Wishing all our readers and well-wishers a blessed Eid al Adha

Crescent International

Dhu al-Hijjah 21, 14372016-09-23

Eid al Adha commemorates the sacrifice of Prophets Ibrahim and Ismail (as). As Muslims celebrate this great event, they must keep in mind that without sacrifice, nothing can be achieved.

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Hijjah 17, 14362015-10-01

Muslim students in French schools forced to wear colored discs for not eating pork!

Crescent International

Dhu al-Hijjah 14, 14362015-09-28

Pig is a filthy animal. Muslims and observant Jews do not consume its meat. In the West, especially in Europe, pig meat is much cherished. It is their choice but a school in France forced Muslim and Jewish students to wear colored discs so that canteen staff would not serve them pork meat at lunchtime. It outraged parents and revived memories of the Nazis' practice of forcing Jews to wear the yellow star during WWII.

ISIS making mockery of Islamic principles and concepts

Crescent International

Ramadan 03, 14352014-07-01

The Muslim Ummah is faced with many problems but often Muslims themselves are to blame. Consider the latest phenomenon of the thug al-Baghdadi and his declaration of the Khilafah. The noble concept of the Khialfah is being ridiculed by mass murderers and rapists using Islamic terms. The ill-conceived project is bound to collapse soon and with it will die the misplaced hopes of thousands of Muslim youth.

US and Muslims both facing crises in Iraq

Zafar Bangash

Jumada' al-Akhirah 25, 14262005-08-01

America’s humiliation in Iraq has led some observers to describe it as another Vietnam. This is not quite accurate; the US’s Iraqi experience is much closer to the Russians’ in Afghanistan, with very similar outcomes, both positive and negative. Should the US military stay in Iraq extend for a decade or more, as did the Red Army’s in Afghanistan, there will perhaps be noUnited States left to return to, at least as far as its superpower pretensions are concerned.

Muslims facing Western security measures before performing Hajj

Dhu al-Hijjah 03, 14222002-02-16

In addition to suffering caused by the Saudis’ well-known incompetence, this year the hujjaj are being confronted by another ordeal: new security measures in Jeddah. Ostensibly intended to prevent pilgrims from disappearing after completing their Hajj, the plan is both sinister and degrading.
