    Islamic Q and A

    Though the guidance of holy Quran is meant for everyone, believer or non-believer, as mentioned in another verse of the Quran “guidance for the people”, only the people of Taqwa benefit from the Quran. It is therefore Allah Almighty said “guidance for the Muttaqin”. For example, it is said “rain is for vegetation, i.e. the rain benefits vegetation, while it also rains on the barren land”. Those that are Muttaqin get benefit from the Quran while its guidance is meant for all mankind....

    Why the Mindless Ritual of Male Circumcision Should be Done Away With
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    It is considered a Sunna but then there is no evidence to suggest that the Prophet himself was circumcised. There is a fantastic Hadis which says that he was born circumcised but then again it is not the same thing as saying that he underwent circumcision. In short, there is no religious justification also for this practice to continue amongst the Muslims. If God says that he has made man perfect and that bodily integrity should not be harmed even after one’s death, then why are Muslim hell bent to make modifications in God’s plan? Isn’t it playing with the divinity to cut a part of human body which is part of the original design of God?...

    Is ISIS Actually Bad? Un-Islamic?
    Pervez Hoodbhoy

    So far ideologically unchallenged, ISIS is now fast increasing its presence across Pakistan and particularly in Balochistan. Even as it loses territory in Iraq and Syria, its propaganda units are trying to create new generations of religious extremists, much as they have done in Europe. Decrying IS as a rogue movement is insufficient to reverse this trend. It is also futile to claim that IS has nothing to do with Islam because its leadership carefully quotes supportive holy doctrines to justify every major atrocity....

    Instances like Hadiya will keep repeating themselves. And no community is free from blame of putting restrictions on movement of girls, curbing their sexuality and denying their choice of love and marriage. Caste and religious groups have all been guilty of stultifying women because they think that women become ‘astray’ and bring shame to the community and family. The honour killings witnessed in many parts of the country, and those that go unreported emanate from the same problem: viewing women as commodities and as the repository of shame. So while honour resides among men, shame resides in women....

    Scores of structures have already been pulled down in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Mosques, mausoleums and other Islamic structures are being flattened by hordes of religious zealots in these ‘Islamic’ countries day in and day out. But one wonders why the self-styled Muslims’ defenders like Ansar Ghazwa-tul-Hind or other al-Qaida outfits wilfully ignore this wanton travesty of religion and history in the Pak-Afghan region. Why the bully pulpit of the Pakistani and Afghani jihad is silent on the routine attackers on mosques and shrines in Pakistan and Afghanistan? .....

    Syed Ahmed Khan was also indifferent to the education of Muslim women. He made no effort whatsoever from which one can deduce that he viewed the education of Muslim women as a desirable project. It remains a fact that women’s education was a late starter on the campus of Aligarh. Such indifference became active hostility when it came to modern education for lower caste Muslims. Syed Ahmed was positively opposed to educating the Muslim lower castes which formed the majority of Indian Muslim population. He did not think that the lower caste Muslims possessed the required mental faculty to go for higher learning through English language....

    Islamic Ideology

    Now if a Muslim person of this era quotes 8:60 or 9:5 or 9:13 in isolation disregarding consecutive reconciliatory verses (8:61, 9:6) and their context specificity (9:13) to instigate a group of his followers to commit any form of violence he is likening himself and his followers with the Prophet of Islam and his followers who were the direct recipients of the instructions of these verses. But such selective appropriation of Qur’an’s message to promote violence amounts to treacherous distortion of Qur’anic message....

    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 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…

    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....
