    It Is Time to Clearly Understand the Pristine Message of the Qur’an Rather Than Reading It with the Eye of Its Medieval Era Jurists, Scholars and Ideologues

    It is time to clearly understand the pristine message of the Qur’an rather than reading it with the eye of its medieval era jurists, scholars and ideologues. There is an urgent need to understand the core message of Islam that remains buried under layers of medieval interpretation. The  world is now too complex, too interconnected, too globalised to be divided into ‘black’ and ‘white’: ’the abode of Islam’ and ‘the abode of unbelief’. The overall message is: break the monolith wherever it comes from. The   fundamentalists must realize that their blind literalism could lead them to follow the letter of the law, but betray the intents of foundational texts……

    Justice: The Cornerstone of Islam
    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    Justice, in the Islamic paradigm, has a very broad connotation and even our individual actions vis a vis other individuals and the society at large are amenable to the rules of justice. Those who enquire about the basics of Islam are usually told about the “Five Pillars” of the religion. These relate to faith and to practice, but at a deeper level it might be said that there are two great pillars which support the whole edifice. These are Peace and Justice. Although God in Himself is beyond comprehension or analysis, the Qur’an gives us hints as to His true nature through what are sometimes called “the 99 names” and one of these is al-ªAdl, “the Just”. Another of these names is al-Muqsiö, “the Dispenser of Justice” or “He who gives to each thing its due”….

    Islam Has Given Birth To Monsters & Needs Reform

    This denial of the right to freedom vis-à-vis religion is one of the roots of the evil from which you suffer, oh my dear Muslim world; it is one of those dark wombs in which, in recent years, monsters grow, and from whence they leap out at the frightened faces of the whole world. For this iron religion imposes excruciating violence on all your societies; she too closely confines your daughters, and your sons, in the cage of good and evil, the lawful (halal) and the illicit (haram), chosen by none but imposed on all.

    Muslims and Islamophobia

    The fact that the deniers are rejecting the revelations given to Muhammad and insist on following what their ancestors had followed; means the rejecters are referring to pre-Quranic ancestors who are referred in the Book as of Jahiliya –of paganism. And so, the rejecters who insisted on following them voluntarily wish to remain as pagans as well.  In simple terms, the Book classifies such people as the first order of Kaafir- the rejecters who having given the message, consciously reject it outright. They are the least dangerous as they only turn ‘enemies’ when they take arms against the Muslims……

    Salvation in Martyrdom: The Islamic View

    The role of indoctrination in propelling individuals to take recourse to self killing need not be overemphasized.  But what is the role of human will in the   calculus. We see so many young boys, and in some cases even girls, blowing themselves for what they call safeguarding or furthering their faith Indoctrination is an expertise and it has the capacity to totally transform the mind. Where there are young, immature but fertile minds doctrinaires can turn them into breeding soil for virulent emotions.......

    In Search Of the Pillars of Islam
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The Siddiqin are mentioned ahead of the Shuhuda and must therefore rank higher than the Shuhuda. Who are the Siddiqin? They are not simply people who speak the truth because the Shuhuda also speak only the truth. They are the sincere and active seekers of the truth. The prophets were sincere seekers of the truth and this word is used to describe several of the prophets including Ibrahim (AS), Yusuf (AS), Idris (AS) and Mariam. The Prophets are also Shuhuda. While all prophets are Siddiq as well as Shuhuda, obviously not all Siddiq can also be called Shuhuda and vice versa. All Shuhuda are Siddiq but not necessarily to the required extent to be called Siddiq and vice versa.

    Can Sufism Sanitize Our Planet
    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    The Sufi ideal is to combine the inner and outer life to be active in the world, for example, as an economist or a politician, and at the same time to be inspired by attuning to the divine ideal. The important thing is the balance between these two aspects of like so that the inner light can motivate and shine through worldly activities. Sufism is the message of digging out that water-like life which has been buried by the impressions of this material life. There is an English phrase: a lost soul. But the soul is not lost; it is only buried. When it is dug out divine life bursts forth like a spring. Where is God to be found? ....

    Writing at the turn of the 13th century, Amir Khusro was just one of many Sufi saints to espouse the notion of love as the ultimate human emotion – the essence of one’s connection with Allah. From Al Ghazali to Rumi, Hafez to Bulleh Shah, sufism has had an impact on the practice of Islam across the Muslim world throughout the centuries.

    Who Are The Witnesses Or The Shuhada?
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    After the age of the Prophet, the age of his companions and the generation after them are regarded as authentic periods of Islamic history. The very same manner of referring to people who had been slain in the path of God as Maqtul Fi Sabil Allah continued to be followed in this period, too. But after this period, a change gradually emerged in the use of the term Shahadah, in the same way as changes began being made in the understanding of several other Islamic teachings, so much so that Muslims almost forgot that the term Shahadah meant Dawah and instead began to use the word as synonymous with martyrdom......

    Reform In Islam: Is It Possible?
    Gökhan Bacik

    This debate reduces to a linguistic one, at some point. Though “reform” is rejected, the Islamic tradition itself has its own words, such as ihya (revival) and tajdid (renewal). So reformists can shelter under these words to avoid censure from the radicals. The term tajdid has a particularly strong religious legitimacy.

    With 2 million people gathered in one small city for the hajj, some discomfort was to be expected. And putting up with it was, I initially thought, an opportunity to exercise the patience so very valued by our faith of Islam and in the holiest of cities. So we marched on hopefully.
