    Islam Is a Tender, Beautiful Path toward Unconditional Love
    Daliah Merzaban

    Sufism is a spiritual psychology that calls on me to be a constant witness to my states. It involves zooming out of my thoughts, feelings, emotions and sensations and observing them from a more objective vantage point. I acknowledge the grip that shame and fear had/has on me, as well as a mix of envy, pride and resentment. Then, slowly and gently, they are transformed in the alchemy that is Zikr, the repetition of Divine names and attributes that transports us into another realm of conscious awareness....

    Women Being Tortured For Demanding Basic Rights in 'Reformist' Mohammed Bin Salman's Saudi Arabia
    Hana Al-Khamri

    But until recently, despite being abused, harassed and at times jailed, most Saudi women's rights activists were managing to avoid the full force of the regime's violence due to their high socioeconomic status. Their skin colour and religious and tribal identity were also playing a role in determining the level of abuse and harassment they were subjected once they were arrested. While undocumented female migrants and poor, underprivileged Saudi citizens were treated abominably in the kingdom's prisons....

    One Person’s Terrorist Is Often another’s Martyr
    Dipankar Gupta

    Imam Husayn, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad, also died without offering any resistance. He too was aware that he was heading towards dangerous terrain but he still felt he had to give peace a chance. This is why, among the Shias, Imam Husayn is considered to be the “Lord of Martyrs”. Likewise, in the Christian faith, St Sebastian was a true martyr. There he stood in the public square, with folded hands and bended knees, submitting quietly to stoning by a wild mob.....

    What Is Driving Pakistan’s Crackdown on Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan?
    Hannan R. Hussain

    As long as the government overlooks Tehreek-e-Labbaik’s ideological motivations, it is difficult to construe nationwide arrests as a lasting solution. The current status of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws ensures that any religious outfit can allege blasphemy and stage violent sit-ins unpunished. In the event of such an occurrence, the state must decide between amending these laws to establish its writ, or continuing to surrender the rule of law to the demands of religious mobs....

    Pakistan Army Will Broker Some Sort of a Truce between the Government and the Islamists
    Sankar Sen

    It is likely that the Army will broker some sort of a truce between the government and the Islamists. The army is apparently playing on the backfoot because the agitators have arraigned the Army Chief, General Qamar Bajwa, because of pro-Ahmedi leanings. As things stand, there will be no change or dilution of blasphemy laws in Pakistan, and Imran Khan will have to beat a quiet retreat....

    In Palestine, Women Struggle Against Gendered Violence by Their Own Society and By the Israeli Occupation
    Yara Hawari

    The international community often likes to spin the issue with gendered violence in Palestine as if it's an "Arab problem" and Palestinian women need saving from Palestinian men. Such orientalist discourse propagates colonial views and white saviour-complex urges that are used to justify humanitarian interventionism. It is a frequently overlooked fact that Jewish women suffer from similar rates of gender-based violence within Israeli society....

    Protecting the Prophet’s Sanctity (Tahaffuz-e-Namus-e-Risalat) And Tackling Tehreek-i-Labbaik In Pakistan: حماية حرمة النبي عليه السلام ومواجهة تحريك لبيك باكستان: ملاحظة خطيرة
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    يمد معظم علماء الدين في باكستان وحتى في الهند تطبيق قوانين التجديف على غير المسلمين الذين يعيشون في البلدان الإسلامية. واتفق على ذالك ليس فقط مولوي خادم حسين الرضوي زعيم '' تحريك لببيك باكستان'' أو مولوي سميع الحق الذي قُتل مؤخراً وكان من زعماء "حركة طالبان باكستان" بل أيضا علماء الدين من البريلوية والديوبندية والمفتيين جميعهم. يقولون إن على الحكومة الإسلامية أن تنفذ كل من يهين الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم سواء كان مسلما أو غير مسلم. وهذا في الواقع ينبع من الإشارة إلى ما رواه البخاري في صحيحه: "من سب نبيا فاقتلوه" (البخاري)

    Islamic Ingenuity Built the Modern Scientific Order: Science Would Not Have Got Here At All without Muslim Scientists
    Kathleen Crowther

    The science that descended from Copernicus — the origins of modern Western science — are the product of international, multilingual, multicultural exchange and collaboration, with a special debt to Muslims. Restrictions on such exchange will ultimately damage science. We did not get where we are on our own. We would not have got here at all without Muslim scientists. And we still need each other....

    India’s New Curriculum May Herald the Destruction of Secularism and Pluralism in the Country
    Alex Traub

    Though the updates to the federal textbooks have been moderate so far, a BJP victory in next year’s general election would likely lead to greater changes. Crucial policy documents of the government education department are over ten years old, and their replacements are expected soon. In March, a Reuter’s article revealed that a federally appointed committee of scholars and bureaucrats is working on a report intended as a basis for rewriting textbooks along extreme Hindu nationalist lines. More changes can also be expected at the state level. Arun Yadav, a media adviser for the BJP government of the state of Haryana, told me that the local administration is planning to change its books to resemble those of Rajasthan....

    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....

    The Message of Ramadan: Do Greater Jihad’ To Resist Temptation, Combat One's Own Evil Traits and Imperfections
    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    Islam has a beautiful word to describe this war against man’s carnal instincts. It is called jihad. 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....

    Ramazan Ceasefire in J&K: This Conciliatory Practice Requires the Ulema in Kashmir Not To Sanction Any Religiously-Motivated Militant Act
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    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).....

    The Folly of the ‘Expert

    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....

    The Last Prophet—the Paragon of Mercy in the Quranic Light
    Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    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?
    Mushtaq Ul Haq Ahmad Sikander, New Age Islam

    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....

    Books and Documents

    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. Unlike atheists, theists believe there’s someone to accompany them in life and death, to pray to and thank for. They also have something to hope for after death....

    The Holy Prophet once said “Al-Kasib, Habibullah” i.e. the worker is Allah’s friend.

All legal and morally permitted fields are open and one should sow the seeds and reap the fruit....

    Recognising the Basic Oneness Can Facilitate a More Appreciative Attitude towards Other Faiths

    Recognising this basic oneness can facilitate a more appreciative attitude towards other faiths while also helping us recognise that religion ought to be something that we ourselves embody, in terms of leading an ethical and God-oriented life (reflected in love for God and for all fellow-creatures), rather than just being a set of dogmas to blindly believe in and rituals to mechanically perform....

     This was truly interfaith harmony in action: A Hindu and a Muslim woman bound together by a relationship based on love and mutual service that began more than half a century ago and is still going strong!

I don’t suppose Uma and Bibi Jaan have ever heard of the phrase ‘interfaith harmony’, but that’s something they’ve been living out together, over many, many years!...

    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. ...

    It pained him to think of how he had so much of his life trying to reform others but with no success. One day, tired of these haunting memories, he turned to God and poured out his heart: “Lord, I’ve wasted my entire life! 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.”...
