Cristianesimo e Islam, l'Intreccio Religioso e Secolare. Hijab, l'abbigliamento delle donne musulmane: islamico o culturale? 5 Things You Need To Know About Sharia Law. The legacy of the Crusades in contemporary Muslim world. It is always debatable whether the Crusades remain relevant in Arab political rhetoric.

The legacy of the Crusades in contemporary Muslim world

Islamists in general believe that the Crusades are relevant because they resemble - in their minds - current Western and Israeli wars in our region. Many Islamists still label Western governments, and even Christians as a whole, as "Crusaders". The meaning and evolution of the word ‘Mosque’ There has been in recent times much confusion regarding the origin of the English word mosque.

The meaning and evolution of the word ‘Mosque’

The word mosque is a translation of the Arabic word masjid (مَسجِد). The word masjid in Arabic comes from the verb sajada (سَجَدَ) which means ‘to prostrate’, and a masjid is the place in which people prostrate. It can loosely be translated more generally as ‘a place of worship’. The conspiracy surrounding the English translation begins by asserting that the word ‘mosque’ carries with it an islamophobic history with its origins in the Spanish reconquista which saw the end of Islamic Spain.

Etymology of the English word 'mosque' This etymology is incorrect.

Etymology of the English word 'mosque'

The Spanish word for "mosquito" is mosquito and literally means “little fly”. This is a case where the English language borrowed the word directly from the Spanish. The word for “fly” in Spanish is mosca, which is derived from the Latin musca. The Conference of Ulama in Grozny: the Reaction of the Islamic World.

Transcript > Rethinking Reform

SHAYKH HAMZA YUSUF HANSON: Bismillah al-Rahman Al-Rahim. Islam needs a restoration, not a reformation. Having been invited to speak in many debates and lectures about the question of whether there should be a reformation of Islam, I've observed that it is not a question that I or most Muslims raise, but one that is thrust upon us by others.

Islam needs a restoration, not a reformation

Generally, Muslims are well aware that there is no problem with Islam. Muslims understand that Islam defines human purpose in the cosmos, and offers a complete and consistent way of life that is designed to lead to human happiness and justice in this life and the hereafter. I sapienti sunniti disconoscono Casa Saud - l'interferenza. L’aggressione saudita al mondo sciita – a partire dalla eliminazione di ogni forma di dissenso interno al regime di Casa Saud – è stata presentata dai media occidentali, compresa una larga parte della stampa alternativa, come uno ‘’scontro settario fra sciiti e sunniti’’.

I sapienti sunniti disconoscono Casa Saud - l'interferenza

Questa interpretazione – a mio avviso grave e fallace – denota una totale incomprensione della dialettica interna al mondo arabo e, più in generale, musulmano. LA PARALISI ARABA. Note a margine della lettura de “L’infelicità araba” di Samir Kassir, Einaudi, Torino, 2006 Il mondo arabo consta di una ventina di stati per una popolazione di poco superiore a quella degli Stati Uniti d’America (più di 350 milioni), per il 60% posti nel Nord Africa e per il 40% nel Medio Oriente.

New Islamic Directions - Imam Zaid Shakir

The Myth of the Caliphate. In 1924, Turkish leader Kemal Ataturk officially abolished the Ottoman caliphate. Today, most Western discussions of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), the extremist group that has declared a caliphate across much of Iraq and Syria, begin by referencing this event as if it were a profound turning point in Islamic history. Some contemporary Islamists think of it this way, too: there’s a reason, for example, that Lion Cub, the Muslim Brotherhood’s children’s publication, once awarded the “Jewish” “traitor” Ataturk multiple first prizes in its “Know the Enemies of Your Religion” contest.

The caliphate’s more recent history under the Ottomans shows why the institution might be better thought of as a Your subscription includes: Full website and iPad access Magazine issues New! Some Thoughts on Reforming Islam interpretations and Fighting Terrorism. Former Special Operations commander for the United States in the Middle East General Michael Nagata once said that he has just begun to understand ISIL’s appeal. “We have not defeated the idea. We do not even understand the idea”, he said in describing the current conditions of fighting ISIL. And Paris tells us that enough time was wasted since 9.11 to really figure out what is going on. Only a real Islamic caliphate can stand up to the sham of ISIL.

At eleven o’clock in the morning on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, guns across Europe fell silent. An assassination in Sarajevo that had turned into a grinding, grueling conflict was coming to a diplomatic close—but it was not over.

Ahmed El Shamsy, The Canonization of Islamic Law: A Social and Intellectual History. Cambridge and New York: Cambridge University Press, 2013. Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this book? Ahmed El Shamsy (AES): Legal history is often dry stuff: it is full of theories, concepts, and institutions, and heavy with jargon. No, the “Birmingham Quran” does not predate Muhammad. If you have followed the news over the last week, then there’s little doubt you may have seen some of the following headlines: Fragments of World’s Oldest Koran May Predate Muhammad Birmingham’s ancient Koran ‘could rewrite history of Islam’ Carbon dating suggest ‘world’s oldest’ Koran could be older than the Prophet Apparently this ancient Quran found in England is older than the Prophet Muhammed!

How Should Rationalists Deal with Dogmatism? The Case of the Birmingham Quran Pages. One of the reasons I do not to write about early Islamic history is that I find it very difficult to manage the constant clash of faith claims and appeals to empirical evidence. When it comes to religion in general, Islam in particular, and the origins of Islam even more specifically, scholars find it difficult to recognize how their non-rational commitments direct their reasoning. Being able to set aside those commitments is even harder. Coran_authentique.pdf. PARLALEX - Archivio di legislazione comparata. La famiglia giuridica islamica.

La scuola Mutazilita MUTAZILITA La prima vera e propria scuola teologica, quella dei mutaziliti, sorta intorno alla metà del IX secolo, tentò per prima una grande mediazione e sintesi tra la visione islamica del mondo e l´apporto di altre tradizioni, in un ardito tentativo di inculturare la loro fede nella nuova epoca in cui vivevano. Tra le loro "cinque tesi", si può ricordare quella del rifiuto di considerare il Corano eterno e increato.La parola di Dio, in quanto sua azione operata verso l´esterno, non potrebbe partecipare alle caratteristiche proprie solo della divinità , tra cui appunto l´eternità. Ne discende il rifiuto degli antropomorfismi e l´interpretazione allegorica di vari passi del Corano. Una simile posizione venne ritenuta troppo intellettualista,capace di ridurre la divinità alla logica dell´uomo ,riducendone la sua assoluta trascendenza. Dopo essere stata per molto tempo emarginata essa è stata recuperata dal moderno riformismo islamico. – mcc43
