    The War Within Islam

    Built around a tribal accord, Misaq-i-Madina, citizenship required only that an individual submit to the authority of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Perhaps anticipating that his followers would someday spread beyond the oases of Makkah and Madina, he very wisely left unspecified which territories constitute Dar-ul-Islam....

    میں اکثر ایسے لوگوں سے ملتا رہتا ہوں اور میری یہ جاننے کی کوشش ہوتی ہے کہ وہ کیسے ایسی لت کا شکار ہوگئے ہیں جو صحت کے لیے نقصان دہ ہے، میں نے ایک شخص سے اس کی وجہ دریافت کی۔ وہ مسکرایا اور مجھ سے کہا ‘‘ یہ میرے لئے ایک بھولاوا  ہیبٹ ہے’’۔ اس نے مجھ سے کہا کہ وہ اچھی طرح سے یہ جانتا ہے کہ یہ ایک جان لیوا لت ہے لیکن اس کے باوجود میں نے اسے اپنایا تاکہ میرا درد کم ہو سکے۔

    Was Allah Unjust in Creating Adam and Favouring His Progeny Over All His Creation?
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Man is the only creation that has moral agency, capable of both good and evil. Every other creation follows the nature given to it and is therefore not subject to Allah's judgment. We know from our history that the modern man with cognitive abilities did not appear on the earth until 70,000 years ago. There were other progenitors of human beings besides Adam, who appeared about 250,000 years ago. Every other species of humans besides the progeny of Adam is long extinct. Humans were like any other animal and lived like animals without guidance from Allah, without religion and without culture.  “The most important thing to know about prehistoric humans is that they were insignificant animals with no more impact on their environment than gorillas, fireflies or jellyfish” (Harari).The Quran says of such people:

     (76:1)” Has there not been over Man a long period of Time, when he was nothing - (not even) mentioned? “

    Islamic Ideology

    Almost everything that has to do with celebration of beauty and regard for many art forms is suspect today in the name of Islam. Aesthetic dimension of life/Islam has not been given due consideration by Madrasas, Universities or other educational institutions and it is no wonder that our lives, our surroundings, our cities and other living spaces are largely bereft of beauty. Few know that cultivating beauty in every act is the fulfilment of Islam. The Islamicate world has been a cultured world with much emphasis on beauty, on poetry, on arts, on higher intellectual pursuits and so many applied/traditional sciences.

    Do Not Repeat the Mistakes of 1989 in Allowing the Return of Taliban, New Age Islam Editor Sultan Shahin Asks International Community at UNHRC in Geneva

    Mr. President,

    The US is withdrawing from Afghanistan as well as from Iraq and Syria. Inspired by the Taliban declaration of victory, a radicalised terrorist in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, backed by a Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist organisation, attacked an Indian military convoy, killing 40 soldiers. Similar suicide attack killed 27 elite revolutionary guards in Sistan, Iran. Emboldened Jihadists will surely carry out more such attacks in future. The gloating in Islamist circles for having “defeated” both the superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, has reached its peak.

    Mr. President,

    Still fresh in our minds is what happened when the international community abandoned Afghanistan in 1989. Taliban ruled and Al-Qaeda got a safe haven. A series of atrocities including 9/11 and horrors of Islamic State followed.

     In this backdrop, the complacency of the world community in allowing Taliban to govern Afghanistan is inexplicable. Jihadist strength does not come from their soldiers and territories. It comes from an ideology and ideologies cannot be defeated militarily.

    Mr. President,

    The Jihadist ideology is based on very solid foundations in Islamic history, scriptures and theology. Moderate Muslims have not yet succeeded in evolving a satisfactory alternative theology of peace and pluralism to challenge the current theology of violence and exclusion. Even when such a theology evolves, it will take time and effort for it to be established. Mainstream Muslims should be allowed the time and space to work out and propagate a counternarrative. I would, therefore, urge the international community not to repeat the mistakes of 1989 and invite further disasters....
