Where Towing The Line Of Deviant Powers Ends Up

Imran Khan

Shawwal 22, 14452024-05-01

When some Muslims mention power, they only think in terms of human beings having power on earth. Allah is not part of their thinking. This leads them to deviant behaviour and results in endless suffering here as well as the punishment of Allah in the hereafter.

Imran Khan

Shawwal 22, 14452024-05-01

Muslims today suffer from the “Israeli mentality” that the noble Qur’an describes (2:47). This has to do with the characteristics of a leader. Just like the Bani Israel, Muslims think of a person qualified to be leader who has wealth and the means. This explains the Muslims’ plight today.

Muslim Leaders And Leadership Traits

Imran Khan

Ramadan 22, 14452024-04-01

Imran Khan

Sha'ban 20, 14452024-03-01

Elections: Avoiding The Lesser And Greater Evils

Imran Khan

Sha'ban 20, 14452024-03-01

Muslims living as minorities in non-Muslim societies are caught on the horns of a dilemma. The choice is always between the lesser of the two evils. This is an illusion. Muslims should open a debate among themselves and non-Muslims that follow the scripture to chalk out a way forward based on Divine guidance.

Beware Of False Scholars Promoting American Islam

Salina Khan

Rajab 20, 14452024-02-01

Imran Khan

Jumada' al-Ula' 17, 14452023-12-01

The question of land ownership lies at the root of most conflicts in the world. In North America, the European settler colonialists were highly successful in decimating the indigenous population. In South Africa, Black racism is driving its policies disregarding the rights of other people.

Imran Khan

Rabi' al-Thani 17, 14452023-11-01

Most Muslims in South Africa and around the world have a positive view of the African National Congress-led government. The reality is very different. It is time to have a more realistic assessment of the ANC and see its Black African nationalism for what it is: racism.

Zafar Bangash

Sha'ban 09, 14442023-03-01

Every Muslim has deep attachment to the noble Qur’an. In Ramadan, Muslims intensify their reading of the noble Book. It is, however, meant to be understood to implement its teachings in life. The new, contemporary translation by Imam Muhammad al Asi will help them achieve this objective.

Islamic Movements and Elections in the Muslim World

Ayman Ahmed

Jumada' al-Akhirah 19, 14422021-02-01

Among many trouble spots in the world, two stand out: Kashmir and Palestine. People in both locales face a ruthless enemy hell-bent on wiping out their identity. The people of Kashmir have been struggling for their basic rights for more than 70 years. They need our support.

Clarity of Thought Essential for Muslims

Zafar Bangash

Yusuf Dhia-Allah

Rabi' al-Awwal 04, 14412019-11-01

Most Muslims are unhappy with the Saudi occupation of the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah but they do not know how to change the situation. We speculate on what could happen if three countries were to take action…

Jihad Jones

Court preachers spend their life justifying the criminal conduct of kings and assorted tyrants for a small price. However, such conduct costs the Ummah a great deal .

Iran and Turkey – Part I

Muhammad al-Hashimi

Rajab 25, 14402019-04-01
