    Why Islam's Reformers are Vitally Important

    Indeed, the paucity of books on anti-Islamist Muslims symbolizes their larger predicament: they are threatened, marginalized, and dismissed as frauds. Threats come from the Islamists, the advocates of applying Islamic law in its entirety and severity as a means to regain the medieval glory of Islam. Islamists attack modernizers with words and weapons, rightly sensing that these liberal Muslims pose a profound challenge to the current Islamist hegemony. ...

    God is not a fashion designer and milliner, else Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden would have donned His designer labelled dress and headgear, instead of wearing a giant fig-leaf each to ‘hide their shame’. Nor is He one who orders people to dress up in particular mode of apparel to enter His kingdom. It is not a ‘clubhouse’ that requires a necktie as its “code of dress” to gain entry. A nineteen century brave comedian wearing ONLY a necktie tried to enter such an exclusive clubhouse, but was thrown out ignominiously for his efforts!... 

    Islamic Ideology

    “Every word of the Qur’an is God’s message for all times to come, but every injunction of the Qur’an is not applicable for all times. There are mentions in the Qur’an that were clearly applicable for the Prophet’s (PBUH) time alone, like for example the guidance that the Prophet’s (PBUH) wives cannot get married to anyone after his death is a stipulation that is not applicable to our times. Similar is the case with many of the mentions in the Qur’an on slavery. An objective reading of the Qur’an itself clarifies which injunctions of it are time-barred and which of them are eternal.”...

    Justice in Islam—a Compulsory Obligation Universally and Categorically Imposed Upon Muslims— Towards Friends and Foes Alike?
    Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    Justice is one of the central values of Islam. Any system that is not based on justice is not acceptable to Islam. It is equally applicable for the entire humanity, regardless of religion, caste, culture, country and race. Islam has categorically and universally imposed the obligation of justice upon Muslims in all contexts. The Arabic equivalents for justice are the words ‘Adl and Qist that are more comprehensive, represent two of ninety nine beautiful names of Allah Almighty...

    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan on Islam, Peace, Interfaith and Christian-Muslim Relations
    Victor Edwin SJ, New Age Islam

    Muslims have viewed Christians as their rivals instead of looking at them as partners. This was a big mistake that they made. For long, I used to think about why the Quran advises Muslims to help God just as the disciples of Jesus said that they would be God’s helpers. The verse in the Quran which mentions this is in the chapter called As-Saff: “Believers, be God’s helpers, as Jesus, son of Mary, said to the disciples, ‘Who will be my helpers in the cause of God?’...

These acts of sacrilege were re-enacted by a new generation of Wahhabi zealots led by Abdel-Aziz Ibn Saud during the second Saudi state, a century later....

    Aligarh Muslim University – Muslim Leaders Need to Quit Minority Syndrome
    Tufail Ahmad, New Age Islam

    The Mohammedan Anglo-Oriental College, which Sir Syed Ahmed Khan had established in 1875, was dissolved and re-established as the Aligarh Muslim University by an act of Indian parliament in 1920. The AMU therefore is subject to the provisions of the Constitution. While the Constitution gives rights to minorities to establish educational institutions, such institutions cannot retain a minority character if their funding comes from the Indian state. India being a secular state, AMU cannot get taxpayers' money. Under Article 30(2), the state can give aid to minority institutions. But the AMU's case is not a case of the state giving aid, but a case of the Indian state fully funding and running an institution specifically for a minority community....

    Dalit Muslims are those converted to Islam from ex-untouchable castes. They constitute a third category called the Arjals (from the Arabic rizl, meaning of no use) who occupy the lowest rung of Muslim society. These castes are considered unclean even by the lower caste Ajlafs. Some of these castes are Lalbegis (scavengers), Dafalis (the drum makers), Hawari (cleaner), Dhobi (washerman), Halalkhor, Gadhedi, Bakho, Machuara, Nalband, Bhatiara, Gorkan, etc…

    Islamic Scholars Must Join Ideological War   علماء اسلام کا اسلام پسند نظریہ سازوں کے خلاف نظریاتی جنگ میں شامل ہوناضروری

    لیکن ہندوستانی علماء کو ان کے ساتھبحث و مباحثے میں بالکل ہی مشغول نہیں دیکھا جا تا۔ انہوں نے ان کے ساتھ اس وقت بھی کوئی مکالمہ اور مباحثہ نہیں کیا جب اس نے پیغمبر اسلام صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے پورے خاندان کے قاتل’یزید‘ کو رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ کہا اوراس طرح اس پر خدا کی رحمت و برکت بھیجی۔ انہوں نے اس کے ساتھ اس وقت بھی کوئی مکالمہ اور مباحثہ نہیں کیا جب اس نے یہ کہا کہ مسلمان بھیڑ بکریوں کے ساتھ یا جنسی غلاموں کے ساتھ جنسی تعلق قائم کر سکتے ہیں۔ وہ اس کے ساتھ اس وقت بھی کوئی مکالمہ اور مباحثہ نہیں کرتے ہیں جب وہ اپنے نام نہاد پیس ٹی وی پر علیٰ الاعلان دوسرے مذاہب کی تذلیل و توہین کرتا ہے۔ وہ اس کے ساتھ اس وقت بھی کوئی مکالمہ اور مباحثہ نہیں کرتے ہیں جب اس کے ٹی وی شوز میں ہندوؤں اور عیسائیوں کے ساتھ مکالمہ اور گفتگو سے ملک میں فتنہ و فساد کا ماحول پیدا ہوتا ہے۔ واضح طور پر اس کی وجہ یہ ہے کہ اس کی باتیں ان موجودہ اصول و نظریاتپر مبنی ہیں جن پر مسلمانوں کااجماع ہے۔ ذاکر نائک پر تنقید کرنے والے علماء اپنی عادتوں کی بنیاد پر منافقانہ رویہ اختیار کر رہے ہیں۔ مثال کے طور پر جب سلفیت اور وہابیت پہلی بار ملک میں داخل ہوئی تو دار العلوم دیوبندنے اسکے خلاف فتویٰ جاری کیا تھا۔ اور جب سعودی عرب سے سلفی وہابی علماء ہندوستان آئے تو سب سے پہلے دیوبند کے رہنماؤں نے ان کا خیر مقدم کیااور وہ عظیم الشان استقبالیہ کے لیے ہمیشہ دیوبند گئے جبکہ دیوبند نے وہابیت کے خلاف اپنے فتوے سے باضابطہ طور پر رجوع نہیں کیاہے۔

If you meet the conditions today you can keep concubines. "The first condition is that if during waging of jihad the women who come with the enemy forces to support them are captured and the emir of the army distributes them, it is his discretion, we can keep them as concubines. Second, if we explore and find some market where slaves and concubines are sold and the sale is established as a social institution there, the women you buy from there will be concubine....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad
    '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....
