Understanding the "Sword Verse" | Dr. Shehzad Saleem

Understanding the "Sword Verse" | Dr. Shehzad Saleem

Dr. Shehzad Saleem offers a unique take on 9:5, a controversial verse of the Quran. He says the verse should be read in the context of other scriptures in which God creates lesser days of judgment to remind us of the punishment of the Day of Judgment and help us remember our accountability before God. God uses His messengers as instruments of justice to punish those who deliberately deny the truth after it has been made evident to them in a manner that is conclusive. Only God knows and divulges this information to His messengers. Human judgment cannot come into play, so this practice cannot be extended by human beings in the post-prophetic era. For us, judgment is deferred until the Day of Judgment. Hence the so-called sword verse cannot be applied today. Dr. Shehzad Saleem is an Islamic researcher who completed his PhD from the University of Wales, UK on the history of the transmission of the Quran. In 2020, he published, “History of the Quran - A Critical Study.” Dr. Shehzad is a fellow at Al Mawrid Institute and a student of Javed Ahmed Ghamidi and Amin Ahsan Islahi, whose teacher, Hamid Uddin Farahi was an important scholar of the Quran and the Arabic language in the Indian subcontinent.

Conclusion | Part 11 | Dr. Shabir's Approach to Islam series

Though Dr. Shabir Ally may offer different answers from what is widely and popularly known, nonetheless he follows a strict methodology that relies on the primacy of Quran and genuine narratives of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). He says that contrary to the theoretical concept of Ijma, many scholars hold diverse opinions on the same questions. Sometimes he finds that one such opinion relies of stronger evidence. Occasionally, he will develop his own opinion when dealing with new issues. He says the use of reason is Islamic; without it, we would not be faithful to God in using the gifts He has given us. He speaks at length about the weakness of his approach, and his own personal weaknesses. He concludes that our generation has the same responsibility as generations past to shape the faith in a way that is reasonable, practical and shows the beauty and wisdom of God in our time, even if it means doing something different from our predecessors; he says they were right, and hopefully we are also right by the grace of God.

Approach to Scholarly Consensus (Ijma') | Part 9 | Dr. Shabir's Approach to Islam series

Approach to Scholarly Consensus (Ijma') | Part 9 | Dr. Shabir's Approach to Islam series

Last time, Dr. Shabir Ally questioned the idea of a scholarly consensus. Now he explains that the presumption of a scholarly consensus is used to silence dissent and stifle fresh thinking. He says we should think of ijma as a theoretical concept; it was never put into practice. Rather, ijma often refers to a scholarly opinion that became dominant and accepted over time. Dr. Shabir says he would hesitate to go against any scholarly view, but if the situation is so pressing that it really needs a modern answer and contemporary solution, then he would closely examine the evidence to find out how the scholar made the ruling. He says that when we adopt a modern stance that goes against what is considered the dominant opinion, we are not going against the Quran or what is genuinely creditable to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), since scholarly opinions can only arise when something is not clearly specified within the sources, and sometimes there is a wide variation between what the Quran actually says and what people claim it means or claim Islam teaches on a particular subject.

From Our Viewers

I'm a graduate student in psychology and I started reading more in depth of the Holy Quran. I'm constantly making connections between the Holy Quran and renowned theories in the world of psychology. Thank you so much for your all your work. It has helped me to foster a deeper understanding of this peaceful religion!

I’ve often commented on your videos. I have some news. I took my shahadah three weeks ago now and have accepted Islam. My decision was of course not just based on your videos, but they were a great source of information to me, so thank you. My ultimate goal was and is to serve God. I found that I could do that best in Islam. I’m a European white woman (not that it matters) and am compelled to say my decision was in no way influenced by or for anyone else.

The show answers so many questions and helps me to see the truth of Islam, as opposed to the many rumours that are floating around out there. And most especially in Canada, seeing a woman leading the direction of each show puts to rest all the rumours about how Muslim woman are treated badly.

I really love your videos. I am not a Muslim myself but just learning more about Islamic theology has given me a greater understanding and respect for the faith. And the two Dr. Allys have a really great perspective on life in general.
