    Islam and Spiritualism

    Surah al-Kauthar has been discussed and explained in both the mainstream Sunni and Shia tafsir and more especially in Sufi mystical exegesis of the Qur’an. The Qur’an exegetes of all the different schools of thought in Islam have produced myriad commentaries regarding the true essence of the term ‘Kauthar’ mentioned in this verse.

    Current Affairs

    The Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind was bitterly opposed to the Pakistan plan. Its arguments against the Muslim separatism were (1) The Pakistan demand has British support and is nothing but an instrument forged by them to further their policy of divide and rule (2) Pakistan will split and, therefore, weaken the Muslims in India (3) Muslims’ real enemy is British imperialism and their only duty to defeat it and only a united action can achieve this (4) Muslims left behind India after separation will be at the mercy of the Hindus (5) Partition will hinder the missionary activities of the Ulema (6) Muslim League leaders are ignorant of Islam, have no ideology, and are only exploiting the name of Islam for the worldly gains of Muslim vested interests (7) Muslim League leaders are incapable of building up an Islamic State and their Pakistan will be no better than the Turkey of Mustafa Kamal.....

    Dialogue With Pakistan Is Not India's Necessity
    Tufail Ahmad, New Age Islam

    The ISI's ideological proposition is this: if we were to live in peace with India, why there was a need to create the state of Pakistan? The ISI views Pakistan as an Islamic state which was born because it was incompatible with India. As a result, each time there are talks between India and Pakistan, the ISI sponsors terror attacks on Indian interests.

    Sufism Set the Tone for Religious Co-Existence
    Raziuddin Aquil
    What distinguished Sufism from other forms of Islam was its belief that a human soul could achieve union with God, a belief later formulated in the doctrine of Wahdat-ul-Wujud (unity of existence, or monism as a reality). This doctrine often brought Sufis into conflict with Islamic orthodoxy (represented by the Sunni Hanafi Ulema or theologians). The latter believed that God was unique and therefore to suggest that a human’s soul could achieve union with God was to imply that there was no distinction between God and human beings. .....

That will be true journalism. Journalism is also about balance as well as representing the other side.

    Fighting the Ideology of 'Radical Islam'
    Fareed Zakaria

    In fact, the enemy is radical Islam, an ideology that has spread over the last four decades — for a variety of reasons — and now infects alienated young men and women from across the Muslim world. The fight against it must, at core, be against the ideology itself. And, that can be done only by Muslims — they alone can purge their faith of this extremism.

    Islamic Ideology

    The rise and spread of ISIS, Wahhabism, Boko Haram, and other supremacist religious creeds is rooted in their evil design and the use of Islamic vocabulary with falsified definition. So, Muslims must rediscover the original meaning of Islamic vocabulary as defined in the Qur’an to discredit these evil outfits. Traditionally, the term al-Islam stands for the religion of those who are commonly known as Muslims, the followers of Prophet Muhammad (s). In this traditional understanding, the term al-Eman has been used to also describe the ‘faith’ of these Muslims, the adherents of al-Islam. By the linking of al-Eman to al-Islam, the followers of Muhammad (s) were thought to be both the Muslims (الْمُسْلِمِينَ) and the believers (الْمُؤْمِنِينَ)……

    Triple Talaq Controversy: Male Chauvinist Indian Ulema Are Subverting Islam to Mislead the Supreme Court
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    ... Now Islam is a religion being practiced only by some Indian Mullahs, so it would seem. This even amounts to declaring Shias as well as Sunni Wahhabi sects like Ahl-e-Hadith apostate because they consider triple talaq in one session as equal to only one reversible talaq.

    Even stranger is the fact that AIMPLB consists of Ulema from Shia, Ahl-e-Hadith and other Salafi-Wahhabi sects as well.  Why are they not protesting at being virtually called apostate groups which have “re-written Quran and forced Muslims to commit sin, altering the very essence of the religion of Islam” by a group of which they are members?

    The most astounding fact in the AIMPLB affidavit is the justification it seeks for instant triple talaq from the Holy Quran. This has never been done before. Everyone knows there is no justification for instant triple talaq in the holy Quran. All protagonists of the triple talaq in one sitting have so far only quoted Ahadith (so-called sayings of the Prophet, many of them clearly weak and inauthentic, collected hundreds of years after the demise of the Prophet) and juristic rulings of companions of the prophet, or later jurists and theologians.....
