  1. Today is the day of Friday, the day when we Muslims congregate in our masajid (mosques), in order to pray together and to obtain guidance from the two sermons delivered by our local Imams. One of the main purposes of these sermons is to highlight the ills of society, such that we Muslims could work together in seeking a solution.

  5. It is terribly sad that not much of Hisham b. al-Hakam's work has remained, other than a full treatise that Ibn al-Qayyim recorded for polemical purposes. only bits and pieces remain. Whereas the works of 'Abd Allah ibn Yazid, the Khariji theologian, who was the best friend and business-partner of Hisham b. al-Hakam, have been preserved by the Ibadhis of Oman and Algeria. Manuscripts from him are quite extant.
  6. al-Salamu 'Alaykum! Please read my latest blog piece and share if you find it worthwhile! “Muḥammad (s), the young man, pointed to the source of corruption in Arabia; economic inequality. Makkah was a center of trade and in it he witnessed how the majority (Arabs) abused the minority (non-Arabs), how there was no equal pay for equal work, how women and children were treated as commodities. These injustices were all tolerated by that jāhilī society for it was ‘good’ economically, unfortunately these are all normative to present-day capitalist societies as well..

  11. Muḥammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhāb; The 'Father' of Terror? An Unlikely Defense. Shabbir A. Abbas, Graduate Student, Religious Studies - (Islamic Studies + Religion & Conflict)After the seemingly abrupt rise of ISIS in June of 2014 numerous articles and research papers came about trying to explain to the astonished world who ISIS is ideologically and where they originate from. A common trait among these articles and research papers is the linkage of Muḥammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhāb and his namesake the Wahhābī movement to ISIS [and similar groups] hence Muḥammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhāb is infamous
