The same goes for Mr. Khashoggi’s disappearance. ...

    Rabi’a Basri is a classical example of how faith and love can set you free. She was the first female Sufi Saint of Islam, Rabia al-Adawiyya, also known as Rabi’a Basri.

Her reputation excels that of many Muslim men within the early days of Sufism....

    Fasting Is the Way of All the Revealed Religions
    S. Arshad, New Age Islam

    Their teachings might have been distorted over time but indeed they belong to the category of revealed religions. The Quran gives testimony to this fact. Different religions had different ways of fasting. In some religions, ways of fasting were distorted and were directed towards deities and false gods but the presence of ritual of fasting in them hint towards the fact that originally they were followers of prophets of God and revealed religions....

In fact Islam repeatedly emphasizes it and calls it the ‘greater jihad’, The "greater struggle" is the personal one: the struggle to resist temptation, combat one's own evil traits and imperfections, and become a better person in God's sight.  the King James Bible speaks of it as seeking 'The Kingdom of God' and the Hindu spiritual classic Bhagavad Gita represents it in the battle of Kurukshetra....

    Given that the decision has been taken to cooperate and help the peace-loving Muslims observe Ramzan—the 30-day-long festival—in a peaceful environment, it should be welcomed as a great bonhomie. Now, it is incumbent on the Kashmiri Muslims to segregate the forces that bring a bad name to Islam by resorting to mindless militancy and violence. Thus, the trust deficit between New Delhi and Kashmir which has greatly widened for decades can be minimized now.....

    Rebuttal to Zakir Musa’s False Premise of Pitching Democracy and Secularism against Islam
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Pitching democracy or secularism against Islam is the key jihadist narrative that has been flogged off by the false ideologues of Islam—from Zawahiri to Zakir. But on the contrary, there is substantial evidence in the Quran and Sunnah (the Prophetic traditions) to make it possible for us to adopt both democracy and secularism as compatible to Islamic principles. It is sufficient to quote these two verses of the Qur’an: “Those who respond to their Lord and attend to their prayers; who conduct their affairs by mutual consultation and spend out of what We have provided for them” (42:38).....

    Confronting her dark secrets and reflecting on some of the many mistakes she had made hadn’t been at all easy. But at the end of it she was very glad that she went through the process, for two valuable lessons it had helped her learn—the need to develop a close relationship with God, and the need for this relationship to be expressed in the form of an ethical life, lived for a purpose higher than a mere paid holiday....

    It should be remembered that Allah Almighty has called Himself ‘Lord of the worlds’, while for the holy Prophet (peace be upon him), He has used ‘Mercy for all worlds’. This tells us that he whose Lord is Allah Almighty, the Prophet is mercy for him. Thus, his mercy is absolute, complete, and in its entirety. It includes everything and it is for everything.….

    Is Violence the Only Way Out?

    The vicious cycle of death and violence needs to be broken and fractured. It starts with the state, which needs to rein in their armed forces that are sometimes responsible for pushing youth towards insurgency. Then resistance leaders and civil society too have a job to make youth understand that besides violence there are hundreds of ways, methods and campaigns through which they can make their voices heard all over the world....

    Atheism’s depressing worldview is in contrast to that of the theistic understanding where death is linked to the hope of being welcomed by a loving God and the possibility of a life of peace and fulfilment in the Hereafter.

    Why Shah Waliullah’s Thesis should be Repudiated by Indian Muslims
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The Muslim must become puritan in order to relive the supposed lost glory of Islam. For this, purging itself of all accretions and all traces of syncretism was to become the sine qua non of Indian Muslims. As a political project, this tradition continues to this day through the activities of Deobandis, the Ahle Hadees and even the Barelwis. More than anything else, Shah Waliullah’s writings seem to be a fatal recipe for the political future of Muslims in India. ...

Trying to change others while never once thinking of changing myself only made me a very bitter person—and it didn’t help make others any better. My desire to change others made people avoid me, and it completely ruined my family.”...
