    Allah is the sole source of all knowledge of what is right and what is wrong or what is moral and what is immoral. If we wish to master this knowledge perfectly, it is essential that we orient ourselves perfectly to receive this knowledge. The orientation is by gaining a perfect understanding of the nature of Allah or of all His attributes. Misunderstanding of any attribute leads to a wrong understanding of His Book, of right and wrong, and this is the way Satan misleads and deprives us of becoming perfect Muslim....

    Governments have a history of capitulating to religious lobbies in their quest for vote banks. This includes every shade of government. In my personal recall, the use of gender as bait began with Shah Bano in 1986. Cut to 2014 and the NDA sweep with its avowed anti-Muslim agenda. The best weapon to kill Muslims other than by lynching and torture was to show them as gross violators of women’s rights. Since 2014, words like Triple Talaq, Nikah Halala, and Polygamy etc. have been bandied around with scant understanding of their meaning....

    Lost Legacy of Female Scholars of Islam

    The reforms that took place in the early years of Islam were clearly progressive, changing with the needs of society; however, the more detailed rules that were laid out by the classical jurists only allowed many pre-Islamic customs to continue. These rules reflected the needs, customs and expectations of the society in which they lived, not the progressive reforms that were started during the time of Muhammad. Hence, the trajectory of reform which began at the time of Muhammad was halted in the medieval period through the further elaboration of Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence), which was then selectively codified in the 19th and 20th centuries....

    Why are Muslim Leaders and Clerics So Afraid of Feminism and Critical of the West?
    Mushtaq Ul Haq Ahmad Sikander, New Age Islam

    The deep-rooted prejudices against West and Feminism have been embedded over the last century deeply in the Muslim mind and it will certainly take decades to de-condition the same. But this point needs to be emphasized that not everything Western civilisation and the ideals of Feminism uphold need be accepted in toto. West and Feminism are dynamic and static concepts. They are not the same today as our older generation of Islamic revivalists understood them during colonization....

    Quranic Method of Cognition of Realities

    The basic principles of Islamic Faith, religious ethics, social and family laws and all verses related to Allah's Attributes or ‘Sifat' belong to the category of clear and comprehensible verses (Ayat-e-Muhkamat). Qur'anic verses that point to the miraculous events of the unseen occurring in the worldly life under direct divine intervention beyond the cognitive ability of mankind belong to the category of incomprehensible verses. (Ayat-e-Mutashabihaat) The visible world forms the foundation of the clear and comprehensible domain of the Holy Qur'an (Ayat-e-Muhkamaat) that finds its extension in incomprehensible and non-visible reality (al-Ghayeb) reflected by the allegorical domain of the Holy Qur'an (Ayat-e-Mutashabihaat)....

    The Language of the Quran
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The word Islam and Muslim have a broad meaning in the Quran and these words do not mean that Islam is only the religion of the followers of Muhammad or that Muslim only means those who accept Muhammad as the Messenger of God. Verse 22:78 “It is Allah Who has named you Muslims, both before and in this (Revelation)”. The followers of all previous prophets are also Muslim which is why the verse 2:112 cited above, covers a broad spectrum of people.   However, the common understanding among both the followers of Muhammad and others, is that only the religion brought by Muhammad is Islam and only his followers are Muslim. This common understanding is exploited by the bigots to claim that only the religion taught by Muhammad is Islam and only this religion is the true religion and accepted by God and all others will be the losers.....

    The verse 60:8, according to the accepted view of majority of scholars, is Muhkam and not abrogated. This verse encourages the Muslims not to treat all the people from among non-Muslims including Mushrikin and Kafirin as enemies. It means Allah does not forbid Muslims to be good to those non-Muslims including Mushrikin and Kafirin who really do not fight Muslims in matters of religion and live in peace and justice with Muslims....

    A top Islamic scholar, an inspiration to champions of women’s rights, a military commander riding on camelback, and a fatwa-issuing jurist, Aisha’s intellectual standing and religious authority were astonishing, by the standards of both our own time and hers. Aisha is not the only wife of Muhammad whose life explodes notions of what constitutes a “traditional” Muslim woman. Khadija ran a caravan business in Mecca. A wealthy and successful trader, she was also a twice-widowed single mother, fifteen years Muhammad’s senior, and his boss.....

    The fundamental idea that will help Muslims is that the change is an inevitable part of life. Islam became a global religion because the way Prophet Muhammad taught its principles made his contemporaries into enlightened and empowered people. They became more just in their dealings with others, valued learning, welcomed strangers, discarded superstitions, removed ethnic and racial barriers, gave greater rights to oppressed classes such as women and slaves, their worship was direct and charismatic, and as a result of this dynamism their influence spread all over the known world. Reform means recognizing that the universal empowering teachings of Islam can be expressed successfully according to the maxims of every age....

