    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Islamic State Vs Islamic Ideals: There is no clash of civilizations and terrorism isn’t jihad
    Maulana Mahmood A Madani

    ...al-Qaida and Taliban both drew a blank from the Muslims in India. IS too has so far met a similar fate inasmuch as the youths responding to its call can be counted on fingers. This is because of both India’s culture and its historical legacy. Muslim heritage is part of a larger tradition of multiculturalism and mutual tolerance. The 200 million Muslims in India are the legatees of magnificent contributions made by the Ulema and Sufis, over centuries of fraternal coexistence and heroic patriotism. No sacrifice has been too great for them to preserve this tradition. This was particularly so during the 1857 uprising and subsequent struggles against colonial onslaughts.

    Interfaith Dialogue

    I welcome your emphasis on “Spiritual Symbiosis” of world religions that will hopefully settle the dust of war and its by-product—terrorism. Presumably your hope and mine derives from the same notion and indomitable spirit once espoused by India’s great Freedom Fighter, Maulana Muhammad Ali Jauhar, who is commemorated by both India and Pakistan, in the following words:

    “I had long been convinced that here in this Country of hundreds of millions of human beings, intensely attached to religion, and yet infinitely split up into communities, sects and denominations, Providence had created for us the mission of solving a unique problem and working out a new synthesis, which was nothing low than a Federation of Faiths... For more than twenty years I have dreamed the dream of a federation, grander, nobler and infinitely more spiritual than the United States of America, and today when many a political Cassandra prophesies a return to the bad old days of Hindu-Muslim dissensions I still dream that old dream of "United Faiths of India." — ....

    The Birmingham Mushaf between Simple Facts and Manufactured Controversies
    Louay Fatoohi

    While the discovery of the Birmingham Mushaf has been misrepresented as potentially indicating that the Qur’anic text had existed even before the Prophet (Sallā Allah ‘Alaihi wa Sallām) was born, the more popular, though no less absurd, claim against the preservation of the Qur’an has so far been that it continued to be developed many decades after the Prophet died! This bizarre claim has been embraced only by a minority of scholars, not least because there is not a shred of evidence to support it and there is plenty of evidence, including old manuscripts, that refutes it. So this older, baseless claim has now been joined by the exact opposite claim that the Qur’an existed before the Prophet Muhammad (Sallā Allah ‘Alaihi wa Sallām) was born! They both share the same objective, however, of discrediting the Qur’an and the Prophet Muhammad......

    Islamic Scholar Maulana Wahiduddin Khan decries conspiracy theories during his US Visit: A Report
    Maria Khan, New Age Islam

    One should not consider a challenge as arising due to an ‘external conspiracy’. Rather, difficulties, both physical difficulties and intellectual problems, are part of this world. There are two kinds of challenges: crippling and non-crippling challenges. It is a crippling challenge that is a problem. Otherwise, a challenge is a booster for a community as it serves as a shock treatment, which, in turn, enhances one’s creativity. It is one’s response to challenges that determines one’s success in dealing with them. Chapter Yusuf of the Quran tells us that the right kind of response is one based on Taqwa, or God-consciousness....

    The Trial of Dara Shikoh

    We all knew that the mullahs would give a verdict they thought would ensure the emperor's patronage. The first Qazi asked Dara to hand him the jade thumb ring that was still on his left hand. He examined it slowly and asked, "This green stone is inscribed with the words 'Allah' on one side and 'Prabhu' on the other. Does this mean that you consider this Hindu god to be equal to our Muslim Allah?"

    Islam’s Legacy of Pluralism

    Islam’s Legacy of Pluralism
    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    The Islamic vision of pluralism is build around the philosophy of tolerance of diversity in thought and belief. One may, of course, devalue the other person’s beliefs without devaluing the person who holds those beliefs. The tolerant person wills to treat the person with significantly differing beliefs and practices as intrinsically valuable in spite of that person’s rejection of her fundamental human concerns. Tolerance is the cultivated disposition to subdue our natural inclination to distance, reject or persecute others whose beliefs and practices differ from our own. The tolerant person is, rather, disposed to recognise the other as an object of inestimable worth. The tolerant person says, in effect, “Our fundamental disagreement does not diminish my estimation of your worth as a human being and, therefore, though I disagree with your beliefs or practices, still I will endure them.”....

    Let us Make the Hajj Pilgrimage Easy and Reclaim its Spiritual Beauty!
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    There are many rulings pertaining to the observance of the Hajj that need to be revised in the context of the Islamic jurisprudential principle of lessening the difficulties (Raf’ul Haraj) and making things easy (Daf’ul Haraj). The Prophet (pbuh) is reported to have said, “Make things easy; do not make them difficult. Convey glad tidings and do not scare people off.” (Sahih al-Bukhari: 69 and Sahih Muslim: 1734) He also said, when asked about various circumstances in the Hajj: “Do so. There is no harm” (Sahih al-Bukhari: 83 and Sahih Muslim: 1306). Today, when an overwhelming number of pilgrims converge upon Mecca reaching tens of millions, rethinking the Hajj rulings becomes an imperative according to the basic jurisprudential postulates called Zarurat and Haajat (necessity). Any Islamic scholar will hardly dispute the fact that legal rulings change with changing times and circumstances (al-Zaruratu Tubihul Mahzuraat), .……

    How Relevant Are Madrasas

    The debate about the alleged links between madrasas and terrorism has tended to obscure the unique contribution of madrasas to human civilization. The debate on their relevance has morphed into a full scale media and commentator war that endangers their very survival. The implacable media and communally motivated leaders have continually targeted it with an avalanche of searing and strident critiques. The State has not only castigated it but has attempted to wrest exclusive control ever them. While it is true that madrasas have outlived their role, they need not be decimated. What they need is essentially a makeover in a way that respects traditional sensibilities and attempts to synergy classical and modern learning so that their products are viable for modern society. There is certainly a need for shift in paradigm.....

    Islam Is A Religion That Sustains and Preserves the Sacred Teachings, Ancient Teachings, Essence and Virtuous Legacies of Former Religions

    Mustafa Kemal was prone to a type of Islamism defended by Jamaluddin al-Afghani at the beginning. But then he agreed on a secular model because of the influence of external and internal factors. But if he had believed that Islam would have served the goals of the Turkish nation-state, he would have used Islam as a tool. Mustafa Kemal's practices and thoughts suggest that he sought to use the opportunities of an Islamist modernization model by relying on a Protestant religion…..

    The Human Dimensions of Pilgrimage
    Abdullah Hamidaddin

    According to the Muslim narrative, Hajj is a reenactment of some of the key events in the life of the Patriarch Abraham and his family, who were in Makkah millennia ago. The events mark manifestations of Abraham’s obedience and total submission to Allah’s will, as well as a rejection of Satan and his ways. Performing Hajj is supposed to be a reaffirmation of Abraham’s path.
