are we not muslims

March 2, 2011

When  we  claim  the  heritage  of  the  scientific  contribution  of  polymath  ulama  in  the  Sciences(physics, botany, zoology, optics…),  Logic,  experimental  method…  it  is  important  to  note  that  these  were  not  Deobandies  or  Barelwies.

Yet  they – mutawallies: doctors whose profession rests on blood  transfusion,  lawyers  who  can  write  exams  to  practice  in  other  legal  systems,  business  people(men  and  WOMEN!) build  these deobandi, beralwi  apartheid  walls,  CUTTING  UP,  BUTCHERING  ISLAM  and  Guantanamo-ing  all  who  are  not  mini-mees,  especially  the  poor,  the  non fellow-kholvad, non fellow-memon.

Islam AND Muslims Without Borders! Without Apartheid Walls, Passes…

February 23, 2011

Islam AND Muslims Without Borders! Without  Apartheid  Walls, Passes

Long overdue: we must  explore possibilities  at  unity, Islamic  multiculturalism,  universal  Islamic  citizenship  (today, as  yesterday, rival, sectarian theological-political-economic  groups  have  dragged  the  heartlands of  Islam  in  a  downward  spiral  of  mutual  murder, bombing  each  others  masjids  during  Friday  congregational  prayers,  murdering  each  others  leaders).

Sadly  in  South  Africa  too it  is  NOT  enough  to  strive  to  be  a  Muslim, in  fact  this  is  held  against  one  by  the  powerful  in  muslim  society. In  order  to  participate  one  MUST  belong  to  a  theological-political-economic group. This  demands  that  i  have  to  limit  my  study  to  certain  scholars.

i  am  then  not  allowed to  draw  on  the  brilliant  contributions  of  scholars  from  other  schools, in  fact  i  must  condemn  these. This  is  UNISLAMIC  and  counterproductive. When  trying  to  create  and  exercise  universal  Islamic  citizenship  one  is  persecuted. Islamic  civilization  is  VAST, ours  is  an  immensely  rich  legacy. Our  fathers  and  mothers  from  Timbuktu, Mauritania, Libya, Iran, Iraq (sadly  bombed  to  destruction), Uganda, Mali, Tashkent, Bukhara, Muslims  in  the  Soviet  empire,  Muslims  in  China  ETC, ETC have  left  seminal  INTELLECTUAL  contributions  on  Arabic  language, literature, grammar, rhetoric, Tafsiir, Hadiith, ethics, ETC

THE  European  Union  is  creating  a  free – flow  zone  where  citizens  have  mobility, can  work  anywhere  ETC, but  WE  have  given  Islam  an  apartheid  structure.

Dear  fellow  Muslim, as  a  professional  in  the  corporate  world, in  the  professions, in  business you  do  not  experience  this  discrimination, you  would  go  to  the  mas’jid  to  perform  your  Namaaz. However  high  and  thick  walls  of  theological  discrimination  prevent  universalistic  ulama  from  contributing  to  Islam. we  are  denied  opportunity  to  contribute  to  Islam  through  lectures, radio  programs

Sadly, WE  MUSLIMS  AND  PARTICULARLY  OUR  LEADERSHIP  HAVE  SLAUGHTERED  TO  BITS  the  universality  of  Islam, the  very  ummah-ness  of  Islam-Iimaan.

ISLAM AND MUSLIMS Without Borders! Without  Apartheid  Walls, Passes

Modern reformist thought in the Muslim world

Modern reformist thought in the Muslim world

salaams,

This  book  is  an  insightful  introduction  into  modern  efforts   at  reflecting   on   the  key  themes  of   islam,  Allah,  Nabuwwat,  ijtihad,  shariah,  it   describes  the  intellectual  efforts[sir  sayyed,  shaykh  abdu,  allama  iqbal…]   of  brave  souls  to  liberate   islam  from  the  ALCATRAZ  created  by  thuggish  pseudo-taqlid.

Good  english.

A   must   for  parents   and  university  students.

Careful  study  and  rereading  this  book   is  key   to  acquiring  a  critical,  penetrating  dynamic  understanding  of  the  key  themes,  idea-lungs  of  islam.  this  can  than  be  discussed  with  children.

from  maulana  munir  hassan

 

This category [Alternative Madrasa]:

calls  muslims   to  take   an   active,   vibrant,  self-critical…      ACADEMIC   AND   INTELLECTUAL  INTEREST   in   islam,

 

introduces   book   titles,   websites,   names of   scholars…,

 

calls   upon   parents   to   take  an   active  interest   in the  islamic   education   and   intellectualization   of  their  children.

i,   MAULANA   munir   hassan,   am   raizing  the   red  flag   that   the   so-called   islamic   school  system  cannot,   will  never,   and   is   genetically   UN-ABLE   to  deliver  an  islamic   EDUCATION,   INTELLECTUALIZATION…

the   darul  ulooms   are   intellectual   sewers,  sources  of   a  hate   pandemic   that   is   mutilating   the  umma   and   humanity  at  large  compare   the   intellectual   culture  of   the   Harvards,   Oxfords,   UCTs…,   with  the   darul  ulooms,   anti-ilms   masquerading   as   ulama  have   NO  grasp   of   curriculum,  didactics,  sociology   of  education….

Chess is HIGHLY HALAAL

January 28, 2011

Chess is HIGHLY HALAAL, infact it is farz kifaayah, it is crucial to understanding, developing, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. The opinion that it is makrooh tahriimi etc is Baatil, absolutely baseless. Chess develops the mind, builds character/improves akhlaaq, is a vehicle for building relations between, cultures, races, faiths…
