Liberating Kerala Islam from Sectarian Priesthood

July 6, 2014 | featured

It has become highly imminent for the scholars of Muslim Kerala to overcome their organisational and sectarian differences and adopt a more reconciliatory approach for uniting the community. The traditional Ulama has to settle their differences of opinion behind closed doors instead of celebrating their accusations and counter accusations on the streets. Kerala Islam is today chained in priesthood and the constant sectarian bullying has robbed them of the opportunity of discovering the beaut

Indian contribution to Arabic Sufi Literature

July 6, 2014 | archive

Text of speech by Sayyid Munavvar Ali Shihab Thangal at the Al Nahda international Arabic Seminar, Kerala, Aug 30 2014 I convey my immense pleasure and extreme pride for being part of this outstanding academic journey on the very theme “Modern Arabic Literature on Spiritual Science from India and Arab World”. This chance which I got to preside the session is unarguably valuable in the sense, I am sure, this conference will lead into many worthy thoughts and academic explorations of a subj

Salalah : Quenching Thirst for Nature’s Nectar

July 6, 2014 | jaihoonium

August 10 - 14 2014 The journey began at early dawn. It was extraordinary windy. The car doors would not close easily. So much that I even had second thought to continue the journey or not. Nevertheless, with the prayers said, the wheels rolled on. A 14 hour journey is not that short. Especially when one is the only person in the car who can drive. And the only way to meet the challenge of keeping the eyes wide open is to engage either the mind and heart. What else beside the commentary o

Ramadan 1435: Day 29

July 6, 2014 | jaihoonium

Jaihoon's journal of the Holy Month As Ramadan draws to a close, the believer is eager if he would get another day ad night from the Holy Month. Would he get another chance of the Tharaveeh prayers? Would he able to weep before the Lord in the Qiyamul layl? Or would he have to commence the preparations for Eid? A suspense builds up in his heart...

Ramadan 1435: Day 28

July 6, 2014 | jaihoonium

Jaihoon's journal of the Holy Month The life on earth would make no sense were it not for the hereafter. But the vice versa is equally true. The akhira is all about stocktaking our earthly existence. Friends and foes there are a product of our worldly interactions. Allah is not joking when HE says he will take us to task on the Day of Judgment. A believer will fervently shiver as he listens to the verses of chapters such as Qaf and Waqia from the Holy Book. May Allah grant us His Merci

