Source: - DAWN.COM AT the magnificent St Peter’s Square in Rome recently, Pope Francis welcomed a group of unusual guests: members of Nahdlatul Ulema (NU) from the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country, Indonesia. The head of the delegation, Sheikh Yahya Cholil Staquf, gave the pontiff documents outlining the vision of a “humanitarian Islam” his organisation has been promoting. The tenets of this vision reject Islamism — the politicised version of Islam that aims to establish the caliphate as a political system, and to make Sharia the law of the land, despite the diversity in modern societies. It also includes a proposal that is quite new and ambitious: that Muslims should stop calling non-Muslims ‘kafirs’. This is necessary, the Indonesian Sheikh Staquf said, so t

#SrijanTalks, Featured, Know Islam, Videos
In this very interesting conversation, Shri Arif Mohammad Khan and Shri Sanjay Dixit discuss and debate on the desirability and possibility of reforms within Islam. The historical context of falasafa, and ishtehad in the Abbasid Empire, and the influence of Al Ghazali and Ibn Taiymiyyah in killing ishtehad, and finishing off the falasafa school (the Tahqiqis), leading to the current situation are also touched upon.

If you make any effort, that is studying it, you are like a God almost; you are so praised, so celebrated all the times. Obviously that felt good, that felt great and that, to be honest, lasted the whole time I was a Muslim, and that felt pretty amazing and I could see people wanting that more and more, that feels good, I want some more. That was one of the things that were so great; the sense of community was phenomenal and lasted also until I de-converted. This was huge, a huge attraction and I think it goes a long way to keep people in the Islamic faith for such a long t...

Source: - BBC.CO.UK The majority of Britons questioned in a survey believe Islam is not compatible with British values. The poll also found almost a third of those asked believe Islam is a violent religion and promotes acts of violence in the UK. However, it also suggests that younger people have a better understanding of Islam, compared to older people. Just over two thousand British adults were questioned online by ComRes for the charity Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association. Asked about their understanding of the traditions and beliefs of Islam, 41% of 18 to 24-year olds said they had a good understanding compared to just 27% of those aged over 45. When asked if they felt Islam promotes peace in the UK, 42% of adults aged between 18 to 24 agreed, compared to an average of ...

Source: - https://conservativepapers.com Oslo, Norway: “The world’s largest gang of thugs, murderers, and rapists is masquerading as a religion of peace,” says Adrian Stavig, a resident of Oslo.
