Islamophobia and anti-Islamophobia: Both to Stop Islam

Nuh (Noah) (peace upon him) presented Islam to his nation --Tauheed (there is no god but one Allah-- and asked them to surrender to Allah to attain peace (Islam), Risalah (I am a Prophet and Messenger of Allah), and Aakhirah (the end of this world and the Day of Judgement when everyone will be accountable and will be rewarded or punished according to his/her deeds). He said to his nation, “That you may worship (obey) none but Allah or else I fear for you the chastisement of a grievous day.

Palestinian Commitments Lasting a Lifetime

By Yvonne Ridley WHEN I signed my first petition demanding justice for the Palestinian people I was a 13-year-old schoolgirl and it marked the start of what has become a lifetime commitment. From reading about the atrocities of Sabra and Shatila through to personally eye witnessing the aftermath of the Jenin Massacre and climbing on board a boat to break the Siege of Gaza, I thought that little more could shock me as I tried to raise awareness of such breathtaking injustices.

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) : War Etiquettes and Our Future

The kindness and compassion of Prophet Muhammadﷺ (peace upon him) was such that he commanded ethical principles in events requiring physical fighting. For example: “While entering the enemy area, do not raise your hand against any child, old person, patient or wounded person. Do not raise your eyes towards a woman. Do not cut any fruit-bearing trees. Do not sacrifice any milk-giving animal, and do not ruin a population.

The Implosion of Western Society (Part 2)

By Elder George THE removal of restraints on female behavior provides women of the Western influenced world limitless opportunities to make whoopee as they increasingly and uninhibitedly express their emotions and desires. Even the so called enlightened women with New Age values say with spiritual conviction that right and wrong or good and bad don’t exist. Isn’t that wonderful?

In Support of Donald Trump's Order for Religious Freedom

Jawed Anwar I fully support Donald Trump's executive order boosting religious freedom by erasing IRS restrictions against political activities by tax-exempt religious organizations. He announced "no one should be censoring sermons” The order fulfilled a campaign pledge, during a Rose Garden National Prayer ceremony on May 4, attended by religious leaders, activists, and other leaders.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Rights of Women and Slaves

WHEN Muhammadﷺﷺ became Prophet, women of that time were deprived of their human rights. They were just a comfort material for men and a source of entertainment. The men kept and treated them as they wished. Men were disappointed and ashamed at the birth of a girl and buried them alive. In the Qur’an, Allah says: “And when the girl [who was] buried alive is asked for what sin she was killed” (81: 8-9).

What we should be teaching our Children?

By Imam Zaid Shakir WHEN we talk about Islamic education and our children, the discussion usually revolves around strictly academic issues related to technical aspects of curriculum development, testing standards and methodologies, balancing between secular and religious education, and similar concerns. Sometimes we miss the greater objective of an Islamic education.

The Implosion of Western Society (Part 1)

Elder George THE past few years has seen a relatively limited posting of essays on my website ( because of what I considered a lack of involvement by the readership. After positing more than 160 essays and not having created much of a following I decided to take a hiatus. Then recently I thought of the advice of a friend who indicated the importance of getting the message out regardless of the immediate response. He said people will take action at the opportune time.

Beyond Feminism: Our Sisters in Islam

“Surely the men who submit (to Allah) and the women who submit (to Allah), the men who have faith and the women who have faith, the men who are obedient and the women who are obedient, the men who are truthful and the women who are truthful, the men who are steadfast and the women who are steadfast,

Character of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) : An example for the World

IT is strange that, with all that has been written about Prophet Muhammadﷺ (peace upon him), the world still does not know about the unparalleled personality of the last messenger of Allah and compassionate leader of humanity. Allah has given him the title of “mercy for the two worlds” and has called him gracious and merciful.

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.

ICNA-MAS Convention: Growing Numbers, Speakers, and Content

Syed Jawed Anwar Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) USA and Muslim American Society (MAS) organized its 42nd convention on Easter weekend (14-16 April) in Baltimore, Maryland. I attended after more than decade when it was in Hartford, Connecticut. At that time, the convention attracted under 10,000. After a few years the numbers crossed 10,000, and the convention organizers changed its venue to the Convention Center, Baltimore. Now the numbers are over 20,000.

Graffiti Boys of Syria

By Yvonne Ridley Around four years ago I was told exactly how the Syrian Revolution began and who started it. After investigating the story I realised it challenges supporters of the Assad regime and silences those conspiracy theorists who blame everyone from the CIA to Mossad, the Saudis and Russian intelligence.

Syria: Planned Genocide and Eviction of People to Expand Israel

Jawed Anwar From the last few years till now, 470,000 people were killed, including 55,000 children in Syria. 13.5 million fled and were displaced all over the world. Among them 6 million are internally displaced. 4.6 million are refugees outside Syria but mostly in neighboring Muslim countries.

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. The first three days, in the absence of any real facts other than the subsequent identities of those killed and how they died, was all speculative.
