Should Religious Minorities Be Concerned About The Rise Of Islamist Governments? Saba Mahmood – Religious Liberty, the Minority Problem and Geopolitics. Event Date: 12 – 13 November Goodenough College Mecklenburgh Square London WC1N 2AB Experiments in political subjectivity The possibility of conceiving practices of citizenship after orientalism points to experiments that uncover, rearticulate and provoke subjugated forms of politics.
Through addressing the intersections between orientalism, colonialism and citizenship (panel 1), exploring possibilities of democratic politics for decolonizing citizenship (panel 2) and troubling universal claims to rights (panel 3), we ask what images of citizenship are emerging in relation to the process of deorientalization? It is this experimentation itself, rather than its outcomes, that constitutes ‘citizenship after orientalism’ as a field of investigation. Keynote lecture by Professor Saba Mahmood (University of California, Berkeley) – Religious Liberty, the Minority Problem and Geopolitics Introduction by Meleiha Malik.

Duricy History of the Black Madonna Genre Important early studies of dark images in France were done by: Marie Durand-Lefebvre (1937); Emile Saillens (1945); and Jacques Huynen (1972). The first notable study of the origin and meaning of the so-called Black Madonnas in English appears to have been presented by Leonard Moss at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science on Dec. 28, 1952. Amazingly, all the images in Moss' study had a reputation for miracles. 1) dark brown or black madonnas with physiognomy and skin pigmentation matching that of the indigenous population. 2) various art forms that have turned black as a result of certain physical factors such as: deterioration of lead-based pigments; accumulated smoke from the use of votive candles; and accumulation of grime over the ages. 3) residual category with no ready explanation.
That a certain percentage of black images falls into the first group seems self-evident. Conclusion. Hanbali Literature [Archive] - Multaqa Ahl al-Hadeeth. Google. James Treat. Project: browse the Gothic Bible. By default the text is presented verse by verse, with selected interlinear translations.

Saba Mahmood: Religious Liberty, the Minority Problem and Geopolitics. Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie: Why Interfaith Dialogue Doesn't Work. I have been participating in interfaith dialogue as a rabbi and Jewish leader for more than 30 years, and most of the time it just doesn't work.
Most of the time -- and it is painful for me to admit this -- it is terribly boring. Most of the time there is a tendency to manufacture consensus, whether it exists or not. Most of the time we go to great lengths to avoid conflict. Most of the time we cover the same ground that we covered last month or the month before. And far too often we finish our session without really knowing the people across the table and what makes them tick religiously. And most of we time we are satisfied with mouthing a few noble, often-repeated sentiments. The result is that most of the time, interfaith discussions are simply excruciating, irrelevant to me and to the world around me. First, meaningful dialogue happens when the conversation turns to our religious differences. As I said, these things happen rarely.
Tabsir.net. An American Girl learning to survive while living in Saudi Arabia. Asma Lamrabet : What does the Qur’an say about the interfaith marriage? What does the Qur’an say about the interfaith marriage?
Asma Lamrabet It goes without saying that the marriage of a Muslim woman to a non-Muslim man is one of the main taboo issues in debates on Islam. According to a broad consensus religiously sterile, a Muslim woman is formally forbidden to marry a non-Muslim man regardless of his religion, while a Muslim man is allowed to get married to a non Muslim woman, mainly a Christian or a Jew, considered by the Islamic schools as “People of the Book”. What does the Qur’an say about this issue and how does it deal with the marriage of Muslim men and women to non-Muslims? In the Qur’an, there is only one verse that clearly tackles this issue. Through this Qur’anic order, the verse clearly forbids the marriage of the believing men and women to polytheists, called at the time “mushrikīn”.
This allusion to “slaves” (men and women) is quite indicative of the moral values that the Qur’anic Revelation tended to inculcate in people. .  Idem. Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin - America's Unfortunate Interfaith Couple. "Across the country, Desi moms can barely contain their glee at pointing out to their daughters how Weiner is what you get when you marry out.
" For those who aren't acquainted with the term 'Desi' - it designates someone of South Asian descent. The Facebook page that carried this amusing message last night revealed a sub plot to the Weiner sex chat saga, namely that Weiner and Abedin are perhaps the highest profile interfaith couple in America and the troubles in their relationship have the potential to be used as another case in point of those issuing dire warnings about interfaith marriages.
Anthony Weiner, as you know even if you live under a rock, was exposed (ahem) Tuesday as having continued to engage in sex chatting with young ladies for over a year after he lost his congressional seat due to the last sexting scandal in 2011. When the news emerged on Tuesday, the mayoral candidate promptly held a press conference. Perhaps they will follow the example of Bill and Hilary Clinton.

