I B N R U S H D: The King Philosopher

First Published in Islamic Horizons Sept/Oct 1998, pp. 48-49.)

This brief article is dedicated to the memory of Ibn Rushd (1128-1198). On the 800 hundredth anniversary of his death, I would like to remember the contributions of this great Muslim. Abul-Waleed Muhammad Ibn Rushd was born in Cardova, Spain in 520 A.H. (1128 C.E.).

During his life time Ibn Rushd worked as a Qadi (judge) in Morocco and Spain and was for over ten years the Chief Qadi of Cardova. He was also a physician and adviser at the courts of the Moroccan Caliph and the Spanish Caliph.

These are strange and difficult times. One might have thought that, in a globalizing age, ideological debate would have focused on how we make our economic and political choices. On the horizon loomed what seemed an unavoidable, direct confrontation between the promoters of transnational, neo-liberal free market capitalism and the defenders of an economy with a human face, of an economic order inspired by another kind of globalization, based on human principles, on an ethical approach to economics and politics.

Human Sexuality and the Shariat


Separate Gender Identity

Allah created 2 different and distinct genders as a pair (75:39, 53:45, 92:3). The male is different from the female (3:36) although ultimately both are from the same source (4:1, 7:189, 16:72, 30:12, 39:6). Each gender is encouraged to maintain its biological, psychological, emotional, and social identity.

Benedict XVI and Islam

Washington, D.C. - The primary purpose and message of Benedict XVI's address in Regensburg, Germany was not about Islam, referred to in only four paragraphs of his eight-page lecture. And yet, this papal address to a university audience turned into an occasion for an international protest across the Muslim world. Morocco withdrew its ambassador to the Vatican, heads of state from Turkey to Indonesia voiced criticism, the Sheikh of Al-Azhar commented on the Pope's ignorance of Islam, and leaders of Muslim organisations called for a public apology.

Women's Protection Bill: Perception and Realities

The Women's Protection Bill (WPB) was enacted on November 15, 2006, shortly after it was introduced before the National Assembly of Pakistan for general debate. Most surprisingly, no debate took place. The leading members of the ruling alliance, including the former president Leghari, even General Musharraf's ministers, never showed up.

Islam, Postmodernity and Freedom

(1) What is post-modernism? Does it have a universal definition?

A question asking for any definition that is universal implies the existence of an essential quality that transcends local context. This would according to the postmodern dogma constitute an unforgivable sin. The primary moral agenda behind postmodern attempts to destabilize the foundations of modern knowledge and modern ethics is to challenge essential theorizing claiming universal applicability. The postmodern thinker seeks to privilege the now and the here – the local over the global.

Unity Through Schools of Thoughts Abdal Hakim Murad at International Islamic Unity Conference, 1996

Bismillah. Alhamdulillah. Was-salaat was-salaam alaa Rasul-illah wa alihi wa sahbihi wa man walaa.

In our gathering today, we are showing, of course, the reality and not the Hollywood myth about our Islamic faith. At this rich and very wonderful and blessed time of the year, we Muslims always reverently and with love, call to mind the birthday of our blessed Prophet sallallahu `alayhi was-sallam - the one who is dearer to us than our selves, our fathers, our families, and all mankind.
