For anyone who understood the essence of moderning place between traditional and modern elements in the Islamic world. link

Remember what really happened on 9/11 2001:
The three! WTC buildings came down in controlled demolition!
No doubt at all. Over 1300 architects & engineers confirm it.

Imam Shafi`i: Knowledge is what benefits, knowledge is not what one has memorized. [+]

About This Site ... (more than 750 pages.)

This site is a joint venture. We hold that Islam cannot be reduced to an utopia for the perfect society in this world (dunya), so Islam is not a social-utopian / political project. Instead life in this world (dunya) is a means and support for man in the Hereafter (akhirah). Furthermore Islam is neither limited to the domain of faith (imân), nor to its domain of law (shariah), instead there has to be a revival of Islamic (haqîqah), which is the science of Reality. [more]

Traditional Islam is fully aware of the nature of the (post-)modern world and capable of explaining that world as well as expounding in a contemporary language the teachings of Islam in both its exoteric and esoteric aspects to both the West and the Islamic world itself. SHN

Defending The Transgressed By Censuring The Reckless Against The Killing of Civilians, By Shaykh Mohammad Afifi al-Akiti

Shaykh Gibril F Haddad wrote this introduction to the following elaborate fatwa:
Gentle I am honored to present the following fatwa or "response by a qualified Muslim Scholar" against the killing of civilians by the Oxford-based Malaysian jurist of the Shafi`i School and my inestimable teacher, Shaykh Muhammad Afifi al-Akiti, titled Defending the Transgressed by Censuring the Reckless against the Killing of Civilians.

The Shaykh authored it in a few days, after I asked him to offer some guidance on the issue of targeting civilians and civilian centers by suicide bombing in response to a pseudo-fatwa by a deviant UK-based group which advocates such crimes ... [more]

Contemporary Issues

Some Reflections on Woman-Led Prayer,
by Umm Zaynab Ansari

They believe that Islam needs to be freed from centuries of male-dominated, conservative scholarship to adequately address issues of human rights and gender equality. While this idea might appeal to some, it certainly has its flaws. Many of the Progressives' ideologues envision a wholesale reformulation of Sacred Law. This divine gift of guidance has withstood the test of time immemorial...
As Sidi Nazim Baksh so eloquently put it, "Any movement, artistic or scholarly, whether an idea or a book, that lures people away from the principles of Divine guidance embodied in the Prophetic era, is degeneration - a regression, not progression." [more]

Three Things In This World:

 

Imam Shafi`i said: 3 things in this world have been made lovely to me: avoiding affectation, treating people kindly, and following the way of tasawwuf.*

He also said: I accompanied the Sufis and received from them but three  words: their statement that time is a sword: if you do not  cut it, it cuts you; their statement that if you do not keep  your ego busy with truth it will keep you busy with  falsehood; their statement that deprivation is immunity.

On Extremism, Terrorism

nototerrorismg3H1m

 

There is no legal precedent in the history of Sunni Islam for the tactic of attacking civilians and overtly non-military targets.

The reasons why we deem suicide or 'martyrdom'-operations and the killing of civilians as unlawful and cursed, constituting without exception a reprehensible innovation (bid`ah) in Islam and a crime in general, will be shown below, with proofs and various texts presented, but also diverging opinions for references.

The war on and occupation of Iraq was wrong, illegal; against Islamic law as well as against international law, as lawless an endevour as were the attacks on Afghanistan with the subsequent occupation and negative for international relations between the US and the Muslim World. [more]

The Meaning of Peace
The Islamic world seeks to reassert its independance, and right so. Islam has again become a force to be reckoned with, despite of recent trends of Islamic "fundamentalism", Islamic modernism and the spread of secularism. People need to lay off with (following their leaders of disinformation in) their nonsensical ways of finding fault with Islam* - the last authentic world religion, and see to their governments to leave the Muslim peoples in peace, going about their business. *The faults of Muslims are not the fault of Islam.

Advice by Shaykh Ahmad Zarruq -

 

For Shaykh Ahmad Zarruq meditation is of the concious part of the soul which is prepared to go through the Way of the Truth. When a man investigates himself and discovers his vices and tries to get rid of them, he must not neglect meditation lest he lose his contact with existing objects and become like an animal deprived of the delight of thinking and discovering what is behind the appearances of Existence. 177

A deeper look inside ourselves and at phenomenal existence will make clear our entire dependance upon God, not only in existence but also in the continuation of this existence. God created us and He preserves our existence, and it is up to His absolute will to do whatever He wishes for us and all creation. 150

Organise your time, in a matter appropriate to the times specific needs using gentleness and toleration and be very wary of either harshness or laxity. This is so because too much laxity concerning permissible matters pulls the heart backwards in its journey; until even a man of resolve ends up like a foolish boy.

Muhammad - When They Insult Our Prophet (pbuh) by Nouman Ali Khan

About Us: This is a Sunni site. We believe tasawwuf is part of the Islamic sciences including fiqh and aqidah. We also accept and believe that those who adhere to the Salafi ideological and theological view are part of Ahlu-Sunna wal Jamá`a. Although they hold different views they are our brothers and sisters in Islam. Regarding the Shia, we accept them as Muslims and no comment after that. When it comes to people of Al-Qaeda and other extremist Muslims, we do not agree with them on their views on Jihad nor do we condone their actions. On this site we have rectified various misconceptions and aberrations which usually propagated by the deluded ones. May Allah guide them!

And Allah (may His Majesty be Exalted) knows most and best.

Disclaimer:
Not all the movements using the name, symbols, and language of Islam are of an authentically Islamic character, least of all radical and violent forces that pretend to represent Islam and that distort the teachings of the religion for their own political ends.