  • Salalah : Quenching Thirst for Nature’s Nectar - When I reached home, the meter read 3000km since I left my doorstep. Content beyond any count, I was out of words for the heavenly experience. Every pleasure is followed by pain. The mosquito bites these days remind me of that universal wisdom.
  • A Weekend Vent to the City of Two Seas - I was fortunate enough to have a weekend vent to the weeklong suffocation of tasteless routine. And I chose a closer destination this time, but which was completely new to my thoughtful senses.
  • Meeting with the Mystic of Melattur - The silent scholar is not a regular darling of the religious establishments. He rarely attends phone calls and, though has a laptop, does not bother to check emails. Taking advantage of this rare opportunity of meeting him, I blatantly bombed him with a host of questions to which he very patiently answered
  • Milad un Nabi: Prophetic Praise is Perfume for our Souls - Fragrance is in no need of advertising. Then what about the blessed one from whom fragrance borrowed its scent? Yet we are extolling him to perfume our own souls with the mercy and compassion he showered on humanity and others... Jaihoon's Muscat trip journal
  • Kerala is worth a Thousand FEZ : Jaihoon - Kerala is worth a thousand FEZ. Let the world know about it. Sincerely a restless soul... Jaihoon's review on the India premiere of “Fez : City of Saints”
  • Namaz at Hotel Ashirvad - On the night of return, TV channels flashed headlines warning about possible terror attacks. By the grace of God, there were no such fireworks.
  • RAMADAN 2013 : Deep fry your Nafs - Our FEAR of Allah’s punishment makes sense only when there's HOPE in His Mercy! And Ramadan is the superb balancing act between these two opposite forces. It is also a spiritual frying pan to deep fry the ‘Nafs’ in His Mercy & Forgiveness
  • Death – The Nemesis of Human Mortality: No more grand prayer from my Grandmother - Nothing does more damage to our creative ambitions than the loss of our dearest well-wishers. And the wound is even deeper when the loss is inflicted upon by Death, the nemesis of human mortality.
  • BUY PREVACID NO PRESCRIPTION - ‘Tonight on, the KING is seeking the petition from his subjects. And know the best of HIS subjects are those who ask HIM the best. And know again, HE is in love with those who ask. So be not stingy in your questions and wants. Lay bare your heart’s wishes. Spread open for HIM your infinite wish list. HE is the KING of Mercy and Love. '
  • ZOVIRAX FOR SALE - A critical essay on the four factors which would help one realize the full meaning of Time.
  • BUY PROVERA OVER THE COUNTER - The Sufi Sultan had just returned from US after a critical operation. He was perhaps in the greatest crisis of his life. Losses enveloped him from all frontiers. That's when Jaihoon approached him with some questions.
  • BUY ZOVIRAX NO PRESCRIPTION - Crisis and conflicts sometimes evoke in us the wildest response from within which we would have never imagined before. We may cry in times of joy or laugh during troublesome times as part of this response mechanism. I, therefore, opted to celebrate the recent challenges which were hovering around me with an aquatic getaway.
  • BUY CARDURA NO PRESCRIPTION - Nursi helped millions to sail safely and smoothly through the rivers of modern science and ancient religion. He harmonized the ambitions of science with the ideals of Religion.
  • KLONOPIN FOR SALE - With fingers crossed, we waited for a God sent angel. And then to our excitement, Sudhir called us back and asked for the hospital details. He reached within an hour of waiting.
  • BIAXIN FOR SALE - Yes, Ramadan is the most grand discount extravaganza we can ever imagine. Shopping for the blessings of Allah, be it of the greatest or silly value... Jaihoon’s Journal of Ramadan 2011
  • BUY CECLOR OVER THE COUNTER - The national symbols of India are largely contributions of Muslim rule
  • BUY ALPRAZOLAM OVER THE COUNTER - The chairs are usually used for sitting purpose only. But here they moved towards the people carrying an important message functioning as a medium of thought exchange: enlightening and empowering the viewer with new ideas of beauty
  • BUY ULTRAM OVER THE COUNTER - This article is in response to a Twitter discussion, on public intellectuals in the gulf, triggered by the writer’s comment, I thought “public intellectuals" in the Gulf was an oxymoron!
  • BUY MYAMBUTOL OVER THE COUNTER - That expatriates have transplanted a major portion of their lifespan to explore and enjoy better economics in this country is understandable. It is also true that this country has offered expats what their country of origin has not.
  • BUY SIBUTRAMINE OVER THE COUNTER - Despite observing it from known childhood, the Month has remained a spiritual energy powerhouse enriching with intimate experiences with the Creator. Every year, like all believers, I look upon it with renewed enthusiasm and expectations. To undo the past sins and build a better future for my soul. I win, I fail and the circle goes on
  • Ramadan to Ramadan: Three Rs to Reflect - It is habitual for us to 'regret about the past, complain about the present and worry about the future'. We spend more time thinking about them, than trying to solve them.
