Western Muslim Conservatism

Western Muslim Conservatism

The article on the so-called “Progressive Islam”, published on our website, raises the question of the attitude towards that ideology and it’s opponents. As for “Progressive Islam,” which denies the basic and consensual principles of Islamic theology, nothing to speak about — it is not Islam.

Muslim Rum – Shaykh Ahmad Ali Adani

Muslim Rum – Shaykh Ahmad Ali Adani

There is no such thing that we are part of a generic nation of “Westerners”. No such people or tribe exists, let alone in Ontario or Perth. We must accept our ancestry which places us as descendants, quite likely, of ‘Īsū, and thus the immediate offspring of Ishāq, peace upon him.

Clans of Sapient Virtue – Shaykh Ahmad Ali Adani

Clans of Sapient Virtue – Shaykh Ahmad Ali Adani

Rather than a focus on feeding ideological clans, which met their extinction as quickly as they sprang into life, notable Muslims in the past took great care to nurture evergreen trees of excellence within their households. That was true of Morocco and Jakarta, or Syria and Khorasan in between. In this nimble writing, which is meant to be no more[Read More…]

Can European Muslims ignore “American discourse”?

Can European Muslims ignore “American discourse”?

Some native European Muslims who, like us, do not support the view of Islam as a religion of only non-whites or immigrants, nevertheless believe that we make the mistake by adopting American “racial” discourse in Europe.

Some mistakes of European Muslims: shaykh Ahmad Ali Adani

Some mistakes of European Muslims: shaykh Ahmad Ali Adani

When one passes from the darkness of the kufr to the light of iman, an enormous shift takes place, across an abyss. This is accompanied, in most cases, and it is logical that this is so, by a strong discomfort towards the world of kufr and towards one’s personality prior to the acceptance of Islam.

Independence and unity for European Muslims

Independence and unity for European Muslims

European Islam – an attempt at operationalisation

European Islam – an attempt at operationalisation

European Islam – an attempt at operationalisation, an essay by Hamdija Begovic We are constantly hearing about a so-called “European Islam” that needs to emerge if our future presence on the continent is to become conflict-free. By establishing such an Islam, customised for Europe, we will be accepted, it is claimed; it will enable us all to experience a new[Read More…]
