    Book Review: While Islam Is Compatible with Democracy and Pluralism the Current Intolerant, Xenophobic, Exclusivist and Supremacist Theology Is Brazenly Un-Islamic
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The anti-pluralism thesis and theology of the extremist Islamists such as the Salafist author of the book “Mujmal UsulI'tiqad Ahlis Sunnah wal-Jama'ah” should be condemned and refuted point by point to ensure democracy, pluralism and religious co-existence in the Muslim countries. For that, the monopoly of the priestly classes over the Islamic law and philosophy will have to be done away with. A great number of Muslim modernist thinkers, reformists and sociologists who ventured into Ijtihad or rethinking of the Islamic postulates have concluded that democracy is consistent with the progressive Islamic thought. …

    The First Steps toward a Reform of Islam: Muslims should address the violent nature of a certain number of Quranic verses
    Jérôme Blanchet-Gravel

    Muslim representatives should address is the violent nature of a certain number of Quranic verses. Contrary to Surahs revealed in Mecca (610-622), some of the Surahs revealed in Medina (622-632) show a will of power. The reason for this is that Prophet Muhammad has evolved in two different historical contexts in the seventh century in the Arabian Peninsula. If Muhammad was really peaceful in Mecca (610-622), he was more belligerent in Medina (622-632), which explains why a certain number of Quranic Surahs are vindictive...

    Imam-e-Haram’s Proposed Visit to Various Indian States: What Purpose will it Serve? Is it meant to further the Sunni-Shia Divide?

    It cannot be disputed that these governments are responsible for the greater defamation of Islam today, by helping to create the terrorist organizations like al-Qaeda, the Taliban and Daesh. By shedding human blood and vandalizing the holy graves of prophets and shrines of God's saints across the Muslim world, they continue to defame Islam and Muslims the world over. Thousands of innocent Palestinians have been victims of Israeli- violence over the years. Still, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE and other Wahhabi governments are silent onlookers of this dance of destruction. ....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam

    It needs to be reiterated here that the Shariah is a social construct that came into existence at a particular point in time, echoing the values of those times. That was then, this is now. Our times call for a reinterpretation that incorporates the notion of gender equality. Even if these religious bodies baulk at modern ideas of gender justice, they could at least study a few models present in the contemporary Muslim world for ushering in changes. The Mudawana--the new Islamic Family Law--of Morocco is a case in point. ..

    Islam and the West Are Partners in This War of Ideas: We Are In This Together

    West must stop looking at Islam and Muslims as the problem. Muslims are not the enemy here. Indeed, they are in the frontline and real victims of this war by a faceless, fast multiplying enemy. No part of the Muslim world is safe and stable today. So this war cannot be won by fighting and alienating Muslims. Islam and the West are partners in this war of ideas. We are in this together....

    The Supreme Court of India Has the Opportunity to Enforce the True Islamic Law on Divorce for Justice’s Sake
    Tahir Mahmood

    If Saira Bano’s plea, now before the Supreme Court, is accepted, there will be nothing “un-Islamic” about it. On the contrary, the court would be enforcing the true Islamic law on divorce and answering the Quran’s call for absolute justice and fairness in society.....

    Islamic Sharia Laws

    The relevant Quranic verses pertaining to divorce is verse 2:229-30 which opens with Al-Talaqu-Marratan which means 'divorce may be pronounced twice.' Maulana Usmani opines that the word 'marratan' itself implies a gap of time between the two pronouncements of divorce. It is during this period that attempts at arbitration and reconciliation have to be made. After this period, if the differences cannot be resolved, a final and irrevocable third Talaq is to be pronounced, for it has been said that a woman must either be retained in honour or released in kindness.....

    Islam, Women and Feminism

    The Sharia Law that governs traditional Islam is rooted in the legal opinions established by a group of Muslim jurists during about 150 to 250 years after the death of the Prophet Muhammad and is a varied sort according to different schools of thought. The majority – some 65 percent – of Muslims is Sunnis and they generally follow Hanafi and Shafii laws. There are more than six thousand Sharia laws in each of the Hanafi and Shafii Law books. Another point we need to note is that this Law draws on the Quran in a miniscule way that is rigid and non-contextual. Its main source is the Hadith literature, which is overtly and overwhelmingly biased against women....

    Bizarre Response of a Section of Indian Muslims to the Historical Sufi Declaration of Peace, Pluralism and Moderation
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Islamic scholar and journalist Dr. Zafar ul-Islam Khan writes in The Milli Gazette: “Delhi’s Sufi Conference is seen as a conspiracy to pit Indian Muslims against one another…. Barelvis have been apolitical traditionally while Deobandis were active in politics even during the struggle against the Britishers. A section of Barelvis has now joined hands with BJP while many others maintain a distance from it….”This is a bizarre argument. Not to speak of the so-called Barelvis, all those who profess and practice the universal and egalitarian Sufi message are indisputably ‘apolitical Muslims.’ They don’t challenge any regime. What ‘politics’ can one see in the Sufi endeavour to stress the Islamic message of universal brotherhood, multiculturalism and pluralism, at a critical time when the world is facing terrorist strikes almost daily in the name of Islam? Isn’t it the duty of all Muslims to counter extremism and protect the image of Islam? -----

    Islamic Society

    The environment in madrasas with their strict “Islamic” dress code, segregated classes and restrictions on personal freedoms promote insularity and separateness that is the antithesis of modernity. Co-education is banned in all madrasas run by the Uttar Pradesh Board of Madrasa Education; even in states where there's no blanket ban, mixed classes are discouraged and women face huge pressure to follow “Islamic” practices.....
