    Islamic Society

    As in most religions, Muslims mostly understand and practice religious teachings they take for granted. If they do not depend on clerical authorities they usually obtain religious teachings from available written sources, tradition or even use their common sense and because a religion tends to easily enable absolutism — that one perceives everything related to his religion as sacred and undisputable — the seeds of terrorism can straightforwardly be sowed.....

     
    Islam and Pluralism

    Muslims Must Take A Hard Look At The Popular Islamic Theology Of The Era, Focus On The Essentials Of Their Deen To Survive In These Progressive, Pluralistic, Humanistic And Politically Volatile Times
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    This exposition of the dichotomy between the popular theology and ‘din’ of Islam reinforces Sultan Shahin Saheb’s call to create “a coherent theology of peace and pluralism, consistent in all respects with the teachings of Islam, and suitable for contemporary and future societies.”...

    The bitter and shameful truth is, the traditional Ulema preach practically the same thing and cite practically the same illustrative examples, tales and episodes as their counterparts of the medieval era – dating back to more than a millennium from this day. Recurring exposure to antiquated materials purports to retard the mental development of their 21st century listeners, and renders the traditional Ulema of Islam as agents of retrogression, unfit to take any part in the numerous fields, activities and arenas of modern life. As a result of this deep disconnect between the antiquated and divergent Islamic theological scholarship and the needs, issues and priorities of this era, the former fails to offer a cohesive era-compatible code to the global Muslim community of the era. ...

    In sum, Muslims must evolve “a new theology, a coherent theology of peace and pluralism, consistent in all respects with the teachings of Islam, and suitable for contemporary and future societies."

    Islamic Society

    There are a lot of things which need to be changed about the madrasa system today. Their syllabus is outmoded and in need of major revision; what they teach millions of Muslim children can only be termed as violence as it does not prepare them to negotiate with the structures of modernity. Their sectarian outlook must change in a way that there is no teaching of treating Muslims of other sects as potential unbelievers. ...

    ‘Bharat Mata’ and Its Discontents
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Otherwise, there wouldn’t have been so many different interpretations of the Sharia which have spawned different interpretive communities like the Deobandis, the Barelvis, the Ahle Hadis, etc. Despite his positioning as the sole Muslim leader in India, Owaisi must contend with the fact that there will always be a Jawed Akhtar who to call his bluff. If not then there will be thousands others, just as in the ongoing Sufi conference, who would chant Bharat Mata ki Jai, with so much passion that it will drown the reluctance of Owaisi to chant that slogan.....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam

    In many quarters it is believed that God’s Messengers were exempt from the universal rules ordained for mankind to obey. Therefore Messengers as Pontifex Maximus could practice a few things contrary to the messages of change they preached. This assumption is illogical and propagated in self-interest. … The glaring example of this exemption bestowed on Muhammad via Apocrypha is in terms of the multiple wives that he is alleged to have married and had concubines, in contradiction to the ordinance of the Book….

    Messengers come to change the behaviour and the degeneration of character in the society’s prevailing customs and modes. Therefore to give exception for them to practice the same faults as what the people had practiced is to say the least illogical. It can only be concluded therefore that such allegations made by ancient scholars and translators and heaped on the messengers can only be to legitimize their immoral practices for themselves and give them holy sanctions.

    Farahnaz Ispahani’s book, bravely records near extinction of Pakistan’s Religious Minorities, Hindus, Christians and Jews, and focuses on intensifying sectarian conflict

    As Ms Ispahani stresses, with her carefully chosen extracts from the report, Justice Munir and Justice Kayani were astutely and firmly establishing the absurdity of the arguments made before them. “No two Ulema,” they wrote, “have agreed before us as to the definition of a Muslim. If the constituents of each of the definitions given by the Ulema are given effect to, and subjected to the rule of ‘combination and permutation’ and the form of charge in the inquisition’s sentence on Galileo is adopted mutatis mutandis as a model, the grounds on which a person may be indicted for apostasy will be too numerous to count.” In conclusion, the Muslim Commission made a pithy remark: “If we adopt the definition given by any one of the Ulema, we remain Muslims according to the view of that Alim (scholar) but Kafirs according to the definition of everyone else.” In reproducing that line, Ms Ispahani has said it all.

    Religious Extremism or Extremely Religious; A Feminine Perspective
    Inas Younis, New Age Islam

    Extremism is a largely secular phenomenon, because extremism is actually a necessary condition to the application of natural law. The laws of physics do not change and one must be extreme and precise in applying them. A mathematical equation has only one answer, and an approximation no matter how close is not close enough.  One cannot be moderately dead, or moderately pregnant. And when a tree falls in the forest it does make a sound, even if no one is there to hear it.....

    Debating Islam

    Is Javed Ahmad Ghamidi Phenomena A New Fitna (Mischief)? Self-Righteous Kashmiri Sectarian Ulema Confer At A Book Release Function
    Mushtaq Ul Haq Ahmad Sikander, New Age Islam

    Javed Ahmad Ghamidi is one of the few sane scholars of Islam who calls for moderation, tolerance, pluralism and core values of Islam. He enjoys mass appeal among youth, as he can communicate to them unlike the traditional sectarian scholars and mullahs. He needs to be listened and appreciated for articulating a moderate, tolerant and inclusive interpretation of Islam. The attempts of low rung mullahs and sectarian scholars who enjoy little appeal among masses will in no way hamper the mission of Ghamidi, but it certainly points out a disturbing trend in Valley where pluralism of interpretation of religion is being curtailed through Unitarian efforts of sectarian censorship. This needs to be discouraged at every level because Muslims are not a monolith and in our tradition of Islam and Rishism, dissenting, alternative voices have never been curtailed by demeaning, labelling and branding them as conspiracy against Islam.

    Surah al-Kauthar has been discussed and explained in both the mainstream Sunni and Shia tafsir and more especially in Sufi mystical exegesis of the Qur’an. The Qur’an exegetes of all the different schools of thought in Islam have produced myriad commentaries regarding the true essence of the term ‘Kauthar’ mentioned in this verse.

    Current Affairs

    The Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind was bitterly opposed to the Pakistan plan. Its arguments against the Muslim separatism were (1) The Pakistan demand has British support and is nothing but an instrument forged by them to further their policy of divide and rule (2) Pakistan will split and, therefore, weaken the Muslims in India (3) Muslims’ real enemy is British imperialism and their only duty to defeat it and only a united action can achieve this (4) Muslims left behind India after separation will be at the mercy of the Hindus (5) Partition will hinder the missionary activities of the Ulema (6) Muslim League leaders are ignorant of Islam, have no ideology, and are only exploiting the name of Islam for the worldly gains of Muslim vested interests (7) Muslim League leaders are incapable of building up an Islamic State and their Pakistan will be no better than the Turkey of Mustafa Kamal.....
