    The War Within Islam

    There Is a Dire Need for Suitable Legislation to Implement the Madina Model in Pakistan
    Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani

    The non-Muslim prisoners of war, who were captured after the Battle of Badr, were offered freedom in exchange for teaching people in Madina. Similarly, Madina’s foreign policy revolved around establishing peaceful relations with other tribes and nations. If a tribe decided to remain neutral, its decision was respected. Today, when non-Muslims in Pakistan are told that the ruling party is interested in implementing the Madina model in our beloved country, many of them are in favour of the idea as they know that they will finally be treated equally.....

    How Long It Would Take To Get Every Muslim To Hajj? At Least 581 Years

    Other critics say Mecca is already at capacity during the hajj, and expansion efforts have come at the cost of Islam’s cultural heritage and the spirituality of the pilgrimage. Several historic Islamic sites were destroyed in recent years to make way for luxury high-rise hotels and malls that cater only to wealthy pilgrims. These developments dominate the Kaaba, the cube like structure at the centre of the Grand Mosque that is circled by pilgrims and that is considered to be the House of God....

    God Has Nothing to Do With These Man-Manufactured Canards Meant To Swell the Hypermarkets of Religion
    Swami Agnivesh

    It is demeaning for women to beg to be accommodated in a priest-controlled, man-centred, religious establishment. Christian women, likewise, must exercise their right to un-mediated access to God. God has nothing to do with these man-manufactured canards meant to swell the hypermarkets of religion. To wish to be accommodated somewhere on its margins is an insult to oneself....

    Naipaul’s Observations on South Asia Are Insulting, But May Not All Be Off the Mark
    Khaled Ahmed

    According to him, Islam is in its origin an Arab religion. Islam is not simply a matter of conscience or private belief. It makes imperial demands. A convert’s world view alters. His holy places are in Arab lands. His idea of history alters. The convert has to turn away from everything that is his. The disturbance for society is immense, and even after a thousand years, can remain unresolved; the turning away has to be done again and again....

    A Better Approach Would Be To Test The Syrian Government’s Ability To Embark On A New Course Than More War
    Jimmy Carter

    Western countries, including the United States, should re-engage incrementally with the Syrian government. They can start by reopening their embassies in Syria, since Western diplomats’ absence from Damascus has led to missed opportunities. The West should also abandon the goal of regime change and temper expectations of democratic transition in Syria in the short-to-medium term. Instead, the focus should be on patiently building democracy....

    Kazi Wadud Nawaz

    The Muslim Ummah of the present era can regain its lost honour, authority and glory only through the unconditional practice of righteousness. The honourable rank and position were attained by the Muslim community in the past through righteousness and can only be regained through practising it in future.  The Holy Qur'an and Allah's Messenger (pbuh) have repeatedly stressed on proper utilisation of ‘Taqwa' as the most powerful instrument for reshaping human nature, remoulding morality and spiritual horizon of the believers. ...

    And so, the people of the sub-continent remain divided, despite the fact that the majority of Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, and others never wanted partition in the first place. The key to peace and love in the region is to explain to people on both sides of the border the truth behind partition and the reality that it was the result of the selfish politics of a few leaders. It is time the region embraced Mashriqi’s ideology of unity, regardless of faith or colour. This is the key to bringing peace in the region and the world....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Unknown to the world is that Yemenis are being killed just because they don't share the ideology. For the past three months, Saudi Arabia has been using cluster bombs to kill Zaydi Muslims. Under international law any military aggression against another country and its people can never be justified. But of course the world's media and the private club of world leaders have kept silent on such tragedies. Is it because Saudi Arabia has the money, powerful friends and oil that it does not have to abide by international laws? The rulers of Saudi Arabia got away with 9/11 where seven hijackers were from Saudi Arabia….

     
    Islamic Ideology

    It is a ritual on the part of Muslims to finish reading or listening to the entire Quran during this month regardless of their level of understanding.  Sometime, even those who recite the Quran in their melodious voice do not understand what they are reciting. The guidance comes when we know what the guidance is and what it is all about. So we need to focus on the process of understanding the Quran in whatever language we speak or understand in addition to our readings in Arabic language….

    Almost every system of the world has gone through a slow but steady evolutionary process, where it has been continuously refined with the passage of time. But in Pakistan, this does not seem to be the case. Here, the proceedings are not only irrational, but against the teachings of the Holy Quran and its spirit of Ijtehad (independent reasoning)....

    When It Comes to Sex Crimes in Pakistan, Is It Better to Remain Silent?
    Hashim Bukhari

    Until social views regarding an issue do not change, it is impossible to have law enforcing institutions combating the problem. Just like honour killings are tolerated by law enforcement institutions because they are tolerated by society, the cover up of sex crimes and the lack of legal help available to victims are part of the same story. A lot of steps need to be taken in a direction that Pakistan is not even yet pointing its nose towards, to install the machinery required for the prevention and management of sex crimes, which involves allowing the victims access to justice and their rehabilitation....

    Ali Mamouri

    Wahhabism, the major Salafi movement founded by Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab in the Arabian Peninsula, employed the notion of jihad for the first time in the modern history of Islam to spread religious preaching and control among Muslim communities. From the second half of the 18th century to the late 19th century, the followers of Wahhabism spread their ideology among tribes in the peninsula and neighboring regions, in Iraq and the Gulf, imposing their ideology forcefully if necessary....

    At least 90% of married Egyptian women between the ages of 15 and 49 have undergone FGM, a practice that continues to cause an unknown number of deaths. In Tunisia – often seen as a liberal beacon in the region – 47.2% of women have suffered domestic violence; in Egypt, 99.3% of women have experienced sexual harassment. Saudi Arabian women of any age need the permission of a male legal guardian to travel, marry, work or access education, and must wear abaya robes and headscarves in public....

    How ISIS Crippled Al-Qaida
    Shiv Malik

    Today, Maqdisi counts the leader of al‑Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahiri, as a personal friend, and he is held in the highest esteem by the rest of al-Qaida’s regional heads, from North Africa to Yemen. His numerous books and pamphlets are required reading for Islamic militants around the world, who eagerly follow the latest proclamations on Maqdisi’s website, the Pulpit of Monotheism and Jihad. But he may be best known for personally mentoring Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who founded the organisation that would later become Isis, while the two men were jailed together on terrorism charges in Jordan in the mid-1990s. Zarqawi was released in 1999 and, after swearing allegiance to al-Qaida, went on to become one of the most notorious figures in postwar Iraq, unleashing a brutal campaign of sectarian terror, which led Maqdisi to publicly upbraid his most famous student in a series of devastating public critiques....

    Prof. Henry Francis B. Espiritu, New Age Islam

    Taking into consideration his philosophico-theological milieu, Hazrat Imam Al-Ghazali needed to articulate his defence of the orthodox Islamic views of faith and conduct, in the midst of the imminent danger of disintegration of the once stable Sunni Abbasid Caliphate as an aftermath to the onslaught of Shi’ite rebellions against it, the divisive quarrels between formalistic doctors of the Shari’ah law and antinomian Islamic mystics (Sufis), as well as the growing fascination of Greek philosophy among Islamic intelligentsias. He stood his ground against any dilution of what he perceives as the orthodox Sunni understanding of faith and morals from the onslaught of scepticism and agnosticism that characterized the works of other Islamic philosophers.....

    Given the horrors that continue to be committed in the name of Islam by some self-styled ‘Islamic groups in different parts of the world today, it is hardly surprising that many non-Muslims have serious misgivings about Islam and those who claim to follow it.
