  • Muslims don't worship the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

    According to Muslim belief, based on the religion of Islam, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the last and final messenger of God. He was the last prophet to be sent by God, with a revelation from God, to mankind. The role of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was to convoy the message he was given, the Quran, to the people. In Islam, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is not deified, he is not God, nor is he part of God as a Trinity in Christianity. Read More
  • Secularism debate with head of National Secularist Society, Terry Sanderson

    I would like to present a video featuring a debate between me and Terry Sanderson, President of the oldest and largest Secularist campaigning organisation in the UK, the National Secular Society (NSS).The topic was to what degree should religion (or Secularism) influence the State?It was an exciting debate, which touched upon the issue of Gay Marriage, the failure of Secularism to bring peace and stability in MOST countries where it has been tried, the false claim of Secular State neutrality, and the oppression of religious conscience both in the West, and around the world – Read More
  • The verse of the sword explained

    A common verse quoted by the critics of Islam is a verse known as the verse of the sword, which says: Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (9:5) So this verse is quoted and it is then argued that this verse proves that Islam is a violent religion that commands the Muslims to go out and commit terrorism. Read More
  • Terrorism has no justification in Islam

    Modern day terrorism carried out by Muslims belonging to organizations like Al-Qaeda, or Al-Qaeda affiliated groups, has a context behind them. These groups often list their grievances or the causes behind their attacks, often pointing to western foreign policy issues, such as the invasions and interference in the Muslim world, like the war in Afghanistan, and Iraq etc. In the recent case of Kenya, where a shopping mall was attacked by the Somali militant group al-Shabab, they cited Kenya’s military role in their country, for the reason behind their attack.

  • Ottoman woman during the advent of western feminism

    “As to women, as many, if not more than men, are to be seen in the streets [i.e. going about their daily activities, etc] […] I think I never saw a country where women may enjoy so much liberty, and free from all reproach, as in Turkey [...] The Turks in their conduct towards our sex are an example to all other nations; [...] and I repeat it, sir, I think no women have so much liberty, safe from apprehension, as the Turkish – and I think them in their manner of living, capable of being the happiest creatures breathing.” - Lady Elizabeth Craven, A Journey Through the Crimea to Constantinople, 1789[i] Lady Elizabeth Craven, 18th century travel writer, playwright and author, made these observations about the women of the Ottoman Caliphate (an Islamic state) in 1789, Read More
  • Forced marriages and Islam

    It’s become common to the issue of forced marriages, being linked to Islam, that Islam somehow teaches, and sanctions for the act of a forced marriage. The act of a forced marriage is when either the husband or wife have no say in the marriage, and against their will, are married off anyway. So what does Islam have to say about forced marriages? Does Islam sanction it? Does Islam call for it? Is there any Islamic text that says you can marry a lady against her will, to force her into a marriage? The answer is a clear no, in fact Islam says quite the opposite, Read More