Muslim majority societies and Muslims around the world are constantly confronted with the fundamental question of how to implement the penalties prescribed in the Islamic penal code.
Evoking the notion of sharî’a, or more precisely hudûd, the terms of the debate are defined by central questions emerging from thought provoking discussions taking place between ulamâ’ (scholars) and/or Muslim masses: How to be faithful to the message of Islam in the contemporary era? How can a society truly define itself as “Islamic” beyond what is required in the daily practices of individual private life? But a critical and fruitful debate has not yet materialized. Several currents of thought exist in the Islamic world today and disagreements are numerous, deep and recurring. Among these, a small minority demands the immediate and strict application of hudûd, assessing this as an essential prerequisite to truly defining a “Muslim majority society” as “Islamic” . • What is happening on the ground? 1. 2.

Muslim boy with a love for tattoos. Health& Living Thursday, 14 March 2013 20:24 Written by Polly Kamukama Munir Suat's passion for body started in 2004 while still in secondary school Munir Suat developed a passion for body art in 2004 while in S.1 at Turkish Light Academy, Wakiso.
He started out using a Bic pen to draw pictures on his arms. “I used to charge a fee of about Shs 1,000; so, I basically never ran short of breakfast money,” says 21-year-old Suat recalls, revealing the hype motivated him to research more about tattooing. He used to spend much of his holiday in internet cafes, reading about tattoos. “It drove my parents crazy because I hardly did anything at home besides surfing about tattooing,” he said of his affluent, mixed-race family. His uncle is a pilot teaching at Soroti flying school, and young Suat had pilot ambitions because of him. Ditching ‘real’ job “But my heart was already made up.

Islam and women: the case of the tablighi jama`at. SEHR, volume 5, issue 1: Contested PolitiesUpdated February 27, 1996 the case of the tablighi jama`at Barbara Metcalf The Tablighi Jama`at is a quietist, apolitical movement of spiritual guidance and renewal that originated in the Indian subcontinent, whose networks now reach around the world. Today Tablighi Jama`at's annual meetings in Pakistan and Bangladesh are attended by over a million people, and, even though meetings in India are smaller, participants may well be as many. Tabligh networks extend throughout the world, not only to places of Indo-Muslim settlement like North America and Britain, but to continental Europe, Africa, Malaysia, and elsewhere.
Due to its absence from the political arena and low institutional profile, there are relatively few studies of the Tablighi Jama`at, and most of this literature is strikingly silent on the involvement of women in the Jama`at. History of the tablighi jama`at Different roles are assigned to all members of a mission. Conclusion Notes 1. The Muslim Institute. Mawla - Oxford Islamic Studies Online. Protector, master.

Is Interracial Dating Biblical for Christian Teens - Interracial Dating - Christian Teens - Relationships - Race Relations - Bible - Scripture. Question: Is Interracial Dating Biblical? Unfortunately prejudice and racism is still a worldwide issue.
In countries that have a variety of races in its population the question of whether or not interracial dating is an acceptable practice for Christians is appropriate. In order to answer the question we need to take a close look at God’s Word. Answer: What About the Old Testament? Some people use scripture in the Old Testament to try and prohibit interracial dating and marriage. But Paul Said… What about people being unequally yoked? God Loves Us All God created us all, and that includes the color of our skin.
