* living islam - Islamic tradition *

 

Input Islam :

- this website supports the idea that:
 • Islam has not come as a utopia for the perfect society in this world (dunya), instead it sees this world as a support for the Hereafter. Furthermore Islam is neither limited to the domain of faith (imân), nor to its domain of law (sharî`ah), and without actualizing the Islamic haqîqah (Islam in its aspect of divine truth and knowledge) man will miss his way.

 • Personal opinions are mostly deficient for the advancement on the Way, they are but a veil, as they are not rooted in the Islamic Tradition. This affair is a spiritual science and practice - and just like other sciences, it has its fundamentals, its branches, its predictable results ( bi-idhni-LLahi), it has to be studied and implemented and it has its experts, deriving from the blessings (barakah) of the Messenger of Allah .
