    Muslim Leaders Should Themselves Ban Triple Talaq, Polygamy, Introduce Other Gender-Friendly Reform And Bring the Practice of Islam Closer To Its Spirit

    For this middle path, the AIMPLB has a key role because it has many followers. They should step off the old track and project before the world the true spirit of Islam which is avowedly most gender-friendly and gender-sensitive regardless of its heinous distortion by groups like the Islamic State. They should say that we Muslims have never practised what the Quran and the Prophet taught us.....

    The Final Words on Triple Talaq: These Barbaric Acts Must Be Abolished and Right Rulings of Islam Should Be Reinstated
    Haider

    I don't ever understand why Muslims across the nations are so adamant on something which is not part of the rulings of Islam; it is even completely against the teachings of the Holy Quran. There are only two things, either these muftis (jurists) don't know what the rulings of Holy Quran are or they don't want to implement the true teachings of Islam....

    Reviving a Sunnah? How ISIS Justifies Slavery
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    For ISIS, the taking of slaves is a reminder to those who bow before the ‘Taghut’ (idol) that Allah alone is worthy of worship. This is the lesson that is sent from Allah to those who do not follow His command and the Mujahidin (ISIS) are only the fulfilling the will of Allah. Slaves therefore become a reminder to the community to which they belong, that they went astray in terms of religious practice....

    End Triple Talaq Divorce: Shayara Bano Case Will Be Critical For Gender Justice to Muslim Women
    Zeenat Shaukat Ali

    The arbitrary, undisputed, absolute power of divorce by the husband with triple Talaq in a single sitting was the common customary law practised in pre-Islamic Arabia in the days of Jahiliyya or ignorance.... This is a grave distortion of the law of divorce in Islam and was condemned by the Prophet as the following Tradition demonstrates: “The Messenger of Allah was informed of a man (Rukhana) who divorced his wife three times together, his face became red and he stood up in displeasure and said: ‘Is the Book of Allah being sported with while I am still in your midst?’” (NS 27:6)...

    Manipulative Nationalism: The Fatwa against Chanting Bharat Mata Ki Jai Is an Exercise for Hegemony within Indian Muslim Society
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Considered as the most important article of the Islamic faith, Tawheed, or belief in the oneness of God, is understandably the essential component of Islamic faith. The problem, however, is that throughout the Muslim world, Tawheed is understood and expressed in different ways. For example, within many Sufi traditions, Tawheed is also understood as the link which binds human beings to the Almighty through a very complicated scared cosmology.

    The Ahle Sunnat wa Jamaat in India (popularly called the Barelwis) link the individual soul to the One through a very complex web of chains called the Silsila. So according to this rationality, bowing to the grave of a Sufi divine is not a negation of the principle of Tawheed, but its very affirmation. The act of Sajda near the grave of the Sufi is an occasion to remember the divine, to come closer to the Almighty. The act of bowing transposes the faithful into a sacred time, linking him or her to the Almighty through the grace of the Sufi.

    But alas, for the Deobandis and other purist Salafi reformists within Islam, this beautiful imagination of spiritualism must be condemned as tantamount to associating partners to Allah.

    … Thus it is important to understand that the fatwa against chanting Bharat Mata ki Jai is an exercise for hegemony within Indian Muslim society. In other words, it is more fundamentally a position within Muslim society which has the potential of erasing multiple religiosities of Muslim experience in India. As Hindutva uses the icon of Bharat Mata for its own exclusionary purpose, the reformist Islam uses the icon of Mata to extend its own hegemony through its own interpretation of Islam. What gets lost amongst this manipulative nationalism is the myriad other imaginations of the nation, which provides the real glue that binds this country together…..

    Orlando, Homosexuality and Islam

    So, if we Muslims want to be consistent when we say, “all human beings have the right to safety and security,” we have to confront this problem. We need that much-asked yet much-refused concept: “Reform.” Just like we need reform in other harsh measures within the Shariah, such as the execution of apostates, blasphemers or adulterers...

    Ban Triple Talaq, Declare Muslim Personal Law Board Illegal
    Mohd Asim

    True that Caliph Omar sanctioned triple Talaq, but what these self-serving mullahs do is adopt the letter of the law, and junk its spirit. Caliph Omar pronounced triple Talaq as final in a few cases where women wanted to walk out of bad marriages desperately and their husbands were delaying the divorce by misusing the long-drawn procedure prescribed in the law. So it was for the sake of women that Caliph Omar gave legal sanctity to instant Talaq in the 7th century. But what the later mullahs have done is to twist it to suit their own anti-women and patriarchal ends.....
