Can't agree more, and while there is one solid base, the globalisation should make us less rigid in some fields, because that's unfortunately how some hanafis have become. We should learn and agree to disagree, and then create the conditions to nurture a new rising generation. The dynamics of our current world has so much potential for the ummah. We can use it, or dynamics can use us.

History tells us that irrespective of it being material plenty or intellectual superiority’ ,it keeps rotating between nations. No one is granted monopoly over anything. Nations rise and fall,fortunes keep changing,geographical borders appear and then disappears as easily,great minds suddenly start emerging in a nation or locality followed by the same level of stagnation after a while...

Indian subcontinent,once the hub of Ilm and tazkia is similarly not the same anymore. The Mongolian invasion of Central Asia and Iraq sent waves of scholars to a more politically stable Indian subcontinent,then ruled by Muslims.The rulers were friendly towards uluma and fully supportive,gave them lofty positions and gave them enough opportunities to use their potentials. That was the beginning of a unique golden age of scholarly activities in India.

As we can see,things have changed,the centres of power have changed,the flow of wealth and opportunities have changed..and the general atmosphere have changed along with it. Politically and economically the currents of history are moving back towards the nerve centres of Islam,the Arab mainland. The current turmoil in Arab lands is giving birth to a new awakening of minds and spirits. The events are forcing us to go back to basics..basic Iman,basic simple & straightforward aqaed,the ways of Sahaba رضى الله عنهم اجمعين..

As is said : “ The last part of this umma can not succeed until they adopt what made the earliest part of this umma succcessful”.

Probably the time for philosophical discourses is past...

The tajdeedi (revival) efforts by Ml Ilyas ra is the best example of ‘going back to basics’ in our times. واللہ اعلم
