    Islamic Society

    The Muslim world throughout is plagued with the presence of two parallel education systems Schools, colleges and universities on the one hand and Madaris or Darul Ulooms on the other. They are parallel in a textbook definition of parallel lines; two lines that never meet. Together they are tearing the fabric of the Muslim community by pulling it in opposite directions. In order to understand where we stand and where we are headed with what we have, it is important to look at how we ended up where we are now.....

    Dhaka Attack: Facing The Challenge Of Zakir Naik, Will Ulema Rise To The Occasion?
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Our focus should not be so much on Zakir Naik as on the question: why and how he has so easily succeeded in radicalising millions. Saudis and ahl-e-hadithis have only provided him logistical support. In my view the reason he has succeeded is that he is not saying anything new. He is using the theology of consensus, the same theology that is taught in universities and madrasas of all schools of thought.

    His distinction is in the presentation, using modern means of communication. He is reaching those who did not have access to this theology before.

    That is why ulema cannot oppose him or other militant Islamic preachers. Sufi-Barailvis and even Deobandis have tried. They are angry because he has exposed their hypocrisy. ...

    Islam and Judaism
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

    Like Christianity, Islam and Judaism are what are called ‘Semitic religions’. But despite this, due to some reasons there is a widespread negative feeling among Muslims about Jewish people. This kind of negative thinking is not Islamic thinking, however. It is due to some political reasons. Islam is a positive ideology. Islam believes in positive thinking. The most important teaching in Islam is to live with positive feelings even in negative situations....

    Break Up Pakistan to Resolve Kashmir Jihad
    Tufail Ahmad, New Age Islam

    In present times, nations are invaded by ideas emerging from internal and external sources. There are two recent examples of this argument. One, Syrian refugees arriving in Europe have practically invaded local cultures, disturbing the rule of law in European countries. Two, in India television debates about pellets guns have emerged as more powerful than bullets, thereby posing a threat to peace in Kashmir. The tragedy of the Indian mind is that, in responding to the war in Kashmir created by the Pakistani-jihadi mind – it is seeking a political solution. In this context, discussed below are some difficult ways to resolve the Kashmir issue but first look at a brief history of the conflict....

    Islam’s ‘Golden Age’: Rationalist Disciplines In Islam Survived Well Into The 16th and 17th Centuries
    Ateeb Gul

    Far from being just an exercise in historical pedantry, an accurate portrayal of this historical period has real ramifications for the Islamic world today. Actual recommendations are made by educationists and policymakers based on the now-rejected myth of post-13th century decline. If we are to learn from history, as the old adage goes, we need to first get it right....

    Rejoinder to Dr. Tawfik Hamid’s Article, Stop 'Islamophilia' to End Islamophobia
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    While the list of brutal rulings can be extended, they do not constitute ‘Islamic religious ideology (Sharia), as they derive from the Sharia Law of Islam which is distinctly different from the Sharia of Islam. There is a subtle but irrefutable difference as explained below:

    The Qur’an represents the divine Sharia of Islam (5:48) which is preserved verbatim as revealed over fourteen centuries ago, and is not influenced by the opinion of scholars, politicians, intellectuals, philosophers or any human agency. It uses the words Shira (technically Shir’ah) and Sharia (tech. Shar’iah) synonymously with the generic notion of a system or principles of law (5:48, 45:18). It expounds fundamental universal notions for just and harmonious governance of human society. These include, among others, justice, liberty, equity, good deeds, good neighbourly and inter-faith relations, sharing of wealth with the poor, eradication of slavery, deliverance of women from various entrenched taboos, empowerment of women use of intellect (Aql) and rational logic (Fiqha) , striving for excellence – to cite some major examples….

