    Division of Knowledge between Religious and Secular in the Madrasas Must Be Abolished  اسلام کے مسلسل زوال کا سد باب کرنے کے لئے مدارس میں مذہبی اور سیکولر کے درمیان علم کی تقسیم ختم کرنا ضروری
    Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

    لہذا، اسلام کے مسلسل زوال کی لہر کا سد باب کرنے کے لئے تمام عالمگیر سائنس اور علوم کے حصول کو انسان کے لئے خدا کی امانت سمجھنے کی ضرورت ہے۔ اور اس کا حصول عالمگیر، سیکولر اور سائنسی علوم کی تمام شاخوں کو اسلامی مدارس میں شامل کرکے ہی ممکن ہے ، تاکہ ان اسلامی اداروں سے فارغ التحصیل طلباء سیکولر تعلیمی اداروں میں جاکر ڈاکٹر، انجینئر، وکیل، اکاؤنٹنٹ اور دیگر شعبوں کے ماہر بننے کے لائق ہو سکیں اور اس طرح اسلامی تہذیب کی بنیادیں دوبارہ زندہ کر سکیں۔ مدارس کے نصاب کے وسیع ترین فقہی مواد کو جو کہ قرون وسطی میں منجمد ہے ایک بنیادی 'مذہبی' موضوع میں سمیٹا جا سکتا ہے جس میں ایک اچھا مسلمان بننے کے لئے قرآنی پیغام کے عالمگیر پہلوؤں اور کچھ خدمت خلق کی تعلیمات کو شامل کیا گیا ہو۔

    The Beauty and Wisdom of the Sufi Teaching on 'Tawakkul' or Divine Surrender
    Prof. Henry Francis B. Espiritu, New Age Islam

    The reason why I sometimes wanted to declare my “independence” from God is my feeling that there are many things that are going-on in my life that I cannot understand, and I sometimes feel that if I am the one truly in-charge of my life, then all will be well. However, when I looked back at my past and saw for myself the wrong directions I had taken and the mistaken decisions I had made, and the many heartbreaks and complications that came due to my stupid decisions, I cringed at the idea of my seeking “independence” from God; and right there and then, I sincerely repent of my arrogance and confess with utter humility that God is still the God of Divine Wisdom Who holds my very life in the Palm of His Hands….

    Historicism or Historical Methodology Is Vital to the Evolution of Progressive Islamic Theology: A Contribution to the Ongoing NAI  Debate on the Possibility of Reformation within Islam
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    To put it simply, Historicism in Islamic studies connotes an intellectual approach for the contextualisation of the Qur’anic texts in order to produce accurate explanations. In other words, it implies that what happened in the past, should be discussed and elucidated in terms of when it happened. Even the early Islamic historians like Ibn Khaldun employed this scientific methodology and remarkably advanced it in his seminal work “Muqaddama”. He referred numerous Islamic traditions back to the pre-Islamic customs of what is known as “al-Arab al-Jahili” (Arab in the era of ignorance)……

    Empowering Muslim Women for a Better Tomorrow
    Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

    In today's increasingly global world, the stakes are higher than ever—for everyone. Societies that limit women's educational and employment opportunities and their political voice get stuck in a downward spiral. They are poorer, more fragile, have higher levels of corruption, and are more prone to extremism. To those opposed to reformist ideals, let us remind them of Iqbal’s assertion: “[t]he teaching of the Qur’an that life is a process of progressive creation necessitates that each generation, guided but unhampered by the work of its predecessors, should be permitted to solve its own problems.”...

    Put Every Effort First Into Establishing Peace—Peace At Any Cost
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

    This principle is taught in Islam, too. It was exemplified in the life of the Prophet Muhammad. For instance, in the case of the Hudaibiya Treaty, the Prophet agreed to the conditions set by his opponents, and in this way secured peace. The Quran refers this treaty as Itmam-e Naymat (48:2). This means that the treaty signed at Hudaibiya was a sign of completion of God’s favour to the Prophet. Why does God call the treaty Itmam-e Naymat? This is because now that peace had been established because of the treaty, it provided the opportunity to do other, constructive things, using peaceful methods....

    Quran is Not the Source of All Problems but It Must Be Brought within the Ambit of History
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    However, the reason that Hassan Radwan gives for historicizing the Quran is simplistic and problematic. Firstly, it is not true that one cannot beat the traditionalists in the game of selective quotation from Quranic passages supporting moderate and liberal voices. Scholars, both modern (like Amina Wadud) and traditional (like Fazlur Rahman) have shown how a different hermeneutical reading of the Quran is possible: one that is consistent with a modern and liberal worldview. It is true that in most of the Muslim countries, such interpretations have either remained marginal or have altogether failed....

