From Holy War to Holy Peace

Peace is holy, war is not. Nevertheless, holy war is today a main theme in the Western media. Wrongly seen by Westerners as an Islamic innovation, for Muslims it is a bitter reminder of the Crusades of the 12th and 13th centuries. But the Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) have more to say about holy peace than holy war, and this is what we need to better explore in our religious and political discourse.

Daring to Be European Muslims

"The hatred of Islam and Muslims is endemic on the European psyche; endemic even if at times it becomes an epidemic. We are living through such an epidemic now." — Yaqub Zaki1

"A country that accepts migrants, however conspicuously economic their primary motives, has the right to expect that they engage in some form of cultural migration as well." — Abdal Hakim Murad2

"The West is expectant with Islam." — Bediuzzaman Said Nursi

Is Vegetarianism Un-Islamic?

(in Steven Sapontzis, editor, Food for Thought: The Debate on Vegetarianism,

Amherst, NY: Prometheus Books, 2004, pp. 209-222)



All your life you have been drinking the blood and eating the flesh of animals without realizing what you have been doing. You love flesh and enjoy murder. If you had any conscience or any sense of justice, if you were born as a true human being, you would think about this. God is looking at me and you. Tomorrow his truth and his justice will inquire into this. You must realize this.

ARABIC WRITING

The Arabs gave to a large part of the world not only a religion - Islam - but also a language and an alphabet. Where the Muslim religion went, the Arabic language and Arabic writing also went. Arabic became and has remained the national language - the mother tongue - of North Africa and all the Arab countries of the Middle East.

Ethics of Shari`ah and Our Responsibility*

Almighty Allah says: (Surely Allah enjoins justice, kindness and doing of good to kith and kin, and forbids all that is shameful, evil, and oppressive. He exhorts you so that you may be mindful) (An-Nahl 16:90).

This verse is known as the most comprehensive verse of the Qur’an. It summarizes basic Islamic principles and values: `adl (justice) and ihsan (compassion). These should be the overriding principles for everything that we say and everything that we do, individually or collectively.
