MODERN ISLÂM

However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one. The essay below is the conclusion of the ninth part in a series by Takuan Seiyo. See the list at the bottom of this post for links to the previous installments. Their main endeavor has been to enforce their compulsory e. K and discretionary e. Nor the evils of the worldwide Islamic Inquisition which — not in the 16th century but now, in the 21st, condemns Muslim apostates to barbaric execution. Instead, aggressive White androphobes of all genders which I can no longer count are decimating the philogynous and egalitarian West.

Rough, light brown, somewhat in parts dark coloured papyrus. The Byzantine protocol in Greek is written in four lines with brown ink parallel to the vertical fibres. In the last line of the protocol text an line in Arabic in black ink is parallel to the vertical fibres, which shows the typical writing features of the first half of the 1st century of hijra and is partly dotted.

This papyrus deals with a dispute and its possible resolution. It is also the earliest papyrus to mention the phrase “peace be upon him who follows the guidance”; part of the phrase constructed as lacuna. In its content, it is similar to the Qurra papyrus such as this from 91 AH. The Arabic text is written in on the recto in black ink at right-angles to the horizontal fibres; the Greek text running in the same direction is written in the brown ink. The verso is blank.

Predestination in Islam

Thousands of British Muslims gather to denounce Isis and call for ‘peaceful caliphate’ Despite an appeal to all UN member states, the authors expressed regret that only seven countries agreed to participate in the study – three from the EU and four from the Middle East and North Africa. Professor Hamed el-Said, of Manchester Metropolitan University, and terrorism expert Richard Barrett met most of the returnees in prison or under the watchful eye of security services.

Following the declaration of the so-called Islamic State in , the group produced a huge amount of propaganda seeking to attract Muslims with the promise of life free of supposed Western oppression, lived in comfort and peace.

Assalamu ‘alaykum wa rahamatullahi wa barakatuhu: 1. Introduction. The history of the quest for the historical Muhammad in the modern Western literature has its origins from the time (c. CE) of Sir William Muir [1] and Alois Sprenger. [2]Both of them suspected that much of the Islamic traditions on Muhammad, which were accepted by Muslims as authentic, were in fact forged.

Islamic State or IS , declaring itself a worldwide caliphate. I do not recommend using the term Islamic State because it blurs the lines between Islam, Muslims, and Islamists. The Arabs call it ‘Daesh’ and I will be calling them the ‘Daesh cutthroats. For their guiding principles, the leaders of the Islamic State The group circulates images of Wahhabi religious textbooks from Saudi Arabia in the schools it controls.

Videos from the group’s territory have shown Wahhabi texts plastered on the sides of an official missionary van. Saudi practices also followed by the group include the establishment of religious police to root out “vice” and enforce attendance at salat prayers, the widespread use of capital punishment, and the destruction or re-purposing of any non-Sunni religious buildings. It condemns later caliphates and the Ottoman Empire for deviating from what it calls pure Islam, and seeks to revive the original Wahhabi project of the restoration of the caliphate governed by strict Salafist doctrine.

Following Salafi-Wahhabi tradition, ISIL condemns the followers of secular law as disbelievers, putting the current Saudi Arabian government in that category.

Literature and Terrorism In an age of terror, how does literature help us transcend our reality, lend perspective to our confusion by pulling us into the past and other cultures, and give expression to our anguish and fear through catharsis? They survived it; so can we. In this course we will define terrorism the way the Arabs define it, as any organized violence, by an individual, group or state, legitimate or illegitimate, against a civilian population, either intentional or unintentional.

Black Water is both a personal and stylistic meditation on terror as well as an indirect indictment of the terror a powerful political leader has over an innocent civilian. Sometimes real life provides so much terror that the reader hides in literature for escape, seeking fantasy, happy endings, funny, harmless stories that eschew the turmoil of an unlivable situation. No one can take too much of one thing.

At the siege of Vienna in Islam seemed poised to overrun Christian Europe. We are in a new phase of a very old war.

Muslim] who was slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once. It is a hard fight. It’s extremely difficult, day after day, when you face people and say, “If Sharia law is taken to its logic this is what things are going to look like” and you come across people who say, “You got it all wrong.

I wasn’t used to arguing with vice presidents. People who are viewed as “insulting” Islam are regularly threatened with violence, including death. This happens inside and outside Islamic countries, occurring in the form of legal sanctions in the former, with efforts to institutionalize such prohibitions everywhere, so that Islam could not be criticized even, for instance, in the United States. Yet most of the genuine insults to Islam these days come from Muslims themselves.

If anyone’s purpose was to discredit Islam by vicious actions done in its name, there is now abundant evidence that this is the program of many Muslims, including several internationally recognized Islamic states. In April , the radical Islamic group in Nigeria, Boko Haram “Education is forbidden” kidnapped girls out of a government school in the north of the country. The leader of the group, Abubakar Shekau, subsequently asserted, in a videotaped message, that the girls were now slaves and would be sold as slaves.