    ایک زمانہ تھا جب، مدارس تحریک سےاجتماعی طور پر وجود میں آتے تھے۔ مقامی لوگوں کا معمولی چندہ بھی بڑی اہمیت رکھتا تھا۔ رمضان میں باقاعدگی سے گوشوارہ چھپتا تھا، جو عوامی جانچ پڑتال کی راہ کھول دیتا تھا۔ تب لوگ مدارس کو ملّی اثاثہ سمجھتے تھے اور موقع پڑنے پر اس کے دفاع میں اٹھ کھڑے ہوتے تھے۔  1970کی دہائی سے رفتہ رفتہ، مدارس بھی، دُکان کی طرح ، افراد کی ملکیت بنتے گئےجن میں مہتمم کی اجارہ داری ہوتی ہے۔ چندہ بھی ’’باہر ‘‘سے آنے لگا۔ گوشوارہ کی روایت اٹھادی گئی۔جب مقامی چندہ کم یا ختم کیا گیا تو مقامی بچّوں کا جھنجھٹ کیوں پالا جائے، جن کے والدین کبھی بھی آکر دیکھ سکتے ہیں کہ کیا ہورہا ہے۔

In these times the movement of Daesh (“ISIS”) has become a great challenge and grave danger to the countries of the Middle East, in particular Saudi Arabia. Their danger is not restricted just to the Arab world, but extends to all countries and peoples. This movement is only concerned with the destruction of historical monuments and of the Islamic landscape, as is witnessed in the lands of Iraq and Syria. They have transgressed in this matter and treat Muslims as non-believing hostile combatants, as though they are enemies-at-war and their lands hostile territories….”

    An elderly person of her family to whom she related her comfortable Sunnah of Hijrat, reminded her of the “ordeal” of the Apostle, and his only companion during his Hijrat to Madinah, travelling ten times the distance in the desert on foot, escaping the city with their lives in the dead of the night. He referred her to Chapters 9 & 17 of Quran.

    - In a small gathering of friends to welcome back a hajji couple, a Sunnah was enacted by a priestly looking person who was offered the customary sip of Zamzam. He stood up, turned in the direction of Qiblah and gulped the water down, announcing that, that was the established Sunnah of Rasool. Other drinks, he said, the Rasool drank sitting down and not facing the Qiblah.....

    Darul Qazas or Sharia Courts: Why both must be Opposed?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    It must be underlined though that equating this with something like a Sharia court is clearly a misnomer. Courts have the ‘power’ to adjudicate over issues; the Darul-Qaza will have no such power and as such will be more like arbitration councils. To be fair to the AIMPLB, such quasi-judicial bodies do exist in other communities, such as the Khap Panchayats in Western Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. In some tribal areas, these bodies even have legal recognition. Thus, the establishment of Darul Qaza may well within be the ambit of law. Demanding for a ban on Darul Qazas while remaining silent on Khaps is clearly hypocritical. It should also be understood that Darul Qazas have been functioning in this country since at least 1972....

    Defeating Islamism and Jihadism: Evolve a New Theology of Peace, Pluralism and Gender justice, Sultan Shahin asks Muslim States at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    A War on Terror has been raging for 17 years now but we are no closer to defeating Islamist terror. Jihadism continues to attract Muslim youth. This is because the world has not paid enough attention to the ideology of Islamism and Jihadism.

    Mainstream Muslims have considered Islam a spiritual path to salvation, one of the many. Islam aims at reforming society for a peaceful, harmonious, pluralist existence. However, due to certain historical factors, the theology and jurisprudence of Islam that evolved in the 8th and 9th centuries (CE), present Islam as a political, totalitarian ideology of supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance and gender discrimination. It is this theology of violence, exclusivism and world-domination that is taught in madrasas and sustains Islamism. But despite the Islamist violence against peaceful Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the community is still not focussed on the need for evolving a counternarrative of Islam.

     It is imperative that Muslim countries that have signed the UN Charter look into the issue urgently and work towards developing a new theology of peace, pluralism and gender justice. While several countries like Morocco and now Saudi Arabia appear to be moving in this direction, the one country that has made a solid contribution is Turkey. In a decade-long exercise 100 Turkish scholars have managed to limit the number of authentic ahadith to just 1600, out of over 10,000, and provide each hadith with context and suitable interpretation. This book of authentic Hadith has been provided to all mosques in Turkey but I hope it is made available to the global Muslim community in their own languages as soon as possible.

    Allama Iqbal, a poet-philosopher of the South Asian sub-continent had called for the reconstruction of religious thought in Islam almost a hundred years ago. Let us at least start working on it now....
