    A Guide to Islamic Da’wah
    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    In contrast to the renunciation of the world and physical self denial, the Islamic concept of spirituality lays stress on being in the midst of life, facing all the difficulties and hardships, and performing all the activities with the sole objective of seeking the pleasure of God. Man is God’s vicegerent and must fulfil the specified duties and obligations.  Far from proselytising and inducing others to change their religion or way of life against their free will, Islam does permit use of coercive, aggressive or violent efforts even while exhorting people to the common good of whole mankind….

    Five Indian Families, Including Young Children, Disappear To Join the Islamic State
    Annie Gowen

    By the time their relatives realized they were missing, five families – some with small children – had left their comfortable bungalows and jobs as doctors and businessmen to make the perilous journey to Islamic State-controlled territory in Afghanistan. Authorities believe 19 adults and three children settled in Nangarhar province, on the mountainous border with Pakistan. Their departure has raised alarms about the Islamic State's reach in India as well as growing extremism in Kerala, a southern state with deep ties through migrant workers to the Arab Gulf....

    There has always been the dilemma of shutting the mullahs up as it would encroach on their freedom of speech, but there is little doubt that the right to offer theological opinion has ended up as a free-for-all. The problem also emerges from the fact that Islam does not accord a formal status to the Ulema though some communities do see them as guardians of Islamic law. In some Islamic countries there are ministries that monitor Fatwas....

    Radicalised Women: The ISIS Offers Women Dignity, Purpose, Protection
    Huma Yusuf

    Research on the so-called ‘brides of IS’ has shown that women are radicalised by the same issues as men: a perception that the Ummah is under attack, frustration over the international community’s indifference to Muslim suffering, a sense of religious duty, the desire to meaningfully contribute to a utopian society, a craving for comradeship.....

He was 23. Pakistan was born in the Chinese Year of the Pig, which is deeply funny for many reasons...

    Europe's Rising Islam-Based Political Parties
    Abigail R. Esman

    These past several months, eyes across the world have been trained on a growing far-right movement sweeping Europe and America – from the neo-Nazi groups in Germany and the United States to the increasing popularity of France's National Front. But another, far less noticed but sometimes equally-radical movement is also emerging across Europe: the rise of pro-Islam political parties, some with foreign support from the Muslim world. And the trend shows no sign of stopping....

    Who Are Those Who Will Believe And Those Who Will Not?
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    There are many people who show an unflinching determination to disregard half of the relevant evidence! In Psychology this is called cognitive bias where we pay attention only to facts that support our prejudices. Uncomfortable evidence that contradicts our theory causes what is called cognitive dissonance. An honest way of dealing with cognitive dissonance is to revise our opinion/theory taking the full facts of the case into consideration. Dishonest ways are by way of discounting, falsifying, or by ignoring altogether the evidence that does not suit our purpose.....

    Uniform Civil Code or Islamic Reform?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The position of AIMPLB is only furthering the agenda of the BJP. If the BJP wants to portray the Muslims as the regressive minority, the AIMPLB is more than willing to act like one. By not engaging with the questionnaire of the law commission, it does not realise that it is sending a wrong message to other communities that Muslims remain committed to be wedded to the norms of a bygone era and refuse to come out of it. Granted that BJP might be willing to polarise society for electoral purposes, granted that it has a hidden agenda; ....

    The Misrepresentation of the Quran through Mistranslation
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The major source of mistranslation of the Quran is the mistranslation by every translator of the Quran of the word “Kafaru” as “disbeliever”. A disbeliever is understood as “those who are not followers of Prophet Muhammad” although even this meaning of disbeliever is incorrect. The Quran does not use the word Kafaru in the sense of “disbeliever” even in a single verse! As a matter of fact, the Quran makes it unmistakably clear that Kafaru means not a disbeliever but one of the following:...

    Unholy-ness Of the Language of Holy Scripture
    Rashid Samnakay, New Age Islam

    Most Holy Scriptures are believed by their followers to be the verbatim utterances of the Supreme Being- the God; annunciating ‘Truth’ by dictating it to His messengers. For Muslims, that being Allah, and the scripture Quran is the Kalaamullah- Logos, the word of God, and generally contended as being holy. However some verses of the Book itself, as understood from translations and comments, does not support this contention....

    Theism Vs Atheism
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Without the moral precepts we would have remained savages. If human thinking could produce moral precepts, philosophy would have been rich in moral precepts. Without moral precepts, we would have not reached our present state and without these we cannot maintain it either. If human thinking has failed to produce moral precepts, the claim of religions that have given us these precepts as being of divine origin is a very strong claim indeed. The Atheists ‘claim that everything is a result of the evolutionary process, is a weak one and not supported by facts...

    Is a Dalit Muslim Unity Possible?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Thus in all probability, this alliance is going to be a political alliance of convenience. It would have been much better if this alliance would also become a social alliance between Dalits and Muslims. But for that to happen, Muslims have to engage with the entrenched caste practices and ideas within their own community. It is all very well to say that Islam does not recognise caste, but anyone who is familiar with Muslim society would say that Muslims are as casteist as the Hindu society.....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam

    If the Islamic medieval rationalism that acknowledged the universality of knowledge keeps on being proclaimed an apostasy, and if authenticity is limited down to a polarisation of the self and otherness, then Muslims of the 21st century will keep on being unsuccessful in embarking on modernity. That is why the recovery of reason is imperative for the Muslim mind to be successful.....

    Enjoining Good and Forbidding Wrong
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

    This hadith talks about Taghayyur-E Munkar, which means rectifying or remedying a wrong. The Arabic word Taghayyur means ‘replacement’. Hence, in the above hadith, the word Taghayyur means replacing a condition of evil or wrong with a condition that is not evil or wrong. In other words, this hadith ordains the reforming of a certain condition, not engaging in conflict and causing destruction....

    Islamic Scholars Must Open the Gates of Ijtihad; Reflect Creatively On Islamic Teachings and Their Applications, Particularly Islamic Political Theology
    Waris Mazhari

    In part, the intellectual crisis of present-day Muslims can be traced to the suppression of the movement of Islamic rationalism by the traditionalist, orthodox Ulema in the early centuries of Islam. In the conflict between reason (Aql) and text (Nass), the suppression of reason played a major role in the ensuing intellectual stagnation of Muslims. A second factor for this intellectual crisis of Muslims was the supposed closing of the ‘doors’ of Ijtihad’, creative reflection on and application of Islamic teachings in new contexts...

    Beyond the Moderate and Radical in Indian Islam
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

     The regime of reform became common to both the Barelvis and the Deobandis, following the model of early Islam which was adopted by them both. The problem of the loss of pluralism starts from there: till that model of early Islam heavily infused with Arab cultural traditions gets questioned, there is no point pitting moderate Barelvis against the radical Deobandis....

    Science and Religion
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Speaking historically, belief without a good rational basis or evidence may have been a necessity in the past, but today, this is neither necessary nor a good thing. Today blind belief is more harmful than blind rejection but acceptance on a rational basis is not only good but indispensable to leading a truly “moral” life with values that are transcendental and not merely utilitarian.  Religion gave us concepts and moral principles that were far beyond the capacity of human minds to fully comprehend their utility and role in leap frogging their society on the scale of civilization.....

    Islam and the Future of Tolerance

    The Quran, like any other text (religious as well as other) can be interpreted in diverse, often mutually-contradictory, ways. If radical Islamists champion a violence-driven, politics-centric interpretation of their faith, many Muslim reformists articulate diametrically different interpretations of Islam, which are rooted in a quest for peace. What people read into a text depends heavily on their cultural and ideological baggage....
