The Pacifism of Islaam

E-mail Print PDF

According to the ’Qura~n, war represents an “unwanted obligation” which has to be absolutely carried out with strict observance of particular humane and moral values and resorted only when it is inevitable. In a verse, it is explained that those who start wars are the disbelievers and that God does not approve wars: “…Each time they kindle the fireofwar,Allah extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. Allah does not love corrupters.”(Chapter of Almm-idah, verse 64)

A closer examination of Prophet Mu’hammad’s life reveals that war is a method resorted for defensive purposes only in unavoidable situations.

User Rating: / 4

The essence of every industry and company lies within finance. Due to the great influence from globalisation, Islaamic finance has grown exponentially in recent times. This has caused a great influx of interest in the subject. It is a vital issue since it highlights an aspect that is a part of every individual’s daily livelihood; money.

There has been controversy in regards to whether contemporary Islaamic financeis truly abiding by Sharee‘ah or is it just another business tactic. Attention to this has been manifested due to the similarities in practicality between conventional financing and some contemporary Islaamic financing institutions.

A quiet room, with only the sounds of rain falling
A window to look out of and see birds chirping, one another they are calling

In the Middle of Nowhere: Essence of Life in a Globalised World

E-mail Print PDF

At the threshold of the 21st century, humanity enters its third phase of the undoubtedly dynamic development which is broadly considered the consequence of ‘Western Civilisation’ that was modelled according to sequential notions, starting with ‘Renaissance’, ‘Age of Enlightenment’, ‘Industrialisation’ and ‘Western Modernity’ in its successive discourses in the 20th century.

Chronology and Terminology
Renaissance is perceived as the cornerstone of those sequential processes that looked back into the ancients’ heritage to restore. Nevertheless, it is claimed that ‘Middle Ages’ intermediated the ‘Classic Antiquity’ and ‘Renaissance’. Those ages are known also as ‘Dark Ages’ but an inquisitive question rises: were they really dark ones?

Muslims in the World: No Fear of the Future

User Rating: / 2

As I wake up everyday, get up and begin my morning routine, I sometimes feel as though I have it harder than most.
As a Muslim woman in an American society, staying true to my beliefs and representing my faith can develop into a challenge.

Since 9/11, Muslims have been viewed in such a negative light, that it has become imperative on each and every Muslim man and woman to represent their faith with the utmost dignity and decorum. With all the ignorance we face on a daily basis, this is sometimes difficult.
