    Blasphemy Law Practiced In Pakistan Is Evil, Obsolete and A Way of Victimizing Its Minority Communities
    Raheel Raza

    The Prophet, whom Muslims are trying to protect, was — in his lifetime — cursed, abused and ridiculed. However, there is no historical tradition of him ever subjecting to death the people who abused him. On personal attacks, he just looked the other way and, in fact, forgave his persecutors. Ironically the so-called “protectors of the faith” will kill in the name of the very faith they call the religion of peace...

    The horrors of Jihadism, committed by those who claim to speak for my faith, is a complete rejection of Islam
    Qanta Ahmed

    But it’s not just the terrorists who twist and pervert Islam: it’s also those who commandeer the faith to demand the subjugation of women. In fact, Islam is quite clear on what it expects of women: that we observe the same duties of belief, prayer and charity as men, and enjoy the same legal rights — autonomy in marriage and divorce, holding wealth, inheritance and property, and so many others. This is the Islam I love and the Islam which fully liberates my life today. It is also the Islam which the cruel and the cowardly Islamist jihadists seek to obscure from view. In the name of God, don’t let them....

    Albert Einstein defined time “as something that we measure with clock. Time passes slowly within objects moving at speeds close to that of light and stops altogether at the speed of light. Time also slows near massive objects like earth, very dense stars called neutron stars and almost stops inside the super massive stars, the Black Holes. Time has a direction, it always moves towards the future. We see rains falling down from the sky, objects breaking up, people getting older, and people dying. We do not see a glass being unbroken, or anyone returning from the land of the dead. That could happen if Time ran backwards.”....

This would be detrimental to international powers, to the people's interest, where 60 percent of world's oil flows. So, the world has to really take rapid action in curbing China's influence in Balochistan in particular and in Pakistan in general....

    Islam and Mysticism: What Else Is Confused With Soul? (Part 3)
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    What we have clearly seen, is that neither Ruh nor Nafs mean “soul” in the Quran, and there is no other word in the Quran that means “soul” by its primary meaning. This article once again demonstrates the methodology for arriving at a correct understanding of the Quran without ambiguity, even when the scholars and the translators, all the imams and the Mufassereen, and the beliefs that we have grown up with, are all wrong. That is the strength of the Quran. ....

    Law, Morality, Triple Talaq

    Thus striking down triple divorce as unconstitutional or holding it un-Islamic in itself will not help. We must educate people and the Board must ensure that all divorces henceforth happen as per the Quranic procedure. The best solution to remove the menace of triple divorce under the Hanafi School is to order the incorporation of an explicit condition in the Nikahnama that there shall be no instant triple divorce and the wife too will have a right to divorce....

    Stemming the Ever Rising Tide of Islamophobia in America by Removing Misperceptions
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    In the perception of many Americans who are, if anything, more afraid of Islam today than before, the Sharia Law is inhuman and a threat to American civilization and must be banned. The perception, based on Islamophobic literature is reinforced by ISIS’s justification of its horrendous crimes by the Sharia Law of Islam. The American Muslims on the other hand glorify Sharia Law of Islam as a treasure-chest of noble rulings, without realizing that in the hands of the terror outfits and their ideologues of this era it has lost all its nobility and became an evil institution that is justifiably dreaded and abhorred by the lay Americans...

    Islamic Ideology

    The Qur’an as a whole, including all of its aspects and traits, is a miracle that no one other than God can compose. Emphasising the eloquence of Qur’an essentially reduces it to a literary masterpiece or a work of art. This is far from the whole purpose of the Qur’an. The Book is certainly a literary miracle, but that should be thought of as a secondary feature and a by-product of the real theme of God’s Book. Furthermore, the Qur’an is a miracle for all mankind, in all places and at all times...

    So the Muslims of the world – especially its leaders and educated elite must clearly understand the black and white distinction between ‘Sharia of Islam’ and the ‘Sharia Law of Islam’ (‘Islamic Law’) as this paper attempts to expound in very simple but compelling terms - otherwise they will live in perpetual confusion and chaos and allow a handful of proponents of Sharia Law to form mini-Caliphates, terrorize the whole world and create mayhems in their own lands.....

