Today people think that women are liberated in the West and that the Women’s liberation movement began in the 20th century. Actually, the women’s liberation movement was not begun by women, but was revealed by God to a man in the seventh century by the name of Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, the last Prophet of God. The Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet are the sources from which every Muslim woman derives her rights and duties.

Appalled is a word often used in press statements. But today Wifaqul Ulama would like to say that we are numb and have no words to express at the sight of Children who have been gassed by the Syrian regime. The nonreactive pupils of these children are staring at us through galling digital images. The silent eyes of these children are questioning, demanding answers from us. Where is our concern for humanity? Where is our concern for fellow Muslims?
We are appalled by the prejudicial and callous reporting in “The Times”, although not surprised. It is unfortunate that this appalling piece was picked by other media outlets. “The Sun” even chose to run the story even after much within the original article was factually debunked.

The Deobandi

The use of the term “Deobandi” derives from this tradition, and refers to scholars who have either learnt, or studied with teachers, from Darul ‘Uloom Deoband. However, with time, as the number of graduates increased and became widespread, the term “Deobandi” came to be used much more loosely, particularly by non-scholars, often as throwaway labels of religious identity in antagonism to other religious identities. The growth of such attitude has meant that it is very easy, in a highly un-nuanced way, to categorise just about any Muslim as “Deobandi”.

Junaid Jamshed

When I heard the news of the plane gone missing I was apprehensive but my feelings turned to anguish when it was confirmed that my friend was on board. At this time I don’t have the words to express my emotions but I would like Wifaqul Ulama to request all Muslims in the country to pray for everyone who has passed away in this tragedy. May Allah Ta’ala forgive the sins of everyone, grant them entry into Jannatul-Firdaus and grant patience to their families. I request special Dua for my friend who is no longer with us.
