Moreover, the concept of festivals in Islam is sharing the joys and bounties bestowed by God with the neighbours and the poor and the needy. Eid is not complete without distribution of Sadaq-e-Fitr and Zakat to the needy and the poor….

There is no place for compulsion in terms of religion. Each individual has equal opportunity to practice religion, grow in spirituality, advance in terms of career and other necessities of life. Any act of oppression and injustice committed towards any Indian individual is punishable in the Indian court of Justice, the disloyalty of which is also an act against Indian nationalism….

    The food spread gave me an excuse to ask him about qurbani…how many goats were sacrificed in his home that Eid morning?

    "None." said Nizami sahib. And his answer took me by surprise. As all along, one had heard that sacrifice /qurbani was a must. Of course, for those who could afford it and surely this family could.

    Perhaps, seeing me look somewhat bewildered, he continued, “For the last 74 years I haven't had any qurbani done. Because in keeping with the Sufi practice before the day ends we distribute all money so that when we retire for the night we're penniless ….we live day to day and with just the minimum. And whatever donations are given to the Dargah, they are distributed that very day, nothing remains for tomorrow. Who's seen tomorrow! Tell me who’s seen tomorrow or the day after! This is what our forefathers have been practising all along. But, yes, our relatives whose wives have jewellery do not fit into this category. But I haven't married, and so there's no wife and no jewellery!"….

    Qawwali as a form of devotional music was created by the renowned Indian post and musician and a disciple of Sufi Nizamuddin Awlia, Amir Khusrau with the help of his teacher Pandit Gopal Nayak in the 13th century.

    Maulana Tauqir Raza Barailvi: So, if according to the Bill, Triple Talaq leads to punishment, this should be welcomed. We used to say that Talaq occurs even if it is pronounced in the state of anger or intoxication, but some people refused to accept it. Now since the Bill has passed, they have confirmed that the one who pronounces Triple Talaq will be punished for three years; which means they will have to consider Triple Talaq to be valid as three (and final divorce). In this way we have won but we don’t understand why the people are opposing the Bill or is there something else?

    Indian Muslim Clergy to Counter ISIS Propaganda: But they should go beyond rhetoric to a genuine counter-narrative that refutes Jihadism based on traditional Islamic theology

    The clergy is required to counter the exclusivist Jihadi theology of violence and supremacism which is primarily based on the traditional Islamic theology of consensus of all schools of thought. This has to be done through a counter-narrative based on a new inclusivist theology of peace and pluralism. But to do that the clergy will have to work towards evolving a new theology that is different from the traditional theology taught in madrasas. It is this age-old theology that is used by Jihadis to propagate their message. 

    It cannot be stressed enough that the reason Jihadis have been able to capture the imagination of thousands of our youth the world over is that they are not saying anything new. They are simply showing a way to practice what the ulema (religious scholars) have been preaching. The Jihadi narrative is the traditional Islamic theological narrative of Islam domination over all other religious beliefs, and eradication of what it considers the biggest crimes humanity can commit, particularly shirk, polytheism or idol worship, and kufr, rejection of the prophethood of Hazrat Mohammad (pbuh). All the most eminent scholars of Islam from Imam Ghazali (11th-12th century) to Imam Ibn-e-Taimiya (13th-14th century), Mujaddid Alf-e-Saani Sheikh Sirhindi (16th-17th century), Shah Waliullah Muhaddis Dehlavi (18th century) have shown a vision of political Islam that was finally given a more definite form in the 20th century by Maulana Syed Abul A’la Maududi, Hassan al-Banna, and Syed Qutb. The Jihadi ideologues of the 21st century may be stressing some parts of this traditional narrative more vigorously and downplaying some other aspects. But they are not saying anything that is entirely new or radically different.

    Jihadi literature has not dropped from the sky all of a sudden. This is not the creation of Osama bin Laden or so-called “Khalifa” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Their narrative of world domination, fighting those who do not accept the message of Islam is basically what is taught in all our madrasas. The definition of Jihad as fighting those who do not accept the oneness of God and prophethood of Mohammad (pbuh) is found in books of every school of Sunni fiqh (jurisprudence), be it Hanafi, Malaki, Shafei or Hanbali. Indeed, even Shia theology does not differ much with Sunnis in matters of political Islam. They too want world domination for Islam and desire to subdue all non-Muslims.