Consequently the first group has shunned the Quran and Hadith while the second group has shunned Tasawwuf....

    Were Your Ancestors Forced To Convert To Islam? Probably Not
    Hassam Munir

    In the Qur’ān, Muslims are reminded that “[t]here shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion [of Islam]” (2:256). Classical commentators on the Qur’ān, such as the famous Ismā‘īl ibn Kathīr (d. 1373), and more recent ones such as Sayyid Qutb (d. 1966) and Mawdūdī (d. 1979) are in agreement that this passage forbids any form of coercing non-Muslims into embracing Islam.

    Islam and Mysticism: Is ‘Ruh’ Soul? (Part 2)
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The Quran has come by inspiration to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The verse also says that what has come by inspiration is not all “mystical” knowledge, but only a little. However, another verse 5:3 says “This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion”. The primary purpose of the revelation was therefore to give mankind the complete Deen or the Islamic way of life, while also giving us a little of the “mystical” knowledge on a need to know basis or to the extent we are capable of understanding using similitudes or allegorical language....

    With the break-up of joint family system, reduction in family size to just an off-spring or a few siblings, loosening of family ties due to globalization impacts – that is relatives spread across the world and absence of stranded travellers in our cities and towns or our neighbourhood, the statements of the above sound outdated and archaic – they sound no alarm bells. But the Qur’an asks us to reflect upon them if we indeed believe in its divinity commit ourselves to its tenets of guidance...

    Islam and Politics

    The Muslim clerics may have a valid reason to disassociate Islam from such audio messages, but their silence and failure to condemn it in strong terms may give the impression to the common people in the community that they are not against it. Since Muslim intellectuals are not ready to confront the challenge of Jihadi radicals like Zakir Musa and others, the Muslim masses are bound to follow the dictates of the self-serving Ulema/ Islamist Indians.....

    The Sunni-Shia Discord: Can These Divisions Be Healed?
    Ikram Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Thus, these former Zoroastrians became sympathetic to this new sect that attracted political and spiritual dissidents. The new sect had some eclectic ideas drawn from Greek Philosophy, Neo Platonic, Gnosticism, Zoroastrian messianic tradition and Christianity. So it was able to provide with an alternative that resembled their former belief system. For example, the belief about the sanctity of the blood of house of David resembled the concept of the sanctity of the Imam, a direct descendent from the blood line of the progeny of Ali and Fatima.  This also bears a resemblance to the Christian idea that “the Messiah has arisen from the sacred blood.”...

But it will not take a great deal of reflection to realize that the above questions are no less relevant for this era than they were in the era of revelation. In fact they are bright red lights on the moral pathways of our life today. But we don’t see them or pretend not to see them. …

    'Make Revolutionary Changes in the Islamic Theology of Consensus to Fight Jihadism': Sultan Shahin Asks Muslim Nations at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Sixteen years after 9/11, the issue of Jihadi terrorism has become even more complex and widespread.

    First, though Jihadism is a violent offshoot of Wahhabism and Salafism, the international community has allowed the fountainhead of Wahhabi/Salafi ideology to continue to spend tens of billions of dollars to Wahhabise the world Muslim community.

    Second, we recently saw with horror, but without any protest from the international community, the sight of a UN-designated terrorist, with a ten-million-dollar bounty on his head, launch a political party and nominate another US-designated terrorist to contest democratic elections in Pakistan. Apparently, some countries can ignore UN directives with impunity.

    Third, the Muslim community has failed to grasp that Jihadism spread so rapidly around the world because at its core it is not very different from the theology of consensus that informs the religious beliefs and practices of all Muslim sects. That is why Jihadis are not impressed when we Muslims either proclaim that Islam is a religion of peace and pluralism or when we try to wash our hands off Jihadism by claiming that it has nothing to do with Islam. If we Muslims want to live as honourable citizens in the 21st century’s globalised world, we must rethink our consensus theology in all its dimensions and make revolutionary changes to bring it in line with the needs of present times....
