In reading some of the comments made by students about the Skype call with the Boston students, it seems there are different views of political Islam. When I think of politics, I think of elections, government infrastructure and organizations, the constitution and so on. In America, we have two main political parties - Democrat and Republican. Neither party represents a religion. Afghanistan, on the other hand, is an Islamic country with parties representing different views, including different views of how Islamic laws should be practiced. This is one of the reasons Secretary Clinton made a statement that if President Karzai begins talks with the Taliban, he should make sure that women have equal rights.

Question: What is your view of political Islam?

First of all I can say Islamic mission is universal: applicable to different cultures in the changing time, space and circumstances. And Islam is a political, democratic, social, and a humanitarian system that resolve all the problems of this world
Islamic sources (Qur’an & Hadit (sunnah) consist of two principles: universal (‘aam) and temporary & Specific principle (khosh).
The ‘aam principles consist of supreme values: the goals of Shariah (Maqasid- Shariyah): Obedience to the order of God through the ibadah (worship to God) and upholding the humanity.
The khosh (temporary principles) indicated practical and technical guidance
Exclusivist & Textualist: al hadit
The universal principles can be best explained by the specific verses or the prophet interpretation.
The jihad should be carefully undertaken by distinctive ulama that meet the requirements set up by the great ulama. The use of ratio is forbidden to understand Islam as it possibly interfered by nafsu (individual interest).
So there is a rational basis for discussing Islam, but people do not want a rational basis because they really don’t want to open the box and look inside. There is a profound fear of actually looking into the eyes of Mohammed and knowing the mind of Islam. Fear, because we feel ourselves to be in the position of a spouse who has suspicions that their partner is cheating on them. If they found out that their suspicions were true, they would have to do something, so it seems better not to know. To keep us from asking questions and wanting to know, the Newstate has declared knowledge about Islam is to be called bigotry. We just don’t do that, you know, discuss Islam. It is not proper behavior. Bigots don’t like Muslims. Isn’t being afraid of Islam called Islamo-phobia? Exerting critical thought about Islam gets you labeled as mentally and ethically ill. The primary weapon of the new state against knowledge is name-calling and insults. To have knowledge about political Islam is a crime against the Newstate.
It is a crime because the authority of the Newstate has decreed it to be so. The genius of the Newstate is knowing that if facts are made a civil crime then critical thought cannot begin. For this reason, the media never, but never, connects the dots of what is happening with political Islam.


Hello dear Anna: How is with you? I hope you healthy and doing well.
Political Islam is a basic and fundamental politics compared to other politics. All over the world this is the only politics which always invite the people toward brotherhood, intimacy, peace, and security.
The correct and main meaning of political Islam is to reform this world and that world which is coming in the future I mean after the death.
Especially the meaning of political Islam is to perform the good activities and keep your selves away from bad activities.

Thanks, Haseeb... it's interesting to learn how politics and religion merge together. Here, in the U.S., they are separate from each other.
Accept my good whishes Ana!

Hello to all
This Farhad Abdulrahimzay from technical institute.
As it accepted reality that Islam is the religion of brother hood and equality.
And Islam usually persists in more usages that human created equally they must enjoy from equal rights.
In my view if the president of Afghanistan talks with Taliban about it maybe they will accept because it is a lawful statement in Islam.
And Islam never forbids some one from his rights.
Hello to all
In the name of almighty Allah the most compassionate and most merciful
This is Abdullah wadan from technical institute
Islam is a religion of brother hood or a religion of kindest in the world
Islam order to all the human that you should act a kind of things which
Islam order to the entire human to don't drink wine and also other things like Monistation and also bad working in the life that is unlawful which done without of
There is no changing in Islam religion like other religion
I wish that you are all in Islam religion
According to Al-Mawardi from his book Al-Ahkam Al-Sultaniyyah, it is hirasatud din wa siasatud dunya - to uphold the religion and administer the world. Politics is not munkar - is not a depravity - real politics is noble virtuous because it administers the affairs of all creatures, bringing man closer to good and away from fasad - evil. According to Ibn al-Qayyim, politics is really the justice of Allah the Almighty and His Prophet (peace and the blessings of Allah be upon him). The Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. was a politician as well as the messenger conveying the risalah, murabbi - teacher, Qadi - Chief Justice, Head of the nation and Imam of the ummah. The Khulafa' al Rasyidun - the rightly guided leaders who succeeded him were also politicians following the Sunnah - way of the Prophet, establishing just administration, practising ihsan - the betterment of good and providing the leadership of 'ilm - knowledge and Iman - belief.
Hidayatullah Amani IT Trainer of Technical Institute
This is wafiullah naseem from technical institute. Here is a question that what is Islam?
This is my answer for this question that Islam is our holly religion
First of all we should know that what is Islam taken from?
Islam is taken from Salam it means to give up.
Islam is made of five things
1: Calima
2: Pray
3: Fast
4: Alms
5: Pilgrimage
These are called five bases of Islam. And there were some preislamic religion like: they were worshiping air, weather, sun, moon etc…..
But now a day all the people accepted Islam those people who accept the roll of Islam there life will be success.
Islam has a lot of rolls like: a Muslim person should pray five times a day.
A Muslim person should recite the holly qoran many times.
Islam doesn’t let a person to kill another person without any reason.
There for we should accept and respect the holly religion of Islam.
Islam is a common religion. It mean there is no relation between Islam and politic.
Wafiullah, are there any political groups in Afghanistan that want all people to follow Islamic teachings in the same way? Can a person be president of Afghanistan if he is not a Muslim?
Hello dear Anna!
Thanks for your question
I will say about this question that in the first characteristic for afghan presidential candidates is that he should be Muslim
