Why Islam is True – Jacob Williams

Why Islam is True – Jacob Williams

My knowledge on this subject is obviously superficial and nothing I say is authoritative. However, in case setting out my understanding of the reasons that Islam is true might help others by communicating the ideas of far better minds than my own, I have done below. First, belief in the single, unitary God of the Abrahamic tradition (Islam, Christianity, Judaism)[Read More…]

What is “Progressive Islam”? – Dr.Shadee Elmasrey

What is “Progressive Islam”? – Dr.Shadee Elmasrey

The struggle of our generation is resisting the Progressivist zeitgeist that baits you in by effusive promises of tolerance, only to then turn on you the minute you accept it, ramming conformity down your throat and suffocating any form of dissent. The weak-willed succumb and proceed to tick off box after box of blasphemy after blasphemy until the religion is[Read More…]

Islam and European knighthood

Islam and European knighthood

Cultural innovations in Al-Andalus

Cultural innovations in Al-Andalus

Towards an Islamic West

Towards an Islamic West

If my impertinence can be forgiven, I’d like to present a few modest thoughts as to why an Islamic West is so important and how it might, insha’allah, be brought about.