  • GEODON FOR SALE - The Hindu majority state had the guts which the Muslim Malabar, with all its organized Muslim political and religious power had failed to achieve. If Gandhi Factor is the honorary reason for the largely successful ban n Gujarat, Malabar too is not lacking in spiritual cum political luminaries
  • ANAFRANIL FOR SALE - Did we realize that there are an equal number of victims who are martyred in the tsunami of this madness? They are the ones whose hearts cry for the end of this tournament as soon as possible.
  • BUY VIAGRA OVER THE COUNTER - Believers of today get excited when Science confirms a fact earlier established in Quran. Should they really?
  • Mother Rediscovered - Thanks to the media, the commercial giants have spent heavily on defining motherhood through their products
  • A Mother’s womb is not for Sale - A Mother's womb, that is cherished and revered since the creation of man as the greatest guardian of life, is being compared here to just 'a model' of an air conditioner! A model that would fail to maintain its 'uniqueness' in the market for not more than a few months. The womb is the very symbol of human life on earth.On the need for government regulation in advertising industry.
  • BUY COUMADIN OVER THE COUNTER - The point of interest is that this quote by Bayazid Bastami appeared as the opening quote of a psychology text book taught in CBSE Indian schools...Jaihoon on knowledge segregation
  • BUY FLAGYL OVER THE COUNTER - Her every vein protested with pain. And now she was asking one of her sons to look after his medication, writes Jaihoon on a visit to the ICU
  • Hasbi Rabbi Jalla Allah : Rahman’s Melody vs. Mother’s Lullaby - Although loud and fast beats surround the wholly religious lyric, Rahman has successfully maintained a spiritual aura for the listener to experience.
  • Everyday’s a Valentine’s Day - What prompted Jaihoon to think so was a question posed by a colleague during a busy and breathless office schedule. "So what are you giving her for Valentine's day?" I must admit that such a question was never anticipated from a 40+ lady absorbed in her office assignments. But the reply was as spontaneous and short as the question itself. "Everyday is a Valentine's Day for me"
  • BUY INTESTINAL OVER THE COUNTER - Educationists, governmental departments and even parents can rejoice over the above saying of Holy Prophet. An Ashura thought
  • An Affectionate NOC from the wife - If it is the command of creed that a wife seeks the permission of her husband before observing voluntary fasts, then it is the same religion of Peace that teaches the parallel lesson for husbands to obtain 'an affectionate NOC' (No Objetion certificate) from one's wife so that her rights are protected.
  • Henna: The balm on the palm - Everyone mentioned above is rewarded in one form or the other. At least they are given the credit for the roles they play. However on this blessed day, there is a silent character who is the focus of attention of almost the entire family and even the neighborhood in some cases. This person loses sleep, sometimes staying awake until late hours... the eyes get swollen so that other's hearts in happiness are woven.
  • Allama Iqbal and Umar Qazi: Two lovers of the Holy Prophet - Had Iqbal known of Qazi, he would have probably included him in his poetry just as Tipu Sultan (from South India). The gap was partly owing to the rich contributions of Keralite intelligentsia but restricted to their own mother tongue.
  • An academic Revival for Fatimah Zahra - Zahrawiyya was the title given to female graduates named after the legendary daughter of the Holy Prophet, Fatimah Zahra
  • A celebrity out of Poverty! - Which mother could see her child- who just survived a suicidal attempt- be taken away from her?
  • Library: A resort for bookworms? - Poets and thinkers have owed their best works to this silent valley. Many a scientists have silently screamed Eureka at this kingdom of books. Intellectuals find no other designation to spend their vacation than this empty hall with shelves all around.
  • Cricket …where Lady Luck shows off - From the very beginning, it was with 'two-minded mentality' that I thought of going to watch the match. After all it was the duty of the spectators to cheer those on the field. And I was not sure of my cheering capacity.In every game it is quite natural for one side to lose heart and other side to celebrate. And who takes which side- that is for us to wait and see.
  • ” I am an American”: SO WHAT? - Thank God that unlike organized religions, there isn't any single custodian or a specific city in the case of English language to dictate what is authentic or not. Or else it would become hard for humanity to distinguish between the terms- 'terrorism' from 'patriotism'.
  • Chocolates, pickle…and Palestine - Conscience invasion in shopping It was just a shopping experience. In fact the first official one since Jaihoon had been promoted to the position of a breadwinner. Al Hamdu Lillah. As usual, it was a dotcom product that had priority in my TINY shopping list: a 1.5m USB cable. However, a box of chocolates was a not a bad idea to balance the list.
  • A Grand Question from a little one - Meeting Death face to face is indeed a matter of great trial for the faith of the believer. Not everyone can receive the Angel of Death with a smile. In fact death is the test-tube where the solution of faith is examined.
