Are Muslims a Single Nation?

This essay is an attempt by Javed Ahmad Ghāmidī to reconcile the concept of brotherhood, verbalized in the Holy Qur’ān, and a modern idea of nationality based on well demarcated geographical borders.

Sūrah Jinn

Sūrah Jinn primarily relates an incident of the hidden world, which the addressees of the sūrah believed in through their interaction with soothsayers. If the Quraysh could give credence to what evil jinn passed on to soothsayers, why would they not accept what good jinn said about the Holy Qur’ān. This was not merely a self-conceived narrative, but something to be verified from oracles regarding the intensified watch of the heavens, precluding bad jinn from eavesdroping. In his commentary, Amīn Ahsan Islāhī elaborates these and many other meaningful aspects of the sūrah’s contents.

Difference between Hadīth and Sunnah

Amīn Ahsan Islāhī expounds one fundamental principle of his jurisitc framework. The distinction of hadīth from sunnah, he contends, is a historical fact, as clear as the advent of Islam. Ignorance to this fact has created fissures in Muslim society besides giving birth to many juridical differences.
