Latino Muslim community in the US

Latino Muslim community in the US

On January 30, 2016, Muslims and non-Muslims alike gathered in Houston, Texas, for the most highly anticipated event of the season: the grand opening of IslamInSpanish’s Centro Islamico, a new nexus to bring Islam to Latinos. Bright, sunny, nearly cloudless skies graced the sizable throng, most seated under a protective canopy while the rest stood bathed in the warmth of a[Read More…]

Islam and the Question of Nationalism (Zaid Shakir)

Islam and the Question of Nationalism (Zaid Shakir)

Introduction The nation-state, which involves wedding a specific people to a sovereign territorial entity, is a modern phenomenon. For example, the unity of the Italian city-states into a coherent modern nation-state did not occur until the late 1850s. The unification of Germany under Prussia did not occur until 1871. Even though there were many French kingdoms, and even a French[Read More…]

Caucasian and European

Caucasian and European

We’ve got an interesting commentary about using the term “Caucasian”, “Caucasian Muslims”: “I think you are talking about White European Muslims. I am a descendant of Caucasian Muslims and those are not our issues. Caucasian is a fake umbrella term for white people. If you do not come from Dagestan, Chechnya, or that area, you are not Caucasian. …Now that[Read More…]

Why Western Muslim Blanqueamento has no perspectives?

White men’s miscalculation or why Western Muslim Blanqueamento has no perspectives? Marriages between different groups is a very sensitive issue – cause of many women`s, men`s and children`s feelings. That`s why we should determine in the beginning of this article, that there is a difference between people, that consider their marriage as their own happiness and people that consider marriage[Read More…]

Hui: the based nation of Chinese Muslims

Hui: the based nation of Chinese Muslims

Walking through the Muslim quarter of Xi’an is a fascinating venture into a hodge-podge of cultures. The smell of lamb skewers and hot spices wafts through the crowded streets. Chinese-looking women in headscarfs stretch noodles, while an old man with a white prayer hat stands in front of a mosque with a distinctly Chinese arched roof.   This is the home[Read More…]

Spanish and Slavic Muslim emirates in the Islamic Andalus

Spanish and Slavic Muslim emirates in the Islamic Andalus

Following the collapse and disintegration of the Umayyad Caliphate of Cordoba during the civil wars of 1009–1013, al-Andalus fragmented into about 20-30 kingdoms known as the party kingdoms, reyes de taifas or mulūk al-tawā’if. Some of these emirates, such as the Taifa of Silves, were little more than self-governing city-states while others, such as the Taifa of Seville, controlled large swathes of territory.[Read More…]

What is the Rum? (Shaykh Ali Adani)

What is the Rum? (Shaykh Ali Adani)

That the Rum mean “the Byzantines” is purely Imran Hoosein’s (erroneous) view. We have already amply addressed that point and debunked it in our writings. Rum is, according to all the classical genealogists, lexicographers etc., not any do-it-yourself modern theorist, the son of Isu (Esau), son of Ishaq, ‘alayhis-salam, who went west, and from whom the “Romans” in a broad[Read More…]

Civic and racial identity of American Muslims (Dr.Sherman Jackson)

Civic and racial identity of American Muslims (Dr.Sherman Jackson)

“Our problem as Muslims is not that we have commitments to different collective identities; our problem is that we tend to treat our collective identities as if they represented ultimate truth, as if they were Islam itself, as if they were an idol though whose appeasement we derive some sense of psycho-spiritual well-being or fulfill some cosmic mission. Our collective[Read More…]

Our mission – Islam for Europeans