  • A Catwalk by little ones - In this show, the participants never had to put up a show! They were as they were- pure of heart and intentions. They had not grown enough to become the victims of the Accursed One. Of course, they were instructed to act as so and so, but they never did so successfully.
  • Shame for Uncle Sam - It was hard to believe whether it was the real news or a commercial break of a Hollywood movie preview. But this was real plane, real building and real people.
  • Uplifting the Female without dumping her status - Among the most intensely discussed issues of today is the upliftment of women. The issue has attracted attention from all walks of life, creating both controversies and emotional response.
  • Monkey’s day out - A few months back, the appearance of the 'Monkey-Man' that assaulted many had caused an outcry not only in the region where it was discovered, but rest of the world as well.
  • Valentine’s Day: The Cupid Conspiracy - It is not in my capacity to elaborate the obsession of western civilization with the ancient Roman past, especially its past pagan legacy. Thanks to globalization, the 'land of sunset' is more appealing in the eyes of 'land of sunrise'. What is western is synonymous with what is global and is not much different from the colonial effect of the middle ages.
  • Sneezing vs. Yawning - A thought dawned upon my mind about two mundane things which we all do (and as such there is nothing philosophical about it). Some of the results on comparison were funny and some strange.
  • INDERAL FOR SALE - نطاق المصرفية الاسلامية في كيرالا، نظرة اجتماعية Arabic translation of Jaihoon's essay 'Scope of Islamic Banking in Kerala - A Sociological Approach' by Abdul Gafoor Hudawi INDERAL FOR SALE, مرة هبط (UFO) جسم طائر غير معروف في مدينة كاليكوت، وخرج الأجانب منه و الذين كانوا في السفينة الفضائية وبدؤوا يتجولون في أحياءها وشوارعها وفي قرى […]
  • Making mistakes is Man’s right, not Microsoft’s - Life is all about change. 'Change' in seasons, change in relationships, change within one's owns self. No single moment is the same in the universe. The planetary bodies are changing their location every moment. The rising sun has never seen the same earth on any two days. Change in state or rather movement is the […]
  • Palestine: What approach next ? - The only approach that remains to be tried is a 'spiritual approach'... not missiles and bombings.
  • Need for an Islamic auction site - The net is getting so popular that purchasing on the net may shift from a 'shopping product' to a 'convenience product'. I personally wish that Muslims shouldn't shy away from the digital revolution where velocity is the only reality. And being a staunch believer in Iqbalian philosophy, I believe that the 'angel should not go […]
  • Pilgrimage to a Moneywise Shrine - It was perhaps my first ever official visit to the shrine. A little walking effort had brought me to the institution. The clamor of money was in the air. The visitors had come with their choice made: Deposit or Withdrawal. This two-fold phenomenon was evident on each face. The paper bits in their hands spoke […]
  • The Mrs. Perfect attitude ! - The gender conflict arises, as is commonly known, from ego clashes. There is no permanent solution to this fight. The Creator has fashioned the human nature with all the required flexibility it needs. Humans only need to adjust to this kind of problem. And perhaps realize the truth that there is no absolute right or […]
  • The curtain has risen, its time to act! - ... but isn't it time we take this from a different perspective ? I mean the stand taken by Imam Gazzali with respect to the mischief of his time: Philosophy. While the former scholars had a defensive stand towards philosophy, Imam al Gazzali (who is honorably called Hujjatul Islam, the proof of Islam) took an […]
  • Depression : Hunting for the spirit in the body! - I have read many articles on the stress, depression, workaholic etc problems suffered in the western part of the planet. In west, appetite is more of an alarming issue unlike hunger in the east. Stress management has become a specialized field in management and other humanities. But I see the problem with a slightly different […]
  • The smile of Agony - When anger takes over ! How am I to behold the volcano of anguish and anger? This fume that is being emitted, spreads far and wide, knowing no bounds. Frustration enfolds every vein of mine. Nothing but curse and mistrust. And what can I say about this hell at heart? This flame continues to gain […]
  • BUY AMARYL NO PRESCRIPTION - Before Ramadan began, in a light-hearted moment I told my love that when in paradise, I would be in the joyful company of hoors. she replied in an indifferent tone, ‘That’s ok. But make sure you don’t spend too much time on the PC or else they would go away”.
  • BUY DUPHASTON NO PRESCRIPTION - - Jaihoon BUY DUPHASTON NO PRESCRIPTION, A few years back, when mind was not as much ripe, I had a chance to get hold of Imam Gazzali’s work, Mishkat Al Anwar. DUPHASTON schedule, It was too ‘heretical’ for me then to accept the deeply mystical ideas expounded in it. And years after… attending a Tafsir […]
  • Unique pearls on the shore of Islam - This is an age where there are many struggles for the equality of women. Seminars, books, talk show demonstrations...what else not is used in propagation of the feminist agenda. And in this process, the apostles of feminism don’t waste any chance in painting Islam as a backward and discriminatory religion. Hijab is labeled as ‘an […]
