    Islam and Tolerance

    Today we have strayed from the soul of Islam in our personal lives; we lie, cheat, steal at a higher rate than ever before; we exploit and oppress in our small spheres. In short, our problems are caused by our moral corruption. But there is something more. And it is getting scant attention in the Muslim discourse. Islam teaches us the correctness of belief is even more important than correctness of deeds......

    Is Reconciling Two Provisions - Unavoidable Religiosity and Desirable Secularity- A Tough Task for The Judiciary?
    Tahir Mahmood

    Should the courts in a professedly secular state entertain and decide religious disputes? The answer depends on the concept of state secularity, which is by no means uniform. The US and France, with their doctrines of state wall of separation and laïcité, may answer this question in one way; India in another. India remains a deeply religious society and a stronghold of faith-based customs.

    The Saudis make a great fuss about the missiles that the Houthis occasionally launch at Saudi Arabian targets, in a pathetic retaliation for the intense Saudi air attacks they live under every day. Riyadh claims that the missiles must be Iranian, because the Yemenis are too primitive to handle that technology. This is more nonsense......

    Broadly speaking, Qur’an teaches Tauheed (Unitarianism) and stresses on the rights and privileges of people linking them with God and achievable through noble deeds. Following these principles, the power is entrusted in God rather than just in people. Moreover, Islamic Democracy does not propagate nationalism as nationalism is contrary to Islamic teachings. Thus, without propagating for one global Islamic state, it propagates fraternity between the Muslims living in different Muslim countries. ...

    Does The Quran Ask Us To Follow The Sunnat Of The Prophet?
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The teaching of the religion or Allah’s Deen is through revelation of the Book to the Messengers of God or the prophets. The revelations are connected with the different phases in the prophetic mission and incidents. It was also therefore experiential learning for the prophet and the people of his times. The teaching is also by way of the stories of the previous prophets and their people. The prophet is also cited as the best model to follow since he epitomizes the Book in his words and deeds in the matter of following the religion as detailed in the Scriptures or revelations. ...

    The Mutashaabihat Or The Allegorical Verses Of The Quran
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    There are therefore two types of verses – Muhkamat verses that use precise words in which we should take the literal meaning of the words and the Mutashaabihat verses that use a “tashabaha” or similitude and the similitude is not the reality itself but gives an approximate idea using what is familiar, to convey what is beyond our comprehension. While the word used is a similitude, the meaning of the verse itself is clear and never ambiguous.

    Simply, designate the child so killed as an object of sacrifice, and close to the religious sacrifice external to the precinct of Hajj. What is more, honour the child as the martyr “Shaheed” for the politician’s imperatives! Thus many birds are killed with one stone. The politician gains a symbol for his cause, the child is elevated as Jannati entitled to enter paradise and the parents raised to the exalted position of – however very reluctantly and heartbroken though – to apostolic status of Ibrahim the Haneef, the apostle who willingly (almost) sacrificed his son and in whose name this festival is celebrated....

    Reflections on Qur'anic Message - Part-6: Qur’an Singles Out Good Deeds as the Common Criterion of Divine Judgment for All Those Who Believe In God and Eventual Accountability to Him
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    There is no denying the fact that prayer instills the fear of God among great many devotees and restrains them from evil and thus imbues them with Taqwa (29:45), but there are many others who take Salah no more than a routine duty to God without the awareness that just reciting Qur’anic verses and assuming the postures of prayer without any conscious effort to exercise or cultivate Taqwa falls grossly short of the stated objective and solicitation of Salah…

    In Islamic scriptures (the Qur’an and the Sunnah), There are plenty of evidence on intrinsic supremacy of the Ramadan over all the other months of the Islamic calendar, and the same holds true for its last ten days (Asharah Akheerah) over its earlier two Asharas, as Laylatul Qadr, popularly known as The Night of Power falls on the odd nights (21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th), of this Asharah, which is described batter then a thousand months, in the Holy Qur’an, Because in this night Qur’an was revealed to Prophet (PBUH), and the angels and the Spirit descend on earth. Since we all are observing the last Asharah of Ramadan, this Article will discuss what Allah (SWT) wants form us to fully observe it, in order to attain salvation from Hellfire.

    18th Century Ulema: The Unsung Heroes of the First Indian Independence War In 1757
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The first Indian freedom movement of 1857 should particularly be recalled in this context. While 70 percent of the soldiers came from the Hindu or Sikh community, the Ulema and Muslim leaders like Maulana Fazle Haq Khairabadi, Maulana Ahmed Shah, Bahadur Shah Zafar, Khan Bahadur Khan, Begum Hazrat Mahal, Firoz Shah and Azimullah Khan were the most prominent characters in the annals of the revolt. Remarkably, Nana Sahib, Rani Laxmi Bai and Tantya Tope declared Bahadur Shah Zafar, a Muslim King, India’s first independent ruler on May 11, 1857. Similarly, Ram Kunwar Singh, Raja Nahir Singh, Rao Tula Ram exerted herculean efforts and sacrifices to uphold the 1857 revolt.....

    Supreme Court Fails To Clear the Mist around Triple Talaq

    It allows for an exit when the marriage breaks down but only under certain conditions. In Islam, marriage is a solemn contract (Meesaaqan Ghaleeza) and both parties have equal rights to revoke this covenant in accordance with Quranic procedure if the other party breaches it. Talaq is expected to be exercised only under extenuating circumstances.

    It allows for an exit when the marriage breaks down but only under certain conditions. The Talaq-e-Sunnah, the only form approved by the Prophet, as an elaborate procedure that spreads over three months and it is only after the completion of the third month that marital relationship ceases. It is of two types: Talaq-i- Ahsan (most proper divorce) and Talaq-i-Hasan (proper divorce).....

    The Quran Is the Perfect, Infallible Word of God, Even If All the Muslims Misunderstand It
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Islamic theology is mostly un-Islamic and needs extensive reform of a fundamental nature. It is full of utter nonsense. It is not very much different from what the extremists believe which is why it can never effectively counter them. To give you an example, in Islamic theology, kafir has come to mean a non-Muslim which is not the meaning of the word in the Quran at all. Now if you read the Quran giving the word such a meaning, and when this word in its various grammatical forms appears in the Quran more than 300 times, you can imagine the havoc it plays with the meaning of the Quran! What is the solution? The solution is to show exactly what meaning the Quran gives to this word with the help of the Quranic verses. Is that possible? It is possible to very precisely define what it means and what it does not mean after which the Quran reads very differently and makes very good sense. With the wrong meaning it sounds absolutely grotesque. By changing the meaning of one word, the word of God can be transformed into the word of Satan.....

    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    While the Quran may be a Book that makes things clear, the Muslims could still deviate from the Quran for narrow political interests, bigotry and parochialism that is common among the religious right in every religion. The reason that Muslims have many erroneous concepts is because of their theology which is based on the Ahadith and not on the Quran. The Ahadith differ from the Quran on every subject. The Ahadith were compiled two centuries after the death of the Prophet and its sole purpose appears to have been to bend Islam to the needs of powerful interest groups. A person who is first indoctrinated in the Ahadith will view through glasses that distort the truth and will not find the truth….

Peace is indispensible for every sort of progress. Without peace, you can’t do anything properly, not even walk on a street with peace of mind.
