremism and Terrorism
    Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    The rulings of classical Islamic Sharia are based on four main sources; the Quran, the Sunnah, Ijma (Consensus) and Qiyas (analogy).All the last three sources of Islamic rulings must be in essential accord with the holy Quran, the most basic source of Islamic knowledge. When the holy Quran itself does not talk directly, or in details about any certain matter, only then do the classical Islamic scholars turn to alternative sources of Islamic rulings. In my classical Islamic studies, I reach a conclusion that all these sources of Islamic rulings reject violent extremism and injustice; however in this article, I am quoting only the Quranic verses for this purpose. The number of such verses has reached sixteen.….

    Clearly, this solemn occasion cannot be confined to only animal sacrifice. We must engage in all virtuous and harmonious acts based on kindness and sharing to achieve the noble objectives of Eid-ul-Adha. It is indeed ordained on Muslims to sacrifice Halal or permissible animals in remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim’s devotional sacrifice to God and distribute them to the poor and the less fortunate. Some affluent Muslims go as far as donating money and several kilos of meat to feed the poor families in their country as well as abroad. However, the ritualistic animal sacrifice is not the core essence of this festival. Muslims may go for many other ways to emulate Ibrahim’s devotion to God during Eid-ul-Azha.....

    Islam and Spiritualism

    Traditionally the word Zakat, which appears in the Qur’an repetitively in the expression Aqimus Salata Wa Aatuz Zakata is translated as ‘mandatory charity’ or the institutional Zakat that is collected and disbursed by the Islamic state. The Qur’an, which largely pre-dates the formation of Islamic state under Caliph Umar, connotes this word with care and concern for humanity. Accordingly, the Meccan Muslims (23:4, 31:4), the ancient prophets (21:73) the wives of the Prophet (33:33)and the persecuted followers of Prophet Moses (2:83), who lived prior to the introduction of mandatory Zakat, were asked to exercise Zaka…

    Instant Triple Talaq Judgment and After

    The statement of the Jamiat Ulema e Hind suggesting that they would not follow Supreme Court verdict only goes on to say how much faith they have in the Indian judiciary. For them, as for a majority of religious fundamentalists, the matter is very simple: if the courts rule in their favour then they would hail the verdict, but if the law goes against then, the judiciary becomes a pawn in the hands of ‘vested interests’. People like Madani bring shame to the Muslim community and people like him are responsible for making the community a sitting target for the Hindu Right wing forces who quickly announce to the world that Muslims do not believe in the Indian nation, far less the judiciary....

    In sum, the populist model of Zakat in this era is liable to gross manipulation or rationalistic interpretation by the rich, who can become richer and richer without sharing their wealth with the poor in any substantive way. This has created virtually an Islamic Capitalism that frustrates the Qur’anic message on social justice, and widens wealth gap and income disparity between the rich and the poor in practically all Muslim countries. Hence, there is an urgent need to redefine the base and arithmetic of Zakat to bring it in line with the economic order of this era…..

    Islam Calls for Individual Idealism, On The One Hand, And Social Pragmatism, On the Other
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

    The majority of the present Muslims have deviated from Islam. They have adopted a political goal, and a political goal always leads to violence and war. I can say that political rule is not the goal or target of Islam. But many present-day Muslims have adopted political rule as their target and they claim that this is an ‘Islamic’ mission and that their activities in this regard are a ‘jihad’. But I say that this is completely wrong. This claim of theirs has no sanction in the Quran and Hadith. It is an innovation—or what is called Biddah. All these activities in the name of jihad, in the name of ‘Islamic rule’, are wrongful innovations....

    Reflections on Qur'anic Message - Part-10: Spending For Others in Need – Or In Charity
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    The Qur’an that dominated the social, commercial and civil ethos in early Islam must have greatly reduced the income disparity of the times but the remoteness of the era and from the Qur’anic ideals has turned the clock back by many centuries in the Islamic societies. This is reflected in rampant poverty, rising income disparity, lack of social securities, growing number of beggars and child labor, and an increasing availability of cheap industrial and domestic labor in most 3rd world Muslim countries. Hence, the rich and resourceful Muslims who recite the Arabic Qur’an or listen to its beautiful recitation from U-Tube must also heed what it says…

    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....