  • Mild Venture vs. Wild Adventure - The soil here is magical- simply throw the seed of some vegetable or fruit, and it is cent percent guarantee to grow. On trip to Wayanad]
  • Transforming solar energy to neural electric impulse on our taste-buds - Jaihoon's essay on sustenance provided by God for Man. We live in a calculated world. Our pains and joys are measured to fit the man-made parameters. We estimate our lifespan and plan for education, profession and the retirement (but not death). We assess our expenses for each stage all by ourselves. We make our guardians […]
  • BUY DELTASONE OVER THE COUNTER - BUY DELTASONE OVER THE COUNTER, Jaihoon's critique on the blasphemous cartoons published in Denmark. It was during a Friday prayer in the middle of a camping trip that I took notice of the pamphlets kept for the worshippers to read. Earlier, buy cheap DELTASONE no rx, while purchasing the eatables for the trip, DELTASONE coupon, […]
  • Traffic Jams and Judgment Day: The Unripe fruits of Industrial Revolution - The rationale of this piece is not to doubt the sincerity of the Industrial Revolution. The historic revolution has surely fulfilled the promise for both ascetic and the atheist. Humanity has benefited from it irrespective of race or religion. However, either out of frustration or fascination, Jaihoon cannot help sharing this mundane thought! Automobiles has […]
  • Wanted: A Sheikh @ the Bedroom - Jaihoon's essay on the religious education of Muslim women. It was during a business chat that this topic pounced upon my thinking cap. My customer, an American settled in the Emirates, was sharing his bit about the only educational institution, an American affiliated campus, imparting undergraduate programs in Arabic and Islamic studies for the expatriate […]
  • Political Monsters and Suicidal Chickens of Kerala - Jaihoon's critique on the widespread political agitations and suicide deaths of Kerala, the South Indian state. … It was on a humid evening that I and friends rushed to an electronics shop in the heart of the city. Our erstwhile attempts proved futile unable to find the product we're looking for. All we wanted was […]
  • Ramadan beyond civilizations - [Jaihoon's analysis of the Special programs broadcasted on the media around the world] Life offers a variety of circumstances, which brings joy and pain, one after another. The dead winter is followed by the lively spring. From one side comes a sorrowful arrow that shatters our hearts, while from another side comes a caring needle […]
  • A tree just before Terror and Tremor - Islam is a religion of hope and determination. Never has the Beloved Leader of humanity let them lose hope- not in this world not in the next.
  • Flattering your wife, honestly! - In the process of giving such complements, there is no need to hunt or steal others’ verses. Just say it from your heart which is suffice. Poetry is nothing but the water flowing from the heart’s basin. And love is a rain-bearing cloud which pours water into that basin!.. by Jaihoon
  • You can’t beat Allah’s Mercy - What makes a believer different from non-believer is his capacity to hope for Allah's Mercy. The slave may despise himself, cursing and wailing before Him.
  • Passed a judgment, failed by sentiment - I was no longer the nervous participant, but the judge who gave the judgment. And it had a 'personal excitement' of its own...
  • A new and sweet definition of Heart - The definition begins with a suspense and ends with the revelation of the secret. The middle part is the important part that establishes the relationship between the heart and the personality
  • ‘I wish I was alive then…’ - If you ask Jaihoon in one sentence about the feeling that one gets after watching the movie, then he'd rather quote the words of a character who says at the end of the movie, 'I wish I was alive during the lifetime of Prophet's companions' to feel, to experience, to see and hear, to inhale the fragrance of Beloved of Lord. Review of Muhammad: The Last Prophet
  • A burnt Preacher vs. Learnt Preacher - Visiting the sick one, no matter on what creed does his heart feed, brings in the visitor a sense of humility. Perhaps it will refine the believer's heart better than listening to a mind-blowing seminar delivered by an expert on religion
  • How much is your prayer worth? - Let us evaluate our position. In the era when the major corporate houses are overvaluing their stock, let us be honest and honest, with outmost trust. Do not over value. Do not under value. Just at par value
  • Be like the Beloved! - Walk like Muhammad Rasoolullah. Sit like Muhammad Rasoolullah. Be like Muhammad Rasoolullah - the beloved of Allah. When anyone looks at you, they should remember Muhammad Rasoolullah
  • Gaining love and losing weight - When our belly is full, we stop to think. When our belly is full, in laziness we are sunk. When our belly is full, we stop where we are
  • Working capital at the Cultural capital - Trade and commerce is vital for the progress of humanity. To shun it all together will weaken us like a feather.
  • Henna of the wounded hearts - Perhaps he is only trying to avenge his humiliation at the hands of Uncle Sam.
  • Women operating behind the veil- Bliss or Curse? - There is nothing like an absolute right or wrong when it comes to 'WOMEN' and 'POLITICS". The best way of dealing with both is with a compromising attitude. What is considered 'opportunity' in one maybe a 'threat' for another.
