    Misbahul Huda, New Age Islam

    تم میں خدا نے کیا پیدا کیا ؟ ارادہ و اختیار،تو ان کے پیدا ہونے سے تم صاحب ارادہ۔صاحب اختیار ہوئے یا مضطر،مجبور،ناچار،صاحبو ! تمھاری اور پتھر کی حرکت میں فرق کیا تھا،یہ کہ وہ ارادہ و اختیار نہیں رکھتا اور تم میں اﷲ تعالٰی نے یہ صفت پیدا کی عجب عجب کہ وہی صفت جس کے پیدا ہونے نے تمھاری حرکات کو پتھر کی حرکات سے ممتاز کردیا،اسی کی پیدائش کو اپنے پتھر ہوجانے کا سبب سمجھو یہ کیسی الٹی مت ہے ؟ اﷲ تعالٰی نے ہماری آنکھیں پیدا کیں ان میں نور خلق کیا اس سے ہم انکھیارے (دیکھنے والے) ہوئے نہ کہ معاذ اﷲ اندھے یونہی اس نے ہم میں ارادہ و اختیار پیدا کیا اس سے ہم اس کی عطاکے لائق مختار ہوئے،نہ کہ الٹے مجبور۔

    The Misconstrued Concept of Hijrat and the Position of Indian Ulema
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    No Indian Islamic cleric denies the significance of Hijrat (migration) in the early period of Islamic history. But to some clerics, Hijrat is mandatory (Wajib) even today for the Muslims living in the democratic countries. For liberal democracy is akin to Kufr in their view. Such toxic notions of the Hijrat are actually political tools which the extremist outfits use to further their political ends. Highlighting the Muslim marginalisation in countries like India, the extremist Islamist preachers indoctrinate the gullible Muslim youth mostly belonging to poor Muslim families who can be unconsciously trained to serve their political agendas….

In Pakistan at present, a reasonable estimate based on multiple empirical and journalistic sources suggests that there are between 20,000 and 25,000 madrassas.

    Can the Proposed World Council of Muslim Minorities correct the stereotypical image of Islam?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Then there are Muslim minority contexts which are in the form of historically established communities who have been living together with other communities for centuries. India is an obvious example. Yet, over the years, owing to a number of factors, there has been a growing alienation of the Muslim minority communities. Some reasons for this are internal: there is increasing reliance on particular readings of religious texts which is weaning Muslims away from their shared cultural contexts. But the problem is also from the outside: increasing Islamophobia has meant that Muslims have come to be considered as untrustworthy and their religion as the epitome of backwardness....

    Muhammad Asad’s Idea Of An Islamic State: Presidential Form Of Government Not Khilafat Compatible With Islam In The Modern Age

    Muhammad Asad asks Muslims to take resort to Ijtihad in the formulation of the new Shariah taking into consideration all the necessities and needs of the time and the challenges faced by the modern-day Muslims rather than sticking to Fiqhi deductions made one thousand years ago by the scholars of that time. He says that God wants Muslims to be a thinking community asking in Quran numerous times to think, to ponder and to do research. In other words Quran does not want Muslims to be parrots or a nation devoid of creative thinking....

Materialist evolutionists think there’s no God, no ultimate foundation for ethics, and no ultimate meaning to life.....

    Why Saudi Reforms are a Sham
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    If he is really serious about bringing reforms, then it must start with a deep introspection rather than blaming someone else. And one of the first questions that he needs to ask is how the pernicious ideology of Wahhabism has very nearly destroyed the soul of his country. From the looks of it, one can only say that he is not ready to question anything related to the Wahhabi superstructure. Till the time that happens, MBS and his reforms should only be understood as a mere sham. There comes a time in any nation’s present when it is confronted with its own history. Very often, the present offers two possible ways to deal with the situation: either

    “...[A]fter  I was released and reached home safe, I realized that my mission is to be a witness to the fact that THE LORD ALIVE HEARS OUR PRAYERS AND THAT HE WOULD SURELY ANSWER THEM IN HIS OWN GOOD TIME. I realize that I am a living proof that our God still loves us and cares for us. The One who knew me before I was born, formed me in my mother’s womb and called me to follow Him closely is ever at my side, strengthening me. My whole life has been an experience of His presence walking side by side with me.”...

    Spiritual Meditations

    This situation places an enormous responsibility on people who insist on appearing in public in this distinct manner—for, now they are responsible, in a major way, for the reputation that their religion and community has among others. How they behave in public will play a major role in shaping how others look at their religion and community. It is likely that people who see them will associate their behaviour with the religion that they claim to follow and to their community....

    Why Should an Academic Course on Islamist Terror Rile Muslims?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    We need to differentiate between Islamic and Islamist: the latter only attests the political use of Islam to capture state power where violence is indeed one of the many options. Isn’t this the ultimate aim of Islamists the world over and isn’t it that they have used terror as a method to achieve that end? How do we understand the Taliban and more recently the ISIS except through the lens of Islamist terror? Worldwide, even amongst Muslim scholars, there is now a consensus that it is the ideology of Islamism which needs to be resisted....

It is fear of ‘Zina’ which compels many women, even those with civil divorces to seek an Islamic divorce. Procedural changes in Sharia councils will not diminish their role in spreading this concept; to which they provide the only ‘solution’.”...

    UN High Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad’s Silence on Extremist Groups in Kashmir Is Disappointing
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Rampant violations of human rights are being perpetrated in the Kashmir valley at the hands of extremist groups and separatist leaders who believe in Pakistan’s two-nation theory. But the UN high commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein has brazenly overlooked all this in his 49-page report. Those who do not believe in the radical Islamic concepts like ‘jihad-e-Kashmir’; global Islamic caliphate and Ghazwat-ul-Hind (Islamic battle against India) face fatal discrimination in Kashmir.  Any traditional Kashmiri Muslim who rejects Wahhabism is targeted by extremist groups. But the first-ever UN human rights report on Kashmir maintains deafening silence on this grave violation of human rights…..

    What Survives Of The Authentic Sunna (Practice) Of The Prophet (PBUH)?
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The Kalima Shahida by making us name only Muhammad violates the Quran as the Quran instructs us not to make any distinction between the messengers. The political compulsion was however to make a pointed distinction to keep the Christians and the Jews from qualifying as Muslims without abandoning their faith.

    The political compulsions combined with the bigotry of the scholars appear to have spawned the project of compilation of the Ahadith to help implement the politicised/bigoted version of Islam. It may not therefore be a coincidence, that all the compilers of the six books of Ahadith were contemporaries as all the six books were published in the latter half of the ninth century. The great stress on following the Ahadith to the neglect of the Quran was necessary to bend Islam to the political compulsions and to what the bigots subscribed to......

    Spiritual Meditations

    It is time to change the religious mind-set of people to do just that, and obey the Creator's command that He has forbidden to take life except “Rightfully”. There cannot be a more compelling “Rightful” purpose than maintaining the dignity of “Life” at every stage of its journey in this world, for a sensitive person of sound mind and mature age. In dying there is a concern for others. If David Goodall, a nonbeliever in the After-life, but a believer in Life-after was to lobby Muslims for his cause; he would have echoed 'Iqbal's' thoughts to them:

    Indeed secularism is indispensible in a multi-cultural and multi-religious country like India. Secularism is the beauty of India, mainly because it gives equal respect to all religions and that it is not anti-religious. It is therefore obligatory for the followers of all religions to develop this Indian secularism, for which they shall have to strengthen their peaceful coexistence. Apart from that, we Indians should impart such values to our students, children and people so that can avoid being brainwashed by any anti-Indian secular Muslim or non-Muslim groups....
