Could Marwan Barghouthi be the Ace up Trump's Sleeve?

Could Marwan Barghouthi be the Ace up Trump's Sleeve?

Yvonne Ridley THE view on Donald Trump's first 100 days from this side of the Atlantic has been a bit like watching a car crash in slow motion. We've had the bombing of Syria and the beating of ever louder war drums towards North Korea, an on-off love in with Russia and China and a few u-turns over Muslim immigration and let's not forget the big, beautiful wall which will probably not be built.

Graffiti Boys of Syria

By Yvonne Ridley Around four years ago I was told exactly how the Syrian Revolution began and who started it.

Time to Tear Down the Barriers of Fear

Time to Tear Down the Barriers of Fear

By Yvonne Ridley SO we might never know why someone hired a car and committed the murderous attack on a group of innocent people in London before turning his attentions on a policeman stabbing him to death. And yet the media has delivered a huge goal to Daesh by its round-the-clock coverage examining in minute detail every aspect of the 90 second attack.

Muhammad [Pbuh]: World at the threshhold of His Appearance

AT the end of the sixth century AD humanity was facing a very depressed and deprived condition. There was no Guidance from its Creator and Sustainer to guide its destiny as all were “lost” or mutilated due to human interpolation.

By Sheikh Mikaeel Olivieri (Abdur Rahman) Almighty Allah has put us in this world for a short amount of time. In our time here, we must quickly assess and examine our situation.

Evidence of Prophet Muhammad's Prophethood

Evidence of Prophet Muhammad's Prophethood

ALL prophets came with signs and evidences furnished by God to show that the prophets were truly who they claimed to be. Among these signs were miracles that defied the laws of nature and were witnessed by the people. Generally, miracles are experienced only by the people who were there when the miracles actually occurred. Allah, however, furnished Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) with a miracle that would endure for all time. That miracle is the Qur'ân.

The Rights and Duties of Workers in the Light of the Teachings of Muhammad (PBUH)

The Rights and Duties of Workers in the Light of the Teachings of Muhammad (PBUH)

ONE of the characteristics of the teachings of Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) and the commandments of Islamic Shariah is that they are compatible with the conditions and requirements of all ages. The events and annals from the time of the advent of Islam bear testimony to this fact. The world has witnessed catastrophic events through the vicissitude of time and life, but the teachings of Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) are still fresh, vibrant, and relevant.
