Secular Lawmakers

We know that even in the Islamic countries the people who are often elected into the parliament are not of Islamic mind. They tend to be secular. Can we entrust them the responsibility to legislate for us according to the laws of the religion? How can give authority to a member of parliament to interpret Islam? It will be like the British Parliament which even passed homosexual laws? .How can ever a Islamic minded parliament established through vote? I believe a better option is the concept of Majlis e Shoorah introduced by General Zia Ul Haq in Pakistan or the institutes like Islamic Ideology Council.

Coexistence Of The Muslim Sects

I wonder how would Sunnis and Shia's get along in an Islamic government, especially when comes to selecting a leader? I am sure that there is no clear answer but I would like to read your insight on the matter. What do you think will ultimately happen? Will one side concede to the other or will they learn to live in peace? Might they end up fighting to the death? How serious is this issue? I am not all together clear on the matter.

I would also like to ask about the Islamic sharia and whether or not an Islamic Government could function in a country of non-Muslims?

Obligation To Form An Islamic State

I understand you hold that it is not obligatory for the believers to gather in number and fight for the rule of God. The question is how then do we ensure establishment of Allah's laws that were mentioned in the Quran, like inheritence law, law of divorce, law of punishment? What then is the wisdom behind Allah even giving these rules in the Quran? I believe in order to be able to practice all of Allahs laws we need to try and atleast give an effort to form an Islamic state, non-violently, rather than waiting for things to happen and do nothing about it?

Political Insight Of Women In Early Islam

In your response to the question entitled Women's Role in Political Affairs in Early Islam you have conclude that the women at "the time of the Holy Prophet (sws) were not politically aware." If Hazrat Ayesha (rta) could travel to fight a war to make sure that the assassins of Hazrat Usman (rta) were punished she must had played a role earlier when opposition between caliphate and Alids surfaced. Why is that not a possibility?

Women’s Role In Political Affairs In Early Islam

During the selection of the Rashidoon Caliphs, were the wives of the Prophet (sws) consulted or not? If not, than why women demand the right to vote in an Islamic country?

There is a verse in the Qur'an regarding the Companions of the prophet (sws) that reads: "they are gentle amongst themselves but harsh towards the enemies". But the history says that the Companions have been fighting amongst themselves i.e. Hazrat Ali (rta) and Hazrat Mu'awiya (rta). Since the Qur'an can never be wrong there must be a problem with the history.

Isn’t Democracy Against The Islamic Way Of Ruling?

In your earlier response, you wrote that Democracy is the recommended way of Islamic ruling according to the Quran. However, in yet another place, you wrote that a ruler is obliged to rule by Shariah otherwise he will be guilty of kufr. My question is, how will a ruler rule both by Shariah and also accept Democracy when the citizens of the country have no regard for Islamic values?

رسول اور اقتدار

میرا سوال یہ ہے کہ رسول اقتدار حاصل کرنے کی کوشش کیوں کرتے ہیں؟برائے مہربانی رہنمائی فرمائیے۔


جہاد اور حکومت

غامدی صاحب کہتے ہیں کہ جہاد صرف باقاعدہ حکومت ہی کر سکتی ہے۔ اگر ایسا ہی ہے تو مجاہدین آزادی، مثلاً مجاہدین کشمیر یہ حکومت کہاں سے حاصل کریں؟


اسلام کا نظام خلافت

اسلام کا نظام خلافت صرف چند دہائیوں تک ہی کیوں چل سکا؟ کیا جیسا کہ ڈاکٹر اسرار صاحب حدیث بیان کیا کرتے تھے کہ نبی ؐ نے خود ہی فرما دیا تھا کہ خلافت اتنے سالوں بعد ختم ہو جائے گی اور ملوکیت آ جائے گی۔ اس کے بعد بھی کہانی بیان ہوتی ہے۔ اس بارے میں آپ کی کیا رائے ہے؟ کیا یہ طے شدہ پروگرام تھا کہ اتنے سالوں بعد خلافت ختم ہو جائے گی؟ یا اسلام اپنے پیروکاروں کی درست تربیت نہیں کر پایا؟


عالمی حکومت کا خواب

جاوید احمد غامدی صاحب نے ایک ٹی وی پروگرام میں فرمایا: اب انسان اس بات کا حق رکھتا ہے کہ وہ ایک عالمی حکومت کا خواب دیکھے۔ اس بات نے میرے ذہن میں بہت الجھن پیدا کر دی ہے ۔ میں اس بات کو پوری طرح سمجھنا چاہتا ہوں۔ وضاحت فرماے؟

میرا دوسرا سوال یہ ہے کہ کچھ لوگ چند روایات نقل کرتے ہوئے یہ نقطہ نظر اختیار کرتے ہیں کہ اگر خالد بن ولید رضی اللہ تعالی چند نفوس کو لے کر ساٹھ ہزار پر مشتمل ایک طاقتور فوج کو شکست دے سکتے ہیں تو پھر اس قرآنی آیت کا کیا مطلب ہے جو غامدی صاحب کے مطابق اس بات کو لازم قرار دیتی ہے کہ مسلمانوں کو اس وقت تک جنگ نہیں کرنا چاہیے جب تک ان کی حربی قوت دشمن کی حربی قوت کے کم از کم نصف برابر نہ ہو؟
