    In the Sub-Continent, this debate started with British imperialism (‘British Raj’, 1857-1947). Muslims responded to the imperialism through different means, scholars like Chirag Ali (d.1895), Sir Syed Ahmad Khan (d.1898), Allama Iqbal (d.1938), Abul Kalam Azad (d.1958), Shibli Numani (d.1914), Mumtaz Ali (d. 1974), Syed Mawdudi (d.1979), Amin Ihsan Islahi (d.1997), Abul Hassan Ali Nadwi (d.1999), and others gave them critical response by their scholarly works….

    Mughal intellectuals Abul Fazl and Faizi did not subscribe to the belief that the graves of Hadhrat Nuh pbuh and Hadhrat Sheeth pbuh are situated in Ayodhya and so they are not mentioned in Ain-e-Akbari but the community of Sufis like Hadhrat Muhaddith Dehlvi believed that Hadhrat Sheeth pbuh lived in Ayodhya. That’s why Sufis call Ayodhya Khurd Makkah (small Makkah) and Madinatul Awliya (city of Walis or Sufis)....

    Islam and Politics

    As we are winding down to the end of Ramazan, a note of caution is seriously required, particularly in the context of Jammu & Kashmir. As the jihadists try to mark it as ‘a month of calamity’, the mainstream Muslims must not forget: When the Sahaba said: “Al-YumuYumulMalhama” (today is the day of retaliation), the Prophet (pbuh) strongly rebutted: “La, Al-YaumuYaumulMarhama” (No, today is the day of mercy)....

    There are a number of websites like Jaish-e-Mohammad's weekly online Urdu magazine Haftroza Al-Qalam(al qalamonline.com) which are consistently trying to brainwash the Muslim youth and function as breeding grounds for suicide bombers.

    Interfaith Dialogue

    Philosophers and scholars have tried to understand the nature of God’s existence. For this, the philosophers have presented their ideas based on their independent thinking and perception. Religious scriptures have also dealt with the subject and given some clues about the nature of God. Since the objective of the scriptures was to tell people how they should lead their lives, they did not elaborate much on the topic of God’s nature.  However, they gave some hint about it. As for the Quran, God is described as Lateef, subtle, intangible and transparent. Another attribute of God is light both in the Quran and the Upanishads....

    On Abrogation
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Therefore, all the verses in the previous scriptures that are for fighting against nations simply because the people are “godless”, are abrogated as this is no longer a justifiable reason. The punishments for apostasy, heresy are also not found in the Quran and therefore abrogated. The punishment for adultery is reduced from stoning to death to a hundred lashes. The punishment for homosexuality is undefined and can be reduced to strong social disapproval disallowing only open, brazen and wanton acts. ...

    Radical Islamism and Jihad
    Why have Fatwas against Islamist Terrorism failed as A Counter-Terrorism Tool, Explains Sultan Shahin in a Conference in Birmingham, And Suggests the Kind of Fatwa Required

    Numerous fatwas (edicts) have been issued by ulema (Islamic scholars) across the globe, particularly since 9/11 in a bid to stem the tide of Islamist terrorism. Tens of thousands of ulema have endorsed these fatwas issued by influential institutions of Islamic learning of all sects in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh as well as other parts of the world. When issued, these fatwas inspired great expectations. As perceptive and insightful an observer as Mr. Ziauddin Sardar proclaimed “the beginning of the end of the war of terror” when a hundred thousand Deobandi ulema endorsed a fatwa issued by the hundred-year-old Islamic madrasa in Deoband, India, “unequivocally denouncing terrorism,” in June 2008. Similarly, Sufism-oriented Barailwis, hard-line Salafis, Ahl-e-Hadeesis, have all denounced Islamist terrorism in their separate or joint statements. But terrorist ideology continues to attract our youth, particularly in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. What used to be merely a Pakistan-sponsored secessionist struggle is showing signs of tuning into an Islamist struggle for the establishment of Islamic Sharia through a universal Caliphate, very much redolent of the objectives of the so-called Islamic State or ISIS.  Popularizing the slogan of “Shariatya Shahadat,” a militant leader Zakir Musa, Burhan Wani’s successor, even threatened to kill Hurriyat leaders for calling Kashmir’s separatist movement political and not religious. Calling them “hypocrites, infidels, followers of evil”, the militant had warned to chop off their heads to be hanged in Lal Chowk in Srinagar, “if they create hurdles in the path of making Kashmir an Islamic State”....
