It’s a matter of fact that Muslim societies are facing many social and socio-political and religious challenges with contemporary dominant thought. The philosophical domain of Feminism is directly threatening the social aspects of Muslim communities all around the globe. This phenomenon is an important contemporary socio-religious issue which is not only disturbing the moral values of Muslims but also trying to deny the basic teachings of Islam regarding gender rights. It is observed to high extent that Muslim societies and their culture have got influenced by Feminist thought. Feminist theory believes that women should have the equal rights and opportunities as men. They also advocate for equal social, political and economic rights for women. Feminist women are also involved in making fun of Islamic teachings and instructions specially regarding women, Qura’nic teachings and Islamic worship specially Jumma and funeral prayer has also been targeted. Therefore, it is strongly required to critically analyze Feminism, as it has nothing new in its philosophy, instead only changed its manifestations over the period. But it is obvious that Feminism has now become a serious challenge, especially for the new generation because they are more vulnerable to this challenging situation. Despite the Feminists use every possible and available means of propaganda i.e. print, electronic and social media for expanding their thoughts to convince the people specifically the Muslim Youth. The research will explore a balanced solution to counter this modern challenge. The study will answer the questions that what are the effects of Feminism? What are the basic reasons of getting tilted towards Feminism in contemporary modern world and making fun of Islamic teachings? What kind of strategies should be designed to convince Feministic school of thought through Islamic teaching of gender equity and justice? The research will also suggest; what role Muslim scholars should play collectively and individually for (Da’wah) strategies. Lastly it will suggest the legal and ethical mechanism required to be developed into propagate and establish Islamic philosophy of women rights instead of Feministic philosophy.
Extremism has been defined as a quality of human beings contrary to patience, tolerance and moderation which are the qualities universally recognized as hall mark of a decent and reasonable person: Islamic teachings are so clear and manifest in this regard, that its very little literally means, peace.
According to Quran, Islam is a faith of moderation and Muslims are demanded to be patient and to exercise self control in the state of anger.
Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) demonstrated extra ordinary compassion, understanding & forgiveness in dealing with all human beings including his arch-enemies, and persecutors.
The paper describes in detail the teachings of Quran and the Prophet (P.B.U.H) in relation to intolerance and extremism and conclusively argues that the moderation is the hall-mark of the teachings of Prophet (P.B.U.H).
Basically, land reforms are essential for distribution of land. These reforms can entail several economic and social benefits. Land reforms are always formulated to devise a strategy for better production, they alleviate poverty and increase agricultural development. In Pakistan, feudal system causes several problems such as functional inequality, poverty and food insecurity which in turn become barriers in economic development. These problems lead to a debate on land tenure system and land reforms. Pakistan have seen three major land reforms in its history: first during the martial law of Ayub Khan in 1959 and two other in the era of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in 1970s. However, these reforms have not been implemented due to multiple reasons. This research paper reviews the land reforms in Pakistan and Islamic teachings on the subject.
