Qur'an: Fact or Fiction?

Sajid Iqbal

As we enter into the new millennium (Christian Era), we see that many people are confused about the ultimate truth and reality. There are an increasing number of people who claim not to believe in a Creator and believe that there is no Lord who oversees the function of the universe.

Even within those groups of people who submit that there is a supreme Creator are divided into various religions. The main religions of the world are Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism.

The followers of each of these religions will claim that they are on the right path and only they will have success in the hereafter. The question is that how do we determine who is right?

Have You Got It?

Sajid Iqbal

Gang wars, stabbing, shooting, drug dealing, pimping, mugging, rape, every fraud you can think of, abusive language, fornication.....the list is endless.

Why is it that an increasing number of young Muslims are involved in every crime and dodgy behaviour imaginable?

Today nicking a car tape, selling weed, credit card fraud etc. is as common as eating fish and chips!

The sixty million dollar question is that why are Muslims involved in these shady acts? Well, you could say its the way we’ve been brought up, lack of identity, lack of facilities, the mosques are not offering us anything, our parents are uneducated... the list of reasons (or excuses) is larger than Nawaz Sharif’s bank account!

What is Bid'ah?

Sheikh Nuh Ha Mim Keller

The following is the text of a talk given by Shaikh Nuh Ha Mim Keller at Nottingham and Trent University on Wednesday 25th January 1995

There are few topics that generate as much controversy today in Islam as what is sunna and what is bida or reprehensible innovation, perhaps because of the times Muslims live in today and the challenges they face.

Without a doubt, one of the greatest events in impact upon Muslims in the last thousand years is the end of the Islamic caliphate at the first of this century, an event that marked not only the passing of temporal, political authority, but in many respects the passing of the consensus of orthodox Sunni Islam as well.