    Madrasas and Failure of Muslim Leadership
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    There was an attempt made by the earlier government to bring all such madrasas under one umbrella by creating an All India Madrasa Board. It was a good idea to start with, but with various interests competing as Muslim interests, there was hardly any headway and eventually the suggestion went to the cold storage. The interesting part of this proposal was the it were Muslims themselves who had drafted this proposal. But then for many successive governments, some Muslims are more important than others. The opposition to this proposal from the Ulema saw to it that the bold proposal by reform minded Muslims was shelved....

    On the Self Acquired Importance of the Ulema
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The ‘golden age’ of Islam tells us that there was always a tension between the Ulema and the philosophers. The latter did not take them seriously and at times publicly lambasted them for their limited understanding of how the world works. To make matters worse, there were poets whose favourite pastime was ridiculing the Ulema for the incoherence of their thoughts. Moreover, philosophers were Aalims in their own right: no one could accuse IbnSina or IbnRushd for not knowing religion. Indeed, in their own worlds there was hardly a distinction between the pursuit of religious and material knowledge....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Radicalism Under The Banner Of Islam Is Mutation Of Islam Into A Cult Of Satan – So Muslims Must Create An Anti-Radicalization Narrative To Defeat And Disown It – Part 1
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    This article is in response to a recent press report according to which the President Elect of America, Donald Trump in his first telephonic conversation with the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin identified Radical Islam as the no.1 threat to peace and security of the world in this era. Conceivably, by Radical Islam they meant the ideology of murderous takfirism - declaring an innocent person or group of people ‘Kafir’ and killing them individually, in small or large groups or en-masse in terror attacks. The vast majority of Muslims, the world over, may have been offended or even shocked by this remark as this amounts to putting a tag of terror on their faith for the heinous crimes committed by an infinitesimally small minority of its followers. But they must not take the words of these great leaders as anti-Islamic rhetoric and search their souls.....

    Islam and Politics

    The parental instinct of ensuring security and nurture of one’s offspring, even if illegitimate, is a strong urge that overcomes and lulls any pangs of conscience. Hence it is not easy to admit to follies standing on false high moral grounds and when also possessing super military might. Although the incumbent US Secretary of State did say “Friends need to tell each other the hard truth”. The New Year does not auger well, never the less it is customary to wish HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL at this time!...

Islamist terror in Florida and Ohio, attacks in France, Iraq, Pakistan, India and beyond continue to take innocent lives and create an understandable culture of fear. Meanwhile, many Muslims still find themselves marginalized within their own community spaces: women, Black Muslims, sexual minorities and scores of other vulnerable communities continue to feel ostracized and even persecuted for who they are and what they believe....

    Can A Muslim Ever Be Anti-Semitic?
    Rashid Samnakay, New Age Islam

    For the Muslim nation as a whole, which considers Saudi Arabia, the cradle of Islam and the birth place of Messenger Muhammad, a samite, cannot by any stretch of imagination be branded as anti-Semitic. That would be thoroughly blasphemous. Therefore to say that Muslims, as followers of the faith Islam are anti-Semitic is compounding the felony since they, just as the Jews claim to be of the “nation of Ibrahim” because they follow the faith established by Aba Abraham, long before Moses and Muhammad were born....

For example, Prophets in many religions taught people that the law of the truth will be powerless and wickedness will increase at the end of the age. It also includes the corruption of the religious world. When this will happen, heaven will send a person to save the righteous, for example: Maitreya in Buddhism, Kalkin in Hinduism and Jesus in Christianity”. …

    Exceptional Sanction of Polygamy in Quran Is a Concept of Islamic Law Most Abused By Muslim Men over the Centuries
    A. Faizur Rahman

    Polygyny, which finds mention just once (4:3) in the Quran, is one of the most misunderstood concepts of Islamic law. It has been abused over the centuries by Muslim men without appreciating the spirit behind its exceptional sanction, which is clearly contextualised in the historical conditions of the time when a large number of women were widowed and children orphaned as Muslims suffered heavy casualties in defending the nascent Islamic community in Medina.....
