Imam Ziaullah Khan

June 29th, 2008 No comments

Imam Ziaullah Khan is Director of the Centre For Islamic Development in Halifax, Canada.

The CID is a community-oriented outreach organization. The Centre was established with the intent of providing a social support and educational outlet for the Muslim community, to understand Islam, and thus to defend it. The Centre provides Islamic courses on comparative religion and other areas of Islamic law, jurisprudence and understanding. A Qur’an memorisation program is available five days a week for men, women and children; these and other functions help Muslims living in the West keep their Islamic indentity. Another focal point of the Centre is countering the adverse and distorted views put forth on Islam and Muslims, through the media and otherwise. At the Centre, special efforts are made to promote and disseminate accurate information about Islam.

Sufis and Salafis of the West: Discord and the Hope of Unity

June 28th, 2008 No comments

Here is an interesting article posted by Yahya Birt on August 26th, 2007 at 10:37 am on his website.

Last week the question of Muslim unity came up, as it often does, on the English-medium Muslim blogosphere. One of the prominent young American scholars, Imam Suhaib Webb, who is currently studying at the al-Azhar in Cairo, Sunni Islam’s most august centre of Islamic learning, commented that:

Over the last 15 yrs the West has become a waste land for the wars that have taken place between both [the Sufi and Salafi] schools. In their attempt to derive authenticity, each has staked a claim to traditionalism as defined by the parameters of their learning and understanding. The problem with both is that a monolith is eventually given birth to that allows each to, in the name of tradition and tolerance, destroy each other with words, pens and so forth. Initially, one must admit, that our salafi brethren were exceedingly rude and outrageous in their attacks upon the sufis and the asharis. Then, sometime in the late 90’s and definitely post 911 some of the Sufis were given a window of opportunity and, instead of seeking to mend fences with the (moderate) salafis they begin to launch attacks on them from every angle, questioning their ijazas, resorting to tabloid type journalism and excluding them from the discourse. There is a famous Usoli principle [in legal reasoning] that says, “An extreme will only give birth to its opposite.”

Al-Habib Ali al-Jifri delivers a powerful lecture about revelation and the need for divine word from God.

He attributes the modern crisis of humanity to the consequences of a world driven by mere desires and impulses. He explains that only through revelation does one understand his purpose in life, and therefore sees his existence in the world as a sacred trust.

A message to the muslim youth

June 22nd, 2008 No comments

A great speech where Moulana talks about our nafs and how we should not follow it. He talks about all the temptations which give false contentment … about how the youth in other times struggled for this deen. He briefly tells the story about the 7 Sleepers and their sacrifices.
