    قرآن  اللہ کی مخلوق ہے۔ یہ ان آیتوں کا ایک مجموعہ ہے جو ابتدائی مکی دور میں محمد ﷺ پر اس آفاقی مذہب کے لئے ہدایات کے طور پر نازل ہوئی ہیں جو زمین پر حضرت آدم علیہ السلام کی پیدائش سے ہی تمام قوموں کی طرف ایک ہی پیغام کے ساتھ بھیجے جانے والے مساوی حیثیت کے متعدد رسولوں(قرآن136 :2) کے ذریعہ بھیجا گیا ہے۔ لہذا، وہ ابتدائی آیتیں جو ہمیں امن اور ہم آہنگی، حسن معاشرت، صبر، رواداری اور تکثیریت پسندی کی تعلیم دیتی ہیں قرآن کی بنیادی اور تعمیری آیات ہیں۔ یہی اسلام کا بنیادی پیغام ہے۔ لیکن قرآن میں بہت ساری ایسی سیاق و سباق والی آیتیں بھی ہیں جو جو نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم اور آپ کے صحابہ کے لئے سخت اور مشکل ترین حالات سے نمٹنے کے لئے بطور احکام و ہدایات نازل ہوئی تھیں اس لئے کہ مشرکین مکہ اورمدینہ کے اکثر اہل کتاب نے نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے ذریعے آنے والے خدا کے پیغام کو قبول کرنے سے انکار کر دیا تھا اور نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم اور آپ کے چند صحابہ کو نیست و نابود کرنے کا فیصلہ کر لیا تھا ۔ یہ آیتیں عظیم تاریخی اہمیت کی حامل ہیں اور ہمیں یہ بتاتی ہیں کہ ہمارے مذہب کو قائم کرنے میں ہمارے نبی کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کو کیسی ناقابل تسخیر پریشانیوں اور مشقتوں کا سامنا کرنا پڑا تھا۔ لیکن اپنی تاریخی اہمیت کے باوجود 1400 سو سال قبل جب جنگ ختم ہوگئی اور اللہ کے فضل سے اس میں مسلمان فتح یاب ہو گئے تو اب یہ احکام و ہدایات ہمارے لئے قابل اطلاق نہیں ہیں ۔ ہم ابھی کسی جنگ میں نہیں ہیں۔

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    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”....

    Islam and Politics

    There is certainly a need to bridge the chasm which has been created between the Muslim community and the ruling dispensation. Owing to a number of factors, Muslims have thought that the BJP is their enemy number one. This perception needs to change for the very simple and pragmatic reason that no minority can prosper without cooperating closely with the state. But for this there has to be genuine rethinking amongst the Muslims on a number of issues....

    What Does Taqwa Mean?
    What Does Taqwa Mean?
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The methodology that I have followed to derive the meaning of Taqwa was to let the Quran teach me its meaning. This is the methodology that I follow for all my articles. To the best of my knowledge and belief, no other person has derived the same meaning of Taqwa, because no one else follows the same methodology with the same Taqwa or intensity. They follow it loosely, or without adequate Taqwa, which is why their meanings do not fit well the usage of the word in the Quran....

    Islam and Pluralism

    Islamic Ideology

    It is widely recognized that, on the topic of violence, the Qur'an speaks with more than one voice. Some verses speak for peace and others for war. The conventional explanation is that the difference hinges on the migration of the early Muslim community from Mecca to Medina: in Mecca Muslims were persecuted while Muhammad and the Qur'an preached non-violence and tolerance...

    Islamic Ideology

    There are certainly war-related rulings in the Quran and Ahadith, but they are contextual and relevant only for preventing oppression, curbing religious persecutions and gaining religious rights.

    Adjurations in the Quran
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Scholars of Islam have strangely struggled with explaining the adjurations in the Quran when these offer them the opportunity to show their skills of interpretation and understanding of metaphors and of poetic allusions. Some have even wondered “what does Allah mean by swearing by something that is inferior to Him?”!  Others are clearly embarrassed by Allah swearing so often because a man who swears often is looked down upon....

    Cooperating with ISIS or any other “Islamist” terror outfits is forbidden and an act of severe oppression.

    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....