This must be cold comfort for the anti-American ideologues who want to convey the impression that slavery was invented in America and was a unique evil imposed by white people on Africans, and that one of the worst and most unforgivable things about slavery was sexual expoitation. Now Abubakar Shekau openly proclaims slavery and sexual slavery part of the program of Islamic revival, and he is correct in terms of traditional Islamic law, where slaves are indeed the sexual property of their owners.

Although Michelle Obama joined a Twitter campaign to “free our girls,” the girls mostly have not been freed, but have vanished into forced conversion, forced marriages, and slavery.

Islam in the News (May 2013)

Islamism has been defined as: Maajid Nawaz , a former Islamist turned critic [23]. Subsequently, clarified to be “the desire to impose any given interpretation of Islam on society”.

Another major division within Islamism is between what Graham E.

Fuller has described as the fundamentalist “guardians of the tradition” Salafis , such as those in the Wahhabi movement and the “vanguard of change and Islamic reform” centered around the Muslim Brotherhood. At the same time, their popularity is such that no government can call itself democratic that excludes mainstream Islamist groups. Political aspects of Islam The relationship between the notions of Islam and Islamism has been subject to disagreement.

Hayri Abaza argues that the failure to distinguish between Islam and Islamism leads many in the West to support illiberal Islamic regimes, to the detriment of progressive moderates who seek to separate religion from politics. Olivier Roy believes “the socioeconomic realities that sustained the Islamist wave are still here and are not going to change: Compared to Western societies, “[w]hat is striking about the Islamic world is that They determine how one dresses, what one eats.

In these areas, they are incredibly successful. Even if the Islamists never come to power, they have transformed their countries.

Q&A: What you need to know about sharia in Aceh

Human rights activists doubt such a claim, saying non-Muslim offenders are mostly deprived of legal assistance and thus pressured to be tried under sharia. The news about the flogging of the couple, identified as David Silitonga, 61, and Tjia Nyu Hwa, 45, is by no means the first of its kind. Sharia in Aceh has been controversial ever since it was first introduced shortly after the downfall of Soeharto in , when Jakarta was struggling to cope with an armed insurgency there.

Pakistan’s top human rights watchdog on Friday expressed “alarm and disappointment” over a declaration by the Council of Islamic Ideology that DNA tests are not acceptable as primary evidence in determining rape cases. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan described the Council’s decision as “regressive” and “unkind to rape victims”. In a statement, the Commission said: In these circumstances, it would be foolish to not depend on all the evidence that is available, especially something as incontrovertible as DNA test results,” the statement said.

The Council of Islamic Ideology, a constitutional body that advises the Pakistan government, announced on Wednesday that DNA tests cannot be used as primary evidence in rape cases. DNA can be used as secondary or supporting evidence in rape cases, the Council ruled. Refuting its importance and much more crucially, suggesting that it is made inadmissible as primary evidence helps the rapist and no one else,” the HRCP said.

It further said the Council of Islamic Ideology’s recommendation refuses to take into account the rights of rape victims and the need to punish criminals who are proven guilty beyond doubt Man dies after being forced to drink acid, killer suspected him of having an affair with his wife For more on honor related violence, click here.

Will the Labour government block Adani going ahead if elected following the UN’s report findings? The proposal was discussed with members of the Australian Jewish community but were any Australian Palestinians consulted? Is the proposal still alive or was it just an idea floated for votes in the Wentworth by-election? Are you aware that calling for a plebiscite for a republic is unlawful and is unconstitutional.

Do you believe the federal Police should have a serious talk to him?

Islamism is a concept whose meaning has been debated in both public and academic contexts. The term can refer to diverse forms of social and political activism advocating that public and political life should be guided by Islamic principles or more specifically to movements which call for full implementation of is commonly used interchangeably with the terms political Islam or.

Isis: UN study finds foreign fighters in Syria ‘lack basic understanding of Islam’

The Prime Minister says it was a mistake to invite the Shady Sheik to Kirribilli House and condemns the Sheik’s teaching on gays. but the Shady Sheik’s views are the views of Islam.

The phrase means “the divine decree and the predestination”; al-qadr derives from a root that means to measure out. Muslims believe that the divine destiny is when God wrote down in the Preserved Tablet “al-lawh al-mahfooz” several other spellings are used for this in English all that has happened and will happen, which will come to pass as written. According to this belief, a person’s action is not caused by what is written in the preserved tablet, but rather the action is written in the tablet because God already knows all occurrences without the restrictions of time.

The phrase reflects a Muslim doctrine that Allah has measured out the span of every person’s life, their lot of good or ill fortune, and the fruits of their efforts. Were we not with you? If thy Lord had so willed, He could have made mankind one people: Except those on whom thy Lord hath bestowed His Mercy: Verily, that is easy for Allah.