    The Sufis: Islam’s Anti-Terrorists

    Sufi orders formed in the ninth and tenth centuries as spiritual movements to bypass the legalism of the Ulema and the worldliness and luxury of the caliphate. At a time when Islam was becoming dogmatic, claiming that Muhammad’s religion was the only true faith and that the Qur’an was the only valid scripture, Sufis saw God everywhere, even in pagan traditions. At a time when the Ulema had closed the gates of Ijtihad, regarding revelation as complete, Sufis sought new revelations from God. At a time when the Ulema preached a God of law, Sufis spoke of God as love....

    Islam’s Reform:  Can Passages of the Quran Be Cherry-Picked — To Embrace What Is Appealing and To Skirt around What Is Not? That Is the Question
    Javed Anand

    But now enters a British Muslim, Hassan Radwan. In an article recently published by the online portal New Age Islam, he makes an altogether radical prescription for salvaging Islam from “the hard-line literalists undermining the soul of a loving, universal creed”. According to him, “Liberal and progressive interpretations depend mostly on nuanced readings of the Quran and Sunna, or forcing new meanings out of them. But by playing the extremists’ game of interpreting the texts, we allow them a semblance of legitimacy. We also give them the opportunity to come back with theological workarounds”. So, what is to be done? Radwan’s answer: “We Muslims need to take the bold step of challenging the very idea that the Quran and Sunna are infallible.” But how can the Quran, the word of God, be fallible? Simple. “The Quran is not the speech of God”, he maintains, quoting several modern-day Muslim scholars as also quite a few from the early period of Islam in support. According to Radwan, once Muslims accept that the Quran is not the Word of God, they can “unashamedly cherry-pick” from among the Quranic verses, accepting the good ones and rejecting the bad. Like the Christian reformists did 500 years ago?...

    Refuting ISIS While Interpreting the Quranic Verse ‘Kill the Mushrikin Wherever You Find Them’
    Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    The fact that the biggest terrorists since the advent of Islam were the Kharijites, who used Islamic titles, appearances and mercilessly killed the rightly guided caliphs and Muslims, is also that ISIS as neo-Kharijites have adopted the same tactics to kill the modern-day Muslims and non-Muslims living under the peace-pact environment. These neo-Kharijites have shattered the true image of Islam, committed heinous crimes and distorted the historical fact of the rightly guided caliphate. In their mouthpiece “Rumiyah” magazine, they repeatedly misinterpret the war-related verses for terrorist propaganda and recruitment; it is, therefore, our responsibility as Muslims to correctly interpret those verses in a bid to thwart their ambitions....

    There is of course another way to look at the spending trend of this era. The people, who pay heavy taxes and are engaged in a time demanding and stressful job, need change and recreation to regain their energy with recreation, entertainment and travel – none forbidden in Islam. The Qur’an only forbids an obsessive craving to spending money with complete disregard of one’s social responsibilities. Such people, the Qur’an says, have no faith in God or the hereafter and are dominated by the Satan….

    When we defend our secular ideals, we can afford to do so with the religious zeal that only sacred principles could inspire. Dualism is a function of a theology that sees man and nature as inherently evil and at odds with the superior spiritual and sacred dimension. Islam does not recognize this dichotomy. For many Muslims, the political philosophy that set the trajectory towards the creation of the United States is the greatest reconciliation of man’s nature and God’s will....

     
    Islamic Ideology

    It Is Completely Wrong To Say That in Islam Blasphemy Is a Crime That Merits Capital Punishment
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan New Age Islam

    There is no such sentence in the Quran or in the Hadith. So, this claim that a person who blasphemes the Prophet should be killed is based entirely on Qiyas or Ijtihad. But, as pointed out earlier, in this matter, Qiyas and Ijtihad are not enough. For such a claim there must be a Nass, a textual reference in the Quran or Hadith, to support it, but since there is no such clear Nassin either of these two sources, it is completely wrong to say that in Islam blasphemy is a crime that merits capital punishment. The claim that blasphemy is a crime that merits capital punishment is the opinion of some Fuqaha or scholars of Muslim jurisprudence, but the mere opinion of these scholars is not enough to validate this claim of theirs....

    In the perception of many Americans who are, if anything, more afraid of Islam today than before, the Sharia Law is inhuman and a threat to American civilization and must be banned. The perception, based on Islamophobic literature is reinforced by ISIS’s justification of its horrendous crimes by the Sharia Law of Islam. The American Muslims on the other hand glorify Sharia Law of Islam as a treasure-chest of noble rulings, without realizing that in the hands of the terror outfits and their ideologues of this era it has lost all its nobility and became an evil institution that is justifiably dreaded and abhorred by the lay Americans...
