    جو لوگ شب برأت کا اہتمام کرتے ہیں ان میں سے بھی اکثر لوگوں کو یہ پایا جاتا ہے کہ وہ شب برأت جیسی  مقدس رات کی ناقدری کرتے ہیں اور اسے سڑکوں اور گلیوں  میں گھوم پھر کر ضائع کر دیتے ہیں ۔ یہ سراسراللہ رب العزت کے اس احسان عظمیٰ کی ناشکری ہے جو اس نے شب برأت کی شکل میں ہمیں عطا کی ہے۔ لہٰذا، ہمیں یہ چاہئے کہ اس رات میں ہم اپنے گناہوں سے توبہ و استغفار کریں ، اور اللہ سے مغفرت اس کی رحمت اور نار جہنم سے آزاری کا پرانہ طلب کریں جو کہ اس رات مؤمنوں کے لئے اللہ کا سب سے بڑا تحفہ ہے۔

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Note: As articles on NewAgeIslam.com have pointed out again and again, instructions given in any war lapse with the end of the war. The war-time verses in the holy Quran not only instruct Muslims to kill, but also motivate them, announcing rewards for fighting and punishment for not fighting, i.e., sitting at home, without any valid excuse. All this is quire natural. But at the same time Muslims must also understand that these verses were meant for those wars in the7th century CE and cannot be applicable to us today in the 21st century, 14 centuries after the wars that gave the Prophet and his companions’ victory, establishing Islam on the face of earth. Now our job is simply to see that God’s universal and eternal messages in Quran are available to all the people in their own languages, so they can comprehend it and learn from it. The contextual verses are a part of our glorious history and should be left there, so that we learn from them how near-insurmountable obstacles the Prophet (saw) faced in establishing Islam and leaving us his magnificent legacy. Violent extremists among us have and will continue to use and misuse these contextual verses for their own ends. Let us Muslims not fall in the trap. – Editor

    The other defining characteristics of the “moderates” are to be seen to be questioning the religion, Quran, Allah and the Prophet. They make a virtue of it. They define “literalism” as belief in the entire Quran and make a virtue of arguing for the excising of many verses from the Quran.  The western society is paranoid of Shariat and Jehad. These “moderates” therefore reject the verses of the Quran on these subjects to become acceptable.  Such people will surely sink deeper and deeper into denial until they reach a point of no return. There is neither hope nor cure for them and the word of Allah will come true....

    The creation of Adam and his progeny, distinct from every other creature, in their cognitive abilities, was a great favour of Allah on the progeny of Adam. Further, Allah sent Messengers all through the ages, to guide mankind on the straight path to success in this life and in the Hereafter.  This process of guidance through revelations culminated with Muhammad (pbuh), and the revelation of the Quran containing the perfected and complete religion. With it was also complete the granting of full autonomy to man in making moral choices and therefore the Quran proclaimed, “Let there be no compulsion in religion”....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    But what has come more bluntly in the analysis of the Pakistani media reports, which are based less on proper journalistic investigation than on vociferous emotionalism and a feeling of revenge, is the deep-rooted doctrine of ‘Ghazwat-ul-Hind’, an Islamic expedition against India which is reported in one of the six most authentic collections of Hadith compilations (Sunan al-Nasa’i). Orya Maqbool Jaan, an ultra-puritanical Islamist writer who is a regular columnist with the leading Urdu daily Jang, looks at the Indian surgical strike as the beginning of the battle that the Prophet (pbuh) predicted to his companion, Hazrat Abu Huraira (r.a) i.e. Ghazwat-ul-Hind…

    Do Not Repeat the Mistakes of 1989 in Allowing the Return of Taliban, New Age Islam Editor Sultan Shahin Asks International Community at UNHRC in Geneva

    Mr. President,

    The US is withdrawing from Afghanistan as well as from Iraq and Syria. Inspired by the Taliban declaration of victory, a radicalised terrorist in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, backed by a Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist organisation, attacked an Indian military convoy, killing 40 soldiers. Similar suicide attack killed 27 elite revolutionary guards in Sistan, Iran. Emboldened Jihadists will surely carry out more such attacks in future. The gloating in Islamist circles for having “defeated” both the superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, has reached its peak.

    Mr. President,

    Still fresh in our minds is what happened when the international community abandoned Afghanistan in 1989. Taliban ruled and Al-Qaeda got a safe haven. A series of atrocities including 9/11 and horrors of Islamic State followed.

     In this backdrop, the complacency of the world community in allowing Taliban to govern Afghanistan is inexplicable. Jihadist strength does not come from their soldiers and territories. It comes from an ideology and ideologies cannot be defeated militarily.

    Mr. President,

    The Jihadist ideology is based on very solid foundations in Islamic history, scriptures and theology. Moderate Muslims have not yet succeeded in evolving a satisfactory alternative theology of peace and pluralism to challenge the current theology of violence and exclusion. Even when such a theology evolves, it will take time and effort for it to be established. Mainstream Muslims should be allowed the time and space to work out and propagate a counternarrative. I would, therefore, urge the international community not to repeat the mistakes of 1989 and invite further disasters....
