  • What they said about Islam

    The Islam that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, (may Allah exalt his mention) is the continuation and culmination of all the preceding revealed religions and hence, it is for all times and all people.

  • Did Islam spread by the sword? Myth and reality

    Among the most widely believed myths about Islam in the West today is the myth of forcible conversion to Islam.

  • The distorted image of Muslim women

    Since the height of the feminist movement in the late 70's there has been a magnifying glass placed over the status of Muslim women.

Unusual in the sense that it is very selective about which items it will magnify; other items it will distort to such a degree that they will.. More

  • The Muslim-Christian dialogue - II

    In reply to your demand to allow Christians in Saudi Arabia to both perform their prayers and build churches in the same manner Muslim minorities are given such religious freedom, we would like to call your attention to a great deal of fallacy in this comparison: 1. Muslim minorities in the West are mostly indigenous. A significant part of their.. More

  • The Muslim-Christian dialogue - I

    Allah Almighty has perfected for us our religion, and completed upon us His favour and has chosen Islam to be our religion. Our belief in His Oneness and in the Messengers whom He sent to His creation is a part of our Islamic creed. For some time, Muslims and Christians lived together in harmony.

  • Equality between men and women - II

    The Status of Women in Islam: Facing this dark history, Islam placed women in their natural position and returned to them their rights and status which were seized from them in the darkness of ignorance and corrupt customs and traditions.

  • Some Misconceptions about Women in Islam -I

    Islam gave women rights and privileges at a time when only barbaric manners and values dominated. Yet, some people argue that Islam has alienated women in some domains. In fact, this belief is a misconception. People who say so, may have read about it in a magazine or seen it on TV. A quick examination of the issues judged as unjust to women will certainly.. More

  • Hijab is a woman's real beauty

    It often occurs to me that many of our sisters in Islam are not properly encouraged once they begin to observe the requirements of Hijab. It may be that a sister has been obliged to wear the Hijab without truly pondering over its superiority. Perhaps she has reached the age of puberty and her parents have instructed her to wear it. Perhaps she has.. More
