    Unfortunately, only the rarest individual has the capacity to see through the elite-promulgated delusion that generated this benign expression and its twin notions that 1.5 degrees Celsius (above the preindustrial level) is an acceptable upper limit for an increase in global temperature and that the timeframe for extinction-threatening outcomes of this ‘climate change’ is the ‘end of the century’….

    While it may admittedly be impossible to prevent all attacks, there is no denying the fact that terrorism breeds in waters where democratic freedom is curtailed. Efforts being put in to eradicate poverty, promote sustained economic growth, good governance, rule of law, and respect for all religions, religious values, and beliefs is the only way to ensure we do not get terrorised into segregating the freedom of our citizens and avoid playing into the hands of the very forces we want to keep at bay....

The sooner the US heads towards reconciliation without encouraging warlords, the sooner the tone for the future contours of a stable and prosperous Afghanistan will be set.

    According to the law of nature, all men and women are children of Adam and Eve. That is, all human beings have a common ancestor. This means that mankind is a global family. All men and women are blood sisters and blood brothers. In the present day, this biological phenomenon has become a scientifically established fact. The fact of common ancestry has forever done away with the equation of “we and they”. Now the only valid equation is one that is based on the concept of “we and we”....

    Islamic History

    The loop of this intrigue was completed through the explanation or exegesis (Tafseer) of the Quran. All three strands of this scheme were shaped into an entrenched doctrine and anyone attempting to disagree with the officially recognised version or Imam of his time or deviate from this ‘established’ tradition later was persecuted by the authorities and shoved outside the pale of Islam by the debauch clergy. All conspiracy was put into motion by highly intelligent and skilled Magian ‘coverts’ with intentional or insightless support from their royal patrons, corrupt clergy, and pertinent assistance from other religions.

    Violence and Hate Have No Place in Islam: Islam Requires Positivity
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, New Age Islam

    I think that peace is the Summum Bonum, the greatest good, because peace has no limit. We all say that we want peace. We never say that we want ‘limited peace’, because peace has no limit. 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. All positive activities will come to a halt if there is no peace. Whether it be in religion or in secular affairs, in every sphere of life peace is essential for progress. That is why it is the Summum Bonum.....

    Repentance of Sins– the first Station of Islamic Mysticism
    Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    Repentance [Tauba] in Islamic mysticism is regarded as the first station of travellers on the way to the Truth, just as purification [Taharat] is the first step of those who desire to serve Allah Almighty. This is tantamount to a piece of land needed for laying foundations; so the person who has no piece of land cannot lay foundations for a building. Similarly, the person, who has not repented of his sins and asked forgiveness of Allah, can never march even a single step towards Islamic mysticism.....

    The Mujahidat Dilemma: Female Combatants and the Islamic State – Part One

    While, in recent years, most allegations regarding women bombers in Iraq and Syria have been dubious, there is reason to believe that at least some of these latest reports from Mosul are credible.  The Islamic State has not acknowledged responsibility for these reported female suicide bombings, but it has modified its ideological position on the permissibility of female combatants recently, adopting a stance distinctly reminiscent of its predecessor, al-Qa`ida in Iraq (AQI). Until now, this shift has gone largely unnoticed.....

    Judaism and Islam as Synergistic Monotheisms

    According to the Quran, God has sent prophets to every nation, and they have taught the same basic religion—of submission to the One God. The Rabbi quotes the Prophet as saying: “Prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.” This suggests the basic oneness of the teachings of all the prophets. “Since all monotheistic scriptures come from the one and only God,” the Rabbi says, “we should view other scriptures as potentially enriching our own understanding and appreciation of our own scripture”—surely a powerful way to bring people from different faith traditions into closer communion....

    'Instant Triple Talaq Is Un-Islamic'
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

    In Islam, Talaq is seen as an undesirable practice. But in rare cases, a couple may feel that their marriage is not working, and in this situation, divorce is allowed. However, there is a prescribed method laid down by the Quran (2:229). That is, a divorce is finalised over a period of three months. In the first month, the husband tells his wife that he has given her one Talaq. Both then wait for a month during which they could reconcile. After the first month, he may either take back the Talaq or pronounce it a second time. Both wait for another month, at the end of which, if he pronounces a third Talaq, the divorce becomes final.....

    Jettisoning The National Anthem In Madrasas Is As Divisive As The Hindu Communalists’ Bid To Vitiate The Country’s Atmosphere By Questioning Muslim Patriotism
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The decision of the Barelvi and Deobandi Ulema against singing ‘Jana Gana Mana’ and ‘Vande Matram’ might have been their individual opinion, but the mainstream Muslims have always sung the national anthem since independence. It’s regrettable that the Barelvi and Deobandi clerics have chosen to exacerbate communal tensions by issuing such divisive religious decrees at a time when a number of turbulent issues like the love jihad, Ghar Wapsi (Muslim conversion to Hinduism) and the cow-vigilantism, leading to mob-lynching, are already confronting the Indian Muslims….

    The Muslim tradition however has no basis in their Faith system derived from the source Book the Quran, which they claim to be their guiding Book to submit to the ‘Will of God’. Because in there, the Creator of the Universe declares that:

    22-37: Neither their flesh, nor their blood reaches God but to Him is acceptable only the observance of the duty on your part. Thus has He made them (animals) subservience to you that you may glorify God for guiding you to the right path. And give good news to those who do good to others....

    On The Historical Approach to Reforming Islam
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    If the Quran is the perfect, infallible word of God, then we need to review what the scholars and the Ulema have made of it in our theology using the historical approach, and get rid of all that is undesirable that has got into it. The process of reform is then not evolutionary but a resetting of our theology to the Quran’s ideal in the light of our understanding of the Book today. The understanding of the Quran could be evolutionary since we understand many of its verses better today because we have grown in our knowledge about the world and human nature. In this limited sense, the process may be called evolutionary...

However, the Holy Prophet corrected this for the people and said: “The sun and the moon are two signs among the signs of Allah. They do not eclipse because of someone’s death or life. So when you see them, invoke Allah and pray till the eclipse is clear.”....

    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....
