    Quranic Verses of Prostration  قرآن مجید میں آیات سجدہ: ایک قادر مطلق کی آفاقی اطاعت شعاری کا اعلان
    Kazi Wadud Nawaz, New Age Islam

    لیکن وہ اپنی ذاتی اور سماجی زندگی کو انسانی فطرت کے بنیادی قوانین اور ہدایت کے مطابق گزارنے سے گریزاں ہے ، جسے قرآن کریم سے اخذ کر کے ہمارے سامنے "شریعت" کی شکل میں پیش کیا گیا ہے۔ اپنی مخلوق کی بنیادی خوبیوں اور خامیوں کو اللہ ہی بہتر جانتا ہے۔ اسی لئے اس نے انسانی فطرت اور سماجی رویے کے اصولوں کی ہدایت کے طور پر "شرعی" قوانین پیش کئے۔ قرآن کی آیات سجدہ انسانوں سے شعوری طور پر "شرعی" قوانین کی تابعداری کا بھی مطالبہ کرتی ہیں۔ اور اسی سے ایک مسلمان کے سجدے اور کائنات کے دیگر تمام اشیاء کے سجدوں کے درمیان امتیاز پیدا ہوتا ہے۔

    Rejoinder To The Rhetoric Of Jihad In Kashmir  कश्मीर में जिहाद के एलान का दंदान शिकन जवाब

    The specific contours of Thanawi’s legal philosophy, psychology and theology that limit his choices for seekers (Salik) in general and fatwa seeking masses in particular to accommodate less ideal modes of living forced by modernity call for informed analysis and critique in light of great Sufi Masters and jurists who embody other less disciplinarian streams of thinking.  What needs to be emphasized is that Thanwi had much more optimistic view of otherworldly prospects for sinning believers...

    In no language can the civilised world express its disgust for the sledging of artefacts in minutes of human heritage of “knowledge” that were obtained over decades of sifting the girt. When this savagery of destruction is compared with the efforts of the archaeologists on knees, to prise away from the earth a broken ancient pottery with a trowel and the softest hand-brush as if it a priceless gem, one is left speechless with admiration. If the tools of the archaeologists’ symbolise the goblet of wine from which mankind quenches the ‘thirst for knowledge’, the Islamists’ tools of destruction must symbolise the challis of hemlock to kill the knowledge thirsty humanity. ....

    Islam and Takfirism: Ideological Basis for Peace, Non-Violence, Tolerance and Human Rights in the Writings of Imam Ahmed Raza
    By Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    Having read the above excerpts and other books of Ala Hazrat, I do not find that Ala Hazrat Imam Ahmad Raza was hasty in declaring a person Kaafir. He had a genuine theological and rational ground in matters of Kufr. He refuted those Takfiri ideologues who allowed killing Sufi-Sunni Muslims in Arab world or elsewhere and those who misinterpreted the Quran and Hadith. But it is sad that some Indian ulema blindly declare him takfiri.

    In his thesis, Allama propounded that since the world is constantly changing, Muslims need constant evolution of Islamic theology to keep pace with the world. It can be inferred from his religious thoughts that modern democracy can go a long way in achieving this goal and the inconsistent concept of “caliphate” should be replaced by the coherent concept of “republic”. ....

    If the framework fully captures the divine plan, it will prove to be robust and will always provide the right answers to questions and prevent misinterpretations. If it imperfectly matches the divine plan, it will throw up anomaliesor contradictions which can be used to refine the framework or discard it as unreliable. The framework provides a hitherto unmatched power to further explore the Quran and mine for answers to complex questions faced and can be used by anyone. The framework replaces the defective frameworks and axioms of the past which considered every non-Mulsim as “Kafir”….

    By no stretch of imagination can we say that a solitary witness is always a liar and neither does the Quran call them a liar. It calls them a Fasiq or a person given to wickedness. The lesson to derive from this is that an individual who is concerned about the “sins” of others is driven by wickedness or by a hate for others rather than love. He is driven by feelings of revenge and retaliation rather than forgiveness. He takes gleeful pleasure in catching others in the wrong rather than overlooking faults…..

    '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....
